Meet Adaleta of Adaatude!

Friday, May 06, 2016

Wrapping up this week's guest posts, today I have Adaleta of Adaatude! She is one of my favorite beauty bloggers and Youtubers to follow. (Her travel diaries are some of my favorites to watch!) She always has great tips and reviews of brands, so I am very excited to have her posting for me today!

To say I have a makeup addiction is definitely an understatement. Along with the beauty, I have a serious itch for travel, fashion anything else life throws at me. If you visit my blog, you'll find a lot of reviews and lifestyle posts. Today on Darcy's blog, I'm sharing my favorite beauty items

Let's kick this off properly by discussing MAC eyeshadows. Retailing at $16 per shadow, these are creamy, blendable, long-lasting and just utterly beautiful. They are excellent to have in your beauty collection whether you're a beginner or a pro makeup artist. The quality is incredible. How many are in your collection? I am guilty of hoarding quite a few of these (sshhhh, don't tell my boyfriend!)

At this stage in my beauty blogging career, I've tried a number of beauty subscription boxes. I've gone through Ipsy and Birchbox and they didn't really appeal to me after a year. Those are the two most popular ones and I think it's because they're cost effective and have some big names supporting the marketing. However, I found that Glossybox was much more in tune with my brand and interests. I wrote an entire review breaking out why I prefer Glossybox, so if you'd like to take a peek make sure to read more here. I would recommend that if you're even interested in investing in a beauty subscription box, just skip the noise and sign up with Glossybox.

Because I travel so much, I tend to pick up makeup as a "souvenir" on my trips. When we went to Berlin, I found an entire Kiko Milano store. It was a total dream come true because Kiko is not the most well known brand in the US and it's quite difficult for me to get my hands on it in person.  Their eyeshadows are drugstore priced (just a tad bit more than your standard Maybelline shadow) but the creaminess, texture and longevity of these is honestly mind-blowing. If you have a chance to get one of these textured shadows, do not pass up the opportunity!

Clinique recently released their Chubby Stick in the foundation form. Not only is that an amazing foundation, but their entire chubby collection is on point. I did a review of the entire collection here. I use the blushes, eyeshadows, lip pencils, mascara and foundation on a regular basis. The highlighter and contour sticks are also top notch. My favorite part is that they're so easy to throw in my purse and take with me on the go. Oh forgot to apply my lip color? I can just take the lip pencil with me and apply on the road. It's so easy!

I have been raving about the L'Oreal Infallible Pro Matte foundation for over a year, because I truly believe it is the best foundation I have ever tried. It's cost-effective, ideal for oilier skin types and just blends beautifully into the skin. However, the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation has taken the cake for the best new foundation in my life. I have not picked up the L'Oreal foundation in weeks and I'm so impressed with every aspect of this foundation. It is absolute perfection and worth every penny of its luxurious price tag!

Finally, I have to touch on my absolute favorite makeup brand as of late. Not only do they carry a wonderful message about how every single human is beautiful, but their products are second to none. I love trying all of their new makeup and repurchasing their existing line too. If you haven't tried anything from IT Cosmetics I cannot recommend this enough. What beauty have you been loving lately?

    1. It's how I learned to "get away" with buying more makeup than really necessary ;) I think it's all necessary. It's market research & I get to review it, but evidently my accountant and boyfriend don't agree with that logic haha! xx adaatude.com

    1. Hahah your comment made me laugh. "She had me at MAC eyeshadows" YAS girl, you have great taste. MAC eyeshadows are amazing. Did you know that MAC spends little to no money on marketing? You've never seen a commercial or real advertisement (video, ads, etc.) from them? ...and they still manage to be the number one cosmetic brand. They've definitely got it made! xx adaatude.com

    1. Thanks for leaving the kind comment as that is really nice of you! Makeup heaven is right ;) I house so many products because so many get sent to me, but I've decided to do lots of giveaways so I can share the makeup with everyone else because it would be unrealistic to use all the makeup. I've only got one face! xx adaatude.com

  7. I adore Mac eye shadows. I wear "dazzlelight" almost every day of life because it's a nice neutral color to brighten your eyes up for work or everyday wear.

    1. Thanks so much for commenting & nice to meet you too! I hope you come over and join me on my blog since the makeup obsession is VERY real. I'm glad I intrigued you with Glossybox as it's definitely more of a niche box. I think most people have heard of Birchbox or Ipsy since those are heavily marketed in the YouTuber and beauty community, but I wanted to try some other boxes so I took the chance and love Glossybox!! xx adaatude.com

    1. Most people have heard of Ipsy or Birchbox since I believe those are the most marketed & they're the most affordable. Glossybox is a bit more niche, but I'm glad you're intrigued ;) xx adaatude.com
