I’ve been wanting to try the new MAC Pro Palettes since they were released but wasn’t feeling the price. The price has since dropped drastically and I decided to take the plunge. See my thoughts on the newer palettes and how they compare to the older and now discontinued ones.
Something about green and purple eyeshadows just really make brown eyes pop. The Kevyn Aucoin Essential Eyeshadow Set in Palette #6 is filled with cool toned minty greens along with a popping purple, pearl white to highlight and soft black to define. All of the shades are silky smooth, easy to apply and blend and are very long lasting. It’s such a gorgeous palette!
I’m a big fan of Do It Yourself lipstick palettes, especially in the form of pans which doesn’t take up too much space and makes it easy to switch the order of shades. I recently moved all of my lipsticks in my MUA Kit to a pan form palette and couldn’t be happier. While creating that palette I also used a Yaby Stackable Set Palette to make a mini palette with some of the shades that I have in my kit but not in my personal collection . It’s so cute and fits right in the palm of my hand making it easy to throw into my purse and go!
I’m in the process of revamping my MUA Kit to condense it into smaller storage and was looking for a new way to store my lipsticks. While at The Makeup Show NYC I stopped at the Z Palette booth and saw the large palette and empty pans and figured that this would be perfect.

Sleek MakeUp never ceases to amaze me with their low cost, high performing products. The latest product in the line up, The Lip4 Palettes, are six purse sized lip palettes that contain four extremely pigmented shades in three finishes matte, gloss and satin. I was sent three of the palettes to review Havana, Show Girl & Siren. Check them out.
An awesome makeup look starts with groomed brows and Anastasia is the queen of the eyebrows. The Bold & Beautiful Kit is designed to mimic a set of books and features 2 palettes, one to groom the brows and the other to define the eyes.
Another nude eyeshadow palette on the scene. Yup, that’s right another one. This time from Senna Cosmetics. The Haute Nudes Sultry Eye & Face Palette features six warm nude eyeshadows in hues of rich browns and of course a traditional milky nude is in the mix. The palette also includes a blush and highlighting powder to compliment the eyeshadows along with three mini brushes for on the go application
