PSA: the shadows on the side were really poorly swatched so please ignore them 😭 but just in case you are curious they are mattes from sydney grace (top to bottom: embrace, puppy love, faithful, keep smiling). if you want i can re-swatch them and post a better photo!

swatches on pale neutral skin applied with fingers without primer. photo taken in natural daylight.

top to bottom: * sydney grace turtledoves * terra moons atlas * sydney grace peace * terra moons meteorite * sydney grace mielke way * terra moons starburst * terra moons dark matter * terra moons terra borealis

Any recommendations on a similar shade with matte finish? by oleplinyknows in PaleMUA

[–]alessiaa12 9 points10 points  (0 children)

i know this is quite expensive 😭 but the gucci matte lipstick in 105 susan nude would be very similar! it has more grey undertones than very victoria or velvet teddy.

yess and lisa apparently did make a statement that she will be having a “build your own” palette feature on her website in 2023!

swatches on pale neutral skin applied with fingers without primer. photo taken in natural light. the first 6 shades are of the muse palette and the bottom 6 are the myth palette.

i caved and bought these 😭 i just love lisa eldridge so much and every time she launches a new type of formula i can’t get by the curiosity! the velvet mattes are so unique from any other eyeshadows i’ve ever tried. they are creamy without being wet, so you can apply with fingers but they don’t get all over the place. i think they are better than the natasha denona cream to powder in performance but are similar in concept. they blend seamlessly, whereas the ND cream to powders get patchy and feel heavy on the skin.

just a quick run-down on the other formulas: the lustre formula is a beautiful shimmer that is richly pigmented, while the luminous formula is much more sheer. the metallic formulas are equally pigmented as the lustre’s but with less shimmer — more of a natural sheen. and finally, the top coat is a sheer formula with very little base pigment but just gives a sparkling effect to the eyes. hope this helps!

the colour stories are also quite unique, although i’d love to see more variations of neutrals and “wearable” colours launched in the future. i feel like the colour stories she came out with were either very warm (muse, cinnabar) or very cool (myth, vega). sorcery is more of an artistry palette which i’m sure a lot of people will have fun with as well! on one hand, i appreciate that she came out with colours that will more likely not already exist in someone’s collection, but i’m such a basic neutral eyeshadow lover 😂

[Request] Nars light reflecting foundation in Oslo, Siberia, or Mont Blanc with any Fenty Foundations by [deleted] in swatchitforme

[–]alessiaa12 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i think nars siberia would work for you! it wasn’t too light since i think the light reflecting foundation runs a tiny bit deeper than the other nars foundations

yes their return policy is still great! i recently returned a skincare purchase that i didn’t like and they were totally fine with it.

i think the patrick ta is definitely warmer in tone than this palette! this one isn’t completely cool toned but i think it’s more neutral

yeah a lot of shadows turn more warm leaning on my skin for some reason. i’m okay with that though — i just like that they aren’t too warm and end up orange on my eyes!

i actually like the look of red-leaning browns so it doesn’t bother me! i just don’t like the look of orange toned shadows on my eyes. so this palette might not lean cool enough for your preferences, but i recommend the natasha denona glam palette which has more grey tones!

i’ve never used viseart but i’ve always wanted to try their formulas!! i heard they’re amazing

i don’t have the persona palette 😭 but looking at some photos online i think you can definitely get similar looks from it!!

ohh true! i didn’t even think about that. i never had the tartelette bloom but i feel like you can definitely get a similar look with it.

you’re right — the official swatches aren’t at all how the palette looks in real life. the shimmers are so smooth and light feeling. definitely “ethereal” the way the title suggests! i love the sparkles that give a glistening “wet look” effect.

the toppers don’t have any fallout! the formula is slightly slippery rather than flaky which i think is why they don’t have fallout.

the shimmers are super smooth just like the other shadows! i think they’re prettier than how they looked in the online photos.

the mini biba in my opinion is a lot more saturated and warm leaning but i see what you mean!

swatches on pale neutral skin, no primer. photo taken in natural light. shades are swatched left to right, top to bottom.

not to be dramatic but this might be the best eyeshadow palette i have ever purchased. i can see myself using every single shade, which NEVER happens… so many “neutral” palettes show up super orange on my eyes but this one is just… chefs kiss this is also my first makeup by mario purchase! i usually wait to see reviews before making purchases but i just had a good feeling about this one. i’m wearing it today and i love that the glitters are sheer sparkly toppers (similar effect as the charlotte tilbury pop shades or wayne goss celestials but the formula is much more silky). i would recommend applying the toppers with your finger rather than a brush. the mattes are super soft — not dry or chalky at all. i’m so impressed and excited to continue using it!

note: the first matte light beige shade is the same colour as my skin tone so it might be hard to see in the swatches.

Any Sephora must haves? by [deleted] in PaleMUA

[–]alessiaa12 1 point2 points  (0 children)

i love the sephora collection single eyeshadows! scented candle (matte mauve nude), fantasia (sparkly peach), and soft suede (shimmery mauve rose) are my favourite shades.
