NARS Cassiopeia Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow Review, Photos, Swatches



When these eyeshadows first appeared in NARS’ promo pics, I was not that interested. I don’t know what it was about them, but they didn’t draw me in. But I ended up buying more than one of them (a rarity for me with new products), so something happened. That something was Sephora (isn’t it always? Beauty bloggers back me up here!). I was meandering Sephora, like I tend to do, and randomly swiped my finger across a pan of Cassiopeia. And that was that!

What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag


Hello everyone! I just got back from a two week trip with my family and packed plenty of makeup to wear during it. Today I’m going to show you all the products I brought and why I brought them.

You can probably find a similar style at Target though this one is several years old.

Tarina Tarantino Eye Dream Hyperliner in Spark of Envy Review, Photos, Swatches


As I mentioned in my NARS Barrow Street review, bright eyeliners are a summer (and all-around) staple. This beautiful teal is one of my favorites!

Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Inner Rim Liner Review, Photos, Swatches


Do you own a good nude or white eye liner to brighten your eyes? I didn’t, but I really wanted one. As a student, I sleep way too little and could always use some good under eye brightening. This kind of eyeliner is a great solution to tired looking eyes. So I put this one on my ever-full Sephora wishlist and a great friend of mine decided to get it for me for my birthday. Tarte’s Inner Rim Brightener/Liner retails for $19 for .009 oz.
