In a Black Hat, Mad About Plaid, no Funk in My Monks

In a Black Hat, Mad About Plaid, no Funk in My Monks

It’s been a while since I’ve made an outfit post. With the corona still very much out there and my recent sideways growth, dressing up has been less than appealing. I find myself going shopping for coffee and bread in the same comfortable, still fitting sweatpants that I’ve slept in the previous night. I really needed to get out of this funk and put on some heels. So I did.

Review, Swatches | KIKO Dolce Diva Powder Foundation SPF 50 in 03 Light Beige

Review, Swatches | KIKO Dolce Diva Powder Foundation SPF 50 in 03 Light Beige

It’s been a while since I last tried KIKO’s base makeup. I’m not big on second chances, and my previous experience was not amazing, but KIKO seems to have matured in that department, so why not? I decided to let it show me if it truly changed, and so I set up a date with their Dolce Diva Powder Foundation in the shade Light Beige.

Review, Swatches, Comparisons | Pat McGrath Sublime Skin Highlighter in Lunar Nude (Holiday 2021)

Review, Swatches, Comparisons | Pat McGrath Sublime Skin Highlighter in Lunar Nude (Holiday 2021)

I promise this is the last post I’m making about the Celestial Odyssey collection. Yes, holiday season as come and gone, but Pat McGrath’s collections tend to stick around for a while, and products once sold out come back in stock, so I think this post might still be relevant. Fingers crossed.

Review | Moschino M Bag with Chain Link Shoulder Strap

Review | Moschino M Bag with Chain Link Shoulder Strap

It’s funny that bag reviews, although not the core of what this blog is about, keep getting me consistent views. I guess it makes sense, designer bags are an investment. Would it be so that I would have all the money in the world, I would get and review them all. You know, for the sake of the community. For today, I have the Moschino orange and blue polka dot M Bag.

Review, Swatches | MAC Viva Glam Keith Haring Collection (Canal Blue, Red Haring, St. Marks Yellow)

Review, Swatches | MAC Viva Glam Keith Haring Collection (Canal Blue, Red Haring, St. Marks Yellow)

As I’ve mentioned in my 2021 favourites, I got the entire new Viva Glam lipstick collection from MAC. I had every reason to: it is in collaboration with an iconic artist, the design and colour story is unique and collectible, and I’m a master at delegating my problem with lack of makeup storage for future me.

My Visit to the Guerlain Champs Élysées Flagship Store, a Must Do in Paris

My Visit to the Guerlain Champs Élysées Flagship Store, a Must Do in Paris

Of all the widely distributed fragrance brands, Guerlain is my favourite. It’s obvious that it was started by a perfumer and not a fashion house that eventually launched a beauty line. Guerlain has 193 years of history and it shows. Their shop in Champs Élysées dates back to 1914 and it’s an ode to sensorial beauty that is, in my opinion, a what-to-see must in Paris.

Review, Swatches | MAC Petallic Metallic Extra Dimension Skinfinish

Review, Swatches | MAC Petallic Metallic Extra Dimension Skinfinish

Petallic Metallic is going to be released with MAC’s future Spring collection, with new and beautiful packaging, but it has been released before with a MAC Mother’s Day kit. And I’m the girl who, even though she makes no money off of this blog and stopped having any room for new makeup 10 highlighters ago, bought this just to be one of the first ones to publish a review.

Review, Swatches | MAC 2021 Hypnotizing Holiday Collection – Shadeshifter Duochrome Eyeshadows in Ho Ho Hocus, Prrrplexing, Calling Your Bluff

Review, Swatches | MAC 2021 Hypnotizing Holiday Collection – Shadeshifter Duochrome Eyeshadows in Ho Ho Hocus, Prrrplexing, Calling Your Bluff

I told I wasn’t done with this collection. After falling in love with the Shadeshifter eyeshadow in Right Before Your Eyes, I was looking for an excuse to get the remaining shadows that piqued my interest, and the Black Friday sale was the perfect opportunity.

Review, Swatches | Pat McGrath Mega Mothership Celestial Odyssey Palette (Holiday 2021)

Review, Swatches | Pat McGrath Mega Mothership Celestial Odyssey Palette (Holiday 2021)

Mother of god, the Mega Mothership palettes are the mother-lode of eyeshadows. It’s a great value for 18 Pat McGrath eyeshadows, and it’s something I’m becoming excited to see every year for holiday season. This year’s palette is currently on sale. It’s no secret I love Celestial Odyssey, since I’ve included it in my 2021 favourites, but read on if you want to see the full review (or just need some more convincing).

Holiday Makeup Haul | MAC, Dior, Tarte, Krash Kosmetics, Pat McGrath, Revolution

Holiday Makeup Haul | MAC, Dior, Tarte, Krash Kosmetics, Pat McGrath, Revolution

Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Christmas, boxing day, and generally because I’ve been a very good girl – to myself, mostly – these are the reasons I have a decently sized holiday makeup haul to share.
