Birds of a Feather: Rose Gold & Gold Eyeshadow Swatch Fest

Happy Saturday! Sorry for the accidental week of absence. I was totally knocked out by a nasty winter virusΒ and was basically useless for a week. I’m feeling better now though, yay!

I have a long Saturday Swatchfest post for you, aka more of my Birds of a Feather series! Today it’s my many, many rose gold shadows and a few more metallic shades thrown in.

Too Faced La CrΓ¨me Lipstick Swatches

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching (gasp!) and for all those who love the holiday, I have two V-day appropriate lipsticks to show you! They’re also two of my new La CrΓ¨me lipsticks that I have to review here. I bought Cinnamon Kiss sometime last year and loved the formula, so I picked up Jelly Bean and Lollipop last time Ulta had a 50% sale πŸ™‚

Massive Copper/Rose Gold/Bronze Indie Eyeshadow Post ~ Silk Naturals, Geek Chic, Victorian Disco, Dark Matter Makeup, Looxi (& one Stila)

The title says it all, really πŸ™‚
In anticipation of ultra-cute indie companyΒ Hello Waffle‘s brand new Blushed collection (ROSE GOLDSSSS!!!) I swatched every single coppery and rose gold loose pigment shadow (and one Stila) trying to see if I already own anything comparable. Thank goodness I don’t, because my hunger for rose golds makes me want the whole shebang πŸ™‚

Anyways, this will be a very pic heavy post! There are 10 eyeshadows from Silk Naturals, Geek Chic Cosmetics, Victorian Disco, Dark Matter Makeup, and Looxi Beauty.

NYX Liquid Suede Lipsticks !!! — Vintage, Cherry Skies, Tea and Cookies — Dupes, Comparisons, and Long Review!

UPDATE:Β Since this is still getting lots of views (hello and welcome!) I’d like to update my review here. I have since destashed ALL of these colors to friends. After the initial hype wore down, these really weren’t that spectacular. Despite trying to work with them for a while and trying different techniques, these were too messy and too slippery for me.

FINALLY! I got my hands on some of the NYX Liquid Suedes! Get ready for a long review πŸ™‚

Red lipstick heartbreak – aka, Estee Lauder’s gorgeous lipstick and why I returned it


Happy Sunday everyone! Time for a long story… I’ve been craving one of the Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting lipsticks since I first saw them on Temptalia. Half the colors have been in my wish list for ages and after my blegh week last week I picked one up on a whim, aiming for a safe choice. I bought Vengeful Red, described on Sephora as a “bright red berry”. Which sounds amazing, right? Continue reading
