Natasha Denona Holiday Limited Edition Joya & Aeris Palettes

You can have these when you pry them from my cold dead hands.  I considered buying backups, but that's dumb (isn't it??). Here are the Natasha Denona Limited Edition 2017 Holiday palettes Joya  and Aeris (with the icey blue). They are $48 each and contain 5 pans totaling 2.26 grams of product which is the … Continue reading Natasha Denona Holiday Limited Edition Joya & Aeris Palettes

theBalm Nude’tude & Nude Dude

$8. $8 each. No one can complain about that. Charming Charlie had theBalm products on sale for buy 1 get 1 free and offered $10 off your first purchase as well. So, these ended up being about $8 a piece including shipping. I'm not mad at you Charming Charlie and theBalm. These are not my … Continue reading theBalm Nude’tude & Nude Dude

Use It Up!

I get it. We all want the newest over-hyped palette that just came out and OMG it's limited edition!!! For me, the excitement of getting the latest greatest thing is only surpassed by using it up. This stuff doesn't last forever, eventually it'll expire, go bad, go off trend. The Stila Perfect Me Perfect Hue … Continue reading Use It Up!

ColourPop 12 Super Shock Shadows, 1 Blush & 1 Highlighter

Woop for ColourPop! I placed an order during the Labor day flash sale. All of these items were either 50% off or free. Can't beat that. If you aren't familiar with the ColourPop Super Shock Shadows , they are a cream to powder formula best applied with a finger or a stiff, flat synthetic brush. … Continue reading ColourPop 12 Super Shock Shadows, 1 Blush & 1 Highlighter

Stila Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Eye & Cheek Palette X2

Stila does not get enough love. Their packaging is always so beautifully luxurious and while their regular prices are mid range, when on sale, can fall directly into drugstore territory. I am neither light/medium nor tan/deep but these colors spoke to me. The base color in the light/medium palette is a perfect match for my … Continue reading Stila Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Eye & Cheek Palette X2

Organizing

I'm working on reorganizing my makeup area. I've come to the realization that if I can't see it, I won't use it. Putting things neatly in drawers just ends with me never touching it again and that makes me sad. Currently I'm trying to amass the Sephora $1 ABH empty 4 pan palettes and moving … Continue reading Organizing

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea II, Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette & LE Lip Duo

This was my first ever Tarte purchase, can you believe it? I haven't really been tempted since the reviews Tarte gets vary widely and none of their gimicky releases ever caught my eye. The sale prices certainly did though. Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette $17.85 Regular $42 Limited-Edition Lip Treats Lip Sculptor Duo $7.65 Regular $12 … Continue reading Tarte Rainforest of the Sea II, Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette & LE Lip Duo

The Checkered Lily Swatches & Experience

I discovered The Chequered Lily via "Our Picks..." on Etsy. Since ordering I have seen several Instagram posts featuring their brand. I ordered the Build Your Own Sample Set of 10 Eyeshadows/Glitters/Blushes and asked for a random assortment of eyeshadows. I placed my order on May 27, it shipped the same day and I received … Continue reading The Checkered Lily Swatches & Experience

Lorac Pro Palette & A Mini

Since Lorac is restocking their Mega Pro Palettes I thought I'd swatch these guys that have been in my collection since 2015!! The kickup in these shadows is pretty high however using a flat shader brush and tapping the pan instead of swiping will help alleviate that. Brush swatches over Urban Decay Primer Potion. Follow … Continue reading Lorac Pro Palette & A Mini
