Sephora Must-Have: Color To Go Red edition palette
Let me tell you, I'm sick of this no buy. It was really only supposed to be until BoS3 came out, which it did, today. So I'm in the clear from now on. Yesterday at Sephora, I wanted to get something small, and they had these cute little Color To Go palettes. I got the Red edition, but I also thought the other one was cute (the purple was similar to UD's Fishnets!), and I'll probably get it next time. I am a sucker for a set. And for only $15, I'm not exactly breakin' the bank here. I don't know why Sephora makeup gets such a bad rep- the 2 Sephora brand liners I have are great, my little face scrublet is great, and this set is great. I would say that although it's the same type of product as the Too Faced Glamour To Go set, the quality is actually better, and $5 less! It's about the same size as my Glamour To Go palette, but the lippies and blush pull out from the side instead of the bottom. Thanks Blogger for flipping my picture...do you see why I found this irresistible? Look at the great fall colors! The shadows are pretty and pigmented. The dark blue matte was kind of a PITA, in typical matte fashion. The blush is heavily swatched in those pictures, but even with just one swipe it's very pigmented (ie, easy to overdo it if you have lighter skin). I was really surprised at the pigmentation of the lippies, since most lippies in palettes tend to suck. Here's a smokey eye look I did today using the palette. My blush and lip color are also from the palette. If you are addicted to sets, like me, this one's a fall necessity!
