Make Up For Ever Artist Palette Volume 3 – Florals($52) is the newest makeup palette from one of my favourite makeup brands ever. It has eight MUFE Artist Shadows, including one that can be used as a blush. To be honest though, if you wanted to wear the bright teal as a blush, you GO GIRL…all of Make Up For Ever’s shadows can be used where ever you please, unlike some brands…no warnings in case you use certain colours near the eye…#WTHUrbanDecay #StopThatCrapPlease

SIGH…yeah I’m a neutral shadow lover too, but when a palette puts a lilac shade in there, all bets are off…until I swatch though, because let’s get real…most lilac shadows kind of suck.

Swatchy Time! Click the pic to enlarge the photo to see it better. And these are ONE SWIPE swatches, so you know.

And here are the names of the shades if you care because I’m way to lazy to type them out.

MUFE Artist Eyeshadows are a dream to use! So buttery, so blendable…if I had the money I’d buy every single one I swear. But thank goodness they make these palettes. It’s a good way to collect multiple shades for a fraction of the price. And since this palette is called Florals,  my eye look is inspired by Irises-just click on the image to enlarge it.

Make Up For Ever Artist Palette Volume 3 – Florals

I have the neutral MUFE Volume 1  palette, and wow I can hardly wait to use some of these colourful floral shades with that palette! But as you can see, this palette can be used on its own no problem. I used 6 eye shadow shades for this eye look, but I was testing out the palette. You don’t need to use that many shades all at once. And that lilac is to DIE for as you can see! With the Sephora Spring Sale on right now, the Make Up For Ever Artist Palette Volume 3 is even a better deal. I highly recommend this one if you are looking for a colourful eyeshadow palette for spring and summer!

What do you think? Do you wear colourful eyeshadows like this? Or are you just a neutral shadow lover?

Pür Minerals will always be one of my favourite mineral makeup lines. Their 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Powder is one of my favourite powder foundations actually. I’ve been using it forever. It’s the fastest way to a flawless makeup. But I’ve never really tried much else from the line, which I think was a BIG mistake.

The Pür Minerals Love Your Selfie Palette($49) is freakin’ AMAZING.

Pür Minerals Love Your Selfie Palette.jpg

Pür Minerals Love Your Selfie Palette

The Pür Minerals Love Your Selfie is a travel-friendly kit that’s filled with everything you need to get a picture perfect makeup look. Inside the palette are eight limited edition eyes shadow shades, a lip gloss, mascara, and three face powders-a bronzer, blush and highlighter. What else do you need?

The eyeshadows are pretty great! There’s a nice mix of mattes and shimmers in the palette. The only shade I had some problem with was Photobomb, the purple one, and that’s because there’s glitters in it. I think it’s better used as a liner. Everything else blends nicely and stays put over a primer all day. I love the shades too, as they’re all so easy to wear. This is going to be my permanent travel palette from now on. Yup.

You get a deluxe sample size of the Pür Minerals Big Look Mascara too.

Pür Minerals Big Look Mascara

I like it! It’s got Argan Oil in it, so it leaves your lashes nice and soft. It gives nice definition, and the brush I like too-it’s one of those spiky silicone wands, but it’s doesn’t hurt at all. It stays put on me too, with no smudging. AND it doesn’t sting or hurt my eyes when I remove it. I’m going to get a full-size one as soon as I’m finished with this one for sure.

The palette also contains face products too, so it’s Face and Lips Swatchy Time!

Mineral Glow Bronzer, Chateau Cheeks Blush In Savvy, Afterglow illuminating Powder, and  in Exposed

The Pür Minerals Mineral Glow Bronzer is wow! I’ve tried this bronzer before, but it’s a lot prettier than I remember it being! It’s really natural looking, and makes an amazing contour too. The Chateau Cheeks Blush In Savvy is a warm pink that goes with everything and looks really pretty on the cheeks. And the Afterglow Illuminating Powder is one of the best highlighters I’ve tried in a long time! It doesn’t emphasize any fine lines or wrinkles and gives a really pretty, natural looking highlight. Last, there’s a full size of the Chateau Kisses Lip Gloss in Exposed, which is a great, neutral rose gloss that’s quite pigmented. And it’s not sticky at all. I don’t do sticky glosses at all. It’s really moisturizing too! It’s an anti-aging gloss, with Resveratrox from Bordeaux grapes to help reduce lip lines and wrinkles, and also plumps up your lips(no tingle plumping though).

