Palettes for a Girl on the Go

Hello! I’ve taken a mini vacation this week and traveled up north to see J. Cole in concert! Giving my over-packing self a back seat, I tried to pack light this trip. Yes, I forgot my jean jacket in the midst of this, but that’s another story. As I grabbed my typical day-to-day makeup bag: mascara, Glamophlauge concealer, brow kit, face makeup, brushes and 4 lipsticks: nude, magenta, deep bold mahogany and classic red, I knew I didn’t have much room for eyeshadows. I grabbed my favorite two palettes and want to share them with you. These may be familiar to you… I can’t help but write about products right when I get them! Trust me, though. These are the best I’ve seen!

The Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette is my all-time favorite. To start, it has a wide range of colors, more than half of them being stable neutrals suitable for day or night looks. Second, the palette actually smells like chocolate, (yum!). When smoothing these shadows on my lids I can’t help but inhale deeply. While in San Fran, I’ve used this palette for hikes, day lunches and dinners. White chocolate is my favorite as it’s the ultimate base color. Salted caramel is my second favorite because it’s a warm, orangey color which works well for day or night looks. It warms up the eyes, looking great with a bronzey gold shadow or a deeper color for a night on the time.

At $39 the Smashbox Mini Palette is a complete steal. Complete with deeper shades, a few neutral tones and blush/ bronzer the palette can’t get much better than this! Although I usually reach for the enchanting scent of the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette, I can’t resist this honey bronzer that sculpts my cheekbones and the shimmery high lights that bring out the apples of my cheeks.

So, if you’re looking for a new palette, I highly suggest you turn to these versatile babies. You won’t regret it!
