What’s In My Makeup Bag – April 2019!

New month means new makeup bag! I am always excited to have a new set of items to play with at the beginning of every month. I am a bit indecisive about what to do in the future though. The reason is that I started doing these monthly makeup bags because I run to work every morning. 5 kilometers each way, and then I get ready at work and need some stuff there. In April when we move things will be a bit different. I will have a 30 minutes drive by car to get to work from our new house. That means I will be getting ready at home. I will also have space to make a proper makeup room with a vanity and all, so i don’t know what I will be doing regarding rotating my makeup. Maybe I will just pick and choose every morning. Or maybe I will switch up the content of my daily makeup bag more often and there won’t be any monthly makeup bag to show off. Being able to rotate through my entire collection does indeed sound a bit tempting so I am not entirely sure what to do. Maybe this will be the last “What’s In My Makeup Bag” post. Let me know if you have any suggestions below!

Anyways, let’s talk about the picks I did for April!

IMG_20190402_160343_005.jpg

  • A’Pieu Natural BB Cream: This one has both good coverage and a matte finish. I would say that’s quite rare for a BB Cream, but I really like it! My plan is to try to mix if with the Colourpop one, because I figured I don’t love it and mixing it with this BB Crema could be my way of using it up (and I have to do that since it’s in my project pan!).
  • Colourpop No Filter Foundation: Speaking about the Colourpop foundation. I don’t really like it. It took me a looong time to figure it out. It looks nice to start with but it does not wear well on my. After 5-6 hours it looks pretty rough. I am hoping mixing it with A’Pieu will help.
  • Smashbox Primer Oil: This one I really like! I usually have pretty normal skin, but something has been off lately, and it turned pretty dry. I am hoping this will give the moisture I need and help the foundation sit better.
  • Maybelline Master Fix Setting + Perfecting Loose Powder: This one is new! I have never used it! But I am planning on using it to set my concealer, since a reagular pressed powder easily can look a bit too heavy. I am 32 years old and I don’t need help looking older, so a fine milled loose powder it is!
  • Lancôme Poudre Majeure Excellence: A project pan powder I will put in my bag for another rotation. I like it, but I don’t like it enough to repurchase once it’s gone. Because it’s expensive.

IMG_20190402_160416_016.jpg

Look at all the highlighter and blush goodies I will play with! So excited!

  • Makeup Revolution Jelly Highlighter – Monumental: I love this. Enough said!
  • Kiko Flawless Fusion Bronzer Powder: This is also in my project pan! It’s just perfect for me when I am winter pale! And so easy to use.
  • Revolution Pro Supreme Highlighter – Ice: This one is new, but I already have another one in another color that is incredible. These shades are more suited for me during winter. I hope the formula is the same as the other one because then I know I will love it.
  • Revolution Pro Skin Finish – Luminesence: Can be a very subtle highlighter or dusted all over the face for a natural radiant glow. It reminds me a lot of the Hourglass powder everyone loves.
  • L’Oreal Glow Mon Amour: I decided to put this in my makeup bag because I just happened to try to use this as a primer under a matte foundation the other day. And I absolutely loved the result! So I want to do that many times over again.
  • The Balm Balm Springs Blush: I adore The Balm blushes. This is a nice neutral shade that will go with anything.
  • YSL Creme De Blush: A beautiful cream blush. I have this in two colors and they have both been beloved favorites for many years. It deserves a month in my makeup bag.
  • MAC Extra Dimension Blush – Faux Sure!: This color look completely different than in the pan. On my skin it’s a soft coral peach with a really nice glow. It was a birthday present from my sister and I want to show it some love this month.
  • L’Oreal Life Is a Peach Blush: Because I also need a matte peachy blush.

IMG_20190402_160445_073.jpg

  • MAC Pigment – Copper Sparkle: This is a good old one. I want to try to use my single eyeshadows and pigments more (I always do) so I decided to pull it in. It will go nicely with the palette I picked too.
  • MAC Pigment – Vanilla: This one is such a classic! Pulling it in my bag for the same reason as Copper Sparkle.
  • MAC Plushglass – Fashion Fanatic: This one is almost gone! I am going to try to finish it this month!
  • MAC Plushglass – Girl Loves Boy: Another project pan gloss I will continue to work on.
  • MAC Plushglass – I Love You: Also another project pan gloss I will continue to work on.
  • NYX Powder Puff Lippie – Squad Goals: A favorite from NYX! It’s been a while since I used it so time to do that again.
  • Maybelline Snapscara: The new mascara from Maybelline. I haven’t even tried it. I am hoping after one month I have tested and tried it enough to write a review about it.
  • Sephora Jumbo Liner – White: This is sooo old. And I never use it. I will try this month though.

