THE DREAM PALETTE CHALLENGE DAY 6 : DREAM Mono-Chromatic PALETTE

Published July 10, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag
This is a challenge that was created by newlipstickclub1 , shimmershanny , and pan.o.ramics on Instagram.

Day 1: Dream Mono-Chromatic Palette: Pick 9 shades all based on your favorite color to create your own mini mono-chromatic palette

  • As always the picture on the left will be the picture with no flash and the one on the right will be the one with flash …. All swatches are done on bare skin with no primer and in 1 pass.

The color story I chose for my Monochromatic palette is PURPLE of course!!! Not only is it my favorite color on the planet, it’s also the official color of Spoonie Awareness. So let’s take a look at what my dream mono-chromatic palette would look like.

The shade from left to right are as follows:

Earthshine (pinky lavender with a blue duo-chrome flip – metallic) from the It’s My Pleasure Palette from ColourPop $12 on their website. This is such a pretty purpler, pinky, blue shifting eye shadow that is perfect for the inner corner or just tapped over the middle 1/3 of the mobile lid.

Mr. Sandman (icy rose with a silver sheen – metallic) from the It’s My Pleasure Palette from ColourPop $12 on their website. This shade reminds me a little of MAC’s Blue Brown pigment in the way that it shifts. I love this color paired with a mossy green metallic.

Tropicana (pastel lilac – matte) from the ELF Retro Paradise Palette $14 on their website. This is a great little powdery lilac shade that’s great for the mobile lid but can also be used as a brow line highlight for a more avant garde look.

Neutrino (purple with a blue sheen – metallic) a ColourPop Single Pan Eyeshadow $4.50 on their website. I have said so much already about this shade … so I will simply say …. when ever I have a chance to add this shade to a look …. I do because I just simply love it.

Do or Dough (bright lavender with blue duo-chrome flip – metallic) from the It’s My Pleasure Palette from ColourPop $12 on their website. This one has so much dimension to it that it’s just the perfect companion to any purple look , be it smokey, subtle, or glam.

Guilt Trip (smoky purple – shimmer) from the Urban Decay Born to Run Palette $49 at Sephora. I don’t reach for this one as much as I reach for some of my other purple shadows but every time I do I love the look … this is my most subtle purple shadow I own … it’s a bit smokey…. a bit sultry.

Chick Lit (deep amethyst – metallic) from the It’s My Pleasure Palette from ColourPop $12 on their website. This shade is just perfection … simply put …. PERFECTION.

Candace (true berry based purple – matte) from the Warrior III Palette from Juvia’s Place $20 on their website. I love to use this shade as a base for my less punchy purple shades … it really punches up the purple in any shade.

and finally Sleeper (eggplant – matte) a ColourPop Single Pan Eyeshadow $4.50 on their website. I use this one to deepen my outer v and outer 1/3 of the mobile lid. I also use it to deepen the lower lash line too.

Well … there you have it dolls … my dream 9 pan mono-chrome palette … what would be your dream 9 pan mono-chrome palette?

I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in good health and spirits.

Remember dolls … Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

THE DREAM PALETTE CHALLENGE DAY 5 : DREAM FACE PALETTE

Published July 9, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag
This is a challenge that was created by newlipstickclub1 , shimmershanny , and pan.o.ramics on Instagram.

Day 5: Dream Face Palette: Pick 4 shades from any of your palettes that could be turned into your dream face palette (blush, bronzer, highlight, etc

  • As always the picture on the left will be the picture with no flash and the one on the right will be the one with flash …. All swatches are done on bare skin with no primer and in 1 pass.

The shades that I chose for this dream face palette from left to right are :

Contour : Matte Hung (a grey based deep taupe – matte) from the Balm Meet Matt(e) Nude Palette was $42 but is no longer available on their site …. it can be found on other sites such as Bridgette’s Boutique. I have often used this shade whilst traveling, to save space in my makeup bag, as a contour. What I like most about it is that it’s not overly pigmented so you don’t really have to worry that you’ll go over board and end up with a grey muddy mess. It blends out perfectly and never goes patchy.

