Four Hottest Eyeshadow Palettes for Fall 2017 - Huda, Kat Von D, Nyx, Too Faced


This week on my youtube channel, I tackled four of the hottest most hyped eyeshadow palettes that have come out this fall.  I know you've all heard about the Huda Beauty Desert Dusk palette, and perhaps you've heard of the Kat Von D Saint and Sinner palette as well.  I don't think there's a corner of the makeup world that isn't curious about the Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes palette, and I know the NYX Professional Makeup Sugar High caused quite a stir when we first spied it at Cosmoprof North America this year.  I've chosen to swatch and review these highly hyped eyeshadow palettes and tell you my thoughts, from my point of view and my skintone, and hopefully help you to decide for yourself if they will work for you.


**Find the first three here:  http://go.magik.ly/ml/6zp8/
The Nyx Sugar High can be found here:  http://go.magik.ly/ml/6zpa/

I'm really curious to hear your thoughts as well.  Have you purchased any?  Have you seen or swatched them in the store?  What are you most looking forward to seeing this fall?

First Impressions - Sephora Collection Pro Editorial Eyeshadow Palette


My curiosity was peaked when I saw the three new Sephora Collection Pro eyeshadow palettes on their website, (28 shades/$68).  There are Cool, Warm and Editorial editions.  I had no preconceived ideas about any of them but seeing them in person, I found myself captivated and curious about the Editorial palette.  It thrilled me the same way looking at a fresh box of Crayons did when I was a kid.  I decided to pick it up and want to tell you my first impressions.  A full and complete evaluation of all the colors will take some time.

Pro, eyeshadow

I love color and have been a little bored lately with all the warm brown and orange palettes that have been coming out.  And yet, when I use them, I love the look on the eyes.  However, I just found myself wanting some change and desiring a little bit of color.  The palette kind of reminds me of old school Mac from the mid 2000's when we used to wear a lot of color on the eyes to exercise creativity.

Anyway, the first row has a matte for a base color or matte highlight, several iridescent wash type of colors and two glittery silvers, one leaning more white while the other leans more grey.

eyeshadow, pro

The second row has me completely captivated.  I love every color in it.  It's sunset eyes in all of it's glory.  The matte shades kick up quite a bit of powder, more than I expected at first.  However, I'm seeing this as the new fall trend in mattes and it's easily enough to deal with.  I just love every one of these colors!

eyeshadow, pro

The third row has varying tones from chartreuse to shimmering grass green to matte teal to blue.  My very favorite color in this row is the matte teal leaning green.  It's fantastic!!  The pigmentation is excellent.  It is just an incredible color.  The chartreuse is a very clean color and I find these all apply to true the color in the pan.  The shimmers are excellent as well.

eyeshadow, pro

I haven't figured out the last row yet.  It has shimmers and a duochrome that swatch heavier than they apply to the eye, for the most part.   On the left are two colors that are fairly sheer shimmers.  The third color from the left is a very faint brown with a green duochrome and it is also fairly sheer.  The cranberry is pretty and the rust is a gorgeous fully shimmered shadow.  The black is intense in pigmentation and a great addition to any shadows you might wear.

eyeshadow, pro

On my Instagram, I have a palette picture, swatches and videos of the duochromes as they move in the light.  It gives a better idea, I think, of the shades and their depth of value.

I can't say yet how much I'll wear these shades and the various textures, but I can tell you that this is a high quality set of shadows.  I didn't expect it to be as rich as it is and that makes me quite happy with my purchase.  I've always liked Sephora Collection products but this palette is like a step up in quality.  It can hold it's own against the quality of any other shadows on the market.  At a little over $2 per shade, These palettes are definitely worth a look.

Follow Sephora Collection on Instagram, and Sephora across all social media channels.

Have you looked at the Pro palettes?  What did you think?  What were you drawn to?

