Hey, everyone. Welcome back and hello to you new people, too. I’m Courtney, this is Phaedra. Today I’ve got a review and demo for you on the Honest Beauty Falling For You everything makeup palette. This is an eye, lip, and cheek palette, so you get five eye shadows, one cream blush, and two lip products.
I bought this at Ulta. I’m going to go ahead and swatch the eye shadows for you first. I’ve already put Urban Decay’s Primer Potion on the back of my hand. This is the Sigma E47 brush and I’m going to use it with the first color here, which is the matte blackened burgundy.
This is a dark burgundy with a matte finish. It’s a little sheer and I wish it was a little bit easier to blend. I didn’t think it was terrible and you’ll be able to see that in the tutorial. It’s not really bad to blend at all, but it’s definitely not as buttery smooth as I’d like.
I’m going to apply this color right here, which is the chromed rose with this naked brush, it’s an Urban Decay brush. Honest Beauty calls this a taupe with a shimmer. I guess it might be a taupey brown, but to me it looks very much like a brown with a golden shimmer.
I’m going to apply the gold color next, and this is another Urban Decay shadow brush. This is a yellowed gold. I will zoom in close up on these so you can check them out. This is a dusted copper. This is another Urban Decay brush.
That’s a sparkly, coppery shade. Where the yellow gold is more like a metallic gold, this is like a metallic with copper sparkles. The last color we have is smoked aubergine. Honest Beauty says this is a blackened eggplant with shimmer.
I really feel like it looks like a soft black with subtle purple shimmer. I’m going to show you all five of those colors on the back of my hand. You can see how pretty they are. I’m going to show you the blush.
It’s a soft pink. This is the lighter of the two lipsticks. It’s like a dusty rose color. This is the darker of the two lipsticks. It’s a blackened maroon shade. I’m going to be honest with you, in a palette I want it to be all power products.
I don’t really like mixing creams and powders because I feel like you’re going to end up with the colors mingling when you shut the palette. Because these colors don’t have much, if any, fallout … I did have a little bit of fallout when I used this color on my eye.
I feel like it’s not as bad as some palettes, but when it comes to ease of use, especially with a dark color like this, you absolutely need a lip brush to apply this color. I like the color, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t really like this formatting for it.
I do feel it’s okay for softer colors like this that you can just apply with your fingertip for a wash or a hint of color because it’s not so hard to get it to apply easily. The cream blush is actually pretty easy to apply.
I think it’s a very flattering color on my skin tone. The reason I bought this palette is because when I saw it it really did immediately scream “fall.” Here in Florida right now, it’s ninety-two degrees.
I’m trying to pretend like it’s fall, but it’s not. It is so hot. Still so, so hot. It’s one of the things I dislike about Florida is that we really don’t get a good fall. I love fall. Fall is a great time.
I love pumpkin spice. I love all of the things that go with fall. I kind of wish we had a better fall. I saw this palette and these are the colors, like the burgundy here, this dark sparkly color and the copper, are really the colors that I’ve been gravitating towards recently, so I saw this palette and I went, “This is a perfect fall palette for me because it has this matte burgundy, it has a sparkly burgundy, it has a pretty copper, and I like the gold shade.
I don’t know that I care about the brown.” Maybe I’ll try it and maybe I’ll like it better, but these three colors really sold me on the fact that I needed it. I like the cream blush better than I thought I would, especially because it’s a very flattering soft, neutral shade which works really well with either the soft lip or the bold lip, but I’m not really crazy about the bold lip in this palette just because I don’t find it very easy to apply.
To put this on, if you watch the demo later, you’ll see that I used a lip pencil first and then I went back with a lip brush to apply the lipstick. I normally like to apply lipstick out of a tube or a pencil, so it was okay, but I do like the color a lot.
This palette is $35. As I mentioned, you can pick it up at Ulta. One of the things I thought was really cool about it is that Jessica Alba, who’s the owner of Honest Beauty and Honest Company, teamed up with celebrity makeup artist Daniel Martin to create this palette.
It’s supposed to be a nod towards the ’90s since the ’90s have been making a comeback. Once I saw that, I could completely agree. In the ’90s I wore very dark lipstick. I didn’t really do a lot with eye shadow.
I did like super thick black eyeliner. It was not really … I was not good at makeup. Anyway, but I really do like the colors chosen for the palette. Like these three colors, these three eye shadow colors really speak to me.
I absolutely love the dark lipstick color, just don’t like it in this palette in the sense that I don’t find it easy to use. Anyway, I’m going to go ahead and jump into the tutorial and talk to you a little bit more about it afterwards.
Start by applying eye shadow primer. I put Urban Decay’s original primer potion and I let it dry. I feel like most people don’t mention that, but when you put on eye shadow primer you should make sure and let it dry so that you have a nice bare canvas to work with.
I’m taking the color Baby Cakes, which is by Anastasia Beverly Hills and I’m going to use this as a base shade on the brow bone and hood of my eye. I’m using the Sugarpill large eye shadow brush. Basically, this is a pale pink color.
You could use a pale skin tone shade if you prefer. Another dupe for this color would be Urban Decay’s Strange from the Naked3 palette. That’s actually why I bought because I thought it would be a Naked3 palette Strange dupe and it is and I love it.
