Y'all, send me a Twizzlers and I'll be the most excited person that day.

Info card.

Church Kiss (loose blush) is a light pink blush ice blue glitters and gold to red sparkles.
I love this shade of pink but I'm not really one for blushes that have sparkle. I do like this as a lighter wash of pink on my eyes, though!

Whoopity Doo (loose eyeshadow) is an ocean blue with gold glitters, pink shimmers, and a slight gold shift.
This was a little patchy and a little bit harder to work with, so I haven't reached for it very much. It's a beautiful blue and can be wonderful with some setting spray and a flat brush, but I'm not as likely to do that much work for a basic shadow.

Grade-A (loose eyeshadow) is a cool-toned grey with pink, gold, and blue sparkles.
My favorite item from the bag! This is a beautiful grey that looks great on its own or with a complex eye look. 

Pretty Pretty Please (loose eyeshadow) is a hot pink/fuchsia with blue to purple sparkles.
This is a beautiful color and looks really nice as a topper for a bit of sparkle on your lid. It's nice as an all over if you smoke out the edge, as well.


Overall, I liked this bag. I would have preferred a cohesive look or at the very least, less pops of color. These shadows aren't easily combined, at least not in looks I normally wear, and therefore it was harder to find ways to wear these.

As always, let me know what you thought of this bag in the comments!

Jesse's Girl Cosmetics - Forget Me Not | Swatch My Stash

It's Thirsty Thursday today and I'm indulging in some serious sweet tea. We're also warming up in Georgia, so we're slowly getting to the point where I leave to do errands before 8am and want to be home by 11. Today I have a drugstore polish for you guys. They're available online and at least my Rite Aid has a limited Jesse's Girl rack with polish and makeup.

Here's Forget Me Not.

Forget Me Not is a sky blue creme.
