Makeup Monday: Circa By Eva Mendes | Eyeshadow & Cream Blush Review

Hello! Lovelies

Recently I was wandering the makeup section of Walgreens and I came across a brand I had never heard of. It drew me in because of the nice display and packaging.
Circa is a cosmetic range sold only at Walgreens created by actress Eva Mendes.

Anytime a celebrity comes out with a makeup or fragrance line you wonder "Is this really going to be any good?!?" sometimes it seams the name is what sells the product and not because its any good. But luckily that wasn't the case with this.

Circa is a beautiful line. From the packaging to the actual products. They went all out with there first releases. It's not just a few eye shadows or a lipstick, or two. They offer face products like: powder, bb cream and foundation to eye shadow trios, single shadows, & blush both powder and cream, to gorgeous lipsticks. Since I was new to the line and hadn't heard anything about it I just tried a few things to start with. But after playing around with them a bit I'd love to try more.

When I swatched all three of these products they looked beautiful. And when I applied them to my skin they looked just as nice. I really love how creamy and easy to blend the eye shadows are. They are very nice for being a drugstore brand. And the blush is lovely. It's just what you want in a cream blush. Smooth and highly pigmented. Now the only thing I could see as to being a draw back is that they are on the higher end of the drugstore range. The blush was $13 and shadows were $12. But with that being said the quality is really nice. And the packaging looks high end. Very elegant and classic looking. Another great thing is that they are made in America. A lot of other cheaper drugstore items aren't. So with all that being said I think you are getting a great product for the money you are spending.
 
After trying these I know I will try others. I had my eye on a few lipsticks and some pretty powder blushes. So I can't wait to see how they are.
 
There really is nothing bad for me to say about this brand and the products I've tried so far. If you have seen the line and wondered if it was any good I'd 100% recommend trying it out.
 
If you'd like to try any of these products for yourself they can be bought online or in store at Walgreens and Drugstore.com
 
Pros:
High quality
Made in America
Nice Packaging
 
Cons:
Only available at Walgreens
 
Have you tried anything from Circa? I'd love to know what you thought of it.
