Department: Beauty | L'oreal La Palette Nude 1 and Nude 2 Review

March 28, 2015

Yesterday I shared my newest find, the L'Oreal La Palette Nude 1 and Nude 2 eye shadow collection, found in my Wegmans grocery store.  Everywhere you look you find the cardboard place holders reminding you that it is least around here...and the only place I actually found them were the ULTA beauty store and a grocery store.
When I saw that beautiful display of both the lip and nail products along with these eye shadows, I knew I better get it or I would regret it.  I did have $16.00 worth of rewards expiring on Monday from CVS so I was hoping I would find them there to save a bit. But they didn't have them in yet.  And sometimes Rite Aid drug stores offer L'Oreal products for 40% again, I would need to wait.
But after using it today, I am so glad I didn't!!!
I used both palettes and blended the colors on eyelids that had a base primer coat of NYX Jumbo Eye Crayon #604milk, a tip I learned from one of my favorite beauty bloggers.  And after a long day, my eyes are still perfect!  I was really surprised. With a lot of products, and wearing a base coat of primer, by mid day I am crease filled and the color is mostly gone.
I have been an avid beauty product user since I was a teen and I have tried very expensive products and very inexpensive products.  The adage that you get what you pay for, most times, is true. 
These palettes really are worth every penny.  And I think they are a perfect starting point for anyone just starting out wearing eye shadow and those of us well established. I love that the colors are all complimentary to each other and there are mattes and shimmers alike included.
I would suggest investing in a good applicator.  These do come with  mirror inside the lid an a dual ended applicator...but I prefer a sturdier feel applicator when I am blending. That's just me.
The back of the palette offers four looks that are numbered to help you achieve each look easily.
As  I try each I will update this post.
"Eye" hope you enjoy yours as much as "eye" am.  ;)

Bath & Body Works | Hobnail Glass | Single Wick Candles

March 27, 2015
They say good things come to those who wait...and I am a believer. 
Last year when the BBW test stores down south began offering these pretty hobnail glass candles around mothers day I think it was, if I am remembering correctly..I really wanted one.  I loved the colored glass and the reminiscent hobnail look of the glassware I saw growing up.
A "friend" said that they would be glad to get it for me ....ahem... yes, sure...but that never happened.  And with the stores not shipping candles, I was out of luck. Usually if things were being tested, eventually it releases nationwide, but these didn't then.
Here we are a year later and these candles will be available for everyone coming April 13th....just in time for this years Mother's Day.
So far there were Lilac Blossom, Sundress and Watermelon...and they are so pretty in person, it was worth the waiting.

Department: Beauty: L'oreal Makeup Designer / Paris | La Palette Nude 1 and Nude 2 | Limited Edition Pure Reds Collection

March 27, 2015
While out shopping today I went on the hunt for the new
L'Oreal La Palette Nude 1 and Nude 2 eye shadow collections I saw at ULTA Beauty a few weeks ago.  ULTA Beauty had them buy one get one at half off but I was hoping to save a bit on them as they were priced at $19.99 each.
I did stop at CVS Drug to see what my rewards were up to and to see if they had the palettes yet and while the space is reserved for them on the wall, they had not yet received any yet. No price was shown.
My last stop was at a Wegmans Food Store and sure enough in the beauty department, they had them on this beautiful display.  Perfect for Mother's Day
2015 The Women of Worth Collection
was shown both in the eye shadow collection as well as the Colour Riche lip and nail collections.  Once again they used their famous spokesmodels for this Limited Edition Pure Reds Collection and these colors are incredible.
The eye shadow collections were priced at $16.99 and the lipstick was $4.99 and nail polish was $6.49.
I am hoping for a sale at Rite Aide or CVS so I can try a few of the other items.  I really loved the Nudes collection offered previously.
Inspired by makeup designers 'Must Have' palettes, the La Palette Nude offers everything you need to master the art of nude eyeshadow. Makeup Designer Nude looks curated exclusively for each palette with step by step instructions and live tutorials. 10 highly pigmented shades range from light to dark to flatter every skin tone in 3 shadow finishes: shimmery satin, buttery matte & lustrous sheen.

Eye-designer brush & mirror for effortless application
