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!

NOTD: Essie ‘Aim to Misbehave’ – Essie’s 1000th Shade!

*NOTD=Nails of the Day. Hello yellow! Essie has put out it’s 1000th shade, and I picked it up – I told myself I needed it as a collector and blogger (that’s what I’m sticking to).

Essie’s 1000th shade is out as a part of their summer collection, the Shimmer Brights. I know this collection has been out for a while, and I might be a little late to the game – but it’s still summer and this shade is still very much available, so here’s a post anyways!

The 1000th shade is called ‘Aim to Misbehave’, and it’s a shimmery warm toned yellow with lots of microshimmer all throughout. My boyfriend describes it as a “shiny mustard” and I have to say I agree with that statement. The cap of the bottle has this cool little decoration with little “1000s” all over it. It reminds me of graduation and I don’t know why.

AimToMisbehave

It’s a nice formula, opaque in two coats. Depending on how you apply it, you might need 3 to cover your nail line. I noticed it’s a thicker formula, so it can be a little difficult to get smooth, if you don’t have enough on the brush but it’s not too frustrating. And it’s like it dries fast, so it’ll stick to itself as you’re trying to smooth it. But I also found it stays tacky for quite a while, which might be from the thicker coats I had to do. Nice, but not my favorite formula.

When removing it, don’t twist – I did this and got yellow just about everywhere. So just pull it off instead.

I also found that, yes, it’s a beautiful color, however it’s not beautiful on me. Because it is so warm toned, I found it just clashed with my cool skin tone. People with more olive toned skin-this will look beautiful on you. Me, however, it’ll stay as part of my collection and a cool thing for a nail polish obsessive person like me to have.

Essie doesn’t do yellows too often, so this is a cool shade to have in the collection. If you’re a collector at all – and maybe have yellow undertones to your skin – get this.
