Uponaworld Cosmetics Japanese Fashion Palettes Swatches

Okay, this post is a super super SUPER long time coming (we're talking months).  For some reason, I kept putting it off, most likely because of the crazy amount of pictures in it.  I finally get to show you swatches of Uponaworld Cosmetics' pressed Japanese Fashion palettes!  They were released awhile back and I bought three out of four that were available.  The shop also ran a deal where you get a full sized shadow for each palette you purchase, so I got three of the Kenshin ones.  Without further ado, let's get on with it!

Aromaleigh Cosmetics Minotaur Menagerie Swatches

Today I'm showing off swatches of Aromaleigh's most recent Menagerie based off of the Minotaur from Greek mythology.  I absolutely love their Menageries and I think this one might be my favorite yet!  It boasts a few beautiful duochromes, face products, and a gorgeous lip gloss.  I also bought the Goddess highlighter of that month based on Astraea.

1UP Box PIXELS vs Super Geek Box UNITY vs Loot Crate SUMMON September 2015

Woot, I've finally caught up with all my subscription box posts!  I've gotta say, all the boxes I received in September were pretty dang good.  Ever since 1UP Box stepped up their game and everything else has stayed great, it's been like Christmas every month!

Loot Crate PAX Prime 2015 Exclusive Box

Loot Crate did a Fallout inspired box for PAX Prime 2015.  I'm not a fan of Fallout, but I decided to get the box anyway, to see what cool items were in it.  Plus the box was reversible and folded into a could I not get it?

Dragon Age Figure

Halo Badge

Portal 2 Figure

Reversible Gameboy Box Art

There were actually a pair of DOTA2 crew socks that were included that I didn't get a picture of (because I wore them and they're in the laundry...)  Overall, this box was pretty meh.  It costs more than a normal monthly box and I felt like the items weren't so great.  That may be because I'm not familiar with Fallout, but I was mostly excited about the box itself, and that should say a lot about the contents.

1UP Box COMBAT vs Super Geek Box WARRIORS vs Loot Crate VILLAINS 2 August 2015

Almost done with the catch ups!  1UP Box has really been stepping up their game since Super Geek Box's creation.  Since they're in direct competition with each other, it's forced 1UP to become even better.  It's good for consumers like me, who purchase multiple boxes a month.

AFK Cosmetics Round Table Collection Swatches

I'm excited to bring you swatches of AFK Cosmetics' newest collection - Round Table!  It's inspired by the film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail.  I'm a huge Arthurian buff; I had to watch it in high school and really loved it!  My fiance purchased this set for me as an anniversary gift and I had to get the full size for the adorable labels.  The label artwork were all hand drawn by the owner and match the movie references really well.  I recently rewatched the movie just to get caught up with everything.

Awesome snowman drawing; thanks Dena!

Fyrinnae Halloween 2015 Swatches

Welcome back, everyone!  Fyrinnae recently released their permanent Halloween 2015 collection and I picked up a few shadows along with some from past collections.  Spoiler alert - one of them has such an insane duochrome that it's really hard to believe!
