Review of Colourpop x Malibu Barbie Palette

 Hey guys! Woo! It's been a minute. Teaching during a pandemic really takes up all your free time and I've neglected my time here. But, it's summer and its time to get back to reviewing, writing, and sharing. Thanks so much for reading the post, and today we are talking about the new Barbie Malibu eyeshadow palette that released with the very popular fast-makeup brand Colourpop. Are you interested in this palette and wondering about the quality? Then just keep on reading! 1. Packaging and Presentation This palette is absolutely beautiful. Let's just admit that now. The packaging is pink with pops of blue, yellow, and orange. It definitely represents that true Malibu feel. The artwork on the palette is amazing as usual when it comes to Colourpop. If you are a Barbie fan, I think you will be satisfied with the overall design of the palette. The palette itself is cardboard packaging, which in my opinion, is the best type of packaging from Colourpop, and I prefer it over th

Book! - Let's talk about books and reading 2021

 Hey everyone! It's been awhile since my last blog post.... But here I am again!  So today I'm going to be listing off some good and not so good books I've been reading so far into 2021. If you're interested, just keep on reading  Some books I've read so far this year worth missing: Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire    *** - 3 stars out of 5 The most recent book I have finished, this book explores what happens to those students who find doorways to other worlds, and what really happens when they come back to the "real" world. A very interesting concept, I enjoyed most of the characters and the writing, but felt the story to be a bit incomplete, but still think it's worth checking out, which is why it gets a 3 out of 5 rating.  The Maze Runner series - The Maze Runner, The Scorch Trails, and The Death Cure by James Dashner **** 4 stars out of 5 I'm glad I read this series this year. I finished all three books in February and I really enjoyed t

Teaching During A World-Wide Pandemic

Hello! So today I just wanted to come on here and write about how teaching is going so far, as I've been back to work for a few weeks now and teaching digitally, as well as in-person. Firstly, let me give some background. At my particular school and in my particular county we were expected to be all digital this year, but that quickly changed when it was announced that students could have the option to come back into the school. Of course, this arose to many different feels, opinions, fears, and worries from teachers and parents alike. In the end, at my school, our students have the option to learn digitally or to come in-person and we have about a 50/50 split as of right now.  My position is also uniquely different at the elementary level since I teach Spanish and it's a connection class. So, I teach every student in the school. I a group of classes grades K-5 for 45 minutes for a week, and them they rotate and I see the next group. As you can imagine, that's even scarier

Review of Colourpop Garden Variety Palette

Many makeup brands have been going crazy with so many new makeup release and today I'm giving my quick opinion on the newish Colourpop Garden Variety palette. Since this palette released a few weeks ago, Colourpop has already released two other collections, so I'm a little behind, but I wanted to share my opinion on the Garden Variety palette since I actually bought this palette myself and wanted to review it. So let's get into my opinion and quick review: First some.... Basic Information: Price - $20 Pans - 15 eyeshadows Formulas - mattes, metallics, and Colourpop's super shock formula Net Weight - 17g (.6 oz) Shades: neutrals, oranges, corals, golds, purples, greens, and browns My Opinion: Quality - The quality is the usual quality for Colourpop. Colourpop is one of my favorite brands and has a very good formula. On top of being affordable, they also have a very good formula. This palette is no exception, it has a good formula and I had no issues blending the shadows.

Let's talk new makeup - Are these new makeup releases worth buying?

Hey guys! So there is some new makeup releases coming out and being released and I have to say I'm excited to check out some of these products. If you'd like to hear my opinion on these new releases, well just keep on reading! Let's jump right in! 1. This collection that just came out from Looxi beauty looks amazing. The brand is a smaller indie brand that just came out with their Butterfly kisses collection. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to pick up anything but I was super interested in this release. I've definitely have been interested in Indie brands and single duochrome and multichrome shades. This collection had 10 different beautiful shades and they are all sold out. I hope they restock soon.  Check out the site here -->   https://www.looxibeauty.com/collections/butterfly-kisses 2.  This new palette looks amazing from Coloured Raine. I love the vibrant, colorful shades. I also love that they are giving two options for the palette. Super cute! 3. This new col

New Elf Retro Paradise Palette

https://youtu.be/u_jJ8pMhE88 Hi guys coming on here today to talk about the new elf retro paradise eyeshadow palette that just came out recently. I did a review for this pallet on my YouTube channel (@Erin Hudson), and I did enjoy it but I think that the formula leaves a little bit to be desired. Well I did get a nice look I felt that the eyeshadows could be a bit more pigmented and easier to blend together but overall for $15 this palette is not bad. Again this pallet is $14.99 and is available at target as well as on the elf website.  Did you pick up this palette and if yes, what do you think? Leave your comments below! Check out the look I created on my YouTube channel by click the link or video at the top.  Thanks
