Stila Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Eye & Cheek Palette X2

Stila does not get enough love. Their packaging is always so beautifully luxurious and while their regular prices are mid range, when on sale, can fall directly into drugstore territory. I am neither light/medium nor tan/deep but these colors spoke to me. The base color in the light/medium palette is a perfect match for my … Continue reading Stila Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Eye & Cheek Palette X2

Putting things neatly in drawers just ends with me never touching it again and that makes me sad. Currently I'm trying to amass the Sephora $1 ABH empty 4 pan palettes and moving … Continue reading Organizing

Lorac Pro Palette & A Mini

Since Lorac is restocking their Mega Pro Palettes I thought I'd swatch these guys that have been in my collection since 2015!! The kickup in these shadows is pretty high however using a flat shader brush and tapping the pan instead of swiping will help alleviate that. Brush swatches over Urban Decay Primer Potion. Follow … Continue reading Lorac Pro Palette & A Mini
