Rocky Horror!

I went a few weeks ago with my friend Kirstin to see Rocky Horror on stage starring the one and only Sharon Needles as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, she was FANTASTIC! For those who don't know, Sharon was the winner of RuPaul's Drag Race season 4. ;) The show was great and we had a good time, even got to get Sharon's autograph after the show,she's so fab and I felt like a total boob. Anywho, on to the look!

Didn't get the lashes as close to the lash line as I wanted. OH WELL!

Hope you like this look and thank you for reading. :)

Madd Style Halloween swatches

These are SO late it isn't even funny and for that I am sorry, I've been on a bit of a stricter budget and haven't been purchasing nearly as much as I was, there are also a few personal things going on keeping me from blogging. Anywho, on to the swatches of this incredibly lovely collection by the lovely Mo at Madd Style Cosmetics, these were from the Halloween grab bag that sold out crazy fast. There were two other Halloween collections as well, the Alice in Zombie Land and Shaun of the Dead collections, when I get those I shall post here as well. :)

Everything came in this cute pumpkin bag

Stickers, card, buttons and piggies, OH MY!

A glitter and shadow sample. 

Blush sample! I'm totally into blushes and lippies right now, so it's perfect. 

This smells like happy and feels like silk on

Please don't mind my horribly chipped nails :/

The Bride. LOVE

Frankenberry, my new favorite highlight color!

Wolfsbane, love it and am sad the pretty orange sparkles did not show. :(

T-B The Bride, Frankenberry, Wolfsbane, Are You My Mummy?,  Fright Night Glitz and  Fan Girl (blush)

I love these shades and can see myself pulling them out quite often! I have a feeling The Bride will make an awesome liner and Frankenberry hasn't left my dresser since I got it because it is full of awesome. I hope you guys have a wonderful rest of your weekend.

Custom He-Man and She-Ra collection!

Awhile back I went to the lovely Holly over at Moi Minerals and asked her if she could work her magic on a He-Man and She-ra inspired set for me, much to my happiness she agreed! I had a SUPER hard time narrowing down which characters I wanted the colors modeled by as between the series there are tons of great choices. I finally settled on He-Man, She-ra, Hordak, Evil-lyn, Battle Cat, Swiftwind, Skeletor and The sorceress of Grey Skull. I am super tempted to ask her again to do some inspired by Man-at-arms, Teela, Orko and a few others, but we shall see about that. lol. I am really pleased with this collection and was happy and surprised to find she added in a tube of Hubba Hubba lip balm to the mix.Thank you Holly! ♥

I love the labels for the balms!

Such a pretty balm, sadly I forgot to do a swatch pic :(

I love the added touch of the labels!

Happy Halloween from Moi Minerals!

Moi Minerals put out their Halloween Collection recently and I snagged one up pretty much as soon as it went on sale! I really like how Holly offers a wide variety of options with her collections and this one is no exception. You can either purchase each shadow individually or in a set in full or sample sizes.

Prices in USD:
Sample size set: $ 8.00
Full Size set: $ 19.00
Single shadow deluxe sample size: $ 2.25
Single shadow in full size: $ 6.00

There were also 3 lip glosses released for Halloween that I was unable to order with the shadows, but plan on getting soon. Their names are Elvira ($3.75) , Rose Mary ($3.75) and Bloody Mary ($4.75) and come in 3.5ml gloss tubes with doe foot applicators. Once I get those I will do a post on them.

*Color descriptions are off the site and please don't mind that my pictures got out of order*

Everything together in the little bag ♥

The backs of the jars with ingredients

Clarice:Beautiful coppery wine shade that shifts blue-green-gold (certain ways the light hits it)

Zombification: Shimmery Olive gold loaded with shimmers of yellow & gold.   

I LOVE these colors and can not wait to get the glosses! Of the 4 I think Ichabod and Overlook Hotel are my favorites, but they are all wonderful. This is a wonderful collection and Holly did a great job with it, I'm glad to have these colors in my collection. ♥

I hope you all enjoyed this post and if you haven't gotten this set....DO IT!

Happy Friday and as always:

BFTE Bite Me Halloween Collection!

The other day I received the Bite Me collection from BFTE and jeepers is it lovely! You can get the set two ways, with or without a lip gloss. The set without the gloss is $25 and with it is $29, a pretty good deal for 5 full size shadows and a gloss. If you plan on getting the set, I would suggest doing it soon as there was limited quantity, you won't be disappointed! As of today I believe there are 30 sets left.

Fake vampire teeth! I forgot to get a pic of the after I took them out of the box. :/

Love this gloss, it is SO pretty on!

My favs of the bunch are Guilty Pleasures, Sinister Instincts and Dark Prince. Guilty Pleasures, Sinister Instincts and Full Moon Rising were the easiest to swatch while Dark Prince was the most difficult. Again BFTE has made me remember why I adore their products as much as I do. ♥

Happy Friday!
