Bare Minerals Degrees of Dazzling Swatches + Look

Hello everyone! Today I am bringing you swatches of an online only Sephora exclusive, the Bare Minerals Degrees of Dazzling eye shadow set. After a little searching, I found that you can also purchase this set directly from the Bare Minerals website, and it is currently on sale there for $49. This set contains 20 eye shadows, ranging from mattes to high shine metallics. Each shade is available to be purchased individually, so if you see only a few shades you like here, you can always get them separately and just bypass the entire set. Lets get to the swatches!

The Perfect Palette Tag!

I've been interested in doing this tag for a while after seeing several videos on YouTube, but I'm just now getting around to doing it. Shame on me, I know. I'm just going to talk about the palettes and not provide pictures. Since my internet connection has been incredibly slow lately, I'm having a hard time getting pictures to load up.  Let's get this tag started!

Chinovi Cosmetics - Swatches and EOTD

I placed my very first order with Chinovi Cosmetics on Black Friday (they were having an awesome sale), and I just received my package yesterday! I've heard so many good things about the brand, but I just now got around to ordering.  The shadows are soooooo gorgeous and pigmented and all-around amazing! If you'd like to see some swatches and my first look with my new pretties, keep reading after the break!

EOTD: Indigo

Sorry for the lack of posts guys. I've been pretty busy with work and stuff. We have some lovely snow and ice all over the roads right now, so I figured since I am going in to work late, that I would get a new blog post up. 

This look features Indigo from Darling Girl Cosmetics. It's a really awesome shadow that looks white in the jar, but transforms into a gorgeous purple when placed over a dark base. Indigo is part of the Rainbow Brite collection, in which all of the shadows transform in a similar manner.

Illamasqua Mystery Selection Unboxing!

Yesterday I used my Sephora VIB $20 reward card to purchase the Illamasqua Mystery Selection Box. I've always wanted to try some Illamasqua products and figured this would be a good way to try a variety of different items at a good price. The shipping was incredibly fast: I ordered at 8 AM yesterday, received a tracking number by noon, and the package arrived today! It pays to live somewhat near a Sephora warehouse, haha. Onto the unboxing!

EOTD: Marlee

Hi everyone! Today I felt like using some glitter! After the last week of work (grocery store + Thanksgiving shoppers = jerks) I needed some extra sparkle to cheer me up!
