IMG-1075

Happy Saturday!  I hope your weekend is going well!

I’m excited to do this palette review today! It’s the TARTE Unleashed Eyeshadow Palette & Travel-Size Big Ego Mascara.  I got it as a birthday gift a few weeks ago, and have been enjoying it!

This vegan and cruelty free palette is inspired by the animal kingdom and features earthy & tropical tones. Plus, it comes with a Travel Size Big Ego Mascara!

It is infused with Amazonian clay & mineral pigments for maximum blendability & wear.  It features a mix of mattes & metallics in warm & cool tones.

The ingredients in the shadows include these Skinvigorating Ingredients:

  • Amazonian clay: Nature’s most perfect ingredient for better, longer, truer wear
  • Mineral pigments: Soothe & soften skin
  • Vanilla: A natural fragrance with rich antioxidant & anti-aging properties

Here’s photos of the outer packaging:

The packaging for this is gorgeous! It’s hard to tell, but the front of the palette is 3D when you move it around.  It’s so cool.  And it’s really sturdy packaging.

Swan Song, Oh Deer, Hippocritical, Bear Necessities and Koalafied.  I love most of the shimmers in this palette (there’s one exception below).  The mattes are nice, too, but Koalafied didn’t swatch too well.  It’s nice on the eyes, though.

Toucan Do It, No Fox Given, Iguana Love You, Irrelephant, and Toad-ally.

All of these are as gorgeous on the eyes as they swatch!  So pigmented and gorgeous!

You’re Lion, Monkey Business, Camelflauge, Hawkward, and Party Animal.  The only shade I had trouble swatching was Hawkward. It’s really sheer, almost like a shadow topper.  I tried to builcdd it up on my eyes and it didn’t work, it stayed sheer.  All of the other shimmers can be built up to look very foiled on the eyes.

The mascara is really nice, too.  I forgot to do a close up of the wand.  It’s a fluffy hourglass shaped wand.  It gives lots of volume and length.

I really do love this palette.  The colors are so summery and I love the range of shades.  I need to do some more looks with it, but I am enjoying it so far!

Brand Review — Nanacoco

img_2823.jpg

Hi all!  I hope you are doing well! I have another brand review!  I love doing these because it’s so much fun exploring what a brand has to offer.  This one is new to me.  It’s call Nanacoco.  Here is info on the brand:

Founded in 2014, Nanacoco continues to evolve and update its cruelty-free products to match the ever-changing beauty trends. It was essential to create an iconic color cosmetics brand that would have a lasting cult following in today’s digital world. Nanacoco represents someone who is carefree, loving, and isn’t afraid to push boundaries, while constantly moving towards innovation, trendiness, and diversity.

I love that the brand is cruelty free and is so affordable. It’s available on http://www.bbfull.com.

img_2837 These are the Eyeshadow Quad Palette in Elegant ($11.99), The Classic Auto Eye and Lip Pencil in Black ($2.99) and the Outlash Mascara ($10.50).  My photo isn’t great, but this quad is gorgeous!  The colors are all shimmers, but I did a look with the lower left brown shade in my crease, the pink shade on the outer half of the lid, the gold shade on the inner half of the lid, the dark brown shadow on my lower lash, and I tight lined with the the black liner.  It was gorgeous!

The mascara is nice, too.  They have many different kinds, but this one is for length. And it does give great length, but not a lot of volume.  I need length so this is a nice everyday mascara.

Here’s a swatch of the eyeliner and shadow quad.  The colors are so gorgeous and you can do some fun, neutral looks with it.  There are also a few different palettes with brighter shades. The eyeliner is very creamy, but not super black.  It is good to tight line.

These beauties are the Glitzn Face & Body Pigment ($7.50) in Lilac and Lemon.  These are so pretty on the eyes.  They will also work as highlighter, they do blend out.  They come in 12 shimmery shades.

The photo didn’t turn out very well, but these are gorgeous and you get a lot of pigment in the little jar.  They are so nice on the eyelid.  I used the Lemon one with my eyeshadow quad and it added brightness and shimmer to my look!

For face products, I tried the HD Cover Concealer ($8.50) in Eggshell and the HD Pressed Blush ($8.50) in Shimmery Dusty Rose.

I think the pigments were under these, sorry about that!  The concealer is a bit dark for me now, but will work well in the summer.  It’s creamy and is a lighter coverage, but it’s buildable.

The blush is a pretty rose color and is a bit shimmery.  I think this will be gorgeous in the spring!

And finally, here’s lips.  The are the Lipfinity Long Lasting Matte Lip Creme ($8.50) in Unveiled, Magnu-Matte Lip Crayon ($7.50) in Fever, and the Shimmertallics Metallic Lip Gloss ($8.50) in Sunkissed.

Here are the swatches of the matte cream, crayon and lip gloss. These are all pretty nude shades.  The matte liquid lipstick is moussey when applied, but it dries down so much and is a bit uncomfortable on.  I can wear it with gloss over it.

The matte crayon is really comfortable.  I think this is the item I will use the most.  The gloss is pretty, but is so metallic.  Maybe it will be good for a night out.

All in all, I am very impressed with Nanacoco.  The products are really great quality for the price.  My favorites are the eyeshadow quad, the pigments, the mascara and the blush.  I will keep using them to see how I continue enjoying them.

Have you tried Nanacoco?  What do you think of the brand?
