Tarte Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette First Impressions

So last week I decided to finally dip into the Tarte Swamp Queen palette by Grav3yardgirl. I’ve had it for over a month but since I bought my friend one as well for her birthday, I had to stash it away. It was such a mission to get this palette from Tarte but I’ve learnt my lesson. I initially ordered it during their Black Friday sale where they had 30% off. I ordered it along with a second palette for my friend and a limited edition lipstick and lipliner set.

Juvia’s Place Nubian 2 Eyeshadow Palette – Review & Swatches

Hiya bellas, So I’m starting off the reviews with the Juvia’s Place Nubian 2 Eyeshadow palette. Why this one? Because it was hands down the best makeup item I tried for 2016. I was shocked and surprised at just how much I’ve fallen in love with this baby because to be honest, it was not even on my wishlist. Janet from Pink Cosmetics contacted me a few months ago asking if I would like to review the palette. Once we established that all the ingredients were kosher, cruelty free and vegan, I gladly accepted. Background If you don’t know about…
