I eagerly awaited this release, because hype is pretty much the carrying factor for high end brands now ;) I just received it a few days ago, and I must say the shades are a little... Boring? I have over 10 TF eyeshadow palettes and after a while the shades all seem to repeat. I wasn't expecting this issue with a special release featuring a prominent beauty guru, but that's a bit what I'm feeling now that I have it in hands. Now, I didn't watch all the spoiler videos to see what shades would be included because I like a little mystery in my life. Haha! I'm just wondering, would it really have been that hard to create some specially created blush/bronzer/highlighter shades exclusive to this palette?? In my opinion, that would have made the whole thing so much more exciting and hype worthy.
I was so excited to try these blushes when I spotted them in Sephora a few months ago! I purchased two shades and wore them exclusively for a few weeks. They are super pigmented, wear gorgeously for a decent amount of time, and are reasonably priced. My only disappointment is with the overspray shimmer. After a few dips with a brush the gold/silver (depending on which shade you have) disappears fairly quickly. I understand that this was intentional, but I'm not sure I am a big fan. I say either advertise as a pure matte blush, or embed the shimmer throughout the entire blush pan so that it isn't a distant memory after a few uses. I would recommend them, but just know going in what you're getting! :)
As an eyeshadow junkie through and through, I love to try as many formulas/brands as possible. In the scheme of high end makeup, I would say that Beneift is a bit behind when it comes to eyeshadow. Don't get me wrong, Benefit's blush, primer, mascara, brow gel, etc. are all amazing. But they do not have a large eyeshadow palette that they are known for as most other brands do. So I was eager to try their offerings in this department. Now, I could have tried the wrong shade... I stepped out of my comfort zone and went with a blue/green color which is not my thing. They are creamy, but I was expecting a more Creme to powder like Mac paint pots. Not the case. They creased very easily and I do not have oily lids. I just didn't like the formula. I wouldn't use it alone or as a base. Come on benefit, release a real deal eyeshadow palette we can all droll over!
Nars dual intensity shadows are fabulous! Wet or dry, they look amazing! The color range is also impressive. This participle shadow is a personal favorite because it really can stand alone on days I don't have much time for makeup. Swipe, blend and go and it looks stunning! Wear time is better than many high end brands. Very little creasing (although I always, always wear eye primer). This is seriously one of my top 5 eyeshadows that I reach for. It pairs so nicely with blue eyes! :)
YSL is one of my favorite brands, makeup and otherwise. I love their eyeshadow formula. In true YSL fashion, their shades blend effortlessly while having a very luxurious feel to the touch. I especially love their limited edition eyeshadow palettes. The cover designs are truly collectible! This particular couture palette had some lovely shades, but in terms of wearability I find they are not my go to shadows. While these are mostly neutral, my personal favorites, I just don't find myself reaching for it. They are very dupable! :)
It's tide. It works great. Cleans clothes effectively. Is priced reasonably. There's not much more to say. It works as well as any other top selling laundry brand. The smell is neutral which is nice for sensitive noses. Would recommend.
Nice smell. Works well to clean clothes. I can't find much difference between this and other competing brands, but I do favor the scent. It is reasonably priced and contain a lot of product. I would recommend.
Great scent. Effective at cleaning dishes. I like that it contains less chemicals than other soaps we have. I use for my kids bottles, pacifiers and toys. I feel a little more comfortable using this than the alternatives. Would recommend although it does cost about $3 more for far less soap.
Doesn't work as intended. Maybe we got a dud but the idea is to put soap in the top compartment that should come out when pressure is applied. This would be great because it would eliminate the need to add additional soap while cleaning. But we have never been able to get the soap to actually release into what we are washing. It has always stayed in the compartment. Which is frustrating because this cost more than just a regular sponge but works no different.
