FOTD: Wildflowers

And here is Sunday's second look of the day.

I had a birthday party to go to on Sunday night at Peter Piper Pizza for a cousin's 7th birthday party. I decided to be fun with my eyeshadow and used a new eyeshadow palette for the first time.

I had seen this 5 pan palette at my local Dollar General months ago and I really wanted it but the only one they had was broken. Heck no. So I'd stalk my DG store often waiting for this palette to return. And it finally did the other day so I had to buy it. I have a small collection of these palettes but this one by far is my most favorite.

Drum roll please...

NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss
African Queen
I am so super duper in love with this palette. For a buck fifty, this is amazing pigmentation and the shadows were very smooth and easy to blend.

I am in love once again...

Oh, and the lip gloss! OMG! African Queen is beautiful! It's a bold, passionate hot pink with a blue/purple duo chrome to it. Ahh, it's gorgeous. Love it!

I was so happy with this look. Seriously. Not to toot my own horn but TOOT TOOT!

Well, that's it. I'm caught up with my FOTDs. I didn't wear makeup on Monday and as for today, I am wearing this look again since I had to recreate it for this post. Let's see what else I have in store.

Luv & Luk,

♥♥ All products mentioned in this post were bought by me with my own money. ♥♥

  6. Another beautiful look! $1.50? Are you kidding me?! Insane! They look very well pigmented! I'm in love with African Queen, it looks amazing on you!

  7. So pretty! It reminds me of a sunset :) Can't believe how pigmented it is either!! Love the lippie on you!

  8. @jessenia isabel, thanks again! Yup, $1.50!! I am loving African Queen so much but I probably won't wear it too too often. It's so bold! But it is pretty :)

    @Vintage Makeup, that's funny you say that because it wasn't until I actually finished the eye look that I thought the same thing. It totally does look like a summer sunset! The pigmentation on this is amazing. Very happy with it! And thank you for the sweet comment!

    @Tiffany, thank you! I agree this shadow is amazing and for the price, I couldn't ask for anything more :)

    @Amber, thanks! I love the brightness too! I was a little nervous at first because it is so bold but I couldn't help but like it :)

  12. That's such a pretty range of colors. I wish the dollar stores in my area had more cool stuff like this. I think I'll try to pick this up next time I order from Cherry Culture. Super cute look! Love the combo!

  13. @WitchHazel, girlie, I loved all the colors in this palette! I was lucky that I found this at my dollar store. They don't usually carry good stuff but sometimes they surprise me! Yeah, I recommend you get this one if you like bright colors. It didn't let me down :) Oh yes, thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving me such a nice little comment :)
