Colourpop The Fame eyeshadow palette

If you saw my recent eyeshadow palette declutter than my doing this review may come as a surprise. But I believe that even if I am not a huge fan of a product, I should still review it. The Colourpop The Fame palette is one I have owned for a while now but that I…

Eyeshadow Palette Declutter 2020

It is time. Time for another declutter. I declutter my makeup collection once a year as I feel my drawers begin to overflow and it is just time to get rid of things as my preferences shift and I am stuck with a bunch of super old products that I never use anymore. We are…

Zoeva Eye See eyeshadow palette

For this week’s Shadow Saturday we will be having a closer look at one of my favorite eyeshadow brands: Zoeva. They do some stunning palettes and are one of the most underrated brands in the beauty world. They are a German based brand and therefore were ignored by a large part of the beauty community…

Nabla Secret eyeshadow palette

Nabla is an Italian indie brand that I have been loving in recent years. Especially their eyeshadows have been some of my favorites. I bought a bunch of their singles to put into my custom Blue/ Green/ Purple palette and loved them. However, their palettes are also great as I already stated in my review…

Ranking Too Faced Eyeshadow Palettes

Remember my love for eyeshadow palettes? Time for another eyeshadow palette video then. This time we are ranking my Too Faced eyeshadow palettes. I own 7 of them in total, most of them in the tin packaging. From the OG Chocolate Bar, to the hyped up Sweet Peach and everything in between: Can you guess…

Ace Beauté Slice of Paradise eyeshadow palette

Hi there! I was feeling something fun and bright this week. We have had such gloomy weather with lots of stormy weather, rain and just dark dreary days. So what do you do to combat the winter blues? We wear rainbow colors! And what better thing to do than to bust out a rainbow eyeshadow…

Cool Toned Eyeshadow palette collection

Eyeshadow palettes: you know I love them. Some of my favorites are cool toned eyeshadow palettes. So I have quite of few of them. And since I feel that the makeup industry should create more cool toned palettes, I felt I would do a video dedicated to just my cool toned eyeshadow palettes. Hopefully, this…

Colourpop Dream Street

Is this my first Colourpop eyeshadow palette review? Yes it is. I have not yet reviewed Colourpop palettes. I have reviewed their eyeshadow singles and supershock shadows (spoiler alert: love them), but never their palettes. Why? Because I was overwhelmed. If there is one brand that churns out releases it is Colourpop and so I…

Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture

The most controversial eyeshadow palette release in recent years? I think still, till this day it has to be ABH’s Subculture. The minute this launched people were falling over themselves to tear it down. Since then, the palette seems to have been reformulated and it also seems to be discontinued as well. That said, since…

All Star Eyeshadow Palette

You know I love eyeshadow palettes, but what if I could build my own? What if eyeshadows were players to select to play together in a sport’s team? Which ones would play together well? What color story would I go for? How would it all work together? With just one shadow per palette to pick,…

Creating Fantasy Palettes

If I had to pick a favorite makeup item, then you know it would be eyeshadow. Up to 2019, I was mainly focusing on buying stand alone palettes. But last year I wanted to try more indie brands and a lot of their shadow is only available as single pans. So I became more focused…

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…

Dose of Colors Monochromatic eyeshadow palettes

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…

Best Neutral Eyeshadow Palettes

Let’s talk about my favorite thing on the planet, shall we? Yes, we’re doing another eyeshadow palette video. Because I love palettes. I love neutral palettes and in January of 2020 it is all that I have been using. Time for an overview! So this video is my top 15 favorite neutral palettes that are…

My Blue/ Green/ Purple Palette

What do you do when you want a blue/ green/ purple palette but no brand is currently making one? You make one yourself! That’s exactly what I did in early 2019. By now I have played around with these shadows enough: I did multiple looks, swatched everything, used shades separately and just got a good…

10 Recent Eyeshadow Palettes

Let’s kick off new year with a bang and review some eyeshadow palettes shall we? I spent the past few months trying out 10 different eyeshadow palettes again and in today’s video I will be giving you my full review. I show swatches for each palette and at least one (but usually more) makeup looks…

MeeshaLou Cosmetics Witchcraft eyeshadow palette

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…

2019 Favorites // Eyeshadow Palettes

It is the final day of the year which means it is time for the final video in my 2019 makeup favorites series. It is time for eyeshadow palettes today and you know this will be a long one because you know this is my favorite thing. So let’s not beat about the bush and…

