Happy 2017, everyone!  Of course I uploaded this post late, but it's only one day late ;)  I can't really say I enjoyed these boxes too much, but I hope the new year brings better things!

Hello Waffle December 2016 Visage - The Elves and the Shoemaker Swatches


I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas!  I have swatches of Hello Waffle's December Visage!   Hello Waffle is currently closed for the holidays but will reopen in January 2017.  The Visage box continues to ship out regardless of the usual TAT though.  This month's box is themed after The Elves and the Shoemaker, one of my favorite fairy tales because it's so heartwarming.  It includes three mini eyeshadows, one full sized lipstick, and one full sized liquid blush from Squash Beauty.

Hey, everyone!  I have swatches of a little hauling I did during Geek Chic Cosmetics' Black Friday.  They released two new collections and their Overwatch inspired one had such adorable label art that I had to get the entire thing!  My order also came with a Gift with Purchase that I included in this post as well.  Their current TAT is 10 business days.

Corvus Cosmetics Eventyr Collection and Limited Edition Holiday 2016 Highlighter Trio Swatches and Review


Welcome back, everyone!  I'm really excited to share swatches of Corvus Cosmetics' newest eyeshadow collection and limited edition highlighters!  Corvus' current TAT is 5 - 30 business days.  Corvus Cosmetics is one of my favorite indie brands and they've been on hiatus for quite awhile, so I was doubly excited for their reopening and finally getting my hands on some new colors.  The new collection, Eventyr, is inspired by the fairy tales from Hans Christian Andersen and the highlighter trio was holiday themed.

Notoriously Morbid December 2016 Vanishing Cabinet - A Few Rules Swatches


Today, I have swatches of Notoriously Morbid's December Vanishing Cabinet!  NM's current TAT is 14 business days, but the VC operates on a different schedule.  This month's theme was inspired by the movie, Gremlins, and features two mini eyeshadows, one slumber salve lip balm, and a mini perfume!  This seems to be NM's first spray perfume and I'm really excited for them!
