Wednesday’s Mail

I received 3 things in the mail today. First was the lovely set of collars from Lindsey.

Second, my order from Hi-Fi Cosmetics. I placed this order before I knew that Veronica had sent me some samples of her eye shadows.

*denotes free samples. Everything else I purchased.

I will try and get these swatched soon. I’ve had no real sunlight for days. It’s been pouring here, so that means my swatches can only be done inside with a flash. While I like that, I still like to show swatches from multiple types of light.

Have you had a chance to try Hi-Fi Cosmetics? What do you think about them?
How about Glitter Sniffer? Do you like them?

I can’t wait to try them both :)

      I've heard of glitter sniffer, but haven't tried them because they're relatively new and I'd like to hear from some reviewers [such as yourself! ;)] to verify that they're authentic and not just repackaged.

      I'm VERY interested in Radiation and Flight Club… gorgeous!

      Hi JessikaLovecraft ;)
      I have some TKB samples so I can always swatch them next to the Glitter Sniffer and other colors and see how they end up looking. I can at least then tell you what I feel like I'm looking at. I'm not too crazy about the containers that Glitter Sniffer's eye shadows come in. A lot of companies use those for samples, but we'll see.

      I have tried glitter sniffer. I have only bought two shadows. I think they are pretty good. I just always forget to pull them out…

      Lindsey made me gloves :)

      Also, Glittersniffer is awesome. She lives down the street from my Mom and I literally walked past her house for 13 years walking to school. I have an order from her on the way, too!!

      Oh, and also also, I love Veronica's stuff. I've got a review brewing for Hi Fi coming soon.

      Hi Krista,
      What colors did you try?

      Hi Grey,
      Cool :)
      I'm looking forward to reviewing both Hi-Fi and Glitter Sniffer.
      I just feel like I've got lots of reviews on my plate, plus I'm working through the new Aromaleigh Retro Hi-Fi Mattes :)
      Not enough hours in the day! Have so much more to do!

      I'm really looking forward to the review of Glitter Sniffer. I've had a browser tab for the Spectrum Smears open for about a month!

      Yay I can't wait for your reviews!

      Hi Amanda,
      Yay! I'll try to get swatching done soon rather than later.

      Hi Pixie!
      Yay, good to know :)
