I was at the drugstore yesterday and I picked up this new highlighter which I’m really excited to share my first impression. I’ve always looking for affordable makeup products that actually work. So that’s why this really appealed to me. This brand is a familiar friend and it’s the most ravedWet n Wild Mega Glo Highlighter Powderby so many beauty bloggers and youtubers in the beauty world. I was really curious and have always wanted to try out new drugstore products.
I haven’t open it yet just so that I could show it to you guys a bit of a first impression here on my blog.
First of all let’s start with the packaging. It comes in a simple Wet n Wild plastic compact packaging and it’s huge. I’m sure I’ll get a lot of use on this.
There’s like a flower petal stamped onto it which I find really cute and the shade I got is in Blossom Glow. It’s a new shade brought to you by Wet n Wild. The new shades are the Royal Calyx (lavender), Botanic Dream (pink), Blossom Glow (pale pink champagne), and Golden Flower Crown (yellow-gold) that currently joined the lineup of Precious Petals (peach) and Crown Of My Canopy (copper). Even better, each one is retails for CAD$6.99 which is so inexpensive for a drugstore brand and they’re cruelty free.
If you’re curious to know what ingredient is in this product, I thought I might as well give you a close up look. So there you have it, I hope it helps.
I’m going to do a swatch here for you guys. OMG! It’s so buttery and so soft. Blossom Glow is so pretty. It’s like a pale pink champagne color. I’m obsessed. This shade is totally something I’d wear on a daily basis. It’s pigmented and yet blend so well. I’m pretty impressed and loving the formula already. When you swirl it around with your fingers, it just feels like butter and so soft on the pan. I love it and have high hopes on it. So I’m excited that it work.
Here’s a close-up of the shade Blossom Glow.
It actually looks like a glow rather than chunks of glitters. It comes out on my skin tone as an irridescent pink. It’s so pretty, my highlight is popping girls! I’m obsessed!
Overall, here’s what I’ve to say about this product. I love the glow it gives to the skin. This is an amazing highlighter especially for the price. I highly recommend this to my friends!
Let me know if there’s any new products that I missed. I was on the hunt for like brand new launches for spring.
Hey guys! Welcome to Tester Wednesday! Today I’m going to share with you my thoughts and opinion on this Be Eyeshadow Palette by BH Cosmetics I’ve tried over past two week on rotations.
I did mentioned this before in my previous post where I talked about the collaboration between BH Cosmetics and beauty Youtuber Bubz Beauty. She has her vlog channel just like other youtubers. Did I mentioned that she has almost 3 million subscribers? I don’t know if you care but just to put it out.
According to her, it took her 8 years to work on this palette. Imagine the effort and hard-work poured into it. I love supporting youtubers who work hard with brands to create a palette with followers or users in mind. It’s the concept of the palette that caught my attention. She went with the inspirational theme; “Be whatever you want to be”. And this palette says it all.
Let’s talk about the packaging. I really like the rose gold lace detail on the front of the palette. It’s so girlie and feminine. The packaging is cardboard like the other BH Cosmetics YouTube collaboration palettes, which makes it super light weight and easy for travelling. Inside you’d find a decent size mirror and twelve pretty eyeshadows on it.
I’m a sucker for eyeshadows names when it comes to palette. Don’t you hate it when they don’t! I mean come on … I just don’t get why don’t. How hard could it be to name eyeshadows?
But thankfully, this palette what I wished for in a palette. And I’m happy for that.
You could wear inspiring shadows like Grateful with Confident and Able or any combination shades your heart desire. (Image inserted below is what I’m wearing on my eyes today #EOTD using the shadows I just mentioned).
As these shadows are nicely pigmented, you can definitely build up the colors. They’re very easy to blend with no fallouts!
#EOTD Look – It gave me this warm, rustic eye look, and I also winged my eyeliner and applied a warm mauve lipstick to tie it all together!
My top favorites are Happy, Optimistic, Charismatic and Thoughtful. Which inspiration shadow names is your favorite? I love to know.
All of the colors I have used or swatched on my eyelid are decently pigmented. I haven’t found a lot of fallout with these shades and instead I find the formula is almost buttery for the most part except for one of them which I find a little more chalky than the others. It’s the shade Confident (the eggplant purple).
So overall, this is a great palette if you’re looking for a budget palette as an alternative. Another point I like to mention is that this product is cruelty free meaning they’re not tested on animal just in case you’re concern about it.
Did you order the “Be…” palette? What do you think of it? Let me know!
I hope you enjoy this month’s picks. Until next time, take care everybody!
