Here’s What I’m Wearing On My Face Today And Monday Musings

Wakey, wakey! It’s a bright, sunny Monday morning! How’s your day going so far? I’ve been up since 4:45AM trying to get this party started. I put up some really cute new curtains in my kitchen (posted ’em on my Instastories if you want to see), I did a little meal prep, got my work out in, had some TLC time with the puppy, did a load of laundry, did pics for the blog, and finally got ready to go to work. I feel a little tired today as it was a very long, busy weekend. We are still very muc...

MAC A Rose in Harlem & I Got a Man Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

A Rose in Harlem MAC A Rose in Harlem Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a vivid, medium-dark red with cooler, blue undertones and a satin sheen. It had good pigmentation that covered my lips evenly and sat well on them, though there was a hint of translucency. The lipstick had a slightly denser consistency, but it wasn’t stiff or difficult to work with, as the product had enough creaminess to it to glide over my lips comfortably. I...

Lethal Cosmetics Hysteria Collection Reviews & Swatches

Catatonic Lethal Cosmetics Catatonic Pressed Powder Shadow ($6.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a light-medium, caramel brown with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had an incredibly soft, silky-smooth texture but had some powderiness to it, so you’ll want to use a lighter touch to avoid fallout or getting too much excess product kicked up in the pan. It had opaque color coverage that blended out well along the edges. It staye...

Lethal Cosmetics Alchemy Collection Reviews & Swatches

Calcination Lethal Cosmetics Calcination Pressed Powder Shadow ($6.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a light, purple-taupe with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The consistency was soft, velvety, and finely-milled but was moderately powdery so there was excess product kicked up in the pan, though not too much fallout. It wore nicely for eig...

NABLA Cosmetics Shine Theory Lip Glosses Reviews & Swatches (Part 2 of 2)

RSVP NABLA Cosmetics RSVP Shine Theory Lip Gloss ($15.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium-dark, plummy red with warm undertones and lots of copper and gold pearl throughout. It had medium coverage (and wasn’t described as sheer) that covered my lips without streaking but had some product that sank into my deeper lip lines enough to be noticeable in person. The gloss had a smooth, non-sticky, more gel-like texture that was comfortable to we...

The consistency was more gel-like, so it felt plusher and thicker (but lightweight and non-sticky), though it wasn’t thick enough prevent some of the texture from the sparkles to come through when I pressed my lips together. ...

Borealis Clionadh Borealis Matte Eyeshadow ($4.50 for 0.06 oz.) is a brighter, light-medium purple with subtle,w arm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had good color payoff in a single layer, though the consistency was somewhat powdery, so it sheered out a bit when applied to bare skin. There was also light fallout, even when I was careful to tap off excess product. The product was blendable and workable without primer, but...

Sephora Orchid & Garnet Lip Last Matte Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Orchid Sephora Orchid Lip Last Matte Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a rich, mediumd-ark purple with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. This particular shade took longer to dry down than most, so it didn’t look full-on matte until 15 to 20 minutes after application, though it was transfer-resistant before then (after about five minutes). It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly in a single layer. The...

Artist Couture Gold Digger Diamond Glow Powder Review & Swatches

Gold Digger Artist Couture Gold Digger Diamond Glow Powder ($27.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a bright, white gold with a “cooler” gold sheen paired with a metallic finish. It seemed to have a transparent base, so it was more shimmer/pearl than it was base product. As a result, the color payoff was more semi-opaque and buildable, but at an angle, it read almost opaque based on the way it shimmered and reflected the light. The consistency w...

Here’s What I Did This 4 of July and Here’s The Sales I Hit Up

Good Morning! How was your weekend? I hope you had a lovely one! It was nice that the 4th fell on the weekend but kind of crappy that we’re all still quarantining here (friends, family, and my BF who got back from CA last week)! But it’s ok! I made a list of things I wanted to do by myself over the weekend and I had fun even if it wasn’t with a big BBQ, friends, and family. I was a little uncomfortable with the sheer amount of people walking around upstate this weekend without masks. At on...

Melt Cosmetics She’s in Parties Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

She's in Parties Melt Cosmetics She’s in Parties 8-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($48.00 for 0.58 oz.) is a new, likely-permanent palette that takes the brand’s original stack (which included four shades) and extends the color story with four new shades in a slim, rectangular palette form.
