When I ventured into the world of indie cosmetics I noticed there was always someone talking about Fyrinnae. As I discovered, this is an(other) American independent make-up brand, known especially for their eyeshadows. My first order from them included a lip lustre (a sort of a liquid lipstick/lipgloss thing), a sample of their famous glitter glue – Pixie Epoxy –, and three mini jars of various eyeshadows. You can read my review of Intergalactic Bookstore here but now let’s focus on my second order: four super lovely eyeshadows from my second order.
This post is way overdue. I’ve been having it on my mind for the longest time but sadly couldn’t post it any time sooner. In early 2016, I started using more makeup and relatives quickly found some of my favourite makeup items that I love using this year, too. Some are part of the daily rotation while others are meant for special occasions only. Any way you look at them – they’re my favourites!
Hello Waffle Lavender Cream Liquid Highlighter
This is such a versatile highlighter that I can’t help but love it. It can be very, very subtle but it can also be packed on for a very noticeable, shimmery effect. It’s cool-toned so folks with warm undertones might not appreciate it that much. However, it should work fine if used sparingly. Check my review and swatches here.
NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation
This foundation stole my heart back in February 2016 but I only started using it in November. It truly is a weightless foundation because it feels like second skin and you don’t need to apply a lot of it to achieve medium-to-full coverage. I apply three drops, tops. While it’s called luminous, I find it to be more matte but then it’s not chalky or heavy, especially if you apply it to well-moisturised skin.
Every time I tell myself that I really don’t need any more eyeshadows or pretty much any other make-up item, I come across something that sparkles my interest and turns it into a bonfire. Continue reading “Hello Waffle: Kitty Kingdom Eyeshadows”
The fact is that I have quite a few lipsticks. The number isn’t really that big but in the past year I’ve accumulated so many that I keep forgetting about some of them on a regular basis. This is why I’ve decided that my lipsticks need some more loving.
In December, my focus will be on the Canadian brand Hello Waffle. I’ve written about the brand before (here, here, and here) so I’ll jump straight into the review, as well as the description of my new project.
November, probably the third* dullest month is gone and done. It’s finally got really cold outside and in my opinion that’s a good enough reason to stay indoors, drink copious amounts of tea and watch TV series. Really, why would anyone want to go outside to freeze their socks off?
However, there were some make-up, perfumes and skincare products that made getting ready for work (or going to sleep) much easier. This is my first favourites post, in which I will describe some things that I liked using the most in the past month. Enjoy the ride!
(Psst, there are swatches, too!)
As you’ve probably noticed already, I’m rather keen on alternative, independent beauty products. I discovered this post on Reddit a long while back and I decided to write a proper blog post about it in case anyone wondered why I decided to go down this rabbithole.
Today I prepared a post about my favourite lipsticks – the ones I will most likely wear this festive season. They’re not your typical reds or vampy shades, instead they’re more natural and not in your face. Perfect for office wear and nice solutions when you go out but want to emphasize your other features and not your lips.
Have you ever heard of destash? This term means selling your existing stash (of cosmetic products, yarn, you name it) in order to buy new items. I’ve come across this word nowhere else but on Reddit (IMAM again) and decided to buy some perfume oil samples to test them out before committing to a full size.
Want to know more about it? Continue reading. 😉
Today I will present you a brand called Hellow Waffle Cosmetics that I’ve recently discovered through Reddit. If you want to check out some indie make-up brands, Hello Waffle Cosmetics is a good place to start.
More after the jump!
