Cover FX Glitter drops in mirage review and swatches

Cover FX Glitter Drops in Mirage – Review and Swatches


The Story

So I was at my local Sephora, browsing around, when I came across the Cover FX Glitter Drops. I swatched all three shades on my hands, was absolutelyΒ mesmerizedΒ by the glitter, and stared at it for a long time before coming to my senses. Then I mixed the swatches together, died, and went to heaven.

I came back to earth quickly when I noticed the price of these glitter drops – $44 each. 😳😳😳

Anyway, I didn’t get them. I came out of the store, still staring at my shimmering, glimmering hand. I showed it to my husband who told me he’d get the product for me if I wanted it. And I wanted it. So he got it for me, bless his sweet, caring heart. ❀️

Says Sephora:

What it is:
A multidimensional glitter highlighter that imparts a high impact, light-reflective finish.

What it does:
Ultra-concentrated and customizable, these liquid glitters can be used alone, under or over makeup, or mixed into your favorite beauty product for an incredibly luxe glitter effect on the cheeks, eyes, lips, and body.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens

charlotte tilbury hollywood flawless filter review and swatches shade 4

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter – Review and Swatches (Shade 4)

I must admit, I had never purchased a Charlotte Tilbury product before this buy. I just thought they were a little too overpriced, and nothing really ever appealed to me. And then, along came theΒ Hollywood Flawless Filter – described by Charlotte Tilbury as “A Complexion Booster For Super Starlit Skin”, this product is, essentially, an illuminating soft-focus primer or glow booster, which doubles as a highlighter.

Says Charlotte Tilbury:

Darlings, this is a new REVOLUTIONARY category in makeup, a customisable complexion booster for super starlit skin in seconds! My Hollywood Flawless Filter in Shade 4 has the versatility of a primer, the mega-watt glow of a highlighter, and the perfecting properties of your favourite digital filter. Featuring fabulous ingredients, it soft-focuses, illuminates skin and makes lines and pores appear smoother.

The Hollywood Flawless Filter in Shade 4 is a neutral golden yellow for medium skin tones. Wear on its own or is suitable with Magic Foundation 6 Medium or Light Wonder 6 Medium.


β€’ The ultimate high gloss, high glow celebrity-skin-filter-in-a-bottle! This was born on the red carpet makeup, inspired by technology, for real life, in real time that looks amazing on-screen or off.

β€’ Smoothing airbrush polymers roll over your complexion for a poreless-looking, creamy finish.

β€’ Glossy Oil is a lightweight moisturising oil that reflects and adds light to your face where you need it.

β€’ Finely milled powders soft focus, makes lines and pores appear smoother which means it only ever looks as amazing in real life, as it does on camera.

β€’ Porcelain Flower Extract is a brightening ingredient derived from a Thai flower with natural antioxidants and anti-inflammatories to enhance microcirculation and brighten skin.

β€’ Ideal for superstar-lit skin whether you want a subtle glow or a mega-watt complexion.


Fill: 30ml for $44

huda beauty obsessions eyeshadow palettes review and swatches

Huda Beauty Obsessions Eyeshadow Palettes – Review, Swatches, and Makeup Looks (Warm Brown Obsessions and Smokey Obsessions)

The Huda Beauty Obsessions Eyeshadow Palettes are four teeny-tiny eyeshadow palettes which contain full sized pans of eye shadows in various ranges. I recall hearing Huda say in one of her snaps that these are basically full-sized eyeshadows housed in small, compact palettes. She basically said something to that effect.

Sephora says:

What it is:
A range of compact eyeshadow palettes, expertly curated by Huda herself, offering beauty lovers a complete day-to-night eye color wardrobe.

What it does:
Each Huda Beauty Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette is packed with a selection of nine highly pigmented mattes and striking shimmers, all with a smooth and blendable texture. Available in four color themesβ€”Warm Brown, Mauve, Smokey, and Electric Obsessionsβ€”the palettes are super compact and lightweight, making them a must-have for your handbag. The large mirror, conveniently-sized palette, and versatile shade collection allow you to create both classic and playful looks that are easy to apply on-the-go.

– Huda Beauty Warm Brown Obsessionsβ€”Instantly bring light and warmth to your look with Huda’s go-to palette. Packed with eight mattes and one shimmer in heated tones of browns, reds, oranges, and copper, the color range flatters any skin tone and eye color.

– Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessionsβ€”Six pigmented mattes and three gorgeous shimmers in dusty rose and plummy hues create a soft, natural finish for a smoky, sultry effect.

– Huda Beauty Smokey Obsessionsβ€”Master the ultimate smoky eye or staple nude look with this range of four mattes and five metallic shimmersβ€”including an intense black, warm shades of dark brown, champagne, gold, and silver.

– Huda Beauty Electric Obsessionsβ€”The electric palette offers six bold mattes and three shimmers in bright blues, electric yellows, and neon pinks. Creating dramatic, show-stopping looks is now effortlessly achievable with just one palette.

This set contains:
– 9 x Eyeshadows

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens

What else you need to know:
“These are really condensed eyeshadow palettes but you get so much product. I am obsessed with the Warm Brown and Smokey Palettes. They’re both full of the most gorgeous, buildable colors that take your look from day to night easily. The Mauve Obsessions Palette is the makeup essential that everyone needs to create everyday looks with a sultry edge. The Electric palette features super bold colors that are still really wearable so you can create amazing, understated looks. I really wanted to give people the option to have fun with as many colors as possible without having to invest in individual shades. It was all about giving color junkies everything they need, in a compact way.”β€”Huda Kattan, Brand Founder

SIZE 9 x 0.05 oz/ 1.3 g for $27 each

There are 4 versions:

  • Warm Brown Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette
  • Smokey Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette
  • Electric Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette
  • Mauve Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette

I have the former two and will be reviewing them jointly.

Recently I got the Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism Palette, and I’ve been having a great time trying out new looks with it. It is such a great, pigmented palette.

This was my first attempt doing a spotlight smokey eye using the palette, and I think it is a fun, sparkly look for New Year’s Eve!

I was inspired by @nikkietutorials , and I’m happy with how the spotlight eye turned out, but I still need more work, I think.

Do you have any New Year’s Resolutions? What are your plans for the day? I’ll be going out for dinner with my husband to one of my favorite restaurants in this area.

Wishing you and yours a wonderful and prosperous New Year!

Recently I did an eye makeup look on my cousin, using the NYX Cosmetics Matte Liquid Liner (see my post about the look here), and NYX Cosmetics featured my Instagram post on their online gallery!

That eyeliner is black as sin, and it is my favorite for creating a sharp wing on my eyes and on others’ eyes, too! Check it out here, along with my post.

The Abyss – a black smokey eye makeup look

This look was inspired by An Kook on YouTube, and Desi Perkins.

It was my first time doing a black smokey eye, and I was really happy with how it turned out, especially as a first-time thing. I think it looked better in real life than it did on camera.
