Review Morphe 35R (Ready, Set Gold)

Morphe 35 R Palette

The Morphe 35R is gorgeous, it has 20 matte shadows and 15 shimmer shadows. The pigmentation and blendability is great. If you have the Morphe 350, I feel like these are even better. Initially, I was worried that this wouldn't be a great everyday palette because of all the dark shades, but you can easily have a beautiful warm daytime look. This is one of my "go to" palettes, and I love the shade selection. I purchased mine through Morphe, but if you're in Canada and afraid of custom fees and high shipping fees Orabel has these in stock now. I've purchased through them quite a few times, and their shipping is really quick since were both in Montreal.

If I had to choose between this palette and the 35O, I would pick the 35R. I love the shimmer shades more. Morphe shadows last really long on my eyes, and don't fade throughout the day. I've purchased highend palettes that fade so fast on my eyes. These are worth the price, and great for a variety of makeup lovers.

*Update: Morphe has a Canadian Site that you can purchase through and shipping is much more affordable.

Makeup Haul (Stila, Tarte, Smashbox)

Smashbox Pearl Highlight Palette

I purchased the Smashbox palette in Pearl, and it is one of my favorite highlighters. These highlighters do not emphasize any texture on your skin, and I love it for an every day work highlighter.  I don't think I will buy the Gold palette because I'm so fair. If you were on the fence about this palette, I would try it. Congratulations Casey Holmes, you did a great job!

Stila Star Light, Star Bright Palette. Heaven's Hue Trio Palette (Transcendence, Kitten, Bronze)

This was a holiday palette for 2016, and now the highlighters are sold individually. I was REALLY lucky to find the trio palette on sale at Winner's. As soon as I saw it, I knew it had to come home with me. I really love these highlighters because you can go natural or more intense. I tried applying it with a brush and fingers, and I feel like applying with your fingers is the way to go. Kitten and Transcendence are my favorite.

Tarte Pro To Go Palette

This little palette stays in my makeup train case and I use it when I'm in a rush and the palette is just there. The eyeshadows are very easy to blend and the shimmers are very shimmery and pretty. At some point, I will probably pick up the Tarte Pro. The Tartelette in Bloom is one of my favorite palettes.

Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter and Glow in Bronzed Bell

This eyeshadow is intense and so beautiful! If you get a chance to swatch these, do. They will blow you away.

Review: Carli Bybel BH Cosmetics Deluxe Palette

Carli Bybel palette
B H Cosmetics Carli Bybel Deluxe Edition

I purchased the Carli Bybel palette when it first launched, and boy was that not an easy task. B H Cosmetics site was so slow to load and it was almost impossible to checkout. I finally did checkout and my order went through however, B H Cosmetics had so many issues they refunded all the others and we had to start over. It was posted on the Pranava Beauty site later that evening and I checked out without a problem. Purchasing palettes on launch day are stressful...

I really love this palette for everyday. The colors are great for work and offer a variety of options. The pink and oranges are very on trend and the highlighters are so pigmented and last all day on my skin. I have the first Carli Bybel palette and I loved the highlighters and not so much the eye shadows. This palette I love both. The transition colors really seal the deal on this palette for me. I felt like her first palette didn't have those warm matte shades that I always want. 

The packaging is also very cute and the palette is not bulky. Bulky packaging is not my thing. All in all I really like this palette and will continue to recommend this one. 

Bebella 35C Palette (Similar to Jaclyn Hill Favorites Palette)

Jaclyn Hill Morphe Dupe
Bebella 35C Palette

The Bebella 35C palettes is currently one of my favorite palettes. I love the colors and the quality is great for every day. The packaging is very identical to Morphe palettes, including not having a mirror. I picked this palette up when I saw someone mention that this was a dupe for the Morphe Jaclyn Hill Favorites palette that was released 2015. At that time, I was really starting to get into makeup but I didn't pay much attention to those big releases. I missed out on the palette, and was happy to find this one. It a great palette that I find myself coming back to over and over. The range of shades inspires me to try something different, and I love having large palettes to work with. The Jaclyn Hill palette is 28 shadows and this has one extra row. In the end, I can't tell you their an exact dupe since I don't a have the original one to compare it to, but here is a picture, if you're interested. I purchased mine through H B Beauty Bar and shipping to Canada was fast. I managed to get the new Jaclyn Hill palette and as soon as I get it, i'll be posting.
