Colourpop Uh-Huh Honey Palette Review

Review

Listen, I love eyeshadow and palettes. A LOT. Some might say I have a problem, but there are worse problems to have really. I recently hauled a bunch of new palettes, and I’m promising myself that along with those, it’s time to get up some reviews that have been on the backburner for far too long! I’m telling myself that reviewing the palettes on my blog will help offset all of the new ones I buy (it makes sense to me, okay, let me have this).

I definitely let my eyeshadow palette reviews slip a little bit, and want to get back into them more regularly. They can definitely be more “intimidating” to write since they take more work, but I’m working on tackling them one chunk at a time in order to get them out in a more timely fashion in the future. This is first and foremost a nail blog, so I’m still nailing (sorry) down the makeup review routine!

Now let’s talk about this palette! This one has been on the backburner far too long, and it’s about time I get it up!

This is an “older” palette now by Colourpop standards, but I’m working on not letting that stop me from reviewing things! There’s such a focus on having the newest things constantly, I think it’s good to go back and talk about things that I still have and like even if they’re not “new”. This is a permanent palette, and you can still buy it on the Colourpop website. I know I do review a lot of limited edition things, but I do like talking about permanent buys as well – you don’t have to rush out to buy it and you can really think about your decision and whether it’ll fit into your collection. I’m always just trying to help make more informed decisions for purchases, and overall, it all depends on your preferences!

Alright onto the palette. This is the ‘Uh Huh Honey’ palette from Colourpop and it’s one of the 9 pan palettes from their monochromatic series. Like I said, it’s a lil “older” now, but still available, and who doesn’t love yellow all year round! I love wearing this palette with a deep burgundy red lip, so it’s still perfect for the upcoming winter. It retails for $12 and is their traditional square plastic packaging like the others.

Like all other eyeshadow palette reviews, I have swatches, eye looks and then the review! You can skip to any part of it with the links above. Let’s get into it!

Colourpop Sweet Talk Palette

Jump to Eye Looks
Jump to Review

The Colourpop extravaganza continues! What if I just turned this blog into reviewing Colourpop products? Honestly, that would be a full time job all on its own. I hope you guys have been loving the addition of more consistent makeup reviews because I’ve been LOVING THEM. I feel like I’m really getting to know and use the palettes I’m bringing into my collection, and I’m passing on information I get from purchases to you guys! It’s been really fun, and I can’t wait to continue it! (But don’t worry, the nail polish will always be a priority. I still got a lot of that to talk about as well.)

This week’s palette is the Sweet Talk palette! This is a neutral palette with a strong peachy tones, and I surprised myself with how much I ended up wanting this. Is that a neutral phase I smell coming? I mean, I’m loving neutral eyes more and more as I’m challenging myself to wear more of my bright lip colors! But heck to it, I’ll wear colorful eyes AND lips, I can’t be stopped. I love all eyeshadow, and don’t discriminate between colorful shades and neutrals, there’s plenty to love with both.

Like I said, this is the ‘Sweet Talk’ palette and it retails for $18. It’s a couple dollars more than their regular 12 pan palettes, as it contains 2 pressed glitters and their new Super Shock shade. As always, we’ll look at swatches, eye looks and then a full review! (You can always skip right to the review with the link above as well).

Colourpop Main Squeeze Palette Review

Jump to Review

I’m going to say Sorry, NOT SORRY, for the amount of Colourpop that will be coming on these Makeup Sunday posts. I’ve just been loving all of their products and releases lately, and they’re all so affordable, it’s so easy to just make another order. I’ve picked up a lot of their new palettes lately, and it’s all just made me excited about new makeup again. This is an affordable makeup blog always, and Colourpop just fits right into that, while coming out with such unique and fun things.

And this is the first of a series of Colourpop palette reviews! I got a stack of them, and this palette was the first one I knew I had to play with.

This is the Main Squeeze palette, and it’s the red addition to Colourpop’s monochromatic palette series. It’s one of their 9 pan smaller square palettes.

LA Girl Haute Haute Heat Eyeshadow Palette in ‘Aloha Vibes’

Jump to:
Eye Looks
Review

Heyoooo it’s Makeup Sundays! Just like with Comparison Swatch Saturdays that I talked about in my last post, I’m trying to get on more organized and on more of a schedule for this blog. I’m not fully committing yet, and I know there will times and events I’ll have to move the schedule around, but let’s see how it sticks.

