Profusion Neo Perle (Blue) Eyeshadow Palette LookBook

Gosh.  I am beyond obsessed with The Avett Brothers lately.  They're a band I've always come back around to for the past 5 or 6 years but when I come back I just fall more in love.  I'm seeing them in August as they're opening for the Zac Brown Band and I am beyond excited as it'll be my first experience seeing them live. I cannot wait!  If you don't know them, you should check them out.  I would suggest starting with "The Ballad of Love and Hate", then "I and Love and You", followed by "Kick Drum Heart".  If you're not hooked after that then you won't be hooked at all.  But you probably will be.  And then Mumford And Sons are back.  It's just a good time for music, kids.

ANYBEANS.  I've been playing around with the sparkly Neo Perle Profusion palette I picked up at Ulta for $2.99.  Such a deal.  I love this palette.  I love this brand.  It seriously goes to show that you can get great quality for a low price nowadays.  Claps for you, drugstore makeup.  You're my literal favorite.  If you're looking for swatches, take a wander over yonder.  If you'd like a little peak at the other two palettes that are in this happy little Neo Perle family, take a gander at my newest video!  I should be swatching those guys over the weekend and will try to get them up for you next week.  I've been busy playing with one of the other palettes that I bought the same day as the other two profusion palettes so I'll probably also have a review and lookbook combo platter of that one coming to you next week as well.  I have lofty expectations for next week apparently!

Here are some of the looks I created using this palette.  I liked that you're able to get neutral looks but add a fun pop of color with the blues or greens.  I actually absolutely LOVED the matte shades, which sometimes are the less impressive of the bunch in a lower budget palette.  They gave such a beautiful natural look that I totally dug.  At the total opposite end of the spectrum, you could get such an amazingly glam look out of this palette.  It's so versatile and I am IN.LOVE.

The Editor In Chief making sure I'm staying on task.

So yeah, pretty sure you all need this palette in your life.  I'm in love and I think you will be as well!  Like I said, I'll definitely be playing around with the other two over the next couple weeks.  I have some lofty expectations after this one.  If you're looking to snag this palette, I found it at Ulta at the checkout line in with all the mini-sized products or you can buy them on Ulta's website here!  

Have you given this a try?  Is there another budget beauty brand that just keeps surprising you every time you try something new?  I'd love to know!

Also, I changed the look of the website a little bit.  I'm trying to make everything a little more cohesive.  Facebook is proving to be a challenge but I'll make it work.
