Artist Couture Love Sprung and Supreme Nudes Palette Review

I’ve toyed with the idea of making an “Influencer Brands” review, but I kept pushing it back as I haven’t been inspired by the products in mind for that post. So, I decided to give Artist Couture a solo review. The brand is owned by Angel Merino, also known as “mac_daddyy” on social media. I heard the name mentioned many times by Jackie Aina … Read More Artist Couture Love Sprung and Supreme Nudes Palette Review

Swatchfest #4: My Newest Single Eyeshadows

I tend to post my newest purchases far in advance on my Instagram page, so if you’ve found me through there, you may have seen some of these already. However, the majority of these shadows I’m featuring today have not been posted on this blog until now. In addition to arm swatches, I’ve also tried to do eye swatches and some finger swatches as … Read More Swatchfest #4: My Newest Single Eyeshadows

War of the Rose Blushes

I noticed how many of the newer blushes in my collection had ‘Rose’ in the name, and thought it would be cute to make a play on “War of the Roses” as the title of this post. It was intended to be a lighthearted review, but I admittedly went on a rant in the BareMinerals section. If you’re strictly interested on a discussion of … Read More War of the Rose Blushes

10 Neglected Eyeshadow Palettes

Urban Decay and Anastasia Beverly Hills are two brands whose eyeshadow palettes I continually buy but either only use a handful of times or never even swatch! And aside from the Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar palette, every Too Faced palette I’ve purchased afterwards has been neglected too! Today, I’ll be posting swatches of all the palettes I have left from those three brands. … Read More 10 Neglected Eyeshadow Palettes

Hindash Beautopsy Palette Review

The idea of having a product that I can customize my shade of powder, blush, bronzer, contour, eyeshadow, etc. all in one palette appeals to the wannabe minimalist in me. I call myself a wannabe because I enjoy having a large beauty collection while simultaneously being overwhelmed by the amount I possess. This is why I love the concept of face palettes, but it’s … Read More Hindash Beautopsy Palette Review

Indie Brand Spotlight: Oden’s Eye Review

As a lover of mythology, and of course makeup, I’ve been drawn to this company from the moment I heard about it. When the Swedish brand first established themselves, they stated, “Oden’s Eye is inspired by ancient Nordic mythology, and our products and collections will also be built around this theme.” Their initial collections were very light and whimsical with eyeshadow palettes that reflected … Read More Indie Brand Spotlight: Oden’s Eye Review

A Little Luxury: My First Hermès Beauty and Dior Backstage Purchases

I’m as much addicted to getting a good deal as I am to collecting blushes, so when I was able to get Rose Feu (the only shade I wanted from the Rose Hermès line) just ten days after the product launched, and for significantly less money via Mercari, it felt like I had reached the pinnacle of my blush obsession. This is the first, … Read More A Little Luxury: My First Hermès Beauty and Dior Backstage Purchases

Danessa Myricks Beauty, Mented Cosmetics, and Coloured Raine Mini Reviews

Danessa Myricks Beauty and Mented Cosmetics are brands I’ve been curious about over the past year and I decided to try a few things from each of them! This is also the first time in a long while since I’ve purchased something other than eyeshadows from Coloured Raine! Danessa Myricks Balm Contour in Deep 1 Danessa Myricks is a makeup artist and her products … Read More Danessa Myricks Beauty, Mented Cosmetics, and Coloured Raine Mini Reviews

New Propa Beauty Lipsticks and Lip Collection Declutter

Excluded from this Declutter post will be all lip balms, lip treatments, and my own custom and handmade lip products I’ve made. Also excluded are a few limited edition lip products I have hidden away that I’m keeping for the packaging. The Declutter portion is primarily to give swatches of old products before I toss them, so that section will be more about arm … Read More New Propa Beauty Lipsticks and Lip Collection Declutter

FUDE COLLECTION PART 2

This is my third post about Japanese brushes, but the first two were combined into part one, which can be viewed here. Unlike my past posts, this one includes brands that are not strictly from Kumano. I’d also like to note that now that I’m familiar with the different sales and discounts offered among the retailers, I didn’t pay full price for any of … Read More FUDE COLLECTION PART 2

My Eye and Face Primer Collection and Declutter

I have tried my best to post consistently every week for a year, and in order to do that, I have to work on posts in advance and have them scheduled and ready to go each Monday. In doing so, I sometimes run into issues where I say I’m not going to buy something but end up getting it by the time that post … Read More My Eye and Face Primer Collection and Declutter

Glossier Cloud Paints vs Colourpop Serum Blushes

As of right now, the Cloud Paints, Cheek Dews, and Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blushes (in the mini size I reviewed last year) are the only liquid blushes in my collection. I’ve heard great things about the Flower Beauty Blush Bomb Color Drops and Chantecaille Cheek Gelee Blushes, so when the Flower Beauty Drops went on sale a few days ago, I bought … Read More Glossier Cloud Paints vs Colourpop Serum Blushes
