Smashbox SHAPEMATTERS Palette Review, Photos & Swatches

Smashbox SHAPEMATTERS Palette Review and Swatches | Vicky B. TV

Happy September my loves! I am so excited to be reviewing the new Smashbox SHAPEMATTERS palette for you guys. I got this palette for my birthday last month and I have so many positive things to say about it.

The reason I wanted this palette was because it wasn’t just an eyeshadow palette, it was a complete kit 3-in-1 palette that comes with contouring powders including a highlighting powder, eyebrow powders and wax, as well as nine eyeshadows. The palette also includes a double-ended brush for your eyes and Get The Look cards which feature T-link technology that when scanned with your phone, it will activate how-to videos. Pretty awesome, right?!


DIY Gold Personalized Pencils

Gold Personalized Pencils

It’s been a few weeks since I posted a new blog post but I am back with a vengeance. Those of you who read my blog regularly or read my About page know that I also a co-founder of a startup so it can get pretty hectic. It’s almost back-to-school time and even if you’re not going back-to-school, my newest DIY post can be used to glam up your desk at the office.

When I was younger, one of my favourite things about back-to-school was heading to the store to buy new school supplies (a girl could never have enough sparkly pens and pencils). I thought, how fun would it be to take boring HB 2 pencils and glam them up?! In addition, why not empower yourself with some encouraging messages to get you through the day.

These pencils are so easy to make and they’re super pretty, so grab your HB 2 pencils and some spray paint and let’s get painting!

In addition, find out how you can substitute shaving gel with olive oil for the smoothest legs ever!


How to Remove Spray Paint From Skin

How to Remove Spray Paint From Skin | Vicky B. TV

I’ve been on a huge spray painting kick lately and when I recently did my gold makeup brush holder tutorial (you check it out here), I didn’t have any gloves and got spray paint all over my hands.

Though the gold colour looked amazing on my nails (I need to find a gold nail polish that looks exactly like that), I had to figure out a way to remove the spray paint off of my hands without using harsh stripping agents.
