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!

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.

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)

Swatches are as followed.

I apologize for the messiness of these swatches.

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!)
