Too Faced Peaches & Cream Collection is an Easy Pass :/

IMAG8250_1

Honestly I don’t even know why I do it to myself. I mean Too Faced has gotten pretty hit or miss over the last few years so not really sure what I was expecting going into this. And really, they’ve never been all that brown girl friendly beyond a certain shade of brown so yeah…I guess I was drawn in by all the pretty pictures on the Sephora website, but has anyone else noticed that Sephora has been over colour saturating their product photos? Like everything is five shades paler than it looks on the website.

I was having a day where I wasn’t having much work getting any writing done so I drove from the coffee shop I was at to the Sephora since it was on the way home. I had planned to pick up at least three of the blushes, a highlighter, finishing powder, a couple lipsticks, the palette and I was thinking of getting the foundation but I hadn’t decided yet. The only thing that I wound up getting was the palette and a sample of the foundation because everything? It’s kinda trash, sorry. I took pictures of everything and swatched most things.

Fiona Stiles Is Low-Key Some Of The Best Makeup That’s Being Discontinued…

IMAG7784_1

 

When Fiona Stiles hit Ulta about…I wanna say maybe a year and a half ago? I was intrigued. I liked the look of the packaging, and the colour combinations looked interesting. But…I’d never heard of Fiona Stiles. Like who was this chick and why was I supposed to care that she had a makeup line now? The price point became the second issue for me. I’m not about to drop almost forty dollars on a single product from a brand that I know nothing about, that’s barely been reviewed. Nah.

Coastal Scents Everlasting Lipsticks.

IMAG0146

I have been praying for I don’t know how long to the makeup gods that Coastal Scents would start making lip colour other than glosses. Imagine my delight when I got the email that not only had they newly launched 15 brand spanking new lipsticks, but that they were being offered at the introductory price of $2.95. I didn’t even really spend much more than a second thinking about it, before I just went on over an snagged all 15 of them. Ok, 14, I didn’t get one because I was pretty sure I wouldn’t even be able to give that frosty beige madness away, much less wear it.

When Something Seems To Works For Every Brown Girl…But You.

 

IMAG0108

Those are the times when you feel wholly inadequate and like something is just really very off about you, cause dang what’s your problem anyway? And then you remember that all your (brown) girlfriends used to rave about MAC too, and that ish wasn’t too hot for you either. Yeah, so we’re talking about Sacha Cosmetics today. This brand out of Trinidad seems to be on the lips and HG lists of every brown beauty guru. I had heard about them for so long that I decided to do a haul.

Holiday Sets 2015: Stila Eternally Yours Liquid Lipstick Set.

IMAG0570

The second item that I got from the Stila holiday sets was this set of six mini liquid lipsticks. For some reason, even though these had always been a must try for me, I continually overlooked them. Somewhere inside of my brain, I thought they weren’t a matte finish. Please don’t ask me where that idea got lodged, because I couldn’t tell you. In any case, even if I hadn’t gotten the other palette I was determined to get this just so that I could finally try it. There is also a smaller set of three that I think is $20 or $25 that I’ve only seen in store in Ulta, but I wanted more choices and figured this $39 set was a better choice for me.

Zoeva Cosmetics Germany; Luxe Colour Blush & Luxe Cream Lipstick.

IMAG1805_1

 

This is gonna be a simpler, shorter (I hope) post than the last, because I only have four items. Along with the palettes, I also got two blushes and two lipsticks. The last few items was a bit of a mixed bag. I liked or could work with some items, but was disappointed in others. Let’s start off with what I liked better.

Tarte Rainforest of The Sea Drench Lip Splash Lipstick.

IMAG3221

 

I’m not the hugest fan of Tarte lip products. I find that a lot of times the textures are so thick that they can come off looking rather clayish. Which is a good and bad thing. Good cause that means that they have a lot of coverage. But bad in that the high coverage can make them look unnatural and not only cakey, but collect in the creases of the lips.
