I got these things a few weeks ago but I’m just getting to posting it now-sorry y’all. It’s been a busy few weeks. So here we go!
I sorta don’t love Morphe, I’ll be totally honest. I made an exception, however.
The Morphe Setting Spray is really, really good. The spray is perfect-not aggressive and not super perfume-y. I’m a fan, despite it being Morphe. I mean, if it’s good, it’s good.
I had never seen or heard of these until that day in Ulta. The Metallic Heat Metallic Eyeshadow is a limited edition, holiday 2018 release which explains that-
These absolutely knocked my socks off. The pigmentation is absolutely stunning-one swipe and they’re opaque, blinding, and beautiful. They’re reasonably priced-12$ for the 3.
The copper is called Fuego, the champagne is Flare, and the olive green is Ignite. I’m seriously thrilled with these and glad I discovered them.
We hit Sephora next-and that was a success as well.
I’ve been hearing rave after rave about the new Fenty Beauty Diamond Bomb in How Many Carats? and really had to investigate. The Sephora employee did her job well, because she added to the FOMO factor so I HAD to get it. But look at the packaging, even:
The actual product packaging is to die for as well:’
Fenty Beauty knows what’s up. I gotta give them that.
I had the Killawatt Highlighter in Trophy Wife (I say had because I gave it away-I hadn’t used it in months, and I wanted her to go to a good home where she’d get some use) and that formula is very, very different from this one-this one being better in my opinion. Trophy Wife is more chunky glitter, and has a little drier texture. The Diamond Bomb is softer, less chunkiness.
The application is a bit more sheer than I expected-it can be used alone or as a topper (I put it on top of Colourpop’s Flexatarian and holy cat’s). Alone it’s buildable yet a beautiful, shiny, shimmery sheen with even light application.
If you’re looking for opacity this is not your girl. If you’re looking for a versatile, ethereal, shimmery look? Look no further.
Huda Beauty Obsessions Precious Stone Collection: Ruby
This one was kind of neat-it wasn’t part of the Huda display at Sephora. They had Topaz, Emerald and Amethyst out-Sapphire and Ruby were in the back and were sort of a secret, I guess? The saleswoman said they had them in the back but weren’t supposed to (whatever that means) so she brought out Ruby and Sapphire. They were both STUNNING, but Ruby spoke to me louder. I didn’t have anything like Sapphire in my collection so I was torn-but it worked out since Colourpop came out with a collab with Bretman Rock that’s a blue palette. And pretty. And coming to my house. 😜
Huda has really nice shadows-if you’ve never tried them, they’re high quality for the most part and this little guy is no exception. They’re soft and buttery, pigment is great, and they’re easy to work with.
None of the shades have names-nothing I could find anyway. So I’m starting with the top row.
The last shade in the middle row is a black-ish shade with gold shimmer in it-it almost looks dark green but it’s not. The first shade in the bottom row is a satin formula-it’s very different from the mattes and shimmers.
