Haul and review of Born Pretty Store

I picked up a few things online from bornprettystore.com and wanted to share with you all what I got so here goes!
 This is the contour and highlight palette that I ordered. I love the packaging! It is sleek and I don't think the picture does it justice.
The mirror is a great size and it comes with a little brush to apply the powders. There are 2 different colors of highlight powders (white and beige) and 2 different colors of contour powders (medium brown and dark brown).

I also purchased 12 of their pigments. They don't have their names on them and they came in these tiny round containers that have the name "Wendy" on the lids. 8 of the pigments are shimmery and the other 4 are glitters. The colors shown above are a lime green, baby blue, peach and turquoise.

Pigment colors: Baby pink, hot pink, blue and gun metal.

4 glitter colors: Green, purple, yellow gold, and pink.
The swatches:

Highlight and contour powders 

 Colors: Lime green, baby blue, peach and turquoise.

Colors: Baby pink, hot pink, blue and gun metal.

Glitter colors: Green, purple, yellow gold and pink.

4 Color Contour Face Powder Palette $10.08 USD
12 Colors Shimmer Glitter Eyeshadow Makeup Comestic $5.59 USD
My overall thoughts
I really liked all of the products that I received. The contour palette is very nice and I like that it has 2 different colors of highlight powders and contour powders. The only thing I did not care for was the brush that came with the palette. It is too small and the bristles were hard. The 8 pigments and 4 glitters are very nice! They are super pigmented and look even better with an eye shadow primer underneath. I really have no complaints about the pigments at all. The born pretty store website is very easy to navigate and they have a variety of products to choose from. They also ship for free and internationally; however if you want your products to get to you faster I suggest paying to have your products shipped, because it will take forever for you to receive your order if you go for the free shipping. All their products are shipped out of Hong Kong. It took 5 weeks for me to receive my order, but I am happy with everything I received! Hope you all enjoyed this review!

I absolutely love doing celebrity inspired makeup looks! Jennifer Lopez is one of my absolute favorite celebrities! She has such flawless looking skin and her makeup always looks very dewy and fresh. I was inspired to do Jennifer's dewy, bronzed look after seeing the cover of makeup artist Scott Barnes book "About Face."  I will put the pic below!

Scott Barnes is a famous makeup artist and has done makeup for Jennifer Lopez, Kate Hudson, Beyonce, Gwyneth Paltrow, Celine Dion and several other celebrities. For more information about this incredibly talented and famous makeup artist please visit his website at http://www.scottbarnes.com.

Bornprettystore.com review coming soon!

After 4 long weeks I finally got my order in from bornprettystore.com. My package came all the way from Hong Kong which explains why it took forever to get to little ole El Paso, TX here in the USA! Ha ha! My first impressions of the products are good, but I need to use them for a good week to see how great the quality really is. Stay tuned for my review lovelies!:)
