Cat’s Pajamas Palette…

Hey friends! Happy Saturday! So for todays post I wanted to see what everyone was thinking about Laura Lee’s Cat’s Pajamas eye shadow palette. When I first saw her swatch and talk about the palette I have to admit I was super underwhelmed. It is a pretty palette but the black doesn’t seem to be very pitch black and even though I die for a fantastic cranberry and gold eye shadow shades.. I just don’t think the palette is worth 40$.                                                   IMG_2499 The packaging is beautiful but it doesn’t seem to all match with the flowers and glitter to me. I also don’t think there is a great mixture of matte colors in the palette. IMG_2500 Who ever swatched this did make the black look better than Laura did in her video but I am still super unsure. I also understand that it comes down to 4$ an eyeshadow but I can’t get over the fact that I can get the Morphe 35F palette with very similar shades, 35 colors, and only a price of 23$..

I can’t wait to see what people do with the palette and what they think. Let me know in the comments if you are going to purchase and what you think about her palette!!!

Best Fall Palette!!!

Guys I have been talking about this palette for a minute now and I finally have time to get this review up. You seriously can’t beat this deal! Bad Habit has quickly become one of my favorite indie brands that I have stumbled across. They make some seriously amazing dupes and it only cost 10$… 10$!!!!!!! This is the Retro Love palette.IMG_2433 It is a fantastic dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture palette. At only a quarter of the price. It is really just unbelievable. The colors are creamy and pigmented and I literally can’t put this palette down. I have worn it almost everyday since I purchased it. It is the perfect fall palette and you can create so many looks with it.

I can’t wait to see what else Bad Habit comes out with because lately they have been crushing it!

Till next time friends, ps go buy this palette!

Your Lash Bar Review

Your Lash Bar: Full review. Friends lets jump in!

As part of my goals I set for myself each month, I usually have one that is about getting dressed and accessorizing and in general putting myself together more often/better, even if I don’t leave the house. So as part of that, that means putting my face together. I always look for new lashes and I have some that are absolutely amazing and love but that doesn’t mean I don’t continue to look for others for my collection. I have decided to try out this brand Your Lash Bar which I found on instagram.

They are super affordable: 3 for 15$ or 5 for 25$ or 6$ each. IMG_2397I picked up these 3 styles. Top left is Kamikaze. Top right is Bellini. Bottom is Manhattan. All their lashes are named after drinks, so cute! I also picked up this lash applicator tool, I usually use tweezers which works great but I thought I would give this a try. I love the packaging. The marble with the rose gold lettering and the drink glasses in the letters. All the little details are beautiful.

The lashes are nice quality at such a great price. They are not too heavy and don’t weigh down the eyes, which of course is important. Bellini and Manhattan will definitely be staples in my lash rotation. Kamikaze will probably be more for special looks and photos because of how over the top they are.

Overall these lashes are a total hit! Give them a try and let me know what you think!
