Sugarpill released the Pumpkin Spice eyeshadow shade last year in a limited batch and it had such a great success that they repeated it this year adding the liquid lipsticks as well.

Gold Gold Gold! I’ve had this post in mind for a long time, since a friend asked a comparison between different gold eyeshadows I had.

After last episode’s look into some cozy Fall routines and recipes (here), Marta from Caffelatte for Breakfast has thrown a new challenge at us for the fifth episode of the #FallInLoveTAG2. This time we are exploring Fall Trends by taking inspiration from Pantone’s Fashion Color Report for Fall 2016 (here).

Black Friday 2016 Beauty Deals

black friday 2016 beauty deals
Black Friday is from tradition the day after the American holiday Thanksgiving and the kickstart of Christmas shopping. Therefore most American shops offer on Black Friday (25.11, day after Thanksgiving) and Cyber Monday (28.11, Monday after Thanksgiving) great deals and discounts.

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 ~24$) unless you’re prepared to pay around 40% of your purchase extra.
