Just because something is from a drugstore does not mean that the quality of the product has to be lacking. Drugstore makeup that works has been my current favorite thing to find when I am looking for things to include in my posts. I have found that there are some things that cost much less than my high-end makeup that I prefer.
The Lorac Pirates of the Caribbean Cheek Palette is a limited edition launch that is associated with the upcoming movie. The collection included an large eyeshadow palette, a cheek palette, and several lip products. The cheek palette is the one that I was most interested in because it is different than most limited edition launches that are associated with movies. I am used to seeing eyeshadow palettes and typically they look pretty but are not practical.
The cheek palette has 6 shades and a large mirror. The packaging is typical cardboard with a magnet to keep it closed. It is very detailed and pretty and looks like a book (I have to assume that the packaging is based pretty closely on the movie).
Skincare routines can be so tricky, and I am always trying to find products that work well with both my skin and the other products that I use in my routine. It is important to always remember that it takes about 3-6 weeks for you skin to adjust to using new products. Depending on the ingredients, skin can go through a “purging” phase where breakouts and other situations can seem like they’re getting worse before they are getting better.
I am afraid of highlighting. I can admit it. I always love the way a pretty glow looks on everyone else, but I am always so afraid of “highlighting” the texture on my face and making myself look oily. I have been purchasing a lot of highlighters and trying to figure out a good way to highlight my face without emphasizing any imperfections. I feel like a lot of makeup is geared towards getting a quality picture for Instagram and sometimes being so heavy doesn’t translate well to real life. I decided to do a Tarteist Pro Glow review because this palette seems like it would be good for everyone, and could easily be used as a beginner palette when you’re not really sure what looks best on your skin.
Now that February is over, I am going to do a compilation of my favorite products that I have tried this month. I will start off by saying I did not have a lot high-end hits for this time around, and I was disappointed by a lot of the products that I purchased. I have to admit I was more satisfied with NYX, Wet N Wild, and elf this month.
The Basics: I believe this palette to be an Ulta exclusive (you can still purchase this on the Tarte’s Website). I also believe it is limited edition. You get 8 shadows, Lace is in a larger pan which is likely because it highlight color, for $29. This makes the cost of each shadow about $3.60, considering you like all of them, this is an excellent deal for the price. Find it here.
formulated without: parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, triclosan, sodium lauryl sulfate, gluten, dermatolgist tested
According to the information that is indicated on the back of the box, this palette would be great for those with sensitive skin; However, all of the shadows still contain talc.
