Purminerals Jupiter Ascending Palette Review ~

 Purminerals new Jupiter Ascending palette is inspired by the film Jupiter Ascending. 

Destined for great and extraordinary things, Jupiter Jones turns celestial dreams into reality. Recreate her signature look with six NEW and EXCLUSIVE eye shadow shades, pout enhancing lip gloss and liquid precision eyeliner.

The colors are a great neutral mix with shimmer. It's even more complimentary with my blue eyes as browns and pinks really make them pop. It's very easy to take this palette from a workday to a night out given all the combinations. 

The first look, I used Majesty in the crease. I then highlighted with destiny on the lid and highlighted with cosmos on the eyebrow line. I've played with my fair share of liquid liners and was ecstatic to see this is a pen-style eyeliner since I tend to have trouble with a brush with liquid.

Some pens seem to not have that intense black color or staying power but this black nicely defines and has all day hold. It's also not crusty and crackly by the time it dries. It's great to draw the signature wing on the outer lid.
I was also pleased to see the color of the gloss as dark shades don't look good on my skin-tone. This pink gloss is shimmery and BONUS - lights up as soon as you remove the cap.
The second look, I used Jupiter in the crease and highlighted with cosmos followed by the liner.

The palette values at $124 but can be purchased from Purminerals or Ulta for just $29.

Polish Me Silly Mermaid Tears

I love the fact that so many indie polishes offer mini samples. By the time all of us start loading up our stashes, we know that we will probably never use a whole bottle. Thermals are so fun in that they are doing something different every time you look at them.

Cold Water

Warm water

 Cold to Warm

This is three coats of Mermaid Tears. It's a dark teal jelly when it's cold and a light yellowish lime when it's really warm. I added the adorable little seashells from Born Pretty Store. They had great staying power but the gold did start coming off after a few days.

I then stamped the scalloped image from MoYou Pro Plate 01 and Sinful Snow Me White.
