Spring is definitely upon us!  What better way to celebrate it than to wear soft, creamy shades on the tips and toes?  Zoya heralds the coming of spring with six creamy, soft shades (and one shining shimmering purple) in its new spring collection called Charming.  Charming also features three spring shades of lipstick called Violete, Belle and Brooke which I will be featuring and swatching in a separate entry, so stay tuned for that!

I've always been intrigued by how affordable Jesse's Girl products are.  What's surprising is that the company actually churns out good quality products and not some crappy dollar store quality cosmetics.  In particular, the Jesse's Girl Backstage Collection palettes were a pleasant surprise.  Jesse's Girl came up with the Backstage Collection that features two eyeshadow palette- the Sounds of the City which comprise of cool neutral to smoky shades, and the Natural Nudes palette, composed of warmer neutrals.  

Below are swatches of the two palettes and a 20% off COUPON CODE after the jump!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette Swatches, Makeup Look, Review

I purchased the  Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance way back in November 2016, after all the hype and accolades it received on blogs and social media, and after I watched Stephanie Nicole on YouTube say that this was one of the best (if not the best) palettes of 2016 that she's tried. I didn't want to feel too skeptical about it, but I was.  

I was also hesitant to purchase it because I don't really use a lot of pinks, magentas and hues in that color family on my eyes. I prefer neutrals, bronzes and earth colors for my eye shadows.  However, I was definitely intrigued, so when the Sephora VIB sale rolled around, I quickly snagged this palette, and posted a look on my Instagram.  However, this is the first time that I am formally reviewing this palette.

The Modern Renaissance palette has fourteen shades (14 x .02 shadows) in neutral, rose, berry and plum tones.  It also comes with a double-sided brush.  The colors are very appropriate for fall, but are versatile enough to be worn year-round.
