Hello Waffle February Visage (2017)

Hello all, I have a special post today! I recently received my very first Hello Waffle visage monthly box! It’s an indie makeup subscription and you can find Hello Waffle here.

I adore every single thing I’ve bought from them and I tend to pick up visage extras whenever they show up, so I took the plunge and finally subscribed to the monthly box 🙂

Sometimes I Stalk Sephulta…..

So sometimes on my work breaks I stalk the “New!” sections at Sephora and Ulta. And sometimes I GASP out loud because I see something spectacular…


NEW Estee Lauder Pure Color Love lipstick in Moon Rock (foil metallic lipstick)

UM, EXCUSE ME but what is this glorious new lipstick called Moon Rock that’s described as a “foil”?!

It appears Ulta has a whole LINE, as in THIRTY, new Estee Lauder lipsticks just for their store. This includes the foil beauty Moon Rock as seen above as well as others that catch my eye like this other foil color…


NEW Estee Lauder Pure Color Love lipstick in Pocket Venus (foil metallic lipstick)


There seems to be four finishes: créme, matte, pearl, and foil. With thirty colors!!!! As per the Ulta website, they are online starting Valentines Day and in store March 12. My local Ulta doesn’t carry Estee in store (grrrrrr…) but DAAANG I cannot wait for the first swatches and reviews start pouring in! @ my girl Temptalia PLEASE do me a solid and review these 😉


What new things have sparked your interested lately?




Monday blues

So my laptop has had a terrible hard drive failure today which sadly means I’ve lost a bunch of photos I was getting ready to post for this week’s lipstick round-up as well as some EOTDs. WordPress on mobile isn’t the best experience so I’ll be taking a short break as my laptop is being repaired.

I went to Ulta on my way back from dropping my laptop off for repairs (therapy shopping, am I right?). I totally fell in love with the new UD liquid vice lipsticks. I only purchased Backtalk, since I love that one in the vice cream formula. I’ve been wearing it for the last four hours and so far so good!

Weekly Roundup : Jan. 15 – 22

So many lipsticks this week!! I’ve been really brutal about following the 100 Days of Lipstick challenge and taking photos, even when lighting isn’t ideal. Another one of my New Year’s resolutions was the idea of “finished, not perfect” across many aspects of my life. It’s useful for me to document my makeup looks, so even when the photos aren’t perfect I’m still posting them 🙂

Birds of a Feather : MLBB Lipstick Swatch fest

So, if you haven’t heard by now, MAC just released an “exclusive” shade called So Select for their ‘select’ members. Aka MAC really wants people to sign up for their new rewards program by tempting you in with a special lipstick. It’s genius marketing and the color definitely has me, a MLBB lover, especially interested. It’s described as a dusty rose, and HELLLOOO that’s one of my favorite things ever.

1) I’m on a lipstick no-buy because I already have quite a lot
2) it looks pretty darn dupable
3) honestly, it might not look good on me at all (it looks too warm/terracotta)

In the spirit of reminding myself what MLBBs I already own and which ones I love more than this mystery So Select color, I’ve swatched ALL my MLBB lipsticks, from My Lips But Peacher, to My Lips But Mauve-r. Welcome to Birds of a Feather: MLBB edition!