IMG_20190402_160545_997.jpg

These are the eyeshadows I will play with. One palette, and one Z-palette with 9 self picked shades from Colourpop and Looxie. The palette I am sure you recognized as Tarte Tartelette Toasted. It’s in my project pan and now I am pulling it in to get some damage done!

And I almost forgot to show of the concealer I will be using so I sneaked it in the last picture with the palettes. It’s off course Maybelline FitMe Concealer.

That’s all for this month. Please let me know how you think I should proceed with these posts in the future. Should I continue with my monthly makeup basket or do something else? I could for instance just pick from my collection and my the end of the month do a roundup of the products I used and what I think of them like mini mini reviews. Decisions are hard, any input would help!

Colourpop X Kathleen Lights Zodiac Palette – Review & Swatches!

Once again Kathleen Lights and Colourpop teamed up to make a palette. I already own and love the previous collab the Dream.St palette so I was excited to see this launch. I was also excited to see a lot of different colors to play with. I love my neutrals, but I honestly have to say I do get a bit more intrigues with fun, bright colors.

IMG_20181212_155318_416.jpg

The packaging on this palette is absolutely stunning. Visually more pleasing than the standard Colourpop palette due to it’s level of detail. The design is much more detailed with the golden zodiac prints on dark blue background. This palette is one of their regular 12-pan palettes (my preferred size actually) with no mirror.

IMG_20181212_155219_059.jpg

You get a variety of different finishes. 4 are true mattes, among them a light brown a darker brown a berry and a mid-toned blue. This gives a very nice variety of different crease shades. You also got “The Libra” which is a pale satin pink, and “The Capricorn”, a dark blackened brown with gold glitter flecks. In danger of repeating myself, I don’t like matte bases with glitter. The 6 remaining colors are of the gorgeous metallic formula that I absolutely love. “The Pisces” are slightly more chunky than the regular smooth metallic formula due to the glitter. This is the shades of my Zodiac sign, and I have to say the interpretation of Pisces are good because I love shades like this. The shades I am most drawn to are blues like this, or shimmery greens. So I am happy about that choice!

IMG_20181212_155149_034.jpg

If you have been reading a bit here and there on my blog you may have stumbled upon a Colourpop eyeshadow palette review here and there. The general verdict is the same, these are great palettes! There are a few duds here and there, but overall the metallic formula is fantastic and so is the mattes. In this palette I am for the most part happy. Almost every shades is the great Colourpop quality I am used too. One exception is “The Aquarius”. I was not quite happy with the pigmentation on this, because it needed to be built up much more than what I am used to with Colourpop mattes. I also have a similar single pan which works much better, so I don’t think this shade is as good as it could be. Also the shade “The Libra” is a bit underwhelming to me. On my skin it’s too pale and doesn’t really show up that well. Since it’s a satin finish it does not really work as an highlight either because it’s too dull. And yes, you all know my issue with matte bases with glitter two.

IMG_20181212_155249_784.jpg

But besides those minor issues (that are partly based of preferance) this palette well worth having. The 9 shades that I don’t have any issues with are more that good, so they improve the overall quality of the palette.

The color story of the palette is pleasing, and I really like that you get a lot of colors alongside a few pops of neutral. It does make the palette very versatile, and you can use this if you want to keep it very toned down or if you want to create a fun colorful looks. The palette works well both ways.

And for the wallet friendly price of 16$ you do get a good quality shadows for your precious pennies.

Do you have the Zodiac palette? What is your favorite shade in the palette? Does in match with your zodiac sign?

My favorite shade in 10 palettes….and the least favorite as well!

I have seen a few YouTube videos floating around where people talk about the favorite shade in each of the palettes they picked out for the task. I have seen plenty of these by now, but Angelica Nyquist (her YouTube channel is amazing, especially if you like indie brands and colors) was the one who inspired me to finally do one myself, blogging style!

Now, this is not a video off course, and I decided to do a twist on it too. I picked out 10 different palettes from my collection and then I chose one favorite shade, and also the shade I like the least. Even though I did pick a least favorite shade from each palette, it does not mean that the shade is bad. I mean if the whole palette is good then also my least favorite shade will be good as well. But I could find a shade in each palette that I for some reason were not particularly drawn to, even though it was a bit hard at times.

IMG_20180902_145522_460.jpg

If you like this post and would like to see more of them, than let me know! I got plenty of palettes and could do several posts like this (It frightens me a bit to realize how many of these I could actually make without repeating any palettes). That means if you want to see them off course. They take way to much time to make if no one is interested, so let me know in the comments if you would like to see more (I am not getting insulted if you don’t, I promise).

