Recent Mails

I received some fun packages recently.

Before DragonCon, I had purchased the Blogger Sample Set from Concrete Minerals. Emily was very kind and delayed sending out my package until I got back from the convention. Then she had an issue where my package was temporarily delayed a bit more, so when I did receive it, she had thrown in a few extras.

The 4 shades I chose:
Ruse – bronze with gold sparkle
Lolita – shimmery taupe with pink undertones
Temptress – dark teal with gold sparkle
Sabotage – black with pink sparkle and sheen
The extras she included:
Arsenic – shimmery red-brown with blue undertones
Nocturne – deep mossy green

I’ve already worn Lolita in two looks (here and here) and I REALLY like the color.

I received a sweet package from Amy of Sugarpill, containing the 7 new colors that she recently released.

Darling – Stunning teal loaded with iridescent turquoise star bursts.
Magentric – Metallic deep magenta with a dazzling turquoise sheen.
Stella – The blackest of jet blacks, bursting with rainbow diamond sparkle.
Weekender – Metallic blue-violet with intense sparkle and sheen.
Birthday Girl – Sweet princess pink with iridescent fuchsia sparkles.
Tipsy – High-shimmer true grass green.
Paperdoll – Lovely lavender with dazzling shimmer and sparkle.

I received two awesome towers from Glamour Doll Eyes new Towers series. One is for me (yay!) and the other is for a giveaway for you (yay!).

Phyrra Tower
Angel Wings – a very pearly white with a hint of purple sparkle
Phyrra – hot pink with aqua sparkles
Tattooed – a blend of matte and shimmer, bright blue with shimmery purple
Island Chic – a blend of green, blue and touch of gold

Finally I received some lovely colors from Kim at Overall Beauty to try out. You may be more familiar with their lovely BB Couture polish line, or their more recent Gabrielle Faust eye shadow collection.

Metal Rose – sheer black base with red highlight
Pink Magic – intense pink with blue sheen
Elf Toes – shimmery golden pink
Dancer – orange gold shimmer
Bronze Turquoise – bronzed turquoise
Mermaid Hair -green with spring mint green glitter

I will be swatching all of these for you as soon as I have time. I’ve been working longer hours, so that has cut into some of my free time that I normally spend blogging.
