With Back To School season looming on the horizon, I'm taken back to a time when I was so excited to own a 64 box of Crayola crayons. When I was a child, this was the largest size. It symbolized so much to me. The possibilities were endless. I loved the names of the crayons. Even to this day, I describe color based on that 64 box.
Burnt Sienna anyone?
I think I get more excited about shopping for school supplies for my children then they do. That was a part of why I was so excited to finally acquire the 88 palette a few months back. I recently blogged that I was becoming disenchanted with my 88 palette because the colors seemed to fade quickly no matter what kind of base I used.
I've recently come to learn that is the nature of matte shadow. Ahhhhh YES! This sparked a renewed interest in my 88 palette once again. It was sitting in a drawer, unused. I do have so much makeup, I often forget that the 88 palette is hiding out patiently waiting for me to dive in & use it!
The palette comes with a small miroor in the lid. It also has two double ended sponge tip applicators. My favorite colors are the greens, darker pinks, teals & vibrant/darker blues. Many of the soft pastel colors do not show up on my skin.
I decided to challenge myself to use it at least once a week.
No sense in it's going to waste, right?
