One Month, One Palette July Picks and June Update

June Finale One Month, One Palette

I really enjoyed using my June picks for the One Month, Two Palettes series. I LOVE this Becca Blushed with Light palette. Becca blushes are great and these colors are perfect for summer. It looks like I barely touched it. Part of that is a side effect of having a couple blushes in my Project Pan but also, Becca Blushes are so pigmented that you don’t need much. Definitely a keeper.

The Morphe x Jaclyn Hill (Version 1) Palette is really nice as well. However, I found myself using the same colors over and over again (you can see I actually hit pan on a shadow!). I didn’t really touch any of the brighter colors which is a shame since a lot of them would have made for a nice summery look. I just wasn’t drawn to them at all and I’m conflicted about keeping a palette that only sees use from a couple of shadows. I’m going to hold onto it for now and I would consider de-potting the neutral shadows that I love and decluttering the remainder.

I’m super pumped about July’s choices for my One Month, One Palette for face and eye.

First up is the Makeup Geek x Kathleen Lights Highlighter Palette. I’m so glad I chose this one since it will give me an opportunity to focus on the blushes in my Project Pan. The three shades in the palette are really pretty. I especially love the center shade ‘Starlight’. I’ve been really into pink toned highlights recently. The deepest shade (‘Sunlight’) is a bit too dark for my skin tone but I think it’ll look beautiful as an eyeshadow. I’m excited to get some use out of this one.

For eyes, I chose the IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Vol. 1 Palette. This is an all matte palette with one sheer “Transforming Pearl” shadow. The formula is described as a “Matte Luxe” formula and can look a bit more satiny when applied to the eye. It has a nice mix of warm and cool toned eyeshadows which can go very natural or very smoky. I haven’t used this in quite a while (as it is with pretty much all of the palettes in this challenge) but when I first got it, I was using it all the time so I’m excited to come back to it.
