The Balm Autobalm GRLPWDR Cheeks On The Go – Review!

It’s been a hot minute since I reviewed a product from The Balm. I do have a big fancy for their cheek products and their quirky fun packaging cheezy puns. It’s such a fun brand, but they don’t throw that many releases (which is kind of a reliefe) and their products are not that much in the spot light I feel, which is kind of a shame. So I don’t very often pick up something new from the brand, but when I do I am usually happy about them.

IMG_20191201_165530_782.jpg

This handly little cheek palette I just crabbed on the go. I basically picked it up impulsively when speeding by their display and I payed for it and left. I had never heard of this product, or seen it. I just grabbed it.

IMG_20191201_165718_047.jpg

It’s really cute though. The packaging is made of tin so it feels very sturdy. It’s kind of hard to open though, and I can’t imagine how hard it would be without any fingernails. Inside you get 4 cheek products. They are placed on a thray that you can pull out with a tiny band. If you are into depotting this will for sure make the job easier, and you could use the tin for something else. Not much, since it’s so small, but you could fit some mints in there. I preffer just keeping my products in the original packaging though. Oh, and there is a mirror too, which I find a bit too small to use when applying face products. Still, it’s there!

IMG_20191201_165626_073.jpg

Three of the products are matte and one is shimmery. The shimmery one could be used as highlighter if you have a dark enough skin tone. I would say medium to dark could use it as an highlighter. For me it’s a nice blush topper. I love adding some glow to my blushes with a topper so I am happy about that!

IMG_20191201_165600_317.jpg

The three other products could be your everyday blush. You get one peachy pink, one darker berry, and one almost brown tones neutral with some pink in it. For me all of them work as blushes. but the brown tones one “Bleeker” I have also used as a bronzer/contour. That may sound weird but since I have a light skin tone a brown powder with a pink tone is actually very natural and nice as a bronzer for me during winter. I have been using NARS Zen for that purpose a long long time (I even hit pan) even though Zen is originally a blush. I loved using Bleeker the same way, but I had to be a bit careful since the pan is fairly small and I had to squeeze my bronzer blush to make it fit to pick up the product.

IMG_20191201_165653_732.jpg

I tend to use smaller blush brushes (I have a small face) so I had no issues picking up blush. But if you preffer bigger brushes you may find the pans a bit on the smaller side. There is 2 grams of product in each though, which is a decent size for a blush.

Even though tiny and pocket sized, and even though you only get 4 different shades this little palette is surprisingly versatile and I found that it worked nicely with any look I chose to do. There is just a suitable option in there no matter if you go cool,warm, neutral or dramatic! A really smart and handy little thing that can take a punch (tin packaging) so safe to travel with.

Thumbs up from me for sure!

Colourpop Misunderstood Eyeshadow Palette – Review & Swatches!

The Colourpop Disney Villain collections was one of the most awesome collections they released throughout 2019! It’s just so fun and a bit different. The palette is absolutely gorgeous and packed with colors, and a few wearable neutrals.

IMG_20191204_120826_786.jpg

The packaging is really well put together. It’s loud! Outside is a ton of patterns, colours and off course villains. Inside the lid (does not have a mirror) is black with different prints on. The background of the eyeshadows is also loud and holographic. This palette just does not make any exhuses. It’s here to be seen!

It contains a total of 15 shades. 5 mattes, 8 metallics, and one matte base with glitter. Now, I always complain about those matte shades with glitter, but this time I will not (shocking I know!). This one has so much sparkle in it that it actually does look sparkly on the eyes. The shade is “Revenge” and it’s a deep sparkly black. Just a stunning shade of you want a sparkly black smokey eye. Perfect for a party!

IMG_20191204_120624_293.jpg

The metallics in this palette is really outstanding. Somehow these seem smoother and richer than previously. It made me wonder if they amped up their formula. Either way, it’s aboslutely stunning shades! They go on like butter, and are very pigmented and reflective. The color selection are diverse. You get some more neutral options like copper and gold, but you also get a very unique yellow toned green (my fave in the palette: Diablo) a purple, some stunning lighter shades, green and blue. The only one I want to point out something about is “Jetsam” because it seems to have a quite dark base and it does not look as blue on the eyes as it does in the pan. It just transfers a bit darker than I expected. Not an issue really, that’s just what that shade looks like, but it did look a bit different than what I initially thought. None of these metallics are disappointing though. The formula is just beautiful overall!

IMG_20191204_120603_808.jpg
The last swatch to the right is not a shade in the palette, but it’s the navy blue matte with the matte white layered on top.

