We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Let-lt med, red u/t. Well, I’m home, and some how accidentally ordered bye bye birdie rather than flutter bye… and I love it (!?). So, I did half faces, one with warm side of BBB, CP get paid, and a Peripera brownish mascara. (They/I have a few, but the labels fell off and my Korean is non-existent.) With CP mind trick. Blush, CFX spiced cinnamon. The other side was cooler tones of BBB, joy ride liner, wine o’clock mascara. Blush, CFX sweet mulberry. L/s CP Scorpio moon. Both sides are decent, but I hope I don’t run into people on my dog walk, though no one would say a word, until I’m gone.

After looking at the Spring makeup trends online for 2020 – (which look very French with minimal, monochromatic, neutral shades on eyes & cheeks, a neat little wing ion the eyes, and bold lip color).

Think Angelina Jolie 😉

Please pardon all the typos, I’m useless typing on my phone, this sentence should have been:
