I have heard soooo many Gurus talk about the L.A. Colors Palates but had never been able to find any until this past weekend. A friend and I were in a new store and when I spotted these I know everyone around thought I had lost my mind. I bought one of each that I liked for myself and went home to try them. They really are fabulous! I immediately went back to the store and bought more to give away to you guys! I am also including 2 samples of Beauty From The Earth which is an AMAZING mineral makeup company.

The palates in order are:

I am not sure how many of you out there have ever heard of Beauty from the Earth but if you have not OMG, CHECK IT OUT. Stop what you are doing, check out there site NOW! They are a fantastic mineral makeup company and mark my words, WILL make it to the top *BIG* time. Everyone will know who they are. I have been trying to convert all of my friends and family to using BFTE and what better way to do that than with swatches and looks to go with them. Sound fun? Stick around for the fun to begin!

Their customer service is out of this world. I always receive my order very quickly and they even include a sample every time. How awesome is that for customer service? I have saved these samples and I have been giving them out to people who ask me where I get my makeup from. Needless to say, the ladies at Ulta love when I come in!

Check them out at

Also, check them out on Facebook. They offer a Color of the Week (COTW) every week and *we* as customers to get pick what it will be! They offer the COTW for only $2 and it is a full size jar retailing normally for $6.50. Its a steal. I hope to see you there!


I am a mom of two monkeys! They are the light of my life but all of us moms need another outlet that is not!
