The Look: Beachy Day (Unforgettable Moments Eye Kit)

Payless ShoeSource: Unforgettable Moments Eye Kit★Beachy Day★Soft Petals★Golden Kiss

I love these palettes $7.99 each @ Payless Shoes. The each feature two matte and two frosty colors as well as two cream eyeliners which are as richly pigmented as the eye shadows. All three of them are wonderful and favorites of mine. I was soo surprised at the quality and they blend beautifully. Don't miss out on these fabulous palettes.

Barry M Shocking Pink Meets M.A.C Candy Yum Yum

Is Barry M Shocking Pink Lipstick a dupe for M.A.C's Candy Yum Yum or is Candy Yum Yum a dupe for Shocking Pink? Shocking Pink is more fuchsia and more matte and also more wearable, where Candy Yum Yum is more of a fuchsia pink and creamy and retro. Both equally bright and bold.

Forever 21: Natural by love & beauty

This is a large palette 9inches long and 3inches wide! It features a nice size mirror, a creamy pigmented black eyeliner and a eyeshadow applicator. I call it a double sided applicator which features a sponge and a brush. As far as pigmentation the darker shadows indeed are and a few of the satin finish ones, but the matte shadows disappoint. This palette has 10 shadows at 0.03 oz. And 0.92 grams each. They are cruelty free and of course neutral. An except able dupe for Urban Decay's Naked Palette which I do not have. Moving along I do like the black eyeliner although a bit odd for this palette I think it should have been brown considering the color choices. But I am not a fan of brown liner anyway so it's not a terrible choice. The applicator inside is useless.
Rating: 5 out of 5
Pigmentation: 4 out of 5
Packaging: 5 out of 5
Price: 5 out of 5 ($6.80)

The packaging is abit much for me, I cannot see being able to travel daily with this, maybe if you want to take it along for a trip. But not for everyday throw in your purse and go. Although it seems sturdy enough, the packaging is made of some sort of cardboard paper. The back of the palette features ingredients, batch code, and the expiration date. 09/14. And I have lots of product so I better get started.
Above is a eyeshadow look I did using this palette, the colors blend together beautifully. This is a great affordable palette to have for the amount of product you get, and the many shadows available to play around with.
