bh Cosmetics Solar Flare Palette Swatches + First Impressions

0
I just got the new bh Cosmetics Solar Flare Palette ($15.99 at bhcosmetics.com) in the mail today and I couldn't wait to get some swatches up for you guys (I've been getting a lot of requests about this one!). The various sneak peeks of the palette on social media seemed to be in different lighting, making the shades look one way in some photos and another way in others. In the promo photo on the left, the palette looks like it has a lot of pink and purple toned shades, while the photo on the right from the bh Cosmetics website shows the shades leaning more orange, green, and brown.

If you've been dying to get your hands on the new Pur Cosmetics Soiree Diaries Palette, now's your chance to snag it at a great price! Regularly $34, it's 30% off (plus free shipping) with code SUMMER25, bringing the cost down to only $23.80.

Pur's eyeshadow formula is one of the most underrated in my opinion...every palette I own from them is fantastic...soft, highly pigmented, and easy to blend. So this is a no-brainer for me!

If this palette doesn't appeal to you, the rest of the products on their site are included in the sale as well, as long as your cart reaches $25. This includes the Trolls Palette, Vanity Palettes, Powder Foundation, Afterglow Highlighter (one of my favorites!) and more.

Will you be picking this one up, or anything else from the PUR website during the sale? I'd love to hear about your haul in the comments below.

Pretty, Natural Summer Look With Too Faced Cosmetics

5
I've been a fan of Too Faced Cosmetics for the past 13 years, so I was really excited when they sent me some of their new Spring launches to try, as well as the Born This Way foundation which I had never tried before. So I thought it might be fun to add in a few more products I already owned and create a pretty, summery look using only Too Faced products.

Read on for my thoughts and to see the final result!

Makeup Revolution Golden Sugar 2 Rose Gold Review & Swatches

4
I recently picked up the Makeup Revolution Golden Sugar 2 Rose Gold Palette at Ulta and I have to say...it's been a surprisingly versatile hidden gem! I purchased the original Golden Sugar palette online back in 2015 from their UK site and I really enjoyed it, so when I saw this newer version at Ulta I just couldn't resist...especially since it was only $10!

Let's take a look...

Two Drugstore Dupes for the Naked Heat Palette

Now that I've reviewed the Naked Heat palette, I figured it was time to find some more affordable dupes! I looked through my collection and the first thing that jumped out at me was the NYX Ultimate Eyeshadow Palette in Warm Neutrals ($17.99). The colors looked very similar, plus the NYX also has four additional shades.
When I started swatching them side-by-side, I couldn't believe how similar a lot of the colors were...not to mention the NYX formula is amazing and very comparable, in my opinion. Both companies are owned by L'oreal so I thought that was kind of interesting as well!

The NYX palette is available at Target (they also have it at Ulta but it's never in stock). I found mine in-store but if you're not sure if your Target carries it, you can always search by zip code on the website to see if your local stores have it in stock. 

Next, I pulled out my J.Cat Beauty Sunset Boulevard Palette ($14.99) to see if I could find any dupes. Turns out there are a lot of similar shades, even though the J. Cat palette doesn't have any of the lighter shades that the Naked Heat does. 

The Sunset Boulevard Palette has 24 shades (double the Naked Heat) and I wasn't going to swatch them all since a lot of them don't look like they would be dupes. So I just swatched the shades that looked similar in the pan. The formula is also very comparable...soft and highly pigmented!



The J. Cat Sunset Boulevard Palette is available online at Ulta.com


So I really hope this post was helpful! If you already have either one of these palettes, you may decide that you can skip the Naked Heat (and if you don't own either of these palettes, they're definitely worth a purchase!).

What are your thoughts? :)


Urban Decay Naked Heat Review & Swatches

I'm a huge fan of the Urban Decay Naked Palettes...you could say that they were my "gateway" to higher-end eyeshadows and several years later I still love and use them often. So of course, I just couldn't resist the new Naked Heat Palette ($54)...the warm, rich, toasty shades look so perfect for fall!

Colourpop Cute AF Palette Launching Tomorrow

Colourpop is launching their brand new Cute AF Palette tomorrow June 16th and as I was watching them swatch it on Instagram stories yesterday, I was totally getting Natasha Denona Sunset vibes. At only $16, this might be a very affordable dupe for her new Sunset palette...what do you guys think?

Will you be purchasing this one tomorrow? I really don't need another new palette but it's pretty hard to resist at that price. :)
