One of my goals this year with my blog is to focus more on hair and makeup reviews. When I was in 8th grade and blogs weren’t even on the map I would spend hours scouring the internet for makeup blogs. At the awkward age of 13 I decided I’d blog one day. So mature of me…
After blogging for over a year I noticed that I really didn’t focus on reviewing makeup products at all. It wasn’t because I haven’t been buying any – my Sephora VIB card and Glambox would rat me out. I just wasn’t sure if you all would be that interested! This year I hope that I’m able to branch into that a little bit- if you all don’t mind!
First up: eyeshadow palettes. I have such a love/hate relationship with them. The packaging is pretty, so I buy. Then I never open the thing up for another three years and decide it needs to be tossed for bacteria’s sake.
I had to kill about 30 minutes last week, so I did the standard and ran to Sephora. Too Faced has been a winner recently since I can’t get enough of the Candlelight Glow. I normally find their eyeshadow palettes to be a bit overrated, but all was forgiven when I saw this packaging.
After using this palette for a week, I can safely say I will actually use it all up. [The thing looks so haggard now. I’ve gone overboard with every color.] And the little instructional makes it really easy because my biggest grievance with palettes is, “Um…what tha heck do I do with all of these?!”
If you aren’t an eyeshadow girl [don’t worry, I normally am not] use the shadows on the left as a highlight for your cheeks! It creates a really stunning and matte glow. Use a damp eyeliner brush and all of these colors work as eyeliners that melt into your lids. Tiger’s Eye is my favorite!