If I Could Keep Only 10 Eyeshadow Palettes

Ah I’m back! I’ve been missing a few uploads this week as Christmas Break is nearing and life always gets a bit hectic if you work in education and you’re close to a major break. So I cannot guarantee regular uploads for the rest of this week as I am essentially pooped and just can’t…

Lime Crime Venus XL

You may have noticed I have been MIA for a few days and that’s because I caught a flu. So I decided to get over it first before posting again. 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…

Huda Beauty Amethyst Obsessions

Perhaps you are familiar with some of my new eyeshadow palette release videos and then you may know that I am not a fan of super big eyeshadow palettes. 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:…

Urban Decay Naked Honey

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,…

Tag Tuesday: Evaluating your eyeshadow palette collection

For today’s video I thought we could have a bit of fun. You all know how much I love eyeshadow palettes and I found a fun tag in which I have to evaluate my collection. There are 8 questions in total and I really took the time to answer each one. So today’s video is…

Natascha Denona Gold

So I am super excited about today’s eyeshadow review as I am reviewing the Natascha Denona Gold eyeshadow palette. This bougie, expensive palette is one that I ummed and arred about for months before biting the bullet last summer. The reason for my hesitation? I bought the Lila and didn’t love it. I just didn’t…

Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry eyeshadow palette

Do you know that feeling when you use an eyeshadow palette and you know it is just right for you? That is how I feel about the palette I am reviewing for you today. Last year I went on a complete ABH kick and purchased all the remainder palettes that were out and I didn’t…

Focallure Review // 3 Palette Review

Today’s video is a special one. This is a video on a new to me makeup brand: Focallure. This Chinese makeup brand contacted me whether they could send me some products to try and for me to do a video on it. Since I already featured one of their palettes in one of my Buy…

Juvia’s Place The Festival palette

If there is one brand that can guarantee a good, colorful eyeshadow palette, it would be Juvia’s Place. This affordable brand does some great palettes and their color stories are always unique. I already reviewed The Magic, The Zulu and The Saharan palettes and did three looks with The Tribe. Today we will be having…

Cult Palettes I Don’t Own

In today’s video I thought we could chat about some popular eyeshadow palette that everyone seems to have apart from me. There are so many cult favorite palettes that get hyped up and while that is meant to make you want to buy a product, it does not always have that effect. In the case…

Milani Soft & Sultry

One drugstore brand that does great eyeshadow? Milani. Previously I reviewed their Earthy Elements palette and loved it. Lately, the brand has been changing their eyeshadow range and are now doing 12 pan square palettes that are a bit more pricey, but that took the beauty community by storm. Because even though they are a…

Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism

It’s Shadow Saturday again and today I am bringing you a review of a palette that I think is super fall appropriate. The palette in question? Yup, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism eyeshadow palette. I still have to review my Subculture one too, but when I was thinking of which one to do first, I…

10 Recent Eyeshadow Palettes

In my August eyeshadow palette haul, I showed you bunch of new eyeshadow palettes I was going to put to the test. By now, I have tried most of them and so I thought it was time to update you on my thoughts on some of them. In today’s video I am therefore reviewing 10…

Zoeva Spice of Life eyeshadow palette

We’re in the midst of fall, so what better palette to review than the Zoeva Spice of Life eyeshadow palette? This palette is part of the chocolate range that Zoeva do and since I love those, it was only natural that I would try this one too. The minute I spotted this, I knew this…

New Eyeshadow Palette Releases

We are definitely in makeup release season! The new releases have been flying around and so I felt it was perfect for a new month to do another one of my new eyeshadow palette releases videos. Which one of these new releases is on my wishlist? Are there any I already bought? Which ones I…

Catrice & Essence Royal Party Sister Love Limited Edition

It’s finally here! The longawaited Catrice & Essence limited edition Royal Party/ Sister Love has arrived in stores and I lucked out and found an untouched display and was able to pick up all the palettes I wanted from this collection. This limited edition features 14 eye and face palettes of which I picked up…

Catrice The Spicy Rust eyeshadow palette

For palette Saturday I decided to keep it affordable this week. Catrice releases these little clear palettes every time they revamp their line and for Fall/ Winter 2019 they have released a very warm toned rendition. The Spicy Rust collection fits well in Catrice’s line up of palettes and it is also perfect for fall….

