Birthday Gift


Yesterday was my birthday! So when I placed my most recent order at Sephora I added my 2015 Sephora Birthday Gift to my cart. I look forward to my Sephora birthday gifts every year. This year is my favorite so far. It’s a pair of mini NARS Lip Pencils in Cruella and Rikugien. Cruella is described as a scarlet red and Rikugien is described as a rose pink. I don’t already own these 2 shades so I was very happy to add them to my collection. They’re both very pretty and wearable shades. It almost made me forget that I had turned another year older. Almost.

Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Eyeshadow Palette

When I first caught wind of this palette a few months back, I just knew that I had to make it mine. I don’t know what it is about Kat Von D’s products that makes me want/need them all. Actually I do. The quality is amazing and her artwork is even more amazing. I remember going shopping with my butthead brother-in-law’s girlfriend earlier on this year. She asked me to recommend something from the Kat Von D line while in Sephora and so I suggested one of the palettes. When she went to go open it up she just threw away the box. I stood there for a good long minute just staring into the trash wondering what kind of person does these things. That was a work of art, man!

Well, the Mi Vida Loca Remix palette is an even prettier work of art. And the shadows! Once you slide the palette out it’s like you’re staring at a rainbow. It’s gorgeous! There are 24 eyeshadows total. I really like how it’s set up with the neutral shades in the center and the colorful shades surrounding it. You can easily create a nice neutral look or go all out with a bold colorful look. I’ve actually done both just for this post! You can check them out below.


It looks like the shadow is creased in the photos, but I assure you it isn’t. I just didn’t look down like I usually do. Oh and I got really confused with this palette while swatching and missed a shadow. That shadow is Vinyl. I’m sure you must have seen it swatched about a dozen times by now so I don’t feel too bad about it. I think I just got confused because the shadow before it was also green. Oops? And please pardon the fallout all over my Fitbit. The Fitbit attracts a lot of that kind of stuff and I didn’t even notice until after I already took the photos.

Did you get the Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Eyeshadow Palette? Are you a fellow Kat Von D fangirl? Well, y’all already know I am hahaha!

Note: I really tried to get this post up before the palette sold out, unfortunately that didn’t happen. I’m not sure if Sephora is planning to restock or not, but according to Dupethat the Morphe 35b Palette contains a lot of similar shades and is sold at a fraction of the cost. Just figured I’d throw that out there.
