Maybelline’s Lemonade Craze Palette! Hit or Miss?

img_8777

Definitely a HIT for me! Most “drugstore” brands don’t make palettes like this Lemonade Craze palette from Maybelline.  I really enjoyed how blend-able the shades are.  Compared to other brands on the market that have put out some of these same colors, I have to give it a 9 out of 10.  The pigments are true to Maybelline’s image.  Soft, colorful, elegant yet not overwhelming.

I have to admit that I was expecting the yellow shade itself to pop more. There’s a point where it seems to stop as far as vibrancy goes no matter how much you pack it on.  I did use a white base primer before I put it on in this look above but it didn’t show up as well compared to the way it looks in the palette.  I think that would be my only down point for this palette.

Being that the yellow shade is the center point of the palette, “Lemonade Craze,” I wanted it to pop effortlessly.  This is my first time using it and I plan on trying it again with a different primer to see if it has a different effect.  The rest of the shades are completely fine with me.  The shimmer shades are a little creamy which makes it easy to spread and the mattes seem to have a normal amount of fallout. Nothing uncommon.

Colors used for this look: Sweet Tea (Transition), Ice Pop (Inner and Outer Corner). Citrus (Middle of lid) and Lemonade Craze (bottom lash line) mixed with Ice Pop.

I see myself having plenty of product to work with and being able to do several looks with this palette.  The shade “Citrus” is going to be my absolute favorite. (Bottom left rectangular shade) It’s a beautiful golden yellow shimmer/soft glittery shade with a pinkish red hue to it.  I also really like Sweet Tea, Coral Punch and Ice Pop.  This is a very fun palette to have on hand.

The Lemonade Craze Palette is $10.99 on Maybelline’s website and in store where Maybelline is sold. I recommend it to the beauty lover that loves subtle pops of color for an everyday look or just on occasions where they want something a little extra on their eyes.  Here are all of the Maybelline products that were used to create this fun makeup look.

Also be on the look out for Maybelline’s upcoming release of Lemonade Craze’s sister palette, Soda Pop! It is scheduled to drop this fall according to the company.  Here’s what it looks like.

Karity’s Pink Highlighter Palette

 Ok I have to tell you about this palette! First, let me say that I am deeply impressed with Karity’s Highlight palette, the (1st) Pink Collection. I have a preference when it comes to highlighters. To me, there’s nothing worse than spending an hour or more on perfecting a makeup look then putting on a highlighter that fly’s all over your face and ruins it.

Highlighter color: Risque

These four-color options in this palette all have a pink hue to them.  My favorite color in this palette is Risque.  It’s a golden pink that works out great on my skin tone. I prefer a gold naturally but it’s nice to be able to add pink in so that I don’t have to put on a blush.  Kind of kills two birds with one stone for me. If I can wear one product instead of two or multiple, it’s a win for me.

Highlighter color: Desire

 

I had never tried any of Karity’s products before but have heard and read great mentions about the brand from other bloggers, artists and YouTuber’s.  Upon receiving the palette, I remember thinking about how clean and sleek the design was.  The packaging seemed very sturdy to me as well. What takes the cake for me is how velvety smooth the highlighter pigments are. Literally no fly away especially when applied with a soft haired brush.

Now aren’t these palettes just beautiful? They currently have two highlighter palette options in Pink or Gold. I am definitely interested in purchasing the second one. If you enjoy straight to the point, non chalky, easy build-able kinds of highlighters then this one is for you.  The pans in this palette are a very decent size and give plenty of product to use. In my opinion is passes its worth and price of $25.
