Jordana Sweet Cream Liquid Lipstick Review!

jordana liquid lipstick

I recently uploaded a new video to my Youtube channel! I know I didn’t post last week, but I was incredibly sick, and ended up in the emergency room last Friday. Good news is, I’m getting better, and I feel well enough to film and try to play catch up around my house.

I asked Instagram and Facebook which drugstore liquid lipstick I should review next, and the polls were pretty torn. Jordana barely won. With that being said, if you were team velvet mousse, I’m trying those out this week so I can post a review next week!

I found my Jordana lipsticks at Kmart for $2.99 each. Be warned, these have been super popular and a bit difficult for many to find. I lucked out and found mine the day they had been restocked, but even then, creme brûlée was sold out. That’s the one other shade I want!

Anyway, I hope you all enjoy this review, and I hope it’s informative. If you’re not subscribed to my youtube channel already, be sure to do so if you want to see what I post on there as soon as it’s uploaded!

 

As always, thanks for stopping by, and I hope you’re all having wonderful days!

Shop My Stash: Fall Blushes

fall blush

Hey lovelies,

I’ve been playing with this idea of sharing some things from my makeup stash as I go through things and switch products out, and what better time to start than when the seasons are about to change? So, here I am today with some of my Fall blushes that will be in my regular rotation for the next few months. Some are well loved, and some are yet to be loved.

IMG_2077

Everyday Drugstore Faves:

Milani Rose Blush ‘Awakening Rose” I know, I know, I talk about these rose blushes so often. I can’t help it, they truly are amazing blushes for the price. That and the packaging is to die for. Awakening Rose is a really gorgeous everyday mauve shade, and I actually used this in my last tutorial. I use this shade very often and that pretty rose embossment is still there.

Nyx Powder Blush ‘Dusty Rose” this is a shade that will pair really well with all the trendy dusty rose shades this Fall. It’s more of a satin finish, so it’s not too matte on the skin, and I find the powder blushes last for a long time on my skin, personally. I do find these to be very pigmented and a bit powdery if you use a heavier hand, so make sure to lightly apply this. The Sedona Lace duo fiber brushes are my favorite for applying very pigmented blushes.

Wet n Wild “Mellow Wine” I’ve talked about these blushes before, and for $3 you really can’t go wrong with them. I wear “pearlescent pink” all Summer, and I switch them out for this on in the cooler months. This is another one to use a light hand with. I like to look like Snow White, so I know shades like this won’t be for everyone, especially my fellow pale friends.

IMG_2076

Everyday Matte Blushes

City Color Cosmetics “Papaya” I’ve mentioned these on my blog as well. I picked up a bunch of these for $3 each at my local Five Below, and Papaya is probably my favorite shade of the bunch. It’s a beautiful matte mid-tone peach shade, which is something I gravitate towards for everyday looks, especially when I don’t know what other blush to wear. It pairs well with everything, much like the matte version of Milani’s “Luminoso.”

City Color Cosmetics “Blackberry” Okay, are we seeing a trend yet? I really really love deeper mauve shades. I feel they compliment my skin tone very well since I have natural cool undertones. Don’t let the name of this one scare you, it’s actually a really lovely deeper pink shade that pulls almost purple. If you don’t have a Five Below near you, I will leave my City Color coupon code at the end of the post. No pressure, there’s a lot of codes that float around so you don’t have to use mine. I did purchase these blushes myself though.

IMG_2075

Go Bold or Go Home

Milani Baked Blush “Red Vino” Alright, this shade is not for the faint of heart. It will totally look stunning on darker skin tones, but I use this as my staple “Snow White” shade paired with just mascara and a red lippie. It makes me look flushed, and the gold in this gives a stunning sheen to my skin. It’s a shade that I don’t hear enough about, probably because it is so dark in color.

Kat Von D “Essex” I don’t know if these blushes are available anymore? I’m still going to mention it for anyone that still has these in their local Sephora. Yes, these are $25, but the packaging is beautiful and a little bit of this blush goes a long way. It’s a beautiful rose shade that I tend to wear almost everyday, if I’m being honest. This formula lasts so long on the skin as well, and I really hope these aren’t being discontinued forever.

ColourPop “Cheerio” This is a shade that I haven’t been able to play around with much. It’s another that looks really intimidating in the pan, but swatches lighter on the skin. It’s a marsala type of shade that has a satin finish. I really love this shade and can’t wait to play around with it more as the weather cools down!

