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…

My Looxi Beauty Highlighters

My Looxi Beauty Highlighters

I really enjoy Looxi Beauty as a brand (www.looxibeauty.com). Another Instagram find, I find the company’s eyeshadows and highlighters pigmented, developed in an interesting range of colors, and very reasonably priced (USD 5.00 for a 26mm eyeshadow pan and USD 7.50 for a 35mm highlighter pan). The company also has some great deals on their ‘Steals & Deals’ page where typically discontinued shades are sold at half price. I own a couple of highlighters from Looxi and I would say…

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…

Highlighters of the Moment

Highlighters of the Moment

A great highlight is an absolutely essential step in my makeup routine as it helps me achieve that dewy, ethereal, well-rested glow that I am after – from workplace to date night. I regularly experiment with different highlighters – both mainstream and Indie, although I find that Indie companies do a better job coming out with unique, one-of-a-kind shades and finishes. In today’s post, I will talk about some of my favourite highlighters at the moment – these are the…

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…
