First Impression:Morphe 35k Palette

Hello Loves!

So I just recently recieved my morphe order and one of the palettes I bought was the Morphe 35k Palette. Let me just start by saying how much I love this palette. This palette is perfect for any cool toned smokey eye. (Which is part of the reason I love it so much!) With 35 different colors in the palette, a look can be created for any skin tone or eye color. The colors range anywhere from cool/medium toned browns to any possible shade of grey. The shadows are creamy and easily blendable.  This particular palette has decient pigmentation depending on if a shimmer or matte shade is used. The reason I say this is because it has a good color pay off but it is not a great one. (I have used worse.) I have found the shimmer shades give the beat color pay off when it is applied wet. If you are hunting for an amazing palette that can be used for almost any season, this is the one for you. I hope this review was helpful.

First Impression: Maybelline Master Concealer

Hello Loves!

Today’s post is going to be a first impression of the new concealer I recently picked up by Maybelline. I was super excited to try this out because I had heard so many good reviews about this product. My first thoughts on this concealer?? I love it. I like how thin and light weight this is and I love how easy it is to blend. This concealer is super creamy and very blendable. The only thing I do not like about this procuct is that there is nothing to apply the concealer with since it comes in a tube. Besides me not likeing to apply concealer with my fingers I do over all love this product for a cream highlighter. If you are hunting for a new cream highlighter, I would strongly recommend this one since it is high quality and affordable.

First Impression: Maybelline Dream Velvet Foundation

Good Morning!

I hope everyone is doing well. So I recently picked up the new (well newerish) maybelline dream velvet foundation since I had heard great reviews, and decided to try it out. After my first use I have decided that I have mixed feelings for this foundation. When I applied this, it had a very thick consistancy. It was almost paste like leaving me to feel like the foundation was not light weight at all. It did take a while to blend but I liked that when I applied it, the foundation did not set right away allowing me time to blend it out fully. With the foundation being very thick, it was full coverage and I love that in my foundations. Though it was thick, the foundation did not make my face look cakey (which is always a plus.) After wearing it for a day, I loved how long it has lasted and it did not budge at all. Overall I am not sure if I love this foundation yet. Personaly, I feel that this would be a foundation used during the winter since it is so thick. I would recommend this for people who have oily or combination skin since it does stay matte all day. Hope this review was helpful.

ABH Contour Kit VS. Kat Von D Shade n Light Palette

Hey Everyone!! 

So in today’s post I decided that I want to compare the difference between the different contour kits created by ABH and Kat Von D. As you know in previous reviews of both of these palettes, I love them both. And if asked, I would probably recommend both. Now that I have used both to almost death, I have decided to compare the two for you all. This post might be helpful if you are looking at both and are not able to quite choose which one you want to purchase. 

I am going to start by reviewing the palette by ABH. Let me just start by saying that this palette is great. There are many different shades for the highlight and contour colors perfect for any skin tone. I like this palette because of how easy the colors are able to blend and how some of the contour colors are also good to use as a bronzer. With this being said, it is my opinion that this palette is better for beginer use since it is easy to blend. This palette is also great if you are heavy handed when applying a bronzy glow or even your contour since the pigments glide on easily.

Now for the shade n light palette. I love this one a little more than the ABH kit because the colors are a little more lighter and pigmented. I feel that this palette is made for people who have a little more expierence with applying their makeup since the colors have a deeper pigmentation and a bit harder to blend in comparing to the ABH kit.

Overall I love both of these palettes, but I feel that the ABH palette is less pigmented but easier to blend than the shade n light palette. I do like the shade n light palette better than ABH because of the pigmentation though it is harder to blend. I hope this was helpful.

Review: Kat Von D Shade n Light Contour Palette

Hey Loves!

I had to change the intro since I was getting a little bored with the typical “hey everyone” in all of my posts. I hope everyone’s summer has had a great start. Mine has not been so fabulous since there has been nothing but rain for the past few weeks. šŸ˜¦ I want to apologize for the lack of posts since the end of school has been just a little insane, but since summer is now here, I have all the time in the world to share my tutorials, tips and tricks, and impressions on new beauty products when I am able to get my hands on a new product!

Today’s post is going to be a review on a product that has become a daily life saver for my slight obsession with contouring. Now that summer is here, it is time to go super bronze glow and a strong contour/highlight! If you are looking for a product that is capable of doing all of this in one palette, the shade n light palette is the palette for you. I am in LOVE with this product since it is so versatile and can be worn by anyone in any type of look. It is super pigmented so a little, really does go a long long way! The pigment applies smoothly and doesn’t allow your concealer to crease at all.

Now that I have all of the general greatness explained, I’m ready to get into the juicy details about the amazing contour colors in the palette! Let me start by saying that I am in love with these three shades! They are dark, pigmented, and very easy to blend (assuming you start with a little and build up, because otherwise they are a beast to blend.) The pigment in the colors are very neutral but also have enough tint to be used as a contour shade and a bronzer. This makes it the perfect product for any needs.

The highlights found in the palette come in the same three shades as any other highlight palettes but they hold their own type of sheen. Not like a shimmer but they are much lighter than any other product which is a good thing since it is used to brighten up the under eye and the center of the face.

Combine a top highlight and a bottom contour shade and you can transform into what ever you want to be. If you are hunting for a contour kit this is the one for you! I hope this review was helpful and I have a Summer Look Coming Soon!!!

Review: Naked Basics Palette


Hey Everyone! I had bought the Naked Basics Palette awhile back and now that I have used it enough, I can review it. I love this palette! Though it only has five shades I think it is Perfect for use on a daily basis. The colors are very pigmented and very smooth. There are four matte shades and one shimmer shade that I mainly use for highlighting the inner corner of the eye and the brow bone. I also like this Palette Because it is vary small and can be taken just about anywhere. By having this product nicely pigmented and so compatible it makes it the ideal Palette and you can do just about anything with it. If you are hunting for a new Palette, this one is great, especially for traveling. Hope your year is doing great!

Review: Maybelline The Nudes Palette


Hey Everyone! So a few months ago there was a lot of hype about the Maybelline The Nudes Palette. As the makeup fanatic I am, I had to try it. For it being a drugstore palette I was very impressed. The colors are pigmented but if you want them intense you have to build them up a lot. I am not much of a fan for the shimmer shades because they come out as a brushed sparkle rather than an intense shimmer shade. However I do enjoy the texture each color has and think it is worth purchasing. I like the amount of colors you get for the price and how easy the colors blend. If you are looking for a palette that isn’t too expensive and gives decent quality this is the one. I hope your is going great!
