Evil Shade’s Hallow’s Eve Collection!

So some of you may not know but Andrea from Evil Shades Cosmetics released her Hallow’s Eve collection. It’s gorgeous. You’ll find 6 beautiful loose shadows and 2 test tubes of gloss. Seriously they look like test tubes. These are some gorgeous colors and I can’t wait to get my hands on them. :D

I’ve copied the descriptions for the colors for you. You’ll find them below. There is also a screen shot of the collection. You can find the collection page here.

While you’re there you might want to pick up Spectrum Pots in Hfb and Pink Prysm. Also shadows in Toxic Lotus and Danger Sox, and you’ll want to grab some lippies in More Synth, Fearless, Stormy, Deception and Lost Kiss! Ooo also you have to check out her blush! I’m lemming Bronze Skies, Ceylon, Pink Noise, Ravishing, Skon and Twizted. Yes Twizted is a blue blush, bright blue with a pink shift, but omg I want it. I bet it looks amazing. I’ve heard great things about Skon too!

Why yes I am plugging the shit out of Evil Shades. Andrea makes some bad ass makeup and you need to try it. ;) So go on! Look at the gorgeous colors below and go check out the rest of her shop.

Zombie Shadows:
Braaains – Braaains is a rosey metallic pink with green shimmer.
Living Dead Zone – Living Dead Zone is a matte red base with a shimmery orange shift.
Re-Animated – Re-Animated is nearly impossible to describe or truly capture on camera…it is a red/brown base that looks purple in some lighting and black with a hint of red or purple in other light. It has a green shimmer that changes from a grassy green to an aqua depenting on the tone the base color is reflecting. It’s beautiful and complex and very strange at the same time.
Zombie Girl – Zombie Girl is zombie green with a sweet pink shift.
Zombie Moon – Zombie Moon is a shimmering silver with a subtle gold shift and gold and orange sparkle.
Zombiefied – Zombified is a metallic orange with soft pink shimmer that peek out when you least expect.

Zombie Gloss:
Antivirus – Antivirus is a sheer orange tint with blue to gold to green sparkling flecks.
Viral – Viral is a sheer red tint with pink and green shimmering flecks.

I has a laundry happy!

Thanks to @BeccasOnTweeter and @karmicdreaming I learned how to make my own laundry soap and it’s freaking awesome! My clothes have never been so soft. They’re completely unscented, which Kai loves, I however will be ordering some fragrance oils that I can use for my laundry. I’m also going to be picking up about 6-121 wool dryer balls to replace dryer sheets. They cut down on drying time and get rid of static AND you can add a drop or two of fragrance oil or essential oil to them to scent your laundry. You have no idea how happy I am! If my foot weren’t broken I would be jumping up and down giggling like a nut!

Which reminds me. I did indeed break my foot. One of the bones, I can’t remember if she said 2nd or 3rd from the left has a hairline fracture. She did say the x-ray dude said it looked like it was starting to knit/heal up. So yay. It still hurts like a mofo though. I also made a roast and veggies in the crockpot tonight. This week is crockpot meal week! In fact I feel like doing nothing but crockpot meals for all of autumn. Anyone have any yummy recipes? This week I’m doing the roast and veggies, meatloaf and pork chops in the crockpot. I shall also make garlic mashed potatoes to go with the pork chops.

I received my @OHWTO order today and omg the smellies! They are AMAZING. I loves them all. I also got my beautiful amazing magical black magic soap that is glycerin free. I cut that sucker up into 8 small pieces so it would last longer in the shower. I also got the 2oz. liquid version for Kai since he is acne prone, and the Rose Flower Balm that will hopefully help with hive breakouts and my awful rough feets. :( I also got smellies in Passiflora and Raspberry Ginger Ale, and samples in Fresh Snow2, Rose Lemonade3, Honey Blossom, and 3 sooooper seeeekrit smellies that smell divineeeeee. Now I shall leave you to drool over the yummyness above.

Swatches: One Hand Washes the Other

So uh this post is several months overdue, I kept forgetting about the draft. Oops. Anyways. This was my first order from One Hand Washes the Other(OHWTO). I ordered a sample of the Black Magic Soap which everyone has been raving about and three solid scents; Coven, Pink Lady and Frankincense & Mirth. I have to be honest here I ordered the soap knowing damn well it has glycerin in it, but wanted to try anyways. Unfortunately after the third use my face broke out in a rash and horrible hives. Poop stick. Fortunately Becca being the awesomely awesome person that she is made a glycerin free Black Magic Soap which I happened to get in the mail today and will be posting about later!

