Let me start this post by mentioning that I am a total packaging dork. The cuter the better. That doesn’t mean I don’t look into things and do research. These little beauties here are my recent favorites. Including the brushes.
The brushes are Sonia Kashuk, Morphe, and Real Techniques. I’m all about affordable brushes and these brands definitely deliver for the price point. The jar is just a repurpose of a spaghetti sauce jar! (lol) I’m all for repurposing.
Now the star of the show are these palettes my husband got me for Valentine’s day. I know I am one lucky girl. The Kat Von D ‘Shade and Light’ palette has been sitting in my Sephora cart for forever!! It is “an eye contouring palette featuring three color quads in neutral, cool, and warm shades.”-Sephora website. I am absolutely obsessed. I have warm undertones and hazel-ish eyes and this works with me. They have some fall out but they are so buttery and blend soooo well!! Sadly I didn’t think to open the palette, SORRY!!
Then theres Tarte’s ‘Tartelette in Bloom Clay’ shadow palette.” An eye shadow palette with 12 brand-new shades in a mix of matte and luster finishes.” It has 9 mattes and 3 shimmer shadows or like the Sephora website says ‘3 luster’ shadows. Another favorite because of how easy they blend and how buttery they feel. They kind of have a similar scent like the Too Faced chocolate palettes or maybe its just the ‘clay’? Anyone know?
Last but not least is the Too Faced ‘Chocolate Bon Bon’ palette. “An eye palette from the Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Collection with 16 heart-shaped, cocoa powder-enriched eye shades in brights and neutrals.” First off this line calls to me in ways I can’t explain! Everything they release is adorable, amazing quality, and worth every penny. Unlike the other two palettes this one has a lot more pops of color. Sadly I haven’t created any ‘colorful’ looks but it seems like such a great option for spring.
Here are my recent Go to makeup selections. I’ve opted for a softer lip, some serious glow (since my foundation does dry to a matte), and of course some simple looks achieved with both these palettes.
Thanks for reading. I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed photographing and typing up!
