So, I have moved to blogger now.
I’ve heard its much easier and much more customizeable on there. So i switched everything over just a few minutes ago.
all the posts from this blog (except this one) are now on there. 🙂
SO here is the link! Please go and follow me on there. I will no longer be using this one on wordpress.
Hi guys!!! I know long time no post from me.
Life has been UBER hectic and crazy.
I went on my vaca in June and ended up with my sister, and her 3 kids moving in with me and my mom….So we had to move and yeah. Its just been crazy!
I’ve had no time for doing my makeup, let alone reviews. So I thought I’d jump in with a review on some stuff I’ve been meaning to review for months now that things are starting to settle down.
Sooo, today I have a review of Eliza Fragrances lip stick, lip rouge, lip and cheek tint, and eyeshadows.
I do want to mention now that I do have some samples of her fragrances that I need to review but right now I sadly can’t find them. 😦 But as soon as I do find them they will be up in a review as well. 🙂
(clockwise: Paulette lipstick, Bette lipstick, Hedy lip rouge, Rouge for lips and cheeks, and eyeshadows)
First up are the eyeshadows:
(L-R: Orchid, Champagne, and Turquoise)
(L-R: Orchid, Champagne, Turquoise)
Orchid is a lovely light purple/lavender color that leans really blue in certain lights
Champagne is just a lovely skintone color with some silver sheen/sparkle to it.
Turquoise is a lovely bright blue color with some green/silver sparkle to it.
These are all satin colors so there is no real big glitter chunks. They are all super pigmented as the swatches are on dry bare skin with no primer underneath. They are also all super soft.
Next is the Rouge for lips and cheeks which is the big container in the main picture. Sorry I’m alittle rusty and forgot to get individual product shots of the lip products. D:
(swatch on back of hand)
This sadly doesn’t have a name other than rogue for lips and cheeks.
Its a lovely strawberry red/pink color that gives a nice natural enhancement to your lips.
Its not greasy at all and almost looks like a stain on your lips.
I haven’t had a chance to try this out on the cheeks yet but I do love it on the lips.
Up next is the Lipstick in Bette:
This is Bette on the lips, and I have to say it is my FAVORITE lipstick of all time at the moment.
I feel it goes with just about any look you can think of.
Bette is a lovely rasberry pink color with a hint of purple to it on my skintone.
These lipsticks I find last a really long time on my lips. Especially once they “set”.
They are not drying at all and have a lovely creamy texture to them.
Next is the lipstick in Paulette:
Paulette is a lovely bright magenta color with some purple in it as well.
I love this one as well but its SUPER bright on me haha.
Again it has the same texture as Bette.
Last but not least is the lip rouge in Hedy:
Hedy lip rouge comes in a pot rather than a tube. So you need a lip brush to apply it.
Hedy is a lovely red with some berry undertones. I love it against my fair skin.
Its creamy, easy to apply and layer, and long lasting again. 🙂
Overall I really love everything I got from Eliza Fragrances. I know I will deffinatly be buying Bette once I run out.
Also, the owner is also working on new lip glosses as well which I am excited to hopefully try someday, as well as a halloween collection.
I highly recommend anything from Eliza Fragrances!! (Especially Bette!!)
So if you’d like to check out the company go to their facebook page here and have a look around:
You will not be disappointed!! 🙂
I hope you all are having a lovely day and I’m so glad to be back!! I’ve missed you all. 🙂
These items were sent to me for review purposes, but all opinions are my own and 100% honest.
I am not being paid to do this review.
So today I have a HUGE and I mean HUGE Sugarpill cosmetics post for you.
This is going to be very long, and very pic heavy, so please bear with me! I have had some requests for this so I thought I’d do it. 🙂
I will show both swatches, and pictures of the packaging, as well as giving color descriptions, and kinda a mini revie.
I have all the pressed shadows that Sugarpill currently makes. Including the new ones just released friday, as well as two of the Chromalusts.
All swatches are over primer only! No other bases under them!!
So lets get started!!!
