Lorac Pro Palette 2

After Sephora got rid of Lorac I came to terms with the fact that I'd have to make orders online if I ever wanted anything from the brand, until I spotted it at Kohls! Who goes makeup shopping at Kohls. In Alaska. No one. Why would they put that there, In Alaska Khols. I don't know. So anyway, there was a huge stack of these babies and they were calling to me. Had I not seen it there, I probably would have passed on buying it. I love, love my Lorac Pro Palette but when I saw number two, the colors weren't really appealing to me, but being the makeup hoarder that I am, I grabbed it anyway, because it was there, and yeah. Let me just tell you, I am so glad that I grabbed this palette!

If you have the first Pro Palette, you know very well that the eyeshadows are buttery and pigmented, with mattes on the top row, and shimmer on the bottom. With that being said, you are able to create subtle and dramatic looks to no end. I'm not going to go too in depth with this post, because there are tons of in depth reviews on this palette already, I'm really just here to express my undying love. I know I'm going to love this palette hard this winter, and I really ended up loving all of the shades, Nectar is probably my absolute favorite, it's so perfect as a transitional shade. Honestly, if you're having trouble between Urban Decay and Lorac, which I have totally been before, I've said this before with the first palette, Lorac has my heart. If you are an aspiring makeup artist, get the Lorac Pro Palettes, the combo between mattes and shimmer give you a large variety of textures and there are lots of different shades to work with. I'll add a photo below of the original Lorac Pro Palette so you can see the comparison, same packaging just different color. Lorac, you did it again.

A Cleansing Cloth You Deserve

I went into the Body Shop recently (really too regularly actually) to find "a couple" of things, walked out with this Luxury Flannel Facial Washcloth which was recommended by an employee. It was one of my freebies from their buy three, get two free so I wasn't really bummed at the fact that I knew this was white, and that it was going to stain! I went home, pondered at it's strange spongy material and tried it out, after using it I though I was going to end up chucking it into the trash BUT after quick rinse and ring out it was perfectly white and like new again, see before and after photos above. I was really quite shocked! This is a super soft material and really great at wiping away cleansing oils and balms. I also like to use it to heat my face with warm water before a face mask. This is $6.50 and a bargain indeed, I'm definitely going to stock up.

After use, I like to wash it out with a gentle facial wash and then hang dry it. It dries really strange, imagine money gone through the washer and dryer, it becomes really stiff and hard, and quite ugly, but it's really amazing and I've finally found my holy grail facial cloth.

Pop of Purple FOTD ft. UD Electric Palette

Quick face of the day post, I used shades Jilted and Urban from the palette to create the purple on my lower lash line, I added the ELF Natural Lashes which are actually quite nice for just a dollar, and on my lips is Wet n' Wild Bare It All. Hope you're all enjoying the sun and keeping your skin safe!
