If you’ve read my Versus post comparing Urban Decay All Nighter and Deslick, you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of Deslick. I’ve tried a lot of setting sprays over the years, but none have really stood up to Deslick. A place I really haven’t searched for setting sprays is the drugstore.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Wet n Wild Rose in the Air

A palette that has taken the makeup world by absolute storm is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette. When I first got it, I was a bit hesitant, but after owning it for awhile now, I’m SO glad I made the purchase. It’s one of my most used palettes!