This blog will always be primarily nail polish, but as I’ve said before, I also love makeup just as much as nail polish. Since I’m constantly buying it as well as polish, I want to start posting about it more. I’m buying it anyways, so I might as well tell others how I feel about it! That’s why I’m bringing in Makeup Sundays, where I’m hoping to post just about makeup – if that’s not your thing, there will still be tons of nail reviews throughout the rest of the week. I only buy and review affordable makeup – whether that’s mainstream or indie. There’s so much good makeup out there that won’t break the bank, and that’s what I want to stick with!

As always let’s get right into the review already.

Today, we’re talking about the LA Girl Haute Heat palette! When this bad boy was teased and dropped, I was immediately intrigued. I love LA Girl for their foundation and eyeliners, and this palette looked unlike anything they had released so far, so I knew I had to try it. There are 2 different palettes. We’re talking about the on in ‘Aloha Vibes’, which has more blues and purples. They also have one called ‘Vacay Everyday’ that has rosier and warmer toned shades. They also have a highlighter palette in this same packaging.

This retails for $18 on the LA Girl website or $15 in store at CVS. I wasn’t expecting to find it at my local CVS, but I walked in one day and they had a full display of them. So there’s a chance it’s still up there. (You can see a full store list that stocks them here). They were available on Ulta’s website, but seem to have sold out there. I believe they’re still in Ulta stores though – and you can still buy it off LA Girl’s website.

As always, I’ll show you all the pictures, talk about the palette and packaging itself, and then have the full review and eye looks at the end! If you want to skip right to the eye looks, click here or the review part, you can click here.

Profusion ‘Wanderlust’ Palette Review

Have I mentioned I’m moving yet? Only on every other post? Well it’s a big deal, okay. Well, I’m mentioning it again because I’m currently packing up my entire life right now, after work and on weekends when I have time. So that means my posting is going to get a little lighter for these next couple weeks until I’m fully settled. I swear I’ll miss you all, and wish I had more hours in the day, but I’ll post as I can and have time!

I can’t wait to get back to a more regular schedule, and can really get into it once I’m settled and happy in my brand new apartment. I hope you can hear my excitement. I’m going to have more sunlight and open space, and I’m just ready to get out of my garden (aka basement) apartment. So if I’m a little MIA, don’t fret. I’ll be back soon from a brand new location (15 min away from my current one).

********

It’s a makeup review! I have said that I want to post more about makeup on here, especially eyeshadow palettes (my true fav), and so here we go. I don’t know what it is, but I was thoroughly intimidated by this review for far too long (maybe it was the amount of shades and making sure I had used them all), but I wanted to make sure I really knew what I was talking about. I don’t know, I felt afraid that I wouldn’t give enough information or good enough information. It’s something I’m slowly getting past, and I know it’ll get even easier the more of these I do!

So here’s to many more palette reviews to come.

NEW Wet N Wild ColorIcon 10-Pan Eyeshadow Palettes

NEW THINGS! NEW MAKEUP!

Look, I have a review of these! I made a good ol’ order on Wet N Wild’s website (here) when I heard they dropped a bunch of new products, because you know, I had to get my grabby hands on them.

The biggest news was that they redid and released all of their eyeshadow palettes, with a new configuration and new formulas. I have the 10-palettes in this review, that are slowly phasing out their big 8 pan palettes.

I have all 4 of them and they cost $4.99 each – just like your old 8 pans.

 

Let’s get into it, because it’s going to be long, with lots of pictures.

Swatch/Review: Covergirl TruNaked ‘Jewels’ Eyeshadow Palette

COLOR. COLOR EVERYWHERE. 2017 is the year of color, y’all. I am fully embracing my wildest colorful dreams and wearing whatever I want – this includes green lipstick. Stay tuned for that one. It’s coming.

But for now, let’s stick with color on the eyes.

Today I have the newest addition to the CoverGirl ‘TruNaked’ line. This time, they came out with the ‘Jewels’. When I saw promos for this, I drooled everywhere. I mean, I had heard so many good things about the TruNaked line of palettes, so this one had me all sorts of excited.

It retails for  $12.99 at Ulta, and features 8 new and colorful shades. It’s the exact same packaging as the other palettes in the TruNaked line.

Let’s get into the palette.
