JCAT Loose Pigment Mirror on the Wall

JCAT Loose Pigment Mirror on the Wall

Time for something a little different on the blog. I try out a lot of eyeshadow, but mostly those are pressed shadows in premade palette form. What I review less is single shadows, let alone loose pigments! I only own a handful of loose pigment shadows and for good reason: they are messy to use and come with so much product that you will never use it up. In short, there never is any reason for me to invest the money into this kind of product. However, when I was in NYC last October, I wanted to track down JCAT Beauty as it was a brand I hadn’t tried yet. Their one product that stood out to me was their Vanity Goddess Chromatic Pigment in Mirror on the Wall.

dose of colors monochromatic eyeshadow palette review swatch makeup look marvellous mauves blushing berries application

If you saw Thursday’s video about neutral palettes, you will have seen me feature the Dose of Colors 5 pan monochromatic palettes as some of my favorite picks for a neutral matte palette. These palettes feature small, curated, monochromatic, matte color stories that are cleverly laid out and that is why they are so easy to use. So easy in fact, that I have been using these two palettes for nearly 2 years now without ever featuring them on the blog. High time to make a change! Meet Marvellous Mauves and Blushing Berries.

Revolution Pro New Neutral Lipstick in Stiletto

Ah the day I discovered red lipstick has been etched into my mind. It took some time to find a right one, but my favorite Russian Red by MAC is an oldie but a goodie. I first featured on this blog back in a 1940s inspired makeup look back in 2012!!!, so I am always looking for an update that could be as good as my OG fave. Enter a very random order from Makeup Revolution and my realization that I had never actually tried that many of their lipsticks. The result? A stunning red lipstick that has quickly made it to my top 5 favorite drugstore reds.

Tarte Blush Natural Beauty

For a while now, Tarte has been making some of my favorite blushes. I bought two of them a few years ago in Seduce and Achiote and I have been loving them ever since. The shade range is not my favorite, but one shade that I had been lusting after for a while is a stunning red called Natural Beauty. For a while it was more difficult to find and it seemed it had been discontinued. But for a year or so it is now back and so when I was in the US, I decided to buy it.

I don’t typically change up my brow products too much. I use them up and move on to the next one. And I have a couple of solid favorites that I go back to every time. One of those favorites? The Essence Make Me Brow brow gel. So since I love that so much why not try a new Essence brow product: their brow pommade brow pencil.

One of my goals for 2019 was to try my more indie brands. One of the first purchases I made was the Meesha Lou Cosmetics Witchcraft palette. It was a palette that many people raved about in 2018, but not many people talk about this brand anymore. And that is a shame, because now that I have tried it properly, this is a great, unique palette that deserves all the love it can get.
