Charlotte Tilbury Green Lights Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Charlotte Tilbury Green Lights Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches Green Lights Charlotte Tilbury Green Lights Eyeshadow Quad ($53.00 for 0.18 oz.) might have a new name, but it is The Rebel (2020) — the brand actually discloses that in the product’s description (which I didn’t bother to read so fool me once…!).

Huda Beauty Mint Pastel Obsessions Palette Review & Swatches Mint Huda Beauty Mint Pastel Obsessions Palette ($29.00 for 0.21 oz.) seemed to work better as individual shades than together, as the shimmers were creamier but often a little sheerer, while the matte shades were pigmented but moderately powdery. Visually, the palette was hard to envision because the shimmers often applied differently than they appeared, too.The mattes darkened slightly when applied, though not terribly, and they blended out decently along the…

NABLA Cosmetics Nude Cutie Palette Review & Swatches Nude NABLA Cosmetics Nude Cutie Palette ($24.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a new, permanent six-pan palette with three shimmery shades and three “Latex Matte” shades. The Latex Matte finish is quite interesting and complex while actually… working well.
