NEW from Performance Colors + GIVEAWAY!!

On Monday I received a package in the mail from Tiffany at Performance Colors. She sent me some samples of her new products, plus some full-size products for a giveaway! If you'd like to enter, all the information on how to enter is at the bottom of this post.
Tiffany from Performance Colors sent me these samples to review.

Samples of the new Matte Cream Eyeshadows
L-R: Pastel Pink, Earth Taupe, Wallflower, Twilight


Pastel Pink $5 for full size or 5 samples for $5

Earth Taupe $5 for full size or 5 samples for $5

Wallflower $5 for full size or 5 samples for $5

Twilight $5 for full size or 5 samples for $5

Swatches of the Performance Colors Matte Cream Eyeshadows
L-R: Pastel Pink, Earth Taupe, Wallflower, Twilight
I wore Earth Taupe today and it wore really well! I didn't use a primer and after applying it to my eyelids using my finger, it dried almost to a powder finish. I got a few hours of crease-free wear before I noticed a bit of creasing. These cream eyeshadows are completely matte and easy to apply.
Gel Eyeliner Ingredients

New Gel Eyeliners in Mermaid, Poison Apple and Midnight
$5 for one full size eyeliner
3 for $10 or
5 samples for $5


Poison Apple


Swatches of the Performance Colors Gel Eyeliners in Mermaid, Poison Apple and Midnight

These gel eyeliners will set after about a minute (which is great in case you make a mistake!) and come in 12 different colours. Tiffany sent me these three which I was eager to try out. I found that the consistency of Mermaid and Midnight were a bit dry but still relatively easy to work with. Poison Apple has a great consistency and applies evenly and opaque. All three blend easily but Mermaid and Midnight may need to be applied several times to get them opaque.

Semi-Matte Lip Color Ingredients

Semi-Matte Lip Color in Hibiscus
$5 for one full size
3 for $10 or
3 samples for $3

Semi-Matte Lip Color in Hibiscus
Hibiscus is a bright pinky-coral colour with no shimmer. This is what makes it 'semi-matte'. It does have a bit of a glossy finish to it, but otherwise can come across as matte. It applies smoothly and has a pleasant vanilla scent.

Restorative Lip Colors in Islander and South of France
$5 for one full size
3 for $10 or
3 samples for $3

Restorative Lip Color in Islander

Restorative Lip Color in South of France

These Restorative Lip Colors are just like the ones I have reviewed a few weeks ago. They contain some great nourishing ingredients like Vitamin E, Jojoba oil and Shea butter. Islander is a soft pink colour with a hint of berry while South of France is like Islander, but with more of a berry tint to it.  Both contain some shimmer and have a vanilla scent.

Lip Repair

Lip Repair
This Lip Repair has the same nourishing ingredients as the Lip Colors, but not so much colour. This is great if you want a lip balm that won't provide any colour to your lips. When applied, it looks like you're wearing a bit of lip gloss. It doesn't feel sticky at all but will make your lips feel soft and smooth.
