Which is why today I am back with a vengeance and I bring to you another eyeshadow palette review including three looks with the palette featuring all shades in the palette. The palette in question? The Lime Crime Venus XL eyeshadow palette.

Drugstore foundations is a category of makeup I love trying out. Often they are not only as good as high end brands, but they can even be better and at a more affordable price point. For instance while I love the YSL All Hours foundation, the very similar L’Oreal Infallible Fresh Wear is as good and a fraction of the price. As far as drugstore foundations go, I have tried a few by Max Factor, but they have never been perfect. Will the Radiant Lift foundation break with tradition and wow me for a change?

So you can imagine that the little 9 pan Obsessions palettes by Huda Beauty are totally up my street. I already reviewed two that I own: Emerald Obsessions and Electric Obsessions and I loved both. Will the purple toned Amethyst Obsessions version be as great?

It’s the end of the month and that means it is time to have a look back at what I have been up to this month. Like last month, it was a month with some ups and some downs. I definitely enjoyed myself for the majority of it, but I was swamped by grading and my heating broke down, which was a fun thing to deal with (NOT!). But this post is about the happy things so here are some things that brought me joy in the month of November.

If you follow my blog or Youtube then you’ll know I love me some Urban Decay. So when I was in New York, I picked up the Urban Decay Naked Honey palette. This eyeshadow palette is new to Urban Decay’s line and fits within the Naked palette line they do. In today’s video, I review, swatch and show 3 different looks with this palette. But that’s not all: I will also compare this palette to each one of the other Naked palettes in the line and you’ll be surprised how well it goes with some of the older palettes.
