Etude House Nymph Aura Volumer #3 Transparent Review and Swatches

So, before I left for Anime Matsuri, I hurriedly made a teensy Asian beauty haul because I really wanted to achieve a certain look for my cosplay pictures. Doing that meant breaking one of my huge personal rules of cosplay, which is that “nothing should be new to you” — for example, makeup used ought to be products you’re familiar with and know exactly how to use and how they wear (sounds pretty obvious, right?). Of course, nothing ever goes quite as planned, and I barely got to try this product out even once before suddenly it was the day of the convention. Anyway, it worked out alright although I will definitely tweak some things for next time. So what is this mystery product?! Good question! Today’s post is about the Etude House Nymph Aura Volumer in shade #3 Transparent!

Cover FX Total Cover Cream Foundation in G50 Review and Swatches

My days of entering giveaways like a madwoman finally paid off! Phyrra, who is one of my favorite cruelty-free beauty bloggers, recently held a giveaway on her blog for a Cover FX Total Cover Cream Foundation and cream foundation brush. I entered, as I enter so many other giveaways, not really expecting much, but to my surprise, I was one of the lucky winners! Oh happy day! This is especially timely as I was that very week debating whether or not I wanted to pull the trigger and get the NARS Radiant Cream Compact Foundation. (I ended up splurging on the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, but I haven’t received it yet and anyway, that’s a review for another day! I also may STILL get the NARS foundation, because you know… gotta catch ’em all!) Continue reading

Camera Ready Cosmetics Haul (With Bonus Cosplay Ramblings!)

A few weeks ago, I was taking stock of my makeup collection and decided I needed to restock on my setting powders. And by that, I mean I realized I only had, like, three powders and that was just not enough. So, I made a small haul through Camera Ready Cosmetics in order to replenish my Ben Nye setting powder, as well as pick up a new bottle of Final Seal. In addition, I noticed they offered samples of the Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer, so I got one in shade SX08 to see how I’d like it. Continue reading

Sephora and Ulta Haul

I’m a bit backed up on reviews, and you can blame that on school! I’m in my second to last quarter of my Masters program, so things are rather busy, but I’m trying to stick with my resolution of 3 posts a week! Anyway, just wanted to show off my small Sephora and Ulta haul … Continue reading

Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation in 6.0 Review, Photos, Swatches

OK, so Urban Decay doesn’t actually call this a foundation; it’s a Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup. Whatever. All you need to know is it’s amazing. End post. Not really, but it is seriously amazing. I used to swear by Shiseido Perfect Refining Foundation, but this new Naked Skin is quickly edging its way into … Continue reading
