Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Blush Palette Review and Swatches




Urban Decay came out with the Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow palette a few months ago and now they recently released the rest of her collaboration collection with them.

I didn't run out and buy this when it was first released , but so glad I finally have it now.



Can we just admire the packaging? Just as cute as the eyeshadow palette.


Cherry, Easy, Angel, Lo-Fi , Hush , OC


The blushes are really soft , very easy to blend and yes have kick up which is a little more than I prefer to have in my blushes.

I do wish it had maybe 1 or 2 more darker / brighter shades in the palette.

Although the palette works for me and I really like it , I don't feel this will work on darker complexions.

Hey I am an Orange County girl myself and a big fan of No Doubt and Gwen so I basically had to have it.

Retail is $45.00

Have you tried the palette yourself? 

XOXO,

Vicki

Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Gleam Kit Review and Swatches





Hard Candy, Mimosa, Starburst , Crushed Pearl


ABH has released two new highlight kits. 

I have both of them, but I will start with Gleam since I think this is my favorite of the two.

Gleam is such a unique palette because you can wear it if you're cool toned or warm toned and light to dark skin tones can wear these shades.

This one I would say is definitely universal.

I love Hard Candy the most, it is a duo chrome shade and is gorgeous.

You get a lot of product for only $40.00. 

I think this one is a must have if you can only get one of the sets.

I love that you can wear them as a blush topper for added dimension. 

Stay tuned for the Glow kit ( Warm shades)  coming in a few days on the blog.

XOXO,

Vicki
