Em Cosmetics Life Moment Palette: Winter Life Ice Bunny Edition

The Ice Bunny palette is the second holiday Life Moment palette I got from Em Cosmetics.

I liked this one better of the two. The lip colors were better in the other palette, but I think the quality of the shadows are a little better in this one. Personally, I also like the colors in this palette more.

Em Cosmetics Life Moment Palette: Holiday Life New Year's Countdown Edition

On Cyber Monday, Em Cosmetics offered a buy one, get one free on everything deal. It would have been the perfect time to get two big Life Palettes, but I still can't afford to spend that much on it... so instead I got the two Holiday Life Moment palettes. This is the first one- The New Year's Countdown palette.

It's $29 and comes with 6 eye shadows, 2 lip colors, and 1 blush. I don't like pan lip colors, but they are nice enough to provide a little brush. The blush looks incredibly scary and dark but it's not too pigmented so it comes across much more wearable.

December Ipsy Bag

I got December's Ipsy bag a few days ago.

I think I need to change up my preferences again. 5 out of the 9 bags I've received have included nail polish... which I like, but how many bottles can I possibly use up really? I also got a perfume, which I don't care for. It's a good size, unlike the ones Birchbox does, but I'm so sensitive to perfume that I don't use most samples. This isn't my favorite bag, but it's not the worst. I do like the Pop Beauty eyeshadow trio.

Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Medley in No Neutral Ground

I recently picked up No Neutral Ground, one of Wet n Wild's limited edition Color Icon Eyeshadow Medley palettes from the Holiday 2013 In The Spotlight collection. This is my first time trying one of these palettes.

The palette comes with three shimmer overcoats, three pearl powders, and two matte definers.

Out of the whole palette, the only shadow I really like is the brown matte color. I looked at a lot of swatches of this palette and they all looked a lot more pigmented than what I experienced. It did seem that there was potential to build, which I only tried to do on the matte shades (two layers), but the initial one-swipe swatches were not very pigmented. They aren't unusable, but the colors aren't unique enough to be worth it.

Shopping My Stash Monthly Makeup Basket for December

I'm back with another makeup basket.

I've been doing the baskets for about 6 months now and this is the first month that I haven't been terribly excited about putting one together. I think I've finally decided to put together a Project 10 Pan to shake things up... which I will start in January. I'll also do a makeup basket for the products I want to get use out of.

This month, however, I will just continue with what I've been doing.
