My Beauty Favorites Week of July 20-July 26, 2015

This week has been crazy!  Both my husband and my eldest daughter had their birthdays, so I have been very busy. Plus, it’s been extremely hot!  It’s nice to have a beauty break!

This week, I am loving a beautiful blush palette,  super-cute beauty bags, yummy-scented bath products and a pro hair straightener.

Mehron CHEEK Cream & CHEEK Powder 8-Color Palette ($40 USD) — Two beauty industry innovators, Mehron and The Makeup Show (TMS) have teamed up to celebrate TMS’s 10 year anniversary this Spring. To commemorate the show’s decade long commitment to Pro artistry, education and community, Mehron is launching a new, Limited Edition CHEEK Cream/Powder Palette. The stunning shade selection, brimming with bold, wearable seasonal shades, is a collaboration of color picks from The Makeup Show’s Director of Artistry, James Vincent, and Mehron’s Marketing Director, Stephanie Koutikas. The compact features both powder and cream formulations to provide endless possibilities for on-trend color and contouring with Mehron’s signature colors and lasting wear. The palette’s ergonomic, earth-friendly packaging makes it easy to transport and features:

What I think: This is a gorgeous palette!  It is so versatile — there are colors for all seasons and all looks.  Dab on a little cream or powder or layer the textures and shades for a bold look!  There is a lot of product in the palette, so it will last!