Now At Ulta Beauty - Models Own Cosmetics - Review and Swatches




There's a new video on my youtube channel which contains information about my Becca Cosmetics X Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette Giveaway, Models Own makeup, Pixi Beauty Misting Sprays, Becca Bronzers, Stila Cosmetics and more.  There are pictures and swatches, if you want to watch.  If youtube isn't your thing, read on below and let's talk a little about the brand Models Own, a UK cosmetics company now being sold at Ulta Beauty....and it's even on sale this week!!  Models Own is a cruelty free company with many vegan options.


I was super excited to see Models Own in Ulta.  I have a couple of their nail polishes that I bought years ago that are in my stash but I honestly had no idea they had makeup!  Today I'm going to show you the highlighter and two liquid lipsticks that I was sent as well as two eyeshadow palettes that I purchased to check out the brand.

In the above mentioned video, as well as my The Beachwaver video, I am wearing both Lix Matte Liquid Lipsticks that I received.  I'm using them as an ombre' type of lip with Coral Fresh on the inner lip and Berry Cool as the main lip color.  These are normally priced at $7.99 but are on sale at Ulta for $5.99.



I love to wear them both together as an ombre' but I have also worn them individually.  One thing that I particularly like about Coral Fresh is that it's a really wearable coral for me.  Sometimes coral can look too bright, too neon, or too garish on me, but this is a great color.  Berry Fresh is a color that will work for everyone and a good way to ease into a darker color or a red.

The wear of the Lix Matte Liquid Lipsticks for me has been really good.  I drink a lot of water day and night, (ok Diet Coke too!), and it doesn't come off when I drink.  There is color drain around the inner lip when I eat.  That will either bother you or it won't.  It doesn't bother me because it wears really well otherwise.  I find them comfortable and an amazing liquid lipstick for the price.  I obviously want to try more colors.  At this time, there are only six colors at Ulta, and I'm really hoping for a good nude pink to pop up in the future.  There are eight colors on Models Own website, which does ship worldwide.

If you follow me on social media, you know where I'm going next...Models Own Sculpt & Glow Highlighting Powder, (.5 oz).  The color I have is Golden Sand.  This is normally priced at $11.99 and is now on sale at Ulta for $8.99.  It's HUGE.


Guys.....guys....we just have to have a chat about this!!  This is an incredible highlighter!  Oh my gosh, like hidden gem in Ulta!  Go get both.  Now!  Seriously so pretty.  It shows a lightly pink champagne on me, which is my favorite highlighting tone.


I have more swatches in my video.  You might want to check them out.  This highlighter can apply lightly for a glow, or layered for a GLOOOW.  It lasts until you take it off.  The staying power is unreal.  It's so beautiful, doesn't have any glitter, and gives a stunning sheen.  I can say with confidence that this highlighter will definitely be in my Best Highlighters of 2017 video.  The best buying advice I've ever given you is to get this highlighter.

The first eyeshadow palette I'll show you is Vintage Rose. I bought these palettes at the full retail price of $17.99 but they're now on sale for $13.49 for a .24 oz palette.  I was wearing it in the video at the top of this post.  I think the packaging is pretty and gives you a good idea of what the palettes will be like.




I've just worn this once so far so I can't give you a full review but I do want to show you swatches and give you my initial first impressions.  I have some thoughts in the video as well.


The mix of colors is pretty.  I chose this as a supplement to the Too Faced Natural Love eyeshadow palette.  That one is a nice lighter colored palette but for my taste, I have to throw some darker shades in and I think this palette will work well.  The matte shades show up very lightly on my arm but better on the eye.  They also come with a two sided brush, which I show in the video, that I used for my look.   Hmm, a picture of my eye look here would have been good, right?

My second palette is Wonderland, a cool mix of greys and blues.


I haven't worn this yet, but I'm looking forward to it.  I'm really a cool lover and wanted something vastly different from all the warm bronzes, oranges and reds we've seen lately.

This palette is mostly shimmers, which I really like.  The two mattes don't swatch well on my arm, but I can tell the plummy color is going to be a great crease color for me.  I love colors like that in my crease.  I can't comment yet on the wear but I'm looking forward to giving it a go.


