Review and Swatches: Viseart Minxette Etendu Palette

 

Review and Swatches: Viseart Minxette Etendu Palette

Viseart Cosmetics has really caught my attention this year and their palettes have really become staples in my everyday collection. This Minxette Etendu is a beautiful bronze warm palette. If you like a one-and-done palette that has all the shades you need to create a look, you will love this palette. It has a cream matte, a shimmery inner corner and it has a deep brown to darken up the outer corner. This would also make a great travel palette since you won’t need to grab a different palette to complete the look. I also have the Natasha Denona Bronze palette and I like them both. The Minxette still stands on its own and I like the range of shades. When I use the bronze palette, I have to pull in a different palette to complete a look. The Minxette has a lot of depth to the shadows and the mattes blend beautifully. 

Indigenous Nation to Nation Cooperation (Gespeg-Kanesatake Vaccination Campaign)

Inter-nation Gespeg Kanesatake Vaccination


This past weekend, my husband and I were able to be vaccinated in the Kanesatake community through an inter-nation vaccination campaign. My nation is Gespeg, a small nation in GaspĂ©, Quebec that has no land base and half of our members reside in Montreal. Urban Natives are often left without the knowledge of resources available to us. My band stepped up and reached out to our members early on and those who wished to be vaccinated were placed on a list and we were guided through the process of having our vaccination booked. This Nation to Nation cooperation with Kanesatake proves that given the proper resources and the proper funding Nations can work together and support each other. Historically, First Nations have suffered greatly during pandemics and I’m happy to see the Federal and Provincial governments provided the proper funding, resources and understanding during Covid-19. We need to protect our elders, and protect ourselves.
