Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette – Coming March 17th!

Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette

Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette

There are few product releases that are a same-day buy for me. I can guarantee that this palette will be one of them.

I’ve been lusting after this palette since I first heard about it a few months back.

This launches on March 17th and you can buy it at Sephora for $49.00.

Summer Yum, Candied Peach, and Just Peachy are my favorite shades out of this palette by just viewing photos online.

These shades are warm and housed in a very familiar metal tin with magnetic closure – Very typical Too Faced fashion which I actually love. There’s a very nice mix of matte shades and shimmer shades.

Too Faced comes out with some of the cutest packaging I think I’ve ever seen and this one does not disappoint.

Guys, it smells like freaking peaches. If that’s not reason enough to pick up this beauty for summer, then I don’t know what is.

Next Thursday I’m going away with my boyfriend for a couple of days for my birthday. We chose Newport, Rhode Island at a cute historic inn. I am crossing my fingers that shipping is fast so I can bring this with me!

Will you guys be picking this up when it releases? Let me know in the comments!

NYX Highlight and Contour Pro Palette

NYX

 

******UPDATE******

It looks like NYX Cosmetics has adjusted their price for this product. I just hopped on their website and it’s down to $25. Drop it down to $20.00 and they’d have my money so fast, it’s not even funny.

******END UPDATE******

I’ve been incredibly intrigued by the new highlight and contour palettes hitting the beauty market as of late.

Read on to find out how the NYX Cosmetics Highlight and Contour palette stands up next to two very high end palettes. Continue reading

Ipsy January 2015 early Sneak Peek!

IpsyJanuary2015sneakpeek

 

“This January, each Ipsy subscriber will receive a full-size Pacifica Natural Mineral Coconut Eye Shadow, plus four more must-have beauty samples in a fun, fashionable cosmetics pouch.”

 

I’ll be honest about this sneak peek in saying that I am not thrilled about this product whatsoever. A few months back we had gotten a Pacifica duo eye shadow product. I swatched it once and forgot about it. The pigmentation isn’t there and the consistency is very chalky so build up is damn near impossible.

I am always willing to give a product a second chance, but this product really fell flat for me.

What do you guys think about this sneak peek?
