NABLA Cosmetics Soft Revenge Skin Bronzing Powder Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Soft Revenge NABLA Cosmetics Soft Revenge Skin Bronzing Bronzer Powder ($26.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with subtle, warm rosy undertones and a satin sheen. It had good color coverage in a single layer, which could be built up to full coverage with less than half of a layer more; it would still be “too pigmented” to be described as a buildable coverage product, though (which was how it was described). The bronzing powder had a smooth, firmer…

NABLA Cosmetics Dune Skin Bronzing Powder Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Dune NABLA Cosmetics Dune Skin Bronzing Bronzer Powder ($26.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium, golden brown with strong, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was far more coverage than described, though I’m sure most will not find it to be a deal-breaker. For those who find more buildable coverage essential, if you use a lighter hand, it should be no trouble to do so as there wasn’t any powderiness, which…

NABLA Cosmetics Shine Theory Lip Glosses Reviews & Swatches (Part 2 of 2) – Beauty Article

RSVP NABLA Cosmetics RSVP Shine Theory Lip Gloss ($15.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium-dark, plummy red with warm undertones and lots of copper and gold pearl throughout. It had medium coverage (and wasn’t described as sheer) that covered my lips without streaking but had some product that sank into my deeper lip lines enough to be noticeable in person. The gloss had a smooth, non-sticky, more gel-like texture that was comfortable to wear and spread well over my lips.…

NABLA Cosmetics Ambra Skin Bronzing Powder Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Ambra NABLA Cosmetics Ambra Skin Bronzing Bronzer Powder ($26.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a light, golden brown with warm undertones and a satiny sheen. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, though it was marketed as buildable; it was more buildable in the sense that if I used a lighter hand or a less-dense brush to apply, I could get sheerer, more buildable coverage–the issue is that’s true with most pigmented products! The consistency was smooth and firmer to…

NABLA Cosmetics Independence Skin Glazing Highlighter Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Independence NABLA Cosmetics Independence Skin Glazing Highlighter Powder ($26.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a darker, muted coral with moderate, warm undertones and a luminous finish. It had rich color coverage in a single layer, though the smoother, firmer consistency made it easier to work with a lighter hand as there was no powderiness–much easier to control the pickup with this type of a formula. The powder was soft and smooth to the touch but firm, moderately dense with enough give…

NABLA Cosmetics Shine Theory Lip Glosses Reviews & Swatches (Part 1 of 2) – Beauty Article

Champagne Supernova NABLA Cosmetics Champagne Supernova Shine Theory Lip Gloss ($15.00 for 0.1 oz.) has a transparent base with flecks of copper, gold, and peach micro-sparkle with a high-shine, glossy finish. The consistency was more gel-like, so it felt plusher and thicker (but lightweight and non-sticky), though it wasn’t thick enough prevent some of the texture from the sparkles to come through when I pressed my lips together. It wasn’t painful but for those who may be more sensitive to…

NABLA Cosmetics Profile Skin Bronzing Powder Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Profile NABLA Cosmetics Profile Skin Bronzing Bronzer Powder ($26.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with subtle, warm red undertones and a satin sheen. The finish became more luminous as it was buffed and blended out on my skin, especially when worn at higher coverage. The texture was smooth to the touch, dense and firmer without being stiff to work with, but it worked best with a moderately dense brush to pick up product evenly. It had nearly opaque…

NABLA Cosmetics Lola Skin Glazing Highlighter Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Lola NABLA Cosmetics Lola Skin Glazing Highlighter Powder ($26.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark pink-coral with soft, warm undertones and pink and gold pearl over a luminous finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was easy to diffuse and blend out for sheerer coverage, or it could be applied with a lighter hand for more buildable coverage if preferred. The consistency was smooth to the touch, dense and more firmly-pressed into the pan, which…

NABLA Cosmetics Metropolitan Cutie Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Metropolitan NABLA Cosmetics Metropolitan Cutie Palette ($24.00 for 0.26 oz.) is a warm-toned color story that featured two matte shades, one top coat, and three more shimmery shades. The shade I had the most difficulty with was Anomalia, which was sheerer and had issues with fallout (both during application as well as during wear). The other shades performed more in line with expectations and had the pigmentation they were supposed to have, were blendable, and long-wearing. As a heads up,…

NABLA Cosmetics Platinum Cutie Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Platinum NABLA Cosmetics Platinum Cutie Palette ($24.00 for 0.27 oz.) is a new six-pan palette that featured two shimmery shades, two glittery shades, and two matte shades. All six shades were pigmented, blendable, and longer-wearing, though the glitter shades had slight to light fallout over time, so they would be better used with an adhesive base/spray to help them adhere more reliably. The two shimmers were exceptionally lovely to work with and seemed to “melt” when applied for a very…

NABLA Cosmetics Wild Berry Cutie Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Wild Berry NABLA Cosmetics Wild Berry Cutie Palette ($24.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a new, six-pan palette that included three mattes, one semi-matte, and two intense metallics. All of the shades had good pigmentation that ranged from semi-opaque to full coverage in a single layer. Despite being deeper matte shades, they blended out fairly well over bare skin and lasted for eight to nine hours. Alchemy 2.0 gave me a bit of fallout, but Bucolic Baby was very smooth and…

