Beauty Counter - Winter Warmth Palette (Review, Look + Swatches)*

Beauty Counter is a new brand that was introduced to me at the end of 2016, while I do realize this review is a tad late, rest assured it appears that Beauty Counter launches these seasonal palettes as I see that they have a GORGEOUS Spring one up right now called the Desert Sunrise Palette that is totally screaming my name. It is a combination of warm tones that are shimmery tones that are right up my alley. 

Anyways onto the star of the show... the palette I am reviewing is the Winter Warmth palette - it is mostly a matte palette consisting of mostly cooler tones. To speak of the packaging - I really liked the sleekness of the palette, you can easily take it on the go and travel with it. The only downside is that the price point is around $75 and the packaging is just a hard cardboard which means it is not durable. 

This palette is a neutral make-up lover's dream. The shadows are buttery and smooth and even offers you a pop of purple if you want. I used the purple shade with a bit of the darker purple right next to it in my look below and added some of the darker matte brown on my lower lash line. I placed the neutral matte bone shade on my brow bone to highlight them.  I wrapped up my look with a combination of both the blushes (a sweep of each color) and used the middle highlight powder on my upper cheekbone. 


As you can see, the look really is quite neutral, but paired with the lipstick that is moisturizing and a beautiful nude, I find it just perfect. The gloss isn't sticky or tacky and I could easily wear any of these shades to work everyday. 

Until next time, XO - M.
