Shiro Cosmetics Color of the Month Haul

In order to save myself from the neverending torment of new collections and limited releases, I generally try to make hauls, as opposed to small purchases, just so I’m not constantly buying up … Continue reading

Sugarpill ChromaLust Loose Eyeshadow in Asteria Review, Swatches and Pictures

At the inaugural PHamExpo this year, Sugarpill introduced a limited edition ChromaLust loose shadow in the shade Asteria. They only produced 1000 of these and brought half of the stock to the expo to sell; the other half, they put up for sale online in a limited sale. I snapped one up as soon as they went live.

OCC Lip Tar in NSFW and January Rising Review, Swatches and Pictures

Several months ago, I posted about the release of a special limited edition OCC lip tar called January Rising in order to raise money for an OCC employee’s (the titular January) transitional surgery. I gladly contributed to the campaign, and received my lip tar quite a while ago — maybe a month or even longer. Even before I received that, however, I’d gone to Sephora and tried out the OCC lip tar in NSFW — my boyfriend liked it so much, he bought it for me as a gift. So, this is a very belated review but I felt I had to do it considering how much I like them.

Haus of Gloi Review

I have a serious weakness for bath and body products. When I worked at LUSH, it got to be real bad. I even had to buy extra shower caddies and stick-on soap holders for all my product. But I also drank the kool-aid while I was there — I only bought and used LUSH product. Now that I don’t work there, I don’t feel such overwhelming guilt for going outside the fold. So, in my never-ending quest to be the best-smelling person in the world, I ventured into the well-known indie brand Haus of Gloi a little while back.

I saved the best palette for last! Of course, best is a subjective term, but the Sugarpill Burning Heart palette is certainly my favorite!
