Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Dupes

Hi guys, gals and non-binary pals

Prior to the reviews and the online catastrophe that was the Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette, I really wanted to purchase this palette. I adore the shades and it’s very different to anything that I currently own. This palette had a lot of tones that I thought would be much more fun to play around with than the Modern Renaissance palette, which is supposed to be the sister palette to the Subculture palette. I still find that that the shades in that palette can border pink-eye type looks, even though I do love burgundy shadow. So I thought Subculture would be right up my alley and then all the reviews came out and I just couldn’t risk spending the money on something that just wasn’t great quality. So I thought I’d create a dupes post using my favourite brands of single shadows, Makeup Geek and Inglot, to create a sort of similar palette out of the shades that both brands currently sell. I will have two separate dupe palettes created so that you could purchase all of the shadows from one store. I hope that you find this post helpful!

Why I Chose to Remove My Implanon

Hey guys!

Today I wanted to talk about something that’s a pretty personal decision but I know that a lot of women take contraception and because it’s a taboo topic, there’s not a lot of info about everyone’s experience with it. To allow for people to have an open discussion about an important part of many people’s lives, I wanted to talk about my experience with contraception, why I chose to get the implanon and then have it removed early. I hope that you enjoy more of a personal topic today and if this isn’t up your alley, you won’t have to wait too long for my next post!

Hey guys!

As a lot of you may know, I’ve been very interested in being as cruelty free as possible, both diet and makeup/skincare wise. Being on a budget has presented some challenges in finding certain products to replace some non-cruelty free favourites so I wanted to share with you the easiest products that you can swap for cruelty free alternatives. Whether or not being cruelty free is your end goal, it is always important to try to do as little damage as possible so I felt like regardless of your makeup ambitions, this will be a good post for everyone on their makeup discovery journey!
