The Holo Hookup September 2017 Royal Women

Press Sample Another long day of hauling out unwanted things! I found a lot more palettes (did you know I bought the Gwen Stefani Urban Decay palette? Neither did I) and other cosmetics that are still in boxes. I think I have a serious problem. If you think my polish collection is massive… you haven’t seen my cosmetics collection. It’s getting kind of insane. I sat on the floor of the living room sorting through my MAC collection and opened each lipstick and sniffed them all to see if they were still okay or not.

Let’s see what…
