The Balm Betty-Lou Manizer Swatches

It's hard to decide if this product should be classified as a bronzer or a highlight - it's a dark bronzey shade, but it's also super shimmery. If you like shimmery bronzers, this would definitely be a product for you! But if not, this is best saved for a summer highlight for those of us with paler complexions. If you have a darker skin tone, this would probably look beautiful as an everyday highlight for you!

As long as you're expecting the shimmer, this product is great! I personally don't like using it all over my face, because that's a bit too much shimmer for me - but if that's your look, go for it!

Another thing to keep in mind is that this product would actually make a beautiful shimmery bronze eye shadow!

Neutral Eyeshadow Palette Comparisons ~ Part 1: Introduction

As much as I love colorful eyeshadow, I have to admit that neutral palettes are way more practical, even for me! Recently, there have been a ton of different neutral palettes put out, so I wanted to snap a few pictures of the palettes that I own, to give you guys a better idea of what's available!

I'm gonna be posting about each of these five palettes next Monday - Friday, one per day. Luckily, the prices range from drugstore to high-end, so there should be something for everyone! And of course, let's hope for some dupes in there!
