Oh my goodness guys! You have no idea how excited I am for this review! I recently received an amazing PR package from MAC Cosmetics and it included one of Patrick Starrr's new kits for the Floral Realness collection. Patrick Starrr came out with a collection with MAC a few months back, which you can see my review here if you wanted to check it out. But this new collection is literally so perfect for Spring and it is probably one of the best packaging that MAC has created to this day. I love the pink packaging with the floral design. It is literally perfection.

With this collection you can choose from two different kits. The first kit is Me So Fleek and it comes with a lipstick, lip gloss, eyeshadow quad and a face powder duo. The second kit which is the one I am reviewing is called Me So Chic, which it also comes with the same products as Me So Fleek, but just in different shades.

Each kit will retail for $49.50 which is honestly such an amazing deal for everything you get. I am going to start with the eyeshadow quad first and work our way through the other products. I did go a little photo happy, so this post is going to contain tons of photos!

So the first thing we are going to talk about is the eyeshadow quad. This palette is called Stay With Me. The first eyeshadow is called Daddystarrr which is a muted baby pink with pearl and has a matte finish. Next is Yesss which is a mid-tone dust violet that is a VLXP finish. Next is Queen Patrick which is a bright purple with a frost finish. Lastly is Bon Nuit which is a black purple with a matte finish.

The quailty of the shadows are just like normal MAC shadows, AMAZING. They all had really good pigment. I did find Bon Nuit to have a more drier texture, but still had amazing pigmentation.

Next up is the blush duo. This one is in the shade I'm Not Blushing. I seriously love this blush duo. I am a huge fan of MAC blushes so I was super excited to see that this duo has more natural tones. The two shades in the duo are: Pure Peach (satin finish) and Capri Bronze (matte finish). The blushes are also really good quailty and have amazing pigmentation. They are super easy to blend as well. 

Lastly we have the lip products! This set comes with a lipglass in the shade Mamastarrr Kiss which is a sheer nude with pearl. It is super pretty and looks amazing on top of the lipstick in this collection. The lipstick is in the shade Sweet Mamastarrr and its a mid tone neutral pink with a amplified finish. This has got to be one of my new favorite lipstick shades. It is so beautiful and I can see myself wearing it everyday. 

This collection is literally perfection. Also, it is such a great deal for everything you get! This collection will be available April 19th, 2018. Let me know in the comments if you are going to be up anything from this collection! I would love to hear your thoughts. 

Urban Decay Backtalk Palette Review & Swatches

This post and blog contains affiliated links and ads which means I may receive a tiny portion for any click or purchase. These products were sent to me as PR from Urban Decay. All opinions are 100% my own. 

Hi guys, welcome back to my blog! I have another review for you guys today! I have so many reviews I need to get up so the next couple of weeks will probably be strictly reviews for you! For today's review, I was super excited to have received this palette from Urban Decay. It is the new Backtalk Palette that comes with eyeshadows and blushes/highlighters. When I first started seeing photos of this palette I was in love. But sadly after testing it out for a few days, I was not impressed. I really wanted to love this palette but most of the shades are misses. 

The really cool thing about this palette is that there is a mirror in the middle that helps keep the shadows from rubbing against the blushes/highlighters. And when you have the palette out, you can actually take the mirror out! I thought that was a super cool touch to the palette. 

Let's go over the blushes/highlighters first. This palette includes 4 different shades. 
  • Party Foul (light pink-nude shimmer)
  • Low Key (pink-peach)
  • Double Take (rich mauve with slight shimmer)
  • Cheap Shot (medium pink-nude)
The lightest colors did not have much pigmentation. I found the texture to be a little drying and it they are super hard to blend out. The darker shades applied a little bit better but the pigmentation just wasn't there. I was hoping I was going to at least love one of the shades but unfortunately the quailty of the product just wasn't great. 

Next we will move onto the shadows. There is 8 different shades. The shadows performed a little bit better then the blushes/highlighters. 
  • 3 Sheets (pale pink-nude matte)
  • Bare (light pinky-peach satin)
  • Curve (metallic rose shimmer with silver micro glitter)
  • Attitude (metallic red-copper)
  • Backtalk (soft rosy mauve matte)
  • WTF (reddish brown matte)
  • Shade (deep fuchsia satin)  
  • 180 (metallic brown-red)
The shadows still were not the greatest quailty compared to typical Urban Decay shadows. I thought the mattes performed really well but the satins and metallic shades didn't perform well. Bare and Curve almost look like the same shade so there isn't too much difference between the two. 

I was just so unimpressed which is sad because I was really looking forward to this palette. I would love to hear your thoughts on this palette, so let me know in the comments what you think.

This palette retails for $46.00 and can be bought at www.sephora.com
