new obsession

sooooo, I had literally been bugging everyone at work about how bad I wanted a new eyeshadow palette. I kept looking online and in stores for something that had the colors I wanted. I already have palettes with multiple orangey-brown transition shades and browns and blacks. I wanted something with some pops of color for spring and summer. Then, of course, on Instagram I saw Lorac’s new I Love Brunch Palette.

Now, I already own Lorac’s Pro palette and their contouring palette and they are both AMAZING. The colors are smooth and pigmented and they blend easily. When I looked at the shades in the brunch palette (I’m just going to refer to it as the “brunch” palette, it’s easier) I saw they were all pastels. People are always afraid of pastels, they think the lighter brighter colors won’t look good on them…WRONG. I was, however, skeptical if they would be pigmented enough.

Well the next thing I knew I was in line at Ulta purchasing it. lol. Here’s what I think:

  • The colors are SUPER cute (the names are cute too, they’re all brunch related, like hot sauce, mimosa, etc).
  • The formula is the tried and true Lorac perfection. They are velvety smooth and PIGMENTED.
  • The palette comes with Lorac’s eyeshadow primer and a dual-ended brush. I use the brush almost every time I apply it. Sooooo, it’s a dang good brush. One is a blending brush and the other could be used a crease/packer brush.
  • The palette has a few transition shades (I use the shades “hot sauce” and “bloody mary”). The shades “mimosa” and “sunday funday” could also be used.
  • There are plenty of fun colored shades like “avocado toast” and “blueberry scone”.
  • A whole eye look can easily be created. There are both matte and shimmer shades.
  • It’s $44. Which is comparable to any other high-end cosmetics brand.

All in all, I LOVE this palette. I use it absolutely every day. It can be used for everyday work wear or going out on the town looks. Great purchase. If you’ve tried it, let me know what you think and show me some looks!

my new blog!

Hey guys! My name is Haley and this is my very first time blogging. I’m a busy Registered Nurse from Kentucky that spends all her free time doing something with makeup. I started being obsessed with makeup when I was a child. My mother would tell me that I would steal her lipsticks from out of her purse and smear them all over my face when she wasn’t looking. My fascination with makeup only grew, and I can tell you that there was never a day from middle school until college where I wasn’t wearing makeup. My fiance is one of the only people besides my family that has seen me barefaced if that tells you anything.

The turning point for me happened when I reached my 20’s. Instagram and Youtube were my biggest inspirations. I was (and still am) fascinated with makeup tutorials. I’ve learned sooooo much from those Instagrammers and Youtubers about how I apply my makeup. Laura Lee, Jeffree Star, and Manny MUA are some of my biggest inspirations. I am finally at a point in my life where I am more confident about makeup and I want to share what I know with others so they can learn all they can just like I have. I’m a 100% new blogger and have no idea what I’m doing. But if you love makeup as much as I do, check me out and we’ll exchange tips and our love for everything beauty.
