I’m still adjusting to my little man being 3. It’s a difficult thing, coming to terms with the fact he’s no longer a baby. Makes me feel like I’m getting old too! Haha.
I got the palette on HauteLook for $15 (steal, what?) and it has such cute packaging!
L to R: Flash, Maui Wowie, Chopper and Smog
and mini 24/7 glide on eyeliner in Bronze.
L: Natural lighting, R: With flash. Click to see the shades up close!
It also has a mini sized Primer Potion in Sin, the gold bottle (which I forgot to take a picture of individually).
I thought the purple would be the most pigmented, but sadly, I was wrong..
L to R: Smog, Chopper, Maui Wowie, Flash
All the other colours I only had to swatch once, the purple required numerous swipes to be that opaque. It’s a pity, because in the pan it’s my favourite out of the shades
Smog and Flash have a slight shimmer to them, while Chopper and Maui Wowie have chunks of sparkly glitter. Maui Wowie is PACKED with glitter, but it doesn’t feel too gritty or anything which is a plus.
This is the 24/7 Glide On eyeliner in Bourbon and the Primer Potion in Sin:
L: Natural lighting, R: With flash
Some people don’t like this primer because of the frosty champagne colour, but I just blend it really well so it’s not as obvious. When using it with this palette it’s not really an issue anyway, since the shadows are shimmery gold and bronzey colours.
The eyeliner is smooth and creamy and very pigmented on bare skin. I had a few issues getting it to show up as well over the shadows though.
PROS: Smooth, long wearing, product is a good size
CONS: Purple not as pigmented as I hoped, eyeliner not as pigmented over the shadows, some glitter fallout
MONEYSAVER: Yes! $15, thanks HauteLook
TIMESAVER: Pretty much, you can use the whole palette for your eyes, from priming to lining and in between I will probably use the shades separately though.
As you can see, the purple is very muted

I did have on one of the lip colours from the Lorac Box Office Hit palette, but my #2 son CA decided to smooch it off!
They’re so sweet when they’re this age! He'll be 2 in July, that's when they start being terrors LOL!
Anyway, I just put some Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush lipgloss in Sugar High on, but I must have still had some of the lip colour on because it looks strangely dark around the outside of my lips and then lighter on the inside.
How do you like the shades? Do you think they are still relevant for this summer, or are they outdated?
Personally I think they still look great and I’m definitely going to be wearing them this summer!
