Both polishes applied over Wet N Wild Wild Shine Protective Base Coat and under Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat! I used 5 coats of Spirit of the Sprite and 3 coats of The Dominator. Photos taken indoors under a daylight bulb.

Spirit of the Sprite is a silvery purple jelly with lots of gold and purple holo glitter and a gold shift.
Ingredients: Suspension Base (Butyl Acetate, Ethyl Acetate, Nitrocellulose, Isopropyl Alcohol, Adipic Acid/Neopentyl, Glycol/Trimellitic Anhydride, Acetyl Tributyl Citrate, Silica, N-Butyl Alcohol, Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Benzophenone-1, Violet 2), Glitter and Mica. VEGAN

The Dominator is a shimmery gray base with holographic shimmer and red glitter.

Leesha was looking for people to swatch her new polishes and posted a form to fill out on reddit, I of course filled it out. I don’t get to do much nail-wise on my blog! She sent me little bottles of Spirit of the Sprite and The Dominator. I fell in love with Spirit of the Sprite as soon as I saw it. It’s just gorgeous! The Dominator was pretty, but it wasn’t until I put it on and the holo shimmer went crazy that I was totally wowed! Leesha is coming out with two new collections, the Enchanted collection inspired by mythical and magical creatures of folklore and a collection inspire by the different seasons of American Horror Story! The Dominator is from Season 1 of American Horror Story!

So Spirit of the Sprite is a jelly glitter. The base is sheer and I used 5 coats to get it opaque. It’s a beautiful polish and the gold shift is crazy pretty. I really like it on its own, but I think it would be gorgeous over other polishes. I have a couple in mind I’d like to try it over! The Dominator actually only needed 2 coats to be opaque, but I threw a 3rd one on there because it’s just habit. In the bottle it looks like a shimmery gray polish with red glitter, but once you get it on you can see the gorgeous holo shimmer. It’s so pretty! I really like both formulas and I want to try some of her other polish. :D I can’t wait to see the rest of the colors in the collections. Both collections release on November 25th!

Which color did you like best? Will you pick either up! Have you tried Leesha’s Lacquer before? What did you think?

You can find Leesha’s Lacquer on Etsy. You can contact Leesha through her contact on Etsy. Find her on Facebook and Twitter!

Grisly Grimoires by Notoriously Morbid

Hello Y’all!

Thank you to Luna of Toxid-Lotus for allowing me guest post today! I debated on what I should review and decided on items that I received from my /r/IndieMakeupandMore exchange with /u/Kitty_Party, which by the way was wicked fun and she was amazing in her generosity! Clearly from the title I am reviewing the Grisly Grimoires, 2014 Halloween collection, by Notoriously Morbid which is a company that is near and dear to my heart.

Product CollageNow I need to preface that winter has seriously come to Utah and by time I get home it is dark, so all product swatches are taken under an OtteLite (basically an overpriced daylight lamp). I also did all of these swatches over e.l.f primer.

Just another brief note, I recently received some fabulous advice from /r/photography about ‘freelensing’ and macro filters which I will be doing on all future blog posts so my swatches will be much better! YAY!   Ok enough rambling on to the products!!

This was a limited edition release of 6 full shadows, a mini blush, coffin kisser and a charm. I have to say I am pretty much in love with all of this collection and I opened them in no particular order, or did I?

Kicking off with the Coffin Kisser:

The formula of Notoriously Morbid‘s CK is well known and if you don’t know…you are missing out! This one was colorless lip balm that smells like candy to me and my unsophisticated nose (according to the site it is brandied apricot) and as expected nice and hydrating, perfect for Antarctica winter err I mean Utah winter.

Clavicule of Solomon
Clavicule of Solomon

Surprised I stared with the pink color?? No surprise here, pink colors are my jam and this beautiful pink with a fabulous purple-gold shift.  I am planning to try out a look with this and Teacher in Tweed from their Buffy inspired, Slay Me, collection.

Dragon Rouge
Dragon Rouge

I actually wore this the day after I received my exchange package. I am still in my obsession with coral shadows and this fits the bill! I wish I had snapped a FOTD, I paired this with Femme Fatale Wild Vine and a main stream brown from Tarte Cosmetics on Monday.  There is at least to my eye isn’t a full duo-chrome shift but more a lovely gold shimmer from within. I may horde this for my wedding since we are going to Hawaii and this really says beach to me!

Book of Honorius
Book of Honorius

This color is the exact reason why I need to get a macro lens. There is a great purple shift, IMO. I believe the site mentioned a red shift but it came across more purple to me.

Book of Shadows
Book of Shadows

This color is AMAZEBALLS. I know that I do not own anything like this color in my collection. I really want to just paint it all over my face so everyone can see this amazing dark purple with bright green duo-chrome.

Necronomicon
Necronomicon

This blackened purple is going to be a great lid color and I want to try it as a liner as I am working on improving my liner skills. I thought I had something similar in my collection but so far I have not found an exact dupe which of course is awesome!

Magus
Magus

Such a bright sparkling blue with a pinkish-purple shift. I think this will be so much fun during the holiday season to wear. It really makes me think of Elsa from Frozen, LOL .

And the last piece ….

