Swatch and Review: MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Shadow Enhanced Eye Duo

Make Up For Ever had released Aqua Shadow pencils a few summers back, meant to be a more convenient version of their famous Aqua Cream shadows. I love the MUFE Aqua Creams, so I was naturally intrigued by the Aqua Shadows.

OOTD and FOTD: My LBD from YesStyle for NYE

Hope everyone had a safe and happy Christmas! We lost power from a massive ice storm, so keeping warm was definitely a priority. I’m getting a little sick, but I refuse to miss another New Year’s Eve. One year I was down with the flu and it was horrible being alone and sick in the house while everyone was out.

I’m wearing a Little Black Dress for New Year’s Eve. Everyone’s got their favourite LBD – mine is this one by 59 Seconds from YesStyle.ca

OOTD and FOTD: Not-So-Ugly Holiday Sweater Party

My workplace was having a party where we were supposed to wear ugly holiday sweaters. Some people showed up with ugly non-holiday sweaters, some with non-ugly holiday sweaters. I saw this sweater on YesStyle and thought that sweater was wintery enough to be a holiday sweater.

Another Sephora haul?! Too Faced and Buxom

I just couldn’t resist. I have no self control 😦

  1. Too Faced Natural Flirt Makeup Collection – online only
  2. Buxom Flirt Alert – A Stunning Sultry Eye Duo

Sephora and TheBalm haul from October

Back in October, I made a post commending my friend angelandthings for hauling makeup for us from the US.  I got everything back in January, but have barely started using any of it yet! I am obsessed with getting eye makeup especially, but hardly ever wear makeup on a daily basis. And while the variety is lovely to have, I find myself sticking to the same few products for a neutral look, just because I’m too lazy to get something new or I’m not adventurous enough to wear vibrant colours without an occasion.

Here is the Sephora haul:

MAKE UP FOREVER Lesson 1 Natural Eyes (far left):

  1. 2 full sized 0.21 oz Aqua Creams: 13 Warm Beige; 15 Taupe
  2. 2 x 0.025 oz Aqua Eyes: 0L Mat Black; 2L Pearly Brown
