T just GETS me, you know??!! (plus she accidentally told me what she got me for Christmas....OMG y'all I can't wait for December now!!)
The Cabana Glama palette is currently on SALE at Ulta for $19, and on the Benefit Cosmetics website, for $18. This adorable palette is packaged in a box with magnet closure, and the cardboard insert that holds the makeup is removable, making the box perfect for storing vacation souvenirs or whatnot in it.
I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, "Jamie, why do you want a SUMMER palette in the fall?" The answers are simple- 1- It's on sale, and most likely being phased out. Must. Have. All the pretties. 2- I am seriously in LOVE with Hoola bronzer, and this kit has a half size of the bronzer in it, among other items. 3- The packaging is so stinking cute! 4- I live in a beach community. Yes, we have all four seasons, and yes, it is getting cold, but a fresh, tanned, beachy look never goes out of style here.

Hoola is a favorite product of mine (along with many, many, many others!) and is the bronzer that I use almost every day. Last week, I hit pan on my Hoola bronzer, and the timing of this was perfect! The pan enclosed in this palette is half size, and the little brush is adorable, super soft, and does a nice job. The brush size is perfect for contouring- you can create a very skinny line by using the brush sideways! I love, love, love Hoola- but a word of caution- use a light hand because this is SO pigmented!
Posietint is the first stain product that I had ever used. This gives it a soft place in my heart. The soft pink glow I get when I use this is just so youthful, and fresh- it's a great cheek color for a natural look! Posietint dries fast, so you must blend it in fast, or you will look like you drew kitty wiskers on your face. I may or may not speak from personal experience. Posietint can be used on both the cheeks and the lips, but I've not had great luck with this as a lip stain. I think the problem is that I have freckles on my lips (yes. really.). When the stain darkens my lips, it also darkens my freckles and makes them look (at least to me) weird. It's a prefect cheek stain, though, and the cute little bottle is the perfect pocket-sized product!
|Here is the always gorgeous Tween Angel rocking this look- as you can see, the foundation is too dark for her, but other than that, I think she looks beautiful!|
If you would like to see my unboxing of this product, it's in my daily vlog post, below. If you don't want to see all my daily adventures, fear not- it's pretty early on, and you can see the look we created for KTweenAngel with it, all within (I think) the first five minutes. But, you should watch the whole thing, because we had a lot of fun at the park, and my kids are beautiful. Just saying.
Until next time, my lovelies- stay Average!
