Okay, let's take a moment to ponder why time seems to be moving so quickly all of a sudden... How is Wednesday already and more so, how is it September? I have no clue. I will say though, I am pumped for fall weather, which has already started creeping in. Today was a lovely overcast day with sporadic intervals of rain. Perfection if you was me. September also brings with it the newest Pearlesque Box featuring Dirty Lamb. I was very excited to see Dirty Lamb goodies as I've been wanting to try more of their offerings. Interested too? You know what to do...

Trendy on the Cheap | Wet n Wild Colour Icon Eyeshadow Palettes

wet n wild colour icon eyeshadow palettes: : : self-purchased / / affiliate links : : :

A post from the 'forgotten files' today. Well, kind of. I've had this post half started since last August when I picked up these Wet n Wild palettes on a whim. I was feeling the need for something peachy when I saw the Not a Basic Peach palette and took it as a good enough reason to grab Rosé in the Air (a very decent ABH Modern Renaissance dupe.) Of course, with the semi-recent problems Wet n Wild found themselves in regarding their cruelty-free status (read up here) I decided maybe to hold off posting these for just a while longer. While I don't exclusively use cruelty-free products, the way Wet n Wild handled the issue (and that it was happening in the first place) has certainly made me weary of supporting the brand in the future.
