Viseart Grande Pro Palette

 

IMG_20171128_165454687Absolutely Amazing!

My most recent addition to my eyeshadow palette collection is my Viseart Grand Pro.  I purchased my palette through the Muse Beauty Pro website and even participated in their pre-launch ordering about a week prior to it being launched.  This palette has 30 gorgeous, blend into each other, pigmented shades.  Twenty four of the 30 shades are colors that they pulled from their vault of archived shades and the remaining 6 can be found in existing palettes.  Alfonz of Muse Beauty stated that this palette is a collectors edition, I mean really, how fabulous is that.  It’s like they made a palette specifically for me and every other Viseart collector.

I was under the impression that there would be only 3000 palettes made and be exclusive to Muse Beauty Pro.  However, this is not totally accurate.  Yes, there were a certain number of palettes made and were lauched at Muse Beauty Pro.  From the first 3000 palettes, a number would be hand written in the lower right hand side in gold.  Once these were sold, the remaining palettes would be sold with out a number and be offered at at Muse Beauty Pro and through Beautylish.  My palette was numbered 1707/3000 and was written in the lower right hand corner in gold.

IMG_2149Shortly after receiving my palette, I saw people posting photos of their palette on their Facebook, Instagram and Blogs pages.  However, what I noticed was that their palettes did not have a palette number, curious.  So, I asked a couple people what their palette number was and where they purchased their palette.  They responded back to me saying that their palette did not come with a personalized number and they purchased their palette through Beautylish. Truthfully, I felt a wee bit bummed, as I thought I actually received one of the only 3000 palettes that were launched at Muse Beauty Pro.  This feeling was short lived though and now I’m glad that more palettes were made available to more people.  IMG_2153As of today, the Viseart Grande Pro palette can still be purchased at Muse Beauty Pro and Beautylish.

I watched the interview that Stephanie Nicole did with Anastasia, Viseart and with Alfonz, Muse Beauty Pro and this video was jam-packed with information about their newest release.  One tid bit was that they used shades that came from an archived vault.  The archived vault are shades that did not make any of there previous palettes, interesting.

I am really enjoying this palette and along with my other 4 Viseart palettes is becoming my most used.  You know, knowing what I know now about these wicked palettes, I would have only purchased Viseart, that’s how much confidence I have in Viseart.  They are all I need and sadly, my other palettes are kinda collecting dust.  If anyone out there is still considering purchasing this palette, my advice is to go through Beautylish and take advantage of the 3 easy pay schedule.  Below I have my swatches and done both brush and finger swatches and starred my favorite shades.  Until next time, take care

Disney Minnie Beauty Palette

Purchased and Forgotten…

Disney3

I purchased the Disney Minnie Beauty Palette that was a Sephora Collection Limited Edition a few months back.  I picked it up as soon as it launched and I guess I fell victim to all the hype that it received.  I remember thinking, “Oh my goodness, I have to get my hands on this as soon as I can, being a Limited Edition, I didn’t want to take the chance of missing out.  However, I checked Sephora’s website, just before sitting down to write this post and it was still available and if you are interested in purchasing it, you can still do so.

I was excited when I received it the mail and immediately opened it up, think that I was going to be surprised and would enjoy using the palette.  I swatched all the shades, took some pictures and took it to my vanity.  First off, I it wouldn’t fit where I stored all my eyeshadow palettes, so I end up putting it in the bottom drawer, out of sight and out of mind.  The next day, I pulled it out thinking that I was going to use it and post my look on my facebook, instagram and on snapchat.  However, when I opened it, I just stared at it and closed it up and put it back in the bottom drawer, out of sight and out of mind.

Well, it’s been a couple months now and I still haven’t used it.  I have no interest in it what so ever and have forgotten I have it.  Why did I purchase this palette?   Well, I don’t know.  All I can say is, I fell victim to all the promotion and hype that it received at the time and I just purchased it.  I do not buy all the newly released makeup products because, #1-I can’t afford everything; #2-I don’t like every single product that comes out.

In any event, I have a nice palette that I can depot, use the container as a jewelry box or something like that.  I know my grand daughters will love it and hopefully I will eventually do a look with it.  Has anyone else ever purchased a makeup product because of all the hype and end up not using it?  I really hope I’m not the only one.

Bye for now, take care and keep on keeping on.

Laura Mercier Artist Palette

It’s Back 🙂

LM Palette

In 2013, this palette caught my eye while I was clicking through the Sephora website.  I do believe at that time, it was offered as a limited edition and I thought that the shades were right up my alley.  I have a weakness for holiday palettes and will pick up what appeals to me, however, this palette was blinking bright with lil neon lights saying “pick me pick me”.

LM Eye4

The Laura Mercier Artist palette has twelve shades, 6 matte and 6 with some shimmer, and is encased in a soft faux textured leather compact that is very travel friendly.  My most used shades are called Vanilla Nuts, Fresco, Guava, Plum Smoke and African Violet and have hit pan on a few of these shades.  Hitting pan on any of my eyeshadow palettes is exciting but at the same time nerve raking because of the limited edition status.

LM Eye

This palette is one of my all time favorite palettes because of the way the shades blend  together and there is a good selection of both matte and satin shades.  My favorite combination is using Vanilla Nuts all over my eye lid, Fresco in the crease, a smidge of Plum Smoke & Kir Royal on the outer corner and Guava patted on the lid.  These shades together make a very soft wearable everyday look.

LM Eye1

I don’t know if this palette is to become a permanent item to the Laura Mercier line, but I may purchase a back up just in case.  If I do this, this palette will be the first eyeshadow palette that I will buy twice .

Until Next Time and Happy Sunday.

Some Favorites!

Here are a few products that I have enjoyed using this month.

Can you guess which product has Holy Grail status?

You can leave you guess down in the comment section.

Kat Von D’s Innersteller EyeShadow Palette:  (click here for Sephora details) I love my purples and find that I’m liking the cooler tones, huh, who knew!  The contour shade is “ok”, the eyeshadow shades are really nice and I have been able to come up with some great looks this month.  All in all a good palette.

Too Faced – Soul Mates – Blushing Bronzer – Carrie & Big(click here for Sephora details) This soft bronzer has a tiny hint of a sheen to it, in my opinion, and is amazing used all by itself or swirled with the peach colored blush, now that’s a gorgeous pairing!

Tarte’s Maracuja Oil(click here for Sephora details) This is my second bottle in 6 months for peat sakes.  When I first purchased, I thought that this would be a product that I was just buying because of all the hype.  However, as soon as I started using it, I totally understood all the hype that it was getting.  I have dry to normal skin and during the winter, my skin was absolutely drinking it in.  The result was soooo yummy and soft.  It will be a love for a long long time… 🙂

I have the Tarte Maracuja Bronzing Serum in my Sephora Cart..lol!
