Today I decided to try out my sample of Fyrinnae's Dressed to Kill.

I LOVE THIS COLOR! its a shimmery olive green with golden and lime-y green sparks.

For today's look, I used:

Fyrinnae Silica Gel face primer for dry skin (It seems like I used so much less foundation using this!)
Aromaleigh Pure Cover Concealer #3 under eyes and over a few pimples
Aromaleigh Glissade foundation in 2N

Aromaleigh Divine Radiance in Cherry Blossom on apples of cheeks
Aromaleigh Pure Rouge in Scarlet in hollows of cheeks and blended with the cherry blossom

Willow on brows

Indelible Creme Shadow in Bare Necessities as base all over eye to browbone
Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy on lid up to crease
Fyrinnae's Dressed to Kill all over lid to crease (PATTED ON!)
EvilShades eyeshadow in Devil's Bonfire in crease and vee
Aromaleigh Rocks! eyeshadow in Estranged above crease for a glowy green (my favorite green/color of ALL TIME)
Aromaleigh limited edition shadow in Butterscotch on browbone and blended into Estranged
Indelible gel liner in Black Out on upper lashline and a little bit on the lower lashline

Avon Astonishing Lengths Mascara in black on upper lashes

Indelible Lip liner in Heather to line lips
Fyrinnae's Lip Lustre in Trickster (I love the mint taste!)

These were taken this morning at about 11AM:

These were taken about 15 minutes ago (8:10-8:15PM):


(these might look like fake pics since I'm wearing the same night dress >.< but you can tell I'm a bit shiny in these pics since I've taken a shower and my foundation and lippie has washed off!)


I know, I know, I haven't been around. I quit my job Saturday, our car is acting up, we're not moving on the first; everything that could go wrong WENT wrong, so I've been busy trying to keep my sanity!!

Yesterday while Andrew and I were watching a movie, one of the kids knocked on our door, and I got my Fyrinnae package!!!

I ordered:

Lip Lustre Mini: Trickster
Lip Lustre Mini: Ghostly Voice
Lip Lustre Mini: Shangri-La
I had seen Candy Decadance Lip Lustre from Phyrra's blog, and sent a message to Fyrinnae after I sent my order if they could seperately charge my paypal for a full size if they were released on the site after my order. When my shipping conformation was sent out they left me an email saying they sent out a mini Candy Decadance with my order! yay!

(1) Velvet Gel Primer sample
(1) Velvet Gel Primer for Dry skin sample

Eyeshadows in:
Dressed to Kill
(Arcane Magic) Glitterboi

and a highlighter called "In the Spotlight".

Pics? OK.

I love that zebra tissue paper!

I WILL have swatches of these colors soon, and they will be added to this post shortly (tomorrow when there's light out!)

My next post will show the awesomeness of my Dressed to Kill FOTD, which I wore/am wearing today!

I've Been M.I.A.... (New Hair, and Fantasy Makeup!)

My mom has been hounding me: Why haven't you posted anything??? (I know you're reading this mom!!)

So anyway, this week hasn't been a good one. It just seems like everything is going downhill and I'm trying to grab on and stay above water. Really depressed lately--lots of drama in Andrew's parents' household (I'll say it like that because we don't "live" here...if we were treated like actual tenants--we DO pay rent here!--the house would be clean(er) and people would show some respect to us.)

Yesterday I got my hair cut by one of my newest friend in Vegas, Cassie! We both kind of went in head first with the haircut. I had pics of my last "actual" haircut from a year ago, but I knew the bangs wouldn't turn out right because mine are still growing out from when I had them trimmed to do pin-up bangs for my ex-band. So we TRIED doing my picture's bangs, but they weren't looking good so we just cut them strait across. She narrowed my bangs down (they were REALLY wide) and made it look like those longer bangs are to frame my face. My longest layer got trimmed by, I don't know, 7-8 inches? The rest of my hair is layered crazily so when I pull it up, it looks like a palm tree.

I actually told her that: I want my hair to look like a palm tree when I tie it up.

I know, I'm weird.

Driving home, I looked in the rear view mirror and wondered if I had subconsciously gave myself a Phyrra cut! (Cleopatra bangs FTW!)

Monday's Look!

I'm kind of late posting this as Andrew was playing Counter-Strike all morning and afternoon (bleh!)

I wasn't planning on wearing anything today because I was lazy and wanted to sleep in before work.

Instead I got off my ass and here's my look:

Sunday's FOTD!

I was actually able to SLEEP last night.

That is, until the 2nd youngest in the house decided to scream at the foot of the stairs (right next to our bedroom) at two in the f*cking morning!


So I woke up around 7 and couldn't fall back asleep. I figured I'd run by the apartment office we're renting from next month and drop off our proof of income to get things rolling a day earlier. So you know what that means....

Morgana Minerals Lipstick Swatches PT. I

I promised I would have the Morgana Minerals vegan lipstick swatches up soon, so here's Part I. These are all of the bright/colored lipstick samples I have. Some of them are a little on the dried-out side since I've had them for a while, so they might not look TOO good in the pictures. But I assure you, when I first got them, they were moist and went on beautifully.

Morgana's vegan lipsticks are long-lasting, some are very opaque, and all are VERY moisturizing--even the black lippies!! They are priced at 50 cents for a sample, and $10.00 for a fullsize, which I thought was overpriced at first, but that's when I didn't know much about "vegan/all natural" products--they're a bit more expensive to produce! You figure MAC crap is over $15 for a lipstick, amirite? And MAC isn't vegan!

Plus you can get unusual colors at anytime of the year at Morgana Minerals that you would normally have to wait 'til Halloween to buy!

