It’s on sale, is it worth it? Becca Be A Light face palette

Earlier this year I purchased two Becca Be A Light face palettes in the Light to Medium shade (one for me and one I gave as a gift). I have just started getting more use out of it after hearing excellent feedback from the friend I gifted one too.

The mirror is nice and the powders are absolutely stunning. They are seamless and glowing on the skin and this palette is reminiscent of the $80 Hourglass holiday palettes (only larger and cheaper!). This guy retails for $46 and is on sale for $29 currently at Sephora and online. The only cons I can find with this item are that the packaging easily shows fingerprints and I find the bronzer a little warm toned for my liking (but I can still make it work)

Overall, I’d say if you were considering this before or on the lookout for a face palette this is definitely one to pick up! I’d definitely say it is worth it. If you’re a VIB Rouge you can use your Rouge bonus right now to get 20% off the sale price (or if you’re another tier you can use your coupon in the coming weekends).

Too Faced Sweet Peach Glow-Review

So I’ve had this bad boy for a while now so I thought I’d share my thoughts with you all! I waited in that insane virtual line for hours to get my hands on this only to find out later it’s super easy to get your paws on. This sweet peach glow kit retails for $42 and contains a blush (or blush topper, rather), bronzer and highlighter.

This smells like peach rings candy. While I find this pleasant, I find the chocolate bar and other chocolate scented palettes overwhelming and off-putting so if you’re not into fake peach this is a hard pass. Also, the whole makeup smelling like food thing slightly weirds me out, I always wonder if that means it lessens the life and will expire sooner, maybe that’s be over thinking it but ick!

That being said I really like the blush, I enjoy the highlight and the bronzer isn’t for me. The blush is light and glowy and the perfect wash of peach for my cheeks. It applies well, as the product is not heavily pigmented which I find to be a positive thing for blushes. The highlighter is pretty and gives a natural glow to my face, not quite as subtle as hourglass highlighters but definitely not the crazy glow you get with Anastasia glow kits.

This bronzer could probably be pretty on the right person but for me it is far too orange. I have cool-toned, fair skin and this bronzer gives me more of a soft kiss of Tropicana (no pulp) rather than the sun-kissed bronze I was aiming for.

So if you consider that I’m not really a fan of the bronzer, that’s $15 wasted which is pretty steep. I say if you love this blush color, skip this and scoop up the papa don’t peach blush (which is gorgeous!) and if only the highlighter tickles your fancy, I’d opt for a a single peachy-toned highlighter instead.

Though I am satisfied with my purchase, I’d think this one through before dropping $42 on this baby.
