It’s not my birthday yet when you probably read this, but you have to order stuff early in December because there’s no post, after Christmas day.

My Diamond highlight looked questionable when it arrived. It looked like it’s been swatched and returned. But I looked up reviews online and everyone seems to have the same looking highlight. I guess that’s just the aesthetic of it??? Especially the marbled look, it made it look like it was fading away. I mean I love the packaging so I don’t feel like I would be bothered to return it. It doesn’t smell bad so I don’t think it’s expired. It swatched nicely as well. I hope it doesn’t do anything to my skin. Let me know if your Diamond highlight looked like this as well. 

// Edit: I looked at the Charlotte Tilbury highlights that were shaped like gold and they looked crumbly just like mine did. Kinda crumbly looking and not exactly smooth like an eyeshadow. So I’m not worried c: 

The last item I bought is from Make Up Geek. I wanted to try the formula because that’s what I’ve been all about this year. Last year, I was into finding all kinds of shades to complete my collection because most of my palettes lean on the neutral side. I did say I was going to do my last decade Beauty Haul on Sephora in my December Favorites, but I still had a little bit leftover birthday money so I decided to go for Make Up Geek. I heard good things about her. Had to try. Had to. 

This will most likely arrive after my birthday because I ordered it before the Holiday cut off and I didn’t want to pay for express shipping. 

I get so excited looking at my order summary. I can’t stop looking at her. So excited to own something with Art Deco.
This my very first build your own palette. So she’s always gonna be close to my heart, even if new palettes come along. I chose the shades either based on the colors I don’t have or just by their names. I was trying to give it as much of a  1920s vibe as possible, and I ended up loving the result. Not sure if everyone will agree tho c:  I wanted to switch out ‘Fantasy’ with ‘Show Girl’ but I really liked how I don’t have the green that ‘Fantasy’ has. It made me think of absinthe which I guess is very 1920s. Which makes it very tempting to build another palette lol. But I won’t. Immediately anyways. I might get another one next year around December and hopefully, she has another end-of-year sale going on. Ahh, I also wanted to get ‘Voltage’ ; - ; But that’s only two colors, I’m craving and I don’t have a Z palette. Anyway, I’m glad I have this palette now. Because I was thinking of doing a New Year’s Makeup Look or just any Roaring twenties make up tutorial to be dropped any time of the year. I also got this with insurance for 98 cents??? It’s called Route and if it gets lost during the busy holidays, they’ll just send me another palette. 

So have a mix of neutrals, pops of colors, and pastels. I love looking at this palette (I’m looking for my screenshot of the preview for the shades). It reminds me of Bioshock Infinite, Ghibli, Legend of Korra, and The Great Gatsby (2013) film. I already know I’m going to love closing and opening this palette over and over again. 


Shade Names:
x Fantasy - Green (Foiled)
x Nostalgic - Pink (Foiled)

x Ritzy - Antique Gold? (Duochrome)
x Steampunk - Dark Brown/Oxblood (Duochrome)

x Glamorous - Gold  (Shimmer) ♡♡
x Cosmopolitan - Rose Gold (Shimmer)♡♡

x Buffed - White Cream (Matte)
x Surf’s Up - Baby Blue  (Matte)
xCherry Cola - Red cherry  (Matte)


Anyway, that’s the last palette, I’m gonna get my hands. I’m going to wait until December 2020 before I decide to make any new purchases and watch out for products that remained a favorite or the love for it fizzled out. 

I have so many backlogged games that I really shouldn’t buy another one. And I really wish that the fox was the main character for this detective game, but the illustrations are really pretty and detailed. So I’m gonna get it as long as it’s not over fifty bucks. 

The last drugstore purchases I’ve made are also 3 items to match the 3 high ends ones. I had to get the L’Oreal one because I realized I didn’t have a bronzer with an embossed/carve finish. I have one for my Milani where it’s a rose and they’re usual marble finish. But I don’t have one with a pretty pattern in it and I couldn’t stop looking at this one. I’ve been struggling finding stuff at my local target after they remodeled and so I picked this up in Amazon. 

Thank you for reading. Your viewership is much appreciated. I hope your holidays are going well!

Best wishes, 

Mari xx
