Aromaleigh’s More Human Than Human Collection: Review

Hey friends!

A while back Aromaleigh was having a giveaway of their upcoming “More Human Than Human” Collection, based on Blade Runner. I entered it, and I actually won the deluxe sample set! I was so excited! The only other time I have ever won a giveaway was when I was 6 and I won a Fievel Goes West VHS.


Yes, I won this. Be jealous.

Needless to say, winning this Aromaleigh Collection is wayyyyyy more exciting.

I originally wasn’t planning to purchase this collection because my eye shadow collection runneth over, but wow, the colors are gorgeous. If you’ve been on the fence about this set, you might want to check out these shadows.

And good news: for the next few days, this entire collection is on sale!

Hey friends!

I’ve got a different take on my EOTD post to share with you this week!

I recently picked up a few things from the Glamour Doll Eyes’ Anti-Valentine’s Day Collection. Since I didn’t grab too much, (in an attempt to stay somewhat on budget), I’ll be sharing a few of the items I bought in this EOTD post.

So it’s kinda like a mini-review and EOTD post, all rolled up into one! Check it out below!

Subscription Sunday: Aromaleigh’s Ephemera Box-March 2015

Hey friends!

How’s your Sunday going? I’m not enjoying the jump ahead in Daylight Savings Time, so I’ve been protesting by taking a nap.

Today I’ve got my Aromaleigh March Ephemera Box to share with you! This has easily become one of my favorite subscriptions in the course of it’s first three months. I love the quality and color of the products we’ve been getting, and using them all in a look has been a fun little project for me.

This month’s Norse mythology themed box might be my favorite so far, Check it out below!

February Favorites!

Hey friends!

I’ve missed you so! How have you been?! Anything exciting happening in your life or the internet? I heard about a dress, but that’s about it. (Grad school turns you into a hermit.)

I finally got through my slightly hellish week of projects and midterms, and I’m feeling pretty good about life! This morning, I finally got to swatch some eye shadow, and let me tell you, putting tape on my skin has never been more satisfying. (TBH, I guess this is not hard to achieve.)

Anyway, while I get caught up with all the lovely pretties coming your way on the blog this week, I’ve got my February Favorites! You know, on March 7th. Not belated or anything.

PS: Did I tell you I missed you all?!

EOTD/BOTD: Aromaleigh’s Luperci

Hey friends!

I guess this is more like EOTN? Or EOthenextD? Either way, I wanted to do more one more look with the Aromaleigh Feast of Lupercal Collection before February ended. This collection’s been getting some rotation in my daily life, so I made sure to get another picture in of one of my favorite shades!

And also the beer for today, Shiner’s Birthday Beer Stout, completely took me by surprise. I actually did a beer double take. Yes, that happens.

So let’s check out EOTD/BOTD!

Subscription Sunday: Visage Box by Hello Waffle-February 2015

Hey friends!

I think everyone and their mom has already posted their review of Hello Waffle’s February Visage Box, but I finally have mine ready! (My mom did not do a review, though.)

I’ve been playing around with this box for about two weeks now, and I still haven’t been able max it out yet. I’ve got about two more looks I want to do with the products, but I only have one face. UGH. Why won’t Mr. Danger let me put makeup on him?

What I’m saying is it was another good month with Hello Waffle’s Visage box!

Look how pretty it is! Perfect for February!

EOTD/BOTD: Heavy Breathing Cat

Hey friends!

I don’t have class tonight! Whooooooooot. I’ll be celebrating at Alamo Drafthouse with some coworkers who have dragged me into seeing a certain movie. (Hint: It’s not Taken 3).

Anyway. Today I’ve got one of my favorite Hello Waffle eye shadows of all time. (I feel like I say this all the time about Hello Waffle. But this time, it’s really my favorite….until she creates my next new favorite. And then I’ll have a new EOTD post to do. The struggle.)

The shadow is Heavy Breathing Cat, from the 1,000 Likes Collection. The name itself should be reason to love it. But. Wait until you see this guy.

The BOTD is Helios Farmhouse Ale (formerly V Saison by Victory Brewing Company). I picked this beer up on a whim when the bestie was in town, not expecting it to be much, and I have been pleasantly surprised by it!

So check out the eyes and beers in this weeks EOTD/BOTD!

Subscription Saturday: Glamour Doll Eyes’ OTM- February 2015

Hey friends!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Have I told you lately that I love you? You guys are the reason I blog! (Besides the glitter.) Thank you for being such awesome and supportive readers! And if you’re just joining me recently, heyooo and welcome! (I like exclamation points. You will learn that soon.)

Anyways, I got my February Glamour Doll Eyes’ OTM a few days ago, and the theme, “Any Excuse for Chocolate” fits perfectly with today. (You guys, I’ve had so much chocolate today. For breakfast and lunch.)

Mr. Danger and I are keeping it low key today, but tomorrow we’re going to a Valentine’s Beer and Cheese Pairing at a local brewery. I’ll most likely be rocking this month’s OTM, “Not to Be Truffled With”.

So check it out!

Hey friends.

No exclamation marks today. I am dragggginnnggg. It’s been one of those weeks. A flat tire, broken appliances, 14 hour days kinda week. Oy.

But the good news is that it’s Friday and I can sleep in tomorrow! (Although most likely I’ll wake up early and swatch makeup because I am a weirdo.)

Thankfully today’s Happy Hour post is filled with beer and makeup I love. I have my 3 favorite drugstore neutral palettes and one of my favorite Imperial Porters, Karbach’s Hellfighter.

So before I pass out on this keyboard, let’s take it away to Happy Hour!
