Clionadh Cosmetics Witchcraft & Alchemy

Clionadh Cosmetics Witchcraft & Alchemy

Clionadh Cosmetics (www.clionadhcosmetics.com) is a homegrown Canadian Indie company based out in Toronto. I discovered Clionadh last year and now cannot get enough! I stalk them on Instagram and make eyes at any swatches I see. Needless to say, I love the versatility of Clionadh’s products – they are seamless from day to night and from the workplace to date night. The shadows are buildable – you can wear them for a muted, dynamic, subtly shifty contrast for work or…

Beauty Bar Baby – Highlighters or Duochrome Eyeshadows? You Decide!

Beauty Bar Baby – Highlighters or Duochrome Eyeshadows? You Decide!

Beauty Bar Baby is another indie brand I stumbled across on Instagram (there’s tons of them now!). I ordered 5 of their highlighters – it was hard to decide which ones to pick because they have so many different colours and swirls. I love a good Indie with a diverse highlighter collection! I decided on the 5 that I thought were the most optimal combination of prettiest and most wearable. I purchased the 37mm pans only for each highlight. From…

Surreal Makeup Eyeshadow Collection: Duochromes to Die For

Surreal Makeup is another Indie company I discovered on Instagram. Established in 2011, the company produces cruelty free mineral pigments in a rainbow of vibrant colors.

The Dragon Scales collection is described on the company’s website as: Intense duo chrome eyeshadow, lip colors and highlighters specially formulated for the most  illustrious metallic color shifting effects imaginable.

TouchofGlam Beauty Duochrome Eyeshadow Palette (Swatches)

TouchofGlam Beauty Duochrome Eyeshadow Palette (Swatches)

I was stalking TouchofGlam Beauty on Etsy (https://www.etsy.com/shop/Touchofglambeauty) for a long time before I finally made a purchase. The company was established on Etsy in 2015 and boasts a gorgeous collection of sparkly, statement-making pigments. I would say that the company’s products definitely live up to its name. I purchased the duochrome palette – you know I am an absolute sucker for duochromes! – which was made to order. This meant that I had to wait a couple of months…

My Latest Nabla Cosmetics Haul: A Duochrome Daydream

My Latest Nabla Cosmetics Haul: A Duochrome Daydream

After cascades of gorgeous Instagram images, I finally decided to pull the trigger on Nabla Cosmetics. Nabla Cosmetics (www.nablacosmetics.com) is a cruelty-free, Italy-based Indie cosmetics company. I most frequently see frenzy around Nabla’s eyeshadow palettes (their Dreamy eyeshadow palette sold out before I could make up my mind on it – too late!) and their single eyeshadow, Alchemy. I decided to order Alchemy and a few other single eyeshadows. My order shipped out via FedEx the next day – it…

Fyrinnae (www.fyrinnae.com) makes some magical pigments – most of my collection consists of pigments from their duochrome and multichrome Arcane…

March Makeup Staples

I am the proud owner of a fairly large makeup collection. I keep track of it all on a Google Docs Worksheet; this allows me to quickly peruse my products in each category to decide which I will go for that day. It is a lot of fun picking out how I will mix and match highlighters and eyeshadows and lipsticks. However, when on the go, I am looking for the easy button –  something I won’t have to think…

March Favorites: A Love Affair with Duochromes

March Favorites: A Love Affair with Duochromes

I am a sucker for all things duochrome. It is easy to create a stunning look with only one dynamic, color-shifting shade. Indies do an incredible job of creating fresh, vivid, and innovative duochromes. I collect both duochrome eyeshadows and duochrome highlighters; however, I find it is more fun to play with duochrome eyeshadows given the innumerable vibrant color combinations you can work with. Below are swatches of some of my favorites this month. I use all of these shades…
