where'd you order your naked palette from? I ordered mine today from urban decay but I'm hella scared that they might say it's out of stock on monday :/
I ordered my palette from Sephora a few weeks ago and it sold out six days later, so the demand for the palettes seems to be decreasing :) I’m pretty sure there will be no problem with your order if they already sent you a confirmation email.
They contact you right away if they’re out of stock on something. A day before I ordered it on Sephora, I placed an order through Urban Decay but 10 minutes after I received my order confirmation email, they called me and said they didn’t have any in stock.
wow your blog is amazing!
Thanks Angela! I haven't checked TKB for 2 years now... I didn't know they have these kind of palettes now... I really want to replace my MAC palette, my option was actually UNII palette because I really need something really sturdy... What do you think of the TKB palette compared to UNII?
You’re welcome! :) I was deciding between the Z-Palette, UNII, and TKB palettes. I chose TKB since it was the cheapest option out of all three and was similar to the Z-Palette. The TKB palette is pretty basic— it’s cardboard covered with matte black paper, has a magnetic sheet inside, and has a magnetic closure. It’s really good for the price but the downside is that it only comes in one size. I’m glad I chose the TKB though since all I wanted was to decrease the number of palettes I had. If you’re looking for something sturdier, well made, and great for travel, I’d definitely go for the UNII. It looks like it holds double the pans the TKB holds, it’s made out of sturdy plastic, and has a secure latch closure. I love that it comes in different colors! If price wasn’t an issue, I would have chosen the UNII :)
No its okay! lol I called Birchbox and there sending me the Befine Cleanser so that was really helpful. My skins overly overly sensitive so I wasn't surprised
Wow, props to Birchbox for customer satisfaction! Hope the cleanser’s better :)
did you use it in place of your moisturizer?
I did and it worked well for me :)
I know me too! It's my first one im getting impatient lol
Have you received any shipping information yet? I haven’t :/
Hey, I hate to be a pain and ask you something unrelated to your blog, but I've been searching everywhere to find a drop down menu (where you have the beauty brands in a list) that will actually work on my blog! I was wondering if you could share the code? Feel free to reply in my ask box, thanks.
Check your ask box :)

I really love your blog! It's super neat, organized and interesting! I just had to follow this one =) ! Thanks for the follow as well! And Angela, I am hoping to be a nurse as well! I wish you luck on your studies!
Thanks so much! Your reviews and how-to’s are great. Good luck with your studies!! :)
What do you use to make foundation stay on longer without it looking cakey? I have a primer for my mineral foundation but it makes my face break out and also doesn't keep me from sweating off my makeup.
Angela: I actually don’t use primer because I personally feel it clogs my pores even when it claims not to. Instead, I apply a lightweight moisturizer and have it sink in right before I apply my foundation (Benefit’s Hello Flawless, which is a powder) and that seems to work well for me—no breakouts, no caking, no wear-off (my skin is combination-oily, for reference). I’m not sure if that method would work well for mineral foundation though. What were your experiences with other foundation types? I’ve tried so many different types and brands of foundation before I finally found one that worked for me. It might take some time and lots of patience to find the perfect solution or combination but it is so worth it. I hope this helps in some way!
Rose: To be honest, it depends on the type of day it is. If it’s cold, I avoid using too much powder because it will start to crunch and show cracks, and if it’s warm I usually just put moisturizer (Cindy Crawford: Meaningful Beauty Maintenance 1) then apply either MAC Pro Long Wear foundation which is a liquid foundation or I apply Bare Minerals which is mineral powder. Mineral Powder for days when I feel my skin doesn’t have any issues and MAC Pro Long Wear if I feel that I will be out for a long time and if my skin seems to not agree with me. To set my liquid foundation, I usually put some kind of setting powder, either Lancome’s Matte Buff 2 or Bare Mineral’s Tainted Veil with a powder brush, but again this is when I feel that I will be out for a long time or if I am going somewhere special. Overall, if I’m not going anywhere special, I try to avoid wearing foundation and usually stick with moisturizer.
In addition, you should consider the environment you live in and the way you apply your foundation. Sometimes using your fingers than a brush can fix the texture of your foundation on your skin! Also, it is best to let your moisturizer sink in for a while before applying to your foundation unless you use it as a way to lighten up the tone of the foundation (if so, make sure to put them together at the same time). Experiment and let us know how it turned out! Hope this helps!
