Reviewing my DIY Penneys Eyeshadow Palette

Do I Love ‘Love You So Mochi?’

Do I Love ‘Love You So Mochi?’

I am a sucker for weird concepts, even if that concept is mostly impractical. Enter Nyx with their Love You So Mochi eyeshadow palettes, available in 2 colour themes: Sleek and Chic (fairly neutral) and Electric Pastels (brights). I actually bought this in early January from […]