That’s it for today’s little “shop my stash” entry. Let me know if you all like this type of post, and I will try to put something else together soon! I really need to go through my stash and show some things some love before I end up with 100 of everything. The joys of being a makeup enthusiast.

Have a good day, beauties.

Wet n Wild Fall 2015 Swatch Party!

IMG_1434

Hey lovelies,

I had another post planned out for Swatch Saturday, but then I stumbled upon these and I honestly just couldn’t wait to share them with you all! It’s no secret that I love Wet n Wild, and I always love their seasonal limited edition collections. I was meandering through Kmart (where I always find my best makeup finds) and I felt my heart quicken at the site of a completely untouched display of the new Fall stuff.

In this collection, there are 4 palettes, 6 (I think) lipsticks, and 6 nail polishes that are all limited edition. The palettes are in the traditional Wet n Wild quintet form, though I’m not the biggest fan of the quintet set up. I liked the way the Summer 2015 collection looked better, if I’m being completely honest here. The price per palette is $3.99.

The lipstick packaging is super cute. The packaging is almost like the usual megalast line, but matte black. MATTE. BLACK. I die. I wish they would make them all matte black. These are $1.99 each. In a nutshell, you could buy this entire line and only have to not go to Starbucks for about 3-4 days…which is possibly what I had to do to be able to buy these. I regret nothing.

I picked up 2 palettes and 4 lipsticks for now.

wet n wild fall 2015

This one is called The Gal-lery Next Door. Very clever. This one caught my eye because the definer shade looks super pretty, and purples are my favorite. I think that purples and plums look amazing on green eyes.

IMG_1436

These are the swatches. Sorry that the base shade is very close to my skin tone. These all swatched nicely. I will say that with these I don’t foresee myself being able to use only this palette. That’s one of my only beefs with these little palettes in general. I feel like I can’t do a completely look with them, personally.

wet n wild fall 2015

This one is called “Don’t be a Poser.” This palette is all shimmers, but the darkness in it just spoke to me on some weird level. I kinda want to pair this one with my Milano palette and do some super grunge looks to summon the colder weather.

IMG_1426

These all swatched nicely, but the “crease” shade did give me a bit of kick up. It’s still probably my favorite shade in this palette. It’s a really lovely dark forest green shade.

Even though I am happy with these, I wish there were more matte shades overall. I know that I am not the only one that likes to use matte shades in the crease and lower lash line. I would have loved to have seen a palette with a true dark matte orange and matte black. Or one with a shimmery champagne mixed with a lot of neutral/warmer matte shades. Maybe I’m alone here, but that’s how I feel about many of these quintet palettes, which could be why I don’t own many of them.

wet n wild fall 2015

Now, time for the lipsticks. These lipsticks are incredible. They swatched so smoothly, and they are so pigmented. I love the darker shades in this line. If you are on a budget, but you want the browns and wines that are trending right now, keep your eyes peeled for this line in your local drugstores.

wet n wild fall 2015

From left to right: coffee buzz, vintage vibe, photobomb, nightcap

My two absolute favorites are Coffee Buzz and Photobomb. Not only is the name of Coffee Buzz perfect, but it’s like a brown with a bit of purple in it, which is really unique! These colors will probably be the among the first to sell out everywhere, so I would not hesitate to pick these up if you want them. The LE Wet n Wild lines do tend to sell out quickly in general.

In all, I’m not head over heels in love with the palettes, but I am head over heels in love with the lipsticks. There are a few reds in this collection as well, but I truly need to use some of the other reds in my collection and not buy anymore. This probably won’t happen, but I’m trying. I am curious to see how close in color Vintage Vibe is to Melt Cosmetics’ “Darkroom.”

Anyway, that’s all the swatches I have for today! Will you be picking up anything from this line? Let me know in the comments section! If I pick anything else up, I will make sure to do another post! If you want to see a look done with anything, please feel free to ask! Or, if you want to see lip swatches of any of the lipsticks done on my twitter, snapchat, or instagram, I can do that as well. I just did quick swatches so that you all can have a good idea of what everything looks like!

Have a good weekend, beauties. As always, thanks for reading!

