I played with mattes today and I went green. I feel very fresh and festive! I really like the way these colors look. I need to wear green more often. I also played with some self-adhesive Revlon Defining lashes and really liked them. They are SUPER lightweight! It felt like I wasn’t wearing lashes at all. I know in the up close pictures you can see how I had trouble getting the inner lash band to adhere properly, but they looked good from a normal distance. So when you see the full face shots, you’ll see that it actually looks pretty good.

So far the mattes are fun to play with. I love that they’re bright.

I received an order in the mail today from Archetype. I’d placed this order on Oct. 12, and didn’t receive it until today, Nov. 24.
I sent several emails to Archetype asking for an email receipt, and never received a response. I finally wrote a letter and mailed it to them. If I don’t get some sort of a response from the letter that I mailed to them, I will not order from them again. I’m actually unhappy enough with Archetype that I didn’t even swatch my order or open up the colors to look at them.

Here’s what I ordered.
Bats! – a soft, slightly translucent deep purple with a weird chartreuse glitter
Black Cat’s Luck – iridescent shadow in a whitish translucent base with purple sparkle, flashes of silvery white with a hint of pink to green
Catacombs of Paris – smoky deep plum purple with pinkish purple iridescence and intense bright turquoise/teal sparkle
Jar of Sorrows – Smokey plum, with strong pinkpurple shimmer. Soft blendable color with an iridescent quality. Matching pinkpurple glitter.
Madame Terpsichore – ultra pale sparkly color somewhere between taupe, grey and purple with lots of silver sparkle
Shackled – velvety black purple shimmer with lots of green sparkle

Datura – poisonous bluish purple, slightly translucent with a hint of purple-blue iridescent sheen, highlighted with a major aqua sparkle
Ghost Dance – a dark iridescent blue that flashes to purple, with a bit of orchid pink
Gloomy Sunday – Greyish-taupe-lavender base with silvery sparkles
Hell’s Kitten – silverized velvety violet with multi-colored sparkle
Kitsune Yokai – greyed out almost violet with a bluish cast with purple iridescence
Night Jaguar – black grey base with a dark plum iridescence
Spook – deep crushed violet with eerie silver and aqua sparkles
Autumn Leaves – yellow/gold base with hints of coral around the edges and green iridescence with silver sparkle
Chubby Skelliton – like the outer skin of blackpurple plums with a blue iridescent haze and a velvety plummy base with pink red flecks of sparkle
Sly – an iridescent deep dark blue with a bare hint of a grape hue to it, packed with coppery sparkle

So what do you think of my new Retri Hi-Fi Mattes green look?
