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: Greens

It’s a Saturday swatch party at my place and everyone is invited πŸ™‚

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 areΒ 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 earlyΒ 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!

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!

Face of the Day / Eye of the Day

I hope everyone is having a good week so far! Today I have a face of the day / eye of the day photo for you! I’m trying to do a “no repeat” Novemeber sort of thing and use everything in my collection at least once. I have so many eyeshadows and lipsticks that I tend to default to my favorite ones. Forcing myself to do a unique look every day will help me really use all my products, discover hidden gems, and help me findΒ which things I can destash πŸ™‚

(Note: this was totally supposed to be published yesterday but apparently my queue decided to be difficult :P)

Happy TuesdayΒ  Wednesday!Β Today I have swatches of Notoriously Morbid’s October Vanishing Cabinet subscription box, with the Harry Potter ghosts theme! It was actually a VC overstock box, and since I don’t have a subscription I’m really happy I snagged one! I’m a total sucker for anything Harry Potter and I’ve always wanted to try NM’s subscription!
