NYX Love You So Mochi Eyeshadow Palettes – Review & Swatches

Affiliate

Today I am bringing you another new NYX review. I have SO many products to review so be on the lookout every day.

I have both NYX Love You So Mochi Eyeshadow Palettes. These came out earlier this year, I believe. I have reviewed many NYX palettes before and I am amazed every time. Click here to see my past reviews.

Details:

Explore a rainbow of color with NYX Professional Makeup’s Love You So Mochi Eyeshadow Palettes! Available in gorgeous color combinations, this striking set features ten bouncy, silky-to-the-touch, eyeshadows in a range of matte and shimmer finishes. Spoiler alert: You are going to freak out when you feel these soft and pillowy shades for the first time – the marshmallow-like texture reminds us of our fave Japanese treat – mochi!

 

NYX Love You So Mochi Sleek and Chic Eyeshadow Palette

 

NYX Love You So Mochi Electric Pastels Eyeshadow Palette

 

Review:

Both of these palettes are available on Ulta.com and the NYX Cosmetics website.

These palettes didn’t really WOW me, partly because I LOVE matte shadows and these are all shimmery shadows. If you love shimmery shadows or the colors of these shadows then you will love these palettes.

The eyeshadow formula is good. It is nice, creamy, and blends well. They work better with your finger rather than a brush, but they still work with a brush, the pigmentation isn’t as great though. Both eyeshadow formulas perform the same, but I prefer the Sleek and Chic eyeshadow palette because of the shade selection. I will say that the one shade that disappointed me from that palette is the dark black shade. The pigmentation is really sheer for that one, as you can see from the swatches.

Another downfall is the price. I feel like $20 is too much for this palette. It think it should be priced closer to $12-$15. Ulta always has sales on NYX products so wait for a sale to pick one up.

Affiliate

 

If you know me then you should know that I LOVE reviewing NYX products, especially lip products! Click here to see all of my past NYX reviews.

NYX always kills it when it comes to their spring launches. Each year it gets better and better. This spring killed it as well. Be on the lookout for my future reviews because I pretty much bought everything!

Today I am reviewing and searching the new NYX Faux Marble Lipsticks. These came out earlier in the year and they must have been a hit because there are slim pickins’ left on the Ulta site. I hope they restock soon!

Cost: $8.99

Where to buy: click here

 

 

Details:

Brilliant hues artfully swirled together in just one lippie. Yep, the limited-edition NYX Professional Makeup Faux Marble Lipstick is a thing of beauty. Each color combination blends together as you swipe and becomes a seriously stunning shade of its very own, revealing that no two lipsticks are the same. Choose from four gorgeous colors that glide on soft and smooth while leaving lips with a satin finish.

Shades:

  • Berry
  • So Anti
  • Chill Chill
  • Primrose
  • As if
  • Bless
  • Dayum
  • Periwinkle
  • Lilac

 

Review:

To sum it up, I really love these Faux Marble Lipsticks! I feel like they are really innovative and there isn’t really anything else on the market like these.

They have kind of a duo chrome affect and they look really cool on the lips. I really like to use the lighter shades as a lipstick topper, just to give your lips more dimension.

I will say that the lighter shades don’t give as much pigmentation, but they give a nice shimmery color shift to the lips. The darker shades have the perfect amount of pigmentation and they all go on the lips smoothly and feel comfortable.

You will have to reapply this throughout the day because the lasting power isn’t as long because it’s a  lipstick.

One more not, these do not have any sort of fragrance. They almost smell like crayons. It doesn’t bother me and the smell doesn’t linger.

Overall these are amazing lipsticks and totally worth the buy!!

L’ORÉAL Infallible Pro Glow Powder & Concealer | Review & Swatches

Affiliate

 

I have super dry skin so I couldn’t wait for these to come out. I have been putting these to the test for two weeks now. Keep reading to see how I liked them.

L’ORÉAL Infallible Pro Glow Powder

 

 

Review:

I bought mine in the color 24 Natural Beige. The color is perfect for me. It’s not to yellow and not too pink, it’s the perfect neutral shade for my skin tone. 

When I saw this I thought it was just going to be a normal powder that is suitable for dry skin. But I was wrong, this is just a nice silky powder that has a slight sheen to it. Half of the powder looks like a highlighter and the other half is just powder. When I first saw that it was a turnoff, but I actually like it now.

The powder is silky and smooth and when you swirl your brush in the two it really just gives your face a beautiful glow. It isn’t glittery or shimmery, it’s just a nice glow. I love using it as a finishing powder after my foundation and concealer is done.

I think the only downfall is the price. I think it should be priced more around the $8.99 mark. If you use your ULTA $3.50 coupon then it’s definitely worth it. 

 

L’ORÉAL Infallible Pro Glow Concealer

 

 

Review:

I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this!! Concealer can be tricky if you have dry skin and finding a drugstore concealer is a little more tricky. 

