@@Imberis Your description of Venetian Waltz made me so hungry. I would kill for a cake with molasses and raisins. Maybe not so much a body butter though... :lol:

 

LoL! I wouldn't mind that cake, either. It's one of the weirder scents I've smelled. It's just so jarring to smell the cake scent and then wham, I'm hit by this weird raisin scent!

I don't have an indie makeup yet but do plan to buy a few products before the end of the year. I saw some Charmed Collection eye shadows. I think I'm going to get 'Hell Hath No Fury'

I also saw on Notoriously Morbid they have a Supernatural collection. I want to get 'Eye of the Tiger' and maybe 'Hallelujah'. I also want a sample of 'Shoes to Kill for' in the OZ collection and 'Crimson Horror' in the Doctor Who collection.

 

One thing I wish I could find is horror movie based collections. Sounds weird, I know but I am a horror fanatic and if I found like a It or A Nightmare on Elm Street or even Scream collection I'd die.

darling girl! They have a horror movie collection. I have been eyeing Here's Johnny for awhile.

I'm debating about a HoG order. Should I wait until I can get mini pumpkin butters of all the scents I want or try the sugar scrubs and get most the scents now and place a separate order later? I'm supposed to be on a no-buy but I want to treat myself for all the hard work I put into passing my core review.

I just would rather have pumpkin butters than so many scrubs even though I've never tried them.

 

Ok, I think I am going to order the scrubs but I really want to try hearth but they are only available in full size. Can anyone vouch for it? Did anyone get a sample?

 

eTA: I was good. I only ordered a Hearth whipped soap and a horseman bubbling scrub. I have been putinf off buying the horseman for a long time (mainly beause I am allergic to horses and that detected me) but I figured I should get it just in case I loved it. I'm going to wait until the restock to buy the other scents I want in pumpkin butters.

@bsquared I know!! I saw and was so happy but the colors just didn't call out to them. I thought they would have been much more darker. Like Blacks, deep reds, Purples, Deep olive colors or something.

 

 

 

@mikaglam I saw! I just didn't care for any of those but I do want a few of their other collections. I can't wait for Christmas collections to start coming around.

 

Also, I feel like I'm not replying properly. Everytime I manually do the '@etc' it never highlights their user like when I copy and past. But when I do that that this weird grey box is in part of the text.

@@Shalott I really want Carny Wedding. I'm thinking Shark Friday will be the time to do so! 

 

Yesss, get it if you can! By now it is mostly faded on me and the wrist that previously had Dessert Absinthe smells sweet, and the one that had Grimoire smells smoky, LOL. :laughing:

For Nars Orgasm fans, may I recommend a new cream blush from Sugar Skull Minerals called Skinny Dip! I received a sample that's maybe a dime's diameter in a clamshell and looks a rich bronze, but it took the tiniest amount to blend out into a lovely peachy tone with just enough pink in the mix to make it interesting. I'm so glad to have gotten this because I was hedging on buying one--it looked too deep on screen for my pasty Viking complexion.

 

Now for those of you who have ordered from Cocoa Pink, around how long has it actually taken for shipping? I made my first order last Friday with the sale. I was going to get their version of Hello Sugar but decided on Boo Boo Lemon Noel and Champagne Sugar perfume oils, bubbling scrubs and body cream. And a, um, special product called Meow. I'll be polite and let you look that one up on your own. :-)

 

I have been going on a bit of a fragrance bender lately, with orders anxiously awaited from Haus of Gloi, Debaucherous, Pink Bow Bath Boutique, and Queen Bee Trading in addition to Cocoa Pink, and have more bonbons coming from Sugar Skull, For Goodness Grape and Whimsical Apothecary, and I'm seriously debating pulling the trigger on a One Hand Washes The Other order (in a rare twist, I really disliked the order I made a couple months ago but loved the free sample enough to go back to the shop!)

I'm curious if anyone has bought anything from the brand witch Slap Cosmetics or Meow Cosmetics. I've been looking at their site and some of their eye shadows are just beautiful. 

 

I was wondering if they work well.

And, hey, speaking of pressing issues and holding people accountable, has anyone received or even seen evidence of the Halloween Madd Cat Monthly bag yet? It was initially supposed to go out the 21st, then that was changed to "tomorrow and the next day" on the 27th. I have excellent luck with shipping and usually get my stuff within a day or two of processing through the originating post office. Hell, I've received about five different packages that were sent after the 27th. But I haven't received this one, and I don't see anyone on Facebook or Instagram with it yet.

