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

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”.

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.

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.

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.

ColourPop?

What was I thinking?

Colourpop

I’m not sure I knew what I was getting myself into when I went onto the Colourpop website and start snooping around.  I mean, where is all my self-control when it comes to just looking around a colorful website?  I knew I was in trouble when I clicked on this cute little quad called “Rebound”.  What sold me was the matte colors, gorgeous right?

  I received my Colourpop order in the mail a couple of weeks ago and I have been preoccupied with everyday life to even give them a second thought or even give them a swatch.  I have not worn them yet, I like the shades and I like the weird texture.  Not used to my eyeshadows having this spongy type feel to them but “meehh”, I might as well check them out.

Well I just wanted to come on my blog and post my pretties and see what you all think of them.  I will definitely give these darlings a whirl tomorrow!  Anyone out there enjoying them or really dislike them.. let me know in the comment section.  To each their own.

Until next time, think positive and positive will always be around!