Thank you all so much for popping over to my blog! come find me on all my other social media sites such as Facebook/ twitter/ Instagram @heysharonoox. I love interacting so don’t be afraid to say hi.
Not another nude palette! I can hear you groaning from the other side of the screen. Now, wait just a second before you click away. Can we just take a moment to appreciate the fact that brands are finally getting the hint and releasing full eyeshadow palettes? And the fact that while prices may be slightly rising, the quality of drugstore products is too?
Today, I’ve a beyond amazing palette from the collection to share with you.
I’m THRILLED to see a new collection from NYC after what feels like a long dry spell and good new is that you can find them at Target and Walmart. Yes, it’s true, Demi Lovato has teamed up with N.Y.C. New York Color Cosmetics to launch the Lovatics Makeup Collection for Spring 2016! In case you don’t know who she is, Demi Lovato is a spokeperson or brand ambassador for NYC.
It may not be new to some but definitely new to me. I was intrigued by this 12 shadows palette. It’s so funny when I saw this at Walmart and it was like the only one left. It’s like the whole display was raided by people who has picked up this palette. So, I got my hands on the collection and I couldn’t wait to share with you the Lovatics by Demi Eyeshadow Palette.
Now, let’s have a look:
The new fashionable NYC Lovatics by Demi Eyeshadow Palette (CAD$7.97) features 12 nude shades and allows you to channel Demi’s confidence all while showcasing your natural beauty. Your eyes will look naturally effortless with the Natural shades.
NYC has had a reputation to have hit-and-miss products through the years, even though the brand is responsible for some of my personal drugstore favorites.
This is a full-fledged eyeshadow palette with twelve shades with matte, shimmer and satin finishes. The packaging is like the cheap, light weight design. No mirror in this of course. It comes with two sponge tip applicators in here. On the back it assigns each shade here, and number 1 to 12, and then it tells you how you pair the colors for different looks.
When you stick a brush in, it do kick up a little bit of powder but at the same time I find them easier to get the color to show up on your eyes.
Here are an up-closed pictures on the 12 shadows in this palette. You’ll get 4 matte shadows with 8 lovely shimmery shades. I didn’t noticed any creasing or fall out actually. Just make sure to tap off your brush before applying to eyes since it can kicked off quite a bit of products.
Their formula is on point, nothing like what I’ve seen from NYC in the past— smooth and easy to blend, and not to mention pigmented. Color that lasts gets an A in my book, everything else is just cherries on top.
Pigmentation is surprisingly fantastic across the board. The formula was unlike anything I’ve tried previously from NYC as well— buttery and smooth, with only a little powder kick-up in the matte shades.
I find that the formula lends itself to super easy blending, and the shades all work so well together. Just to point it out, this palette gives you so much flexibility. So happy that even the lightest shade is visible to my light/medium skin toned. Yay!
Honestly, you’re totally able to take a look from day to night, or even pull off no-makeup makeup look with the lighter shadows. On the other hand, you can use the deep shades to create the sultriest of dramatic looks.
I’m really liking the shimmery shadows especially number 2, 4, 6 & 7 and the 4 shades of matte are a tad powdery in my opinion.
Here is a quick summary of whether NYC Lovatics is a dupe or dud compared to Urban Decay Naked 1 palette.
If you’ve been eavesdropping, you would probably heard the comparison between this palette with the original Naked Palette. Truth is they do look very similar, don’t you think?
I’m really impressed with some of the shades and formula here. To me at a glance, I think that it’s trying to be like the Urban Naked 1 original palette, just by looking the overall color palette skim and the pattern of shades.
The Lovatics palette contains a nice mix of matte and shimmer shades, and the shimmers range from barely-there shimmer to a moderate amount of shimmer.
I do think that they’ve a lot similar shades to Urban Decay Naked 1 Palette. The whole range are in the ball park of the Naked palette, but it’s not a dupe. For me a dupe means it has to be the exact same thing. I couldn’t really do that, but I can achieved a similar look when I wanted to mimic one eye to the other especially with the darker shadows.
The NYC palette is more chunky, flaky and powdery overall as compared to Naked palette which is buttery smooth and highly pigmented.
Overall, I think I’m quite impressed with this palette by NYC. I see that NYC is really stepping up their game!
For about CAD$7.00, this palette is a new drugstore favorite of mine. If you already have the Naked palette, I’d say you could skip it, but if you’ve been on the hunt for an affordable alternative, this is the one. I’m honestly so impressed with the quality and that jaw-dropping price!
