Argh, I bought a Rosy Cheeked Whipped Soap and now I am regretting not buying a perfume oil, because it seems like all I've done with the Yule collection is like things I didn't expect to, and dislike things I thought I'd enjoy. So naturally, I will probably love Rosy Cheeked. <_< The Hearth perfume better smell as good as the soap or I am going to be seriously regretting my choices. :lol:

Hearth as a perfume smells wonderful! It was a surprise favorite of the whole collection  :)

Oh yay, I'm happy to hear that! :)

 

I'm sad to say Three Treasures is a no for me, which stinks (ha!), because I purchased so many items in this scent. :( I smell like I've been in a barn...hay, and other barn like scents if that makes sense. Maybe the scrub will be different than the hair oil on me.

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 :)

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

Ice Queen (free sample), Why Not Zoidberg?

I want the Futurama collection so bad!

 

Also, I'm REALLY worried now. The Debaucherous orders were a MAJOR ($60-70) part of my SS gift, so without them I need a NEW GAME PLAN, FAST.

Back to Notoriously Morbid's _The Crow_ collection for a quick post:  I swear they just open up my brain and poke around for inspiration.  I was considering watching the entire film series on Thanksgiving -- *before* this collection was announced.  I remember wanting to suggest it when people were throwing out their own collection ideas but not bothering to post.  Everything crossed in the hope that I can get my mitts on it.  And time to find a new media property to focus my energy on so it will appear as another collection, whether VC, LE, or GC

 

(How awesome would it be to get one based on _The Shining_ in January or February, when we're losing our minds because winter will *never* end?  Blood red shadow, shimmery blue-gray of a neverending storm, hedge maze green, pale powder blue like the twins' dress, and a sheer sparkly lipcraft.  Or, ooh, the rust, brown, and red of the carpet, plus hedge maze green and the same sheer sparkly lipcraft.  Or _The Mist_.  I *desperately* want something based on that movie, but I've been having a hard time coming up with ideas for colors for that one.  Or _Rosemary's Baby_!  Or or or!)

I also really am lusting over that Futurama collection.

 

I'm worried about Debaucherous too :(

Hey all, I need a little help planning out my Black Friday strategy - is there a list anywhere of what indies are having BF special collections/items and approximately when they will be released? I need to know when to be home and when I can go out and hit the town!

I'm so excited, my first indie order shipped!  I won;t say what it is since it's for SeSa but it feels like the first of many to come.  I am having so much fun planning what to buy after the holidays.   :D

Guys, I got my VC today and it is AMAZING. The packaging, the colors, the snack. Amazing. This is my favorite one so far, hands down.

My VC is waiting for me at my house! I've been with the BF so I haven't been home but I texted my mom to bring it to me when we have dinner tonight lol (1st time for my BF to have a sit down with them, a little nervous! Lol he's met them before and they like him, but my parents are such trolls. Let's hope for the best lol)

Yay! Fantastic mail day!

My VC came and my Haus of Gloi order.  I am currently bathing in the lovely scent of Hearth (I got a full size since they were out of samples when I ordered, so happy I love it) and trying to figure out where I should go tonight to show off my awesome VC colors.  Also, I concur that the packaging this month is amazing :)

I believe @@Kelly Silva will be posting one on her blog soon.  I am betting if we ask nicely she will let us know when it goes up.

Whoo!  My VC is indeed here!  And I had *just* been thinking this morning that I was getting a little tired of wearing my HW Visage stuff for the past couple of weeks and needed to rotate something else into the box, so this is perfect timing. 

 

So the big question:  What were the preview shades everyone received?  I have

 

Mittens for Michael.  It's a shimmery medium purple.  I'm trying to figure out what it could be, and all I can come up with at the moment is _The Office_ or _Elf_, both of which seem like REALLY REALLY WEIRD things for this company to do.  And it's also totally the wrong color for Michael's oven mitt in _The Office_.  (And, wow, I never realized how much my boss's boss reminds me of Michael until I rewatched *that* little clip.

It was an indie order palooza at my house today!  Got my Nov NM VC and I agree with @ beautiful!  It is driving me crazy trying to guess next month's theme!

