Spotted: New IMAN Perfect Eyeshadow Pencils and Amplify Mascara (Plus: Reader Swatches)

Attention IMAN fans! Have you seen the new twist-up shadows pencils and mascara yet? If not, I have a pic of the display for you today, as well as some swatches! Longtime photo-contributor @roguedarkholme on Instagram spotted this display last week and was nice enough to share pics and swatches with us. I completely forgot to ask her where she spotted this, but I think it was at Walgreens.

IMAN Cosmetics Perfect Eyeshadow Pencil Collection

@roguedarkholme was nice enough to swatch all of the pencils (there are testers in the display--yay!) and shared the above pic. I asked her if these are smudge-proof and she said that they are not. So it looks like they're more like Nyx eyeshadow pencils rather than Milani Shadow Eyez. 

As I metioned at the top of this post, there is also a new mascara in this display called Amplify Mascara. It only comes in one shade: Black Ink. You can view more info and/or purchase HEREHERE or HERE.

Have you spotted this display in your area yet? Thoughts? I'm loving how richly pigmented that navy blue shade, Forbidden, looks in @roguedarkholme's swatch above. 

Thanks again, @roguedarkholme, for the great sighting and swatches! And thanks to reader Marie for the tip about these being on the Target site!
