Make Up For Ever Blue Sepia Palette


Swatches: #128 Copper Fawn, #28 Coffee, #152 Light Pink, Petrol Blue


Swatches: #04 Black, #98 Brown, #17 Espresso, #127 Metallic Taupe

Have you guys seen this HOT palette from Make Up For Ever? I haven’t stopped talking about it ever since Make Up For Ever posted it on their Facebook page. My wonderful husband tried convincing me that it looked like every other palette I own until he saw it on me. Once he saw the awesomeness that is the Blue Sepia Palette he knew that he was wrong and agreed that it was in fact a must have.

There are 8 eyeshadows in this palette. #128 Copper Fawn, #28 Coffee, #152 Light Pink, Petrol Blue, #04 Black, #98 Brown, #17 Espresso, and #127 Metallic Taupe. These shadows are all nicely pigmented and flow together perfectly. You can opt for a fairly bold look or go neutral if you prefer. Whatever style you’re going for I’m sure the Blue Sepia Palette will not disappoint. You can see a look I created with this amazing palette below. I applied Petrol Blue on my lid, #128 in my crease, #28 on the outer corner of my crease, #17 on my lower lash line, and #152 on the inner corner of my eye and as my highlighter.


If you happen to come across this palette, scoop it up! I’m glad I did!

Swatches: KB Shimmer You Autumn Know

While doing a little Googling for Autumn inspired nails I stumbled upon KB Shimmer You Autumn Know and fell in love. I just had to have it!

From the website: “Crunchy leaves in shades of red, burgundy, yellow and brown litter the sidewalks, white flakes of snow slowly cover the autumn shades. You Autumn Know was inspired by that first snow of the year. This soft white crelly polish is loaded with fuchsia, gold, and orange glitters. Micro bars accent the fall pallet of this polish. Best in three coats, or two coats over white.”

I applied 2 coats and that was fine for me. It applied nicely and evenly with no issues at all. To me these colors don’t really jump out and scream ‘Autumn,’ but after reading the description I do see the pretty picture that was painted. It’s soothing and relaxing as opposed to the bold and more vibrant colors I’m used to during this time of year. It’s a nicer, softer, more relaxing approach. And I’m totally loving it!

MAC Antonio Lopez 6 Eyes: Teal


MAC Antonio Lopez 6 Eyes: Teal


Swatches (Left to Right): Nighttrain, Colourful Life, Freshwater, Sex & Disco, Sketchbook, Fashion Legend

I was so excited about the MAC Antonio Lopez Collection mainly because of this palette. The packaging is so stylish and well, cool! I’m such a sucker for pretty packaging. *lowers head in shame* The teal palette was an easy choice because I’m all about teals/blues/greens. Who am I kidding? I’m all about ANY and ALL colors! But I’ve never been known to pass on teal anything. So there you have it.

Nighttrain is a charcoal gray with crystalline frost, Colourful Life is a dark teal, Freshwater is a midtone sparkling blue with blue pearl, Sex & Disco is a sparkling cool silver, Sketchbook is a glittery blackened olive, and Fashion Legend is a black with pink pearl. Colourful Life would have to be my favorite of the 6. It’s such a beautiful teal shade! All of these shadows flowed nicely together making it easy for me to create a nice look. Which you can see below.


I used Colourful Life on my lid, Sketchbook in my crease, Sex & Disco on the outter corner of my crease, Freshwater on the inner part of my lower lash line, Fashion Legend on the rest of my lash line, and Nighttrain on the inner corner of my eye and as my highlighter. It lasted all day with very little to no creasing or fading. I did experience a little bit of fallout, but it wasn’t so bad. And the glittery bits sitting just above the wing part of my liner is a glittery gold liner from elf. *shrug* I was trying something out. If it didn’t apply so patchy I think it would have turned out pretty amazing.
