Juvia’s Place The Saharan Palette – 6 Makeup looks!

Anyway, these are the looks I came up with for this palette. Hope you like them!

As usual with these Juvia’s Place palettes I have a hard time putting them down to continue working on the next palette. The quality of the shadows and the fun colors always make them so enjoyable to work with. Especially Chad, the matte black, impressed me. I have plenty of blacks in my collection, but great black are hard to come by. This one may even rival the black in Anastasia Prism.

There will be a full review of this palette in a couple of days, so remember to find me on Bloglovin and Instagram to stay updated on my recent posts.

Colourpop No Filter Line – Collective Review Of The Whole Selection!

As of now there are four products in the Colourpop No Filter line; A foundation, a pressed powder, a loose powder and a concealer. The concealer has been around for a while, but the rest were released together in a release in June 2018.

IMG_20180826_115840_396.jpg

I figured instead of doing a review one by one I would do them together all in one post!
Colourpop No Filter Foundation: I was supposed to write this collective review a very long time ago, but the reason for it being late is this foundation. Because I can’t quite figure out if I like it or not. But I guess that after trying and wearing it around 10 times, and still not really knowing what to feel it is safe so say that I am not wowed by it. If loved it I would have known by now.

IMG_20180826_120003_569.jpg

Still, it’s not so obviously bad that I can write a poor review either. It lingers somewhere in the middle. On some days I feel like I am happy with it, and on others it lays too much on top of my skin and looks too obvious. It also seems to cling to dry patches, which makes it a product not everyone will like.

It claims to be a buildable high coverage with a blurring effect and a soft matte finish. I guess I agree with the finish, and it does feel light weight on the skin, but if I build it up it just does not look that nice. Medium coverage is OK, but I feel that if I were to build it up further it would look very unflattering at least on my skin type. I feel like unless it’s put on in a very thin layer you get a very obvious foundation-face. It kind of lays on top of the skin.

The longevity is also somewhere in the middle, more like a regular BB Cream and I guess I would prefer a better staying power from a matte high coverage foundation. It is a bit too obvious when it fades.

I should be able to finish this bottle, because in works on days where my skin is nice, and I don’t need to wear foundation for too many hours, but unless I really change my mind about this I don’t think it’s worth repurchasing for 12$ simply because I have so many foundations I would reach for over this. But hey, maybe it will work better during winter time?
Colourpop No Filter Setting Powder: This loose setting powder has already been featured in my July favorites. So I guess you know I like it.

IMG_20180826_120033_139.jpg

The powder is really fine milled and work both for setting the under eye, baking (I don’t like to bake, but I tried and it works) or you can just set your whole face with it which is my favorite way of using it.

The container is quite small, but still holds 8.5 g which should last you a while. For 9$ it’s not the cheapest of powders, but it’s still fairly affordable and very good!

I highly recommend this and I can see myself repurchasing this when I run out.

Colourpop Sheer Matte Pressed Powder: This pressed powder has 6 different shades to pick from, which I find to be fairly OK considering it’s a sheer mattifying powder. It’s also affordable and all that, but absolutely not worth picking up in my opinion. This is a horrible product. It’s so bad that I am starting to wonder if I got a bad one. That something went wrong during manufacturing. Because how could this powder pass any kind of quality control?

IMG_20180826_120113_448.jpg

The problem with this powder is not how it looks on the skin. I mean, it looks fine. Nothing like how my Charlotte Tilbury powder would do, but you know, decent considering the price.

The problem is that this powder gets hard pan so quickly! I am a bit puzzled because I almost NEVER get hard pan. I threw away a Mac shadow with hard pan that was reaching 15 years old, but other than that I can’t remember getting hard pan on anything. But after three times use I could not get any product on my brush any more.

So I scraped off the top layer, and reached fresh usable powder and continued using it. Again after about 4 times the product is impossible to pick up in the brush. Even when digging the brush really hard in there.

I was thinking this just did not work together with my skin, so I decided to do a test. I scraped off the hard layer on top once more, then I took a clean brush and dabbed it in the product, without touching my face with it. After I had done that for approximately the same amount of time I would need to powder my face a few times I took my finger and swiped it over the product. It had a completely hard surface again and no powder was transferred to my finger. Keep in mind that this happened just from dabbing a completely clean and dry brush in the powder, so it’s not because it does not agree with my skin, or that oil are transferred from my skin to the powder through my brush. It happened still with me not putting my face into it so to speak. if this is a usual problem with this powder I can’t be the only one to notice, so if you have any experience with these please let me know in the comments what you think!

