The Smouldering Eye Palette by Ciate London and Olivia Palermo: Swatches, Photos, and Quick Review

I purchased this product during the VIB Rouge Sale and I absolutely love it; So,I'm gonna keep this review short and sweet with a simple pros and cons list!


  • The shadows are very pigmented and smooth- you can tell they are very good quality.
  • The palette's packaging is very nice, durable and sophisticated.
  • It is a great travel size palette. 
  • There are many different versatile shades with different finishes. You have the warm reds and browns and cool blues and greys. You also have satins, mattes, and shimmers all in one small portable palette. I LOVE IT!!!


  • Price is a bit steep at $39
  • It doesn't come with any kind of brush. I like it when my palettes come with brushes so I dont have to remember to pack one.
  • It can be hard to open; but, that can also be a good thing because you don't one it coming open in your bag.


I took one photo with the flash to show how pretty and shimmery some of the eyeshadows are. 
The photo in natural light is more true to their color.

Get Ready With Me: School + Maybelline Superstay Better Skin Foundation Demo

I made another Youtube video! My second one to be exact lol 
Its just a Get Ready With Me video. I filmed it before going to school one day. In my last video I didn't actually speak but, in this one I did. I was kind of nervous about uploading it because I really don't like my voice. But, I feel like everyone hates their own voice to some extent lol (thats how I make myself feel better)

Its a neutral smokey eye with winged eyeliner and a bright pink lip. I really liked how this turned out. Its a good everyday look. It can be casual or fancy, in my opinion. 

Here  some photos of the finished makeup & If you want to see how I achieved this makeup, feel free to watch the video. I had a lot of fun making it, so I hope yall like it! :)

Also, in the video, I use the Maybelline Superstay Better Skin Foundation which I did a full first impression of here. :)
