Rock & Republic Nailed & Tempting Eye

R&R are my new favorite eyeshadows. I only have these 2 and I just got them but I absolutely love them. They are like Chantecaille on steroids. They have the same silky, finely milled texture as Chante but with the pigmented punch of ... I don't know, honestly. I can't think of anything to compare them to. Also used in this eye is Urban Decay 24/7 in Oil Slick. I picked this up over the weekend, swatched it in store on my hand and fell in love. Unfortunately, it doesn't look anything on the eye like it does on the hand. The glitter/shimmer doesn't show up at all on me but somehow ended up in my eye within about 30 seconds. It looks sort of matte like shoe polish. I just don't care for it at all. I think this may be the first 24/7 that I've not been thrilled with. For highlight, I used Chanel Star. My brow looks a little funky and that's because I've been very carefully drawing on the outer 1/3 (the tails). Long story. Hope they grow back soon, though because I'm fairly happy with the shape of the brow other than that, lol.

Gorgeous EOTD! I love purples on you. =)

And awww.. I am kind of sad I never tried anything from R&R.

Thanks so much! I want all of them now, lol. I"m hoping it will be back on hautelook soon. Last time I bought 3 of their blushes and love those as well. It took me a long time to give them a try b/c I figured it would be mediocre product in luxe packaging, just using their name to sell more crap. I couldn't have been more wrong.
