*~*What is your Zodiac Sign??*~*

Hey Y’ALL

I hope everyone is doing well! It is Hump Day, I think we all can get over the hump day of the week to make it to the weekend.

Y’all may be confused about the title and thinking, what could this post be about?? Well…it is another eyeshadow palette review. Of course, I have a weakness for eyeshadows, y’all should know that by now, lol.

~*BH Cosmetic: Zodiac Eyeshadow Palette*~

Price: $21.99

This palette has been out for awhile, but because I own 3 other BH Cosmetic baked eyeshadow palettes, at the time I didn’t think I needed this. Well, of course I gave it. I bought this back in March and I have been playing with it every since. I just haven’t gotten around doing my review on this palette.

I LOVE this palette, you can do so many looks with it. It has 25 eyeshadow colors and it has one highlighter. It has baked eyeshadows, plus it has mattes to go with the baked eyeshadows. You can do a complete eye look with this palette. The downside is, the size. It is so big, it isn’t travel friendly. Plus, the mirror is really tiny on it. I would highly recommend this palette. I think the Zodiac palette is a must have in anyone’s eyeshadow collection.

I also love the colors in this palette. They blend so well with each other. I like that you can mix and match different colors in this palette. I have never wore the highlight, as an highlight, but I do wear it as an inner corner highlight on my eyes.

Have y’all seen this palette before? What are y’alls thoughts on this palette?

~Milani Eyeshadow Review~

Hey Y’ALL

I hope everyone has had a wonderful Wednesday. Today was a lazy day for me. I took a nap this morning because I couldn’t get going at all. I just felt blah today.

Anyways, this is a review I have been wanting to do forever. I have had this for a couple of months and they were really hard to find in my Wal-Mart. These palettes were the first eyeshadows I have ever used from Milani, so I cannot compare them to their smaller eyeshadow palettes that they have.

Both of these palettes are $14.97 each @ Wal-Mart or you can get them on the Milani website for $19.99 each. The each have 12 eyeshadow colors in each palette.

*~Milani Bold Obsessions Palette~*

img_7973

This palette contains both matte and shimmers in them. The shimmers are beautiful, but they do have fall out. The mattes don’t have nearly as much fall out in the palette as the shimmers do. I really do like this palette and I think it is worth the Wal-Mart price. I couldn’t imagine paying Milani’s price on their website for it.

*~ Milani Mosted Loved Mattes~*

img_7972

This palette came out at the right time. When I bought this palette I was looking for an all matte palette. This is a great palette also. The colors blend great together and they also work great with the colors in the other palette. This one is also worth the money.

I really love these palettes. They are travel size, you can make several different eyeshadow looks with these, and they also have a nice mirror in them. Both palettes are worth the money.

I think Milani makes great products and once again they have nailed it.

Which Milani products do y’all use? Have y’all tried these palettes?

*~BH Cosmetics: Glam Reflection Collection~*

Hey Y’ALL

Happy Saturday everyone. I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend. Our town is having Back to the Strip tonight. There is were everyone rides the strip for Meals on Wheels. It’s a huge event yearly here. Meals on Wheels help provides healthy meals each day for the seniors and other people in our community. People ride the strip and drop of food for the cause. We love going to getting my baby (my car) all cleaned up to go. They have a car show before hand, which we will miss this year because of softball practice (pending because of the weather), so we already bought our shirts. I am excited!

I have to be honest, I have been wanting to do this review for a month for y’all, but I wanted to test each of these palettes out to give my honest review on these palettes.

The BH Cosmetics Glam Reflection collection has 4 different eyeshadow palettes (so far, I don’t know if they are coming out with more). Each palette has 15 shades and the palettes go together well with each other. These palettes are:

  • Vegan
  • Gluten Free
  • Allergy Free
  • Dermatologist Tested

*Glam Reflection: L’amour*

Price: $15.99 @ BH Cosmetics

img_7874

I think this palette would be perfect for Valentine’s day. It has those cranberry colors and it also has those dark colors in it as well.

*Glam Reflection: Rose*

Price: $15.99 @ BH Cosmetics

img_7875

This palette as mostly mattes, which are great. They say it’s romantic meets ravishing, but to me this is a natural palette the L’amour has that more romantic feel to it.

*Glam Reflection: Smoke*

Price: $15.99 @ BH Cosmetics

img_7873

I was sad when I first opened it. My eyeshadows were shattered! BH Cosmetics did send me another one though. For some smokey eyes this would be your palette. I love the light blue shimmer shade in this one.