Top 10 Wet n Wild Products (Video)

IMG_8288

Hey lovelies,

I know I don’t always post on Fridays, but I did upload a new video to my Youtube channel yesterday! It’s also a collab with Kaily from Hello Kaily which means you’re getting two videos! Well, technically four, because we’re both uploading “get ready with me” style videos next week *winks awkwardly*

I’m really happy that Kaily wanted to collab with me on this one, because I think with brand focused videos it’s awesome to see different points of view and an variety of products. That and if you’re nosy like me, you probably like to see why people prefer some products over another within a brand.

If you don’t follow Kaily or you’re not subscribed to her, definitely check her out! I will have her video linked in this post along with mine, and I have her channel link in the description bar.

I hope you all enjoyed this video! If you want to see any other brand focus videos, please let me know! Have a good day, beauties.

Affordable Vampy Colors

IMG_8194

So, I’ve went over some affordable shades of red and my favorite “my lips but better” shades, but I haven’t touched on some of my absolute favorite shades to wear…vampy shades. I know that some people will see this and gasp and shout, “BUT IT ISN’T FALL!” and honestly, who cares? Screw rules. You wanna walk outside in 98 degree weather and rock a dark purple lip, do it. Own that shit.  I wear dark colors all year. There’s just something about a simple eye and bold lip that boosts my confidence. Okay, bold lips in general do that for me.

Beautiful and high quality darker colors do not have to cost you an arm and a leg though. However, if you’re nervous about wearing a vampy color and want to drop $20 on that Anastasia liquid lippie, buying a $5 tube of a similar color could boost your confidence and allow you to see if you like the color beforehand. Skip the usual $5 latte one day and go hit up your nearest Ulta or drugstore, because that’s where many of the shades I’m about to talk about came from!

Nyx Simply Vamp “She Devil” Okay, the name of this lipstick is badass for one, but I am a huge fan of the Simply everything formula by Nyx. I am not a fan of the packaging though. If you can get past that, these are amazing, and will only cost you $6.50 I believe. She Devil is a gorgeous blackened purple color, and it reminds me of Mac’s “Cyber” lipstick that everyone was ga-ga over last year. I don’t have that one to compare, but the formula of the Nyx one is creamier and a bit glossier. It dries down to a more semi-matte finish.

Nyx Simply Vamp “Enamored” Honestly, I recommend checking out all 6 shades in the Simply Vamp line because I own them all, but I tried to choose my absolute favorites, and this is one. Every time I wear this shade I get compliments. It’s a gorgeous burgundy shade with an almost rust look to it. Very 90’s shade, in my opinion. I was a kid in the 90’s so I wouldn’t personally know, so I’m just basing that off of old pictures from The Craft.

Colourpop’s “Pitch” This shade is the essence of the 90’s. It’s a straight up chocolate brown. It’s supposed to be matte, but the Colourpop formula isn’t as matte as a liquid lipstick. This shade is most comparable to Lime Crime’s “Salem,” though it’s not a spot on dupe. I really like to wear this shade on top of the “creature” pencil to give it a more reddish tone. These are also $5 each.

Colourpop “Creature” If I’m being honest, I reach for this shade so often. I love it. It’s a deep burgundy red with a hint of brown in it. This is also matte, and looks a bit more matte on the lips than Pitch does, in my opinion. I don’t always buy the matching pencils with these lippie sticks, but creature is one that I have used so often since I’ve had it.

Colourpop’s “Feminist” The color of this lippie is BOLD. It’s a super dark blackened purple, and it reminds me of Anastasia Bevelry Hills’ “Potion” but of course the Colourpop one isn’t a liquid. So, if you’re not into the liquid lipstick trend, but want a blackened purple, look into this one! The lippie sticks are only 1 gram in product, so if you don’t end up liking it or using it often, it’s not a huge waste of product.

IMG_8196

Milani “Matte Fearless” I know I have mentioned this lipstick so many times already, but it is so perfect. It’s a dark purplish burgundy, and you can’t beat the price for a shade this gorgeous!

Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream “Transylvania” This is a cult favorite, and for awhile I didn’t fully understand the hype because the formula is a bit patchy on this shade. However, paired with a deep liner this shade is fantastic. I only added it in here because it is a cult favorite, and someone might be looking for a helpful tip to actually make this shade work. I love the color, but it really does look patchy alone.

