Quick Update

•••
Just a quick update. I'm behind on posting my looks, as I've been crazy busy (and I'll be crazy busy all weekend). Thank goodness for the reviews I've written out ahead of time for you, or there'd be radio silence. I'll be trying to get them up soon. Don't forget about asking Skincare Questions here. Grey's So Sakura contest ends today, so if you want to[...]

Linneaus Cosmetics Review

•••
Last month I purchased some eye shadow samples from Linneaus Cosmetics. They're a relatively new company on Etsy. I'd seen them advertising on my blog and the owner, Marin, had emailed me to say hi. I chose the sample pack of 5 shadows, and Marin threw in an extra sample and a full size so that I could see how she packages her full size shadows. Marin is[...]

The Website Claims: help improve skin firmness, protect skin, diminish fine lines and wrinkles[...]

Tulips for Spring

•••
I wore a lot of pink today, and they actually reminded me of tulips. I love hot pink & fuchsia lips and I think they look AWESOME with my new hair. Today I used Nyx's black label lipstick in Hot Pink and I put Inglot's 541 gloss on top. While it didn't show up well in the pictures, it gave a nice blue-violet sheen.   Al[...]

Ray asked me to do a dark peacock look. How could I refuse? So this is what I came up with. I used a lot of Inglot.   Contacts: Geo Angel Violet Eyes: TFSI Concrete Minerals Prier - lower lash line Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy - lid Inglot 498 - lid Inglot 67 - lower crease Inglot 70 - upper crease Inglot 351 - browbone Ing[...]
