Friday Favorites – Back To Basics

Purchased by Me Affiliate Link

With all the Back To School shopping being done this time of year, I have felt the need myself to upgrade my basics… Not for Back To School, of course!  Here are my favorite Makeup Basics I have purchased recently!

Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Palette

Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Palette • $34.00 - I thought this palette would be too warm for me, but I caved and bought it when the UD website hosted a promo last week with three free gifts.  I was feeling a little guilty about ordering ANOTHER neutral palette until Phyrra did this awesome post.  I received this palette yesterday and really loved how the look I created with it came out.

LORAC Pocket Pro Palette

LORAC 'Pocket PRO' Palette ($57 Value) • $15.00 - I picked this palette up on a whim from Beauty.com when I needed to add something to my cart to get free shipping.  I am probably the only neutral palette lover in the world who doesn't own the actual LORAC Pro Palette!  I love all three of these shades to death, and I have a feeling they would have been the most used shades if I actually owned the Pro Palette.  It's going to be fantastic for travel!

bareminerals 5 in 1 soft linen
bareMinerals 5 in 1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow • $18.00 - After seeing so many people rave about the BareMinerals 5 in 1 shadow I just had to try it myself.  I picked up the shade Soft Linen, which is neutral with soft shimmer.  I love wearing it on its own and as a base for shadow!  The shimmer really helps brighten up my eyes.

Have you been in the mood to shop for basics lately?
