Better late than never, that’s when I thought when I finally purchased the Too Faced Chocolate Bar eyeshadow palette. The last Too Faced Chocolate palette that was still missing from my makeup collection. I already owned the Semi-Sweet, Chocolate Bon Bons and Sweet Peach palettes. I never bought this one, because it appealed to me the least. I mainly got it to round off the collection and because it is one of the most hyped up palettes in recent times. What do I think now that I have been using it for some weeks?

Essence just released their new limited edition for winter 2017. When I spotted they do a 12 pan eyeshadow palette that reminds me of Urban Decay’s Naked 3 palette, I knew I had to try to get my hands on it. The new Winter Dreams eyeshadow palette is surprisingly good in my opinion.

My only Black Friday purchase? The Zoeva Opulence Collection. Like last year, they were doing 20% off again on their entire website. Last year that meant my purchasing the Plaisir Box, this year that meant purchasing the Opulence collection including the eyeshadow palette, face palette and a 10 piece brush set.

Warm eyeshadow palettes are everywhere these days and that means the drugstore cannot be far behind to hop onto the band wagon. MUA is the first affordable brand that truly has tried nailing a super warm toned eyeshadow palette. Meet Fire Vixen: the warm toned eyeshadow palette of your dreams, if you love your oranges and reds. And is that a bit of Huda Beauty’s Rose Gold palette inspiration I am seeing there? Time to put it to the test!

You know I love my Urban Decay palettes and every year when they bring out their holiday releases, I’m keeping my eyes peeled for them to be released. In the sea of eyeshadow palettes, I love my Urban Decay best. I don’t like all of them, as I explained in yesterday’s video, but I like many and that is also why I have quite a few. When I saw the Heavy Metals palette pop up on Instagram I knew: this is right up my street. Is this a case of OMG-Urban-Decay-did-it-again or one of Oh-no-they-didn’t?

Limited Edition for Holiday 2017
It’s the Holiday season and that means that many makeup brands have begun churning out new makeup palettes and limited releases by the busload. I always feel a little bit overwhelmed this time of year and so I thought it would be good to not talk about which palettes are on my wishlist, but palettes I have decided, both past and present, not to get. Because even though I have a large eyeshadow palette collection, this means in no way that I blindly purchase every palette on the market. Here are 15 palettes I decided I don’t need in my life.

Last year Sleek released some new I-Divine eyeshadow palettes. On the Horizon was one of them, but they also did a pastel number: Nordic Skies. This light colored palette features lots of mattes which is quite different for Sleek. So, is the quality as we can expect from Sleek?
