Happy Monday everyone! I’m on a coffee kick this morning as the result from a busy weekend. I had an amazing time at my step brother’s wedding on Saturday (my feet are still feeling that one) and then spent Sunday playing around with some new makeup that Palladio Beauty sent me. They’re so great that I wanted to share a little about the company since it is new to me, and of course products that I tried!
A quick Palladio Beauty overview: their products are enriched with vitamins and minerals. They use ingredients such as green tea, ginseng, vitamin E, aloe vera, and chamomile. They are cruelty free, and are sold at beauty supply and high-end specialty stores all over the world!
As you know, I’m still all about summer right now, so I loved trying their contour kit and highlighter for a bronzey glow. The Definer Contour & Highlight Palette is honestly really nice, and comes in a compact with three contour and three highlight shades. I used both the bottom left and the bottom middle shades to contour, and the top left to brighten my under eyes. I do wish that the squares were a bit larger to make it easier to get your brush in there, but this is really meant for contouring with a small brush anyways.
The highlighter is their I’m Glowing – Creamy Stick Luminizer. To me, a creamy stick formula like this one gives a different finish than a powder highlight. A stick will give you that wet, dewy look as if your skin is literally glowing. I love that, even if it takes a little more cautious effort to apply and blend. I’ve been using this luminizer for a few days now, adding a tiny bit of powder highlight over the top when I want to really glow. It’s amazing, and I love that it is light enough where it doesn’t remove your foundation when blending.
Last, the Double Agent Lash Extender + Undercover Fiber Booster Mascara! That is a mouthful, but OMG I love it! It has two sides, the first for lengthening and the second for volume. I’m normally very careful with adding multiple layers of mascara. I do not think that super thick, chunky lashes is attractive. Especially in person. But I’m super happy with how well this applied and actually do think that it makes my lashes look bigger.
I have been pretty terrible at trying new products lately, so I’m really happy that they sent these for me to try. That combined with a few recommendations from others has made me want to go out and try ALL THE NEW THINGS! If you want to try any of their products, feel free to use my code below for 15% off!
