Review & Swatches: MCC Accent Waterproof Eyeliner in Accent Black | #YSBEAUTYBOX17


Yesstyle recently reached out to me to see if I was interested in their Blogger Beauty Box and of course I said "Yes!" I received full sized products and some samples for free and was asked to review at least one of the products in the box. I tried out the full sized products, but I ended up choosing the MCC Accent Waterproof Eyeliner in Accent Black* to write the review on! Even though the other items were lovely, I just found myself really reaching for this eyeliner almost everyday. There is 0.35 grams of product and retails for $4.90 on the Yesstyle website here!

Feeling Like A Dark Star


I was going to do a Spring Sale at Sephora Haul post, but I ended up doing a last minute post and I couldn't wait any longer to talk about the gorgeous Pat McGrath Labs Dar Star 006 Kit in Ultraviolet Blue. I was honestly not going to get it because of the high price, but I think the adrenaline of a sale and a gorgeous blue eyeshadow made me impulse buy it. I've also been really into glossy eyes lately and so the gorgeous gloss with violet, teal, and blue shimmer. The whole kit retails for $130 and includes pigments, an eye gloss, black kohl liner, and a blending brush.

This post is not going to be a review and is more for swatches and some eye looks. Pat McGrath's products and kits always run out so quickly and so I wanted to get those swatches out there as soon as possible with some brief thoughts on each item.

Review & Swatches: Marc Jacobs Beauty Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter


Influenster recently sent me the Marc Jacobs Beauty Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter for free  to test and review and oh boy! It's gorgeous! This highlighter came out as part of Marc Jacob's Coconut Collection and it's described as a "golden peach" gel/liquid highlighter. Besides using it as a highlighter, this product can also be mixed in with other base products to create an all over subtle dewy look. There are 0.8 ounces / 24 mL of product and retails for $44.

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.
