Wet N Wild Fergie Shimmer Palette in Rose Champagne Glow

Hey everyone today I have a post on the Wet N Wild Fergie Shimmer Palette in Rose Champagne Glow. I have always been a huge fan of Wet N Wild so I finally picked up this shimmer palette to try since it was super affordable. There are 3 different shades part of the permanent collection and this one was the one that really caught my eye the most. 

A shimmer palette is a product that is supposed to give a light tint, or a bronze complexion on your skin. Since this was the lightest shade, this one gives a nice glow to your skin with the shimmery pearl finish. The way this product is made, it can be worn both wet and dry. 

I found this to be a great highlighter for my skin tone. It is way too shimmery for me to wear as a blush, but it was perfect to highlight my face. The color when blended is a beautiful light beige color with a hint of pink. The texture was a little stiff when I stuck my finger in it, but worked well when applied used a brush. It did have really beautiful color pay off and I can't wait to start using this in my everyday face routine. The only negative thing I would have to say is that the packaging is pretty bulky. It is huge and does take up a lot of room in my collection, but I think its worth it.

You can purchase this product here for only $5.99, which a lot of times you can get the product 25% off or even 40% during the Walgreens sales.

LORAC Nude Skinny Palette Swatches & Review

Hey everyone I am so excited to be doing a review on this new Limited Edition palette by LORAC. It was released during the Nordstrom sale, which it sold out pretty quickly, but Zappos had it up on there site so I was able to snag it before it was sold out on there. When I see a $15 palette, I literally could not pass it up. And since it was a nude palette of course I just had to get it. 

So this palette comes with 7 different colors and comes in a sleek tan packaging with reptile detail on it. The eyeshadows themselves did not come with names. I love the sleek packaging because it doesn't take up a lot of space so it makes it perfect for traveling. 

Going from right to left with have a nice matte cream color, then we have a shimmery golden brown which I am in love with. Next to that we have a matte copper brown shade and a dark brown that is matte as well. Next to that is a beautiful shimmery copper color, then a dark shimmery green shade and lastly there is a matte dark dark brown, almost boarder line black. 

All of the shades were very pigmented and have amazing texture to them. I love LORAC shadows because they have a great buttery texture and do not look chalky at all. In these photos I did not use primer, but with primer I could imagine these shades would pop even more. My favorite shades would have to be the matte shades.

Overall I am very impressed with this palette. For $15.00 you really can't beat the price. Sadly, it is sold out but I did look on Ebay and people are selling it for almost double the price. But to me $30 still isn't bad for a very beautiful palette. I know I will be using this palette a lot in the fall time because the copper colors are just amazing.
