Makeup Geek Vegas Lights Palette Review

I'm so excited to do this review; this has been one of the products on my wishlist for a very long time and I can't believe I finally have it!

Makeup Geek is a brand started and owned by Marlena. From what I understand she started out with a Youtube channel and a website, and then expanded into creating makeup.

I own a few of her products, and I've always been fairly impressed with everything.

The Vegas Lights palette was a supposed to be a limited edition palette, but given that it's still around I'm assuming it was so popular they decided to make it permanent.

This is a good thing, because if you're warm toned and deeper skinned, you're going to want this palette!

In lieu of an actual post, here are a series of cartoons explaining my mentality when it comes to sales.

Because I forgot to write up a review post.

All images belong to Hyperbole and a half, which is a hilarious blog that you need to read if you haven't done so already.

Anyway.

Let's get to it.

OMG THERE'S A SALE. OMG SALE. SALE SALE SALE SALE SALE.

THERE IS A SALE AND MUCH NEED TO BUY THINGS. BECAUSE SALE.

WHY DID I GIVE IN TO THE SALE. OKAY SO I LIKE EVERYTHING BUT STILL. DAMMIT.

OMG THERE'S ANOTHER SALE THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A SALE LIKE THIS AND THERE NEVER AGAIN WILL BE

SUCH SALE. MUCH BUY. MUCH WOW. SALE.
DANGNABIT NOT AGAIN

Rinse and repeat, ad infinitum.

Sephora Chic Week Loot!

Sephora's having their annual Chic Week sale, which of course means a perfect time to haul all the pretties I've been eyeing for a while.

Unlike last year, I was much more prudent and did lots more research before buying anything, and I made sure I tried out everything in-store before making a decision (yes, I know, I should be doing this all the time, but sometimes it doesn't happen okay?)

The main things I was looking at were concealers (thanks, insomnia!) and a foundation, since that's where I'm lacking. You might remember that I purged a lot of my concealer stash and I wanted to keep it to two or three essentials.

Lip Balm Legends

Lip balm is such an essential for me it gets so easily overlooked - until, of course, I have chapped lips that, at best, make my lipstick look bad, at worst, start bleeding.

I've tried a lot - and I don't just say this lightly -a lot of lip balms, and while most were just meh and unworthy of repeat purchase, a few of them are truly standouts.

ColourPop Lippie Stix Review (spring shades)

Continuing with the ColourPop reviews (I talked about the Super Shock shadows here), in addition to the limited edition eyeshadows released for Spring, they've also released some Lippie Stix.

I own several of the Lippie Stix from the original line (and a few that are limited edition from last year's holidays that I unfortunately did not review in time, which makes reviewing them now obsolete). In order to avoid making the same mistake, I decided to make reviewing these a priority, so that you could still get access to them if you wanted to!
