I bought this with my Sephora Facebook15 discount.  I love the packaging. Elegant lux box and the sophisticated faux black rose. Very elegant. Even faux leather cover on the palette is attractive.

The kit came with a black eyeliner pencil. It’s very creamy and glides on softly, no tugging on my eyelids.  I’d rather have brown or blue eyeliner. Black looks stark on my light skin.

I’ve worn the colors twice and I’m not feeling it. I look better with browns that have a rose undertone. No rose in these browns. The crease color specifically is just too dark.

Maybe it’s because I have brown eyes and brown hair and pale skin  but the colors don’t enhance my looks.  I look washed out and tired.  My quest for the right brown tone color palette continues. *sigh*

I found a palette of eye shadows about a week ago at Ross. It was only $2.99 and it had lots of pretty colors so I thought why not?  I’m a sucker for bargains, especially on makeup. I’ve never heard of Giovi USA but I was eager to try it.

The colors are mostly shimmery frosts in warm tones.  It was the four turquoise colors that caught my eye.  I have a thing for turquoise, sky blue, and teal. Any variations of these colors always catch my eye and often end up in my makeup collection.

I used Smashbox’s Lid primer and the shadow lasts all day. It maintains the color pretty well but there is a smidgen of fading.  Worth the $2.99 I paid for it. Lots more makeuptini looks to mix up.  Hours of future fun ahead.

Now it’s on to the next hunt for more beauty bargains.  What’s your beauty bargain story? Post it in the comments section.
