Sick, without Phaedra, with Maximus & Fyrinnae

•••
Yesterday I ended up feeling sick, dizzy and feverish at work. I stayed there and worked, trying to get everything done because we were down a person. As I ended up feeling sick all night and feverish, I went to bed and woke up sick, too.  Since I'm flying next week for Thanksgiving and I absolutely cannot be sick while I fly, I took a sick day and spent mos[...]

Din's Fire

•••
I kept meaning to wear Din's Fire and Majora's Mask from Shiro Cosmetics, because they're both quite lovely colors, but didn't get a chance to do so until today. I ended up adding a bit Pixie Epoxy onto Majora's Mask and then more of MM because the color really is so pretty and I wanted all the gorgeous sparkles to really come out and be seen. [...]

Skin Tour with Dr. Irwin

•••
Recently my friend Jen of Mythbuster Beauty asked me if I'd heard of a book called, 'The Surgery-Free Makeover by Brandith Irwin. I'd been sent the book to read and review, but I hadn't yet read it (I was sent a hard copy and I often forget to read things that aren't in Kindle format, so I'm planning on reading it over Thanksgiving). Jen went on to tell m[...]

Veran's Meowth

•••
I felt the call of Veran this morning when I was trying to decide what to wear, so I paired it up with Meowth, another favorite of mine from Shiro. I think the look turned out beautiful and I even ended up complimented about it when I was getting waxed today, which was cool. Speaking of Shiro, go check out the lovely Grey's swatches here. You can also see An[...]

Morgana Cryptoria Lipsticks - Holy Grail

•••
While I've always loved lip products, it took me a long time to embrace lipstick. I used to prefer glosses because no matter what I did with lipstick, I'd somehow end up with some on my teeth and feel foolish. Eventually I learned how to properly blot, so I started exploring lipsticks. Enter Morgana Cryptoria lipsticks, in all sorts of fabulous colors, a[...]

Golden Copper

•••
I wanted to try Half-Baked with Feline Familiars today and I'm happy with the results. I'm now convinced that both colors are amazing - on their own and together. I also used MUFE's Aqua Cream in Golden Copper to pack an extra punch and I think the results turned out nice. I had to rush the pictures to get out the door on time, so they're not perfect, but th[...]

Update on Stila's Artist's Inspiration Palette

•••
I emailed both Sephora and Stila about the Artist's Inspiration Palette that I'd purchased from Sephora. Today, I got a response back from Ask Sarah at Stila Cosmetics. Her response, "you can use it on your lips and cheeks. i wouldn't use it on your eyes." This matches up with the statement on the back of the palette that says the pink is a che[...]