If you could not tell, this was a total flop for me!

Colourpop No Filter Concealer: This was the first face base product they released, and it was a long time before we saw anything of the foundation and powders. This one I really do like!

IMG_20180826_115905_870.jpg

The formula is super light weight and easy to blend and gives a good medium coverage I would say. I know many people have been complaining about it oxidizing, and I do also see that it does oxidize slightly, it’s not so much so that I find it to be a problem.

The applicator has a very bendy wand, that I found very strange to begin with, but now I love it. It’s actually so precise that I can use this concealer alone to cut my crease. I don’t have to go in with a brush to tidy up the edges, because usually it works just fine with just the wand.

I also really like how it looks under my eyes. It does crease just to begin with, but after setting it with powder it stays in place without creasing.

This concealer I am close to run out of, and I will replace it very soon. So this is definitely a repurchase item for me. The same with the No Filter Setting Powder. The foundation I will finish and leave it at that, the pressed powder is very likely to hit the trash-bin sometime soon unless I figure out a clever way of using it.

Overall, two hits and two shits for me. How about you? Did you try any of these products? What do you think?

Let’s Talk Some Trash Again!

As usually when I refer to trash talk, I mean actual trash, more specific makeup and beauty trash. Once again I have a small pile of products to go through with you. I had a goal to reach 200 empties this year, and that’s why I’ve been numbering them but I think that goal may have been a bit too high. I am not going to try to use products faster just to reach it either. That would just be waistful.

IMG_20180923_185758_696.jpg

So these are the products we will go through today. Do you spot anything you like?

IMG_20180923_190910_653.jpg

#121 Batiste Dry Shampoo Tropical – I really like Batiste dry shampoos. they really do get the job done, and in the mean time they give some texture and volume to your hair. The downside with this one is that it does leave a white cast in my dark brown hair. I do prefer the ones for brunettes, and I will pick that one up soon!

#122 Yves Rocher Velvet Shower Cream “Coffee Beans” – This really just smell like freshly ground coffee beans in a sweet way. The scent is absolutely divine! I will absolutely get another one of these next time I decide to do and Yves Rocher order (which is unfortunately not that often, but I should consider making one soon). I think this is my 4th or 5th bottle of this!

IMG_20180923_185824_372.jpg

#123 Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask – I bet you have heard all the rave about this many times before. I did like it. It felt very moisturizing. I may pick this one up again. The only drawback is that I can’t get this in store where I live, but I have access to plenty of other ones in store. Chances are I am more likely to pick up something that is more available, but absolutely a good product though!

#124 Eylure Lash Glue – The glue itself works well enough. But the tube looks absolutely disgusting after a short times use and I considered binning it half way. I made it through, mostly because I was too lazy to pick up another lash glue.

#125 Maybelline Master Drama Kohl Pencil “Ultra Black” – This one is mentioned in a huge amount of product lists underneath my makeup look pictures. This is my go-to when I need a black eyeliner. I already have a new one opened. This is one of my holy grails that I need on hand at all times!

IMG_20180923_185900_797.jpg

#126 Haus of Gloi Pumpkin Butter “Zazz” – This is so good! Like all the pumpkin butters are. If you haven’t tried them already you are missing out! This one smells like sparkling champagne and frizzy sweets. It’s so strange but it smells exactly like that to me. Very sparkly, summery fresh and sweet at the same time. This scent makes me happy!

#127 Haus Of Gloi Pumpking Butter “Twice is Nice” – Same goes for this one, the lotion is just lovely. The scent is lovely too, and I’ve been trough many jars of this exact one. It’s also sweet like the previous, but richer and deeper with tones of coconut, sugar cookie and almonds.

#128 Dove Summer Revived Gradual Tanning Lotion – I’ve talked about this before. I picked up to less than four of them on sale believing they were normal lotions (note to self; look at what you are buying!). When I started getting a weird orange hue to my skin I realized it was a gradual tanner. But the color is orange and it fades awfully patchy. After one or two days the color is almost not visible though. So I was able to finish it by just using it a bit here and there and it didn’t really give me any color after one use. I will not buy this one again though!

