Follow Me


Hey, all! Destiny from Bellibone Beauty here for Guest Post Thursday! I’m so excited to be posting on Toxid Lotus, and Luna is a doll for having me.

If you know me, I’m fairly obsessed with Once Upon a Time. My tumblr feed consists of swarms of CaptainSwan gifsets and fanfics, and I have no shame. So, naturally, when indie companies release Once Upon a Time inspired products, I vacuum them up unabashedly. I’ve been rewatching the show to fill the sad void between seasons, and today I decided to share my little hoard with you! I’m swatching Darling Girl’s Fairy Tale Romance Collection and the shadows from Notoriously Morbid‘s May Vanishing Cabinet. Darling Girl has released a companion collection to Fairy Tale Romance, named Wicked is Coming, but I haven’t received my order yet. I wait impatiently.. 

Let’s dig in, shall we? All products purchased by me, and all opinions are my own. Swatches are taken over bare skin and Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion on the top row, and Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy on the bottom. Italicized information is taken directly from the corresponding brand website.

02 If I Only Had a Heart


If I Only Had a Heart (Darling Girl): pale cream with gold sheen and gold iridescence

Inspired by the short-lived Sheriff Graham, this is a pale highlighter shade with a subtle golden iridescence. I use this as an inner corner highlight as well as a facial highlight.

03 Dearie

Dearie (Notoriously Morbid): description unavailable

Who hasn’t ever looked at Rumple’s crocodile skin and wanted an eyeshadow with that gorgeous golden glow? This is a muddied olive-brown with an antique gold shine.

04 Misthaven

Misthaven (Notoriously Morbid): description unavailable

Though it’s commonly referred to as the Enchanted Forest, the actual name of the realm is Misthaven. You only hear it called that once or twice, don’t ask me why. This is a muted forest green with a murky cornflower shift to it.

05 Hot as Baelfire

Hot as Baelfire (Darling Girl): mid tone matte plummy brown

While some may have been smitten by Charming or Graham, I was head over heels for Baelfire. Charming and sincere, and oh lordy that smile. This is a matte plummy brown, and I have no idea why I thought it would be a good idea to swatch it over Pixie Epoxy. It was a nightmare. (Mattes and glitter adhesive do not mix for obvious reasons.)

06 Always the Queen

Always the Queen (Notoriously Morbid): description unavailable

Oh, Regina. I am so often conflicted by you. At the very least, I love to hate you, and I might never trust you. This is a cranberry-toned red with a strong metallic copper shift. If you don’t apply this shadow over a glitter adhesive, you’re missing out! (Why my Pixie Epoxy swatch picture turned out so warm is beyond me..)

07 You Want Darkness

You Want Darkness? (Notoriously Morbid): description unavailable

Being so heavily influenced by fairy tales, Once Upon a Time deals with a lot of common themes, including the constant battle between your inner darkness and light. After the Season 4 finale, I am ready to embrace the dark side. This is a smokey purple with silver shimmer, and it reminds me of the purple smoke that is associated with dark magic in the show.

08 Let's Hook Up


Let’s Hook Up (Darling Girl): blackened green base with holographic gold sparkle and green and orange sparkle

Mm mm mm. Once Killian Jones stepped into the ring, I forgot all about Baelfire. Sultry, passionate, and surprisingly classy for a pirate. His eyebrow raises induce embarrassing amounts of squealing. This is such a perfect shadow for Hook! It’s a deep black base with gold and green sparkle. This is a crazy glittery shadow, so anyone without a glitter adhesive has now been forewarned. It gets everywhere.

That wraps up my guest post today! Thank you so much for reading, and thanks again to Luna for having me! 



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. <3 Okay swatch time.

These photos were taken indoors under a daylight bulb and swatched over bare skin.

Mochi is a custom shade that Susan made for me. :d It’s gorgeous as is Sushi Flower. I love Jacks Lantern, it’s a beautiful blackened berry/burgundy shade. It’s gorgeous. Corpse Candle has a subtle purple/pink shift, it’s a gorgeous highlight shade. Ghost Light is a sea foam green with a golden/green shift. It’s really pretty. Pumpkin Eater is a bright gorgeous orange with green sparks. Taupe a la Mode is a grayed taupe glitter explosion. It has tons of blue sparks. <3 It looks gorgeous with Sushi Flower. >.> Just sayin’.

Swatches were done indoors with a daylight bulb. Swatches are done over Concrete Minerals Electric Eye Primer and Darling Girl Cosmetics Glitter Glue. Enjoy!

Soooo. Better late than never, eh? >.> I *think* Susan still has it up for sale. I’ll have to check. So! Darling Girl Cosmetics Darling Ghoul Halloween set! I have Dream Scream, Apparition, Pretty Plasma, Scream Queen, Witch & Famous and a petit of Crypt Keeper to share with you.

I love Pretty Plasma. Oh man it’s so vibrant and pretty. Love. I also really like Witch & Famous, must do a look with it soon. Apparition is a silvery glitter explosion. It’s really shiny, you can tell in the swatch photos. Scream Queen is a cinderella-pumpkin reddish/orange with some pretty glitter. Dream Scream is a lovely frosty white with red(orange?) sparklies. And last but not least is Crypt Keeper which I really like. It’s sort of a blackened mossy green. I seriously picture it on grave stones. >.>

Get ready for lots of photos. Recently I made a little purchase from Darling Girl Cosmetics. I wanted to make a large purchase but we all know how that goes. ;) I purchased several samples from her Hello Kitty collection, a sample of My Little Pony and April Love. I also purchased Bunny Sparkles the Easter 2011 gift set and the Little Twin Stars glitter eyeliner. I also received samples of Texas Tea eyeshadow, Violetta eyeshadow and Wallflower Kiss Me tinted lip balm. Bunny Sparkles contained a mini of Jellybean liquid kiss lippie, and petit’s of Cottontail eyeshadow and Azalea soft focus blush. Little Twin Stars is an awesome multi-glitter eye liner. Love it. I’m super happy with all that I got and I definitely want to make another purchase. Susan, owner of DGC also sent me a second package of goodies as a thank you for making her new logo. I’ll be getting photos and swatches of those up in the next week. I just wanted to say that her lip scrub is awesome, and so is her dry oil spray. :d She also makes eyeliner from any of her shadows which is AWESOME. She sent me liner made from Gelato which I was going to be ordering anyways, but it’s so pretty!

Favorites: Wallflower, Jellybean, Little Twin Stars, My Little Pony, April Love, Sugar Minuet, Balletusa, and Spottie Dottie.
Onto ze photos!
