The Stardust Palette has twelve gorgeous shades. Once you open the box, you’ll find a book inside with two compartments. One one side is the Stardust Palette and on the other side are the Glamour Dust Glitter Pigment, Better Than Sex Mascara, and Shadow Insurance Primer.

Anastasia Beverly Hills: Shadow Couture World Traveler Palette

I’ve finally received the Anastasia Beverly Hills World Traveler Palette. It’s sold out everywhere. I’ve checked at Sephora and Ulta. I ended up ordering it from It cost $30. The palette is beautiful inside and out. The packaging is really nice as well. The gold and black packaging looks very classy. Inside the palette there is a small mirror and a dual-side brush.

The ABH Shadow Couture palette consists of 12 eyeshadows with different finishes, from matte, subtle shimmers to bold metallic. They are soft, pigmented, easy to blend and don’t create too much fallout. The sizes of the pans of shadows aren’t huge, which may be disappointing for some, however I’d rather have many slightly smaller pans rather than a few big ones.

Top Three Primers Must Have

Smashbox Photo Finish Light Primer

This primer is very lightweight. It’s oil free! I’ve been using it for almost two years. This primer helps to mattify the skin and reduce shine in all areas of the skin. It elongates makeup length by a few hours. It helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores. I’m in love with this primer and this is my favorite! It’s $36. You can purchase it at Macy’s, Ulta or Sephora.

Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer

I love love love this primer! After Smashbox, this is my favorite. This primer cost $39. It comes in a glass jar and apparently contains antioxidants as well as peptides. It acts to blur the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and pores. It has a very light fresh floral scent and a very creamy, thick texture so remember a little goes a long way. This primer contains Vitamins E and C to help fight free radical damage and brighten the skin.

Laura Mercier foundation Primer – Radiance

It’s known for minimizing the look of imperfections with a radiant finish. The price is $34. It’s creamy, liquid primer with a pearlescent. When worn alone, this primer does indeed leave skin looking more radiant, and under makeup the glow only slightly peeks through, depending on how much foundation, powder, or tinted moisturizer you apply over it. Overall, Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance is like candlelight in a squeeze tube. It gives the perfect healthy glow to face and cheeks without every looking over done.
