lilly in the rose garden

So my favorite eyeshadow OF ALL TIME….had an accident in my bag.


Funny, of all the Covergirl, Ulta, and misc. eyeshadows I’ve ever owned, my favorite has still been this cute compact I bought at Beya (a very cheap and glittery jewelry store) for a buck. Idk the brand but they do bear the name “Starry u.s.a.”  It has nice shades of tan, brown, and a white that is nicely pigmented and longer lasting. Gosh.


(Idk why they are all sideways) I went back to Beya today to see if I could get some more, since I had bought it maybe four years ago?? The two square ones to the right are my original eyeshadows and the two to the left are brand new. All cost one dollar each. The bottom left one is nice because is has a mirror on the back of the package, and that top row of colors is actually raised. (Two tiers haha it looks nice) The one above it has cutesy packaging, but I’m not loving how all four colors touch each other with no separation. I always manage to mix my colors even with plastic dividers….


Above is a comparison between the off-white from a new package and my old, reliable white.

The two-tiered package has camel, two (almost the same) shades of blue, a purply-brown, one veryyy sparkly black, a light chocolate, a burnt sienna, and then a larger section of a creamy yellow. The four-color package has a dusty rose, off-white, deep purple, and black. All are shimmery.

I tried some of the off-white and it seems to have the same pigmente but sheer coverage of the old eyeshadow. I haven’t tried the rest but I have found that this brand does browns very well, but pinks tend to be too sheer. I don’t like their navy, so I doubt I’ll be using the blues or the blacks. All in all, I HIGHLY prefer these to Covergirl brand, which has continually dissapp

Hair growth progress- As of June 2015- I regularly trim my own bangs and they look amazing- choppy and short. The split ends have ruined lives and murdered small children. I haven't had a proper salon cut since July 2013. I might get a trim of 4ish inches by the end of the summer? I'm lazy.
