Some Recent Mail

While I’ve been on a low buy, I have made a budget for some purchases and here are some of the things I’ve picked up recently.

First is the Dia De Los Muertos collection from Fyrinnae!

Look at how cute the mini-jars are! They’ve got little skulls on them.

Full Size
Calavera Cupcakes – Glimmering metallic silver topped with sprinkles of vivid pink.
Catrina Cabaret – Deep cool teal frolicks with a fun pink-purple highlight and sparkle.

Mini Size
Dinosaur Plushie – a true bright silver with multi-colored sparkle
Madame & Eve – vivid sparkling teal that morphs into violet and gleaming magenta
Eternal Innocence – rich, vivid emerald green with a hint of teal, shimmery
Te Amo – a glowing iridescent copper highlight
La Noche – deep sapphire blue, dark like an autumn evening sky
Sacred – a pale glowing metallic taupe
Danse Macabre – bright festive lime green with shimmering yellow highlight
Polar Bear – White-gold, shimmery and soft
Temptation (free blush sample)- deep plum with just a hint of shimmer. no dyes.

Next is my order from Meow.

I picked up Witch & Bad Luck from the Halloween Collections.

Meow was also kind and sent me samples of their new collections, Alien Abduction, Shattered Equinox and Sunless Sea for review purposes. I’ll be swatching these as soon as I possibly can!

Finally, I placed a small order with CherryCulture.com to take advantage of the Milani sale.

News Flash – a burgundy with pink-fuchsia micro shimmer
Flash Light – a shimmery coral
In a Flash – a fuchsia with blue reflect
Photo Flash – a rasperry shimmer
Aqua – metallic aqua
Black – black

      ohhhhh I’m so jealous of your fyrinnae order… I have been itching to grab a bunch of shadows but they are closed for a few days.
      I’ve been eyeing those milani lip flash pencils, how do you like them?

      • Phyrra

        I haven’t worn them yet, just swatched them. Will be able to tell you better after I wear them. However, they have looked great on so many people on other blogs, I caved when I saw the sale.

      What awesome eyeshadows! I’m going to go broke–I fall in love with something every time you show a new swatch!

      • Phyrra

        Yeah I really love Catrina Cabaret! Two of my favorite colors together – teal and fuchsia.

      I can’t wait to see all these swatched! Especially the new Meow collections. I also can’t wait for my Fyrinnae order, I picked up dinosaur Plushie too and I can’t wait to see it.

      • Phyrra

        I really am excited to swatch them. I probably won’t be able to do it until this weekend.

      I feel myself going broke! I can see exactly why you couldn’t resist those gorgeous mineral shadows. Oo-la-la!

      The In a Flash lippie looks awesome- and do we have Fryinnae swatches up yet? (after I post this, I’m peeking back to make sure I haven’t missed any!) Can’t wait to hear what you think of the Milani pencils- are they worth the hype?

      • Phyrra

        I’ll be getting them up this weekend! I worked some 10 hour days this week and just didn’t have any time to swatch :(

    • http://paintedmoogle.blogspot.com Aubrey

      I want the Dia De Los Muertos Collection so badly, but every time I have the money and go to Fyrinnae’s site, they’re temporarily closed. XD

      I’ll have to jump on it next time they’re open.

      • Phyrra

        They’ll be up soon, I’m sure of it!

      The new Fyrinnae colors look just too good… :D

      • Phyrra

        They really do!

    • http://bettyrayblogs.blogspot.com/ Katrina

      Oh no! Fyrinnae has new stuff? Ahhhh, I just swore off buying more makeup right now. I may have to cheat just a bit for a few of these. And one is named Catrina so I really do HAFTA have at least that one. :)

      • Phyrra

        You do! It’s my favorite of the bunch because of it the pink-purple iridescence.

    • http://eyelinerandspraypaint.blogspot.com robyn

      Oooh, pleeeease post the fyrinnae swatches! I’m waiting on Dance macabre, Madame and Eve, Polar Bear and Dinosaur Plushie! The milani pencils look fab too – I really like what I’ve been able to get hold of lip-wise from them.

      • Phyrra

        I will as soon as I can!

    • Invicta

      I’d love to see your swatches of Dia de los Muertos and I JUST developed a lemming for the Lip Flash pens after seeing In a Flash and Star Flash swatched. I must try at least one

      • Phyrra

      I am so mad at myself for missing Dinosaur Plushie when I ordered the new collection. *pouts* Well, at least I have to order more primer soon.

      • Phyrra

        It’s not part of Dia De Los Muertos, but I remembered seeing it on Twitter, so had to nab it :)

        • http://www.aijuswhanakno.com Mika Chan

          It’s okay, Mr. F thought of me and included it in my order <3

          • Phyrra

            Yay! Awesome!

    • http://www.drugstoreandbargainlover.com Stavroula Plag

      Nice hauls!!! :) I really want to get my hands on the Milani eyeliner pencil you got, I’ve heard they’re nice and creamy! :)

      • Phyrra

        They are nice and creamy! After wearing the black and Aqua, they don’t stick around as well as my 24/7s by UD, but they still do pretty well.
