Shiro Cosmetics Gloss - Swatch and Review - Alkahestry, Eye Contact, Flamethrower, Masterball and Mushroom

Shiro Cosmetics Gloss – Swatch and Review – Alkahestry, Eye Contact, Flamethrower, Masterball and Mushroom

About a month ago, Shiro released their new fantastic, custom option of creating a lipgloss out of any of their lip safe eyeshadows and blushes. Can you imagine the frenzy that set a lot of fans and bloggers in? I was pretty damn excited, because I ready to get ALL THE ORANGE, until I realised...

Performance Colors is a store on Etsy which was highly recommended to me by some friends to try out their cream shadows. Unfortunately the cream shadows did not work so well for me and my oily lids, however the lipsticks that Tiffany makes are a whole other story. I made an order in early 2012...

Fyrinnae Lip Lustre Review and Swatches – Masala, Romantique, Less Than Three, Sweetest Poison, Type A and Visual Kei

Fyrinnae, one of the most well known and loved indie cosmetics formulators, is a company I don’t really talk about much on my blog. To be honest, I don’t have all too many of their products, maybe a handful of shadows, pixie epoxy, some samples of their primers and the lip lustres. I guess I...

The Mindful Mushroom – Perfume review

Hey guys! Welcome to the first post of August (wow August already)! Not much happening on my end, I have been tempted to make some personal posts on here, but then end up not bothering to do so. Anyway, last night I ended up making a DIY light box (made it from an old carboard...
Naked Elements - Swatch and Review

Naked Elements – Swatch and Review

Naked Elements is an indie, mineral cosmetics company which can be found on Etsy, which are all vegan and use organic ingredients as well. I have never purchased from this store before, and also it’s my first time with mattes. So firsts all around I ordered 8 eyeshadow samples and 2 blush samples. Swatches All...

Disclaimer: I received these products free of charge to review. Nobody can purchase my opinion, even if you paid with 1 million Pugs and Tapirs. Each. Needless to say this review is unbiased and contains my opinion, which is honest, and is not expert. A couple of months ago, Jess Bee, the owner of Moon...

Willow Tree Minerals is a company I found on Etsy during a search for more mineral makeup, so I decided to give them a try. I decided to try 2 sample packs. I ordered 10 eyeshadows and 2 blushes. What first stood out to me with this shop was the photography. It’s so creatively, and...

Gel lipsticks are the latest creation from Morgana Cryptoria, and are definitely a new creation, and something lipstick junkies should try at least once. I ordered these quite a while ago, and unfortunately haven’t used them as much as I would like to. The gel formula of these don’t make it easy to use in...

This is the carry on from my review on Evil Shades from the other day where I was reviewing and swatching the lip products I had ordered. Now it’s the eyeshadows and blushes to get some love. I was going to swatch the spectrum pot samples, but I just couldn’t get the photos to show...

First post to mark 2012, and it’s a good ‘un A short while ago I placed a few orders with Evil Shades to try the bloggers pack (which was loaded with some extra goodies – thank you very much Andrea ) and I also ordered Padawan spectrum pot, a few full size lipsticks and a...

There’s a private/closed facebook group that I’ve been apart of for about 4-5 months now, and it’s been one of the best places I’ve ever ventured on the internet. It’s a community of makeup enthusiasts/artists/professionals/fragrance makers/artisans/all round excellent people, that have given me more than a glimpse into the world of indie cosmetic, fragrance and...

This is a review and swatch session that has been a long time coming, but I just kept having other things I had to do. However, I am glad to finally be putting up this post on Linnaeus Cosmetics. Linnaeus Cosmetics is run by Marin, who is a veterinary student and all round lover of all things...
