SWATCHES & REVIEW: KBShimmer Summer 2015 Collection Part Two


I'm so so excited to post about these KBShimmer Nail Polishes. I won a giveaway that they were doing with Nail It! Magazine and got nine polishes from their Summer 2015 Collection. These were my first KBShimmer nail polishes and I already know that they won't be my last. I'm happy to swatch and review all these colors in the post.

ANNOUNCEMENT: Find Me on Youtube!

If you missed seeing in my last Makeup Geek post, I wanted to announce that I've set up my own Youtube channel! I've been hemming and hawing about setting up a Youtube for ages now and I'm glad to have finally take the plunge. I plan on doing accompanying videos for blog posts I have here in addition to covering other topics exclusively on the channel. I plan to have swatches/reviews on drugstore, mid-end, and higher end brands in addition to creating content focused on indie makeup brands and other things that are easier in a video format than a written format.

I hope you decide to subscribe! I plan on closed captioning all my videos in English so they'll be as accessible to as many English speakers as possible. Thank you if you have subscribed!

Here's my most recent video on the Saucebox Cosmetics Batalash palette.

SWATCHES & REVIEW: Makeup Geek Foiled Eyeshadows in Charmed and Daydreamer

I Purchased This Affiliate Links

In planning for PHAMExpo, I knew that Makeup Geek would have to be the first booth I checked out for fear that their wares would be sold out. I ended up being their first customer on Saturday thanks to my exuberance. I logically know that their items are so inexpensive but I'm cheap and still prefer saving a little money on shipping and also have the opportunity for instant gratification.

I picked up two of the foiled eyeshadows from their recent expansion of the product line, Charmed and Day Dreamer along with a few other items that I'll review separately.

SWATCHES & REVIEW: Saucebox Cosmetics Batalash Palette

I Purchased This Affiliate Links

I've been a fan of Saucebox Cosmetics and the women behind Batalash for quite some time so it's no surprise that when I heard that they collaborated for a palette, I had to get my hands on it. Thankfully Saucebox were at PHAMExpo so I could see it in person before purchasing. I ain't ashamed to admit that one of the reasons why I got this palette was because it reminded me so much of the Melt Cosmetics Dark Matter stack. Of course I'm hella cheap and instead of paying $48 for that palette, I paid $60 for double the colors (plus the Melt eyeshadows are 3.57 grams each while the Saucebox colors are 4 grams each).
