Wet n Wild Limited Edition "Nude Awakening", "Going In The Wild",& "Vanity" palettes

Hi friends!

Hope you all are well, in Spring of this year Wet n Wild released 2 Limited Edition palettes; a deeper neutral version called Nude Awakening and a neutral with cooler tones. Both palettes have shadows that are universal, smooth, & buttery just like most other Wet n Wild products and the price tag of $4.99 is perfect for anyone whether you're on a beauty budget or not. The Nude Awakening palette has several dupes from the original Urban Decay Naked palette.  My favorite budget blogger Nouveau Cheap has swatches, comparisons, & dupes beautifully displayed on her blog so I would definitely recommend going over there and checking her post out.

Starting October 1st (tomorrow) I will be having a Giveaway to win 1 Wet n Wild "Nude Awakening" palette here on my blog.  The giveaway will run until October 31st and there will be multiple ways to enter.  I will be running it through Rafflecopter again since I had such a great experience with them last time. Make sure you check back for that because I know how hard these palettes have been hard to find and I just want to give someone the chance to win it.

Ipsy Bag September 2013 "Classic Beauty"

Hi guys!

Today I have my September Ipsy bag for you, the theme this month is: "Classic Beauty" & I guess that meant basic beauty.  It included every day things that you may need in your beauty routine. I was most excited about the eyeliner and eyebrow pencil, I don't currently use an eyebrow pencil but have heard it can change your whole face.  Mostly everyone uses the Anastasia brow wiz but I'm not quite ready to take the $21 plunge for something I don't use everyday. Eyeliner is pretty simple on the other hand, it either works in the water line or doesn't so that should be pretty easy to test out. Pictures and swatches are below, & as usual; Enjoy!

My bag this month:
Victoria Jackson Taupe Brow Pencil
J. Cat Fantabulous Lipstick "Honeycrisp"
Starlooks Obsidian Kohl Eye Pencil
NYX Single Eye Shadow "Purple"
Elizabeth Mott It's So Big Volumizing Mascara

Sign up for Ipsy here, it's only $10 a month & I've always had the best experience with them and their products.

I really was hoping to get the Butter London polish in my bag this month but didn't, were there any items that weren't chosen for you that you really wanted to get your hands on?

Sonia Kashuk Eye On Neutral & Eye On Neutral Shimmer Palette's

Today I have swatches and comparisons of 2 of my favorite eyeshadow palettes.  It's not secret that I am a complete sucker when it comes to Neutral palettes, I'm a creature of habit & love simple eye looks. If a neutral palette comes out I won't even look at my other palettes before I buy it, there is absolutely no reasoning with myself especially if it contains shimmer or sheen shadows.  So when Sonia Kashuk came out with a new Neutral Shimmer palette, it wasn't a matter of "if" only a matter of "when" I would be picking this up. I already owned the Eye on Neutral palette for over a year and love everything about it; the quality, price, & color selection are amazing! The original EON palette contains 12 matte neutral shadows while the EONS palette has 12 shimmer shadows(not to be confused with the SK glitter quads). The new palette has slimmer packaging and is a great accent addition to the original completely matte palette and I can see myself using these all year in every season and leaving behind my other palettes just for how simple they are to use. The other palettes I own (Naked, Naked2, Lorac Pro, Nude Tude, Lorac Unzipped, Stila In the know) are equally as great but these palettes have the most amazing price point at just $19.99 a piece! Swatches & pictures to follow, Enjoy!
