Morphe 35 O3 Look

Primer: Tatcha Liquid Silk Canvas primer and Marc Jacobs Under(Cover) Perfecting Coconut primer
Face: Covergirl Full Spectrum Matte Ambition All Day Foundation. I think I have the lightest shade in this collection, definitely made for more melanin rich peeps.
Measurable Difference Concealer Collection. We received this in a Boxycharm box three years ago and I’ve kept this since then, still plastic wrapped. I love how well this product performs! I used it for contouring, bronzing and concealer
Laura Mercier Loose Translucent Powder for under the eyes and NYX Can’t Stop Won’t Stop powder for all over
ABH Contour Kit powder
Smashbox Bronze Lights Warm Matte
Colourpop Interstellar pressed blush
Marc Jacob’s Gilty O!Mega Glaze All-Over Foil Luminizer NYX glitter primer for the lid area where I applied the shimmer shade
Shadows: Tempting/ Flame Game/ Red Alert/ Power Play/ Trance
@nyxcosmetics Fill and Fluff in Espresso
Tarte Big Ego Mascara
Kylie Cosmetics Madeline

The NYX glitter primer made a big difference in how the shimmer shade applied and how long it stayed on!

Natasha Denona Metropolis Look

Yesterday I was watching Alicia Archer (kinkysweat on YouTube) do two looks comparing the Natasha Denona Bronze and Metropolis palettes and she inspired me to use the Metropolis palette.


I love the way Symbol, Shield and Imperia blended into each other.
I used Rhizome in the crease to blend the colors up

Natasha Denona Sunrise Palette

I took advantage of a Beautylish coupon to snag this palette after I was able to swatch it in store.

I really like the smaller packaging, the smaller pan size and the more affordable price point.

I found that there was little to no fallout, even with the redder colors, and the shimmers applied great with a wet brush and finger. For the most part I avoid applying shimmers with a dry brush, regardless of the brand, to avoid fallout and get more pigmentation.

Overall I really enjoy this palette, the colors included and that it’s more affordable so I can feel comfortable recommending it to friends.

I hope they come out with more of these smaller palettes.
