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 🙂
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!

Notoriously Morbid Vanishing Cabinet October 2015 (Harry Potter Ghosts!) ~ Swatches & Review

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

Happy Tuesday  Wednesday! 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!

Shiro Cosmetics – Marauders, Mugwumps, and Muggles Collection – PART 1 Swatches

Oh my gosh you guys. I knew these would be good, but I didn’t expect just how much I would love them! I think Shiro’s MM&M Collection seriously knocked it out of the park in terms of beautiful fall colors, pigmentation, ease of use, and all-around awesomeness!

There’s a billion photos so I am breaking the posts up into multiple parts 😀

Guessss whaaaat? I got my Shiro Harry Potter inspired collection in the mail today 😀 I hope to swatch & photo it all this week (maybe tomorrow?) I’m so excited about all 25 products!
I cannot for the life of me get instagram to embed my video nicely, but if you check out my IG you’ll see I have a quick video of the sparkly-ness that is the Amortentia lip gloss!

Indie Spotlight~ Rascal Cosmetics ~ Wild Animals Eyeshadows and K-Pop Blush

Time for another indie spotlight 🙂 I had the good luck of winning an instagram contest for a few Rascal Cosmetics products of my choice! This is the first time I’ve won an IG contest so I’m pretty excited about these goodies. Makes them feel extra special because of how I got them.

Anyways, Lindsey the owner is a total sweetheart, and despite me being a total idiot and not seeing the message in a timely manner, she still sent out some products of my choice. I picked three shadows and one face product. Keep reading for the review and swatches 🙂
