PB&H


still no wifi and I hate posting from my phone, I don’t know how you guys deal with me, lol. still in the moving process but I have left you guys hanging long enough!

so I have no idea how the photos are going to line up so enjoy anyway!

I finally got my hands on the Peanut Butter and Honey palette from Too Faced and I am in love. I wasn’t a big fan of the PB&J palette, simply because I wasn’t big on the colours. purple is not my colour.

I love the PBH though, because if you haven’t already noticed I love the orange/red shades because it makes my eyes look more noticeable. This is my second favourite mini palette from TF along with the Sugar Pop palette. Which I don’t think I’ve even swatched for you guys yet!

I also REALLY like the yellow shade, which was surprising because I thought it would look horrible, but it actually goes really well with the other shades.


I will say the three light shades are hard to see on me, in terms of swatching, but they make really nice transition colours. also I will probably update this post tomorrow with swatches on a darker skin tone so you can really get a feel for the shades! so come back tomorrow and check that out!

anyway, ciao for now xox

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?

holy swatches, batman!

 

img_0339Sorry sorry sorry for being so late.

I recently just started up my courses for my bachelors degree so I have been running around like a lunatic doing this and that. If you have been on my Instagram, I have posted a couple of mini-posts there for you guys.

So as promised, I have brought you swatches from Cargo’s ‘Chill in the Six’ palette that I posted about not too long ago on Instagram.

Also, disclosure, I did receive the product for the purpose of review, but am not sponsored or receiving compensation.

Now, as many of you know I am a HUGE fan of warm colours, and reds and oranges are my favourite. BUT BUT BUT, these colours are SO amazing. This may be one of the very few cool-tone palettes that I really enjoy. You can also make so many amazing smoky eye looks. I especially love making a smoky eye with ‘Hockey’ and using ‘Blizzard’ on the eye lid. *drool*

I think this palette is super cute in it’s overall look. ‘Chill in the Six’ was made to pay its dues to where Cargo Cosmetics started, in Toronto. So all of the names of the shadows are very Canadian, and I think it is adorable! These colours are great for fall/winter.

I also thought it was fun how the colours are broken into quads. So you can use them however, or use within the colour scheme of a quad!

What are your favourite Cargo products? Or what Cargo products have you been wanting to try out?

Updates: Don’t forget to share the blog around so we can get to 1,000 followers and have the next giveaway! I am super excited. The last giveaway went so well so I am looking forward to this.

Also, I finally made a Facebook page for the blog if you would like to check that out and share/like it! I will post the at the bottom with all other social media links!

Also I do have Snapchat as well @shawnadawnx

Ciao for now! xx

Mini Colourpop Haul (+swatches)

colourpop

SWATCH TIME!

ultramattelipWait, I got ahead of myself, first thing first; hi. I feel like I have been posting about palettes too much, so I bought some lippies into the mix!

If you don’t already know, I am a huge Colourpop fan. The lipsticks and highlighters are my absolute favourites things from Colourpop. ALSO; if you plan on making any purchases, I suggest you get them in today before the free domestic shipping ends.

With the change of seasons, Colourpop has released some new fall shades, that are just amazing. My favourite fall colour so far is ‘Times Square’. If I had to pick a colour to represent fall, that would be it. My second favourite is ‘Trap’. These lippes are pigmented and apply with no patches.

I do have more lippies that I forgot to dig out, but decided to just do some swatches with my recent ones.

Now I do know that a lot of people hate that these lippies are drying and to be honest, I agree. They can be drying, but that goes for any matte lippie. So be sure to moisturize before application. Just like you moisturize your face before make up application, you should do the same before you apply a lipstick.highlighter

Lippies aside, some pretty amazing highlighters come from Colourpop. At the moment, I only have a couple of highlighters, and ‘Stole the Show’ is my favourite. These highlighters are super pigmented and very smooth. They also blend well.

What are some of your favourite fall make up products? Favourite Colourpop products?

S/N: I finally made the Facebook page (link below) for the blog, so feel free to hop over and give it a “like” and some shares! Remember, once we get to 1,000 followers on the blog we will have a giveaway! Also give me some of your giveaway ideas.

Lorac Unzipped

Aloha lovelies! IMG_7372 (1)

I want to start off with saying thank you guys for your participation in the giveaway, it is going so well. Don’t forget that it does last until the end of the month, so let your friends know so they can get entered for a chance to win.

So recently I bought the Lorac Unzipped palette. After struggling with the decision of whether I would rather have that or the Gold palette. Let me start by saying this palette is amazing. I really like the shades and the pigment is one of the best I have seen. Especially for the shimmer shades. It has quickly become my go-to day to day palette because I love how it really brings out my eye colour.

IMG_7362 (1).JPGTo be honest, I haven’t really done any extravagant looks with it, I just really like the basic looks I can create from it. This palette also blends a lot better than some others. If you haven’t already, I would definitely recommend adding it to your collection.
