Rich On: Bronzer and Highlighters

August 7, 2017

I’m not really sure what the company is that makes these, but I got them from ShopMissA. The compact says “BR” on the lid and the back says “Rich On Cosmetics” so I’m not sure which one is correct. These are face and body bronzers and highlighters. I picked up every shade because they looked so nice and they were cheap. The colors are: #1 Summer Time, #2 Golden Sunshine, and #3 Bronze Radiance. I didn’t think they would all work well for my skin tone, but it was worth a try.

Whish: Revitalizing Cleansing Oil

August 4, 2017

“Whish is dedicated to the discovery of natural ingredients which enable intelligent choices for your skin. Welcome to a gentle new world.” That’s all I really needed to know before I decided I had to try some of Whish’s products! The product I decided to try was the Revitalizing Cleansing Oil, which is odd because I have more oily spots on my face than dry spots. Oh well, it’s worth a shot!

Malibu Glitz: Round Blushers

August 2, 2017

I already reviewed the square versions of these blushers, so I thought I’d also review the round ones. Again, I picked these up from ShopMissA and decided to get all six of the colors: #1 Silky Rose, #2 Orchid, #3 Peach, #4 Mauve, #5 Amber Star, and #6 Coral. Since I swatched and tested these after the square ones, I had little to no hope for them, but I figured I would give them a shot regardless.

An Explanation

July 29, 2017

The last time I posted was 10 days ago and I feel like you all deserve an explanation for my absence. I know we never just chat here, so if you’re not interested in this, go ahead and move on to a different post. The winner of my birthday giveaway will be announced Monday, July 31 on Instagram and then we will resume business as usual. Here’s some pretties to hold you over until then.

Malibu Glitz: Square Blushers

July 19, 2017

I ordered these Malibu Glitz square blushers from ShopMissA with really high hopes of liking them. The swatches look so beautifully pigmented online, but not overbearing, and the rose imprint is absolutely gorgeous. I got all six shades to try out since they were so cheap: #1 Toast, #2 Champagne, #3 Cinnamon, #4 Neutal (no, I’m not incorrectly spelling “Neutral”), #5 Sun Storm, and #6 Rose Wood.

My ShopMissA Experience

July 17, 2017

ShopMissA has blown up over the past few months. Everywhere I look, I see people raving about how great this website is. I will be reviewing individual items later on but I wanted to talk about my experience with ShopMissA first. For those of you who aren’t aware, ShopMissA is basically the online dollar store of cosmetics. They do sell things that are more than $1 and there are things that are less when you buy them in sets—such as 12 sheet masks for $10. I placed my order on June 25, 2017 for 52 items, totaling $50 with free shipping. My order came on July 03, nine days later. Not bad.

Amuse: 9-Color Eyeshadow Kit

July 12, 2017

I ordered one of these (#1) from ShopMissA and was accidentally sent #2 and #3, as well as an extra of #1. The only kit I don’t own is #4 which is a mix of blues. I’d like to preface this review by saying that I am not a fan of purple eyeshadow, even though it is supposed to work well with brown eyes. Each kit has nine coordinating shades, some matte and some shimmer, with most being matte.

Danimer: Liquid Lipsticks

July 10, 2017

I always see these liquid lipsticks on eBay, but pass them up, thinking that I can’t get a good quality lipstick for 99 cents. When I made a little extra money this month, I decided to just go for it and buy the entire set of 38. I paid $35 for the set, receiving a small discount for buying them all at once, with free shipping. It took about two weeks for them to show up in my mail box. Warning, this will be long.