Bronzer: Kufuru (syrup brown – matte) from the Warrior II Palette by Juvia’s Place $20 on their website. This shadow is my perfect bronzer shade! It’s got just enough red undertone in it to be a pretty bronzer. It’s super pigmented so you have to go in with a light hand and just a touch of product at a time. This shadow, as a bronzer, lasts all day… even thought the Florida humidity.

Blush: Spiced (a red based mid-toned coral – matte) from the ELF Retro Paradise Palette $14 on their website. I love me a good coral blush … and even though I’ve used eyeshadows as contour and bronzer and highlighter and even lipstick toppers from time to time, I never thought to use one as a blush! This shade when I swatched it for a blush contender was just so beautiful! It’s got the right amount of red to it to make the cheeks look sun kissed and the right saturation of coral to give you pop of color to the cheeks. I plan to use this shade for my next Face of the Day look.

and finally Highlighter: Moremi (white gold – metallic) from the Warrior Palette by Juvia’s Place $20 on their website. I’ve used this shadow as highlighter a few times now. It’s a super beaming highlight so I go in with a fluffy highlighter brush and a super light hand so as to not go over board. But the undertone of this gold shadow is perfect for that everyday sort of highlight.

Well dolls, there you have it … my 4 pan dream face palette. What shades would you pick for your dream face palette?

Hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits and health.

Remember …. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

XOXO, Nita

THE DREAM PALETTE CHALLENGE DAY 4: Dream Colorful Palette

Published July 8, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag
This is a challenge that was created by newlipstickclub1 , shimmershanny , and pan.o.ramics on Instagram.

Day 4: Dream Colorful Palette: Pick 9 colorful shades from any of your palettes to create your own mini colorful palette

  • As always the picture on the left will be the picture with no flash and the one on the right will be the one with flash …. All swatches are done on bare skin with no primer and in 1 pass.

The colors from left to right are:

Solstice With the Mostest (neon pink with a blue sheen – metallic) a ColourPop single pan shadow ($4.50 on their website). I just love this pink shade! It’s so fun to play with and it’s so super pigmented. It’s a great summer shade.

Grid Lock (bright teal with silver & teal glitter – metallic) a ColourPop single pan shadow ($4.50 on their website). This teal is super pretty on it’s own, as a lower lash pop of color, as center of a smokey halo eye, or winged out along the lash line as a pop of liner color.

Back Stage (cobalt blue – matte) a ColourPop single pan shadow ($4.50 on their website). This matte shade is so freaking pretty!!! I use it as an all over shadow, I use it as liner shade, I’ve even used it as an outer v shade.

Bare Minimum (berry violet – metallic) from the It’s My Pleasure Eyeshadow Palette by ColourPop ($12 on their website). This is such a unique shade. It has a hint of duo-chrome to it that just give this reddish tint to the eyeshadow.

Do or Dough (bright lavender with blue duo chrome flip – metallic) from the It’s My Pleasure Eyeshadow Palette by ColourPop ($12 on their website). I really love this shade as an all over mobile lid shade. It’s such a pretty duo-chrome. It’s so pretty, in fact, that I sometimes just dust a wash of this shade over my mobile lid and use nothing else, save some mascara.

Chick Lit (deep amethyst – metallic) from the It’s My Pleasure Eyeshadow Palette by ColourPop ($12 on their website). This shade is so majestic! It’s my most treasured purple shade in all my collection. I have even used this shade as a lipstick topper on occasions.

Egypt (royal green – metallic) from the Nubian 2 Palette by Juvia’s Place $28 on their website. This is such a pretty deep forest green with a slight gold lilt to it. I love creating a green smokey eye with this shadow most of all, but I have also used it as an lower lash liner and outer v shade.

Cleopatra (royal blue – metallic) from the Nubian 2 Palette by Juvia’s Place on their website. There is so much dimension to this shadow. Swatching this shadow doesn’t do it justice. There is just something so magical about this shade.

And finally Kongo (bright icy sky blue – metallic) from the Warrior III Palette by Juvia’s Place $20 on their website. This is such a bright blue! I just can’t stop staring when I’m wearing this one.

