-Palette includes: 11 eyeshadows, 1 dual ended synthetic bristles brush, 1 mirror

Debut- earthy green with slight shimmer

Fame- charcoal black, matte
I have decided to try this palette out since it looked so much like Urban Decay's Naked. The eyeshadows are pigmented but also chalky. There is a mix of matte, and shimmery finish eyeshadows. The brush quality is very good.
I have tried some of the colors on my lids and they are pretty bendable. I did however need an eyeshadow primer to prevent them from creasing.
In my opinion its a great palette but not for the price. I would not pay $54 for it! I'm glad that I had a 30% off coupon code. Even though this palette resembles Urban Decay Naked a lot and it's full price is the same I don't think that the eyeshadow quality is as good.
What's great about Julep is that all of their products are Paraben and Sulfate free. Also, this palette has "Julep's lid-smoothing NS anti-aging Power Cell Complex".

Mary Kay Starter Kit
I have decided to become a Mary Kay beauty consultant. The first step was to order my my starter kit which is $100 plus shipping. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of products that the kit contained.
I have selected to receive their liquid foundation instead of the mineral powder one. I am currently using one of them in color Ivory 4 and I like the coverage that it provides.
The bag is of a very good quality and is very spacious. It contains a neat organizer insert and many pockets. It's great for traveling and to keep everything organized.
I have signed up for my personal website where my clients can make purchases directly from me. It costs $30 per year. I am trying to start with offering free shipping on order of $25 or more. Hopefully, it will help to attract more customers. The website address is www.marykay.com/ytahmazov

Awesome makeup brushes from Ebay for $9.99
I have decided to risk and order this kabuki brush set from Ebay which reminds me of Sigma brushes. I really like them so far. They don't shed much, are very soft and apply makeup well. They are made of synthetic bristles. This kit contains 10 brushes. The only negative aspect is that they come from China, therefore it takes a while before they get to you. I can provide a link to this particular seller if any of you are interested.