City Color Be Matte “Marissa” This is the most matte formula in this post. I have said that before, but I’m saying it again so that everyone knows that this formula is much like the Melt Cosmetics formula. Super matte, and super drying. I did see a post on Dupethat stating that this shade is an exact dupe for Melt Cosmetics “Dark Room” and from what I could tell in the photo, it was a spot on dupe, finish and all. This lipstick costs $5 on the city color website, for can be found for cheaper ($2 for me) at your local Five Below.

Milani “Matte Love” This shade is a deeper cranberry shade. Perfect for those that want to try darker shades but don’t want to go from pink to goth in 2.5 seconds. I feel that this shade would be flattering on several different skin tones, and like I have said before the moisture matte collection by Milani is currently my favorite drugstore matte line.

That’s it for my post today! I hope you all enjoyed it, or at least found it entertaining in some sense. Do you wear vampy shades all year, or only in the Fall and Winter? Are you going to pick up any that I mentioned in this post? Comment and tell me about it!

As always, thanks for reading, and I hope you’re all having lovely days!

Milani XL Bronzer: Dolci Collection

milani bronzer

Hey lovelies,

Who’s up for more swatches of new, but limited edition, things from the drugstore?

I have seen pictures floating around instagram of the new Dolci collection by Milani in drugstores, and while I was making a run to CVS I saw the display in my store. On the display there was an eyeshadow, lipstick, lip gloss, nail polish, and this big ole bronzer duo. They’re all named Dolci. I only picked up the bronzing duo though, because I actually don’t own many bronzers.

They scare me. I’m so afraid of looking like an orange or that it will look good in my mirror and like shit in natural light that I honestly just don’t use bronzers often. With Summer approaching though, I do want to give them a try again and see if I can find one that warms up my face more than my Body Shop Honey Bronzer without making me look like an orange covered in dorito crumbs.

This bronzer and highlight duo claims to be for all skin types. That’s a pretty big claim. I picked this up for $10, which is expensive in terms of drugstore products, but there is 12 grams of product in this baby and the “shelf life” of it (if you go by that kind of thing) is 36 months. So, I do believe for the amount of product there is and given you can use this for 3+ years…$10 is a pretty decent price.

IMG_7045

Personally, I love the packaging of this duo. It’s so Summery. The little imprinting seems to not go all the way through the product, but pretty far into it. To give an idea of the size, it fits perfectly into the palm of my hand. It’s a pretty decent size.

IMG_7046

On the left is the bronzer and the right is the highlight shade

These swatched very nicely. They didn’t feel powdery or apply unevenly. Both sides were very soft to the touch.

Bronzer: When you look in the pan you can see shimmery flecks in the bronzer, but it doesn’t translate onto the skin very much. This shade is pretty warm, but I have tried it once and it looked great on my skin when I used a very very light hand with it. It’s warm, but it’s not overly warm bordering on orange, if that makes sense. It does look and apply very nicely to the skin.

Highlighter: I’m trying to figure out what I can use this shade for. It’s gorgeous, don’t get me wrong, but it’s too dark for me to really use on my face as a highlight or to set anything. I may try it as an eyeshadow. I’m definetely a bit perplexed by it, but I will eventually find a use for it.

Overall thoughts: I’m happy with the bronzing side. It’s still a bit intimidating right now to me to apply, but I feel that as Summer draws nearer and my skin deepens up 1-2 more shades that it will look way better on me and not intimidate me as much. However, I feel that if you’re darker than me you should totally consider this duo! I think the overall quality and price is amazing if you’re looking to add something pretty to your collection.

Have you picked this up at your local drugstore? What are your thoughts on it? If you haven’t gotten it, will you be snagging one? Comment down below!

As always, thanks for reading and if you’re new to my blog I hope you decide to stick around!

Hardcandy Ombre Baked Blush and Highlighter Duo

hard cany

Hey lovelies,

Today I wanted to share a few products that I have had for awhile and have been meaning to review and swatch. If you’re new here, there’s something you should know: I love Hard Candy makeup. I think they’re an underrated drugstore brand and I wish I saw more people talking about their products! There are some misses, but lately they have been coming out with some stellar and affordable products, and I want to share a few with you all today.

The two products I want to share are an ombre baked blush and a highlighter duo. The baked blush I believe is permanent, but the heart shaped highlighter is not, sadly.

If you’re unfamiliar with Hard Candy, they’re a Walmart exclusive brand that is also cruelty free. I have done a review of their new Natural Eyes palette that I will link at the end of this post.

