Hello Waffle Cosmetics Visage April 2016 Swatches & Review



Hello readers,
This month's Hello Waffle Visage box was inspired by the book Le Petit Prince (soon to be a movie too). I also remember reading this in French class back in the day. This month aimed for fresh spring colours, even though Winter is sticking around longer than usual for central Canada this year.


Hello Waffle Cosmetics - Les Baobabs


Les Baobabs is described as a sheer pastel green with copper shimmer. Despite starting out sheer, it can be built up quite easily like in the swatch. The shimmer is quite subtle. I would describe this as a satin finish. It isn't a colour I would normally be drawn to, but now that I have it I'm going to try and incorporate it into some looks.

Hello Waffle Cosmetics - Les Étoiles


Les Étoiles is described as a light lilac purple wth a silver and golden twinkle. What a twinkle it has! I found the gold was more prominent. This one is quite shimmery, almost sparkly.

Hello Waffle Cosmetics - Ta Rose


Ta Rose is described as a strong rosy peach with golden shift. This is a super pretty rose gold with medium shimmer. The gold shift is quite prominent.

Hello Waffle Cosmetics - On Ne Voit Pas Qu'avec le Coeur


On ne Voit Bien Qu'avec le Coeur is described as a bright pink raspberry. It has medium pigmentation - the swatch below took two light swipes. I really love this as a spring colour. FYI it did leave a light natural looking pink stain on my lips.

Mad Lab Cosmetics - Her Fragrance and Radiance


This month's guest indie was Mad Lab Cosmetics. Her Fragrance and Radiance is a matte dusty rose blush. I don't own a ton of loose matte blushes so this one will be fun to play around with. The swatch below is heavy, and the blush can definitely be blended out for a softer look.

Conclusion

My personal favorites from this month's selection are the Ta Rose eyeshadow and On Ne Voit Bien Qu'avec le Coeur lip colour. You can find Hello Waffle Cosmetics on:


Happy polishing,
