Milani Rose Powder Blush in Coral Cove is a prime example of swatches not being indicative of the quality or performance of a product. Coral Cove swatches powdery and patchy but applies and wears like a dream. I’m not going to lie, I purchased this blush because it’s so pretty in the pan. As you […]Read more "Milani Rose Powder Blush in Coral Cove"
Kat Von D is, generally speaking, one of my favorite cosmetic companies. I’m a complete eye shadow palette junky and Kat Von D (KVD) consistently produces lovely, high quality, cruelty free and relatively affordable palettes. The latest palette from the brand is the Shade and Light Eye Palette (there is also a Shade and Light […]Read more "Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Palette"

Recently Flower Beauty has added a few new things to their range, one of which is the Shadow Play Eyeshadow Quad in Dusk ‘Til Dawn. Now, you might already have noticed this, but I love me some orange makeup. So obviously, this quad just spoke to me. I mean come on! Light creamsicle orange eyeshadow?

One of Essie’s more recent collections (I can’t keep up, is this a winter collection? Fall? I really am not sure.) is called Comfy in Cashmere and consists of several neutral velvety matte shades. I picked up two and the first one I wore on my nails is Wrap Me Up. I know what you’re […]Read more "NOTW Double Header – Essie Wrap Me Up and Essie Little Brown Dress"
There have been some seriously mixed feelings about Pantone’s color of the year for 2015. Quite a few people have voiced the opinion that Marsala (18-1438) is a somewhat drab color but you know what? Give me all the things in Marsala! Earthy red toned eyeshadow? Hell yes! (In fact, as I’m writing this, I […]Read more "Sephora + Pantone Universe Facets of Marsala Multi-Finish Eye Palette – Review + A Boatload of Swatches"
This week is all about the sparkle and shine. And the barrage of posts by me (this is what happens when I’m given vacation time). But mostly, it’s about sparkle and shine.There’s something a bit magical about how a good highlighter can give definition to your bone structure, make your skin look fresh and young […]Read more "Review – Josie Maran Argan Illuminizer"
Over the Edge is part of Essie’s permanent collection and the Essie website describes it as a dramatic metallic midnight silver. This nail polish is on the thin side and requires three coats for full opacity. I think I could have benefitted from a fourth coat in all honesty. Despite being a tad watery, this […]Read more "NOTW: Essie – Over the Edge"
So, there I was, walking through Sephora on a mission to restock my supply of brush cleaner, just minding my own business and thinking very hard about how I’m a grown woman who is perfectly capable of resisting the marketing ploys and strategically placed displays of cosmetics and I’m also thinking about just looking straight […]Read more "Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette – Review + Swatches"
Rising Star is part of the Wet n’ Wild Halloween collection and was a complete impulse purchase. The sweet cashier at Walgreens said she had purchased it and that it was her new favorite. Who could resist that kind of temptation? Obviously not me. I expected this to be a standard glitter top coat and […]Read more "Nail of the Week: Wet n, Wild Mega Rocks in Rising Star"
