Dark Matter

Happy New Year, everyone!!! I hope everyone had a great Christmas, as well. 🙂

I have a few things in store in terms of what posts will be coming up, but for this one I had to get right to it…and it’s regarding Melt Cosmetics’ new eye shadow stacks. You know I had to get my hands on both stacks. Today, I will be talking about “Dark Matter”. This is what I’d consider to be the more “neutral” shades (even though there’s a red-brown and black colors). The shadows are pigmented and it’s such a great size. The closest size that’s comparable is Sugarpill’s pressed eyeshadows.

Take a look:

  1. I am in search of the best foundation ever for oily skin for my NC45 / NC50 skin. I don’t mind paying for high end/luxury as long as it is flawless. What is your all time favorite?

    • Hmmmm…well, I can’t say what is the “best” because it depends on what type of look/coverage/finish you’re going for! Do you want something that has a matte or satin or radiant finish?
