Aw sorry to hear that. Smiley Sad @GG84

Re: 🎊🎄Holiday Mystery Friend Gratis🎄🎊

I got goodies today! 😍 Thank you @TeamBIC@KatieBT@firstaidbeauty@Herbivore@katesomerville, and NARS for these fabulous gifts, and the wonderful @RGbrown for choosing to share them with me! 

 
After unwrapping everything tonight, I couldn’t resist playing a bit with the Ignited palette on one eye. I originally wanted to use every shade, no matter how the final look would turn out, just to see how well they’d play with my skin tone and one another. 😂 But I wound up using only 7. Interestingly, my camera picked up almost none of the shimmers until I sat in front of a beauty light. The shimmer is very visible in real life.

The mattes sit and blend well. So do the others when used dry. Even with eyeshadow primer (which I forgot to include in the photo, oops), it took a wet brush to make the metallics really pop on my lid. The shimmers are sheer enough to create a nice sparkly wash over everything, and they’re buildable to an extent. The shimmers performed better with a dry brush.

This month I’ll play more with the palette and try the other goodies. I’m excited to try everything!

Squeeeeee! I'm so happy it arrived! Sparkle sparkle sparkle 😍😍

Re: 🎊🎄Holiday Mystery Friend Gratis🎄🎊

@RGbrown You are awesome! 🥰 The FAB cream is right on time: I’m trying various daytime moisturizers to replace or alternate with Dr. Jart Water Fuse (I love Water Fuse, but there’s not much product in the ridiculously oversized jar and my jar’s almost empty already). I need something as lightweight as Water Fuse, otherwise I’d just use my nighttime YTTP cream. The FAB Barriair Cream might do the trick! I’ll patch test it for a few days before putting it to the full-face Chicago winter test. Thanks again! 

Re: 🎊🎄Holiday Mystery Friend Gratis🎄🎊

@WinglessOneUnidentified

Ooohhh, perfect timing! I hope the FAB works as a replacement for you!

 

A drop or two of the Emerald Oil with it may be beneficial as well. I'm finding it to be really lightweight but super moisturizing 😊

Re: 🎊🎄Holiday Mystery Friend Gratis🎄🎊

What, more gratis! Hoooray and congrats @WinglessOne ! Love your shadow work and also your lippie Smiley Happy And that @RGbrown, what a doll Smiley Happy 

Re: 🎊🎄Holiday Mystery Friend Gratis🎄🎊

Thanks so much, @MissPuff! The lipstick is the stain left by MAC Beetroot, after hours of wear without reapplication. 😄 It wears/stains down pretty well! 

Re: 🎊🎄Holiday Mystery Friend Gratis🎄🎊

Yay @WinglessOne so glad you got one of these! That’s a fantastic eye look. Can’t wait to see more!

Re: 🎊🎄Holiday Mystery Friend Gratis🎄🎊

It's taken me a while to finally post this, but wanted to give a big "Thank You!" to @TeamBIC, @KatieBT@Herbivore@firstaidbeauty@katesomerville, and NARS!

I am so grateful to be chosen for this gratis but even more grateful that I was able to pick another deserving person (@itsfi😉)to receive it as well! Such a wonderful and thoughtful idea to spread the love!
I haven't used these products enough to give any detailed reviews yet, but I can say that all of these (even the ExfoliKate!) are gentle enough for my dry and sometimes dehydrated and sensitive skin. I actually really loved using all three together! Definitely a great trio for super soft and hydrated skin!🙌 – and they all do great under makeup!👌
I was able to use the NARS palette a little and thought all the shades were so pretty! Without using a primer they had great pigment, smooth blendability and very minimal fallout. Next time I'll see how they perform with a primer and/or a wetted/damp brush.👍
Can't wait to use these more and I look forward to reading everyone else's thoughts/reviews on these!