So there we have it dolls … this is what my dream mini colorful palette would look like. I know it’s sort of blue and purple heavy but those really are my favorite types of pop of color shadows. What shades would be in your 9 pan colorful palette?

I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in good health and spirits.

Remember … Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

THE DREAM PALETTE CHALLENGE DAY 3: Dream Neutral Palette

Published July 7, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey! How’s your day/night going? great I hope.

I know it’s been a week since I last posted for this challenge … but better late than never.

This is a challenge that was created by newlipstickclub1 , shimmershanny , and pan.o.ramics on Instagram.

Day 3: Dream Neutral Palette: Pick 9 neutral shades from any of your palettes to create your own mini neautrals palette

  • As always the picture on the left will be the picture with no flash and the one on the right will be the one with flash …. All swatches are done on bare skin with no primer and in 1 pass.

The shades for my dream mini neutrals palette would be:

Creme (a basic vanilla – matte) from the ELF The New Classics Palette $14 on their site. This shade is perfect for a brow bone highlight and as a matte inner corner highlight.

Riff (nude brown – matte) from the Urban Decay Born to Run Palette $49 at Ulta and Sephora. This is just the perfect nude transition shade. It’s just the right under tone of warmth without being too warm.

Maple (warm caramel brown – matte) from the Too Face Born This Way The Natural Nudes Palette $45 at Ulta and Sephora. This shade is similar to Riff but has a bit more yellow in the tone. It’s such a pretty shadow to just pop in the crease for some added dimension on those no makeup makeup days.

Sea Stars (medium yellow brown – matte) a ColourPop Single Pressed Powder Shadow $4.50 on their website. This is my go to shade when I just want an all over wash of color. I also love to use it to really smoke out the lower lash line when I do drop shadows.

Kano (true caramel – matte ) from the Warrior Palette by Juvia’s Place $20 on their website. I use Kano a ton… not just for eye shadow… I also use it to warm up the highest points of my face when I want a subtle bronzed look.

Kufuru (syrup brown – matte) from the Warrior II Palette by Juvia’s Place $20 on their website. I freaking love this shadow! It’s my favorite way to deepen up the outer v and to add depth to the lower lash line.

Over It (light warm coral – metallic) a ColourPop Single Pressed Powder Shadow (discontinued). This is the perfect coral shade to pair with a neutral palette. It’s just the right pigmentation and right shade of coral to pair well with a smokey neutral look and still work well with a barely their neutral look.

The 4th shade of the 1st row (champagne – metallic) of the Nubian Palette by Juvia’s Place $20 on their website. This adds such a stunning pop of light to any neutral look. It’s also a great inner corner highlight shade.

and finally Kenya (chocolate brown – matte) from the Nubian 2 Palette from Juvia’s Place $20 on their website. This is my go to shadow to create a smokey neutral look with and also to add depth to the very outer parts of the eye.

There you have it dolls. My perfect dream mini neutral palette. What shades would be in your 9 pan dream neutral palette?

I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits and good health.

Remember … Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

My Ultimate Dream Matte Palette (Revised)

Published June 29, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey!!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I’m very low on energy the past few days. Turns out my Hashimoto Syndrome is acting up and my Thyroid and Kidney functions are really low. The doctor changed my meds again to try and help my Thyroid and Kidneys start to improve but until the meds start to work I’ll be low on energy, more than when it’s just the Fibromyalgia giving me trouble, so I probably wont be able to do my makeup for a few more days or so. With that said I came across this really cool makeup challenge from fellow word presser Katie of KatieEmma Beauty , who by the way is an amazing beauty blogger! Her blog is just chalk full of amazing reads…. seriously you should go check her out. She found this challenge on Instagram and the original creators of this challenge are newlipstickclub1 , shimmershanny , and pan.o.ramics .

This is an 8 day challenge that centers on you creating your dream palette of the day …. the day assignments are:

Day 1: Dream Matte Palette
Day 2: Dream Shimmer Palette
Day 3: Dream Nude Palette
Day 4: Dream Color Palette
Day 5: Dream Face Palette (using eyeshadow only)
Day 6: Dream Monochromatic Palette
Day 7: Dream Eyeshadow Palette
Day 8: Dream Eyeshadow Palette (using non-eyeshadow)

So let’s start with Day 1: My Dream Matte Palette….

