Comparing My Neutral Palettes, Which Ones are Extremely Similar?

Comparing My Neutral Palettes, Which Ones are Extremely Similar?

Out of my collection there are seventeen palettes that are neutral, maybe a few more give or take. I thought I would pull them out of my collection and just compare them to each other. To determine if any of them are insanely similar to one another, or see how many of the shades appear to be identical. Any palette that were more color than neutral (various shades of brown) were discarded for this comparison. I’m going to be swatching each shade that appears similar next to each other to the comparison.

Comparing Tarte NEW Face Tape Foundation to Original Shape Tape Matte Foundation

Comparing Tarte NEW Face Tape Foundation to Original Shape Tape Matte Foundation

After last year’s failure of a foundation launch by Tarte, they went on the wayside for most influencers. From a terrible shade range for both formulas and repackaging a foundation and claiming it as being new in that same launch. This flop also came with the excuse that they didn’t release darker shades because these were the “winter shades” and the darker ones came later in the summer. No one bought that and canceled them. To start off the year of 2019 they released a new foundation called Face Tape, which includes 50 shades ranging from very fair to very deep. The Face Tape foundation is supposed to be the remastered version of the Matte Shape Tape Foundation, and both were inspired by their iconic shape tape concealer. Their slogan for this release was: “You asked, we listened.” A bit late to be honest, as I mentioned they did expand the original range but at that point everyone had started looking for dupes of the concealer so they had alternatives to that. And stopped talking about their products.

3-Looks-1 Palette: NYX Phoenix Ultimate Shadow Palette & ColourPop BFF Liquid Eyeliners

3-Looks-1 Palette: NYX Phoenix Ultimate Shadow Palette & ColourPop BFF Liquid Eyeliners

I haven’t done a 3 looks 1 palette on my blog in a while that didn’t also include a review. And with my new mulled wine or merlot colored hair I was feeling fire-y so I decided let’s do another one of these posts using the NYX Phoenix Ultimate Shadow Palette. Plus I just got the ColourPop BFF Liquid Eyeliners so a bunch of these looks have graphic liner in them for a bit of something different and fun. I’m not doing a review on either of these products just showing up some fun looks using them, but if you would like a dedicated review on either of these products let me know and I’ll make it happen.

Making a Statement With JORD Watches*

Making a Statement With JORD Watches*

One thing I told myself at the start of the year is I would “age” up my wardrobe. Meaning I would actually start to dress to reflect my job. I’m a senior technical lead for a healthcare IT firm working in downtown Minneapolis. One thing I swear makes any look more professional looking is a good watch. Over the years I have tried to get watches, but ultimately always stopped wearing them typically due to my metal allergy. About two years ago, I was introduced to JORD Watches which are crafted with wood not metal for the main material of the band. I wanted to get one in the worst way but couldn’t justify the cost, so when they offered to do a collaboration I was beyond excited.

Why I Don’t Really Purchase From Lush Anymore

Why I Don’t Really Purchase From Lush Anymore

This has nothing to do against Lush when it comes to the things they do from fighting animal cruelty and charities to better the environment. I used to LOVE Lush and got products from them often through my roommate who used to work there. I’ve done a lot of posts about their products in the past but I haven’t really gotten anything for the last year. I did get some for Christmas but other than that everything from them is around three years old. So I thought I would just discuss why I don’t figure them so much on my blog anymore.

The Sims 4: Ranking the Packs

The Sims 4: Ranking the Packs

I love playing The Sims 4, which probably comes as no surprise and I have basically every expansion, game, and stuff packs that are currently out as of February 27, 2019. I’m only stating the date as more packs are probably going to come out in the future and I’ll post something in the future on those most likely. So I thought it would be a fun idea to rank them.

The Sims 4: StrangerVille Review

The Sims 4: StrangerVille Review

The Sims 4 just released a new game pack, which is more of a mini-story mode that takes place solely in StrangerVille. This is a desert town that holds a dark secret where it’s citizens are acting bizarre. Especially in regards to a secret lab located in a crater. Similar to Strange Town of The Sims 2. To help you along with the story they have an aspiration that walks you through each of the steps you need to do so you can solve the story. I used to love The Sims 3: World Adventures and trying to figure out the mysteries of the temples.
