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

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

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

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

Propa Beauty, Fenty, and Tower 28 Lip Products

Besides the few other lip products I reviewed earlier in the year, the items I’m discussing today are the only other lip products I purchased in 2020! It wasn’t even a matter of having to wear a mask in public being the deterrent. I’ve just always been more of a balm girl. I’ve purchased many lipsticks and lipglosses in the past, only to let … Read More Propa Beauty, Fenty, and Tower 28 Lip Products

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

Swatchfest Part 2: Harry Potter x Ulta

Harry Potter had a huge impact on my life, even into adulthood. I have memories of spending time at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter with friends and significant others. Although the initial launch of this brand collab happened around the time J.K. Rowling was actively trying to get herself canceled on Twitter, I couldn’t help myself but to purchase this collection despite being … Read More Swatchfest Part 2: Harry Potter x Ulta

INDIE BRAND SPOTLIGHT: Juvia’s Place Review

I’ve been a Juvia’s Place customer for three years now, but it wasn’t until 2019-2020 that I actually started using what I purchased. Most of my experience with the brand is through their eyeshadow palettes. The quality is great but the color stories always threw me for a loop. I never knew how to pair colors together in a way that I felt was … Read More INDIE BRAND SPOTLIGHT: Juvia’s Place Review

Fenty Beauty Review

I already posted about the Fenty Sun Stalk’r Bronzer here and the Cream Blushes here, but these are additional photos of those products. Mocha Mami is in the first picture alone and in the second photo is a lightly applied mixture of Strawberry Drip and Rose Latte along with Mocha Mami. I’m a fan of all three products. Today, I will be focusing on … Read More Fenty Beauty Review

Best of Rare Beauty Lip and Cheek Set

When Rare Beauty first launched, I couldn’t decide between Joy and Love blush shades and I didn’t want to have so many cream and liquid products all being opened at once. So, I held off buying them and I’m glad I did because this 4 piece set is perfect for me! At these sizes, I don’t feel as guilty about how often I’d get … Read More Best of Rare Beauty Lip and Cheek Set

Colourpop Garden Variety, Sailor Moon, and Mulan Collections

Since the end of 2019 until the time of me starting to work on this post, the collections from Colourpop haven’t been dark-skin friendly (or at least the items I’ve wanted haven’t been). Today, I’ll be discussing the bits and pieces from different collections I have purchased that work for me, to an extent. GARDEN VARIETY COLLECTION Garden Variety Palette The design of this … Read More Colourpop Garden Variety, Sailor Moon, and Mulan Collections
