Anastasia Beverly Hills: Shadow Couture World Traveller Palette

Anastasia’s Beverly Hills makeup has been on my makeup wish list for the longest time, that’s why I am dedicating one post each to review the Shadow Couture World Traveller palette, and the next post will be on the Artist Palette.

Each palette is priced at CAD$39 before tax, 12 colours in each palette (shimmers and mattes), one dual-ended brush, and an interior mirror. Packaging isn’t heavy and quite sturdy, so you can definitely carry it around your purse when you’re travelling.

The colour payoff (swatch-based) are mostly pigmented, buttery, easy to blend. I applied a good eye base primer, and the colour build-up is just amazing.

My absolute favourite colours from the Shadow Couture are Morocco, Bellini, Pink Champagne, Chic, Azure, Intense Gaze, and Metallic.

Below are 2 looks I created. The first was using the Shadow Couture palette, and the second was a mix with the Artist palette. Makeup details are described below each picture.

When Leopard Meets Watermelon

Hello LaRegazzeans!

God knows that leopard pattern always has a special place in my heart, so I did not think twice to take this baby home (a.k.a I’m an impulsive buyer). I purchased this leopard skirt a while ago from Forever 21 and I cant wait to wear it again this summer! The weather has been very very hot lately in Vancouver and for some reason, this skirt reminds me of watermelon. Yes, the temperature has been so hot that I am now imagining watermelons! And perhaps you think so too?

For this post, I decided to style it up with my black off-shoulder crop top from H&M. As for my shoes, I’m wearing my all time favourite heels from Charles & Keith.
