Juvia's Place 'Warrior 2' Palette It's an all matte palette. I'm sure that it will be available at Ulta eventually but I'm not sure when. One thing that I wanted to mention- Walzana looks almost black in the palette and in swatches but it's actually a dark charcoal brown.

Hanging out/Everyday Palette: Juvia's PLACE - The Warrior Eyeshadow Palette has some of the prettiest and most pigmented shimmers that I’ve seen! You literally just need to swipe your finger across once to get this much pigment 🤩 the mattes can be patchy and take some work building up or blending, but it’s worth it for the shimmers. There is also little to no creasing (when I use an eyeshadow primer). I love the nude matte shade for setting my eye primer before I go in with the mattes in shimmers. There aren’t too many mattes in here, but you can always pull in another palette or use one of the shimmers. This is the perfect neutral, everyday, go anywhere palette for me since you can make any neutral look with it. Price: $20 . Best Party time palette: #Dominique Cosmetics - Celestial Thunder[products]# has unique colored shimmers that look so pretty under any lighting! They have the perfect amount of sparkle that even looks good in disco lights or low lighting. These are such unique colors that you can’t find any many other palettes. The shades do take some blending and building up, but they’re so pretty and unique! There is some creasing, but it’s not like you need the look to last that long. There are so many combinations and layering you can do with this palette and perfect for looks I wouldn’t normally wear during the day. Price: $35 . Festival/ Concert palette: PÜR - Festival Pressed Pigment Palette has a great combo of neutral and colorful shades! It even has some pressed pigments that look so sparkly and eye catching over shimmers. The shimmers alone are gorgeous, but with the pressed pigments on top, they’re like no other 🤩 they last a decent amount of time (~4 hours). The mattes are kind of hard to work with (just take some building up), but the real stand outs are the shimmers and pressed glitters! I’ve worn this to a few concerts and always get asked what my eyeshadow is! Price: $36
Huda Beauty 'New Nude' Palette ($65) . I haven't had a chance to use her yet, guys. I know. I'm a disappointment. But I'm going to take the palette to work with me tomorrow so hopefully I'll get to try it on a few different people and then do a first impressions post on the blogski. Based on swatches alone, I love it. Say what you will about Huda but the woman knows how to create a color story. The mattes swatched beautifully. A vast improvement over how her previous mattes swatched. The shimmers and glitters were emollient enough that I had no problems swatching them on bare skin but I'll probably use a glitter glue when I use them on the eyes just so I don't risk getting glitter in my eye or all over my face. I was able to swatch everything with brushes but the shimmers will definitely apply better with fingertips. If you're opposed to this, Huda has a double sided silicone applicator for $15 on her website, that's designed to work with these formulas. A few other brands have something similar... Kevyn Aucoin, I think Stila... Personally I don't mind using my fingers so I won't be picking it up but it looked nice and $15 seems like a reasonable price.
Natasha Denona 5 Pan Palette 02 Dupes!! Guess what??? For maybe the first time ever, it would actually be cheaper to buy the dupes than the palette! That never happens. Swipe left for the names! These Natasha Denona shadows are also repeated in her big 28 pan palettes and sold individually. The palette costs $48. As far as the dupes, Coastal Scents shadows are $2.95. Makeup Geek eyeshadows are $6. Colourpop eyeshadows are $4 . And lastly Sydney Grace shadows are $6 . As far as quality, I think it's a matter of opinion. When Natasha Denona shadows first came out, I was all about them just like everyone else. But as time has passed I've become disillusioned. The last ND palette that I bought was Lila. The formula is nice but not worth the obscene price tag, in my opinion. Also I think that MUG, Sydney Grace, ColourPop etc all make great eyeshadows too. But to each their own. If you love Natasha Denona and you can afford it, then go for it!
ABH Riviera Palette Dupes! I did little finger swatches comparing the dupes/palette today but they're not edited yet. I specifically used different dupes for Alyssa Edwards to give you more options but there's a lot of overlap in the two palettes. For the most part they're not EXACTLY the same but if you're in school, a single momma or just watching your coins then they're probably similar enough that you don't need both. I did a comparison back when Alyssa Edwards was first released.
Anastasia Beverly Hills 'Norvina' Palette Dupes It would be cheaper to buy the palette than 14 separate single shadows. If you want every shade in the palette and you don't already own similar colors then yes, by all means, get the palette. It's a nice palette. I like it. Dupes are for people who only like a few shades and can't justify spending $42 for 2 or 3 colors. Also if you've got a lot of makeup, chances are that you already own a few of these dupes. Besides Soul and Celestial, I'm happy with everything that I came up with. I like the Norvina palette but I'm not in love with it. If you're on the fence about whether to get it, I'd probably pass and buy dupes for the pinks and purples, if you don't already own similar shades.
Devinah 'Harmony Collection: Anodize Edition' ($60) . It's called Anodize and it's inspired by metals. The collection includes a welled palette and 12 metallic eyeshadows. It retails for $60. I'm having one of those lost weekends where time gets away from me so I haven't been able to use the palette on my eyes yet but the formula is consistent with what you'd expect from Devinah's shimmers.
Devinah Cosmetics Matte Greens ($5 each) Tada! More swatches! Swipe left for the names, different lighting, macros etc! How pretty is this color story tho?? Devinah Cosmetics continues to elevate with each collection and I'm so proud of my friend!
