Fenty Beauty Cool Neutrals (2) Snap Shadows Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches Cool Neutrals (2) Fenty Beauty Cool Neutrals (2) Snap Shadows Mix & Match Eyeshadow Palette ($25.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a new, permanent palette that features three shimmer shades and three matte shades in a “cooler” color story.

ColourPop Go for Bold Lux Lipstick Kit Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Go for Bold Colour Pop Go for Bold Lux Lipstick Kit ($12.00 for 0.155 oz.) is aptly named as it is a richer, deeper set of burgundy hues. The lip liner was a little drier and less pigmented, so it worked better for getting crisp edges or adding a layer of product for the lipstick to grab onto, but it had some unevenness on its own. The lipstick was fantastic, and it didn’t need a liner underneath it to keep…
