My 5 Most Coveted Eyeshadow Palette ✮ 2016

My 5 most coveted eyeshadow palettes

When you suffer from makeup addiction, we are either an eyeshadow palette lover or we prefer their single counterparts. Personally, I like them both but I surely appreciate the value of palettes with their cute packaging and their versatility in comparison to buying all unique shades.

I have to seriously restrain myself because I would buy them all, but here is a list of the five that I covet the most and eventually will end up buying!!!

Viseart Neutral Mattes (01)

Viseart Cool Mattes (07)

Viseart Cool Matte

Indisputably, Viseart has concocted one of the best eyeshadow formula on today’s market. I wish I would have started my shadow collections with these palettes instead of buying average ones. At $100Cdn a pop, they are on the expensive side but the amount of product you get versus the quality is a great value for money when you think about it. I 100% vouch for their MATTE colors but since I haven’t tried their shimmery ones, I can not put Ingrid’s seal of approval. As we all fear the unknown, I would prefer Neutral Mattes and Cool Mattes palettes the most. Viseart is also a cruelty-free brand.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette

These colors cry my name so very much, it keeps waking me up at night (No, wait… it’s BeardMan snoring like a Mack truck again, sorry)! Seriously, I’ve yet to find someone who didn’t love the formula of this ABH Modern Renaissance palette! I’ve heard girls talking about the shades that were not flattering for their particular skin tone, but NO ONE said that these were bad eyeshadows in any way. I only own the Tamana palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills and I enjoy it a lot actually! ABH is also a cruelty-free brand.

Laura Mercier Eye Art Artist’s Palette

Laura Mercier Artist Palette

In my estimation, Laura Mercier’s shadows are among the very best. But, universally speaking, critics/reviews are somewhat divided: they either love them or hate them, strangely there isn’t a middle ground. As my all-time favorite palette is from her line, I know for sure that I would totally be enchanted by this palette. I own 3 Laura Mercier eyeshadow palettes and they are all are exceptional. My only hitch is that this Eye Art Artist’s palette contains 5 colors I already have in my collection!!!

M.A.C Eye Shadow x 15: Warm Neutral

M.A.C x Warm Neutral Palette

Not surprisingly I’m sure, I already own the Cool Neutral and I love that these premade palettes retail for just $85Cdn! At $5.66 per shadow, there is no way you can beat this price, and frankly, I really love the colors on this one! My addiction to neutral shades is pretty well documented, and I feel that this palette would add a little je ne sais quoi to my collection (Actually I know what it will do: satisfy my urge to buy!!). Around Christmas, M.A.C tends to have a 20% rebate so it could be the best time for this bad boy to enter Ingrid’s evergrowing palette stash!

What are some of yours?

♥ My Favorite YouTube Video of the Week ♥

Am I the only one obsessed with tiny houses? I always tell my BF that I would see myself living this way of life. Of course, BeardMan laughs so much when I send him links to my favorite tiny houses because he’s always saying that these houses are not big enough for my beauty products only (which is true) but I’m thinking more of it for our retirement plan, something for our old age in a remote paradisiac location near the water let’s say! Anyway, my idea of the ideal retirement plan is constantly evolving: with all my efforts to get in shape and loose some weight,  my old bones will surely require something without steps because this morning, I’m walking like Donald Duck after being hit by a train… Ok, tiny houses videos, right!! … Stay focused Ingrid…

This one because it’s too genius…

And this one because I freaking love it and see myself living there…

♥ The Hot or Not NEW product of the Week ♥

Marc Jacobs Beauty – Style Eye Con No 20 Eyeshadow Palette

The sleek gold and slim packaging is to die for; well, dying is possibly what will happen after you spend $124CAN to own this gorgeous palette. Even though it leaves a hole in your wallet, compared to his Style Eye Con #7 palettes,  I think this one is probably a great value (estimated worth: $177.50). Another advantage is that, out of the 20 colors, only 2 are made with his Metallic formula, which totally sucks by the way (I do own Lolita  206). I like his shadows but I don’t love them; for this kind of pricing I would buy a Viseart palette long before this one. In an ideal world, Viseart palettes would be in Marc Jacob’s packaging! Are you in or out on this one ????

♥ The Sneak Peek product of the Week ♥

Finally, we had a sneak peek of the Too Faced and Kat Von D “Better Together” collaboration. Faithful to TF’s traditions, their packagings are ultra cute but I don’t know what’s happening with me lately, I’m not remotely interested. I’ve bought so many limited editions in the past and almost all of them are collecting dust or have already been given away. If getting older means that I’m less impulsive, then bring on this maturity.

♥ The WTF trailer of the Week ♥

Ben-Hur

I love movies! Nothing beats the pleasure of watching a good film in the comfort of my home, cuddled with BeardMan and my furry daughter, and all wrapped up in our old sleeping bag! I always get excited watching new trailers and but this week, this happened …

In all different fields, there are some masterpieces, untouchables: there are songs that you just can not rearrange, characters that you just cannot transpose in the 21st century, and there are classic movies that you just want to preserve in their original version, and Ben-Hur is one of them… I’m sorry but you just don’t mess with a cult movie. Jack Houston may have been good in Boardwalk Empire but he is no Charlton Heston, COME ON!!! What will be next? Mila Kunis in Mary Poppins or Taylor Swift in The Sound of Music? Sorry, I just can’t comprehend this trend of trying to revisit or remake classics that distinctively defined the film industry… too disturbing !!

♥ My Favorite YouTube Video of the Week ♥

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Ice-Cream | Healthy & Dairy-Free Homemade Ice-Cream from HealthNutNutrition

Who knew a “healthier” ice cream recipe would be so damn good! Vegetarian friendly, diet “friendlier”. August is ice-cream month, isn’t it?!!!

♥My Anti-Haul of the Week ♥

Am I the only one who is totally not interested in the new Kat Von D « Serpentina” eyeshadow palette? Don’t get me wrong, I love KVD shadows but there is no way I could use this one. Ah well! I must be getting too old for those crazy colors and finishes or I definitely need to go out more!