Melissa of Morgana Minerals is also working on vegan lipglosses, due to be released sometime this month, in which all of us in the beauty world that know of Morgana Minerals are itching to try!

Onto the swatches!

Morgana Minerals mini-review and eyeshadow swatches

Hello again everyone!

Today I am blogging about Morgana Minerals. Morgana Minerals is a small little company based in Arizona and is run by a woman named Melissa. The company's website is pretty easy to navigate, and you can make a wish list of all the pretty-sparkly-omgiwant stuff. There is also a forum, but it is rarely active :/

I was posting a bunch of reviews one night of the lipsticks on Morgana's website and I got an email the next morning from Melissa thanking me for the good reviews and asked if I wanted to pre-order the Azaela Blue vegan lipstick. Ooohhh I SOO wanted it (and it was very nice of her to have contacted me from my 3498439 reviews on her site!), but didn't have the money, so a lucky person stole/bought my potential lipstick :(

That's as far as I've gotten with customer service. She was really nice when I talked to her for that brief time. I don't think I've seen a bad review of MM yet, so don't be scared to try them! Even if you have all the eyeshadows in the world, at least TRY THE LIPSTICKS! THEY'RE AMAZING!


Today's Look: Au-Naturale

I've basically been up since about 2 this morning. A bunch of drama in Andrew's family's household -.-

I was going to get up at 6:30 and to my makeup, but I wanted to sleep a little longer since I slept in pieces and every little sound woke me up all last night/this morning. So I had my alarm set for 7.

Didn't get out of bed 'til 7:05

Needed to leave by 7:15.

Didn't get into the car until 7:30.

xD bahahaha!

So this is me with practically NO MAKEUP ON!

Fyrinnae: mini-review and swatches

Alright everyone! I ordered my Fyrinnae samples ages ago, but rarely used them. I swatched them, then put them back in my makeup stash and they've been there every since!

I've only ordered once, and the shipping took a couple weeks (they are always backed up by 1-2 weeks anyway), so for the time frame, it's what I expected. There are raves all over blogs about Fyrinnae, and I first heard about them from Phyrra.

Their colors are SO saturated, as you will see in my pictures, that they look DAMN good on bare skin without any sort of primer. Usually most colors are washed out--the 7 I have swatched look pretty nice without even using a shadow base or the pixie epoxy.

You can order samples (which come in jars!), and they cost around 2.00. The samples are pretty generous (1/3 tsp), so they would last a while until you decided if you wanted a full size.

Yesterday I decided to try my sample of their Glow Blush in Enchant, and I was appalled that I had never given it a shot before!! It looks like a bright orange in the jar, but goes on a peachy-pink sheen that looks very sun-kissed! Would look excellent on someone that has paler skin than me!

So tonight I'm breaking out my little stash of Fyrinnae's eyeshadows, the three lip lustres I own, my sample of blush, and will be using their very own Pixie Epoxy for their shadow awesomeness demonstration.

EvilShades Cosmetics mini-review and swatches

Alright, well I placed an order with EvilShades in November of December of last year. I remember it didn't take long to ship to me, and I fell in love with the colors.

But I only wore this brand (don't remember which color!) once.


Because I have an endless stash of Aromaleigh, of course!

A few days ago I decided to break out my sample binder and play with these shadows! The samples are very generous, and do not cost that much. I'd recommend getting the sample set and try all the colors--they are all beautiful. I didn't think I'd wear something like Mysteria of the Illusions shadows, but it would be a very pretty highlight color!

I'm wearing Banshee and Venom today, and so far so good, they haven't creased on me!

Today, I am giving you swatches galore of the shadows I have, as well as the four lipglosses I own. I bought a sample set of shadows back then, and I believe these are her current colors right now. I believe the only ones I don't have is the wonderland eye shadow set.

I'm BLUE a-ba-dee-da-buh-diee

So this morning my boss texts me at 6:30 saying to come in around 9:45 since there was nothing on the books today. I decide to wash my face, throw some clothes on, and see if I could beat everyone in line at the DMV because I still need to get registration on the car we bought last week. I got there at about 7:05 (they open at 8!) and there were about 80 people standing outside.

Screw that! Guess I'll have to go in one morning at about 6AM!

So I went by Sam's Club and got some socks and a book, then headed home.

I texted my boss asking her if things had picked up yet, and she said I could just take the day off. Praise the lord! WOOHOO!!

So in celebration, I put my face on. =]

Excuse the headband and shirt, they don't match anymore now that I went "blue" for the day. xD

Nails of the Night!

I found on Zoffe's Makeup Blog a nail art technique called water marbelling.

I decided to give it a shot. Bear with me, these pics suck, and the nail art sucks even more, but I think I'm doing good for a beginner! The blue-based nails were my first nails since I'm left handed. My left fingers look a little better since I was able to get the swirls right before they started drying out.

A couple of times (read: every time), as you can see, I forgot to tape my nails because I was so excited that the swirls looked pretty so I dunked my finger in. Derr >.<

Neutral Look

This was my FOTD from yesterday. I had to run a couple of errands and wanted at least a little bit of makeup on today.

Those that know me know I'm not too fond of neutrals. I like bright and obnoxious.

Anyway, here ya go!

Rainbow Eyes!

This was a TEN MINUTE LOOK I did two days ago. I woke up with a wild hare up my ass, and decided to do something complicated right before work. I was actually a few mins late to work because of this! xD

So here is a little bit about me....

Alright, so since I'm a new blogger, I wanted to share a little bit of myself with you.

Most of the gals on the Aromaleigh forum know who I am, but those of you that found my blog by chance, here are some tid-bits about me:
