I bought this palette long time ago and I'm finally posting about it... lol~ By looking at the pictures, the date was taken back in July... whoah baby lol~ :X
Product Review: Maybelline Stylish Smokes in Natural Smokes-02
Where can you purchase this: any drugstores
Made in USA
My thoughts: To be honest, the reason why I didn't post earlier is because I wasn't a fan of it. When I bought it back in July, I played around with the palette. I actually followed the direction on the back and didn't like how it looked on me. For that reason, I never touched this palette again until last week. This time around I modified the look to my style and fell in love... wheee~ :)
* Smokey look but on the natural side.
* Can wear during daytime.
* Easy instruction on the back.
* Comes from a brand you're starting to trust.
* People compare it to the MAC 2008 Holiday Palette in Smokey Eyes.
* Comes from a brand I never trusted.
* I don't completely compare it to the MAC 2008 Holiday Palette in Smokey Eyes.
Would I buy this again? Yup.

I'm going to talk about this palette a little bit more... hehe~ Here's a closer pictures of the colors of the palette.
(clockwise from top left: lid color, crease, outer corner, and brow bone)
The top two colors are both shimmery and the bottom two are matte. I also swatched it long time ago. Here's a picture of the swatches.
(l-r: lid, crease, brow bone, and outer corner)
I also took a picture of the back so you can see the direction of the palette. ;)
Now for the look I did. It's a very simple neutral, natural look which I love since I don't want to stand out during daytime.
What I used:
Now for the look:
MAC Paint Pot in Painterly

A lot of people compare this palette to the MAC 2008 Holiday Palette in Smokey Eyes. I don't know if I agree or not, but I do have the MAC palette. You can be the judge... hehe~ ;)
I still have this picture which I took for the old blog I had before I took it down. I wish I had the swatches, but unfortunately I deleted that... lol~ If you want to see swatches for this and compare it to the Maybelline palette, ask and I will do.
I finished another bag for a Christmas gift for one of my nieces. That makes two down and two more to go... lol~ :/
This time I made a pig bag. If you want to see the bunny bag I made, you can click here to see it. ;)
I'm going to end with a little surprise Tobey left for my dad and I... lol~
I guess he couldn't sleep one night, because we woke up to this gigantic hole he left... lol~ This has to be the biggest hole he has ever dug up. My dad wasn't happy but I thought it was cute. :X
