KL Polish Lips + Tips| Review & Swatches

Happy Wednesday!

I have been meaning to post this for almost two weeks. Got the flu and while caring for my 18 month old daughter I got busy. Cannot imagine how crazy life would be with two kids or more.

Anyway... I have the latest collection from KL Polish, Lips + Tips. A collection of nude nail polishes suitable for everyday wear. This collection was designed to match Kathleen Lights x ColourPop Lip colors collaborations.

And now that I am writing this I noticed that I have two Alyssa...Missing Lumiere...When I swatch I put the nail polishes in order that I paint my nails, rarely take notes, unless I need to remember something specific. So, here are five of the six in the collection

On to the swatches...

Morgan Taylor Matadora Collection Fall 2017| Swatches & Review

Hello and Happy Friday!

Today I have a collection from Morgan Taylor: Matadora Fall 2017 Collection.
This collection is ready to help transition into autumn with six crisp, beautiful tones.

The Matadora collection is inspired by the rich culture of Spain. This limited collection features a wide variety of shades that captures the country's vivacious energy and love for life.

As a note from Morgan Taylor: this collection is to honor the beautiful and deep-rooted culture of Spain; it does not aim to glorify bull-fighting or animal cruelty in any way.

Now, with that clarified lets go in to each shade of this collection.

Mikasa Makeup Brushes| Review


It’s been a short while and again I have failed to post regularly here. It’s not because I do not have anything to write about, I just haven’t had the time to sit and write.
While my daughter is happily playing in her jumper watching for the thousandth time a Shakira music video. What can I say, she’s her mother’s daughter J

I had the opportunity to try a few brushes and a makeup sponge from Mikasa Collection.
Although I do not post makeup, or makeup tutorials I am obsessed with makeup and anything related.

ColourPop Pressed Powders| Swatches & Review

First post of 2017!

I told myself that I would post at least twice a week in 2017 and I have already failed miserably :-)
Well, to my defense I’ve had my baby girl with a cold and teething making our nights hard with a cranky baby. Thankfully she’s all good now.

When I first found out that Colourpop was going to have single pressed powder shadows at an affordable price I knew I wanted to try some.
Hopped online and ordered right after watching swatches from youtubers and bloggers. Honestly, I wanted like 20 of them but I contained myself :-)
