Revealed 2 Palette Review

It’s Palette Play! Make sure you are subscribing to get your palette and makeup reviews every week!

Today we will be talking about a cult classic, Revealed 2 by Coastal Scents. This is a very economical palette if you are looking for a lot of good quality colors for cheap. I have all 3 palettes in my collection and it is definitely worth it!

Check out the video of a look I created with this palette!

The swatches below will give you an up close look at the product!

Revealed 2 Palette Top Left _ Zainey Laney

The first 5 shadows on the top are the lightest. The first couple are beautiful and blend nicely. You can tell the 4th one is a little powdery but it is a beautiful color. There are so many great bases and highlighters here!

Revealed 2 Palette Top Right _ Zainey Laney

These are some more neutral tones. The last one on the right is gorgeous and I love using that on my lid over a darker color. I am telling you, it will change your life!

Revealed 2 Palette Bottom Left _ Zainey Laney

These are some of my most favorite in the palette and can be used for a dozen different combinations. They are the creamiest and look the best on everyone.

Lastly, these colors can be used to make an amazing smokey eye or as a shadow liner. The last one is probably the hardest to build up in the whole palette but it blends and mixes so amazing with the lighter colors that I don’t care about that.

Overall this palette is one of my favorites and I reach for it again and again. Do yourself a favor and splurge.

Until Next time,

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

It’s Travel Thursday with some more Epic Travel.

Marshall recently had the opportunity to go to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party with Chris. Here is his take on one of the most popular halloween events in Orlando.

Mickeys Not So Scary with Chris and Marshall _ Zainey Laney

 

I recently had an opportunity, alongside MovieGuy84, to check out Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Disney’s Magic Kingdom. This is not the first time I had been to the Party, but it was the first time I had been there on an invite. Okay, technically as a +1 on an invite. Thank you, MovieGuy. If you want me to sum up the rest of what I’m going to say, you should definitely go, and a lot an entire evening for it up tomidnight. You’ll be tired the next morning, but it’ll be good fun.
Mickeys Not SO Scary Castle _ Zainey Laney
Each year, they kick off the night with a show. In previous years, most were disappointed with the production and direction of the shows. I’m pleased to say that Disney has addressed that. This year features the Sanderson Sisters of Hocus Pocus fame, their long-overdue-induction into the society of Disney Villians, and a lot of elbow rubbing with other villainous headliners. The sorcerous sisters have come back from their slumber and are attempting to brew their Hocus Pocus Party Potion. They need several ingredients that are all supplied by various ne’er-do-wells including Dr. Fusilier, Oogy Boogy, and Maleficent. It’s all very campy, and yes, that’s the point. Personally, I felt that Oogy Boogy’s part was a bit weak as far as story line, but this is about fun, not high literature. The Sanderson Sisters were perfectly decked out. They looked exactly like their movie counterparts, and moved and sang just right. Disney really did them justice here, and the show really made the night for me.

After that, the Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hallow fame came riding through to kick off the Boo-To-You parade. If you haven’t seen this before, it takes various attractions from around the Magic Kingdom on parade, blending their theme songs with the parade music in an earworm that will please and annoy you for two and a half days after. A fun highlight is the zombie undertaker dancers for the Haunted Mansion. As they dance, they drag their shovels on the ground, throwing up a shower of sparks. So fun. If I’m not mistaken, they’ve added Wreck-It Ralph characters near the end of the parade, close to the Goofy Float. I liked Vanellope running around and saying hi to everyone.

Now, you can’t have a fun Halloween without Trick-Or-Treating, and Disney supplies. Many of the attractions are shut down and become candy zones where you can load up. Interestingly, Pirates of the Carribean was also shut down. Possibly because George doesn’t want to work nights. My recommendation is to wait until during or after the night’s fireworks display to do your candy runs, as the lines will be shorter. We managed to hit all the stations, see the show, parade, and fireworks, and ride three rides all during the event without breaking a sweat. While you’re about, you should check out the Haunted Mansion, as all the staff have revealed their undead selves (via great makeup jobs) in the moonlight, and one of the ghostly ladies will be out for a meet-and-greet. Great photo ops are to be had all over the park, as just about every character is hanging out to meet you. Now, I mentioned the fireworks display. Really, I wasn’t much of a fan of it. Having seen it before, and having so much of it de-synced was a bit of a turn off. I hope they’ll update this in future years.

All in all, this was a great event, and I hope to go again one year. If you have the opportunity, kids or no, you should definitely go. It isn’t a scary Halloween. It’s a fun, exuberant romp through all the festivities you remember from your childhood. And your inner child will thank you.

