Review: Flower Beauty Shimmer & Strobe Highlighting Palette! (Swatches + Look!)

Drugstore Highlighting Palette!

Flower Beauty Shimmer & Strobe Highlighting Palette
I saw a few of my favorite influencers rave about the Flower Beauty Shimmer & Strobe Highlighting Palette so I went to my local Walmart to snag it up! I mean... when you spot a highlighting palette at the drugstore for only $13 you gotta get it, right? haha. For the price you get three highlighting shades and a brush, all in beautiful white and rose gold packaging...sold!

The formula is so silky! They actually remind me of the metallic/shimmer shadows in the Covergirl TruNaked Palettes, really smooth, thin feeling but lots of sheen. I love the different shades they included because they're suitable for most if not all skintones. They apply great dry but it you want to blind a friend or two definitely apply them wet! What I appreciate the most is how long they last! I've used this palette early in the morning and by the end of the day the highlight is still pretty noticeable.

Here are the swatches! I wanted to show you how they looked in natural light vs with flash. With flash you can tell the level of shine it has on the skin, so beautiful! I'm wearing a mix of the champagne shade + the golden one in the picture below. I love how it looks on the skin, it melts into your makeup instead of just awkwardly sitting on top.

Bottom line: I'm a huge fan of this palette! I like the variety in the shades and how you can mix and match them to create your perfect highlight. It's a perfect travel palette too! I'm really impressed with the formula and the price is amazing too. Check it out on your next Walmart trip! :-)

Must Haves: Pixi + ItsJudyTime "ItsEyeTime" Palette! (Swatches + Looks!)

Perfect "Everyday" Colors!

Pixi + ItsJudyTime "ItsEyeTime" Palette
I've been a HUGE fan of Judy from ItsJudyTime for years so imagine how excited I was when this palette released! She had a palette with bh Cosmetics sometime ago but I skipped on it because of the color selection. When I saw her swatch this palette I could've sworn my heat skipped a beat, haha. These warmer shades are exactly what I gravitate towards so I ordered it immediately from the Pixi website... and I love it!

It's my first time trying Pixi shadows and I'm super impressed! The mattes blend so well and the metallics are nicely pigmented and vibrant. This palette retails for $24 which makes each shadow $2! That's a great deal for that large of a pan size! I love the packaging, simple but nice and sturdy. The names are so cute too! It does come with a detached mirror so you can decide where to stick it to but I decided to not use it. Lets get into the swatches:

This palette has amazing transition colors! At first glance some may look similar but on the eyes they're different. They blend amazingly... can't stress that enough! I found it very easy to create both everyday looks and smokier looks like the ones below.

If you love Judy and her family + warm shades are your jam this is a must have! I think the price point is great and the fact that you can walk into your local Target and get it is also amazing! The formula is beautiful and I appreciate how even though its a collab with a YouTuber it's not overpriced like other releases. Pick this up on your next Target run! :-)

OOTD: Easy & Comfy! (Featuring Justfab!)

Comfy For Work!

It's February and I'm wearing a short sleeve T-Shirt?! I know! It's been in the 50's these past few days and I'm loving it. I wanted to give my taller boots a break and give my booties a turn. The "Arika" style is super cute and so comfortable. It has a textile print on the back of the bootie that adds a little something something. I thought they went perfectly with my simple "throw on and go" outfit, keeping it casual with some character! :-)

Review: J.CAT Beauty Sunset Boulevard Eyeshadow Palette! (Swatches + Look!)

NEW Drugstore Palette!

J.CAT Beauty Sunset Boulevard Eyeshadow Palette
J.Cat Beauty... you had me at Sunset! haha. Today I'll be sharing my thoughts on the NEW J.Cat Beauty Sunset Boulevard Palette. I ordered mine from for $14.99 and it's only available online. This palette intrigued me for so many reasons, one being the color scheme, I mean it's beautiful! Another reason was the format of the palette. I love how there's two rows of mattes and two rows of shimmers just like the LORAC palettes. I've tried it out so lets get into the details!

This was my first time trying J.Cat Beauty eyeshadows and I was pleasantly surprised! The matte shadows are so smooth and blend so well! I do think they could've exchanged some colors for others because some of them look very similar on the eyes (mattes and shimmers). The shimmer shades were very pigmented and almost creamy to the touch. They reminded me of the City Color Cosmetics Shimmer Shadows but a little chunkier. They crumbled up as soon as I put my brush into them but once they got on the eye they applied great. I love the metallic finish of the bottom two rows, so pretty!

Here's a look I came up with using the palette. I wanted to do something different so I used the purples and I love how it came out! There was fall out but not too much. My main con with the palette is that there's not many light shades. There's no brow bone or inner corner highlight which is a bummer.

Bottom line: If you're a warm shadow lover this palette is for you! I love how it mimics a sunset just like the name but I will say that most colors are very similar. I owned the Morphe 35O palette and sold it because even though the colors were gorgeous, I didnt need 5 of the same shades! That's kinda the same feeling I'm getting with this palette. The plus side is there's only 24 shades vs 35 haha.
