Everyday Eye Makeup Palette by Mineral Fusion

The past few months, I've started to pursue better self-care and taking time for myself. This also means working out more and trying to pay more attention to what I put on and in my body. Don't get my wrong, I still can indulge in a chick-fil-a number 4 in a heartbeat. But the balance has been key for me. Taking the time to get dressed, or fix my hair, or put on makeup are simple ways I can take time for myself. Full disclosure: RARELY do all three of those happen - ha! 



I do not even pretend to be a beauty blogger, but since my house has been overtaken by boys it seems, I've found I've become more of a girly girl. Don't be fooled, I actually don't know much about makeup. I am a creature of habit and the only thing I haven't done the same in the past ten years is that now I play around with lipstick. The bolder the better. I've worn the same eye shadow palette since High School (I know. It's embarrassing) and when Whole Foods sent me this Mineral Fusion Eye Palette they now carry I was so giddy. I can officially throw away my drug store cover girl trio and I feel like a grown up with this palette. 


So, what you really want to know: it stayed on well and everything was labeled for easy application (lid, crease, highlight, etc) and  knowing that it's free of paragons, gluten, artificial colors, phthalates and other harsh ingredients makes it a no brainier. Because it's such a great & neutral palette, I think I'll snag a few for Christmas gifts. Who doesn't love new makeup? I've also tried this brand's mascara and it was great. All of this to say, next time you need makeup and you're in Whole Foods getting groceries (or macarons), check out their beauty section. It's surprisingly awesome. There are lots of holiday exclusive gift sets, too.
