- Try It Tuesday: Smoky Palette -


I totally meant to purchase a matte eyeshadow palette during my last e.l.f. haul, but wound up accidentally purchasing my favorite 'prism palette' again (which I reviewed here). I guess I subconsciously knew I had been overusing this sparkly palette and needed to restock ;) On a whim, I tossed this smokey palette from Forever 21 into my cart. Although it's not totally matte, it was just what I was looking for!

What I like - the color selection is my fave - so many to choose from, surprising all day wear, very affordable, + I love the tiny pencil eyeliner included.

What I don't like - this eyeshadow doesn't go on as pigmented as I would like, buuuuut that is the only downside for me.

Anyone else a smokey eye fan? xx

- Try It Tuesday: e.l.f. Illuminating Face Primer -


On my last e.l.f. shopping haul I was lucky enough to get a few freebies! I don't normally use face primer because, to be honest, I usually forget. I used this e.l.f. Studio Illuminating Face Primer on a whim over the weekend and here's what I thought:

What I like - it reduced redness + did actually make my foundation stay longer.

What I don't like - so, it's super glittery...which freaked me out at first, but if you're into a lot of glow then this product is for you. I guess that's what they meant by illuminating ;)

Has anyone else tried a sparkly primer? xx
