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 themes—Warm Brown, Mauve, Smokey, and Electric Obsessions—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 Obsessions—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 Obsessions—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 Obsessions—Master the ultimate smoky eye or staple nude look with this range of four mattes and five metallic shimmers—including an intense black, warm shades of dark brown, champagne, gold, and silver.

– Huda Beauty Electric Obsessions—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.”—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.

BareMinerals Skinlongevity Vital Power Eye Gel Cream – Review

The Story

I LOVE eye creams and I aim to try as many of them as I can.

I purchased the BareMinerals Skinlongevity Vital Power Eye Gel Cream last year, and then returned it because I wasn’t feeling it, and then bought it again because I read reviews on Sephora stating that it did a good job of brightening up under eye circles.

I want to let you know that I’ll use this as a day-time eye cream and update this review in two weeks time to let you know if it has worked on my hereditary circles.

Meanwhile, let me give you my thoughts on how I feel about it at the moment.

my winter skincare routine the girl loves makeup beauty blog

My Winter Skincare Routine for my very dry skin – it works!

winter skincare favorites the girl loves makeup.PNG

I have incredibly dry skin, and Cleveland winters do nothing to help that. Back in Pakistan, my skin was probably best described as combination skin; it even got a bit oily in the summers.

Here in the USA, however, it is usually drier than the Sahara, and painfully parched in the colder months.

So, to make sure I don’t get any lines, wrinkles, dry patches, cracked lips, pimples, and a myriad of other skin problems in the winter, I have devised this skincare routine to keep my skin looking healthy and hydrated. I have mentioned which products I use mainly at night.

Side note: I guess this goes without saying, but please drink water no matter what skin type you have. It does a ton of sh!t for your skin and body besides quenching your thirst. Thank you. PSA over.

akean rotating brush cleaner and dryer machine review and demonstration

Akean Professional Electric Makeup Brush Cleaner and Dryer Machine – Extensive Review (Video Demo on my Instagram!)

akean rotating brush cleaner and dryer machine review and demonstration

The Story

I got the Akean Professional Makeup Brush Cleaner and Dryer Machine from Amazon for $26.99 after an extensive search for an electric rotating makeup brush cleaner similar to the Stylpro Makeup Brush Cleaner and Dryer.

Why didn’t I just get the Stylpro cleaner instead, you ask? Well, because it generally has mixed reviews on the internet, and for mixed reviews I might as well just get something cheaper. This Akean Professional Makeup Brush Cleaner and Dryer Machine had pretty good reviews on Amazon from a lot of reviewers, hence it was my choice.

I got this electric makeup brush cleaner with my own money, btw.

Says Amazon/Akean:

About the product

  • Deep cleansing brushes on dirty matter(bacteria, cosmetic residue, oil, dead skin cells), prevent skin diseases.
  • Fast and effective Makeup Brush Cleaner Machine, make your favorite comb to keep soft and nice, longer life.
  • 8 different sizes collars,suit for most type makeup brushes.
  • Unique collar stand can effectively place collars and make up brushes,no longer worry about them scattered to anywhere.

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!

What’s in my handbag?

Today’s post is a fun little diversion from the review blog posts I usually do. I’m going to tell you all about what I managed to fit in my tiny little shoulder bag that I used while out and about on vacation recently! Also, if you stick around, you’ll read about my trips to Chicago and Cedar Point, and the tv shows I’m currently obsessing over.
