  1. Liz Yu! I so wish I could meet her and see her line of products personally… but since I know i’m getting the Pearl Paint palette already… I guess I can save the $85 admission fee… How’s the blushes? Are they good?

  2. The colours are gorgeous and I liked that everything is in one palette for easy access and it certainly saves room in my makeup box. Being Canadian I always love hearing and learning about Canadian brands. I haven’t heard about Yaby yet. Thanks for introducing us to this line Phyllis!