*Glam Reflections: Gilded*

Price: $15.99 @ BH Coemetics

img_7876

I think out of all 4 of these palettes, this one is my least favorite. When I look at this palette my first thought it….that pink doesn’t look like it belongs in this palette at all

~My Thoughts~

I love BH Cosmetics eyeshadows, I buy quite a bit from the company, but I was really let down in the quality of the palette itself, not the eyeshadows because the eyeshadows are great, but how the palette is made. As I mentioned my Smoke palette came in and my eyeshadows were shattered, but on the other palettes when I went to swatch the colors the pans move around, like they will fall out eventually. The quality of the eyeshadows are great, they have great pigment. I do wear glitter glue under the shimmers, but I wear that under all of my shimmer shades to make sure they stay in place. These also didn’t have any WOW colors, like OMG I must have that color. We all probably have these same colors somewhere in our collection. I do like that these are blend able, they have a nice size mirror, and they are travel size (but honestly with how some of the pans move, I wouldn’t travel with them). I could of lived without these palettes. Also, if you want to buy these palettes, BH Cosmetics is always have a different sale daily it seems like. I ended up getting mine for less than $10 each.

What eyeshadows palettes are a must buy for y’all? Do y’all buy from BH Cosmetics?

~*~Cream Eyeshadows…Why are they the best?~*~

Hey Y’all

It’s Friday!! We have all once again survived the week. Today I am going to paint my living room…fun fun. I am going to go with a rustic look because honestly that is what our decor is, but it doesn’t match the paint on the wall. It is like a barney purple and I can no longer look at it.

Today, I wanted talk about cream eyeshadows and why they are the best. Honestly, a lot of people do not know, but cream eyeshadows can be used for more than just eyeshadow.

I only own Revlon Colorstay cream eyeshadows, one Maybelline color tattoo eyeshadow, and some ELF cream eyeshadows. I do not have many, but what I have I use weekly.

img_7334

What I love about the Cream Eyeshadow I use!

  • Doesn’t crease
  • Blends well with each other
  • Last All Day
  • Easy and fast application

I cannot speak for other cream eyeshadows, but the ones I use are amazing. Revlon has some great colors for spring and you can make a very easy Easter look. I like that if I am in a hurry I can just throw on some cream eyeshadow and go. It does not take long at all.

Cream eyeshadows don’t only  have to be used for just eyeshadow. I know I use them for a lot more.

What I use Cream Eyeshadow for!

  • Base for other eyeshadows: makes them last longer and it also makes the colors pop
  • Brow Highlight
  • Inner Corner Highlight

If I want my eyeshadows to last longer I will use a cream eyeshadow on top of my eye primer to help my eyeshadows, especially if it is one I want to wear, but I know it does not last that long.

Do y’all use cream eyeshadows? What cream eyeshadows do y’all use?

Thanks for reading 🙂

*~Wet n Wild Eyeshadows (Part:2)~*

Hey Y’all

If you are reading this, it seems like you have survived this week also. It has been a long week, but it is Thursday, which means tomorrow is finally Friday.

Monday I made a post about Wet n Wild Eyeshadows (Part:1) *~Wet n Wild Eyeshadows (Part: 1)~*. I reviewed their 10 pan palettes. Today, I will be reviewing their eyeshadow quads. I will apologize right now, I do not have all of them. I am missing one of them. My local Walgreens only have 4 of the  (I thought I had 5, but after double checking I didn’t).

Color Icon Eyeshadow Quads

Price: $2.99 @ Wet n Wild

There are 6 different quads, but like I said I only have 4.

Lights Out

img_7155

This would be a great palette to do a smokey eye with. I am not into do my whole eye in a dark color, so I wouldn’t be grabbing this quad a lot. I do like the brow bone highlight in it and the gray shimmer color in it.

Hooked on Vinyl

img_7157

This has to be my favorite quad of them all, just because of the color combo.

Silent Treatment

img_7156

This is one of the quads that they reformulated. This is my least favorite one. I am not digging the colors all that much. I am just blah over this quad.

Sweet As Candy

img_7154

This is the quad I have used the most. I already had the old one of this and you can really tell that they reformulated it just by looking at the colors. One the pink shade, I do spray it with setting spray for it to give me the color pay off that I do want.

My thoughts

I kinda regret buying these quads, not that they aren’t good, I just feel that the 10 pan palettes are better. You get more product for your money.

What are y’all thoughts on the new quads? I think it is great that they finally added a transition color, but like I said I like the 10 pans better.

