Recent Purchases & A Dupe

I was at K-mart the other day filling a Rx so I thought I would check out the Halloween makeup.  Of course I had to pick up a Style Watch magazine too, It's one of my favorite magazines to get the latest scoop on the trends of the season.

 I picked up this Fantasy Makers palette from Wet n' Wild thinking it would be similar to NYX's glitter palette. It wasn't :( This was was kind of dry, especially the top layer, when I pressed my finger in it a little more I noticed it was creamier, but the swatch of it was chunky and uneven and almost impossible to blend out evenly, kind of a waste of $3.99 if you ask me, but i'm still going to try again to make it work. The lashes aren't all that great either. They lashes kind of point downwards so it doesn't give my eyes a flattering shape and even if I curl them the curl won't last for more than 10 minutes (I've tried w/ similar styles). The glitter on the other hand was fabulous! 
The glitter is very fine and sparkly and I would even say it's a perfect dupe for MAC's 3D silver glitter. The best part is you get 5.4g for only $2.99! They also had this glitter in white, silver and red. I'm thinking about going back for the red one. 



Have any of you tried these Fantasy Makers makeup products?

SOrry to hear those first two products didn't work out for you! It's such a disapointment when you buy something that fails to impress, or in this case, even work!

Just a heads up about the glitter palette you should by some wood nail sticks and really mix up the color in the pan and they work a lot better. Sure it does not look as pretty anymore but you can use the product! Xo
