When it comes to Disney, I can’t help myself I have to have it. I have seen almost every Disney movie at least five times. And can break out into any song at the sheer mention of a line. So, when ColourPop announced the Midnight Masquerade collection with Disney (their third collaboration) I wanted it in the worst way. My sister ended up surprising me by getting me the entire collection not just part of it as my Christmas present. Yes, several months early but you know what I’m in love!
The other night I actually left my house to be “social” by that I mean I hung out with my mom and sister by going to the Minnesota Zoo for the Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular. This is the second year they have done this event, so I didn’t know what to inspect since I didn’t go last year and held off on looking up any information. This way I could get the full experience. Apparently there were 5,000 illuminated pumpkins all with different sizes, shapes, and faces. It was incredible!View Post
The Pop Culture Download #14: American Horror Story: Apocalypse, Fallen, and Ghosts of the Shadow Market
It’s been two weeks since I posted one of these, and honestly with work I haven’t had much time for shows, movies, and games but I did manage to watch the entire eighth season of American Horror Story as well as watch a movie called Fallen. Plus, there are a few other random items here and there so let’s jump into my thoughts on these items.View Post
If you’ve been following my blog for a while you’ll know I love collecting makeup. Certain brands in particular, one of those being Anastasia Beverly Hills. Now I don’t have everything they have ever released, but I do have almost every eyeshadow palette since Modern Renaissance. Within the last two months they have released a lot of eyeshadow palette, almost to the rate of ColourPop releases (which I have cut myself off from) and honestly after this set from ABH I’m cutting myself off as well from their palettes so I can actually enjoy the ones that I’ve purchased. There are two others I’m going to get (Jeffree Star x Shane Dawson) and Tati’s palette if it is cruelty free then no eyeshadow palette purchases for the next six months.View Post
Fall has arrived along with the freezing cold temperatures and already the first snowfall, so my skin is dry as hell. And instead of wearing a full coverage foundation, I’ve surprisingly been wanting less coverage. But still something to even out the skin and provide some moisture. So, I’ve been trying to get into tinted moisturizers. Specifically I’ve been trying out the Florence by Mills Like a Light Skin Tint and ColourPop Hyaluronic Tinted Moisturizer. Since these aren’t really foundations, I’m not going to put them in my foundation comparison/ranking post. And will just be doing the one comparison between the two.View Post
I was really inspired by this look James Charles and Vanessa Davis did for the “launch” of the Morphe x James Charles mini palette. Which is basically the same palette just smaller. I got the original palette when it launched, moved and had to part ways with it due to size, then regretted that and my sister repurchased it for me as a moving in present (my sister comes up with a million reasons to get me makeup, I generally don’t ask her to but if I mention a palette looks cool and I can’t afford it, suddenly she surprises me with it. She’s the best, I love her to death). However, I recently got the Norvina Collection Volumes 1-3 and decided to use those instead to create my own version of this look.View Post
NABLA a few months ago came to Ulta, meaning the brand’s products are more accessible now in the United States. I had heard good things about the brand but never tried their products since it required international shipping. Initially when the brand launched in Ulta, they sold out on both the Poison Garden and Secret palettes almost immediately. So, I didn’t manage to get these until it was restocked. That time I decided not to skip out as the palettes look gorgeous and something I can totally see myself vibing with on a regular basis.View Post
