Does anyone else get super excited when they find new drug store items that you love? I feel like when it comes to drug store eyeshadows they can be a hit or miss. And when it comes to ELF eyeshadows, I haven't always been a huge fan but for the price, they do have some awesome eyeshadows. I must say though, these new Chromatic Eyeshadow Palettes are seriously amazing. 

There is two different palettes you can choose from. Posh Peacock is more of a cool toned earthy palette and Bird of Paradise is a very beautiful warm palette.  Each palette comes with 7 different eyeshadows. There is a mix of formulas in mattes to metals. It also comes with a duo ended brush. One side is a crease brush and the other side is an all over eyeshadow brush. I am usually not a fan of brushes that come in palettes, but I found this one to be pretty decent. 

Lets go over the Bird of Paradise palette first. 
  • The first shade in this palette is a really pretty shimmery yellow. 
  • The second shade is a matte orange, which I love!!
  • The third shade is a matte burnt orange shade. 
  • Fourth is a shimmery rusty/maroon shade. 
  • Fifth is a matte maroon shade.
  • The sixth shade is a light rusty matte purple.
  • Lastly is a light iridescent purple. 
Most of the shades performed really well. A couple were a little bit drying but the rest applied and blended out really nicely. Scroll down for swatches and also information on the Posh Peacock palette!

The Posh Peacock palette is my favorite of the two. There has been so many warm palettes released that I just wasn't super excited for the Bird of Paradise. But this palette here is seriously so stunning and we do not have too many palettes like this out right now!
  • The first shade is a beautiful shimmery champagne color.
  • Second is a matte taupe shade.
  • Third is a beautiful shimmery green. 
  • The next shade is a dark green with a hint of shimmer.
  • The fifth shade is a beautiful matte teal.
  • Next is a deep brown shade.
  • And lastly is a stunning baby blue.
All of the shades in this palette performed perfectly. I like this palette a lot better then the Bird of Paradise. So if you want to get one of the palettes, I would recommend this one! 

These palettes retail for $12.00 and can be purchased from www.elfcosmetics.com

Eylure Vegas Nay Brow & Shadow Pro Palette Swatches and Review

Happy May everyone! I honestly can't believe we are already in a new month. I feel like 2018 has been flying by already. And what's even crazier is that my daughter will be turning 1 on Sunday! I honestly can't even believe it! I am hoping May brings everyone joy as we get closer and closer to Summer! 

To start off the beginning of the month I wanted to do a review on the Eylure Vegas Nay Brow & Shadow Pro Palette. I was sent this through Eylure and Octoly. Which if you haven't heard of Octoly before you should totally sign up! It is a great website that connects you with a lot of different brands and you can get a lot of stuff sent to you to review on Instagram. This post isn't sponsored, but I just love using Octoly, so if you'd like to sign up you can click here or any bold Octoly word will bring you to the signup page!  So I just wanted to share that with you all really quick. 

Moving back onto the palette. This is a eyeshadow and brow palette, so its going to be great for traveling. This palette comes with 9 different shades and a wax to set your brows. The palette also comes with a brush that helps blend the shadow into your brow as well as a spooly to brush through your brows. Even though this is a eyeshadow palette too, I personally prefer to use it just for my brows. I like mixing the two darkest shades and find it matches my brows perfectly. 

Lets go over the shades that come in this palette:
  • English Clay
  • Gold Coast
  • Tuscan Copper 
  • Red Velvet
  • Cappuccino 
  • Warm Truffle
  • Hot Chestnut
  • Roasted Coffee
  • Midnight
For my brows I like to use a mix of Midnight and Hot Chestnut. I feel like those two shades work amazing with my black hair. 

I find that this palette should work with all hair types. It is super easy to mix a few shades together in case you need something a little darker or lighter. As for using this palette for eyeshadows, I would prefer to use other palettes. I do like some of the shades for a transition color, but I can't really create the look I want with just these shades. And I do find the shades just a little chalky, which works fine with my brows and fine if I am just using the shades as a transition on my eyes. I do find that the colors do blend out super easy as well. 

I made sure to include some up close swatches for you just so you can see the colors from a far but also up close. One thing I love about Eylure is that it is sold at Ulta and I find them to be very affordable. Right now they currently have buy one get one 50% at Ulta.com. This palette does retail for $19.99.
