Palladio Beauty Review #1!

If you'd rather shop in person than online, you can go to Sally Beauty Supply and check out the items there (in person).

Read about Palladio Beauty HERE.

Rice Paper
Buy it HERE
Another traditional product that was created from the original Rice Powder. This very unique, oil-absorbing two-sided, tissue is made with Natural Rice. The Matte side (without powder) is for blotting to absorb the excess oils and the Powdered side is for finishing. Packaged in a pull out tissue component with the convenience of purse size - very handy for the consumer. And also has two natural skin shades:
Natural for all skin tones.
Warm Beige- for all darker skin tones.
Use it as a carry-on and in-between make up corrector, finisher and refresher. Choose color as mentioned above for the proper skin shade.

Herbal Eye Liner
in Pure Black
Buy it HERE
I really like retractable eye liners!
(well, PIGMENTED ones)
This liner is awesome!!
Very pigmented, stays in place for a decent amount of time.
And it's super inexpensive!!!
This is $4.50 compared to MAC's Graphblack Technakohl Liner which is somewhere around ~$15.

Herbal Tinted Lip Balm
in Champagne
Buy it HERE
Enriched with UV filters to protect the lips, this unique lip balm formula moisturizes the lips while adding sheer color that lasts
longer than most balms.
This is a nice, hydrating, NUDE-SHADE lip balm (in a chapstick tube).
It is somewhat sheer, but it's so slick and smooth- feels great on the lips!

See the pretty golden shimmers? :)

Baked Blush
in Rosey
Buy it HERE
Our baked blushes are a "Wet-Dry" application! Apply it dry for a discreet look and wet for a dramatic effect!

Gorgeous pale pink!
But in person it looks peachy pink!!
(it looks washed out in the photos below)

Trio Baked Eye Shadow
in Metallics
Buy it HERE
If you’re a fan of shimmery long wear eye products, browse through the selection of baked eye shadows available at Palladio. Baked shadows are generally more water resistant than regular pan shadows are, and many boast shimmery satin finishes.
For a quick and easy daytime look, choose one of the multi-colored pans and brush the lightest shade over your entire lid. Then, apply the medium shade in the crease. Finish the look by wetting an angled eye brush and using it to apply the darkest shade as a liner. Apply them dry for a natural look or wet for an intense, dramatic effect.
These kind of remind me of the MAC LE trio Baked Shadows from "RED SHE SAID" Collection... Except tons cheaper!


pigmented, shimmery, metallic
I need more of these!
Only $8!!!

Beaute Cosmetics Review #2!

Check out my other Beaute Review HERE!
I love Beaute!!

Liqui-Gel Stain
Buy it HERE
Sheer berry, beautiful on both pale and dark skins.
Benefits & Tips:
Easily blends due to its unique liqui-gel texture
Incredibly long lasting pigment sets to stain the skin for long wearing color
Can be easily combined with Luminous Volume Gloss for a custom lip look
To apply The Liqui-gel Stain for Cheeks and Lips as blush:
Beauté Creative Director Beau Nelson recommends applying on freshly moisturized skin or over cream or liquid foundation that has not yet been powdered. Apply to one cheek at a time using the doe foot applicator to dot the stain on the desired area. Start with a little product and build to desired intensity, the stains are very pigmented. Working quickly use the Beauté Foundation brush, fingers or a damp sponge brush to blend the color to the desired intensity. Repeat to build color.
“These stains unique liqui-gel texture allows them to be easily blended for about 12 seconds before setting and staining the skin for long wearing color. The result Is a stain that never “grabs” or “streaks” leaving the skin looking fresh and radiant.”
To Apply The Liqui-Gel Stain for Cheeks and Lips to stain the lips:
Using the doe foot applicator, apply stain to clean, dry lips, starting in the center of the lips and moving outwards. For a sheer stain use only a touch of color and use the Beauté Lip Brush, or a finger to blend the stain over the lip. For a deeper or brighter stain, apply to the entire lip and allow to dry, repeat until desired intensity is achieved.
“I created the Liqui-Gel Stains to complement our Luminous Volume Gloss collection, there are endless combinations to try. Experiment and find your new favorite combination”
Suggested Combinations:
Fever Stain + Lady Stardust Gloss = Sheer moist red lips with a hint of sparkle
Fever Stain + Urge Gloss = Sheer glossy candy apple red
Flouron Stain + Girlie Show Gloss = Bright but soft baby pink
Neon Stain + Chimera Gloss = Radiant shimmering coral
Harlot Stain + Heroine Gloss = Glossy plum stain
WOW! Seriously this is a gorgeous vibrant color!
I put it on my lips to stain them for hours and just apply any kind of gloss ontop!
You can achieve hundreds of looks with this one lip stain- it's insane!!

Luminous Volume Gloss
in Skin Trade
Buy it HERE
Expertly balanced sheer creamy beige.
The only bummer about this was the brush- somehow is frayed when I took it out of the tube for the first time...
It's okay though, because the color is amazing!
It's definitely a warmer nude shade.
Perfect for golden-based skin-tones.
Even though I am more rose-based, it still looks lovely.
Benefits & Tips
Moisturizes and hydrates
Plumps and shapes
Smoothes fine lines and wrinkles
Defines surface area
Apply Beauté Cosmetics Luminous Volume Glosses as needed to moisturize and plump the lips. Apply to clean, dry lips with the easy to use Taklon brush throughout the day for seductive volumized shine.
Luminous Volume Gloss can be applied under or over lip color and/or pencil

Luzern Laboratories Product Reviews

Organic Cosmeceuticals

About Luzern Labs:
Cosmecutical Anti-Aging Actives
In short, Cosmecutical Grade products use active ingredients at higher levels than "over the counter" products in order to get more consistent and significant results. Luzern spares no expense in formulating with the most effective anti-aging ingredients, no matter how expensive or rare in order to obtain these results. These are formulating principles we have always held to, and ones that set us apart from other brands. Luzern products contain an average of 80% Bio-Active Ingredients. Eight times the average of other brands.
Bio-Swiss Certified Extracts

Bio-Swiss cultivation and extraction, produces bio-available activity with unsurpassed power to protect the skin from the negative impact of chemical and environmental damage.
Preservative Free/Pure Processing

Avoiding the most commonly used additives such as parabens, petrochemicals, formaldehyde's, synthetic preservatives, colours and fragrances, can help you avoid irritation, breakouts and the pre-mature aging of the skin.
