CIRCA Precious Metal Collection

I'm totally new to the CIRCA beauty scene, but recently got a chance to try some of the latest from the line in their new, limited-edition Precious Metals Collection. Now available at Walgreens (displays are often right in front of the beauty counter), the products are paired together for a seasonal look, but they're also available individually in case one product in particular catches your eye.

Color Saturated Eye Crayon - Always a sucker for a one-and-done eye product, I was most excited to try these - especially the velveteen blue shade called Regal Sapphire. Chocolate Diamond and Sparkling Citrine are beautiful as well, but deep blue done with such rich pigmentation is a rarity in the drugstore. These not work well worn under shadows as an all-over color base, but also worn alone. Prep with a primer for fool-proof lasting power, but I also experience crease and fade-free wear without one. Check out the look below for a combo of all three worn on the lid!
Optical Illusion Lash Lengthening Mascara - True to its name, this mascara offers length and definition that lasts steadfast throughout the day - just take a look at the before and after below! The very plain looking want took me by surprise with how it transformed my lashes. Combined with the latin power, and this mascara is quickly making it's way to the top of my favorites pile.
Vivid Vinyl Eyeliner Fluid (Blue Topaz) - For a little hint of sparkle in your eyeliner, this is one way to go. While I'm not typically a fan of the long brush applicator for eyeliner, I'm impressed with how pigmented this liner is given how prevalent diluted shimmery drugstore formulas are out there.
Fade to Black Precision Eye Ink - This is easily the most precise eyeliner pen I've ever tried from the drugstore. The pigmentation is inky black and flows smoothly during application - no pulling or tugging. It dries to a luxe-looking matte black that lasts until it's time to remove.

Overall, I'm impressed with my first experience with what's a relatively uncharted drugstore brand!
