Not going to lie, I originally considered this palette because of all the hype around Jaclyn Hill. I don’t follow her on Youtube but Instagram swatches can get even the best of us.

What made this trio more compelling was the results when I Google searched the ‘Blushed Copper on Dark Skin.’ Search it yourself and you will not be disappointed. It looked so good on the Black women who reviewed it that I had to see if it would work with yellower undertones.

I picked this up at Sephora for $44CAD.

Each one of these is just under 1/3 the size of a regular Shimmering Skin Perfector. You’re not actually getting much of a value (if any) but I prefer smaller pan size with greater variation because I hardly ever finish any one product.

I was a huge fan of the BITE holiday set from a couple years ago and decided that I had waited long enough to pick up another.  Three of four of the colours work well for women of colour. And I’ve heard complaints about Café from even the fairest of people, so at least we’re all suffering with an equally useless shade together.

It seems that this is sold out online but hopefully a local store still carries it if you’d like to pick it up.

The Lolita bandwagon has been such a hit for those who have light skin that it’s stayed at the bottom of any makeup I wanted to try. I was worried it would be pasty, ashy and too drying for my lips. But having tried the duo I take back all of my reservations.

I picked mine up from Sephora online although they’re supposed to launch in-store on Nov.6, 2015.
