I love spooky season it’s so much fun! Many brands create fun quality palettes at an affordable price You can be whoever you want and express even more thru makeup I don’t have the skills to do a full face but that doesn’t mean I cannot enjoy the season on my way by chiming in with easy cute looks and so do you! 👻
Hola how are you my sweets! I hope you have been enjoying the spooky season! I hope you and your loved ones are well and safe. Me I’m good I went to an oculofacial plastic surgeon. Yep, I did some treatments for my face! Did botox and fillers and I will share my experience with you all real soon let me tell ya I was not prepared on how the process is! So stay tuned for that. Let’s jump to today’s episode 🙃
I bought a little too many Halloween themed palettes 🤭 When you love makeup as I do is hard to resist new launches and oh my goodness they are new ones very often like every week so in this episode, I will talk about 4 Palettes 👻
It’s freaking Bats! 🦇
This palette is from Shroud Cosmetics which is an Indie brand they are animal cruelty-free, 100% vegan, they don’t do business with companies that do animal testing is based in the USA, the founder is Chloe T who started the company at just 16 years old under another brand name now rebranded shroud cosmetics. This handmade palette is a collab with my favorite you tuber battybean so when I saw was a collab with her I jumped on it!
The palette is a 9 pan eyeshadow palette that contains shimmers, mattes, duo-chrome finish, and metallic finish. I love palettes this size is easier to figure out an eye look 😊 the palette is pigmented rich in its colors the mattes are creamy, with minimal fallout. The shimmers feel not as creamy they have texture to them but this does not make them less beautiful 🥰
Per their website: Handbook: A gorgeous chartreuse shimmer • Spooky: The most perfect creamy periwinkle matte • Apparition: A purple with an intense gold duochrome flash • Addams: A rich deep teal green matte • Sam: The most intense light sage green metallic • Trapa: The perfect grungy yellow matte • Zero: A super magical lavender with an intense green duochrome flash • Derry: A deep eggplant maroon purple matte • Grim: A deep aqua blue shimmer.

I enjoy this palette very much my favorite shades are Handbook, spooky, and Zero. Trapa needs a little build-up on medium skin tones like I am. Overall a fun beautiful quality palette. Retails for $ 35 and is currently sold out hopefully they restock it. I give it a 10 of 10!

The Corpse Bride 🦴💀
From the Makeup revolution, the collection of the corpse bride is so cute, to say the least! I got this palette and the Newlyweds. The brand is UK-based, animal cruelty-free, vegan. The founder is Adam Minto and they pride themselves in making affordable products. The palette is an 18 eyeshadow pan small palette in the form of a butterfly that has mattes and shimmers embossed with butterflies.
The mattes are creamy and pigmented, there is fallout which is not a problem for me since I always do eyes first but something to consider if you care about that. The shimmers are creamy to the touch they are not high shine they are soft and nice, my favorite shades are eternal love looks beautiful under lower lash gives that extra touch to a look also liked the darkness. The palette cost is $ 20 and including international shipping for two palettes came to $ 33.38 which is not bad at all. The Packaging feels like foam and cardboard is not luxurious I mention this since some beauties care a lot about packaging 😊

Overall I did enjoy the palette the color story is colorful and beautiful, I wish the shimmers were more impactful but I do appreciate the shadows being pigmented and that once on the lid they last all day 🙃 It is currently in stock. I give it an 8 of 10!

The Newlyweds 🧟♂️💀
This Palette is also from the Makeup revolution this is a 9 eye shadow pan of Mattes and shimmers embossed with a Skull. The mattes are pigmented, the shimmers are ok not super high shine but are indeed nice. There is fallout in the pan to keep that in mind. My favorite shades are Hopscotch, not mine and love triangle this one looks so nice under the bottom eyelash almost holographic I love it 🙃 The packaging is sturdy, feels like plastic, and is nice so adorable.

This palette is so cute! The price is $12 which is a great price is in stock they ship it fast and are not as expensive I give it an 8 out of 10!
Haunted Europe 🧟♂️
This palette is from Nomad Cosmetics an Indie brand the founders are a married couple Felicia and Antti Rintanen they are travelers and have been to more than 70 countries they create their palettes inspired in the countries they visit. This makes this brand fun and interesting indeed I perceive this couple as very down to earth they do comment if you tag them and they handwrite a thank you note with your purchase! Also, another thing to mention when you buy this palette part of the proceeds goes to bat conservation international which is awesome to me!
The brand is cruelty-free and vegan. The palette has 9 mattes and 9 shimmers. The eye shadows are creamy, there is minimal fallout, some shimmers like Houska Castle are super Metallic and so gorgeous! I’m in love with it! Now Bloody Mary I wish was more impactful more metallic but is still a nice shade. The shades I love besides Houska Castle are the Catacombs, Frankenstein, and Merry Cemetery. The mattes are pigmented. I do like this palette is fun. The color story has some redundant colors, like two golds for example only one should be good they could have put other colors instead like yellow and blue but is a good palette to add to your collection 😊 the packaging feels like cardboard but the cover is amazing it’s beautiful they put thought and care in the packaging I was attracted immediately just for the packaging.
