The Rules: 

Spoiler
Each Week, (On Saturday) I will post a new makeup challenge for the week. It will range from Brand challenges, to types of looks, or new/old items. Each day you participate in the challenge, you can post a pic in this thread (add it to the gallery too! Why not!) and tell us about your look! If you have ideas for challenges, post that too! We can add it to the schedule. Most important rule: HAVE FUN WITH YOUR STASH!

@gonerogue It looks so cute on you! And your look is so pretty!!

Re: Challenge of the Week! 2017

@gonerogue Beautiful look! The NG palette is beautiful on you. It’s one of my favorites! Smiley Happy

Re: Challenge of the Week! 2017

@PrettyPaint Thank you! It's one of my favorites as well! 

RE: Challenge of the Week! 2017

I “think” my blush is LE; it is Burberry Silk N Bloom. It came out last year. I believe this year was the Blush Palette which I️ still see on the site. I prefer Silk n bloom to the current one; I prefer the finish and the color is a bit deeper- but just barely. If this doesn’t count, the Viseart Grande Pro in my crease and outer corner counts. Eyes: TF singles in Iris Bronze & body double coupled with Viseart Monsieur Big from Lancôme mascara Charlotte Tilbury Barbarella brown liner Color: Burberry Silk n bloom blush Burberry Rose Gold Highlighter Burberry contour stick Lips: Tom Ford Love Crime

Re: RE: Challenge of the Week! 2017

I admire you for using that beautiful blush! You look great @mrsbaine Smiley Happy

Re: RE: Challenge of the Week! 2017

Thanks! I totally miss the pattern. It's a love/hate relationship I have with brands. They make products visually beautiful, but the product is also awesome so if I use it, I ruin the visual beauty. 

Re: RE: Challenge of the Week! 2017

@mrsbaine,

This is a winning look! So lively and feminine!  Smiley Happy

Re: RE: Challenge of the Week! 2017

Thanks @tsavorite! I liked this one! 

Re: RE: Challenge of the Week! 2017

You look so beautiful @mrsbaine. Love the lip and cheeks! 

Re: RE: Challenge of the Week! 2017

Thank you @PrettyPaint! I really like Love Crime! I almost wore it again today. 

Re: RE: Challenge of the Week! 2017

You look gorgeous! So glowy!

Re: RE: Challenge of the Week! 2017

Thank you @JenniferOhJenny! I like the look today! 

Re: Challenge of the Week! 2017

Taking a shot at the lower end of the spectrum, my palette of choice was the LE NYX In Your Element Water palette. I ordered this on sale recently and was absolutely floored by the formula; creamy, smooth, pigmented, easy to blend. Outstanding! I wish I had known I'd love it...I would have grabbed one or two more, but sadly they are now gone from Ulta's site, and the few left at my store are opened, swatched, AND back to full price 😕

Blush is from the Tarte holiday palette, the 4 pan one...dunno if the shades themselves are LE, but the palette is, so I call it good enough lol.

 

Lips aren't LE...heck, this isn't even the lipstick I wore earlier today...didn't even think to take a pic until just now, and have been playing around with other stuff this evening lol. UD Big Bang liquid topped with Fenty Sci-Fly

I recall hearing lots about the NYX LE Palettes when they came out. There was an earth one too I think? Very nice! Love the blush color too!  

Re: Challenge of the Week! 2017

@mrsbaine

Thanks so much! ☺️

There were six palettes in the set, and they were way overpriced at $29.99 imho (considering NYX palettes of this size are normally $17.99ish), so I pretty well ignored em til they went half off. Now I kinda regret that lol.

Earth, fire, water, wind, air, and metals, I think?

Re: Challenge of the Week! 2017

That looks so good on you

Re: Challenge of the Week! 2017

@howconnie

Thanks so much ☺️

Re: Challenge of the Week! 2017

@RGbrown,

Aha!  So that's the Water Element Palette! I'm glad that you were able to get it!  Smiley Happy

Re: Challenge of the Week! 2017

@tsavorite

Thanks so much! I am enjoying it way more than I expected lol 😄
