Venomous Villains Anticipation!

27 Sep

credit- Musings of a Muse

It’s almost here. Thursday is the day. I have no idea why there was no early reveal on these ANYWHERE CLOSE to the city of Chicago, but luckily I have survived thus far. As I’m still a self-funded beauty blogger at this point, I only pre-ordered a mini haul, most of which is coincidentally in the above picture. I’ll have reviews, swatches and maybe a look or two when I pick them up, but for now I can only pine for the package that awaits me at Nordstroms concierge. Ah, to be that bag.

Coastal Scents 88 Palettes

27 Sep

That picture makes me happy. What makes me even happier is that I’ve ordered four different Coastal Scents 88 palettes, the Original Matte, Shimmer, Metal Mania and Warm. I have heard nothing but good things about them, and I’m surprised it took me so long to get my hands on them. 356 shadows, $70, free shipping. Deal of the century. They should be in the mail now, and this plus my Venomous Villains (to be picked up at Nordstroms Thursday!) will make quite the haul for the week. I’ll have swatches, reviews, dupes and looks as soon as these come in the mail, so stay tuned.

Look: Bright Green and Black

26 Sep

This is a basic black and bright color look where the main color is interchangeable. I was in a Green mood, so I went with that. Ignore that I rubbed the corner of my eye and didn’t notice until it was too late- the black should connect at the corner. Please leave any questions/comments below!

Products Used:

Base: Urban Decay Primer Potion (Original)
