Beauty Product Reviews
My favorite palette!
I'm obsessed with this palette for so many reasons! The packaging is nice. There is a magnetic closure and I've never had an issue with the palette opening in my makeup bag. I've also dropped it a few times (oops) and none of the shadows even chipped. There is also a large mirror, which I use as my main mirror when traveling. It's handy!
The eye shadows themselves are great. Half are matte, half are shimmer. I prefer this combination of textures over either Naked palette, where you're getting mostly shimmer. I feel this combination allows for more looks. It's definitely a versatile palette. The quality is also great.
The matte shades are all wonderful. None of them are chalky. All are nice and velvety, with little to no fallout. They are VERY pigmented, though. So a little goes a long way. The shimmer shades are also fun. All of them are great quality, with the exception of Champagne. I had high hopes for this one because the color is so beautiful. However, it seems to be a different formula than the rest. Rather than rich, satiny shimmer, it's more of a cheap, glittery shadow. I swatched it on my hand and immediately there was glitter all over. I tried it on the eyes and had glitter all over my cheeks within minutes. Other than that one shade, the rest are amazing. The other shimmers are very much a satin finish, no glitter at all. Pigmentation is out of this world. Love, love, love them.
All in all, it's a great palette. You have a little of everything in it. You can do anything with it, from super natural, to smokey, to a fun night out look. I would definitely recommend it over the Naked palettes any day!
The only lip balm I use.
I've always been obsessed with lip balm. And I've tried literally hundreds of brands. All year round I would feel like my lips were chapped, like I couldn't allow my lips to be bare. I tried EOS lip balm about a year ago, and I've been hooked ever since. Not only is it smoother and richer than other balms, but the effects last even after the product has worn off. I can go all day with having to reapply, and that's huge for me. My lips never feel dry or chapped. I have also found I do not have to scrub or exfoliate my lips anymore. The balm really helps keep my lips smooth and moisturized long after the product is gone.
The shape of the balm is both handy and inconvenient. On one hand, it's nice if you carry a larger purse. The shape makes it easy to find, even if you can't look while you dig. However, if you do not carry a purse, it can be a little bothersome. Carrying this product in your pocket is not comfortable and it looks a little strange, to be honest.
For me, the product itself outweighs the inconvenience of the packaging. I use it everyday and carry it with me wherever I go. I have one in my car, by my bed, in my bathroom, etc. Don't hesitate to buy this!