  • PLEASE NOTE: I was contacted by newlipstickclub1 and she actually gave me the rules for this challenge … so I have decided to rename this post and start the challenge over.

Anyone who knows me knows I love bigger palettes and I also love matte shadows, they are my all time favorite shadows so for me to have my ultimate dream matte palette it would have to be a huge palette.

I put together my dream palette on Friday but had a hard time whittling it down to a smaller size …. by Sunday night I was able to whittle it down to 69 shades…. but this is the smallest I am willing to go with my dream palette… ultimately I would probably add 1 more shade to round it out to an even number but really these 69 shades are my ultimate dream palette to own, I really could not have a dream palette without all these shades in the palette….

*REMEMBER, when I do swatches , I always do my swatches on clean bare skin with no primer and in 1 pass…. also I always take a picture of the swatches with and without flash so that you can get a true sense of the colors …. the pictures without flash will be on the left and the ones with flash will be on the right or the ones with no flash will be on top and the ones with flash will be on the bottom*

My first row of my dream mattes palette would be:

My third row of my dream mattes palette would be:

Amber (burnt orange from the ColourPop Brown Sugar palette), Soothe Matte (camel from the Tati Beauty Textured Neutrals Vol 1 palette), Maple (yellow based tannish brown from the Too Faced Born This Way The Natural Nudes Eye Shadow palette ), Riff (deep camel from the Urban Decay Born to Run palette), Wake Up Call (warm sand ColourPop single shadow), Bel Air (cool taupe ColourPop sungle shadow), Sea Stars (medium yellow brown ColourPop single shadow), Good Thing (warm chestnut brown ColourPop single shadow), Extra Curricular (mid toned orange tan ColourPop Double Entendre palette), Saucy (yellow based tan from the ELF Opposites Attack palette), and the 6th shade of the Juvia’s Place the Nudes palette (deep yellow camel).

My fourth row of my dream mattes palette would be:

the 5th shade of the Juvia’s Place the Chocolates palette (mustard yellow), Yodit (dark mustard brown from the Juvia’s Place Warrior II palette), Kana (rosy dove grey from the Juvia’s Place Warrior II palette), Sandy Bum (light tones natural brown from the ELF Retro Paradise palette), Mojave Mami (mid toned sand brown from the ELF Earth and Ocean palette), Feathered (rich chocolate brown ColourPop single shadow), Finesse (deep mahogany ColourPop single shadow), Choc (reddish brown from the ColourPop Brown Sugar palette), Teddy Bare (warm mid toned brown from the ColourPop Double Entendre palette), and the 4th shade of the Juvia’s Place the Chocolates palette (rich warm red brown).

My fifth row of my dream mattes palette would be:

the 6th shade of the Juvia’s Place the Corals palette (a reddish brown), Henna (deep cool toned taupe from the ColourPop Brown Sugar palette), the 1st shade of the Juvia’s Place the Chocolates palette (deep chocolate brown), the 3rd shade of the Juvia’s Place the Chocolates palette (grey toned deep cool brown), Cloud 9 (plummy brown ColourPop single shadow), Ms. Brightside (deep red plum from the ColourPop Whatever palette), Bad Guy (true burgundy from the ColourPop Whatever palette), Jamata (deep tan based orange from the Juvia’s Place Warriro II palette), Jezebel (maroon from the Juvia’s Place Nubain II palette), and Sleeper (eggplant ColourPop single shadow).

My sixth row of my dream mattes palette would be:

Kahina (deep maroon from the Juvia’s Place Warrior III palette), Candace (dusty rosy coral from the Juvia’s Place Warrior III palette), Fanti (vibrant purple from the Juvia’s Place Warrior III palette), Easy Going (blue based lilac from the ELF Opposites Attract palette), Gola (vibrant sky blue from the Juvia’s Place Warrior III palette), Oasis (dusty blue grey from the Elf Earth an Ocean palette), Royal (classic royal blue from the ELF Retro Paradise palette), Abyss (deep ocean blue from the ELF Earth and Ocean palette),and Wise (mid toned forest green from the ELF Opposites Attract palette).

