Edward Bess Quad Royale

Edward Bess Quad Royale in 02 Monte Carlo – Review and Swatches

This was another one of my first purchases post-ban. I love trying out new brands and when Edward Bess offerings came out I was anxious to try them out. Of course, the “Golden Coral” colored Quad caught my eye and it was in my shopping cart pretty quickly. Here are my thoughts…

OCC Lip Tar Set (Brights)

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar Set (Brights) – Review

Beauty.com recently started offering most OCC Lip Tars in their lineup. However, before that they also offered two sets a Brights and a Neutral/Natural set (the neutral set has since been discontinued). The sets consisted of 5 Lip Tars (normally $14 USD Each) and OCC’s Precision Lip Brush ($18 USD alone) for $49.50 USD. Back in late April I jumped on this deal – I had a few Drugstore.com Dollars and a discount promo code available so the whole set ended up costing me a piddly $29.44!! How’s that for a deal?

Lancome Rouge in Love in 146B Miss Coquelicot

Lancome Rouge In Love in 146B Miss Coquelicot – Review and Swatch

I know this line came in a while ago (by now, everyone’s seen Emma Watson’s ads for these lipsticks). It was one of my first ban’s-over purchases way back in early April…but i’m only just now reviewing it. Lancome describes their offering as a 6-hour wear, vibrant, lipstick that “is surprisingly featherlight, offering delightful comfort.” Well, late or no the world always needs more reviews so here is mine!

Urban Decay 24 7 Glide-On Eye Pencil

Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencil in Perversion – Review and Swatches

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…

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Tipsy

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush in Tipsy – Review and Swatch

Tipsy, tipsy, tipsy! I’ve been hearing a lot about this blush ever since I started my makeup journey. However, I have had almost nothing but bad experiences with Tarte Products and every time I swatched this in-store I was disappointed (yes!) at the pigmentation. So I put off buying it. Over, and over and over. But finally! I couldn’t take it anymore. I could always return it if it was a disaster right?
