Hiii! Today I am reviewing NYX's Highlight and Contour Pro palette. As soon as I saw this palette on Instagram, I HAD to have it asap! I was about to finally give in and buy the Anastasia Beverly Hills contour kit which is $40, but then I saw this NYX palette for $25 and decided to try it first . This palette had 8 shades which made it an even better deal than the Anastasia one. I have never used a NYX bronzer/contour shade, but I have used their illuminators which I LOVE. My favorite one is Ritualistic, it is a gorgeous light golden highlight. So I had really high hopes for this highlight and contour palette, but unfortunately I was disappointed. These were really powdery and made a mess every time I put my brush in them. That I could live with, but they also do not blend well. I used multiple different brushes to see if maybe my brush was the problem, but I was still left with darker, muddy looking patches on my face. It seriously sucks because there are some great colors in this palette. I do however, like the highlight powders. Even though they are a bit powdery, I will keep using them. I especially like the banana powder to set my under eye concealer. Overall, I sadly would not recommend the NYX highlight and contour pro palette. Even though $25 is much better than $40, $25 is still quite a bit and I would expect better quality. I definitely think in this case, it is worth spending the extra money to get the Anastasia contour kit.

Hi everyone! Today I decided to to review Tartes new Tartelette Amazonian clay matte eye shadow palette. I bought this a couple weeks ago and I love it so much, I've used it everyday since. This is the first Tarte eyeshadow palette I've purchased, and I seriously have been missing out. The quality of the eyeshadows is just unreal. They are super smooth and every single one is crazy pigmented. I also noticed these eyeshadows last a long time, with or without primer. Normally my eye shadow starts to look worn after 6+ hours, with these I've notice even 10-12 hours later my eye shadow still looked perfect. This palette is great for an everyday neutral look, or even a super dark sultry look. Ive been able to do so much with this palette and I plan to share some looks soon. So I'm going to show you all the gorgeous colors and some swatches and if you like what you see, I seriously recommend going out and getting this palette asap!
