I didn’t intend to place a Sephora order but when the Ariel mirror came back in stock I had to grab one for myself and one for my sister. Sephora’s released a few other limited edition Disney mirrors and they sell out like hotcakes every time! And since I had a couple of other items on my wish list I decided to buy those too in order to qualify for free shipping.
I’ve totally moved away from shimmers — I never thought that would happen! — and onto mattes. So far I have Sonia Kashuk’s matte Eye on Neutral and theBalm’s Meet Matt(e) Nude palettes and I love them both but I’ve come to the conclusion that one can never have too many mattes. I once owned Stila’s matte In the Know but sold it off unused and sorely regretted it, so I repurchased it along with Kat Von D’s matte Ladybird palette.
I haven’t tried either palette out yet but I’ve heard fantastic things about both. They contain similar colors but Ladybird appears to be a bit warmer toned compared to In the Know and slightly more colorful with its purple and blue shadows.
I plan on doing one big blog post with swatches of all my matte palettes in the near future.
