Lorac Pro Palette

Hi guys! Yesterday I went to Ulta & picked up a new "toy"! I got the Lorac Pro Palette. It is an eyeshadow palette with 8 matte shades & 8 shimmer shades. I heard about this palette about a month ago & couldn't get it out of my mind. I needed this like a hole in my head. But let's face it, makeup is not really about need. For me it's all about want! Plus I had a gift card left over from my birthday! I figured this was the best way to spend it! 

Along with the palette, you get a small tube of the Lorac Behind the Scenes Eye Primer.

Top Row: White, Cream, Taupe, Light Pink
Bottom Row: Nude, Champagne, Gold, Light Bronze

Top Row: Mauve, Sable, Espresso, Black
Bottom Row: Pewter, Garnet, Deep Purple, Slate

I've only had this for one day but I already love it! I think this is a great neutral palette, and at $42 it is a little cheaper that the Urban Decay Naked palettes. I love the range of matte & shimmer shades. This really has all you need. I used Gold, Garnet & Sable to create a beautiful autumn inspired look. Today I'm wearing Champagne & Mauve for a simple light look. I'm really loving Mauve! It's what I hoped Tease from Naked 2 would be. The shadows are so soft & creamy & really nice to work with. If you passed on either of the Naked palettes, this might be worth checking out. You can buy the Lorac Pro Palette at Ulta & Sephora.

NOTD - Triangle Nails

Hi everyone! Today I'm wearing the trendy new triangle manicure. I've been seeing this lately & wanted to give it a try. I really love it & it's so easy! You just need two colors & some tape :) You can do this design on every nail, but I decided on just two accent nails. You can also vary the size of your triangle. Just place two strips of tape criss-crossed over your nail to create a triangle & paint. Then remove the tape & you have perfect little triangles :)

I chose one of the new fall colors from Essie called Miss Fancy Pants, with Wet N Wild Ebony Hates Chris. I'm loving this new essie color, it's a warm gray, perfect for fall. This is my second time wearing this color & I've only had it a week!

So, what do you think of the triangle nail?
