Hope everyone’s Halloween was fun and full of candy! This year I did two costumes (Poison Ivy and Peggy Carter) but I made the extra effort for my Poison Ivy makeup. As an additional challenge I tried to use only indie makeup!

Shiro Cosmetics Fall Collection: A Series of Unfortunate Events

I am literally a year late with this review, but hey! Better late than never! And of course the timing felt right since it’s truly autumn sweater weather now.

I have Shiro’s whole “Collection of Calamitous Cosmetics” swatched for you today. It is their Series of Unfortunate Events collection from fall 2016. Their new fall 2017 collection just dropped today too! It’s inspired by the animated mini-series “Over the Garden Wall”.Β  I am OBSESSED with Shiro’s fall collections. Remember the Harry Potter one from fall 2015? Still one of my all time faves. The fall eyeshadows they make are just pure perfection.

Without further ado, let’s view this incomparable tragedy about orphans, terrible villains, a secret society, and many unfortunate events.

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.

June & July Combined Empties!

I’m catching up on my empties now! There was a lot finished in June and July. I’m hoping to finish even more this August, but I definitely need to recommit to finishing already open products rather than starting on new things. It’s hard because I just love playing around with new items! But that’s what makes this the challengeΒ part of the Reverse Rouge Challenge πŸ™‚

January Empties & Reverse Rouge Update

Happy February and happy Friday! It is an especially happy friday for me. I got my laptop back!! The new hard drive means I lost the last few weeks of photos (Don’t be me, folks! Back up often! ) butΒ I am so happy to have my laptop again. Today has been a great day so far since I can actually do my work on something other than a tiny phone screen πŸ™‚

I have all my empties for January as well as an update on the Reverse Rouge project!
