I’m really loving the Sugar Plum Fairy palette, which is a set of shimmery purples (all tones, from light lavender to deep plum, along with a sparkly brown that some people have compared to NARS Mekong eyeshadow).
To achieve this look, I used the lightest shade (top left) as an inner corner and brow highlight, then applied to one next to it (top right) as an all-over lid color. I darkened up the outer third of my lid with the pretty grape color (2nd row, right) and finished it off with the purpley brown in the outer corners.
These shadows are really easy to work with, and they are shimmery, so they really play up your eyes and bring lightness and brightness to them. On the rest of my face, I’m wearing NARS Orgasm blush and Laguna bronzer (love that duo!), with the combo of Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup in Natural Ivory and Sonia Kashuk Perfecting Liquid Makeup in Buff, set with e.l.f. Pressed Powder.
I’m still loving purple shades for my eyes, and this Wet n Wild holiday palette adds a festive touch to those colors with shimmer. This eye look definitely dressed up my outfit, which was just a grey sweater and jeans…when you wear mostly monochromatic outfits, you have to get a touch of color somehow!
Just a quick food review (I have a food blog, What’s On My Plate?, but I wanted to post this on here since I’ve been maintaining and keeping up with this blog a bit better! — don’t know about you, but I love the convenience of fast food. I just don’t always love the taste or the nutritional content that comes along with it.
I was fortunate to be able to try Wendy’s new natural-cut fries as part of a Foodbuzz promotion (I’m in the Tastemaker program for the website). Let me just say — these fries are amazing. They don’t taste like your average fast food french fry…they look and taste different. They’re sprinkled with sea salt and have the skins left on them, which I think adds to the flavor and makes them a bit heartier.
My camera battery needs to be charged, so I didn’t get a picture of the actual fries I tried, but take a look at the photo from the Wendy’s website…my fries looked exactly like that. Definitely enjoyed these fries, and I have to say that I hadn’t been to Wendy’s for fast food in several months before I was given the chance to review these. Wendy’s has really upped their game with the new fries, and I’m excited to see what else they might add or change on their menu!
Note – I received a gift card from Foodbuzz to try the new natural-cut fries from Wendy’s. This review is not sponsored, and I received no compensation for my review.
