✮✮✮Palette(s) of the Month Series✮✮✮DECEMBER Round Up✮✮✮

How often did I reach for this palette (s)? Why or Why not?

I used both palettes a fair amount for the month of December. I probably would have used them more, but I pulled a ton of palettes last month, so not everything got a fair chance!

Did I enjoy using this/these palette(s)? Why or Why not?

Huge fan of Black Owned Makeup Brands and a huge fan of Coloured Raine. I own all their palettes, and I even have a back up of the Queen of Hearts. These mini palettes were a bit pricey but they sure are worth it. Amazing quality and I really enjoyed using them in December.

Did I rediscover a fondness for this/these palette(s) or did I discover that I was fonder of this/these palette(s) than I realize?

I forgot how much I loved Coloured Raine and after using these palettes, I decided to buy a back up of the Queen of Hearts which was on sale as well as some more single shadows and their ginormous 96 pan magnetic palette. Definitely rediscovered my love for this brand entirely.

If I lost this/these palette(s), would I repurchase?

Absolutely! In a heartbeat!

With this experience and knowledge regarding use of this/these palette(s), what would I do differently (regarding this/these purchases, future purchases of similar products, trends?

I am really coming to understand what I look for in a palette, in terms of color story, quality, brand presence, etc. As many of you know I have an extensive eyeshadow collection, but I beginning to see that I was purchasing items that I either already had dupes of or the quality was inferior to what I already own. Brands like Coloured Raine are the type of companies that I can stand behind because of their quality, customer service, and originality. I am investing more time into curating my very large collection and only buying brands that are worth my worth. Coloured Raine is definitely one of them.

Keep, Declutter, or Probation?

These are all keeps!

Weekly Palette & Product Rotation Series
Starting December 31, 2018, I will begin a new year of Weekly Product & Palette Rotation content. In order to rotate through my palettes in a better and more functional way, I will be choosing one palette from each category I have created in my inventory (Custom, High-End, Small High-End, Large, Luxury, Affordable) every two weeks, and I will select 2 palettes that are new/newer releases that I have not used2 palettes that I have not used that may be older, & 2 palettes that I have already rotated through my collection. Additionally, I will be selecting one to two palette(s) to use all month as a supplemental palette(s) and the 2nd Thursday of the following Month, I will review the 2 palettes I used from the previous month.  That series is called P.O.T.M. ROUND UP. Click HERE  for an example of a previous post. In conjunction with the palettes chosen for each bi-weekly period, I will select a highlighter, bronzer, blush, & face palette, as well as two foundations and 3 single products. Also throughout the rest of the year, I am participating in several Panning Projects, and those products will be used throughout the month as supplements.

Hey Guys! Thanks for checking out my room tour. I am very happy with the way it looks. It is supposed to be a bit childish and girly like a little girl's room. Nothing too fancy in here! I hope you like it!
