I think by now, you guys know that highlighter is an ESSENTIAL part of my makeup arsenal. I want to shine bright like a diamond! My KVD Alchemy palette is almost at its end, and I decided to order a new one awhile back. I mean, this was like during the fall. I'm seriously behind on my posting; school and work take up like all of my time, BUT, better late than never.
I want to say this: I ordered this during "sweater weather" season, and I was super excited to use it during the fall. But I didn't receive it until winter. I understand and respect that Tooth & Nail is a small company. I love small companies, and this is like my 3rd order from them I think. But the shipping with this was a mess. It took literally almost 2 months for me to receive this palette. TWO MONTHS! I kept sending emails, asking when it was going to be sent, and I was told I was in queue to have it shipped that week, a week goes by, nothing. Then, I sent another email and asked if they would refund my shipping because it's been over a month, and I was guaranteed it would be shipped at a faster rate at no additional cost that day, and nothing. The last email I sent, I didn't hear anything back until like a few days when I finally received a tracking number. So, to be honest, all of that left a bad taste in my mouth. If they were out of stock or something, then just say that. Don't promise me that it's going to be sent, but it's not. I wasn't happy about it, like at all. By the time I received it, it was no longer sweater weather, but jacket and scarves weather. You guys know how important customer service is to me. For the most part, every person that emailed me back was nice, but really I was lied to on two separate occasions. NOT COOL. But, at this point, I have it and I'm using it.
In this photo above, I used Hayride Heaven. The color is so pretty. All four highlights scream fall; crisp leaves, fluffy sweaters, a cool breeze. They're buildable, so you can shine a little bright or bright like a nightlight. Sweater Weather is my favorite; I love all the different shades in it. The white/silver would be too much without the multicolors layered inside.
A pleasant surprise was that the palette smells like. toasted marshmallows! I constantly sniffing it, and the scent lingers for a bit after you put it on, which is nice. The highlighter lasts, and also, makes a nice eyeshadow, since it's buildable. It's nice to put some underneath your eyebrows (only half my face was on at this point), because it give a little shine. And, a dab in the inner corner of your eye. Adding some white eyeliner first, then a pat of this to shine, will make you look more awake. Since my two cats have become LUNATICS between 3am-5am and they wake me up every single night, I look tired on a constant basis. Add that to the fact that I actually am tired on a daily basis thanks to my Hashimoto's, I look like the living dead most days. Thank you makeup!
I really appreciate that all of their makeup is vegan, cruelty free, and talc free. They make products for the spooky girl in me, and I love that. I want more things, but I'm chilling on spending because we're saving for a house. And, for $25, you get a quality palette that will last. There is some excess when applying it, so it can be a bit wasteful if you're not careful. They have great eye shadows too, since I have their Nightmare Before Christmas palette, but where they shine the brightest (pun intended) is with their highlighters. They have a bunch something for everyone, so check them out. But, don't expect to receive your product in a timely fashion. I might have just had a bad stroke of luck, but, if I order again, I won't hold my breath.