So far, my experience with Models Own is really nice.  I look forward to checking out more of their products.  My testing of the highlighter and the liquid lipsticks has been very exciting and positive.

You can find Models Own products at Ulta or on the Models Own website.  Follow them on their social media channels on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest.

How about you?  Have you seen Models Own in your local Ulta?  Have you tried any yet?

New Becca X Chrissy Teigen Palette First Impressions, Swatches, Pics and More!


When I first saw pictures of this palette in blurry little snagged photos online, I didn't think it was too exciting.  The more pictures that were released, the more I thought I might be interested.  When I followed coverage of the Becca X Chrissy Teigen Influencer party in LA, I saw scads of pictures and swatches posted.  Then I got excited.  Like I couldn't wait to get this palette.  Have a view of my youtube and see if it lived up to my expectations or not.  I'm showing pictures, swatches, a first impression and application.


The Becca X Chrissy Teigen palette will be available for sale on Sephora.com and in stores on May 11th, 2017 for $46.  Check it out and let me know if you think this palette is a fit for your style.  I'd love to know!

Charlotte Tilbury Quick 'N Easy Red Carpet Party Look Makeup Set Swatches And Review


There are a couple seasons during the year that are my favorite; Awards Season ranking right up there at the top.  Yes, that time of year when celebs are nominated in all categories for the most coveted of artisan prizes.  There are winners and losers and behind all the flashes of the photogs are the people who create the beauty.  Charlotte Tilbury is the most in-demand makeup artist creating the gorgeous looks of the top A list stars.  Her team provides the most beautiful looks that I see on the carpets year after year.  She created an incredibly beautiful and innovative makeup and skincare line and I am fortunate to feature a Quick 'N Easy 5 Minute Makeup Look Set, (5 pc/$75) for you today.

The set I was sent is called Red Carpet Party.  The name and the press kit inspired me to do a series on both Snapchat and Instagram Stories that I called Red Carpet Sundays.  Utilizing the makeup set, plus other Charlotte Tilbury items that I already owned, I had a blast getting ready and watching shows with all of you, dishing the stars, the awards and all the beauty.  The PR Kit had a fun clap board to play with, too.  :)

video

The Quick N Easy 5 Minute Makeup Look set Red Carpet Party features a Mini Wonder Glow Instant Soft Focus  Beauty Flash.  This is a multi-use item and can be used under makeup, over foundation, or over Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream for a lasting glow.  The tube is 15 ml in weight and you can think of it as photoshop in a tube.  It smooths, blurs, brightens and gives you a nice glow.  It is an excellent primer to put down before your foundation.  A full sized 40 ml tube is $55.

The namesake of this set is the Matte Revolution Lipstick in Red Carpet Red. ($34).  This lipstick is a wearable stunner!!  It has 3D glowing pigments which create a luminous finish in a long wearing matte formula providing a lit-from-within look; the makeup look that Charlotte Tilbury is known for.  Both the look and the wear of the lipstick are incredible.  It's a totally wearable red and a comfortable matte formula.  I could never think of enough adjectives to describe this amazing futuristic formula.  You are receiving a full sized lipstick in the glorious rose gold Charlotte Tilbury signature tube.

Pair the lipstick with the included Kiss N Tell Lip Cheat lip liner, ($22).  These liners are iconic, providing great wear and yet are still comfortable.  Lip Cheats are waterproof, which I can attest to, and provide 6 hours of wear, to which I also concur.  These are the best lip liners I've used.  I have several in my stash.  This is a full sized product.

Line, smudge or smoke your eyes with the included full sized  Rock N Kohl eyeliner in Barbarella Brown, a nice rich nearly black brown, ($22).  It is waterproof and wears incredibly even on my runny allergy eye.  Allergy season is 12 months long in Phoenix, but I've never had any problems with unwanted smudging or disappearances by the Tilbury eyeliners.  They're not dry at all; they apply and blend like a comfortable dream and wear just like your favorite pair of jeans.

