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 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?

huda beauty amethyst obsessions review swatch eyeshadow palette look

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: Emerald Obsessions and Electric Obsessions and I loved both. Will the purple toned Amethyst Obsessions version be as great?

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.

Benefit Gimme Brow

When you say brows, there are only two brands that really made a name for themselves in the beauty world. On the one hand we have Anastasia Beverly Hills and on the other there is Benefit. I haven’t tried much by ABH: the brand just doesn’t appeal to me and I have a tendency to prefer drugstore brands for brow products. One of my favorite brow products is Essence’s Make Me Brow, which is a dupe for none other for Benefit’s Gimme Brow. It was about time, I tried the original, don’t you think?

Today I will be reviewing the first product from my New York Haul. Whenever I travel I like picking up products that I won’t be able to get at home. So before I leave I always scout out some brands that I hope to find. One of those brands for my recent New York trip is Kokie. This US only brand came out since the last time I was in the States, so I hadn’t given it a chance yet. I picked up a few bits from their line and I was most curious after their concealer.

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 get the hype these pricey shadows were getting. Then I saw more and more people talking about this and I decided to swatch it when I was in Paris. It was love at first swatch.
