We’re already pushing into spring but the Iman Alter Ego Collection still managed to catch my eye when I dropped by Walgreens last week. Iman launched the Alter Ego Collection for fall a little while ago but I’ve been so busy going crazy at Ulta that I haven’t had much time to hit the drugstore aisles like I used to.
During an impromptu visit to Walgreens, I stumbled across the Alter Ego Collection display filled with new Luxury Moisturizing Lipsticks (which I LOVE!), Luxury Lip Shimmers a new Luxury Contour Trio too. The makeup junkie in me wanted it all but I managed to walk away with just 3 new products.
My top picks were:
- Rebel Luxury Moisturizing Lipstick chocolate brown
- Muse Luxury Lip Shimmer light peachy beige with golden shimmer
- Luxury Contour Trio
I’m a huge fan of the Luxury Moisturizing Lipsticks so I had to grab at least one shade. My top pick was Rebel because I’ve been addicted to 90s brown lips and the shade is great for winter. Plus, I already know the formula is going to be super creamy, with a light sheen and long-lasting so it was a must have.
I don’t usually haul glosses too much but thanks to Iman’s crafty use of mini testers I was suckered into Muse too. It’s a beautiful nude gloss that looks like it’ll be super easy to wear for WOC. There’s also a hint of gold shimmer to make lips look juicy and pouty.
I thought the highlight and contour trend would die down a bit this year but 2016 is already turning out to be the year of highlighting and contouring–part two. We’ve seen new highlight and contour goodies from NYX, Maybelline and now Iman with the new Luxury Contour Trio. The Luxury Contour trio features a shimmering highlighter, bronzer and contour that’ll work great for brown skin. The highlight looks soft yet beautiful and the bronzer is sure to add a nice sheen and touch of warmth too. I’m a little worried about the contour powder though. I prefer my contour to be as matte as possible to the slight trace of shimmer is off-putting but it just may work for me. Looks like I’ll be rocking the Luxury Contour Trio this weekend to find out!
