So my bag usually has a ton load of stuff in it and never enough room (remind me to check out the kangaroo keeper) so I never want to add any more bulky items to it but I really needed a small makeup palette. Along came the beauty book. It has 28 eyeshadows and 20 lip colours. The magnetic strip that allows it to close like a book is great, but just for safety when it’s in the bottom of my bag I add a cute hair band to ensure it doesn’t open. These eyeshadows are a mixture of semi-matte, and shimmery colours. To prevent eyeshadow particles from sticking to your lippie colours just add a small piece of tissue to separate the two sections when closed. The only downside is no browns for neutral looks so I am still on the lookout for a palette for suffice all my needs. In case you’re wondering there is a warm collection beauty book with browns but I wasn’t impressed with the eyeshadow colour variations in this one.
For the lip colours you have some that has the sheer colour payoff of a lipgloss and the dark colours with a bit more pigmentation of a lipstick. I tend to reach for the medium pinks in the book.
Do I like it, love it, leave it or it’s just OK: Verdict- I love it! Super great for work and play, hardly takes up any space in your handbag. I take it everywhere I go. Even my coworkers want to get this.
