Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette – Review

You may have noticed that there’s a new palette in town. Though the hype is dying down a bit, there has been a lot of talk about the new Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette. This is the latest offering in Urban Decay’s infamous “Naked” line of supposedly neutral palettes, and I must say that I’m losing any sense of what significance there even is to the designation. This flamin’ hot palette takes neutrals to the pinky-orange side. Pinky-orange neutrals? I guess that’s a thing these days. Lol! Semi-mocking aside, you can create wearable looks with this palette, but it’s not going to be for everybody. I’m guessing if you’re not going to like it, you already know it…and are probably not reading this review! But before I give away the store, let’s talk about the palette some more.

The Grande Hotel Cafe from Too Faced for Holiday 2016!

We’re looking at another Too Faced Holiday Set today!!! 🙂 Today’s offering is called the Grande Hotel Café and is by far the cutest of this year’s Too Faced sets. What makes it so cute? It’s actually shaped like a little dollhouse! Complete with doors that open! Inside there’s an adorable coffee shop scene and it’s filled with makeup!!! 🙂 If there is one thing that Too Faced always gets right during the Holidays, it’s their packaging. So packaging gets an A+, but how ‘bout the products inside? Let’s bust open those doors and give them a good test! 😉

ColourPop Has Gone International! – Guide to All Things COLOURPOP!

Good news for all you International babes out there…ColourPop is now shipping overseas (minus Turkey & China)!!! I absolutely adore ColourPop, though I am constantly frustrated with their never ending roll outs of this and that’s (KathleenLights from YouTube literally just released another collab with them). The good news is that it’s pretty hard to truly break the bank with ColourPop and they have so many options – both in color choice and in type of products! If you’re looking for fantastic, fun, and affordable color cosmetics, you needn’t look further than ColourPop! I tried doing an Overview of ColourPop before, but the brand has grown so much even since then that I feel a need to update a bit. So, to help all of you who may be new to the brand, I’m going to try and give a bit of an overview of the brand’s offerings and mention some of my favorite formulas and colors. Try may be the key word here as there is always a lot to cover! 😉

The Sweet Peach Palette from Too Faced – Reviewed!


I almost hate to post this review right now because a) I just reviewed the Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly Palette here, and b) this palette is constantly selling out! But it’s just so good that I can’t not review it. What the hell am I referring to? My new love that is the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette of course! 🙂 That’s right. Too Faced has released yet another adorable and amazing eye shadow palette. While the Peanut Butter and Jelly Palette was an Ulta exclusive, the Sweet Peach Palette is available wherever Too Faced is sold…for a limited time. And like the Peanut Butter and Jelly Palette, the Sweet Peach Palette is also themed around food…a peach of course! I’ve already hinted at my feelings about the palette, but let’s dig a little deeper and find out why. 😉

Too Faced Peanut Butter & Jelly Palette – Review


Too Faced has been busy making cute things again. Is there any surprise? 🙂 Today I’m talking about the new Peanut Butter and Jelly Palette. That’s right. There’s an eyeshadow palette inspired by a sandwich! Technically it was inspired by the shade “Peanut Butter” from the Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette after the internet went crazy for it, but I like to think the sole inspiration was the childhood lunch box staple. So let’s get down and dirty in the PB&J and determine if this thing is more than just an insanely awesome concept, shall we? 🙂

Urban Decay | Gwen Stefani Eye Shadow Palette – Is It For You?

I feel like there has been a fair amount of buzz surrounding Urban Decay’s recent collab with Gwen Stefani. The Eye Shadow Palette seems to have divided people and I can see why. It’s absolutely stunning, but it’s not for everyone. One thing to keep in mind when considering this palette is that it was designed by Gwen for Gwen. In other words, if you love her style, you’ll probably love these shadows. However, if your makeup style is different, it may not be your cup of tea. Even if you adore Gwen’s signature look, this palette still may not be the right fit for you. This palette was designed with Gwen’s milky skin tone in mind, making some shades potentially impractical even for those with medium skin tones. I feel like there is a decent balance of warm and cool, but if lighter shades aren’t your thing (or don’t work with your coloring), this palette could be a big fat dud! Now that you have my thoughts in a nutshell, let’s take a closer look so you can decide if it’s something that you want to pass or grab!
