Review: Viseart Eyeshadow Palettes

  Well, I wanted to give these a good thorough testing before I reviewed them, and I think it’s safe to say I’ve had plenty of time – after all, I originally posted swatches of the Bridal Satin & Paris Nudes palettes a little over a year ago (yikes!). In the meantime I’ve also picked up their Theory palette in Cashmere and decided that no really, it is time. And after 12 months of using them I still have mixed feelings. Packaging Urban Decay Naked 3 for  ...

MAKE Beauty Review

  You guys, I think I have a neutral-makeup problem. Seriously though. Every time I check the makeup subs on reddit or look at my social media feed, it’s full of colorful eyeshadows, dramatic contouring, ‘instagram brows’ and generally just tons of things that could have come straight out of the NYX Face Awards.

Review: YSL Couture Variation Palette #1 Nu

It’s been a looooong time since I bought an eyeshadow palette! Like pretty much every girl in the world, I started my palette collection with the original Urban Decay Naked, and continued it with Naked 2. The hype about it convinced me that it was the be-all, end-all eyeshadow palette – hey, I was young(er) and impressionable – and accordingly, I loved it. For a while. I still think Urban Decay has a great eyeshadow formula and the Naked palettes are a great value,  ...

Ulta Artistry Kit & The Myth Of The Dupe

Dupes are something I’ve wanted to talk about for a while but I was having a lot of difficulty framing the topic beyond ‘yeah, they usually don’t exist’. Not that I don’t want them to – it’s just that most times I’ve heard of a product being a dupe, my hopes were dashed when I actually compared it to the real thing (with one or two exceptions). But then last week I stumbled across the Ulta Artistry Eye Shadow Kit on the interwebz, and if  ...
