Sedona Lace 88 Metal Palette+ Copper ☼ Plum Makeup!


Let's "jump een it"! I'll be reviewing the Sedona Lace 88 Matte Eyeshadow palette today! It was sent to for review purposes from sedonalace.com & the following are my honest opinions on the products & I also included a pretty fun look. We'll be transitioning from Summer into Fall pretty soon & if the ladies at QVC have taught me anything, it's that the Northern Lights Linen bedding will change my life! Lol kidding, they've taught me that your Summer wardrobe should transition into the Fall seamlessly! & That can apply to makeup also, right? An easy way to do that is colors! By including more darker or warmer tones into your makeup, we can start replacing the half baked shadows & the bright colors. Of course, I'm one to wear bright colors & bright lips any day of the year! But let's pretend I'm normal for this post lol. I think the Metal palette is perfect for this! It has a lot of browns & oranges.

This Metal Palette consists of 88 shimmery (metal) shadows. It includes all kinds of shades ideal for the lids, to darken creases, for highlights & everything in between. In the pictures above, are some random swatches from the palette. It shows that some shadows are more pigmented than others. All eyeshadows are really good to work with though. They're soft shadows, so it makes blending a breeze. But they're not overly soft, to the point where they'd crumble easily or where you'd have to be really careful not to overblend. They're pretty great! Like, my 88 matte palette.. The shadows are about the size of a dime. What I love about these palettes is that I have access to so many different colors in one place. Instead of fumbling through multiple palettes or single shadows to do my makeup. I can easily just keep one of these palettes nearby, which takes less space than all my little palettes. Another thing I love is that it doesn't compromise my options, on the contrary, it gives me so many more colors to choose from! In the two weeks, that I've been using this.. I find it hard to get stuck in a makeup rut. It's easier to experiment with new colors & combinations. The application is awesome too. It took me awhile to test out most of the colors & see which were more pigmented than others but now that I know which ones have more color payoff, I know which to use on the lids & which I can use for blending or for subtle color. I had a feeling I would like this palette, just because I already loved my matte one. But this is a really awesome palette. I was kind of afraid of the shimmery shadows because they tend to make all the creases on your eyes a lot more visible lol. But the colors are so gorgeous, that I actually love the shimmer. Overall, I really loved this palette.. my only gripe being that the outside packaging easily gets tons of finger prints & I'm constantly wiping it clean. Lol but that's so trivial & pretty insignificant. Sedona Lace frequently has promotions going on. At the time this was sent to me, they were having a "Get 3 free shadows with each order" promotion. So they also included the 3 shadows shown above! How cool. They're like little refills, they're the same size.



Copper Plum Eyes
Sedona Lace 88 Metal Eyeshadow Palette : This is a look I had done last week. I loved it so much, I decided to redo it for this post. You can check out the original on Instagram here. I tweeked it a bit & also used different lashes this time around. I should also note that I used the Mabelline Color Tattoo in Painted Purple as a base for the purple eyeshadow & I used a fleshtone matte shadow from the 88 Matte palette as the highlight. I love the eyelid color. It's such a pretty plum color. This has become one of my favorite color combinations I've ever done. It just works so well with the bronzy-copperish color. Who knew!



Dollhouse Pink
Wet N Wild Dollhouse Pink : In the original, I had used MAC's Of Royalty as the lipcolor. But for a little more "HEY LOOK AT ME" I switched it out for the bumblegum pink Dollhouse Pink. Which next to Candy Yum Yum is probably every bold girl's favorite lip color! If it's too much for you, you can always just swap it for a nude color or a less obvious pink. Haha



Sedona Lace Tapered Blending Brush 863
I also tried Sedona Lace's Tapered Blending Brush 863 which I found is perfect for blending out harsh edges in the crease! When I first got it, it didn't seem too different from the blending brush I already used but this one works really well. I found that it blended out shadows with less strokes than mine. The bristles are really soft but the tapered shape of the brush, keeps the bristles together when blending. I found that it also works really well for contouring down the nose & around the tip.. something I couldn't do with my old blending brush.  Anyway, I've been using this brush for the past two weeks & also used it in the Plum+Copper  makeup look above.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed the look! Hoping you all have a great week! I got lots of fun things lined up to post soon! Yay. For now, below I have listed some of the looks I've used the Sedona Lace 88 Matte palette. Ciao bellas! ❤
