Have you ever browsed Youtube then find yourself on a random video and didn't understand how you got there? Yea, that's me. ALL THE TIME. Which leads me to City Color Cosmetics - an affordable brand that's available only online. Prices range from $5-25USD. I came across a video of someone stating that this was a good dupe for the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop Face Palette. Even though I don't agree that this is a dupe, I do think it's a great alternative for those who can't afford or simply don't want to shell out $52USD for the Becca palette.
Brand: City Color Cosmetics

Price: $25 USD (I got thison sale for $14USD during 4th of July)

Last year, I went on a cross-country road trip and while in Virginia, I purchased this little guy while visiting The Face Shop. Its been quite a while since my last Korean or Japanese brand review, so I'm actually pretty excited to be exploring these brands again. For those who are unaware, The Face Shop is a road-shop brand (Korean's version of drugstore, but stand alone stores) and most of their items are between 8USD to 20USD - from what I've seen.
A week ago, I was in Concord with the mister to check out Guitar Center and we decided to visit a mall nearby. Low and behold, there was a small beauty shop that carried Morphe along with Sigma and other brands. Initially, I wasn't planning on purchasing anything, but I saw this palette and liked the color scheme, so I made the purchase.
Despite some negativity surrounding this collection (due to the recall of the eyeshadow palette), when Champagne Pop was first released, literally everyone and their mother raved about it. Seriously, some people were losing sleep over this (LOL). Its hard to deny how beautiful and well thought out this palette is. I can see why it was so sought after.
