So I've been following Morphe Brushes on Instagram for over a year now but i've never made a purchase from them. I think I started following them because they were sponsoring a contest at some point in time and to earn an extra entry you followed their instagram page. I remember some posts at the end of december about a palette that was coming out that was hand picked by a girl named Jacyln Hill. I had no idea to be honest who she was. I was like who is this person and what's the big hoopla over this palette. lol I remember just reading comments about people being mad because they couldn't get on the site and then when they did it was sold out. I guess someone was hacking their site at the time of the launch. Well during the next week I was looking up swatches for makeup geek shadows because I was wanting to buy some and that is how i found Jaclyn hill's blog/yt channel. It was watching her videos the first week of January that i found out what her palette was all about. I had actually been wanting some warmer colors since all my shadows are more brighter shades and this seemed like a good one for me to get for those brown/cranberry shades i was looking for. Alas though when i went to purchase it from their site they hadn't restocked it yet but then my hubby reminded me that he was working a beauty show at the end of january in Long Beach. I immediately checked the website for the show and found that morphe brushes was going to be there and only a few booths over. Score!! So I had him pick it up for me while he was there. :)
I forgot to take pictures of the box when i first got it so now there is icky water spots/fingerprints on it...
These shadows are sooo amazingly pigmented. I can't believe individually these only cost $2.00 each, because that is such a good deal. The palette retails for $27.99 which makes them a $1.00 a piece.
I think the last row is my favorite. :)
ES4 - OFF WHITE (FROST)
ES6 - SOFT GOLDEN PEACHY BROWN (MATTE)
ES76 - BEIGE CHAMPAGNE (SHIMMER)

I've been using a couple of the first ones as an inner corner highlight.

ES13 - SOFT GOLD-PEACH W/PEARL (SATIN)
ES62 - MUTED TAUPE BROWN (MATTE)

ES20 - INTENSE BROWN/GOLD W/SHIMMER (FROST)
ES47 - GOLDEN APRICOT (SHIMMER)
ES66 - VIBRANT CORAL (MATTE)
Favorites: I love both oranges. I think the first shade is pretty and can't wait to figure out a look to use it. I've been using the browns for my crease area.
ES33 - SOFT BABY PINK (PEARL)
ES68 - METALLIC RASPBERRY (SHIMMER)
ES16 - SOFT MUTED ROSY BROWN (SATIN)
ES15 - GOLDEN ORANGE BROWN (MATTE)
ES61 - LIGHT GOLDEN BROWN (MATTE)
ES24 - INTENSE REDDISH BROWN (MATTE)

Favorites: Loving the pinks. I've been using 33 and mixing with 66 to make a shiny peachy color for my lids and then pairing it with a couple of the browns.

ES71 - DEEP MAROON RED (MATTE)
ES19 - INTENSE GREEN W/SHIMMER (LUSTRE)
Favorites: I love all of them, especially the purples and the pink shade.
I labeled each shadow with the corresponding individual shadow number. </p>
Thoughts: I love this palette. For the most part the shadows are super pigmented and the ones that aren't can be built up. h colors I have used so far blend easily without much trouble wich is also a plus. I work in the stock room and coming home after 8 to 9 hours working my shadows look pretty good with minor fading in the crease area. I highly recommend this palette if you were looking for some warm shades and some pops of color as well. I can see myself using this palette for everyday looks. I'm also interested in trying out some of their brushes. Anybody have any recommendations??<p>Editing Notes: All the swatches were dry swatches. I didn't use any primer or anything like that. I just swatched each shadow with my fingers.

