Huda Beauty Topaz Obsessions Palette, Swatches & Eye Look

Makeup Looks, Product Reviews, Uncategorized

Hello beauties, hope you’re having a good Monday, I’m back today with the second of the new Huda Beauty Obsession palettes. The Topaz obsessions is perfect for those who like warm shades and it just screams autumn/fall. Keep reading for review, swatches and two eye looks.

A dream come true for those Huda-holics who can’t squeeze their palettes into overstretched make up bags (or those yet to sample her game-changing shadows) this Topaz Obsessions Palette unites nine pigment-packed powders – four vibrant duo-chrome shimmers and five creamy mattes –  in rich rose gold, amber, burnished bronzes and tangerine orange for the ultimate sophisticated polish.

Packaging

This palette has the same packaging as the rest of the obsessions palettes but with the exception of it being a gorgeous burnt orange colour to match the topaz theme. The shadows are nicely spaced out, this makes it easy to dip your eyeshadow brushes into the pan without picking up another colour. On the underside of the lid you will find a great quality mirror. Its compact size makes this palette perfect for travelling, this is the pocket rocket of palettes.

Shades

This palette has 9 shades, which consists of 5 mattes and 4 shimmers. There is enough shades in this palette to create a handful of warm looks.

Formula

Starting with the matte shades, they have the same formula as the emerald obsessions, very smooth with little fallout. Unfortunately I didn’t find the mattes as pigmented as other obsessions palettes. They needed building up for a great colour payoff and the dark brown shade on the last row was very patchy. The shimmers however are amazing, they have a super creamy formula that are packed with pigment and blend out easily. There is a small amount of fallout with the shimmers so go careful not to push too hard in the pan.

  • Yellow toned orange matte
  • Rich copper shimmer
  • Burnt orange matte
  • Warm gold shimmer
  • Salmon pink matte

  • Dark bronze shimmer
  • Chocolate brown matte
  • Terracota Orange
  • Light bronze shimmer

Using shades ‘5’ for the transition. Shade ‘3’ to create the shape, shade ‘7’ to deepen the outer corner and bottom lash line and ‘4’ in the centre of the lid.

Using shade ‘8’ on the outer corner to create the shape. Shade ‘5’ in the inner corner and shade ‘7’ on the bottom lash line. Winged liner using Kat Von D Tattoo Liner.

Miss Patisserie Bath Haul And Review

Product Reviews, Uncategorized

Hello beauties, my favourite thing in the evening is a good bath to relax and wash the day off and i rarely have one without adding some kind of bubble bath, bar or bomb to the water. At Christmas I was gifted these three items from family and I had never heard of the brand before so I was really excited to try them out and reveiw them for you beauties.

Disclaimer- This post contains affiliate links which may make me a small commission, that being said all opinions and reviews are my own and I wouldn’t recommend something I didn’t love and wouldn’t buy myself.

Miss Patisserie create cruelty free and vegan bath and body products that use natural ingredients that nourish the body. They sell funky bath balls, slabs, crumble, melts, soaps, body scrubs, soufflés, perfume, candles, face products and much more.

Miss Patisserie Watermelon Sugar Scrub

I hate having dry skin and always like to use a body scrub in my shower/bath routine. The scrub comes in a air tight glass jar and has a simple yet effective packaging, letting the product inside do all the talking. The scrub contains jojoba and sweet almond oils that moisturise and hydrate the skin as well as exfoliating sugar to scrub off any dead skin and leave your skin smooth.

Directions: Give the scrub a good stir before using, take a small amount and massage into body in circular motions, then rinse with warm water!.

This has a gorgeous sweet watermelon scent that reminds me of the daiquiri cocktails, a little goes a long way with this and I never have to moisturise after the bath as it leaves a slight residue on your body. My favourite thing about this scrub is how gentle it is on the skin, I hate ones that are really scratchy. This costs £13 for 480g.

Miss Patisserie Bath Crumble

I had never tried a bath crumble before using this, it is basically a crushed up bath bomb mixture in a bag. I love the blue and pink colours.

Directions: Sprinkle desired amount into a warm bath.

You only need a small amount to create gorgeous bright coloured foamy water that has a citrusy scent. I think that this is a cheaper alternative to buying just one bath bomb as you can get many baths from this 400g bag. And it only costs £6.50!.

Miss Patisserie Let it snow Bath Slab

Unfortunately I have looked everywhere trying to find a link to this but it was part of their limited edition Christmas range so its no longer for sale. They do however have other different flavoured ones that they sell. This is the same kind of formula as the bath crumble just in a  solid slab/bar shape. I love the bright pink design with the cosmetics silver and gold detailing.

Directions: Break of a chunk or two and add to a warm bath.

This creates the most luxurious pink water and I was pleasantly surprised on just how colourful two small cubes made it, you get two slabs in the box which is enough for roughly 8 baths, depending on how sparingly you use them. this slab in particular has a sweet, floral scent and costs £5 for 210g

Overall I am so pleased with this brand and the products I tried, I cant wait to try more from them, especially their coffee body scrubs!.