You only get 5 mattes, and even though I love the formula on the metallics I feel like I missed out on a matte or two with this palette. You do get a couple of those very basic crease shades, which is nice if you want to go a bit more natural (which you can totally do with this palette even though it is loud) or if you just want to soften a look a bit. You also get a really nice matte white, that is wonderful at blending out the darker mattes. For instance, using the white to blend out the dark matte navy blue makes a beautiful lighter blue in the transition. So the white really comes in handy when you want to add more dimension.

IMG_20191204_120653_075.jpg

Then you have 101. Which Colourpop describes as a matte black. But compared to the deep black that the “Revenge” shade is (only with sparkle), this one does not look that black. It looks more like it has a dark green tone to it. I thought for a moment it was a deep green actually and that the green would show up more when I blended it out. It did not show up green. It was more like a really dark dirty brown. If this is supposed to be a black, I don’t think it’s a good black. Because I like my blacks to be black. I guess I am just confused about this shade being called black, but it did blend out and perform very nicely.

IMG_20191204_120721_417.jpg

The thing I feel like I am missing is a purple matte. A deep one because it would pair beautifully with several of the shades that I don’t initially want to pair with the dark navy or the “black” matte. So I do feel like the palette could benefit from such a shade. A dark toned matte brown would be good too. Surely, it would make the palette look more neutral, but it would also be a shade that could easily be paired with anything.  I think I would also have enjoyed the palette a bit better if “101! was actually a deep green that I could blend out with the white to create a similar transition as I could with the navy blue “The Fates”. I think composition-wise this palette is not bad, but I feel like it could have benefited from another nice deep matte shade.

IMG_20191204_120753_059.jpg

The quality of the mattes though, are really stunning. The white really strikes me as great because it really is a nice true matte white without looking chalky. If you wanted to add a really good white matte to your collection you got one right here! The more basic shades are off course not hard to work with, but also the deeper mattes blend really well. It can be hard sometimes to blend a pigmented dark matte, but these are really easygoing. I like that! There are few things more annoying than applying a rich deep matte and then struggle for ages to blend out the edges. No such problems with these shades at all!

So surely, I would have liked the palette composition a bit better if it was another dark matte shade available, but besides that the overall quality of this palette is really good. It’s even good for being Colourpop. It almost feels like they improved the metallics in this because it’s so smooth and buttery and pigmented. So yeah, good palette with fun colors. And off course, a must have for a Disney lover.

Makeupgeek Beautifully Bare Face Palette “Light” – Review!

When Makeupgeek released a face trio palette with a blush, bronzer and highlighter to fit different skin tones (they have one light, one medium and one deep) I was eager to pick it up because of my pleasant experience with their blushes from before. I chose the light version because I figured this would fit me most of the year, while medium would fit for maybe while I am tan for two weeks in summer.

IMG_20191201_165956_472.jpg

I really like that you get a trio custom to your skin tone. Usually there is always a shade that is too light or too dark, but the balance in this palette is really nice. I much prefer smaller palettes curated for different skin tones instead of those big palettes with the whol e range of colors. The colors (at least in the light palette) fits really well together as well. The bronzer is light. Maybe even a bit too light for me in summer during those two weeks when I have a tan, but it will be a very easy-going bronzer on me when I am at my normal state. The shade is not orange at all, while still not being ashy. I really like the shade of bronzer. I would say if you have a problem with bronzers generally being too dark, than this one is a nice one to try (and it does exits in singles too). The bronzer is almost matte, but it has a bit of pearl finish in it, which makes the result on your face very flattering. If does not look lifeless and flat, and it does not add any shimmer either. My favorite thing about this is that finish which is just so lovely on the skin.

IMG_20191201_165852_797.jpg

One thing I wish though is that it was stated more clearly on the Makeupgeek website that the shades in this palette are already existing single shades. I was not aware of that, and realized that I already own the blush in this palette. It’s not a very big deal though since the shade “Bliss” just happen to be my favorite shade of all my Makeupgeek blushes. It really is one of the prettiest peach blushes I have, and I appreciate that it’s both peachy and very light. Is it just me or do peach/orange blushes tend to go a bit darker? I usually find that the lighter shades are often pinks or neutrals. So this one is really lovely if you want a true peach for light skin. As well as with the bronzer, this blush has a tiny bit of pearl finish which makes it apply so easy and looks great on the skin.

IMG_20191201_165750_481.jpg

The highlighter shade is a beautiful light base with a peach duochorme  shift. It’s aboslutely stunning and fits really well together with the blush. The formula is super soft to the touch and applies really smooth. The formula is not glittery, but gives a nice reflective shine that can be build up if you want an intense glow. It’s also super gorgeous as an inner corner highlighter for peachy or coral looks!

