"Thank you for loving me when I still tasted of heartache and war."
- Nikita Gill
Oh my lawd.... Hello! It has been so very long. Too long. And I've missed you all more than I could possibly say.
On a positive note, being away for so long means I have been trying a crapload of products so... I'll be doing a favorites for sure soon and all kinds of thangs. As always, leave me recommendations on products you'd like reviews or looks on!
Sedona Lace was gracious enough to send me their Mermaids Palette when it was first released and I've been playing with it for months!
The shades are SO beautiful!
Here is the first row:
Nixie is a beautiful peach shade with a slight sheen to it.
Sybil is a gorgeous midtoned pink. It's more on the satin side than a matte.
Beatrice is a satin pink.
Azalea is a matte red. You know I'm all about this shade! It's so rich.
Pearl is a really beautiful pastel blueish almost purple. It's very unique to my collection. Also more on the satin side.
Mishell looks much darker in the pan than it does swatched. A purple satin.
Melody is a beautiful cool toned blue.
Lola is a deep purple that looks more navy on my skin tone.
Madison is a pastel green.
Diana is a matte ocean blue.
Ariel is a matte green.
Zale is a beautiful turquoise. Definitely one of my favorites in the palette!
Meryl is a satin white shade with a beautiful sheen, perfect for highlighting the inner corner or brow bone.
Sedna... Oh how beautiful is this one?! Quite possibly the prettiest in the palette. A turquoise packed with pigment. Matte!
Andrina is a matte rich blue.
Oona is a classic matte black. It takes a bit of building up to get it richly black.
This palette is a stunner. The shades are all consistent throughout. Some can be slightly powdery but that's expected for the pigment.
I love this palette and I find myself reaching for it often. If I'm looking for a specific random shade that isn't in any of my other palettes, I can almost always find it in here. Whether it's a natural look using Nixie (a recent favorite lately - all over the lid?! Gorgeous.) or a dramatic look using the blues and greens, it always comes out beautiful.
The Mermaids Palette is $29.95 and be sure to use the coupon code: themakeupaffair for a few dollars off!
This palette was sent to me by the company but I receive no other compensation and you guys know you will always get my honest opinion on all products.
If you'd like a look using this palette, let me know!
I’d love to hear from you!❤