Grand Oracle Blush
Grand Oracle Blush

It was almost ironic that right before my package arrived I was realizing that I have about three blushes that I wear almost exclusively out of the 5 that I own. The three that I wear really are summer type blushes that worked well in the perpetual summer that is Phoenix. I was debating about adding a few winter colors to my collection and then this beauty arrived. The only down side to this blush, it is not apart of the NM core collection…hint hint Carrie ;) . This matte blush is to die for! I love me a good matte blush and the mauve color is perfect for winter and for sure is a color that I do not have and I am really glad it is now in my life :) .

Sneak Peek:

Included was a Black Friday Sneak Peek in

Nothing Is Trivial
Nothing Is Trivial

This is a shimmery silvery blue that really would make a lovely highlight shade.

DO NOT MISS THE BLACK FRIDAY SALE! Notoriously Morbid does a limited year long coupon among other amazing LE items. Fine them here!

Thank you again Toxid-Lotus allowing me and my humble blog come hang out for the day!

Hugs!

I am hoping to put my spin on it and hopefully impart some good ideas/advice, provide some great reviews and at least pretty pictures to look at. There also will be life posts from time to time.

Femme Fatale Reviews and Swatches

I simply can’t get enough of pretty, shiny, duochrome eyeshadows, and I find the ones made by indie companies to be better than the ones made by “mainstream” brands, and generally cheaper too! The only problem is the cost of international shipping, which can make a beauty bargain become totally unfeasible. Lucky for me (and my tiny wee wallet), I discovered the amazing Femme Fatale Cosmetics, based in Australia. Since I’m just a stones throw away in New Zealand, shipping is much cheaper than products sent from Europe or the States (or anywhere else in the world!) – and they have recently reduced international postage rates.

They also (until very recently) offered very handy sample sizes. I’ve owned mine forever and used them many, many times, and they just won’t end (which is a good thing). However, don’t let the lack of sample baggies put you off – the mini and full sizes are so reasonably priced, they are definitely worth getting! International shipping is also quite inexpensive.

I appreciate how carefully they label each product, making it very clear which are vegan-friendly (many, although not all are vegan. None of their products are tested on animals though!), and which are lip-safe. Their eyeshadows look gorgeous over lipstick, so I find this very helpful to know!

I find my Femme Fatale shadows look best with a coat of black mascara on my top lashes, and black eyeliner underneath.

femfat3

1 – Illuminator – Silver Sage (Vegan and lip-safe)

This is a versatile product which I’ve had lots of use from. You can use it as a highlighter – I like to mix some with my Thin Lizzy Mineral Foundation (Miss Von Dita shade) and brush it over my face. I sometimes use it as a highlight on my lips and eyes too.

2 – Eyeshadow – Flowers From Flames (Non-vegan and lip-safe)

This is my personal favourite, quite a unique colour and I don’t own anything else quite like it. This is a gorgeous orange, with hints of green. Unusual, but absolutely amazing.

3 – Eyeshadow – Deepmoss (Vegan and non-lip-safe)

I’m a huge fan of green (incase you couldn’t tell!), and I really like Deepmoss. It’s a beautiful cross between blue and green (although definitely looks more green on me). Really wish this was a lip-safe colour!

4 – Eyeshadow – Exorcism (Non-vegan and non-lip-safe)

I love purples but this went quite bruise-like on me. I do find it easier to wear with some Silver Sage (or any white, iridescent shadow) on top.

5 – Eyeshadow – Emerald Dream (Vegan and non-lip-safe)

A very pretty, sparkly green – one of those eye-catching colours that people always compliment me on. A good colour for blending with other greens, golds or highlighters.

femfatswatch1

6 – Eyeshadow – Elitist (Vegan and non-lip-safe)

This is probably the one I wear the most, due to being so easy to wear and goes with anything… it’s as close as I’ll get to ‘neutral’! A shiny bronze/brown, with lots of subtle layers of colour involved.

femfat4

7 – Eyeshadow – Haunt (Non-Vegan, for use on eyes only)

Same as with Exorcism this went quite bruise-like on me, so I tend to mix it with other shadows to make it more wearable. Nice colour, just doesn’t work well for me.

8 – Eyeshadow – Dispersion (Non-Vegan and lip-safe)

I love the uniqueness of this shade, I wanted a red eyeshadow for awhile and thought this would fill the void. The only thing about it is it has a tendency to look a bit like a bruise. I do love it but sometimes find it hard to wear. Great colour, but maybe it’s just not right for me. Red with hints of blue.

9 – Eyeshadow – Inner Madness (Non-Vegan and non-lip-safe)

I was looking for a replacement for Sugarpills ‘Hysteria’ and thought this could be a good match. It’s not close enough, but nice anyway.

femfat2

10 – Eyeshadow – Temporal Shift (Vegan and Lip Safe)

I love the look of this colour, but for some reason it looks quite muddy on me. I can’t get away with dark shades like I used to, I think! It looked green online, but comes up more brown on my skin, and tends to stain me a bit. I actually prefer to use it on my lips rather than my eyes, since it is lip-safe.

Please forgive my swatches – this is my first time swatching! Sorry for the goosebumps (I was cold!), but I have a no-touch-up policy I intend to stick to, so I don’t want to edit my skin in these photos. The colours are as accurate as I could get (taken in natural light) but do not do justice to how they really are – please visit Femme Fatale’s website for a closer look at them.

A big thank you to the lovely Luna for letting me guest post on her wonderful blog!
