Make Up For Ever Black Tango Palette, Review and Swatches

Fall beauty at its best, baby.

Make Up For Ever Black Tango Aqua Cream Palette

My favorite brand has done it again, folks! Check out the new Black Tango Palette ($45). It’s packed with traditional Fall colors, but this time, MUFE offers them in their Aqua Creams.


These four colors will work perfectly as eye shadow and eyeliner. There’s a double-sided brush that comes with the palette, but I somehow misplaced mine. I hate when that freakin’ happens.

My Perfect Skin Care Moisturizers: Make Up For Ever and Philosophy

Philosophy Hope In a Jar and Make Up For Ever HD Elixer

It’s been an annoying few months for my skin. It’s so dry and flaky, I had no clue what to do with it! I would look in the mirror after I showered, and there was the flakiness. I’m so used to being an oily girl, so this was difficult. I had tried moisturizers from Juice Beauty, Mario Badescu and Korres. They were okay, but nothing special. My last skin care purchase was Philosophy Hope In A Jar. Can’t even lie, mama Oprah had her ever-popular effect on me too. She mentioned it as one of her favorite things, so I remembered it. I had been using it over the last month or two, and it has been really great. It’s a light mousse, so I didn’t think it would be that effective. Well, I had the old jar of Make Up For Ever HD Elixir in one of my beauty drawers. (Seriously, be sure to read all about the Elixir. The stats behind it are insane.) I forgot all about it! I mixed 2 drops of it with a dollop of HIAJ and voila! My skin felt like a million bucks!

Note: The MUFE Elixir was sent to me as a sample from the company. I speak only the truth in these blog posts. : )