Did you finish anything fun lately? Or have you maybe tried any of these products? What are your thought on them?

Zoeava Eyesee Eyeshadow Palette – Review & Swatches!

I currently have 16 (yes, that’s right!) eyeshadow palettes by Zoeva in my collection, and the number would obviously not be that high if I didn’t like these palettes overall. They are also super handy to collect because they are slim and easy to store, don’t take up much space and they are affordable. I am a huge fan of affordable but good makeup. Even though I know to appreciate and treasure my high end and luxury items nothing beats good and affordable to me!

IMG_20181010_110556_778.jpg

The packaging of this one is beautiful. It’s their usual slim cardboard packaging with no mirror, but it’s nicely decorated with gold details on a nude background. The inside is similar with the same colors and beautiful gold details. It’s simply just so pretty to look at!

IMG_20181010_110820_260.jpg

Inside you get a selection of 10 eyeshadows in regular sized pans. Nine of the shadows holds 1.7 g and one holds 1.3 g. There is a variety of different formulas on here. One matte, some shimmers, satins and metallics and two quite chunky glittery shades.

The matte is a typical base shade, and the formula is rich and creamy. All of the shades have decent pigmentation, with the exception of “Images are Soulmates” (last one on bottom row) which was a bit more sheer than expected. The three darker shades (last on in the top row and the two last in the bottom row) are more of a satin finish. They have a nice sheen to them but are not as rich as intense in shine as a true metallic would be. The formula makes these darker shades quite easy to work with, but since they are not too shimmery you can easily use them as crease shades too. I managed to get quite a nice intensity on them with a damp brush, but they also give off quite a bit of kickback in the pan. It’s a bit like they smolder apart a bit. Some of the shades, especially the blue and the green had some fallout, now I am very sloppy and never kick off my brush, but still I think I got more fallout than usual with these.

IMG_20181010_103642_487.jpg

The red “Through The Lens” is also slightly more sheer than it looks in the pan. It does not mean they are not pigmented because they are, they are just a tad more sheer on the eyes than they look in the pan on first swipe but they can be built up, preferably with a  damp brush, unless you want it in the crease. Because, also this one works fine as a crease shade despite not being matte.

The most surprising shades in this palette are the shades “Unforgettable Contrast” and “Mechanical Eye” which are the two chunkier glitter shades. I am usually not a big fan of glitter formula shades but these two surprised me. Despite having a bit chunkier glitter they are so super smooth and rich. They are quite loosely pressed compared to the rest, probably due to the glitter, but that may be why they are so nice and smooth. It does make them a bit waits-full though. I don’t think I’ve ever experienced a glittery shade like this that feels like butter though. They are so nice! But again, not a shadow that will last you very long with consecutive use.

IMG_20181010_110655_574.jpg

The least impressive shade was “Visual System”. I have a bit of trouble to decide what formula this actually is. Its something between a satin and a matte but with very fine glitter. I found this to be a tiny bit on the chalky side, and it did not looks as great on the eyes as I wanted to. It does not give much of a sheen to the eye and looks just a bit off to me.

The rest of the shades in the palette I really enjoy the quality of, but as mentioned the most impressive ones are the glitter shades (Didn’t think I would ever say that since I usually can’t stand glitter shades, but hey, I love being surprised!).

IMG_20181010_110846_625.jpg

But let’s talk color composition. I know not every palette has to be a stand alone palette (I have enough of my basics covered anyways) , and I did already post a blog post with 4 looks created with this palette only, so you can definitely use this on it’s own, especially since the darker satin shades work well on the crease. I do however wish that the only matte shade would be a nice crease shade instead of the base shades. Firstly because I don’t think it’s necessary to set the base when you work with glitters or shimmers which is the majority of the shades in the palette, and secondly because I kind of wanted a mid-toned matte to match the glitter shades for a more nude look, instead of using the blue, red or purples. I think those glitter shades would look absolutely stunning with a warm brown in the crease, or maybe a maroon or a red toned brown would be really great to compliment the pink,red and deep purple shades. So I kind of wish that they had switched that shade with something else. Other than that you get a really nice selection of many different fun colors and I really appreciate that. If you can live with the fact that you may want to have a buddy palette with some basic shades to pair with this one, then I think the color story is both fun and something we don’t see every day.

