Do you know the feeling when there is that one shade you think makes a palette totally worth it? Do you know that voice in your head saying “it’s only 20€, get it!”. Well that’s how I ended up buying the Zoeva Café palette: low price tag and a lime green shade. So since I bought it and used it, how about writing a review and showing you some swatches. I thought it was the perfect content to go up on the blog, separately from Youtube, so let’s get into the Zoeva Cafe palette review and swatches.
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.
A lot of drama has been going around the beauty scene and it is all about the new Anastasia Beverly Hill Subculture palette launch. This is definitely a polarizing palette with people loving it and others hating it to extremes. This brought on ridiculous reviews like “the worst palette evah”or “wtf this sucks”, which in my opinion are all just riding on a few bad first impressions by the first people trying it, and nobody actually tried to find out how this palette works best. That is how I approached this palette, tip toeing around it and getting to know it before feeling completely comfortable with it. So now that I’ve had it for two weeks, this is my Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture palette review.
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.
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.
Here we are for Part 2 of my 2016 makeup favorites. In Part 1 I told you all about my favorite products for the base and the face so now let’s take a look to eyes and lips. As I mentioned before, on the Youtube channel I split my favorites between Italian and other makeup, but on the blog I divided it by product type. So lets take a look at my favorite eye and lip makeup.
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.
Then you find yourself sitting at your vanity at the beginning of December scavenging for favorites in you makeup stash, bad blogger! Anyway, welcome to my November Beauty Favorites!
