Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette

Hey everyone! As most of you know, Becca and Jaclyn Hill teamed up to release a whole range of products in the new Champagne Collection. The whole collection releases May 26 exclusively on the Sephora website, including this face palette and an eyeshadow palette, poured Shimmering Skin Perfector, and liquid Shimmering Skin Perfector.

Luckily, Sephora released a few face palettes on the site last week so I scooped it up to review!

The Champagne Collection Face Palette contains three blushes, Champagne Pop, and Prosecco Pop. Rose Spritz contains 0.1 oz of product, Amaretto and Pamplemousse contain 0.12 oz of product, and both highlighters contain 0.19 oz of product each. According to Temptalia’s calculations, that means this palette has a total value of $106.16, which is more than twice the retail price!

First impressions of the packaging: luxe, sturdy, and well-designed. This palette does not feel cheap at all. The palette snaps closed, which adds extra stability especially since the pans are so soft.

The blush pans are all a decent size and I was able to use my usual brush with ease. The highlighter pans are large and I was able to use my large fan brush without dipping into the other pans.

The blushes are so pigmented! I was extremely surprised that they were so vivid since Becca’s blush formula is supposed to be light, sheer coverage. Rose Spritz reminds me a lot of NARS Orgasm and gives that perfect glowy sheen. Amaretto is a warm, rosy brown. This color is really great for warming up the complexion to make my face look a little sunkissed, but this color could also probably double as a bronzer in a pinch! Pamplemousse is… wow. So pigmented. So bright. It looks borderline neon on me and makes me look a little sunburned, but I think the right person could wear this well.

I own the full-size Champagne Pop and while there’s no color difference between the two, but I noticed the formula in this palette is a little drier than the original. This doesn’t really affect the application, but there is a bit more powder kicked up with the brush. Prosecco Pop is a true gold highlighter. It is slightly dark for me, but if I mix a little Champagne Pop in when I apply it, it works just fine!

Overall, I think this palette is a great release by Becca. The color selection works for a wide variety of skintones, the quality is A1, and you definitely get your money’s worth. This product is limited edition, so be sure to buy it as soon as it’s released! ❤

Pat McGrath Skin Fetish 003 Review & Dupe Test!

Hey everyone! Today I’ve got a special (and slightly lengthy) post for you all. Pat McGrath’s new Skin Fetish 003 sets, like her previous releases, have been taking the makeup community by storm. The set contains a cream highlight and balm stick, a stippling brush, and a pressed pigment highlighter for $72 USD. The sets come in two different shades—Golden and Nude (shown below).

In this post, I’m going to be reviewing the Skin Fetish set and also reviewing two dupes—the Makeup Revolution Ultra Strobe Balm in Euphoria and NARS Cassiopeia.

IMG_0863

Pat McGrath Skin Fetish 003. First things first, the packaging for this is beautiful but not the most user-friendly. In order to keep everything contained (in case of a return) I had to store the bag and sequins inside of a Ziploc bag because they got everywhere if I didn’t. The packaging of the pressed pigment and balm/highlighter stick is functional but looks a little cheap for the high price tag. I noticed some air bubbles under the label on the stick and also under the label on the brush. The brush was nice, with soft bristles and a sturdy handle, but the fact that there was a sticker label on it made it look very cheap also. The packaging of the pressed pigment is sturdy but, like the other products, is very basic and looks cheap.

Now let’s talk performance. All 3 products from the Skin Fetish package performed nicely. The brush was soft and worked with both the cream and pressed pigment. The highlighter and balm were both creamy and applied evenly. The pressed pigment had a dry formula but was very pigmented and applied smoothly over bare skin and well over the cream products. I did have some issues with “stacking” the products on my skin, AKA using them the way they were intended to be. I have severely dry skin, so when I tried to apply the cream highlighter over my foundation, it did not cooperate with my skin. Applying the highlighter with the brush and a stippling motion helped, but when blending the pressed pigment over top of it, it caused my foundation to break up more. However, I’m inclined to believe this is due to the fact that I have severely dry skin, not because the formula is lacking. When I applied the pressed pigment just over foundation, I had no issues at all.

