Photo Focus Studio Eyeshadow Palette - Milano Collections.

Wet n Wild and the Wet n Wild Fergie line released a range of new products and shades for 2015. You can expect to see swatches and reviews of those new products on my blog or Youtube channel. I have been trying out a few of the products and I am loving them so far! The first product I decided to share is a current favorite of mine and will definitely be a must-have product to own.

The Wet n Wild Fergie Centerstage Collection introduced two new eyeshadow palettes: Photo Focus Studio Eyeshadow Palettes. There is a smokey eyeshadow palette and a neutral eyeshadow palette. Each palette includes 10 eyeshadows and a dual brush applicator. Today I am sharing the Photo Focus Studio Eyeshadow Palette in Milano Collections, which is the neutral palette.

Wet n Wild Fergie Photo Focus Studio Eyeshadow Palette in Milano Collections

Description: When you've always got a camera pointed at you, every side has to be your best side! This incredible palette of intensely-pigmented shadows comes in a range of textures from translucent highlights to subtle mattes, to shimmering glitters - all of which the camera loves. Its satiny-smooth formula is nylon-treated and jet-milled for ultra-pigmented, crease resistant color that lasts all day so you'll always be studio-ready. Cameras out!

Retail Price: $7.99

Available: Walgreens Exclusive



This eyeshadow palettes feature 10 eyeshadows. I love that this palette has a range of eyeshadow finishes. There are 2 satin eyeshadows with subtle shimmer, 5 shimmery eyeshadows, and 3 matte eyeshadows. Each eyeshadow is nicely pigmented. I was really impressed with the pigmentation!

The packaging is nice and compact. It doesn't take up as much space as other eyeshadow palettes I own. This makes it a lot more easier to store and organize. The size of the palette also makes it travel friendly.

Valentine's Day Makeup Tutorial: Flirty Pink.

Valentine's Day is tomorrow, so I wanted to film a makeup tutorial inspired for the holiday! This makeup tutorial features an eyeshadow look with neutral tones and hints of pink. Adding some glitter or a shimmery pink eyehadow in the tear duct or on the lid will make the look a bit more fun. You can also opt for a bolder pink or red lip color than what I decided to use for this look.

My Favorite Products From 2014.

2014 was a very good year for me beauty-wise! I discovered and tried so many new products and new brands. It was extremely hard choosing which products to feature for My Favorite Products From 2014. Be sure to check out my last Current Favorite Products post, which features more products that I loved during 2014.

Minisuit Selfie Stick Pro: This little device makes taking selfies so much easier! You can turn it multiple angles and it expands up to 3.5 feet, One of my favorite features with the Selfie Stick Pro is the built-in remote. It's available here and it's currently on sale for $17.95.


Be sure to watch the video for more of my thoughts and close ups of each product!

MAC Tranquil Cleanse Off Oil: My favorite product to remove makeup. A little bit goes a long way. This works best to remove lash adhesive, waterproof makeup, and liquid lipsticks.

Silk Elements Straight Edges Edging Gel: I love this gel! Unlike other gels I have used in the past this one does not flake or develop that awful white buildup I hate. It really helps to smooth out my curls.

MAC Studio Face and Body Foundation : I decided to try this out after getting recommendations from Brittany and Beverly. I have the MAC Studio Face and Body Foundation in shade C6. It's lightweight and it's the perfect match for my skin tone. I love the dewy look this foundation gives.

MAC Loose Mineralize Foundation: I normally use this along with my MAC Studio Face & Body Foundation. The shade that I use is Medium Deep. This foundation has a buildable coverage. My skin looks so much smooth and natural when I apply this.

MAC Cream Colour Base in Improper Copper: This is my favorite cream highlighter that I own. It gives the perfect golden glow.

Lisi Glo Liquid Skin Illuminators: I purchased these for $3 from HauteLook. I love to wear these on their own or pair them with a powder highlighter. They provide the perfect glow without being overly shimmery.

MAC Lustre Drops in Sun Rush: I love to wear this as a highlighter and I also like to add a couple drops of these Lustre Drops to my foundation. This is now discontinued.

MAC Iridescent Powder in Golden Bronze: I usually use this along with the liquid and cream highlighters I mentioned up above. I use it as a highlighter and I have used it as a bronzer. This product is also discontinued.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Global Glow: I love using this for a golden bronze glow.

NYX Illuminator in Ritualistic: This highlighter is very similar to NARS Albatross. It gives a golden sheen.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Illuminating Powder Gelée in Crystal Baby: It's a blush, but I do prefer to wear it as a highlighter. This one is the perfect hue of pink.

MAC Mineralize Blush in Warm Soul: This is actually an old favorite of mine that I rediscovered in 2014. This is my favorite blush to wear when I want a peachy, glow to my cheeks.

Milani Baked Blush in Bella Rosa & Delizioso Pink: I normally don't reach for pink blushes, but these quickly became my favorites after receiving them. They are matte finishes and have great pigmentation.

Milani Eyeshadow Primer: This eyeshadow primer really surprised me. I have never experienced any creasing whenever I use this. This is something I will definitely repurchase in the future.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Ebony & Chocolate: I love using these to help shape my brows. It doesn't smudge and it's waterproof.

Coastal Scents Hot Pot Eyeshadows: They are very inexpensive eyeshadows, which makes it easier to try out different finishes and colors. Each eyeshadow I own has great pigmentation.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Catwalk Eye Shadow Palette: This was my go-to eyeshadow palette last year. It has the perfect everyday shades, but also really nice shades for a nighttime look.

Urban Decay Naked 3 Eyeshadow Palette: This palette was a must for me because of the rose gold shades.

L.A. Girl Lipliner Pencils & L.A. Girl Endless Auto Lipliners: I found these to be some of the best drugstore lip liners I have come across. Each shade had a really nice pigmentation and a long-lasting formula.

Jordana Matte Lipstick in Plum Obsession: If you're a fan of plum or purple lipsticks then you need this shade! I love the vanilla scent and pigmentation with this lipstick. The formula reminded me of the MAC Retro Matte formula.

MAC Retro Matte Lipstick in Ruby Woo: A gorgeous bold red lipstick. I always got so many compliments whenever I wore this shade.

MAC Matte Lipstick in Pink Pigeon: I skipped this shade a couple times and I was happy I finally purchased it. It's a bold pink, but it's not too loud for my liking.

MAC Retro Matte Lipstick in All Fired Up: I was such a huge fan of pinky red lipsticks last year and this was one of my favorites to wear.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks: The best liquid lipsticks ever! I absolutely love the formula and pigmentation of these.
