About

Hey there!  I started this blog as a place to swatch all of my makeup – “project swatch” – but at the moment it’s more of an all purpose beauty blog. I tend to focus on reviews and comparisons, with a focus on drugstore makeup (though I also discuss my mid- and high- end favorites!).

Here are some of my favorite makeup products – all links are to my reviews:

My favorite brands are ever- changing, but right now, I especially love Guerlain, Hourglass, Rouge Bunny Rouge, Wet n Wild, Jordana, and Revlon.

My favorite nail polish finishes are currently scattered holos, jellies, and multichomes. This changes frequently, though!

I have light olive skin – my best match is usually Koh Gen Do Aqua in 213, but it’s a touch dark for me at the moment.  MUFE Y225 (formerly 117) is also a good match, and MAC NC15 is decent. I have normal to dry skin – more normal in the summer, and it can be quite dry in the winter.

Almost all photographs on this blog are taken with a Canon PowerShot SX230HS – a few here and there are taken with my iPhone.
