elf Prism Eyeshadow Palette in "Sunset" || First Impression and Swatches :: Fall Eyeshadows

Hey guys! 

I've been eyeshadow crazy lately. I've been itching to get my hands on both the Too-Faced Everything Nice Gift Palette and the MakeUp Geek Vegas Lights Palette. Have you seen/read reviews of these palettes? They look gorgeous! They have so many Fall to Winter shades I really want to try.

I really wanted to share this elf Prism Eyeshadow Palette called "Sunset" because I think it has beautiful Fall shades. I randomly found it in Target yesterday and I wanted to put this post up ASAP because I'm already in love with it! It only retails for $10.00 which is a bit more pricey than other elf products but still very reasonably priced if you ask me.

This isn't a review, it's more of a first impressions post. 

These don't have individual eyeshadow names (boo!) so I decided to number them from left to right.

These remind me a lot of baked eyeshadows. They are very very metallic and shimmery, not one is matte. The box in which the palette came says you can wear them wet or dry. The swatches you see above are dry. I also used Wet N' Wild's Fergie Eye Primer. I think the pigmentation of 1,3,4,and 5 is very impressive. Numbers 2 and 6 are a bit more chalky and I did need to apply more to get an opaque look. 

They did have some fall out but nothing to make me go bananas over. 

The box also claims that these have a cream texture. I do agree that they have a LOVELY texture I wouldn't consider them to feel exactly like a cream. They do feel very fine and silky. 

I can't wait to actually wear them and share with you some looks!

While you're looking at Fall to Winter palettes you might consider this for yourself or for a friend!

**Disclaimer: I bought this with my own money! 

Lots of Love,

PetitVour Vegan & Cruelty-Free Beauty-Box || Beauty and the Box | September 2014

Hey guys! I'm so excited to share my first PetitVour Box with you. It's called Beauty and the Box this month!

I really wanted to jump on the beauty-subscription train since BirchBox became popular. I just think the idea of having beauty products to try each month for $10-15 bucks is amazing! If you're a beauty junkie you know what I mean!

Around the time BirchBox became popular I decide to go vegetarian and then I decided to explore cruelty-free makeup, so BirchBox wasn't an option. Then I discovered the lovely Tashina from LogicalHarmony and when she partnered with Petit Vour, I knew Petit Vour would be the one.

So this is the September Petit Vour Box, co-created by Logical Harmony! It's $15 a month (free shipping in the US) or you can get a 3-month subscription for $45.00, 6-months for $ 90.00, etc. 

 Don't get me started on how awesome I think it is that a fellow blogger is part of this! It just makes me ooze with happiness! Also, I'm really itching to try another box, I'm thinking VeganCuts!  

(Upper Left: LVX 5 Free Nail Lacquer in "Lolli", Upper Right: Ellovi Tinted Lip Butter, Lower Left: Yarok Leave-In Conditioner, Lower Right: Roots Science Skincare ) 

My box came with four goodies! Remember that not all boxes are the same, you might get different products than me. 

1. LVX Nail Lacquer in "Lolli" : Value: $16.00
I was so beyond excited when I opened the box and saw that I got a nail polish! I've been on a big nail polish kick as of late. 
I've had a chance to try this guy (I got the box three days ago) and I have mixed feelings.
I love that fact that it's a VEGAN nail polish! It's a gorgeous "cotton-candy" pink. A color I normally wouldn't pick out for myself but I really love it on. It makes my hands look feminine. It needs at least two (I prefer three) coats for an opaque application. The main reason I'm not 100% in love is because it chips pretty quickly. The picture above was taken 12ish hours after I applied it. I've been having bad luck with nail polish lately. 

2. YAROK Leave-In Conditioner: Value: $13.20
This is really good for your hair because it has vitamins, minerals and essential oils. I've only sprayed this twice so I can't give a lot of opinions about it. I will say that it made my hair feel super smooth right away. I also like that it's a very nice sized sample! I'm super excited to continue using this one!

3. Roots Science SkinCare: Value: (Full-Size) $49.00-59.00
This guy is the most intriguing of the bunch. It's a type of face wash/mask. It's made with organic cold pressed minerals which are supposed to detoxify your skin. I have not tried this and so I'm telling you what I know about it if from the little card that lists all the products I received in my box. It has its own card with instructions. I'm really excited to try this! 

4. ellovi Tinted Lip Butter: Value: $5.00
I have had a chance to try this one and I'm really liking it. What can I say I adore lip products. It has a slight, slight tint which comes from " the red root of a Mediterranean flower called askant". It smells a bit chocolately to me. It's nice! I'm really enjoying it! It's only made with 6-ingredients. 

The entire box's value is ~ $83.20 !

I'm so happy I decide to try this & overall I'm quite in love.

I hope you enjoyed reading this! Leave me feedback if you'd like!
Lots of Love,
