Six Months of Aromaleigh Ephemera Subscription Boxes- Best Sub Box for Makeup I've found!

When the Sub Boxes Arrive

Hi there!

Due to school/work my blog has been super duper empty.  So I've decided to try and up the ante and blog more.  Especially since I've been able to amass some killer stuff that I want to post.  It's been fun keeping up with new collections and trying to find subscription boxes that are worth the cost every month.  One of those really steals my heart.  Welcome to six months of Ephemera, by Aromaleigh.

Hi there!

Okay so you see this amazing deal online- be it on Ebay or a website or via Facebook's local sell page....you see that palette you've been dying over and order it for like $20!  YES!  Then you get it, open it, and one of the eyeshadows is called Chocolate Gordial and you're all, "Whaa?"

Congrats, you bought a fake palette.  How can you get educated so you don't make the mistake again? I'll help you discover how to spot those wannabe palettes so you'll never get fooled.

Fall in Love with Too Faced's Heart Shaped Love Flush Blushes! Review!


Hi there!

Summer 2015 new release collections are all over the place- shamelessly making us makeup girls go crazy.  I'm not going to pretend that I didn't fall head over heels for one of the products that was really cute.  Too Faced recently released these super duper addictive heart shaped blushes that I LOVE.  The packaging kills me.  It's smooth, shiny candy-like plastic that has Too Faced in gold script on the front.  I want to hoard them in my purse and I think I have all 6.  Let's take a look at 4 of them-

Colour Pop Highlighters, glow glow glow! Swatches!


Hi there!

Wowza so I finally (FINALLY) finished my BSN in nursing.  I will post on it later but first I wanted to share my latest find:  Colour Pop Highlighters!  These lovely things are the same creamy, mousse-like formula as Colour Pop's eyeshadows and blushes, but they gleam and glisten- bringing dewy skin in a lovely range of shades.

LA Girl Matte Pigment Lip Gloss- Dupe for Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss?



Hi there!

While Anastasia's website is mysteriously on the fritz (you click and go to an error message if you want to test it out) I was looking for an option to find an affordable matte lip paint.  You want a Velvetine from Lime Crime too?  To satisfy that itch for a matte lipstick that applies wet I found a new love in La Girl Matte Pigment Lip Glosses.  For $5 each (yes, for realio) you can get LA Girl's Matte Pigment Lip Glosses at a fraction of the cost of similar products.

Maybe Rebel is a dupe for Lime Crime's Riot Velvetine?  Wouldn't that be nice?!

New Collections from Aromaleigh- Galactic Eyeshadow!



Hi there!

So yeah, I've not posted in eons.  BUT I have been working, working like a busy bee to finish school and be smart and swift at work.  Both are keeping me humming along and leave little time for blogging.

BUT I wanted to share a new collection from Aromaleigh.  I love Aromaleigh.  I always have.  They make beautiful glimmering products with such quality, intelligence, and thought.

Here is Galactic- a lovely new collection of 10 eyeshadow shades inspired by the cosmos.

Comparisons and Dupe of Lime Crime Salem Velvetine: Brown Lipsticks and Liners

I love brown!  And yes, chocolate!

Hi there!

Okay so brown lipstick- specifically Lime Crime Makeup Lip Stain in Wicked.  I've wanted it for.ever.  It's this gorgeous brown that constantly pops up on Lime Crime's Instagram and taunts me.  It's not just 'brown' it's like milk chocolate but with a slight warm undertone that keeps it from looking like you raided your stash of Hershey's.  It's just gorgeous.  Here are some of the pics I'm talking about:
