I really wasn't in the mindset yesterday to sit in front of the computer and write a post - I just watched videos while trying to de-stress and absorb training tips. Turns out if I'm not watching reviews/tutorials relating to beauty products, I'm now watching training videos for Kozmo. I tried a couple of things with him earlier today, and while he did do both pretty quickly, he's definitely not ready to do them without a lure in my hand. Oh well, one step at a time. On Thursday we're getting a private session since he's getting much more "adolescent German Shepherd," meaning that rather than watching and focusing on me he's more into the environment and ignoring all commands - he's guarding instead of learning. He's making me wish I could actually tolerate running for more than a minute at a time so that he could get more energy out each day. One of these days, I might have to see what he does if I'm on a bike (he barks at the neighbor every time he sees him ride by).
Back to the blog...So while I was thinking about what to post today, I was checking Instagram and saw a post from Hautelook that made me decide what to put up here on the blog - LORAC! The last time that Lorac was on Hautelook, the Resort Eye/Cheek Palette was the big draw. I grabbed it as almost the first thing I did that day. Well, it's back starting tomorrow! So it's the perfect time to share my swatches.
left half of the palette, bottom row has a matte black and matte dark brown along with a olive green that contains some golden shimmer - so pretty
right half of the palette, bottom row has a rosey pink matte blush and a neutral matte bronzer
All of these shades swatched very nicely on my hand. The only shade I had to build up any was the skintone shade, and that's for an understandable reason. I have grabbed a touch of the matte dark brown to use in an eye look using random single shadows and it blended beautifully. I can't wait to get that olive green on my eyes! I really need to play around with the palette and try out everything but I really recommend trying to snatch one up either from Hautelook or if you stumble across it at Nordstrom Rack (I read about that happening a week or so ago).
If you're interested in getting the Lorac Resort palette from Hautelook, it'll be up tomorrow (April 30) at 8 AM Pacific. The Balm Cosmetics is listed as an upcoming event for Friday (May 1) at 8 AM Pacific. Tarina Tarantino Beauty (ends 8 AM Pacific on Saturday, May 2) and BH Cosmetics (ends 8 AM Pacific on Friday, May 1) are both currently on sale.
Does the Lorac Resort Eye/Cheek Palette look like something you'd be interested in? Do you shop from Hautelook or avoid it because of the really slow shipping?
