Tardy to the Party...Too Faced Natural Matte Palette


Hello! My name is Tardy to the Party, and I am just now getting around to trying the Too Faced Natural Matte palette. I'll be honest, I just didn't think I needed it. I have a few matte palettes already (Kat Von D Ladybird, IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty, and Urban Decay Naked Basics 1 & 2), not mention I have several single matte shadows that I adore (Hello MUFE Artist shadows); so I hesitated. Why...Why...Why...did I wait?

Hands down this palette is a HIT!!! If you are looking for an everyday, easy to use, go with everything, partner palette; this is a great option. The shadows are incredibly smooth, the colors are beautiful and the all blend like a dream. I initially thought that they would be too light, but on the eye they look fantastic.

Adora


When a sweet beauty lover surprises you with an adorable (yet badass) lipstick and nail polish duo, you have to write a blog post about it...Right?

Kat Von D and Sephora Formula X teamed up and released a collection of mini lipsticks and nail polishes based around some of Kat Von D's most iconic shades.


At first, I didn't think Adora would be a color that I would like on the lips, but as soon as I applied it... I was hooked. It is a beautiful red with heavy gold frost, and I can't get enough.

This little surprise treat is making my wonder why I didn't pick up a few of these beauties for myself.

Accordingly, this sweet little kit is only $29.50, and is most certainly going on my ever growing wish list.

Face Of The Moment #1



Some might call it a makeup rut, but I call it an obsession. I have been wearing this look pretty much non-stop for the past few weeks. I can't get enough of this deep, sultry eye and neutral brown lip.

                                       

THE FACE:

1. Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Under Eye Primer
2. Hourglass Mineral Veil:
This has been and still is my all time favorite primer. It smoothes everything out and makes you foundation almost waterproof (I don't know how it manages to do that). It is a bit pricey at $58, but totally worth it.
3. Marc Jacobs Genius Gel Foundation:
I thought I was in love with this foundation when I first purchased it, but it turns out that I am only marginally fond of it. The color match is pretty good, but for the price, it doesn't rock my world like I wanted it to.
4. Sephora Collection Bright Future Serum Concealer:
I did't have super high hopes for this concealer when I first brought it home, but I am happy to say that I was pleasantly surprised by it. it blends nicely and lays on the skin beautifully...overall it's fabulous.
5. MAC Prim and Proper Blush:
This blush was limited edition, but it has been a favorite for years.

THE EYES:

1. MAC Soft Ochre Paint Pot (NOT PICTURED)
2. Makeup Forever Artist Shadows M636 (Cappuccino) and D308 (Aquatic Khaki):
These are, by far, my favorite eyeshadow formula of all time. They are pigmented like you would not believe, and they blend like a dream. In addition to the formula, the color selection is out of this world!
3. Burberry Wet/Dry Glow Slim Lip Pencil in MaShadow in Shell:
This product gets a lot of mixed reviews, but I can't get enough. It is shimmery in all the right ways.
4. Kat Von D Autograph Eyeliner in Immortal Love


THE LIPS:

1. NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Mahogany:
Easily my all time favorite lip pencil.
2. MAC Lipstick in Whirl
