Make Up For Ever - 30 Years. 30 Colors. 30 Artists. Swatches

By : Glam Shack

The Smoky Palette:

All of these Eyeshadows in this palette were a dream to swatch. I wanted to see how the Eyeshadows performed on their own, so I didn't use an Eyeshadow primer.

The Neutral Palette:

This palette was also easy to swatch. All of the eyeshadows applied smoothly with minimal fallout.

The Artistic Palette:

I-922 was difficult to swatch, as I had to apply several layers to get the color to look as vibrant as in the pan. Overall, I would say that the Artistic Palette is the most vibrant of the collection.

These are just swatches - I want to take some time and use these before I review them. Stay tuned - you don't want to miss out on the review!

Make Up For Ever - 30 Years. 30 Colors. 30 Artists.

By : Glam Shack
Available: September 04, 2014 for VIB Rouge only  =and September 09, 2014 for everyone.

What it is:
A limited-edition eye shadow palette featuring 30 shades with five finishes and an included pamphlet with tricks and tips for creating eye looks.

What it does:
Make Up For Ever’s 30th Anniversary Palette was curated by 30 elite makeup artists to bring together 30 rare palette shades that are inspired by each artist’s unique journey within the industry. Separated into individual palettes of smoky, neutral, and artistic shades, this extensive collection features a vast range of shades with five different finishes, and it includes a collectible pamphlet with tips and tricks from each of the 30 elite artists. Its innovative, gel-powder formula has super-saturated pigments that provide intense color payoff with superior blendability. Mix and match your favorite shadows create your own unique eye looks.

What else you need to know:
This palette includes a collectible pamphlet featuring tips and tricks from each of the 30 elite artists and 30 eye shadow shades that range from smoky to neutral to artistic colors. The shades range from smoky, to nude, to one-of-a-kind artistic eye shadows.

My Thoughts:
This palette turned me into a stalker! I have been stalking Sephora's website since I heard about this palette a few weeks ago and I have finally got my hands on it! This palette is beautiful with its spot-on color choices, which couldn't be more perfect for me. I haven't swatched them yet, as I wanted to take some pictures of the palette first. Now that I have photographed it, it's time to play.

The price tag on this one is very high at first glance ($250), but when you break it down, it's a little more reasonable. Each Make Up For Ever Eyeshadow sells for $21 each and if you want a palette, you have to purchase it separately. The cost of each Eyeshadow in this palette is $8.33 each, so that's a big discount off the regular price, and you get a very nice palette.

This palette is limited edition, so if you are considering getting this, you should not wait too long as I'm sure this one will sell out fast. I will try very hard to have these swatched by the end of today.

My Thoughts:
I have been so excited about these palettes since I first saw them on the internet. There are four palettes in this collection: Body, Mind, Spirit, Soul.  Each palettes has 12 eyeshadows. Being an eyeshadow palette junkie, I'm always in search of the next perfect palette. From the photos, these palettes look like my dream palette: Simple, elegant and classy. The packaging is absolutely beautiful with its glossy, mirror-like finish; Stila did a wonderful job in designing the packaging. I've had these for about a week now and wanted to take some time to play with these before I did my review on them. To see if the eyeshadows are as nice as the packaging, stay tuned for my review.

Since I couldn't just pick one or two palettes, the price was a little steep for all four. So after some digging and a lot of searching I figured out how to get a nice discount on these.

I was able to get 20% discount and 8% cash back on each palette.  To do the same, go to Stilacosmetics.com and sign up for their newsletter. After signing up, you should receive an email with a 20% off code (new subscribers only). Go to Ebates.com and use the link for Stila Cosmetics to make your purchase.

My Thoughts:
When I first saw this Bronzer, I thought that this could be a less expensive alternative to my Guerlain Terracotta 4 Seasons Tailor-Made Bronzing Powder Ebony and it is. This is not a dupe - but an alternative to the Guerlain Bronzer.

There are three brown matte shades and one red matte shade in this palette. The three brown shades in this palette are perfect for a Bronzer; the darkest brown can be used as a contour color for my NC50 skintone. I'm not a fan of using Bronzer for contouring, but if in a bind, I just might give it a try. The red shade is perfect as Blush - it's actually a very pretty Blush.

Mixing all the shades together, I ended up with a Blush rather than a Bronzer. I tried several time to mix them together so that the red didn't overpower the other shades. When all the shades are mixed together, it's too red for me to use as a Bronzer. For me, the perfect Bronzer will have red or yellow undertones; this mix is just too red.

As with my Guerlain Terracotta 4 Seasons Tailor-Made Bronzing Powder Ebony, I am using only the brown shades as a Bronzer and the red shade as a Blush. With only the brown shades mixed together, this is a very pretty Bronzer.

Overall, I really like this Bronzer and at $11.49, I would definitely purchase this over the $75 Guerlain Bronzer.

I will be doing a comparison of this Bronzer and the Guerlain Terracotta 4 Seasons Tailor-Made Bronzing Powder Ebony soon, so stay tuned.

My Thoughts:
These are an instant love of me and my lipstick hoarding. I have decided to stop calling it a makeup colleciton and start calling it what it really is; hoarding gone wild. I still use my wall lisptick storage, but it's completely filled so I had to find something else to hold more lip products. While browsing the interenet, I found these. They each hold 60 lipsticks each and sit securely on top of my Ikea Alex 9 chests. All of my round lipsticks fit perfectly, as well as most of my square lipsticks. My Milani Color Statement lipsticks fit perfectly, while my Maybelline Color Sensational lipstick are a tight fit. I have yet to find any cons to these, so for all of you lipstick hoarders, this is yet another storage option.

While browsing Azar's website, I saw a lot of awesome storage options for makeup. The crazy in me put together a really beautiful makeup room, (in my mind, of course). The end result would have had my bedroom looking like a makeup store. I'm pretty sure that my husband would have moved me and my makeup collection into the garage. Since I don't want to sleep in the garage, I got a grip and moved on.

I am happy with the lipstick and lip gloss storage from Azar. If you decide to purchase some of these storage units, I would love to see what you put together. Feel free to email me your link and I will add it to this post.

I purchased these at Staples for $17.29 each with free shipping. You can also purchase these at Azar Displays, but with the shipping charges, Staples turned out to be cheaper.

I purchased the Azar Lip Gloss Holder from Staples as well.
