Make Up For Ever Artist Palette For August 2014

Make Up For Ever Artist Palette For August 2014 - $48.00 Canadian
So I've been naughty again and picked up more since I've been on a bit of a blogging hiatus you guys have not seen all of the makeup that I've been buying lately but trust me I have quite a few new posts coming up and I am definitely a little ashamed about how much makeup I've been buying lately. Anyways when I saw Temptalia's post showing this palette I just knew I had to have it! I had been looking at the Kat Von D Monarch and Chrysalis palettes and I really wanted both, but when I saw this it reminided me of the palettes because it included a gorgeous bronzy orange monarch colour and the gorgeous purples that are similar to the ones in the Chrysalis palette; so I just knew I had to have this one! The colours all looked absolutely gorgeous and seemed to work perfectly together.

Now the palette contains 8 shades with only one of them being matte. The first 4 shades are more neutral where as the second 4 are much more vibrant and metallic. The formulation of these shadows are on point and are super pigmented and opaque. I watched Tarababyz's video where she hauled this palette and she described these shadows as being "thick" and I agree with that description. I'm not sure of another way to describe these shadows other than to say that they are thick and buttery, I absolutely love the texture.

Lush Shark Week Shark Fin Soap

I have been a huge shark lover ever since I was a kid. I've always loved swimming and the ocean and I have always dreamed of scuba diving and cage diving with sharks. I'm a pisces so maybe that's why I have such an affinity for the ocean and sea life but it has been a passion of mine forever. Now as I am older I have realized that our oceans are in danger along with the sharks...

Where have I been...???

Hey everyone, I know its been a long time and I am super sorry that I've been so MIA! Anyways I'm back and hopefully its for good.

To say the least 2014 has been a trying year for me and this summer has probably been one of my worst. This year I finished high school so the entire month of June so I was really burdened down with school. Then I was on holiday for the first two weeks of July one week in the Dominican and the second in New York. I have also been doing an online course which actually happened to finish today which I'm really happy about. But I think the worst thing that I've faced this summer was the death of my Grandfather, it was a really hard time for my family and I, but I find some comfort and solace in the fact that he is no longer suffering or in any pain. 

Anyways bad news aside; I definitely know that I will be back into blogging because I finally got my new MacBook Pro (hallelujah) and now that I'm in university I have my classes spaced out so I'll have a bit more time hopefully! I hope you guys will be looking forward to my upcoming posts which will be coming soon.

On a brighter note I hope you all have had an amazing summer and got some time for rest and relaxation! 

XOXO Gaborillaa ;D
