Gone swatching: too faced white chocolate bar

Blog, Gone swatching

Ciao!

So Too Faced has recently launched two new palettes from their popular chocolate bar line: the white Chocolate Bar palette, aimed at lighter skin tones, and the Chocolate Gold palette, aimed at deeper skin tones. This post will be focusing on the white chocolate palette.

Recently, Too Faced has been releasing many products, and not many of those products have received positive reviews. That made me all the more interested to test these out in store, because that’s the only way I can really test for the quality myself.

I’ve been happy with my Peachy Mattes palette, which is the only Too Faced palette I own, so let’s see how these two compare!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism vs Subculture

Blog, The dupe test

Ciao!

So I got the change to compare two nearly untouched Anastasia Beverly Hills palettes– the highly controversial Subculture and the very new Prism. Thanks again to Melissa Korn again for letting me play with some of her palettes!

There were two things I was curious about regarding the two new palettes. First, I wanted to know if ABH changed the formula between the two palettes because of the backlash from Subculture. Second, I’m sure I’m not the only person who noticed how similar the two palettes were. One thing to note is that Prism was released with the holiday collection and is limited edition. If it interests you, pick it up quickly!

Let’s check it out!

My top picks for fall makeup

Blog, The Bella Edit

Ciao!

Things I love about fall (in order):

  • Pumpkins
  • Dark matte lipstick
  • Pumpkins
  • Sweaters and boots
  • Pumpkins
  • Copper eyeshadow
  • Pumpkins

Clockwise from left: Colourpop yes please palette, Tarte matte lip paint in bestie, Julep feels like velvet duo in cinnamon and spice, Charlotte Tilbury matte revolution in very victoria, Winky Lux double matte whip liquid lipstick in shortcake.

Jokes aside, fall is probably my favorite season for makeup. All of the looks people create draw from the changing leaves and amber scenery and I find they’re much more creative in general.

This list is entirely lipstick and eyeshadow, because that’s what I think of as distinctly fall makeup. Here’s everything I’ve been loving to wear this fall!

Disclaimer: no lipsticks or eyeshadow where harmed by falling off of/into pumpkins in the making of this post.

Winky lux kitten eyeshadow palette review

Makeup Reviews, Reviews

Ciao!

I’ve had this palette since late August, and aside from posting a little about it on my Instagram story, I couldn’t talk much about it!

But the palette officially launched today, so now I’m free to post on this palette. Spoiler alert: I love it. I’m a fairly picky eyeshadow user, especially drugstore eyeshadows. I was fairly skeptical of this palette before I tried it on my eyes, but now there’s no question about the quality.
