Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette Review

Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette

We saw an influx of liquid lipsticks and contour releases last year but what I’m just now realizing is that it was also the year of eyeshadow palettes. It took me a little while to notice it but after counting the number of eyeshadow palettes I picked up last year (9 or more) it was clear to see that eyeshadow palette releases were pretty much back to back in 2015. Every time I turned around, there was a palette releasing that I needed as much as I need a hole in my head. It was complete madness!

However, there was one limited edition palette that I just knew I didn’t want: the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Palette. When Urban Decay first announced that they were collaborating with Gwen Stefani for a collection I was bouncing off the wall with excitement. Gwen Stefani is known for her fun fashion and bold, bright colors so I was expecting something funky spectacular since Urban Decay is pretty well known for taking a walk on the edgy side too. Imagine my disappointment when the sneak peeks of the Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette hit Instagram and it turned out to be an extension of the Naked line. Womp womp!

Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly Eyeshadow Palette Swatches

Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly Eyeshadow Palette

It’s peanut butter jelly time! I know I’m not the only one who randomly breaks out into song and dance every time I think of the new Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly Eyeshadow Palette. The song matches my excitement so well because I already believe Too Faced’s latest palette is the best thing since slice bread (pun intended) and it’s definitely something to dance about. When the Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette released last year I had to get my hands on it because Peanut Butter looked like the most perfect transition shadow I’ve ever laid eyes on. Once I finally got my hands on Semi-Sweet, it was only a matter of time before my pan of Peanut Butter had a massive dip in it.

Tarte Tartelette Eyeshadow Collection

Tarte Tartelette Eyeshadow Collection

Before the holiday season, my stash was pretty much Tarte-free. I’ve tried a Glamazon lipsticks and a concealer before years ago but they’ve never pushed me over the edge to really explore the rest of the brand and really see what Tarte’s all about. Fast forward to today and I’ve become a full on Tartelette thanks to Tarte’s recent Tartelette Eyeshadow Collection. The love affair started when I finally swatched the Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Palette over the holiday and decided to finally give it a try after seeing one too many pictures of it on that darn Instagram. Next thing I know, the entire collection ends up in my stash because Tarte did such a bang up job. Damn you Tarte!

Tarte Tartelette Tease Eyeshadow Palette Review

Tarte Tartelette Tease Eyeshadow Palette

Tarte used to be one of the last brands to catch my attention but ever since they released the Tartelette eyeshadow collection I’ve been more and more intrigued. The original Tartelette Palette and the Tartelette in Bloom Palette turned out to be a huge hit for me so when I received the new Tartelette Tease Palette for spring in my Ulta gratis bag I was crazy excited because I knew it was going to be good. The Tartelette Tease is the smallest palette in the collection featuring just 6 neutral shadows in a mix of cool and warm shades that’s suitable for all skin tones and oh so cute!

Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette Coming Soon!

Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette for Summer 2016

Don’t you just love Instagram leaks? I know they can be a real pain in the ass for most makeup companies but I can’t help but get excited every time I get a sneak peek of the next hottest thing in beauty before it releases. Too Faced has been upping the ante all year with their new releases of Melted Chocolate Lipsticks, Chocolate Bon Bons Palette and the Peanut Butter & Jelly Palette (dropping soon!) but the cuteness doesn’t stop there. The upcoming summer collection is bound to be a doozy too thanks to new, limited edition Sweet Peach Palette. The Sweet Peach Palette seems to be the sweeter cousin of the Chocolate Bar Collection featuring 16 neutral shadows that smell like peaches. Yum! The last thing I need is another neutral palette (or anymore eyeshadows in general) but I’d be lying if I said the swatches that LarLarLee shared on Instagram didn’t tempt me. Just look at those warm browns, golds and that gorgeous green. I needs it and I wants it! ?

The Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette is said to be limited edition and should be popping up online and in stores around April 14th for $49. I think it’s going to be a hit for neutral shadow lovers and makeup junkies alike and I can’t wait to check it out! Will you be grabbing the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette this summer?

There’s been a few makeup brands putting in overtime this year and Tarte is definitely one of them. First, Tarte dropped the insanely beautiful Tartelette in Bloom Palette. Then we started seeing sneak peeks of their upcoming Rainforest of the Sea Collection on Instagram that looks freakin’ amazing. And now the Tartelette Tease Palette has made its way to Ulta to make us lose our minds and coins. Damn you Tarte!

Who loves chocolate? Fancie loves chocolate! I do, I do, I dooooo! After last year’s holiday season, the last thing I needed was more eyeshadow but Too Faced’s Chocolate Bar Collection is so delectably delicious that there was no way I could deny the new Chocolate Bon Bons Palette for spring. Not only does it smell like chocolate but it’s also covered in pink and features cute heart shaped pans. Could you imagine me not buying it? Nah.

January was a very long month for me but boy was it packed with a lot fun and new makeup! I did quite a lot of shopping over the holiday season so I had a ton of new goodies to play and fall in love with that made last month extra exciting and fun. From new skincare goodies to makeup palettes galore, I dabbled in a little of everything and ended up discovering some pretty cool products that I just couldn’t do without in January.

On Wednesdays We Wear Pink!

On Wednesdays We Wear Pink

I’ve been a bit of an eyeshadow palette junkie lately but if I had to choose just one to live with for the rest of my days it would probably be the limited edition Too Faced Stardust Palette by Vegas Nay. I totally wish Too Faced would make it permanent because it was like one of the best holiday palettes released last year. And a great Pink Wednesday feature since it’s covered in pink and polka dots.
