Washing

This is how I wash my brushes. I try to wash once a week, but some cream products that dry and set I wash after use, and being generally on synthetic brushes, often I’ll just reach for my bar of hand soap of the moment. I do the same with brushes that have lipstick on…

NYX review: matte, round and full throttle

So… well this has been a long time in the making. I got these ages ago: Truth is I haven’t been wearing bold lips as much as I’d want to. In summer when it is very hot I don’t feel like it because of the melty weather. Plus I had allergies. In winter, I am one…

Sugarpill!

I finally got some Sugarpill stuff! In keeping with my new year’s resolution 😉 I ordered two red eyeshadows: loose Asylum and pressed Love + This was my first time ordering anything from Poland: bestmakeup.pl and I received the package in three days 🙂 also, no custom charges from Poland! They have a nice selection of brands,…

Finally

After keeping an eye out for months, yesterday I finally found the lightest locally available shade of Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum … which sadly isn’t 51 but 52.

Six discounted items, +

From Kiko I got a high pigment eyeshadow, another sparkling trail stick eyeshadow, and… a nail polish! bad I know. These…

Neve cosmetics

Another package! woot! BTW shipping took basically one day, superb service and delivery. And that box! What I got: Jellyfish*, Seahorse*, Compilation*, Red Carpet, Submarine* Oyster*, Tattoo The pigments (marked *) are of nice quality, comparable to pigments/loose shadows from other indie companies. The eyeshadows (both are matte) are so-so in texture, a little patchy…

Nabla, Kiko, Lollipops & TBS swatches

Ok, so it is still kinda dark, but we’ll do what we can. As expected, yesterday I received the highly anticipated (I’m not normally like this, must be the hormones!) Nabla package. I could simply not wait to swatch the eyeshadows… I took some pictures beforehand in artificial light, which I don’t really like to…

Some new things and an update

So I have not posted in a while. Several things have been going on. I’m now 7 months pregnant, keeping my nails short and bare, and so have abandoned the nail polish challenge for the time being. I plan on returning to it. I still have been a good girl and not bought any nail…