Onto the scents. I loved Pink Lady, liked Frankincense & Mirth and didn’t really like Coven. Coven smelled too much like sweet baked goods to me, while that’s not a bad scent, it’s not a scent I like all that much. My mom however loved the scent! Becca really goes the extra mile when it comes to packaging. You can tell she really cares about her customers and loves what she is doing. My solid scents came in a nice little organza bag, and the sample soap was wrapped up and inside a plastic baggie. Then there is the awesome little wax sealed envelope. I can’t tell you how much I LOVE that she uses wax seals on them. It makes me smile every time I think about it. On the front of the envelope is a neat little stamp.

I had to open the envelope very carefully because I didn’t want to destroy the awesome was seal(seriously I need some of these I want to send people stuff sealed with a wax stamp!). Inside was a couple of sample pods, a business card and my invoice with a hand written note. See? Freaking awesome! I can say there are a handful of companies who really put effort into their packaging like this, and Becca is one of the best. It’s not required but it’s so refreshing to see and it definitely puts a smile on your face! :D

Anyways onto the pictures! While I am sad the Black Magic Soap didn’t work, I kind of figured it wouldn’t, but am super happy that Becca took the initiative to make a soap formula that I can use! *gives giant squishie hugs to Becca*

Review: wetnwild I Dream of Greenie

Yay review!

Wetnwild sent me some items to review at the end of June including ColorIcon Trio in I Dream of Greenie #331. I’ve been a fan of wetnwild products since I was a little girl and I’m super glad to see that they’ve prospered over the years and still make great makeup, that costs very little. While I’m not a huge fan of green eyeshadow, I’m not really sure why, it’s just not something I go for most of the time when I’m looking for shadow, this trio is great. The colors are beautiful and pigmented and they applied great. I’ve found that once in awhile I’ll find a shade or two in a trio that just doesn’t want to budge, but these were all soft and went on really well.

I really like the browbone shade, it’s a beautiful green that is semi sheer and can be built up if needed, but it looks beautiful on the inner corner of the eye as well as below the brow. Overall all of the colors were soft and applied like a dream and the eyelid/crease shades were well pigmented. My only issue is with the brushes/sponges that they include. The brushes with these are often kind of mangled looking and loose their hairs. There is nothing per-say wrong with the sponges, I just don’t like them. I don’t like the way the shadows apply with them. So that’s my 2 cents on the brushes. Anyways! If you love green this is a great trio for you. These retail for $2.99 so you can’t beat the price!

  • »»Product: 5/5 Applies well, great formula, well pigmented.
  • »» Value: 5/5 Well worth the price.
  • »» Ease of Use: 5/5 Extremely easy to apply.
  • »» Packaging: 4/5 Packaging is great, included brushes are lacking..
  • Explanation of rating system.

Voting and Broken Things!

First of all Geek Chic Cosmetics has a new amazingly gorgeous pink lippie that they need named! See below! Isn’t it PRETTY! My name suggestion was Kiss My Kitty, so uh feel free to go you know, vote for Kiss My Kitty! XD Come on isn’t it a perfect name for it?!

Also funny but tragic story time! On… Tuesday night I went to get a top sheet out of our linen closet because I’d been using a fuzzy blanket and it was way too hot for that. So I open the closet, and go to pull out a sheet and this giant glass door that goes to some cabinet fell out and directly across my foot just before my toes. It’s all black and blue and gross and swollen and really god damn painful. My doctor gave me a referral for an x-ray because she’s pretty sure it’s borked. There however was an issue with our insurance. Kai called ahead to see what the co-pay would be etc.

So they had to call our insurance and the insurance office was closed so they called Thursday and then called me. But I wasn’t able to drive and neither was my mom so I didn’t get to go, nor Friday. So I planned on going Monday because they’re closed for the weekend then I remembered it was a holiday. Poop. Let me tell you it mother effing hurts. :( It feels like it did when I broke my thumb and leg. My doctor gave me a wrap for it so Kai has been wrapping it for me, but the bruise is getting bigger and grosser, and it’s hurting more and more. It hurts all the way up to my knee now. Keep in mind while at the doctor she gave me flexeril and vicodin on top of the gabapentin I’m on. So I’m pretty pain free…. except in my freaking foot. *sigh* Kai found the entire thing hilarious. Also I know you all love visuals so looky at my bruised foot!

He was laughing while I was crying in the hallway. It’s just one more thing to add to the amazing and strange ways I end up hurting myself. So yeah. I’m pretty positive I have at least a hairline fracture in one of the bones the stupid glass fell across, cause it sure as hell feels like it. Hopefully I shall find out Tuesday, and until then I’ll just stay zombie-like with my meds.
