❤ wet n wild Comfort Zone Palette Swatches

This wet n wild palette is pretty impressive for what a drug store eyeshadow's reputation holds. These colors are super pigmented and feel creamy and are just filled with tons of beautiful colors. This palette does remind me of the Kat Von D palette, Ludwig. So pretty and definitely a new fave. Below are some swatches from this palette. I may to a comparison video against the Kat Von D palette. And we will see which one really holds up against all the important aspects of an eyeshadow palette. I hope this helps when purchasing wet n wild.

❥ Random Series: Look #2 with NYX COSMETICS

Random look #2. Eyeshadows I used are Jazzy Bronze, Extreme Apricot, Hollywood and Barely There all by NYX Cosmetics. So if you haven't seen look #1 I basically pick shadows at random and I have to create a look from them. Barely there I chose while the other 3 were random and this is the look I came up with. Watch the video for instruction on shadow placement. The photos make the Extreme Apricot appear more of a pink when its actually a bright orange.

❤ Kat Von D Truth Palette Swatches

Like always I say this. Huge Kat Von D fan and I love her makeup! This palette is amazing. I'm not that ecstatic about the cream shadow, but it works alright for a base. Its a really pretty color, I wish it was an actual eyeshadow though. I love the soft neutral in this palette and the deep burgundy is a great smoky color. Very intense with great pigmentation. They're easy to blend. I love the quality of her eye shadows. I'm never disappointed.

❤ November Haul

This is a collective of items I've gotten in the last month or so. I titled this November Haul since I introducing it in November, not particulary because I got it all in November. I hope you guys enjoy and maybe get some ideas for the upcoming holiday season.




Anyway, below are photos of some items I've shown in the video. Here is the Wet N Wild eyebrow kit.



Kat Von D is my super favorite. I got three palettes, True Love, Angeles and Metal Orchestra. I will be doing swatch videos for these palettes in the near future.



Avon is a pretty decent brand, but not my go to for eyeshadows. They're nice and have an ok application, but to get a great color payoff you gotta work with it a bit.


Hot Topic eyeshadows look amazing and some are. So I got four fabulous colors, bright purple, an intense blue, neon green and a bright pink. You can see the swatches and how amazing the first three are. But when you see the pink, the swatch is quite pathetic. I even tried applying 3 coats and that's as bright as it got. Very sad and I was upset about it. Not too upset since this shadow was only 3 bucks but still!

Neon green so pretty!


The purple is so intense. I love how vibrant this is.


The blue is beautiful! Will definitely give any eye color a pop.


This pink is pathetic! I am so disappointed with the swatch. Not sure if I just got a bad or old one but it has no pigmentation at all.



Here are the 4 elf palettes I got and I love them. I love elf. I think they do produce a lot of great quality make up.






I love glitter but it can be very messy.

❤ Rainbow Eyes

Bright rainbow eyeshadow. I used Inglot colors for this look. I chose the color pattern because I wanted to use the deep purple to smoke out the eye.

❤ Halloween Colors Makeup

I wanted to combine Halloween colors, so I created this really simple look using orange, a few shades of green and purple with a dark purple. I know some people don't care to even dress up for Halloween but still want to be festive so this look may be right for you. I hope you all enjoy =)

♠ HALLOWEEN - FREDDY KRUEGER MAKEUP

So this is what I decided to be for Halloween, well for my friends' party the weekend before because I was also the devil the weekend prior. So this was my first time ever using liquid latex and it was easier to use then I expected. I also used all e.l.f. shadows for this look. Mainly the 100 eyeshadow palette. Check out my video for some easy to do steps. I'm really happy with the outcome and if I'd known how easy it was to use the liquid latex I most likely would have done most my face. I hope you like this =)

♠ HALLOWEEN - DEVIL MAKEUP

Alright SOOOO I was a Devil for my brother and sister-in-laws Halloween party. My costume was real simple, it consisted of the headband with the two horns, a bow tie which was kinda tight and I didn't care for and a tail that you just clip onto your clothes. I also bought a pitchfork to kinda complete the whole look. So this is the makeup I actually wore to the party. Products I used were mostly Inglot eyeshadows and some NYX. I hope you guys like this look and give it a try too.

❤ Jesse's Girl Palettes Swatches

I was super stoked to try out Jesse's Girl new eyeshadow palettes. There are four in the collection and each one has nine eyeshadows. They are smaller than the average palette, but the average palette price ranges from 30-60 bucks. You can find these palettes at Rite Aid or at Jesse's Girl Cosmetics DOT com for only $3.99! I think that's a steal! The pigmentation of these shadows were really impressive and I really like the color combos. I don't have much to complain about with these other than it really bothers me that the two shadows on each end are not the same size as the rest and that's only because of the shape and size of the palette itself. I know its a silly thing cause the difference is like .01 oz but still I want that .01 oz! I guess I'm just anal. I've messed around with all of them and my fave is the green palette. I got a lot of compliments when I wear these colors too. They kinda remind of nature, there's lots of greens and browns like trees in the forest and the blue reminds me of the sky above those trees. Very beautiful palette. Each one includes a double sided sponge tip brush which I'm a huge fan of and I like that its a long brush so its much easier to use. I think its a great buy and anyone should try them all... or at least one! Check out the awesome swatches below.
