Must Haves: Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette!

Stunning Colors!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette
This palette inspires me! :-) Given the fact that I own so many eyeshadow palettes it's hard for something to blow me away but this palette took my breath away! (dramatic but true haha) These colors spoke to me right off the bat and I'm telling you... you need this in your life! It retails for $42 which for a higher end palette it's a good price. I ordered mine from Sephora which is now having their 20% off sale so definetely take advantage of the discount.

I love the velvet exterior, it's so different! It comes with 14 gorgeous eyeshadows, great selection of neutrals with some beautiful pops of berries.

The shadows feel so smooth and velvety and the pigmentation is amazing! They do kick up A LOT of product which is a bummer because you're bound to hit pan quicker. But... the shadows just blend so well so I guess I can overlook that haha.

I have a few looks to share with you below. I tried to use a good mix of shades and honestly I couldn't stop using this palette haha. I wore the first look to work for a more everyday look. I played around with the cooler tones in the second look. The third and fourth were both night looks and my favorites!

OOTD: Fifty Shades Of Fall! (Featuring Justfab!)

Booties & Hubby!

Justfab

It's November!! My hubby and I will be celebrating our two year wedding anniversary on the 22nd! :-) We decided to do fall themed photo-shoot so we can have some updated pictures for our living room and I'm so happy with how they turned out! My lovely friend Carolina took them and they turned out amazing! She just started a YouTube channel so definitely check it out by clicking here, you will love her personality! 

I wanted to embrace the colors of the leaves changing in our outfits so I decided to go with burgundy! Justfab came through with the "Liyanna" bootie because it made my outfit complete! It's a super comfy bootie. I love the quilted detail and the gold zipper

We didn't invest in a photographer for our wedding to save some money so I'm so happy we did this photo-shoot! I printed the picture above and framed it (poster size) and now I get to look at it everyday! <3

What I wore:
Jeans- American Eagle (same style, different color)
Booties- Justfab

I love JustFab and can't begin to tell you how many awesome sales I've taken advantage of! The prices are great and the quality even better!

Review: Stila Star Light, Star Bright Highlighting Palette!

Unique Formula!

Stila Star Light, Star Bright Highlighting Palette
All the Holiday sets and palettes are releasing and I've made a promise to myself to only buy whats different! A lot of them are starting to look identical to previous years which I'm not mad about because my bank account will thank me later haha. So what's so unique about this product you ask? It's a bouncy texture! I was so unsure on how to apply these highlighters but once I figured it out I completely fell in love with the palette! :-)
Basics: I purchased it from Sephora.com for $39 and the claim is that these will leave a naturally radiant glow to your skin. Lets get into my thoughts!
Stila Star Light, Star Bright Highlighting Palette
I appreciate how sleek the packaging is! When I first saw the shades I was concerned that I would only be able to wear Kitten (the middle shade) but this palette is pretty versatile! You can mix the shades to create the perfect highlight and even wear them as shadows!
They are a bouncy formula, kinda like colourpop! It's such a cool concept because when swatched it doesn't look like much but on the skin it's sooo intense yet natural! It melts into the skin beautifully and you can build it up to the intensity you prefer.
I used my mini beauty blender to apply and that was perfect! After 8 hours of wear it still looked stunning!

Kitten is my favorite! Below I'm wearing Kitten on the left and Transcendence on the right. Kitten is definitely more illuminating while Transcendence is a more subtle opalescent glow. I haven't tried Bronze because it's a little too deep for me right now but it would be beautiful for the summer.
Stila Star Light, Star Bright Highlighting Palette
Bottom line: I love this palette! I took a leap of faith when ordering it but I'm so happy I did! It's simple to use, just make sure to use a sponge rather than a brush. It stays put and you can even layer a powder highlight over for added glow! If you've been eyeing this palette I'd say go for it! :-)
