‘Tis the season to deck the halls with a haul! 😀 I ordered a bunch of lipsticks and glosses from indie brand Eccentric Cosmetics and I have a ton of swatches (and lip swatches!) below…. Continue reading
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!
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 🙂
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 ❤
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!
Yeah I know it’s two weeks into June, but hey! It’s the thought that counts!
I’ve been polishing off a lot of indies lately and tossing some ancient makeup things…
If I could restart my eyeshadow collection from scratch… I might do it with only Femme Fatale! These eyeshadows are some of my top favorites of all time. Their pigmentation, blendability, and unique color selection outperform many indies and mainstream. I highly recommend these.
Most of these are Femme Fatale’s famous duochrome eyeshadows. I don’t own all of them (because there are some darker colors and greens I don’t really wear) but I own a big chunk of their lighter duochromes! Go ahead and read on; you’ll be wowed 🙂
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 🙂
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!
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 find which things I can destash 🙂
