REVIEW AND SWATCHES: LORAC PRO Palette 3

ITEM: LORAC PRO Palette 3 (U.S. Link and Price HERE)
PRICE: $82.99AUD (Price at myqt.com.au)

So... with Christmas around the corner, I thought that doing a review on this little gem was a perfect idea! And with the differing views that are available out there on this little guy, I would like to put in my little two cents about the palette! And as you can see, the palette is the Lorac Pro Palette 3!



I have had it for a while. But if you follow me on social media (Instagram: @mnh.beauty and Snapchat: @mnhwangg) you would know that FT work has been killing me and just don't have time to play around with makeup much. So despite having had it for ages, this blog post is going up super late. I didn't want to give you a half decent review, but wanted to make sure it was one that was well-informed and after at least a couple of uses. So here goes nothing!

QUICKIE: Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Oil

ITEM: Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Oil (U.S. Link & Price HERE)
PRICE: $61AUD (Price at MECCA) 

So being a super dry skin girl, as soon as I heard that there was going to be a primer oil, I kept my eyes peeled and got it as soon as it released in MECCA Maxima! And you know, I would never let ya'll down - I used it, abused it and now I am ready to give you a Quickie Review on it!

REVIEW AND SWATCHES: Jaclyn Hill X BECCA Cosmetics Champagne Glow

ITEMS: Jaclyn Hill x BECCA Cosmetics Champagne Glow Collection
PRICES: As below

U.S. Second Release date: 16 June 2016
Australia Release date: 7 July 2016

I am finally reviewing the BECCA x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Glow Collection! I was fortunate enough to have it sent to me (which I posted live on snapchat @mnhwanggg). But I would like you all the note that this is not sponsored, this is honest and genuine to the fullest.


Okay, so knowing that the second release is tomorrow for the U.S., I decided to quickly get this up in the nick of time to give you guys full swatches and reviews of the products.

SO LET’S GET STARTED.

But before I do, sorry that some of the products have no photos, and sorry that some are poor quality. I have had some technical difficulties. Luckily I have all the reviews and swatches ready for the LIMITED EDITION products in the launch. I am working on the others to fix them! I have posted this because I wanted it up before/during the U.S. second launch. APOLOGIES. Thanks for understanding.

REVIEW AND SWATCHES: Morphe 35O & 35K Palette

ITEM: Morphe 35O Palette & 35K Palette (Links are to the actual Morphe Website. For Australian retailers, please see below).
PRICE: $22.99USD (Price on the Morphe Website)

So I am sure everybody knows that one of the most hyped about brands these days is undoubtedly Morphe Brushes. And of course one of the most popular items from them is the 35O Palette. (And I mean, the popularity is so justifiable considering the gorgeous shades and the hype!) With all of this said, you know that I would have to do a review on something that is so raved about.

I have had the palette for a while now, but it took me so long to get on the review wagon because I didn't want to write about something that is sold out. But since this palette gets sold out within hours of getting released, I realised (finally) that it will be impossible to time this perfectly. That aiming to get this post up while the product is in stock will be close to impossible. So I decided to finally just review it! It is constantly restocked so don't fret! If you keep a close eye on their instagram, they are always updating you on when the palette is about to be restocked (and it does happen on the regular)! So just keep your eyes peeled. 

I know that they have the newer versions of the 35O (with the all matte and all shimmer versions), but I think this palette is still more popular so I think the review is warranted. I am doing the review with the 35K palette (because you know, 2 in 1 is always good)! They are somewhat similar and somewhat different palettes so I thought I would kill two birds with one stone in this post. So I hope you enjoy!

SPEND OR SAVE?: Viseart Neutral Matte Palette vs Stila Eyes Are the Window to the Mind Palette

HIGH END ITEM: Viseart Neutral Matte Palette (01) (U.S. Price and Link HERE) 
RRP: $98AUD (Price at PM Studio)

AFFORDABLE ITEM: Stila Eyes Are the Window to the Mind Palette (U.S. Price and Link HERE)
RRP: $78AUD (Price at MECCA)

I know that this SPEND OR SAVE is again one which doesn't include an "affordable" product - that I am comparing two more expensive products. But there is quite a significant price difference between these two products so I thought that it would still be worth a SPEND OR SAVE post.



So I was doing a friend's makeup for her wedding and was explaining the colours I was about to use and what kind of products I was going to use. Then somehow I was holding the Stila Palette in one hand and the Viseart in the other and I was like... what?? They look so similar. Both an all matte palette, both have that gorgeous red-earthy-terracotta shade, both quite neutral and everyday shades, both WOW! So obviously, I needed to do a post comparing them!

I hope you enjoy it anyway, and leave a comment below with requests for future posts guys!
