I recently joined Instagram. My main reason is it’s great for entering contests! But, I am posting some swatches as I prepare my IMATS blog post, so follow me here to get some sneak peeks!
I received this Make-Up Sealant in an Ipsy bag, but you can purchase a full-size here for $12.99. It looks like it is also available at Target.
I gave this product a go over the last few weeks, and I like the way it works. Here is my before:
And after a long, 11 hour day:
This is with no touch-ups of anything. You can tell by my brows that the sealant really held the makeup in place. If I had brought powder with me, my face would have looked perfect all day. I think this product is great for the price point, and I will likely pick this up for an upcoming trip!
I purchased 2 NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams at Ulta a few weeks ago because they were on sale and I was dying to try Copenhagen! I grabbed Copenhagen and Ibiza.
All of these are photos of Copenhagen. It is much deeper than it photographs, and is a burgundy color. I love it! Your lips definitely need to be scrubbed and moisturized for these creams!
Ibiza is too orange for me, but it’s a pretty color!
I’m glad I picked these up, and I know Copenhagen is going to get a ton of use this autumn and winter!
I loooooove shopping indie. You would never have guessed, huh? I recently made a couple purchases from a new jewelry shop on etsy called Litany Things. I love Halloween, and it’s even better to find pieces that I can incorporate into my wardrobe year-round. The other thing I love is that you can customize the length of the necklaces! I tend to like my necklaces a little longer, so that’s perfect for me.
The description for this necklace from the shop: Halloween is coming! The Nocturnal earrings and necklace are the first of my Halloween designs. These designs are going to be something a bit different. Much simpler than what I normally do, but I’m absolutely in love with them, and I hope you will be too!
This listing is for one Nocturnal necklace, comprised of two opaque dark purple bicones, four hematite star beads, and one pewter bat charm, attached to a customizable length of silver-finished chain. If a chain length is not specified, my default necklace length is approximately 50cm.
The bat charm on this necklace is approximately 22mm long.
And today I received my 2nd order! I am participating in a Halloween swap with some online friends, and I ordered a necklace for my swap partner. I couldnt resist ordering one for myself as well! I cant share a photo of the gift, but I included it in the photo so you can see how things are packaged.
I love the detail on this skull! I requested a length of 24″ on this one so that I can layer it with other necklaces. I plan to wear this tomorrow, and I am sure you will see it in upcoming photos.
If you are looking for some cute accessories and want to support a small business, check out Litany Things!
Esoteric Aesthetic is a new indie makeup company. I purchased 4 full-sizes and 7 samples, and received 2 samples for free and some candy. I’m really excited to share these swatches with you, so let’s start with the full-sizes.
All swatches are over DeLeon Eye Primer.
I looooooove golden pinks, so Kether is one of my favorites, and I used it twice this week!
Kether, paired with Mercury Dime
Now onto the samples:
I definitely need full-sizes of Yesod, Maiden and Hedgeriding. All of the colors applied smoothly and were easy to work with. Full-sizes cost $5 and samples are $1. I love trying new companies, and it is even better when they turn out great! I highly recommend trying out Esoteric Aesthetic.
