Blue Bag of Happiness

Here’s my recent mail and purchases.

First off, an order from Fyrinnae arrived. No, I can’t own too many purples :)

Full Sizes:
Shinigami – deep, smoldering royal purple entwined with a scattering of blue and crimson sparkle
Delvian – beautiful purple with pink-purple shimmer
Sleepy Hollow – lush ocean blue with a flash of sage green and gold sparkle
Dressed to Kill – glimmering glowing deceptive gilded green duocolor with flashes of gold and green sparkle
Visual Kei – a bright pink, strawberry cotton candy scent

Free Samples:
Bamboo Revolution – nearly matte vibrant, deep teal green, just a hint of coordinating shimmer
Blackened Plum – deep, darp plum shade with a little white sparkle

Next, my order from mark arrived.

That’s Deep Purifying Gel Cleanser – a super-fresh, soap-free cleanser that thoroughly washes away pore-clogging makeup, dirt and oil without stripping away moisture.
Super ingredients – sugar maple and black willow bark
Sugar Maple extract is a great source of alpha hydroxyl acid to keep skin soft and smooth.

For Goodness Face Antioxidant Skin Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 – a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer that shields skin from UVA/UVB rays and environmental pollutants.
Super ingredients – blueberries and dark chocolate
Dark Chocolate extract has antioxidant properties to protect skin against environmental pollutants.

Angled Contour Face Brush – I’m a little nervous about this because I can’t tell what the bristles are made of.

Next, my Too Faced Fun in the Dark palette arrived. I won this palette in a Twitter contest.

The gloss is slightly cold because it’s been in the 30s here in Florida.

Pin-up – neutral champagne beige with soft white shimmer
Peep Show – Cool-toned medium pink with gold shimmer
Full Frontal – rich chocolate brown with shimmer
Lucky Charms – Mid-tone green with shimmer

Tropical Pink – sheer gloss with sparkle
Free Love Lipstick – Medium-pink with gold sihmmer

Papa Don’t Peach blush – soft peach
Sunbunny bronzer – dark coppery bronze and lighter soft copper bronze

And I picked up some things from Walgreens.

Sally Hansen’s In the Spotlight, which I used as a topcoat.
Sally Hansen’s Opulent Cloud.
Revlon’s Matte in Pink About It.

Pink About It on my lips.

My 3 Revlon Matte shades.

Opulent Cloud has never been at my Walgreens, but they had a display for it recently and only 2 bottles and I snagged one.

What purchases have you made lately? Anything that’s made you smile?

      Holy hell, it's on the actual palette, too. In the top left corner it says "Chroniles" not "Chronicles"

      Poor Ana. lol

      The only recent new things I have are two full sizes from the AL Hot In The City set, and my two shelter kitties. Do they count? They "helped" me with my mu today.

      Yay, Fyrinnae order! I LOVE Shinigami and Sleepy Hollow. In fact the whole Halloween collection was pretty kickass. I'm waiting on an order from them, as well as one from Meow, and one from Morgana (it's my first time trying them, and I'm super excited).

      There is no such thing as too many purples.. or teals.. or blues.. or SPARKLES!

    • http://www.blogger.com/profile/08053165314174396724 Ciao

      AHHH you got pink about it hahah! Sleepy hollow and dressed to kill are two of my fyrinnae favorites! I really need to try shingami and delvian; they are so preettyy.

      Hi Ana,
      Yep, there's a typo. There's also one on the mark site, too.

      Hi Apriltini,
      Awww, I would love to see pix of the kitties.

      Hi Lindsey,
      Yes, they're fabulous :) What did you get from Morgana?

      Hi Michelle,
      Yay!!!!! I totally agree :)

      Hi Ciao,
      Yep, there are still more matte shades I want. I'm totally amused at my addiction to matte lipsticks.

      How do you like Mark stuff? I recently seemed to have signed myself up to sell it, just to get the discount…

    • http://www.blogger.com/profile/09221277198375464536 squidmarket

      I'm convinced Fyrinnae made Shinigami just for me. I love the color, I love the name, all of it.
      Congrats on getting Opulent Cloud!
      And lol at the typo Ana pointed out.

      Hi Grey,
      I have only used it one day, so I'm not really able to give you a good review yet. I can say that my initial impressions are good. I like the container that the moisturizer comes in, because it's fairly unique with its dispersement, and the cleanser is nice with my clarisonic mia so far.

      Hi Squidmarket,
      Lol! I'm convinced about Shinigami and Delvian for the same reasons!

      In all manner of creepy coincidences:

      1. My husband asked me just this afternoon, "Exactly how many purples do you need anyway?" I answered, "I don't know, but when I find out, I'll be sure to let you know."

      2. And I wore Dressed To Kill today in my crease with AL Moth on my lid. I blended DTK so it became this insanely pretty bluish green and then lightly patted more on to get a hint of shimmer. I was going for something more neutral and understated since I was wearing Duwop's Private Red lipstick. I got lots of compliments on the look at work.

      How is the quality of Too Faced makeup?

      Hi Amanda,
      1. Hahhaaha
      2. sounds nice!
      Ok, I love Too Faced Shadow Insurance, I love Too Faced Borderline lipliner in Clear, I love Too Faced Lockdown, I love Too Faced Sparkler Glamour gloss.

      I have some TF shadows but I tried them before I used TFSI, so they came off my oily lids pretty fast. Let me try again and I'll be able to give you a better assessment.

      It's my first time trying both Meow and Morgana, actually is what I meant to say! xD I can't wait for them. <3

      Hi Lindsey,
      Oooh! You nabbed some lovely stuff!

      Midnight Kiss is really pretty.
      I hope you can find your foundation match :)
      If you post on the forums, Jen will be able to help. She helped me find my undertones and my Meow match. I can wear Inquisitive Siamese or Inquisitive Sphynx.

      From Morgana I love Aqua Stars, Bewitches, North Pole, Transylvania Twist, Warped, Grape, Ice Queen, Medusa, Nightshade, Shrieking Violet and Turquoise, at the very least :)

      What a great haul! In the last 2 days I've gotten my orders from Beautiful Girl Minerals, Morgana Minerals, beautyticket, and Cherry Culture. :D

      Nice hauls! I actually just ordered Delvian but it hasn't come yet. The visual kei is calling my name too….

      a memo from the Officaly Purple Police Dept:

      "There is positively, absolutely no such thing as too many purples". LOL

      I should know I own tons. I remember seeing a pic of a purple car on Miss K blog – now I'm not one for cars (all I know is the wheels goes round), but I WANTED to buy that car in a BAD way – teehee

      I've been meaning to try Fyrinnae for months now, so next month I'll be budgeting for a little spree.

      Wow! Dressed to Kill and Sleepy Hollow look amazing! *chants* SWATCH SWATCH SWATCH SWATCH! lol

      Hi Heather,
      What all did you order? Those are great places to order from!

      Hi Thia,
      It's gorgeous!

      Hi Ghost,
      You definitely should budget for Fyrinnae. They are so worth it. Try at least one lip lustre.

      Hi Dominique,
      Check out the video tutorial I did with those colors:

      I'd love to hear how the cleanser turn out.

      Hi Suzieduck,
      So far it's ok, but it's not really wow'ing me yet. I need to try it for longer so I can do a real review on it. I do like the moisturizer a lot though.
