High Voltage Cosmetics Eyeshadow Review & Swatches – Fiesta Shades

High Voltage Shimmery Eyeshadow look

I have purchased a few High Voltage Mineral Eyeshadow samples and I’ve been swatching and playing with them. The 4 shades that I’m talking about today remind me of guacamole, so I’m going to be a dorkus and call these”fiesta” shades.

More 1980’s Fashion: Get the Makeup Look of Joan Jett

Does anything make you cringe more than the thought of 80’s makeup? Yes, and that’s most likely big 80’s hair! So, I’ve tried to copy this Joan Jett makeup look. I’m not “going there” with the hair! (I’m already embarrassed as is!) I’m going to see if one can rock an 80’s rock’n look that Joan is sporting here.

Limited Edition Bobbi Brown Brights Eye Palette Review

I am so happy that I saw this before I bought it. It is such a rip! It retails for $70 which isn’t bad for 35 bright matte eyeshadows by Bobbi Brown. Bobbi Brown eyeshadows come in a great formula, pack pigment, and blend easily. I love them. When I saw this I was shocked!
