I recently had a much-needed massage at Area Yoga and Spa on Smith Street in Brooklyn, and as I was paying for the treatment, I noticed a 50% off table. To my delight this beautiful makeup palette from Dr. Hauschka was among the sale goodies! It retails for $50 but I got it for just $25!! (If you live in Brooklyn, you might call the store to see if they still have them on sale…this was about 3 weeks ago that I bought it.) Isn’t it fun for Spring? It also comes in Warm Breeze (more warm-toned colors) but I thought the turquoise just added a punch of color that would look nice in small doses. I love using the top color (a shimmery champagne color) on my lid and the darker brown in the crease. The eyeliner that comes with the palette is Aqua so I use that as a liner and then, using a wet eyeliner brush dipped in the turquoise shadow, I trace over the liner, which adds just a bit more of the gorgeous aqua color at the lash line. You can also use the turquoise shadow as a sheer wash all over the lid, which looks nice with just a charcoal liner and black mascara. The lip colors are both very neutral and wearable. My only complaint is that they both have shimmer in them, and I wish one of them was shimmer and one not. But I do like both of the colors and the texture is creamy and easy to apply with the included brush.
Today I am packing for our annual escape-the-winter-trip to Puerto Rico and this palette is definitely coming along. The only other makeup I’m bringing is a mascara, my Marie Veronique tinted moisturizer with SPF, and my Vapour Multi-Use blush in” Spark”. Makes packing a bit easier!
