(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"
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"

Hard Candy recently released five new ten pan eyeshadow palettes (The Top Ten Trendsetters Eyeshadow Palettes) and the super cute packaging caught me in it’s web of cuteness, thus, I have four of the five palettes to swatch for you today! Yay! A note about my swatches: I felt that the majority of these shades […]Read more "New Hard Candy Ten Pan Eyeshadow Palettes"
Maybelline recently released something that is really exciting to see in the drugstore: a 12 pan eyeshadow palette! Obviously a full eyeshadow palette is rather common to find at Sephora or MAC, but not so much at your local Walgreens. The rundown: 12 eyeshadows A total of 9.6g/.34oz of product (.8g/.028oz per pan if I’m […]Read more "Maybelline The Nudes Eyeshadow Palette"
