StarShine Company Arrived

I recently ordered samples from the Starshine Company, and they arrived today!

I purchased:

Blood Kissed – reddish pink with purple undertones
Damaged – a shimmery dark purple shade
Fading – a grey shade with blue undertones
Gravestone – medium grey with blue undertones
Nyx – rich pinkish bronze with sheen
Razzleberry – blue-purple color
Sea Foam – bright aqua
Golden Green – bright golden green
Poker Star – deep navy blue with sparkle
Storm – stormy blue

I also received free samples of:
Chartreuse – bright yellow tinged with green
24k – bright gold
Dark Chocolate – dark chocolate

and a scent sample:
Lemon Chiffon – a delicious frangrance just like warm creamy lemon pie.

I LOVE this!
The scent lasted for about 3 hours on me until it faded to a delicate vanilla-lemon scent. It smelled like a lemon pie with vanilla cream, and I really liked it.

I’m looking forward to playing with these colors.

Sorry I don’t have a look for you today. I worked from home and went to see my doctor because my leg (where the spider bite was), was looking awful again. My doctor ran some tests, then had to cut the bite open (which was painful), swab it, and drain it. Let’s just say that having that done with no painkillers wasn’t pleasant. I’m on 10 more days of antibiotics, taking a pill 4 times a day. Hopefully this time it will be cured.

      They did that with no painkillers..? Are they down the road from Sweeny Tood? Yaag…

      Looking forward to swatch-pics!

        Naw, my dr is pretty awesome, and I really REALLY hate needles, so I opted to not have the topical shot, because I would panic more from the needle than from him just cutting it and draining it.

        I got through it. Lots of deep breathing.

      oh my god your poor leg! I would have gotten muy queasy! Heal up lady!!!

      • Phyrra

        I’m getting the results of my culture on Friday, so I’m hoping that if we need to change my medication, we can do it to something targeted at whatever is in my leg. Yuck.

      Awwww….you poor thing! ((hugs & snuggles))

      • Phyrra

        *hug* Thanks! It’s definitely been sucky. This has been an issue since mid-June.

      Lucky! I love having things lanced! (No, that’s not sarcasm. I also like elective oral surgery.)

      • Phyrra

        Eek! I’m not a fan of watching my dr use a scalpal on me while I’m awake.

      Those colors look gorgeous! Can’t wait to see swatches.

      And I hope this round of antibiotics finally kills the infection. *hugs*

      • Phyrra

        Me too. I’m sure that when I get the results back on friday, if this antibiotic isn’t the right one we’ll switch to one that is.

      Argh I hope it/you get better soon! D:

      On a lighter note, these look REALLY pretty :D especially 24k and Chartreuse.

      • Phyrra

        Yay, I’m definitely looking forward to trying them out.

      Sending you healing energy, hopefully this goes away this time. I think I felt your pain when I read ‘cut the bite open’ yikes.

      These shadows look gorgeous, Damaged looks like it may be something special :P

      • Phyrra

        Hopefully it will go away soon! Though I’m pretty confident since we cut it and swabbed it to take cultures, we’ll get it this time.

      OOOH lovely colors!

      So sorry about your leg, I hope it heals quickly. Cuddle up to Phaedra in the meantime, I’m sure she’ll help you feel better!

      • Phyrra

        I cuddled with her last night, it definitely helped.

      The colors look beautiful, can’t wait for the swatches.

      I’m sorry about your leg, I hope it gets better soon.

      Get better soon!

      • Phyrra

        Thank you! I hope so.
        Friday I’ll get back my results on the culture and figure out what’s going on with my leg.
        Unfortunately today, Phaedra seems sick, so I’ve got another worry :(

    • http://kathyfuckingjacobs.blogspot.com Kathy

      Yikes! I had no idea spider bites could be so awful (aside from black widows and brown recluses, I mean). Hope it gets better soon! Also sending good vibes Phaedra’s way. :(

      • Phyrra

        I unfortunately am allergic to all insect bites, so I always have some minimal swelling. But this is the worst experience I have EVER had with a spider bite. I’m just thankful that I was NOT bit by a brown recluse. AMG. Awful. Thank you for the good vibes for Phaedra.

    • Selenite

      Well, I’m thankful that you weren’t bit by a Brown Recluse either. They’ve supposedly been showing up in the lower part of my state. Sorry that the bite is causing you so much trouble.

      • Phyrra

        Me too! They’re not supposed to be in FL, but a few of my friends down here have suffered from their bites.