IMG_6881

First up, this baked blush. Can we just admire it for a second? It’s so gorgeous. I love baked blushes in general because I find them to be pigmented and shimmery, so many times they act as a highlighter-blush in one. No need for extra steps in my routine on a busy morning? Score! What’s unique about this ombre blush though is that you can kind of “customize” the shade you want based on where you apply your brush. You can go to the white side for just a highlight. You could go on the other side for an intense pink, or somewhere in the middle for a very pretty pink glow. It’s up to you!

This product is very pigmented and swatches very well. It looks beautiful on the cheeks. I have the shade “punch” but I’m really tempted to go and pick up the other shade as well. I find that it doesn’t take much at all to get color to your cheeks, so be wary of that if you’re not into the intense Snow White kind of look (I am, not gonna lie).

IMG_6872

Swatches shown left to right: highlight side alone, everything swirled together, pink side alone

See, it’s totally like getting 3 colors in one product! I love this little baked blush.

Highlighter duo: First off, the cute little heart tin packaging spoke to me. So reminiscent of the Too Faced heart-shaped boxed blushes. It’s not as fancy as the Too Faced ones, but it’s still cute in terms of drugstore packaging. This was part of the collection Hard Candy released for their 20th anniversary.

IMG_6880

There are two sides, obviously. A lighter and darker side. I didn’t know how the darker side would look on my fair skin, but surprisingly this product leans more on the “natural glow” side than the “wam bam highlighter in yo face” side. There’s no visible glitter in it. The texture and finish reminds me much of Physician’s Formula highlighters, and those are my absolute favorite highlighters in the drugstore.

This duo felt very soft and buttery to the touch. You can tell when you touch it that it is finely milled. I’ve also seen people depot the heart very easily by just popping the little booger out and into a z-palette, if that’s something you would want to do.

Because this is a duo, you can use either side or mix both shades together. The swatches I have are of just each side.

IMG_6873

I had to go over each swatch a few times simply because this product really does give a natural glow and it’s pretty hard to overdo it.

It lasted fairly well on my face, but I will say that after about 8 hours it seemed to fade away. I don’t touch up many times throughout the day, so that’s something to keep in mind if you’re wanting to wear this all day…it might fade after awhile. Would this be work appropriate? Yes. Appropriate for a night out at the club? Maybe not.

I will say that overall I’m happy with this little tin of prettiness, and I think this will look pretty in the Fall when I want a more toned done “glow from within” type of look. It’s a very pretty champagne highlighter that is pretty good quality in terms of drugstore highlights. Do I like this more than my holy grail Physicians Formula?? No, but I do think this is a nice and cute thing to add to your collection if you’re a Hard Candy lover.

As always, thanks for reading this post if you made it this far, and if you’re new here I hope you stay awhile!

wet n wild silver lake

Hey Beauties,

Today I have more things to review and swatch! I feel like that’s what most of my posts have been lately, but the Summer collections are starting to hit drugstores and the products obviously just want to come home and live with me. So, they magically end up in my hands and before I know it I’m paying for them and walking out the door. Makeup trance, I swear.

Anyway, I’m pretty excited to be reviewing these because I have noticed online that they are starting to pop up in more stores. When I saw the display for these I noticed there are 3 trio palettes in all. I did not pick up the third one simply because every shade in it was way too dark for my skin tone.

IMG_6496

I did pick up the other two in “Fair Trade Coffee” and “Sunset Junction” though. These were $3.99 each at my local Walgreens, or $1.33 per shade since there are 3 shades in each palette. There are 12 grams of product in each of these, so I for sure got my money’s worth in terms of amount of product vs. the price, which is something I personally consider when buying limited edition items.

Something I struggle with when it comes to limited edition items is that I don’t want to buy something and not use it, or feel afraid to love it and use it too quickly. I’m sure any makeup collector/enthusiast has felt this struggle at some point or another. However, when companies put a lot of product in a limited edition item it gives me a bit more room to fall in potential love with it, and makes me more likely to purchase it.

Each trio has a bronzer, highlight, and blush. There’s no separation between each product in the pan, so I’m not sure if that’s going to be a problem in the future.

IMG_6495

On the left is Sunset Junction and the right is Fair Trade Coffee.