IMG_20180902_145548_080.jpg

So this is how it will go: I will go through my pile of selected palettes and do a finger swatch of both my favorite and least favorite shade and explain why I chose them. In the end I will swatch all of my ten favorites together on my arm, and all of my least favorites in another swatch. Just to see how they look together, because why not!?

Let’s play!

IMG_20180902_133036_035.jpg

The first palette is Dominique Cosmetics Latte palette. Their first launch. If you have any further interest in this palette then you can check out my full review here or you can have a look at the 6 different makeup looks I did with it here.

IMG_20180902_133214_261.jpg

My favorite shade is Macchiato (left). It is such a gorgeous shimmer that goes so well with many looks. A simple but stunning shade. It also have a very nice and rich glow to it.

My least favorite is Double Shot (right). Not because it’s a bad shade. It’s actually a quite good matte purple. I am just not as drawn to that shade as the rest so when I had to pick one it’s this. Nothing bad with it really, just personal preference.

IMG_20180902_133241_406.jpg

The Tarte Tartelette Toasted is a very pretty warm toned neutral palette. As you probably can tell I’ve gotten quite a bit of use out of it. I got a review of this one as well, and I also compared it to Colourpop Double Entendre in a dupe post if you are curious about a cheaper alternative.

IMG_20180902_133546_404.jpg

I picked the two shades “Flame” (left) as my favorite and “Crackle” (right) as my least favorite. Flame I picked because it’s such a beautiful, rich warm shimmery brown. The perfect lid color and it’s one of the shades that “makes the palette” in my opinion. Picking the least favorite shade was easy in this palette. I don’t really like eyeshadows that have a matte base and flecks of glitter. That’s exactly what Crackle is. It does look pretty in the pan, but that glitter disappears so quickly from the eyes that I can’t understand why it’s not just a regular, usable matte instead.

IMG_20180902_133610_608.jpg

 

These shades don’t have names, but luckily the shadows in the Tarina Tarantino Jewel eyeshadow palette are easy to tell apart just by describing the shades. I think this is quite a cool palette because no one seems to know about it but it’s absolutely beautiful. The packaging is almost a gem itself, and the eyeshadows are nice.

IMG_20181021_181411_679.jpg

The shimmery pastel mint to the right is off course my favorite, and the brown with a dark matte base and golden shimmer is the least favorite. I just don’t like these kind of shades regardless of how beautiful they look in the pan. They are just not for me. The green I really like though. These kind of greens are perfect for everyday looks in my opinion because they offer a bit of color without being too much “in-your-face” if that makes sense.

IMG_20180902_135344_683.jpg

The next palette will maybe surprise you. It is a limited edition palette by the Italian makeup brand Kiko. This Kiko Colour Impact Eyeshadow Palette 03 Bright Night Lights I picked up while on vacation in Italy maybe 5 years ago or so, and as a matter of fact I do keep my out of date palettes, and the secret is clean brushes and sanitizing spray.

IMG_20180902_135453_243.jpg

Again the shades do not have names, but they are still easy to tell apart. You may thing that the color I would be most drawn to was the sparkly green, and not the peach base shade, and in most cases you would be right, but this basic peach is actually very unique. It’s not a matte, but a silky soft pearl finish, and it’s something about the undertone in this shade that makes blue eyes really pop, and its a beautiful shade to wear on the lid. Very different from what I would usually prefer in a palette, but this shade is so unique!

My least favorite shade is the purple. Not only because I think it’s a bit boring, but also because is just does not work very well. It’s hard to blend and when using it in the outer corner it tends to be quite patchy. It’s also very dusty. Not a good shade really. So that’s why it’s my least favorite in this little palette.

IMG_20180902_135521_503.jpg

Next palette is a new one (or fairly new) from Colourpop namely their Mar palette from the summer collection. I bet you can already tell my favorites shade, especially if you read the review.

IMG_20180902_135557_097.jpg

Off course it’s “Grindlock” the blue center shade. It’s such a gorgeous deep blue shimmer with small flecks of glitter. Now, there are not any bad shades in this palette at all, so I just had to pick one, and that was “El Rev” the top pale peach. It’s a beautiful color as well and the quality is great, I just predict that this will be the least used shade in this palette and that’s why I chose this one. All shadows in this palette is stunning though!

IMG_20180902_135647_815.jpg

This is an old one! The Vegan palette by Urban Decay. do you remember when they used to release there small 6 shadow palettes with the eyeliner pencil included? The eyeliner pencil is long gone, but this palette has some of the well known classic shades from Urban Decay.

