Unisex1 Eyeshadow Palette✮Product Name✮

✮Review✮ I got this little, well it's not little, it's actually pretty big, palette from a seller on Mercari. It looked interesting and the price was reasonable so I purchased it. I did a little research on the palette and found that it was available on Amazon and has two sister palettes. This is the first palette in the series. I was pleasantly surprised by this palette. Extremely pigmented, although it does throw off some kick up. I love the color story and the shimmers are very nice as well. For the price I paid for this palette, I feel like I came out the winner and additionally, the pan sizes are massive.

✮Rate✮ 8/10 Packaging could be a little more original.

✭Rotate✮ I just did a sweep of my affordable collection, and this made the cut!

Kylie Purple Eyeshadow Palette✮Product Name✮

✮Review✮ I wasn't expecting to really like this palette but I was more than pleased. My favorite part of this palette besides the theme of purple's, was the top left corner shade, which was so damn beautiful I couldn't stand it. I am not a Kylie fan because, well, frankly I'm not her demographic, but my brown eyes love this purple palette.

✮Rate✮ 8.75/10 I am not a fan of of the price. I think her products in general are over priced. This is a great little palette, but the price isn't for me. 

✭Rotate✮ Keeping this one!

Zoeva Opulence Eyeshadow Palette✮Product Name✮

✮Review✮ I think Zoeva makes some excellent products. The palettes are affordable and the color story is easy to follow and makes sense to the consumer. Here's the problem....a great majority of their palettes look too much a like, reference this palette and the one below. I enjoyed using these palettes but there was nothing spectacular about the quality that makes me want to keep them in my collection.

✮Rate✮ 6/10 These palettes are nice. They are great for beginners but they are nothing against colourpop or Juvia's Place. I went through all my Zoeva palettes and got rid of these of them. I kept this ok next but I am selling Offline on Mercari and Poshmark in a bunch bundle. 

✭Rotate✮ Of my 6 Zoeva palettes I kept four, and this was one if them.

Blush in Pink Rose & Estee Lauder Bronzer✮Product Name✮

✮Review✮ (a)  I hated this blush. Horrible color. Very powdery. Crappy packaging and that's pretty much all I have to say. (b) This bronzer was from holiday 2016 and I pulled it out of my mother's makeup collection. Beautiful application and great for those of us with medium to tan skin. A real treat!

✮Rate✮ (a) 2/10 (b) 9/10

✭Rotate✮ This blush is being passed along to charity and the bronzer is staying with me!

Marc Jacobs The Vamp Eyeshadow Palette✮Product Name✮

✮Review✮ I am a big fan of Marc Jacob's. This palette is comprised of their older formulation, which I quite enjoy. I have several of these style palettes. This is a perfect palettes for fall/winter but so sad that you can no longer purchase it unless you look on a secondary market. 

✮Rate✮ 8/10 Love this palette and love the sleek design, however several of these palettes don't close because the clasp is broken. Major inconvenience. 

✭Rotate✮ This one is staying put!
