My Crazy Life (ft. Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Palette)*

kat von d mi vida loca remix palette swatch review

My life, is crazy.

When I think about all the events that lead up to today, I know that there were pivotal events. A few years ago, running a blog was the furthest thing from my mind. Blogs didn't even exist in my frame of reference of feasible activities. A few years ago, the opportunity to partner with brands and to test out products would have sounded unreal, and yet that's what I do, for fun, multiple times a week. The course of my life has been unexpected and my life is crazy.

A few things that have changed my life:
- as a studious introvert, deciding to run for club exec positions during university
- applying for a Masters out of province
- deciding to get active and take care of my health and body
- starting the blog

On a regular day, if I'm not working, I'm trying to fit in a work out, a blog post, a meal with friends, heck, a meal with my partner, and maybe some time to breathe and relax. The grab bag of activities that make up my day, make my life unique. It also make my life sort of crazy.

Granted, my life and the majority of other human's, isn't as atypical as Kat von D's but we all have our own doses of crazy, our own varieties of success and our own types of surprises. Her colorful life is reflected in the Mi Vida Loca Remix Palette* ($71CDN) which holds 24 shadows in a literal rainbow of colors.

There so much potential with this palette. It holds all the shades you wish you could play with but might not be comfortable having a lot of. The top portion of swatches were done over primer and it resulted in much more pigmented payoff. Still though, not all shades applied evenly but broadly the shadows were quite nice once used over primer.

In this look, I used the 2nd look option provided with the palette. Muse was applied over the brow bown, Swoon was placed over the crease and Echo was used to darken the outer corner. Echo applied kind of patchy which was a bit disappointing.

The Mi Vida Loca Remix Palette* ($71CDN) made me think of the things I've done (though they may feel insignificant to others) that have surprised me. Sometimes, I'm in wonderment over how everything has culminated in this exact second of my life. 

Do you ever feel that way?
