A Great Mail Day!

 - First off, I met a lovely girl in a community on LJ and out of the goodness of her heart she sent me these, I'm so appreciative.  And I love getting and trying new brands, specially from foreign soil.

I got 257, 278, and 261.
- And then I got my Secret Cupid (From Jebba, check out her blog!) package!!!!  I wasn't expecting it yet at all, and I certainly didn't expect it to come from overseas, I was so excited!

Here's what I got:

Kleancolors: Metallic Pink, Metallic Red, Metallic Sapphire, Metallica Fuchsia, Blue Eyed Girl and Sea Ice.
Color Club: Wild At Heart
Ultra3: Pacific Fever and Pink Supreme - First for this brand, yay!

I also got a pretty ring, nice card, candy, nail art stuff, fimo sticks, nail stickers, and a LA Colors eyeshadow quad. I almost bought a quad like this yesterday because I was curious about the baked shadows, so yay, I get to try them now, awesome.

Great Giveaway!

Head on over to Glam Polish, she's having an amazing giveaway for some Hunger Games polishes: CLICK.

Fatty's Got More Blood...

 - I tried my first Manglaze polish, I got it as a present for Christmas (as well as Mink Mittens by them), this is Fatty's Got More Blood.  And I LOVE it.   Gorgeous.

The first two photos are without flash.
 - Pretty.
 - The only thing I didn't get to do was put on a top coat yet, but all of their polishes I've seen from swatches all look amazing with a top coat as well.
- So lovely.

I'm Below Deck On The Pacific Blue...

- A lovely girl (Thanks Hailee!) I met in one of my nail polish groups I'm in, and she offered to pick me up a Barielle polish when she placed an order she knew I wanted, which was so sweet of her.  But she also sent me two other polishes, we surprised each other with a few extras, she got me Sally Hansen Pacific Blue (which she must have been stalking me in the group to know I wanted that and I'm very thankful for her stalking abilities.) and China Glaze Below Deck.  I paired those latter two here.

I am so in love with the Pacific Blue, the whole time I wore it all I could do was stare at it and think "Best blue ever".  So amazing.  And I really love Below Deck too.

Also side note, it is very rare my right hand makes an appearance on my blog, but here it is lol

Current Eyes...

- Ok, I may do a second post with more photos tomorrow, haha, I took a lot of photos, but I really liked it.
- I used:
Elf eyeshadow primer
MAC Fuschia
MAC Bronze
Almay One Coat Dial Up mascara
Avon Glazewear lip gloss in Brown Sugar  (Wasn't what I originally wore but for the second set of photos the first gloss had worn off and I just put this on for them.)

January MyGlam...

 - This is Milo with MyGlam package for January.  It was my first month getting it.  I was so excited for this, specially after seeing their December package (Their first as a company), it looked amazing.  This didn't quite live up to the hype, I liked it, don't get me wrong.  But the first bag (December) was all pretty much make up which is what I wanted but this month's wasn't.

MyGlam has had a lot of issues this month, there was some kind of a shipping error and they sent about half the bags out wrong, so a lot of girls got two bags instead of one and they could send the packages back to be sent along to the girls who had no package, but they didn't have to send them back since it wasn't their fault they got them.   A lot of girls (although they say it only affecting 1% of their customers) were informed they were getting a refund because there was now no bag to send them, although to me it looks like a lot more than 1% with how many unhappy people I see on their facebook currently.   I got an email saying my bag was delayed but I would still get one, I was so happy.   Although when I finally got it, it looked like it'd been opened and resealed, which didn't sit well with me, because you never know what could have been tampered with.   Other girls packages seem to have been opened as well, and shadows were swatched I have read (MyGlam denies this and in around about way almost seem to call one girl a liar, which I didn't like.), I also could see the other girl's name and address under my own on the package, which hmm, that doesn't seem good either, seems to be wandering into privacy territory.

I was happy to get my package, I intend to stay for next month to see how that one is, it's suppose to be Valentine's Day themed, which is exciting.

In this package I got:
Wen Cleansing Conditioner in Sweet Almond Mint. 2 oz sample.
Sheer Cover Dup Concealer in Light/Medium.  Full Size.
Freeman Cucumber Facial Peel-Off Mask.  Full Size.
Then you could either get a nail polish from TheBalm or an eyeshadow.   I got the nail polish in "The Missing Pink", it's a full sized polish.   Although it wasn't a color I'm going to use, and I really wanted the eyeshadow in Shameless Shana and I found someone who was up for a trade, which is what I'm doing.  I already sent my half of the trade.
I also got the cosmetic bag, which is super cute and I adore that they switch every month.  How awesome.

