This top has become one of my favorites. I love the salt and pepper look and it’s super comfy! I found a perfect secluded spot to take outfit photos. I’ve been looking for a place that’s minimal and has neutral colors. Seems like all the buildings in Tucson are earth colors of some sort. My closet is pretty much cleared out and now it’s time to donate things that didn’t sell. UGH it feels so GOOD to downsize!

The Look:
Mossimo top.
Forever21 pants.
Xhilaration shoes.
Ray Ban sunglasses.

Creating a palette was really hard, there’s so many choices and I was really unsure of the colors that would work for me. I wasn’t too thrilled about the colors: Banana (too light), Champagne (unsure still), and Copper Brown (too orange). The powders are pigmented well and have a smooth texture. I’m still able to create a look by gradually building and mixing the colors.

I received the refills a few days before the actual well palette. I’m not sure if that’s how it’s done normally, but I was sure confused when I received it in the mail. I even called and spoke to a sale rep, just to make sure that they don’t forget that I did order it will the palette.

If you aren’t sure what colors work for you, I definitely recommend getting the pre-selected colors and go from there.
