Swatch-a-Day 8

*this product was purchased by me!*

Sorry this is getting posted so late. The boyfriend came over and surprised me! Also I have been working hard on my summer classes and preparing for my first day of work tomorrow! My allergies are killing me! Ugh!

Today's swatch is from Innocent + Twisted Alchemy. The sample I have for you today is called Lavish Lollipops. It is described as "Mauve pink that has a lavender undertone with a strong gold duochrome and gold shimmers." (from the website)

Here it is!


Isn't it pretty!

This is a super gorgeous color that might just make it into my work makeup!


I decided to start including the labels...thoughts?



Well I start work tomorrow so their may or may not be a swatch-a-day tomorrow but I will gladly try!!


Love,
Taryn

Swatch-a-Day 7!!

*This product was purchased by me!*

Oh my goodness! It has been a week since I started this! I just wanted to say thanks to everyone that helped me get back on my feet. =]

Today I have Dawn Eyes Cosmetics Matte Lime Green. Now this green isn't the lime color that I am familiar with. When I think of lime I think of bright green. This lime is darker and more like a duller version of a lime's skin.

I actually like this color but I wish it wasn't so hard of a matte.

Like I said, this is a really cute color but just kind of rough. Maybe I will just have to play with it more.

Swatch-a-Day 6

*This product was purchased by me!*

Hello! Today was rather nice day so I went out and ran some errands. Right now I am sipping some coffee and enjoying my day. 

Today's swatch is from The Chequered Lily. Black Valentine can be described by the owner as "Velvety dark black with loads of ruby and scarlet glitter."

This would definitely make an amazing crease shadow. 

Personal fun: I got a job! Huzzah! 

See you tomorrow!

Swatch-a-Day 4+5

*This product was purchased by me*

Happy Mothers Day!!

Technically this was supposed to be done Saturday but it was so rainy I couldn't even get a good light for the picture. So today I bring you two shadows that are super pretty in their own way.

First up I have Detrivore's Exhumation which is from the Graveyard Collection.

According to Detrivore's website, Exhumation is described as "a light taupe brown".

The next shadow I have for you is from Antoinette's Revolution Cosmetics. This shop closed down quite a long time ago but she made some of my favorite colors to date. This one is no exception.

I have been a huge fan of antique golds for quite awhile for winter and fall.

I would describe this shadow as an antique gold with some bronze qualities.

I hope you enjoyed today's swatches! See you tomorrow!

Swatch-A-Day 3

*this product was purchased by me!*

Hi! Today is finally a sunny and pretty day, yet I am stuck inside working. =/ Not to fear! I still have today's swatch!

When going through my purple eye shadow bin I came across a color I wore multiple times during the fall: Meow Cosmetic's Chupacabra from the X collection.

This color is a dark purple with a more vibrant purple shift with some glitter. It is very satin-y.

Personal fun: Had another job interview yesterday, I hope I got the job! I have another next week that I hope works our as well. I am still fighting with a professor over a grade and am now probably going to contact the dean. I am working hard on my summer courses so I can get the A's for those. I will probably paint my nails a pretty color later, right now they are dark taupe. Finally I am probably going to see Iron Man 3 with the boyfriend tomorrow and go out to dinner and such. 

Ta ta for now!

Swatch-a-Day 2!

*This product was purchased by me*

Hello again! Today is another rainy day but none-the-less, I have a swatch for you!

Today's swatch is from Aromaleigh V1 (before the closed and reopened) called Brazen & Bitten from her Victoria's Revenge.

While I cannot find the company's description, this shadow is a fiery orange with orange glitter.

Now that my dad decided to storm into my room saying I am being a lazy person for taking a 10 minute break, here are the pictures.

Right shows it under LA Cosmetics Sealer/Base in all it's glory.

Well it looks like I am being lazy by not working. 

Back to work.

Swatch-a-Day 1

*I was given this for review*

Hello! So to kick off my Swatch-a-Day's I have reached into the depths of my collection (blues specifically) and grabbed one from the bottom of the basket.

Today I have for you Venomous Cosmetics Blue-Ringed Octopus. This shadow was given to me when I first started blogging.

According to Venomous Cosmetics, Blue-Ringed Octopus is described as a Intense blue satin. It definitely is!

My opinion: I rather like this color, it is simple, vibrant, and a fantastic summer color!

Personal fun: I just signed up for summer courses, had a phone interview with Nordstrom today that I think went pretty well. Now I just wait until an hour or so then I get to go get ice cream with the boyfriend.

Hope you enjoyed today's swatch! See you tomorrow!


Love,
Taryn
