Mini Overview & Swatches: Holika Holika Piece Matching Shadows


I recently went super crazy over the Holika Holika Piece Matching Shadows and ordered 16 of them in all the finishes. I was originally only going to get the Jelly finishes, but all of them are pretty inexpensive and so I got more. The Holika Holika x Gudetama Palettes I currently have are also pretty good and so I felt like I wasn't going to risk too much by buying more. I also have impulse buying issues but let's just gloss over that. Each shade retails for about $5 and I bought them on Jolse.

Review & Swatches: I'm Meme I'm Tic Toc Cushion Velvet Tints


Memebox recently reached out to me to send me the full collection of I'm Meme I'm Tic Toc Cushion Velvet Tints* for free to test out and create swatches for. Gotta be honest - these tints were kind of facing a losing battle since my lips have been in a terrible situation lately. I found out what was sparking my lip allergy and I went on a family vacation to Las Vegas. Both of those things made my lips irritated and super dry. Surprisingly, these cream lip tints worked super well even under those conditions! The I'm Meme Tic Toc Cushion Lip Tints have already been released on the Korean Memebox website, but they'll be available to purchase on the USA Memebox website on April 18th.

2017 Favorites: March


March was kind of a whirlwind month for me for both my personal and work life. I ended up going with more basic looks like lighter bases and also rediscovering a favorite in my collection. My makeup was pretty streamlined and relaxed during March, but I'm excited to play with new things again in April since the Sephora sale should be happening soon.

Makeup Bag Monday #2 ft. 3CE, Pony Effect, and Kylie Cosmetics


For my last Makeup Bag Monday post, I think I included too many products and not enough swatches and so it became super wordy. I still didn't do enough swatches, but hopefully it's not as wordy and long? For the past week and a half, I pulled out a palette I've had for awhile but the other products were all relatively new to my collection. Two of them actually just came in the day I decided to choose the products for this post!

Collection Clear Out #3 ft. Empties & Toss Outs


As mentioned here and there, I'm trying to control my spending but I'm also trying to use up or throw out what I've collected but haven't used in awhile or don't enjoy anymore. As time has gone by, I've found better products or I've neglected some for so long that they've gone bad. I'm slowly but surely going to cut down a bit more so that it's just slightly above a normal amount of makeup!

Review & Swatches: Pony Effect Makeup Arti-stick Highlighter in Dream-Like


I've recently fallen in love with cream stick highlighters and it's all due to the Pony Effect Makeup Arti-stick Highlighter in Dream-Like. It officially moved me from loving liquid highlighters to creams. I bought this in one of the sets that included the Pony Effect Pebble Blender and Mirage Highlighter in Lucid Dream, which is also one of my favorite highlighters to use. The Arti-stick in Dream-Like retails for $28 by itself and contains 10 grams of product.
