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. When the name “Lidstar” appeared there about a year ago, I surmised that Glossier was developing a shimmery eyeshadow. That product… Read More Glossier Lidstar Eyeshadows in Cub, Fawn, and Moon

NYX Liquid Suede and Suede Matte Lip Liner in Brooklyn Thorn

One of the best lipstick formulas that I’ve discovered in 2016 is the NYX Liquid Suede formula.

(These containers remind me of portholes on a ship.) Look, Milani’s new Bella eyeshadow singles are perfectly decent. I’d give them a B… Read More La Vita è (Not Exactly) Bella: New Milani Eyeshadows in Bella Taupe and Bella Rouge

The Only Tattoos I’ll Ever Have: Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadows

All right, that title is a bit of an exaggeration. I’m not completely sure I’ll never get a tattoo. But given my indecisiveness, fear of commitment, and habitual buyer’s remorse, I can say the odds are very slim. I do, however, own five Maybelline Color Tattoo eyeshadows. I’m not the first person to consider the… Read More The Only Tattoos I’ll Ever Have: Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadows
