So this morning I realized that I have hit over 800 followers! I think that’s so amazing. If you guys remember, after the last giveaway, I mentioned how we would have another at 1,000 or 1,500. Well I decided 1,000 would be a great idea. So make sure to tell your friends about the blog, share my posts on Twitter, etc. The faster we get to 1,000 the faster you can enter for another giveaway! Again this giveaway will be international, so please please, share.
Also don’t forget to send any questions, whether beauty related or what have you to email@example.com and I will put together a Q&A soon!
Also because I had some questions about a new sweatshirt. TROTB is an alt/rock solo project that I have been really into lately. Music is also available on iTunes, if you would like to check it out. I love sharing my music tastes with you guys and learning new music from you as well. Share some of your favourite bands/songs with me in the comments or through social media. Link to sweatshirt is underneath photo.
Now to what you really came for, swatching and new palettes! If you follow me on Instagram you probably have been anticipating these.
First off let me tell you how amazing this palette is. It is so pigmented, and SO smooth. Honestly, this palette is competing with my Modern Renaissance palette with how smooth and buttery these shadows are. I will say, I do have one problem with this palette and that’s with the shade ‘Medallion’. Don’t get me wrong its a lovely colour, but it is a glitter infused type of colour and the fall out is horrible. So I recommend being cautious with that particular colour, especially if you apply your foundation before you apply your shadow.
Also, I wanted to go ahead and answer a question someone sent to me; which was when should you apply your foundation. It’s ultimately up to you. There are so many ways to do make up and there is no right or wrong way. Me, personally I have a habit of applying my foundation first, however, if you are working with darker shadows, I recommend applying it after so you can avoid the fall out mess.
You may notice the double swatching. I enlisted my husbands help for this post. I just feel it would be more beneficial if I could show you guys swatches on two different skin tones. I always loved seeing this on Colourpops website, because you can get a better sense of the shades. Obviously I am the pasty ghost on top and my husbands is below. As you can see, the colours show up very nice on both tones. It really shows just how pigmented this palette is, which is such a great quality.
I honestly think this is such a nice Fall palette. Very neutrally and nudeish. You can create some natural looks as well as a nice smokey eye. This goes right there with Modern Renaissance. I have SO many palettes but this and Modern Renaissance are my two must-haves. If you are going to spend money on anything, make it worth it and get one of these.
