Best Makeup of 2019!

2019 was a big year of decluttering and really pairing down my makeup collection in terms of keeping only the things I truly love. I wrote way less new makeup reviews, gave away a lot of makeup I didn't need and put way more use to the stuff I already had and loved. Here were… Continue reading Best Makeup of 2019!

Āether Beauty Amethyst Crystal Gemstone Palette

I've stepped back from writing as many makeup reviews because I started to feel like I was contributing to the very thing I don't like in beauty industry; consumerism. There are an excessive amount of new launches releasing constantly. It's incredibly wasteful and unrealistic to keep up with. I'm limiting my makeup collection to only… Continue reading Āether Beauty Amethyst Crystal Gemstone Palette

Pat McGrath Labs Eye Ecstasy Eyeshadow Palette: Sublime

I've been debating on trying out a Pat McGrath palette for a while now but couldn't get past the expensive price tag. We all know that price doesn't always equal quality but I've seen & heard people rave about this brand for years and when I saw they released the new Eye Ecstasy Eyeshadow Palettes… Continue reading Pat McGrath Labs Eye Ecstasy Eyeshadow Palette: Sublime

Alcone + Viseart The Downtown Eyeshadow Palette

After all these years of trying, testing & reviewing hundreds and hundreds of beauty products, I have just now come around to Viseart and I have totally been missing out! Viseart is one of the most relied on brands when it comes to pro makeup artistry. What stood out about the brand amongst most others… Continue reading Alcone + Viseart The Downtown Eyeshadow Palette

Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette

With all the constant newness in the makeup industry, it feels impossible to keep up (not to mention incredibly unaffordable!) I'm at the point where I'd rather have fewer high quality "staple" products vs. a bunch of the same thing/products that get minimal use. Less really is more. And although I'm like 4-5 years late… Continue reading Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette

Laura Mercier Hidden Gems Eye Shadow Palette

Although the Laura Mercier Hidden Gems Eye Shadow Palette has been out for a little while, it's new to me and caught my attention as soon as I saw it. Not too colorful.. not too neutral.. wearable jewel-tones that offer just enough color without being too much. The color story was inspired by the vivid… Continue reading Laura Mercier Hidden Gems Eye Shadow Palette

Stila Limited Edition Happy Hour Eye Shadow Palette

Aside from the infamous Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadows (which I am obsessed with) I have never tried any eyeshadows from Stila. However, as soon as I saw pictures of this palette - I was hooked. If you're someone who tends to stick with neutrals but wants a soft pop of color thats not… Continue reading Stila Limited Edition Happy Hour Eye Shadow Palette

Smashbox L.A. Cover Shot Palette

I've recommended the Smashbox Cover Shot Palettes since they first released 3 years or so ago and love that they offer such a big variety of palm-sized palettes with SO many different color stories in a high quality, reliable formula. When I saw they released this L.A. Cover Shot Palette, I was all about it.… Continue reading Smashbox L.A. Cover Shot Palette