I bought three shades: 02 Creamy Natural, 03 Nude Beige, and 04 Natural Beige

This concealer definitely isn’t a true full coverage concealer. It’s lightweight and a thinner consistency. You can build it up a bit but it looks better with one coat. 

It doesn’t cling to dry patches and looks nice and hydrating under the eyes. It isn’t glowy or shimmery in anyway, I would say it’s just hydrating.

I personally like more coverage in a concealer but it’s nice on natural days or light makeup days. 

The concealer blends out really nicely and looks good throughout the day.

I was ,however, disappointed in the shade selection, I got three and they still seem too dark. They also have a really yellow tone. I like mine to be a little more pink or neutral.

I like the packaging and the doe foot applicator. 

It’s a pretty good concealer for the drugstore I just wish it was a little more full coverage and I think they need to come out with more shades. 

Swatches:

02 Creamy Natural, 03 Nude Beige, 04 Natural Beige

 

Did you buy any of these?

Great Mother’s Day Present | JORD Wooden Watch Review & Contest

PR

Today I am reviewing something a little different on my blog. Typically I review makeup, skincare, haircare, etc. And sometimes I will review fashion items – but it seems like it has been a while since I have. So today I am reviewing this beautiful wooden watch by JORD.

I have teamed up with JORD to give you the opportunity to get your own unique wooden watch (and/or one for someone you love) at an amazing discount.

Enter the wooden watch giveaway at https://www.jordwatches.com/g/kittykatdoesmakeup

The winner gets a $100 e-voucher and EVERYONE who enters gets a $25 e-gift code! The contest ends on May 21st, 2017.

I thought that since Mother’s Day is approaching rather quickly, that this would be a great gift to give. It’s unique, beautiful, high-quality and it will be a gift that she can keep for a really long time.

When JORD reached out to me and asked if I wanted to review one of their watches of course I said YES! I have wanted a wooden watch for SOOO long! Plus they have soon many beautiful watches to chose from – click here to see their site.

I picked out the CORA series Zebrawood & Turquoise color. I personally wish I could have all of the watches for different outfits.

 

 

Isn’t this just the cutest watch ever?? I love turquoise and this watch looks so good with so many sprint and summer looks. I have gotten so many compliments on it.

I personally like to pair the watch with different bracelets to give it that boho look. You can dress it down or dress it up – it’s that versatile.

 

JORD watches are totally worth the price and the quality is unlike any other wood watch I have seen. They use Sapphire glass which is known in the luxury watch world as the definitive material for transparency and durability. Sapphire is a synthetic crystal (aluminum oxide Al2O3) rather than actual glass. It is colorless and optically clear. Mechanically, it is second only to diamond as the hardest and most scratch resistant materials on earth. It also has a very high modulus of elasticity and tensile strength, making it extremely versatile and resistant to impact/abrasion.

I love the different types of wood they have for different watches. I really love the back of this watch. It’s clear so you can see the gears..SO COOL! I am totally in love and would recommend these watches to anyone I know.

 

 

Don’t forget to enter the contest!!!

Tarte Make Believe In Yourself Collection | Review & Swatches

Affiliate

 

I LOVE this whole collection! The packaging is to die for. I wish all of their packaging could be like this. I love unicorns and the colors that just scream UNICORN!  I only picked up a few items but so far I am loving everything.

 

Make Believe In Yourself: Magic Wands Brush Set

I love these brushes so much!! They are so soft and so beautiful. I don’t even want to use them because they are so pretty. I just want to put them on display. They are all so soft and they get the job don’t. They blend makeup beautifully and there is nothing bad to say about them. I just wish there were more in the collection!!

 


Make Believe In Yourself: Eye & Cheek Palette

If you love shimmery shades, you will love this palette. These are so pigmented and beautiful! I personally love matte eyeshadows more. But if you really love pigmented shimmer shades then you need this. They blend really nicely and look beautiful on the eyes. They almost feel wet like a Makeup Geek Foiled eyeshadow. They are all shimmers except for one matte shade which is so pigmented and soft. The white shade is perfect for a highlight on the face as well!

 


 

Make Believe In Yourself: Spellbound Glow Rainbow Highlighter

This highlighter is pretty but it isn’t one of those highlighters that will glow from outer space. It is almost more of a natural glow, which I like. I love the different shades. You can use each of them on their own or you can swirl them all together. Either way, they are beautiful!

 


 

Make Believe In Yourself: Limited-Edition Lights, Camera, Lashes™ 4-in-1 Mascara

Of course I had to but this mascara for the packaging!! I love this packaging. I think they should change their original Light, Camera, Lashes Mascara into this packaging forever! This mascara is just an all-around staple. It is a great everyday mascara. It keep the lashes curled, doesn’t budge or flake and makes the lashes look pretty and not too over the top.

REVIEW:

This palette is amazing!! I love everything about it. I know the colors aren’t everyday wearable colors, but for some people they can pull it off. I think the colors go really well with each other and they are so visually appealing.