IMG_20191201_165915_979.jpg

I was actually quite impressed with the formula on all these powders. They are so easy and effortless to use and looks so flattering on the skin. They are simply just really high qality face powders. I also love that they decided to put them in trios for different skintones. One for fair, one for medium and one for dark. Instead of making a 6 pan where noone can use all the shades unless they actually apply makeup on different skintones. For me who only use my makeup for myself, having a palette like this custom made for my skin tone i much better.

IMG_20191201_165852_797.jpg

So, overall I would absolutely recommend this handly little trio! I have nothing bad to say (except that I didn’t realize I already had he blush, but that’s on me I guess).  Highly recommended!

Colourpop Misunderstood Eyeshadow Palette – 6 Makeup Looks!

Makeup Revolution Matte Base Foundation – Review!

I am on good terms with Makeup Revolution foundations. The two I have tried from before are the Fast Base Stick and the Conceal & Define foundations. Both of them are great, and both of them are foundations I will and have repurchased. So I was tempted to find out if this one was as good!

I am usually more for dewy or satin finish foundations, but I am not a complete stranger to a good matte one. It all depends on the mood, how my skin is at the moment, and what look I am going for. Sometimes I like very natural, lightweight dewy finish and other times I want flawless full coverage. Naturally that means I need many types of foundations.

IMG_20191128_204138_631.jpg

This one promise to blur pores, have a matte full coverage finish while still being light weight on the skin and long-wearing airbrushed finish. As usual, the promises are high, and the downfall can be rough if the foundation don’t live up to the claims.

First of all. With the amount of product I used I don’t agree that it’s full coverage. I would say medium, but I do prefer using a smaller amount of foundation. A small pea sized amount is usually enough for me. Surely, adding more will give more coverage. It does feel light weight and comfortable on the skin. I don’t know if I would say airbrushed, but my skin actually do look nice! I think my skin is just a bit to old to ever look airbrushed. I will leave that to all of you under 25….you’re welcome!

IMG_20191128_204011_173.jpg

But matte is not an exaggeration at all. This one really is matte. It’s so matte that it sets itself and you don’t have to use a finishing powder. It dries down pretty quickly too. Since it’s such a matte foundation that dries down, it also means that it’s a bit unforgiving on dry skin. My skin is normal but can go a bit dry/dehydrated as seasons chance. Right now I don’t have much dryness, but the little I had was enhanced by this foundation. I don’t think this will be a very good choice if you have dry skin.

IMG_20191128_203948_103.jpg

It does last on my skin for a very long time. I was actually impressed with how nicely it stayed on my face. I didn’t see any patchiness, or any traces of the foundation settling into lines. And maybe most importantly of all, after a full 8 hour work day the foundation was still completely matte. Overall it just wears very nicely with minimal fading and I didn’t get shiny at all.

IMG_20191128_204104_381.jpg

I am a bit skeptical how it would look on dry skin since it’s so matte and long lasting, but I think this will work nicely for oily skin, and my normal to dehydrated skin matched really nice with this.

This is now the third foundation from Makeup Revolution that gets my seal of approval! If I want a cheap drugstore foundation in the future, Makeup Revolution will be the first place for me to look because I have been so very lucky with their formulas. If you like matte foundations, this one is really worth a go!

Colourpop Through My Eyes Eyeshadow Palette – Review & Swatches!

IMG_20191126_183142_535.jpg

I do love a good Colourpop palette. I mean, I have been collecting them like crazy, and their formula is usually wonderful. At this stage is mainly just a matter of if I enjoy the color story or not. I am usually confident that the quality will be great. They did have a few not so good palettes just when they were released, but I feel like it happened something after Dream St. because every palette seems to be so consistently good after that (with a feeeew duds here and there in the palettes, but usually the issues are minor).

IMG_20191126_183254_131.jpg

So off course, I had no doubt in my mind that I would enjoy the quality of this palette too. And the palette looks very intriguing. First of all it looks like they put a little more effort into the packaging than usual. It feels different with the soft tough cardboard, and it actually has a pretty design (compared to some of the palettes they release which is plainly the name of the palette and nothing else). There’s also a mirror inside that actually works! At least I can fit my face in the mirror so it’s easy to actually use it to apply makeup.

IMG_20191126_183232_444.jpg

You get 16 shades in this palette. The color story leans very warm and neutral, but has a few pops of green and wearable berries. I would say this palette is spot on if you like to stick to the safe and sound more simple everyday looks, but would like to have the option to go for a killer emerald smoky eye from time to time. Although it’s mainly neutral I don’t find it boring. Because, although being very wearable it does offer a lot of variety. You could do a very wearable pink/berry look, something more orange warm and bronzed, or just super simple with “Sandalwood” in the crease and one of the shimmers on the lids.

