NYX Cosmic Metals Shadow Pallette: Review + Swatches

Okay, Autumn is here, and I am LIVING for the NYX Comic Metals line. Specifically, their Cosmic Metals Shadow Palette.

Etude House Sunprise Sunscreen SPF 50+ {Review}

I think I was in middle school when they Bioré pore strips first came out? Somewhere around early 2000. All I remember is that were they deemed as revolutionary. Of course, they never worked for me because they hurt so bad when I removing hat I would resort to softening them with water to take…
