EOTD Using theBalm's Nude 'Tude Palette

You had to know it wouldn't be long before I mentioned this palette again. It's just too good! To see a review click here.

The shadows are a dream to work with! I think you can expect a tutorial soon...

FOTD With Glasses

I have been dying to wear blue eyeshadow in a work appropriate way. You always have to pump up your eyes when you wear glasses, so I figured why not go a little wild with blue? This look used colors from Wet N' Wild's Blue Had Me at Hello palette and I SWEAR I have a review and swatchfest coming up on this soon. I just want to come up with looks using both sides of the palette like I did for the Comfort Zone palette.

Does anyone else have reservations about wearing blue? How do you wear it?

Fun Look Friday: Summer Gold and Aqua

Happy Friday, everyone! In order to drag my sorry butt through the last part of the week, I need some incentive. What is a better incentive than creating a Friday post that I can't wait to share and can't wait to follow? Nothing, I tell ya. Nothing.

It works like this, you see: I will post a look each Friday. This look might range anywhere from wearable to "dear baby Zeus, is that thing real!?" What's more is that I encourage you to post response looks! Same rules apply to you; anything goes!

This week is slightly more wearable than last week’s. I used the e.l.f. Beauty Book: The Brights Edition and the Sephora Jumbo Liner 12HR Wear Waterproof in turquoise.

Enjoy! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Review and swatchfest: Wet N’ Wild Comfort Zone Palette

I don’t know how I have gone without this palette for so long. For 8 quality shadows that look good when worn alone or mixed and matched, I think this palette is a steal at $4.99 in drugstores (I have only seen them in Walgreens and Walmart). Granted, there are some things I would change if I could (more on that later) but, overall, I would highly recommend this palette as a go-to for everyday looks as well as dramatic smoky looks. To me, this palette almost has it all.

Review and Swatchfest: Tarte Lock & Roll 12-Hour Eyeshadow in Burnt Bronze, Rose Gold, and Moss

One of the things I have been most excited about purchasing this summer are the Tarte Lock & Roll 12-Hour Eyeshadows. They promise waterproof, creaseless wear for 12 hours and boy do they deliver! I can't wait any longer. Roll that beautiful beauty footage.

Aaaaand now that that's out of my system...

I have been drooling over these shadows since I saw them at Sephora at the beginning of the summer. But, with the size of my makeup stash being what it is, I couldn't justify dropping $17.00 on one eyeshadow (even if there are two products in one!). All of that changed when their 20% off red, white, and beautiful sale began (hurry, it ends July 11th!). $13.60 isn't such a bad I bought them and certainly haven't regretted it. Let me tell you why.

These shadows are a dream. They really are crease proof and, as far as sweating off in the summer heat goes, waterproof. The cream shadows are super smooth despite being really shimmery and, when blended out, retain their pigmentation.What came as a shock to me is the pigmentation of the powder! I have had eyeshadows with roller ball applicators before and they leave much to be desired with the amount of product they lay down. Again, these shadows do not disappoint. The powder swatches were the result of two swipes. Two swipes! You can certainly put the powder over the matching shadow for a lovely look, but I would even wear them alone. Another plus with these products is the versatility. Because each unit has two separate products, you can mix and match both within the collection or with your own primers and shadows! You certainly get your bang for your buck.

Now for the wear test:
Before - Inner half: rose gold Outer V: burnt bronze

Without any kind of primer, I put the Rose Gold cream shadow all over the inner half of my lid and the burnt bronze all over the outer v then blended the two together. I then repeated that step with the matching powders. On the waterline is Cargo Swimmables in the bright blue color (a review on those beauties coming soon).

12 hours later!
Firs off, pleeease excuse the poor lighting. I just got home from work and had to make it out from a run before dark so moving my light around wasn't in the cards. Even without the lighting though, you can see that this eyeshadow has not budged! Great success.

Would I recommend this product? You bet your sweet mama's cornbread I would. 10/10 for performance and it stuck the landing.
