Birds of a Feather: Greens

It’s a Saturday swatch party at my place and everyone is invited 🙂

I’ve had quite a backlog of my Birds of a Feather series that I’ve been meaning to post… so I’m procrastinating on packing for my move by playing with my makeup! Today I have jewels to show off: my emeralds! Now not all of these are emerald, but these are my dark greens to my weird olives. I love green- it really helps show off the green in my hazel eyes. Alas, I rarely wear it as anything other than liner. I just can’t seem to get a fully green eye look to work on me! Any tips and tutorials from you guys would be loved ❤

June & July Empty Products!

It has been madness around my place this past month. Oh, and apparently I’m moving sometime early September and it’s sort of unplanned and [insert excited & frantic screaming here].

If anyone has tips for how to safely pack and move with makeup and perfume (especially the 394734 indie samples I own) I would greatly appreciate it!

And without further ado, here is my super belated pile of June and July empties!

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 virus 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.

AFK Cosmetics – Princess Bride Collection

Continuing my Valentine’s theme, I have AFK’s Princess Bride collection to review! I’m not the biggest fan of romantic sappy movies (with a few exceptions) but I love romantic comedies. I consider The Princess Bride to be more like 75% comedy and 25% romantic, but it’s still a good Valentine’s movie choice 🙂

AFK’s Princess Bride collection is technically not for sale right now, but it may crop back up seasonally or for a Black Friday special, which is how I snagged mine. The highlighter in this collection, Mawwage, is thankfully permanent and is also one of HG’s. Do recommend!

Too Faced La Crème 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 Crème 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 🙂

Indie Spotlight – Kiss My Sass Cosmetics

Hello all! I hope everyone is having a fun Friday. I know I’m looking forward to the weekend! Today I have another indie brand spotlight for you, this time on Kiss My Sass Cosmetics. They’re a relatively well-established cosmetics and bath brand, and they have a monthly subscription service too called Lip Addicts Anonymous. I purchased a variety of things from them a few months ago and now I’ve finally gotten around to reviewing them 🙂
