LOTD/ EOTD- Violette Bruises

Been doing this look a lot lately because it's simple and dramatic.

Fyrinnae Parental Advisory Old VS New

I've been meaning to compare them for ages but I am lazy...

Parental Advisory is one of my favorite Fyrinnae shadows! It's an ultra bright slightly blue based purple with pink sparks, very pretty and lovely. Unfortunately I only had a sample sized one (very small amount) and it was discontinued and gone before I realized it so I hoarded it away like a precious gem. I believe this lovely left our world due to the ingredients being discontinued by the supplier.

Luckily this one has risen from the grave with a new formula. I will now compare the two. They are almost identical and Fyrinnae did a great job recreating it.

Pet Peeves

Some of my beauty related pet peeves are...

  • Eye liner pencils/ markers where the cap doesn't fit on the end! 
  • Tinted moisturizers being called BB creams.
  • Base makeup with a shade range that neglects very pale and dark skin.
  • Eye liner pencils with cheap wood that splinters (this is so unsafe, why is it even allowed?).
  • Cheap packaging that breaks and renders otherwise good product unusable.
  • Nail polish with terrible brushes.
