Is it Worth the Hype? NABLA Cosmetics Poison Garden and Secret Palette Review

Is it Worth the Hype? NABLA Cosmetics Poison Garden and Secret Palette Review

NABLA a few months ago came to Ulta, meaning the brand's products are more accessible now in the United States. I had heard good things about the brand but never tried their products since it required international shipping. Initially when the brand launched in Ulta, they sold out on both the Poison Garden and Secret palettes almost immediately. So, I didn't manage to get these until it was restocked. That time I decided not to skip out as the palettes look gorgeous and something I can totally see myself vibing with on a regular basis.…

Does it Actually Keep it 100? Review of the Jeffree Star Artistry Palette by Morphe

Does it Actually Keep it 100? Review of the Jeffree Star Artistry Palette by Morphe

I have most of Jeffree Star Cosmetics eyeshadow palettes, not all of them but a good majority. I love the formula of those palettes and often reach for them (especially the Alien palette). So I was a little shocked that he released a palette with Morphe. Considering he has his own brand with his own eyeshadow formula. And yes, it's spend-y but it's usually worth that price tag. Morphe on the other hand has come out with some good palettes, but a lot of them are the same repeat shadows. At first I was going to skip on this palette, but my sister surprised me and it for me since she knows I enjoy a Jeffree Star palette.…

3 Looks 1 Palette – Kaleidos Makeup Futurism IV: VR Neon Palette

3 Looks 1 Palette – Kaleidos Makeup Futurism IV: VR Neon Palette

I have been in such a colorful makeup mood lately, I have barely touched my neutral palettes since I think winter. And that's not stopping anytime soon. Instead of doing individual reviews for each of the Kaleidos Makeup summer limited edition palettes, I thought I would do a "3 Looks 1 Palette" on each of them. So to start with we have the Futurism IV: VR Neon palette. …

Anastasia Beverly Hills: Palette Comparison & Ranking

Anastasia Beverly Hills: Palette Comparison & Ranking

I have the entire Anastasia Beverly Hills palette collection or at least of the main 14-pan palettes that typically come in the velvet packaging. So not including the Master palette by Mario, or any other limited edition palette they came out with. I just got into them within the last six months, I don't know if I'm honestly going to be getting every single palette from them that they come out with. But I'm living for the formula so I just might since I really enjoy collecting makeup. Some people collect shoes, cars, handbags, or trading cards, I used to collect Pokemon cards but now I collect makeup. Mainly liquid lipsticks and eyeshadow palettes. All the rest I don't.…

3 Looks 1 Palette: Jackie Aina x Anastasia Beverly Hills Palette

3 Looks 1 Palette: Jackie Aina x Anastasia Beverly Hills Palette

Honestly, I wasn't going to get this limited edition palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills as from the looks of it it's a mixture of several palettes: Alyssa Edwards, Modern Renaissance, and Norvina. But since I got my sister the Riviera palette, she repaid me (her words, not mine) by getting me the Jackie Aina palette. But since I have the palette, I thought I would start out with doing a 3 looks 1 palette, and then update my rankings of the ABH palettes with my review once I've gotten more use out of this palette.…

Review & Swatches of the ColourPop 9-Pan Shadow Palettes (Part 1)

Review & Swatches of the ColourPop 9-Pan Shadow Palettes (Part 1)

One brand I love mainly has they have excellent products on a drugstore budget is ColourPop, granted they release a lot of products. While I do not have everything they have ever released nor will ever have everything, the mass majority of my makeup is from ColourPop. And I haven't done a few of their eyeshadow palettes in quite some time. Practically on their 9-pan palettes that are almost all monochromatic. So I thought I would share my thoughts and a brief overview of each of those palettes since I have them all.…

Kaleidos Makeup Futurism I-III Palettes Review

Kaleidos Makeup Futurism I-III Palettes Review

Something I want to do is try more indie, cruelty free brands. One that I've been extremely curious about is Kaleidos makeup. At the time I ordered these palettes there were only three palettes out, though now they have released another two that look really interesting plus aren't something in my collection. I might get them but I will be waiting a month or two beforehand since I need to stick to a budget. So, I'm going to be reviewing the original three: Cyber Bronze, Sci-Fi Green, and Astro-Pink.…
