OOTD: Transitioning into Fall! (Featuring JustFab!)

Fall, I'm ready!


My favorite time of year is quickly approaching and I couldn't be more excited! Don't get me wrong, I can appreciate the warm weather but there's nothing like the fall breeze!

Today's outfit of the day was inspired by the transition of summer to fall. It's still pretty warm in Utah but this day I was in Park City which is cooler so the cardigan was perfect!

What I wore:
Cardigan- H&M
Black Bodysuit- Forever 21, click here for something similar 
Shorts- Kohl's
Combat Boots- JustFab

These boots were so comfy! I love the pattern when you fold them down and the exposed zipper on the back. They are so versatile and a staple for the upcoming fall/winter.

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!

Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for more OOTD's! :-)

Review: Ulta + Jenny Fox- Miss Fabulous Palette! (Swatches + Looks!)

Fall Lovers Dream!

Ulta + Jenny Fox- Miss Fabulous Palette
Who else is excited for fall to roll around!? :-D
When I first saw the Ulta + Jenny Fox- Miss Fabulous Palette I quickly thought about the upcoming season and the gorgeous fall colors that I adore! I'm a warm palette lover and even though I own so many already I feel like I can always make room for one more haha. This palette screamed my name and the price made it a no brainer. It retails for $20 which is amazing for a palette with 12 shadows. But... I got an even better deal! Ulta was having buy 1 get 1 free on their collection, plus the $3.50 off 10 and my points!... Let's just say me and my best friend are super happy at almost no cost at all!

I've been watching MissJenFabulous for years now and I'm so obsessed with her nail tutorial even though I'm horrible at nail art haha. I watched her video where she talks about the palette and the shadow names and I think it's so cool how she went about it! It's pretty much her personality encased in awesome packaging. It also comes with a pretty good brush that matches the exterior of the palette.

Here are the swatches by row! Looking at the overall color selection I wished she had included a matte medium brown shade to replace one of the matte oranges to add some dimension. I love the tones in the palette but being that your matte shades are all in the warm orange family it makes your eye looks very similar.
But let me stress how beautiful the shadows work together! I will say some are a bit powdery and the shimmers actually have micro-glitter which tends to fall on my face when applying them so that's a bummer. The metallic shades are not super vibrant and foiled how I like them but they look really pretty on the eye. Virgo which is the first shade is one of my favorites! It looks stunning as an inner corner highlight... I actually reach for it all the time regardless if I'm using the palette or not haha.

The colors may swatch on the lighter side but they build up easily. The mattes blend really well so as a whole this is a great palette for the warm shadow lover in your life. Let's get into the looks!

I went for a warm crease and purple-plum lid for a daytime smokey-ish look on the left side and on the right is more of an everyday neutral-warm look which I love and got tons of compliments on (which is always good right? lol). 

Bottom line: I really like this palette! I think it's a great price point given the fact that Ulta has an amazing rewards program, great sales and coupons. The color selection is beautiful and the formula has hits and misses but nothing you can't work with. Will I be using this palette this upcoming fall? Heck Yes! I recommend you do too! :-)

Review: City Color Cosmetics City Chic Eye Shadows! (Swatches + Look!)

So Impressed!

City Color Cosmetics City Chic Eye Shadows
City Color Cosmetics makes my favorite metallic finish shadows called the Shimmer Shadows! I have a review on some of the colors that I will leave linked here if you wanna check it out. Since that formula was such a hit for me I decided to try their City Chic Eye Shadows and I'm in love! :-)
This line is newly reformulated with a few new shades and they're only $4.99 (pretty good deal!). The four shades that I purchased are a mix of satins and metallics. There's tons of pretty colors to choose from but let's get into the ones I picked!

They come in really cute, simple packaging making it easy to store. I chose very fall appropriate colors haha... I just can't wait for the fall guys!

Here are the color names and swatches! I was so impressed by the pigment in these shadows. I should've known they would be awesome since the Shimmer Shadows are so nice. They blended so well too without loosing the color and over primer they lasted a while!

I used all four colors in the look below. I used Tuscany in the crease and as my blending shade, Golden Nights all over the lid, Aztec Warrior on the outer crease and Purple Reign as a deepening shade in the outer corner.

Bottom line: I love this line and I highly recommend them! The shadows are so  nice and I still can't believe how affordable they are. I hope they come out with more colors cause I might by them all haha. If you want to save some more money make sure to use coupon code ReinaRivera at checkout for an extra 10% off! :-)
