Is This Your Fall Palette?

Morphe-Fall-Into-Frost-Eye-Shadow-Palette
I admit that I’m wary of these huge generic-looking looks-like-it-was-bought-as-the-99cent-store eye shadow palettes like this one shown here. But I did find a small, “woooow,” slip outta my mouth when I opened it!

I mean the name, Fall Into Frost Palette (#35F), is just so fitting for right now, not to mention the colors inside, they all just whisper fall. This one comes to us from MORPHE BRUSHES and it’s my first try of the brand ever.

This 9” x 6” palette contains 7 new matte shades and 28 metallics, so 35 colors in all and for $22.99 @ morphebrushes.com. That’s 66 cents a shade! Count me in. And check out the quality of the shadows on my fingers! I guess it really is true that we mostly pay for packaging when buying a product these days as I can think of a few brands off the top of my head where the quality doesn't meet these and theirs usually cost double. 

What look would you create with this palette? Let me know in the comments!

Is This Your Holy Grail Liner?

This MAYBELLINE Master Precise Curvy Liquid Liner in Black ($7.99 @ ulta.com, drugstore.com) seems to be residing between a liquid liner and a pencil liner. It’s part of their fall collection and I don’t think this color could be any blacker!

This is probably the closest to an overall Sharpie-look of an eye liner I’ve ever come across – the liner tip and pen-like case and even the color on the skin. And what I like about this most is that I can choose from a thin or thick line across the lid.

And this didn’t bleed at all, which is a very important trait to me, and lasted an average of 8 hours before starting to wear off.

Some may find this one a tad difficult to wield as the tip is rounded instead of pointed, which I mentioned above. This works fine for me but I found that I had to draw a medium to thick line by default because of the shape, so if you’re a novice, you may not want to start with this one.

I’m Showing #ShoeLove to #Amopé This Season

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Amopé™. The opinions, photos and text are all mine.

I officially tucked my flip-flops away this past weekend and will be pulling out more of my actual shoes now that we are on fall's doorstep. And for me, with actual shoes comes the need for foot support. I sometimes feel like I'm the only one on the planet who has an actual shoe box full of full support products! Shoe too big? I have something for it. Shoe rubbing on a toe? I have something for it. And when I'm out shopping for new shoes I keep the contents of what's inside this box at the back of my brain and will even buy ½ size up to accommodate, if I think I'm going to need something extra inside my shoe.
