The Lipstick League – week of 7.31.17
Question of the Week: What’s your favorite makeup palette, and why?
Trying to pick a favorite makeup palette is hard! There are so many good cruelty free makeup palettes out there. If I had to pick the one I go back to again and again, and the one I’d be most sad to lose, it would have to be the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette. I love peachy shades and warm neutrals. This palette is so perfect for my light (NC-20-ish) skin tone (with slightly yellow undertones). The colors that I use the most are Bellini and Carmelized. You can see how well-loved it is in the pic above (I don’t usually share pics of used products but I wanted to show you that I REALLY use this one!), and I don’t even wear makeup that often! As a blogger, I get to hang out in my sweats on most days!
My second favorite palette is one that is fairly new in my life – the Tarte Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Palette. I tend to prefer matte shades, with a little sparkle as a highlight, and I feel that most palettes cater to the blinged-out crazy swatches that look good on Instagram. These shades look great on me – super classy, and if I want to add shimmer, I have plenty of other palettes I can use! The pink and purple shades are the ones I use the most – Caregiver, Natural Beauty and Best Friend. Also – they don’t really play this up, but the palette smells like chocolate!
Please note that not all Lipstick League posts are cruelty free.
