Destination Sydney!

Hi Beauties!
 Here is my review of Destination Sydney, look out for Destination Santorini within the next few days.

I always love the Destinations collections. They always involve some pretty wicked shades and never disappoint. Destination Key West was by far my favorite until "hopefully" Destinations Puerto Rico which I have been hoping for since the first Destination kit.A girl can dream right?? I'd also love to see a Destinations Ireland!
 OK Back to Sydney! The colors are beautiful and I have never seen such a vivid deep blue, Bondi Beach,  in mineral makeup. Treasure Island was previously release in the Castaway kit which was an ULTA exclusive. So if you missed that you can get a second chance here. Its khaki green with golden shimmer. Sydney is a buttercup yellow sheen. Sort of reminds me of Soul. Plus the bag is so darn cute! Its the same color as Bondi Beach with a yellow flower outlined in white. Yeah that bag will travel everywhere this summer!
 I would love for BE to release these as singles because I would love to get a back up of Bondi Beach. And I must say out of the 3 Destination kits available now, this one is my fave!
 Below is some photos of the kit & of me wearing it. To copy this look is really simple. I first used Prime Time Eyelid Primer, with a Soft Focus Shadow Brush I applied Bondi Beach on the outer 1/3 from lash to crease. I then applied Sydney with a Contour Shadow Brush on the inner corner, inner 1/3 of lid & up towards my brow bone for a sheer wash of color. Then I used Full Tapered Shadow brush to dab  Treasure Island on to my entire lid & crease & over the Bondi Beach I had applied earlier. I then mixed Bondi Beach with a little Weather Everything & lined my upper & lower lash line with a Soft Focus Liner brush.

You can purchase Destination Sydney at BE's online store for $32. 

Peace & Sparkles,


  1. LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Jessica, this is just beautiful!! I tried Bondi Beach on my lid and did not like the results, but because of your application & tips I am going to try again!!

  2. I think I must get this now after seeing how beautifully you applied it. Thanks so much.

  3. LOVE THIS!!! Seeing your review pushed me over the edge(well that and one of the 20% off coupons that came with my House Party packs) and I just ordered this kit(along with Dest. Santorini and Sweet Smile)!! Can't wait for it to arrive!!!

  4. Fabulous tutorial Jessica, awesome as usual :) I'm going to have to get ahold of this one, too...
