Hi Dolls!
So as I've might of mentioned before, I am building my Makeup Kit Little by Little for Freelancing.
You guys might of already seen my Traincase review if not you can follow the link below.

So little by little I will be showing you how I am building my Kit.
If you have any suggestions, please feel free to comment.
I love to hear what you guys think.
I also wanted to mention that before I actually buy something I actually go and check out reviews, some of your blogs and even You Tube.
Based on those reviews I decide wether to give it a try or not.
So to all of those who take their time to actually review a product in any possible way, I just wanted to say
Thank You very Much! those reviews have been very helpful to me and I'm sure to many others as well.
So here is one of my reviews and I hope it helps some of you the way other reviews have helped me.
I purchased this Palette on Camera Ready Cosmetics
Graftobian 12-Color Dual Finish Foundation Powder Palette
12 Dual Finish Graftobian Color Dual Finish Powders into one palette.
This palette has the lightest color to the darkest color and 10 colors in between.
This covers everyone.
Great for both men and women.
Use alone or over foundation.
 It evens skin tone with just a dusting of powder.
A slim light weight durable easy open/close palette.
Refills of individual rounds are available.
The palette is magnetic with holes at the bottom for easy removal and additions,
and the palette is very easy to wipe clean.
Colors included
Porcelain Doll, Soft Ivory, Butter Cream, Honey Glow, Golden Tan, Cleopatra,
 Cafe Au Lait, Hot Chocolate, Cocoa, Silk Beige, Honey Dew, Satin Sand
Price $117.00 plus tax

Pigmentation is good
Texture is silky and buttery like the Mac Studio Fix.
Coverage is good if you are setting with this powder, alone its not that great in coverage.
I haven't used it wet so I can't comment on that function.
I also like that it did not feel cakey.
Lasting Power, I used it over my cream foundation and it lasted a good amount of time without touching up.
The Size if the product I have to say I was a bit surprised since I thought they would be a bit bigger.
These are the size of the blushes on on the 10 palette.
Which its not a big deal for me.
Packaging,  a black long sleek palette very professional looking.
The powders can be refilled as they sell them separately.
Overall I think this is a good palette to have on your kit.
It has a great range of colors for almost all skin tones.
This palette is also great for contouring and highlighting,
an all in 1 palette for professional or personal use.  


I printed this label off Camera Ready Cosmetics Website and taped it to my palette to
know the colors on the palette since the colors are only shown on the botton of the actual powder.
I liked Camera Ready Cosmetics Service I ordered my palette on Nov 25, 2011
and received it on Nov 30, 2011 pretty fast I think.
I already have other palettes on my wishlist from this site.

Here is a picture wearing Buttercream from this palette on top of my
Artistry Essentials Concealer in Medium.
I also contoured with the color Cocoa from this palette.
I got a lot of great comments of how my face looked so flawless that I just wanted to share it with you guys. I am loving this powder and will buy the full size for myself.
For Reference I am an NC37 in Mac and the Color Buttercream in Graftobian Dual Finish Foundation Powder matched well on me.

I really hope this review was helpful!


  1. I too am building my Kit.Camera Ready is the BEST by far. They have awesome customer service and all the best products.I purchased three Lip Tars by Make up Forever. Pageant is my favorite color.Lip Tar is unlike any other lip product you have ever used.A little goes a LONG way and it's meant to be mixed with other colors to create your own custom colors.There are a lot of tutorials on UTube for lip Tar.I got the tip from one to custom mix your lip tar custom colors in small amounts and store in any small containers.I like a small pill box I got at the Vitamin Shoppe,it is sturdy and my custom colors can be easily applied with a lip brush. I will def add this foundation Palette to my next order. I like how you labeled yours! CeCe

  2. Hi Cece!
    Thanks for following and for the helpful tip on the lip tars. I do need a lipstick palette. I will definetly look into this soon. Any other tips you may have, please pass them on.
    Again Thanks!

  3. I heard great things about this particular brand , but it is a bit to over priced for me.:)