Swatches:

wet n wild fair trade coffee

These are swatches from “Fair Trade Coffee.” Odd name, but I really love the blush and highlight in this one. The blush is very pigmented and is a pretty dark pink color. I love pink blushes on every skin tone. I feel this shade of blush is one that many skin tones can wear and either lightly apply it or pack it on. The bronze shade is way too orange for my skin tone, but I could probably use it as a crease shade if I’m in a pinch. If not, I still love this trio and I’m very happy with it. I’ve worn the highlight a few times and it’s super pretty and fairly subtle, yet glamorous at the same time. It has a bit of sparkle to it, which is something to keep in mind. I like a bit of sparkle in my highlight though. I like to shine bright like a diamond.

wet n wild sunset junction

These are swatches from “Sunset Junction.” Once again, I would not be able to get away with that bronzer, but the other two shades are so lovely. I have been using the blush and highlight from this trio often since I’ve picked it up. The blush is pigmented and is a pretty light pink, and paired with the highlight it gives my skin a very radiant and healthy glow, which is something I need taking care of two small kids everyday. Fake it till you make it, right?

Overall: I’m impressed and happy with these. For $3.99 each I feel these are awesome little trios for Spring and Summer. The colors are pigmented, and they are smooth and easy to blend out. The bronzers are super orange, which is disappointing, but I would totally buy these again and I don’t regret this purchase. Even if you’re not a fan of sparkly highlighters, you could probably use them on the eyes as a nice shimmery shade with the bronze shade in the crease, because the blushes in these trios are awesome.

Anyway, I’ve been very impressed with almost everything Wet n Wild has released the past few months and I can’t wait to see what else they have in store!

If you have these, let me know what you think of them!
Will you be picking up anything else from the Silver Lake collection or any of their newer products?

Wet n Wild Lunch in Sao Paulo Palette

wet n wild lunch in sao paulo

Hey lovelies,

So, I was trying to find the California Roll palette from the Silver Lake collection only to discover that most of the Walgreens in my area have started to take the displays down. I was a wee bit crushed. However, Kaily from Someday Sunny must have felt my pain states away and found one and is sending it to me! Seriously, that made my whole day.

The point of me mentioning that is because even though I couldn’t find anymore Silver Lake palettes, I did find a display with a new Limited Edition Wet n Wild palette!

If you’ve read my reviews on the Paris Runway and Milano palettes knows that I think the quality of these palettes are awesome for drugstore eyeshadow palettes. If you’re looking for a cruelty free and affordable palette, I do reccomend them.

With that being said, to avoid repeating myself I’m just going to share photos and swatches and my thoughts on how this compares to the other two.

Price: $7.99, same as the others

Permanent? Nope, this is one of the limited edition items from Wet n Wild that will be popping up over Spring and into Summer. So, if you see it and want it, snag it.

Colors: This palette has a few very bright and colorful shades and some neutral shades. There are no matte shades in this one, so you may need to use some from other palettes if you’re like me and enjoy matte transition shades, but overall the colors are very pretty and I feel there’s a decent amount of diversity.

Quality: The quality is the same as the other two, in my opinion. Very easy to swatch, and the colors feel very nice. A few of the colors were very slightly powdery, but nothing too bad. I do feel that in terms of drugstore quality, these are awesome shadows.

This palette comes with the brush just like the other two did. It’s not my personal favorite brush, but it works if you’re in a pinch, or if you’re just starting out with makeup.

Swatches:

These swatches are done with no primer underneath. The color payoff was really nice. The yellow-ish color I had to work a bit with, but I typically do with all lighter shades because my skin is so fair. I’m dying over that greenish-teal color though. I really want to play with that one.

Overall thoughts: Ah, I’ve been sucked into the “limited edition” trap once more. However, this one I am very happy with, and I’m already planning out a possible “get ready with me” video using it! It’s probably obvious by now that Wet n Wild is one of my favorite drugstore brands.

I don’t know if I like this palette more than the Milano one, but I do like it more than the Paris Runway palette. I don’t like that it lacks mattes, but the pretty colors kind of make up for it I suppose. The closest thing to a matte is the teal shade, but even then it still has a bit of sparkle in it. However, if you did some blending you could probably blend the sparkle away. Only do that with shadows, don’t blend your real life sparkle away 😉

I do have some more limited edition goodies from Wet n Wild to review soon, so stayed tuned! If you’re new here, stay awhile if you want!

What are your thoughts on this palette?? Will you be picking it up?
