Gone swatching: bite beauty prismatic pearl multisticks

Blog, Gone swatching

Ciao!

I love bite beauty. You can see all my posts on them here, the Amuse Bouche lipsticks made it into my top list of lipsticks, and the matte multisticks made it into my December favorites!

But these multisticks?

These aren’t great.

I feel bad writing a negative bite beauty post because I really like their products, but I honestly can’t comprehend how these made it past testing. Clearly they were designed for editorial makeup, but they don’t seem good enough for even that.

The highlighter market is so oversaturated at this point, so if a company wants to release something new it should be both high quality and innovative. I can’t really call this innovative because it’s basically creamy glitter.

Overall, I think this is a really bad release. I was so excited because I really love the matte formula, but was disappointed overall.

Gone swatching: fenty beauty galaxy eyeshadow palette

Blog, Gone swatching

Ciao!

I adore Rihanna, so when Fenty beauty first launched, I was convinced I would buy everything without even knowing what it was. However once it launched and I had the opportunity to try it in store (with a mob of people around it, I should add) the hype sort of died down for me.

I believe that this collection is of amazing quality, however it’s not for me in a couple ways.

a) I have dry/combination skin, so I don’t focus on making my face look super matte. This rules out the foundation, primer, blotting paper, and the concealer match stix.

b) The highlightersย felt either very glittery, or too much like other highlights I had.ย Trophy wifeย was unique, however I most definitely can not pull off a true gold highlight. I can hardly pull off BECCA champagne pop!

On the other hand, I’m excited to potentially try out the gloss bomb and the shimmer match stix or the contour match stix.

So now that I’ve introduced you to Fenty Beauty and my thoughts on their first collection, I will now give you the (literal) star of the holiday collection: the Galaxy Eyeshadow palette.
