Now, this particular palette comes with four shades. From left to right the colors are: Kashmir, Satin Sheets, PS Pink, and Angelic. There are two mattes and two shimmers. I love every single shade BUT the PS Pink. As you can see in the swatch picture, PS Pink is barely visible. That was also swatching it in the same spot four times. But, the other three were completely amazing. The shimmers in this palette are beyond any shimmer I have personally ever worked with. They are silky and easy to blend.The palette does come with a cheap bamboo applicator but most of you have your own brushes anyway!
The thing I really like about this palette is that the box is so cheaply made. That may sound weird but, I like it because it is beyond easy to take out the shadows to put in a Z palette. There is no messy de-potting ect. Also, this brand is Eco Friendly and CRUELTY FREE!! They are also organic and vegan as well and all of the make up is parabens, FD&C colors and petrochemicals free. With a lot of make up artists going cruelty free it is hard to find good quality makeup that doesn't test on animals. I found one for you ladies!!
If these shades dont do it for you there are two other palettes available at Ulta from this company. They have the "Rock the Smokey Eye" palette which is grey, black, white and purple and the "Party Girl" palette which is purple, pink, green, and blue. If you go on there website the palettes are actually $29.99 so it is probably best to get them through ULTA.

I found this beautiful palette while shopping at my new Ulta store! It's a value of $52.00 BUT only cost $12.00! There are ten shadows in this palette with a net weight of 13 grams/0.45 oz. The palette case is a hard cardboard with a magnetic latch. It reminds me a lot of the Anastasia Beverly Hills palettes when it comes to the packaging. Its a very thin palette so, traveling with it would be extremely easy. One con is that it doesn't come with a mirror. It does however, come with instructions (where the mirror should be) that explain three different looks you can do with this palette!
Starting from the left, the colors are: In The Buff, Trendsetter, Molten, Silk, Glittering Sands, Sapphire, Sandstone, Eggplant, and Galaxy. As you can see, the swatches for this palette are AMAZING! They are so pigmented. They are silky and so blendable. The palette itself is grouped up to make following the instructions for the looks very easy. The smaller shadows are for the lid and crease and the bigger shadows are for the brow highlight. The shadows are not powdery and glide right on. I have to say I was shocked! It does come with a pretty cheap applicator, so I would recommend using your own brushes. I know high-end palettes that are less pigmented and blendable than this palette.
In conclusion, I am in complete love with this palette and beyond excited to share it with you all! You can't beat the price and quality of this palette. The colors are so smokey and beautiful. This is a must have in your collection! If you have this palette, comment and let me know your thoughts!
Here is a video on everything I have been loving for the month of September!
Make Up brushes are something you can NEVER have enough of. It is something you will always buy and re-buy. The fad at the moment is the Sigma Brushes, which are NOT cheap by any means. That can make purchases brushes a slow and painful process. So, I went on a hunt for good quality brushes that are affordable and it was a complete success!
I went on E-bay. That can be a risky thing to do, but I did a lot of research and stayed in the U.S. for my purchase. You can get things from Hong Kong or China for extremely cheap with free shipping, but it can take weeks to get to you. I am NOT that patient.
I found a seller with the name digital-shop1. They sell the brushes in the picture to your left. There are ten brushes to a set. As far as I know they come in black, pink, and white. I have the pink and white sets. They are Kabuki style brushes and come with five eye brushes and five face brushes. The brush holder is wooden and the brush tube is aluminum. The hair in the brush is nylon. On the site they even have instructions on how to use each brush and what they are for and how to clean them!
The BEST and absolutely most EXCITING thing about these brushes is that they are only $13.90 for the whole set WITH free shipping!! So, of course I bought them. They are the softest brushes I have ever owned! They are SO easy to clean and the hairs NEVER fall out! I can put my foundation on flawlessly and I always reach for the eye brushes to do my makeup. I would recommend everyone to have at least one set of these in your collection! They do not have a brand name but they are amazing! A true MUST SEE product for women on a budget!
I found an AMAZING site to get things for a fraction of the cost! Its a live auction website/ App that has a digital auction house where you bid on whatever you want. They literally sell everything but, I was more interested in the accessories and make up of course! You can also sell things. I downloaded the App on my phone and I keep constantly checking it! Its like going to a high end thrift store! You have to check it out! Ill leave the link down below!

I am completely in LOVE with the Freeman facial masks! Who doesn't love a good facial mask at the end of a long hard day?! I went to Ulta yesterday to do some shopping for my grandmother and picked up one for her and one for me. I got her the new one, the Facial Brightening Golden Grain mask. I got myself the Anti-Stress Dead Sea Minerals mask. So, I wanted to do a little review on that mask.
The mask has made quite a name for itself since being released. It has 4.8 out of 5 starts on Ulta.com, a 4.4 out of 5 rating on Makeup Alley and has an award from TotalBeauty.com. The masks are retailed at $3.99 for 6 oz. This is a clay mask so it works AMAZINGLY for people with oily skin, which I have! The clay works really well at sucking out the oil that gets deep in my pores. Most masks like this say to use once every two weeks ect. but, this mask says you can use it twice a week or as much as you want! It is also a plus that the mask is a solid turquoise color! Its a very thick mask but is more than easy to apply. It slides on very smoothly and wipes off your hands extremely fast. The smell of this mask is what sold me. COMPLETELY SOLD ME! It has such a nice, smooth, almost aquatic scent that even my husband loved! Yes, I SO made him to a facial with me because there is NO bigger critic on beauty products than a man! He completely loved the product. The mask was so easy to clean off which is nice with the clay masks. They tend to be very annoying to remove and get out of your hairline. The mask left my face feeling SO clean and smooth!
So, my final word on this product is AWESOME! I am definitely going to pick up every single one of these bad boys!
*NOTE*- These product are NOT paraben free, so anyone who tries to avoid those products, these will not be the masks for you!
