♥Warm Tone Eyeshadows♥ Part 2

The next warm tone eyeshadow palette I want to talk about is the Too Faced Peanut Butter & Jelly palette! I traveled to Brazil last summer and took this with me! It's small size, mirror, and color/finish selection made it a perfect choice to take.


The mirror inside could be bigger, but it gets the job done. I also love the smell of chocolate of the shadows...I don't pick up a big peanut butter scent in this.  The scent is different from the Chocolate Bar palette but similiar.


I love every color in this palette.  There is a great mix of finishes in here too so you have everything you need to make a complete look. Nothing bothers me more than a palette that doesn't have transition colors!!


As you can see from the pictures below these colors are warm and beautiful! Some of them did require that I go in and swatch more than one layer to show full pigmentation. These shadows aren't the creamiest to the touch, but they apply wonderfully on the eyes.


Make sure you follow my blog so you don't miss future posts! What's your favorite color in this palette? What other warm tone palettes do you think I need to try?

Write an awesome beauty blog?



After being so inactive here on the blog for sooo many years, I am trying to get back into the swing of things. I hope you've checked out my last two posts and enjoyed them! I really love blogging and missed it so much! I went through my reading list and noticed most of the 200 blogs (wow!) I was following have either been deleted or have been inactive for years and years.  So I decided it was a good time to start fresh! I unfollowed all those blogs,except one (we'll come back to this in a minute).  

 So if you write an awesome beauty blog, I'd love to check it out and support each other! Leave your blog in the comments below and I will check it out!  

My sweet friend, Annie, from the AnnieDollFace---is the only blog I am currently following.  She is a sweetie pie and I LOVE her blogs---but she's also currently inactive. =(  But we follow each other on Instagram and are Facebook friends and I think it would be really awesome if you guys went to her blog and left her a message asking her to return to blogging! I think it would tickel her pink and maybe give her a little nudge to come back! What do y'all think? I'd love to update this with an alert title "We got Annie!" (10 points for you if you get that reference!)



♥Warm Tone Eyeshadows♥ Part 1

As a teacher, you know I love summers! Especially since we recently welcomed our 4th child, and 1st son, just a few weeks ago! Summer time also means that I have time to blog! I miss it a lot and am going to try to start posting a lot more content here.  If you have any requests, please let me know in the comments below! 

Let's get to it! Warm tone shadows, which are my favorite year round if I'm being honest.  Warm colors have been my hands down favorite for years.  So this week I'll be posting each day one of my favorite warm tone/summer palettes! Here's the first one!



This is my smaller Sephora Zpalette. (Side note: I will not be purchasing anymore Z palettes due to their founder's recent comments on Instagram. Google it if you want the disgusting details.) You can see that some of the colors look similiar, but their finishes are different. Any "true makeup lover" will tell you that they are different! 


The swatches on the right are with flash and the ones on the left are without flash.  I feel like the flash really washes out the picture.   I can make so many looks with the palette and I have a lot of fun trading out pans with my other Z palletes to create my perfect custom palette! 

Somehow I forgot to swatch MUG Poppy--but it's amazing! You can get the color in the pan on your eye or use less for a lighter wash of the color.  The MUG eyeshadows were hands down were the most creamy to the touch with a few exceptions.  Corrupt, and Cherry Cola aren't as creamy as the other MUG shadows, but they are still very pigmented and blend well.  They just take a little more product to be fully pigmented. 


My MAC shadows in here are getting pretty old at this point and I am trying to use them up this year.  I have others in another palette that I'm also trying to get through. I had to swatch Vanilla several times to get it to show up in the swatch.

My Urban Decay shadow is also getting pretty old too.  I had to swatch it several times to get it to show up also.  It's a beautiful color, but I won't be repurchasing it.  Same goes for the MAC shadows too. I just don't think the quality is that good compared to what else is available on the market today.  Makeup Geek shadows are amazing! I would also like to try the Colour Pop pressed shadows too.  And I still have yet to try any Coastal Scents Hot Pots, which I've heard you can get for .99 on sale!  If you have any that you would recommend, let me know in the comments.
