Hi readers! This is going to be a quick post today because I finally hit 30! Happy birthday to me! I managed to grab Charmed when it was back in stock last week! This pan only cost $5 and is so versatile. Most people use this as a highlighter also!
This is a pretty purple and duochrome into a greenish blue tint. This shade is super pretty and with it being vegan, it definitely appeals to me!
For the swatch of this pretty shade, I did a finger and brush swatch! Enjoy!
There you guys go! I hope you love it as much as I have! Xo!
Hi friends! Sorry I updated so late today! My birthday was on Thursday and my mom wanted to take my daughter and I out for the day. It was a blast 🙂 we just got back a bit ago and I made dinner and completely realized that I didn’t update this awesome palette on here today! This is the new Juvia’s Place The Zulu Eyeshadow palette. This palette was on sale for $17.99 which is a steal for these limited edition colors. Let’s have a closer look.
These palettes always have such a celebration of heritage and lovely design. The palette is pretty compact.
The back of the palette is always blank and the information is on the boxes. This box has a small blurb celebrating the Ndebele people, the ingredients, company information and that this product is cruelty-free.
These are the shades! There are six bright matte shades and three shimmer shades. I am such a fan of bright colors I needed this in my collection. The one reason I didn’t jump on the Naked Heat palette by Urban Decay is because they didn’t include a yellow. I just wish the shades impressed me more.
For the swatches, I did them by row so there are three shades in each row.
This first row is all matte shades that are very pigmented. They didn’t have names so I’ll just describe them by sjade. The bright orange reminds me of Sugarpill’s Flamepoint but you can’t go wrong with so many oranges. The yellow is very vibrant and pigmented. Yet again, it reminds me of Buttercupcake by Sugarpill. This last shade is a burnt orange that is very pigmented and a nice shade to work wirh.
The middle row is my favorite in this palette. The first shade is a bright almost matte turquoise shade with a green tint to it. It blends very well and used it in a look on Saturday. The middle is a shimmery lime green with sparkle. As always, Juvia’s Place has amazing shimmer shades. The last shade reminds me of the ocean. It is a bright blue with silver sparkle. This is so bright and pretty.
The last row has beautiful shades in it. The first one is a shimmer shade. It has a rose base with a lot of gold sparkle in it. The next shade is a bright matte red shade. I really enjoy the texture and shade of this usual red. It is bright. The last shade is a pretty matte purple that blends quite well.
This palette is a steal for the price and the color pay out. The pans are a decent size and Juvia’s always delivers a decent product. Xo
Hi friends! Today I decided to show a palette that has a bunch of colors in it. The Masquerade Mini by Juvia’s Place. The Masquerade Mini retails for $28 while the larger palette is $35. The pans are a pretty decent size in the mini and are larger is the larger palette. There are also 16 shades in each.
For the swatches, I did them by row so there will be four rows with four shades in each! 🙂
There is a new eyeshadow palette coming out soon this month! I’ve heard the 26th! That one is geared towards night and day looks! Xo
Hi loves! I know you all read about me raving about Juvia’s Place so much but I need to get all the swatches down so you all can see how beautiful these are! This one is the original Nubian palette!
Since the shades do not have names, I swatched them by row in the same fashion just with no names. For example, it will be row one and the shadows from left to right.
Overall, I love this palette. There are a lot of looks that you can build with it and all of them blend together extremely well. It is very tiny and you still get a lot of shadow in it. The cost of this beauty is a very affordable $30. It is usually on sale for $23.50.
Hey everybody! I went out to Ulta today to check out things. Man, going in there during the 21 Days of Beauty is insane. I didn’t go in for anything on sale today, I was there for one purpose: NYX Simply Vamp Lip Cream. Luckily for me, all NYX products were buy one, get one 50% off! Which means one full price lip cream was $6.50 and the sale price was $3.25. Win! The only two that were out of stock were Enamored and Bewitching. I also grabbed one Nude because I wanted to take advantage of the sale. To be honest, I have a bunch of nudes shades but I like dark colors which is why I leaned more towards the Vamp collection. Here are what they look like just in case you haven’t seen them!
I know I already did arm swatches for you all but I wanted to swatch them on my lips so you can see how they actually look properly applied. I also used my favorite shade, Covet, with the black top coat so you can see it in action!
There’s all the swatches of my purchase today! I was super impressed with the shade selection, application and how evenly the shades looked and stayed on my lips! For the price and the amount that you receive, hook yourself up and grab some!
This full-size palette with twelve shades was given out in February’s Nomakenolife subscription box. In total, there are four different variants of this palette.
NOYL teamed up with a popular TV personality, Zawachin (she’s known for being a past idol and her talents with monomane meiku, or imitation makeup) to create different palettes that can help with any look, from everyday to glamour.
When I first got the palette, I definitely did not have high hopes for it. The packaging looked cheap, the brush is two-sided (one with a sponge and the other with bristles that looked scratchy.
I was really intrigued by the colors but it looked like a children’s makeup palette!
This is the back of the palette. Note how the shades are set up in the picture. A-F are in the middle, G-I are on the left side and J-L are on the right.
When I did the swatch test on my arm with my finger, I was really impressed with how much they could be built up, how buttery the shades were and just how impressive the shimmer shades were!
Basically the bottom line on this one is that I’m seriously impressed! For a really affordable price and how many shadows are in the palette, this is a steal and definitely gets my approval for a fun palette to use! Xoxo
