Ace Beaute Eyeshadow Palettes | Swatches – Beauty Article

Ace Beaute Eyeshadow Palettes | Swatches Ace Beaute is a newer brand that came onto my radar after seeing some regular readers mention their palettes as favorites as well as seeing others in the community review and use them. During one of their sales (probably Black Friday), I picked up five of their palettes–four of the 12-pan palettes ($34.99 each) and one 15-pan palette ($38.99)–which you can find swatched below. Ace Beaute Paradise Fallen Eyeshadow Palette Ace Beaute Blossom Passion…

Dominique Cosmetics Rustic Glam Eyeshadow Palette Swatches – Beauty Article

Dominique Cosmetics Rustic Glam Eyeshadow Palette ($44.00 for 0.60 oz.) is a new, limited palette that features 12 shades across a mix of mattes and shimmers. One note: The brand named one of their eyeshadows g*psy, which is a racial slur against the Romani people. I’m aware that some people are still learning about the history and context behind this word, why it is a racial slur, and removing it from their vocabulary, so I sincerely hope the brand wasn’t…

Jaclyn Hill Cosmetics So Rich Lipsticks – Beauty Article

Jaclyn Hill Cosmetics So Rich Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.13 oz.) debuted a week ago, and my order just arrived yesterday! Several shades are sold out presently, but they will be restocked (and some are still available).  There are 20 shades available, and they all have a satin-cream finish. There have been some customer concerns (but it is hard as a bystander to see how prevalent they are), and frankly, I don’t think I’ve ever studied a lipstick quite so much. …

Huda Beauty Neon Obsessions Palettes | Swatches Huda Beauty Neon Obsessions Palettes ($29.00 for 0.45 oz.) just launched last week, and they’re centered around the brand’s previous Obsessions format but with a neon take.

Natasha Denona Sunrise Eyeshadow Palette Swatches – Beauty Article

Natasha Denona Sunrise Eyeshadow Palette Swatches ($65.00 for 0.67 oz.) is a new, permanent palette designed to complement the Sunset palette.  It’s smaller than the original 15-pan palettes (like Sunset), which contain 1.20 oz. and retail for $129.00 (or $107.50/oz.).  I’m thrilled to see this smaller size, which is more like the size of the average eyeshadow palette.   Sunrise is actually most cost effective, even on a per-ounce basis, as it is $97.01/oz.  Each shade in Sunrise is 0.044 oz., and…
