I was so excited when I heard that this palette was gonna be a thing. I mean, a brand that I appreciate and Chrissy Teigen team up to create a palette? Yeah, I’m there. Also, if you’re not following her on Twitter or Snapchat or Instagram, then I don’t know what to tell you about your life, cause she is hilarious!

I heard about the palette about two weeks before it dropped, and I was able to get it from Sephora a few days before it officially launched as an app exclusive offering.

Instead, I’ll give you the high end brands and the drugstore formulas that in my opinion correspond and add links to the reviews. Once again, my opinion, you may not agree. I’m not sure if I’ll be splitting them up into powders and liquids or what, that all depends on how long this particular post gets, we’ll see at the end. I was going to do blushes as well, but realised that for the most part, I don’t really purchase a lot of high end blushes cause I just love blush so I acquire them wherever I can. But we’re also gonna see how that turns out.
