LORAC Private Affair Palette and a Bachelorette Party

I guess this is the first post of 2011. I have no time to do crazy, outrageous make up looks. However, I promise a few updates between now and the start of summer. Also, my makeup mirror light is out. And it's hard to do makeup without it. Hopefully, I'll get that fixed tomorrow or Friday. I mean all I need to do is find this tiny light bulb. Anyways, a couple weeks ago I finally caved and bought the LORAC Private Affair palette. I was intrigued by it's dark plum eyeshadow with red glitter in it. Also, the color pay of it was amazing. However, once I applied it I noticed it was really soft and so it created a lot of fallout under my eyes. So if you use this palette definitely put on your foundation and concealer AFTER you do your eyes. The palette itself comes with six colors: a shimmer champagne, shimmer gold, soft shimmer brown, shimmer grey taupe, dark burgundy with red glitter and the dark plum with red glitter. Yeah, it's kind of irritating these colors aren't named but here is a link to the swatches of them. Compliments to Temptalia. I thought this palette would be the perfect look for a bachelorette party I went to the weekend before spring break. I paired the look with the Lady Gaga 2 viva glam lipstick from MAC. All proceeds from the MAC viva glam collection go toward AIDs research, so it's definitely a good line to check out.

Used from the LORAC palette: dark burgundy on the lid, dark plum blended into the crease, champagne  color as a highlight.
