Kitrinophiles Unite: ColourPop Uh-Huh Honey Palette

I’ve always had an affinity for the color yellow. Maybe it’s because my birthstone is topaz, or because yellow is one of the least popular colors and I love a polarizing underdog, or because mustard and chartreuse are surprisingly flattering to my cool-toned complexion, or because lemon bars are my favorite dessert and, fittingly, the… Read More Kitrinophiles Unite: ColourPop Uh-Huh Honey Palette

Glossier Lidstar Eyeshadows in Cub, Fawn, and Moon

I purchased this product with store credit earned through my Glossier affiliate link. I am not a Glossier rep. Avid Glossier followers know that the best source for upcoming releases is Glossier’s trademarks page.
