Look / Tutorial: Tantalizing Taupe using Palladio

Hey Lovelys!
I've been making some use of my Palladio Herbal eyeshadow quads that I did a post on weeks ago.  For this look / tutorial I used the quad in Tantalizing Taupe.  This is a great neutral palette for everyday wear.

Have you tried this palette?  If so, what do you think?

July Collective Haul

Hey Beauties!
This is a July collective haul post.  These are some things I purchased throughout July and also a swap that I did with CoachbyNicole, who is my friend on youtube and twitter.  You should check her out, she's super sweet!


So CoachbyNicole sent me this HUGE NYX Makeup Artist Kit!  I've used it a few times now and love it.  It has 35 eyeshadows, 3 bronzers, 5 blushes and 5 lipcolors.  This worked great for me when I went out of town.  

I apologize for pictures being washed out!  "/

So.....I've been wanting the Winterberry palette from CoastalScents for such a long time..well because I love purples!!! I finally purchased it when Coastal Scents had it on sale for 40% off.  I just had to snatch it up! I think it ended up being like $11-12.  :) Can we say "GONGA?"

 Along with the Winterberry palette, I purchased the Coastal Scents 28 Neutral palette because it was 33% off.

At Ulta, I purchased the RealTechniques Blush Brush by Samantha Chapman from Pixiwoo.

On twitter, FaceFront cosmetics was hosting a giveaway, which I ended up winning.  I was able to select one eyeshadow pigment from their website as my prize.  I picked "Early Spring."

I finally hit pan on my favorite NYX Blush in "Angel."  I wanted a backup but at Ulta they don't carry that shade (sad face), so I decided to try this one in "Peach." I like Angel a lot more then this one, but it's still a nice color for my fair complexion.

I saw these new Maybelline Eyestudio Master Drama eyeliners at Ulta, so picked up two of them:  
"Bold Brown and Midnight Master."

 I was poking around the Elf section at Target, and noticed their creme/gel eyeliners.  I picked up the one in Metallic Olive.  It looks a metallic olive in the picture but it looks more of a brown when swatched.  I have yet to use it and see how it looks on the eye.  :)

I love the texture and pigmentation of Lorac eyeshadows, so I pick up this limited edition set in TantalEYES.  It also comes with a body bronzer, but I was mostly interested in the eyeshadows.  :)

 I love these colors!
-White with a Gold undertone, Copper, a warm toned Bronze and an Olive Green -

 I've been wanting to try the Milani baked blushes, but I couldn't find them at any of my local stores and I didn't want to make an online purchase for only a couple items.  Last month I ended up finding them at Kmart and also at my nearest Walgreen's, which just started carrying Milani.  I picked up two.

This one is "Dolce pink."  It's pretty pink with a gold shimmer!

This one is "Luminoso" which is a peachy color.  I LOVE this one!  

I found this pack of 3 EOS lip balms on clearance for only $4.99 at Walgreens!

Sally Hansen came out with a new fall collection of their Inta-Dry FastDry Nail Colors.  
I picked up the one in Ruby Red and Bronze Ablaze.

Bronze Ablaze

Puewww that was a lot of stuff!  haha...

If you would like any swatches or reviews on any of these items, please let me know!  :)
