Tonight during a Twitch stream, I turned myself into a cracked stone statue using body paint and some eyeshadow. This look was roughly inspired by @kristinefargerik and @artyfaceart, and the only thing edited in the photos is my eye color. We got a little carried away during stream with stone/cracked puns, which I thought was hilarious. Usually I have a long list of products that I used when creating looks but I only used a few products. Those being: Madeyewlook body paint in Yeti and Ink, ColourPop Smoke Show palette, and NYX liquid liners.
Are the Milk Makeup Best Sellers (Kush Mascara, Matcha Toner, Watermelon Brightening Serum, Blur Stick, and Cooling Water) Worth the Hype?
During the holiday seasons, I saw on Sephora (yes, I know not Ulta. I rarely venture to the other store) that Milk Makeup was doing a set of their best sellers that includes mini versions some of their face products and the kush mascara. Now I was too late to get the bundle so instead as a little Christmas present for myself I purchased the mini versions of Kush Mascara, Matcha Toner, Watermelon Brightening Serum, Blur Stick, and Cooling Water. The only thing from that bundle I didn’t get was the mini holographic highlighter as I have tried it and knew I wouldn’t reach for it. I have heard great things and influencers praising each of these products so I wanted to find out myself if they each were worth the hype.
Instead of reviews as I’ve done a lot of reviews lately and want to “Unleash My Inner Artist” I’m going to do seven creative looks using the Morphe x James Charles Artistry Palette. Prior to doing these seven looks, I had not touched my palette yet as I was holding off to do a review. But considering I’ve done so many reviews lately and still have several more palettes to go through I need to mix things up or I’m going to lose it.
Next palette in my line up for review from Juvia’s Place is The Festival palette, which has 9 shadows with large pans and costs $20 in total like most of their palettes. The tones are all supposed to be festival party inspired so they are daring and bold. I seriously love the range in the bold shades as you can make a large variety of looks. And yes, this palette isn’t for the faint of heart. And like other Juvia’s Place palettes they are made of sturdy cardboard and do not include a mirror.
This collaboration palette recently returned on ColourPop’s website, and the first time around I did not manage to get it before it was discontinued. But this time around, I was not going to miss out since at this point I’m just attempting to collect all of the ColourPop eyeshadow palettes… well at least all of the 12-pan palettes. And I love the packaging of this one since it’s covered in pink and red roses with rose gold lettering. The color story of the shadows also matches as it has mauve and berry tones. To give you those romantic shades to transition from sweet damsel to femme fatale according to ColourPop.
ColourPop recently came out with a brand new formula of eyeshadow, which has a jelly formula something that is very popular for brands to release this year. Though most of the other brands that have a jelly formula are for highlighters so it’s a bit innovative for an eyeshadow. And initially came out with eight shades in total, I am glad that there is a bit of variety in the range unlike the Supernova Shadows which is very heavy on just the bronze, copper, and gold tones.
