swatches: hello kitty charmmy eyeshadow stick
I spied the Hello Kitty collection recently at Sephora. As expected, it seems to be pretty popular with a lot of people checking it out, so I was only able to get away with swatches for the Charmmy Eyeshadow Sticks—for now, that is. Cupcake (pale gold-beige), Birthday Cake (light tan/bronze), Teacup (medium bronze), Cookies (warm brown), Sour Apple (gold-green), Fish Bowl (icy blue) ...

This mysterious dark teal packed with fine shimmer is one of my favourite polishes to wear, and not just for the compliments I receive :> I’m on day 3 of wearing it here.
wishlist wednesday: buxom big & healthy lip sticks
I’ve become a fan of lipsticks and glosses in pencil form since buying Quo’s and GOSH’s versions and I want more. Enter Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Sticks. I swatched them a while back and really fell for the lovely colours and smooth texture. While it doesn’t look like your conventional lipstick, they are described as doing the job of one—and more, by providing the...
urban decay 24/7 jackpot
First off, it’s been a while since I posted a review. Sorry everyone. I’ve been pretty low on free time/energy lately and reviews take a long time to write, photograph and edit. Thank you for following and reading :> I’ve loved the 24/7 liners from afar for a while now, swatching and admiring their smooth application and vibrant colour before—with a heavy...
Anonymous asked: Hey! So I live in the states but I'm moving back to Canada soon and I was wondering what kind of brands are available there? Any particular favorites, particularly from the drugstore(I won't be near a Sephora in my new home- the kiss of death!). Thank you so much for any suggestions ahead of time :)

annabelle glitterama liquid liner swatches
Annabelle’s Glitterama Liquid Liner was a previous Wishlist Wednesday item after I swatched the lovely bright green Kryptonite: the glitter is really eye-catching and the colour had a lot of punch. Well, I finally swatched them and I hope you find them lovely too! Left to right: Plutonium (silver), Solar Flare (gold), Violet Venus (cool pink-purple), Kryptonite (yellow-green), Celestial...

wishlist wednesday: paperbag pencil skirt
I’ve always had a secret OL (office lady) side that loves the look of blouses and pencil skirts. But I never actually wore pencil skirts til I started working in an office. Now I’m even more in love with them <3 I love classic styles and fabrics with interesting details. Cue this Sparkle & Fade Menswear Paperbag Skirt on Urban Outfitters. I dig the pleated...
My first ORLY polish! I was in a really glittery/shimmery mood during the holidays and picked up this rose-gold polish because I was mesmerized by the foil finish. Depending on the lighting, sometimes I don’t really see the pink in Rage and it looks more silver or lavender. (With flash) PS Does anybody else think of the ORLY? owl when they see this brand?
wishlist wednesday: clean pencil perfume set
I am very intrigued by these fat little 0.17 oz perfume pencils from CLEAN; I’ve seen solid perfume in cute tins and rings, but never as a pencil! The set includes three pencils in Fresh Laundry, Ultimate, and Provence. If you haven’t had a chance to smell fragrances from the CLEAN line, they’re exactly as the brand name would suggest: fresh, light, and of course, clean. At about...
happy (belated) new year!
I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday season! As for me, it was a bit busier than usual, but it was great to see family and friends I hadn’t seen in a while. My NYE was pretty hectic—we went out and it was super cold night to be out in a short dress, but it was a good experience and fun times. I was really happy with the look I created with the glittery silver and dark grey...
boys-letter asked: Hello! :3 Lately I've been interested in buying some bare minerals foundation. Do you have any personal experience, or know anyone who has used it? I've heard that it does wonders for acne, do you perhaps know if it's true? And any tips about finding the correct colour, etc? Thank you so much, and I hope you have a great new year! :)
