KARITY Professional Single Eyeshadows – MY Fave Picks

 

Hi everyone! Some of you guys asked for a review when I got my order in and I’ve to apologize for this insanely overdue post. My obsession for eyeshadows is real and you won’t believe if I told you that it’s all buried deep in my storage drawer that I totally forgotten about these. So instead, today I’m going to show you what’s my favorite picks that I got from Karity Professional and how I save coins

I did a research and here’s the story behind this company. According to their website, Karity aims to “By selling directly to you, they cut out all of the extra markups that make all of those other fancy brands so pricey.”

#Karity Eyeshadow Pan

My obsession for neutral nude eyeshadows are endless. So, when I saw these pretty shade eyeshadows I knew I needed to try some of them. On their website they have eyeshadow palettes as well as individual shadows. I picked up seven single shadows from matte, velvet and frost finishing for you to get the sense of the type of finish this brand offer.

I’ve found some amazing and affordable eyeshadow that’s comparable to the Colourpop individual shadows and I’m excited to talk about them today. Scroll down for comparison from both brands in packaging, eyeshadow and to color swatches.

KARITY CRUELTY FREE
Cruelty Free

As you can see, they come in a cute packages and when you turn around it, you’ll also see the list of ingredients, as well as it’s cruelty free and recyclable. It gives you the texture of the color, it’s matte and the name.

Did you see that happy little cruelty free bunny!

KARITY SLOT PALETTE
#Karity $12 Eyeshadow Palette

12 SLOT MAGNETIC INTERCHANGEABLE PALETTE

I bought this separately to fill the individual eyeshadow pans. This palette also contains built in magnets that can hold up to twelve of our finished single shadows or empty 26mm pans. It comes with a huge mirror that I really appreciate.

INSIDE INTERCHANGEABLE PALETTE 12 SLOTS

Note that it doesn’t have a magnetic closure but it’s definitely a sturdy constructed palette to store your individual shadows. The lid’s opens and shuts with a click. This palette is the exact dupe to the Coastal Scents Interchangeable Palette if you asked me. If you’re only looking for an empty palette and for the price alone, I would say go for the Coastal palette. It’s only a fraction of the price for the exact product 

All the shadow pots stick perfectly to the base due to the magnets. It’s a good size palette that’s travel friendly and convenient to bring everywhere. I like that I only picked the colors I want in it, my own customized palette tailored to me.

KARITY EYESHADOW PALETTE

As you can see the shades although pigmented are also extremely buildable, so you can create a very soft and natural look with these neutral shadows. I would say the lasting power is decent but it gets better with eye primer for sure.

SWATCH MOONSHINE

Today’s blog post is super quick but jammed packed with photos. I wanted to share with you the full swatches of the eyeshadows I got from Karity. I understand how hard it is to shop online so I’m hoping these straightforward swatches help.

Below are the color swatches I did on my arm without primer or eyeshadow base. I love how pigmented these shadows are. The texture feels smooth and creamy. I’m surprised that it blends so well given they’re so pigmented shadows.

SWATCH DIMEPIECE

The color payoff is amazing, what you see is what you get!

I don’t have all the Mac Single Shadows to compare but here’s the list of dupes of (Mac vs Karity) I found on Pinterest which I hope helps. I’m pleased to have picked up six out of seven Mac dupes from Karity that saves me some money.

Nylon – Moonshine

Brule – Birthday Suite 

Electra – Dimepiece

Soft Brown – Inod

Texture – Panama Gold

Embark – Temptress

I mentioned earlier in this post that I’ll be doing a comparison between Karity and Colourpop so here’s a quick sneak peek. If you like me to do a comprehensive blog review, let me know in the comment below. As far as packaging, formula and price tag goes, I think they’re very competitive and similar in many ways. To top it up, both are also cruelty free brands except Karity is a little underrated.

 

Overall verdict: These eyeshadows are richly pigmented. I like the way it applies and blend. Honestly, I’m quite impressed with the quality and the affordable prices are a hard thing to come by. This cruelty free single shadow is only $4.50 and they got all shades of the rainbow for everyone. I do recommend you giving these a try because you won’t be disappointed. So what are you waiting for – don’t take my word for it, go check it out!

When you order from Karity, make sure to use their offer for FREE Shipping on US orders over $35. I want you to save on shipping so I’m just passing on the good news. I don’t work or have any affiliate links with this brand.

BH Foil Eyes 28 Color Eyeshadow Palette – Review & Swatches

 

 

*Warning: This post may be pictures heavy.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi guys! Welcome back to my blog. It’s very nice to see you stop by. Hope you’re week were great.