In the swatches, the Wonder Glow is pictured to the right, under the star below and above, it is under the line at the top.

The fifth item is a bronze makeup bag with rose gold lip kisses all over it.  It's gorgeous and holds a whole day's worth of makeup.  It measures about 5.5" x  3" x 2".  The zipper is the gorgeous signature rose gold.  I put everything from my C.T. makeup looks below in the bag and still had room for mascara, a concealer and a powder.

For my Red Carpet Sundays looks, I utilized a lot of products that I own in the Charlotte Tilbury line, along with the Red Carpet Party Look Makeup Set.

Isn't this the most incredible packaging?  If you saw my Highlighters of 2016 video or blog post, you might know that Charlotte Tilbury's Bar Of Gold was my favorite highlighter of 2016.  It is pictured at bottom left in the picture.  Next to it is the Light Wonder Youth Boosting Perfect Skin Foundation in #3 Fair.  The chocolate bronze circle is the Cheek To Chic blush Sex On Fire.  The retro looking compact at the top is face sculpting bronzer and highlighter duo Filmstar Bronze and Glow.

This is beautiful makeup even before you put it on.  Using these products, I look airbrushed and photoshopped even without filters.

It's totes amazeballs.  The whole look made me feel like I was a star who received the best Charlotte Tilburry application in order to walk the carpet.  Even without photoshop, I feel ready to meet Ryan Gosling.  I have a great imaginary life.  In it, I saw Ryan sitting nearby and did my best "hey, girl, HEY!"

I wondered, as I sat dressed to the nines, if Beyonce has to worry about the glare on her face from her jewelry.  And then I spy Meryl.  I see you, girl.

Thank goodness I had practiced my gracious loosing face as my imaginary lead actress role lost to Emma Stone.

I wouldn't normally post so many pictures of myself on a post, but I had a funny story in my head, so it just had to come out, right?  Just to show you what a photoshopped picture would look like so that you can compare the actual look to actual photoshop, here's a pic I messed with.  I think if you look again at the previous pictures, you can see how truly incredible the Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow and Light Wonder foundation make my skin look in my real life.

Oh wait, did I say I lost the award?  No!!  There was an envelope mix-up!!  Here I am after the confusion thanking my fans and the amazing Charlotte Tilbury for my look all throughout awards season.

Are Makeup Revolution New-Trals Vs Neutrals & Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyeshadow Palettes Dupes?

Press Sample


When I received the Makeup Revolution Professional Eyeshadow Palette New-Trals Vs Neutrals, I was struck by what seemed to be a strong similarity in look to the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance shadow palette.  I posted a picture on Instagram and got a lot of messages asking how similar it was to the Modern Renaissance.  Was it a dupe?  Let's see.


This palette contains 16 shadows and runs strong in the orange, red and neutral categories.  It has a double sided brush, (which I find useful), inside for application.  Some swatches should help, right?


It has everything...shimmering lights, mediums and dark...matte lights, mediums and dark.  The last shade on the bottom doesn't show correctly for the camera on my arm.  It is a deep plum with red-violet particles.  The only way I could show you it's pretty purpleness was to show you on my eye.  I found it really tough to accurately portray the colors across my arm...one half would be accurate and the other a little less so....but the colors are really a great mix and apply easily.   They last all day for me over concealer on the eye.  I got into a zone for awhile where this palette was all I wanted to wear.  (My flash washed out my look just a little - it was more vibrant in person.)


I had so many questions about the comparison to ABH that I posted some pictures of them together on my Instagram.

You can see that many shades are similar but there are marked differences.  The red toned colors in the Anastasia palette are much cooler and more pink toned.  The New-Trals vs Neutrals palette has warmer tones in the red and oranges, which also all have shimmer whereas the pinks and orange in the ABH are all matte.

Here are swatches of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette.


The Modern Renaissance palette is more powdery but also more pigmented.  It has 14 shades, a two ended brush, and a total of .28 oz. of product for $45.  It doesn't have a very deep shade to finish off the outer eye, if you prefer those to do so.  

