Bare Minerals Bare Sensuals Palette Review and Swatches



Exposed, Fortune, Shazam, Cloud Nine, Lure, Persuasion, Catalyst

Hard to Get, Indulge, Waltz, Hot Spell, Mystify, Ensemble, Upgrade







Bare Minerals has a new Rose inspired palette called "Bare Sensuals".

I picked mine up at Ulta over a week ago and haven't put it down since.

It has 14 shades total including 3 new shades;  Exposed, Persuasion and Catalyst. 

The market is so saturated with natural and nude palettes nowadays, so this palette is a nice surprise for spring and summer.

I love Bare Minerals ready shadows and these are the same great quality as the duo's.

The shadows are very pigmented, smooth, blendable and easy to work with without a ton of fallout.

The palette itself is a sturdy plastic and has a large mirror, which is always a plus on any palettes.

The shadows are made in the U.S.and the brush is made in China.

It also has a eye chart to show how to achieve 3 different looks ( great for a beginner).

Retail is $45.00, which a great value.

I highly recommend you check this palette out.

XOXO,

Vicki

Becca Sunchaser Bronzer, Blush and Highlight Palette Review and Swatches

Ipanema Sunset, Apricot Blossom, Opal

Becca's Sunchaser palette was released last month, and I was pretty sure I was going skip it, that is until I saw it in store :)

The outside packaging has three different shades which actually represent the colors inside the palette.
A nice change from Becca's usual boring brown packaging.

The palette has three shades; Ipanema bronzer, Apricot Blossom blush and Opal skin finish. 

Becca has one of the best highlighter formulations on the market and the blush and bronzer are nice and smooth as well and all have great pigmentation.

I personally love all the colors in the palette they work great with my medium complexion.

Ipanema might be too warm for lighter skin tones but with light application it can still work.

Retail is $34.00

This is a nice compact size which makes it very travel friendly.

I got mine from Ulta.

Moon Play Cosmetics Stroboscope Powders in Vow and NYC Vamp Review and Swatches


I heard about Moon Play Cosmetics over a year ago and to be honest I never really thought much about the brand.

Fast forward to the past few months,  I kept hearing more buzz about Moon Play Cosmetics.

This piqued my curiosity and the fact they were having a sale also helped.





Can we just talk about the packaging for a minute.....HELLO it is so cute.

I love when any brand goes the extra mile to make adorable packaging.




I got these on a holiday special that came with a necklace and you got to choose two colors of the stroboscope powders.

The two color combo I wanted wasn't in the selection anymore.

So I emailed Moon Play customer and inquired about the colors I wanted.

They replied back super fast and told me that they did in fact have the colors I wanted and would send me an invoice if I was still interested.

Keep in mind they had no clue who I was, nor did they know I was a blogger. 

I am super impressed with their customer service :)  

Vow & NYC Vamp



So as you can see I got Vow and NYC Vamp!

Vow is a pink shimmer w gold in it and NYC Vamp is an amazing duo chrome color which looks iridescent and hologram like!

These powders and so finally milled yet they don't have a ton of fallout.

I highly recommend these products and the brand!

I believe they're having a Valentine's Day special coming soon, which I will be ordering the other two colors I don't have.

The jars are big so these last you a very long time.

You can use these for color correcting too.

Follow them on IG because they show you live demos and give you very helpful hints you can use, not to mention behind the scene stuff.

Can you tell I love this brand and Yes I bought these with my own funds :)



XOXO,

Vicki
