More Dawn Eyes Cosmetics sample swatches. :) I had trouble with these being patchy and sheer over primer again. d= They did much better over Glitter Glue though, than the previous swatches.I emailed the owner to let her know that I was having trouble and to see if her shadows are supposed to be sheer.

I have Dew Drops, Sparkling Purple Grey, Blurple and King’s Robe.

I have some Dawn Eyes Cosmetics for you. I have Amazing Base, How Sweet the Sound, Take Me With You and Sugarplum Dreams. I found all of these with the exception of Sugarplum Dreams to be pretty sheer or patchy over primer but they a little better with Glitter Glue. :) These are glitter bombs so watch out.

These were swatched over Too Faced Shadow Insurance and Darling Girl Cosmetics Glitter Glue. Photos taken indoors under a daylight bulb.

MOAR Eccentric Cosmetics! I have Mushroom Cloud, Mirage, Aviation, Fire in the Sky and Wicked Mischief. I’m liking Mirage and Aviation. I keep going for greens now… and blues to go with my purple obsession. I’m impressed with these shadows so far. We’ll see how it goes when I put them on my eyeballs. :) But so far the colors are all lovely and the formulas are silky smooth.

Mushroom Cloud is a burnt orange with gold sheen and gold sparks.
Mirage is a golden halo on top of a light green shifts to teal, filled with blue sparks.
Aviation is a midnight blue with pink shimmer and silver and blue sparks.
Fire in the Sky is a blackened red with gold and pink sparks.
Wicked Mischief is a bronzy gold and rubs down to a pinky base, filled with gold and orange sparks.

Anna the owner of Eccentric Cosmetics asked me if I’d do some swatches for her. How could I say no? I’d been looking at her shop not too long ago and wanted to try her lippies(the colors look amazing. =o Oh Hai Killer Heels, Chilled Liquid and Orange U Glad) and shadows. Her primer also looks interesting. I have Altered Ego, Fatal Mistake, Futile Devices, Vesuvius and Dragon Claw. These came to me in little sample baggies and I switched them to jars.

So these are some lovely shadows. I think Futile Devices and Dragon Claw are my favorites. I love the pop of color in them. Altered Ego is also a very lovely shade. I think it’d pair well with Dragon Claw. All five shades are lovely and sparkly. I have ten more shades to swatch for you. :d

Altered Ego is a pinkish red shifts to seafoam green with purple and red sparks.
Fatal Mistake is a silver tinged dark brown with red undertones and silver and copper sparks.
Futile Devices is a silver/green shift which goes to reddish brown with gold, orange, blue, red and silver sparks.
Vesuvius is a dark taupe with silver sparks.
Dragon Claw is a dark taupe with silver sparks.

I’d ordered some samples from Pumpkin & Poppy towards the end of last year and am just getting to them. d= I’m still getting caught up though! These colors are from P&P’s Into the Labyrinth Collection. I’m not quite sure if they’re still up, but the owner is sweet and easy to speak with.

I have Day Dreamer, Furry Friend, Between the Stars, Falling Down, Goblin King and Out Foxed. I really like Out Foxed and Falling Down and Between the Stars. I know what I’m putting on my eyeballs next. xd Her shadows are a nice formula and I’d suggest trying them out. I failed with the primer photos, TFSI just doesn’t like me. :(

Thursday Guest Post!
Hi amigos! I’m Dimitri from Superdimitri and I’ve been invited to make a Guest post, so here I am.

I was thinking about a topic and since I was out of inspiration for a full makeup look and a product review wasn’t a good idea (since Luna is the best doing that), I decided to show you guys these looks inspired by the ombrè (gradient) trend.

Ombrè is everywhere in the fashion & beauty industry, so you can search for a lot of inspirational images -that’s what I did. I made these lips looks based on this trend, I hope you like it.

 

Although these looks might appear hard to achieve, they’re actually quite easy to do and I enjoyed a lot when working on them: they allow you  to create hundreds of possibilities, sky is the limit.

Actually I made all these in less than an hour!

Ombrè lips are a pain in the arse for a daily look since you have to carry every shade you used with you for re-applying, so keep that in mind whenever you decide to create a gradient  look.

What do you guys think about this trend?

Oh man I’ve had these for awhile, I just couldn’t get them swatched until now. So I have Vampires Kiss and Bewitched in click pens, Poison Apple and Luna Lovegood in doe foot wands, and The Pumpkin King, Wicked Game, Wallflower, Luna Lovegood and Devil’s Dance in Kiss Me Tinted Lip Balms. Favorites? Bewitched, Luna Lovegood, The Pumpkin King and Wallflower. I don’t believe Wicked Game,, Devil’s Dance or Luna Lovegood are available anymore. d= I love, love, love Susan’s balms. They like my mouth much better than her holo-gloss. Luna Lovegood is so pretty I wish Susan would bring it back. &LT;3 Okay swatch time.

