Welcome to Round 2 of the Shiro sample sale order! When I was placing my order, I was hoping to find a few new neutral staples (things like blending shades and transition shades). It turns out that most of the neutral shades available are actually from Detrivore Cosmetics so I’m dedicating this particular post to […]Read more "Shiro Eyeshadow Samples – Part 2"
Back in September, Shiro had a really good sale on eyeshadow samples ($.70 per baggie!) so naturally I showed great restraint and only picked up a few things. Ok, ok, you got me, I picked up 22 things. 22 counts as a few right? In the interest of not writing a Melville-esque post, I’ll break […]Read more "Shiro Eyeshadow Samples – Part 1"
You may or may not have noticed that I am quite fond of purple eyeshadow. With that in mind, it makes complete sense that I would be drawn to the bareMinerals quad in The Dream Sequence. This particular quad is odd in that I don’t really feel like any of the shades coordinate well with […]Read more "bareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow 4.0 – The Dream Sequence"
First things first, I feel the need to state that there are going to be a LOT of photos in this post. You have been warned. Sephora released an entire collection of Jem and the Holograms products, one of which is this delightful little eyeshadow palette (and I do mean little, each eyeshadow is .018oz/.52g): […]Read more "Jem and the Holograms Truly Outrageous Eyeshadow Palette"
I know that the word “obsessed” gets thrown around a lot in the beauty blogging world. It probably irritates you as much as it irritates me but, that being said, I am becoming a little concerned with my inability to use a blush other than MAC Melba. I have a quite large collection of fantastic […]Read more "MAC Powder Blush – Melba"
Sometimes I have a very hard time pairing blush with my eye looks or lipstick. It seems really easy to make a choice that sends my face over the edge from “edgy and cool”HAHAHAhaha.ha. balanced to garish. So rather than try to wipe blush off my face and start over (PITA), I value having a […]Read more "MAC Mineralize Blush in Warm Soul"
I occasionally hear praise for the Tarte matte eyeshadow palettes but for the most part, when I think of Tarte, I think of their much lauded blush line. I only have one shade and I just freaking realized when I sat down to write this post that this shade has been discontinued. I purchased this […]Read more "Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Amused"
What up homies! I’m sorry, I think I’ve actually lost the plot. So today, we’re going to talk about a rather unique lip gloss. Hypnotist is a multi-chrome lip gloss! Now, I don’t know if multi-chrome is a thing or if I just made it up but that’s what I’m going with as a descriptor […]Read more "bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss in Hypnotist (AKA Unicorn snot)"
As you know, I’ve been working my way through trying as many indie eye shadows as possible. Today I want to show you what I ordered for my “Indie Birthday Present to Myself” last month. I did order two lip colors but I’m going to split those into a separate post. Hopefully you can handle […]Read more "First Order from Fyrinnae – Eyeshadows"
Do you remember a few years ago when NARS Laguna bronzer was THE THING to have and every blogger/vlogger/guru talked about it all the time? Pepperidge Farm remembers. I haven’t heard anyone mention it in quite a while now so maybe that’s a testament to how fickle beauty fads can be. Obviously I purchased Laguna […]Read more "NARS Laguna Bronzer"
