Swatch & Review: Peacock Pie Alan

Hi Girlies!

Today I have another NZ to share with you! Alan by Peacock Pie has a purple base full of dark purple, light purple, pink, red and orange glitters in varying shapes and sizes. The largest are pink stars, none of which I managed to get on my swatching hand... I recommend doing a bit of fishing to get them on your nails.

Lip Swatch: Shiro Cosmetics Why Not Zoidberg?

Hi Girlies!

I have a new (to me) indie makeup brand to share today - Shiro Cosmetics! Shiro is an independent company based in Portland, Oregon that creates gorgeous eyeshadows, lip colours and other fantastic products. Something I love about Shiro Cosmetics is that all of the products have clever names and hilarious descriptions I managed to snag four Intertubes (now discontinued) in a sale - you might have seen my Instagram post about them. I got Smashing, Over 9000, Leeroy Jenkins and Why Not Zoidberg?.

Lipstick Swatch: Impulse Cosmetics Gamble

Hey lovely people!

Today I have a lipstick from Impulse Cosmetics, an independent makeup company. I have a shade called Gamble, which is a true royal purple lipstick.

As with my other Impulse Cosmetics lipstick, the only trouble I had with this was dealing with the flattened tip - it requires a more careful application technique than the traditional lipstick bullet does. I found this formula really similar to Two Timer as well - very pigmented, perhaps slightly stiffer, but I could apply it without any tugging on my lips.
