Review & Swatches: Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Liquid Foundation in Nude


Hourglass recently released the Vanish Seamless Finish Liquid Foundation and I was so excited because the stick version is one of my all time favorite foundations. On my dry skin, the Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick glides onto face and looks absolutely seamless like the name suggests. Even though I love it, I'm aware that people with more oily skin don't like it as much since it can slip around. Unlike the stick, the liquid version is supposed to have higher coverage and with a waterproof, sweat-proof, and transfer-proof formula that's better for those with normal to oily skin types.

I was able to get a sample in Nude with a recent Sephora order, but the full sized bottle contains 0.84 oz / 25 mL of product and retails for $56. It also comes in a nice bottle with a pump and Hourglass claims that you only need half a pump to get full coverage.

Review & Swatches: Makeup Revolution Reloaded Palette in Division


I was originally so excited for the Makeup Revolution Reloaded Palette in Division because people were talking about how it's similar in shades to the Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette. With this palette being only $7, I decided to take the risk. Division contains 15 shades for a total of 0.58 ounces and can be purchased through the links below - 

As a side note, I've also seen this palette referenced as the Iconic Division Palette too.

Review & Swatches: L'oreal Colour Riche Paradise Enchanted Eyeshadow Palette


It's actually been some time since I was excited about a drugstore eyeshadow palette. There's many wonderful and amazing budget beauty products out there, but I haven't had the greatest luck with mainstream drugstore eyeshadow palettes. I'm not even sure why I was so drawn to this palette, but the colors looked beautiful and fit the trend of rose gold / red / warm palettes that have been so popular lately. The L'oreal Colour Riche Paradise Enchanted Eyeshadow Palette contains 0.25 ounces of product and retails for around $15 through the links below -

Review & Swatches: Chanel Les 4 Ombres in Légèreté et Expérience


Chanel released a new palette on Black Friday and it's a beautiful matte quad reminiscent of my favorite Chanel Palette - Candeur et Expérience. I even wrote a review of it about a year ago here! Personally, I feel like Légèreté et Expérience is the lighter sister of Candeur et Expérience but it's mostly because there are two light base shades instead of an almost even gradient of three browns and a red. The Chanel Les 4 Ombres in Légèreté et Expérience is a limited edition palette that retails for $61 and as of today (12/8/2018), is only available on the Chanel website here.

Swatches | Dipping into Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomades


I've been using the Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow on and off since its launch, but I never really thought about writing a post about it until now. I remember not liking this product when it first came out, but I'm pretty sure it's because I was using way too much.

If you're one of my blog followers, it's been awhile. Hi! I've essentially moved over to mostly doing eye / makeup looks on Instagram and I've found that the DipBrow is one of my preferred products to use. In real life, I heavily rely on tinted brow gels like the Glossier Boy Brow though since they're easier and quicker to use.

Review & Swatches: Esqido Gel Eyeliner Pencils in Black and Brown


I definitely fell off of blogging. My bad.

Anyway, the Esqido team very kindly reached out to send me the Gel Eyeliners in Black and Brown* for free so that I could use and review them. If you're a long time follower, you might've noticed that the Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayons are some of my HG liners. I have watery and somehow also dry eyes and the MJ liners stayed amazing and awesome through all of my eye issues. Even so, I'm always on the search for good eye liners and gel eye pencils have stayed my preferred choice.

The Esqido Gel Eyeliner Pencils retail for $16  for 0.5 grams of product and as of 10/28/2018, they're on sale for $12 each as a special launching price. There's also currently only two colors - Black and Brown. Esido's claims include intense color payoff, ultra-smooth glide, and waterproof, long lasting lightweight formula.