The formula is amazing! I think it is better than the previous palette. This formula is a dream formula. I have nothing bad to say about it. They are SO pigmented!! Not only are they pigmented, but they blend like a dream and there is barely any fall out.

These are all matte shades except two. I can’t tell you how amazing the mattes are. They really could be my favorite formula so far. The shimmers are really nice too, the shades just aren’t my favorite and I don’t wear a lot of shimmer shades.

I wish Jeffree would come out with an all matte palette or just a neutral palette for all of us that love those neutrals.

This palette is amazing and everyone needs it in their collection!

REVIEW:

Uhhh I love this palette!! I have never purchased a MAC eyeshadow palette until this one and I am very impressed. I own many MAC single eyeshadows and I was curious to see how they compare. I think the shadows in this palette are actually better than some of the singles I own.

I pretty much love all of the shades in this palette except one – Indiscretion. It was so awful and patchy; you can see it from the swatch below. Other than that shade, they were all amazing! I particular love the matte shades. They are so creamy, soft and pigmented. They glide on the lids so nicely and blend out like a dream. I didn’t have any issues with fall out either. They last all day and don’t crease.

I honestly love this palette so much! it’s my new go-to everyday palette. It is totally worth the price too. If you were to buy these shades individually, it would cost $134!!

REVIEW:

If you love the colors in this palette then you will love this!! I love Too Faced palettes, especially these 9 pan palettes. The formula is just like the others – fabulous! They are very creamy and soft. They really blend well and apply so nicely with a brush. They last all day and don’t crease if you use a primer.

It is supposed to smell like peanut butter and honey but I don’t think it does. It just has an artificial scent to it. It isn’t bad, but I just can’t smell the honey. It kind of smells like the Chocolate Bar Palette with a hint of artificial peanut butter.

As far as the colors go – they aren’t not my favorite colors. I really love the formula and I love how cute the palette is, but these are not my kind of colors. This will look so amazing on people that can pull of these shades, but for my skin tone it just doesn’t work. I really like these shades though: Peanut Butter, Creamed Honey, Honey Brittle, and Feelin’ Nutty. That yellow shade, Honey Buns, is so pigmented!! I really love that pop of yellow. It isn’t an everyday shade for me but it might come in handy around Halloween.

I don’t think this palette is a must. But if you love Too Faced or if you are a makeup junkie like me then you probably need it 🙂

NYX Love Contours All Palette 

Nothing can keep us from sculpting – Love Contours All! This uh-mazing NYX Cosmetics palette has literally everything you need for complete definition. It includes pigmented eyeshadows in edgy, neutral tones, blendable highlighting and contouring shades, and beautiful brow powders. Yes! You can create a whole look using one sleek palette. Hold on, this heart just skipped a beat.

 

REVIEW:

This palette, like most NYX palettes, is amazing!!! If you love any of the NYX most recent palettes like the Avant Pop Palette, you will love this one. This palette is really good!! It has everything you will ever need for many different looks. You can use all of these shades on your eyes and in many different ways, they are so versatile. I love all of the shades in this palette!

All of these shades are so pigmented, you can see by the swatches. They also work so well with your brush and blend really nicely. The matte shades in these palettes are my favorite. The shimmer shades are nice too but I just love matte eyeshadows. Do you see how black that shade is?? YEAH!

The contour and highlight shades are so amazing as well! They are so pigmented and the perfect shades.

The only downfall is they are a little powdery and there’s some fallout, but I can live with that.

This palette is totally worth it and if you can get it from Ulta with the buy 1 get 1 50% off, it is even more worth it!

Hard Candy Look Pro Matte Eyeshadow Palette | Review & Swatches

 

Hard Candy Look Pro Matte Eyeshadow Palette

  • Cost: $10
  • Where to buy: I bought it at my local Walmart

This palette contains 15 matte eyeshadow shades and 4 eyeshadow brushes. I can’t find this online but looked everywhere. This is a new palette from Hard Candy that I found at Walmart.

 

REVIEW:

For the drugstore and $10 this palette is not that bad at all. I love matte palettes and nothing is better than fining a drugstore matte palette. It is a pretty good palette and you get a good amount of shades. I really love the shades that they picked. You have a full row of light matte shades, some warm shades, cool shades and some nice deep shades.

As far as the formula goes, it is ok. I wouldn’t say it is the best formula but it definitely isn’t bad. When I first swatched them with my finger, the formula was SOOO smooth and creamy. I have never touched a drugstore palette with such a smooth formula. They swatch really smoothly and blend pretty well. I will say that when you use a brush they aren’t as pigmented. They are a little lighter but I still think they are really pretty!!

The only downfall is they are a little powdery and have some fallout. I also wasn’t impressed with the deep shades. They are a little too light for me and they don’t really build up. I will say that the middle row is my favorite!! Overall for the price this is a good palette especially if you are starting with building up a makeup collection.
