Last week my visit to my local Ulta proved to be a very sweet! Anastasia Beverly Hills came out with The Modern Renaissance Palette a couple weeks ago and I had been holding myself to get this…but then I got the 20% off Ulta Coupon and I just couldn’t I just had to buy this gorgeous Palette with a bunch of warm red tones and warm browns. It has such warm beautiful colors…I already own the Tamanna Palette @dressyourface that is stunning…its one of my top 5 favorites! I will post a pic of the Tamanna Palette for you to see how beautiful the shadows are in it…
Anastasia Modern Renaissance Palette
It retails for $42 has a total of 14 shadows and comes with a dual ended brush. It has a soft pink Velvety packaging and is very pretty. It has a mirror inside which flips all the ways backwards which i appreciate AND the best part is it is a permanent palette! The Shadows are very soft and do kick up a little powder but once you tap off the excess from the brush they work just fine… are very pigmented and blendable.
I saw the Blending spong duo at check out and picked em up…I love love love the beauty blender and the Real Techniques sponge is not too bad either. The duo cost me $10 + my 20% off coupon, so this was a good deal to try these babies out. So far after using it I would say it’s not an exact dupe & it’s a not even a close one. I felt that its not porous enough like the BB and even though it expands and doubles up in size it absorbs a lot of my foundation and which is why will not give any coverage. I also noticed that it started to peel after the first use. I’ve never had this happen before with any other sponge. I have read and heard a lots of good things about these but personally not a fan… 🙁
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer Pencil
Have been using the Anastasia Beverly Hills to fill in my brows for a while now and it’s so easy to use. The triangular tip works very well for my slightly thicker brows. I just need tiny strokes to fill in the sparse areas and then comb it through. I go over it with the brow gel in espresso n can’t be happier with the results. I got mine in the color Chocolate.
If you have not tried the Tarte Tarteist Glossy Lip paint then you really need to. It was love at first sight for me with this product. I just knew this will be a winner for me!! I bought the color Double tap and it’s the perfect sexy mauve glossy lip paint. I just can not put this down. Might just even get a backup for it. The formula is great not sticky and very pigmented. It instantly make the lips look plump and full. Summer time is more gloss than matte for me and this is just PERFECTION!!!
I recently got some partial highlights in my hair and also darkened my roots. My hairdresser suggested i use any color protecting Pureology Shampoo for longlasting color and shine. These Shampoos are quite up there in price so for now I just bought a mini Strength Cure Shampoo and I must say that a little goes a long way. I love it and will def wait for some kind of a sale on Pureology brand at Ulta before I buy a full size.
