Mixed Feelings: A Selection of Products

Monday, September 16, 2019

Good afternoon! Today I have a spread of six products that I don't love but I wouldn't say I hated either. They're somewhere in the middle, but unsatisfactory enough that I wouldn't repurchase any of them.


Natasha Denona Mini Nude Palette

Saturday, September 14, 2019



Natasha Denona released a mini quint last December and I'm only now getting around to writing a review. I had saved the Mini Nude palette for traveling during April & May and since it was the only eye shadow I brought, by the time we returned home I was a little tired of seeing the same five shades.

10 Favorite Eyeshadows That Are Discontinued or Hard to Find

Brand Overview: Mizuho Brush

Thursday, August 29, 2019


I first started adding Mizuho brushes to my CDJapan cart two, maybe three years back. I liked them enough to buy a brush at a time but there were hits and misses in the range which kept me from wanting to make a big haul. Over the years I've ended up a handful of brushes, enough to do a bit of an overview.


Review: Viseart Neutral Mattes 2 Milieu

Sunday, August 25, 2019


A few weeks ago, I ordered the new Viseart Neutral Mattes 2 Milieu Palette when it launched at Muse Beauty Pro.  Muse Beauty Pro had a 15% sale going on that really appealed to me, since I don't spend much at Sephora so it's unlikely I'll reach Rouge 20% anytime soon. 15% is as good as I'm going to get. I didn't spend much time debating it (I never do with Viseart!) and it arrived just a few days later.
