A few months ago I found this best of kit on Hautelook and decided I needed it. ¬†Well not need you know but I thought I needed it for review purposes… ūüôā ¬†Kitten is a best selling eyeshadow and gloss for Stila and I thought I should let you know if its great or not!

This can still be found on amazon where it retails for $65.00 but I bought mine on Hautelook for $24.00.  Is this worth $65.00?  No.  Worth $24.00? YES !

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and BH Cosmetics- Part 2

PicMonkey Collage123

I was planning on just numbering the shades in the palette but I found the pictures below on BH Cosmetics Instagram and apparently the shadows have names although they aren’t on the packaging.

PicMonkey Collage

I have Elizabeth Motts Thank Me Later Eyeshadow Primer all over my lid.  I then put Bone all over over my lid up into my crease. Then I used a mixture of Burnt Sienna and Chocolate Brown in the crease and really defused it with a fluffy crease brush.  Then I used Shell Beige on the outer and inner portions of my lid leaving the middle section of my eyelid clean.  Then I popped Yellow Gold on the middle of my eyelid. I chose Pale Ivory and Lilac Pink mixed as an inner corner highlight.  In the second pictures below I  used a mixture of Slate Gray and Shimmering Charcoal on my lower lash line and Avon SuperShock Gel Eye Liner Pencil in Aqua Pop on my lower lash line.
