I recently purchased the Lorac Holiday set called The Royal Collection. I know that many people are waiting for the Lorac Mega palette. I, myself would love to have it too. The Royal Eye Shadow collection however is just as wonderful to have. It is an Ulta exclusive, you get 4 palettes that have 4 eye shadows each, 16 eye shadows in all. This product has a value of $103.00 and you can buy it for $38.00, that is a savings of $65.00
The first of the four palettes is called Queen. It has four shadows a highlight shade, a champagne, a burgundy that reads almost brown, and a matte black. Of the four palettes this has one shade that on fairer skin is hard to see. The shadows are all pigmented and creamy, little to no fall out. If you like the Pro palettes then you will love these shadows.
The second palette is the Countess palette. This palette has a hunter green theme. It has a highlight shade, a tan, light brown and a matte hunter green shadow. I love how pigmented the matte shadows are in this collection. Again the shadows are creamy and don’t have a lot of fall out. Perfect for fall.
The third palette is called the Princess Palette. This palette is my favorite. It is the gold theme of the collection. You get a highlight, gold, bronze, and a darker bronze shade. This is the only palette that does not have a matte shade, but considering the quality of the shadows I really don’t mind the lack of the matte shade. This palette is perfect for the everyday natural look as well as it is perfect for fall and the upcoming holiday season.
The last palette of the collection is the Duchess palette. This palette is the coolest of the palette and has a silver, navy blue them to it. You get a white, light silver, a darker silver that has a satin finish and a matte navy blue. I have to say it again that the matte shades in this palette are wonderful.
This 16 shade collection is wonderful it has warm shades and cool shades. The pigmentation is wonderful. I like how easily the apply and blend. This collection is perfect for the fall, but it is also perfect for everyday and evening looks. I think for $38.00 this is a steal. You can keep all four of the palettes for yourself or you can take them apart and gift the different palettes as stocking stuffers.

Well it has finally happened, I have finally graduated and I can now spend more time on my blog and I will be able to start my YouTube channel…. I am so excited. Thank you all for being so patient! Your support means the world to me. The next couple of blog post will be review on the new smashbox palette and the it cosmetic palette. Once again thank you for all your support.
I can’t believe that on October 24th I will have graduated from cosmetology school. It has been a long process. Tomorrow I start on the floor being able to do all services! I can now do hair, skin, and nails! There was a point at the beginning of this year where I was wishing I could just quit school. Then I realized no matter where you go to cosmetology school there will be drama, it’s basically a drama filled environment. I am now glad that I kept going and strives for the best. After I graduate my main focus will be on blogging and I think at that point and time I will set up my YouTube channel. Dreams do come true and when followed they pay off.
Thanks for taking time to read this. I will be doing my August favorites next week. I hope that your all doing well. If there is ever anything you would like to see a blog post about please let me know. Please like and subscribe!
Hello everybody! Again I want to say that if my blog gets 25 followers I am going to do a give away! I am so super excited about that!!!!!! Also I am thinking I will start a YouTube account!!!! Now onto my monthly favorites.
My favorite foundation has been the Rimmel Stay Matte foundation. It’s medium to heavy coverage, it applies smoothly and evenly and it lasts all day long! I give this a 9 on a 1 to 10 scale ( 10 being the best). I also love how affordable it is!!!!
I am also loving the Rimmel Match Perfection concealer. It is heavy coverage and doesn’t leave my skin feeling dry. It last for a full 8 hour work day…… I am in fair/light, but the fair one works as an amazing highlight for me. I would give this product an 8.
I have been loving this L’Oréal Infallible in Bronzed Taupe. I will wear it all over my lid or in my crease depending on the look I am going for. I love all the Infallibles but this one is my second favorite. My number one favorite is Iced Latte. I would recommend this product to everyone. I give it a 10.
This has been my go to blush. It’s Maybelline’s Master Hi Light by Facestudio. This color in Pink Rose is amazing on my skin tone, but I also believe this would be gorgeous on darker skin tones. It is pigmented and applied well, I give this product a 7.
I absolutely love Wet November Wild’s matte lipsticks. They don’t dry your lips out, they are creamy and very opaque and pigmented! The price of $1.99 is awesome to! I also love how they usually last all day! My favorite is 903c Just Peachy. Give them a try!!!!!! I give this product an 8.
For my skin, right before I put on my foundation I give my face a couple of squirting of Dermalogica’s Ultra Calming Mist toner. It evens out my skin making for a smoother application of make up. After a few days you’ll notice a huge difference in your skin! I also apply this to my face when it feels itchy, or aggrevated. I also put this on a new sunburn to take the sting out!!!! Highly recommend that you go and get a facial and then try this out! I give this product a 9. You can also put this on after you apply your make-up and it then works as a setting spray.
I finally got me a Nyx product. Well I got 5 of the butter glosses but Creme Brule is by far my favorite. I love the formula, texture, pigmentation, smell, everything. In my opinion these are the best lip glosses out there. I give them a 10.

Leave me a comment if you have any blog ideas or products that you want reviewed! Again thank you so much for taking your time to read my blog!!!!
Well here it is in the middle of June, I cannot even believe that. I have been going from schools to meetings for the last two weeks that I have no sense of time. Lots has been going on here in the wonderful state of Colorado. We are currently preparing for the Independence Stampede. I do security for the event. I usually end up working 12 to 14 hour days. I love it though.
School is going fast and furious…. I have 21 weeks of school left! I have to admit that I am very excited! I can’t wait till I am licensed and able to be out there doing what I love professionally! I have taken a look back at my experiences in cosmetology school and I have some tips that I want to share so I think that I will be doing a blog about cosmetology school soon!
Lap-band is a process that is for sure. For those of you who don’t know the lap-band is a device placed on the stomache to help with weight loss. Many people get the lap-band for different reasons. I got mine for medical reasons. I have 4 crushed disks and it is extremely hard for me to loss weight the old fashion way. I had the surgery on December 5th and have lost about 80 pounds. I now have a gym membership and am working on getting bigger results.
Update on the give away…. I really want to do a give away for my readers, I want to give back, I think that it will be beauty related, and will be completed on July 15th. I am currently working on the rules of the give away, and trying to figure out exactly when I am going to start the give away and how I really want to do it!
