FOTD + Review: My Pretty Zombie Dr. Pickles Miraculous Beauty Dust Mint & Violet

||||| Like It 2 Like it! |||||

press sample

So this is kind of a FOTD and swatch/comparison all in one. I have the Dr. Pickles Miraculous Beauty Dusts from My Pretty Zombie for you. I always use the mint shade, mostly because my face likes be red all the time and it helps neutralize the redness a lot. The violet is used for neutralizing yellow in the skin. Anyways, off to the photos.

Official descriptions
Mint if your skin has red undertones.
Violet if your skin has yellow undertones

Ordering options
You will receive loose product in a 30g jar without a sifter, packed 8g by weight for $12.00 per jar.
You will receive loose product in a standard baggie, packed by volume for $1.00 per sample baggie.

Packaging
Both come in a clear 30g square jar with a clear cat label on top and product information label on bottom.

Scent and formula
Neither formula has a scent. Both are silky, fine powders. Mint is a light minty green powder. Violet is a light lavender purple powder.

Ingredients
Mint – Mica, Rice Powder, Silicone Dioxide, Ultramarines, Titanium Dioxide, Chromium Oxide Green, Magnesium Myristrate. VEGAN
Violet – Mica, Rice Powder, Silicone Dioxide, Ultramarines, Magnesium Myristrate. VEGAN

Swatches taken in direct sun and swatched over bare skin.


I don’t know if you can really see much of a difference in the photos. I started a new skin routine using asian skincare products and it’s drastically reduced the redness in my face. But the green powder now totally neutralizes any red in my face, before I started using the asian skin care products it did a pretty god job, but you could still tell I was a little red. I don’t really use the violet because it just sort of enhances the redness a little, which I don’t want. XD I love the green powder though. It leaves no green cast on your face and it helps keep my face from getting oily super fast. The powder itself is very fine and silky. My cheeks tend to always stay dry and this doesn’t enhance that, or make them more dry or flaky. I definitely recommend trying it. At least get a sample to try. I am very happy with it!

Thursday Guest Post

Thursday Guest Post: A little bit of Moon Pride with Dreadfully Divine…

||||| Like It 1 Like it! |||||

Hello Lovelies!

It is Dreadfully Divine ! I am a writer, self taught MUA,  and occasional blogger who still dreams of becoming an evil warlord. You can find my eyeball of doom (and the occasional rare full face of the days) on various social media. And truth be told I totally suck at bios in case you hadn’t noticed, ^_~  I am completely honored to be part of Toxic Lotus’ guest blogger  Thursday feature! When Luna contacted me about being this week’s guest blogger I will freely admit that I squealed like a school girl at the opportunity since I have been a fan of her blog for a long time.

smexcited

However, after being asked and accepting I began to freak out and wonder what in the world was I going to do my entry about.

Usagi_crying.gif

So after pondering what I could possibly do, I turned my attention to Hulu and to my surprise and delight Sailor Moon Crystal had appeared!  Now I have been a Sailor Moon fan since it first came out 22 years ago and I will admit that I was a bit worried with the new reboot and how I would feel about it. But after seeing the first episode I was instantly in love .

in_love_sailor_moon

Cause honestly, look at the AMAZING ART WORK! It is like the manga and the classic anime had a love child and Sailor Moon Crystal was born.Then it hit me that I needed to do a Sailor Moon Crystal inspired look in honor of the new reboot and I hope to add each of the Sailor Scouts as they appear in the series! But enough of my chattering on to the pictures!

Here is the image I used for inspiration. Isn't  it gorgeous?

Behold the Sailor Moon Eye Ball!

I will admit that I was stumped with how to carry off this look but I am pleased with how it turned out.  I used the following products for this look:

Lunatick Cosmetic Labs Primer

Beauty Bar Baby pigments in :  White Chocolate, SnoBall, Blue Hydrangea, Wild Flower, Red Velvet, Black Velvet, Marigold and Miss Daisy

Beauty Bar Baby‘s White and Black Gel Liner

Wolfe FX Essential Palette (for the dots)

Pinky Paradise’s EOS Dolly Blue Lenses

And Moon Princess Lashes D-3 from the Born Pretty Store    Honestly how could I NOT used Moon Princess lashes for this look?

I hope that you enjoyed my guest blogger post and a big THANK YOU to Luna for inviting me join her awesome blog and revel in Toxic Lotus with my Sailor Moon eye.  Be sure to stop by and check out when the next Sailor Scout appears.

(and watch Sailor Moon Crystal! ^_~)
