Urban Decay Holographic Highlighters Review: NBB Reviews

No Bull Beauty Reviews  
Taking a Ride On The Disco Train
with 
Urban Decay's Holographic Highlighters
A Doll Talks Blog ReCap
by Emily Doll
Hello my pretties, and welcome back to another finale recap on Doll Talks with No Bull Beauty Reviews. This recap is going to talk about some finale thoughts on the two most recent highlighters I tested out from Urban Decay Cosmetics. 

Disco Queen!
I received a goodie box from my friends at Urban Decay  with two pretty new babies inside to test out on No Bull Beauty. Right away I had excitement taking over when I pulled the retro disco themed packaging out of its protective box. Inside that box were two sparkly little babies just waiting to make me glow! 

The packaging was a fun silver holo color that represented the products well. I checked out the Disco Queen Holographic Highlight Powder first part of this because I cant help myself around a good powder highlight. I would have said $29 dollars was a little on the high side, until I put this on my face. Also in a 0.31oz pan you are getting a good amount of product. Disco Queen is the powder part of this combo and at first looks I was worried would have me looking like I took a style tip from Barney! But have no fear, thankfully that was not the case. Although very purple looking in color this highlight is actually pretty sheer at first. Its a lavender powder base with a blue shift glitter in it. Giving you a very neon ethereal like glow applied. The second side of this perfect holo pair is the cream highlighting stick known as the Disco Stick.
This Disco Stick is a cream holographic highlighting stick, and sitting at $26 bucks. This really is a pretty stick highlighter but is a little on the dry side. It didn't go down as smooth as I wanted but does dry down to a soft finish that is comfy to wear. Its a very iridescent sheen that really glows bright with its multidimensional blue shift. I can see this working really well as a body highlighter this summer too!

So with both products in my hands I decided to double them up and get the most out of my Disco Queen team. I applied the Disco Stick first on my cheek bones,brow bones, nose, I even used my finger to apply it to my eyelids. I then took the Disco Queen Powder Highlighter and applied it over the Disco Stick. It gave me the most other worldly glow y'all!!
I really love the outcome of these two products both alone but even more so when used together. Its such a bright fun highlight that really makes you feel like a Disco Queen. It was like Coachella on my face! I probably wouldn't wear these two on a daily basis because they are a more bright fun colorful highlight, I really love that I can now have this epic of highlight thanks to these two products.



 These two limited edition products really stepped up their holo game and gave the glow of their lives! Ok, but in all honestly, I think they are great. I think they could have been better and maybe a little smoother. They both ran a little dry in texture but did apply well in general. I loved the overall look and although probably wouldn't recommend them for their price, they really do give you a beautiful glow. 
Its a great shade for all skin tones and gives you  fun festival like highlight to rock on days that you just need a little extra groove in your game. These babies are both on sale at sephora.com at the moment and you should totally scoop them up!

BB Queen Beauty Blender MEGA Review Blog ReCap

Long Live The BB Queen! 
No Bull Beauty Special MEGA Review
Doll Talks Blog ReCap
with Emily Doll


I recently had one of the most exciting things to happen to me to date! I arrived home after picking up my youngest son from PreK, only to find the most beautiful bright pink box waiting for me. Beauty Blender and the influencer team I work with Influenster, sent me a massive box of the limited edition BB Queen Beauty Blenders as well as their amazing new Keep It Clean cleaning mitt. This was crazy to open as you can imagine because it was like opening a treasure chest! I quickly ran to my room to film a first reaction video and share the experience with all of you my friends! 

  What I received from Beauty Blender & Influenster was the Original Beauty Blender sponge in limited edition Beauty Queen packaging which runs for $20.00. This is a beauty sponge made with non latex foam that is made out of  an Aqua Activated material that keeps your product from absorbing deep into your sponge and more on the surface for better application and saving you product! It is the perfect egg shape to fit in all the places you need to have a perfect foundation application or contour blend out! There are no harsh edges or seams to mess with your makeup routine. Once wet, it expands to twice its size for no bull blending. Ha! See what I did there. So basically we have a beauty sponge, much like what your mom used but 100 % better in every way. Not only does this sponge apply makeup the way it claims, but it fits your life. It helps save you product which helps save you money, and it is washable and reusable for up to 3 months before needing to be replaced. That leads me to my next product...


Along with the beauty blenders I was also sent the best way to keep them clean. The BeautyBlender Keep It Clean kit is a simple way to keep your blenders in tip top shape and lasting their full 3 month life span. BeautyBlender put together this cleaning kit to help you get the most out of your sponges. This kit also runs for $20 dollars on most sites and comes with the textures cleaning mitt, a mini BlenderCleanser solid, and sample of BlenderCleanser liquid. I have some pros and cons about this one, and I wouldn't be No Bull Beauty if I wasn't fully honest. The Keep It Clean mitt does what it says, it cleans your beauty blenders with no problem. I show in my recent YouTube review video for the Beauty Blenders in the clip where I test out my own mitt, that it does clean the sponge well. I tested it with the liquid cleanser they sent, and wore it on my hand as shown but I did struggle with keeping it on my hand once wet and soapy. I have very small hands so it might just be a size issue, but it was harder to clean with the slippery mitt on. Once complete, I had what I came for, a clean sponge!!! Where the mitt did its job I just don't see it being realistic in my beauty routine. I much preferred their full size Solid BenderCleanser, which is $16 dollars and comes in a 1oz size with a much smaller palm size textured rubber cleansing matt,   that I felt not only was easier for me to use, but I felt it cleaned my sponge faster and better. I think the Keep It Clean Mitt is awesome just not needed for me. I did try to use the BeautyBlender brand cleaners on my cheaper beauty sponges and not only could it not fully clean them due to how deep the product was in the sponge, it ripped!!



Ultimately after taking the special fancy limited edition BB Queen packaging off I was reviewing the Original Beauty Blender. I have to say, I am extremely happy with my results. Not only does the original Beauty Blender do its job, it does it the best! Most may think its just another beauty sponge with a huge price tag, well you are wrong just like I was! You really are getting way more for your money with the original and not just a larger chunk of a cheap beauty sponge because that is exactly what the knock off blenders from the drug store are, just bigger versions of the cheap rip off sponges. You are getting the best makeup application a beauty sponge can give you as well as saving money on product because this sponge isn't a thief! and with the 3 month life span when you clean your blenders properly, you are also saving money on replacement sponge that you now have to buy less of! All in all I would have to say it is totally worth the few extra bucks to get the original Beauty Blender because it really is worth the money. Spend more now and save a lot later. I love that in a beauty product! 
For No Bull Beauty Reviews, this is a knock out of the park and Beauty Blender will forever have a home in my beauty arsenal.
