A year too late, but I finally got my hands on the Lime Crime Venus Palette! I purchased this through Dolls Kill during the BOGO sale after Christmas. On Dolls Kill, the palette retails for $32, which is why I’m glad I waited instead of rushing to get it when it first came out and paying a premium. My NEED for this palette never died even after all the controversy the brand has been experiencing (I know, I know), so I decided to purchase it through a third party site just to be safe.
Just a little fall outfit inspiration. Here in Dallas, the weather cannot make up its mind, but it’s alright with me! It was such a beautiful day to explore outside. This cute corduroy button up skirt is from Target. I love how the rich oxblood color offsets the lighter pinks and tans. Since this skirt is highwaisted and appears shorter against my long legs, I paired it with an oversized Chelsea & Violet cardigan from Dillard’s to balance out the overall look. The cardigan helps bring the look together and take the focus off how much leg is showing. For taller girls, it’s important to utilize larger proportions to offset long limbs. A lesson learned from RuPaul 😉
Recently, over on R/BrownBeauty there was a red lipstick challenge. A CHANCE TO PLAY IN A SOME RED LIPSTICKS! In essence the challenge was to wear the red lipsticks in your collection in consecutive days, although, I had a blast doing it in a matter of hours. The point was so that you’ll remember why you bought them and fall in love again. And who can turn down a good makeup challenge? Here were a few of my personal favorite red lipsticks I tested for the challenge.
I’ve been on an indie cosmetics buying spree lately! These are two highlighters are from Bitter Lace Beauty on Etsy. I ran across these highlighters on Instagram after seeing swatches of these beautifully pressed pigments. I’m so excited to share my new find with you all.
Finally got around to swatching some of the Shiro Cosmetics eyeshadow pigments I ordered ages ago.
If you have’t heard of Shiro Cosmetics, I highly recommend checking them out. It’s an indie makeup brand that offers many vegan and cruelty free products. The products are handcrafted in tiny batches and quite perfectly blends makeup/cosmetics with geeky and nerdy themes. One of my personal favorite collections is the Seven Kingdoms collection (Game of Thrones). There’s even a shade called “Nic Cage Raking Leaves on a Brisk October Afternoon”! They offer a VARIETY of shades, hues, and colors of eyeshadows, lip colors, and blushes so there’s something that will work for any personality and skin tone. AND, if you’re not ready to commit, THEY OFFER SAMPLE SIZES so you can test all the things your precious heart desires!! Who can say no to SAMPLES?? Not me, that’s who…
