Review: Concrete Minerals (+ Swatches!)

I have only very recently gotten into makeup, and one of the biggest challenges for me has been finding decent eyeshadows, and applying them without looking like a crazy clown freak.

I can’t think of anything better than something organized in an adorable way. Cute things are the very best and when they please my borderline compulsive need to have things nice and orderly, a Happy Cassie is born!
