Pin Up Pop Beauty Palette

Standard

Hi yall!

I was thinking of what to review today, so i went to see my stash of new products, and this caught my attention.

So this palette it is! This palette is from Pop Beauty and its called Pin Up Pop Palette. Its a very small and slim palette so for those of you who hates bulky packaging then this is for you.

Here you can see how slim the palette is..

This palette holds 12 small sized palettes. The eyeshadows are surprisingly pigmented. This is my first time trying out Pop Beauty Cosmetics and I already want more. Its BND 24.90 for 12 eyeshadows, its so worth it!

The eyeshadows are, as i said, very pigmented and easy to blend. I have to admit, some colours are a bit too chalky for my taste but it is still ok. You can see the swatches right here..

Looking good in the palette. It has a nice mirror too with a magnetic closure so that’s cool.

This palette claims to be perfect for those who are so used to smokey looks or natural colors but willing to try bright colors too. I totally agree. This palette has a wide selection of colors, they’ve got bright blues and greens but you can tone it down by smoking it out with the browns and blacks.

Overall, thumbs up for this palette, especially for the price. If you see this palette around, go buy it, give it a try, you will not be disappointed!

TheBalm Cosmetics Part 2

Standard

Heya everyone!

How are you all today? Now its time for the post that I’ve been promising to update which you can already see by the title, TheBalm Cosmetics Part 2. Lets get into it!

As you can see here, first we have the Balm Shelter. Balm Shelter is a tinted moisturizer. And as you all know, most tinted moisturizer would give light to medium coverage, enough to blend out our skin tones and hide blemishes.

I got the shade in Medium, its a tar bit dark for my NW20 skin tone but I don’t mind it at all.

It comes in a tube so you squeeze the product out. I like that.

The downside of this product is that it doesn’t have a lot of shade range. They only have 3, which is light, light/medium and medium. But then again, it does what its supposed to do so i love this.

Meet Matte

So this is how they look like on their pans

Now all these shadows are matte. But some, for me, are more of a satin finish. I like how its more of a satin finish because it is easier to work with than matte shadows.

Overall, good eye shadows. If you’re tired of your shimmery, glittery shadows and you don’t wanna look so over the top then this is for you. Personally, i love matte eye shadows. It’s good for an everyday look, especially for work or school, you just cant go wrong with this.

And the last but not least is..

Nudetude Palette – Naughty Version

I know they have a “Nice” Version of this palette. The only difference is the packaging, but all the shadows are 100% the same. I personally love the naughty version cause its just too damn adorable! I love it!

But here’s a picture that I got off Google, for you to see the comparison.

Lets look at the swatches,

As you can see, this has a better selection of mix finishes. So if you’re traveling and you don’t wanna bring so much make up with you then you cant go wrong with this. This has better selections than Meet Matte. You can do a day and night look with this. I really recommend this if you’re on a budget and you just want to get either one.

And also, both palettes come with small brushes as you can see by the photos. I don’t like brushes that comes with the palettes. I cant work with them cause they’re just too stiff. But I don’t mind that at all, cause for me, the products that matters.

So overall, I love everything that I bought from TheBalm Cosmetics. They are comparable with MAC, Benefit or even Urban Decay eye shadows. Again, I’ll say this, TheBalm Cosmetics don’t get the hype that they deserve. Try them out and you’ll not regret.

So until next time!

Coastal Scents Mica Powders

Standard

Hi girls!

I just finished rearranging my room. Got two new shelves for my room since mine was hopeless. Anyhoos, I felt like I wanted to do a blog post, something short, I’m sorry you guys!! It’s just that I’m really tired but I still want to do a post for you guys 🙂

Lets get on with it. Today’s topic is about the Coastal Scents’s mica powders. Mica powder is a purified and crushed mica mineral. Mica powder can be used for Lipstick, Foundation, Rouge, Fiber Paint, Faux Paint, Coloring Candles, Coloring Soaps, Coloring Paint & Resin.

I got myself 4 shades of mica powders. And they are..

DUO CHROME BLUE GREEN, PARADISE BLACK PEARL, CHOCOLATE MOUSSE, ANTIQUE GOLD

DUO CHROME BLUE GREEN, PARADISE BLACK PEARL, CHOCOLATE MOUSSE, ANTIQUE GOLD

Swatches:

DUO CHROME BLUE GREEN, PARADISE BLACK PEARL, CHOCOLATE MOUSSE, ANTIQUE GOLD (applied dry)

I’m very happy with the colors Ive chosen. They’re extremely pigmented, wet or dry. If you apply them wet, the colors would look more vibrant than how they already are. They’re pretty similar with Bare Minerals eye shadows, for me at least but this of course is cheaper. I totally recommend you guys to get these! Give em a try! You’ll love love LOVE them!

Now that is all chicas! Talk to you all soon!

Xx,
