I’ve been doing lots of work behind the scenes. I cleaned up my sidebar. I added a few new sections. Midwest Kitchen will feature new recipes, meal ideas, tips and tricks. Maybe even new food finds or the occasional treat share. I can’t take credit for this. A friend of mine kindly suggested it and I really loved the idea. Spotlight will feature new products, swatches, cool finds, or even just songs I’m loving at the moment. I might even throw in a rant. If you know me personally then you know I can be very ranty. I’m going to try and update these daily or at the very least a few times a week. So check back from time to time to see what’s new.

I also changed up the footer on my posts. I sectioned it off to display info on products mentioned in the post. I also added a look section where I list other products worn. I’m not going to lie, I tend to wear the same stuff quite often. However, I do change it up from time to time. Especially if I’m testing out a new product. I just thought it might be helpful. I usually only post one or two looks to go with my reviews. This way you get to see when and how I’m using these products again. And maybe see what products I really love. You’ll see ColourPop a lot. That’s for sure.

Speaking of ColourPop, remember when I said I was going to stop buying their palettes? Well, that was a lie. Not that there’s anything wrong with their palettes. They’re easily some of my favorites. The problem is I have so many! They all start to look the same after a while and I’m sure I own every shade they’ve ever made. Yet here they are with their millions of palettes named after various colors, fruits, and animals and I go running to scoop them all up. Because who doesn’t need a turkey palette? Seriously, ColourPop, don’t get any ideas haha!

Anyway, the Smoke Show Palette really caught my eye. I’m not one to shy away from color, but grays and blacks intimidate me. I always feel like my look turns muddy. But I caved and bought the palette because it was cute and I thought it might be fun to experiment with. The Smoke Show Palette contains 9 eyeshadows including 3 metallics and 6 mattes. They are nicely pigmented and applied and blended beautifully! I don’t think my look turned out muddy, but I did reach for a brown shade from another palette to tone it down a bit. You can see a look I create with the Smoke Show Palette below.

Overall, I’d have to say I love the palette. You could very easily create a few looks without reaching for another palette. I personally feel more comfortable adding another shade, but it really isn’t necessary. My favorite shades would have to be Ignite and Night Dream. I’ll probably get the most use out of these two.

Did you purchase the Smoke Show Palette? What about any of ColourPop’s other palettes? It seems they are coming out with a new one every week. They have to run out of colors/food/objects eventually.
