Saturday brought me some fantastic mail and some interesting new things. First up, I received a pair of custom threaders that I’d purchased from WhimsyBeading. The earrings are gorgeous. They’re a purple velvet and have some teal ab reflects. They’re a lovely deep blue-purple. The color is intense and I love it. Kelly from Whimsy has 2 sets of threaders up right now. You should go snatch them up before I do! Seriously, they’re so gorgeous!
Next up, I received a fauxnad bundle from Amazon.com. I ordered this soley because it had a poodle fauxnad.
However, there are 2 other plates that I really like. One is a halloween plate that has bats! I’ve tried to free hand bats! The other has a cute peacock.
Then, I received some products from a PR rep for Cliche Cosmetics.
Cliche’s motto on their website is cute. They state that a cliche is:
1. something popular or familiar
2. something that works
They have a wysiwyg approach to cosmetics. Their pans are magnetized and their palettes as well. It’s nice because nothing slides around. You can choose from eye shadows, brow definer, blush, mineral foundation, lipsticks and balms. They sent me:
Pink – matte bright pink
Rage – midtone light brown with lightly frosted finish
Witchcraft – deep black with light sparkles
Pink Poodle – matte nude pink
These are swatched on the back of my skin with no primer. They’re fairly pigmented.
They state that their products are made in the USA and used by stars and models, specifically the So You Think You Can Dance people, but at reasonable prices.
Prices are as follows:
$6.50 for brow definer
$6.50 eye shadow
$16 mineral foundation
The foundation and lipsticks have a very limited palette, but the blush and eye shadow ranges are nice. You can expect me to do a look with them soon. My initial impression is very positive.
I also ran some errands today. First I took Phaedra to get her DOCP shot and get some medication for her ears, as she has an ear infection. Then we went to Target and Walgreens. I randomly picked up:
Sally Hansen Insta-Dry Nail polish in:
Instant Iris & Grape Going
Neutrogena Oil-free Eye Makeup Remover
Secret sheer solid sheer mineral Green euphoria
Wet n’ Wild Lust Palette
The lovely ladies on the iPhyrra Forums recommended the Neutrogena makeup remover. I think I tried it a long time ago, but can’t remember for sure, so I decided to try it again since my Nyx Eye & Lip makeup remover is almost all gone. I love the Nyx but I hate having to buy it online. The Neutrogena is the same price and doesn’t cost me shipping.
Have you tried Neutrogena’s makeup remover? What did you think of it?