I’m going to take the black and burgundy color right here, which is a matte shade with the Urban Decay Moon Dust brush. I’m going to sweep with on the lid and then I’m going to blend it out onto the hood of my eye.
I’m actually going to switch to the Iconic eye shadow brush to do the color on my hood. I’m doing the smokey dome shape, which means I’m not going to go past the outer corner of my eye or the inner corner of my eye because I’m trying to make this flattering for hooded eyes.
I want the color to just be visible when I’m looking straight ahead, so just barely visible because it creates the illusion of a crease for hooded eyes. I actually think the Iconic brush is really good for doing this because you can use it to apply a shadow or blend, and it’s a softer brush.
Really you just have to pay attention to the beginning and end of your eye. To further blend this out, I’m going to take the tapered blending brush. Right now I’m doing windshield wiper motions back and forth, but at the outer corner I’m swirling it in little circles.
This is just to soften the edges. Okay, now many of you have asked me to stop and stare in the camera so you can see what it looks like when you’re looking straight forward. When I’m looking straight forward at you, this is what I see.
To me, when I’m looking straight forward … I don’t know if I’m too far down or not. You can just barely see the black and burgundy color up on the hood of my eye. When I close it, you can kind of see it’s a smokey dome.
Next, I’m going to take the smoked aubergine shade and I’m using the same Moon Dust brush. I’m just going to layer this on top on the lid. I just put that on the lid to add more dimension. I’m going to take the detailed smudger brush and I’m going to use the matte color again, the blackened burgundy, on the lower lid.
We’re going to take the coppery shade and this medium eye shadow brush. I’m padding it onto the lid. I’m actually going to spray my brush with a little bit of Urban Decay’s All-Nighter. We’re going to intensify this color on the lid.
I think I’m going to add a little bit more sparkle with Urban Decay’s Space Time. This is a liquid moon dust shade. I’m going to go back over it with the coppery color just to set it in place. I’m going to take Anastasia Buon Fresco with this Iconic eye shadow brush by Urban Decay and just soften the edges of this in the crease so it looks better.
I’m using this as a transitional color. I’m doing gentle windshield wiper motions. I’m going to use the Urban Decay large blending brush to very, very softly blend on the hood. I just want to make sure everything looks smooth.
I’m going to apply the cream blush. This is crushed pink. I’m going to highlight with Urban Decay’s Aura. I’m going to line my lips with Urban Decay’s Blackmail pencil. I’m going to take the garnet shade from the palette.
I do not like applying lipsticks from a palette like this, much like I don’t like cream blushes. Now, for the first time since I had my brows micro-bladed, I’m going to put on some brow gel. This is Glossier’s Boy Brow in Black.
I’m just going to use a tiny little bit to just hold the hairs in place. I’m going to use the red side of Aura over here and the Sigma tapered blending brush to highlight at my inner corner. You know what? I’m actually going to go back with a little bit of Aura, the highlighter.
This is my first time applying highlighter since I got my brows done. I’m going to zoom in so you can see the finished eye look. I promise there will be no trying to make love to the camera with my eyes.
Here’s my finished look. Okay, I hope that you enjoyed my fall tutorial that I created mostly using the Honest Beauty Falling For You palette. I really had fun putting this look together. I think it’s really pretty, obviously, or I wouldn’t have done it.
I’m really, really into this coppery shade on the lid and I love the burgundy for the crease. I just want to wear the burgundy all the time. Yes, the dark lips, holy crap. I love dark lips. I’m feeling these colors.
I love this. I think it’s a great … What I think is great about it is that you’re not overwhelmed with twenty or thirty colors in a palette. You just have five shades and you can get a lot of different combinations with the five shades that I think are flattering.
Yes, for me, because I have hooded eyes, I had to use other colors with this palette. I used a pale pink beige shade and then I did use a light mauve color as a transitional color. I feel like it works really well with this palette.
I’m a fan of Honest Beauty’s eye shadows as you know, or maybe you don’t know. I’ll put a link in case you don’t. I went out and I bought a couple of the trios, fell in love, bought all the rest of the trios and the other palette that Honest Beauty release.
I have swatches of all of them up on my blog and I’ve reviewed them all. I really like the colors. I feel like they’re very nicely pigmented and they are definitely more in that organic, clean beauty category.
If you are really looking for products like that, I think you should check out Honest Beauty because I think they do a great job with that. As far as I’m aware, the products are all made in the USA, so that’s another thing too if you care about buying products that are made here.
I know for me personally, even though I love this color, I would prefer it to be in a lipstick format or a lip pencil format rather than in this little palette because I just … It’s hard to apply dark colors without having a lip brush and a lip pencil just to get them just right.
It bugs me, but aside from that I love the colors in this palette. I think if you’re looking for a really easy palette to create fall looks with, you can do it with this because you have this great gold.
You have the copper, which I think is outstanding. I really love how the copper works with my blue-green eyes. You have the burgundy, obviously, that I love so much. Anyway, what do you think of the Honest Beauty Falling For You palette? Please be sure to let me know in the comments below.
