I bought this for the mattes (that was before the Petite Heat came out). I LOVE them! This is by far the best Naked palette UD has done. I have had 1, 2, and 3 and didn’t keep any of them.
I don’t love the shimmers in this palette. I like shimmers to be brighter and more foiled. Ember and the brightest orange color are decent, but the others weren’t my thing. Matter of personal preference, I suppose. In my palette the dark plum turned weird and hard after a month or so. I love that tone, so that made me sad. I use the similar color in the toasted. I have friends that have this palette and their palettes haven’t done the same, so it must be an isolated problem.
I bought this on sale on Black Friday, so I am pleased with it. I did get the petite heat with Ulta points and I do wish I had known that was coming out. Both the heat and the petite are far superior in quality as far as mattes go than the other UD mattes that I have tried.
I have this in Rose Gold Retro and a set of three smaller ones. I LOVE these glitter shadows! The RGR is my most recent purchase and my favorite - it actually has a base color like Stila’s liquid eyeshadows and the glitter as well. All of the shades I have stay much better than other glitters I have tried like UD Moondust. I am very pleased with these. I don’t wear them as often as I should. I need to!
Giving 5 stars, but it’s not absolutely perfect. I am rounding up.
I wanted to use this for a while before I gave a review. I love wings and am cursed with constantly watering eyes. This is problematic on the outer corners of the eyes. I have been using this daily on the wing and outer corner of my eyes (I don’t use it all the way out of sheer laziness - I don’t feel like using a brush for the whole eye, so I do the wing and then line the rest with my trusty NYX Liquid Matte liner. Much faster) and feel like I have used it enough to form an opinion.
This opinion will be based vs other waterproof liner I have tried. Anyone with watery eyes can tell you that waterproof and tear proof are completely different. I can put any of the following under a faucet and they would be fine. The ones I have used the most are: Tarte Tarteist liquid liner, Tarte Clay pot liner and Stila Smudge Pot. I will say that all of these worked amazing before I wore eyeshadow. I guess placing the liners over the eyeshadow messes with the staying powder. Now I love eyeshadow, so I am working with that.
The ABH liner is very smooth and easy to apply - comparable in consistency to the Tarte pot. It has not dried up at all. The Stila is super hard to apply and that is what I had been using, so I am glad for that. I can get a crisp line easily. The color is very black and very matte, which I love. Most days it stays on very well. Some days it will slightly come off on the very outer edge and expose a circle of skin. My watery eyed friends will know that it’s near impossible to apply anything else over these spots. The ABH liner does reapply over that better than most. I was at an outing not too long ago and I was laughing a lot. This means that I was extra watery, and a large portion of my wing came off. However, every liner that I have ever tried has done the same, so I can’t knock it too much.
Prior to this, the Tarte Tarteist liner was my go to (if you don’t wear shadow, or at least wear less than me, that stuff is hurricane proof! I believe ABH would be the same). I am liking this liner better.
All in all, I am pleased with the purchase. I really like it and it seems to be working better than any liner that I have tried.
I have the Toasted palette (my favorite palette!) and wanted this as a companion. Since it was on sale at Sephora for $15, I bought one for both myself and my daughter. I have to say, I was less than wowed. The mattes were decent, but they went on a lot more brown toned than they looked in the pan. They are easily blendable, on the plus side. It also looked a lot different on myself than my daughter. They kind of looked muddy on my medium tan skin, but looked very vibrant and pretty on my daughters very pale skin. The shimmers didn’t seem to be as bright and vibrant as most Tarte shimmers, even wet or with glitter glue. They certainly weren’t terrible but I was expecting a little more.
Not everyone is looking for the same thing out of eyeshadows, thus the 4 star review. It’s not a bad palette at all, but I definitely have Tarte shadows that suit my preferences more.
