Nyx Angel Veil Primer
I’m sure this one comes as no surprise, considering my rave review.

Pravana Chromasilk Vivids Hair Dye
Currently I have Vivid Violet (diluted with 50% conditioner), Wild Orchid and Green (diluted with 80% conditioner and a splash of SFX Blue Haired Freak). See my purple gradient tutorial.

Makeup Geek Makeup Brushes
I’ve been using these brushes from MUG every time I wear makeup. (vegan)

Makeup Geek Eyeshadows
I love the new shadows that I picked up from Makeup Geek. See my swatches here and here.

Espionage Cosmetics Astral Plane
This is a beautiful, complex purple. See my review.

Cargo LashActivator Mascara Primer
I love this! I use this alone with Anastasia Lash Genius or as a mascara primer.

Cargo HD Picture Perfect Mascara
I really like how this mascara helps to separate and elongate my lashes.

Anastasia Lash Genius
I love using this as a primer or topcoat (or both) to really waterproof my mascara if I’m going to be outside in the heat and humidity.

Josie Maran Argan Infinity Lip And Cheek Creamy Oil in Everlasting Honey
This is the perfect no flush blush shade. It really goes with anything. See my review.

Pretty Zombie Vegan Liquid Lipsticks
I love these liquid lipsticks!  I really want to pick up Pink Potion and ZomBettie :)

  • Black Cat – black
  • Blue Moon – blue
  • Purple Poison – red-based purple
  • 3 Witches – blue-based purple

      Maybe a silly question, but do you go to a salon for your colorings, (I love your current hair color!)? I have been going to salons for color but I have no salons that are close to me use CF products…which makes me super uncomfortable going to them. Any advice???

        i do my hair myself :) I got tired of paying $200-$300 for the color I wanted done and just started doing it on my own.

      Those brushes look really nice. I lost my favorite eye makeup brushes a couple weeks ago, but at least I still have my good foundation brushes. BTW, still loving my Cover FX concealer!

        Yay so happy to hear it! (re: the concealer)

      I love the Lash Genius as well. I use it every day over whatever mascara I happen to be using. Now I want the those Josie Moran blushes, damn you *shakes fist*. All of them. Like I really need more blushes but these look like they are different than anything else.
