For today’s Beauty Blog Advent I decided to swatch a bunch of golds. I happen to love golds, and as I mentioned before, I don’t remember when the love happened, but I’m glad it did. I wanted to share some lovely golds with you today. Please note, I accidentally labeled Midnight Cowgirl as Midnight Cowboy. It’s really Midnight Cowgirl. I have just been inundated with always seeing Midnight Cowboy! And uhm, Meow’s color is Santa Honey! *headdesk* I had labeling fail.
