since I could not find a great excuse why this purchase, I'll just go straight to it....

here are the palettes I bought from eBay just recently....

Pro 88 Matte Color Eyeshadow Palette

this is my Pro 88 Ultra Shimmer Eyeshadow Palette, which I've had since I started getting addicted to makeup, before I even started blogging.... so I guess I've had this for about two years now?? yikes!! I wonder when this thing expires?!?!
this was purchased from Coastal Scents by the way....

comparing the two different palettes:
it's funny how I got the Shimmer palette in a matte casing & the Matte palette in a glossy casing.... it's all backwards.... talk about getting me confused on picking up which palette...

swatched a few colors....

Pro 6 Color Contour & Blush Palette

I got these two palettes from eBay... 
Pro 6 Color Contour & Blush Palette ~ $15.99 free shipping
Pro 88 Matte Color Eyeshadow Palette ~ $1 + $8.95 s&h = $9.95

at Coastal Scents....
Ultra Shimmer 88 E/S Palette ~ $19.95 + s&h
88 Piece Makeup Palette $18.95 + s&h 
Contour & Blush Palette $18.95 + s&h

prices are all the same at the Sedona Lace website except for the Contour & Blush Palette which is priced at $17.95 + s&h

so I saved a whole grip! just gotta love eBay for great deals as such!!

awww... my Pro Palette family
(ugh!!!! darn pic does not want to rotate!! LOL)

I can't wait to put these babies to use....


  1. the palettes are so pretty! I just stumbled on your blog through Makeupby ren ren. You're doing a fab job! :)

  2. OMG!! I also bought the contour palletes I got 2 the #1 like yours and the #2 I cant wait to get them. Is it very pigmented? Do you think is sensitive as some of the shadows fall appart easily? Can you tell me what seller you got your shimmer pallete from? If thats ok with you. Enjoy your palletes! :)

  3. @ lauraluvsMAC - no problem at all doll!! actually, I got the 88 Ultra Shimmer palette from Coastal Scents.. but if you want, the name of the seller I got the Matte palette from is bbcbuycom.. here is the direct link to their items for sale - .. they still have a few palettes on sale right now... they even have the 120 palette for $4.75 + $8.75 s&h which I wish I bought instead.. but it's ok.. I love the 88 palette!

  4. such nice palettes and for good deals too!

  5. I have the coastal scents 88 metal mania palette and i am waiting for my 88 warm palette in the mail, I was thinkin bout getting this contour palette, but got the 10 blush palette instead. I think i am def gonna go buy the matte palette though after seeing your swatches.. thanks so much!!
