Colourpop I Think I Love You Palette Review:

My eyeshadow palette obsession is growing out of proportion glamour babes, and Colourpop’s I Think I Love You Palette ($16 for 0.36 oz) isn’t making my addiction any better. I want to collect them (CP Palettes) all!

What’s the first step when having an addiction? Admit that you have a problem. So far so good. Lol.
The 12 pan vegan friendly pressed shadow palette contains 8 Metallics and 4 matte shades ranging in the bronze/gold family.

Bitter Better- is a soft metallic gold

Bel Air- is a matte cool taupe

Fancy Face- is a metallic bright red copper

Girls Bite is a metallic golden bronze

Howdy is a metallic bronze

Rowdy is a matte warm ivory

My Treat is a metallic champagne ivory

Level up is a metallic bright copper penny. My favorite.

Screw it is a metallic soft rose gold

Let’s do it is a matte true black


Rule Breaker is a metallic bright yellow gold

My type is a matte deep saddle brown

There’s no questioning as to how I feel about this palette. I.LOVE.IT. Not like or I think I like, its full fledged love. Like a cheesy scene from a movie. Arrow is shot through the heart as glitter, hearts, and a rainbow fall and dance over my head.

The formulation of CP Pressed Shadows are fantastic! They have a smooth, creamy texture, are lightweight, comfortable to wear, easy to apply, blendable, buildable, super pigmented, and every shade in this palette work extremely well together creating zero debris. It’s a very versatile palette when wanting to dress your eye look up or down.

I am a huge fan of bronze eyeshadows. The rich brown metallic hues make my blue gray eyes pop and add a touch of warmth to my complexion. CP I think I Love You Palette was definitely made for me. Literally. Lol.

Wear time was over 10 hours. I wore this to work (8 hour day) followed by a dinner engagement and the shades remained intact. There was no creasing, running, or any eye irritation. My eyes looked beautiful the entire night. I am so happy with this palette. It’s perfect for the fall and winter season, and just about anyone who loves to play with eyeshadow. I highly recommend.

Colourpop’s I Think I Love You Palette is the quintessential secret Santa gift for under $20! Dasher (reindeer humor) over to colourpop.com and put this one in your sack.

Stay beautiful! Xo.

The Beauty Crop Lighting Crew Highlighting Cream Review:

Happy Monday glamour babes! Did you miss me?! Sorry I was MIA for so long. I had a lot going on, but now I’m back and we can return to our regularly scheduled program-makeup reviews!

Up for discussion, The Beauty Crop Lighting Crew Highlighting Cream ($12 for 0.34 fl. oz). I received this as a PR sample for reviewing purposes. I never heard of The Beauty Crop before, and was over the moon that they reached out to me to try their cosmetics. Who doesn’t love makeup samples?! Especially the cruelty free kind!

INGREDIENTS: water (aqua), glycerin, acrylates copolymer, triethanolamine, ananas sativus (pineapple) fruit extract, camellia sinensis (green tea) leaf extract, phenoxyethanol. [+/- (may contain) (peut contenir) mica, titanium dioxide (CI 77891), iron oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77891)]

The Beauty Crop’s Philosophy……

Our philosophy is that nutrition is as equally essential for your skin as it is for your body. Inspired by the healthy recipes we cook in the kitchen, we are passionate about creating colourful, fun and uber-hydrating cosmetics that include nutrition-rich superfood ingredients (natural oils and plant based) that promote health and wellbeing.

Our products are 100% cruelty-free. We do not test on animals, only on friends and family!

If you want beautiful, fun, guilt-free, high-performing color cosmetics that won’t just make you look good but feel good too, look no further than The Beauty Crop!

I love, love, love their philosophy! It’s a great feeling to know that some cosmetic companies actually do care about what they put into their products, and are conscious of the ingredients. They get a gold star in my book, and a smiley face.

TBC Lighting Crew Highlighting Cream comes in one shade-Love you so matcha. I don’t even think I need to describe the way I feel about this highlighter. The shade name speaks volumes lol. Hopefully, TBC will whip up some more shades. I really like this highlighter cream. Maybe something in the gold family? Hint, hint, wink, wink.

Love you so matcha is a soft, sheer pearly pink. It has light capturing, micronized, pearlescent pigments to give you a youthful and healthy glow.

The oil free formula is lightweight, creamy, comfortable to wear, easy to apply, blendable, buildable, pigmented, hydrating, doesn’t feel greasy or sticky, flatters all skin tones, and has an infusion of powerful antioxidants from Pineapple and Green Tea to nourish skin.

