Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette And Too Faced Natural Matte Eyeshadow Palette

It was that time of the year again and I couldn't resist to pick up some more makeup products during the Sephora Sale!

Swatches :
Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette

The main reason I placed an order on the Sephora website as soon as the sale starts was to get the Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette. No regrets so far as the colors look even better in person. I haven't tried it yet but I did swatch them for the picture and they were REALLY creamy and pigmented!

Too Faced Natural Matte Eyeshadow Palette

The Too Faced Natural Matte Eyeshadow Palette was a total impulse buy. At first I wanted to try the Tarte Tartelette Palette but 1 it was sold out 2 it's limited edition and I try to avoid using too many of those in videos. When I saw this one I knew it would be a perfect replacement and again the colors look beautiful!

I cannot wait to create looks with these - what's your favorite?

For anyone wondering this year Birthday Gift is this beautiful set:

Sephora VIB Birthday Gift 2015

You get the Nars Satin lip pencil in Rikugien and the Nars Velvet Matte lip pencil in Cruella. If you are a VIB Rouge you also get the Nars Larger than life long wear eyeliner in Via Veneto!

To see everything I got :

NYX Matte Lipsticks - Mac Dupes And Which One Is The Perfect Shade For You!

NYX Matte Lipsticks (L-R) Euro Trash, Whipped Caviar, Natural, Tea Rose and Audrey
These lipsticks look so similar especially if you're looking to buy one of them online so I thought I would show you swatches and give you the perfect description!

Euro Trash: Brown neutral shade. It is the closest one to Mac Velvet Teddy but it's not quite brown enough to be a perfect dupe!

Whipped Caviar: My favorite of the bunch! It's a beautiful cool toned mauve nude. The perfect dupe for Mac Brave and extremely similar to Mac Faux. If you have a warm skin tone this could wash you out - check out the other ones!

Natural: Natural is a hint more pink than Whipped Caviar. It is probably the most universally flattering shade as it is pretty neutral!

Tea Rose: It has the most red and warmth compare to the previous two but I would still consider it a nude. It's a hint lighter than Mac Mehr but close enough that I would recommend it if you're looking for a dupe!

Audrey: If you feel like you can't pull of the 90's lip trend this is the most toned down pink of the NYX Matte lipsticks range!

Hope this was helpful!

Maybelline Rebel Bloom Lipsticks + Lip Swatches

It's finally starting to feel like Spring and that's when my makeup changes the most! I thought I would share some swatches on the Maybelline Rebel Bloom lipsticks!

These are sheer but buildable lipsticks that are really moisturizing. For that reason they only last around 3-4h on my lips which is still pretty reasonable!

My favorite shades are : Blushing Bud, Lilac Flush and Coral Burst

My least favorites : Barely Bloom (white base and emphasize dryness), Petal Pink (white base) Hibiscus Pop (Not as pigmented and doesn't last as well)

Maybelline Rebel Bloom lipsticks in Barely Bloom, Blushing Bud, Petal Pink and Hibiscus Pop

Maybelline Rebel Bloom lipsticks in Power Peony, Lilac Flush, Orchid Ecstasy and Rose Rush

Maybelline Rebel Bloom lipsticks in Coral Burst and Peach Poppy
