Review: Make Up For Ever Artist Palette Volume 1

Standard

I love the formula of the Make Up For Ever Artist shadows. They’re smooth, ultra creamy and oh-so-pigmented. The metallic finish ones are my absolute favourite, but they’re all good. I’ve been waiting for an opportunity to try a few more of these shadows, and opportunity knocked in the form of a really economical palette!* If you don’t fancy buying a bunch of singles, MUFE has come out with a couple of palettes, one neutral and one bright. I got the neutral one.

Review: Urban Decay On the Run Palette

Standard

I’m pretty sure when the jailer man and sailor Sam were searching everyone, they were looking for this:

The “On the Run” palette from Urban Decay. I was lucky enough to receive this as a birthday gift from my sister (thanks Nicole!), but I would gladly fork over my hard-earned dollars for it if I hadn’t. I’ve been using this over the past few days and really enjoying it. It’s perfect for those rushed, barely coherent mornings before work.