More samples from Glamour Doll Eyes. :) Getting caught up, awwww yeah! I have Melancholy*, Premonition, Veteran and Royal Assassin for you. Premonition and Veteran are freaking gorgeous purples/blues. I love them. All four colors are really pretty though. I clearly need more pretties from GDE. ^.~ I’m so glad I tried them. The formula’s are awesome, as are the colors. Just so pretty. &LT;3

I contacted GDE about the shadows with * that are unblended. I wasn’t sure if that meant that they were hand blended mica minus base, or colors straight from the wholesaler. They responded quickly and nicely and explained it for my broken brain. xd The colors with a * are straight from the wholesale, they haven’t been altered at all. I think it’s nice that they offer both hand blended shades and shades straight from say TKB or similar. I’m also happy they mark them.

Photos were taken indoors under a daylight bulb. Swatches are over de Leon Cosmetics Eye Primer and Darling Girl Cosmetics Glitter Glue.

Melancholy* is a true blue color with low sheen.

Premonition is a gorgeous dark greyish lavender.

Veteran is a shimmery dark navy blue with lots of red sparkle.

Royal Assassin is a dark matte purple that also has a gold and green sparkle.

I guess a blog post is due, eh? So yesterday this happened:

Heart holster monitor


I now have a heart holster monitor strapped to me thanks to the Providence heart center. No showers for two days. Ick. I qualified for Project Access so now I can see the specialists. So I’ve been on 4 different antibiotics since Thanksgiving to get rid of whatever mysterious bug that was making me sick and causing a long sinus infection of doom. For the first time since living here my allergies have become so bad my doctor actually prescribed me Claritin and Flonase.

My current list of medicatons?

  1. Gabapentin 1800mg 3 x a day.
  2. Flexeril 10mg 2 x a day
  3. Atenolol 25mg 1 x a day
  4. Drisdol(Vit. D) 50,000iu 1 x weekly
  5. Simvastatin 20mg 1 x daily
  6. Abilify 10mg 1 x daily
  7. Lisinopril 10mg 1 x daily
  8. Loratadine 10mg 1 x daily
  9. Aspirin 81mg 1 x daily
  10. Hydroxyzine 150mg 1 x daily
  11. Metformin HCL 500mg 2 x daily

Much fun. xd I’ve been working on earrings, I have some supplies coming for necklaces. If I can sell a couple more earrings I can get the rest of the supplies I need for necklaces. :d Yesterday Kharizma picked me up and treated us to Black Rock coffee. Oh goddess it’s SO good. I got a white mocha caramel thing, next time I think I’ll try it cold, it was good hot though. Also the girl who gave us the coffees got them backwards. xd Then we went to Providence so I could get the little machine strapped to me. Then we went to Sushi & Maki and Kharizma bought lunch. I had a spicy tuna and crab roll and a fire ball. Mushrooms stuffed with cream cheese and spicy tuna then tempura fried. Mmmm. Then we stopped at Payless shoes and looked around, then Michaels, then home I came.

In car news our Durango yet again, has died. We took it into Dawn’s friend on Monday to check it out because the thing that DEQ uses for a smog check had no power going to it. The electrical went wonky the previous week. The back windshield wiper, inside lights, radio and mirror adjuster things stopped working. *sigh* So we took it in and we apparently missed one fuse. He replaced it and checked it and power was going to the DEQ thinger. So we came home and later on Monday went to go to the store for my mom and the car is dead. Dead, dead. No power at all. Nothing happened when Kai tried to start it.

So Ben tried to jump it. Nope. Didn’t work. It sounded like it wanted to start, but it refused. *sigh* So I have no idea. Kharizma suggested getting a cheap $500 car when we can and just use that until it dies. I agree with this idea. We just don’t have $500. We has nada right now. I have to call Dawn’s friend today to see how much it will cost to look at and fix. Hopefully it’s a really cheap fix. :( No buses run out to where Kai works. Thursday nights are really the only problem picking him up because Ben has a thing that night. Kharizma and Dawn have been helping pick him up. But yeah. Dead car = oh shit.

I have samples from Glamour Doll Eyes that I put in jars. I have Pinky Swear*, Candy Floss, Unicorn and Feline Fatale. Before I get to the colors let me just say I like that GDE lets their customers name their shadows. I’ve not tried GDE before and hadn’t really browsed their site until Mandy from Pretty Making made a swatch post and a fotd. Then I knew I needed to try them. So samples it was, I wish I’d been able to get more, later for sure. I liked all of these shades a lot but especially Candy Floss and Unicorn. Feline Fatale is also a gorgeous purple.

*This means it’s an unblended pigment, though I’m not quite clear on that. :) I’m going to shoot them an email and find out, but had to post some swatches first. Either way their shadows are lovely. :) I will say I’m a little sad to get started on GDE shadows. Now I want more. d= I blame Mandy.

Pinky Swear* is a bright fuchsia color with a fantastic pearl finish.

Candy Floss is a bright pink with purple sparkle and a light purple undertone.

Unicorn is a light pink with silver/white sparkle.

Feline Fatale is a bright purple with subtle black undertones.
