A Surprise In The Mail!

Last week the lovely

Regan Alires Younique Presenter

Started a new feature on her beauty Facebook page called “Name this Look”! The first look she posted was a smoky rose gold look. I am always so impressed with how her different looks come out and this one really stood out to me! I thought a good name for it would be “Carmel Mocha Surprise” because of the warm tones and the shimmer that popped on her lid. And with to my surprise she liked my name choice!

Here is her look!

Well because I helped her name this look she sent me some goodies in the mail and I just had to share what she sent me!!!

img_0397Look at these goodies! I was really excited to give the shadows a try as I haven’t had the opportunity to try the Younique eye shadows. She also sent me this sample packet of perfumes. I’m not a big perfume wearer but this was a nice little sample packet for one time uses and to get a nice idea of what each scent is like.

Now lets dive in to these two shadows!

This is the most beautiful and perfect transition shade! Its the perfect neutrally warm brown that you can build up in the crease and really helps to make your look blended and gives a nice place for you to start building in colors on top of as you build the look. The other thing that totally impressed me was the pan size! These are nice big pans sizes compared to other press powder shadows I have. These are very buttery also!

 

Exhilarated

img_0402img_0403This shade is a gorgeous shimmer! I really wasn’t sure how I would like it because in the pan is has an almost purple flip to it and I thought it would end up looking funny when I applied it but I was completely wrong! It’s beautiful! I didn’t even have to use my setting mist to make my brush wet for it to have amazing pigment and shine! This shadow was also very creamy and pigmented! A total win!

 

Over all these shadows are incredible! They are very generous pan sizes and retail for $14. The other thing I really enjoy but didn’t get a photo of was each shade comes with it’s only little compact and a sticker to put on the back of the compact or back of the pan so that you can quickly and easily find the name of the shade you are looking for. There are 34 shades that I can find on the website and they all look amazing! I think I will be trying more in the future! Thank you Regan for sending me this awesome surprise! I really appreciate this gift!

 

Thank you for stopping by and keep an eye out for what might be up around the curve!
