Have you ever had a brand that you seem to see every where and hear a ton about but never seem to get around to trying it? Welp that’s me and Cover FX, I always have their items on my to buy list but never really took the plunge until recently. I recently went on a buying spree and picked up all the brands I’ve had my eye on so without further ado, this kicks off the post kicks off the start of my Cover FX review month.
So as you know I have been on a palette hiatus because nine times out of ten I can’t make half of the shades work for me… Wait a minute I have to start this post the only way that can be remotely appropriate…
Jackie, Jackie, Jackie, Jackie…Jackie Jackie…. if you don’t already know that intro do better. #imjudgingyou.
As I was previously saying finding a palette that I can do a complete eye look with is a rarity for me unless I am creating a single pan palette and picking the exact shades I want inside it. It is often that four or five shades interest me and look good on my skin and the other shades are super ashy or look like chalk. It is that reason that when I saw this collaboration happening with ABH I knew I had to jump on it. Not only is this the type of palette that you can make everyday wearable looks with but you can also kick it up a notch with the fun shades and duo-chromes included. It is essentially the perfect travel palette and will permanently have a place on my vanity.
I mean when you hear someone say that the shades they created were specifically formulated for deeper skin tones, highly saturated so they show up on the richest of ebony splendors (if you get that reference then 10 points to Gryffindor), and also look amazing on the fairest of skin you can’t help but buy it. But I’ll stop gushing now and get into what we all want to hear about which is an actual review.
The packaging feels very luxe, the kind of material you would expect on an expensive purse. It makes it so that any dirt or debris would easily wipe off, a much welcomed change from the standard velour packaging of other ABH Palettes.
The shades apply beautifully to the eye and blend seamlessly. The shimmers are creamy and there is minimal to no fallout with most of the shades. The matte shades are not for the faint of heart as they are very pigmented! The matte deep drown is a dream come true for every girl who is afraid of blacks. It provides the impact that the black would have without the harshness.
Overall this palette not only meets expectations but exceeds them! I would 10/10 recommend this to anyone looking for a do-it-all palette.
Have you purchased it yet? If so, what are your thoughts?
I love a good eye shadow moment and I love when companies come out with customized quads with coordinating colors that cut down the time it would take to find colors that go together… its kinda like the paint by colors of your makeup routine. So when I saw the LA Girl Eye Lux quads I had to get some and try them out i put them in my big box o’ reviews and promptly forgot about them until now…6 months later. So without further ado lets dive right in shall we?
Lets go on a friendcation! If you know anything about makeup then you have either heard of Desi Perkins or Katy (aka LustreLux) or seen some of their amazing makeup looks. I personally first found them through their affiliation with Ipsy and have been a fan of the girls ever since. When they first collaborated with Dose of Color I missed the boat, but this time I was determined to get my hands on one of their launches. So without further ado her goes the latest review on a launch ever!
The Glittered rose gold packaging is just as luxe as you would expect from the ladies and the size is perfect for both travel and storing with a mid sized mirror built it it makes doing eye looks an ease without having to worry about it being clunky or bulky. The textured front gives it a bit of flash as well as helping to resist staining which is a huge plus.
Product / Shade Range
The Pigments themselves speak volumes, when I watched their announcement video the mentioned how pigmented and creamy and easy to blend the matte shades where and I have to say they were right not only do they swatch well but they apply to the eye like a dream. The shimmers are definitely something to see in person… they perform like they are wet and apply to the eye almost like a gloss. While there are some shades that won’t get too much use from me I still like the palette for its diverse shade range and ease to create a full look without reaching for another palette.
I definitely debated on whether I really need this palette in my collection and I can say now that I am very glad that I decided to pick it up. It was worth every penny and I can say with out a doubt that this palette is …
Did you pick up this palette? Do you plan to get it? Let me know your thought down below 🙂
August seems to be speeding by and now we are dealing with the hot humid aftermath. I decided to sit down and film a little video telling you all about some of the things I loved throughout the month of August. I hope you enjoy watching it cause I had a blast filming it.
There’s always that one product that you tell your self you don’t need and you have no intention of ever using in your routine but then you use it and realize that not only were you missing out but you were missing out big time. Welp, that is exactly how I’m currently feeling about the Wet-N-Wild MegaGlo Hello Halo Liquid Highlighter, while it is definitely not what I expected when I started using it I welcome it in my routine.
