The entire Ben Nye Lumiere Grande Eyeshadow Collection

For those who aren’t aware, I love Ben Nye makeup. I bough the Lumiere Grand palette a few years back and it’s been my crack ever since. Ben Nye is one of the few makeup companies where I actually set out to collect each color in an entire collection – and I succeeded!