The Makeup Revolution palette has 16 shades, a total weight of .56 oz. and retails for $12.  It is both a good working alternative to the ABH as well as a good addition to your palette wardrobe if you already have the Anastasia.  I can't see any reason not to have both if you already have the Modern Renaissance, which came out first.   For me, this palette fills a color gap I had and it's very affordable.  It also has the addition of the danged gorgeous purple to bring the darkness you might wish to your eye.  Both companies are cruelty-free.

My suggestion would be to hit up Ulta and check out this palette.  They often have BOGO1/2 sales in this brand as well, plus coupons for money off drugstore items.  I'm really impressed with this brand and am excited to share it with you.  They honestly have something for everyone and their Affirmation is one of my top eyeshadow palettes of 2016.

I want to be sure to tell you that this is a nice stand alone palette.  I did the comparison because I had so many requests, but it doesn't need to be judged against ABH to realize it's value.  It's good in it's own right and makes an excellent addition to any collection.

I'm curious what you think about the similarities and differences and if this would be a good fit for you.  What is your favorite Makeup Revolution item?

Jesse's Girl Cosmetics Back Stage Collection Eye Shadow Palettes - Pics, Swatches, and Reviews


Today I am bringing you some eyeshadow palettes from the cruelty-free brand Jesse's Girl Cosmetics.  It's been nearly five years since I met Jesse and Julie G at their booth at Cosmoprof North America.  It's hard to believe it's been that long but what a blast that was.  Jesse is hilarious and Julie G is kind and warm and I just fell in love with her.  When the opportunity came to review the Sounds Of The City and the Natural Nudes Collection eyeshadow palettes, I jumped at the chance to work with them again.  Let's take a look.

The Natural Nudes Collection palette, ($6.99), has ten warm shades ranging from a very light beige to a deep brown.  The idea is that you can easily take this from day to night.  Just pop it in your purse and you're ready to go anytime.  It works from home to office to a night out and is travel friendly.  When I gave a first glance on my social media channels, people were dying to see it swatched and reviewed.  You can see why.


Isn't it pretty?  It weighs 13 grams so it won't add bulk to your carry-on bag or your purse or backpack.  It's got a nice ten pan selection of nudes...and hello, aren't we all just drawn to that amber in the top row?  Yaaaaaaas!!

It swatches nicely.  Because it is a nude palette, you're sure to find one of the colors will match your skintone and the bottom, second from the left, matched mine.  However with a primer, you can enjoy any of the colors.  Here is the top row in full on sun:


And inside my house:


And the bottom row:


And all together.


I've been wearing both palettes a lot over the past couple of weeks to get a feel for them so that I can give you my analysis.  Somehow during that time, I didn't get a picture.  I sent a lot of pictures to Snapchat but only saved one dorky picture from Snap...if you want to see it.  I was trying out the Jesse's Girl matte liquid lipstick in the color Angelic.  It's a beautiful coral rose.  These are one of my top three favorite liquid lipstick formulas.  It's lightweight when you apply it and yet is very long lasting.  Super comfortable to wear and not drying whatsoever.   They are just $3.99 each and I'm going to need every color!!


The other Back Stage Collection shadow palette is called Sounds Of The City.  I love that name.  I was ecstatic when I saw the cool toned nudes.  How often do you see a cool toned shadow palette anywhere anymore, especially one with nudes?!?!?


Again, you can take this palette from easy daytime to dramatic evening, and I've done so.  For my skintone, the three shades on the top row that look similar...they show up similar on my eyes as well.  For my personal coloring, more variation of these shades might make the palette a little better for me but at $6.99, I'm not complaining!!!  I'm getting several looks that I can wear.



To me, the matte shades on the bottom of the palette have a stronger payoff than in the Natural Nudes Collection.  Aren't these fun?  You can certainly mix and match the palettes...I haven't done so yet in order to keep my opinion of each pure and set on each particular palette.  I've worn this one a lot.

