Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my Amazon Holiday Gift Guide for 2021. Between the ease of online shopping and some people still staying away from crowds because of Covid, I know many people are choosing to do a majority of their shopping online again this year. Amazon is the one stop shop for everyone on your list! They make shopping super easy and their returns as so simple too! These gift guides take a TON of work so I hope that they are helpful to you! I wanted to cover more bases this year on the gift categories but also narrow down the amount of gifts suggested. Below I have created different collages to highlight some items from each guide. I have linked all of the gifts pictured in these collages plus a few more more under "Shop This Gift Guide". If you prefer you can head to my shoppable LikeToKnow.It page HERE where I have also linked all of these collages and items. If you want even more ideas you can check out my Amazon Gift Guide 2020 from last year HERE. Keep reading to check out my gift guides below!

Review: Dominique Cosmetics Transition Palette

Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on the Dominique Cosmetics Transition Palette. I picked it up during one of the BoxyCharm Pop Up Sales. I think that I only have one palettes that is all matte and its only 4 shades. I have hit pan in two of shades and have wanted to purchase this palette for a while. I am someone that ALWAYS hits pan in the lighter matte base and transition shades in a palette. During the weekday I tend to reach for 3 shadows. A matte skin tone or bone color (base shade), a matte light brown transition shade, and a shimmer shade for the lid. I often reach for my ColourPop Super Shock Shadows for lid shades and then use my other palettes for the matte shades. I have hit pan on so many lighter shades and am wearing down on many of my warm brown shades so I felt like this would be a palette that I would reach for a ton on a daily basis. Keep reading to hear more about this palette!

Here is what is said about this palette on the Dominique Cosmetics site:
"Life is complicated, but makeup doesn’t have to be thanks to Dominique Cosmetics Transition Palette. Keep things simple with this versatile, multi-use palette. Define, contour, brighten, and highlight with a range of warm to cool neutral shades with a matte finish. Play up your eyes. Enhance your brows. Choose daytime no-makeup makeup looks or go sultry, smoky glam—these blendable, longwearing pigments can do it all."

On to my thoughts:
I do like that this is a multi-use palette. The fact that you can use it as shadow, blush, contour, and brow powder makes it very versatile. I most likely will only use it as shadow but its a great palette to travel with or for someone that doesn't have a ton of different beauty products. The shadows are very pigmented and blend very nicely. I have been reaching for it a ton. I really have nothing negative to say with my experience so far. My only wish is that there was one more matte brown shade that was on the warmer side. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase and highly recommend it!

Below are the blushes that I have been reaching for the most lately. I will link all of the blushes on their names as well as at the bottom of the post.