 

Also got my Shiro NBC order from 11/1/14 plus my Secret Santa gift she let me sneak in to get it before the ship date.

 

I got an Aromaleigh order with items for my Secret Santa and the Sol Invicitus sample collection for me.

 

Fyrinnae order with mostly Secret Santa stuff but something for me too but it was missing an item.  I emailed them about it.  Also I am not sure if the item they left out got replaced by a mini shadow or if their samples are really mini jars.  It states Free sample but is the same size as the minis I ordered!

 

Off to wallow in glitter and eat candy!

I just looked up the Office scene of the mittens and Phyllis's cardigan is this color? Other than that I have no clue what it could be, but I LOVE the office so I would love an office theme.

Nov NM VC so pretty! I don't want to touch them!  I bought clear lip gloss to try and mix in some of the shadows since they are lip safe.

@@lovepink Im sure I'll get over it, it's not like i don't have 300+ eyeshadows to play with *hehe* but it's just so stinking pretty. So sparkly. I just swatched it and kept moving my hand back and forth admiring the pretty. The BF just looks at me, shakes his head, and goes back to video games. Lol

 

Ohh I want to make a lip gloss. I wonder how to go about doing that. Off to look at some videos!

Fyrinnae sends jars as samples and the jars are the same size as the minis, but they have less product.  They are amazing at picking samples for me

Good to know!  This is my first time ordering from them!  I just got an email response back that they will send out my missing product and exactly what you said above!  My free sample was All Hallow's Eve.  Which is not a color I ever woould have pieced for myself but lools pretty!

