Pin-Up Cosmetics Eye Shadows

I'm all about eye shadows. In a matter of minutes, the right shades can light up your entire face. As a makeup lover, I feel it my duty to inform my readers whenever I come across products that I adore. Enter Pin-Up Cosmetics.

This line was created in November 2007 by San Francisco native, April Lacey, a professional makeup artist turned entrepreneur. Being a member of the cosmetics industry, Lacey knows exactly what it takes to please her customers. She has combined her love for the 1940/50s era and black and while films to create something quite magical.

I, personally, am a huge fan of the line's 3-Pan Palette in Frisky! This eye shadow trio (which is also Lacey's favorite because of its versatility) is comprised of three flattering colors; a taupe/lavender hue, a pale mauve, and basic black. Also included is a double-ended applicator equipped with a shadow blender and a liner brush on the other. 

I have never really been able to achieve the whole using eyeshadow as a liner thing...until now. Once the "liner" is applied, it's on. It stays in place for hours and won't come off until it's washed off. And, retailing for $15, this palette is priced just right.

I also love the Mineral Loose Eye Dust in Shiny Gold. It can be worn over eye shadow, or even lightly brushed over the cheeks for a golden glow. The loose eye dusts are sold for $10 and come in a variety of stunning shades.

If you don't have enough time to play up your eyes, take Lacey's tip and pamper your pout. According to this makeup guru, "A great creme gloss looks great on every woman and lip gloss takes no time at all."
