Theshespace Cindy Swatches & EOTD

Here are the swatches for yesterday's SheSpace haul. All of the colors are a bit brighter in person and very shimmery with lots of sparkles. I think I'm going to get The Golden Rule in full size, and I was thinking of getting Rapunzel's Bad Haid Day and Short On Sass in full size but like I mention below they are very similar to NYX's Deep Purple and I can't justify having 3 of almostthesame colors.

Dupes:
-Rapunzel's Bad Hair Day & Short On Sass are both very similar to NYX's Deep Purple.

Lime Green is very sheer so I prefer Dragon Breathe.

Sky Pink & Pumpkin Head don't look the same in this photo but they are very close.

Turquoise came out looking bluer in this photo but the colors are the same irl.

Cindy's Got Gumption (all over lid)
Pumpkin Head (crease)
Maybelline Great Lash mascara

Didn't think I would like CGG but it reminds me of hot chocolate and cinnamon.

Theshespace Cinderella haul!

For ref I ordered the 4th, it was send out Wednesday and arrived today (Friday). I haven't used anything yet so my opinions will come out when I do swatches tomorrow.

Out of the samples I'll probably get The Golden Rule, Sort On Sass, Repunzel's Bad Hair Day full size, and maybe the last two blues. I love the greens I got, especially Be The Fairytale.







These are from the regular collection.

What a crazy/scary day (non mu related).

Today was so crazy. I had Jury Duty for the first time, and I was stressing out about that all yesterday and today. Luckily I didn't get picked for the jury, I was praying all day not to lol. Anyhow since I was stressed I couldn't eat at all, so my blood sugar was low all day and I was feeling shaky and light headed. I got released to go home around 3:30. I finally managed to get down a PB&J sandwich at 4:30 ish, and I just was laying on my bed with the laptop at 5:30 when I got up to open my window.

I had just pushed aside the curtain and opened the window when suddenly I felt a bunch of stuff hit my back and side and somehow I was on the floor going "huh?" It took me over a full minute to realize that I had just fainted. I don't remember going down but I remember feeling the window sill and my CD player hit me although I had no clue what it was until I noticed that I was sitting on the floor leaning against my wall and door and my CD player was so close to my face. It didn't feel like I was moving, it felt like I was just getting hit. Then I had to figure out why I was on the floor when clearly moments ago I was standing up. I mean dang, the last two times (and only times) I fainted I knew it was coming, I could feel myself getting closer to the ground, feel my head pounding, and see everything getting darker, but this time I was so thrown off cause there were no warnings.

Ish, no permanent harm done. I'm just glad I did it in my room and not at the court house. That would have sucked.

On a happy note my eye shadow was super cute today. I didn't take pics because I had to leave early in the morning but I wore Fyrinnae's Polar Bear (soft sparkly gold) on the inner 2/3 of my lid and TheSheSpace's Oh Precious Patience (sparkly honey brown) on the outer 1/3 & under my eyes. Sometime I will recreate the look and post pics.

Review: Mark Kiss Therapy Lip Balm in Sheer Peach


Help condition and soothe your lips with this blend of rose extract, honey and vitamin E that adds a sheer wash of color.

Quality: 3 out of 5
Package: 4 out of 5
Size: 0.42 oz
Price: $4
Where To Buy: Avon.com or Mark.com

This Super Smoothing lip balm comes in a cute coral colored tin. You'd expect it to smell like peaches because of the name but it actually smells very strongly of roses and you can smell it while wearing it. It doesn't have any color at all, I swatched it on my arm but it was totally clear so I didn't bother taking a photo. The balm is a bit thicker and heavier then I like, but its not sticky. I don't think it does all that much in the way of moisturizing so don't get it for that purpose. I prefer apply it with a brush.

All in all, I probably wouldn't buy this again. I like the packaging but the balm doesn't do anything for me.

Pink, Purple, & Turquoise FOTD

So, maybe, possibly my skin is clearing up after 3 weeks. Haven't gotten any major new break outs in a few days, yay. I should be back to posting more. I've got a ton of reviews lined up, lots of ideas for new tutorials.

Despite my skin clearing up I have something new to complain about. This week Wet N Wild is BOGO at Walgreens, and I've been waiting months for it to be (which is stupid cause their stuff already so cheap but bogo is just more fun) and I go there today to find that the one I thing I wanted (which was a green liquid liner) was OOS. Ish.

Moving on...

Cheeks: Avon Satin Deluxe Pink Duo blush

Lips: CG wetslicks Pink Sequin

NYX chrome e/s Sunny Day (lower lid)
NYX Fucshia (crease)

Review: Jane Blushing Cheeks Blushes



Quality: 5 out of 5
Packaging: 5 out of 5
Size: .12 oz
Price: $4
Where To Buy: Walgreens, Rite Aid, Wal Mart. Almost every week at least one of those places has it BOGO too.

Lord I LOVE these blushes! For a super cheap drug store brand, Jane has sure impressed me (and many others) with these little pots of heaven! I think there are 8 shades in all, they are just $4 and incredible quality.

Blushing Earth Sheer is a hot pot of gorgeous peachy coraly goodness! I can't even begin to describe how beautiful this blush it. There is a very fine shimmer, but its not very noticable when you're wearing it. This goes on semi sheer but is buildable. I just get a lovely glow when wearing this. This is my favorite blush out of all the ones I own.

Blushing Blossom is a great soft cool pink blush. It has no shimmer. You only need a little bit to get good color. This is my 2nd favorite blush.

Blushing Petal is a great muted pink blush with a little bit of peach. There is no shimmer. Great color payoff.

Update

Hi everyone! I know that my blogging has slowed down to a crawl lately, I apologize for not having anything interesting to write about.

I'm having a weird skin issue, out of no where I started breaking out like crazy two weeks ago and my face hasn't stopped since so I don't really want to do FOTDs and videos. I can't really pin point the cause, I think it may be something I was eating or possibly the Fyrinnae Rice Primer for dry skin (I used the normal one for a long time with no problems) but I just don't know for sure.

I got a few things from Avon that I'm hoping will help, I guess I'll see in a few days. Haven't got much new make up either, trying to save money and use up things in my stash.

So thats it for now. Hopefully things will pick up soon.
