Sephora Haulin

 I finally got my haul in the mail! So far the only thing I'm disappointed with is one of the Smashbox eyeshadow palettes. I ordered both the Iconic 4 Shadow Palette and the Classyfied 6 Shadow palette and the difference in quality between them is like night and day.

The Iconic shadows are creamy to the touch, pigmented and have a lovely finish. The Classyfied shadows are hit and miss. Most of them are hard, chalky and not very pigmented, however there are 2-3 that have decent color payoff and blend nicely.
Smashbox Iconic Palette $12

 I also added a Stila travel palette in Aspen to my order to qualify for free shipping. The colors are better than I thought they would be, and the quality is good.

 The drawings on the UD Show Pony Palette are just as creepy as I thought they looked in the online pics. I have some old acrylic paints lying around so I've decided I'm going to put my non-existent art skills to use and paint something over the package, lol.

The shadows in this palette have the same great UD quality I've come to expect and I can see myself getting a lot of use from this palette. On a side note, there is a UD Preen palette on right now for $16, I almost ordered it until I realized the colors are the same as Show pony, just diff, non-creepy packaging.

Show Pony also came with a mini Primer Potion and 24/7 eyeliner pencil. This was my first experience with the 24/7 pencils and I'm super impressed! My bank account won't let me drop $20 a piece on some eyeliners anytime soon lol, but a few of these are being added to my wishlist.

  1. I don't know how I missed this post, but I love your haul! I just bought the UD Show Pony box too and I was looking at the Stilla sets that they had for $10. I decided not to get them but good to know that they have great pigmentation.

    I can't wait to play with my UD shadow box :)

  2. I love the colors in the Show Pony palette, and the stila palette is great too! I wasn't expecting the quality of the Stila palette to be as good as it is for $10!
