Pur Love Your Selfie 2 Swatches + Review

Pur Love Your Selfie 2 Palette
The sequel to the Love Your Selfie Palette/Kit, Pur recently released the Pur Love Your Selfie 2. "A travel ready palette with everything you need for the perfect close-up". Retailing for $42 at Ulta and valued at $140! It comes complete with 8 eyeshadows, 3 face powders, a mascara, a lipgloss and lip pencil.

I hadn't tried these first version of this palette but I am so glad I got my hands on this one. It's very rare I try an "all in one" palette and love it! Generally something is off, face products are too pale, lip products built in (I hate that) or it is just too bulky. The packaging is so pretty, although it may get dirty when travelling. The white and silver is so clean and chic. The palette also has a nice size mirror, if you are on the go a good mirror/lighting combo is tricky.

I'm really glad the lip products are not in pans in the palette, that is a huge pet peeve of mine. Not only does it make it hard to keep the powders and cream separate but then unless the palette is in your purse you cannot touch up! I'm not sure if the lip products are full size but they are far more than any deluxe size sample, and who ever finishes a lip product anyways?! The Pur Lipgloss in Silhouette is beautiful, I love a nudey-rose lip and this is just that. It also had great lasting power without being sticky. The Pur Lip Pencil in Focal Point is a slightly deeper rose with some more brown in it. A very comfortable matte formula, that wore well throughout the day.

You also get a mini of the Pur Fully Charged Mascara. I really enjoy this a lot. Gives tons of volume and length without all the clumps.

The eyeshadows are what excite me the most. The texture and pigmentation are fantastic, but it is the colour selection that makes me swoon! It is different than your typical selection of neutrals, but it is still wearable with the ability to do something very mild and neutral or you can really amp it up. Megapixel and Paparazzi are my favourite, I have really been getting into olive greens lately, so glad it's been included in this palette.

Also included in the palette are 3 face powders. I am so incredibly happy that there isn't a pale pink blush in here. So many face palettes are ruined for me with that option, it just does nothing on my NC42/43 skin. Overexposed baking powder is a great option to set the undereye. I haven't tried baking with it, but it is a very smooth powder. Could be great to set your eye primer too if you have very oily lids like myself. Photogenic Blush, which is actually described as a "Rose Gold Illuminator". This is a really nice highlight that I think will work for a lot of skintones. It isn't a 'highlight that is brighter than your future', but it has great impact and can be built up if you want more glow. Lastly is Composition Blush which is described as a neutral bronzer. I personally think it leans more warm, but all I am happy about is that it works on my skin tone. Don't forget, you can use this on your eyes as a transition shade too!

The look I created makes use of many of the shadows, with the bronzer in the crease, along with all 3 face powders and the lip gloss.

Overall, I think this palette is so functional and versatile without being bland! I cannot wait to play with this some more. I think this would be a great option for a gift too, or a gift to yourself ;) .
