I picked up Reign and the palette is really pigmented… The other palettes are called Overthrow, Revolution, and Ascension. Grab one (or all) at Walmart.

Rude Cosmetics is finally launching Book 7 of eyeshadows. If you recall, there were issues with manufacturing which resulted in Book 8 being released first (no complaints here!). Anyway, Book 7 is called Rudementary Spyshadows and has 35 shades. The palette will cost $21.50 and will be available on Rude’s site sometime within the week.

Essence Cosmetics has four new palettes inspired by global cities. Hello New York is definitely inspired by the saying “the city that never sleeps”; the palette features smoky shades like blues, grays, and other neutral shades. G’day Sydney is a mix of warm and cool tones, befitting the weather and beaches in the capital of Australia. Ola Rio means “hello Rio” and I certainly said hello to this palette’s warm tones. Last but not least, Salut Paris is the lovely and flirty palette, similar to Paris’ reputation as the City of Love. All four palettes are available on Essence’s site.

Geek Chic Cosmetics released a huge spring collection and I am so thrilled to have this indie brand back in a Roundup.

Glamlite Cosmetics is finally launching their second food-themed eyeshadow palette and I absolutely love it! The Burger palette is packaged like a bun with the palette being the “cheese” on top of the burger. It’s so innovative and I love that the shades correspond to the toppings you usually see on burgers like pickles, tomato, ketchup, etc. The palette is currently available for pre-order on Glamlite’s site for $40 and you can bet that it will sell out quickly.

Withlove Cosmetics is a brand I recently found and I love their latest palette called The Blue One. As you can imagine, the palette has blue shades and a couple cool toned shades. There are mattes and glitters so if you don’t like glitter eyeshadow you may not like it. The rest of us can grab the palette on the indie brand’s site for $20.
