Hey guys! How’s it going?
Well believe it or not, I’m STILL settling in and unpacking from the move. We had a major plumbing issue in the master bathroom that took over a week to get fixed. In a nutshell, they found multiple leaks, had to go through the wall in the music room, and then ended up having to replace the entire tub/shower faucet works and the showerhead. But it’s all taken care of now and things are finally getting back to normal.
Anyhow, today I have a review for you guys on the Wanderlust palette from LA Girl. I picked this palette up at CVS awhile back as I had some ExtraBucks rewards, so I got it for almost nothing. I got this palette because I really enjoy using the Get Feverish palette from LA Girl (I did a full review of that palette you can read here in case you missed it), and I wanted to try another palette from them.
So let’s get going!
This palette retails for I believe $9.99. It contains 12 shadows in a mix of matte and shimmer finishes. This palette is part of LA Girl’s Fanatic palette collection. FYI if you didn’t know, LA Girl is also a cruelty-free brand, which is always a bonus.
The color story of this palette totally screams summer. The top row is filled with various shades of pink, while the bottom row is pretty much all blues.
The palette is packaged in a sleek, matte black plastic compact, which looks and feels more expensive than it is. Inside the cover is a edge to edge mirror, which makes this palette great for travel.
The formula of the shadows in these palettes in the Fanatic line are really good. Especially for a drugstore brand. They’re soft and very pigmented. They swatch well and also perform great on the eyes. Staying power is good too. They last all day on me, but I always wear an eye primer/base so shadows can reach their full potential.
I do have one complaint about this palette. Unless you want to do some monochromatic looks, it’s hard to pull a full look together using just this palette. You’d need to bring in other palettes or single shadows. But the colors in this palette are really beautiful regardless how you use them. I also wanted to note the icy purple/blue on the far right of the bottom row works best as a topper as it’s a little on the sheer side. But it looks gorgeous when added on top of another blue or purple shadow (or for a real kick, try it over a black base). One other minor complaint is the shadows don’t have names, but really that’s not a huge deal.
So how about some swatches?
If you’re looking for a colorful palette that won’t break the bank, I highly recommend checking this one out. LA Girl is a newer to me brand (I’ve known about them for years but have only recently started trying their products), but so far I’m impressed with what I’ve tried and looking forward to trying even more from them.
Ok that should do it for today! Have you tried this palette or any other palette or products from LA Girl? What do you think? Sound off below in the comments.
As always, thank you all so much for reading! Love you guys! I’ll see you again soon in my next post!
