That I’m a single eyeshadow collector doesn’t come to a surprise with all the recent posts on swatches and comparisons (here and here). So when an indie brand that sells single eyeshadow pans got onto my radar, it was just a matter of time before I placed an order.

In makeup groups on Facebook I read how for $1.50 you can get the starting products to make the exact same highlighter shades by buying micas at TKB Trading.

Anti Haul #2 – Lip products I’m not gonna buy January 2017

On this blog we talk about buying makeup, wanting makeup, and that’s not so good for our wallets, mine or yours. After the success of the first Anti Haul (here), here we go again with another episode. In this video and post I explain what I am NOT gonna buy among the latest lipstick releases and why. There are so many lip products out there to talk about that I thought I’d keep it strictly to those for this episode. This is an original idea by the amazing Kimberly Clark on Youtube, she is such a fun character to watch, I really recommend you to check her out!