I got mine today no shipping notification just showed up.

Yeah, mine arrived today, too!  And...  Meh.  I was expecting something much more interesting since this was their grand finale.  They did send three full-sized jars, so that was nice, but... I just don't know.  Maybe their lack of bubble wrap just really rubs me the wrong way.

 

 

Colors (my lighting sucks, so no photos, and these descriptions are my own and thus may be *way* off):

  • Grave Digger -- Cadet blue with purple and aqua sparkles
  • Jeeper Creepers -- medium purple with many different sparkles
  • May the Force Be with You -- grass green with green sparkles

 

Baggies:

  • Dem Bones -- sparkly ivory
  • Black Widow -- black
  • Samhain -- orange

 

*Huge* baggie of Glow Bronze in ChaCha (the baggie itself is huge.  I'm kind of not sure why they used one this size)

 

I do like the green, but I think it's very, *very* close to something I already have.

 

 

I'm kind of kicking myself for ordering this now due to its timing.  Since it arrived after Halloween, it's going to be put away with my other Halloween collections, and I will revisit them next October, unless I put them on my swap list and manage to swap them away next year.  Just...  Meh.

If by Witch Slap you mean something that rhymes with Witch, no...I have heard horrible things about them, from repackaging to pushing unsafe face pigments as eye makeup. This was a few years ago and maybe they've cleaned up their act, but the reviews I read in 2011 were enough to scare me off them and almost scared me off indies in general.

 

Meow, on the other hand, I can't say enough wonderful things. Everything I've bought is excellent quality, wears well, and has caused no bad reaction in either myself or my husband. (I typically have to sample everything I use prior to full-size purchases, because poor Louie and his sensitive skin flare up with the Eczema of Evil far too easily.) Their customer service and follow-through are wonderful and they do a great job of keeping on top of their orders and workflow.

Here's my Madd Cat variation. It looks like they ran out of jars, which is expected when a business is closing its doors, so no complaints from me. I'm excited for the blush, and I think Grave Digger is beautiful.

I've thought about May the 4th, but I'm hoping that Shiro brings theirs back next year!  I know it was an anniversary color, but, hey, they have an anniversary every year, so why not bring it back every year? 

 

As for Cocoa Pink, I went to the website last night to add some stuff to my Elfster list, and their TAT was 30 to 45  *business* days.  This translates to TEN WEEKS.  I closed the tab.

 

Now in kicking myself for not ordering this! I am a huge Star Wars fan Hmph.

I forgot to mention this part:  The obviously Halloween shades were in clear jars with clear lids and no company label.  May the Force Be With You was in a jar with a black lid and company label.  It's not a new shade.  It was created for one of these bags back in May.  In the past, they would send random old LE stuff and/or permanent colors along with the monthly color(s) in these bags.  I don't know whether everyone is getting this one or if it varies.

Also, two things for those who have asked:

 

1. Any time I've ordered from CocoaPink, I get my goodies about a week or a week and a half later.

 

2. Meow Cosmetics is amazing!

So, I just spilled my Ghost Puffs perfume all over my night shirt, ruining it (though it smells great!) and using up most of my bottle :( Right after I was so stoked about getting the hair oil and whipped soap!! My life.

Ahh,that sucks, I am sorry! I picked up a bottle by the stopper once, on accident, which then popped off and spilled the scent all over me. It's such a bummer!

I've only made a couple of orders but I like them a lot! They're very inexpensive ($4.50 or so for an approx 1/3 ounce rollerball oil) yet excellent quality, and the scents have staying power. There is a nice little set the name of which escapes me--the Girlie Girl gift set or some such thing--that has a rollerball and a mini body butter for $10. That would be a great intro! They also have first-rate communication and problem resolution. With my last order I received a message that they had run completely out of rollerball bottles, so they offered to switch my perfume up to a 2 ounce spray. Of course I jumped on that! The items are made to order so there's an approximate TAT of 5 or 6 days which I think is pretty good for something made from scratch.

OMG you guys.  I can finally squee here because I've said my proper thank-yous on another board.  I did a 13 Days of Halloween/Day of the Dead swap, and my person ABSOLUTELY SPOILED ME with Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs Imps.  26 of them, I'm tellin' ya.  Classics like Snake Oil and Dragon's Milk,  so many of the Alice In Wonderland collection.  I've been twitching with happiness for DAYS.  

