Paula's Choice Makeup

Gorgeous on the Go Makeup Collection ($45 USD)

With my most recent PC order reviewed here, I scored a few awesome free gifts - this makeup set included! Right off the bat, Paula's Choice packaging is almost always exceptional. I love the size and format of this palette. It's convenient, there's no wasted space, and you get a lot of product. The pigmentation is rich, and I was initially even thinking that the shadows and blush were too dark. But after wearing both a natural and a more intense look, I was amazed. It's so versatile! I especially liked using the dark brown shadow as an eyeliner - mix with a drop of MAC fix+, and you have a classy warm brown liner, featured in my look below.

This lip gloss on the other hand is a bit too sticky and sparkly. Great packaging and a lovely versatile colour, but the smell is artificial (almost plastic-y) and the thick texture isn't for me. The box that these two products came in was also stunning - a big silver box with velvet interior.

Paula's Choice Review
Evening look using gloss, cheek products and all 4 shadows: light white over the lid, warm taupe in the crease, caramel colour in the centre of the lid and on the lower lashline, dark brown used as a eyeliner mixed with Fix+

Hello Gorgeous Dual Magnifying Mirror

Hello Gorgeous Dual Magnifying Mirror ($15 USD)

This beautiful magnifying mirror, another freebie with purchase, is weighty, high quality and very pretty. I prefer a smaller mirror for on-the-go, but this will be great for creating a pop-up vanity on vacation. The magnification is unreal! It would be EXTRA cool if there were little lights :o

See, sometimes it's really worth it to shop online. Hopefully this exchange rate won't get even worse... *crosses fingers*

Paula's Choice Samples
As always, Paula's Choice has the best
samples and trial size products to test out 
one of their best-sellers. I recently purchased 
the 1% Retinol Treatment and the
Hyaluronic Acid booster - both of which are
fabulous additions to your anti-aging 
routine to reduce fine lines and plump up 
tired skin.
