Colourpop give it to me straight palette

This is my FAVORITE  palette that colourpop has come out with and according to their website it’s theirs too!

All of my information will be taken from

Im going to stat this off by showing you the packaging front and back.

A few things to note about this palette:

  • Retails for $16
  • As of right now only sold on colourpops website
  • No Mirror
  • Shade names are printed underneath the shadows

Im going to post a little insert of what it says on the colourpop website about this palette then I’ll show you the inside of this beautiful baby.

We’ll be frank, this is our favorite palette yet. Full of warm coppers and rich, romantic mauves, it complements multiple skin tones and satisfies all your moods. Includes 7 buttery mattes and 5 intense metallics that can be used wet or dry.


Colourpop has some of the most pigmented shadows that I personally have ever tried, with that being said lets jump into the swatches.


First row:

  • Matter of Fact: pale pink
  • Up Front: metallic pale gold with a silvery sheen
  • Straight Up: metallic warm gold
  • BS: matte orangey brown


Second row:

  • Frank: matte warm brown
  • Candid: metallic bright copper
  • Forthright: neutral metallic rose
  • Downright: matte soft pinky beige


Third row:

  • Truth Hurts: matte peachy beige
  • Be Blunt: metallic rich raspberry
  • TMI: matte dusty burgundy
  • Actually…: matte deepened chocolate brown

I honestly feel like any regular palette from colourpop you get ( not including the sephora ones because I haven’t tried those yet) you won’t be disappointed. They’re Pigmented and buttery with minimal fall out. The shadows are definitely worth the price in my opinion. They have tons of different palettes to choose from if this one isn’t your cup of tea. If you need help choosing a palette, I’d be more than happy to help! Just leave me a comment down below or feel free to message me on instagram! @certified_bullshit.

Thank you all for sticking around to the bottom of this post and have an amazing rest of your day. xoxo

I want to finish this off by saying if you like the color selection of this palette, you need it!

Too faced I want kandee palette 

I was very hesitant on purchasing this palette. Why you may ask, because let’s be honest…. lately too faced hasn’t been doing so well.  I bit the bullet and went into Ulta and I swatched the palette and instantly fell in love. This palette has beautiful pigmentation and amazing neutral color selection…. if these colors speak to you, BUY IT! 

Some things to know:

  • This collection is Ulta exclusive 
  • Palette retails for $45
  • It’s actually called the candy eyes palette 

Let’s talk about the packaging. This palette comes in a tin that looks like an old school candy box. The back of the tin even features the shade named but with a candy picture… just like candy boxes do. The attention to detail is phenomenal on this packaging presentation. 

Once you open the tin you see a piece of thick waxy paper on top of the shadows (as if they were candy pieces). 

Now I know you’re sitting there like “SHOW US THE SHADOWS ALREADY” so let’s jump into it. 

Now onto the swatches 

Top to bottom:

  • Sparkling cider
  • Pastry
  • Sugared strawberry 
  • Cream puff
  • Sugar plum
  • Raspberry cocoa

Top to bottom:

  • Butterscotched
  • Sweet toffee 
  • Frosted pink
  • Hot chocolate 
  • Taupe berry
  • Licorice rope

Top to bottom:

  • Banana cream pie
  • Ice cream
  • Whipped cream

The swatches speak for themselves, Too Faced and Kandee Johnson did an amazing job on this palette and the entire I want kandee collection honestly. I would definitely recommend you pick this palette up! 

Pretty Vulgar Early Bird Palette

Hello beauties! Today we are going to be talking about a new brand at sephora called Pretty Vulgar. I don’t believe this brand is sold in the stores ( atleast not within 100 miles of me) so unfortunately when you cant see something in person you take a risk with buying the item. Im glad I took this risk. What drew me in was the darling packaging they have, reminds me of elegance. The attention to detail on the packaging is phenomenal.  Let me show you how beautiful this packaging is.

