Review: Sephora Limited Edition Palette

Hi loves! This is my last day of blogging until April! 😦 I have a review of one of my favorite palettes, the Sephora Limited Edition Palette! Here are some pics when I first got it:

Image

Here is the palette now:

Image

Image

It folds up into this block, and it has a lock on the top.

Image

Here are swatches of the eye shadows in the neutral color section. (the first 2 rows).

Image

Image

The rest of the neutrals:

Image

Image

All of the other shadows:

ImageImage

There are 12 cream eyeliners in the palette:

ImageImage

And there are 5 top-coat eye shadows, and 3 eye and cheek luminizers:

ImageImage

The other side is lip colors and glosses, and 5 3-in-ones, as well as 3 blushes: (3-in-ones are products you can use on the cheek, the eyes, and the lips).

Review:

The eye shadows are AMAZING! As you can see in the swatches, they are smooth and pigmented, (I did not treat the photos), and are great n all 3 textures. I use them ALL the time! Everything about them are awesome, so there’s not much more to say! 😀

The lip colors are also some of my top faves. All of the Sephora products have unique colors, and textures, so the lip colors are so fun to play around with. The are amazingly smooth, very pigmented, and I know I ill use them all up quickly! 😀

The blushes are very nice, although, I think they could have switched out one of the pinks for a peach, or a coral, or even a bronzer. All 3 of them are pigmented, smooth, easy to blend, the only annoying thing is that they are all in the pink family. One of them is more rose, but still. 🙂

Eye products: 5/5

Lip products: 5/5

Cheek products: 4/5

So this palette is definitely one that I will keep using and using. I got this palette last year, and still use it frequently. I went to the online Sephora store, and unfortunately, I couldn’t find this palette, so I guess it was limited edition after all! 🙂

I hope you liked this, I will post a look soon!

LOTD: Julianne Hough Inspired

Hey loves! 😀 One more day, and I will be gone. wah 😦  But hey 🙂 Here is a natural look for all seasons, inspired by the gorgeous Julianne Hough! (I was planning on making a pictorial, but forgot halfway through the look. 😛 But next time I do a celebrity inspired look, I will do a tutorial)!

Image

My interpretation:

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

ImageImageImageImageImageImage

As you can see, the lighting is a little dull, so you can’t see the effect that I did with highlighter. I made my skin glowy, just like Julianne’s but ya just can’t see it! ;P 😉

Hope you enjoyed this one! 

Any requests for Celebrity inspired looks?

❤ Lucy 😀

When I first started out with makeup, I was all obsessed over the eye shadows. That’s all I would buy! But now I love eyes, lips, and I’m starting to get obsessed with blushes! 😀

LOTD: Smokey Eyes: Do’s and Don’t’s

Hi my lovelies! 😀 So earlier, I did the TMI Tag, so check it out! Today’s look is how to do, and not to do a classic smokey eye. I went through each step, with tips on what to do and not to do. (the eye on your left is the right way to do it, and the eye on your right is the wrong one).

Image

The base: 

Do: apply some of the black cream base to the lid, and blend it out from there.

Don’t: apply the black base all over the eyes, and then blend out.

Image

Crease Blender:

Do: apply a matte gray shade, and blend.

Don’t: apply a matte black shade, and blend.

Image

Crease Definition:

Do: apply a darker matte gray to the crease and blend.

Don’t: apply a matte black to the crease and blend.

Image

Lids:

Do: apply an off-black to the lid.

Don’t: apply more black all over the lid.

Image

Blend:

Do: blend everything out with a mix of the black and grays.

Don’t: blend everything out with black.

Image

Lower Lash Line:

Do: apply the grays across the lower lash line, and a little black on the outer part, then blend.

Don’t: apply black thickly on the lower lash line, then blend.

Image

Brows:

Do: apply a warm brown to the brows.

Don’t: apply black to the brows.

Image

Waterline:

Do: apply black or dark gray to the waterline

Don’t: apply white to the waterline.

Image

The ‘don’t’ classic smokey eye..

Image

The ‘do’ classic smokey eye.

Image

You can even add a pop of color in the waterline if you want to.

I hope this was helpful!
