Sephora Pro Editorial Palette

Sephora Pro Editorial Palette

When the Sephora Pro palettes first came out last year, I was doubtful. I had never been enthralled with the quality of the Sephora brand palettes I had previously tried. I really had no reason to believe these would be better. However, after several longing-filled visits to Sephora, I ended up picking up all three palettes at CAD 85.00 each. I eventually ended up returning the Sephora Pro Cool palette as it performed the weakest out of all three. Also,…

Darling Girl Cosmetics Supernova Chromashift

Darling Girl Cosmetics Supernova Chromashift

I recently picked up a selection of the new Darling Girl Cosmetics (http://shopdarlinggirl.com/) Supernova Chromashift shadows. The duochrome lover in me cannot stop myself from being all over any new duochrome releases – and this one did not disappoint! The Supernova Chromashift pigments are described on Darling Girl’s website as: Ultra shifty metallic pigments that are out of this world! At the moment, all of the pigments are sold out on the company’s website (which doesn’t surprise me). I believe…

Syzygy Cosmetics Comet Crush Palette

Syzygy Cosmetics Comet Crush Palette

Syzygy Cosmetics (http://www.syzygycosmetics.com) is another brand I discovered while browsing the #duochromeeyeshadow hashtag on Instagram. This is my favourite hashtag, by the way. Syzygy is an indie cosmetics company that was established in June 2017.  The brand claims to be the first to offer all duochrome products. They might be right – although I know of dozens of brands producing gorgeous duochrome products, these tend to be the crowning jewels in a collection of other super-performer products. The brand’s centerpiece…

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!

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…

You can imagine…

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…

The below is a small sample of my mini pigments collection from Fyrinnae Cosmetics. Fyrinnae (www.fyrinnae.com) makes some magical pigments – most of my collection consists of pigments from their duochrome and multichrome Arcane…
