Happy New Year ladies! Sorry i've been slacking this week in posting, everyone's back from vacation so i've been busy catching up at work and because the fiance and I are moving next week (even though I feel like we just moved into our place!), but I am moving to be closer to work since the commute now sorta stinks. So I am sad leaving the home we had so many memories in, but looking forward to making new ones at our new place; which is going to cut my commute from an hour to less than 30 minutes! But I hope you all had a wonderful holiday with loved ones, and toast to the New Year! May 2011 bring lots of luck, happiness, good health, and of course more money wouldn't hurt either! LOL.

Anyway, I had an opportunity to try out a couple of 16 shimmer eyeshadow palettes from www.bornprettystore.com, as well as their sponge bun maker. When I first saw these palettes I was amazed at how colorful they are, and when I swatched them on my hand, they were so pigmented! I've seen random palettes from places that look bright and pigmented, but are far from it when you swatch them, and definitely not the case with these. I wish these palettes came in all neutral colors as well for everyday wear, or even a matte version to switch things up. They also come with sponge-tip applicators.

These are without a base, pretty pigmented!

Their sponge bun maker is so nifty and makes nice loose hairstyles in a jiff. My hair is long, thick, and heavy, so usually I can't rock hair 'do clips that make updo's or buns because my hair just weighs it down and my head ends up feeling bruised at the end of the day, but because these are made out of foam, they are pretty comfy to sport and makes it easy to do a messy bun or chignon in seconds. Although I had to use some bobby pins to pin a few pieces since it wouldn't hold all my hair together, it still came out great! It's great for those of you with shorter hair, or fine hair as it will hold up really well, for us ladies with long and thick hair, it takes a bit of work and you may need some pins to keep it in place, but you can still make nice hairstyles.

IchigoBunnie said...

oooo cool! i wanna get one of those bun-shaper things now haha. i've always wanted to do a japanese bun but teasing the hair is so damaging to the hair. this totally looks like a better option lol

and what a nice palette! i agree, kinda a bummer they dont' have a neutral palette of that.

I want one of those bun makers, too bad my hair isn't long enough to do a bun! but I do love that store I order tons of nail art supplies from them ♥

The eyeshadow looks amazing! I love the colors. And that sponge for your hair is so cool! But I can't use it cause my hair is waaay too short, need to grow it first. Though, I do envy your hair lol

Precious Deedee said...

I'm not a fan of shimmer eyeshadows but those colors are so beautiful...I like the sponge bun maker. I had something like that when I was a little girl. Love your hair and you're dress...

I love your hair from the Sponge Bun clip, do you think it would work with thin hair, or do you think that the clip would show through?

bondarica said...

wow..these pallets are so cute, u are lucky to have them in your country:X

bondarica said...

and i love the way you've done your hair, very natural simple and not very complicated

Michelle said...

Hey Vanessa, I was wondering about which size to get for the bun sponge size they come in size small & size large..I have med length hair, but it's very thick. Would you recommend large?

Vanessa said...

Hi Michelle- Yes I would definitely recommend a large, my hair is very heavy and thick (not to mention layered) so it's very grueling to try to get all my hairs in enough to roll, but I just use bobby pins to pin any stray hairs into place.