There you have it dolls. This would be my ultimate dream all mattes palette. If I had to add 1 more color to the palette to give it an even number of shades I think I would add the shade Memory Matte (carbon black) from the Tati Beauty Textured Neutrals palette so that I had the deepest black available to me for days when the charcoal black aren’t deep enough.

This challenge was fun to do and I thank Katie of KatieEmma Beauty for posting it. I do love doing tags and challenges and you should check out all of her posts for this challenge. She did an amazing job at putting together her dream palettes.

I will not be posting Day 2 until Wednesday so that I can take tomorrow to gather and swatch all of the shade for the next challenge day.

I still have makeup in the mail coming to me the first week in July so I will not be able to haul anything new for the last few days of June. With that said I still have to do my July beauty buys so I may have more than usual haul posts in the month of July.

My eye has healed almost completely there is just the slightest bit of dry skin on the upper lid and just a rough patch on the lower eye lid …. I think by Thursday it should be all better … I’ve been combating the dry and rough skin of that eye with Hyaluronic Acid serum and a bit of my night oil.

Well that’s all for now dolls…. Remember to check out Katie Emma’s blog, she really does have a great one …. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits and health.

Remember …. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

XOXO, Nita

JKissa x ELF To the Rescue Palette Swatches and Review

Published June 25, 2020 by aspooniesmakeupbag

Hey doll hey! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope.

It dawned on me that I never officially showed off my JKissa palette.

Since I’ve had plenty of days to play around with the palette I figured I would also do a mini review of it as well.

The JKissa x ELF To the Rescue Palette $20 at Ulta. It came with a sticker sheet so you could decorate the palette. I love Pitbulls so I chose these stickers to decorate mine.
My palette came with the green shimmer, blue shimmer and purple shimmer shade shattered ( and the deep purple shade also came with just a tiny corner cracked as well) so I used Isopropyl Alcohol to wet those shades and press them back together. In doing so the green and purple shimmer shades names wiped off.

There are 12 matte and 6 shimmer shades in this palette and the total amount of product is .52 ounces making each shadow just under .3 ounces each.

This palette is 100% vegan and cruelty free and is the 2nd collaboration between JKissa and ELF (the first being a 7 pan eye shadow palette, blue liner, and a mascara) and in this second collaboration there is the 18 pan eye shadow palette (which I have in the picture above).

This palette is so fun to play with.

There is a ton of kick back in the pans with this soft pressed palette and more often than not there is also a ton of fallout on the face. I’ve learned t’s best to slowly build up the pigmentation of the shadows in this palette to avoid the fallout.

I have noticed when working with these shades that sometimes the can get a little patchy. Particularly the purple shades, but also the orange and yellow shades can sometimes lift in certain areas of the shade whilst buffing out. Also worth mentioning is that the orange shimmer shade is can be a little tough to build because it’s not as pigmented as the rest of the shimmer shades.

The shades are moderately pigmented, with some of the shades being more pigmented than others.

The shades do buff into each other fairly well but I have noticed they do not work well with other palettes, save for the shimmer shades which work fine with other palettes.

For this palette I would give it a solid A+. simply because of the few little issues with the palette.

Now let’s take a look at the swatches …. remember that as always all swatches are done on bare skin with no primer and in 1 pass.

The picture on the left is with no flash and the one on the right with with flash. The shades from left to right are: Casey, Millie, Yosemite, Peaky, Canolli, and Sadie. These shades are the lighter more brighter versions of the rainbow color scheme.

The picture on the left is with no flash and the one on the right with with flash. The shades from left to right are: Pepper, Zuma, Paloma, Tank, Thatcher, and Pretty Girl. These shades are the darker more deeper shades of the rainbow.

