Hey, punks! How’s things been going? Been a bit busy, but I’ve got a big one for you today. I’ve actually reviewed Eccentric Cosmetics a good year back (look at wee Bobbie, didn’t even wait for daylight to swatch.) I was alright with their eyeshadows, but wasn’t too thrilled. However, I heard really good things about their eye primer and they had liquid lipstick, so I was all over that noise.
Because of course I got some samples of Fyrinnae’s lipsticks. They have a blue one, guys. Come on.
I am sorry for how absent I’ve been- I haven’t had much of a chance to make many orders at my new place, and I’ve been working a bunch. Still, as my old job winds up and my new one begins, might as well share what I’ve been dabbling with!
Good news- I’m moved into the new apartment. My show opened successfully, and I’m not working 52 hours a week any more. So guess who finally has time to make a blog post?
I decided to pick up some of the Notoriously Morbid Mystic Mattes when I saw they were available in the duo format, plus some Changeling Topcoats, since I’m a sucker for mattes only with sparkle on there.
Alright, friends! For the first time in ages, I’m reviewing something that’s not indie. It’s, like, the opposite of indie. The MeNow liquid lipsticks are mass-produced and sold on eBay for a dollar. I had five bucks in my Paypal when I heard about them, and there’s not much you can get for five dollars when indies cost, like, eight to ship to Canada, so I picked up four of them. And at my new job, I’ve been working pretty much every day, so I’ve had to wear normal lip colours a lot.
If you were following my reddit account closely around a year ago, you would have noticed two things. One, that it’s really weird to follow my reddit account. Two, that, at every given opportunity, whenever someone asked “hey guys what collection would you like to see made?” I would always reply “X-FILESSSSS.” This was a thing I wanted with all my heart. Then Tilt/Shift cosmetics made one and I disappeared off the map, but I waited too long to blog about their lipsticks (which I loved, btw) and I won’t make that mistake twice.
For Shiro’s anniversary sale, I ended up making a little order to to try out the gloss in moderate, among a few other things. I had noticed that swatches of moderate glosses seemed to be pretty opaque, so I figured, might as well give it a go.
