NEW BRAND ALERT! Again!! We are so excited to write about a brand new makeup brand, launched by Manny MUA! The first release by Lunar Beauty is their Life’s A Drag Eyeshadow Palette on Saturday, 6.02! The palette features 14 shades with 6 mattes, 2 shimmers and 6 bright colorful shades. The palette also includes a mirror and a dual ended brush, all for $45.
We FREAKED OUT when we heard Manny was launching a makeup brand! Even though it’s kind of played out, we loved when YouTubers follow their dreams and capitalize on their reach and influence! It’s a no-brainer that the first launch is an eyeshadow palette – duh, right? Laura Lee did the same thing. We aren’t mad about that! But we were a little little bit disappointed with the palette. First of all, I did NOT expect a drag-themed palette from Manny for some reason. Is it just me or does that kind of seem to not totally fit his brand? I mean, obv he’s gay but I just don’t think DRAG when I think MannyMUA, you know? Also, there is something about the color scheme that is throwing me off a bit. It’s hard to put my finger on it, though. Maybe it’s the layout? Like, on side is totally kinda boring and natural and then the stark contrast of all of the bright shades on the other side? But then again, maybe it makes perfect sense to lay it out that way? I’m just not sure it all “goes” ya know? And I’m also not sure how much use I would get out of this, either. I mean, it looks super pigmented and I bet the formula is gonna be bomb because duh but…. I’m just not sure. I do think the price is fair, though! That is a super positive note, for sure. I think I’ll have a better feel for it once I see some tutorials with it. What do you think of this bad boy??
