Indie Subscription: Hello Waffle March 2015 Visage Review

The Hello Waffle Visage spoilers were a little different this month because Christine posted a look tutorial on her YouTube channel before boxes even shipped! I thought it was a great chance to see how the creator of the products used them in a look, and it was completely different from what I would have done!

AboutHello Waffle is an indie cosmetics company specializing in beautiful eyeshadow collections, blushes, made by Christine, the owner. Hello Waffle is based in Canada, and currently has collections inspired by Archer, Fringe, famous musical composers, cats/literature, and a collection celebrating reaching 1000 Facebook likes. She also offers seasonal fairytale inspired collections that can be purchased in the season they are inspired by.

Shipping - The Visage always ships on the 5th of each month, but does not come with tracking to the US on it's own. Unfortunately, I was out of town and do not know exactly when it arrived this month. But it usually arrives in under a week.

Product Size - All of the products this month were full sizes except the Fairy Dust Overshadow, which was a mini.

Free Samples - There were no free samples included this month.

All eyeshadow swatches are done over Too Faced Shadow Insurance primer. The blush swatch is done over bare skin and blended out.

Before I unwrapped the box. It's always a treat to see how it will be packaged each month.

Here's the info card this month.

Rumpelstiltskin - ($6.24) "Dark green with chunky gold sparks."

I really appreciate that this shade is not black, but instead a dark green with tons of gold sparkles. I was having a hard time deciding on how to do my look this month, but I used this in the outer corner, crease, and foiled as an eyeliner.

Spinning Wheel - ($6.24) "Matte orange brown."

As I was swatching this, I thought it looked a little too familiar. So I did a little comparison with this shade and Hello Waffle Num num num num num, and found that they did indeed look really similar. Spinning Wheel is a touch more matte, without the sheen that Num num num num num has, but the shade itself it almost exactly identical. Which is a bummer since I do have Num num num num num. If you don't though, no need to get it now if you have Spinning Wheel. I used it as a transition crease shade.

Comparison between Spinning Wheel and Num num num num num.

What Was Promised - ($3.50) "A sparkly gold in the jar but turns green over skin!"

I really like these Fairy Dust Overshadows, they work well for a variety of placements. I went with this as the brow highlight, and over Straw to Gold in the center of my lid. I love the look it gave over the other shadow.

Miller's Daughter - ($8.66) "An earthy pink with gold shimmer."

I am just so in love with every blush we get in the Visage, and this one is so pretty. I love the slight gold shimmer it has, and it looks great on my skin.

First Born Child - ($6.24) "A rosy brown mlbb. Fades to a brighter pink."

Another lip product I love. These lip products from Hello Waffle are kind of like lipstick balms. They're super pigmented like a lipstick, but also add a little moisture. This shade kind of reminds me of Life's Entropy's Supernova, but I would say a touch pinker.

Femme Fatale Straw to Gold - ($5.15) "Warm grey-ish mauve brown with copper sheen and green sparkles."

This was my favorite shadow this month, it is so sparkly! It looks great over primer, over Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy, or topped with the What Was Promised overshadow. I used it as the main lid color in my look.

With my eyes open, this look doesn't look as dramatic as it really is. But since Christine did a pretty dramatic look in her tutorial, I figured I should also do something fairly dramatic! And it works well with the fairly neutral lip and cheek.

I love the look of the liner. I just mixed Rumpelstiltskin with a bit of Glamour Doll Eyes Foil Me and used an angled brush to achieve the eyeliner.

This photo is great because you can see each portion of the look. Spinning Wheel as the transition shade, Rumpelstiltskin as the crease and outer corner shade, along with it foiled as the liner, Straw to Gold all over the lid over Pixie Epoxy, and a bit of What Was Promised over the center of the lid. It really adds a nice pop to the look.

I just love how shimmery and metallic this look ended up like. And Rumpelstiltskin as a liner matched everything perfectly!

For the look I used:
  • Face -
    • Miguhara BP Cream
    • Clinique Superbalanced Foundation in shade Breeze
  • Lips -
    • Hello Waffle First Born Child
  • Cheeks -
    • Hello Waffle Miller's Daughter
  • Eyes -
    • theBalm Put A Lid On It primer
    • Hello Waffle Rumpelstiltskin
    • Hello Waffle Spinning Wheel
    • Hello Waffle What Was Promised
    • Femme Fatale Straw to Gold
    • Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
    • Glamour Doll Eyes Foil Me
    • Urban Decay Perversion Mascara

Overall, this month's box had a total value of $36.03 and because all of the values this month were converted from another currency, the value has actually gone down a little compared to what's on the info card. But I really love the golden green look that I came up with for all of the products, plus the blush and the lip product will definitely become staples in my collection. I had a lot of favorites from this month's box, What Was Promised, Miller's Daughter, First Born Child, and Straw to Gold will all probably be used a lot. I don't really approve of Spinning Wheel looking exactly like Num num num num num, but hopefully such a close dupe won't happen again.

Customer Service - I did not have to contact customer service regarding any problems with my box this month.

AvailabilityThe Hello Waffle products will be available for a separate purchase on the 15th of this month through the end of the month. After that they will be gone forever.

Overall Satisfaction - My favorites were What Was Promised, Miller's Daughter, First Born Child, and Straw to Gold. The Visage is by far my current favorite indie subscription, so I can't wait for next month's box!
