Hi friends! My birthday is in six days and then I kiss my 20s goodbye. When I did my last Sephora purchase I decided to cash in some points and grab my birthday gift. They had the Fresh skincare set, a Jack Black skincare set and this new Tarte blush and lipstick mini that I’ve never seen before. I was intrigued and chose this cute guy.
Look at how cute this little duo is! Both are very light shades that compliment every skin tone.
I took a bunch of photos of this cute bundle and yes the shades are exclusive to the birthday set.
The back of the box shows that this set is vegan and cruelty-free! Yay! It has an ingredient list of both the blush and the lipstick and their names!
This was a pretty shot of both products. My vanity is proving to be a nice place to take detailed photos.
Now for the swatches. I did a brush and finger swatch of the blush and a lip swatch of the lipstick. Enjoy!
Here is the arm swatch of the blush. If you notice, it is very subtle when a brush is used.
And now for the lip swatch!
Please excuse the discontent on my face. It was in the middle of a year wave and I wasn’t too happy. Haha. This shade is a darker nude that works great with my skin tone.
There you all have it! I enjoyed both products and this nude lipstick actually doesn’t look awkward like some of them do on my skin. Xo!
Hi friends! For an early birthday present I bought myself Kat Von D’s super limited Lolita eyeshadow and blush. I bought it for $19 and cashed in some points and picked out the birthday gift. This eyeshadow single doubles as a blush that I’ve swatched for you and took a bunch of pictures. This is vegan and cruelty-free.
Here is the product in the box. It is a small cardboard box that has a pretty silver lettering on it.
The back of the box has a more detailed description of what the product is in different languages and ingredients listed.
The bottom of the box has the barcode and has the vegan stamp of approval! Yay! There are symbols showing that it is eye and face safe and also recyclable.
I was feeling pretty artsy with this so I added my O2 plant and my Cthulhu pop figure. The product is a beautiful dusty chestnut rose type of shade.
These are the swatches of Lolita. It blends out so well! I’m excited to use it today! I’m not too sure how much to use for blush so that will have to be played around with a bit.
There you have it, the beautiful eyeshadow single, Lolita. I’m pretty sure they are going to release it again in the future but only time will tell. Xo
Hey everybody! Today I decided to swatch and review my favorite Contour book ever. The LunatiCK Cosmetic Labs Contour Palette! This is a beautiful palette with an awesome mix of highlight, blushes, bronzer and gray toned contour shades. The palette is $74 originally which sounds like a lot but you get 12 pans. When you apply math to it, that means that each pan is about $6 each which is a steal. The really nice thing about is if you run out of your favorite shades, you can purchase them individually off of their website and they magnetize right into the palette. Let’s check out the packaging!
Here are the swatches!
Something else that I forgot to add about this palette is that you can also use it for eyeshadows and it is cruelty-free and vegan! Yay!!!
I know this palette has been out for a while, but I just started a swatch blog and it is in my collection. I have a bunch that I’m going to upload for you all for awareness on how things swatch by brush and finger for an accurate representation of shades and shadows.
This palette is a collaboration with beauty influencer Grav3yardgirl. It is a limited edition full face palette and still in stock for $45 on Tarte’s website. Basically, I love her. Not only does she do makeup looks and fashion views, but she does a really funny YouTube series called, ‘Does This Thing Really Work?’ Where she reviews As Seen On TV products! Yes!
For the swatches, I did the face shades first and then three eyeshadows at a time by row.
That’s it for all the swatches and review of this collaboration! Besides the highlighter, I love this palette. I reach for it for nice orange looks and completely reminds me of fall. I have no idea how long Tarte is going to keep this in stock so if you were curious about it, grab one!
Dang! That was a mouthful but so worth the huge title. Yes, you read that correctly. Another superb eyeshadow palette with an added blush! Yay! 🙂 This is a limited edition palette to celebrate 35 years of Elvira! It has the same feel and coffin design of the other palettes, but so different and fun! I love this palette so let’s get started with the pictures!
The only thing left are the swatches!
I believe that once this palette sells out, it’s out for good. Grab one to add to your collection!
