Review Kat Von D Eye Shadow Palette in Saint

 Hell again all-
This review is one that I was excited to do. I have been using this palette almost every day since i purchased it.  I was at Sephora inside JCPenny's and I was wandering around and then went up to check out.  As I was waiting to check out this palette caught my eye.  As you know I have been loving a pink and brown eye, so when I saw thee colors and the pink in the palette I thought I would give t a try.  And boy am I glad i did.  This palette is so smooth and the color are so easy to work with.  I love that a few of the colors are great colors for a one color and done look.  However when you use them together they just come together great!
I wish that they had single shadows or that she came out with more palettes with more neutrals, because the smoothness of these is just amazing. Pigmentation is great too they actually go on looking like what you see in the palette.  The second color in from the left is the most amazing highlighter and I grab for it all the time now.  The right amount of shimmer and reflection with out being to glittery!
If you haven't given this one a try yet and you are a neutral girl- I say give it a try you may be surpassed like me.
Here are some swatches and a close up of the palette.

Her is slink to a face of the month where I actually use this palette- link here

Here are my thoughts:
Pigmentation-  5/5
Texture- 5/5
Longevity- 5/5
Application- 5/5
Packaging- 5/5
Price- 4.5/5
Product Overall- 5/5

Review Shiseido Facial Cotton

Hi again all-
I have always wondered about these cotton pads I guess I would call them.  I have heard so many people RAVE about them.  So when I received some in a deluxe sample from Sephora I was so excited to give it a try.  I usually use the cotton from Costco and I LOVE it, but those have been discontinued or so I have heard.  I hope not- do yang of you know?  When I tried this cotton I hated it right away for many reasons.  It is not stitched together and it feels so weird to me.  This is just my thoughts.  :o(  I was bummed I really wanted to love it, but I didn't.

You can purchase the cotton from Sephora if you are interested.

Please let me know if you have any questions.  

Cheers- 
Lisa

Review Dior Iconic Overcurl Mascara

Hi again all-
I just realized today Sunday that I had never written a post about the mascara review that I posted on Friday.  So here it is now!  :o)  Better late than never right.
I was hesitant to try this mascara since I have been so in love with the Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara.  Plus i had tried the Dior DiorShow one that everyone loves and I just didn't "get it."  However I have heard such great things I had to give it a try.  I purchased it from Sephora and when I got it in I broke it out right away to give it a try.  First impression I am not a curved wand fan usually, but something about this brush works with this formula.  The formula is a thin formula that gives yoiu a fanned like effect with your lashes.  It is very feathery looking.  I don't know how great this would be if you have short lashes but I have fairly long lashes (thanks to Latise- review here) and it does hold a curl better than any others I have tried.  The one issue I had with it (and all Dior mascara's) is that it is hard to remove.  But I use some baby oil and it comes right off.
Since I taped this review I had a Too Faced mascara that broke :o( to return so instead i decided to get another of this instead of a replacement for the TF.
Here are some pictures of this product and brush.


My thoughts overall:
Pigementation- 5/5
Texture- 5/5
Longevity- 5/5
Application- 5/5
Packaging- 4.5/5
Price- 4/5
Product Overall- 5/5

You Can purchase this at the following places:
