I’ve been getting stuck while blogging so I just want to post something to nudge myself out of the slump. This tee, studs, & cherry lip balm I picked up Wednesday night when out with Mike. The posts of Fossil’s studs are a little thicker than some (just FYI.) I was able to wear them comfortable today though.
I got this Starbucks pour-over coffee maker for Christmas. I don’t drink a lot of coffee but I never liked coffee makers. Mine always annoyed me so I never made coffee. I LOVE this system though. It’s just so much easier and cleanup is a breeze. Maybe because it’s more like making tea I just like doing it this way better.
I recently tried out this eyeshadow palette from Yesstyle. It’s a part of Shu Uemura’s 2013 holiday collection called 6♡ Princess. A collaboration with Takashi Murakami. This is the Enchanted Black Parallel palette.
There are 7 iridescent and pearly eye shadows with 1 blush color. The colors are rich and vibrant. I’ve been using the gold, silver, black, and pearl pink heavily since receiving the palette. The plum blush is strongly pigmented and a little goes a long way.
Shu Uemura 6♡ Princess Enchanted Black Parallel Palette
Rich, highly pigmented colors
Good variety of shades
Gold and silver together in 1 palette
Glitter fallout especially with pearl pink shade (using NARS primer)
Works best with included compact brushes (and not well with other brushes)
Final thoughts: This is a good palette for adding a mix of colors into any collection especially mine which is mostly made of of neutrals. I have 2 of Shu Uemura’s previous holiday palettes. I personally prefer the texture and variety in those previous palettes but these offer more color choices in the eye shadow. The top 3 shades are perfect for the holidays. I love gold shadow this time of year and silver with black are perfect for New Year’s. I also liked that a single palette offered both silver and gold. These two shades are usually found in separate eye shadow palettes when given the choice. Also a good palette for celebrating Mardi Gras ;)
