Christmas Beauty Gifts

I received a couple really cool beauty gifts for Christmas this year. I will be showcasing some pictures and I will update you later with my full review.

1. Urban Decay Sustainable Eyeshadow Palette
Initial thoughts: Cute packaging! Love the eco friendly aspect, I question the functionality of the packaging and will probably keep this in the plastic container so the shadows last longer and it has a little more protection if I drop it! These are true to all Urban Decay shadows and palettes, they are highly pigmented and creamy (the only color that I had some trouble with with VZI which is the sparkly silver color). This also comes with a mini Urban Decay Primer Potion and an eyeshadow brush. I love the design on the Bamboo packaging.

2. Stila Ultimate Color Palette
Initial Review: This is a great usable palette that includes 39 eye shadows, 15 lip colors, 4 cheek colors, 4 applicators, and 4 lip brushes. I think the palette design is more practical than the Dream in Color Palette which has more of a star shaped design which is pretty, but also makes some shadows very tiny sized. These shadows are true to other Stila shadows and palettes, the colors are beautiful, they are creamy, and have great color pay off. I love the colors in this. The lip colors aren't dry and are easy to apply and are beautiful colors as well.



This would be a great palette to travel with. It is larger than most palettes you would take on the go, but it basically contains almost everything you would need and is great to pack if you aren't quite sure what you are going to be doing, wearing, etc. This will have every color you would ever need on a trip! Thanks mom and dad! :) 



What did you get for Christmas?
