I know, it's been forever since I updated. I've been terribly busy - my birthday was this past Thursday and I spent about 4-5 days just celebrating. Plus, work has been frantic.
Luckily, I've acquired a ton of new eyeshadow lately, and I've made a promise to myself to blog more often, so...let's hope for the best!
Today I bring you the newest Sephora Beauty Insider 500pt gift: the Too Faced Catwalk Collection. This set features a Too Faced Glamour to Go palette, with a mini Too Faced Shadow Insurance and a mini Too Faced Lash Injection Pinpoint mascara.
The palette is really quite nice; I was expecting shitty quality, but I was blown away by it! The eyeshadows are extremely pigmented (of course, my Blackberry doesn't take the best pictures) and the blush and lip colors are lovely. The palette is very neutral and perfect for every day - there are two or three shadows that can really punch up a look: a lightly glittery black, a color that looks chartreuse but is really a very yellow gold, and this gorgeous iridescent pink that seems duochrome (it flashes purple and green). This is really the perfect travel palette.

For my EOTD today (which I had like two minutes to do), I swept the the bottom left color (a shimmery pink-beige) from last to brows. Then I added the light silvery taupe color (second from right on the top row) to my lids, and the warm brown (top left) in my crease. I used my Maybelline Natural Smokes quad to line my lids and fill in my brows. Simple and quick, but pretty! My look was finished with mascara, blush, and one of the shimmery glosses in the palette. I highly recommend this!
