  1. I wish I had done the Kickstarter thing! Glow-in-the-dark wraps would be awesome. I love the space/nebulae nail wraps I have from them so much that I bought more. The cat ones didn't work well for me, though, because you need to have pretty long nails to get the whole cat's face on there or do some fiddling with the strips to make the faces sit right on your nails.

     

    I normally prefer the real nail polish strips instead of "stickers," but these have good sticking quality. A lot of other brands are literally just stickers, and they come off as soon as you do the dishes or something.


  2. Ooh, quick drive-by post!  Photos to come later, but a brief overview of the contents.  The photo I saw on Instagram made it look like there was only two polishes in there.  Actual contents:

     

     

    • Two polishes (one is like a red-and-gold version of Aurora from last month, and the other is a glitter topper that reminds me of a snowball rolled in a mixture of gravel and crushed-up disco ball.  I mean this in a good way!  I'm seriously digging it!)
    • Scented top coat (YAY!)  (even though I also just picked up the cranberry sangria one as well.  I’ve been going through about half a bottle a month lately, so I will always welcome more!)
    • Lotion
    • Solid perfume
    • Cutlcle balm

    Those last four are in Muscovite, a new scent that has no real description but is a kind of chilly wintery fruity (and almost spicy) scent.

     

     

    And now I get to clean the litter box before I can do anything else.  Are you jealous yet?

     

    Thank for the information! I'm excited. Hopefully mine will just magically arrive tomorrow. LoL

    Edited to add: Ooooooooh, those are pretty!!


  3. Tried out a new indie company called Corvus Cosmetics. Ordered on the 16th and just received it today, so I'm pretty excited to try out my new colors! It's a collection inspired by Futurama. Anyway this will keep me pretty occupied until my Shiro order comes in :)

    Pretty packaging with a nice handwritten note and business card.

    Colors L-R: Champaggin?, Bite My Shiny Metal @$$, Clobberella, Smizmar,

    Fine Jamaican Bacon, Good News Everybody, Orange Joe, Zero G Jugs,

    Ice Queen (free sample), Why Not Zoidberg?

     

     

    I went ahead and got the sample sizes for the whole collection. I'm not big on green or blue eyeshadow on myself, but I figured if I got the rest of them, I might as well just get the whole thing.

    I need this! There is no way orange will look good on me, and I still want it. LoL


  5. Ulta, where everything's a tester.

     

    Seriously. I saw a woman do her entire face full of makeup at Ulta once. I didn't want to judge her because I don't know her situation, but man. That stuff has got to be really germy.

     

    I hate the Ulta here so now I only buy online from them. The store here never has what's advertised in the sale flyers, and they don't change out their in-store ad signs. If you try to buy a product that's "on sale" in the store (aka, there's a huge sign that says it's on sale right in front of the products even though the sale is technically over according to the flyer) they won't honor it. I've never gotten free samples there, either.

  6. I got my CocoaPink order today, and I like almost everything. I'll put my comments under a spoiler cut because it might be a little long.
     

     

    Princess Poo Shampoo: I chickened out and got the Herbal Essence type scent just in case I wasn't a fan of the CocoaPink scent blends. I love the shampoo. I could feel my hair getting softer while I was rinsing it out.

    Ends with Benefits conditioner: Got this in the Herbal Essence type, too, so that they'd match. I like it a lot. My hair looks shiny and feels really nice.

    Dry Oil Spray: I got this in Apricot Eyelet and Orange Blossom. I like the actual product. It soaks into my skin well and it doesn't feel greasy. The Orange Blossom is my favorite of the two scents. It's very citrusy, and almost like lemon verbena. It doesn't smell like orange blossom at all to me, unfortunately. The Apricot Eyelet scent is very foodie. Straight out of the bottle it smells just like vanilla cake batter. However, when it dries I do get the apricot scent, plus the cake batter scent. I'm not a foodie scent person, but I like it fine.

    Linen Spray: I chose Candied Fruits, Victorian Forest, Haunted Forest, Twist of Lime Noel, and Paper Butterfly. Straight off:
    - Paper Butterfly: The description sounded so good (amber, pale musk, sugar, etc.) but I just don't like it. It's like extra musky and kind of smells a bit like a headshop, which I hate.

    - Candied Fruits: I like this one. It's very sweet, but not cloying. It's a "dark" candy scent.

    - Victorian Forest: Love this! It just smells so much like Christmas. It's piney and minty and great.

    - Haunted Forest: I don't love this one. I smell a strange herbal note that is not in the description. The blurb for the scent mentions woodsy, teakwood, and dark pomegranate, but I don't really get much of any of those.

    - Twist of Lime Noel: At first spray, this smells like if Pine Sol and a lime had a baby together. and I love that! (I know that's weird.) When it dries, I get the vanilla scent on top of that.

    Plus I got some free samples!

    - Voluptous Body Butter in Venetian Waltz: The product itself feels very nice. It's a thick formula, but it melts right into my skin. The scent is way, way too foodie for me, though. It's like cake batter + molasses, and when it dries I swear I smell those plus raisins.

    - Soft Bubbles foaming sugar scrub in Goblin- Again, I like the product, but the scent is a little too foodie for me. It's really marshmallowy and sweet.

    - Argan Therapy Creme in Green Apple Noel- I haven't tried the product yet, but the sample size is quite nice. I thought I'd hate the scent, but I don't! It's heavy on the green apple and light on the vanilla. Very nice.

     

     

    I'm pretty happy with my purchase!

  7. My thoughts so far:

     

     

     

    Kind of bummed that most of the scents aren't very Christmassy (SO FRUITY), but at least there are a few. SO excited for I Pledge Allegiance, Amen. :D Also pumped to try their whipped soap & deep conditioner.

     

     

     

    That's the one scent that I want to try, too.

     

    I like the labels on this collection. They look so Christmassy.


  8. I finally wore an Aromaleigh shadow today! I'm not big on wild and wacky makeup (not that this is, but I always wear way too understated makeup), but I thought I might as well, since I own it! I wore Boudicca, and it is so pretty on.

     

    And my Cocoapink order (that I placed before the sale, boooo) will be here tomorrow! The site said the TAT was 10 or more days, but it took way less than that for it to ship.
