(Re-Upload) Makeup Revolution Chocolate Vice Palette. Sweet Peach Dupe Maybe? Hmmm…

This one goes out to all the girls that wanted a Too Faced Sweet Peach palette and were unable to get one, because they were completely sold out everywhere in under five minutes. It goes out to all the ladies that were completely and utterly disgusted by the s&%tty marketing tactics employed by Too Faced in making this palette less than widely available. And this…is to all those people who purchased 10 palettes and turned around and sold them on eBay for over a hundred dollars. A giant FU to those a-holes.

Makeup isn’t supposed to be this hard man. I mean this palette had been so hyped up on social media for so many months that Too Faced knew the demand would be crazy. Yet, they still didn’t make enough for their website (or enable enough servers to keep the site from crashing yet again, what is that they say about experience informing wisdom? Clearly we’ve been lied to) or enough available to their distribution partners like Sephora and Ulta. By the time that I was able to get a Sweet Peach palette (Ulta released it two weeks early for 24hrs to platinum members), I was so thoroughly disgusted by all the shenanigans that I passed on it just on principle. Fast forward months later, and I found myself unwittingly purchasing two dupes, having no idea that’s what they were. I’m only gonna do one today though.

(Re-Upload) Burberry Beauty; Lip And Cheek Blooms

IMAG2074_1

 

Really, I got these because of the pretty. Like for real, if you look at these on any website and don’t immediately reach for your credit card (or you know, some willing sucker’s) then you have the fortitude of job my friend. I however, do not, so buy I did.

The Burberry Lip & Cheek Blooms are multi-use products for cheeks and (duh) lips. You guys know how I feel about multi-use products , I think most of them do one job well, and not the other so more often than not I don’t even bother to try them as lip products because of this is where they fail. In this case I didn’t either.

There are six colours available in the range, and of the six colours I got five Hydrangea, which I purchased after all the others and didn’t swatch because when I received it, it was a lot cooler looking than it looked online, so I gave it to someone and I really hate giving people things that my fingers have been in. The other colours I got were Peony, Orange Blossom, Poppy and Purple Tulip.

(Re-Upload) Burberry Beauty: Foundations

IMAG2062_1

 

I think it’s been pretty well documented that I am in fact, a foundation and blush hoarder. You know what though? I’m not even ashamed of it. The foundation came about because even though I moved south and permanently became my northern summer colour, out of habit I kept purchasing the lighter shade that I’d normally have used nine months out of the year, and being very confused by it. It was one of those things where, I’m in the habit of not buying something that I can only use three months out of the year, even though that three months had become the nine. Stupid, I know, but my brain was still in New York time so to speak. Then I rediscovered the peachy-ness in me undertones which set off a whole new hunt. But whatever, I’m rambling as per usual.
