ABH Moonchild & KVD Alchemist DUPES! MBA Cosmetics Eclipse Highlights

*affiliate links used*

Pastel Rainbow GLOW ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ  Hey beauty babes, today I wanted to pop in real quick to show off this fun pastel rainbow look I created a while back. I've even got a little video demo to share of it as well... This is just a QUICK video simply put to music (no voice over). I originally made this video and these photos for my Instagram account, but decided to post it here too. For this look I am using the MBA Cosmetics Eclipse Highlight Collection, which is a total dupe for the ABH Moonchild Glow Kit and/or the KVD Alchemist Holographic Palette.
The Eclipse Highlight Collection is SO pretty! These are SHIFTERS, so they appear white in the jar but shift colors once you apply! And if you switch up the base you apply them to (say a while or black base, no base, a colored lipstick) they will look different. These highlights are perfect for custom creating your own duo-chrome shadows too! Use them alone for a soft glow or as a 'highlight for a softer more subtle look.. Or use them over another eyeshadow color or eyeliner for a super fun, dramatic new look! The possibilities are about endless with this fun collection!

These are semi sheer colors that are slightly pearlescent and look great used with other eyeshadows or over lipstick or lip balm. Can also be added to lotions for an all over body shimmer.

Celestial-Violet/Purple
Aurora-Blue
Sphinx-Green
Orion-Golden Orange
Saturn-Pinkish Red
Odyssey-Reddish Copper

This entire collection is available in a set of 6 shades for just $16 or less with code AGAPELOVE15 ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ’ธ You can also purchase each of them individually or purchase a sample size collection for just $6! 

EYES:
Eclipse Highlight in Sphinx on my inner corner & Aurora on my brow bone.
Mascara is essence makeup Rock N Doll crazy xxxl volume mascara! (Its amazing!)

FACE:
Eclipse Highlights Celestial & Saturn on cheekbones & Orion on nose.

LIPS:
Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick in Knight Rider as a base (use code AGAPE for $$ off). 
Topped it with Eclipse Highlights in Odessey on upper lip & Celestial bottom lip! Faux Septum ring also from MBA Cosmetics!


Push Play and see these highlights in action for yourself! *SIDE NOTE* I have this collection in stack-able jars, which are no longer available.

BlendSMART Rotating Foundation Brush | Gimmick or Great!?

*affiliate links used*
Hi beauty babes - today I have a review and demo of the blendSMART2 starter set + travel bag! This is a very interesting and unique device that I was excited to try out. Today I am going to demo it for you using foundation, concealer as well as cream contour and blush! And of course share my thoughts on it - I'll let you know if I think its just a gimmick or something great!

I received this product complimentary from blendSMART USA via Octoly. All opinions are 100% my own! If you are a blogger, or youtube/Instagram Influencer interested in getting products for review - Sign up (here) for Octoly - an easy way to get free products to review!!
Before we get to the video and demo, here is a little info on the brush! This is an all-in-one, rotating makeup brush that claims to combines innovation and technology to deliver a better solution to the inconsistencies of blending makeup. This set includes the handle needed to use any of blendsmart's brush heads, the universal foundation brush, plus the travel bag that easily holds the handle and two additional brush heads. You can find this brush at Dillards or at Sephora where the travel  bag will be a gift with purchase!

Find this product here:
-Sephora
-Dillard's

*One thing I forgot to mention in the video is the price! It actually is a bit of a pricey tool - so that is another possible "downside" to this device... But watch the video... You will learn my thoughts and can see the results of it for yourself. So you can decide if its worth the price for you or not.*
