Sugarpill Burning Heart Palette


Talk about late--I've had this palette for nearly a year, and I'm now finally reviewing it. I don't love it as much as the Sweet Heart one, but it's a great palette nonetheless. After all this time of trying out a lot different brands, Sugarpill remains as one of my constant favorites. I reach for these colors whether it's for an everyday smokey eye, feeling creative, or for when I'm traveling. The Burning Heart quad has four rainbow-friendly colors that are wonderfully vibrant in their (mostly) matte application.

Nails of the Day -- the Old Vic


I swatched a few different colors using a new top coat I got from the Old Vic Collection by Nails Inc today! These photos however, are of the manicure I gave myself for the week while I test out the wear. I messed up my ring finger several times before I painted something that didn't look terrible, so I hope you like it~ Look out for the duo polish review early next month!

tokidoki Cromatico Eyeshadow Palette in Polpettina


These Cromatico palettes have been out for quite a while now, but before Sephora's Black Friday discount coming up tomorrow where they're 10$ each (limit 2), they were discounted to 19$ down from the original 25$. Unfortunately, as cute as these palettes are, I'm not even sure that they're worth 10$ each. On a side note, I also have one in Bastardino, and really only got these mini palettes because I liked the charms and never bought the respective tokidoki Cactus Pup vinyl figurines.

#2 -- Lust Red Eyes to Kill Intense by Giorgio Armani


Lust Red is the second Eyes to Kill eyeshadow I have, and it is also my favorite. For a more complete review, please check out my first post on Blast of Blue.

IPKN My It Gloss in T2 Peach


IPKN lip glosses can be found for 19$ at Pretty & Cute. I tried the one in Peach, and it is a generous tube of pink tinted gloss. As always, there are more photos and swatches after the cut, but check out the video for an overview and size comparisons!

Lancôme L'Absolu Rouge Lipstick in Coquette


Coquette (29$) is a dusty rose colored lipstick that comes in luxe Lancome packaging. The shiny golden tube goes inside a sleek black lid that's magnetic and the general weight of the lippy does not feel cheap.

Halloween { Part 1 } -- Referee

me, Jay, and Frank

I've been in Chicago visiting Frank and a couple weeks ago was Halloween! I spent last year's here and this year almost didn't happen, but I'm happy to finally be spending time with him, to say the least. I dressed up like a referee and Frank was one of the dudes from the Crazy 88s. He's started up quite the sword collection finding accessories for his costume, but the one we took to the club was fairly dull.
