so I decided to FINALLY swatch the Dream Girl and Free Spirit palettes. I  have literally had these two for so long and I never touched them. It has seriously been so long that I don’t think Free Spirit is even being sold anymore, at least not on Lorac’s site.

Dream Girl

(side note: if anyone is interested let me know in the comments and I will hold a little giveaway for these two palettes if there are enough people down; because I seriously don’t use them and they will have only been swatched.)

 

so aside from me not ever using

Free Spirit

them, they are actually really pretty palettes. plus they’re Lorac, so the quality and pigment are seriously amazeballs. I think it is because they are smaller, that my larger palettes got more attention and they got lost in the shuffle of it all.

 

Dream Girl is such a fun little palette and I love all the shimmer shades, especially the blue and copper ones. Definitely a fun night out palette. Free Spirit on the other hand, is a really nice natural/neutral palette for just an everyday type of thing. It has some really nice shades as well. I felt that some of the shades were harder to swatch because I am so pale, so sorry if you can’t see the full pigment D:

What are some of your favourite Lorac palettes? Mine is hands down the Unzipped palette! *insert heart eyes*

Also if you’re interested in doing a giveaway for these two let me know below, if there is more than 5 of you guys, I will definitely do it. Also should there be two winners or one winner gets both? Let me know!

Carli Bybel – yay or nay?

Hello beauties!openface

I hope you all had a good holiday and had fun with your families. Sorry this post was so late. I was out of state for the holiday and didn’t have a chance to update before I left. Now before I jump into this post, I did want to let you all know that we are about 13 followers away from the 1,000 mark! 13! So make sure you tell your friends and share the blog on Twitter/IG/FB. Once we hit that, the giveaway instructions will go up. The giveaway prize is a $120 dollar value, and soon you will know what it is (also there may be upcoming hints on my IG) 😛

eyeshadowNow, for what you came for.

So, this is actually my first BHcosmetics purchase. I have seen/heard mixed reviews so it took me a while to try anything from the brand. So when I was walking around Ulta a few weeks ago, I saw the Carli Bybel palette, and it was getting a lot of hype. I figured for less than $15 it was worth a try. It totally was. I am a highlighter fiend and was looking for new shadows and thought it was a perfect combo.

Seriously, this is the best palette you can get for under $20. Everything is so smooth and buttery, kind of like the ABH palettes. They are also a lot more pigmented than you would think they would be for the price. Also ignore my swatching, I tried doing a straight line and it just did not work out for me, lol. img_1463

The highlighters vary in shades, which is great because there is a highlight for a lot of skin tones, however, because of that and because I am so pale, I can only really use two. BUT I’m not gonna complain too much because it is still such a great palette.

Both the highlighters and eyeshadows blend very well and stay well through out the day. Definitely a 10/10 for me and I totally recommend it.

Does anyone have any favourite BHcosmetics products they love? What else should I try?
