Tarte Make Believe in Yourself Palette Swatches! 

Hi loves! It’s a beautiful day outside and I decided to blog early so there’s time to enjoy the sunshine! A good palette to emphasize on color today would be this limited edition Tarte palette! This palette was released earlier this year. This palette retails for $40 and has ten eyeshadows and one highlighter included. 

Here’s the front of the palette. It is a sturdy plastic and is a circle. Think of a bigger compact. It has a pretty jewel design on the top.
Here’s the back of the palette. There isn’t much information there just the palette name, serial number, weight, and company location. 
Here’s the inside of the palette. The shadows are set up around the highlighter. There is one matte shade to use as a base and the rest are shimmer and sparkle shades. There is a pretty nice mirror in this palette.
Here’s a more stylized picture of the shadows and highlighter. I put it on Instagram to show texture and sparkle.

I did five swatches at a time so there will be two groups and then a swatch of the highlighter.

Here are the first five shadows. Myth is a pretty matte pinky greige shade. Magic is a coppery metallic shade. Wings is a metallic orange. Marvel is a silver sparkle. Trance is a dark lavender with some sparkle in it. Some of these shades are pretty stiff but still blendable with a brush. 
These are the next five. These shadows are more pigmented with a pearl like quality. Fairy is a dark purple with a sparkle shift. Mystic is a gray shade with a sparkle shift. Dream is a pretty blue green with a subtle shift. Crystal is a very muted pink purple with a gold shift. Pixie is a light pink with gold shift. It reminds me of Sugarpill’s Trinket liquid lipstick.
Here’s swatches of the highlighter located in the middle of the pan. It packs a punch when swatched with a finger. I wish it was more visible when brushed but if you’re looking for a subtle shimmer, this is a good choice.

There is a lot more to this set. There’s brushes, liquid lipsticks, mascara, and dipliner. If you love fun limited-edition makeup, snag this adorable palette for the ultimate glitter and shimmer looks.

Too Faced X Nikkietutorials The Power of Makeup Collection and Swatches!

Hi friends and makeup collectors! Today I’m going to review the Too Faced X Nikkietutorials collaboration collection! I know this came out a while ago but I didn’t start blogging then. It took a while to decide to turn my makeup enthusiasm into an informative aide for people searching the internet. Okay, so I grabbed this on Sephora’s website on launch day because I love Nikkie. I’m not a huge Too Faced fan because I think their shades are very, well, boring and recycled with each palette that comes out. I also think the shades don’t last very long or all middle together into a very uncomplimentary Brown. Okay let’s start looking at the collection. 

Here’s the box the collection comes in. It has the same design as the palette inside.
Here’s the back of the box. It has a complete ingredient list of every item included and a quick picture preview of all the included items.
Here’s everything included in the collection. There’s a glamour tutorial guide, eyeshadow primer, eyeliner, glitter, mascara, and of course the palette.
Here is what the Glamour Dust in ‘Glitterally’ looks like. You definitely need a glitter glue or primer for this to stay on.
Better Than Sex is a great mascara. This one comes in a purple shade! It is exclusive to this collection!
This eyeliner is the Sketch Marker Eyeliner. It has a nice tip but I wish it flexed a bit like the ones I typically use.
Here’s the front of the palette.
Here’s the back of the palette. It has a quick summary of the collaboration.
Here’s the inside of the palette. It doesn’t have a mirror and reminds me of the Vegas Nay collaboration in setup. There are nine eyeshadows, two blushes, bronzer and highlighter.

I did the swatches by row since there are three in each row. The blushes are swatched together and the highlighter and bronzer are swatched together. 

Here’s the first row. It has two shimmer shades and a nice and light base shade.
This second row has two mattes that can be used as a base or transition shade. Irresistible is a very nice shimmer gold shade that is very subtle when used with a brush. Unfortunately, that does happen with a majority of gold shadows.
This is the last eyeshadow row. It has two shimmer colors and one matte black that is actually… very nice. A lot of black shadows don’t last or aren’t very pigmented. I’m happy with this black.
Here are the blush swatches. I Will Always Love You is a beautiful orange blush that adds a subtle color and shade to your cheeks. Justify My Love is a beautiful bright pink with some sparkle. It does get a bit of fallout but nothing frustrating or insane. It blends out quite nicely.
Here’s the bronzer and highlighter. Champagne Truffle is from the Chocolate Bar palettes and is Nikki’s go to which is why it was included. Chocolate Soleil is one of Too Faced best selling bronzers and smells like chocolate. I would live without the smell but it a nice contour shade.

That’s it for this collection! You get a lot of things with it so when it was on sale for $60 it was definitely worth it. I wish the shadows were a bit more unique but overall, it is nice but I just don’t grab for it much.
