Eyeshadow Palette Swatch Round-Up: July 2018

  I posted this on my instagram account a few days ago, but I thought it would also be useful to make an actual blog post for posterity. Earlier this week I went to Sephora because that’s what I do when I’m bored, and I took the opportunity to swatch some of the eyeshadow palettes I hadn’t tried yet. Everyone loves swatches, so here they are! I’ve added some thoughts too, but please note I didn’t actually wear any of these, so definitely don’t count  ...

Chanel is Coming to Ulta & I Don’t Care

  Last week the news broke that Ulta is going to start carrying Chanel, and the reactions around the beauty web were pretty mixed. I think pretty much everyone was surprised, but whether it’s a good move or not seems up for debate. Some folks see it as a sign that Ulta’s taking a big step forward, and others feel like it will cheapen Chanel’s brand. From me, the whole thing gets a big ‘meh’ for a few reasons At first I thought bringing Chanel to Ulta (as  ...