IMG_20191126_183057_760.jpg

The balance of mattes and metallics are (as usual with Colourpop palettes) quite good. You get 7 true mattes ranging from light to deep. All of them are beautiful crease shades depending on if you want to go very natural, have a lighter pop of color like mustard or orange or deep green and aubergine colors. So depending on how dramatic or colorful you want to go you get a good amount of options. You also have one stunning mid-toned coral satin, a bone shade with a very subtle abount of shimmer, and one of those matte bases with small flecks of glitter. That last one I used as a matte, hence I don’t understand why the glitter needs to be there. I have said it over and over again, I really don’t see the point in that formula, but at least it works well as a matte. I can just pretend it’s matte I guess.

IMG_20191126_183208_602.jpg

You also get 6 metallic shades. They have a nice selection of colors. Also with the metallics you can choose to go very natural, or fun and colorful. That gorgeous green “Emerald Dreams” really is super stunning on the lid if you pair it with “Moody” for a sarkly emerald smokey eye. With the exception of “Ludico” and “Nocturne” which are really smooth, the rest have a bit of chunkiness to them due to fine micro glitter. That makes them stunning on the eyes, but it also means they could really benefit from a damp brush…..and you probably will get some fallout. However, being as beautiful as they are they are well worth the effort. I did feel like I had to build up the shade “Mesmer-eyez” a bit as it did not seem as rich in pigment as the other ones, but it did build up nicely.

IMG_20191126_183121_097.jpg

This really is a solid all-round palette that you can get a whole bunch of different looks with and there is really not much negative to say about it. If you like the color story, I am sure you will also love the quality.

Stunning palette with tons of options! I aboslutely recommend!

Juvia’s Place Afrique Palette – Review & Swatches!

Afrique is a bright and fun 12 pan palette released by Juvia’s Place in 2018. Inspired by African culture both the colors in the palettes and patterns will surely pick up your mood. It looks to fun!

IMG_20191030_160325_630.jpg

The design is true to Juvia’s Place regular design. You got these funky ladies on the front cover with a bright orange background. When you open it you get an explosion of pattern an colors where you usually have the mirror (no mirror here as usual), and it surely gives me African vibes. The color story is also fun as Juvia’s Place palettes usually are. Just upon opening the palette I feel like there is so many fun, creative looks to do!

IMG_20191030_160421_976.jpg

There are 7 mattes and 5 shimmers. Let’s chat about the mattes first. There is a nice selection of both bright, fun colors and some neutrals. This palette really is the perfect balance between color and neutrals. Even though at first glance it looks more like a colorful one, you will be able to just as many neutral looks as colorful ones with these shades. The two brown shades are good. They have a decent pigmentation and blends very well. The deep maroon matte also works nice. These three shades was the three best mattes in the palette.

IMG_20191030_160553_369.jpg

I rarely have any issues with Juvia’s Place palettes. I really have just been bragging and bragging about them in my reviews. That’s why I was left a bit puzzled when I played around with the colorful mattes. The yellow is not very pigmented. It really needs to be build up, and honestly I don’t really feel I get it exactly to where I want it. That’s odd because they have proven that they can make good yellow mattes with the Zulu palette which I own and love. Not only did I have issues with the yellow, but also the matte blue and matte green. I felt like they were a bit patchy and that they really had to be built up. I found it hard to do more advanced looks with them because getting them even was a challenge. It was kind of like they were a tad too dry. Finally the matte orange, I had minor issues with. It was again not as pigmented as I wanted. Once again they also have a better orange in Zulu. It did not apply patchy, but it needed to be built up more than what I am used to with Juvia’s Place.

IMG_20191030_160358_021.jpg

For the most part I did like the metallics though. At least Kofi (metallic gold) and Togo (Metallic green) are true to the regular Juvia’s Place formula I feel. I do think Angelique (metallic bone color) was nice but a tiny bit chunky. Maybe it’s the lack of my skills rather than the eyeshadows, but I found it hard to photograph because it looked chalky. I realize that this is not really an issue at all. Most people would not care at all. I found Fifi (metallic red) to not be as rich as I am used to with Juvia’s Place metallics. The last metallic shade “Cotonou” was also the most disappointing. I am used to Juvia’s Place metallics to be so rich, so when I had to build up this to get my payoff, I was just not happy. I feel like they CAN do so much better, so I am a bit puzzled why they didn’t.

