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…

More depotting

I really should keep better inventory… but what a boring post would that be! Last Friday I depotted 10 shadows that had been waiting for a while, since I had run out of magnets. And palettes 😉 Last week I bought a new MAC palette (with clear cover), I like these because they’re pretty deep and baked…

More Kiko cream crush

I popped into te Kiko store the other day and came out with a couple more cream crush cream shadows, 07 and 16. Yes, I said I was not taken by any of the other colours offered (I already had 04 and 08), but they were at half price so I thought I’d get a…

MAC Pearled earth / Kiko cream crush 08

Some time ago I got this MAC eyeshadow, and I think I forgot to post about it. It is still potted so it must be after July when I went on a depotting frenzy. It’s from some LE or other and I don’t remember how I ran across a swatch of it on the internet,…

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance swatch comparisons

I like to do these exercises to see how new shades I get compare to (or combine with) other shades I already have. It has the downside that I might then decide I didn’t need the product in the first place 😉 I think in this case I’m relatively safe though. There are a number of…

Too awesome

I won’t post swatches because they’re all over the internet… I’ll see if I can find any other shadows for comparison swatches, since those are useful.

Matte neutral eyeshadow comparison swatches

Now I think all of these are “neutrals”, because if you ask me, true neutrals are white, true grey and black. So these are anything but, they are all touched by red/yellow (brown) and/or blue (purple) – well, the KVD palette has a white and a black. But these are known as neutrals out in…

Artdeco haul

Earlier this month, we brought my parents to Aachen and we had a nice walk around the city, which is very nice. Of course I also popped in Müller and dm for a moment. In dm I got the new bi-phase micellar from Garnier, and stocked up on haircare products. I cannot deal with the…

(Nearly) all my eyeshadows & blushes (+MAC haul)

Already last week I went on a depotting frenzy. To be honest, I hate singles. I never use them. Who even remembers how many singles they have and where they are stored? (even if I had them in drawers by colour). I always end up using my MAC palettes instead. I have 5 of the…

Femme Fatale Cosmetics – eyeshadows

Bone dust, fire opal, crystal guardian, cloud kingdom, floating gems, marauders, nexus, demon soul, golem and puzzle. Keywords from an RPG game? no, my first Femme Fatale Cosmetics loose eyeshadow order 🙂 love the names! on to the pics: I looked at tons of swatches online (of course including FFC’s ones), and read reviews, before…

MAC palettes

Yesterday I passed by the MAC store looking for a greyish brown for the brow. I mostly use a mix of Soba, Rummy and Showstopper, and wanted something lighter than Rummy but darker than Soba. I got Concrete. This led me to rearrange my palettes, of course ;°) so I took some pictures and put…
