Do you know the feeling when there is that one shade you think makes a palette totally worth it? Do you know that voice in your head saying “it’s only 20€, get it!”. Well that’s how I ended up buying the Zoeva Café palette: low price tag and a lime green shade. So since I bought it and used it, how about writing a review and showing you some swatches. I thought it was the perfect content to go up on the blog, separately from Youtube, so let’s get into the Zoeva Cafe palette review and swatches.
Buying base products like foundation and concealer online is super hard so in occasion of the launch of the new Nabla Close Up concealer, I wanted to share a comprehensive comparison of all the concealers I own. So here we are with my concealer swatch comparisons, which doubles as my concealer collection.
I got many questions on the Makeup Geek damaged eyeshadow, and since I just made a few orders, let’s talk about them. Makeup Geek has been periodically releasing damaged stock on their website at a heavy discount, usually 50% off. I have been purchasing from these sales since the beginning because I have only had the best experience. The latest damaged sale was at the beginning of July and I got my hands on lots of shades I was missing in my Makeup Geek collection.
Ah, new palette releases are the toughest times for me (my wallet actually). When Norvina announced the launch of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina palette, my heart skipped a beat, my palms got sweaty, all the symptoms. I own all the current permanent palettes by Anastasia Beverly Hills: Modern Renaissance, Subculture, Prism, Soft Glam, so naturally I wanted to pick up the Norvina palette to complete my collection. Then I went to instagram stories to ask you guys, and my brilliant friend CynthiaIsKillikill took the ham off my eyes (it’s an Italian saying, everything looks better through prosciutto). So I dove into my eyeshadow collection looking for shades that would be Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina palette dupes and went off to wear purple eyeshadow for a few days. It was a process, it was a revelation, read on for what came out.
Let the makeup declutter continue! This is the fifth episode of the decluttering series and I’m going over my eyeshadow palettes and singles. Can you predict how this went? Don’t forget to check out the other episodes of my 2017 decluttering adventure here.
Happy Thanksgiving! I’m getting ready for the big dinner and talking all the latest Black Friday beauty deals and my Back Friday wishlist. I’m also using my Sephora VIB sale purchases to get ready because..NEW GOODIES!
I thought of skipping this post this year, with so many deals already going on, but since I love sales here we go. 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 ~24$) unless you’re prepared to pay around 40% of your purchase extra.
Let’s talk about Holiday collections we’re not gonna buy shall we? Here is my third antihaul, for fun and entertainment.

Let the decluttering begin! It is now official, we’ll be moving back to Europe at the end of December and it’s time to pare down my collection! This is part two, where I declutter my bronzer, blush and highlighter collection.
As I mentioned in my Project Pan post, I am in the process of moving at the end of the year and part of it is reducing the size of my makeup collection to those products I really love and use. I thought it would be fun to bring you with me through my makeup collection declutter.
