So I went shopping for my birthday and got a lot of items that I’ve been desiring for some time now. Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube page to stay updated on the latest video. I was in a desperate need to expand my eye makeup collection considering that I leave my eyes pretty neutral. In an effort to experiment with more colors and techniques, I purchased some pretty decent palette collections. Although I wasn’t concerned about being frugal, somehow I ended up saving anyway because of birthday discounts and holiday gift sets are everywhere. Checkout my video for more details on my goodies but see below on swatches from the palettes and other items from haul. Complete Haul is shown on my YouTube video. Enjoy!
First Up: Too Faced Gift Set at Ulta
|Too Faced Be Merry Be Bright Gift Set|
These palettes had beautiful shimmery colors my only disappointment was how hard it was to get a good swatch. I assume that it will take plenty of brush dips to get a decent pigment eye color when being used plus the shadows seemed very powdery. Nevertheless, I will get some good use out of them because some of the colors are just to die for. If you don’t mind the work I think it’s worth purchasing this season.
