Let’s get back into the swing of things, shall we? My life’s been taking all sorts of topsy turvy turns lately, but that doesn’t mean I’ve stopped spending COPIOUS amounts of money on that goo we all love to slap on our face. One such goo…kind of, is Milani’s infamous Paint palette. Released for Spring 2012, it promised all sorts of highly pigmented, neon-bright wonders. Now…did it deliver?
I don’t know about you, but for a long time I thought all eyeliner pencils were created equal. I was proven horribly, horribly wrong through experience. So – like any good beauty blogger, I began a search for the darkest, most pigmented liner ever. Many recommendations lead me to the same path – Urban Decay’s 24/7 Eye Pencil in Perversion. And here is what I found…
I knooooooow! I knoooooow. I have to not-review palettes that are no longer on sale. At least this too has several permanent shade shadows that you’ll be able to get a feel for. Too Faced’s Sweet Dreams Palette was a Holiday 2011 release, it was sold for $52 USD if memory serves correctly. But I didn’t pay for it! Nope. This, dear readers, was another win from DGS Beauty’s Birthday Giveaway. So this picture-laden review is dedicated to the amazing Dinah!
The last time I purchased an eyeliner was back when I reviewed the Essence Gel Eyeliner in June of last year. And if i’m not mistaken, it actually took me a while to get that review up! Sadly my little essence pot dried out, a little over a half year later (Is that impressive? Someone tell me!) I still had a bit left but with its death imminent, I decided to seek out a replacement. I ended up buying two (a pencil and another potted liner.) I think you can tell which this is.
This gel offering from Maybelline has been making its rounds on the blogosphere for a while now; and yes i’m going to review it anyway. Mostly because I really can’t stand the idea of posting another blush review after the monstrosity that was the week-without-Larry (the laptop.) Oh. He’s totally back now guys! Well, knock on wood. He goes in for more work than…some celebrity.
Okay so, anyone who’s read a beauty blog has probably come across the wide variety of lashes sold by KK Center HK. Their selection is insanely massive and they are eager to work with bloggers; offering sponsorships and samples in a beautiful exemplification of what the blogging review world is all about – real people trying real products and giving real opinions.
It’s not huge news. It’s happened to most of the beauty bloggers I follow already – so why was I so absolutely giddy when I was contacted by KK Center HK with an offer to send me a set of lashes to try out? It’s all about legitimacy! It’s been less than a year (hint hint: expect a surprise for SB’s 1 Year Anni) but I sometimes don’t feel like a legitimate beauty blogger. I’m too dorky, inexperienced and I lack the artistic talent of other ladies online. But somehow, sharing a sponsor makes me feel that much closer to the lovely women I admire online.
Enough gushing though! Onto the lashes!