The picture on the left is with no flash and the one on the right with with flash. The shades from left to right are: Strawberry, Tsuki, Firefly, Reagan, Bailey, and Confetti. These are the shimmery slightly metallic shades of the rainbow.

a 6 piece brush set called Furever Eyeshadow Brush Set (which I also purchased but is currently dirty) that retails for for $25 and is sold at Ulta (is sold out on the ELF website) which includes the: J1 (packer brush), J2 (multi tasker), J3 (fluffy blender brush), J4 (small bullet brush), J5 (angled liner brush), and J6 (flat definer brush).

The brush set has a rainbow handle with a purple ferrule. The synthetic bristles are super soft but also firm enough to preform their jobs well.

The brushes do not shed and they are some of the best quality of brushes ELF has put out to date.

My only wish would be that they would have come out with a face brush set too, but since JKissa doesn’t wear foundation I kind of understand why a set wasn’t created.

I give this brush set a solid A+++!!!! This again is the best brush set to date, in my opinion, that ELF has come out with.

and a eye shadow topper duo called Tsuki To My Heart that retails for $12 (at Ulta) for .3 ounces of total product and features the shades I’m Pupset (a bright green) and What a Pitty Smile (opalescent/clear). This was the only product I chose not to purchase simply because I don’t use eye shadow toppers much because they emphasize the texture of my lids.

Well that’s all for now dolls. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and that you are in good spirits and health.

Remember dolls …. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

XOXO, Nita

Today we’re diving into the 2nd 1/2 of my Eyeshadow Palettes collection … I wil not be blogging about what the palettes are billed as because I have a heap of palettes to get through and not all of my palettes are available still so I have no way of knowing what they were marketed as. Any way without further ado let’s do this…

BH Cosmetics Love in London Palette $16 on their website.

This is the first palette I’ve tried from BH Cosmetics and I have to say the quality is exquisite! The mattes and metallics are both buttery and highly pigments.

The colors are: Liar Liar, Ringer, 20 Something, Bel Air, Sea Stars, Lay Low, Top Notch, Earthshine, Manifest It, Latch Key, Pretty Cruel, and Sleeper.

It’s a really nice palette but I don’t reach for it much these days.

Today we’re diving into my Eyeshadow Palettes collection … I wil not be blogging about what the palettes are billed as because I have a heap of palettes to get through and not all of my palettes are available still so I have no way of knowing what they were marketed as. Any way without further ado let’s do this…

Revolution Beauty Reloaded Palette Basic Mattes $8 for 15 @ .04 ounces of product on their website.

This one is billed as truly compelling mixture of 15 smooth and rich shades, for matte-lovers everywhere! Featuring a wide spectrum of fundamental nudes, creams, beiges, browns and deep plums.

I’ve already reviewed this palette in my REVOLUTION (MAKEUP REVOLUTION) FULL FACE REVIEW . What it boils down to is this is an amazing palette and a staple in my collection.

ColourPop x Karruche Collab (limited edition and no longer available was $12 for .36 ounces of product) The Brown Sugar palette.

This is a warm tones neutral palette with tons of versatility. Compact for on the go and I find myself reaching for it as a back up to other palettes all the time.

ColourPop Going Coconuts Palette $12 for .36 ounces of product on their site (currently out of stock).

This is a dustier version of the Brown Sugar palette … still in the vein of warm neutrals. I love this palette so much. It’s a great everyday, work and school appropriate palette.

ColourPop Double Entendre Palette $18 on their website.

This palette has it all … warn and cool nudes …. mattes and metallics.

Such a nicely put together palette.

ColourPop What Ever Palette $18 on their website.

Such a fun little palette that has it all.. from nudes to roses, to burgundy, from mattes, to glitters, to metallics and pressed pigments.

Catrice Cosmetics Basic Bae Palette $14 for .44 ounces of product at Ulta

This one is a basic neutral lovers palette with both matte and metallic shadows. This was my favorite part of my Catrice review.

Coastal Scents Revealed Rouge $20 on their website.

This one has a red color story that is just simply divine.

It’s the only Revealed palette I kept from my Coastal Scents review week. I decluttered the rest of the palettes. This one is super unique and I have loved every look I’ve come up with.

Urban Decay Born To Run Eyeshadow Palette $49 for .42 ounces of product at Ulta and Sephora.

