November 27, 2013

I recently received the Holiday Smokey Eye Palette from Studio Gear along with a great coupon code for all of my lovely readers!

The palette comes with 4 eyeshadow shades along with a beautiful blush, and a guide to help you create the perfect smokey eye look–great for date night or a night out with your friends!

The palette is made out of sturdy, thick cardboard material. The eyeshadow and blush pans are a decent size, overall, the size of the palette is great for travel…the only downside, it doesn’t include a mirror; but I normally carry a handheld mirror in my bag.

All 4 of the eyeshadows have a shimmery finish to them, but there are no chunks of glitter.

Overall, I’d say this is a good palette for a night out look, the colors are pigmented and they have a nice shimmer to them. As most shimmery shades, they do have some fall out, just make sure you tap off the excess off your brush. The blush is a gorgeous peachy pink shade, it has a nice sheen to it! I’m very pleased with this little palette and I’m sure this will be my go-to for dark smokey eyes!

Here is a look I created!

Same look, different lip combos.

For the nude lip I used Rimmel’s Nude Delight and Benefit’s Ultra Plush Lipgloss Sugarbomb

For the berry lip I used Jordana’s Lip Liner in Cabarnet and Revlon Lip Butter in Raspberry Pie

♥ I had some errands to run after I finished this look, I might have gotten some weird stares from people…this is definitely a more night-time appropriate look. 

♥ theBalm Cosmetics is on Hautelook today! I absolutely LOVE theBalm, in case you hadn’t figured that out already…hehe! 

♥ I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! Mwahh!