The tube is rather tiny for what you get, but a little does goes a long way with this product.

I use a mini blending sponge with a dabbing motion to accentuate my cheek bones, Cupid’s bow, brow area, and bridge of the nose. You can also use this as a cream eyeshadow for a sheer wash of color and shimmer on the lids, or mix it with your favorite foundation for a luminous look. It’s very pretty.

Color payoff is 8 hours. I did not think it would last all day through. I never have much luck with cream or liquid highlighters. Usually for me because I have oily skin, they wear off in like four hours. Not this one though. My skin looked so fresh and dewy the whole day. You might wanna give it try, just sayin…..

The Beauty Crop Lighting Crew Highlighting Cream is available on their website at www.thebeautycrop.com.

Think you’ll get one?

Do tell!

Stay beautiful! Xo.

Urban Decay Afterglow Highlighter Palette Review:

Happy November glamour babes! Halloween may be over, but I still got a treat in store for you! Urban Decay’s After Glow Highlighter Palette ($34 for 0.64oz) is sure to make you scream. In a good way though. Lol.

I picked this up last Friday. Ulta was having some pretty nice hot buy deals going on, and this gorgeous palette happened to be on sale for $17!
Urban Decay Afterglow highlighters are one of my favorites. I own two of them. They leave a beautiful radiant glow on the skin and last for hours. So, of course I had to purchase their palette. Four shades for $17 instead of paying $26 for one?! Do you take visa?

The Afterglow Highlighter Palette comes housed in a slim square case (mirror included) that creates a shifting rose colored effect, depending on how the light hits it. A magnetic closure keeps the palette safely shut to prevent future makeup calamities in ones bag when traveling.

Shades include:

Bliss is a pale gold w/ golden shift

Peroxide is an iridescent pink

NSFW is a peachy pink

Side Piece is a golden peach


Infused with light diffusing pigments. The finely milled formula has a lightweight feel, and a super soft, creamy texture. The shades are sheer, but have high pigmentation. I hope that makes sense. It did in my head, lol. No matter how much you build, whether it’s a little or a lot. A lovely wash of color produces on the skin, and is accompanied by a gorgeous pearlized glow. They are comfortable to wear, easy to apply, go on smoothly, blendable, buildable, and flatter all skin tones.

The palette is completely customizable or you can wear the shades individually. Apply them to your cheekbones, brow bone, Cupid’s bow, and bridge of nose. However you choose, there’s no way you can go wrong. Its highlighter, create what makes you happy!

Wear time is all day, which is why I love UD Highlighters so much. They stay on the skin for hours (as mentioned before) and the glow looks just as good as when you first applied it. Sale or no sale, treat yoself to this palette. It’s a stunner on the complexion.

Urban Decay’s Afterglow Highlighter Palette is exclusively available at Ulta and UrbanDecayCosmetics.com.

Stay beautiful! Xo.

Makeup Revolution Ghost Lights Highlighter Review:

As Halloween quickly creeps upon us, and we scurry for last minute accessories this weekend to complete our ghastly creations. I thought Makeup Revolution Ghost Lights Highlighter ($6.00) would be an otherworldly finishing touch to unearth out of the makeup grave yard.

Ghost Lights is an iridescent pearlescent white highlighter with a pink shift. Add to your cheekbones, bridge of nose, cupids bow and brow bone for a beautiful spine chilling glow that will leave everyone gasping, including myself. Lol.

The baked formula is lightweight, finely milled, super pigmented, smooth, comfortable to wear, blendable, buildable, easy to apply, and compliments all skin tones.
I have been wearing Ghost Lights everyday this week and I love it. It’s a pretty versatile highlighter for daytime wear if you go light handed with the application. I also apply it to the inner corner of my eyes for an extra pop of brightness. That should keep those pesky vampires away. No one is going to suck anyone’s blood today or any day for that matter, so be gone! Shoo, scat! I got eau de parfum of garlic too!

The wear time is a little short lived. Five hours, but it fades nicely into a soft dewy pearl glow. If you need a spellblinding glow through All Hallows’ eve. Just throw Makeup Revolution Ghost Lights into your bag of tricks and treats. It’s completely travel friendly and makes good company.

Hop on your broomsticks and fly on over to Ulta. Makeup Revolution Ghost Lights Highlighter is soon to vanish, for Halloween only comes but once a year.

Stay beautiful witches! Xo.
