Urban Decay Shapeshifter Contour Review– This palette has everything that you need if you contour and highlight your face everyday. It also has a pink-peach based concealer for color correcting darkness.
– The shade range of this is excellent and there is a darker set for darker skin tones. There is a cooler-toned contour powder and a warmer contour powder as well to suit different undertones.
– The highlight shade is good for everyday use and it is not too much, but is still very pigmented and wears well.
– The packaging of this is 10/10. It is sturdy and could travel easily.
– Pigmentation. This is not really a “bad” thing most of the time. The cream shades in this very pigmented and if you go into this like all of the contour videos and tutorials that you see everywhere, you’re going to have a hard time blending this out. Less is totally more with this one.
– The concealer shades are on the drier side and might not work for every skin type especially for under-eye areas.
– I have not found myself using this a ton since I got it even though the product itself is good. You get a ton of product but unless you’re cream and powder contouring and highlighting all the time, you might not get a ton of use out of this.

Urban Decay Shapeshifter Contour Review
The first contour shade is pretty dark and works more like a bronzer on lighter skin. It is on the warmer side and is highly pigmented so it takes a while to blend out if you use too much product.Urban Decay Shapeshifter Contour Review

Eyeshadow Palette Regrets

Eyeshadow Palette Regrets Urban Decay Too Faced

Urban Decay Vice 4, Too Faced White Chocolate Chip, Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly, Urban Decay Naked Smoked

I am an eyeshadow palette hoarder. There is something about getting someone when it first comes out that makes me giddy. I will admit to setting alarms, and checking my phone like a crazy person to get something before everyone else or before the dreaded sell-out of a limited edition palette. With my go-getter attitude, it is no surprise that I have some eyeshadow palette regrets. The problem with getting something before when it first comes out is that you’re essentially testing the waters for everyone else. Here is a list of my (pricey) regrets.Continue Reading

Rimmel Magnif’eyes and Covergirl Tru Naked Nudes VS. Urban Decay Naked 1

Urban Decay Dupes Rimmel Magfif'eyes covergirl trunaked nudes

Shade range comparison between all three palettes

The Urban Decay Naked 1 palette was my first of many makeup splurges. I remember wanting it forever, and it seemed so much more than any of my makeup buys that I have ever made. It was the first thing that launched from a high-end makeup brand that I had to have. After that, there was no going back for me, I was a makeup hoarder from that day forward. I was browsing Target and I couldn’t help but notice that so many brands are coming out with more affordable versions of what I think a lot of people would consider one of the most iconic eye shadow palettes. The two that I found that were the closest ‘dupes’ were Rimmel Magnif’eyes (the color is Keep Calm and Wear Gold) and Covergirl Trunaked Nudes. This is going to be a review and a product comparison between all three. This will include swatches.
