Bitter.Lace.Beauty Highlights | Photo & Video Swatches

Hey beauty babes, I am so glad you are here! Today, I have some really unique and wonderful Highlights show tell you about. They come from a wonderful little etsy shop called Bitter Lace Beauty! If you watch my Mailbox Monday videos on my youtube channel or follow me on Instagram you may recognize this shop already. As I have featured it a few times already! You all know how much I love to support small business, so when I discovered this little gem, I couldn't help but share. ♥ I first fell in love with Bitter Lace Beauty's amazing handmade magnetic makeup palettes! Jenna - the beauty behind the biz makes fabulous wooden magnetic palettes that are amazing. She also offers custom designs too - pictured below is a custom design I had ordered. To my pleasant surprise, when I got my palette she had thrown in a complimentary highlight! ♥ And that's when I fell head over heels in LOVE with her highlights! The colors are unique and stunning and the quality is just top notch. I swear you will fall in love with them too. ;)
After featuring the highlight 'Royalty' (pictured above) that she had sent me, several people had messaged Jenna about discovering her highlights from me! Which was so exciting here, so she had asked if I'd be willing to try out and feature the rest of her highlight - to which of course I said yes! So she sent me her 2015 highlight collection! So I've NINE highlights to show off! As you can see here I've got a couple photo swatches below - but I encourage you to watch the video at the end of this post so you can see the "live" swatches of all 9 highlight! I demo all of the highlights on my cheeks, so you can see the true beauty of these unique and beautiful highlights! ♥

Pictured below I am wearing one the LE Fall Highlight in 'Sweater Weather'. This one is my absolute favorite! Its a unique peachy bronze highlight with an extreme gold shift that includes sparks of red, green and copper! Its beyond stunning - the camera will never do it justice.

One unique thing about these highlights is the fun and beautiful designs she impresses on them! Check out this one below called 'Amuck' named in honor of Hocus Pocus! This is another LE highlight - created during October/Halloween as you may have guessed! ;) This one is a dusty lilac with a slight green shift with sparks of purple, blue, and gold. A truly unique color! ♥ 

The next two photos feature the highlight 'Enchanted', which is a pearly white iridescent rainbow shade.  
Here are each of the highlights (3 of the pans feature 2 shades each side by side)

First Pan contains:
Enchanted -white and swatched above and Curiouser -Teal swatched in the next few photos

Second Pan contains:
New Sea Shells - a Mermaid Purple shade and True Loves Kiss  - a pinky-nude shade

Third Pan contains:
Gleam & Glow - a gorgeous Rose Gold shade and Royalty - a yellow gold

The last 3 pans are single shades, these are the Limited Edition Holiday Highlights!
♥Amuck - pictured and described above
♥Sweater Weather - swatched and described above
♥Let It Glow - an icy intense silver with a high shine blue veining that shifts to a slight purple.

As mentioned... Below I am wearing the highlight 'Curiouser'. Curiouser is one of the more unique highlights, being that its a teal blue shade! While its not a typical shade you may consider for a highlight, its actually quite stunning and pairs well with the mauve pink blush I am wearing, and subtle eye look!

Which btw if anyone is curious - I am wearing Milani's Rose Blush in Romantic Rose and Urban Decay's glitter liner in ACDC, their Subversion primer & Perversion Mascara
Alrightly - now lets get to the video! If you have the time, I definitely encourage you to and see ALL of the swatches. Also I wanted to mention some GOOD NEWS! I mention in the video that I thought the 2015 collection of highlights would be gone for good, because Jenna has come out with a whole NEW line of highlights for 2016! However, I recently talked to her and was informed that she will actually be restocking ALL the 2015 highlights PLUS the new ones! So you will STILL be able to get the ones featured here! The only exception would be the LE shades of course - thought at the moment both Sweather Weather and Let it Glow have not sold out yet. SO if you want them, get your hands on them now before they are gone for good. ♥
