For you who are getting you HoG orders, were they from the Yule release on 11/2? I have received nothing yet, not even a notification. This is very unlike them.

I'm also waiting on my HoG Yule order (mine is from 11/3).  They upped their TAT to 13-15 days, so it's still within that.  I'm thinking they're just very busy, but if I don't hear anything by next Monday I'm gonna write.

 

Also, so sad I missed Shark Friday.  I had placed an order for 3 bitsies and I wanted to see if I like them before ordering more stuff.  They got here yesterday and I LOVE them.  Oh well, I'll order more once they re-open, though if anyone ends up hating anything they got let me know :)

Mine were from 11/2 (HoG) and they JUST arrived yesterday so it did take about 10 business days in all. :)

OH MY GOD you guys I got my Sol Invictus order today and just... dead. If these were just a palette, I would never have to use another shadow again, ever. I didn't swatch anything because I was having a moment and I didn't even see the package at first because it was buried under HoG and some others but holy moly. So pretty. Already bought full sizes of two, gonna have to go back for more.

100% AGREE! This collection is phenomenal. Ive been wearing it every day since I got it. I see at least 2 of my friends getting sample sets for the holidays because I HAVE to share how beautiful these are!

 

Played with a few more of my HoG goodies - Plotter's Breakfast and Snow Wolf. I chose them because I'd seen a few folks mention they weren't really sure what they thought about them, ad yeah I can totally get that. Snow Wolf starts out super fresh and fir-scented, then kind of dries away to pine cleaner and licorice. Not bad, but not OHMYGOD amazing, either. I'd only buy a sample if I had to do it again. Plotter's Breakfast is weird, but a good weird, I think. I get strong scents of oat and tobacco, and on the bottom quite a level woody base. The oddest is the like... tangyness which is a terrible word to describe a scent. I'm not sure where it comes from but it makes the scent quite unique. I personally like it though, so if you have Plotter's Breakfast you can't deal with, let me know, I will take it!

 

Gonna try Wintervale and Three Treasures today. I've got to crack open my Hearth Bubbling Scrub so I can see if that is a scent I want more of, too! Benzoin always smells like hairspray to me, so we shall see. And since I've brought it up, I am totally bummed I didn't get Parkin anything. Has anyone tried it? Is it good? I have it on my Elfster list, but I am pretty tempted. Argh, must behave though!

Parkin is my favorite scent of this collection actually! It smells like a bright pumpkin gingerbread. I am super happy I impulse bought it because I had no idea how much I'd like a spicy gingerbread!

@ You've just enabled me to put Parkin on my list for the HoG restock (and to buy more Sol Invictus shadows, but I was going to do that anyways)! Also many thanks to my kind Santa for letting me know I was safe with Parkin. ;) I really do appreciate it!

Just got my HoG order from the Yule release yesterday as well! And I'll say...I think I am all set with the Yule release. In my original order, I hadn't gotten all of the non-perfume items I wanted, so I thought I'd be buying more, but thus far there aren't any scents that I'm like OH GOD MUST HAVE ALL THE THINGS (like I was with Ghost Puffs and Pumpkin Eater from the fall release). I *like* Sweet Potato Treat and Eggnoggin' a lot (Eggnoggin' is so true to the Eggnog scent!), but not enough that I need to add to my ever-growing stash of lotions and body washes (or whipped soaps, in the case of HoG). [i did get a bubbling scrub in Eggnoggin', but missed everything for Sweet Potato Treat].

 

Thus far I am not as in love with Fancy Bread as I expected to be, which is a bummer, because I got the whipped soap and mini pumpkin butter in the scent too! I've only tried the perfume so far, and the initial top note is just SOOO banana-y (and a fake banana candy smell, not a muted banana bread smell) on me that it is hard to get past. On the dry-down I get much more of the nuttiness and sugar (and they smell delicious!). I'm just worried the bath products are going to be heavy on the banana scent. 

 

I also received perfume samples of Hearth (purchased) and Wintervale (my freebie), but haven't tried them yet. Oh and two of their bath bombs (Sugar Cookie and Gingerbread) which smell lovely! I think I'll try one of those tonight...

 

 
ETA: OOPS sorry Secret Santa, I realize some of those were on my wishlist! Never fear if you have already or planned to order them!!! I meant I can't really justify purchasing any more myself--I would LOVE to receive some as gifts!!!

With the Yule release I made a couple orders and ended up getting two samples of Parkin.  I ordered one and one was a free sample.  I only opened one to sniff and really didn't like it; I haven't even wanted to put it on.  However, I'd be happy to send you one!

First I want to say amazing CS from Caitlin at shiro cosmetics. I had contacted her to ask if I placed an order for items if I would have them by the mail date for Secret Santa. i have an order for the halloween collection pending from 11/1/14. She told me it would be fastest to add my Secret Santa order to current order so I sent a list of what I want and she is going to paypal me the recpt. But it seems if people are interested in ordering from them for Secret Santa it may be best to mail it directly to the santee!

My HoG arrived today.  I don't like Wintervale on me as much as I thought I would.  And of course I ordered full size.  I am one of the omg...Fancy Bread peeps though.  And yay, they still had a full size in the store.  I went ahead and ordered now and may try to pick up more soap and scrub in the restock on Thurs.

Yay, my mystery is solved:  I received tracking as well, but I also have an outstanding order, and I wasn't sure whether it was the order or the VC!

I'm going to cry. Two of my indie jar containers for knocked over and the majority of my brilliant deductions collection and others spilled out. Those lids are not tight. I am just beyond upset right now.

 

I picked up the mess. Most survived. my Shiro Seven Kingsoms took the biggest hit. I'm glad they were only sample jars, but still. Samples last me forever. :(

 

Also: My luck would have it be the darkest colors possible. It couldn't have been a nice neutral easy to clean color. It has to be the blacks.

VC shipping, and I finally got shipping for my Nov. 3rd Haus of Gloi order.  The only think I'm upset about, it won't be here in time for me to decide if I need to get anything at the restock.  The only thing I really missed out on is Wintervale, and I can do without if that's the only thing I would be buying.  Looks like I might be skipping the restock.

My Visage from HW arrived yesterday.  Am I the only one that is disappointed with the lip theory?  It is like my lips but blah-er.  And it felt like it should be a little more pink to fit in with the theme of the box.  I ended up putting NM's Serannian Dreams Lipcraft on top of it though.  Then it became pretty magical.  But on it's own...yuck.

Same. I thought it looked pretty in the tube but after I put it on I immediately wiped it off.
