IsaDora returns to Walgreens

walgreens.com, that is. 😊

After an absence of nearly 10 years, Swedish beauty brand IsaDora is returning to the United States.

Walgreens had carried IsaDora at its stores until 2008. I wasn’t smitten by its displays and didn’t get into the products until Paula Begoun raved about IsaDora’s eye shadows.

Would you believe that I still have IsaDora’s eye shadow quartet in Bronzing Plums and its 5-pan eye shadow palette in Matte Chocolates?

You may shop IsaDora on walgreens.com beginning December 2017.

I’m a sucker for neutral eye shadow palettes, and when walgreens.com begins selling IsaDora, here’s what I’m going to buy:

Jane Iredale’s Daytime eyeshadow palette – the perfect neutral eyeshadow palette

I don’t know about you, but I get overwhelmed by those 10- to 12-pan eyeshadow palettes à la Urban Decay’s Naked eye shadow palette and its countless dupes. The max for me is a 5-pan eye shadow palette, and Jane Iredale’s Daytime eyeshadow palette fits the bill.

The Jane Iredale Daytime eyeshadow palette was re-designed to create a generous round pan for its slightly shimmery eye shadow Oyster. Oyster makes a great highlighter.

The matte eyeshadows are, L to R, are Almond, Cappuccino, Dark Suede, and Charcoal. Almond and Cappuccino are great mid-tone shadows for the eyelid, while Dark Suede is great for the crease and Charcoal is great as an eyeliner.

All eyeshadows are silky and pigmented. Altogether, the perfect neutral eyeshadow palette.

Prices: $59.00 at dermstore.com (Ebates cash back) and $59.00 at janeiredale.com. I bought mine on jet.com (Ebates cash back) for $24.70.

My priorities are all eff’ed up. I tossed in the Jane Iredale Daytime eyeshadow palette merely to qualify for the $35.00 threshold for free shipping on jet.com – what I really wanted were L.A. Colors matte eyeshadow palettes at $1.66 apiece (yep, you read that right – more about that later.)
