Fabulous Finds Friday
Hey, guys! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!
Today, let’s talk skepticism. For a long time, I was quite skeptical of those all-in-one palettes. You know the ones, they have eyeshadows and blush and lipstick all in one compact. I just couldn’t wrap my mind around having cream products next to powdery ones and how messy that must get. Did I actually try it, though? No, no I didn’t. Was I missing out big time? Yes, yes I was.
Last week, the Thanksgiving holiday brought a chance for the hubby and me to visit my family back in Kansas. All the good food and good company are reason enough to be excited to go home. One extra perk is that oftentimes my mom has a pile of things she bought that didn’t work for her, but she thinks will work for me. Aren’t moms the best? This trip she had an all-in-one palette from Revlon (find it here). There are 3 shade choices for this palette; mine is Berry in Love. It includes 6 eyeshadows, 1 blush, 2 lipsticks, 2 lip glosses, a mirror, and mini applicators. The applicators actually aren’t bad, but preferably I would use my own brushes. The mirror is a little small, but usable.
The colors are said to be universally flattering, and they are certainly very pretty. The blush is a little light on my skin tone. It does layer well, so with a little extra work you can get a good color payoff. I wish the pan for the blush was bigger as it’s difficult to use a full-size blush brush, but it’s workable. The palette doesn’t come with a highlight, but you can easily use any of the lighter eyeshadow shades for that purpose. As I mentioned, my biggest fear was that the powder products would get all up into the cream products. I’m happy to say, that has not been an issue yet. So far so good!
My favorite part of this palette is the convenience. This can replace 5 products you would normally have to include in your makeup bag with this one palette. With holiday travel season upon us (and any traveling for that matter) space is at a premium. If I can pack a product that saves precious space, that’s a big plus. It’s also nice not having to think about coordinating your eyeshadow, blush, and lipstick choices. It’s all right there, already optimized with universally flattering colors that work well together. It’s quick and easy to just throw in your bag and go. That I like and you will too! If you’re like me and were skeptical of the all-in-one palette, just try it out. You won’t be disappointed!