IMG_20180902_135720_450.jpg

My favorite shade is a cult classic “Half Baked”. This one is in the original Naked palette too, and is a nice brown toned gold shade. It used to be my go-to golden shade back in the days when my makeup selection was a lot smaller. Now I just keep this palette mainly for memories (or if I want to use it in a Throwback Thursday makeup look).

Gunmetal is my least favorite shade. The quality of the shadow is OK, but I am just not that into greys. I just rarely remember to use them. Kind of a shame that I don’t like it because I think I have four of them in different Urban Decay palettes. They used to love to add this shade to palettes.

IMG_20180902_135945_268.jpg

Isn’t it strange that even though Colourpop is one of the younger brands in my collection it’s still the one I have the most palettes from. Or maybe it’s not so weird when they release a palette every other week in addition to being cheep. Not complaining though. I do love them!

IMG_20180902_140011_009.jpg

My favorite shade is “Blank Canvas” the red matte in the bottom left corner. This is probably the shade that impressed me the most because I didn’t really expect to love it, but its such a rich and beautiful color that works so well and blends out so easy.

My least favorite shade is “Feels”, the one in the top left corner. It’s not just the shade I like the least, it’s actually a shade I don’t like much at all. The pigmentation or shine is just not how I want it and it appears a bit chunky on the eyes since it needs to be built up.

IMG_20180902_135747_317.jpg

And then, my beloved Certifeye Tropical Wonders palette. My go-to palette for every colorful looks I want to make. You can see it’s well used. I just want to sit down and do rainbow looks with this all day! It looks a bit beat up now doesn’t it? Well loved, that’s all.

IMG_20180902_135918_212.jpg

I love color so off course I love the majority of the shadows in this palette, but my very favorite must be “Fruit Fly”. It’s quite a unique shade and I can’t recall that I’ve ever encountered a shade like this with this amount of pigmentation. And the name is cute too!

My least favorite is Typhoon. Not a bad shade, but I mean, when you look at the rest of the palette a boring grey is not what you reach for right? Or at least I don’t. I am not sure why this shade is in this palette anyway. I don’t feel it’s the natural color to reach for considering the rest of the color selection. The grey works fine though, it’s just a big “grey” compared to the rest.

IMG_20180902_140034_323.jpg

The Caramel Melange palette, one of my favorites by Zoeva. These brown and golden shimmer shades look like liquid metal when swatched. This is easily among my top three Zoeva palettes (for reference I got 16 so that’s not bad at all!).

IMG_20180902_140111_347.jpg

My favorites was easy to pick. “Liquid Center” is just to rich, smooth, buttery, pigmented and everything good a shadow can be. Simply a delicious shade.

The least delicious shade is “Edible Gem”. I can’t stress enough that I don’t like matte based shadows with glitter in. I just don’t see the point in them as they usually just looks like a flat matte and the small specs of shimmer are either gone, or all over your face. So since this shade has that formula it’s the obvious choice.

IMG_20180902_145435_638.jpg

The final palette happens to be the favorite palette of one of my favorite brands. Juvia’s Place The Magic Palette. This is magic for sure, and the colors are so beautiful!

IMG_20180902_145458_663.jpg

It was so hard to pick a favorite shade. It could easily have been almost any one of the four on the bottom row, but I had to pick one in the end and I picked “Yara” but there are so many shades in this palette that are equally beautiful.

This is another one of those palettes with no bad shades, so I picked “Osun” just because pinks are never my favorite, but the quality is impeccable.

And now that we have picked all the favorite and least favorite shades in the palette I figured it would be fun to swatch them together and see what the color story looked like. So I did one arm with the “Bad” swatches, and one with the good ones to have a look.

IMG_20180902_194838_449.jpg

Let’s start with the bad ones. They are swatched in the same order as I presented the palettes. If this was a palette on it’s own I would for sure not buy it. Not just because the color story is not my thing, but I don’t thin I will ever buy a palette with three dark brown mattes with specks of golden glitter in them. Actually looking at this I am surprised by how often they appeared. But since the rest of the shades are purples, pinks and greys it’s easy to see what color stories I usually don’t go for.

IMG_20180902_194741_115.jpg

Swatches of the good shades are much more appealing. No surprise off course! It’s not the most cohesive color story, but at least they are all very pretty shades. I am not surprised at all that we find both green and blues. Those two shades are the ones I find hardest to resist. It’s almost always the colors I am drawn to in palettes. These swatches are just so much more appealing to me, but what do you think? If these were two palettes which one would you choose?

