Review: Vanity Planet Contour Pallet + Brushes

Wowowow. Hey blogo-o-verse. It’s been a minute, eh? Crazy how easily designing packaging for bottles and nipples and pacifiers can consume your life. I am VERY behind on reviews – so so sorry to the brands I’ve been neglecting! (And food recipes I’ve neglected to share out! And lack of general life updates.) Sheesh.

Waaay back when, I was lucky enough to be selected by Vanity Planet to try out a few of their products, and while I totally failed to write about them in a timely manner, I’ve been using them every day! (Seriously!) Absolutely no part of me is makeup-inclined, so when I decided to choose the contour pallet and makeup brush set, I knew I was in for a challenge – or at least something that would have a bit of a learning curve.

Vanity Planet is a boutique marketplace, focused on beauty, grooming, and wellness. They source, curate, and design products that benefit their customers’ daily lives. And holy moley – fast-forward a couple of months, and while I am still all about keeping my makeup v. natural, I actually kind of know what I’m doing now! I don’t need the cheat sheet included in the pallet to give myself a slightly contoured face anymore! (That cheat sheet though – it was a god-send. It’s like VP knew who they were sending the product to.) I’ve been able to incorporate the pallet into my daily routine without much adjustment on my (admittedly makeup-challenged) part.

I absolutely love the brushes – they’re so much softer than the randos I had previously – and the fact that I have a full matching set helps me feel like I have my life together a bit more than I probably do. AND I have separate brushes for my blush and bronzer now. IIIIII know. Moving up in the world over here. Is this an appropriate place to use #adulting? I think so.

Just lookit that contour.

VP was generous enough to share a discount code for any readers that also want to upgrade their makeup brush collection and/or feel like they have their lives together a bit more. Use code BBPalette70 at checkout for 70% (yes, SEVENTY) – thanks so much, Vanity Planet!

Heyyy, it’s a giveaway!

I recently received Goodness Knows Snack Squares AND OB Tampons to test/review for free from Smiley360, and what better way to share some freebies than with a giveaway!? Free tampons and BOGO snack bars might not be the most exciting first giveaway, but hey, gotta start somewhere, right?

After the boxes were delivered, I dug right into one of the bars (Very Cranberry) and devoured it so quickly – it was delicious, and at least slightly more healthy than the Halloween candy I’ve already started snacking on. Our poor trick or treaters will probably only get to choose from tropical or original Starbursts by October 31st.

The tampons on the other hand – I just can’t wrap my head around the idea of a tampon without an applicator. I have a box in the closet for emergencies, but the samples will be heading to a friend or two that will actually put them to proper use! A lot of people I know love OB, and I can appreciate that they’re small and easier to transport to and from the restroom, but I just can’t get on board (except for that one time I ran out of tampons in Cape Town right before 22 hours on a plane, and accidentally bought the applicator-free variety from the store, and got me through the flight without any mishaps.)

Anyway – on to the giveaway! It’s open to US readers only (so sorry) and each winner (there will be 2) will get one coupon for a free box of OB tampons (up to $8.99) and two BOGO coupons for the Goodness Knows snack squares, which can be found at Walgreens, CVS, and Rite Aid.

To enter: Just post a comment on this post with any product you’ve come across lately that you’ve loved! For an extra entry, follow my blog and let me know you followed in another comment.

The giveaway will end at 11:59pm ET, October 20th.

This giveaway is now closed. Sorry! Hopefully there will be another in the near future 🙂

Congratulations to the winners: Amanda, and Tari L. 

Hopefully my next giveaway will be a bit more exciting, but in the meantime, good luck:)
