Makeup Mondays: The Ultimate Blockbuster Palette

Remember last week when I mentioned I was going to reveal what I purchased during Sephora's sweet little promotion they had going on?

Well, it finally arrived and I'm super excited!!! Let me introduce you to Sephora's  Ultimate Blockbuster Palette "Collectors Edition". When I first laid eyes on this beauty I knew it was too tempting to turn down. Every girl should have one of these in her collection!


This baby comes packed with tons of eyeshadow, lip gloss, blushes and liners. It even includes a couple of  applicators and brushes. There's such a wide variety of colors and endless possibilities. One of the things I love the most about this palette is that it's such a large kit but not bulky, it's so compact. Being able to fold the compartments is definitely a plus and ideal for space saving when it comes to storage.

These are my free samples i chose with my order! I haven't had a chance to try them out just yet.

And you already know I couldn't wait to give a few of those shadows a try, right?

This is my very first time experimenting with blending, and I don't think I did too bad. I only used mascara and blended 3-4 colors together. Two different blues and two different purples.

Next time I'll add eyeliner and I'm going to buy a white pencil to make the colors more defined!

While I must say the only  downside  I've noticed so far with this palette is that some of the colors aren't as bold or as rich as others, and some barely show against my skin.  But, with so many colors to choose from I'd hardly call that a setback. So please stay tuned, because I'll be playing with more looks in the future!


  1. This came out great! I truly need to get myself a more extensive palette.

  2. Damn, don't you just love Sephora? And as I told you the other night on Twitter, your eye make-up is fresh to def! I wish I had skills like that. One can dream!