It's definitely worth the ten dollars you spend.   Specially getting three full sized products, yes, please.

- This is an outtake photo.  Milo enjoyed ruining many a photo (they're doing a giveaway if you posted photos so the first picture was my entry), specially when he realized the polish and concealer would roll nicely.  So he kept purposefully knocking them over.

I love my demon.

Eye Look Love.

 - This is the eye look I did yesterday, it's reminisint of the one I did for New Years Eve, but this time I tried to kind of foil it, it did work I thought and look really nice.

Now please ignore the fallout, I DID clean it up, but I notice if I blink really fast after doing this I had fall out just fall out.  Not good, but it didn't do that for too long, just long enough to mess with my photos.  Also wayward eyelash it wayward.
 - I used:
Elf Primer
MAC Fuchsia
MAC I can't recall which purple I used.
MAC Freshwater
Loreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes (I actually won this on their Facebook giveaway, yay!)

I wasn't wearing anything but EOS on my lips and probably should have.
Also I felt I should do eyeliner but I was worried I'd totally mess up and then be sad because I liked the shadow so much.

 - Then these photos are from my camera phone.

- haha it was entirely unintentional that my eyeshadow match my scarf but it seemed to lol

I don't normally stray to far from beauty things on my blog, but today I kind of am.
Today many sites and some bloggers are protesting SOPA.   I was reading a blogger's facebook who had taken down her entire blog in protest today, which mega props to her.   So mega props to Vintage Or Tacky and if you don't know what SOPA is if you click her page right now you'll certainly find out.

But in her comments on her Facebook someone had mentioned beauty companies supporting SOPA, then I was like wait, what?   So I googled a list of what companies support SOPA, if you'd like to see it click here but upon that list (are way too many companies first off) are Revlon, L'Oreal and Estée Lauder Companies (which includes MAC I believe).

I don't see what they even get out of supporting SOPA, money probably.

So I went off to their Facebook and left them all comments like this one:

- You may need to click it and make it bigger to read it.

Tsk tsk all you companies for supporting this, tsk tsk.
This just makes me sad.  *Sigh*

And all part of my brain can think of is this quote from "Young Frankenstein":

Inspector Kemp: A riot is an ungly thing... undt, I tink, that it is chust about time ve had vun. 

Except maybe the word riot is now replaced with boycott.

I'm attaching a link with another blogger's listing of companies that are supporting and ones that are closely related I guess would be the way to say it.  Oh please don't let all those companies support it, I may cry.

The Nailaholic.

Zoya Tru and Maisie, BFF's.

 - This is Zoya Tru with Maisie on top.  Sadly the sun really wasn't out when I was wearing this but I tried to get some good photos of it anyway.  I really loved the flakie, so gorgeous.  It was one layer of the flakie as well so it covers well.  Always a plus.  I'm not big on a sparse flakie myself.
- (Sorry if this photo is flipped, Blogger is being weird).

You can buy Tru here.   
And you can see my other swatches of it here.

You can buy Maisie here.

Zoya Skylar...

 - This is Zoya Skylar.

It's like the perfect dusky blue with shimmer.

I love it.
- You can buy it here.

New Shadows.

 - Okay I have no idea why Blogger is flipping my photos sideways, I'm not sure how to fix it, so I'm hoping it straightens out, since it's done it before.  Sorry for it though.

I'm wearing:
Elf Eyeshadow Primer
Mac Chrome Yellow
Mac Bronze
Revlon Double Twist Mascara

And I should have lipgloss but I wasn't, fail.
 - Also whoever cursed me with my one psychotic eyebrow, I curse you.  But um, does anyone see the snowflake on my eyebrow, it's the oddest looking thing.  I double check the original photo to be sure I hadn't somehow done it, wow.
 - The bronze doesn't look very bronze here, although it's a fairly dark bronze to start with.

Oh how I appreciate you non psychotic eyebrow.
- Again random sideways photo.

