{CLOSED} Cosmetique Review & {Giveaway #10} - Beauty on a Budget

I recently received the Beauty Boutique Blockbuster from Cosmetique, and I've tested it out during the past week or two when getting ready for the day. The Beauty Boutique Blockbuster is a huge palette that includes 24 eyeshadows, 12 lip colors and three blushes with a blush brush, two lip brushes and two double-ended eyeshadow applicators! It is a best-seller from Cosmetique, and I can see why - having so many options in one palette is awesome! I hate having so many separate eye shadow cases piled up in my makeup bag - most of the time I don't even look through them all to find what I want because it's too much work.


When I first used the Beauty Boutique Blockbuster, I was reminded of when I was a little girl and would have fun playing dress up and putting on makeup from those cheap mini makeup palettes of eye shadow (anyone remember those?) I thought eye shadow went on your eyebrows so my parents have photos of me with bright purple eyebrows. Anyway, it was fun to feel like I was "playing dress-up" again with so many options in this palette from Cosmetique. Most of the eyeshadows were neutral colors, which I like since I normally stick with neutral shades. However, there was a black and dark blue and purple, which were nice for accenting or an evening look. The one thing I felt this palette missed was a dark green, although there is a light mint green color at least. 

I liked the blushes - all three shades matched well with my skin tone. And probably my favorite part of this palette is the different shades of lipstick because then I can mix and match to find the right color for me! There are some pretty gold and nudes, shimmery pinks, and of course some darker reds. I did find that the lip colors were too dry to apply with the lip brush so I used my finger instead to get enough color. 



My Opinion
 I enjoyed having so many options in one palette with the Beauty Boutique Blockbuster from Cosmetique. It was fun to try new shades, and I like that many of the colors are more neutral and not anything extreme like hot pink or neon blue (like they were in the palettes I had as a kid!) Plus, at only $25, it's a money-saver to have so many shadow, blush, and lip shades at your disposal rather than purchasing several single eyeshadows or lipsticks!

I remember my cousin and I using all my mom's old makeup (oh yeah, there were lots of bright blues and purples, lol). We thought it was hilarious and took pictures of each other. Little did I know she kept the photos all these years and posted them on Facebook last year! LOL
