February is almost over and I’m sitting here like WOT. Test season is not far off. But the end of the month is also inspiration for a favourites blog! I have one beautiful palette to tell you guys about!
*dun dun dun*
The amazing #GLOWGASMPALETTE from the wonderful babes over at Swiitch Beauty. They ran a Valentines special and this baby was R100 off. It was practically a steal so I HAD to get it. When it arrived I was shocked at how much of each shade was in the palette. The lighter colours did scare me, but the product is marketed to suit all shades, so I figured why not give ’em all a go?
How beautiful are these shades?? Ever since purchasing my Colourpop highlighter I have just loved adding that sparkle to my face. I worried that this palette was too good to be true. I was so wrong. I decided to try a different shade out each day for 6 days. Yes, that meant I was putting in so much of effort for campus everyday. That part was hard when I had 8am lectures, but it turned out to be quite fun actually. Playing dress-up sort of motivated me to go to all classes so I wouldn’t be wasting my makeup!
Here my looks Tuesday through Sunday…
I hope my glow is super visible in these pics! I used the shades in the weirdest order, so the picture matches the position of the shade on the palette. There are 5 powder shades and 1 creme shade. #5 was the creme one and didn’t sit on and suit my skin too well, so I just blended #2 over it and it ended up looking so good! I felt incredible this week, all thanks to these gorgeous highlighters! I wish I could pick a favourite! I see myself agonising over which shade to apply. EVERYDAY 😦
I do encourage every makeup obsessed person to get themselves this palette. It’s so worthwhile and so pigmented and it truly suits all shades! I’m probably going to hold onto this for a looong time! (And I may just start putting in as much effort, into how I look everyday, as those commerce kids!)
Here’s to everyone having a productive and happy week ahead…
