Doucce Cosmetics Freematic Face Palette in Smokey or Nude - Value $70
This palette is available in two different shades and includes a highlighter and 8 eyeshadows.
These palettes are magnetic so you can swap out any of the pans:
This palette includes 5 shimmer eyeshadows, 3 mattes, and a highlighter. Here they are swatched:
(Highlighter on top.)
And here is the other color option:
Both palettes have the same champagne-colored highlighter.
This set has four shimmers (the top row), and four mattes.
Here is everything swatched (highlighter on the top):
The pigment is good throughout on both these eyeshadows, they were easy to blend, and I had minimal fallout!
Here it is in hand to give you a better sense of scale:
BB Dakota Poncho - $70 Value
This poncho is open in the front and available in three different colors.
Here are the care instructions: Machine wash cold, no tumble dry, ironing OK on delicate setting, dry cleaning OK.
(The fabric is 65% acrylic, 35% polyester.)
It features a blanket stitch edge and just like a blanket, it's super soft and cozy!
Here are the other colorways:
I chose to pair this drape-y poncho in the burgundy, navy, and grey color palette with an otherwise all black look. Being at the end of my pregnancy, black has been my best friend. I love that this poncho's hues are subtle, and it adds just enough of a fall feel to my basic tank and black jeans. It's also super soft and cozy (a definite plus, but I did notice some stray fuzz). This is the kind of versatile layered look that I can see myself wearing all fall in different variations -- switch out the tank for a staple white tee or opt for distressed denim instead.
I believe ponchos are one of the most versatile pieces for fall and winter—the styling possibilities are endless. I'm a lso a big fan of blending base tones, so I layered this shades-of-grey poncho over a heather grey tee , my go-to brown belt and booties, and some pop-of-color jeans. Different tints and textures break up the monotone look so that my mostly-grey outfit is casual and suitable for everyday wear.

Here's a better idea of the size of the poncho:
(And you can see the little tag on the reverse side.) For reference, I'm 5'7".
And it works as a super cozy scarf, too!
