That I’m a single eyeshadow collector doesn’t come to a surprise with all the recent posts on swatches and comparisons (here and here). So when an indie brand that sells single eyeshadow pans got onto my radar, it was just a matter of time before I placed an order. I found out about Devinah Cosmetics at the end of last year thanks to the lovely girls of Beguiles and Dolls on Instagram, and purchased my first highlighters from them during the Black Friday sale (here). I was trying to be strong and not buy any more eyeshadows, but I finally caved during a recent restock and here are some Devinah Cosmetics eyeshadow swatches.
Single pan pressed eyeshadows are my weakness, I collect them, I love them. Now that I’ve said that, you won’t be surprised that I’m coming to you with a review and swatches of the new Colourpop pressed shadows. Colourpop launched over 30 new pressed eyeshadows in January promoting it as their biggest launch yet. I picked up quite a few in the meantime and have been using them non stop, so here I thought it was about time to talk to you about them.
Here we go with part 2 of the swatches of the Makeup Geek lip products I own. In part one (here) we looked at the Iconic lipsticks, and today I am showing you one of their two liquid lipstick formulas. So let’s take a look at the Makeup Geek Plush Creme swatches.
Welcome back to the blog! I am running behind on my accompanying blog posts for the videos that are going up twice a week on my Youtube channel, but here is the first of a trio. In my latest video I swatched and reviewed all 15 lipsticks that Makeup Geek so kindly sent me but since there are three different types of lipsticks, I will be going through them in three different posts. Today we are taking a look at some Makeup Geek Iconic Lipstick swatches.
After months of resistance convincing myself that I didn’t need it, I caved and bought the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette with the sale at Ulta. I have used it for a bit now and though I am blown away by the quality of it, I decided to go through my Makeup Geek eyeshadow collection (read more here) because I had a feeling I already owned similar shades. So here is my review of the palette and some Makeup Geek Modern Renaissance dupes.
We all know by now that I have a soft spot for metallic liquid lipsticks, so I couldn’t let the new Sugarpill Pumpkin Spice liquid lip color pass by me by. This is a limited edition shade released for the holidays 2016 in combination with its pressed eyeshadow counterpart. Sugarpill released the Pumpkin Spice eyeshadow shade last year in a limited batch and it had such a great success that they repeated it this year adding the liquid lipsticks as well.
I haven’t been this excited by a makeup collection in a while. The new Nabla Goldust collection has made my heart beat a bit faster since the press release at the end of November. A collection inspired by the Golden Age, or Belle Epoque, those years of art, music and parties just before the First World War. Think of Paris at night, reflections of gold and copper, flowing chiffon dresses and the art of Klimt. Well all of this excites me a lot when combined with new formulations of eyeshadows and a new finish for lipsticks. After stalking this collection on the blogosphere thanks to the work of colleague bloggers (Marta from Caffelatte for Breakfast, Elsa from Like a Candyshop, Stefania from Nude Powder, Chia of La Vie en Cosmetique, just to name a few), I decided to pick up a selection of products that I knew I would get a lot of use from and would give me an idea of the novelties introduced with the Nabla Goldust collection.
After spending some time playing with the products and off the record, I think I can safely report here my opinions and experiences on the Nabla Goldust collection.
After the great success of the Autumn Glow bundle, Makeup Geek released a new discounted eyeshadow bundle for the holiday season 2016. The Makeup Geek Holiday Bundle is a great selection of 9 shades, 6 matte and 3 foiled, perfect for the holiday season. In this video I swatch the shades, give you my opinion and show you two easy makeup looks you can do with these Makeup Geek eyeshadows.
Last week I presented the new Makeup Geek eyeshadow releases in this overview post here, and showing you all the foiled shadows swatches and comparisons here. Now it’s time to look at the new Makeup Geek Signature eyeshadows for Fall 2016. There are a total of 9 new eyeshadows of which 7 are matte and 2 are shimmery. All nine new eyeshadows are neutral colors ranging from cool, to warm tones, to orange. I swatched the new shades next to other similar shadows in my collection both from Makeup Geek and other brands. I apologize for the goosebumps in the photos, Fall is here, and I hadn’t turned on the heating yet, brr.
I recently gave you a first look into the new Makeup Geek eyeshadows that launched for Fall 2016 in this post here. Since there are a total of 18 new shades, I decided to show you the comparisons in two separate posts. Let’s start with the new Makeup Geek foiled eyeshadows.
Rather than a specific Fall-themed collection, this is an expansion of the current foiled eyeshadow line. All the new Makeup Geek foiled eyeshadow shades are unique and different from anything existent from the brand. Nevertheless, I think a comparison of each shade with similar ones in my collection could help you get an idea whether you need them or not. A small sad note is that my collection is quite a bit smaller after moving overseas, but I hope you get a good idea of the shades.