Paramount Fine Foods Review (Orlando)

It’s Travel Thursday!

Recently, me and the side geeks had the opportunity to experience a new kind of food genre: Lebanese. It is similar to Greek or Mediterranean food, but has it’s own distinct dishes which define it.

Paramount Fine Foods is located at the Orlando Eye complex on I-drive across from the Shack Shake. (If you missed my review on that you can find it HERE). Parking is directly adjacent in the parking garage and is free.

Seating is cozy as you can see above. And to provide more of a family atmosphere, there is even an indoor playground!

Ordering is a little different, as you approach the counter and pay. Then the server will bring it to your table. The dishes are large and suitable for sharing. Also, check out the delicious looking desserts!

 

Paramount Fine Food Dishes _ Zainey Laney

Here is a selection of popular dishes from the restaurant. My personal favorite is the hummus which is served with made from scratch pita bread which is served table side piping hot!

A sampling of Hummus and Moutabbal, which is grilled eggplant and tahini.

Don’t mind the facial expressions. We are thoroughly enjoying it! Another favorite of everyone is the falafel, fried fresh and topped with sesame seeds. I highly recommend this with the tahini sauce. I could not get enough by itself, and cannot wait to go back and try in a sandwich.

For our evening, we were able to sample a few other items from their menu as well. Here is a view of Marshall’s plate filled with falafel, basmatic rice, chicken, and the tahini sauce. Drinks were also a variety of fruit juices. The one below is strawberry.

One of the most interesting things we tried was the Manakeesh which is like a Mediterranean pizza. Honestly, it is one of the best things I have eaten in a long time and is very reasonably priced!

Paramount Fine Food Manakeesh _ Zainey Laney

We were able to try 3 different Manakeesh. The Zataar is a paste (similar to pesto) of sesame and thyme blended with olive oil. It was very refreshing. The other 2 are made with an Accawi cheese. Let me tell you, the white one is divine. I do not know how that cheese is made, but it has so much flavor!

Overall, we are really excited to go back and try this again. The sandwiches, pizzas, and salads are reasonably priced, and on Saturdays they have brunch that is around $15 per person.

While you are there, make sure to check out the Orlando Eye pavilion! This is a must have spot for any vacation, and it won’t break the bank either.

Thanks for joining us on this new adventure, and until next time…

Zozae 8 Piece Brush Set Review


Zozae Brush Set _ Zainey Laney

I had heard a lot about these brushes from other youtubers but had never tried them before. What I love about this set is that you can use the entire set to create your makeup look and it is not lacking in brushes unless you need something more specialized. But the brush set is great and has a lot of variety.

Zozae Brush Set _ Zainey Laney

 

 

It comes in a very soft leather container with a leather flap to keep it clean. I really appreciate the quality of the brushes overall. The handle is sturdy, nice to hold, and has a good quality to them. So far they do not shed at all.
This set contains 8 brushes in all.

 

Let’s review the specific brushes:
Powder Brush- This brush is soft with a medium density. Perfect for putting on powder.
Angled Blush/ Contour Brush- I like that this brush is also medium density because that means it is small enough to contour your cheeks but fluffy enough to put on blush.
Foundation Brush- I don’t really use a flat brush to put on foundation but if you do this is a good alternative. The brush is domed and good for applications.
Angled Eye Liner Brush- Slightly slanted and very dense, this brush is perfect for putting on gel or cream eyeliner.
Lip Brush- I don’t use a brush for the lips, but this brush is really a multitasker. Because of it’s pointy bristles, you can use this to put on eyeliner or a little shadow in your lower lash line.
Tapered Blending Brush- This is dense domed brush that does the job of blending the shadows for the most part. It felt to me like it did not blend as well as my other brushes, but it did do it.
Eye Shadow Shader Brush- This is probably my favorite brush in the bunch, because not only can you use it on your lid but also in your crease. It blends beautifully, and better than the blending brush in my opinion. I wish they had included a crease brush like this.
Flat Concealer Brush- I am blessed to not have to use much concealer so I don’t use this brush for it’s intended purposes. Instead I use it as a lid brush. It does an amazing job at packing on the shadow and is extremely dense.

I would have preferred they include a a flat top kabuki brush and a smaller crease blush to blend, but these brushes are multi-taskers so I am not complaining!

 

If you want to see a look I did with these brushes, here is Makeup and a Movie: Mission Impossible Rogue Nation

Specifically this set costs $40 on Amazon with Prime. That comes to  about $2 a brush which is a great value!