BURNING HEART PALETTE:
(Front of palette)
(back of palette)
(palette opened up)
Flamepoint: Bright matte orange
Buttercupcake: Bright matte yellow
Love +: Bright matte red
Poison Plum: Bright yet deep matte dark purple
Sweet Heart Palette:
I will not bore you with a picture of the front of this palette as it is the same as the burning heart one.
(back of palette)
Dollypop: Bright matte hot pink
Afterparty: Bright blue with a slight sheen to it.
Midori: Bright green with a slight sheen to it.
Tako: Matte white
Heart Breaker Palette:
(front of palette)
(back of palette)
Acidberry: Shimmery bright chartusse green/yellow
Velocity: Bright mostly matte royal blue
2am: Bright purple with undertones of pink and white/lavender shimmer
Mochi: shimmery aqua/mint color
Single Shadow in Bulletproof:
(top of compact)
(bottom of compact)
Bulletproof: matte black
Chromalust’s in Absinthe and Lumi:
(top of container)
(bottom of containers)
(product in containers, L-R: Absinthe and Lumi)
Absinthe: a bright and extremely sparkly acidy lime green
Lumi: A very sparkly white with a teal/blue duochrome to it
So, let me start off by saying that I absolutely LOVE Sugarpill Cosmetics. Everything from them in my opinion is really great.
All the shadows are smooth, a couple can be a tad powdery. (Mainly Mochi) They all blend beautifly and are super bright on their own, but even more pumped up over a white base.
The packaging I think is lovely. The palettes are magnetic, which means if you want to condense your eyeshadows down into other palettes you can, you just feel around on the back of the palette for the little “bumps” those are little holes that you can stick a paperclip through to pop out the shadows. 🙂 Also, the palettes are made of cardboard, but feel very sturdy and hefty. They also come with a huge mirror in the lid, which is lovely.
The Chromalusts are amazing, very pigmented and smooth as well for being so shimmery/glittery. they stick to the lids very well. I sadly only have two at the moment but eventually want to get alot more!
All the products in my opinion are great quality and I am in love with them.
Also the customer service at Sugarpill is amazing! When I got my Burning Heart palette in the mail, my poision plum shadow had shattered, so I emailed them to see what they could do if anything, all they asked for was a picture of the broken shadow and then they sent out a replacement pan to me for free! Very quickly too!
So overall I really enjoy and love sugarpill. I highly recommend them!!
Is there anything you are seriously wanting/drooling over from them? I’d love to know! 🙂
I hope you enjoyed this super long post and commend anyone who made it through!! lol.

Hey all, long time no blog I know.
I’ve just been quite busy lately, and kinda overwhelmed.
But today I have some swatches and a mini review of SweetPea&Fay’s Liquid Lipsticks. 🙂
They had a sale a little while ago and I got 3 of their lipsticks. 🙂
So here we go with the swatches, I’ll also include full face pics of me wearing the lipsticks.
Penelope is a lovely bright pink with purple undertones. I think this is my fave outta the ones I got.
Imogen is a bright true pink color. Very pretty.
Nantes is described on their site as a rose color with maroon undertones, but honestly I have no idea how to describe this myself.
Also this is the one that I really want y’alls opinions on, do you think it looks good on me??
These come in squeezy tubes, which for liquid lipsticks I don’t mind.
The only issue I really have with these are that they are super hard to get out of the tube due to the consistancy it is.
These are very thick and super pigmented. You only need alittle bit to get great coverage.
You can apply them with a brush, or your finger. I’ve done both and they both work well.
These do have a scent, which is a very strong vanilla cake type scent. Almost like MAC lipsticks, but they have no taste to them.
Also, the lasting power is pretty well with these.
Overall I really do like these alot, my fave is penelope for sure but I can see myself wearing these alot and want to get more from them.
So I hope you enjoyed!!
Hey guys!! I know I haven’t posted a fotd in awhile but I’ve not been having to good of a time lately.
So today I had some errands to run and decided to try and cheer myself up.
I saw this look on youtube by vintageortacky and looooved the look of it, so I decided to try and recreate it. Tho it didn’t come out quite how I wanted it to ( I wanted it brighter) I do like it. 🙂
I just need to find a purple base, and a better purple eyeshadow with a blue duochrome. >.<
So I hope you enjoy it!!!
