Idk what it was about this palette but it just spoke to me 😍 (what palette doesn’t? 😂)
Here are eye swatches of all the colors
B2 was the most patchy for sure, B1 was weirdly patchy too.
All the shimmers were applied with my finger and the others with a packer brush
I was looking to up my swatch game and remembered my mom is able to make some stencils for me.
Tetris X Ipsy
I’m suffering from a bit of insomnia so I decided to swatch a random palette.
The mattes were mostly soft and pigmented and the shimmers were buttery.
The purples and olive greens were the hardest to build up.
These swatches are several swipes to really show the color of the shadows.
I haven’t been posting because I’ve been struggling with how/what to post.
I want this to be a place I can go more in depth with reviews and products but if I forget something on a day then I don’t post.
So here are my looks for the last couple of days.
I’m in the middle of moving and am limited to what makeup I have, which I’m kind of liking lol.
Tarte Pro palette for the eyes
Colourpop Main Squeeze on the eyes
Natasha Denona Biba palette for the eyes
I started June makeup free so this has been it for June!
This is the second time I’ve used this palette and it surprised me by coming apart on me.
I’m not sure exactly what happened, the shadow cleanly came out of the pan. Unfortunately I was in the car and I spent a few minutes trying to figure out what to do.
After collecting myself I was able to maneuver the shadow back in the pan and used a towel to press it back temporarily.
I’m not going to lie, it completely bummed me out. For $129 you would think I wouldn’t have any issues; I was able to repress it but I’m considering exchanging it anyway so I can avoid risking it falling out again.
Has this happened to anyone else?
What would you do?
Here’s today’s look using the palette
I’m still going strong with sticking to a handful of palettes I selected for the month and, fortunately, I selected one that fit in perfect for today’s theme.
I decided to shop my stash and only use products I’ve had for a while but haven’t touched. Here’s what I used
Too Faced original Chocolate Soleil bronzer
Too Faced Natural Love palette
Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless foundation in 310
Tarte Shape Tape
Colourpop super satin lip in 951
Anastasia brow pomade (this is one of two things I use and didn’t have anything else to use)
Becca Highlight in Opal (not pictured)
Overall I’m happy with my look and I’m glad I got to use old products I used to love
Here are the colors I used from the palette
I’m still going strong on using only my single pressed shadows this week.
I used, in order from left to right,
Issues/ Sea Star/ Popular Demand/ Feathered/ Mr. Sandman
I would recommend wetting your brush when you use Mr. Sandman to avoid fallout and make the color stand out more
