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 • $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 ($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 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?
