So, before I left the states I made a final trip to Ulta and ended up buying the majority of the iluvsarahii collection from Dose of Colors. I ended up getting the following here are my thoughts:
Eyeshadow palette: It comes in six shades. The packaging is really cute. I created 2 looks with the palette a day and night time shades. There are 2 mattes, 2 metallics, and 2 glitter shades. Check out my Instagram @laglammere for the videos!
Shades are as follows:
Poquito Mas: great inner corner/highlight shade. I actually used it on my face in the video and it was a nice color on my skin.
Sunglow: gold pigmented metallic shade
Wanderlust: Rust matte. I used it to deepen outer corners. It was blendable, not the creamiest matte that I’ve used.
Loungy: Great crease shade, formula same as wanderlust, needs some more finessing while blending, but not terrible!
Palma: STANDOUT SHADE! Beautiful green glitter shadow shade! I used this under my eyes for a pop of color in one look and as the pop of color on my lid in the other look. I wouldn’t really recommend under the eyes. It was burning my eyes! It looked really nice, maybe if a glitter glue was used-but hey I warned you!
Finders Keepers: A really nice shade very black with glitter! I used it to create a thick winged look and it turned out really nice!
Overall the palette was really cute and worked well. I think it would be great for travelling and I think that the shades will look great for the fall as well! I also think that it is more of a night time palette, very sexy and sultry.
I bought both highlighters in Bathe and Sol Mate! They are so fricking gorgeous! They however, do not suit my skin tone! They are both too dark for me! When I look straight on you can see the dark marks on my face and then I turn to the side and it is blinding. I will probably send them to my friend or use them in other ways…good news to all of you medium and dark skin toned ladies, I think this would look fabulous on you! Also, the formula is really nice : )
Lastly, I bought the lip shades in brillo, barely there, and nude chica. Nude chica is a nude liquid lip, barely there is a gloss, and brillo is a glittery gloss. My swatch for barely there did not come out too well, I have seen other posts and mine looks a little streaky and thick. I did apply a lighter hand in my video and it looked good plus thecolor is really nice!
Overall, I thought this was a pretty nice collection!
Here are some looks that I created-a toned down one for day and a glam night look:
