Face Candy Unicorn Glow Highlighter Palette Review:

Happy hump day unicorns! I can’t stop prancing about Face Candy’s Unicorn Glow Highlighter Palette ($10 for 0.16 oz)!

I discovered this brand when purchasing Bad Habit Beauty eyeshadow palettes on the Shop Hush Site, and thought, hey, why not? It’s cheap enough and looks really pretty, and I happen to love highlighters. Immensely. So, in the cart you go!

Face Candy did not disappoint. The shades and the packaging is beautiful. And, this happens to be a dupe of ABH Aurora Glow Kit! That’s going to easily save you $30. Hooray! More gift giving. To you! Lol.

Details:

Unleash your inner unicorn and glow-up with this innovative duo-chrome palette featuring six holographic shades. Formulated with Face Candy’s Dual Pearled Technology, these highly pigmented and creamy shades give off an intensely luminous payoff. These 6 shades give you the freedom to explore and create unique custom finishes on your face, body, and eyes.

Wonder is yellow gold pearl with a turquoise shift.

Dream is a pink champagne pearl with a peach shift.

Stardust is a mother of pearl with an icy orchid shift.

Celestial is an icy blue pearl with a purple shift.

Enchanted is a rose gold pearl with a champagne orchid shift.

Fantasy is an icy lilac pearl with a blue/green shift

The shade shifting is faint indoors. To catch a better glimpse of the duo-chrome finish, natural lighting is far better.

You can wear Unicorn Glow a few ways. I’m wearing celestial on my cheeks, and I applied dream as a lip topper over my lip balm. NYC is my inspiration for my frosty glow. It’s brick outside. I tried the eyes, but I wasn’t digging it. The shades are too pastelly for my taste. The highlighters can be applied either wet or dry too if you want to manipulate the intensity.

The formula is finely milled. So, expect some kickback when picking up color with a brush. The highlighter shades are lightweight, have a buttery smooth texture, comfortable to wear, easy to apply, blendable, buildable, highly pigmented, flatters all skin-tones, and sets in a pearlized/duo-chrome finish.

Wear time is about 6 hours before it fully fades. I didn’t mind though. I use FC Unicorn Glow Palette more for night time anyway, and by the time it fades, this unicorn is too tired to notice from all the galloping she has done around town. Lol.

Face Candy’s Unicorn Glow Palette is unavailable on the ShopHush site, but is currently available on their (shophush) app. If you download the app, you will recieve free shipping on every order.

I’m getting a warm, fuzzy feeling inside that these will make great gifts for all your one horned magical friends.

Happy Haulidays!

Stay beautiful! Xo.

Elf Cosmetics Beauty Shield Setting Powder Review:

Happy Saturday glamour babes! What do you do when you go through your entire stash of setting powders like they have gone out of style? You don’t walk, you run or drive like a mad women to the nearest Elf Cosmetics Store and try their new Beauty Shield Setting Powder ($8.00 for 0.28 Ounces).

I always gotta have a setting powder on hand. I’m pretty co-dependent on them if you can’t tell. Lol. My skin is super oily/acne prone and this one has been keeping my t-zone and blemishes under wraps quite well.

DETAILS:

This loose powder provides sheer, lightweight coverage and can be worn alone for a natural look, or used as a makeup setting powder. The velvety soft texture helps even skin tone, and minimize the appearance of pores for a flawless finish. Formulated with key antioxidants, Licorice Extract, Vitamin E, Vitamin C to help protect your skin against everyday environmental aggressors.

Formulated without:

Alcohol

Parabens

Sulfates

Phthalates

***Cruelty free and VEGAN!!!!*** Yippie!

Elf’s Beauty Shield Setting Powder comes in two shades-Sheer Natural or Sheer Golden. I bought Sheer Natural. Sheer Golden looked like it was more for medium to deep complexions.

The powder is really nice. Its super smooth, finely milled, lightweight, sheer, has a silky texture. It’s easy to apply, easy to blend, comfortable to wear, sets in a natural/matte finish, does not cake, crack or settle into fine lines, and is suitable for all skin types.

Good thinking Elf with the dial design for less product waste. I like that I can control the amount of powder I need to create a flawless face, while blurring some skin imperfections in the process.

I love how it melts right into the skin after application. It doesn’t come off as chalky or powdery, nor does it leave you looking Casperish.

I do happen to use this setting powder both ways-alone and on top of my makeup to lock everything in place, followed by a setting spray. My complexion is perfection afterwards.

I get about 8 hours of wear time, and my skin stays intact most of the day. Towards the end I start to notice oil peeking through the t-zone area, but that’s fixable.

Definitely check this setting powder out. It’s completely affordable and gets the job done nicely.

Elf’s Beauty Shield Setting Powder is available at Elf Stores and elfcosmetics.com

Bad Habit Beauty Athena Eyeshadow Palette Review:

Hold on to your eyeshadow brushes glamour babes, I have more dupetacular news to share with you!
Are you ready for this one?! K, here it goes…….
Deep breath in. Pause. And out.
Bad Habit Beauty’s Newest Eyeshadow Palette, Athena ($12) is a dupe of Huda Beauty’s Desert Dusk Palette!!!! ($65). They are identical to one another. Its craymazing!
I know. I’m becoming a Bad Habit Beauty junkie, but my addiction is saving you money in the process, and I am more than happy to bargain hunt for my awesome followers.
Let’s take a peek at the comparison.
Inspired by the Greek goddess of wisdom, this 18 shade collection features four unique textures. Athena has 8 soft and bold mattes, 6 buttery pearled shimmers, 3 shade shifting duo chrome toppers, and one eye-catching glitter.

Fierce is a pearl medium gold.
Triumph is a pearl taupe.
Valour is a soft orange sherbet.
Purity is a soft custard.
Truth is a muted taupe.
Heroic is a warm medium brown.
Gleam is a soft brown with a green to blue shift.
Epic is a shimmering lavender with a blue violet to pink shift.
Medusa is a shimmering golden pink.
Justice is a dark purple magenta.
Lore is a terra cotta orange.
Power is a warm medium red.
Divine is a pearl medium copper penny.
Cunning is a sparkling peach with a gold to pink shift.
Wisdom is a deep grape jelly
Prize is a copper cranberry red.
Daring is a glittery dark copper. This is the eye catching glitter finish. The glitter is quite chunky, so you will need to use a glitter primer or adhesive of some sort to keep this shade from migrating throughout the day. A flat rounded eyeshadow brush or finger tip works best when applying, and it creates the most fallout out of the 18.
Clever is a rich cocoa with a purplish red undertone.
I seriously could not stop staring at this palette when it arrived, I had a hard time putting Athena down. I felt like Gollum from Lord of the rings for a moment-“My precious! Must protect the precious.” Snapping out of it. Lol!
The formula is amazing. Lightweight, buttery smooth, creamy, insanely pigmented, comfortable to wear, easy to apply, blends out evenly and easily, buildable, produces little fallout, and flatters all skin tones. It’s hard to believe that this a $12 palette. Athena looks and feels very high end.
Wear time with a primer is about 8-9 hours. After that, I started to see the bold colors of the desert slowly fade into the night.
Do you think you’ll grab this Huda Beauty dupe once she restocks on the ShopHush app? 
Bad Habit Beauty Athena is just as popular as her beloved sister Aphrodite, if not more so.
Grab her as fast as you can!
I’ll be sure to post a restock update on my blog when ShopHush announces her debut for the second time around.
Stay beautiful! Xo.