IMG_20181010_110746_929.jpg

Even though it’s both pretty and fun it won’t be my favorite Zoeva palette. The list of cons were just too long compared to many of my other Zoeva palettes where I for the most part like every shade.

You can for sure create nice looks with it, so you can for sure make the shades work, but the quality is just not as great as it is with many of the other palettes I would recommend instead of this one.

I don’t have regrets buying this myself, I really did like those glitter shades and after all the palette is quite affordable, but the overall impression of this palette is unfortunately not more than average. You can make it work for sure, and the colors are beautiful, but I know Zoeva can do better than this.

Did you try this palette? Do we share opinions about it or did it work better for you?

Makeup Favorites – September 2018!

One of my very favorite posts to write is these where I can share my favorites with you. I know I have also said that one of my favorite post to write are haul posts, empties post, makeup looks and reviews as well. It’s all true though, I guess it just means I like to share this stuff in general.

IMG_20181008_210203_613.jpg

But the reason why writing favorites posts are so fun is because when I find something I really like and use over and over again I feel like my fellow makeup lovers need to know about them! So this is the makeup products you need to know about this month.

IMG_20181008_210419_368.jpg

Mac Extra Dimension Skinfinish “Whisper Of Gilt”. I have already written a raving review of this iconic product and I guess I don’t have to go in depth about it. You can read the full review here. I just could not put this down this month. I used it almost every day with just a few days in exception. It gives a beautiful pale golden metallic sheen. I am a bit sad to take this out of my everyday makeup bag and put it in my drawer, but I need to give my other highlighters some attention too. This is a great one though!

IMG_20181008_210355_631.jpg

The Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup (why is it called makeup and not foundation? I am confused) is a beautiful very long lasting foundation. I am impressed by how long lasting it is in fact. It has good coverage while still being light weight. This just does not budge on me throughout the day. Unfortunately the shade I have “Shell Beige” is only suitable for me when I am very tan (in hat world am I shell beige? what was I thinking?). I would love to pick up this in a lighter color because I want to use it more often than just those three weeks I am tan enough!

Guerlain Les Voilettes Translucent Loose Powder Mattifying Veil is the finest most light weight powder you can imagine. As you can see the packaging is quite messy. The puff is under the lid, but it has to stay there in order to keep powder from leaking out of the wholes and create a dust-cloud every time you open. So the puff looks disgusting, but the powder inside is really amazing, and the packaging do look pretty (before you open it that is!). This powder has that classic Guerlain scent. It smells like old fancy lady, but I like it. In fact my inner 80-year-ol lady is thrilled. If you want a light weight translucent powder that is mattifying (and expensive) this was a big hit for me at least!

IMG_20181008_210252_920.jpg

Juvia’s Place Saharan II Eyeshadow Palette is the palette of the month for sure. I have been loving using this while preparing for it’s review, but it has also been the one I’ve been reaching for the most besides the palettes in my everyday makeup bag. I would say I used this 2-3 times every week through September which is pretty good for me. It’s just something about these gorgeous metallics and warm rich brown and red crease shades that makes me so happy. And the quality of Juvia’s Place palettes are amazing off course!

IMG_20181008_210316_009.jpg

Off course I have some listick goodies as well!

Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks has been my favorite dry-down liquid lipstick formula for a while, and the shade “Celebrity Skin” is a nice everyday nude. Everyday nudes are off course what I reach for the most, and I don’t mind it being light weight and lasting all day either!

Colourpop Ultra Blotted Lip is a formula I don’t have very many of, but that I really really like. I love the soft blurred out effect it gives my lips. They are not as long lasting as their Ultra Matte or Ultra Satin lips, but they fade away very nicely so it does not really matter if you don’t have time to do touch-ups, you can just refresh it when you want and not worry too much. This is the shade “Soda Pop” which is a nice MLBB color.

H&M Creme Lipsticks are so underrated. These lipsticks are so good and comfy. It does not at all feel like a cheap lipstick. The packaging feels cheap, but the product is so nice and luxurious it might as well be a high end product. The formula on these are just amazing and I can’t belive not more people talk about them, This is the shade “Cream Chestnut” but I am absolutely getting more shades!

