Lorac Pro Palette EOTD

Awhile ago when Ulta had a 20% off sale, I finally bought the Lorac Pro Palette.
I really like these types of big palettes, great for traveling (which I will be doing in 1 week's time. Woot!).


The palette is decently priced, $42 for the palette and a travel size of their eye shadow primer.


Comes with 16 shades. Ohhhh so pretty!



Top row: matte shadows
Bottom row: shimmery shadows


I did a quick smokey look with the palette. The shadows are very pigmented and blend easily.


I used the following colors for this look:
Garnet all over the lid
Taupe in the crease to contour
Deep Purple on the outer corner
Espresso to deepen outer corner (just a tiny bit)
Gold in inner corner to highlight

One downside is that the shadows are very powdery and soft so there is quite a bit of fallout. I just make sure to tap the excess off my brush so it's not that big of a deal.


I really like this palette, particularly due to it having more matte shades than the Naked palette. I really like the Garnet and Deep Purple shades. I love me some reds and purples!
Nice palette. Go buy it. XD

Burberry Lip Products

Many moons ago I purchased a few Burberry Beauty items whilst I was in Hong Kong. Due to my snail pace, I am reviewing the lip products now. I reviewed the Complete Eye Palette awhile back.


I purchased the Burberry Lip Glow in No. 08 Cameo. Retails for $27.



The formula is a nice consistency. It is a bit thick but not sticky, feels very comfortable and moisturizing on the lips. The thicker formula also means a longer wear time. It has a very faint soapy floral scent which dissipates shortly after application.


Cameo is a peachy orange shade that shows up as a redder peach color on my lips. It isn't extremely opaque but wears nicely on its own for a sheer wash of color. It also looks great over a nude lipstick.


I also purchased the Lip Cover in No. 23 English Rose. Retails for $30.
The Lip Covers have a soft satin finish.


English Rose is a rosy mauve color on my lips. It is a deeper shade than I typically buy but the color is very wearable on a daily basis. 
The soft satin formula allows for a smooth and easy application. The color goes on semi-opaque and can be built up. I like that this lipstick gives a slight sheen so in the off chance that I am lazy (more often than you'd think), I can skip the gloss and still have a nice subtle shine on the lips.  
As with the Lip Glow, the Lip Cover has a very subtle floral scent. 


Swatches
Top: Lip Cover in No. 23 English Rose
Bottom: Lip Glow in No. 08 Cameo


The formula of both lip products are great. Plus the packaging is very nice, as expected of Burberry. A nice pick-me-up when you feel like using something fancy XD

I'm addicted to this song. 
Just looking at Pharrell makes me happy ^^ The man is 40, how is that possible.

Innisfree Long Wear BB Cream

During one of my many shopping excursions in Seoul back in October, I purchased the Innisfree Long Wear BB Cream to try.
I like thicker BB creams that have higher coverage so this long wear formula seemed promising.
The product comes in a slim squeeze tube, rather minimal but good to travel with. 


I got shade no. 2 Natural Beige. It is a pretty good match for my skintone. I recall shade no. 1 being too pink upon swatching. 


The formula is very thick but doesn't look cakey upon application. 
I really like the coverage it provides and as the name states, it is quite long wearing. I blot and touch-up with powder once day when using this and it holds up well throughout the work day. I wouldn't say it is as long wearing as certain long wear foundations, such as the Estee Lauder Double Wear, but it will last a good 12 hours without looking patchy or greasy. 


I can't remember the price I paid but it was rather affordable, under $20.
The product claims to whiten, minimize wrinkles, & provide UV protection. I can't say I see any drastic whitening or wrinkle minimizing results solely from using this product.
But overall it is a good everyday bb cream for me. If you are someone who prefers a more lightweight bb cream, this is not it XD

This is good. A bit too good. 
I promise it is funny XD