In short, the Pat McGrath Skin Fetish is a collection of well-formulated, nicely performing products. I think for $72, the packaging of the products has a lot of issues that could be improved, but the formulas themselves are awesome. I wish the products were sold separately because buying the pressed pigment separately would be perfect for me.

Makeup Revolution Ultra Strobe Balm in Euphoric. The Ultra Strobe Balm is a cream highlighter available at Ulta. The price is $9, much better than the Pat McGrath collection! The Strobe Balm is the closest color dupe I’ve found to the Skin Fetish pressed pigment.

However, the formula leaves a lot to be desired. It’s an extremely dry balm that bunches up when swatching on your fingers, but it applies decently over bare skin. I tried applying Kat Von D’s Thunderstruck eyeshadow on top also, but Thunderstruck proved much too warm to be a true dupe for the Skin Fetish highlight.

mur-thunderstruck

When I applied the MUR Ultra Strobe Balm over my foundation, it was extremely hard to work with. I tried to apply it straight from the pan with the Pat McGrath brush and it was hard to get even pigmentation as well as a sheen. After reading some tips on Reddit, I tried swirling a drop of water around the pan and applying it with my finger, but it caused my foundation to lift up and become patchy. As a Hail Mary, I wiped my cheek off, reapplied my base, then tried the Ultra Strobe Balm with a droplet of Drunk Elephant’s Virgin Marula Oil. It caused my foundation to break up extremely badly, so I gave up.

mur-balm-only

The Makeup Revolution Ultra Strobe Balm formula leaves a lot to be desired but like the Pat McGrath highlighter & balm, I can attribute part of my issues to my super dry skin. I feel like someone with normal or oily skin would not have nearly as many troubles applying this.

NARS Cassiopeia. Cassiopeia was my last attempt at finding a good dupe for the Pat McGrath pressed pigment! I searched the internet high and low and just decided to take a chance on this eyeshadow. At $29, it’s pricier than the Ultra Strobe Balm, but significantly more wallet-friendly than Skin Fetish.

It arrived in the mail today and I compared the two shortly after I got home from work. In swatches, the two look slightly different—Cassiopeia is a little more cool-toned. But I think the difference is minute when applied to the face. It takes a little more product for Cassiopeia to build up to the same intensity, but I’m very happy with how it looks and consider this the ultimate winner!

Kat Von D Shade & Light Eye Quads

Hey everyone! I hope you’re all having a good week so far!

A while back, Kat Von D launched a range of eyeshadow quads based off her widely successful Shade and Light palette. The quads came in four different color schemes and were priced at $26 USD each. They appear to be permanent installments to the KVD line. When they launched, I bought Rust and Sage.

The packaging of these palettes is really good. The outer case is made of sturdy plastic and the compact size makes them excellent for travel. The pans are large, with the Base color larger than the others. I think this is a smart move because that’s the color you’ll use more and will likely hit pan on before the rest, so giving you more of it increases the longevity of using the palette.

The formula of both quads is consistent. Both are very creamy and pigmented. The shadows swatch and apply easily. Of the two, my personal favorite is Rust, but that’s only because the colors suit my skintone better, not the actual quality of the product.

When I get products, I like to compare them to my collection to see what dupes I can find. The Viseart Neutral Matte palette contains some pretty close dupes of the shades in the Rust quad. The base color of the KVD quad is pinker and the brown and white are both a touch warmer, but when it’s actually on the lid, the difference is indiscernable.

Overall, the KVD quads are excellent quality products that are great for travel and perfect for adding a little spice to your collection! The colors of the quads are expertly curated and there is something to flatter every eye color in the line.

April Favorites!

Hello, everyone! Another month is in the books once again. I can’t believe it’s already May. 2016 is flying right by!

april favorites too faced drunk elephant anastasia beverly hills tom ford chanel mario badescue sleek makeup

This month I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to try several new makeup and skincare products. While most of them were awesome, these are the few that were at the top of my list.

