You guys, I have a ridiculous amount of eye shadow palettes. Like, the drawer I'm storing my favorites in keeps getting stuck shut because one of them gets wedged up and blocks it from opening. You'd think me having to force open a drawer four times or so a week would convince me to store some of them elsewhere, but I just can't bring myself to do it. What if I want to use one in the morning and it's downstairs? That would just be tragic. So instead, I rearrange them constantly, hoping that'll prevent the blockage, and hold my breath every time I go to open the drawer. It's kind of sad. But the real point is, I have a lot of eye shadow, so when I see a palette that makes look twice, it's kind of exciting. Which is how I feel about Smashbox's new Love Me Eye Shadow Palettes. How adorable is the one above, with its Love Me message? So cute! (And for those of you wondering, the overlay with the words lifts up and out of the way so you can use the shadows easily - you don't have to try and work around it, which is much better than I originally thought). The Admire Me palette above is a great neutral palette and since it's not big, it's a lot easier to pack for a trip than a lot of my other favorite (but bulkier) nude palettes. The other palette in the collection, Entice Me, is more colorful, with a mix of pinks, purples and blues, so they're both equally useful, but for different looks. I'm kind of obsessed with them right now. How can anyone not adore a palette with the word "Love" IN IT? Someone with a heart of stone, that's who!
