Sephora Colorful Eyeshadow Photo Filter Palettes

Let's face it we live in a world where selfies are here to stay.

With that comes makeup created to enhance your features and make you more photo friendly.

Who doesn't want to look like a walking photo filter?

Yes, please! Flawless look 24/7, count me in!!!

Too Faced recently capitalized on the whole selfie concept by creating a palette called #Tfnofilter Selfie Powders.

The selfie powders claimed to mimic the effects of three photo filters.

Sephora has now released two separate eyeshadow palettes that are inspired by photo filtering effects.

Each contains 10 eyeshadows (2 of the shadows are larger and the other 8 are smaller in size).

The first is called the Sunbleached Filter Palette and it contains soft, light shades (I love the packaging by the way).

The eyeshadows in the palette are:

Walking in the Sand
Selfie
#tbt
Swell
Latergram
Whitewashed
Sandy Toes
Desert Rose
Swan Song
Secret Boudoir


The Sunbleached Palette would be perfect for your everyday natural/neutral look.

The other palette is called the Overcast Filter Palette.

It contains cool toned shadows for smoky looks.

Look at the packaging on this one too. 

The eyeshadows in the palette are:

Sandcastle
Flagstone
June Gloom
Getaway
Berlin Underground
Rocky
Black Lace
Cozy Sweater
#happydays
Smoke Signals



Each palette is $32 and available in Sephora stores and online (below is the link).


Which photo filter palette do you prefer Sunbleached or Overcast?

BH Cosmetics Wild & Radiant Baked Illuminating & Bronzing Palette

BH Cosmetics has created another gorgeous baked palette.

This one is called Wild & Radiant and it is an illuminating (highlighter) and bronzing (bronzer) palette.



It comes with 4 shades, 2 highlighters and 2 bronzers.

The shades are in champagne, bronze, and copper tones.


The price of the palette is regularly $20, but because BH Cosmetics always has sales it will most likely always be less. Currently it is on sale for $8.
If you love to contour and highlight or if you just love baked products than these are for you.



Lorac Pro Matte Palette

Lorac has released another new palette in their Pro line that is available now at Ulta.

It is called the Lorac Pro Matte Palette.




It is an all matte palette that contains 8 shades.

Bare
Latte
Corduroy
Chocolate
Linen
Pink
Mauve 
Burgundy
Jet Black

Each shade can be used wet or dry.

The Lorac Pro Matte Palette is $28 and can be purchased online http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod12541009 or in Ulta stores.

Everyone needs a great matte palette or two in their collection.

Will you be picking this beauty up?

Saucebox Batalash Palette and Swatches

Saucebox announced a couple of months ago that they had created a palette in collaboration with the Batalash Beauty girls (Samantha, Angela, and Dominique). 

For more on the Batalash Beauty girls visit the Batalash Beauty http://batalashbeauty.com/about/

It was available for presale for $60 with a limited number of quantities for purchase.

It is a limited edition palette that contains 8 shades hand picked by the Batalash Beauty girls.

Here is my new palette finally at home.


A closer look at the gorgeous cover


The back of the palette, showing the names of all 8 shades and all of the ingredients of the shadows.


The shadows:

The first row contains 4 matte shades

Vanilla, Winter Brown, Cinnamon, and Lace Noir

The second row contains 4 pearl shades

Enigma, Electro, Popper, and Nova


Swatches from bottom to top:

Vanilla, Winter Brown, Cinnamon, Lace Noir, Enigma, Electro, Popper, and Nova.

These were swatched on my arm without primer.



Look at the color payoff of these beauties.

The first shade Vanilla, is close to my skin tone which caused it to blend in and isn't easily seen. This will work as a brow bone shade or a transition shade on fairer skin tone.


Closeup of the same swatches


I have used this palette two times and so far I am happy with it.

I always use a primer and an eye base to ensure that I get the greatest color payoff and longevity out of the shadows.

My favorite shadows are Cinnamon, Enigma, and Electro.

Did you pick up this palette? If not it is still available, but once it is gone it won't be restocked.

Here is the link to purchase your Batalash Palette http://sauceboxcosmetics.com/products/batalash-palette

If you already purchased the palette, what are your thoughts?

L'Oreal True Match Lumi Powder Glow Illuminator

For all my fellow highlighter addicts out there L'Oreal has something for us.

They have a new line called Lumi Glow Illuminator.

