So, on the very day I got my last Notoriously Morbid order, they released not one, but two new collections. Notoriously Morbid kind of gets me. Also, on the day I got these, they put out a new preorderable collection that comes with a coupon code for up to 40% off any order you make for an entire year. Needless to say, I placed an order immediately. Now, knowing my luck, I’ll get the 10% one, which would be sort of a bummer since every order I’ve made so far has come with a 20% off coupon anyhow. Still, the colours look neat, and I ordered it on freebie friday, which means I’ll be getting another Coffin Kisser too. This is good because I can’t get over how much I love the Bitten Beauty one. While the formula is a bit softer than other lip balms I own, I put it on about an hour before my lipstick and I feel great.
Eccentric Cosmetics is an Etsy shop with ‘eccentric’ in the name, so I pretty much had to make an order. They’re based in Australia, which is important news if you live in Australia and find makeup shipping costs to be prohibitively high. I ordered a sample pack, since not only can I never have too many baggies of pretty coloured dust, shipping jars around the world is quite expensive.
This post was requested by a reader, who I assume is mystically aware of my awkward junior high emo phase and thus my natural attraction to black makeup. I do own a decent amount of black eyeshadow, because some days you just have to rock the panda eye. So here it is, swatches of all my blacks.
Fierce Magenta is one of those Etsy shops I kept looking at for a while before finally making an order. They mostly sell lip products, although they do have a small selection of eyeshadow as well.
Look at me, owning makeup that people can buy in person at a store. I’m almost like a real person.
Yesterday was my birthday, and a friend of mine picked this up for me. It was recommended by the lady at the drug store when he told her that I don’t wear blush or bronzer and I really like blue lipstick, which is sort of all you need to know about me in general.
As some of you may have guessed, I like me some bright colours. And if you’re vaguely familiar with the indie cosmetics scene, you probably have heard that Sugarpill is a brand that is very, very good at bright colours. I didn’t make an order immediately upon visiting the site because, unlike most indie companies, there are no samples, and their eyeshadows, at $12.00 apiece, are a tad bit too spendy for me to order without really knowing about the quality beforehand. However, recently, they had a little mini-sale, which was motivation enough for me to get one of their palettes.
