It’s always fun with a little glitter sparkle in our lives, no? Since the festive season is coming, I’m going to be talking about two eyeshadow palettes that will help you achieve a festive, glittery and sparkly eye makeup look!
I’ve been immersed in glitter with the Too Faced Glitter Bomb Prismatic Glitter Eye Shadow Palette & Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow Palette. When I first received the Glitter Bomb palette, I thought that the shades are quite in the same family as those in the Moondust, so I bought the Moondust to do a comparison post.
Both makeup brands are my absolute all-time favourites. They produce some of the best eye primers, foundations and lipsticks in my opinion. I wanted to do a glitter showdown between the two so… Read on for a mini review on each, comparisons, swatches and similar makeup looks using both palettes.
A girl cannot have no glitter in her makeup wardrobe.
For once, you can hold your complaints about Singapore always being one of the last few countries to launch any makeup product. Get ready to perfect your skin with an unbelievably gorgeous glow that lasts, pretty much the entire day, even in Singapore’s hot tropical climate.
Let’s take a while to register that the Urban Decay Naked Skin Glow Cushion Compact Foundation is finally launched in Singapore… YAS, WE ARE THE FIRST COUNTRY TO LAUNCH THIS, and even the United States haven’t gotten a launch date yet!
Just 2 weeks ago, the whole world stopped for Rihanna, as @badgalriri launched her very own makeup line dedicated for all skin colors, all undertones, from all countries. With foundation in 40 shades, skinsticks in 30 shades, Fenty Beauty was created and made for every girl in the world.
First things first, disclaimer! Note that this is not a post with sponsored products as I wasn’t provided with any and these two highlighters were solely purchased with my own pocket money. Let’s be honest here. I know that I have been reviewing a lot of products provided by PR companies and the brands themselves but I just want to put it out there that I share my most honest thoughts even if the campaign was paid or products sponsored!
My Fenty Purchases
*Back to Fenty Beauty* The two products that caught my attention immediately following the launch were the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Trophy Wife (seriously the world went crazy for this) and the Matchstix Shimmer Skinstick in Confetti. I bought them both with the help of a sweet friend who was at the press launch at Sephora ION.
Bold is the new black. Ditch the boring, flat beiges and browns. Stand out and make a fashion statement with a daring eye look, using the completely new Marc Jacobs Beauty Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palettes.
Eyeshadows have always been my thing – I love to make the craziest of colours work for me. The possibilities are endless! With the new generation of eyeshadow palettes, you can express yourself with dimensional neutrals, brilliant pops of colour with four fashion finishes. “With any way you style your eyes, you’re sure to make your marc (mark)”.
When it comes to beauty, the Koreans always strike first. If you think applying blush is easy, think again. The Koreans have now reinvented the steps to achieving the perfect flush with the Blush Layering trend – basically working on a combination of sheer colours to achieve natural blush, contouring and highlighting effects.
And yes, if you’ve been following social media, you’ll definitely not be a stranger to the LANEIGE Ideal Blush Duo collection that’s all over your feed. The collection, with natural and luminous hues, is designed perfectly for the Blush Layering trend, with two colours in each of the six unique palettes.
My First Impression
I quite like the shade selection in each palette, because each palette is carefully designed for you to achieve a certain look, whether it be a pure and innocent one, a sun-kissed glowy one or even a well-contoured one. The combination of two ideal colours into one palette, coupled with the blendability of the formula, lets you conveniently create a complexion you desire in the shortest amount of time.
