A beauty blog on the hunt the best performing beauty products whether it is high-end, drugstore, or low-end and everything in between. I love reviewing new products and bringing you swatches. I also keep everyone up to date on new makeup releases.
I love when drugstore companies come out with new foundations, I cannot wait to try this one!!
Finally a hydrating, vitamin-infused formula for beautiful, buildable coverage that glides on smoothly for a flawless look. A special antioxidant and vitamin complex plus SPF 20 work together to make your skin look healthy all day. Give your skin a luminous glow. Available in multiple shades from light to deep.
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 🙂

Create a spectrum of out-of-this-world eye looks with the Cosmic Metals Shadow Palette– a new eyeshadow set inspired by NYX Cosmetics Professional Makeup’s beloved Cosmic Metals Lip Cream. Powered by six pigment-packed eyeshadows, this gorgeous set loads your lids with rich, metallic color and incredible color payoff.
This palette was just okay, it 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 this palette.
The eyeshadow formula is really good. It is nice and creamy and pigmented. these are dry packed shadows but they almost feel wet when you apply them on the skin. It seems like that happens with most foiled shadows though. They blend really nicely and look beautiful on the lids. They will crease if you don’t use a primer. But other than that I think they are great drugstore foiled shadows. SWATCHES:

I love this palette!!! I feel like this palette is so versatile and can be used on so many skin tones. This would be perfect for a a makeup kit or just anyone who loves variety.
There are two different formulas – the top row is shimmer/satin and the bottom row is matte. I personally love matte blushed more and these matte blushes are amazing! All of the blushes are amazing, they are so soft and so pigmented!! They really glide not the face so nicely and blend really well.
I honestly have nothing bad to say about this palette. It is totally worth the money and even better if you can get it for half off at Ulta.

NYX is coming out with so many items for the 2017 Spring launch! I have reviewed so many products but in particular more lipsticks 🙂 on the new NYX Pin-Up Pout Lipsticks – click here to read my review and swatches.
Let me start off by saying the colors are gorgeous!! I love all of the shades they created. There’s a nice variety of neutrals, reds, pinks, purples and some vibrant colors. The packing is so beautiful as well. I love the way they added the lipstick color to the tube so you know what shade it is. The lipstick tubes look very similar to the NYX Whipped Lip and Cheek Soufflé.
The lipstick shape is very unique and makes it easy to apply especially in the hard to get areas and curves of the lips. I really love that aspect of the lipstick!
Now as far as the formula goes, I am not the biggest fan of matte lipsticks in genera and I knew that going into it. Some of the colors are a little patchy and kind of dry, you will be able to see from my swatches. BUT there are some colors that are so amazing and glide on the lips much easier. My favorites shades are:In Bloom-ington, Garden State-ment, Roosevelt Nightcap, Te Amo del Amo, and Brooklyn. Those shades are so beautiful and amazing!!
These are definitely on the dry side so if you don’t mind that then you will love them. These are definitely a true matte.and pigmented but you need to build them up a bit. They do transfer but they stay on the lips longer than a normal lipstick. If you love more of a creamy matte check out my review of the NYX Velvet Matte Lipsticks – click here.
Like I said I love most of the shades but there were a few patchy and dry one. If you love matte lips and matte lipsticks then you definitely need to get some of these.
