    i actually like it and think it would be worth a try for that price. I haven't been interesting in actually buying anything of hers because of the super high pricepoint and the overwhelming amount of product, so I'm happy to see her going in this direction.

    I’m all for companies making smaller sized products with lower price points. I can’t remember the last time I fully planned an eyeshadow.

    Is that true though? aren't her 5 pan palettes like $48? I wonder why this one would be so low cost.

    Dang. I admit I've been curious if ND eyeshadows were worth the price and that looks like it would be brilliant for traveling. I'd love to see more of these in different color schemes.

    Only 2 mattes? I’m not sure if I’m in the minority here, but I’m so sick of every palette having 10 shimmers and 4 mattes. I want more mattes

    I've wanted to try ND but the price and color ways have stopped me. $24 seems more than fair and I actually like that there is less product, especially because her shadows have a shorter shelf life.

    I get why so many people complain about the “same warm shades” in palettes. But gotta keep in mind that not everyone owns many eyeshadow palettes and may not already have something like this.

    I for one, don’t because I hardly wear eyeshadow because I get eczema if I wear eyeshadow too often. But this is right up my alley for a nighttime look. So I’ll probably buy if it swatches well. Oh and if it doesn’t contain carmine. It reminds me of ABH MR, which I LOVE, but am allergic to. ;(

    This would make a great travel palette, and as long as the formula is the same, well worth the price. I'm glad to see her following PMcG's lead in making a smaller palette at a more accessible price point.

    I have destashed and depotted almost all my palettes to work my way down to one, comprehensive, flattering, and useful palette for my complexion and tastes. I am only left with the PB&J palette and a small Lancôme quint (which I may pass on to my mom). I am L’Oréal W1-2 or maybe a MAC NC15ish, green eyes, strawberry blonde and henna’d hair.

    This is an awesome monolid look! The blending is spot on, your contour is very natural looking. Only CC is that it's a tad hard to see your open-eye look with your bangs... but from what I can see, it looks great.

    I personally think your brow shape looks great on you. The thinner brows suit your face so well. I do think they're leaning slightly warm/red, but it's not super noticeable. I wouldn't go with black brows, but just something in the same shade with a cooler tone.

    Your skin looks awesome as well, but I'd try out a warmer foundation color that doesn't pull so pink compared to your neck/chest. Overall you look fresh and lively. That lip color really plays well with your eyes and I love it.

    Also, unrelated but can I ask you where you got that shirt!? It looks so adorable!

  • cobaltandchrome
    3 points Feb 21,2018, 2:00pm

    I really like the lipstick color and overall your eyes stand out which is good.

    Your brows are too heavy - too much opaque color. You don’t have to draw on individual hairs, you don’t necessarily have to change the shade. Start by using half as much product. Secondly you brows might be a little angry. Too low to the nose at the inner end. Imagine 😡 the angry emoji or a cartoon character. Reduce a lot of the opacity there and raise the height there a mm or a few - just in the inner edge closest to the midline of the face - and your expression will not be falsely angry. The length, arch, height of the eyebrows are all a-ok which is a real accomplishment ;)

    I do agree with the other commenters about your redness but I don’t have any suggestions about whether it’s correctable with makeup or a skincare thing or maybe you were just hot/cold. It might not be as noticeable in other lighting ¯_(ツ)_/¯

    I think it's a great, everyday, natural look :)

    Your brow product color is fine.

    The only cc I have is that it would look better if you dealt with the redness in your skin. It would really change how this all looks.

    Since you like IT Cosmetics - their bye bye redness cream (the one that is makeup, not the moisturizer) is crazy good. Like startlingly effective. Downside is the same as all ITC products - high cost for small amounts of product.

    I have a lot of redness too. I like Hourglass's Mineral Veil primer because it's actually effective at taming down redness. I'm not sure why - I think it's probably the zinc in it. I use it on bare-face days to keep shiny in check and tone down my redness.

    On full makeup days, I use a green color corrector. It takes some practice. A fine line between porcelain skin and flawless alien. Lancome makes a good one (super concentrated!) and I want to try the Cover FX and Smashbox sticks.

    I'm a sucker for products in crayon form :)

    Cheers

    I personally think your brow shape looks great on you. The thinner brows suit your face so well. I do think they're leaning slightly warm/red, but it's not super noticeable. I wouldn't go with black brows, but just something in the same shade with a cooler tone.

