Viseart Eyeshadow Review: Bridal Satin, Cashmere, Paris Nudes

Review: Viseart Eyeshadow Palettes

[afflink] Well, I wanted to give these a good thorough testing before I reviewed them, and I think it’s safe to say I’ve had plenty of time – after all, I originally posted swatches of the Bridal Satin & Paris Nudes palettes a little over a year ago (yikes!). In the meantime I’ve also picked […]

I know that was official a couple weeks ago, but for me summer doesn’t really start until the humidity starts going nuts, and I have a fool-proof gauge for that – my hair.
