I attended the pre-release party to the Style Warriors collection and let me tell you...I have never been to a pre-release party so I figured it wouldn't be sooo chaotic....WRONG!!! OMG, the line wasn't long or anything but inside was a MAD HOUSE!!!! They had 2 setups of the collection on each side and everyone was all over the place. I swear I couldn't get around anywhere. I did have a martini and a mojito ice tea. Overall, it was a good experience but it was so last minute that I came unprepared. I didn't bring a camera and I was on my work clothes looking like "caca."
Anywho, on to the products. After looking at the display, there are a lot of products that can be dupeable. For example, the solor bits. They reminded me of pigments like Muave, Gold Mode, and I forgot what other one. So I passed on those but my bestie picked up two of them. I'll be getting a sample from her. LOL. The lippies were ok. None really caught my attention. Just the packaging. The packaging is super cute!!!! I mean who can resist zebra and leapard prints??? The shadows didn't catch my attention only the Vibrant Grape e/s which is a PRO item. Tempting is already on the permanent collection, Bright Future is the yellowish gold one which reminds me of Goldmine, Soft Force is a highlighter e/s than can very much be dupeable and finally, the Night Manuevers e/s (charcoal brown color) looked like something I already owned but I think I will be going back to get that one. The blushers were nice. I like them both, Eversun and On A Mission. The nail polishes looked awesome but I refuse to pay $11 for them. The lipglasses were ok. None really caught my attention except for the bright purple one which is called Fierce and Fabulous. I skipped on these. The lipsticks were ok as well. I only purchased one of them. The bronzing stuff like the leg spray and lustre drops, looked great but I passed on those because I know I wouldn't be using them. I also passed on the face bronzers since I'm already brown as can be and own the Refined Golden bronzer.
I ended up purchasing Vibrant Grape e/s, On A Mission blush, and Brave New Bronze lipstick. I really wanted the Golden Bronze loose powder but they were sold out!!!! The MUA said they have that on the permanent line so I guess I'll get that next time.
On a side note, this is my personal opinion of the products that I saw today. I really loved the packaging but I wasn't so excited when I saw them in person. However, I will be going back and purchasing another e/s, the Golden Bronze loose powder, and maybe grab that purplish lipglass.
If you guys have any questions don't hesitate to ask. I check this baby often!!!
