Nars Man Ray Veil Cheek Palette

I'm sad to say that this Nars Man Ray Veil cheek palette might go back to Sephora. It's beautiful. Smooth and lovely but both the bronzer and the highlight are too dark for my skin tone. The blush is lightly pigmented and gorgeous though. I had considered using the highlight as a bronzer but it … Continue reading Nars Man Ray Veil Cheek Palette

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

Sephora Eye Shadow Haul

Let's just cut to the chase. I liked these Sephora eye shadows a lot more than I thought I would! They do not have a lot of kick up, they blend easily and are much softer than they look. The silver (Diamonds Are Forever) is the best silver I've ever owned. These are definitely worth taking … Continue reading Sephora Eye Shadow Haul

September Boxycharm – 2nd Box 2nd Snafu

September Boxycharm time. Although this box was pretty meh for me, it's still near impossible to beat for the cost. My palette arrives with 2 pans smashed. After 2 emails to Boxycharm, the second after which they asked for a picture of the palette next to the shipping box, they credited my Boxycharm account with … Continue reading September Boxycharm – 2nd Box 2nd Snafu

Notoriously Morbid Watercolor Stains-Orbital

The Notoriously Morbid Watercolor Stains - Orbital palette is beyond words gorgeous. The handmade, no 2 are identical, highlighter/eyeshadow palette contains 3 different shades that are unique and super SUPER highlighty(?). Although they seem to contain micro glitters I wouldn't call them glittery but rather mega glowy. My husband has NEVER commented on my eyeshadow other … Continue reading Notoriously Morbid Watercolor Stains-Orbital

August Boxycharm – My 1st Box!

I had a weird snafu with my first Boxycharm subscription box. I placed my order and immediately after entering my credit card information I received an error page indicating something went wrong. I waited a few hours, watched my inbox for a confirmation email, looked at my newly made account and received no indication that … Continue reading August Boxycharm – My 1st Box!

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

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
