Kat Von D Lightning Liner & Ink Liner

Hello all! Today I have a swatch post (and sort of comparison) of two of the Kat Von D liners on the market. I actually also have the Tattoo liner in Trooper, but since that is a basic black (and my oft-talked about HG) I thought you’d like to see two of my more fun colors!Β All my KVD is purchased at Sephora.

Lipstick Tag! Q&A with Swatchlette

HAPPY SATURDAY! It’s been a long week at chΓ’teau Swatchlette (haha) so I’m very glad to have a little time off. I do work weekends, but Saturdays are still my most open day of the week πŸ™‚

I decided to a fun post today and answer questions about LIPSTICKS! These are my true kryptonite (well, that and metallic eyeshadow) and I have enough to last my whole lifetime. So of course the lipstick tag seems the perfect thing to answer.

Mini Sephora Haul~ Kat Von D Bachelorette, Eyelashes, Hourglass VIB Promo Gift

Happy Monday! I cannot believe it’s almost September!!! It’s kind of scary how fast 2015 is flying by. But September means it’s almost October which means it’s almost time for my favorite holiday πŸ™‚

Today I have a little mini haul from Sephora! I saw that they were doing a VIB/Rouge promo where you get a little sampler of Hourglass minis with purchase so I kind of impulse bought some things so I could get the promo πŸ™‚ #noregrets

NYX Liquid Suede Lipsticks !!! — Vintage, Cherry Skies, Tea and Cookies — Dupes, Comparisons, and Long Review!

UPDATE:Β 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.Β 

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

(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 πŸ™‚

HAPPY FRIDAY HAUL! Aka I went nuts when I saw *this* on sale…!

I am SO THANKFUL that it’s Friday! This has been the longest week ever. August has been slow and hot and gross so I’m glad the first seven days are over πŸ™‚

I popped into Sephora to return an item (post on that later) and on my way out I looked at the Sephora that’s in JCPenneys just to check out the differences in items they carry (for example, my regular Sephora was sold out of most of the new Kat Von D shades but the one in JCP had them all still). And lo and behold, the entire stock of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics was on a big clearance! I’ve been wanting to try the brand forΒ years now but never really took the plunge. So of course, feeling good this Friday, I bought a bunch!


I got the OCC Tinted Moisturizer in R1 (I plan on mixing this with another foundation that’s too yellow for me), the Creme Colour Concentrate in Miriam (an awesome muted rose plum), Lip Tars in Manhunter (crazy sparkly gold red) and Roleplay (metallic red), and a Cosmetic Colour Pencil in Feathered (bright white, plan on using this on my bottom waterline). Everything was 50% off πŸ™‚

I’m EXCITED to play around with these! I haven’t ever used OCC but I’ve heard great things.

Oh, and by the way guys, there’s a lot of cool things in the Sephora sale section right now. Like the Kat Von D Chrysalis palette!!!

Screen Shot 2015-08-07 at 4.01.33 PMI got in-person confirmation today that this palette is being DISCONTINUED. Which really makes me itchy to grab one… I don’t really use palettes that often and I tend to build my own, but daaaang this is tempting.

Have an awesome weekend~!

til later lovelies,
xoxo Swatchlette

EOTD ~ Indie Spotlight on Victorian Disco!

Happy Monday (or in my case, “happy six cups of tea day!”) Mondays are not my favorite atΒ all. But in order to brighten my day I decided to do a fun and easy eye look! Something you guys may not know about me is that I actually have way way more eyeshadows than lipsticks! Which really is a feat to accomplish. I’ve been collecting indie brand loose pigments for hmm, probably six years now and I have a huge collection from a lot of different brands. (As well as singles and z-palettes and a regular palettes that aren’t in the photo and well, you get the point! I have a lot of eyeshadow).


a whole drawer of eyeshadow!

I’ve been meaning to document and actually use everything I own at least once for the purposes of swatching, so I thought “why not start today?”