IMG_20191030_160448_277.jpg

Sad to say, even though the color story is fun, and you can get a good makeup look out of it in the end, I am just not as happy with this as expected. I know Juvia’s Place can do nice matte colorful shades, because I already have a lot of them. These shadows just don’t live up to the usual standards. Some of the metallics hold the good old stunning formula, but a few of the metallics also missed the mark.

IMG_20191030_160521_131.jpg

I love Juvia’s Place eyeshadow palettes, and I would recommend every single one of them. I would suggest buying any of the other palettes before this, because this one although usable does not live up to the other amazing Juvia’s Place palettes. Just pick another one!

Have you tried this? Did it work for you, or are you also left with the feeling that it’s not as good as the other palettes?

Colourpop Sweet Talk Eyeshadow Palette – Review & Swatches!

Super sweet springy peach palette by Colourpop. People went wild over this collection, and I agree it’s one of the prettiest released in all of 2019, which actually is quite an achievement since Colourpop release something faster than most. I do really thing this palette is really really pretty. Both inside and outside.

IMG_20191023_193111_085.jpg

Now, I guess we can both agree that Colourpop is not the brand to make the most out of their packaging. For the price that is not expected either, but they can be a tiiiny bit on the too simple and boring side (plain packaging with just the name), but this time it looks like they actually has a designer on the job (you don’t need a graphic designer to get the name in plain letters). The packaging is beautiful this time. And it raise the whole feel of the palette to another level. It’s pretty and I want to see more like this!

IMG_20191023_192907_586.jpg

The color story is pretty too! According to Colourpops own website this it their #1 bestselling palette and I totally see why. The mixture of peach, corals, browns and golds as well as a wide range of textures makes this palette both exciting and wearable with many options.

For the first time Colourpop put one of their famous Super Shock shadows in the palette. A lot of people were worried that it would dry out too quickly, but apparently the formula has been reformulated to a non-drying one. I had this for some months now, and it still works fine. We just have left to see how it holds up one or two years in a palette. This should be the first time they put a super shock shadow in a palette, but I think “Tickled” from the Oh La La palette which was released a while before seems suspiciously similar to a super shock shadow too. The shade Side2Side is the one shades in Sweet Talk with this formula. If you haven’t tried it before it’s hard to explain. They can be a little tricky, but they are very very pretty. Especially the shimmery ones, which are very impactful, and often has a unique sparkle to them. Side2Side is perfect as a topper shade, because you can just tap in on top of your lid with a finger to give the look a whole new dimension.

There is also two pressed glitter shade shades. I am maybe one of the very few who actually appreciate pressed glitters in a palette. Then I always have an option to spice up my looks even further. Glitter are not eyesafe, and on the back of the palette you can read the warning from Colourpop saying they are not intended for use on the eyes. I do take my chances, but if you have sensitive eyes just please be aware that they are not intended for eye use. Some say it’s stupid to put non eye safe items in a eyeshadow palette, but it’s the same thing with many pressed pigments. They have to claim it’s not eye safe even though most people use them without even thinking about it. I have my suspicions that this warning is mostly because they are demanded put the warning there, not because it can’t be used. Anyway, with that being said, I really like the Colourpop pressed glitters. They have a nice formula and are fairly easy to pick up and apply. And off course as glitters most they give the possibility to get your look to the next level.

The rest of the shadows have more regular formulas. Meanly mattes and metallics. I love both of these formulas, as I say in every palette review. For the most part there are mattes (7) and only two metallics. That’s OK because the super shock shadow and pressed glitters gives you as much sparkle as you can get. The quality of both these formulas are great! Good pigmentation, blends well and are very soft to the touch. Colourpop simply makes quality eyeshadows overall. On occasions I find some shades I don’t love or have minor issures with, but that’s not the case with this palette. All shades perform well!

I have no problem at all understanding why this is Colourpops top seller. Not only is the quality amazing, but the great mixture of textures and lovely color story offers something that can cator to very many different people. One of my favorite Colourpop palettes for sure!

Colourpop Salvaje Eyeshadow Palette – 4 Makeup Looks!

Another week, another Colourpop palette to do looks with. Well, I actually try to not do Colourpop every week, but they keep releasing so much I kind of feel like there is a large overload of Colourpop reviews on this blog. I don’t mind though, Colourpop palettes are fun!

The Salvaje palette is a nice neutral palettes with golds, copper, browns and red tones with a pop of blue and peach. Not the palette for the hard core color lover, but certainly some nice colors if you like neutrals that are a bit more than just neutrals. If that makes sense.

I did four looks with this palette!
