Makeup trends come and go (duh) but I feel like highlighting has been having a rather long moment and I couldn’t be more pleased about that. Highlighter is just fun. It’s bright and happy and it can be shiny or sparkly, there’s basically not much I don’t like about highlighter. Today we’re going to take […]Read more "MAC Mineralized Skin Finish – Lightscapade"
I recently hauled the NYX Avant Pop palette in Nouveau Chic so today we’re going to take a bit of a closer look at this little gem.

I’m not sure there’s really enough coffee in the world to make my brain function well this early on the weekend. Want to know why I’m up right now? Well, […]Read more "Kat Von D Metal Crush Eyeshadow – Thunderstruck"

It reads as a […]Read more "Essence Amazed By You – Nail of the Week"

Before we get in to the pretty pretty swatches, I think we should take just a quick moment to talk about how awful the name of this palette is. Nude Awakening? Really Wet n’ Wild? What does that even mean? Is it supposed to be sexy? Or maybe it’s the start to a really weird […]Read more "Wet n’ Wild Au Naturel Palette – Nude Awakening"
Happy Valentine’s Day! I know I’m a little late to the party with this review, but the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette is new to me even though it’s been out for ages. I waffled back and forth between the original Chocolate Bar, the Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar and the Chocolate Bon Bons palette. The Semi-Sweet […]Read more "Chocolate For Valentine’s Day!

Welcome to the fifth and final installment of the swatch fest that has been my Shiro eyeshadow sample sale haul! (I’ve been working on getting that description shorter but I think I can safely say that I have actually managed to make it longer in each post). Let’s just dive right in shall we? This […]Read more "Shiro Eyeshadow Samples – Part 5"
Today we’re just going to dive straight into the next segment of swatches from my Shiro order. Canine Help You? from the New Leaf Trio Good morning, Mayor! A color for sweet Isabelle, who just wants to be helpful. Dreamy pastel yellow-orange creamsicle base with soft golden shimmer. Almost neutral, but not quite! This is […]Read more "Shiro Eyeshadow Samples – Part 4"
