Shiro Cosmetics Color of the Month Haul

[button link=”http://bubbleteapanda.com/pr-disclosure-privacy/” target=”_blank” rel=”nofollow” color=”FTC” shape=”rounded” size=”small” align=”left”]I Bought This[/button] Indie makeup brands are, as I’ve noted before, terrible for the wallet. 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

Pinky Paradise – Vassen Lollipop Violet & G&G Dueba Barbie Diamond Grey Circle Lenses Review and Pictures

Recently, I’ve decided to get back into cosplaying. When I was younger, it was a pretty big passion of mine and in the process, I taught myself to sew and fabricate accessories and props. I fell out of the con scene after a while, and with it, lost my drive to cosplay. But several months ago, I was gripped with a burst of inspiration and I decided to jump back into the game. I chose the Nightingale armor from Skyrim, just because it’s one of my favorite games and favorite outfits ever. (In retrospect, it may have been a bit ambitious for my first cosplay after several years of hiatus… :-_-: )

To go with this costume, I decided to order some new circle lenses. My main character in Skyrim is a Bosmer (wood elf) sneak thief, who has grey eyes. But I also thought purple eyes would be really striking considering most of my face will be hidden behind the mask, so I decided to get both to see which I preferred. I bought mine from Pinky Paradise. The ones I chose were the Vassen Lollipop Violet and the G&G Dueba (Barbie) Diamond Grey. Hit the jump to see everything! Continue reading

Sugarpill Sweetheart Palette Review, Swatches, Pictures

Halfway through Sugarpill week! Today, I have the Sugarpill Sweetheart palette to show you. Though I love all the palettes to bits, this is probably my second favorite of the bunch. (Burning Heart, which I’ll show you tomorrow, is my favorite.) I think of all them, however, the Sugarpill Sweetheart palette is probably the most “versatile.”

I say that because this is the only palette which includes a potential highlight shade in Tako. Of course, not all palettes or eye looks need a highlight shade, but I think if you wanted to pick only one palette which could be used with other brands/shadows in a million different looks, this would be my choice. Of course, you may disagree! I’d love to hear your thoughts on 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

LUSH Emotional Brilliance in Believe and Dynamic – Review, Swatches, Pictures

As I’ve already said before, I used to work for LUSH a few years ago. People would see “fresh handmade cosmetics” and come in and ask, “Oh, is this like makeup?” and we’d have to go into our spiel about how no, it’s not makeup but skincare, haircare and body products. Well, not too long … Continue reading
