MAKE UP FOR EVER Lustrous Faves Set

What it is:
Get party ready with this limited-edition lip gloss and loose powder set of neutral metallic lip essentials.

This set contains:
  • Artist Metallic Lip Gloss in Pink Champagne
  • Star Lit Powder in 13 Ivory

Colors from T to B: Pink Champagne, Ivory, Pink Champagne lip gloss topped with Ivory star lit powder

Verdict: This set is absolutely fantastic. You get two full sized Make Up For Ever beauty products for just $25. The metallic lip gloss is a beautiful shade of pink and the starlit powder is a perfect white gold color. The lip gloss was a bit sticky but the color payoff was fantastic. This MUFE lipgloss was so much better than the Smashbox metallic liquid lipsticks I had tried out a few months ago. The starlit powder can be used on its own or added on top of the lipgloss to give your lip look a bigger dose of glitter. I am a fan of this new set and cannot wait to create some awesome metallic lip looks for the holiday season.

BECCA Après Ski Eyeshadow Palette

What it is:
A limited edition eyeshadow palette featuring Becca's bestselling Shimmering Skin Perfector Highlighter formula customized specifically for the eyes.

Colors in the Palette:

  • Rose Quartz (soft pink)
  • Moonstone (pale gold)
  • Opal (golden opal pearl)
  • Topaz (golden bronze pearl)
  • Toasted Marshmallow (taupe brown)
  • Hot Cocoa (warm burgundy) 
  • Pearl (soft luminescent white)


Verdict: Its my favorite time of the year. The holiday sets are arriving quickly and I am loving it. The new Apres Ski palette from Becca is gorgeous. The packaging alone is just so chic. The colors look beautiful in the palette but unfortunately no transition shades are included. The formula of the shadows is a bit lackluster. The shades apply quite sheer and you really need to pack them on to achieve a nice opaque look. If you just want a sheer wash of color then this palette is great for you but other then that I would recommending passing on it.
