Sephora Color Festival Blockbuster Palette

Heyyyy Makeup Lovers!!!!!!
I’m not sure if I have ever written a review for any of the blockbuster palettes that I’ve gotten in the past, I think what happens is that I get so excited to see a colorful palette of eye shadows, lips glosses, blushes, eyeliners, and so on that I just go right into making awesome and beautiful looks to share with you girls! I should be doing reviews on them because every year Sephora creates a whole new different design for the holiday season. One year they made a small square shape palette that grew into the most beautiful palette with makeup for days. It's funny how mad I was at first because it really does look like a small square when it was close, it was a really good product but the square (packaging) was cheap. It broke within the first few months that I had it. Eye shadows broke and lip glosses got dirty that I had to throw it always. :(
Actually all two of my Blockbusters have broken on me but to be fair to Sephora I had drop both of them, but the very first one I had didn't break as bad as the second one. Honestly I don't think they are meant to last long since Sephora makes a new Palette every year, in my defense eye shadows and blushes are good for two years before you have to throw it out but what are you going to do if they don’t have any package to protect them. I usually ask my mom to get me a Blockbuster for Christmas but I hadn’t for the past two years since I was drowning in makeup especially with eye shadows. I wanted to ask for one for this Christmas because all of my eye shadow palettes are about to expire but for some reason I just didn’t. That’s why I was so surprised and super excited that my brother and his wife got me the Color Festival Blockbuster Palette with 130 colors in it. This year Blockbuster has…
72 eye shadows
28 lip glosses
8 blush
18 cream eyeliners
4 two-in-one creams for cheeks and lips
2 mirrors
6 makeup tutorials cards
And it’s in a shape of a bow, I’m not sure if that’s that shape Sephora is going with but that’s what I think what it looks like.

I love how you can do almost any look with these beautiful eye shadows. The matte eye shadows are soft to the tough and blend really well. Some of them are more pigmented then others, but all you need to do is just add more layers of eye shadows or use a white cream base. The shimmer eye shadows are a hit and miss, I have some that apply on wonderful and I have others that I have to keep added on eye shadow until I am happy with it. Bronze and gold eye shadows are mostly hits in my book. Well most of the eye shadows are hits but I feel like you always have to have a few bad eggs in a batch. There’s also a few eye shadows that have glitter in them and most of them are pigmented and very bendable, there are at least two that are kind of chucky, but I don't mind those because I just use my fingers to dab them on to my lids to add an extra spackle to my looks!
Don’t all these eye shadows make you happy!!?

Funny story I almost forgot to post this rainbow of eyeliners!! I will never ever get bored of eyeliner that’s for sure. These are so creamy and very easy to apply on.

Love these lip glosses they are pigmented, beautiful, and you can create so many beautiful lip looks or just pick one of the colors to go with your eye shadows. The pink and purple side is my favorite. I will always be a pink lip girl!

The blushes are also my favorite part of the palette! Not only do they blend very easy into the skin they are also the perfect pigment in my opinion. They are pigmented but not to pigmented that I look like I have UN naturally pink cheeks!
I hope you girls really love this review!
Also if you live in MA stay safe and warm it’s a crazy one out there!!
Have a good day or night!!
Much love from your crazy makeup lover!!

Makeup Look of the Day: Just a Simple Sexy Look!

Heyyyy Makeup Lovers!!!!
O how I miss blogging my life away, there’s always something to do that gets in the way of my blogging. Well no worries I am here with a look that almost everyone will love. I was going out on Friday with my fiancĂ© I wanted a look that was simple to do that made me look and feel pretty. Do you ever have those days when you just feel tried and run down that you feel ugly well I was having one of those days. So I thought why not a create look that will make me feel pretty and sexy!

If you want to know how to get this Just a Simple Sexy Look then please read on!!!
For the eyes :
After priming my eyelids I added on a pretty pale shimmer gold eye shadow onto the inner corners of my eyes and up to the center of my eyelids. I left the outer corners blank so I can add another eye shadow.
I then added a matte white onto my tear ducts and on my brow bones for that nice highlight, but I ended up putting a light yellow gold eye shadow onto my tear ducts instead.
I applied a taupe eye shadow lightly into my crease and I blended it out with my blending brush.
I then added a matte brown shadow onto the outer corners of my eyes and underneath the outer corner of my lower lash lines
I then added the pale gold eye shadow onto the inner corners of my lower lash lines. Then I smudge both of the colors with a smudge brush.
I then kept going back and forth applying both the brown and pale gold eye shadow for a few times before blending the colors together.
To complete my eyes I applied on brown cream eyeliner and then to top them off I added false eyelashes to make my eyes pop more.
For the face :
After applying on my foundation and powder I added a little bronzer to my temples, under my cheek bones, and onto my jaw lines just to add a little color to my winter white skin.
I just went with a light peach color blush for my cheeks and then added on some highlighter onto my cheeks bones to give me a nice glow.
I also put the highlighter onto the bridge of my nose and above my eyebrows.
For the lips:
I just applied on a pretty pink lip gloss for a pop of color.
I hope you girls love this look as much as I do. It’s simple to do but it will make you look amazing. :)
Have a good day or night!!!
Much love from your crazy makeup lover!!!

Happy New Year!

Heyyy Makeup Lovers!!!!
I hope everyone had an awesome Christmas and New Year’s, I know I did. It was really busy though with all the baking for Christmas and then shopping and planning a New Year’s Eve party at my house. Even though it was a lot of cleaning before and after my party I’m glad I had one with my friends and family, it was so much fun. I am so excited that it is 2015 not only because it’s a new year with a fresh start but... I'm getting married this year!!! It's funny how fast my wedding date is coming up because when we picked the date I had over 2 years to plan now it’s only 10 month! I know that’s still a while but it’s a whole lot closer than two years!!
I know I promise a New Year’s Eve party look for you girls but I didn't post one, I want to say I'm very sorry but I ended up having no time to post any. It was just a busy time last week and I thought I had so many hours in a day to do everything, but I didn't.
To make up for it I have two fun makeup looks to post this week!!! I hope you girls like them!!
I also have funny pictures of my cats trying to help us wrap presents!

What are your plans for 2015? or resolutions?
I'll see you girls in my next post!!
Have a good day or night!!
Much love from your crazy makeup lover!!