As a matter of fact, during the SAG Awards, I was observing the makeup trends and was playing around with a red carpet look.  I noted all the nude eyes that I saw.  It was like the Louvre...there were nudes everywhere!!!  So I grabbed the Sounds Of The City Collection to do the beige lids that I was seeing, and threw a little drama in the crease to satisfy my craving and this is what I came up with.


I'm having a lot of fun creating with these palettes.  They have medium pigmentation...not too light and not too heavy.  The colors are buildable.  I have to be careful with the Sounds Of The City Collection or I can make it too monotone on my skintone.  You just can't beat the bargain of this cruelty-free brand.

You can purchase Jesse's Girl Cosmetics at their website, Amazon.com, and Rite-Aid.  Don't overlook this brand.  They have some of my favorite nail polishes and lipglosses, too.  Be sure to keep up with them on social media on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, Pintrest and now on Snapchat as well.

What are your favorite items from Jesse's Girl Cosmetics?

Osmosis Skincare Watercolor Pigment Eyeshadows With Review and Swatches


If you're familiar with the brand Osmosis Pur Medical Skincare, you're probably most familiar with the items of skincare that they make. I'm currently testing some and I'm impressed so far! You may not know that Osmosis also has makeup products. What I have for you today are two of the Watercolors, a loose type of eyeshadow that is vastly different than any others you've used.  I hope this post can convey the differences accurately and the superiority of this products.


On the left you will see Onyx and the right is Pink Champagne, (0.075 oz ea.).  And you can see that the properties of the shadow accurately describe their names.



I think I'll just tell you right now that these are by far the best loose pigment makeup I've ever used.  I've used several brands of loose shadows, starting with Mac pigments.  When I started doing makeup, access to different brands, formulations and colors was fairly limited, so I used a lot of pigments and loose makeup to get what I needed.  In the last few years,  I gradually got away from them when the ease of pressed shadows from every internet nook and cranny satisfied my color cravings.

I didn't expect to love the Osmosis.  I assumed they'd be messy and like any other pigment I've used.  Not.  Sooooo not!!  I'll stop my story right here so that you can look at swatches...mean, right...?


When you move and the light hits different facets of the color, the shimmer will show either more or less.  They have multi-faceted color vallues.  They are superb.



The first time I used these, I held my breath and steadied my hands, expecting a Mac-like experience.  The formulation seemed somewhat different...they feel hydrating to the touch.  The company claims that they are a hydrating eye formula offering a radient glimmer to the lids without creasing.  I can tell you this is TRUE.  I've had zero creasing with these shadows which are infused with green tea, vitamins A, C and E, and goji berry.

More importantly, I've had zero fall-out from them, whether we're talking about dipping into the pot with a brush, applying the shades or wearing throughout the day.  I've had NO fallout!!!  And here's the other thing, I just slapped them on, without any special glitter primer or anything like that.  They wore really really well.  And I have had no fall out.  How is that even possible?


In the picture above, I'm not all dolled up or anything but this was my first run of the shadows.  And I took more pictures when I got home after running around all evening, probably five hours later.




I find the wear really impressive.  That's the Pink Champagne in the inner eye and Onyx at the outside.

Another time, I tested the shadows while going to see zoo lights.  Again, I had no fallout applying or later after we got home.  It's simply amazing.  AND...these are by far the best loose shadows I've ever used.  I wish we had feel-o-vision so you could feel the texture.  It's really cool.


Bottom line is the Osmosis Water Colors are the best loose makeup I've ever used.  I've said this 40 times already but you have to understand how impressive it has to have had no fallout in application or during wear.  And NO creasing!!  I'm truly amazed at this product.  Of course I want all the colors now, lol.  They are really terrific!!!

You can follow Osmosis on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram and you can read all kind of useful information on their blog.  Osmosis is available for purchase on HERE.

I'm going to leave you with my smoldering look....and ask....


...do you have a favorite loose shadow you'd like to tell me about, brand, color or both?
