I have a definite soft spot for all-in-one palettes.
So when I received the Love Your Selfie 2 complete palette from PUR Cosmetics introduced following the success of last year’s original Love Your Selfie, I was psyched! Look how gorgeous even the packaging is!
It’s a perfect, easy to reach for palette with almost everything I need to create a fall look that’s “selfie ready”. In fact, they even sent along a selfie ring! except I have no idea what to do with it. (If you do, please let me know ;))
Let’s take a look and see what’s included in this beautiful box.
First, it’s a fine travel-friendly kit. It measures 5″ x 6.5″, and is easy to pop into a suitcase or even a tote bag.
Inside the PUR Love Your Selfie 2 palette, there are:
- 8 powder eyeshadows
- 3 face products: highlighter, blush, contour and the contour can be used as brow powder
- a travel size PUR Fully Charged Mascara
- PUR Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Focal Point
- PUR Lipgloss in Silhouette
The eyeshadows in the pans look like they’re going to be cool tones and some are, but several of them are metallics that give off a warm glow. As a result, I think anyone – warm or cool-toned – can wear this palette. The shades are perfect for fall and because of the metallic sheen, they’ll be perfect for the holiday season as well. Let’s take a closer look:
- Headshot: the palest peach matte that’s perfect for the inner corner or under the brow bone though sometimes I like to use it on my lids for a wide awake look
- Statuesque: this peach satin shade is just about exactly my skin tone and it doesn’t show up on me, but as a result, it’s a perfect base shade
- Panorama: a stunning copper metallic
- Abstract: a beautiful bronze metallic
- Pose: just slightly deeper than Headshot, this light peach matte is also great for the inner corner, under the brow bone
- Sketch: a deep rose gold metallic
- Megapixel: fabulous gold metallic that’s not too yellow
- Paparazzi: charcoal gray with shimmery gold flecks – just plain amazing!
My swatches were taken in bright early autumn sunlight WITHOUT primer, so I think my swatches look a bit lighter than reality because of the strong light and lack of primer. Sorry about that. You really need to see these shades to appreciate their beauty because the pigmentation really is great but not overpowering. I think this is a perfect palette for women over 40 because you get glamorous but completely wearable shades.
The shadows and cheek colors are smooth and buttery. I don’t get any dustup when I use them. I do apply them over primer, and they definitely stay put without fading till I take them off. Their nourishing feel is due to free radical-fighting antioxidant Vitamin E that moisturizes, heals and protects the skin from the environment – a very nice addition to the formula.
I love the range and variety of shades that allow me to create soft daytime looks and deeper, more arresting nighttime looks. If you’re a fan of smokey eyes, Paparazzi is just the thing.
The lip pencil and gloss are beautiful raisin shades. Love ’em both, and they work so well together.
