• LOTD: Vibrant Pinks (Sigma Crème de Couture #3)

    After doing two looks with the Sigma Crème de Couture Palette, I’d had a thought that even though the shades are well-pigmented and beautifully soft, they seemed to be a bit powdery and just not translate well to the lid, especially when blending. I decided to have a try with a bit of a stickier […]
