Swatches | Ten Three Labs

Hey guys, I know its been a really long time since I last posted on here. I've just been really lazy and unmotivated to be honest but I'm trying to change that. Last month I was prepping to go on a cruise so I was a little busy. Once the cruise flew by (sad face) I was just really unmotivated and still in that relaxing on a beach mood. Anyways, lets move on to the swatches.

Description: Deep purple.

Description: Antique gold with golden sparkles.

Description: Blackened green with a slight orange shift.

Description: Deep cranberry red.

Description: Murky blue with turquoise and green shimmers.

Description: No description but it looks to be a brownish brick red color.

Overall, I'm really happy with everything I got. I really love The German smudge stick. I got Morgue Water as a sample and even though I haven't tried it on yet, I don't think it will look good on my dark skin but we will see.

Have you tried Ten Three Labs yet? What is your favorite product from them?

The Little LacquerBean: Faded Xmas & Sweet Irish Cream | Swatches & Review

So I was browsing Instagram one day and I came across a picture that The Little LacquerBean had posted about a sale she was having to make room for new stock. The sale was 50% off everything in her store so I obviously had to buy some cute polishes.

Ordered: January 19, 2015
Shipping Label Created: January 20, 2015
Delivered: January 22, 2015

Description: Faded Xmas is a thermal that is a lovely soft mauve pink when warm and a deeper neutral evergreen green when cold. Faded Xmas has a holographic finish.

My Opinion: I love love this polish! Both colors are so pretty and it was really east to apply. 

Description: Sweet Irish Cream is a nude polish with a gold shimmer and holographic finish.

My Opinion: This polish is gorgeous! It's such a pretty nude shade and it compliments my skin tone. The only problem I had with this is that the polish got kind of goopy when I tried putting on a 2nd and 3rd coat. I'm not sure if it's the formula or if it's something I did. Between coats I always close the polish and shake it side to side before I used it again, so I don't know.

Overall I'm really happy with my purchase. I had also purchased straight nail vinyls but I haven't used  it yet. Everything shipped really fast, I was actually surprised. To purchase your own bottle from The Little LacquerBean click here.

What are your favorites from The Little LacquerBean?

IMAM Exchange Swatches | Part 3

Hey everyone! I hope your Christmas was great! That brands I have swatched for you today is Notoriously Morbid and Fyrinnae. I love all these colors and some of them are even becoming part of my daily routine. I have never tried Fyrinnae before this and I have to say I'm in love! Every color I got from Fyrinnae, I love and I can't wait to get more!

Description: A bright yellow befitting the riche with a perfectly lovely pink duochrome. 

Description: A sweet lilac with a sunkissed golden shift.

Description: A deep lush blue with a gorgeous silver sparkle. 

Description:  A gingery, deep maroon. 

Description: Varying hues of gold, blue, and green create a shade that appears dark sage, but light reflects different hues. A versatile shadow, but not boring. Graced with a sprinkle of pale green sparkle.

Description: Vivid, metallic Byzantium purple, unlike any of our existing shades. It's a warm bright purple, but still works on neutral or cool skintones. No sparkle, smooth metallic finish. More striking in person.

Description: Bold rosy and bronze sparkle on a sheer base turns lime green at an angle or closer to light.

Description: Vibrant pinky-peach blush with a hint of shimmer.

Palmistry and Mythical Dalliance are the two products that I use on a daily basis. I mean, how gorgeous is Mythical Dalliance? I'm so excited to pair it with different colors underneath. I will definitely be picking up more shades from the Exquisites Collection.

FOTD | A Neutral Look

Hey guys! So yesterday I had a bit more time before work to get ready so I thought i'd add in a few new products to my routine. It's still a really neutral look but I changed and added a few new things. I hope you guys like it as much as I did. Also, sorry for the lighting of the pictures. It was really ugly out but I wanted to show you guys so I had to take pictures.


  • Crease: MUG Cocoa Bear
  • Lid: A dark golden brown shimmery eyeshadow from CS Revealed Palette. DUPE: Smog from UD Naked Palette
  • Over lid color: Darling Girl Glitter Glue & Fyrinnae Exquisites: Mythical Dalliance 
  • Mascara: Revlon Bold Lacquer and Maybelline Falsies Big Eyes Mascara
  • Brows: NYX Auto Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown
  • Concealer: MAC Pro Longwear in NW40
  • Face Powder: Maybelline Fit Me in shade 360
  • Blush: Notoriously Morbid Blush in Palmistry
I love this look that I did yesterday. I am seriously in love with the NM blush I used. I will definitely buy a full size once I run out of the sample that I have. Also, either tomorrow or Sunday I will have a swatch post of the Fyrinnae and Notoriously Morbid products my gift exchange partner sent me. So tune in tomorrow and/or Sunday to check out that post.

FOTD | Green Halo Eye

So usually for work I wear pretty natural makeup but yesterday I thought i'd go a little bit bolder. I seriously love doing halo eyes. I feel like there's so many different color combinations you could do and you can either go bold, like I did here, or go natural. I wasn't really sure what colors I wanted to do but I decided green to try something new.


  • Crease: MUG Cocoa Bear mixed with a little bit of Bitten
  • Inner and outer corner: Shiro Cosmetics Lingered in Twilight
  • Center Lid: Hello Waffle Archean Earth
  • Mascara: Revlon Bold Lacquer and Maybelline Falsies Big Eyes Mascara
  • Brows: NYX Auto Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown
  • Concealer: MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NW40
  • Face Powder: Maybelline Fit Me Powder in shade 360
  • Blush: Sleek Blush in Flushed
  • Lips: NYX Round Case Lipstick in Cocoa
I was really happy how this turned out. It was a lot bolder than I thought it would be but I still love it. I know I didn't use that many indie products but I was kind of in a rush so I couldn't fiddle with sample baggies and lip brushes. Anyways, I hope you guys like it as much as it did!

IMAM Exchange Swatches | Part 2

Hey guys! I hope y'all had a good Thanksgiving and a fun Black Friday, I know I did! So this is part 2 of my IMAM exchange swatches. This time, the brand I will be swatching is Shiro Cosmetics. I was super excited and happy that my exchange partner included Shiro in my gift because I had never tried them before. 

**All the eyeshadow swatches are done over Darling Girl's Glitter Glue**

Description: Vivid, strangely metallic limey lightsaber green

Description: Warm, lightly shimmery orangey-red

Description: Deep maroon with blue shimmer

Description: Pale shimmery lavender

Description: Muted Tesseract blue with strong golden duochrome

Description: Blackened amethyst with bright purple sparkle

Description: Silvered royal purple over a blood-red base

Description: A twilit forest: blackened blue and green tones with slightly metallic shimmer

Description: Deep teal with very strong green shimmer

Whoo, that was quite a bit of swatches. Overall, I am completely happy with all the shadows I got. I will definitely be getting more products from Shiro. I have to say though, the shadow that surprised me the most was Mother of Dragons. The pigment is red until you swatch it and turns into a silvery purple. It was definitely a good surprise though.
