Maybelline The City Mini Palettes are part of the Summer 2017 collection.  There are 6 palettes with 6 different eye shadows - this is Chill Brunch Neutrals.
 The other colors are Girls Night Glimmer, Roof Top Bronzes, Urban Jungle, Graffiti Pops, & Downtown Sunrise- though small, they are handy - for summer you could do the entire face with just these colors: highlighter, bronzer and eye shadows - some colors have a little shimmer which is perfect for the evening.  And if you are not crazy about shimmer, just put a little on the center of the lid and it will brighten the eye.

I am liking this new Thickening Lotion from AG Hair - pour some into the hand and work thru damp hair - then blow dry.  It is not heavy and gave nice body to my hair which I need with the heat & humidity. (no stiffness)

This is a good value - L'Oreal the Magic Lumi gave good coverage for under the eyes and can be used to brighten up other areas like the laugh lines.  It is a highlighter but works great as a concealer.

I put this on heavily so you could see - a nice color without being dry. This color is Fair.

Also from this line is Powder Glow Illuminator
I bought 2 colors: Golden and Rose - these are easily highlighter, bronzer and/or eye shadow.  Perfect for summer and winter - where ever you want a glow with soft shimmer.  These are frequently on sale so I might go for back ups since they can be used for more than 1 purpose.

And while we are on highlighters I finally got around to ordering Laura Geller's Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator - gorgeous!
From top: Ballerina - Peach Glow - Gilded Honey (photo taken near bright window)
This is more 'powdery' than the L'Oreal palettes - completely different colors - so I needed both!
I liked this so well......I bought a 2nd set because I am afraid they will disappear!
This set comes with a mirror & double-ended brush - these colors can be used all year - and this would make a nice gift!

Have you seen the new Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette ?
PSA: Urban Decay Just Dropped a Hot New Naked Palette
 Wow, it looks like I have everyone of these colors.....somewhere (see below)!
I was shocked at how neutral these colors are - nothing that shouts 'original'.  For over $50 I am going to pass - afterall, some of the fall/winter collections are coming out and will be available by Aug.


I enjoy reading diff bloggers when they show their make up 'bags' - I can't imagine having so little product that it could fit in 1 bag!  This is not even the beginning.......

Who made this mess???............ ~ must be the dressing room of a beauty blogger!

Time for lunch!!
The greens are very nice this year:

  8. HI there - I'm linking with you today from Grandma'sSocial. I love my AG hair products (my hairdresser always recommends them and used them when I'm in her chair) but I haven't used this thikkening lotion. Seems my hair can always use that. I love your haircut, btw. And the swirl blushes are fun colors - I need a peach. Happy summer to you!