It contains liquid and powder highlighters.

The powder highlighters are called The True Match Lumi Powder Glow Illuminator (a tongue twister for sure, but gorgeous nonetheless).

They come in 3 variations.

Ice - enhances pink and blue tones



Rose - enhances yellow, peachy, pink, and blue tones




Golden - enhances peachy and yellow tones


These are available in drugstores and Ulta (online or in stores)

They are $12.99 each.

Ulta currently has a promotion online where you buy one and get the 2nd 50% off (link below).


I purchased Golden and am still waiting for it to arrive. I will have another post with swatches once I get it.

Have you seen these? Which us your favorite?

Giovi Magic Finish Baked Eyeshadow and Swatches

Giovi is a makeup brand that sells affordable makeup that is comparable to Kleancolor.

Some of their products are sold on shopmissa.com

I have also seen them at local 99 cent stores. 

The products are usually $1.

While placing an order on Miss A I saw pictures of the eyeshadows below.


I saw that they were baked eyeshadows and thought hey I love baked eyeshadows and these look gorgeous so I might as well give them a go.



Just like at these. They are beautiful and they are called Magic Finish.

The brown one on the bottom is simply called 03. It contains blue and brown.

The champagne one is 04. It has pink and white, which also doubles as an amazing highlighter.

The green one is called 01. It is green and gold.




Here are the swatches from bottom to top - 04, 03, and 01.


All of these swatches are on my bare arm without primer.


A closer look


Same swatches with flash


When the color in each of these is mixed together it makes an amazing duochrome where you can see each shade. Or better yet they make new unique shades.

These most likely can be used wet or dry but I have only used them wet.

These hold up really well when worn over a primer and eye base.

One last thing these eyeshadows are huge. They are the size of a blush.

They are back in stock on the Miss A website, here is the link for them http://www.shopmissa.com/Giovi-Magic-Baked-Eyeshadow.html

They come in 4 shades, I was missing 02, which is similar to 04.

If you like what you see, get them before they are sold out again and for good. They are $1 each.

What do you think of the Giovi Magic Finish Baked Eyeshadows?

New Milani Color Statement Matte Lipsticks

I want to thank Instagram and fellow makeup addicts like myself for always keep us informed and really just helping our addiction thrive.

72 - Matte Kiss

73 - Matte Love

It took every bit of self control to not buy the whole display as I have the original 8.

I picked up Matte Darling which is beautiful. I plan on getting Matte Beauty for sure and maybe the rest.

Have you seen this collection in your local drugstore? Which are on your list?

Hopefully these will be on Milani's website soon.

Too Faced Love Palette and Love Flush Blush

Today Too Faced released two highly anticipated products.

The Love Palette and the Love Flush Blush.

Both of these products are so adorable with their heart decoration that they would have been perfect for a Valentine's Day release.

Even more proof of this is that Too Faced's describes this palette as having such romantic shades that would allow you to create looks that anyone would fall head over heels for.

Well it may not be Valentine's Day, but I am a sucker for romance any day of the year and therefore this palette is a must have for me.

The Love Palette contains 15 eyeshadows ranging in satin, shimmer, and matte finishes.

It also comes with a full sized Perfect Eyes Eye Liner in Dressed in Love and a How-To-Glamour Guide to help you achieve 3 romantic looks.

It is $49 and for now can only be purchased via this link on Too Faced's website https://www.toofaced.com/p/whats-new/love/

It will eventually be sold at Ulta, Sephora, and any other retailers that carry Too Faced.



The Love Flush Blush (trying saying that 3 times fast) reminds me of Valentine's day too with its heart shape. It almost reminds me of Easter with its adorable bunnies that are pressed into the blush.

Too Faced states that it is long wearing, fade proof, and smudge proof, allowing your cheeks to look flushed for up to 16 hours. 

This is a challenge I have to take. No need to apply and reapply.

They come in 6 shades.

Justify My Love


How Deep Is Your Love?


Your Love Is King



I Will Always Love You


Baby Love


Love Hangover


I think I need I Will Always Love you and Love Hangover in my life. Who am I kidding? I need them all.

They are $26 each and can also be ordered for now on Too Faced's website via this link https://www.toofaced.com/p/blushes/love-flush-long-lasting-blush/justify-my-love/

Will you be picking up the Too Faced Love Palette or any of the Too Faced Love Flush Blushes?
