Orchid Series – Coral Orchid

Orchids are my favorite flowers. I’m starting an Orchid Series and to kick off the series I’m beginning with Coral Orchids. From what I can tell they’re called Vanda Orchids. Orchids have such diversity! That’s why I thought they’d make a great series. […]

Makeup Wars – Battle of the Taupes

I know some of you love taupes! All the Taupes! I’m in a new group called Makeup Wars and for our inaugural war, we’re doing a Battle of the Taupes! I raided my makeup collection for some of the colors that I thought fell into the category of taupe. I am not an expert on taupes, mind you, but I have come to appreciate them.

My taupe of choice for this war is Fyrinnae Damn Paladins. It’s described as a soft satiny taupe with a gentle blue highlight. […]

Nyx Black Label Hot Pink vs. MAC Candy Yum-Yum – Dupes?

I’ve said before that I felt like Nyx Black Label Lipstick in Hot Pink was a very close dupe for MAC Candy Yum-Yum. I wanted to show you the two colors side by side today with pictures taken from my new camera. To me, the colors are very close. The finish is different, as Candy Yum-Yum is matte and Hot Pink is more of a creamy, shiny finish. Hot Pink looks like it is a hair darker in certain lighting. But to me, they’re very, very close. […]
