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:

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

pveb5

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.

Carli Bybel Deluxe Edition

Hello Beauty lovers!

Let’s start off as usual with a few things to note about this palette.

  • price is $22.50
  • Sold at ulta
  • Sold on bh cosmetics website
  • Sold on Carli’s website  ( https://pranavabeauty.com/ )
  • It’s taking the place of the original palette ( aka that one is retiring).

This palettes packaging is basically the same as the original just larger. Still has the Cute little pink penguin on the top and Carli’s adorable quote ( “Aspire to Inspire” ) on the inside . For those of you have never seen it I have included pictures.

Now this palette says that it has highlighters as well as eye shadows, Only two of the highlighters would actually work on my skin tone….But the good new is that means this palette is friendly for any complexion! In other words go buy it right now!

I just wanted to put out there that this is the first bh cosmetics palette I have ever purchased and I am blown away! I always thought and heard that because they were so cheap that the quality was lacking, which may have been the case back then but it surely is not the case now! I expected okay pigmentation and normal shadow consistency….NOPE. I got pure butter and amazing pigmentation. I was in complete and utter shock. If these colors speak to you, you need this palette.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed our little chat today!

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)

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.

lu3

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!)
