New LightingI'm using new lighting in this video! It was my first time using it so I'll be tweaking it here and there but I'm so happy with it so far!
I have my camera and mic set up in the middle of a ring light, with two led panels on the sides.
Shimmer highlights less bitty and more glowy
Matte highlights more smooth, and glide over other products
Removable pans to refill or change shades (€4.50 each)
Seemingly more long lasting
More expensive of the two at €25.25 (but still very affordable!)
Larger in size for travelling/storage
My preferred palette, of the two. For those interested in the quality difference, I would recommend this one.
Cheaper of the two at €11.21 (exc. shipping)
Smaller in size for travelling/storage
Contour shades have nice quality and blend-ability
Shimmer highlights more bitty.
Matte highlights less smooth, and affect products underneath.
Pans are non-changeable
Seemingly not as long lasting
It is not a dupe but it would be a nice alternative for someone who is:
- On a budget
- Starting to experiment with contour & highlighting
- More interested in the contouring shades
- Or looking for contour & highlight palette for travelling/"on-the-go".
