Toofaced white chocolate chip palette dupe

Hello hello, on this chilly good friday, I'm coming to you with a little first impressions, swatchy swatch and a dupe alert of the Toofaced eye shadow palette which is the much talked about, the white chocolate chip palette, I won this from bright somethings on instagram this week which I was super excited about, as you can imagine. I have a few palettes from toofaced now, so I was happy to add this to the little collection.
so my comparison dupe alert is the maybelline rose nudes palette and its because there are quite alot of similar shades in the palette and when swatched they do look, very similar. When on sale the maybelline can be found for $10 it does however retail for approx $25 aus full priced but it is often on sale.
Its a very light and airy sort of palette but it is pigmented and buttery smooth, not chalky or hard to blend out. None of the shades are patchy and they wear on my eye lides really well and and the shimmer shades are really pretty.
These are swatches of both palettes toofaced being the top swatches and maybelline being the bottom swatch

But the toofaced palette is what I am most excited about and the shades include are named on the back as followed.
Pearl Candy
Rasberry Rose which is a reproduce as it is re brought out from the toofaced chocolate shop eye shadow palette which I thougbt was interesting.
Gult free
Cake batter
Cookie Dough another reproduce from the toofaced joy to the girls eye shadow palette
Sugared raisin another reproduce from the toofaced joy to the girls eye shadow palette
Black sugar

The palettes here are both similar in size, but the maybelline is obviously bigger, with 12 shades and the toofaced one being smaller with 11 but much smaller pans. Yes you are getting higher quality shadows but I do find the maybelline palette is more pigmented in this instance. But its all in personal preference and what you are looking for in a palette..
So last year there was all this drama with the toofaced palette and I'm glad I live in Australia because I don't think there was such drama when it was released, But I could be mistaken as I do live with my head in the sand quite a bit.
so the shades are just as pastel inspired as the toofaced and shimmery themed in my opinion and I really do think you could pull off the exact same eye looks within the same eyeshadow palettes.

so the maybelline palette retails full price here in Australia for $25 but can often be found on sale for $10 and the toofaced palette is $37 here in Australia.

What do you think of this dupe comparison of mine?

Happy Easter!

Kmart makeup dupe alert bys berries palette is it a dupe for the Anastasia beverly hills Renaissance palette

 Hello hello my lovelies, long time no see, I am sorry for that however school and sickness have taken over but I am back with a bang because I have a brand new palette with swatches and a first impressions to show to you! I also have a video link at the end to my youtube channel if you want to see live swatches as well. I wen't and picked up the much raved about Bys berries palette from kmart over the weekend and let me tell you, everyone is talking about it across facebook, twitter, youtube and instagram. I hunted it down, because I wen't to not one, but three kmarts to find this palette and you will find out if I find it worth while or not. And no I don't own the abh palette but it is said to be a very good, affordable dupe for it though.

you can purchase the bys berries palette online here buy it online

 So pricepoint is $16 at Kmart $20 at bys website and other places that you are able to buy bys, also side note I heard on the grapevine that bys is heading down the cruelty free path, which I find really interesting. So I love the fact that all the shades are named within the pan as well as on the back of the tin. the tin itself is a little flimsy as one of the lightest shades did fall out, however I slipped it right back on in, and its been fine, ever since. All the shades are pigmented, most are buttery smooth, two are a little chalky and they are the two plumy shades however they are still very workable and pigmented.

 I do love that its all housed in a neat little, embossed tin that says berries in rose gold on the front. You get the standard 12 eye shadows, which I think is quite fair for the quality and the standard that bys is now bringing to the game. It does come with two dual ended applicators that I wouldn't be using. But it also does feature a very hd mirror which I was most impressed for drugstore packaging from kmart

So I think for makeup from bys and from kmart its actually a decent palette and worth $16! I love the shades, and its very on trend at the moment. They are pigmented and seem to blend out well as I did a brush test as well.
Will you be buying this palette?
