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

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

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.