    Your skin looks awesome as well, but I'd try out a warmer foundation color that doesn't pull so pink compared to your neck/chest. Overall you look fresh and lively. That lip color really plays well with your eyes and I love it.

    Also, unrelated but can I ask you where you got that shirt!? It looks so adorable!

    I really like the lipstick color and overall your eyes stand out which is good.

    Your brows are too heavy - too much opaque color. You don’t have to draw on individual hairs, you don’t necessarily have to change the shade. Start by using half as much product. Secondly you brows might be a little angry. Too low to the nose at the inner end. Imagine 😡 the angry emoji or a cartoon character. Reduce a lot of the opacity there and raise the height there a mm or a few - just in the inner edge closest to the midline of the face - and your expression will not be falsely angry. The length, arch, height of the eyebrows are all a-ok which is a real accomplishment ;)

    Wanted makeup (general look – any tips would be much appreciated!) & eyebrow CCW, especially eyebrow color and shape. I have decent shape but suffer from the late 90s “plucked too far apart and now they won’t grow back” syndrome, so they come in a bit with brow product, especially on one side.

    I went from dark ash brown hair to black with ashy blue highlights over the weekend and am concerned about brow color. I’m not sure if it looks okay now with the dark brown powder I use (ABH Brow Powder duo in Ash Brown) or if I need to go darker. I am afraid if I go darker it won’t look natural and will look too harsh. Thoughts? Also I feel like I have one eyebrow I can't get the shape of correct.

    As for my makeup, I feel like my bathroom lights are deceiving because I put on blush and I even get heavy handed with it and once I get on my way to work, it looks like I don’t have any on!!

    Products used:

    Face:

    Smashbox Photo Finish Primer

    IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye in Light

    EL Double Wear foundation in 1C1

    Innisfree No Sebum mineral powder to set

    NARS blush in orgasm

    ABH Aurora Glow Kit – Eclipse to highlight temples/tops of cheeks and below/above center of lip; Luna on tip of nose

    Cover FX Setting Spray

    Eyes:

    Colourpop pressed powder shadow (can’t remember the color I use all over from lid to eyebrow, they don’t sell it anymore, but it’s a matte pale pink); Dragonfly (lid and crease), Glass Bull (center 2/3ds of lid), Now and Zen (to highlight inner eye corners)

    Urban Decay Perversion mascara

    Lips:

    KVD Liquid Lipstick in Lolita

    Brows:

    ABH Brow Powder Duo in Ash Brown using brush #12

    ABH clear brow gel

    I got it in the light colour, and as usually in tk maxx. It was opened, but I thought it was too good to pass up. So I cleaned the tip with rubbing alcohol.

    The colour is really nicely ashy and the liquid dries down to a very natural stain-like texture on my skin, which I really like. It just doesn't look like you have product on.

    One click was enough for me to contour my cheeks and jawline.

    It contains 5 ml, and I am certainly too cheap to buy something like this for its full price of 45 dollars, but this is a real score.

    With all those colorpop shadows I would be out at least $80.

    I had serious heart eyes the second I saw this palette because I love reds and purples, but seeing how some colors aren’t matte(I only like matte shadows)and I pretty much either own those nudes or don’t want them, it’s really not worth it for the price.

    I hope one day someone will come out with a red/purple-focused palette that’s entirely matte. Maybe I just need to finally start buying single shadows and make my ideal palette. But overall those singles would be more than the palette itself :/

    I was actually eyeing this palette and a few other red themed products for lunar new year. People born in the year of the dog would wear red throughout this year for good luck! I picked up the red Colourpop singles from your post and a MUFE aqua XL paint in red for eyeliner. Awesome dupes!

    Hi All!I know J* is problematic for many - which can be hard when a red-heavy (NOT neutral!) palette like Blood Sugar drops. Obviously, shop ya stash (that top row is verrry dupe-able with basics from your current collection) but for the more out-there shades, I tried to provide affordable dupes! Almost all ColourPop with one Coastal Scent single, and of course, a shout out to SugarPill with a few.

    Keep in mind - Much of Blood Sugar is said to be "pigments" and thus not technically (by US FDA standards) eye-safe (though "eye-safe" for most other countries). That being said - a few of the Colour Pop dupes are pigments as well! So if you have sensitive eyes - watch out!

    EDIT: I wanted to add that dupethat posted on their instagram a dupe-match of Blood Sugar to Venus XL of similar shades - but LC can be problematic, too! So consider this a semi-dupe guide for Venus XL too :)