    • Kulit sensitif adalah jenis kulit yang membutuhkan perawatan ekstra dan tindakan pencegahan karena lebih rentan terhadap infeksi kulit dan alergi. Dan keluhan yang paling umum bahwa perempuan dengan kulit sensitif berhubungan dengan pasca-cukur. Jadi, untuk membantu Anda, kami telah mencantumkan beberapa kiat cukur untuk anak perempuan dengan kulit sensitif.   1. Tips cukur untuk anak perempuan dengan kulit sensitif termasuk pembersih Seperti yang kita semua tahu kulit sensitif membutuhkan perawatan dan perawatan ekstra karena jenis kulit ini lebih rentan terhadap infeksi dan flakiness. Dan itu juga akan mudah terpengaruh oleh debu, membuat kulit Anda lebih rentan terhadap pori-pori, komedo dan bahkan menyebabkan kusut yang menjadi hambatan untuk bercukur halus. Jadi, untuk mencegah hal ini, disarankan bahwa Anda harus membersihkan kulit Anda tiga kali dalam sehari. Plus, selalu mencoba menggunakan tisu pembersih dengan elemen alami atau pembersih alami.   2. Lakukan eksfoliasi untuk mengangkat sel kulit mati Jika kulit Anda memiliki terlalu banyak rambut atau sel-sel kulit mati, pisau Anda dapat menangkap semuanya dan dapat menyebabkan iritasi. Jadi, menjadi lebih penting bahwa Anda mengelupas kulit Anda. Anda dapat menggunakan exfoliator alami seperti scrub gula atau kopi scrub. Tapi, bersikap lembut saat menggunakan exfoliator dan luangkan waktu Anda.   3. Gunakan pelembab untuk mencegah iritasi Umumnya, kulit sensitif lebih kering dan tidak memiliki hidrasi yang dapat membuat proses pencukuran menjadi menyakitkan dan bahkan dapat menyebabkan reaksi kulit. Jadi, menjadi lebih penting untuk menjaga kulit Anda lembab karena membantu menjaga tingkat pH kulit Anda dengan menjaganya tetap terjaga dan lembut.   4. Jangan pernah mencukur ke arah yang berlawanan dari pertumbuhan rambut Mencukur ke arah yang berlawanan dari pertumbuhan rambut adalah teknik yang sangat umum diikuti oleh wanita. Tapi, dalam kasus wanita dengan kulit sensitif, teknik ini dapat terbukti sangat menyakitkan dan menyebabkan ruam dan benjolan. Jadi, disarankan bahwa Anda harus mencukur ke arah yang sama dengan pertumbuhan rambut menggunakan pisau tunggal untuk mendapatkan pencukuran yang halus. Dan, lebih baik menghindari cukur jika Anda sudah memiliki luka atau cedera.   5. Bilas kulit Anda dengan air sebelum bercukur Jika Anda memiliki kulit sensitif dan Anda mencukur kulit Anda ketika kering maka itu adalah kesalahan besar. Umumnya, kulit sensitif kering di alam yang juga merupakan penyebab utama masalah kulit dan infeksi. Dan untuk alasan ini, disarankan bahwa Anda harus pergi untuk bilas air 5 menit untuk membuat kulit Anda lembab dan bercukur dengan lancar   6. Gunakan alat higienis untuk mencukur Jika Anda juga ingin menjaga alergi kulit dan infeksi, kebersihan adalah aspek penting untuk dipertimbangkan terutama dalam kasus kulit sensitif. Untuk mencegah infeksi dan alergi, sangat penting bagi Anda untuk menjaga pisau cukur tetap bersih. Pastikan Anda tidak menggunakan pisau yang sama setelah 3 hingga 4 penggunaan karena dapat menjadi kasar dan dapat menyebabkan pendarahan.   7. Jagalah kulit Anda pasca bercukur Sangat penting untuk merawat kulit pasca bercukur agar tetap halus dan bersih. Banyak wanita dengan kulit sensitif mengeluh tentang sensasi terbakar, ruam kulit dan iritasi setelah bercukur. Jadi, untuk mencegah itu, kami telah mencantumkan beberapa tips untuk merawat kulit Anda.   • Selalu bilas kulit Anda dengan air dingin setelah bercukur. • Jika Anda mengalami sensasi gatal atau menyengat, pastikan Anda menerapkan paket dingin. • Pastikan Anda menggunakan gel aftershave. Dan jika Anda memiliki kulit yang sensitif, maka pilihlah pelembab alami seperti minyak kelapa, gel lidah buaya untuk memberikan efek menenangkan pada kulit Anda. • Untuk mendapatkan bantuan dari segala jenis iritasi dan rasa sakit, Anda dapat menempatkan kain dingin di sekitar kulit Anda.
    • Eyebrow pencils are not just for those of you who have over-tweezed or thinning brows; they’re for everyone! Unless you are a genetically modified superhuman with the ability to control how your hair grows, it’s likely you may have a little patchiness in your brows from time to time—that includes those who have naturally defined eyebrows. This is why it’s important to A) own an eyebrow pencil and B) know how to use a brow pencil to make your eyebrows look fuller. How to Fill in Eyebrows
      Here are a few tips to help you get fuller brows… or at least look like you have fuller brows! Find Your Perfect Brow Shape
      Finding your best eyebrow shape is critical when filling in your brows; otherwise, it’s sort of like drawing outside of the lines. You’ve likely heard that changing your eyebrow shape can completely change the way you look, and it’s true.  Brush Them Up
      Now that you know your shape, it’s time to start the fill-in process. This helps reveal your eyebrow’s true shape and it will also help you see any patchy areas that need a little extra love. Fill Them In
      Fill in your brows using short, dash-like strokes. Make sure your strokes are going in the direction of your hair. That means, on the tail portion of your brow, the strokes should go toward the end of your brow, but as you get closer to the head of your brow (by your nose), the strokes show go in an upward direction.  Add Powder for a Deeper Color
      If you want to make our brows stand out, even more, you can layer brow powder on top of the eyebrow pencil. Use the angle brush and powder from the  Eyebrow Kit to add definition to your brows. Using the same short motions, brush the powder into the last two-thirds of your eyebrows. Keep the inner third of your brows powder-free to help create a natural gradient look. The Best Eyebrow Pencil Shade for You
      As important as is it to know how to fill in your eyebrows to make your brows look fuller, we also know it’s important to use the right shade of Retractable Brow Pencil. That’s why we have 5 shades for virtually any brow color (except, maybe pink or blue—try our lip or eye pencils instead if you like dying your brows fun colors!). Here’s the trick to remember: most brunettes have eyebrows that are a similar shade to their hair color, but if you have grey, blonde or red hair, your brows are usually slightly darker than your natural hair color. Check out the below guide for your best brow pencil shade.