  1. Tom Ford Bicoastal Sheer Cheek Duo. I purchased this on a whim from Nordstrom. I wanted to try the TF Soleil Contouring Compact, but since it was sold out, I decided to order this instead. I was really wowed by the quality when I received it! The colors are sheer, but I was impressed by the even pigmentation and how easily I could achieve the perfect springtime glow using these colors. The pans are narrow, but I’ve found that when using my MAC 135 brush, I can apply just one color with ease. Or both, if I would choose.
  2. Sleek Makeup Solstice Highlighting Palette. Like many people, I first heard of this product via Jaclyn Hill’s snapchat. Her highlight was so intense that I had to have this palette, especially after I saw the price! The palette is just under $15 for 4 highlighters—one cream and three powders. All four colors are very glowy and have an excellent formula. I love that the colors in this palette are all so different. It’s rare that you would get purple, yellow, AND gold highlighters all in one palette, but Sleek has done it. I received my palette in a little over a week, which I thought was relatively fast for international travel.
  3. Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum. Where to begin with this amazing product! I first saw Drunk Elephant in my local Sephora several months ago. I was attracted by the packaging, but the high price tag gave me pause. Over the past few months, I have seen a lot of beauty bloggers talking about DE’s skincare line and raving about the quality. After hearing KathleenLights’ review of the Glycolic Night Serum, I knew I had to try it. Having super dry skin, exfoliation is essential because flaky skin is just not cute. Exfoliation is also important in the fight against fine lines and wrinkles, something I already have to deal with. I got some samples of this product and was really wowed by it. I noticed immediate improvements in the texture of my skin and a reduction of hyperpigmentation which has plagued me all my life. Although other AHAs have caused excess dryness, this DE serum actually made my skin feel more hydrated! Let me be the first to say that a $90 serum is not a necessity. It’s clearly a luxury item. For me, however, it’s important to listen to my skin and buy what works for it due to the sensitivity I have to deal with. This product is 1 ounce, which is standard. I only use it twice a week, though, so I expect it to last quite a while.
  4. Mario Badescue Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs, and Rosewater. I have had this sample bottle for a while but started using it more recently to add some additional hydration to my skincare routine. The spray contains aloe and rosewater, both of which nourish skin and help calm irritation. I have noticed an improvement in my skin since I started using it. It also works as an excellent substitute for MAC Fix+ when setting makeup! As you can see, I’m almost out so I’ll be purchasing a full-size bottle soon, which is only $7. What an amazing deal!
  5. Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette. Everyone and their mother has been lusting after this palette since before it launched! I was fortunate enough to get my hands on it and have been in love ever since. The formula is great, the colors are amazing, and it smells amazing. This palette will be perfect for creating some warm looks for spring and summer. I hope Too Faced makes this palette permanent so everyone can get one! (P.S.: I included a Sweet Peach Palette in my latest Instagram giveaway. Go to my account to learn how to enter!)
  6. Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Crush. Crush is one of the new releases in the ABH liquid lipstick collection. I bought this a few weeks ago from my local Ulta when I was testing out the new shades. Crush is the perfect pinky nude lip for me. It applies smoothly and dries down to a transfer-free finish. I’ve dealt with some inconsistencies in the ABH formula in the past, but this one looks like a very solid product. I hope to buy more of the new colors soon!
  7. Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel Cream Bronzer. The Soleil Tan de Chanel bronzer is one of Chanel’s most popular products. I bought this recently because I was still on the hunt for the perfect bronzer, but I think my search has finally ended! At $50, this product is pricey. But since you get a full ounce of product, this makes it a better deal than the Too Faced bronzer I discussed in my February favorites post, which weighs in at 0.35 ounces. I used my Wet N Wild Large Stippling brush to apply Soleil Tan and it went on seamlessly. It is pigmented but easy to control and very buildable. It adds the perfect amount of warmth to my complexion, making this a new staple in my routine and another great product for spring and summer.

That concludes my list of favorites for April! What were yours? Let me know in the comments below ❤

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche lipsticks

Hi everyone! I hope you’re all having a good week so far. I was lucky enough to win one of the Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche lipsticks that Nylon Magazine was giving away! Before it arrived, though, I bought two more shades that I’d had my eye on.

bite beauty amuse bouche lipsticks

Look how cute the packaging is! I love the lip print on the outside sleeve. The Amuse Bouche formula is very creamy, pigmented, and easy to apply. These lipsticks were made to be a better version of the Luminous Creme line. The Amuse Bouche line is longer lasting, has a citrus scent, and a better color payoff.

