There were a couple of eyeshadow palettes that I’ve had my eyes on. Do I need a new eyeshadow palette? No. But when shiny new things make their way to social media I can’t help but drool over them all! I let my wonderful husband treat me to just ONE. At first it wasn’t an easy decision. Here’s what I had to choose from; Beauty Killer by Jeffree Star Cosmetics, The Fun Palette by Ciaté London, the Serpentina Palette by Kat Von D which will be launching on July 5th, and finally the Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills. As you can see I went with the Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette. After seeing swatches flood my Instagram account I just knew I needed it in my life. And boy did I choose well!

This beautiful palette contains 14 shades in neutral to berry tones. These shadows are incredibly soft and buttery. Love Letter is the only one that felt a little dry, but it’s still easy to work with. Primavera was super soft and almost creamy. It just glided onto my arm. Most of these were super pigmented with just one swipe. But I did build up for photo purposes. Buon Fresco is seriously beautiful! My swatch doesn’t do it much justice. Cyprus Umber surprised me because I assumed it would be dry or chalky, but it was just as soft and buttery as all of the other shadows. These shadows were all very easy to work with. They applied and blended beautifully!

The palette also comes with a double-ended brush for application and blending. I don’t think it’s anything special, but I suppose it’s good to have if you’re traveling or something. I can see this palette being extra special in the Fall with all of the berry shades, but I’m totally going to be rocking the heck out of it now. It’s seriously one of the prettiest palettes in my collection now. You can see a look I created with the Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette below. I totally plan to post more looks in the future. I don’t see me putting this in my tool box any time soon. At the moment it’s sitting on top of my ‘Daily Use’ tray.

I’m wearing Love Letter on my lid, Realgar in my crease, Tempera as my highlight, and Cyprus Umber on my lower lash line. As you can see I opted for a colorful look, but you can just as easily create a more neutral look. I’m really loving this palette!

I have a feeling I’ll be buying that Kat Von D palette anyway. I just can’t pass up a pretty palette.

So this is an older post that has been sitting on the back burner for a few months now. I’m really trying to work my way through some of my older purchases that I have yet to show any love to. It’s hard when I still have so many new things sitting on my desk that I so desperately want to dig into. I realized that I had a problem when I started drooling over swatches of the new ColourPop lipsticks and started planning my order. I had to stop myself because I still have lipsticks from my last purchase that I haven’t posted! So here goes!

I just had to get Brooklyn! Brooklyn is described as a warm bright hot pink. It applied perfectly! It was very lightweight and made for a comfortable wear. It lasted pretty much all day and even when I went to remove it at the end of the day it left behind a slight stain. I’m really digging this shade. Besides the cool name it’s a really pretty color and perfect for Summer. Which is in full swing with those 100+ degree temperatures. You can see Brooklyn in action below.

So back to the new ColourPop Ultra Metallic lipsticks. I’m totally still getting them. They’ll be perfect for Fall! Have you seen the swatches? They’re so pretty!
