Happy 50% Off Chocolate Day!

IMG_4369

Today is Valentine’s Day, but I like to consider it the day of chocolate sales because love is fleeting while chocolate is eternal. So here’s a look you can wear while you go to buy chocolate today or tomorrow, then you can continue looking  good while you stuff your face.  Continue reading

Happy Lunar New Year!

IMG_4349

i haven’t really done much with eyeshadow lately, but all the LNY hype has been getting to me so I caved and did an eye look with more eyeshadows than I’ve used in the last few weeks combined. Ha. Red and gold is always a fun color combination to play with, I’ll be honest! (I know I’m a day early, but who has time to do this on weekdays anyways?)  Continue reading

Formula X Piaf Nail Polish

IMG_3698

I bought this sucker a month ago at Sephora but I’ve never gotten around to wearing it until now! And, of course, by the time I get around to putting it on and photographing it for a review, it’s already been gone from my brick-and-mortar Sephora for a few weeks. But heck, I didn’t take all these pictures for nothing, and it looks like this is still available for purchase ($12.50) on the Sephora website, so here we go. My nail polish application skills are not the best and for that I apologize in advance.

This polish is part of a limited edition collaboration with the Kat von D brand where Formula X put out several polishes matching some Studded Kiss lipstick colors.  Continue reading

Ecotools Eye-Enhancing Duo Brush Set

IMG_4041

My Sephora eye brushes have started to shed and they feel extremely itchy, so I decided to return to my cheapo brush roots and get a new Ecotools set. I only have one Ecotools eyeshadow brush, but it’s getting a bit old too and I like having multiple eyeshadow brushes so that’s how I’m going to justify this to myself. And I mean, hey, $5.99 for what is essentially a set of 4 brushes is not bad at all. Continue reading

Sephora Birthday Gift 2016: Marc Jacobs Edition

IMG_4003

My mom’s birthday is in January, so she was among the first to have the 2016 Sephora birthday gift bestowed upon her. There are two options: a skincare set from Fresh or a cosmetics set from Marc Jacobs. My mom already has her skincare routine together, so she walked out with the makeup. The set contains a Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in Blacquer ($25 full-sized) and a Le Marc lipstick in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang ($30 full-sized). My mom commented that I could put these on my blog. She knows me too well. Continue reading

Colourpop Swerve, Best O, Stomper Creme Gel Colour

IMG_3846

Colourpop recently released gel eyeliner in a larger range of colors than I’ve ever seen in any eyeliner line ever. I’ve been looking to try gel liner out, so at $6 a pot I couldn’t resist picking out a few. The three I got are relatively tame colors because I needed good daily liners, but next time I’ll definitely be grabbing some more out-there colors because this line knocks it out of the park!

Small Colourpop Haul

IMG_3844

I hope you all had good New Year’s celebrations! I got my Christmas present to myself in the mail today. I’ve been trying to curb my spending on Colourpop stuff but I really, really wanted to give the gel liners a try and get a few more liquid lip colors. I’ll be reviewing these as I test them out but here are some swatches and first impressions to start!  Continue reading
