Kat Von D Metal Matte Palette ~ swatches



Let me just say Holy Molly you need to get this palette. 
New Kat Von D Metal Matte palette launch for holiday hmm two months ago I believe. 
When I saw it at sephora I swatches few shadows and I was sold. 
I missed out on last year palette so I told myself to get this year one.But then again I heard many mixed reviews so I decided to hold on on ordering and wait till hit sephora store so I can see her in person and decide. It only took 3 shade to swatch to make my decision.

"The MetalMatte Eyeshadow Palette is a mashup of bold colors and must-have textures, celebrating the two sides within everyone—whether it’s soft and romantic, rock ‘n’ roll, or both. The palette’s top row features an explosive lineup of exclusive, never-before-seen metallic shades in Kat Von D’s max-pigment Metal Crush Eyeshadow formula, including Synergy, a bestselling bronze from the original collection. The bottom of the palette is a rainbow array of buttery mattes, in a range of tones—from dark and moody to pastel neutrals—all in Kat’s signature blendable, pigmented eye shadow formula. This palette’s array of tones and textures gives you endless combinations for a number of eye looks. Get inspired by the three fearless tutorials, each with step-by-step instructions."


Now lets talk about the packaging first. It is huge! it is like double the size of naked palettes. 
The logo was hand down by Kat as an ambigram. It reads Metal one way and when you flip it it reads Matte. Love this idea. 
The eye shadows are freaking unbelievable. The metallic ones have a famous Metal Crush formula and OMG they are fabulous. I am so happy that they were included in this palette. The matte shades are also wow  fantastic. They all swatch wonderfully. Although I would use primer with all of them ;) I did used it few times already. Just did a quick basic look ;)the metal crush formula is hands down the best one I tried. 
All shades are really pigmented and overall I love this palette :) Well send $60 for sure.  The only problem I have is the storage for this baby LOL. Right now it sitting on my vanity.
Now lets see the swatches:

Skindinavia Oil Control Makeup Primer Spray and Makeup Finishing Spray ~ review



Did you ever try a products and from the first use you knew you won't be able live without? 
That's how I feel about skindinavia Makeup Sprays. 
Within days both became a must haves in my makeup routine. 
We all know and heard of makeup finishing sprays but primer spay, well that is something new. I usually use regular primers like the ones in the tube. Primer spray was totally new experience for me. 

First off I been seeing skindinavia all over YT and IG. Every blogger raves about it . So You probably think if the hype is real? Well in my opinion it is :) 

I have few finishing sprays in my makeup stash but none come close to skindinavia. Don't get me wrong I still will reach for others but skindinavia is my number 1. 

I have oily skin and these two sprays with oil control are a life savers.Love how lightweight they are. They don't feel sticky when dry.  Both gives me a matte finish. 

The oil control primer spray i use after my morning routine. After I apply my daily moisturizer I spray my face with primer spray. After it dries I go over with my foundation and rest of the makeup. You can or not use a primer after. All depends on you. I did tried that once but I like the spray primer on its own. Oil control primer keeps my foundation in place and most importantly it applies it flawlessly. 
After I am done with my makeup I reach for oil control finishing spray to set everything in. 
I tell you I see a huge difference! But only when I use both. they do work like magic. One time I used only primer spray and forgot to use the finishing spray (running late does that to you). and wow I didn't not like the makeup on my face. It was just mehhh,... But with the finishing spray brings it all together. Looks more flawless, even and beautiful. Well i do feel more beautiful when using it. 

Another plus is that it helped me with Milani Foundation. I bought Milani foundation  not long time ago and I swear I wanted to return it. I just couldn't make it work. I tried with other primes and it was just no no. Then I said to myself let me try with these babies. And you know what ?! it actually worked. 
The foundation went on smoothly and evenly. Since both have oil control, oil on my face didn't show up until 4 - 5pm. and that's awesome! When I use them wit matte foundations and powders I stayed matte throughout the day. 

PROS:

* There is no fragrance to it. I personally don't mind if there is or not a fragrance. 
* The nozzle sprays fine mist tat covers your face amazingly and you don't have to worry you spray too much. 
* My foundation stays in place the whole day. I used to see it separate from my t zone and around my nose. Nothing with that. I am super pleased with that. 
* It controls excess oil
* Its oil, paraben and silicone free. 

CONS:

* for some price
