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.

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 🙂
In anticipation of ultra-cute indie company 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 🙂

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: 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. Someone who loves creams that never dry down may love them. I didn’t. 

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

(even more) ColourPop Ultra Matte Lipstick Swatches! ~ indepth review

Oops I bought more.


When I saw the new colors that were released a couple weeks ago, I knew I had to have Clueless. It looked like the perfect muted rosy color that would actually be The MLBB color I want/need.
And of course I had to pick up Lychee because PURPLE and Bumble because it’s a perfect dupe for Kat Von D’s Double Dare which I was lusting after. So I placed another ColourPop order (got some shadows too- more on that later) and got these three new lipsticks 🙂

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

Clinique Poppy Pop Lipstick ~ Comparisons / Dupes

Hi guys! Sorry for the quiet lately. My place has been having some serious internet issues and my service provider is being extremely unhelpful 😦 So it may be a little slow with posts around here until I can get the internet back and running!

In the meantime, I have a quick comparison of the new Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer lipstick to a couple very similar drugstore colors 🙂
