I usually have Manicure Monday on Mondays but unfortunately, I haven't wore polishes in awhile. It's not intentional. I just haven't had the time to sit and paint my nails. Anyways in June, I went to PHAMExpo LA 2016 and was invited to the after party hosted by PHAMExpo and BeBella Cosmetics.

Here are the items that I got from BeBella either in a goody bag or laid on tables. For this post, I will review the Glow Dust Palette on the left.

Thoughts: At the after party, a lot of people opened up their goody bag and they received an eyeshadow palette. I just assumed I got an eyeshadow palette as well. When I opened up my goody bag at home, I was shocked to receive a highlighter palette. Actually, I was pretty stoke!
Here's how the palette looks when I take it out of the packaging.
Here's the inside of the Glow Dust Palette.
Here's a closer look at the six highlighter and a bronzer.
Here's a closer look at one of the highlighters. This is the first one on the left on the bottom row.

Here's how the Glow Dust Palette look on me. I have the bronzer, top middle, on the bone structure of my cheeks, jawline, and chin to hide my double. Then I have the highlighter, bottom left, on the tops of my cheeks, bone line and tip of my nose, and cupid's bow.
Here's an overall look. I have Kiko Color Fever Eyeshadow Palette in Unexpected Rosy Taupe on the eyes, Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush in Satisfy on the cheeks, and L'Oreal La Palette Lip in Nude on the lips.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's no noticeable scent whatsoever. I just double checked and sniffed the palette, and there's none. Secondly, the packaging reminds me of a lot of palettes that are in the market like Crown Brush 88 Color Warm Eyeshadow Palette. They're simple with black, matte packaging. With that said, I see a lot of fingerprint marks. I'm not a fan of that. I guess I'm kind of a clean freak when it comes to beauty. Third, the powder is soft. I wouldn't say buttery soft but soft on the skin. You can feel tiny bumps while you grab with your fingers, but it feels nice on the skin or at least it does for me. It's also compacted but you do have to be careful how you pick it up. If you pick it up with a brush, there is slight loose powder all over the palette. I don't know if it's my brush but I noticed less pigmentation when I use a brush. I highly recommend using this palette with your fingers except the bronzer. I don't know if it has to do with the different textures; bronzer is matte whereas all the highlighters are shimmery. The brush picks up the bronzer and you can see it easily on the skin. The highlighter, on the other hand, takes some effort with the brush. I would have to layer it several times for it to show on my in-between light to medium skin. Even layering, the highlighters all look the same on my skin. I highly recommend using your fingers. It's amazing how much your finger picks up the pigmentation. It's opaque, shiny, and you can tell the color differences between the highlighters. Speaking of colors, the bronzer is a gorgeous color and will show up on a lot of skin. I'm not a big fan of shiny, orange bronzer. For that reason, I like the color of this bronzer. It's more on the grayish-tone but it looks good on the skin. Lastly, it lasts all day on me. With that said, I still recommend this for all skin types. It might last longer on me since I have dry skin. It also doesn't turn greasy on me at the end of the day.

Pros:
* No scent whatsoever.
* Simple, black matte packaging.
* Soft consistency.
* Compacted.
* Recommend using your fingers except for the bronzer.
* Matte, grayish brown bronzer.
* Multiple, shimmery color highlighters.
* Opaque.
* Lasts all day without fading.
* Does not turn greasy throughout the day.
* Cruelty-free.

Cons:
* Hard to find in stores.
* Lots of fingerprint marks.
* Slight loose powder.

Would repurchase: Yes.
