HUDA Beauty Palette Review

All over Instagram I have seen the Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette. I was hesitant to get it because I wasn’t sure if the bold 3D metals would stay on my eyes. Well, I waited too long and the palette sold out before I could get it! I have been waiting to get the palette on the Sephora site for over a month but it has been sold out and not restocked!

I was about to order it on her personal site, but she is located in Dubai and the shipping was really expensive. I just so happened to walk into Sephora yesterday and decided to walk back to her display and see if it was in-stock. Well, it WAS! I was so excited I grabbed one before I could think and got it.

Today, I tried my first Huda look that I call the ‘Huda Rose Gold Effect Look.’ I used the 3D Rose Gold Medal along with Flamingo in the crease and Black Truffle on the outer corner. I have to say I LOVE IT! I didn’t use a primer and the shadows stayed in place all day. The one thing I will say, is the photo above didn’t do it justice. The colors really popped  when you see it in person and they have that bold lavish effect I absolutely love.
This palette is a definite 10 for me! See more on my INSTA @HeyitsCarlyRae
Have YOU tried this Huda palette, which is your favorite color?

I’m a Sweet Peach Girl

So as most of you guys know I love makeup. I’ve read so many reviews on the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette and have wanted it for so long! Every time I go to purchase it it’s sold out in-store. But the other day when I walked into Ulta I was in luck because they just got in their shipment of it and were fully stocked! I grabbed one and couldn’t wait to go home and try it.

Overall I absolutely LOVE this product. At first I thought it might hurt my eyes because it is scents and definitely smells like peaches which I love. It sounds weird but it smells amazing even when you wear the product! But the good news is the product doesn’t bother me. I can wear it all day and it’s awesome, it doesn’t come off when you wear it or anything.

Today I’m wearing a mix of White Peach, Cobbler, and Caramelized. I mixed the Cobbler and Caramelized colors together to achieve a mix of hues. I applied that on the top of my lid and then to accent underneath my eyebrows I use the Nectar and White Peach.
The colors are so easy to apply and is my new ‘go-to’ palette. I’m replacing my Naked Palette with this one for now! Underneath my eye I used Tempting to give an accent color.

What colors are your favorite in this palette?! I can’t wait to try a new peach smokey look next time I use it tomorrow. Above I posted a close-up of the palette so if you don’t have yet or aren’t familiar you can see what a close-up look of the palette actually looks like.
I love the fact that it has a mix of colors so the hues can look good on any skin tone which I think is a huge key! COMMENT BELOW if you love the SWEET Peach Palette!

Peak Cosmetics: 3D Fiber Lashes

I’ve had so many write-ins about what I use on my lashes. Well I usually can’t go anywhere without using my 3D Fiber Lash Kit from Peak Cosmetics. I was sent their lash kit as well as their amazing lip kits and I absolutely love their entire line!
The lash kit is one of my favorites because there are two steps. One is for a ‘base’ or Application Gel that basically adds a sticky coat and then there is a feather like finish known as the ‘Natural Fibers’ that you apply directly after and then again seal your lashes with the Application Gel.

At first I had no idea how it would but after I followed the steps the first time I found it super simple. The Natural Fibers is basically feathers that stick to your lashes. Think of fake lashes only easy to apply on your own lashes. It gives you the same kind of effect on your lashes that I absolutely love!
It really does make your lashes have that 3D effect that I love! This is definitely a mascara you guys want to check-out! 🙂

Comment below and let me know your favorite mascara and if you’ve tried their mascara yet!
Be sure to add me on SnapChat: HeyitsCarlyRae or Follow me on Instagram: HeyitsCarlyRae to WATCH me apply this mascara. I’m also featuring videos today!
