Tarte Amazonian Clay shimmering powder in Champagne-this product was gifted to me and I honestly don’t think they make it in the shimmery quilted packaging that I have.  This is a beautifully buttery highlight with the right amount of shimmer.  It can be built up but looks beautiful wherever it’s applied.  (more…)

You should be watching……

Hi all, I haven’t posted in a bit….life has been taking most of my time. So I thought I would fill this space with something constructive.  I know on some of the Facebook groups that I belong to, people will ask for new YouTube channels or blogs to read?  Well have I got one for you…..

I have been a fan of Julie in DC for a while.  Lately I’ve been loving her more….and it’s because of her YouTube channel. Her last 2 videos have been a huge hit and incredibly helpful to me. So I thought I would share-check out her videos on lip contouring (yes that’s a thing) and making your dark eye circles disappear and concealing under the eye.

I highly recommend watching and following along (and no she’s not paying me to say this)!

Annabelle Smokey Nudes Eyeshadow Palette

*This product was sent to me for review*

smokey nudes

From Annabelle:

Can’t get enough of the nude trend? We can’t either! This palette is the ultimate in versatility thanks to its minimalist and ultrafresh shades. With its mix of warm, cool, dark and light, you can create the perfect look for your skintone. Keep it simple with an “I’m not really trying” by day, or go with an intense smoky eye by night. Go ahead and play!

Key features:

  • Perfume and paraben free
  • Hypo-allergenic
  • Tested under ophthalmological control

My thoughts:

This palette from Annabelle is a great addition to any makeup lovers collection! It is light, portable and versatile in terms of color.  The shadows blend well and have a decent wear time (with a primer).  Plan to apply with a separate eyeshadow brush-although the palette comes with one, I like bigger eyeshadow brushes and fluffy crease brushes to blend these.

This palette has a suggested retail of $12.95 CAD
