Swatches and Review: Hello Waffle January Visage Box

untitled (1 of 1)

We are well on our way into 2015 now, folks! The train has left the station, full steam ahead! Of course a new year also meant a new month, and a new month meant… a Hello Waffle Visage box! I signed up for the December box first (and will have a review of that coming with some of the prettiest taupes you ever did see), but because Hello Waffle has a sale starting tomorrow that will include some visage extras I wanted to jump on providing some swatches for this box because they are TRULY beautiful colors, especially if you love peaches as much as I do.

Hello Waffle’s Visage box is a monthly subscription box that costs $25 including shipping and contains products for your eyes, lips, and face. This can include anything from lipgloss to eyeshadow to contour powder, blush, lipstick… the whole gamut. Every month Hello Waffle partners with another indie company to add something in to spice up the box, and perhaps my favorite part of the box is that they are still folklore/fairy tale themed! Past themes have included Grimm’s Summer and Winter Garden and A Christmas Carol, and in each box you get a little letter from Christine including the story that inspired the box and a description of each of the products. Let’s get a closer look!

Swatches and Review: Hello Waffle shadows and lip balms (Seedless, Ginger Kitties, Rose)

I LOVE mythology and fairy tales. Always have, always will. Oh the hours I have spent pouring over Pantheon.org and my mother’s old Grimms Fairy Tales and Hans Christian Anderson books… sigh. It was no surprise to me that I fell in love with Hello Waffle’s branding right away, then. I should count myself fortunate that Christine, Hello Waffle’s owner, has an amazing eye for color, because I would have bought her stuff either way! (We can discuss self control later). I bought her Blogger Pack, which is a generous compilation of two full sized shadows, a full sized lip balm, two lip balm samples, and 10 sample shadows (and now includes one full sized blush and one sample blush, all for $30, a generous deal!).

Let’s take a peek!

Look of Today: Fyrinnae, Hello Waffle, Shiro, and Femme Fatale rosy extravaganza!

This week has been a bit of a whirlwind! I just finished an 11-day stretch of working, and have had great opportunities cropping up. It’s kept me from properly swatching my recent orders, but nothing can keep me away from taking a bit to play with some of them. Today I wanted something sweet and romantic, but with a slightly more classic edge to it. Pinks, wings, and red lips it is!

Look of Today: Femme Fatale Candied Apple, Prismo, and Shiro Little Bird, and Hello Waffle Ginger Kitties lip balm

Monday this week my summer season at work kicked into high gear. Serves me right that this also coincides with the mailman (ei. my love-hate relationship) bringing four orders I have been waiting on: Hello Waffle, Darling Clandestine, Femme Fatale, and Notoriously Morbid. Reviews and looks with all of these amazing products will be coming this next week, BUT in the mean time I did have some time to play around with some of the Femme Fatale shadows!

Like a fool, I almost didn’t order their Candied Apple shadow… but I am SO GLAD I DID. Observe:
