I Touch Roses – Siren Spell & Gudonya Vegan Stuff

So yesterday I received my order of samples from I Touch Roses.
I neglected to mention the cute interior package design.

Today, I tried out some of the colors.



Shade Descriptions:
Take Me – Magenta & Aqua
Alone – Hot magenta pink with magenta sparkle.
Siren Spell – Sea green with magenta shimmer.

Take Me is a lovely color and I don’t think I have a color close to it in my collection. It’s a highlighter shade with magenta and aqua sparkles, and I really like it.
Siren Spell is another color I don’t have a duplicate for in my collection. It’s a really deep teal with magenta sparkle. When I blended my browbone and crease, I made sure to blend the colors together nicely and it had a really cool effect.
Alone is a pretty magenta, though I do have colors similar.

I have to point out here that Urban Decay’s 24/7 liners are simply amazing. Flipside works with all of the teal colors I like to wear. I have no idea how it morphs, but it really does. I love it. I use the 24/7 liners just about every day. They really are a fantastic product.

Eyes:
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
I Touch Roses Alone – lid
I Touch Roses Siren Spell – outer 1/4 of lid, crease, blended upward
I Touch Roses Take Me – on browbone, blended downward, and inner corners of eye.
Gel Eyeliner in Black Out – upper lash line
Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Yeyo – lower water line
Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Flipside – lower lash line
Aromaleigh Lash Primer
Covergirl Lash Blast Luxe in Black Platinum

Cheeks:
Aromaleigh Rocks! blush in Candy-O

Face:
Meow Pampered Puss foundation in Inquisitive Siamese

Lips:
Aromaleigh Minty Cocoa Chip lipbalm
Nyx lipliner in Pinky
Urban Decay lipstick in Trainwreck

I had a hard time smiling this morning as I was very upset over the news with Phaedra. So I kind of look goofy in these pictures.

I had Phaedra at work with me for a while today, because she currently can’t be left alone. Here she is chilling out on her bed in my office after playing with her toy.

I received my order from GudonyaToo – Gudonya Soap & Spa, LLC.

While I use sulfate free shampoo and I love it, I want to move to using more vegan products. I was looking on Etsy to try and find a shampoo to suit my needs and I saw this salt shampoo.

Acai Acai scent has tangy top notes of lemon and citrus fruits, with middle notes of complex and super fruit and a hint  of lily. The base notes are sweet musky and delicious. In the jar it smells good, so I’m looking forward to trying it.

I also picked up two of their small jars of body wash, which are also vegan.

Italian Lemon Cream is a smooth custard cream with teart and sweet lemons and vanilla. This one I’ll have to smell on me to be able to tell if I like it. Normally I love lemon scents.

Chocolate Dream is a blend of chocolate, not too sweet or bitter, just right, think of a tootsie roll floating in a cup of hot chocolate with a shot of dark chocolate. This smells FANTASTIC. Yes, I love chocolate. Yum.

Have you tried I Touch Roses?

      Hi Phyrra….you look beautiful! I love those colors and I totally agree about the Flipside….it has worked with every aqua look I've done too. Phaedra looks so comfy…..is she playing some still then? That's good…

      Hopefully the vet can get Phaedra's condition under control so that she feel better and you can destress a bit.

      I have tried Gudonya. I love their Tahitian Vanilla Salty Dawg Shampoo and matching conditioner. The strawberry is good too. Oh So Delicious scent reminds me of the Charmkins toys/jewelry from the 80s. I recommend their Smoochy bar too. It's very nice.

      You look beautiful as always! Phaedra looks too cute too! Did you get any more colors from this company that you plan to swatch? I looked on their site, but didn't find the pics of colors to be too useful.

      I have tried Gudonya. I really like the shampoos. They smell wonderful. The Tahitian Vanilla Salty Dawg is what I used and loved it. Your color combo looks amazing. Love it as always…

      Hi Ellie,
      Thank you, I just found it hard to do a real smile because I was upset.

      Hi Thia,
      Yeah Flipside and Electric are awesome. Of course, so are Zero and Yeyo. I think I use those the most, along with Ransom.

      Hi Michelle,
      I wondered about the Tahitian Vanilla. Thanks for the rec!

      Hi Leah,
      Yes I did :) If you look in yesterday's Siren post you can see the rest of the colors:

      Hi Krista,
      Wow, everyone loves that Tahitian Vanilla ;)
      Thank you!

      Hi Catherine,
      I hope your look turns out wonderful! And yay for you getting the matte lipstick.

      Oooh the design on the inside of the I Touch Roses package looks like a tattoo stencil :)

      This is a cool look on you! I ordered a sample of the Pixie Epoxy and hopefully I can get something more vibrant like you always do. ;)

      You don't look goofy, you look beautiful. :) I agree, those liners are awesome!

      Phaedra looks great in that blue collar! (with her matching blue toy!)

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

      Full face Picture #2… you look like Zooey Deschanel!

      Feel better Phaedra!

      You look beautiful, you always are so beautifully made up. Sending my love to your beautiful Phaedra. I'm very intrigued by those lovely toilettries, particularly the chocolate body wash, mmm. x

      Sending healing thoughts for Phaedra. Poor pup!

      I've used Gudonya Too – great customer service and everything smells nice, but my hair doesn't seem to like the creme shampoo very much … regular old mainstream Pantene is what my hair likes. But it also works very well as a body wash.

      Hi SilhouetteScreams,
      It reminds me of a henna tattoo ;) Very cute.

      Hi Lillypug,
      Yay! Glad you ordered some Pixie Epoxy. It's awesome.
      Thank you! My friend Noel makes Phaedra's collars and she's made her some beautiful ones.

      Hi Ciao,
      Heh, thanks :)

      Hi Lillian,
      Aww thank you!
      The chocolate is AWESOME, especially if you love chocolate.

      Hi Dio,
      Thank you so much.
      Yeah they seem really nice!
      I've been using sulfate free shampoos for the past several years (Tigi's Superstar) but I wanted to
      move to a more natural shampoo, if my hair likes it. Trying it tomorrow.

      Sweet look! Awesome colours too. Phaedra is a always a cutie even when she's not well.
      I haven't tried any of those brands. But I do have some colours that are similar.
      I use a lot of products that are sulfate free and paraben free. It's better for you, but most people don't seem to care about using healthier products…

    • http://www.blogger.com/profile/06362329068437720496 lillypug

      Hoyden!? She makes the most awesome collars! I think I spotted Phaedra in a pink one too! =D I really should spoil my dogs with some cool collars!

      Hi Blix,
      I am slowly moving over to trying to use stuff that's all sulfate free and paraben free, but it's a hard process to find products. I've been using sulfate free shampoo for years. I just tried this vegan shampoo today and it is AWESOME. OH god do I love it. I've had problems trying to find moisturizers with SPF 30 or higher that are paraben free :/

      Hi Lillypug,
      Yep, she does! She's made a purple one, a pink one and a blue one for Phaedra. Her collars are well made. She makes Phaedra's in the martingale style because she's so narrow through the head that she can slip out of regular collars.
