Norvina palette: Hear it from the ones we follow on social media🧚🏽‍♀️

     So….was it something you were waiting for,  because I know myself and others in the beauty community were anticipating this as well. Norvina, the new eyeshadow palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills. While not available in Ulta or Sephora until August 5th, this palette was is currently available online for purchase on ABH’s website. Lucky for us, some of my favorite YouTubers have gotten their hands on this palette and I am here for the tea.

Alright so let’s get into this palette: 

     On the first look, the Norvina eyeshadow palette gives us the look just as the Subculture, Modern Renaissance and Soft Glam palettes. Soft, velour-type feel to the cover of the palette, putting you definitely in the mood and prepared to be blown away by the shades that are inside this gorgeous little oddity. So…..what kind of reactions did we get from our favorite makeup artists? Let’s check it out:

Luscious Massacr

One of my favorite YouTubers out of south Texas who is known for giving us potent fantasy through makeup and drag. Have you seen this beauty?

     While known for her drag fantasy makeup, its hard to not acknowledge her raw talent for artistry.          

Who else to give us the realness on the new Norvina palette other than ✨LUSHIOUS MASSACR✨

Now, when I initially saw the palette, I was appreciative of the palette name ‘Base’, letting users known its purpose. After I got over the appreciation of that,  I was thinking one thing and one thing only. Lucky for me, Lushious Massacr was bold enough to say it for us in her YouTube video at the 1:56 mark of her review/tutorial:

Thank you for saying it for us all, Lushious…..where in the hell is this shade that the box is covered in? Give us this color!!!!!!

I’m expecting to get a more vibrant range of colors, centered around the color of the palette, but it didn’t happen. Don’t get me wrong, the palette is beautiful with a even number of mattes and shimmers (girl, that looks like glitter), but where I think the palette missed the mark is with delivering what we were expecting when we saw the shade color and mood the palette cover gave us. 

Make sure to check out Lushious Massacr on Youtube and follow her to see her sickening looks on Instagram. Being that she’s from the south like me, I love to see my beautiful people giving us life and sharing their artistry with the world.

*Thank you to all of my subscribers and fans overseas and followers from Polyvore and UrStyle. I love you all 😍😍😍

* Come on now, NO CONS to this Urban Decay palette? I think we should wait a little longer to see because that’s not what I’ve been seeing on YouTube reviews 👀

*Hey, hey….all you get is 12 shades, so don’t shoot the messenger. I didn’t even bother looking at the reviews because can you consider the reviews to be diverse and unbiased? Come on Benefits Cosmetics!

* I had to double-check the price of this palette. $38.00 for a palette with only eight shades? THAT’S $4.75 PER SHADE! Gurl, I can not……the Venus XL palette: Screen Shot 2018-07-19 at 9.37.04 PM

This palette is $56.00 for 18 shades….that’s $3.11 for per shade. What is the deal with the price? Is this normal?????

 

You know what, I gotta take a break from this one for the day. I gotta say that I’m a bit shocked at the price of Lime Crime’s eyeshadow palette, especially since they are an online-only brand at Ulta. Is there anywhere that you can physically see this product before buying it or is it a private company? 

Let me know in the comments below.

Organic to Green - Liquid Coconut Oil

Beauty oils for your skin

    Everyone wants their skin to look flawless, and there some more than others that are willing to try anything to get it. Oftentimes, we tend to search among the products in our stores when Mother Nature has provided the essentials at our fingertips. Here are some of the beneficial oils for your skin’s health:

COCONUT OIL

    While in recent studies, coconut oil is believed to introduce bad LDL cholesterol levels and slightly increasing the chances of heart disease (Willet, W,. MD, Harvard Health Publishing 2011), there are benefits. Coconut oil is good for the skin, leaving a smooth, radiant finish and more subtle feel after a short time of use. Many women have admitted to using coconut oil as a nightly moisturizer instead of expensive brand products. 

ROSEHIP

Rosehips

Rosehip oil is widely known for long-term treatment of minor discolorations from acne, age spots and wrinkles. It is high in antioxidants and vitamin A and those wonderful fats acids that assist in your skin’s texture and even tone. 

ARGON

Its seen in just about every beauty store you can think of – argon oil. This oil is widely used in damp hair to moisturize or even dry hair to minimize frizz as a ‘quick fix’. Its been known to be used at the early signs of stretch marks and as a nighttime hydrating serum. 

JOJOBA

Jojoba-oil

Can’t manage to get all of your makeup off and ran out of your favorite makeup remover? Jojoba oil will work just fine. While known as an anti-imflammatory, jojoba oil can also be used at the first signs for acne to assist in making them go away faster. Yes, I know it is an ‘oil’ technically, but jojoba is also known to be work well on skin that is prone to be quite oily. 

HEMP SEED

    Affectionately known as a ‘super oil’, hemp seed oil is packed with vitamins such as omega 3, omega 6, potassiumphosphorus, zinc, magnesium, calcium, an other goodies. Its also known to improve your entire cardiovascular system’s health and even reverse the aging process on your skin. 

OLIVE OIL

You know so years so, I heard a rumor that one of the ways in which Whitney Houston kept her youthful appearance and radiant skin was by taking baths that included olive oil. According to Dr. Mercola’s website, here are some of the many benefits to olive oil:

  • Moisturizing skin
  • Improving skin elasticity and its regenerative properties
  • Providing antioxidants and good fats to fight free radicals and facilitate skin healing
  • Reducing under-eye wrinkles
  • Massaging dry, flakey scalp or dandruff
  • Massaging frizzy hair or split ends (lightly warmed olive oil)

ALMOND OIL

Almond oil

Deep cleaning is one of many things that almond oil is used for in its organic form.  Moisturizing the skin, relieving the irritation of eczema and psoriasis, treating rashes and reduces wrinkles are some of many of almond oil.

LAVENDER

Lavender

     While not widely known, lavender is actually an anti-inflammatory, which means it can be used to treat irritated or itchy skin if no other treatment is readily available. As widely used for aromatherapy, lavender oil can also be used to treat acne, and scars from acne, and eczema, This oil is also known to treat hair loss and even promote hair growth.

TEA TREE OIL

TEA-TREE.jpg

     Extracted from the Melaleuca Alternifolia tree, tea tree is a known solvent that absorbs oil, assists to treat and prevent acne. Tea tree has been credited to smooth the skin and provide that fresh, open-pore feeling after use. A downside to using tea tree is the odor, if  you are sensitive to smell. Another issue is for people with somewhat oily skin. Because tea tree IS an oil, it may not be in your best interest to use on a daily basis. All in all, tea tree oil gives your skin that ‘deep clean’ feeling.
