Posting

I haven’t been posting because I’ve been struggling with how/what to post.

I want this to be a place I can go more in depth with reviews and products but if I forget something on a day then I don’t post.

So here are my looks for the last couple of days.

I’m in the middle of moving and am limited to what makeup I have, which I’m kind of liking lol.

Tarte Pro palette for the eyes
Colourpop Main Squeeze on the eyes
Natasha Denona Biba palette for the eyes

I started June makeup free so this has been it for June!

ND Biba Palette

This is the second time I’ve used this palette and it surprised me by coming apart on me.

I’m not sure exactly what happened, the shadow cleanly came out of the pan. Unfortunately I was in the car and I spent a few minutes trying to figure out what to do.

After collecting myself I was able to maneuver the shadow back in the pan and used a towel to press it back temporarily.

I’m not going to lie, it completely bummed me out. For $129 you would think I wouldn’t have any issues; I was able to repress it but I’m considering exchanging it anyway so I can avoid risking it falling out again.

Has this happened to anyone else?

What would you do?

Here’s today’s look using the palette

Shop my stash

I’m still going strong with sticking to a handful of palettes I selected for the month and, fortunately, I selected one that fit in perfect for today’s theme.

I decided to shop my stash and only use products I’ve had for a while but haven’t touched. Here’s what I used

  • Too Faced original Chocolate Soleil bronzer
  • Too Faced Natural Love palette
  • Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless foundation in 310
  • Lorac Blush
  • Tarte Shape Tape
  • Colourpop super satin lip in 951
  • Anastasia brow pomade (this is one of two things I use and didn’t have anything else to use)
  • Becca Highlight in Opal (not pictured)

Overall I’m happy with my look and I’m glad I got to use old products I used to love

Here are the colors I used from the palette

Bad Habit Aphrodite

When I first heard of the Hush website and Bad Habit Beauty I wasn’t interested in the products due to how identical the palettes are to the original ones they’re duping.

I kept watching YouTube videos on the palettes and hearing how great the quality was given how inexpensive they were but still, I wasn’t interested.

Then a few weeks ago Hush was having a massive sale which marked pretty much all the palettes down to about $7 or less. I figured this was the perfect opportunity to try the products and my ethics went out the door.

I hadn’t used them yet because I had committed to only using four palettes throughout lent.

It turns out I’m a weak Catholic and failed with that commitment so here is my Bad Habit Aphrodite look

The colors had great pay off but did have a fair amount of kick up (which I personally love). I had to make sure to tap off extra pigment before I applied it to my lid.
