Sooooooo! Hellbender is officially available from Darling Clandestine‘s etsy shop here if you’d like to buy it. BUT if you’re planning on getting Falter, Wither, Squander and Spurn from the Hallow’s Eve suite, then you might want to wait for tomorrow! Evonne will be offering a special pre-sale listing for one day only, tomorrow, that enables you to receive a free Hellbender oil when you purchase the Hallow’s Eve suite! That means you get Falter, Wither, Squander, Spurn and Hellbender for only $40! So I suggest you keep a peeper on DGC’s etsy shop. ;)


First up is Black Rose Minerals is having a flash sale, which I forgot about until now. >.>

[quote]If you use the coupon code FLASH you will save 45% only 24 hours. Ends Saturday at midnight PST. You have all Saturday to get your shop on. and also good at[/quote]

And second of all Solstice Scents Lace Draped Spectre is now endangered. :( This was one of my favorite scents. It’s a haunting scent to me. Takes me back to a victorian lady, sweaty, hot, exhausted, sitting on a chair by a window, just watching the world go by and feeling content. It’s a beautiful scent. If you like it, pick up a backup or two, if you haven’t tried it, please do. It’s one of those scents that everyone likes. :)


So Mo over at Madd Style Cosmetics is releasing an awesome new grab bag tonight called Twisted Little Mermaid. Sooo I thought I’d share and post the swatches she posted over on the FB page in case you don’t follow MSC.

[quote]Grab bags will launch Fri 6/21 at 10pm us central time @ They will be $20 and will include: 5 new Mermaid inspired colors, 1 deluxe sample of a brand new color, a Coconut Rum lip balm, and each *order* will receive a 20% off coupon for a future order. (note, this coupon is per order, not per grab bag)[/quote]



Since I’m sure most, if not all of you are familiar with Shiro Cosmetics, you may already know about the new and soon to be gone goodies. I really hope I spelled announcement right, it looks funny. Apparently spellcheck says it’s spelled right. Yay!

New CotM: Damnit, Moon Moon!

BUT ALSO: This is the 12th Color of the Month! So here’s one last chance to get alllll the old colors: ALL OF THE COLORS! Dudes, get them before they go away forever. d= Go, Go, Go!


[quote]The custom lipglosses now come in mess-free squeeze tubes! ^.^ If you’ve ordered a custom lipgloss that came in a jar, please email me with an order number and the number of glosses you ordered, and I’ll issue you a partial credit to be used on a future lipgloss order, as a “sorry for the messiness my bad” token. :) [/quote]

OMG, YES, YES, YES! I cannot tell you how amazingly happy I am for squeeze tubes. Seriously, I want Caitlin to have my babies now. :HEART: COME HERE MAMA! Also, you want to get Moon Prism Power as a gloss, no joke, lookit how amazing it is down there! :LOVE: Don’t forget that Moon Prism Power is one of the COTM shades(September), so if you want that baby as a lip gloss you better get your butt in gear and get that bish.

Moon Prism Power!