I reviewed (top to bottom) Sweet Peach, Sake, and Black Truffle (Nylon prize). I was very impressed with the color payoff! I only needed a couple swipes to get an opaque swatch. They smell super good too!

I found all of these to have excellent weartime and held up well against food and drink. The color didn’t settle into lip lines and I needed minimal touch-ups.

Of the 3 shades I reviewed, my favorite was definitely Sweet Peach. It was ultra-flattering to my skintone, easy to work with, and perfect for spring! Sake was a decent MLBB shade but to be honest, I expected it to be more of a mauve-brown and less purple. Black Truffle is an absolutely beautiful shade. I love the color of it! It really speaks to my vampy soul. But I found that while it was extremely opaque and I had no problems with patchiness, it was extremely hard to get a crisp looking line. I would have to use it with a hella good lip liner and be VERY careful while wearing it, which is a little too high maintenance for me.

That being said, this is a really great formula overall and I want to try more shades from the Amuse Bouche collection! This is definitely Bite’s best work so far.

Have any of you tried the Amuse Bouche lipsticks? What do you think? ❤

Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip Set

Hey everyone! The Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip Set is a limited edition Sephora exclusive set that compiles five different nude lip products from different brands to give you all the options to create a perfect nude lip!

sephora favorites give me some nude lip set

The Give Me Some Nude Lip Set contains:

  • Mini-size Marc Jacobs Beauty Mini (P)Outliner Longwear Lip Pencil in Prim(Rose)
  • Full-size NARS Lipstick in Dolce Vita
  • Mini-size Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lipstick in Milky Way
  • Full-size NUDESTIX Lip + Cheek Crayon in Whisper
  • Mini-size Tarte Deluxe Tarteist Lip Paint in Namaste Nude

As you can see, the Give Me Some Nude Lip Set offers nude lip products in a variety of undertones and finishes. Since each product is so different, I’ll give each a brief review:

  • Marc Jacobs (P)Outliner in Prim(Rose): Undoubtedly my favorite piece in the set. The lip liner is very creamy, applied smoothly, and the shade was extremely flattering for my skintone. It’s actually very similar to my natural lip color, so it’s great for no-makeup-makeup or work-appropriate looks!
  • Tarte Tarteist Lip Paint in Namaste: Namaste is a warm nude liquid lipstick. The formula is light and mousse-y and applies evenly. The color is pretty flattering and doesn’t pull too orange, a common problem with warm nudes for me. The only drawback is that the formula does not really set, so this liquid lipstick is not transfer-free.
  • Nudestix Lip + Cheek Crayon in Whisper: Whisper is a midtone nude pencil. This is the first Nudestix product I’ve ever tried and I’m impressed with the formula. It’s very pigmented without being chalky or drying. The color is not particularly flattering on me, but I would definitely use this product in another color.
  • NARS Dolce Vita: This is a sheer, rosy nude lipstick. I own the Velvet Matte version of Dolce Vita and was surprised that the lipstick version was so sheer. The finish is slightly dewy when applied, but the formula is very comfortable and provides an even wash of color over the lips.
  • Laura Mercier Lipstick in Milky Way: Milky Way is a brown nude lipstick with a cream finish. It’s very pigmented but the formula felt very thick on my lips. The color was not flattering on me at all, unfortunately, because it washed me out really badly!

Overall, I think the Give Me Some Nude Lip Set is a great value for people who are looking to explore the nude lip trend to see what colors are right for them. I think it would be rare for all five products to work for a single person, so there would likely be some that go unused. For someone that dislikes clutter, that could be a dealbreaker. Since the only product I truly liked was the Marc Jacobs liner, I believe my money would be better spent on a full-size version of that rather than this set.

Makeup Revolution New-trals vs. Neutrals Palette

Hey everyone! I hope you’re all having a great weekend! The weather has been so beautiful here and I’ve really enjoyed spending time outdoors and with family.

