Birds of a Feather: Warm Autumnal Matte Browns!

birds-of-a-feather-warm-brown-HEADER

Hello and welcome back to a much-delayed installment of Birds of a Feather, where I swatch a whole pile of similar colors next to each other! Today, in the spirit of September and the rapidly coming fall season, I broke out some of my favorite warm brown autumn shades. These are 99% matte shades.

These are primarily loose shadows, although I do show off my custom (massive) GlamTech palette of pressed shadows and swatch some of those too!

If you love pumpkins, firesides, coffee, butterscotch, oversized sweaters….. well this is the right place for you.

Hello Waffle Visage Box March 2017

Hello all! The end of May and April have been crazy busy, both in bad and good ways. I had an endless plague of computer and car problems, and I’m in the middle of moving to a new state (again!). So forgive my slow posts. I do plan on doing a combined April + May empties post later on this month!

Today I have a belated review of the Hello Waffle Visage from March!

EOTD / Color Challenge

Happy Wednesday! Keeping with my 2017 makeup resolutions, I made sure to wake up extra early so I could do a look more complicated than my usual neutral grab & go.
This one isn’t so much an Eyeshadow Roulette (as I have yet to wrangle all my eyeshadows into a spreadsheet) but more of a color challenge!Β It’s a bit inspired by all those gorgeous warm toned Modern Renaissance looks that are everywhere nowadays!

Ignore how tired I look- it’s week two of my cold that won’t go away :/

August Empties!

Omg guys I’m moving in one week [insert panicky scream here]. It’s my biggest move in a long while and I totally forgot how long it takes to pack! I’ll definitely be packing until the very last minute.

On that note, I have a lot of August empties because I aggressively tried to use up as much as I could of all the half-full random things I have around. There’s a lot and I’m proud of myself, haha πŸ™‚

Birds of a Feather: Blues & Greens

Happy Tuesday and welcome to another installment of ‘Birds of a Feather’! This time I moved on to my eyeshadow collection and catalogued my blues and greens. I’ll go back to my lipstick collection soon, no worries! There’s just so many reds that are ever so slightly different that it’s taking a bit more time than usual. Isn’t that always the problem with reds, haha πŸ˜‰

Anyways, onto today’s colors!

Indie Spotlight ~ Hello Waffle Cosmetics! ~ Huge Swatch Post of Eyeshadows, Highlighter, Blush, Lipstick

Hello everyone! I have an awesome post for you guys today, and I mean awesome as in “ohmygod look at how many swatches there are”. I have swatched my ENTIRE Hello Waffle collection! Every single eyeshadow, blush, highlighter, and lip thing that I own from them. Granted, I don’t have the entire brand (yet) but wowza did I go crazy during her last sale πŸ™‚
If you didn’t know, Hello Waffle is a Canadian indie brand (named after her cat, Waffle!) that does eyeshadows, blushes, lip balms, cheek products, etc. They pretty much do every type of cosmetic. And they have cute themes, including a punny one called Catssic Literature (books + cats!). I’ve been wanting to highlight this brand for a while and now is a good time so you can narrow down your wishlist before their Black Friday sale!

Hello Waffle shadows galore!
