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

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

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

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

LYS Beauty and Melt Cosmetics

One item I’m discussing today is a bronzer, but the rest are cream blushes. Cream, liquid, and balm blushes have become extremely popular this year and while I have held off on getting some (and even returned one from Tower 28), these were too tempting to resist. Lys Beauty This is the first Black-Owned “Clean” beauty brand at Sephora. I watched a fantastic interview … Read More LYS Beauty and Melt Cosmetics

INDIE BRAND SPOTLIGHT: Persona Cosmetics Review

I’d like to begin this post by noting the Georgia Blush, Del Mar Highlighter, and 24Hr Eyeliner were gifted to me by Persona Cosmetics for the purpose of customer satisfaction and not for blog/reviewing purposes. I will go more into detail on that in the Terracotta Blush section. Prior to January 5th, I only had the eyeshadow palettes. The Identity Two palette specifically had … Read More INDIE BRAND SPOTLIGHT: Persona Cosmetics Review

Ofra Cosmetics Review

Ofra is a small Florida based company best known for their highlighters and liquid lipsticks. I wasn’t aware of the brand until four years ago when Ofra had their first collaboration with Youtuber Nikkietutorials. Since then, they’ve continued to partner with influencers: Nikkie, Kathleenlights, Samantha March, Jen Luvs, and more. I imagine Ofra is doing very well considering their products are available at Ulta. … Read More Ofra Cosmetics Review

Natasha Denona Collection Review

I forgot to include my Natasha Denona cheek products in my initial photo, but this post will cover everything I own from the brand! Bloom Blush and Glow Palette I use the Glow Cream Base as a subtle wet looking highlighter. I also mix it with the dark red Cream Blush to create a medium pink shade, since I don’t like the tone of … Read More Natasha Denona Collection Review

PUR x Barbie and Kiko Milano 2020 Holiday Collections

It’s a bit late to post about last year’s holiday items, but as these products are still available and on sale, I really wanted to post my thoughts on them. Pur x Barbie Palette I received this palette as a birthday gift. Until this point, I hadn’t tried anything from PUR, but I heard mixed reviews about their eyeshadow formula. I was pleasantly surprised … Read More PUR x Barbie and Kiko Milano 2020 Holiday Collections

Milani and Clinique Blushes

Today’s review is about redemption! My first experiences with Milani and Clinique blushes were not very good, but I decided to give them another chance. With one brand it was worth the risk, but not so much with the other. Milani Rose Powder Blush in Coral Cove This was the first Milani blush I purchased, and it was almost my last. This brand is … Read More Milani and Clinique Blushes
