The formula is slightly thicker than some glosses, and is therefore longer-wearing, but it isn't in the least bit sticky. It has a gorgeous shine and iridescent finish that catches the light beautifully. It has a light, warm fragrance that reminds me of Crème Brûlée, but it is neither overpowering, nor long-lasting.

From ponytails to extension strips, Hairdo styles will inspire you to really make hair the one of the strongest features of your Halloween look. The variety of shades, styles and clip-on options will make it very easy for you to transform your hairstyle to enhance your costume. They have a wide range of fun styles from which to choose, and you can find them at Ulta, QVC and Amazon.
And if you are planning on staying in to binge-watch Halloween movies instead of going out on the town, then you might want to wear a different kind of mask instead! Why not have it a mini-spa night pamper-fest! The great news is that you can still hand out candy because your fluffy slippers, bathrobe and sheet mask will make your trick-or-treaters think that you are in costume! For affordable and fun sheet masks, try out Masque Bar’s Pretty Animalz ($3.99 each

Overall Assessment: These are definitely great options for Halloween, but I have to confess that I am taking mini-spa night pamper-fest because I have to be at work very early the following day! Happy Halloween!

  1. My Little Pony from PUR is a super-cute collection. I heard someone complaining about the pigmentation of some of the shadows, but your swatches are gorgeous!

    1. Isn't it a cute collection?! I found the pigmentation to be generally good, but Magic, the purple shade) isn't very pigmented and it is a bit patchy. If you look at it in the pan you would think that it is a royal purple, but the swatch clearly shows that it ends up being a light shade. I find that it works well smudged over a black or dark purple eye liner pencil, but if you are hoping for it to look like the pan you will be disappointed.

  2. OMG isn't that palette just the cutest?! I used the pink glow stick on my daughter for cheer and it looks AWESOME in the sun when it hits her cheeks. It was gorgeous!

    1. Darling, isn't it?! The pink glow stick is AWESOME, and I can just imagine how awesome it looked on your daughter!

  3. This palette is so freaking gorgeous!

  4. The palette is so pretty. I didn't expect to like as many shades in it as I do.

    1. I agree, it was a pleasant surprise for me as well!

  5. the palette looks nice as well as the glitter gloss!

    1. Aren't they pretty?! They are a lot of fun to wear, too!

  6. The My Little Pony palette and glosses look so much fun! I love that the shades in the palette aren't overly bright/cutesy.

    1. They are a lot of fun, but it's definitely nice that there are a lot of infinitely wearable shades to use!

  7. Wow, that MLP palette is really pretty! My girls would go crazy for it. They love playing with my makeup. :)
