Makeup Of The Day: Blue My Mind

Blue used to be one of my favorite eyeshadows to wear years ago, but I haven't worn it as much lately. Blue eyeshadow really makes my brown eyes pop! I was super excited to pick up the ColourPop Mar Eyeshadow Palette because it had gorgeous shades of blue in it. The eyeshadow that caught my eye the most in the Mar palette was Gridlock. Be sure to click here to check out my swatches of the Mar Eyeshadow Palette!

*NEW* Laura Mercier Blush Color Infusion

Laura Mercier recently released a new line of blushes: Blush Color Infusion. This blush is currently available in a total of 10 shades. It's also available in 2 finishes, which are matte or sheen finishes. I'll be sharing 3 of the 10 shades that I was lucky enough to receive.


Description: Blush Colour Infusion is a sheer, buildable and silky-smooth cheek colour that blends seamlessly with skin for the most natural, fresh look. Pure colour pigments feel weightless and apply evenly to skin for a healthy-looking flush of colour that lasts 10 hours. Infused with micro-fine powders, this next-generation formula can build from a diffused, sheer hint of color to a bold colour statement. Designed to layer as flawlessly with liquid or powder makeup as it does on bare skin. Shades range from soft neutrals to vivid pops of color, with finishes ranging from matte to a subtle sheen with hidden pearl, to suit a variety of skin tones and skin types.

Retail Price: $30.00

Purchase From: Laura Mercier - Sephora - Nordstrom

The three shades that I have in the Laura Mercier Blush Color Infusion are Grapefruit, Kir Royal, and Pomegranate.

The blushes are very WOC and brown girl friendly shades!

If you didn't pick up this palette yet then get it during the next restock. You need this palette in your collection! It includes bold shades of orange, but it has a nice balance with the neutral shades. The mattes in the Sol palette perform a lot better than the mattes in the Mar palette.

Check out swatches below of the ColourPop Mar Eyeshadow Palette!



If you're a fan of blues and teals then you need to purchase this palette! It's also a great palette for those who have brown or hazel eyes too. Each shade swatched perfectly fine except for Detour. It was definitely the most patchiest shade out of the 9 eyeshadows. My favorite shades from this palette are Wild One, Gridlock, and My Way.