Do you have any of these palettes, and what would your favorite or least favorite shadows be?

Makeup and beauty hauls – September 2018!

One of my favorite posts to write. Showing you whats new to my collection and what you can expect seeing some reviews of in the future.

I have been picking up a few new bits and pieces but I think I managed to not go overboard, so I am quite happy!

These Hourglass powders I both ordered in August, but you know, international shipping knows how to take it’s time. But this travel size Hourglass Bronzer and the Hourglass Blush in “Ethereal Glow” finally arrived. I got mine from Cultbeauty. And do you know that they have travel size blushes there too? I think it’s such a great thing to be able to pick up a travel size of a blush for much cheaper. I never go through blushers anyway!

More stuff from Cultbeauty, and more mini’s! Again, being able to pick up a smaller size for much less money is so great! Here is Becca Highlighter in Champagne Pop. I now finally have this iconic product.

The lashes are Huda Beauty lashes in Carmen #9. It took me a while to get use to Huda lashes due to their thick lash-band, but now that I am I really like them.

This palette I just stumbled over on Instagram. I’d never seen it or heard of the palette before, and since it was reasonably priced I decided to pick it up and give it a go. The GLF Cosmetics Princesa Azteca Palette really has both a large selection of neutrals and colors and I am a fan of the selection. Did not get the chance to play with it yet, but eventually I will have a makeup look post and a review post of this. Just be patient, I got a big pile of stuff to review and too little time!

I also needed some basics! The OGX Hair Butter sounded interesting and I always need something to give moisture to my ends. Never tried this, but I have tried some shampoo and conditioners from the brand and have been overall happy with them.

The Human+Kind Shower Mousse Bodywash “Grapefruit Delight” I picked up because it smells divine and I can always use a nice body wash.

I am slowly running out of cleansing balm, and since it takes a while to get here through mail (I usually use K-Beauty cleansers and they are not sold in store in my country) so I picked up the Nivea Eye Makeup Remover in case I run out before the next one arrive. It’s cheap, that’s mainly why I picked it.

IMG_20180918_102907_777.jpg

I did not stop picking up some essentials there. I also got e refill of the St.Moriz Fast Self Tanning Foam. I am running low on my other one. Not sure how long I will bother to try maintaining a tan. After all I love north of the wall and don’t really need to be tanned in winter.

The Simple Foaming Cleanser was something I picked up because I have just a few uses left of my current one. Never tried this, and it was so cheap my hopes are not all that high. But hey, if it’s good I did find a nice affordable cleanser so always worth a try!

XHC Revitalising Coconut Water Shampoo and Conditioner was also a necessary refill. I am running low on shampoo and conditioner so new ones are necessary. These smell like coconut, which I like if it’s a good coconut scent, but hate if it’s too sweet or synthetic. I will have to get back to you on how I feel about this.

KMS Add Volume Hairs Spray is a sample I decided to try. I don’t always get overly excited about hair styling so I love being able to try a sample before buying the real deal. I find it to be such a struggle to try to get through hair styling I don’t like.

The same goes for Tony&Guy Casual Sculpting Powder. I am hoping this will be something to help me if my hair is to flat or greasy. Sort of like a texturing dry shampoo.

I was very much fond of the MorpheMe brush bundle this month. I really like Morphes Y-series, and I always need more eyeshadow brushes. One can never have too many blending brushes in my opinion.

Finally, after a long time, my Makeup Revolution parcel arrived. I ordered this in June, but it was returned and they had to send it back. International shipping back and forth does take time, but finally the Soph x Revolution Extra Spice palette found its way home to me together with the lipsticks “Cake” and “Syrup”, two very pretty nudes!

These three items were sent to me for free from Tambeauty. the reason was that when they tried to resend my order with the Soph x Revolution Extra Spice palette, one of the other items I ordered, a setting spray, was suddenly not legal to send due to new regulations. So they put some extra stuff in my package. The Palette is Obsessions Love Every Shade Eyeshadow Palette, and then I got a Obsessions Liquid Illuminator in the shade “S&X” which looks really pretty, and a Obsessions Lip Effects Gloss. Excited to try these things since the brand is new to me.

And finally, no month is complete without a Colourpop purchase! I picked up the gorgeous fall palette Good Sport, and the Super Shock Highlighter Palette “Crush On You”. Colourpop always has something new and I really try to keep up at least with their eyeshadow palettes. Their are challenging me for sure, but I love collecting their eyeshadows. They are affordable and one of my favorite formulas. What’s not to love!

Did you pick up anything fun this month?

XOXO
