Niltiac E.'s Beauty Product Reviews
I gave this to my sister who has naturally clear skin but she has mild freckles on her face. In only a few weeks her skin looks really clear and luminous and her freckles have actually faded very noticibley!!!! I was actually so blown away, I had not expected this to do anything let alone fade dark spot and freckles but it's amazing. I am going to have to buy one for myself and hopefully it will make my skin so luminous and glowing and even toned.
This was okay for me. I love the color of it and I like wearing it on my lips but I hate wearing it on my cheeks. I don't know whether to put it on before my mineral makeup and highlighter or after and it is not very even application. You can't blend it very much. I hate liquid blushes or cheek stains so I might have a biased opinion.
I tried useing milk as a eyeshadow primer and base and for 6$ this did a pretty good job. It definatly primes better than going without it. When I use it over a base and do bright blues or purples eye looks it really makes the color pop and look truer to the palette. Next time I see it onsale I am definatly stocking up.
I got a deluxe sized sample from Sephora for being a Very imprtant beauty insider. I received it in Copacabano and it is freakin amazing! I love the color idk if it's just me but I find it almost has a bit of a lilac undertone. A little goes a longg way! I love that it is so pigmented and consistant. I always sue it to highlight my cheek bones. I also have the orgasm illuminator and I can't say I like it. Maybe it's my skin tone but I dont like it or ever use it.
I got super lucky when I was at Sephora last week because they were out of the naked palette but this freakin amazing wonderfully nice lady who works at Sephora had got a UD 15TH Anneversary pallette which she hadn’t opened that was on hold for her but she let me buy it :))) I love her!! I paid like 70 dollars for it (canadian) and I’m really happy I got this palette :) The possibilities are endless with this palette.
I did not take any of these pictures I just got them off google images. The person who made the swatches used no primer. I use Urban Decay Primer when I do my looks with this palette.
Midnight Rodeo: is a coppery/taupe with tiny glitter particles. It’s a gorgeous color, one of the most pigmented and so soft and buttery :3 I’d say it’s a really a unique color but I’m no makeup pro it’s just my opinion.
Midnight 15: a pale pearle mb with taupe undertones and finly milled shimmer. I love this color it’s so pigmented and applies beautifully. I love it as a lid color/ highlight with blackout in the outer v and a bit in the crease.. it makes my eyes look waay bigger.
Vanilla: is a pale yellow vanilla color with a hint of gold. It’s less shimmery than Midnight 15, and less pigmented. I don’t like this color a lot I don’t think I will hit pan.
Flow: is a light peachy shimmer. I like this color but I already have some colors like it. Like in the Too Faced Narural palette, and I like the too faced one better because it’s more buttery and pigmented so you only have to do one swipe whereas the UD takes a few.
Chase: is a medium warm shimmery gold/taupe. It’s less shimmery (thank good, I wish UD had held up on the shimmer and glitter..) and applies really well. Like most of the colors in this row it is very blendable.
Tainted: is a pale pinky/lavender with a slight gold shimmer… it looks pink in the box. It a great color I looove purples especially light ones. I just wish that it was less chalky and applied evenly, and was buildable. I find it had to make my eyeshadow look look flawless when I use this color. Too bad because in theory this is one of my favorite colors.
Junkshow: is a bright fuchsia pink with purpleish/purple shift. I love this color! I wore it today with Midnight 15 as the lid color and inner corner, and Junkshow in the crease and outer part of eye and blackout in the outer v blended into the lashline and a bit in the outer corner on my lower lashline. It is on the sheer side but It is acceptably blendable and goes on pretty easily.
Omen:is a medium lavender with blue shift. Right away this color caught my eye and I loooveee it! It’s similiar to Urban Decays jumbo 24/7 eyeshadow pencil in Motphine exect Omen has blue undertones and is powder. Morphine is a warmer purple and more pigmented and attention grabbing on the eye. The color Omen is a bit hard to work with though, unlike Morphine. Omen does not blend well and is not very buildable dry which sucks because its fairly sheer. Not as pigmented or soft and buttery like deeper, or midnight 15, mia, midnight rodeo. It’s still a quality eyeshadow im sure I’ll use up.
Evidence: is a dark navy blue with light blue sheen. I like this eyeshadow. Blendable, great color payoff, easy to work with. I think it would be gorgeous with midnight 15 :)
Deep End: is a medium not quite shimmery mermaid-like greenish teal. It is a nice color, great quality, very pigmented, workable. It isn’t the most unique color ever, I’m sure could be easily duped. I don’t dislike this color but it’s not one I will wear a lot, I have lots of other blues that I would grab before this.
Deeper: dark bronze/brown with gold shimmer. Sooooo pigmented!!!! And it applies sooo nicely and evely and it’s very blendable and lush :) Great quality shadow. It’s quite the color too, I think it looks like a bit olive colored. I wish Omen or Tainted had this much quality… or the whole palette! Consistancy would be nice for the money I paid.
M.I.A.: is a dark brown with slight sheen. A lot like deeper in quality and all the amazingness quality, but it is a cooler brown. I personally like the color of MIA better than deeper. I love that it is not shimmer but it has a sheen.
Ace:is a deep steel blue shimmer. Great shadow but it isn’t as blendable or easy to work with as some in this palette. A bit of a disappointment.
Blackout: is a deep black matte. I like this black it is very black! Not blue like some I get >:^| Quite blendable, if you take your time with blending it can look very soft in the outer v, and I like the look. Great for dusting on after applying cream black liner on your lash line or waterline to set it and help the lasting power in the waterline.
Half Truth: is a deep kind of greyed out purple. I like this color. It’s a bit better than half truth. I just wish it was maybe matte or something. I dont think it stands out but a nice addition to my color collection.
Overall: I like this palette. I don’t regret spending so much money on this and I love hiding rolled joints for easy access in my room. After the eyeshadows run out I will for sure have the box on display, I already use the velvet box the house my hello kitty pez collection and keychain looool ^.^ I’m satisfied with the eyeshadows which is why I bought the palette but I’m not blown away or exstatic about them. I wish they had been consistant in quality and pigmentation. If all the shadows had thee quality of midnight 15 or rodeo or depper or mia I would freakin love the palette.. but they didn’t. All in all I’ll use this all up for sure and Im glad I don’t regret spending 70 dollars.
I don't understyan the bad reeviews. I love this primer! I let it soak in and set and it makes my makeup last all day and keeps my face oil free! I love the consistancy and when worn alone it's soo pretty. It does a great job of primeing. I'm not purchasing the full size because it's on the quite expensive side.