**Urban Decay: Afterdark Palette**

Hey Y’all

It is Wednesday. We have made it half way through the week. I hope y’all are doing great. It is almost the weekend, so just hang on a lil bit longer.

Today I am going to review another Urban Decay eyeshadow palette. It is the Afterdark palette. It has been out for some time, but I ended up getting it on sale (of course).

Urban Decay Afterdark Palette

Price: $49 on Urban Decay Website

(You can get the palette $39 on sale right now)

 

I love Urban Decay eyeshadows. Anytime I find one of them on sale that I want, I get excited. I hate paying full price for anything. This palette did not disappoint. I love the bright colors in this palette. The colors are amazing. They feel so soft and go on so smooth.

The downside to this palette is that there is no matte shades in it. So you have to pair it with other eyeshadows for a transition shade.

I would highly recommend this palette. Even at the sale price they have right now for $39, I would recommend it. These eyeshadows are going to last all day for you and keep their color.

What Urban Decay palettes do y’all have, that I should buy?

Thanks for reading :),

*~Wet n Wild Eyeshadows (Part: 1)~*

Hey Y’all

I hope everyone had a great weekend. It is officially Monday :(. It is spring break here and it is going to be a busy week. We also had a very busy weekend here.

As many of y’all may know Wet n Wild came out with new eyeshadow palettes a couple of months ago. Some of them are not new shades, just reformulated. I have decided to break the review up into 2 parts, if not this would be a very long review. Today I want to focus on their palettes that have 10 different colors in them.

Color Icon Eyeshadow 10 Pan Palette

Price: $4.99 @ Wet n Wild

 

 

There are 4 different 10 pan palettes

Nude Awakening

img_7166

This would be their nude palette of the 4. These are great colors and they have great transition shade. The shimmer shades you will have to spray them with setting spray or wet them for them to give the color pay off. They still show up without spraying them, but they are not that bright.

Rose in the Air

img_7165

This is the palette I used to do my Valentine’s Day look (Valentine’s Day Makeup Look (All Drugstore) 🙂). These are great colors also. This is one of my favorite ones, I love the dark pink shade in this palette. I also pick up this palette a lot if I need a transition color for an eye look. If I am using a palette without one I grab this one because of the top transition shade.

Comfort Zone

img_7163

This palette is my least favorite. This is all shimmer shades, minus the two transition colors. I feel if I wanted to make a full eye look, I would have to grab another eyeshadow palette, unless I put a shimmer shade all over the lid. Just like the other shimmers in the rest of the palettes, the light shimmer shades have to be wet to get the color pay off.

Not a Basic Peach

img_7164I feel that this palette is just so colorful. I look at this palette and I think Spring time. It would be a great palette to do an Easter look with. The down side to this palette, the top transition shade, if you are pale like me it does not show up at all.

My Thoughts

I would highly recommend these palettes. Yes, the light shimmer shades you have to spray with a setting spray to get a color pay off, but what do you expect with a drugstore eyeshadow palette. You can make many looks with one palette. I feel that there is a palette for every season. Another thing I love about these is, they are travel friendly. I don’t like to travel with huge eyeshadow palettes are expensive ones and these are travel friendly. If something ends up broke, you are just out of $5.

This is the look I came up with using all of the 4 palettes. I took colors from each one. Also, I am wearing the Revlon foundation again (testing it out even more ~* Revlon Photoready insta-filter Foundation*~)

Have y’all tried these palettes? What are y’all thoughts?

~Favorite BH Cosmetics Eyeshadows~

Hey Y’all!!

Happy St. Patricks Day!! I hope everyone is having a great day. Today we have a busy day ahead of us. We have our nieces birthday party to go to and then we are going to go hang out with some friends (much well needed time).

I love eyeshadow, if y’all can’t tell, lol. It is the one item I review most on my blog. Today I want to share with y’all my favorite eyeshadows from BH cosmetics. Which is a great brand, if y’all haven’t checked them out, then y’all need to. Great quality items for drugstore price.

img_7191

It is their baked eyeshadow palettes. When I first found these I just HAD to have them. They colors were amazing. I didn’t own no other baked eyeshadows at the time and come to think about it, these are the only baked eyeshadows I do own. They have 3, 18 color palettes and they each revolve around the same theme..space. I like that each palette is different with their colors though. With these 3 palettes you are set with all the season colors. What I love about baked eyeshadows it that, you can use them dry or if you really want the eyeshadow to pop you can use them wet.

