While I have company in town, I took a few days off of work. So this is late in posting tonight after we’ve been busy all day. I had a makeup fail this morning when I tried to put together a coral look. So I ended up putting a blue look together.

Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Hi Fi Celebrated Victim – inner V
MAC Vapour – on browbone
Hi Fi Comeback – lid and crease and middle lower lash line
Hi Fi Queen of Disaster – crease, outer v, and outer lower lash line
MAC Fluidline in Waveline – upper lash line
Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Yeyo – lower water line
L’Oreal Lash Primer
Cover Girl Lash Blast

Cheeks:
Too Faced Creme Brulee – matte side to contour
MAC Full Fuchsia

Face:
Meow Pampered Puss foundation in Inquisitive Siamese

Lips:
MAC Lipliner in Summerfruit
Urban Decay Lipstick in Midnight Cowboy

I also got some mail, of course.


First was my HauteLook order. I’d ordered some of the Vincent Longo stuff. Pictured here (the top row) is what I purchased. The lower eye shadow trio was a gift from a friend, but I included it in the picture since I thought you might be curious.

Vincent Longo Virgin Lux Lip Gloss in Take Off
Vincent Longo Sun Moon Stars Trio in Chariot Wings
Vincent Longo Bi-Brow Powder Pomade in Auburn

With these trios, you apply the Sun Shade from lash line to eyebrows. You define with the Moon Shade from lash line to outer coner of the eyes. You brush Stars into the crease.

Next I received my order from Pinky Paradise

I ordered:
Max Pure Pink Circle Lenses
Geo Nudy Blue Circle Lenses
Geo Tri Color Green Circle Lenses

I’ll have pictures of me wearing the different lenses soon.

Finally, you all know I love to shop on etsy. I wanted to find a nice jewelry holder to organize my earrings and necklaces from WhimsyBeading. I finally decided on this wall mount jewelry display from Langton Studio. I placed the order on June 22. It seemed to take FOREVER for me to finally receive my order. When I contacted the seller on the morning of July 6th for a status update, he responded back on July 8th that he had had a lot of orders to fulfill and that my package would arrive in 3 days. My package arrived on July 14th. Once I opened the package, I was upset.

I had purchased one listed as Black & Pink and I had requested it be in Black & Teal. I received one in Black & Black.

The instructions on the listing said:
I can make these in ANY color. The frame will be BLACK but the earring bars will be in the color of your choice. Just bid on this auction and I’ll make the substitution.
Here’s the color choices:
RED, WHITE, BLACK, GREEN, TEAL BLUE, DARK BLUE, LAVENDER, or PINK

So when I made my purchase, I listed that i wanted Black & Teal Blue on the invoice on etsy. The seller said he wasn’t aware that I wanted the different colors, which didn’t make sense to me. If that was the case, wouldn’t I have just received the Black & Pink that was the original listing?

Anyway, the seller offered to reimburse me to ship the item back and then send out the correct colors. Since by this point it had already taken about 4 weeks, I wasn’t keen on the idea of shipping it off, and waiting for a new one to be shipped back. Black & Black will look fine in my bedroom, even if it’s not what I ordered. However, the whole thing left me disappointed. I didn’t see anywhere in my listing that it would take so long for the item to be made, and it took a lot longer for me to receive it than the seller said it would, and it was not the color I ordered, despite me following the instructions listed by the seller.

How would you feel about the situation?