You know that I’ve raved quite a lot of BH Cosmetics eyeshadow palettes in the past and today is no exception too. I love love BH Cosmetics’ products and so far they’ll hits in my book. Their products haven’t let me down thus far. I’ve been enjoying all their eyeshadow palettes and frankly am very satisfied.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Without further ado, let’s jump into the deep end of foil-ey goodness!

I got this Foil Eyes 28 Color Eyeshadow Palette Foil Eyes 28 Color Eyeshadow Palette together with some other BH products I ordered online for my beauty haul. This palette is one of them.

Regular price palette is for US$19.00 but it has been for US$12.00 for a while. Foil Eyes palette houses all 28 gorgeous shadow with pearl and metallic finishes. The  packaging is of black plastic and the cover is of frosty clear material with no mirror nor brush applicator.

And to my Canadian beauty friends, it’s still extremely reasonable even with the exchange rate in my opinion.

BH Cosmetics is a cruelty free brand and for those of you who are eco-friendly then this palette is something you would want to check it out.

Just look at this eyeshadows. Now tell me if there is any reason not to love!  These are the most beautiful foil eyeshadows I’ve seen so far. These shades are super pigmented and creamy. The shades are more along the cooler tone and gem stone shade range. With that being said, these are very wearable everyday shades that you can transition easily from day to night in your makeup look. What more could you ask for?

closed up foil eyes palette

There are so many awesome shades that keeps me going back to create many different eye makeup look. From neutral to spring and straight to punchy summer glow.

I find that working with foil eyeshadows, it performs better if you use your fingers to pat the products first and then blend them carefully instead of using a brush directly.

There’s no shadow names so I’m just going to put a number from #1 to #28 starting from first row from left to right and repeat three more times continue numbering from left to right.

foil eyes 28 colors

Just to point it out. I find the packaging to be so-so. The outer packaging is pretty sturdy, but I’ve noticed that some of the shadow pans are beginning to come unglued. It doesn’t really bother me at all since I can glue them back. Other than that, nothing terribly bad to say about it. This is an awesome palette.

Umm you guys…you need to keep reading to see my swatches and review.

The Best Cheap Makeup aka Drugstore Dupe

 

Confession: Alright! I’m a makeup hoarder. Okay, maybe that wasn’t exactly groundbreaking news but you see, I love makeup. I do not discriminate towards any certain price point. If it’s good stuff, I will sing its praises. In fact, I am a sucker for a good dupe, and will always choose it if it performs just as good as its high end counterpart.

As a self-proclaimed beauty addict, I’m not ashamed of my love for/need to try every new product out there, but obviously this addiction isn’t very budget-friendly.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Today, I’ve something special to share with you all. I’ve here what I think is the best cheap makeup. They’re everything you can find at your drugstore. From foundation, mascara, to eyeshadows and more! Keep your eyes peeled for what I’m about to reveal here. Who doesn’t love a good splurge…. but a good steal is the real thrill!

Best of all? This bad boy is under $10! Hurray!

I have this Color Tattoo Metal 24 Hrs Eyeshadow in Barely Branded for $7.67 at my local drugstore but you can find it at Walmart, mass merchandise retailers or drugstores.

The shade is gorgeous. It is probably my most favorite cream shadow I acquired from Maybelline Color Tattoo Metal line. You know me: nude crazed lol!

Speaking of pigmentation, this Barely Branded has good pigmentation and creamy. Layering is easy to achieve and color last all day with no creasing and minimal fading.

You can wear it alone as an eyeshadow or like me I used it as an alternative dupe for Mac Painterly. I haven’t a clue how Mac Paint Pot formula is like but I heard this Color Tattoo Barely Branded is a close dupe for the shade Painterly. If you have tried both, I would love to hear your comments below.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
I’m sharing my thoughts on my experience with Maybelline Color Tattoo and not comparing the difference of the two for dupes. This is just my personal liking for Color Tattoo Barely Branded shadow which I think was a great find for me to use as eye base until I’m ready to invest on the paint pot by Mac. 
Here is the swatch out shadow directly from the pot. You can see just how pretty the pigmentation is. Amazing, right?
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Since this is a dupe for Mac Painterly, you can easily save more than $15.00 easily. 
Overall, I am blown away by the gorgeous shade in Barely  Branded and I’v been reaching for it since I got it. Now that I know I’m in love with this dupe, I’ll be repurchasing this once I ran out. You can find this product at any drugstores. 
Off you go to your nearest drugstores to check it out for yourself and be sure to visit Maybelline website.
Got any beauty dupes you’ve found lately? Share your favorites with me in the comments below!
Thanks for stopping by. I’ll see you again on the next one! Ciao bella!
