Madd Cat Monthly Box 1 – Review & Swatches – Bluegrass, Infinite Ammo, Ever After, Raven Feathers, Blue Lagoon

The idea of monthly subscription boxes has always excited me to a degree, but I’m always let down because I can never seem to find one that offers products that I can actually use and that won’t misalign with my cosmetic ethics. The only vegan and eco-friendly subscription boxes I have found have been terribly...
Kiss My Sass cosmetics - Lip Glazes - swatches and review

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...

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...

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...

Shiro Cosmetics custom lip glosses Part 2: 1-Up, Gelato Beach, Oktorok and Philosphers Stone

A few week back I posted my first experience with Shiro’s custom glosses, and a few days after I made that post my second order of custom glosses arrived! Already impressed with my first order I was too excited to get playing with these. After seeing on the Shiro facebook fan page that customers were...

Magic Potion has been incorrectly labelled as Ocean Potion. Sorry for any confusion! Set 2 in my swatchapolooza for Black Rose Minerals. Believe me when I say there are many more coming….I won’t be as spammy as the blog a day challenge, but I’ll try to space them apart so as to not bombard with...

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...

Black Rose Minerals swatch series – Insect, Blazing Star, Penelope, Bittersweet, Icarus, Dollface, Confused, Copperhead

About a month back I decided to get started on swatching my stash. It’s going to be a slow and very tedious process, but I do want to get it done. In the months to come, this is going to look more like a swatch blog then anything else, and I hope it doesn’t appear...
