Are you surprised that I couldn’t resist an all-matte single shadow collection? Somehow I’m not ghghg. When Nabla announced that they were coming out with a new collection of eyeshadow refills and they were all matte, I got butterflies in my stomach and giggled in a silly way. I am an eyeshadow refill collector and matte eyeshadows are my passion since I have hooded eyes. So of course I snagged up the full Nabla Matte Collection off of nablacosmetics.com and here are my review and swatches.
Well by now we all know that I didn’t resist and bought the Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Vault collection at launch. Of course I had to compare the dupes I found when trying to convince myself I didn’t need the palettes, with the actual palettes. So here are my Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Vault dupes in retrospect.
Ah, new palette releases are the toughest times for me (my wallet actually). When Norvina announced the launch of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina palette, my heart skipped a beat, my palms got sweaty, all the symptoms. I own all the current permanent palettes by Anastasia Beverly Hills: Modern Renaissance, Subculture, Prism, Soft Glam, so naturally I wanted to pick up the Norvina palette to complete my collection. Then I went to instagram stories to ask you guys, and my brilliant friend CynthiaIsKillikill took the ham off my eyes (it’s an Italian saying, everything looks better through prosciutto). So I dove into my eyeshadow collection looking for shades that would be Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina palette dupes and went off to wear purple eyeshadow for a few days. It was a process, it was a revelation, read on for what came out.
We’re here for another palette review and dupes. After the ABH Subculture palette, it is time for my Jeffree Star Androgyny palette dupes and review. I tried to resist for a long time because I do not like the guy, the ridiculous amount of designer stuff he buys every day and especially his past. Nevertheless, I was won over by the perfect selection of shades in this palette. That is, until I used it.
The Colourpop Yes Please palette is the first pre-made palette Colourpop came out with and it was an absolute success. It sold out within 15 minutes both at launch and the following restocks and for good reason. The color choice, formula and compact packaging definitely make it on trend, affordable and a must have.
The Morphe x Jaclyn Hill has been one of the most anticipated releases of this summer and I was online on the hour purchasing it because it just spoke to me. As I mentioned in my video, I am not a big Morphe fan, but I find Jaclyn Hill’s taste in shadows very close to mine. However, i do understand not everyone can or wants to purchase from Morphe. So here are my Morphe x Jaclyn Hill palette dupes and review for you guys. Also remember: restock is July 18th at 8 am PST.
Just a few days ago the beauty community got taken aback by the surprise sneak peek of the new Urban Decay Naked Heat palette, the fifth in the Naked palette family, characterized by gorgeous and very trendy warm toned shades. I was totally prey of this surprise sneak peek and the moment I saw the promotional image, I wanted it right away. Warm colors are my jam, just take a look at my Instagram feed. Reviews and swatches started coming out by bloggers and youtubers I trust and I started being less enthusiastic about this new Naked Heat palette, so here is a product-specific antihaul, as well my Urban Decay Naked Heat dupes.
It all started when the Kat von D Alchemist palette was released in December and the whole discussion that followed of it being small and not that different from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Moonchild palette. In makeup groups on Facebook I read how for $1.50 you can get the starting products to make the exact same highlighter shades by buying micas at TKB Trading. Obviously I made a substantial order and set myself to make my own Kat von D Alchemist dupe highlighters.