 - This was a package from Emma, (you should check out her blog) she hunted down for me the last two Sinful's I needed to complete my Adventure Island set - she got me Seaweed and Adventure Island.  And she sent me one of my lemmings China Glaze Traffic Jam.  And a C.O. Bigelow lipshine in Strawberries And Cream.   Awesome!
- Then I got some stuff I'd ordered.  I took advantage of Zoya's promo, two free polishes, just pay shipping.  I got Jana and Gemma (I wanted Kristen but there was a mix up, Zoya snuck an old cart in on me and as I was deleting Jana it got rid of Kristen and kept Jana.  Oh well.  My dearest Aaron also opt'd to take advantage of the promo and got it for me.).
Then I ordered "Warm And Fozzie" by OPI from Amazon, got it for 5 even which was nice.

And then a random pretty eyeshadow I ordered off ebay.

I do have more Zoya swatches to post, just haven't yet.  But I will.

Valentine Kisses Mega Giveaway.

Valentine Kisses Mega Giveaway.

Vote For Me!!!

I'm a finalist on the Adoptapolish.org on two different polishes!!!
Here's what I had to say for Crush On You:
“It doesn’t matter to me that Katy Perry didn’t endorse you, I don’t own any of the polishes she did endorse, but I want to have you come live with me.
I will take good care of you, you can sit on the very top shelf with my other crackle loved children, so you’ll have plenty of friends and a great view of the whole living room – where there is a TV and XBox 360 (although you may have to team up with the other crackles to hit all the buttons…), so please come live with me and I will love you.”
And here's what I had to say for Charleston:
“I would love Charleston Essie if I were chosen to adopt him. He would never be banished to a bin, he would have a nice home with a few other Essie polishes (two actually a lone mother and daughter – so you never know what could happen, sparks could fly and they could live happily ever after.) in a nice drawer. The drawer would be opened daily so he could have fresh air and sunlight, and there are other polishes to play with and be friends with.
I’d also wear him on my nails lovingly so that everyone I came in contact with could pause to admire him for his true beauty that I know is there and see, because you can always see a good heart. And I know Charleston Essie has a remarkable one.”

So pretty please please please vote for me!
With a cherry on top.
Or maybe just a cherry color nail polish on nails?

Liebster Award...

"Liebster is a German word, meaning dearest or beloved, but it can also mean favorite. The idea behind the Liebster Blog Award is that it is given to bloggers who have less than 200 followers in order to create new connections and bring attention to these wonderful blogs!"

The Rules are:
1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal the five blogs you have chosen and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Copy and paste the award onto your blog.
4. Request that people you have sent the award to forward it on to their favorite bloggers.

I want to thank PrnessNails for passing this onto me.

My 5 picks:

Nails Designs 

Glitter Is My Crack... 

Rebecca Likes Nails 

I'm Feeling Nail-Venturous 

I Drink Nail Polish 

Zoya Tru.

 - Sadly there was no sun to take good photos with but this was taken outside.
 - I took this where I normally had been taking photos.  And I apologize my nails are different lengths I just had a break and was just too excited to use this polish, I had already started when I realized I should have evened them lol
- Sooo pretty, I love love love this color.
- This was with the flash I wasn't entirely feeling the above did it justice, although this is too bright (and blurry but ignore that.) I feel it's somewhere between these shades maybe but probably much closer to the darker.

Next photos will be this with one of the flakies on top.

I believe you can preorder colors from this collection now, otherwise they're available the 13th I believe.

*These were sent to me for my honest review.*

Zoya True Collection Spring 2012 and Zoya Fleck Effect Collection Spring 2012.

- OMGOMGOMG Zoya sent me samples!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I squee'd and ran all over the place and then hugged them for a long time.


This may be the best day (or well it was yesterday) I've had in a long time.

Thank you Zoya.   I've already done my nails with one of the purples which I will probably post tomorrow although I don't know if I can bring myself to take it off tonight to try another yet, I may just try the flakies on top and see how that looks and then post that as well.

New Year's Eve...Or Shall I Say Eye...

 Please ignore the fall out, I swear after I did my make up I went over my undereye with make up remover and got rid of it but somehow some reappeared in photos.

This was my New Year's Eve eye make up.
I was trying a new eyeshadow brush I got off ebay, it looked nice but it broke mid use, but I think I can just reglue it and it'll be as good as new.
- I'm not on center here taking the photo but I loved the way it turned out.

Take A Peek...
