Here it is!!! This palette is part of the new Estée Lauder “Edit” Collection. The collection includes a bunch of other products but I was most excited to get my hands on this piece. This Eyeshadow Palette was done in collaboration with the face of Estée Lauder, Kendall Jenner. It retails at Sephora for $48. That is NOT CHEAP!

I think there are a ton of different looks you could create and rock with this palette which makes the price a little easier to swallow. I was most interested in the silver and gold “Glow in the Dark” shades. They work under black light to glow! How unique and crazy is that?! They are gorgeous swatched on my hand and super pigmented.

As for the other colors, they are equally as pigmented and may become my go to for Spring 2016.

Overall a few of the shadows are pretty unique to anything else I own in my collection. The lavender shade I know I don’t have anything similar to and the gorgeous peach shade is on point! I can’t wait to do more looks with the Black light shades. Glitter is everywhere this season so thumbs up!

Is this palette worth $48? IT DEPENDS… I can certainly tell you the glitter shades are smooth and apply like a dream to my lids with little to no fallout. For me, the palette was worth it but I think there’s probably dupes for most of the colors out there. The nice thing about the colors is that most of them can be worn during the day lightly and then intensified for a glam night look.

I hope y’all enjoyed this! I know I had tons of fun putting this post together and swatching these colors.

It’s a Beauty HAUL!!

While browsing every girls favorite beauty stops I start to feel a sudden urge. The product packed shelves are beckoning me to buy. You want this…you need this. I hear the ever so faint tone of the checkout scanner and wait impatiently for the total. I am here again, the place that loves to take my money.

Hello to everyone! Sorry I have been out for a bit. I have been extremely busy but I am back to share a haul. I got a few things from Sephora and Ulta that I would love to share with y’all!

Spring Palette That Won’t Break the Bank?

IMG_9530.jpeg

My eyeshadow palette obsession is real! Unfortunately so is the high price that normally comes with some of my favorite ones. I always look for palettes that can provide many different looks from full on glam to every day light glam but that also offer something different that I haven’t seen before. Unfortunately there are few products for me at the drugstore that are able to deliver rich, creamy shadows that go on pigmented. I went to Ulta one afternoon looking for new mascara because mine was all out and noticed the sale being put on. Ulta happened to be doing a promotion on Makeup Revolution products where you buy one and get the second for 50% off. There was a similar sale on some NYX products and many others. For awhile now I have heard whispers of Makeup Revolution but never could bring myself to try anything. Many of the drugstore palettes I have tried in the past have proven to be cheap quality and dull. For this reason it took me awhile to break down and finally purchase The Makeup Revolution New-Trals vs. Neutrals palette that I have been eyeing for quite some time.  I just didn’t have much confidence in the product because of past experiences. Boy was I wrong!!

These shadows more than impressed me. There are several colors in here that are pretty unique in my opinion. I have been seeing these colors EVERYWHERE recently for the Spring 2016 season so I have been on the hunt for something that had the pinky/neutral color scheme. Most of these colors blend out perfectly and were extremely buttery when I swatched on my arm.

This is the first row from top to bottom – Bias, Neutral, Personal, Vogue, Trend, New Trial, Tone, and Custom.

This is the second row from top to bottom – Cool, Style, Partial, Mode, Adapt, Buff, Suit and Strong.

Overall Review:

  • Great for everyday use or night time glam
  • Creamy and Buttery when swatched on arm
  • Easy to Use
  • Great Value – $10.00 regularly at Ulta
  • Blends Easily
  • The only shadows I found lacking in pigmentation would be Neutral and Adapt