IMG_20181008_210452_611.jpg

Lastly the Sleek Distorted Dreams Highlighter Palette. This one has two powder highlighters and three cream highlighters in quite interesting and bold colors. At first I actually had my regrets buying this. The powders where not that good, and the cream highlighters have quite a lot of glitter. But I started using this in the inner corner with more bold looks, and for that purpose these looks absolutely stunning. Especially the blue will give an out-of-this-world inner corner glow to blue looks. As you can probably tell, I suddenly used this quite a lot, and as for now these are my go-to highlighters for colorful looks! Plus it’s in a neat, small packaging.

And that’s it for this months favorites! What have you been loving this month? Do we have any favorites in common, or is it something here among my favorites that you just can’t stand? Let me know! I always love hearing your opinions about products, and it’s so interesting getting different views!

I was so excited when Zoeva released this gorgeous piece of a palette. I have been collecting their 10-pan palettes for a while because they are so slim and easy to store, and the quality is also really good.

Pictures don’t do this palette justice though, because it is so much more stunning in real life. My phone camera is not at all able to pick up how pretty some of these shades look, but I gave it a try, and I came up with these 4 looks, and I really hope you enjoy them!

My latest empties!

Time for yet another empties post. These are so much fun to make because it give me an opportunity to write about my experience of all the products I’ve finished. So these are the latest ones!

IMG_20180923_190934_716.jpg

This time we have a good mixture of old favorites, holy grail product and a few things that just did not work for me.

IMG_20180923_191022_602.jpg

#114 Prettysmooth Intensive Body Moisturiser Aloe Vera: I am always on the hunt for good but affordable body lotions because I go through them so quickly. So I decided to pick this up because it cost very little, and I usually like the mild scent of aloe vera in body lotions. This one was just OK. I felt like it was maybe a bit less moisturizing than what I prefer so I probably won’t pick up this again. On the other hand it was absorbed quickly into the skin and felt nice, so if you are not in that much need of a heavy skin moisturizer this may be just good enough for you. Personally I will probably reach for something else next time I am shopping. Not bad, just not what I am looking for.

#115 Redken Frizz Dismiss Smooth Force Leave-In Spray: I don’t know how may bottles of this one I’ve picked up so far, but you have probably seen this up to several times if you have been reading some of my other empties post. This is a holy grail and it does wonder to keep my curls unfrizzed but still not being too heavy. Perfect for everyday use. I already have a new bottle opened and a backup in the mail. I need to have a bottle of this at any time. Big big favorite!

IMG_20180923_191145_476.jpg

#116  LUSH American Pie Shower Jelly: This was kind of an error. I love the American Cream conditioner from LUSH, and I thought this was a shower gel with the same scent. It does have the same delicious scent, but this is one of their shower jellys. I find it a bit clumsy to deal with compared to a liquid shower gel. I love the scent, and it gets the job done, but it’s just not my favorite way of using soap. I don’t even like to eat jelly that much.

#117 House Of Gloi Pumpkin Butter – Insalata Nocturna: Off course I love this one. I have an army of House Of Gloi Pumpkin Butters in my bathroom and this scent has been a long time favorite. I have a small stash of this scent since it’ limited too their summer scent collection. I have been loving these pumpkin butters since the first time I tried them back in 2012 I believe. I will always always keep buying these.

#118 ELF eyebrow pencil – This one was a miss. Really waxy and not so pigmented. The packaging is flimsy and cheap and the cap covering the spoolie broke in no time. Will not repurchase.

#119 Rituals The Ritual of Dao Body Cream – The body cream form Rituals are really nice. The packaging is big and luxurious and the cream itself gives a lot of moisture without being sticky. It sinks into the skin nicely. Just a great quality cream. The scent is nice and fresh. I may repurchase this one, I will definitely repurchase this cream in other scents (Happy Buddah is my favorite).

#120 Rituals The Ritual of Dao Foaming Shower Gel – I love these shower gels form Rituals. I have two other scents standing in my shower as we speak. It gives such a nice luxurious foam. The only downside is that they run out fairly quickly. I will for sure pick up these again, but maybe not this scent. Not because I don’t like this one. It’s simply because I like some of the other scents more.

I don’t know if I have mentioned it, but I had kind of set me a goal to finish 200 products this year. I feel like I go through products quickly, and I feel like I always am a bit behind on writing these post because I constantly have a small pile of empties laying around. Still I am not sure if I will make it. But all hope is not out and I still have a few more months left to try and reach my goal.

Did you finish anything fun lately?

XOXO

Mufavorites!
