After the whole Morphe changing the original palette of Jaclyn Hill formula, I thought I would compare all three collections to each other. More so than I did in the post discussing this change as I think it’s interesting. I will not be including the original formula in this post as that is no longer in production. And I mainly wanted to go over this as in Jaclyn Hill’s commercial for the palette she describes her newest palette (Volume 2) as having the same formula of the original palette. So, I wanted to see if the new “original” formula is the same as the volume 2 palette, or if it’s closer to the vault collection which was hit or miss for a good portion of people. My vault collection wasn’t that bad, and I do reach for those from time to time, but I know others found issues with it.
At the beginning of 2020, Jeffree Star announced that the Alien Palette, which has been out of stock for some time will no longer be coming back. Since this is one of my favorite palettes even though I broke it when I took it out of the original packaging, I was debating on getting a second which now will no longer be happening. So, I thought I would bring back this series and see if I can come up with some dupes for my favorite shades in that palette.
This is a concept I got from Cleia, which I’ve had in my “‘post ideas” list forever but never ended up doing. And recently I’ve been using Dominique Cosmetics Latte Palette for my everyday makeup. So, I thought it was finally time to compare this palette with the Kathleen Lights x ColourPop Dream St. Palette.
I like to try out different foundations then get into moods where I wear one for several weeks before switching to another one. So it takes me quite a while to get through a single bottle of foundation. To a point where I start to forget how they stack up next to each other, so I thought I would do a massive comparison of all the ones that I keep in my collection. I’m going to do a similar ranking as I did in my Juvia’s Place palette comparisons where I’m going use a few different categories to determine which foundation is truly the best. The categories will be the following: wear time, finish, price, shade range, coverage, amount and applicator.
Something I love to do when I’m doing my eyeshadow on a glam day, even if I don’t take photos in general or for Instagram, is to add one of the ColourPop Supernova Shadows for a bit of a highlight or glitter moment. Almost all of the ones in my collection are no longer available on ColourPop’s website anymore. I’m not sure if their just stopping production on their liquid shadows in general or just keeping the ones that sell the most. But I love using these. Though I never wear them alone. Typically I’ll put a metallic shadow over top so it really pops and stays all day long. As long as you don’t touch it or rub your eyes they last all day long looking the same as you first applied them. Each one typically costs $7.50 for 4.7g (0.17oz) of product.
Alright last one in my comparison of The Mortal Instruments Series to Freeform’s Shadowhunters. I’m going to miss the show as I seriously enjoyed, granted the third season was wildly different from the last three books in the series as they were all covered. After I compare what can be compared between the books and show I’m going to give my general overall opinion on both.
