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

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

JD Glow and Terra Moons Cosmetics

Unlike some of the other Indie brands I’ve discussed before, I didn’t feel like I had enough to say about JD Glow or Terra Moons for standalone posts, so I combined them both here today. Terra Moons Cosmetics The majority of my Terra Moons mattes are from the Neon Mattes Collection, in which I have 9 of the 14. Neverland is a discontinued traditional … Read More JD Glow and Terra Moons Cosmetics

Kaleidos x Angelica Nyqvist Club Nebula Palette

Today, I’ll be reviewing the Club Nebula palette and showing the reformulated Mars Melter Highlighter. The reason I’ll just be showing, but not reviewing, the highlighter is because mine was shattered. My usual method of repressing shimmer products is to use a little 91% isopropyl alcohol. While I don’t believe the integrity of the two eyeshadows from the palette were effected, I believe not … Read More Kaleidos x Angelica Nyqvist Club Nebula Palette

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

Juvia’s Place Review Part 2

In my last Juvia’s Place review, I mentioned that I wasn’t getting anything new lately because of the pressed glitters that Juvia’s Place kept putting in nearly all of their palettes from part of 2019 through 2020. However, there was a big sale during the holidays and I folded. Nubian Glow Gift Set This collection consists of the Nubian Glow Palette, the Mango Lip … Read More Juvia’s Place Review Part 2

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

Swatchfest #3: Viseart

In order to get more use out of my Viseart shadows, I depotted them from their smaller palettes, then placed them in one custom magnetic palette, and lastly sold the remaining shades I didn’t want in my collection. Muse Beauty Pro sells some shades individually, so I ordered a few of those as well during various sales. Most of these do not have names, … Read More Swatchfest #3: Viseart


I’ve never been one to fawn over brands. There are some companies whose products I really like, and I speak about them highly, but when it comes to Clionadh Cosmetics I fully acknowledge I am a Stan. I respect the company so much because of their amazing customer service, social media presence, and support of customers, creators, and even other indie brands. The biggest … Read More INDIE BRAND SPOTLIGHT: Clionadh Cosmetics
