These are my go to date night, going out, get fancy eye colors. They add a pop of sexy mystery to your eye look without having to use multiple shadows. They are the ideal shadows for hazel eyes because they are basically hazel shadows! From left to right: 1. This one is URBAN DECAY - URBAN DECAY Single Eyeshadow
in Tonic. I just got it and I don’t have anything to compare it to yet! The next 3 are the ones I wear alllll the time and I get tons of compliments every time: 2. URBAN DECAY - URBAN DECAY Single Eyeshadow
in Lounge - A gorgeous emerald/brown/red shift. If you use a good primer it won’t have any fall out and it’s just SO pretty. Some nice metallic brown liner and black mascara and you will look like a fierce feline. 3. NATASHA DENONA - Star Eyeshadow Palette
in Orion - This one is a bit more teal/ruby but the texture is really strange. It’s very creamy and hard to work with with a brush. When you try to pick it up it kind of crumbles all over. It’s really pretty once you get it on but you really need to use eye pads and do you eye make up first to avoid fall out though. It’s my least favorite of the bunch. 4. BUXOM - Customizable Eyeshadow Bar Single Refills
in No Faux (Iridescent Snakeskin) - Very similar to the Urban Decay color an emerald/brown/red shift. Good texture. Maybe just a bit more of a brown tone than the Urban Decay. 5. ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Eye Shadow Single
in Dragonfly - This one is more of a blue/black tone. I was trying this one out to see how it would play with green/brown hazel eyes but I’m not totally convinced yet. My eyes can look dark and witchy very fast. Does anyone have any color shift/duochrome shadows that you love?? I’m always looking for new ones!

Mini eyeshadow palettes comparison
Easy to bring- small eyeshadow palette I remember few years ago, Natasha Denona suddenly became famous of its Sunset eyeshadow palette, the price is kind of expensive, which is $129. And I found that they also have mini eyeshadow palettes. So I got two of them, mini Star eyeshadow palette and mini Sunset eyeshadow palette. Every mini eyeshadow palette has five shades, they go pretty prefect together. Mini Sunset Eyeshadow Palette: It is easy to see that this palette is reddish and orangish shades, 2 matte and 2 shimmering metallics and 1 sparkling foiled shade. The color tone of this palette is warm and glowing. When I want to have a summer or reddish makeup, I would definitely choose this combination. Mini Star Eyeshadow Palette: For this palette, the color combines different color tones, 2 nude colors, 1 green-brown duo-chrome, 1 brown color and 1 sparking golden olive. Greenish and brownish color tones create this palette. I like to use this palette for metallic or dark makeup effect. Strong color payoff, pure pigments, extremely buildable, blendable and rich and cream texture are the characteristics of Natasha Denona’s eyeshadow. These two palettes are really small, they are soooo easy to bring and prefect for travel. Even with only 5 colors, you’ll be able to meet your everyday needs. If not enough, just bring as many mini palettes as you want. They do not take a place.

WORTH IT? $88 vs. $25
TOM FORD - TOM FORD Extrême Eye Color Quad in Golden Mink $88 I love this eyeshadow palette- but I must admit it’s overpriced! (I did get it at a discount at an outlet cosmetics store though!) The eyeshadow shades are definitely ones that I can wear anytime and customize for special occasions, but it’s no different to many of my other much less expensive eyeshadow palettes. NATASHA DENONA - Star Eyeshadow Palette $25 This mini eyeshadow palette is almost 1/4 of the price of Tom Ford’s and the quality is just as good! The shadows are more pigmented (can be a good or bad thing) and come in very similar shades + plus a duochrome one! The looks you can get from the Tom Ford palette, the Natasha Denona one can do similar. So is the Tom Ford Eye Quad worth it? I love it now that I have it, but no. You can get almost 4 of these mini palettes from Natasha Denona for the same price- and for the same, if not better, quality!

Are you a holo fan?
I love a holographic shimmer, a color shift, a duochrome. I’m a sucker for them all. Just a collection of holographic inspired products ogx - Kandee Pop Glam Ultra-Hydrating Conditioner this and the shampoo that go with it are my favorite. They smell so sooooo good. And the scent stays. I actually hadn’t used regular shampoo/condition in a couple years but broke my routine just for this scent. Now I’m hooked. It’s great for coaxing a wave out too. KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - Alchemist Holographic Palette eh. Pretty and fun. You aren’t wearing it everyday so who cares beyond that. It’s cool as hell. LUSH - Groovy Kind Of Love Bath Bomb I could go broke buying all the Lush bath bombs. This one is no exception. Smells amazing. The color can sometimes stain your skin though, it’s hit or miss. GLAMGLOW - Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer this is one of those products that I can’t ever tell if I love it or hate it. It smells good. Has a good texture. Sometimes I’ll wear instead of moisturizer and I feel like a shimmery oil slick. I think it’s better dabbed on dry spots. I have it in Nude Glow Rare Beauty - Always an Optimist Illuminating Primer URBAN DECAY - URBAN DECAY Single Eyeshadow I would buy every dang duo chrome color Urban Decay made I love these so much! These 2 are Tonic and Lounge. BECCA - Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter I use this alllllll the time as a highlight for the inner corner of my eyes or to give my lips an extra pop. It’s way too shimmery for all over though. #Doll Face Beauty - hologram prismatic lip gloss[products]#[FourStars] perfect holographic color. Sheer shimmery blue. A little sticky and doesn’t last long.

