August Empties

Hi guys, gals and non-binary pals

It’s time for another empties post! We’re almost at the end of the month and by now, I’ve probably finished everything that I’m likely to finish by Friday so I thought I’d chat about what is moving out of my beauty stash today!

Disappointing Products #2

Hey guys!

It’s been a little while since my last Disappointing Products post because it’s taken me a while to actually have products to be disappointed in! I suppose that’s probably a good thing haha. Quick disclaimer before I start this post, what may be disappointing for me, may work for you. I don’t want you to think that you’re using a terrible product if it is working for you! Either way, I hope that you enjoy this post!

Femme Fatale Haul and Swatches

Hey guys!

Recently I placed my first order with Femme Fatale during their New Year Sale and let’s just say the saying ‘go big or go home’ really applied to this order. I have always loved pigments and I’d always ordered from Shiro Cosmetics. However, when their backlog of orders became too long a wait for me to handle, I decided that I needed to come back to an Australian store, where I’d at least only have to wait for processing. I know a few other bloggers really rave about their pigments so I really wanted to give them a go and I was PLEASANTLY surprised by the quality. I hope that you enjoy the haul and the swatches!

June Wishlist!

Hey guys!

With so many things being released/teased, I think we are all wanting new things pretty regularly. I haven’t posted a wishlist since March and I was thinking that I might make them monthly due to the frequency of releases! This month’s post will feature a few things that I’m super excited to get my hot little hands on!

Glam Cthulhu Look

Hey guys!

I don’t talk about this a lot on my blog, in fact I think I’ve only talked about it once and it was around Christmas, but I love to play board games! They’ve become super popular lately and one of my favourite games to play is Fantasy Flight’s Eldritch Horror, based on fiction written by H.P. Lovecraft! It is a cooperative game that requires you to team up with friends to beat monsters, close gates, solve mysteries and gain items. This week, I went to a board games night at a friend’s house and I thought that it’d be fun to do my makeup inspired by the cosmic entity that is Cthulhu! I hope that you enjoy.

Review: Shiro Cosmetics New Leaf Trio (I CAN’T BE LEAF IT)

Hey guys!

So, today I am here to talk about Shiro Cosmetics‘ new-ish pigment trio based on one of my favourite DS games, Animal Crossing. I was so excited when I heard about this and like every other collection that Shiro creates, I felt like this collection was meant for me (sorry, bank account (but not really because Shiro is affordable)). As always, I feel like these shades may not be shades that I’m immediately drawn to nor do I think that I will wear all the time. I definitely look at Shiro more for the novelty of makeup that is themed around things I really enjoy. But the products are fantastic quality and the price for both the product and the shipping is really phenomenal so I don’t mind at all.

Here’s what I received!

As always, I received what I ordered, and then I received some free samples. Shiro are super generous with their samples and I really need to get some more little jars for these samples or I’ll never use them. You can read my post about how I transferred them from the little bags into little jars here!

The first shadow in the collection is Forever A Loan.
11693083_10153243653752530_1621153354_nHonestly, the entire game is about one big loan that you have because of this weenie right here, Tom Nook. 11720725_10153243653802530_733386450_n

This shade is really cool. I don’t know if I had something on my hand before I swatched the shade, but the shadow turned a little yellow on the edges of my swatch. It is a warmer mint colour, similar to OPI Nail Lacquer in Gargantuan Greep Grape. I can definitely see myself wearing this, I’ve been trying to wear more green but I keep falling back on neutrals because I’m lazy.

The next pigment in the trio is Canine Help You?

Isabelle is the sweetest lil bean in New Leaf and I’m so glad that she got a shade. I actually thought that I’d probably get the most use out of this colour because its a more neutral yellow. Its really gorgeous and it kinda reminds me or butter or vanilla ice cream haha.

The last pigment in the trio is Alpaca Picnic

I love Reese and I love this shade, I’m not sure what else to say about it. It is a gorgeous colour and I think that it would suit so many people. I think it would look especially good on people with blue/green eyes because it will make your eye colour pop!

The two additional pigments I received were Little Bird from the Game of Thrones collection and Diamonds, I’m not sure which collection this one is from.

Diamonds is a super sparkly colour, when I first opened it, it burst out of the little packet and sparkles flew into the air. And yes, they were PASTEL SPARKLES~~~~

Little Bird is a really great colour, especially good for crease work or transitioning. It is a super popular shade right now and for good reason! I also adore the character that it is based on. #SansaIsBAE

The only thing about this collection is that I wish that they made more shades because Cyrus, KK, Mabel and Labelle would have also made great shades, along with all of the other characters. I really love this game.

I hope that you enjoyed this post, if you’re interested in seeing the rest of my Shiro Cosmetics collection with swatches, you can find it here!

I hope that you are all enjoying your day!