Wearing and loving the Pür Minerals Love Your Selfie palette

I really, REALLY love this palette! It’s simple and I’m all about simple lately. I’ve been getting rid of a lot of makeup that I just don’t use, but this palette is staying with me. It’s just too awesome, and I know I’ll use it a lot, especially when I travel. I think the Pür Minerals Love Your Selfie is a palette that’s worth getting if :

1. You’re interested in trying the best that Pür Minerals has to offer

2. Need a great travel makeup palette, because this is IT

3. You love Pür Minerals

4: Because there’s a really awesome Instagram Contest you can enter if you get it!

What’s your favourite travel makeup palette? Have you tried anything from Pür Minerals? What else should I try that’s good?

So, yeah…I should finish talking about the rest of the Dior Cosmopolite Fall 2015 Collection, hey?  😛

There are two new limited edition Dior 5 Couleurs Cosmopolite Eyeshadow Palettes($70 each) in #766 Exubèrante and #866 Eclectic. They sure do make you yearn for fall! They don’t? Ok, maybe just me then! I’ve had enough of summer that’s for sure and can hardly wait for fall. As much as I’m looking forward to going back to California next week, I’m sure not happy about going back to 35C weather.

 Dior 5 Couleurs Cosmopolite Eyeshadow Palettes.jpg

Dior 5 Couleurs Cosmopolite Eyeshadow Palettes in #766 Exubèrante and #866 Eclectic

The shades are perfect for the season. The two centre shades-the gold and and the silver- look really sparkly in the pan, and kind of surprised me as being  Dior’s pick for “fall” shades. Usually you see holiday collections with those colours. But that’s just an overspray and underneath the sparkly mess, those two shadows are really quite creamy and nice. Unique too!

Swatchy Time for Dior 5 Couleurs Cosmopolite Eyeshadow Palette #766 Exubèrante:

Dior 5 Couleurs Cosmopolite Eyeshadow Palettes .jpg

Dior 5 Couleurs Cosmopolite Eyeshadow Palette #766 Exubèrante

The only shade that’s problematic is the blue shade. It’s a matte, with some glitter flecks. I don’t get why brands(and it’s not just Dior, loads of brands do this) make shadows in this kind of formula. They never work well imo. The glitters don’t really fuse with the powder and just ruin it. You can see that it doesn’t swatch well, and on the eye it’s the same. It’s best used as a liner shade, or you can use a wet brush to apply it. Works really well that way, and that’s what I did on my bottom lash line. The other shades are creamy and apply and blend nicely, although I do find that it does take some time to blend them. That white gold shade is amazing though-I love that it’s not your typical yellow gold eyeshadow. It’s so much prettier and quite unique for a gold shade-it’s almost cool toned, and I’d label it that way for sure.

Swatchy Time for Dior 5 Couleurs Cosmopolite Eyeshadow Palette #866 Eclectic:

Dior 5 Couleurs Cosmopolite Eyeshadow Palettes.jpg

Dior 5 Couleurs Cosmopolite Eyeshadow Palette #866 Eclectic

Again from the swatches, you can see that the burgundy shade in Dior 5 Couleurs Cosmopolite Eyeshadow Palette #866 Eclectic is that matte with glitters shadow that I’m not fond of. It takes a bit of time to blend out as well, but I do like the shade! The dark matte hunter green is another one you have to be careful with-too much blending and it can disappear on you, like it did in my look here. It’s on my bottom lash line, but you can barely see it. That silver though! It’s something else! I’ve been looking for a silver eyeshadow like this forever! Most silvers are really metallic or frosted, and lean blue. Not this one! It’s a true grey/white silver-perfect! It really glows and I love it.

Dior 5 Couleurs Cosmopolite Eyeshadow Palettes.jpg

Dior 5 Couleurs Cosmopolite Eyeshadow Palette #866 Eclectic

Here’s another look where I used the hunter green on the bottom lash line, but didn’t blend it out too much. You can see how well it goes with the burgundy shade.

