Swatch Review: Affordable Maybelline “The Blushed Nudes” Palette

So even after my somewhat negative review last night on the maybelline “The Nudes” Palette, i still picked this up in hopes of being more impressed. Glancing over this palette, some of the colors sold me right away. Some beautiful rosey gold shades, and a matte black with a black cherry like shimmer. So i decided to review it for you all and give you my opinion!

image

The first thing i noticed when swatching/playing around with these shadows was:

  1. They seem to have a much nicer texture than the other “The Nudes” palette. They feel much softer to the touch, the other palette’s shadows almost seemed dry.
  2. The shimmer formula seems like it applies much better, it looks very nice applied to a primed eyelid.
  3. I think their color choices throughout the palette really compliment each other. They can be used with each other and many other nude eyeshadows you may already own.

image

The very last color on the bottom right was my absolute favorite, it looked like a very deep dramatic burnt reddish black because of all the black cherry/gold colored shimmer in it, and then i swatched it. 😦 It simply did not apply nearly as well as the other shimmer colors, the sparkles fell out and left me with a plain matte black eyeshadow. Β I think it was because it wasn’t so much shimmer, it was more like sparkle flake. This was the only shadow with a seemingly different formula than the other shimmer shades.

Now let me show you some swatch samples!

I loved all of these colors except for my original favorite, the black. So for the price & quality, i would probably buy this palette again when i start running low on these shadows. I may not be using the hell out of all of them, but i can see myself using more than half of them often. These are perfect colors for a romantic date night, any night on the town, even a day on the town, or you could put together a nice look for a wedding/bachelorette party as well. If you are a makeup artist or do freelance work, picking up a few of these to keep with your supplies would be a great idea since these colors can be used for many occasions/events. I’d say go try one out for yourself ladies! For $10.00 it’s worth giving it a chance. ❀

Quick Review: Nars Liquid Gold Face

I am sure many of you are big fans of NARS cosmetics just like I am. From the sleek modern packaging to the names that make you giggle and of course the top notch products, NARS has won a special place in my makeup drawers ❀ and remains one of my top brand choices. Today, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on one of their newer arrivals.. The NARS Liquid Gold Face Set. Which includes a mini Larger Than Life lip gloss in Gold Digger, A full size Hot Sand Illuminator, and a mini South Beach multiple. Now i don’t usually go for their boxes that include a few samples & maybe one or two full size products, but a few things that i noticed immediatley when i came across this set was that…

1. Everything gold intrigues me and calls out to me to purchase it and take it home.

2. I am currently obsessed with NARS illuminators, but i have not tried the Hot Sand. They have so many different shades ranging in nude/pink/tans. One of their most popular colors being “Orgasm.” (Shown below.)

image

3. I mean gold lipgloss? I loved the idea of my lips looking like i just kissed a pool of liquid gold. (“Gold Digger” lip gloss shown below)

image

image

And with those quick observations i picked this set up for myself and a few different illuminators to keep with my freelancing supplies. This one retails at about $45.00 USD. When purchasing this set i noticed most of the colors appeared very gold on the website, but upon arrival each product had a very nice rosey/peachy undertone. Which i happen to love. Take note that the lip gloss, is a very peachy-gold shimmer color. The illuminator, is more of a lighter peachy-champagne, and the south beach multiple is more of a light shimmer apricot/bronze. Overall the colors in this set are not pureΒ gold, but i personally feel it does make each one of these products more wearable for everyday/daytime use. Some tips for all you considering trying out this set or maybe one of the products inside the set, I found that applying a nude/peach matte lipstick underneath and finishing it with the “Gold Digger” gloss is lovely, and the most efficient way to apply the illuminator is with a beauty blending sponge. The multiple can be used as either a cream blush or bronzer, i suggest warming the product up before application just simply by swatching a small amount on the back of your hand, and then dabbing (NOT a heavy stroke) in the areas you want the color to be applied. (“South Beach” multiple shown below)

image

They have other shades of multiples that are more for highlighting/blush but the color “South Beach” in particular is pretty dark. It would really depend on your skin tone as to what you could really use this for. I have repurchased all of the full size products that came in this set since i happen to love them so much! Go head over to NARS website and try one out for yourself ladies!