This is 1 of only 2 Urban Decay palettes that survived my last declutter. I got rid of the rest of them. I absolutely love this palette! This is a great one for travel because it has all the nudes and still a pops of color. My favorite shade (although just a simple boring nude and not a pop of color)is Weekender. I so want them to release this shade in a single!! I’ve hit pan on it and this shade is a staple in my repertoire.

KVD Shae + Light Eye Contour Palette *I believe this one has been discontinued as I can not find a permalink to link back to a sale site*

This palette is broken into small quads… neutral,cool, and warm.

I love this palette. I love that it’s all mattes, I love that it’s got so much versatility within the quads. It’s a basic neutral palette.

Too Faced Born This Way The Natural Nudes Eye Shadow Palette $45 at Ulta and Sephora.

Hands down my best and favorite neutrals palette and also my favorite of the Too Faced palettes I own.

The first week I got this palette I couldn’t put it down! I have loved every look I’ve come up with using this little baby.

The shades flatter every skin tone. The mattes are finely milled the metallics have 2 different finishes .. there are some drier and some so buttery that they glide on effortlessly.

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette $49 for .56 ounces of product at Ulta.

I can’t believe this palette still have that amazing chocolate scent to it.

The shadows are smooth and pigmented and blend like a dream.

Too Faced Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar *Discontinued*

This is the cool neutrals answer to the Chocolate Bar family (with that warm pop of the peanut butter shade).

This one still has the delicious scent of chocolate too. I have traveled many times with this one.

Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons *discontinued but can be found on Amazon*

This is such a fun palette with those pops of pink and blue and purple in them and has a mix of warm and cook neutrals.

Too Faced Chocolate Gold Palette $49 for .54 ounces of product at Ulta.

This one is basically an all metallic palette with 4 staple mattes.

This is my favorite pop of color palette that I currently own.

ColourPop She’s Got Solstice Palette $14 for .3 ounces of product at Ulta.

This is a great little coral based palette and that pop of moss green is amazing!

ColourPop Making Mauves Palette $14 on their website.

A great alternative to the standard nude neutral palettes on the market. This is a great one for weddings and special occasions and just for a spin on a neutral eye look.

ColourPop Nude Mood Palette $14 on their website.

I love pairing this one with my Brown Sugar palette a lot.

ColourPop Blush Crush Palette $14 on their website.

This is another palette that’s perfect for a wedding or special event. Soft muted pinks and mauves so expertly done.

ColourPop It’s My Pleasure Palette $12 on their website

I purchased this one because a reader requested a purple look. I fell in love because the purples are so rich and expertly done. It can be hard to get purple eyeshadows to preform well because that pigment is hard to create. ColourPop hit it out of the park with this palette and that 1 pop of baby pink just made this palette everything.

ColourPop Lilac You A Lot $12 on their website

I purchased this one also because a reader requested a purple look and I wanted to have plenty of purple options to choose from. I love this pastel feel of the palette so much and it pairs well with the It’s my Pleasure palette.

ColourPop Mulan Palette $22 on their website

I could not wait to get my hands on this little baby!! I came up with 5 separate looks for this palette showing the versatility of it.

This is a great one for glam and drama.

 9 pan palette I created from Makeup Geek for 57.99 total which includes the z palette.

The shades in this palette are : Shimma Shima, a pale peachy flesh tone with a silver reflect. So Pale, a light vanilla matte. Rapunzel, a pale peach with gold reflect. Sand Dollar, a pale grey matte, Peach Smoothie, a true peach matte. Pumpkin’, a coral-orange hybrid matte. I’m Peachless, a pale peach with pink reflect. Tuscan Sun, a dusty coral pink matte. And finally Dark Roast, a dark true brown matte.

Urban Decay Ultimate Basics Palette *Discontinued*

This palette is the 2nd of 2 palettes I kept from Urban Decay in my last declutter. I love that it’s an all matte, basic eyeshadow palette. I tend to pull shades from this palette to accompany other palettes.

It’s a great companion palette to own.

Well dolls. That’s it for this volume. Hope you have a nice rest of your day/night.

Remember … Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.

XOXO
