Ahhh the great debate. Should you indulge in the E.L.F. Endless Eyes Pro Mini Eyeshadow Palette or shouldn’t you? 32 Eyeshadows, sponge applicator, mirror, nice slim compact, $5 buck price tag….sounds dreamy right? Where could you possibly go wrong indulging since the price isn’t too bad….
This year E.L.F. has two of these limited edition palettes available for the Holidays. The one I’ll be reviewing here today is the mini version which includes 32 shadows for $5 bucks and there’s another, which I didn’t purchase, that includes 100 eyeshadows for $10 bucks.
First off, these are obviously way popular because they are sold out however E.L.F. is allowing orders for when they do come back in stock. Secondly, I purchased mine on a sheer whim because I know alot of people wanted to hear about it, see photos, etc…prior to purchasing it for themselves. And thirdly, I am a bit of a makeup snob and palettes like this don’t always garner my love and attention. Slapping 100′s of eyeshadow into a palette can prove great particularly from brands like Urban Decay, hey bring that on, but present me with one from E.L.F. and I’m naturally a little wary about the quality.
Let’s have a look and see if this bad boy lives up to it’s “professional status” as dubbed by E.L.F.
Mmmmm blast from my Stila Summer past here. I was sorting through my “to be reviewed” pile a few days ago, that would be a large pile of products that get photographed and tossed into a bin for safe keeping. This pile tends to get out of control sometimes so you’ll find me diving in head first and proceeding to rummage around to see what looks good for reviewing quite often.
Anyway, during my daily plunder through the bin I realized, wow, I didn’t review the Stila One Step Primer Color that was released with Stila’s Summer Collection this year.
Anyone haul it?
We had discussed which you would buy at the time since Summer was all about various cream blushes and this happened to be one that did everything plus walked your dog too! Stila dubs it a primer, eyeshadow, highlighter, lip color, cheek color, and bronzer. Ummm…dare I say NOT!
I had heck of a great success with Lush It Started With a Kiss. How about you guys? Loving it? Leaving it? Do share. I like it, alot. A bit too much in fact. It makes minimal makeup a snap! I wore it all weekend because I was all kinds of lazy about doing my makeup so I dabbed some on my cheeks and lips and went to town and got a ton of comments about how fresh faced I looked, why don’t I look fresh faced with my 10 layers of makeup that I normally wear?! Ha!
No but seriously it’s such minimal makeup at its best especially since I’ve taken to multitasking it as a cheek stain! Loves!
How about Lush Double Choc Lip Tint?
Chance of a great outcome since It Started With a Kiss is such a fond fav.
Let’s have a lookiee!
After playing around with the Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick Set Volume 1 I decided that I would never make proper use out of it so I took a big breath and I returned it. I’m quite proud of myself for doing this since I adored the packaging and design of this gift set but I knew in my heart I’d have never used some of the lipstick shades included in the set.
So what did I do?
I grabbed full sizes of Cathedral and Lolita, the two shades in the set that did work for me!
Visee is a branch off brand from Kose and is sold or used to be sold exclusively in Japan. Since my earlier ventures into Visee, its become available in other parts of Asia but not within the US.
It’s been a while since I purchased any Visee Eye Palettes. The joy of a great Visee Palette was definitely not as appealing as it once was considering the brand started becoming a tad repetitive, color wise, for me.
I did feel like the Visee Royal Party Glam Nude Eye Palettes deserved a purchase particularly Blond Fur which felt different and unique enough to buy and not a constant rehash of the same colors the brand favors as of late.
Let’s have a look!
