Give Me Glow Vintage Rose Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Vintage Rose Give Me Glow Vintage Rose 8-Pan Pressed Pigment Palette ($34.00 for 0.8 oz.) includes three matte eyeshadows and five shimmer eyeshadows, which are all oversized (almost double typical, single full-sized shades!) housed in a cardboard palette. The eyeshadows were very pigmented, easy to work with, and lasted for eight hours. A few shades were more softly-pressed and had a little fallout during application at “worst.” ...

Chanel Orange Enigmatique & Rouge Paradoxal Rouge Allure Ink Liquid Lip Colours Review & Swatches

Orange Enigmatique (838) Chanel Orange Enigmatique (838) Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colour ($40.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a light-medium brown with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage, which was closer to how it was marketed compared to other shades in the range.

Pat MTHRSHP MEGA: Celestial Odyssey has arrived today for Holiday 2021 and I’m terribly excited. I’ve been veering away from eyeshadow palettes lately because I promised myself I’d use what I have. I have so many it’s a little absurd as I’m sure many of you probably have been doing the same but I did give in to the Pat Mcgrath MTHRSHP MEGA: Celestial Odyssey. I ordered it this morning with the code MEGA10 (this is also the password to get into the site for VIP access) which got me 10% off. ...

It had a strong, visible shift that was easily detected on the eye. The texture was moderately dense, smooth, and slightly firmer in the pan compared to other shades in the range, though it applied we...

ColourPop Strike a Pose & Alt Rock Fresh Kiss Lip Cremes Reviews & Swatches

Strike a Pose ColourPop Strike a Pose Fresh Kiss Lip Crème ($8.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a darker pink with moderate, warm undertones and a cream finish, which took an hour or so to develop into a more soft matte finish. The color payoff was opaque in a single layer, so I’d recommend using only one side of the applicator to get sheerer coverage if desired. The texture felt smooth, more velvety and lightweight, which ensured it was comfortab...

Scrunchie ColourPop Scrunchie Fresh Kiss Lip Crème ($8.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a rich, deeper red with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and mousse-like, which gave it a velvety feel that was spreadable and comfortable to wear. The liquid lipstick had full color coverage in a single layer of product, so you’ll have to use less to achieve the buildable coverage marketed. It lasted well for si...

Clarins Brown Sugar Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Brown Sugar (04) Clarins Brown Sugar (04) 4-Color Eyeshadow Palette ($43.00 for 0.1 oz.) includes two more shimmery shades, one satin shade, and one matte shade. They had medium to opaque color coverage, were fairly easy to apply and blend out, and lasted around eight hours. The brand claimed that their eyeshadows would last for 12 hours, though, which I could only achieve with primer underneath. Ingredients ...

Chanel Fall 2021 Ombre Premiere Laques Reviews & Swatches

Lame Ivoire (39) Chanel Lame Ivoire (39) Ombre Premiere Laque ($36.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a darker, champagne gold with warm, golden tones but not to the point of leaning orange/peach. It had a smooth, fluid consistency that was slightly watery initially, but then it dried down to a more transfer-resistant finish. I liked applying this best with a fingertip or a fluffy brush for a sheerer wash of color. For higher opacity, I’d recommend...

Anastasia Iced Out Powder Highlighter Review & Swatches

Iced Out Anastasia Iced Out HighlighterAnastasia Iced Out Highlighter ($34.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a pale, white gold that flashed light-medium, more yellowy-gold with a metallic sheen. The lighter base didn’t seem to translate when applied to my skin, so it appeared a little warmer than I had anticipated. The texture was moderately-dense, firmer but not stiff to work with, and felt consistent with the gel-powder hybrid formula it was. Yo...

The texture was smooth, slightly more loosely-pressed, but it had good glide, which helped everything apply evenly and adhere smoothly without fallout. It had opaque color payoff that stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.FURTHER READING: Formula Over...

ColourPop 411 & BB Spice Fresh Kiss Lip Cremes Reviews & Swatches

411 ColourPop 411 Fresh Kiss Lip Crème ($8.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a light, pinky-coral with moderate, warm undertones and a cream finish. It took an hour or so of wear before it wore down to a true “soft matte” finish. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and velvety, so it spread readily but didn’t feel as emollient/wet as other liquid formulas. It was fairly forgiving of lip texture and lip lines, which was noteworthy for this type of...

ColourPop Reflection, Touch the Sky, Colors of the Wind, Down in New Orleans Super Shock Shadows Reviews & Swatches

Reflection ColourPop Reflection Super Shock Shadow is a darker, coppery-brown base with flecks of fine red and gold sparkle throughout. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied somewhat unevenly as the base seemed to clump up a bit, so it was harder to get a really nice, even layer that didn’t look unblended. The texture was more emollient than the average shade within this formula as well. It lasted decently for nine hours be...

Here’s 3 Things I Hate About Myself And How I Make Them Better

This may sound vain but I work hard. I never take on anything unless I’m putting 500% into it and pumping the volume up to 10. Work, hobbies, life, friends, family, whatever it is I always give it my all. This is one thing I can confidently say I like about myself. But for every one thing I like about myself, there are two million other things I hate. My list of self-hate is huge. Here are 3 things I hate about myself and here’s how I make them better. 1.
