Lorac Pro Palette Review & Swatches

Lorac Pro Palette 1

Oh well hello Lorac Pro Palette wanna be my new best friend forever? The new Lorac Pro Palette ($42) is newly launched for Fall 2012 and includes sixteen fabulous shades of eyeshadow as well as a Mini Behind the Scenes Eye Shadow Primer.

I feel like it’s Christmas! What a surprise for Fall to get such a wide range of eyeshadows in a single compact.

Of course, I instantly had a makeup boner (am I allowed to say that on here?) when I saw it pop up on Sephora. Lorac has a fairly great track record and releases high quality palettes again and again and again. I also feel like they offer enough variety in these palettes that they are worth picking up without worrying about dupes in past palettes you own or have tried from the brand in the past.

Let’s take a look!

My Beauty Diary Sheet Mask Set Giveaway

giveaway

‘ello ‘ello!

Happy Almost Weekend.

Any fancy plans for your weekend? I just need some R&R so it’s going to probably be pretty low key for me. I’m having a game night on Saturday, picked up Ticket to Ride after Wil Wheaton’s ravings. It’s actually highly unusual for me to do a game night in the Summer, I typically reserve them for Fall but a good deal of my friends expressed the same interested in Ticket to Ride so we decided why wait to play it?

As for the rest of the weekend a little Batman is in order, a little shopping and dinner with friends and heck, maybe, if it rains a little vegging in front of the telly to catch up on Teen Wolf and Awkward.

I just mailed out several of the giveaway prizes so winner’s be on the look out! Your goodies are on the way. I also need to select a winner for the contest I had while I was away.

And finally…

A new giveaway for today.

Yes?

Skin Food Sugar Cookie Blush Review & Swatches

Skin Food Sugar Cookie Blush 1

At a glance and a swatch Skin Food Sugar Cookie Blush is incredibly disappointing. Perhaps for a super fair skin tone but for me? No go.

I purchased it in Winter Cherry, proceeded to swatch it and was crushed that it barely showed up on my skin. I liked the color and was kinda hopeful it would prove a more pink version of Tarte Glisten but that swatch really slayed me.

Needless to say I tossed it on the side for a few days and almost didn’t bother trying it out.

Sure glad I finally reached for it!

It’s lovely!

Dr. Jart Black Label Detox Pore Penetrator Review

Dr. Jart Black Label Detox Pore Penetrator Review

Dr. Jart Black Label Detox Pore Penetrator might seem familiar to you. That’s because I reviewed Dr. Jart All Out Black Head Remover a year or two ago.

Kinda the same concept here.

I’m willing to try ANYTHING to get the stubborn blackheads to stop vacationing on the tip of my nose. Nothing works. Nose strips, gels, treatments…short of burning them off or removing my nose, I think they are here to stay.

Let’s see if the Dr. Jart Black Label Detox Pore Penetrator did the trick!

Essence Voluminizing Lash Powder Review

Essence Voluminizing Lash Powder 8

Essence Voluminizing Lash Powder ($1.99) has proven completely out of my reach. I have an Ulta located about, mmmm, an hour away from me? If you’re from New York you probably know the one I mean. The only way I get there is when I head to Woodbury because it’s just too much of a bother just to go there to hit up Ulta.

Ulta carries Essence but anytime I go there I never find cool products like the Voluminizing Lash Powder.

One of the best parts about blogging beauty is you meet and become friends with so many fantastic people. This review wouldn’t be possible without my fellow geeky gamer Cult of Taupe. She gifted me with this recently, completely unexpectedly.

Thanks Crystal

Let’s take a peek at this!

I’m quite eager to get to the review.
