Review: YSL Couture Palette in No. 04 Saharienne



Thanks to a kind friend, I ordered one of the new YSL Couture Palettes last week from Bergdorf's. There's so many beautiful color combinations but what did I get? A fairly cool neutral palette. No. 4 Saharienne. I think it looks vastly different from the stock pictures on the Sephora website - take a look:

The stock image looks much warmer and the colors look quite a bit richer. The case is identical to the older quads, that same sleek gold case that attracts finger smears with a vengeance. These ready-to-wear palettes are what I like to call "portion controlled"; the main color has a larger pan than darker colors of which you'll likely use less.

Mundane Monday, Vol. XXI: Things to Come

Good morning!

I miss blogging quite a bit. It's getting hectic around here, we're only one week or so from closing escrow on our first home and moving in. I'm in the process of not only packing, but pruning our possessions and that includes my beauty products. In other words: my blogging corner is a shambles.  So today I have for you sneak peak photos of products I'll be talking about in the near future.

Review: theBalm Meet Matt(e) Nude Palette



Ah, this palette. I've had my eye on theBalm's Meet Matt(e) Nude Palette for ages. It was one of those items that I would see on sale and promise myself to get next time, over and over again. I finally ordered a few weeks back and I'm pretty thrilled with it.

Review: KBShimmer Nail Vinyl Decals


Hi folks!

A few weeks ago KBShimmer launched their line of Nail Vinyls, decals made from adhesive backed vinyl that can be used for quick and easy nail art. I received a sample variety pack for review and was able to try them out. This is actually my first time using any sort of nail vinyl sticker product. I guess I just never really jumped on the chevron/zig zag trend!

A Copper/Burgundy EOTD

Good afternoon!

I hope you all are having as great of a day (or night) that I am. We had a great time watching the World Cup Final (Congratulations, Germany!). This is an EOTD where I attempted xoxoalexisleigh's gorgeous Copper Smokey Eye. Inner highlights don't look that great on my wrinkly inner corners, so I skipped it.

Usually I try to get a few shots of eye makeup but in this case, the lashes I used made my eye so uncomfortable, they were quickly irritated. This happens occasionally when I use falsies, it's like my eye just isn't feeling heavy makeup sometimes.  So I only snapped two pictures, and on picture #2, I was already tearing up and quite red.

Brows: Anastasia Beverly Hills Granite Powder Duo
Eyes: LORAC Behind The Scenes Eye Primer, Inglot 430, Laura Mercier Fire Glow, Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy, Mehron iNtense Red Earth and Carbon, theBalm Meet Matt(e) Nude Palette, Ardell Edgy 402, eBay false lashes.

Hope you all have an awesome start to the week!
