An EOTD featuring Morphe's 35F Palette

Morphe 35F Eyeshadow Palette.

I didn't get to visit the Morphe counter at IMATS Vancouver this year, so I was excited to see that CurliQue in Vancouver carries the brand! I was even more excited to see that they offer Saturday workshops with a 20 per cent discount for attendees—that's how I so conveniently justified bringing this baby home with me. ;)

I'm amazed at the pigmentation and quality of Morphe shadows for the price. There are 35 shadows in this palette, and they work out to being about a dollar each! Crazy, right? I'm looking forward to playing with this more, but I wanted to show you an eye look I came up with a couple of weeks ago.

An eye of the day with Morphe's 35F Eyeshadow Palette.

I love the mix of cranberries, purples, taupes and bronzes in the palette. Most are shimmers, but there's a row of warm matte transition shades at the bottom. So many pretty colours to play with, and so little time!

Have you tried any of Morphe's palettes? What did you think? Let me know in the comments!

Make Up For Ever Pro Sculpting Lip in 50 Purple: Review and Photos

Make Up For Ever Pro Sculpting Lip in 50 (Purple). This shade is closer to berry than purple.

With the launch of Make Up For Ever's new Artist Rouge Lipstick range, this little line of lip products are being overshadowed—but they're awesome!

I'm talking about the Make Up For Ever Pro Sculpting Lip colours. There are four, all in varying shades of red. The two-sided pen features a lipstick with a lovely narrow bullet on one end, and a sponge-tip applicator that dips into a firm, shimmery powder on the other. You apply the lipstick (which is one of the most comfortable, smooth formulas I've tried) as usual. Then you pat a little of the shimmer product on the centre of your pout to give the illusion of fullness. It's different, but I have to say I like it! It does look even prettier and more natural in photos than in person (which is either a pro or a con depending on what you're looking for). Here's a look:

Make Up For Ever Pro Sculpting Lip in 50 (Purple).

Isn't that a beautiful, rich berry colour? I love it. It's said to be a matte finish, but I'd call it a satin.

You do have to be careful not to apply too much of the white shimmer. In photos, it looks like the light is hitting my lips just so. But it actually changes the colour of the lipstick, which can look a little odd in person. But hey, if you like that dramatic look—you do you!

Make Up For Ever's Pro Sculpting Lip colours are available at Sephora for $32. In addition to the shade I have here, 50 (Purple), there's also Rosewood, Rust, and Carmine Red.
