Hello Waffle February 2017 Visage - She Walks in Beauty Swatches and Review

Happy March, everyone!  I have some belated Valentine's Day posts for you guys as usual ^^;  Today, I have swatches of Hello Waffle's February Visage box.  It's inspired by Lord Byron's poem, She Walks in Beauty.  Hello Waffle's current TAT is 10 - 15 business days and the Visage operates on a different shipping schedule.  February's Visage boasts a huge box value with almost double the products.  The owner, Christine, also gave out replacements of last month's lipstick, The Holy Grail, and I'm really liking the replacement formula.  The guest indie for that month was Brija Cosmetics and they created an exclusive lip gloss for the box.

Pictures taken under LED bulb and swatched over ELF Glitter Primer (top/left half) and ELF Essential Primer (bottom/right half)

Starry Skies
Starry Skies (overshadow):  semi sheer lavender with tons of gold and pink sparkles

Innocent Love
Innocent Love:  champagne with gold sparkles and pink shimmers

How Pure, How Dear
How Pure, How Dear:  matte mauve

Raven Tress
Raven Tress:  matte dark plum taupe.  As you can tell, it was a bit messy upon opening, but cleaned up easily.

Sweet Express
Sweet Express:  peach rose blush with gold sparkles; swatched heavily over bare skin.  This was actually a very pretty color and I was pleasantly surprised.  Usually, Hello Waffle face products tend not to show up on my skin tone (NC30-35) but this one showed up a bit and the color itself is very nice.

So Soft, So Calm
So Soft, So Calm:  rose champagne liquid highlighter; swatched heavily over bare skin.  This was such a standout hit for me and a fantastic product!  It's my second liquid highlighter from Hello Waffle and I like this one ten times more than the other (I believe it was Awoke at Dawn).  This highlighter is very glowy, has a beautiful finish, and is easy to blend.  I absolutely love this product and it makes my whole look effortlessly glowy!

She Walks in Beauty on face
She Walks in Beauty:  magenta lipstick with pink sparkles

Nameless Grace
Nameless Grace on face
Nameless Grace:  sheer milky pink lavender gloss; mint scented.  This was the exclusive lip gloss created by Brija Cosmetics.  I don't like lip glosses and I don't like light lip colors.  I'll be passing this along to my coworker's young daughter.

The Holy Grail
The Holy Grail on face
The Holy Grail:  peachy brown nude lipstick.  This was a replacement for last month's lipstick that was too creamy.  Christine offered refunds and replacements right away and had generally great customer service.  I find this replacement to be great, with a harder texture and more pigment than the last.

Starry Skies, Innocent Love, How Pure How Dear, Raven Tress, Sweet Express, So Soft So Calm, She Walks in Beauty, Nameless Grace, The Holy Grail

Overall, Hello Waffle knocked it out of the park with February's Visage!  Unfortunately, I've canceled my subscription after February.  My collection has grown quite large and it's better for me to buy certain products I like from the Visage overstocks.  If So Soft, So Calm, the liquid highlighter, makes it into the overstocks, I highly, highly recommend picking it up.  You won't regret it!