Essence Crystal Power eyeshadow palette

The small, but curated Essence Fall/ Winter update contains some product in the new Crystal Power line. When I bought the products not all of them were available just yet, but of the ones I got, I was of course most curious for the eyeshadow palette. When I tried it in my first impression’s video…

Buy or Bye? // New Eyeshadow Palette Releases

What’s new in makeup? That is the question we will be asking ourselves in today’s video. I have gathered a bunch of new eyeshadow palette releases again and with a new announcement being made almost daily it’s been quite the month. Between holiday releases and everyone and their mother releasing new palettes there is a…

Make Up Revolution Soph Extra Spice eyeshadow palette

It’s Saturday which means we are having another closer look at an eyeshadow palette. For today’s review, I figured we could have a look at a more affordable option that I think is really good. Say hello to the Make Up Revolution X Soph Extra Spice eyeshadow palette. The Soph palettes by Make Up Revolution…

Playing with Singles // Swatch Party

Let’s have a bit of fun shall we? Over the summer I decided to buy some more indie makeup in the shape of eyeshadow singles. I did an installment last February too, but today we are playing with multichromes, duo chromes and glitters by Devinah, Looxi Beauty, Clionadh, JD Glow and Colourpop. Everything that sparkles…

Colourpop Single Eyeshadows // Pt. 2

Yes part 2 and this is late because I went to a concert last night and in the end just couldn’t be bothered to finish this blog post to go live at its usual time. That said, though, I still wanted to get something up today so I am writing this as I am having…

Least Used Palettes

For my final August Palette Extravaganza video, I decided to talk about palettes that I liked, but don’t use enough. Either they have too few colors that appeal to me, or the formula takes more time to work with. So it’s not that I don’t like these per se, but there is just something about…

Reorganizing my Colourpop palettes

For today’s post I just have a quick little video for you in which I rearrange my Colourpop singles. I have bought quite a few of these over the past year. I built my first palette in June 2018. I ended up liking the shadows so much that I decided to do another BYOP (Build…

Eyeshadow Palette Collection

It’s time! It’s here! It’s the epic eyeshadow palette collection video I have been teasing you about since the start of August Palette Month. If there is one makeup product I love the most it is eyeshadow palettes. And so I have quite a few. Nearly 200 to be exact. Is that excessive? Yes it…

Violet Voss Hashtag

Today I am reviewing another eyeshadow palette. I really feel I should be doing this more often, but there are so many pretty things and then these sort of slip through the cracks. The palette I am reviewing for you today, I have owned for over a year and I am only just now getting…

What is in my MAC palette?

One of the oldest palettes in my makeup collection isn’t an actual palette that is sold as such. When I got into makeup, palettes like the Urban Decay Naked or Too Faced Chocolate Bar had not yet been released. Back then, everyone bought singles and MAC was the place to be. So I decided immediately…

Rainbow Eyeshadow Palettes

In the past year or so, I have gotten into colorful, bright eyeshadow. I decided to try more and just play around and have fun with my makeup. Where I used to be a neutrals girl, who always needed a brown in the crease, I decided to push myself to wear color beyond a pop…

Make Up Revolution Flawless 4

When it comes to affordable eyeshadow palettes, I think one brand really takes the cake. That would be Make Up Revolution and all its different sub brands. Be it I Heart Revolution, be it Make Up Revolution: all their palettes give you decent quality for a good price point. So I decided to try some…

Buy or Bye? | New Eyeshadow Palette Releases

It is August and the makeup release train is still going strong. I had found quite a few new releases again via Instagram, so high time to do another video. Here are my thoughts on some newly or soon to be released eyeshadow palettes August 2019 edition.

Top 5 Bottom 5 | Colourpop Single Eyeshadows

Colourpop is known for doing great affordable makeup products. They churn out release after release and it is often difficult to see the wood for the trees when picking what to purchase. I have tried several products, but when it comes to their eyeshadow I have not collected many of their palettes. In fact, I…

If I Could Keep Only One | Eyeshadow Palette Edition

What I like is knowing about people’s ultimate favorites. With as many eyeshadow palettes as I have, picking favorites is like picking your favorite child, but still, I thought it would be fun. What if I lost all my makeup, what eyeshadow palettes would I rush to repurchase if I could? If I had to…
