I’m so excited to share the products I loved and reached for the month of January! I believe I stated in my Insta Stories that I would be shopping my stash quite differently this year. Last year, I forced myself to rotate things after a week, even if I was thoroughly enjoying them. This year, I decided not to rotate things I was truly enjoying so that I could use them as much as I needed before I swapped them out for something different. Continue reading
One of the things I told myself I would do in 2019 is shop my stash more and take a backseat to palette buying. As you might be able to tell from this blog and my Instagram page, I haven’t been doing that good of a job so far. However, when I saw Melt Cosmetics release the brand new Blueprint Stack, I immediately drooled over it. I knew this was something I really wanted. The swatches, the presentation of it, and the tutorials/looks I’ve seen on it so far have been beautiful. Personally, blue shadows aren’t shades that I reach for often, so I felt that shopping my stash for similar shades would be the better option for myself.
I might be in the minority when I tell you that when I saw the Lime Crime Venus XL II palette on Trendmood’s Instagram, I was immediately intrigued. The green colors, which I rarely reach for, called to me. So, I ordered! I have used this palette a few times and came up with 4 different looks, 2 of which I will show here. After using it for quite some time, I’m ready to give my thoughts on this palette.
I didn’t think I would review the NYX Swear By It palette, but after buying it and talking about it briefly on my Insta Stories , I had several questions on it and began to see it pop up on lots of YouTubers channels! YouTubers Tati and Allie Glines have recently reviewed/used this palette on their YouTube channel as well as a few others. The only person I had seen talk about this palette was Kathleen Lights, but this was back in July of 2018! Her makeup look definitely inspired this purchase. I cant wait to tell you all about it!
In 2018, Milani surprised many makeup lovers by releasing two incredible eyeshadow palettes: Most Loved Mattes (review here) and Bold Obsessions (review here). Because of their success and popularity, I can only speculate, they went ahead and released two more of these 12 pan palettes! Today I’m here to tell you all about Pure Passion!
I thought this would be a fun post to look back on and reflect on what eyeshadow products I bought last year, whether I still have them, how I feel about them, etc. I decided to do this with only Sephora purchases as I was able to go far back and see what I had picked up. Are you ready to dive in with me?! Hope so!
I am actually quite surprised that I didn’t buy too many palettes the first 7 months of the year… wait a minute. Actually, I’m not surprised. I know that I tend to stay away from Sephora the first few months of the year because I spend my holidays buying tons of makeup. Thankfully, that did not happen this year, but I remember doing that years prior. Either way, I wanted to make this post to show myself just how much I buy and hopefully talk myself out of buying so many unnecessary eyeshadow palettes because I don’t need them all.
For my first post of 2019, I decided to do a review on the brand new NARS Skin Deep Eyeshadow Palette! I’d seen this palette posted on the NARS Instagram page, but decided to wait until i could find some swatches done by someone before buying. After seeing swatches, I decided to purchase this using my Ulta points!
The Urban Decay Elements palette was one I had my eye on as soon as I saw promo pics. I’m a huge fan of these mostly shimmer palettes – I’ve got plenty of matte shades in my collection that I can pair them with so I don’t necessarily need an all-in-one palette. Urban Decay was very generous in gifting this to me so I was excited to receive it and decided to review it for you!
Hello everyone! I am here today to provide my thoughts on 2 of 4 the Morphe x Jaclyn Hill vault palettes that I’ve been testing for the past two or three weeks. I ordered all 4 of them as soon as they became available at Ulta. I could have gone the Morphe route, but I love to buy things from Ulta if they are available there for the sole purpose of accumulating points to use as rewards later. I decided to get all 4 because they were all very appealing to me.
I think we were all pleasantly surprised when Sephora announced that they would be having a Beauty Insider Appreciation Event Haul that included 20% off for VIB Rouge, 15% off for VIBs, and 10% for BI. They only have this event 2 times a year: during the Spring and during the holidays, so this one left us all wondering… huh?! But we’ll take it!
