Hello Waffe : Visage - September 2016

Hey there geekonistas!

Woohoo! I'm leaving on vacation tomorrow to Disney World and I am so excited! I'm going to be on vacation mode so there will be no posts next week, but if you want to see what I'm up to you can always check out my Instagram, I'll be posting lots of pics! But before that, I promised that my Hello Waffle Visage review would not be late this month, so I wanted to make sure I share it with you before I leave.

Innocent + Twisted Alchemy: i+t alchemist - September 2016

Hey there geekonistas!

I hope this week is starting out well for you! I have three days of work left before my vacation starts and while I haven't quite started counting out the minutes and seconds yet, I'm getting close! Of course, according to the weather it's going to rain the entire time I'm there... literally the sun will not come out until the day after I leave, but I'm okay with that. At least I won't get sunburned, right? Anyway, in the short time before my brain goes on vacation without me, I thought I would share with you this month's i+t alchemist from Innocent + Twisted Alchemy!

Fyrinnae Pressed Shadows

Hey there geekonistas!

A couple months ago, for my July favorites, I included the "Steampunk" pressed eye shadow from Fyrinnae. Well, since then my collection of pressed shadows has... grown a bit. I blame this wholly on the Labor Day Sale. Okay, I mean.. I bought some before the sale, but... still. I'm blaming it. In any case, I thought since I have a pretty wide range now, it would be fun to go through and swatch them for you and give you my thoughts.

Brija Cosmetics: Halloween Heroes(ish) Collection

Hey there geekonistas!

I'm so excited today! I'm bringing you a review of a brand-new (to me) brand, Brija Cosmetics! I first encountered Brija Cosmetics on Instagram, where it has quite a loyal following. Their themes and philosophy seemed to be my cup of tea, so I thought I should check them out.

Shiro Cosmetics : Elemental Glows Collection

Hey there geekonistas!

I hope you're all doing well today. I have a trip coming up in a few weeks so I'm almost at the "running around like a chicken" phase of getting ready. Almost, but not quite, so before the storm hits I thought it would be a good time to take a look at the launch of a brand new product from Shiro Cosmetics!

Shiro Cosmetics is a long running indie makeup company that produces vegan, cruelty-free loose eye shadow pigments, blushes, highlighters, bronzers, contour powders, and lip products. They also stock products from brands like Detrivore, Femme Fatale, Sayuri, Bettie Pain, Ms. Sparkle and Victorian Disco on their site.

Today I'm checking out their latest collection, the Elemental Glows! These are nine new cream highlighters based on all the different Eveelutions, and they just have the best lid art ever. Unfortunately, I just got the sample sizes, which don't come with lid art, but if there were stickers available I'd snatch them up in a second!

Hello Waffle: Visage August 2016

Hey there geekonistas!

Yes, I know, my Hello Waffle Visage review is going up late again! I'm working hard on getting caught up and hopefully this month I'll be on time. I am super excited about the August theme too, since it's based on "A Midsummer Night's Dream" by William Shakespeare - which is not only my favorite play of his, but also served as inspiration for my wedding!

Special Saturday Post: Labor Day Sales!

Hey there geekonistas!

I just wanted to post a quick little entry today! I know not everyone is in the US and therefore not celebrating Labor Day.. in fact, I don't even think people inside the US really celebrate Labor Day... except as an excuse for a three day weekend! But in any case, there are a TON of sales going on this weekend as everyone clears out their summer inventories to make room for fall, so I thought I would share some of the ones I have found!