Price: 15.99 each (BH cosmetics is always having daily sales, you can get them cheaper)

http://www.bhcosmetics.com/

Galaxy Chic

This is the palette that has soft bright colors in it, with some darker colors to make a smokey eye look. When I found these palettes I seen this one first and I feel in love. They are so soft and go on like great.

Supernova

Supernova has mainly darker shades. There is one color in here that is not good for me (hopefully I just got a bad one). It is the solver color on the second row, the second color. It is just grainy feeling and you can hardly get any color out of it.

Solar Flare

Solar Flare is probably my least favorite of these 3, but I still love it. When I look at this palette I think fall. It has mainly your gold colors in it.

I highly recommend these palettes if you like baked eyeshadows. You can do a day time or night time look with everyone of these palettes. Like I said before BH cosmetics are always having a sale, check daily and you can get these cheaper. Sometimes they have free shipping or if you spend a certain amount you get a free gift, which is usually another one of their eyeshadow palettes.

What products do y’all like from BH cosmetics? Have y’all tried these eyeshadows? Please let me know what y’all think.

~Favorite Drugstore Eyeshadow~

Hey Y’all

I hope everyone is having a great weekend I know here in good ole Tennessee the weather is starting to warm up. Spring is just right around the corner. Once I get done writing this post for y’all and get ready, we are going for a nice walk at the park.

I mentioned in my drugstore beauty favorites (** Favorite DRUGSTORE Beauty Products**) that I would make a post just for my favorite drugstore eyeshadow….well here it is.

L’Oreal Infallible 24 HR Eyeshadow

Price: $6.97 @ Wal-Mart

img_7048

I almost own the whole collection because I LOVE them so so much!! It started off with me just getting the Amber Rush color because I seen someone review it and it was so pretty. I had to have it. After a while my collection grew and grew and some of the colors I was finding actually on sale at my local Wal-mart.

Why do I LOVE them so much?

It is rare to find a drugstore eyeshadow that is:

  1. Pigmented
  2. Stays put all day long
  3. Doesn’t fade throughout the day

I know when I wear these eyeshadows that they are not going anywhere on my eyes at all. They are very soft. You can apply with a brush, but I find it easier to apply them with your finger.

L’Oreal Claims on thee Infallible Eyeshadows

  • 24 HR wear
  • Fade proof
  • Waterproof
  • Crease Resistant

L’Oreal states on their website that they have a velvety formula, intense, maximized color, and that they are a powder-cream texture.

I am sorry I have so many I cannot do swatches of them all. I will be using some in some eyeshadow looks I am planing on posting.

I would highly recommend these to anyone. Yes, they are a lil expensive just for one, but they are so worth it. They have a a decent color range. You might be able to find some on sale like I did. I got some for $3.00 I believe at Wal-Mart.

Have y’all used these eyeshadows before? If so what are y’alls thoughts?

What are y’alls favorite drugstore eyeshadows?

~*Almay Eyeshadow Squad*~

Hey Y’all!!

I hope everyone is doing well.

I have to be honest with y’all, I debated for a week about doing this eyeshadow review for y’all. As you can tell I have decided to do it because I want to give y’all my honest opinion about products. I don’t ever set out to do a bad review on products. All the products I am reviewing is something, I personally wanted to try and I have bought it with my own money. With that said lets get on with this review.

img_7008

The Almay Eyeshadow Squads are new. There are 15 colors and I got to get 12 of them from Walgreens online (they don’t sale all 15 Online and my local Walgreens don’t sell Almay in stores). I was super excited because with coupons and Walgreen points, I basically got these free (Thank God!!). They are $6.99 at Walgreens or you can pay $4.97 at Wal-Mart.

img_7009

Not only was I excited because I did get these cheap, I was excited to try them also.  In one squad there is a : matte, satin, glitter, and metallic shade in one. Well, to be point blank these are awful!! There won’t be any swatches of these eyeshadows in this review because some of them when you swatch them, don’t even show up. The matte shades in all of these I have are awful. There is hardly any pigment. I still had hope for them because something I did notice in the squads when I did try to swatch them was the glitter shade in almost all of them was swatching great……but this morning when I went to go do an eye look with these I was let down. I had to lay down glitter glue on my eye for the pigment to even show up on my eyelid. Honestly, I am not even sharing my eye look because it is that awful, lol.

With everything said, I would not recommend these at all. They are not worth the money. There are several other drugstore eyeshadows that are much better for the same price or even cheaper. I will be donating these to my niece or another little girl that just plays with makeup.
