JUVIA'S PLACE WARRIOR PALETTE ✮Product Name✮

✮Review✮ There are a couple of brands that you will rarely if ever, hear me speak ill of. At the top of the list is Natasha Denona, and following in at a close second is Juvia's Place. Most people think that this is Juvia's first neutral palette, but it isn't. There very first palette, "The Nubian," is a beautifully constructed neutral palette, but "The Warrior Palette" takes the concepts created in the "The Nubian Palette" to the next level. The mattes, of course, are blendable and rich in pigment and the shimmers are varying and help the consumer create numerous innovative eye looks. And of course, to make things even better, the price is just outstanding. Nothing bad to say.

✮Rate✮ 10/10 A marvelous representation of a properly constructed neutral palette, especially for people of color. Well done!

PAT MCGRATH SUBMERSIVE ✮Product Name✮

✮Review✮ This is the first (of many) Auntie Pat Palettes that I have purchased. I am definitely one to promote Black Owned Makeup Brands, but B.O.M.B. that are ALSO Luxury......well, that's just what my life is all about. This is a wonderful palette with a unique and diverse color story with a variety of tones and textures enabling the user to create looks that are every day appropriate as well as glam af.

✮Rate✮ 10/10 The packaging alone is outstanding, from the box to the actually luxurious feel of the palette. High quality eyeshadows appropriate for a wide variety of consumers.

✭Rotate✮ Are you kidding me?

COLOURED RAINE QUEEN OF HEARTS ✮Product Name✮

✮Review✮ This is one of my top 5 eyeshadow palettes. Before NikkieTutorials even knew who Coloured Raine was, I was already creating amazing looks with this palette. They just had a huge half off sale and I repurchase a back up of this palette. What does that tell you?

✮Rate✮ 10/10  If it's good, it's good, and this is damn good. A beautiful color story that is perfect for an everyday work look, or a smoked out eye look for the evening.

ACE BEAUTE FALLEN PARADISE ✮Product Name✮

✮Review✮ Another brand that I am such a fan of is Ace Beaute. I was dying to get this palette. I love purple tones on my dark eyes and this palette is just amazing. Although I have seen mixed reviews, I couldn't be more pleased. It's just an amazingly beautiful palette and I am so pleased with this purchase.

✮Rate✮ 10/10 Another fine palette this week. Very happy to own this and looking forward to using this more throughout the winter season.

REVOLUTION MAKEUP X SOPH✮Product Name✮

✮Review✮ I am conflucted over Revolution Makeup or Makeup Revolution (whatever the hell the name is). I love their 7 palettes with the clear plastic cover. I think they are amazing for the price, but I was significantly underwhelmed by this palette. I wanted to love it. I really did, but the mattes just blended away - poof! Into nothingness. . . .The shimmers were subpar and I prefer something with a little more pigment! 

✮Rate✮ 5/10 Not worth even the $15. Not pleased at all but the color story is quite nice. Perfect for beginners or teenagers.

✭Rotate✮ This is going to be donated to Project Beauty Share.


BH COSMETICS FESTIVAL PALETTE ✮Product Name✮

✮Review✮ BH Cosmetics has some hits and misses and this is definitely a HIT! I love this palette. It's affordable, it's accessible, you can often catch it on a sale deal, and the shadows perform extremely well. The color story is stunning. Just a great little palette for the price and I would even pay a bit more.

✮Rate✮ 9/10 Love this palette, and I look forward to using it a bit more in the summer time.

✭Rotate✮ Nope, keeping this one. CLICK HERE TO GO TO BH COSMETIC'S WEBSITE!

NYX CHEEK PALETTE ✮Product Name✮

✮Review✮ I think this palette is too expensive for the drugstore. Period. Point blank. Fortunately, I paid 7 dollars for it on Mercari and that would have been the only way I would have purchased it. It's a great cheek palette with a couple of highlighters and several blushes. I love the tones in the blushes, which are right up my ally in terms of color family. Applies very well and looks amazing on tan skin.

✮Rate✮ 8/10 The price is ridiculous. $20 for a drugstore cheek palette is stupid. NYX needs to decide if they're going to be a true drugstore brand or attempt the jump over to high end. That being said I really enjoyed using it and it works well with my skin tone and texture.

 ✮Product Name✮ VINTAGE BY JESSICA LIEBSKIND

✮Review✮  This is one of my favorite highlighting palettes. If I am not mistaken, I received this in a Boxycharm. The tones of this palette are gorgeous and the powders themselves are so silky smooth to the touch. They apply so beautifully and I find that they provide a unique glow to my skin. I really like this palette.

✮Rate✮ 9/10 The only minus in my eyes is the cheap-ish packaging. Too beautiful of a product to be housed in such cruddy packaging.

✭Rotate✮ This is a KEEP!


✮Product Name✮ Sleek Highlighter Palette Cleopatra

✮Review✮ Huge fan of Sleek MakeUp's face products. Their highlighters & blushes are just damn beautiful and this is no exception. Beautifully unique colors & tones that can be applied to a wide range of skin tones!

✮Rate✮ 10/10 Very happy with this product!

✭Rotate✮ Another keep!


✮Product Name✮ Sleek Highlighter Palette Solstice 

✮Review✮ Another face product that I am loving from Sleek MakeUp. This one came to fame on YouTube by means of Jaclyn Hill (I think). Absolutely beautiful!

✮Rate✮ 10/10 Really happy with this product.

✭Rotate✮ Another one for the keep column!


✮Product Name✮ PUR Minerals Bronzer

✮Review✮ For the longest I believed that tan people like myself didn''t need or couldn't use bronzers and that they wouoldn't make a difference, but I was very wrong. I LOVE this bronzer. It has a minute amoutn of finely milled micro glitter that gives a beautiful sheen to the skin. 

✮Rate✮ 8.75/10 I can't stand the packaging, but everything inside is pure gold!

✭Rotate✮ Another for the keep column!