Dior 5 Couleurs Cosmopolite Eyeshadow Palettes .jpg

Dior 5 Couleurs Cosmopolite Eyeshadow Palette #866 Eclectic

I’m a bit torn about the Dior 5 Couleurs Cosmopolite Eyeshadow Palettes. I don’t hate them, but I don’t love them either. They kind of get on my eyeshadow nerve to be honest hahaha 😛 I like the colour combos and the shades a lot, but then again they’re not all that unique. Except for the silver and gold shades-those really are unique and boy, I’d love to have them in a separate duo! The rest of the shadows though, aren’t the easiest to work with and require a bit of patience. But if you are a blending fiend and have good brushes, you can create some beautiful fall looks with them. Me? I’d rather spend the money on the Rouge Dior Lipsticks from the Cosmopolite Collection, but that’s because I’m not a big eyeshadow fan these days. Although, fall is the season that make me bust out a smoky eye look more often!

What do you think of the Dior 5 Couleurs Cosmopolite Eyeshadow Palettes? Have you tried them? Will you be picking them up? Do you wear more smoky eye looks in the fall too?

There are three new New Mary Kay At Play Baked Eye Trios($14 each) for summer, and the colours are pretty amazing!

Mary Kay At Play Baked Eye Trios.jpg

Mary Kay At Play Baked Eye Trios: Neopolitan, Out of the Blue,Purple Eclipse

These trios have three bright, pigmented eye shadows that are really bright! If you love baked eyeshadows, Mary Kay At Play Baked Eye Trios should be on your list to try. They are some of the best ones out there!

Swatchy Time!

Mary Kay At Play Baked Eye Trios.jpg

Mary Kay At Play Baked Eye Trios: Neopolitan, Out of the Blue

That blue! SO pretty!

Mary Kay At Play Baked Eye Trios.jpg

Mary Kay At Play Baked Eye Trios: Purple Eclipse

The Mary Kay At Play Baked Eye Trio in Purple Eclipse is probably my least fave of the bunch, as I found that one a bit harder to work with than the other two. The shades are bit more matte(not totally for the purple shade as you can see) than the other two trios, which some people may like. Me, I prefer my baked eye shadows to have that shine, if ya’ know what I mean. Plus, I like using my baked eyeshadows wet, especially on the lid and when they’re a bit more matte, you can’t do that so well. This trio works best used dry, just as I swatched it! Which is still pretty though!

I had to do a look using the Out of the Blue trio because that blue shade is so WOW, but I did use the purple shade from Purple Eclipse in the outer V.

Mary Kay At Play Baked Eye Trios.jpg

Mary Kay At Play Baked Eye Trios

The purple changes the blue to a really pretty shade, hey? I like it! There is fallout during application because these are mineral-based, so be sure to apply your eye makeup before your foundation. Of course, if you wet your brush like I like to do, there’s barely any fallout. See, there is a method to my madness, as I keep telling ya’ using mineral shadows with a wet brush is THE way to go hahaha…. 😛

Mary Kay At Play Baked Eye Trios

Easy to use, pigmented, and blend well, these Mary Kay At Play Baked Eye Trios are affordable colourful summer fun! Get them while you can from www.marykay.ca  or from your local Mary Kay Rep!

Blue eyeshadow! It’ll always be one of my fave colours! How about you? Do you wear blue eyeshadow? Or does it scare you? 

 

Ready for more Dior? 😀 The Dior Tie Dye Summer 2015 Collection includes two 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palettes Contraste Horizon & Ambre Nuit. Now, I’m not a huge fan of Dior eyeshadows, but one of these I actually like.

Dior Tie Dye Summer 2015 Collection.jpg

Dior Tie Dye Summer 2015 Collection|5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palettes Contraste Horizon & Ambre Nuit

Let’s talk about the Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette Ambre Nuit, since it’s ok but not my favourite to be honest. It’s going to be a permanent addition to their palette line-up. So if it does appeal to you, there’s no hurry to pick it up.

Swatchy Time!

 photo IMG_9989.jpg

Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette Ambre Nuit,

Pretty enough. Neutral enough. Easy enough to wear. Unique though? Eh, not really. You’d have to be a serious Dior fangirl to shell out $62 for this palette. The other shades are pretty and are ok to work with, but like I said-just not that special.

 photo IMG_0242.jpg

Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette Ambre Nuit

The peach shade is probably the most unique shade, but it’s kinda chalky and takes a bit of building up to get decent colour payoff. The bronze taupe is pretty, but again…worth $62? Nope.

But the Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette Contraste Horizon though? YEAH BABY. Let’s a closeup of this lil’ beauty!

Ok, my camera kinda’ sucks I know…I need to get a new one. If you have any camera suggestions please let me know! But trust me-in person Contraste Horizon is really pretty!

Swatchy Time!

