Zoeva Cafe palette review and swatches

zoeva cafe palette review swatches

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.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina palette dupes

ABH-NORVINA-PALETTE-DUPES-VIDEO

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.

Jeffree Star Androgyny palette dupes and review

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.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette Review

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.

Devinah Cosmetics eyeshadow haul and swatches

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.
