  • MUFE 15 Artist Shadow Palette

Review: Carlibybel Palette by BH Cosmetics

I got this beauty a couple of days ago in the mail and was so excited to swatch and try the eyeshadows and highlighters out. I've been a fan of Carli and BH Cosmetics for awhile now and was so happy to hear that they were doing a collab. I did stay up on launch day to get my hands on the palette and am happy that I was able to grab one. First off the colours are gorgeous! Loves me some neutral shades. The highlights have to be my favourite of this palette as they are all super pigmented and amazing! You get 10 eyeshadows and 4 highlights in this palette for a great price. I got mine for $12.50 which was the launch price, I am not sure if the price will change any time soon as the palette is currently out of stock but you can submit your email address to be notified when it comes back in stock at BH Cosmetics.

If you would like to see swatches of all the eyeshadows and highlighters they can be found after the jump below. The eyeshadows were all quite creamy and applied well. I thought some of the darker shades were just a tad bit patchy and needed a couple of application to really stand out but they were blendable and lovely for the price of this palette. As I noted above the highlights were my fave! They applied so well with one swipe and were super pigmented.

Overall, this palette is definitely awesome with a price that is equally as awesome! The shades are great for the fall season too as it has some purples and warm tones. Have you guys tried this palette out or have plans to purchase? I would love to hear about your experiences with this palette!

SL Missglam Brushes

I purchased these beautiful brushes a few weeks ago and I absolutely love them! A little about my ordering experience: It was great! The order system was smooth and I received my pretty package a couple of days after with a cute hand written note (Thank you Stephanie!)

The brushes are gorgeous and very well made. They are also super soft and really great to work with. I love the soft pink color of the brushes and also the cute bling detailing on the ferrel. Pink and bling are a two of my faves so the combo on these brushes are perfect!

Overall, I would definitely recommend these pretty brushes. They are great at applying powder, cream and liquid make up. I love using the powder brush for blush & bronzer :)

Collective Sephora & MAC Haul

For the past couple of months I have been picking up some items here and there from MAC and Sephora. The haul you see here comes from a few trips to MAC / Sephora & Online. First off the MAC items:

  • MAC fix + in the Yuzu scent - I really wanted the rose or coconut one but they were sold out at both MAC stores by my house :(
  • MAC lipsticks in Brave, Whirl, Men like mystery, D for Danger, and Dangerous - do you see a theme here? LOL
  • MAC Liners in Edge to Edge, Beet, Redd & Magenta - I went a little liner crazy!
  • MAC Extra Dimension Shadows in A Naturual Flirt & Amorous Alloy

And now on to the Sephora Haul. I only picked up a couple of items:

  • Sephora Lip Cream Stain in Marvellous Mauve - I heard this was a dupe for Patina or Lolita?
  • Kat Von D Shade + Light Palette
  • Kat Von D Shade + Light Palette Eye
  • Becca Champagne Pop Highlight - YES! Becca's collab with the beautiful Jaclyn Hill! I refreshed my browser in what felt like a million times until it finally came in stock on the Sephora Canada site... It was worth it :)
And that are all the items I have purchased in the past few months from Sephora and MAC. My list of loves and wants is still growing but I am holding myself back...

What are on your guys' wishlists? Any upcoming launches you are excited for? Let me know!

Boxing Day 2014 Sephora Haul

Hello lovely people! First off I would like to say a very Happy New Year to everyone. I can't believe that we are already in the second week of 2015! I am sorry for not blogging that much recently, I have just been catching up on some items on my to-do list and just enjoying the Holidays with my friends and family. I hope you all had a great Holiday as well.

Over the break I did do some shopping, nothing too crazy but of course I had to grab some items from Sephora. During Boxing Day (December 26th) Sephora had some items on sale in store for $12 each. I personally thought they were quite the steal so I had to grab some items. Here is what I got:

  • Kat Von D Esperanza Palette
  • Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Color in Bikini Pink
  • Urban Decay Naked Gloss in Lovechild
  • Urban Decay Super Saturated Lip Color in Lovechild (guess I really liked Lovechild...)
  • Butter London Nailpolish in Yummy Mummy (My first Butter London nailpolish!)
  • Smashbox Limitless Long Wear Lip Gloss in For Keeps
And that is all that I got during Boxing Day at Sephora. Would love to hear what you guys purchased over the holidays and if you have any recommendations. My next post might be some of my fave products from 2014 but I don't know if I'm a little late for that since it is already the second week of January :P Let me know what you guys want to see next!
