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. It didn’t look too bad swatched next to the regular HM 51 though, and I have my TBS shade adjusting drops anyway. I think it is still the…

Six discounted items, +

I went to the center yesterday and came back with a few things. It is difficult to resist the discounts 😉 and today I also got a couple of Essence brushes and an eyeshadow primer. 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…

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,…

TBS lightening drops and L’Oreal perfect match

This will be a bit of a comparison post since what’s the point otherwise?? I think the lightening drops will come in handy as winter approaches – for all those foundations which are a tad too dark. The top of my arm got quite tanned this summer since I only applied sunscreen on my face…

#18

Yesterday’s choice is a mix I made years ago. I started out with Nivea 97 Berry gloss. This was a jelly like polish and these, in darker colours, never work on me because of my deep ridges. I seem to have added a cream blue and some silver sparkle to it, or a sparkly very blue…
