Today's post is something I was really excited about - I got the opportunity to receive a few things from Feelunique, an website that carries tons of different makeup and skincare brands. It's really convenient because they have such a nice variety of both high end and drugstore products that you might not be able to find in your local stores, especially if you're like me and don't live in a big city where things are more readily available.
The first thing I got was the By Terry Ombre Blackstar Melting Eyeshadow* in the shade Ombre Mercure. I've heard so many of my favorite bloggers talk about this but like I said, it's not something we have in stores around here so I was super excited to finally try it. It's a beautiful creamy eyeshadow stick that applies and blends really nicely and is perfect for a wash of color all over the lid. It's really pigmented and shimmery so it would be perfect for a night out. I actually found myself having to use multiple different products to remove all of the glitter off of my face, which I guess says something about it's staying power. In the last photo above, it's what I used on the inner half of my eyelids.
I also got theBalm Meet Matt(e) Trimony Eyeshadow Palette*, which is probably my favorite thing that I received. First off, the packaging is really nice and the name is really witty and cute. Everyone needs a good matte palette and this one has a really nice range of shades from browns to reds to black, which is perfect for me as I've been loving pinky red shades at the moment. The shadows themselves are really pigmented and blendable and work for both daytime and nighttime looks, so this is definitely going to become a staple product for me!
The last thing I got was a skincare product - the ELEMIS Balancing Lavender Toner*. I'm not great at talking about skincare, so I'll give you the description from the site: High Alpine Lavender helps maintain the skin's natural pH balance, whilst effectively clarifying the complexion without the use of alcohol for harsh detergents. I am a fan of toners as I have oily skin and they're perfect for a bit of a refresh during the day. This one feels really nice on the skin and leaves you with an overall clean and refreshed feeling.
And now for everyone's favorite part - a discount code! You can use the code DANNI10 for 10% off an order over $40. You'll get free shipping for spending that much as well so I'd say it's a pretty good deal! Have a good weekend everyone!
