Hello Waffle Cosmetics Visage October 2016 Unboxing & Review


Hello Waffle Visage October 2016

Hello readers,
October has arrived with all its fall colours and halloween spookiness. Hello Waffle's October Visage box just arrived. This month's theme was an homage to all things Tim Burton. The Nightmare Before Christmas anyone?

Hello Waffle Cosmetics How Beautiful The Moonlight Contour

Hello Waffle Contour

How Beautiful The Moonlight is a matte greyed out taupe with a hint of lilac. This is listed as a contour, but I think it could also be used as a blush. This blends out fairly sheer and I think will look great paired with a cool mauve blush.

Hello Waffle Cosmetics Simply Meant To Be Eyeshadow

Simply Meant To Be has a blue leaning grey base with a super strong turquoise shimmer and gold flecks. This shade absolutely wowed me when I put it on. I was not expecting that turquoise that jumped out at me based on what the shadow looked like in the jar. I recommend using this with primer to really bring out the shimmer and keep those flecks in place.

Hello Waffle Cosmetics Because I Am Different Eyeshadow

Because I Am Different is a deep shimmery burgundy with red flecks. This one definitely benefits from primer to make the shimmer stand out. Without, it ends up looking more smokey. This shade definitely screams fall to me.

AFK Cosmetics Who's Got A Kiss For The Pickety Witch Lip Colour

AFK Cosmetics lip colour

This month's first guest indie is AFK Cosmetics. Who's Got A Kiss For The Pickety Witch is a sheer wine lip colour. The formula is very creamy and I would classify this as a tinted lip balm. Unfortunately, I just read that AFK is closing up shop so this lip balm will remain a loner in my collection.

Sixteen92 My Whole Life Is A Dark Room Perfume

Sixteen92

This month's second guest indie is Sixteen92. They contributed My Whole Life Is A Dark Room, a perfum with notes of datura, opium poppy, funeral flowers, black clove, caramel, pale must and attic wood. Perfume just isn't my thing so this wasn't a good fit for me. However, there are definitely others who were looking for this scent, so it's already on its way to a loving home.

Conclusion

Perfume aside, I really liked this month's box. The two shadows are gorgeous, the contour is unique in my collection and the lip colour will make a nice item for days when I want to give my lips a break from more drying lipsticks. My favorite item was definitely the Simply Meant To Be shadow. It is just gorgeous. You can find Hello Waffle Cosmetics on

Happy polishing,