Champagne Gold Eyeshadow! SO Beautiful!
URBAN DECAY - URBAN DECAY Single Eyeshadow- Space Cowboy Bobbi Brown Luxe Eye Shadow - Moonstone Comparison of both shades: The base shade: Both of them have a very light champagne gold shade base that is barely visible on the eyelids. Space Cowboy has a warm toned base shade, while Moonstone has a neutral toned gray-brown shade. Color of shimmers: The shimmers of Space Cowboy are more silver white, while the shimmers of Moonstone are more gold. Degree of shimmers: The shimmers of Space Cowboy are less dense but the silver white makes it more dazzling. However, the shimmers of Moonstone are denser, so they're actually neck to neck. Conclusion: They are similar, but Moonstone is more expensive than Space Cowboy. People who are more price-sensitive should go for Space Cowboy.

Bronze Gold Glam with Affordable Makeup!
I did a little haul when BH Cosmetics had a 65% off site wide sale a few weeks back. I have tried BH Cosmetics before back in the day when they were known for their large 88 shimmer/matte palettes. The quality was really good for the price, but they have leveled up since then. This palette is from their Glam Reflection collection. This one is the Gilded palette. This one has bronze, gold, copper and earthy tones. I have been in to these shades lately and was able to cop this palette for $5.99 during their sale! This palette is currently on sale right now for $13.50 but originally retails for $18. BH cosmetics is always having sale so if you want to get this palette for cheaper I would wait. The brown shades are so soft and subtle. The color pay off is beautiful. The lightest brown shade was actually more pigmented in the eye than in the pan so I would use this palette lightly. The shimmers are more subtle, but buildable. I really wanted a super glam look today so I used ELF’s liquid glitter as an eyeshadow topper in the shade “flirty birdy ” to intensify the look. I was surprised because I honestly didn’t expect the quality to be so good. I truly believe that BH Cosmetics is a hidden gem. They don’t get as much hype as they deserve. Have you tried BH Cosmetics? What do you think about this brand? Francesca 💋

So Jaded 💎 + Just My Luck 🍀
COLOURPOP - Just my luck COLOURPOP - So jaded I reviewed both of these palettes already but I wanted to post a look I did with them to showcase how well they blend and how pigmented the colours are. I did this look in about 20 minutes altogether. The colours were super easy to blend and they are buildable. I decided to go a little lighter with them as I’m up at the cottage and plan on ruining it with sweat and when I jump in the lake LOL 😋 The glitter pans in the So Jaded palette are absolutely gorgeous and easy to use. They went on with ease. Be careful though, once you get it in a spot you don’t want it, it’s tough to get off. I didn’t complete the look with lashes because 1. I forgot lash glue 🤷🏼‍♀️ and 2. I’m at the cottage anyways. I recommend these palettes 100%. 5/5 ⭐️‘S !!

IS THE KAT VON D SHADE + LIGHT EYE SHADOW PALLETTE WORTH IT?
IS THE KAT VON D SHADE + LIGHT EYE SHADOW PALLETTE WORTH IT?
Is the Kat Von D pallette really worth the price? The shade + light palette on Amazon is £60, but with the amount of dupes there is, should you buy it?  The shades in the palette create a great look for glam or natural eyeshadow, but the colours are basic and can most certainly be found cheaper with similar formula. Without a doubt the palette which came out in 2015 which created 'hype' is highly pigmented and has a brilliant blendable formula. Some shades have alot of fallout too. The packaging for the shade + light pallet is beautiful and is very protective. Using this pallette I did a makeup look using shades solar, latinus, succubus and liberatus. -First I used shade succubus as a base.  -Then I used latinus in my crease and blended up into the brow bone. -After I put shade solas in my deep crease after applying shade liberatus on the outer side of my lid -Finally put concealer on the inner/medium part of the lid, apply fox eyeliner and mascara For this I used basic affordable eyebrushes from Amazon and an urban decay double sided brush. HOWEVER! There’s a dupe made by revolution. The shades are identical along with the formula! Compare to Kat Von D shade + light pallet, there is no fallout unless the brush applied with is tapped.  The packaging looks cheap, but you pay for what you get. Both pallets are almost the same except for the packaging. But overall I believe that the revolution pallet is likely be more worth buying the makeup revolution pallet if you’re on a budget.

Is it just me or UD’s naked heat palette is a little too monotonous? I attempted so many looks and it all seem to turn in to this one huge burnt orange/sienna glob. Don’t get me wrong, I love my naked heat but sometimes I feel like it just needs a pop from other palettes I added Colourpop’s “Starstruck” shade from the Smoke Show palette in my inner lid and it definitely transformed! I love both of these palettes

I have officially become OBSESSED with bright colors! I truly believe anyone can rock them. You just need to find colors and placements that make you happy. My go to simple look for brights is one shade on the lip and blended into the crease, with a shimmer down the middle of the crease onto the lid. It's especially great if you have hooded lids like I do. The shadows on my eyes are from Huda Neon Brights pink palette for $29. I love this palette so much. A couple of the shades look similar on the eye but i still love the rest of the palette. What are your thoughts on brights?? Let's talk!