I recently picked up the New-trals vs. Neutrals palette by Makeup Revolution when I was at Ulta. It’s a 16 shadow palette that costs only $10! That’s a crazy deal.

makeup revolution new-trals vs neutrals palette exterior

makeup revolution new-trals vs neutrals palette pans snapchat

The New-trals vs. Neutrals palette is a dupe for both the Lime Crime Venus I and Urban Decay’s Naked 3 palettes. The formula is very buttery, similar to Morphe and Lorac’s formulas. The palette has a decent mix of matte and shimmer shades to create a wealth of day or night eye looks.

Although the palette is separated into a different color scheme on each row, the colors work well together across the aisles. I found the pans swatched easily and were quite pigmented, the only exception being the brown shade at the end of the New-trals row. That shade was ultra dry and powdery. I had to really dig into the pan to get any on my finger, but most of it did not transfer in the swatch or with the brush.

Other than that anomaly, the shadows applied well and blended out nicely with both synthetic and real brushes. Some of the shadows needed a little Fix+ on the brush to make them pop, but that’s to be expected for some shadows and I can’t fault the palette for that.

makeup revolution new-trals vs neutrals palette swatches

While I think the original Venus and Naked 3 are higher quality than this palette, I can’t deny that New-trals vs. Neutrals is a better deal. This palette is a great choice if you’re on a budget and wanting to explore red/orange eyeshadows and would like to tie them in with traditional neutral shades. At $10 for 16 colors, you just can’t beat choosing this palette. It will allow you to try a fair amount of new colors without breaking the bank.

Colourpop Matte X Lipsticks!

Hey everyone! Colourpop has been working on the Matte X Lippie Stix formula for a while now. The Matte Xs are extra matte, containing light-diffusing powders to eliminate any shine in the finish. So far, two shades have been released: Trust Me…, a true red, and Poppin, a vibrant hot pink. Trust Me… was released around Valentine’s Day as a limited edition product, while Poppin was released as a freebie with orders of $10 or more in celebration of Colourpop reaching two million followers on Instagram.

colourpop matte x lippie stix swatches trust me poppin

Both shades have been in the traditional Lippie Stix packaging with a narrow, angle tip bullet. The formula of the Matte X shades remind me of the MAC Retro Matte lipsticks, but better. I have had Ruby Woo for years and I love it for it’s ultra matte appearance and long-wearing formula, but the formula is so dry that it drags hard on the lips when being applied. Both Matte X shades apply with ease. The size of the bullet makes it easy to get a precise line on the lips and in my experience, once the lipstick sets, it’s pretty much transfer-proof.

colourpop trust me matte x lippie stix

colourpop poppin matte x lippie stix

I wore Trust Me… out to a concert one evening over MAC Prep & Prime. I was out for several hours, had some drinks, and when I got home, it was still absolutely! I’m not kidding. I actually had to use a makeup wipe to remove it because it would not budge. I have not yet had the opportunity to try out Poppin in the same way, but given that the formula is identical, I’m expecting the same results.

Long story short, I’m in love with the Matte X formula! It’s exactly what I want in a matte bullet lipstick. I hope that Colourpop releases a whole line of these amazing lipsticks soon, because I’m obsessed and I need more!

The best primers for dry skin for all budgets!

best primers for dry skin nivea post shave balm nyx angel veil becca backlight priming filter YSL touche eclat blur primer

Hey everyone! I hope you all had fabulous weekends and enjoyed the first day of Spring.

Primers can make or break how your foundation looks. They can give you a matte or dewy finish, color correct, blur pores, give luminosity, and many other effects. I have compiled a list of my favorite primers at four different price points. Since I have dry skin, these primers are all hydrating to keep flaky patches at bay.