 

LOOK AT THE PRETTIES:

    • For a long time I was looking for a remedy that would help from rashes and acne and finally found its ideal remedy for problem skin. I ordered it on the site https://koreakos.com/skin-care/cream/acnes-moisture-cream-50ml. The tool should be applied in the morning and evening, after clearing the skin. After the first application, all the redness on the skin goes away, it becomes more healthy and even. I was very pleased with the result! 
    • Cleanse your skin twice a day (morning and night) using tepid water and a cleanser that is gentle, fragrance-free and suited to your skin type. Avoid using regular soap, which promotes acne. Regular cleansing helps eliminate any surplus of sebum on the skin's surface. Get More Information:-  https://genericcare.blogspot.com/2019/02/normal-0-false-false-false-en-us-x-none.html  
       
    • Having diabetes can also cause you to lose morehair than usual. ... People with diabetes are more likely to have a condition called alopecia areata. With alopecia, the immune system attacks the hairfollicles, leading to patches of hair loss on the head and on other parts of the body, While there's not a lot of research connecting high-sugar diets with hair loss, experts know that sugar promotes inflammation. When people eat sugar or carbs,the sugar floods the blood, causing a spike of insulin and androgens, which bind tohair follicles and cause the hair to fall out.
    • How it feels to be shopping too much after being on No Buy for a year It's been almost a month now of shopping too much after breaking my No Buy, and I've had a lot of feelings of sadness, guilt, and anxiety. I feel worse than ever about my shopping, because it's creating cognitive dissonance with the new habits I set up last year. I have noticed the following thoughts and feelings: Rip Van Winkle/ROMO Effect - I did not keep up with beauty boxes and promos through all of 2018. I was blissfully ignorant. When I began shopping again, I saw many things I missed during the year, and now have ROMO (Regret on Missing Out). For example, I became aware of all the Sephora Play! Smarts boxes from last year, and wanted to buy them from eBay! This is a little overwhelming! All the dazzling new things and exciting, new to me box programs like Boxyluxe and Ipsy upgrades are even more tempting as I have been away so long.  I feel selfish. When I'm shopping for myself, I feel I should be saving the money to help family members. I began to contribute and share more with family during my No Buy, and now I feel bad focusing so much on myself again. I complained to my cousin that I was sad that my New Years resolutions were a failure. In the middle of all my haul packages I had a little package from her with a Celtic charm in a little green bag and inspirational bookmarks. I felt bad, because she has it really rough. Her husband works for the government, so he has been out of work in this cruel winter. Here she is sending me a package. I should be doing for her and for my other family members instead of all this selfish hauling.  I'm scared of getting a lot of new stuff! This is new. For a year I had a system. Everything was organized just so. I knew how much I had of each thing. I was getting close to the end of using all my back stocks of skin and hair care. Now when I go to haul, I want to buy things, but then I feel bad because there won't be room for them in the storage I have set up, and it will take me that much longer to use everything. I did not feel this way before being on No Buy for a year.  I learned a little bit about what really works for me during the No Buy year. I did a whole year of painstaking experimentation with Mary Kay eye shadow sample cards, and learned that many colors don't work for me. When shopping resumed, I was ready to grab for anything with a pretty package again, but then I recalled that those shades do not work for me. When I see all the fabulous new things, and get new things in the mail, it makes the things I have look old and tired. When I was not shopping, I loved my things, and I would not dream of parting with them. But when I began seeing new things, I had an impulse to throw the old stuff out, which my No Buy self would be dead against.  I'm scared of going into more debt. I worked so hard to pay off debt through all of 2018, and I have been opening up new credit cards to shop. I keep telling myself I'll use them in a controlled way, but that never worked in the past. I'm scared and want them to hurry up and come in the mail so I can close them. I won't have peace of mind until I can get rid of them.  This whole mess up has left me feeling depressed. The bad feelings outweigh the fun, yet part of me still wants to buy. I want to try to do it in a controlled way. I'm hoping I'll be calming down since it's been almost a month now.  I guess these feeling of cognitive dissonance show that my No Buy was a success in that it set up good habits or new attitudes, but my No Buy self is fighting, fighting, with my old shopping self. 
    • I got another little Shop Miss A haul: Enamel Clover Stud Earrings in White - very beautiful Barielle nail treatment cream Nail Strengthener in a pen form with a brush at the end  Body oils - African Musk; Baby Powder; White Linen Type - these smell good, especially the African Musk.  Excellent buy for $6.00.  Two more Shop Miss A hauls on the way.