This is one fun summer palette you guys!  You can go all mermaid eyes with it if you want!

Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette Contraste Horizon

That teal is gorgeous. I used to wear teals all the time! I forgot how much I love them, so thanks Dior for the memory jog. That pale sage green is a tad chalky-why Dior keeps putting sparkles in mattes is ??? like just make a matte shadow that works dudes. That white shadow is matte and a lot of people hate that it’s there, and I agree it does look out of place. But I like it. It’s not a WOW WHITE, but a soft white that looks great on the inner eye corners. It even pulls a tad pink on me, so I like it.

Or you can go all bronze beach goddess with Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette Contraste Horizon if that floats your summer makeup boat.

Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette Contraste Horizon.jpg

That copper is soft and buttery smooth, as is the gold shade. Really easy to apply and blend out.

 photo DIOR AMBER CLSEDIMG_0386.jpg

Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette Contraste Horizon

Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette Contraste Horizon I think is worth the money, and if you want it and see it I say pick it up because I can see this one selling out. But to be honest again, it’s not all that unique? It kinda’ reminds me of past Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Palettes that came out every summer. So again, you may already have shades like these in your collection. It’s not a must have, but a nice to have!

Whaddaya’ think? Are you yearning for one of these palettes? Or are they a skip for you? 

Kat Von D Holiday Palettes have a cult following, and for good reason! They are usually really great! This year’s offering is the Kat Von D Star Studded Eyeshadow Book($66). If you judge an eye shadow palette by its cover, then this one looks like a winner, hey?

 Kat Von D Star Studded Eyeshadow Book.jpg

Kat Von D Star Studded Eyeshadow Book

The Kat Von D Star Studded Eyeshadow Book is great value. You get 24 eye shadows arranged into six quad colour stories. There’s a plastic covering that’s attached to the palette that has all the eyeshadow names printed on it.

Kat Von D Star Studded Eyeshadow Book.jpg

Kat Von D Star Studded Eyeshadow Book

I find that rather annoying? Why is it attached? It just gets in my way Kat! I’d rather it be a removable sheet. I mean the names of each shade are printed on the back of the palette, so I don’t need that sheet ALL the time.

 Kat Von D Star Studded Eyeshadow Book.jpg

Kat Von D Star Studded Eyeshadow Book

I’m surprised at how many nudes and neutrals are in the Kat Von D Star Studded Eyeshadow Book. Usually her palettes are filled with loads of colour. I guess because you’re supposed to use the shadows as “quads”, Kat felt the need to have a light neutral base shade in each one. But I think there’s too many. You’ll see what I mean when I swatch. I’ve never had an eyeshadow palette with so many shades that kind of blend right into my skin tone! Also, I didn’t swatch them in the supposed quads, I swatched them by row. That’s how I saw the colours going together in my mind. Yeah, my mind works differently. But you already knew that, right? RIGHT. So let’s get this Swatchy Time started!

As you can see, there’s quite an array of matte, pearl, shimmer, and iridescent finishes. BUT there’s a lot of glitter. Like, A LOT. I don’t get why brands think we want all the glitter? If there’s one shadow finish I HATE it’s mattes with GLITTER. LIKE WHY. I want a matte to be MATTE. Is that so hard? Sigh. The shimmer shades are really nice, the mattes are kind of chalky except for the orange shade Mandala-it’s STUNNING. The pearls aren’t bad, and some of the iridescence shades swatch horribly. To be honest, MOST of the palette doesn’t swatch well. It doesn’t feel like a normal Kat Von D palette at all. The amazing quality that usually makes her holiday palettes so covetable isn’t really there when you feel the shadows in the Kat Von D Star Studded Eyeshadow Book.

But on the eye, they DO work. You need a primer for sure. Those iridescent shades work better if you pat them on the eye-don’t blend them otherwise you’ll have trouble. Although, I did use Gothica on my lower lash line in that first oranges look and it did work as you can see. The navy Estrella shade in the second look I patted on. I had to be very careful blending it out. Craft is the green iridescent shade on my bottom lash line in the last look, and it too needs care. The glitter particles in the iridescent shades are big. And while the finished look is pretty and sparkly, they are a bit of a pain to apply.

