In honor of the new Alice Through the Looking Glass movie being released today (cue the fangirling) I will be reviewing and swatching the new palette from Urban Decay. Spoiler alert: I am OBSESSED. This is what it looks like:
Can we just take a minute and appreciate this packaging?
Then when you open it:
Wait for it…..
HOW STINKIN CUTE.
Now that I’m done geeking out over the packaging, about the actual makeup inside…..
It comes with 20 different shades and a double sided brush. The shades have various finishes, and are the typical high quality you would expect from Urban Decay.
The idea of this palette is that each column represents a different character in the movie. I will search them by column!
Column 1: Alice
Column 2: The Mad Hatter
Column 3: Mirana
Column 4: Iracebeth
Column 5: Time
As you can plainly see, beautiful palette. You could really do so many different looks with this! As a huge Alice fan and a makeup lover, I have to give it two thumbs up!
Have you tried this palette yet? What are your thoughts?! 🙂
ELF is one of my favorite brands! It is so affordable and super great quality for the price. Recently, I picked up 3 of ELF’s $6 palettes: the bronzer palette, the contour palette and the illuminating palette.
From left to right: bronzer palette, contour palette and illuminating palette.
Let’s start with the bronzer palette. I love how blendable these are. I also love how you are able to blend shades together to get a better fit.
Same deal with the contour palette. I love it. Mainly to travel with so I only need 1 product for my contour. Plus, like the bronzer palette, it’s super easy to blend.
Now, the illuminating palette. I will say I do not hate it. It is a decent product. However, it kicks up hella powder, does not blend all that easily and I feel like it sits on top of the skin instead of seamlessly blending with the rest of your products. Now it is possible to blend it and make it look nice, but it takes a little more effort than I’m willing to put in everyday; ya feel?
Have you tried any of the ELf palettes? What are your thoughts?
See you tomorrow for top 5 Tuesday, lovelies!
Happy Monday everyone! Today I want to share with you guys a product I have been absolutely loving lately: the Colourpop Lippie Stix. I own 7 shades in various colors and finishes and love them all. They are available for $5 on ColourPop’s website and I HIGHLY recommend them! Below I have swatched the 7 shades I own:
From left to right: Polite Society (matte finish), Bound (glossy finish), I Heart This (matte finish), Topanga (satin finish), Bossy (matte finish), Frida (satin finish) and Lumiere (matte finish)
I love all of these. The color pay off is unreal and they are a dream to apply. None of them are transfer proof or super duper long wearing but I can get past that because they are amazing. I only own 7 shades right now but I plan to purchase more. They recently released a Matte X formula and after watching several swatch videos I will definitely be buying that entire collection.
What are your favorite Colourpop lippies? I would love you know!
See you guys tomorrow for top 5 Tuesday!
On my latest Walgreens run, I stumbled upon a product I had never seen before: the Wet n Wild Color Icon Metallic Liquid Lipsticks. My curiosity was piqued, so I purchased 2 of the 6 shades; pictured below.
On the left: Peony Express
On the right: My Tulips are Sealed
Right off the bat I will say I love the packaging. It is sturdy, sleek and aesthetically pleasing. Next, the obvious step was to put them on the lips.
Here’s Peony Express:
Here’s My Tulips are Sealed:
Well, they’re definitely metallic.
The applicator is your typical doe foot applicator; it is very similar to the feel of the applicator on the Maybelline Color Elixir glosses. Which is fitting because the tacky feel and lack of staying power and pigmentation would lead you to believe these are glosses.
That being said, they would probably be stunning over a satin or even matte lipstick; or for a bright and fun pop of color.
Overall I would say not to lose your marbles over these because they aren’t the best. If you can find a way to make them work, then I would absolutely go for it!!
