Weekly Palette & Product Rotation Series - WEEKS 5 & 6
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.

✮Product Name✮ Tarte Tarteist Pro Eyeshadow Palette

✮Review✮ I purchased this palette a couple of years ago and I really enjoyed but found that it was a little repetitive compared to it's sister palettes, the Tartelette in Bloom and the Tartelette, and I sent it away to a friend. However, I am a eyeshadow hoarder and I repurchased the palette late last year. Since the purchase of the Pro Remix, I figured that pairing these two palettes would be ideal, and it was. I know not everyone is here for Tarte, and that's fine, but if you want to find a brand with quality products all the way around, and eyeshadows that lean on the conservative side, then Tarte is your brand. Each row lines up to create a specific look, and it's very beginner friendly. The packaging is heavy, but not in an obnoxious way, but more so in a safe and travel friendly way. It's an excellent product if your aesthetic is classic neutral.

✮Rate✮ 7/10 This palette is a tad boring, I'll admit that, but it's a solid palette. Classic!

✭Rotate✮ Keeping this one for a while.

✮Product Name✮ Tarte Tarteist Pro Remix

✮Review✮ This palette was meet with some very polarizing opinions and reviews. My feelings about Tarte are very simple.... They play things safe and know their demographic. They are not a brand which you are going to find a bunch of millennials discussing because Tarte isn't marketing to that demographic. Brands like Urban Decay and Too Faced are more millennial specific. They produce trendy, gimmicky products that attract a younger demographic. Tarte markets to mainly middle aged women who are not interested in bold colors and ridiculous metallic shades (even though that's totally my jam). I think this palette it's an excellent crossover from the brand and the shadows are well made and of excellent quality. I call this a win for Tarte. I believe it is supposed to be used in communicati with the Tarteist Pro Anand it does so well.

✮Rate✮ 10/10 Sorry to disappoint you I if you're a millennial but this is a damn good palette.

✭Rotate✮ Nope! Keeping this one!

✮Product Name✮ Lorac Pro 4

✮Review✮ This is a moment that I dread.... When one of my favorite brands produced a palette that I'm not crazy about. Lorac, like Tarte plays things safe for the most part. When this palette dropped, me and like, three other people were checking for it. I'm not being facetious. NO ONE is checking for Lorac. This palette was a huge disappointment. Not in terms of quality, but in terms of upping the anty to compete with other brands. Lorac had an opportunity to do something really amazing here, but they didn't. Dear God this palette is boring. They created something super safe and very uninteresting. The berries theme is in, and Lorac missed the mark on it and didn't capitalize on it. Like I said the quality is amazing. It's just uber boring.

✮Rate✮ 5/10 I hate to do it but I have to be honest. Totally missed the mark.

✭Rotate✮  Thinking about keeping this one as a good neutral palette. Might put this on "palette rotation probation".... Look for a post about this new feature!

✮Product Name✮ Morphe X Kathleen Lights

✮Review✮ Let me be clear...Kathleen Lights was my girl before she dropped the "n" word and since everyone is deaf and dumb and won't speak on it, I will. Stop giving these young ladies (and young men) a pass on shitty behavior, canceling and isolating brands for behavior the industry tolerates, and only speaking on topics that are popular or get you views and clicks. Moving on...I repurchased this palette from a secondary market after I was flooded by Hurricane Harvey. I really enjoyed this palette and was glad I was able to find a seller with one unused in the box! Total score! When I first got this palette, I loved it and used it all the time. It's a decent palette. It's Morphe's old formula and I was ok with that when I had it the first time. Upon using it this time, in this rotation, I figured out this it's a damn neutral palette with a pop of green. Look at the picture, isn't that what it is? Am I wrong? I love the green shade and the on the bottom row, the fourth shadow over (thanks, Morphe for the shade names), the baby poo shade is also one of my favorites. This is a good palette and if you want to jump on Poshmark, Mercari or Depop you could probably find one at a decent price, but it's nothing to jump through hoops for unless you're a collector.

✮Rate✮ 6.25/10  This is based on Morphe's former formula, the unconventional boringness of the palette as well as its extraordinary ordinariness. 

✭Rotate✮ Eventhough this palette is mediocre, I am keeping it as a collector and it's a good palette to travel with.

✮Product Name✮ Makeup Geek Quad

✮Review✮ Everybody leave Marlena the hell alone. She's getting her shit together...kinda. I mean she's trying. Moving forward...I picked this up at my local Target and I was stoked to get it. It's that great Makeup Geek quality that I am fond of, and I think it's a smart move on Marlena's part to make her brand more accessible by moving over to the Target market. It's a good demographic for her and more exposure. I love this little quad. Great for an everyday look. Little to no effort and very little fuss. I really enjoyed it and it's quickly become one of my favorites. 

✮Rate✮ 10/10 Really an excellent move on Marlena's part, great little quad, great price. Total win in my book!

✭Rotate✮ Nope! Keeping this one! Love it!

✮Product Name✮ Make Up For Ever Pro Fusion #2

✮Review✮ I absolutely rediscovered my love for this highlighter. Initially, I didn't like the formulation of the highlighter and didn't really understand how to apply it properly, but upon getting reaquainted, I have really fallen for this particular highlighter and I am going to continue using it into the next rotation.

✮Rate✮ 10/10

✮Product Name✮ Too Faced Born This Way Foundation. Hourglass Vanish, 
Lancome Teint Idole, NYX Angel Veil

✮Review✮ (a) Initially, I loved this foundation, then ran into problems and decluttered it. I decided to repurchase it and use it in a different season of the year and it worked out perfectly. (b) One of my favorite stick foundations, but you have to be careful what primer you use. (c) I am almost finished with this foundation. It is a good foundation, but I think I'll pass on repurchasing. (d) This is an excellent primer to use with stick foundations. Rotating it out, but plan to rerotate it again (is that a word) and repurchase.
