Eye Shadow Palette Haul

In the last month I have purchased multiple eye shadow palettes. Some are new brands that I have never had before and others are must loved brands.

Here is what I bought:

SMASHBOX

Cover Shot: Petal Metal Eye Shadow Palette — Smashbox + Vlada

I was so excited to try this palette when I ordered it. It’s my first smashbox eyeshadow palette. To be honest, I have only used this shadow once so I will have to try it a few more times before I decide if I really like it that much. This swatched very well and it applied really well too. So far, so good. I would still like to try the simmer shades with like a glitter glue.

FENTY BEAUTY

Moroccan Spice Eyeshadow Palette

I haven’t tried this fully yet but I have swatched the colours and I am pleasantly surprised with the payoff with these colours. The foils are truly amazing. Like, WOW! So foiled! This is my first fenty full size product. I will be getting more.

TARTE

Love, Trust & Fairy Dust Eyeshadow Palette

From first impression I’m not sure I like this palette as much as I thought I would. I love tarte products and I love the pinky shades so I needed this. When I used this on my eyes I thought the mattes weren’t very pigmented and the shimmer wasn’t very pigmented so I was disappointed but I would still like to try more shades and in a different way maybe.

LAURA LEE LOS ANGELES

Nudie Patoodie Eyeshadow Palette

Of course, I love Laura Lee so I need it all… the way everything ships is pure shit for me and my first palette had a bunch of broken shadows. I contacted customer service which I don’t like doing but I’ve also never had anything show up broken. Customer service let me know that the foiled shadows can be pressed back into the pan just with a finger since the formula is very soft. They told me they would send another palette on them. I received the second one with some broken shadows but I didn’t want to complain about it… Anyways, when I tried the shadows out and swatched then… love, love, love! All of the shades blend very well and are very pigmented! The foils are amazing and all the colours match so well.

Shout out to Laura Lee’s customer service though! They should be called the dream team!

What are some new palettes you have recently purchased?

Stay beautiful as always! ❤️

Review: ColourPop NKLA + Laura Lee

I have to say first off that I love ColourPop for the price and quality of product. When I heard that Laura Lee was doing a collab with them I was stoked but when I heard that all the proceeds would be going to No Kill LA I was ecstatic! What a great thing to do! I was a little late to the party to buy this collection but I am so happy I did. None of these items have let me down yet and I have been wearing the shadows non stop for the last week.

Here is what is in the collection!

There is also 2 Super Shock singles that are not part of Laura Lee’s Collab but was still ColourPop’s NKLA partnership which are:

Puppy Love

Cat Nap

All of the shadows are incredibly easy to work with just like all of ColourPop’s Super Shock Shadows. These colors scream Laura Lee just as colors that she would wear herself.

Here are some swatches of the shadows:

All of the lip products are classic ColourPop. BAM is a comfortable lip stick with a satin finish. Which is alright by me. I tend to like the more budge proof lips or just matte but going into wearing BAM and knowing that it WILL transfer was fine for me as I was just careful with it. The nice thing with BAM is that it stains the lips so even though it transfers you will still be left with a red stain. Which could be good or bad depending how you look at it… WHAM and GLAM are beautiful lip colors and I love to wear them at certain times.

What do you own from ColourPop? Have you tried any Super Shock Shadows?

Stay beautiful! ♥
