Morphe x Kathleenlights Palette Review & Swat...

Today I thought I’d share with you the gorgeous Morphe x Kathleenlights palette. I’m sure by now most of you know who Kathleen Fuentes (yep that’s her real name) is or are subscribed to her channel because she is one of the best YouTubers out there. I love watching her videos even though at times she can talk your ear off. Thank gosh for fast forward buttons. She’s collaborated with the likes of ColourPop, OFRA (you can read my review and see swatches here) and most recently with Makeup Geek. She also has her own nail polish line with the…

Juvia’s Place Nubian 2 Eyeshadow Palette ...

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…

Wishlist Wednesday – Tarte Holiday Sets 2016...

With throngs of holidays sets being released by brands each week, I can’t help but lust over some of them. After experiencing sub-par, mediocre workmanship in this holiday collection last year, I’ve been skeptical to purchase any holiday sets thus far. I’ve been brainwashed into thinking the items are made in bulk on the other side of the world to save costs because they know people NEED to buy gifts for their loved ones. I know all items are made in bulk in factories all over the world, but hey, I’m trying to change my perception. I’ve seen so many gorgeous new…

NYX Week – NYX Strobe of Genius Illuminating...

Oh wee *rubbing hands excitedly*, do I have a pretty poppy to show you today. As I mentioned in my NYX liquid lipstick comparison post here yesterday, I picked up the NYX Lingerie in Exotic from fellow beauty blogger Azraa from Prettifulblog. Along with it I picked up this beauty. The NYX Strobe of Genius Illuminating Palette. You know I usually like to have my highlight so popping it’s visible from space but not anymore. I don’t know what changed or when but recently I’ve been toning things down a bit. Instead of the ‘BAM in your face’/’cheekbones for days’ look,…