Drugstore:

  • Nivea Men Post Shave Balm (Sensitive)—$5. This product was first hailed by NikkieTutorials as a miracle product that both hydrates and keeps your makeup on all day. It smells like man (think Old Spice), but I personally love that scent. I’ve found that this greatly improves the lasting power of my makeup and gives my skin that little boost of hydration that it needs. I’ve also found that this is able to be used with other primers without issue. Plus, you get over 3 ounces of product for $5-6, depending on where you buy it. That’s a spectacular deal for even the most budget-conscious makeup addict!
  • NYX Angel Veil Skin Perfecting Primer—$16. This primer is a pretty spot-on dupe for the Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer. Angel Veil is a great product if you’re looking for a smoothing primer to cover texture or acne scarring, that also feels light on the skin.

Mid-range:

  • Becca Cosmetics Backlight Priming Filter—$38. This primer lives up to the name. It is an excellent primer that gives your skin luminosity and a nice, dewy finish, while also blurring pores and any imperfections. This primer is perfect for when your skin is tired and you want it to look healthy and awake. It also smells amazing, like coconut!

High-end:

  • YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer—$52. This primer is one of my favorites. It costs a pretty penny, but its effects make it so worth it. It’s a very silicone-y primer, which means it flawlessly blurs large pores, fills in fine lines, and minimizes the appearance of any texture on the skin. It isn’t necessarily hydrating, but it doesn’t dry out my skin. The high level of silicones in the formula acts as a barrier to lock moisture into my skin. It smells similar to Guerlain products, like violets. To me, the smell is very luxurious. I can use this primer alone or apply it on my T-zone and cheeks over the Nivea Men’s Post-Shave Balm and it’s the perfect combination!

Do you guys have any primer recommendations for me? I’m always looking for new stuff to try out! Let me know in the comments below ❤

Colourpop Ultra Satin lipsticks!

Hey everyone! I hope everyone’s had a relaxing weekend. Colourpop is back at it again with the Ultra Satin lipsticks. These are liquid lipsticks that don’t dry down to a matte finish, but rather set to a comfortable satin finish.

I picked up five different shades in the launch to test a good range of the shades: The Rabbit, Frick N Frack, Too Lips, Marshmallow, and Petit Four.

colourpop ultra satin liquid lipsticks

The Ultra Satin formula reminds me a lot of the Ofra Cosmetics liquid lipsticks. They are a thick, mousse-y consistency. But unlike the Ofra formula, which is stiff like icing, the Ultra Satin formula is a lot creamier. It spreads easily when applied and is very opaque.

It takes a couple minutes for the lipstick to set up. After that, it’s a little tacky, but it doesn’t feel slippery like a traditional lipstick would. It does transfer in a kiss test and wears away while eating similar to a traditional lipstick, so these don’t have the lasting power that other liquid lipsticks have. The Ultra Satin lipsticks can be layered for touch ups, which I am definitely a fan of because that’s the only thing I dislike about most matte liquid lipsticks.

colourpop ultra satin liquid lipsticks the rabbit

The Rabbit is definitely my favorite! It’s a beautiful hot pink color with blue reflects. The formula is a little thinner than the rest, but I found it to apply evenly, smoothly, and it sets up quickly.

frick n frack colourpop ultra satin liquid lipsticks

Frick N Frack is a rosy terracotta color that I think would be perfect for fall! This formula is thicker than that of The Rabbit, and the standard consistency for the other shades.

toolips colourpop ultra satin liquid lipsticks

Toolips is such a beautiful color! This deepened plum brown applies so smoothly and doesn’t magnify the appearance of lip lines.

marshmallow colourpop ultra satin liquid lipstick

Marshmallow is not a color I would usually wear, but this lavender grey is surprisingly wearable! It’s perfect for spring and applies very smoothly.

petit four colourpop ultra satin liquid lipstick

Petit Four is described as a deep charcoal grey, but it looks more like a slate blue when on my lips. This formula is a lot drier and stiffer than the rest. I had a few issues with pigmentation but they were mostly resolved with a second layer.

All in all, I love these Ultra Satin lipsticks! I actually ordered one of the nude shades, Magic Wand, a few hours ago so I can try it out too. Nothing can ever replace my matte liquid lipsticks, but these are a great alternative if my lips are super dry or if I’m just going out for a couple hours.

Have you tried the Ultra Satin lipsticks? What do you think of them? ❤