I thought these were very pigmented and since I was given a coupon for 65% off, I think i'm going to purchase some more. I've yet to play with these just yet though. I have some ideas for them though. I've only had them about a week so far. :) I noticed some of these can stain like Black Sapphire and Neptune Star. I also think Orchid could be a little more pigmented. I think it might be because its a matte esque shade and thats why it was harder to swatch then the others. You can make a purchase at their etsy shop Star Crushed Minerals. They are still having their spring sale, so check them out. :)

Its a clear base with red bar glitter, black and red hexagon glitter, and tiny black speckled glitter.
I found when applying it that it can be a litte chunky. It works better as a glitter top coat then wearing it alone. The look reminded me of marble countertops or tiles. I really like the look of it though.
I decided to try it over some colors. I decided to do a quick Easter Egg Look.
I like it over Zoya Blu and Haute Nails Pink Panther(this didn't come with a name on the bottle) the most.
I used the Color Club Top coat and it dried really fast.
Heres a more close up picture. </p> <p>Thoughts on Polish: I actually really liked this polish. You only need one coat when you use it as a glitter top coat. I found it hard to layer using it alone. It would come out really chunky and I didn't like it at all.
Price: $2.95 at Wal-mart

<strong><span style="font-size: large;">For awhile now i have noticed the name Darling Girl Cosmetics throughout the beauty world reading blogs, facebook beauty pages, etc... Wasn't til I saw a look XoXo Alexis Leigh posted a month ago that I discovered what amazing colors they have. I had seen a few looks here and there using some of their products but this one had sparkly duochrome shades used in it. I was immediately mesmerized by them. I couldnt click on their website fast enough.
</span><span style="font-size: large;">Once I got there and started looking through the eye colors with my jaw dropping with every click, I knew I had to make an order. I decided to buy a few jars and also ordered a review kit which was on sale for a $1.00 (squeal!!). I thought that deal was super awesome for getting to try out 5 different products. I was going to order one of the lipglosses that looked awesome but they were sadly all sold out. I like that this site has a wishlist, so I can goto it when I want to order something and pick out from the beauties I had already discovered. I am on my 11th page.
Such cute wrapping!! I love the logo!!
This was the review kit I got. I chose 5 shadow samples and they came in the normal sample baggies. I believe each has an 1/8 of a tsp.
*Sweet Savage: Matte Midtone carnation pink
*Rich Gurl: A sky blue thats on the periwinkle side with a green duochrome. Its very sparkly!!
*Persuasion: Medium lavender base with gold shift and turquoise sparkles.
*Unicorn: A shimmery irridescent silvery white but when applied its a irridescent pale pink, maybe even a little purplish with turquoise sparkles. This was my favorite color I recieved. I already went through the sample and had to order a jar of it. :)
*Obviously a Wig: Magenta with a blue/purple duochrome. I love this color!! I think it makes an awesome lip gloss color!!

*Bronze Dawn: Ruddy pinky mauve base with strong gold sheen
*Leaping Lizards: <span>medium grey with golden green sheen that shifts to a grey with red/violet sheen
Thoughts: I love all these colors!! They are very sparkly. I find they work well with the glitter glue that I bought when i ordered from them a 2nd time. With all shadows I would say use a primer. These seemed to last a long time and are vibrant. I work in a stock room that only has a couple fans and no ac. I live in phx, so to give you a rough idea of the weather where I am at. I come home and my makeup has very minor creasing if at all. There can be a little fallout but not too bad. I love these and highly recommend their shadows. I can't wait to order more. I'm waiting til Sept. 6th to order some Halloween Shades from the Oh! The Horror Collection. :) I need to swatch these colors with DG glitter glue and will update this post with a pic.

I went to Las Vegas last weekend for the first time. I remembered that there was a Inglot store somewhere there. I decided to find it and found it in the Caesar's Palace (my favorite casino!!) Forum Shops. I just had to start from one end to the other to find it. My hubby said he waited an hour for me to be done inside the store, but I dont think I was in there for that long. lol
I took a quick picture when I was leaving. I found myself almost ordering stuff from them at their online website since I first heard about them. I was hesistant since I hadnt seen their products in person. Its hard to tell how big the items are and how I will like the finishes/etc. without seeing them firsthand. I ended up buying 6 shadows, 1 pigment, and 1 eye liner. It was hard to pick out colors. I would have bought the empty palette but too expensive. Ill look on ebay or amazon for one I can use.
I found the shadows to be a pretty decent size. They only cost $6 each. The pigment was $14.00 and the eyeliner was $12.00.
