Lethal Cosmetics eyeshadows swatches

Lethal Cosmetics eyeshadows swatches review

I have no self-control when it comes to single eyeshadows and customizable palettes. I live life with a “gotta catch ’em all” attitude. So when I saw my talented friend Cynthiaiskillikill use a bright neon green shadow in her inner corner (this look) and found out it was from an indie brand based in Europe, I have been hooked. That’s when my obsession for Lethal Cosmetics eyeshadows started.

Black Friday 2018 & Cyber Monday 2018 Beauty discounts, sales and deals

black friday 2018 beauty deals

Black Friday is the day after the American holiday Thanksgiving and the kickstart of Christmas shopping. Therefore most American shops offer on Black Friday (23/11, day after Thanksgiving) and Cyber Monday (26/11, Monday after Thanksgiving) great deals and discounts. In this globalized world, these days have been adopted by European brands as well to push consumers to start holiday shopping.

This year’s Black Friday 2018 sales already started with a bang, with BeautyBay having 30% off most of their stock. I personally already spent all my money on that sale but nevertheless, let’s see what the new Black Friday sales are. I would recommend you take this week to make a plan, a wishlist, a budget and stick to it. I am horrible at it but I can always recommend this strategy right?

In this post I will try to bring you discounts and codes valid for this occasion in the most used beauty-related webshops. For my European readers, I will signal the American website for which you might be charged customs costs. I would personally not suggest you make big purchases (above ~27$) unless you’re prepared to pay around 40% of your purchase extra. In most European countries custom charges are due for orders outside the EU for a value higher than 22€. This excludes shipping costs, but be careful that some brands will put the price without discount as value (Colourpop, Makeup Geek have done this to me), so you might be charged custom fees regardless. These are around 13€ of administrative costs + 21% VAT. You can check for and indication at invoercalculator.nl.

I will keep updating this list as much as I can leading up to Black Friday and Cyber Monday so keep an eye out for new brands and websites!

Nabla Matte Collection swatches, comparisons

nabla matte collection review swatches

Are you surprised that I couldn’t resist an all-matte single shadow collection? Somehow I’m not ghghg. When Nabla announced that they were coming out with a new collection of eyeshadow refills and they were all matte, I got butterflies in my stomach and giggled in a silly way. I am an eyeshadow refill collector and matte eyeshadows are my passion since I have hooded eyes. So of course I snagged up the full Nabla Matte Collection off of nablacosmetics.com and here are my review and swatches.
