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!!
