Some Very Nice Mail

I’ve really met some amazingly generous and kind people since I started blogging. I received some really nice mail from several of them recently.

Suds n’ Sass

Elizabeth of Suds n’ Sass sent me a really nice care package! She sent me one of her new Kiss My Sass lip glosses. She also sent me one of her blushes, Violetta.
Miami – a sheer gloss with a turquoise/blue/violet interference (not vegan)
Violetta – a vibrant violet that can be applied sheer or built up to be more dramatic (satin)(V)
She also sent me two un-named glosses, a bright candy pink with purple shimmer and a pretty violet with turquoise iridescence.
I suggested that she name the violet Bad Romance and the bright candy pink Bachelorette. So very soon, you’ll see these glosses :)

I really like that the blush can be used on the eyes, lips, face and nails.

My friend Erline was very sweet and sent me some Barry M Dazzle Dusts as I’d really wanted to try some :) Isn’t the card she sent beautiful? I think the following shades are vegan, as Barry M’s site lists the shades that are not suitable for vegans and these #s aren’t listed.

Petrol Black (dd98) – black with flecks of aqua, blue and violet (to my eyes)
Bright Indigo (dd99) – vivid indigo with blue and purple flecks
Burgundy Noir (dd102) – deep burgundy with a black base

I fell in love with Petrol Black and immediately had to wear it.

Silk Naturals

Karen from Silk Naturals was very sweet and sent me some of her new Harry Potter and Hawaii collections to try out. I’ve already worn Mango (love) and I’ll be swatching the rest soon. These new collections are donating $1 of each purchase to the cause of Women for Afgan Women.

Shade Descriptions (I think these are all vegan)
Dark Arts – deep golden green
Lychee – nude berry pink
Phoenix – bronze wine blush
Envoy – sheer white pearl
Teacher’s Pet – golden taupe pearl
Guava – nude mauve blush
Mahalo – light golden pearl
Ginger – peachy coral blush
Hero – golden tearl pearl
Pacific – matte blue with gold shimmer
Aloha – deep green pearl
Mango – bright orange shimmer
Hibiscus – bright hot pink
Delacoeur – light pink shimmer
Ginny – sheer coral shimmer

      Violetta looks gorgeous! Can’t wait to see you wear it.

      I’ve been meaning to order Harry Potter&Hawaii stuff from SN. How do you like SN butter creams compared to kisser slickers? Are they as moisturizing and how opaque are they? Are the blushes as satiny as they look in the swatches on SN website?

      • Phyrra

        I really like the butter creams! They’re very moisturizing and opaque. I haven’t tried these blushes yet but the other blushes I have from SN are really nice!

        • keijukainen

          I really like SN blushes too and the mineral glows are amazing. But I’ve 1 or 2 blushes that are a little too sheer and only give a bit shimmer/glitter to my cheeks. The swatches on these looked more satiny than glittery and I’m looking for a less shimmery blushes for fall.

          Great to hear butter creams are moisturizing and opaque! The new shades are so pretty too :-)

          • Phyrra

            The main thing I’ve noticed with the blushes/glows is that sometimes they’re ‘warmer’ temperature wise than I expected. Still VERY lovely.
