Mac Brooke Shields Gravitas Palette | A Clothes Look

Brooke Shields recently did a collaboration with Mac Cosmetics, and I picked up one palette. The Gravitas which contains 15 almost full size eyeshadows, each eyeshadow contains .045 oz of product while a full size is .05oz.  This palette is $85 which is a steal and takes each eyeshadow down to a $5.66 each.  This is a limited edition palette, and will sell out, it has a mixture of permanent shades and new limited edition.

This palette sold out quickly online but I am guessing can still be found in stores so I wanted to show you all it today.

Kat Von D Holiday Star Studded Palette | A Clothes Look

Hey everyone! I’m sorry I have been gone for a while. I’m still trying to find a balance between school, work and my blog.  I tend to be able to post more on my Instagram than here so please follow @aclotheslook.

This is my favorite time of year for palettes and sets so I wanted to start this years post with the second edition of my favorite holiday palette from last year the Kat Von D eyeshadow book.  They raised their game this year with the packaging, they added a mirror, it is still a thick cardboard, with raised ‘studs’ on the front.  It holds 24 shadows and this year they are separated into quads. It still has a thin piece of plastic overlay attached, which I still do not love.

All except two shadows are extremely soft.  Gothica hands down is the worst shade in this palette the pigmentation, texture everything.  It looks like a beautiful color in the pan but is awful.  The other shadow that might need some work is Craft, it is just kind of chunky.

None of these colors are in the previous holiday eyeshadow book, it does not state whether these shades are limited edition or if they’ve been in other palettes. The eyeshadows are smooth and pigmented, I’m excited to create many looks with it.  I know they put them in quads but you can mix and match. I only wish that there were not so many light white/cream colors in the palette while they are all different they are very similar.

This retails for $55 at Sephora, and don’t forget to use eBates to get money back!

Do you think you will buy this?

Naked Basics 2 | A Clothes Look

Yes, Urban Decay has done it again.  I’m sure you have already seen this numerous times in the beauty sphere but I still wanted to put my two cents in.  This retails for $29.00, wherever Urban Decay is sold.

The packaging is almost exactly the same as the Naked Basics original palette, the only thing that is different is the color of the plastic is a tad lighter and the writing is in a different color.

The colors are cooler then the original but still beautiful, however I do find the colors Stark and Fresh a little hard to show up on my skin and eyes especially with a fluffy brush but these eyeshadows are up to par with the rest of the Urban Decay shadow. 

I used every color on my eye today so I wanted to show you the quick look I came up with.

The eyeshadows blend easily and beautifully. My favorite color is Cover (the 4th shadow from the left)

Do you need both?

Yes and no. If you use a mixture of warm and cool eyeshadows, yes I think this is a staple. Do you only use warm eyeshadows then no you don’t really need it but it is a nice piece to have in your collection. 

Which do I prefer? 
Honestly, I love both for separate reasons if I could I would combine a few of the original eyeshadows and a few from this palette to make the perfect 5 pan palette. I probably would reach for the original more if I HAD to choose between the two. 

 

Have you bought this palette? Will you buy this palette? Which do you prefer?
