kat von d 2

Purchased by me. I am pretty obsessed with Kat Von D’s Sephora line. Around the holidays, I decided not to pass up on this Spellbinding Eyeshadow Book palette, because I knew I would regret it later. I bought it and thought about giving it to my husband to give to me for Christmas…but I just …

dior 2

Disclaimer: Purchased by me. I buy a lot of beauty products. We know that, right? But the truth is, I hardly EVER splurge on cosmetics made by the highest of high-end brands, like Dior or Chanel.

Pixi Perfection Palette in Lit-Up Lovely

perfection palette 8

Disclaimer: Press sample. See bottom for more. I’m such a huge fan of multi-use palettes, because sometimes I just enjoy having someone else (aka, a brand) tell me, “these shades are all coordinated, use them and you can’t go wrong.” Each time I used the Pixi Beauty Lit-Up Lovely Perfection Palette, I created soft looks and …

Ofra Pro Palette

ofra cream liner palette 2

I brought more makeup with me on my trip to Florida last month than I needed. I should have known better, especially since I was going to The Makeup Show Orlando! Sure enough, among the many things that came home with me (self control is not defined in my world, apparently) was the beautiful, magnetic Ofra Pro …

NYX Bohemian Chic Palette

bohemian chic 2

What I love about the NYX Cosmetics Bohemian Chic palette, a nude matte collection, is that it’s not just basic neutrals. Bohemian Chic has 24 soft matte eye shadows that vary is subtle earth tones, but that doesn’t mean variations of brown and black – there are smoky greens, blues and a wine color, too, so …

NYX Be Free Palette

be free 2

It’s great when I am able to get the latest Urban Decay, Tarte or Smashbox palette. I crush hard on their shadows and color combinations. But sometimes, spending between $35 and $60 isn’t feasible. The last couple months I’ve been experimenting with looks using the NYX Be Free palette, which has 25 eye shadows, seven lip glosses …
