Kiss My Sass cosmetics – Lip Glazes – swatches and review

Not a fan of sticky, ultra shiny “my lips are made of shiny plastic” lip glosses? Neither am I. I just don’t like how they make the lips look unnaturally devoid of natural texture (no, I don’t think chapped lips look attractive, but seeing the natural lip lines we all have and not have them...
8 Bit Cosmetics - Brassy Bits Collection - Swatch + Review

8 Bit Cosmetics – Brassy Bits Collection – Swatch + Review

This is the first new brand that I’ve tried in some while. I became a little put off trying new companies a few months ago due to hearing about various indie brands doing varioud dodgy things. So it’s taken me a little while to get back in to the swing of  ‘trying something new’. 8...

Meow Meow Meow Collection from Black Rose Minerals – Swatches

Are you a cat person? Sometimes I think I am because of the copious amounts of sleeping I can achieve on a weekend, but then I see a pug and I know that I’m a dog person, or maybe I’m just a pug person? Regardless, even if you aren’t a cat person this collection will...

Had a terrific week with D and his sister in the city. So many great shopping trips and awesome food outings. Didn’t get a chance to take photos, but did manage to pick up some great finds, such as finding SugarBaby products! I can’t believe I had found anything from them, considering the last time...

I decided to combine today’s swatch project post in an effort to prevent spamming you lovely people. I don’t mean to! I just have quite a few things to post >.< So today’s post is VERY PHOTO HEAVY, so please keep that in mind. I won’t keep you for too long as there’s so many...

Just some quick notes: Ultraviolence is an interesting finish. It’s almost like a semi matte, so do not usee this over a product like Pixie Epoxy, because the colour dramatically darkens. I’ve just swatched over a primer and the colour pulls up just slightly darker than it appears in the jar. To make the colour...

I keep talking about this swatch project, it’s honestly nothing more than an organisation exercise to help me declutter all my makeup I’ve been buying indie for about 2 years now, and when I first started buying I was buying lots at a time, so naturally I’ve accumulated a hoarde, and there are some...

Robin of Movie Trollop tagged a bunch of us to do the 3 minute makeup video challenge and I thought I would try. I was a little scared making a video, but it turned out not so bad at the end, and gave me the bug to want to make more videos haha! I don’t...

On to set 3 of my Black Rose Minerals swatches. There’s about 4-5 more sets to go. I wasn’t kidding when I said I own more BRM then I do any other brand Tonight I’m posting the photos of this set of swatches of the following colours: Nessie, Starlight, Oracle, Papyrus, Death Valley, Were Me...
SOTD #4 Carny Wedding by Darling Clandestine

SOTD #4 Carny Wedding by Darling Clandestine

Carefully blended and infused by me in small batches in vintage glass wine bottles, this fragrance begins butter candy sweet and mellows on the skin to resiny wood and honeyed nectar. A multitude of different scent elements and weeks of methodical alchemy make Carny Wedding no ordinary scented oil mix-it’s a truly inimitable fragrance. Carny...

A few months ago when I blogged a FOTD in which I was tired and had no sleep, I was complaining about the lines under my eyes and how I felt a little scared that time was starting to catch up (LMFAO I am 25, I can be dramatic at times), so a few days...

Did you know that Solstice Scents creates more than beautifully intriguing and fascinating perfumes? They also offer skincare products as well. I haven’t seen the skincare products discussed much outside of the Solstice Scents forums, but I’ve always wanted to try. I was quite happy with just using the witch hazel toner I was buying...