Kat Von D Star Studded Eyeshadow Book.jpg

Kat Von D Star Studded Eyeshadow Book

I’m kind of torn about the Kat Von D Star Studded Eyeshadow Book. I think the problem is there’s been some inconsistency in the production, because some people have palettes where some of the shades are really bad quality-wise. This one I got isn’t SO bad. But it’s still not Kat Von D quality that’s for sure. WAY too much glitter for my taste. Applying the shadows you get loads of fallout too and glitter all over the face doesn’t make Tracy a happy blogger. But the end result is pretty, hey? Is it worth getting? I’m not sure. I think if you are a huge Kat Von D fan, then maybe take the chance? Especially during the Sephora Family and Friends sale which I’m pretty sure is next week. You might get one like mine. If not, you can return it. You gotta love Sephora for that. You can order the Kat Von D Star Studded Eyeshadow Book HERE if it’s something that you think will work for you!

Are you a huge Kat Von D eyeshadow palette fan? Marky usually is. I haven’t showed her this one since she’s not here as you know LOL, but I don’t think she’d go for this one to be honest. Where’s the red eyeshadow this year? There’s always a red! I’m pining for one now! 

*product sent by PR for review, thoughts are mine as always!

Avon True Color 8-in-1 Eyeshadow Palette($15) is a new product from Avon. At least for me! I can’t remember if the True Color shadows have ever come in a bigger size than a quad, but if someone out there does, then let me know. There are three Avon True Color 8-in-1 Eyeshadow Palettes available: Not So Neutral, Plum Essentials, and this one called Starry Nights.

Avon True Color 8-in-1 Eyeshadow Palette.jpg

Avon True Color 8-in-1 Eyeshadow Palette

Kind of ironic that I took this picture of Avon True Color 8-in-1 Eyeshadow Palette Starry Nights in FULL SUN actually. But I wanted to make sure you could see the sparkles in some of the shadows! You can’t see that at night! No sir. Not even on a starry night. 😛

Swatchy Time Top Row!

Swatchy Time Bottom Row!

Avon True Color 8-in-1 Eyeshadow Palette Starry Nights.jpg

Avon True Color 8-in-1 Eyeshadow Palette Starry Nights

It’s not a spectacular palette, but it’s not horrible. It’s kind of mediocre. The shadows actually remind me of Revlon’s drugstore offerings, because I just tested a couple of those last week. No, actually I take that back. These are a bit better. Man, Revlon makes eyeshadows that kind of …well..suck? But that’s another story!

Most of the shadows in Avon True Color 8-in-1 Eyeshadow Palette Starry Nights are matte based, with various degrees of glitter dispersed throughout. I really like that there are some mattes, but I do wish that there was one or two with a sheen to them or even a metallic, because then the palette would have been loads better. The whole premise of the Avon True Color 8-in-1 Eyeshadow Palette Starry Nights(and the other two as well) is that this one palette can take you from day to night. Now, if you go for that sort of thing, I guess so. Although, I think this palette is better suited for evening wear if you subscribe to those rules. Me? I got no rules, so the look below is how I’d wear the palette-day or night!

Avon True Color 8-in-1 Eyeshadow Palette Starry Nights.jpg

Avon True Color 8-in-1 Eyeshadow Palette Starry Nights

I used the brown shade all over my lid, and then used the grey shade in my crease, with the dark navy shade also in the outer v. I used the matte lilac shade on my bottom lash line, and used a navy eyeliner to line my water line.

Avon True Color 8-in-1 Eyeshadow Palette Starry Nights.jpg

Avon True Color 8-in-1 Eyeshadow Palette Starry Nights

Avon True Color 8-in-1 Eyeshadow Palette Starry Nights makes a decent smoky eye with a navy twist. I love navy smoky eyes, and this palette delivers a pretty easy and wearable version. You do need to use an eye primer though, that’s for sure. And I think if I had used a stickier one like a MAC paint pot, I would have got better pigmentation out of the shadows. It’s a workable palette, if you’re willing to put the effort in. And it’s also good for those who like their shadows on the sheerer side. You know, like some Bobbi Brown shadows. THAT’S what this palette reminds me of! YES. It’s like some Bobbi Brown eyeshadows! Took me long enough, hey?

I can’t say if the other two palettes are better or not, as I don’t have them. I might try to get my hands on them to see if they are, especially that neutral palette. Shades of browns and taupes are usually much better in quality across the board for any brand.

You can order the Avon True Color 8-in-1 Eyeshadow Palette Starry Nights or the other two right now on www.Avon.ca.

What’s your favourite eye shadow shade for a smoky eye? I think navy looks really chic!