Onto value: this palette is 0.18 oz whereas the full size tartelette palettes have 0.636. So the flirt has roughly 28% of the amount product that is in the full size palettes that retail for $46. 0.18 oz would be about $12.88 worth of product. At the $15 sale price, that’s not terrible. At $23 it’s not a good deal at all. If you like this color scheme, I would definitely recommend saving up for the full size toasted if that’s within your budget (and watch for those Ulta and Tarte sales!). I know not everyone wants a large palette or cares about the math 😅
My dog has a very sensitive stomach. The amount of food wasted by him randomly puking as soon as he eats is absurd. I kept trying to find a food that would agree with him and Nutro finally worked! We usually get this variety but have fed him a couple of varieties if I can’t find this one. None of them have upset his stomach. I am very happy that we found Nutro!
This is a no frills product, but definitely gets the job done! I vastly prefer a clear gel to colored ones. Not because I have real eyebrows (I don’t) but because I prefer using other products for color and setting the few hairs that I do have with this. I have tried a few other gels and they either didn’t hold or flaked. This gel has been my go to brow gel for years!
I’m not into things for the tiny travel sized novelty - I don’t travel much and depot almost everything so it’s not a concern of mine. I bought this on sale. That’s the only way I would purchase one of Tarte’s smaller palettes like this. Regular price on this is $23. You can get a full sized tartelette for $46 so that’s a better deal. Aside from that, the shadows in this are the wonderful Tarte quality! Blendable and pigmented. Smell great. The shimmer are nice in this. I ended up giving my daughter this palette during an eyeshadow purge and she loves it too. To summarize - fantastic product, but I would wait for a sale!

Well... the MR and I have come full circle. When I first started into makeup, I actually bought this palette and returned it. I couldn’t work with it. In retrospect that was probably me being overwhelmed with the palette (my only palette before that was a quad that I had bought on Black Friday) and just lack of skill in knowing how to apply and put together.
Fast forward to last month. I am a straight up eyeshadow hoarder now. The amount of palettes I have acquired since then is truly ridiculous. I cashed in some Ulta points and bought Soft Glam. Oh my goodness - I love that palette so much! The formula is AMAZING and ABH pigment is fantastic. Aside from my two day stint with MR back in the day, I had stuck with Tarte and UD (Tarte’s still my favorite but it’s almost a tie with ABH now). Upon obsessing over soft glam and reading reviews stating that MR was the same formula, I knew I had to get MR if a deal arose. I am orange obsessed and was planning to buy a 4 pack of singles (love letter, burnt orange and realgar are in MR and were 3 of the singles I was planning on purchasing), which is $32. Macy’s had a 15% off sale and Ebates was also 15% back, so I snatched it up. I LOVE it! The shimmer aren’t my favorites every but that’s just personally preference.
If your trying to decide between Soft Glam and MR, I would have to say that I prefer Soft Glam. Same fantastic formula but I feel like it is more versatile color wise.
I still have yet to successfully use the lavender in either palette without looking like an idiot, but that’s just me. Not the palettes fault.
So, in closing, I have to rescind all the negative things that I had to say about Modern Renaissance in the past. It wasn’t you, it was me!
Review for: Too Faced Hangover 3-in-1 Replenishing Primer & Setting Spray 4 oz/ 120 mL more...
I’m going to preface this review by saying that (due to medication) my skin is very dry. Think lizard skin. Fun times. This causes some difficulty with makeup. Before this medication, I used UD All Nighter and it worked fantastic. Not so much these days.
The Hangover spray leaves my face with a beautiful glow, but doesn’t look oily or unpleasant at all. It also seems to be very helpful with keeping my foundation from cracking. I actually got this as a gift, which I am very thankful for because I don’t think I wouldn’t have tried it otherwise. I steer clear of Too Faced for eyeshadow for quality reasons, but their face stuff keeps impressing me. When I was oily I loved the peachy matte primer and spray and now the hangover primer and spray are my go to. This does have an intense spray so I have to be careful not to hold it too close to my face while applying. My makeup stays on all day and I use it as a refresher when I need it.
Definitely a winner for me. I do genuinely like how my makeup looks after spraying this on.
