I just realized I haven’t done a beauty review in FOREVER. So I thought I’d select one of my recent Sephora hauls to discuss. I already bought some Fenty Beauty pieces before, so I knew I liked the quality (I’m kinda fighting with the highlighters, but we’re working things out). So I thought I’d check out the limited edition holiday 2017 collection. I’m so glad I did!
I tend to panic-purchase when things are “limited edition” and “limited quantity.” So it’s no surprise I opted to try a few things from the collection. I had to get the Galaxy Eyeshadow Palette ($59). I haven’t fully played around with it, but using a “glitter glue” eyeshadow primer is recommended. I personally use the Too Faced Shadow Insurance Glitter Glue. I believe ELF and NYX make a more affordable version, but I haven’t tried them. I really hate spending more than $40-$50 on an eyeshadow palette, but it got good reviews. The colors are so pretty in person, the pictures from my phone do this zero justice. They are so much more vibrant in person! I will post pictures of an eye look when I have a chance, I will probably use it for Halloween.
In addition to the eyeshadow, I picked up all three colors of the 2-in-1 Glitter Release eyeliner. I thought the “Nepturnt” and “Alien Bae” colors looked very similar when I first swatched them. But when they are dry, you rub them to reveal the glitter. Once I did that, you can see the colors are different. Not sure I will use “Later, Crater” as an eyeliner, as I don’t like using light colors as eyeliner. But it is so pretty, I will try it out as an eyeshadow on the inner corners.