Here you have the front:


Here you have the back:


Some things to note about this palette:

  • $35
  • Cruelty-Free
  • Gluten-Free
  • Formulated without Parabens
  • Formulated without Sulfates
  • Formulated without Phthalates
  •  7 x 0.05 oz/ 1.4 g Eyeshadow
  •  5 x 0.04 oz/ 1.2 g Eyeshadow

Now let’s hop on to the inside of this baby!


The colors are what really drew me in, they’re beautiful. These are deffinitly my type of shades! If these aren’t your cup of tea they have two other palettes if you’re loving the packaging! Let’s talk about the quality though… all in all I really do like this palette, but there are some misses in the bunch. Let’s take a look at the swatches.


Top to Bottom:

  • Tweet
  • Wink
  • Chirp
  • Rise
  • Shine
  • Ruffled


Top to Bottom:

  • Unruffled
  • Nest Egg
  • True Colors
  • Victory
  • Conquer
  • Unveil

If we look at the first photo tweet barely showed up but i’m thinking it was because it’s the same color as my skin tone. If we look at the second photo Nest Egg and Victory basically look like the same color, Nest egg is just a tad lighter so we could have done some variation there. Unveil didn’t swatch bad, but it didn’t swatch good either, However I do feel it will apply nicely on the lids. I do think the price point is a bit up there though. These shadows aren’t the most buttery but I do feel they will get the job done and make some beautiful looks! I totally recommend checking out some of their products if you’re a sucker for packaging.

Jeffree Star Androgyny palette

Happy 4th of July Beauties! You already know what we are going to be talking about today as I’m sure you’ve read the title. Let’s jump right into some key things to know about this palette.

  • Retails for $45
  • Available for purchase on Jeffree’s website and Beautylish (In the us)
  • Vegan
  • Cruelty free

This is my first Jeffree star eyeshadow palette and dare I say Im in love. I already knew he could make a killer liquid lipstick but I wasn’t quite sure what to except with his eyeshadows. They’re pigmented, buttery, and fabulous variety of colors. If you’re into the colors in the palette, I would totally say its worth it.

Here is the outside packaging.


And here is the inside!


Beautiful, I know. Im dying just looking at the picture!

Now looking at shadows in the pan isn’t going to win everyone over so let me show you swatches.

First row:


From top to bottom

  • Safe Word
  • Charm
  • Deja Vu
  • Dominatrix

Second row:


From top to bottom

  • Androgyny
  • Fetish
  • Military
  • Poison
  • Swallow

Now im sure you’re looking at the last two swatches thinking they are the same color, but I can assure you they are not. Swallow is darker in tone than Poison. With the colors in this palette you could complete any look you’d think of! This palette is definitely a must have if these are your kind of shades!

Lorac Unzipped Palette

I know this palette isn’t anywhere near new, but it’s new to me. I’ve been eyeing up this palette for a long time…. my friend even suggested I get it because it’s “so me”.  I hesitated because of the fact that I already had so many palettes so did I really need another one? Once I found out it was going to be a part of ulta’s 21 days of beauty sale I knew I definitely needed another palette!

A few things to note about this palette:

  • total net wt .39oz/11.2g
  • $42 (But you can use ebates to get cash back)

The link provided is my person ebates referral link, when you sign up through my link you’ll get a free $10 to start your cashback savings!

Let me show you the unique packaging of this palette, it’s called the unzipped so what better then a zipper on it?


I know, I know…. you’re here for the inside!


Let me just say that in my opinion this is the most beautiful rosy-toned eyeshadow palette I have ever had the honor to lay my eyes upon.

Swatches are as followed.


Top to bottom:

  • Undercover
  • Unbelievable
  • Unattainable
  • Unconditional
  • Unbridled


I apologize for the messiness of these swatches.


Top to bottom:

  • Undiscovered
  • Unreal
  • Uncensored
  • Unspoken
  • Untamed

I am loving these shadows! I personally think that it is worth the $42 price point. The blendability of the shadows, the one swipe pigmentation…what more could you ask for. If you’re into rosy-toned shadows you need to run out and pick this up! (or purchase it online using ebates to get cash back!)
