Juvia’s Place Nubian 2 Palette: Review, Swatches & Eye Looks

I’m sure everyone’s heard of this palette and this brand. They have taken social media by storm so say the least, charming everyone with brilliant shades, highly pigmented eyeshadows and for a fairly inexpensive price tag.

I currently own 2 of their palettes, obviously this one and the very popular Masquerade palette, filled with all sorts of bright colors, matte and metallic.

Today we are talking about the Nubian 2 Palette which is mostly a neutral palette with a few jewel toned metallics and deep plums. I love the color selection in this palette. I think this palette is very well-rounded and well made. It has 4 mattes and 8 shimmery metallics, I personally could use maybe 2 more mattes, just because a couple of the metallic shades are similar.

I’m excited with all the blushes I’m going to try from this sale, blushes have become a new thing for me. I’ve never been too big on blushes before, but they are an interesting finishing touch to any makeup look, or an instant picker-upper for my bare faced days.

Anyway, without further ado here are my recommendations for this year’s 21 Days of Beauty. Continue reading

Boxycharm – January 2017 | Recap Sept. – Dec. 2016

I have been subscribed to Boxycharm since September 2016. For the most part I have been pleased with the products I have received, and even more so, with the value I’m getting for what I am paying for.

If you don’t already know what Boxycham is, it’s a beauty subscription service that charges you $21 per month and they send you 4-5 full size beauty products, usually makeup items but they also send you makeup tools, nailcare, skincare, haircare and bodycare items in the mix. The total value of the box is always more than $100 which is amazing, if you ask me.
