Pioneer Park Christmas Lights

Every year Pioneer Park puts up numerous Christmas lights around the park.  They are always gorgeous and I never get tired of looking at them.  I took a few pictures that I'd like to share with you.  These pictures don't do the lights justice, and I didn't take too many photos, I was too busy looking at the beautiful buildings!  Enjoy and Happy New Year!

These are new Northern Lights bulbs, very cool!
This church is so elegant and gorgeous!

One of my favorites. Probably because there are so many lights-ha!

Concealer from Ebay

Today I have a new to me concealer palette that I purchased from Ebay.  Originally I thought they sent the wrong product when this showed up:
Naked 3??
Last time I checked, Urban Decay Naked3 looks nothing like what's inside the box!  I had to giggle at the packaging.  But, what's inside is what really counts.  Here are some more pictures of the palette:

I paid under $6 for this, so I didn't have the highest hopes.  I first tried these concealers with my finger.  These are pretty creamy, so I made sure to set with a powder.  It seemed to be cakey at first.  Then, I applied these with a synthetic brush, and that's where the magic happened (I used the brush from the UD Naked 2 palette).  I have only tried three of these colors (the lightest and the green).  I used the green on a very red mark on my hand then added concealer on top and it covered all of the redness! Here are some swatches.  Swatching concealer is very difficult! 

I am looking forward to continuing using this palette and I recommend it!  Have you ever used a palette like this one?
