La Colors smokin' palette - 16 eyeshadow palette

I think this is one of the best $30ttd ($5usd) I've spent recently. 
Pigmentation is absolutely amazing. The shadows feel so luxurious and to some extent they wear as long as foiled pigment or even comparable to Color Pop eyeshadows but with these you can use a brush for application. I'm so impressed that I feel speechless. 

Here comes the swatches without flash 

What do you think????

Caramia Cosmetics Moisturizer spf15 first impression

Bought this at Pennywise for $19.99ttd 
I recently got some other Caramia products and wanted to explore more products in the line. I was tempted to purchase their cream to powder foundation and one of their loose powders but the rep at the Trincity mall branch was not very helpful. I decided to explore their skincare. moisturizer was purchased!!

Packaging nothing too special looking. 
Has a mild scent which I think is pleasant, I really do not mind it. 
Absorbs well into the skin. 
Face feels soft after use and even a while after use (currently it's just 35 mins since I have it on)
Feels mattifying on face (someone from the Facebook group: The Beauty Project did tell me this.. And she's so right) 

A little pea size is all that's required for entire face - a little goes a long way. 

I have a very pleasant first impression and I will definitely be using this tomorrow under my makeup. I will do a comprehensive review in the next few weeks on my YouTube channel: roannavm

Decluttered my lipstick/lipgloss collection

I'm pretty please with this declutter. In total I've taken out 100 lippies. A few I had to throw out. Most I'm putting in bundles to resell in trade groups and what does not sell in the next couple of days I have persons who have asked for them. My collection feels and looks so much better. I need to now either sort them by brand or color not sure which I prefer I think I'm likely to choose brand and that may be the easier option. 
All is a day's work. On to face products. 

Decluttering lippies part 1

I've been on a makeup decluttering streak lately. But I've been just going through at random but this week I've decided to target certain products each day this week. Today is lippies. I've started going through half of my drawer 
35 lippies I pulled out. I threw out about 5 so that's 40 out of my collection and I still have half a drawer to go and another container lol. 
I will update on my progress later tonight.

Wonderful World Haul

This is the makeup damage I made lol well it's not damage just more than what I wanted to spend.  Beauty supply store brands.... L.A. Girl and Kleancolor 

Wonderful world - Grand Bazaar makeup corner

So I had to get out and do some retail therapy. Don't need anymore makeup and I really was not planning to get anything. Nothing was on my wish list. There were stuff I have had my mind on getting but nothing was a need 😊

Will post pics of my haul soon but just thought I'll share some interesting finds and goodies I noticed were in stock. 

I love these I have the nude still. I had the blue. These are definitely worth the price $18ttd each
These were back in stock. The nudes is amazing. I have it in this week's makeup basket.  
$50 a piece is not bad. Have wanted these since I first saw them on Instagram. 
What caught my eye was how pretty this area looked and the lip paints were restocked and also the Kleancolor eggs were in stock. Kinda wanted to get the egg tray but resisted have too many lip balms
Princessa pencils and shadow sticks. Was curiousabout these also 
 This was the first display that caught my eyes. Kleanista from Kleancolor $10 a piece ... Wide color range.

Nars Deep Throat blush swatches

Price $30usd
Review of product on my YouTube channel: Roannavm

With flash

Overall I love this blush. 

Pros: Wear time is amazing. Applies well, very smooth and pigmented. Product finely milled. Even though it's only 4grams little goes a long way, perfect for tan complexion but can work for all skin tones

Cons: pricey for average makeup lover/addict, packaging gets dirty easy
