Makeup Resurrection: Top 5 Palettes I Need to Use More

I want to resurrect these palettes, get them back into my regular makeup rotation and rekindle the feeling of excitement I had when I first purchased them. Let’s take a lot at a few lesser loved palettes in my collection.

How Much is My Face Worth?

How much is my face worth? It’s an intriguing question. I’ve seen this tag go around the Youtube/blogosphere for a few years now. Before now, I’ve never been brave enough to sit down and add up the total amount of money the makeup I put on my face costs. So, I thought there’s no better way to spend a quiet quarantine day than to total it all up! I’m busting out my calculator because I know the total is going to be too high for me to add up mentally.

Too Faced: Sparkling Pineapple Palette Review

And so it grows! The story of my ever expanding Too Faced collection. Recently, I bought the Sparkling Pineapple eyeshadow palette from the Tutti Frutti collection. I’ve wanted to try the Tutti Frutti collection since it was released, but it’s not available at Sephora so accessing the line in Canada isn’t easy.

Urban Decay: Born to Run Palette Review

I’ve wanted the Born to Run palette since its release last year. The wanderlust design spoke to me on a spiritual level but Born to Run reminded me a lot of the old Vice palettes Urban Decay used to release. I own several of the Vice palettes and I rarely use them. I decided I wouldn’t use Born to Run enough to justify the $64.00 CAD price tag…then it went on sale! The price dropped to $39.00 CAD at Sephora so I decided to indulge my desire to own this travel themed palette. Let’s see how Born to Run performs!

Marc Jacobs Beauty: Eye-Conic Edgitorial Palette Review

Presenting! Edgitorial, the Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow palette by Marc Jacobs Beauty. This grungy, green palette is so sleek (and dare I say edgy). The deep olive tones running throughout this palette give me serious punk rock vibes. This palette has been in my collection for over a year but I recently rediscovered it. Getting reacquainted with Edgitorial gave me that new palette feeling, so I thought I would review it. Let’s see how Edgitorial performs, (it’s so hard to keep typing Edgitorial correctly).

So…I caved. I bought the Sultry palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills. I’ve been eyeing this palette for months. I stalked Sultry online, I would go checkout how it looked in person at Sephora (it looked good) – but I never went all the way. I convinced myself I didn’t need Sultry in my life. Then the price finally dropped! I scored this gorgeous palette on sale for $35.00 CAD at Sephora in 2018. Let’s find out how this cool toned dreamboat performs.
