Please let me know if I’ve skipped over some awesome. I have an extensive wish list but feel free to add to it.

That is all.

  1. I love Trax and Amber Lights, they look gorgeous – it’s so nice to see a palette that’s not just Satin Taupe and Woodwinked and other neutrals (as gorgeous as they are) 😛 Ooh, and Expensive Pink is also amazing! 😀

    • Lol thanks. Yeah, I get bored sometimes when watching YouTube and it’s all this neutral and that neutral. To me, purple is the new neutral. I just always end up picking up colours instead of fleshy hues. Maybe one day when I’m 40′ I’ll start slowing down and getting more natural colours.

    • Mmm. I’ll have to research those. I’m pretty sure Sketch and Quarry are on my never ending wish list. :). I’m currently building a blush pallette, but I’ll be sure to pic those three up on my next eye shadow splurge 😉 probably sooner than I should.

    • Do it 😉 I want to expand mine too, but I first have to get some more blushes. These are worth very sent. I would recommend researching colours and making lists of good ones, cause some can be disappointing.