NABLA Cosmetics Coral Cutie Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Coral NABLA Cosmetics Coral Cutie Palette ($24.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a new, permanent six-pan palette that featured two matte shades, three metallic shades, and one more satin shade. All six shades were pigmented, long-wearing, and were easy to work with. The shimmer shades had a creamier, more emollient texture but weren’t too slippery applied and still worked well with brushes. The brand could be clearer about which shades were Pressed Pigments (and why) because they were marked as “Face”…

NABLA Cosmetics Nude Cutie Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Nude NABLA Cosmetics Nude Cutie Palette ($24.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a new, permanent six-pan palette with three shimmery shades and three “Latex Matte” shades. The Latex Matte finish is quite interesting and complex while actually… working well. It has more of a cream-powder base that looks almost vinyl-like–not quite matte and a bit like the subtle sheen a cream product might produce paired with flaky sparkle. Because of the creamier texture, those flaky sparkles actually bind with the underlying…

NABLA Cosmetics Dreamy II Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Dreamy II NABLA Cosmetics Dreamy II Eyeshadow Palette ($35.00 for 0.39 oz.) includes 12 eyeshadows across an assortment of finishes–this brand might have the most finishes I’ve ever seen!–with two glitters, two sparkling mattes, three mattes, and five shimmers. Most shades were pigmented and longer-wearing, but some had light fallout during application and/or while worn. Note: REM and Libertine both contain plastic glitter, and, in the US, it typically would come with a warning (though there are US brands who…

NABLA Cosmetics Glimmer Light Cheek Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Glimmer Light NABLA Cosmetics Glimmer Light Cheek Palette ($26.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a new, glittering trio of blushes. This is a palette for sparkle and glitter lovers, though they buff nicely into the skin and leave a very shiny, luminous finish that’s sparkling but doesn’t look like “dirt” at any angle (that I could detect, at least). I think that they appear more sparkly initially, but the sparkles are fine and flat enough that they sit well on skin.…

Best of NABLA Cosmetics Skin Glazing Highlighters – Beauty Article

Here’s a roundup of all of the NABLA Cosmetics Skin Glazing Highlighter ($26.00 for 0.23 oz.) reviews! It’s a fantastic gel-powder kind of powder highlighter that seemed to be a little softer than the average formula.

NABLA Cosmetics Truth Skin Glazing Highlighter Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Truth NABLA Cosmetics Truth Skin Glazing Highlighter Powder ($26.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium pink with moderate, warm undertones and a golden, metallic sheen. The highlighter was richly pigmented, but the firmer texture made it easy to use a lighter hand to pick up less product if desired. That firmness didn’t translate into stiffness, though, so there was no powderiness to deal with while the product still applied evenly and blended out with little effort. It had a noticeable…

NABLA Cosmetics Privilege Skin Glazing Highlighter Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Privilege NABLA Cosmetics Privilege Skin Glazing Highlighter Powder ($26.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a soft peach with a hint of pink but was a warmer-toned shade paired with a luminous finish. It had buildable pigmentation from semi-opaque to opaque, while the texture was soft, smooth, and blendable on my skin. The actual pan of product was more firmly-pressed into the pan, so it had a more solid feel to it, which worked better with moderately-dense brushes as opposed to something…

NABLA Cosmetics Lucent Jungle Skin Glazing Highlighter Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Lucent Jungle NABLA Cosmetics Lucent Jungle Skin Glazing Highlighter Powder ($26.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium, reddish-copper base with warmer, golden copper shimmer throughout. It had rich color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out with ease. I found that the reddish undertone was more prominent applied to cheeks (because of the way light hits and the curvature of the face vs. my forearm), so that might be something to keep in…

NABLA Cosmetics Ozone Skin Glazing Highlighter Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Ozone NABLA Cosmetics Ozone Skin Glazing Highlighter Powder ($26.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a pale champagne beige with moderate, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It was one of the lightest shades in the six-piece line-up. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer more. The texture was smooth to the touch, firmly-pressed into the pan but not stiff, so a moderate brush worked best to…

It was buildable in its intensity–up to metallic–if layered or applied with a dampened brush. It had opaque pigmentation that could easily be applied with a lighter hand or diffused for sheerer coverage if preferred. The texture was smooth to the touch, more firmly-pressed in the pan but not stiff or difficult to…

Adults Only NABLA Cosmetics Adults Only Skin Glazing Highlighter Powder ($26.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a deep, coppery red with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, moderately dense texture that felt firm to the touch but was not stiff or difficult to work with on my skin, as the product blended out easily along the edges. I’d recommend using a moderately denser brush and gentle pushing motions to pick up this product based…

NABLA Cosmetics Now at Ulta! – Beauty Article

In my morning perusal of Ulta (while sipping my morning latte, duh), I noticed that NABLA Cosmetics is now carried at Ulta!  It’s a very limited selection of products but includes their two more recently-released eyeshadow palettes for ($39.00, which is a nice conversion for US customers, as Beauty Bay sells the same palettes for $50.00). I hope we’ll see more products from NABLA carried at Ulta in the future, like the Soul Blooming and Dreamy Palettes. I think it…

NABLA Cosmetics Secret Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Secret NABLA Cosmetics Secret Eyeshadow Palette ($45.00 for 0.39 oz.) is the brand’s newest palette, which debuted a few weeks ago. The first row are rosier neutrals, while the third row contains warmer yellow/gold-based neutrals (plus black). The second row has some of the richer pops of colors. I liked how the palette came together, and I felt like there was a nice range in depth, finish, and colors to get an assortment of looks out of it. The matte…
