Lorac California Dreaming Eyeshadow Palette Review:

Happy Fall Equinox glamour babes! Could you believe it?! Fall has officially crept up on us in its good old fashion style-sneaky! So, as you have your pumpkin spiced latte in one hand, Lorac’s California Dreaming Eyeshadow Palette should be in the other (on sale for $15. Orig. $30).

Even though it’s a summer palette, the soft, universal shades are neutral enough to wear during all seasons.

The limited Edition Palette has a variety of shades, containing 6 Matte and 7 Shimmer finishes.

Sandcastle is a warm pearl shimmer.

Button is a linen shimmer.

Overcast is a dusty lilac matte.

Bonfire is a pastel mauve matte.

Hot Toddy is a rose mauve matte.

Starfish is a coral bronze shimmer.

Seaside is a deep emerald shimmer.

Cable Knit is a plum wine matte.

Cozy is a khaki matte

Boots is a blue steel shimmer.

Kitty Cat (my favorite) is a bronze pewter shimmer that looks more like a foil finish.

65 Degrees is a pink champagne shimmer, and is the least pigmented out of the twelve. I use it to highlight my brow bones or base for the lids.

The formulation of the eyeshadows are finely milled with a super soft texture. When applying, I suggest using some sort of an eyeshadow shield to prevent fallout. These can get messy. They are highly pigmented, comfortable to wear, blends and builds well, does not crease or run, and works for all skin tones.

You can play them up or down. Either way you do it, your eyes will stand out beautifully. I love creating pale, dusty lids and lining my lower lash line with a more deeper shade (Kitty Cat) to make my eyes pop.

I haven’t worn eyeshadow in 10 years (crazy I know) so I am having a ton of fun at the moment experimenting with various palettes, especially this one. Like I need another addiction, lol. At least it’s affordable…….hahahahaha. Yea right. Who am I kidding?!

The longevity of these eyeshadows last just as long as the California Dreaming Cheek Palette- 8 to 9 hours with or without primer. You’re probably better off using a shadow primer to keep the hues rich. They will fade a bit without it.

Lorac’s California Dreaming Eyeshadow Palette is available online at LoracCosmetics.com for the sale price above, which is a nice steal for a high end palette.

Do you think you’ll grab one?! Way or no way?

Stay beautiful! Xo.

Lorac Cosmetics California Dreaming Cheek Palette Review:

Do not let this palette get away glamour babes. Lorac Cosmetics California Dreaming Cheek Palette is definitely one to consider owning. The shades are beautiful. And, it is now on sale for $21 (orig $30 for 0.48oz) on their site!!! Link is above.


The cheek palette carries four limited edition shades that will add highlight, color, and glow to your complexion.

Sunlight is a warm gold pearl shimmer.

Wavelength is a soft warm pink shimmer.

Ray is a warm dusty matte rose, that works nicely as a contour shade.

Golden Hour is a rose gold bronze shimmer.

Ray and Golden Hour are very dark for fair skin tones. I’d go in with a light hand when applying these two shades. Lightly swirl and tap your brush of any excess powder. If bronzers or blushes are something you’re not use to wearing. The colors can come off as overwhelming.
Perfect for everyday wear. The formulation of the four are finely milled (kick back alert), richly pigmented, velvety smooth, lightweight, comfortable to wear, apply evenly and easily, blendable, buildable, flattering on all skin tones, and have a frosted pearl finish, except for Ray.

You can wear them invidually or mix and match the shades to create a customizable one.
I didn’t get that creative. I liked wearing the neutral toned hues separately, using Ray as a contour, and sometimes as a rosy blush to get some color back into those cheeks of mine.

The color payoff is great. Sunlight, Wavelength, Ray, and Golden Hour stayed intact for a full nine hours, showing lots of glow, vibrancy and warmth throughout the entire day.

So, what do you think of Lorac’s California Dreaming Cheek Palette?

Is she pickin up a good vibration?

Becca x Chrissy Teigan Glow Face Palette Review:

Oh, the Becca x Chrissy Teigan Glow Face Palette ($46.00 for 0.53 oz.) is another makeup must have glamour babes.

Her palette is drop dead gorgeous! It creates the perfect sun-kissed glow.

The palette includes two highlighters, a blush, and bronzer that comes housed in a slim, somewhat large square shaped compact. Travel friendly approved!

Rose Gold is a warm pinkish golden copper.Hibiscus Bloom is a vibrant watermelon pinkMalibu Soliel is a medium fawn tan. I love using this shade to contour my cheekbones as I blend the other shades into each other.Peach Nectar is a soft peachy coral.All of the shades intertwine beautifully, and add a lovely touch of warmth to your complexion. I believe this would be an excellent palette to have around for the fall. I do get a little pale, so warmth is something I look for to create a healthy dose of radiance.

The finely milled formula is lightweight, smooth textured, blendable, buildable, highly pigmented, comfortable to wear, easy to apply, long lasting, flatters all skin tones, and sets in a satin/pearlized finish.

The highlighters, blush, and bronzer lasted close to 9 hours before fully fading away, leaving only a soft shimmer on my cheeks. I don’t mind rocking a bit of glitz and glam by the end of night, and neither will you!

The Becca x Chrissy Teigan Glow Face Palette is limited edition, but is still available at Sephora, Becca Cosmetics, Ulta Beauty, and B-Glowing.com.

Don’t second guess yourself, buy the palette if you haven’t already.

She’s a keeper.

Stay beautiful! Xo.

Kiko Milano Spring 2.0 Natural Colour Highlighter Review:

My first Kiko Milano purchase was a success glamour babes! I am in love with their cosmetics. The limited edition Spring 2.0 Natural Colour Highlighters ($20 for 0.31 oz.) are stunning!

I might have to add a few more pieces of this collection to my very own. Kiko is having a huge sale right now (50% off), making it the perfect excuse to buy more make-up. Lol.

Product Description:
Formulated with Moringa seeds and infused with a green tea fragrance.

I can’t stop inhaling these highlighters! They smell so good. Is there something wrong with me? That statement doesn’t sound right. Lol. Whateves, I’ll own it. Makeup is my new aromatherapy.

This well-researched product provides high-definition make-up that brushes on smoothly and easily.
A concealer with additional highlighting properties has been incorporated into the center of the highlighter and fashioned in the shape of the “pause” symbol. Blending the two different textures creates a lightweight, natural effect that adds light while concealing imperfections.

The designer Ross Lovegrove created the practical pearl white compact featuring the KK logo on the top and a handy internal mirror. The compact’s original design with its references to a woman’s fluid, sensual movements is truly elegant and refined. The raised surface provides a new tactile and visual experience and makes it easy to find the compact in your purse (travel friendly alert!).

Iridescent Champagne is a soft gold/pale cotton candy, baby pink highlighter.

Iridescent Rose is a rose gold/ cool lavender highlighter.

The baked formula is lightweight, has a smooth texture, comfortable to wear, easy to apply, easy to blend, nicely pigmented, color catches on to the brush efforlessly, can be layered, suitable for all skin tones, and has a pearlized finish.

I like that these can be used as part of your everyday makeup routine. There’s just enough shimmer to create a beautiful, natural healthy looking glow that lasts for up to 8 hours. I really do enjoy makeup that requires no touch-ups in between the day. It makes life just a little bit easier for us goils. I mean, women do run the world after all.

You can still get your hands on the Spring 2.0 Collection at KikoCosmetics.com

Are you getting anything!? There’s a big sale going on….hint, hint, nudge, nudge.

Do share!

Stay beautiful, xo.
