Something that I don't do often.

I don't usually post the things that I wear, but maybe I'll start. [:

I don't have the best fashion sense, but I like what I wear and I wear what I like. ;]

Just a random, quick post for funsies. 

Oh, oh! I was featured on Meredith Jessica's blog(<--- click) as March's blogger of the month! Go look and follow her! She's so sweeeeet.

Thursday, February 16, 2012 Haul.

Hello, everyone. I have been eyeing the website for a few months now, debating on what to order and waiting to get off of my "no-buy" so I could check them out. I finally ordered this past Monday and can honestly say that I'm very happy that I did.'s name says it all. They sell a variety of cosmetics from high end and drug store brands at typically discounted prices. This website has a policy of free shipping over $75, so I, being the sucker that I am for free shipping and having a few extra dollars to spend on myself, ordered just over that amount. I found Urban Decay Deluxe Shadow Box with Primer for $27.00 compared to the retail of $38.00. I also found mini Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencils for $5-$10 which is an awesome deal if you want to try them out. Oh, oh and Too Faced Shadow Insurance for $16.00 rather than $18.00

Once I was just under the $75 limit, I was looking for something to push me over. I found Maybelline XXL Pro Eye Studio Volume Mascara in Very Black for $5.00 rather than the retail of $10.50. I personally like this mascara. One of the better ones I've tried. 

No Mascara

The first step: white "microfiber" coat.

The second step: actual mascara. One coat.

Here, I added a third coat. As I said, I like this mascara. It doesn't do anything extremely dramatic, but it gave my lashes some pretty decent volume. Not to mention, it was only five dollars, so I can't complain. [:

Anyways, I ordered on Monday and received my order on Thursday. I believe they're in WA, but I could very well be wrong. >.< Super fast shipping. Priority mail. Everything I ordered was present and everything was bubble wrapped tightly in order to prevent makeup injury. ;]

Everything was just as expected. I really enjoyed my experience with this company and would recommend them to friends and family.

I did a look with some of the products I ordered. This is not everything, just a few things I choose to use for this look. [:

Urban Decay Deluxe Shadow Box, Mini 24/7 Pencil in Radium and Eye Pencil in Honey.
XXL Pro Eye Studio Volume Mascara(very black)
Stila Liquid Eyeliner - Black.
Sorry for the blurry picture. My camera died. Taken from my phone. Mascara, Book of Shadows, Eyeliners. [:

And here's the look! [: 

I LOVE the way "Honey" looks above the eyeliner. I definitely recommend this pencil.

Again, my camera was dead. So these were from my cell phone. [: Go check out!

As for the Stila Liquid Eyeliner-- it's awful. Even at a discount of $9.00(originally  $18.00), I wouldn't recommend it. It's extremely difficult to work with, it's hard to layer and I had to go over it with black eyeshadow to make it look presentable. Do not do not do not purchase it! Please! Save your money. [:

I'll make a post for the rest of my products asap. [;

Man, I missed doing this. :P

Simply Gothic.

This is just kind of a basic, black, dark lipstick look. This is really typical, daily look for me. I switched it up a bit and added blue eyeshadow as eyeliner. 

Simple black sweater and jeans. Usual outfit. Messy bathroom, thanks to the pumpkin' butt/godzilla child of mine. ;]

My front screen camera fails. The colors are a little off, sorry.

At this point, I'm just playing with photos. 

That's all, doves. Just a silly camera phone post.

Let me know in the comments!

I failed.

I'm sorry, but I'm not doing to scheduled makeup anymore! I failed at keeping up and I wasn't happy with hardly any of the looks that I came up with. :/ It was fun for the first few days, then I just got bored. Haha.

Anyway, today I dipped into Sugarpill and NYX for my eyeshadow. [:

Sometimes I feel like the Hulk.

My wonderful sister(her blog) showed up at Bonesy's birthday party with red eyebrows and I was immediately jealous. So, holding true to my Nerdenity and experimenting at the same time, I did a Hulk look with purple brows. :P

Purple "Vampy" look.

I had a tutorial for this look, but I seem to have misplaced it somewhere. :/ I can't remember the products used, either. ]: I KNOW I used:
Coastal Scents 88 Palette, 
Sugarpill's Poison Plum, 
A Matte black eyeshadow(NYX or Maybelline, probably) 
 a mix of Wet 'n' Wild/Covergirl(Embrace)/Maybelline lipsticks, 
Cover Girl Black Eyeliner 
and Lash Blast Mascara. 

I feel like I'm forgetting some products, though. :/

Sour Apple and A Gorgeous Girl's New Dress.

Sorry for disappearing, again. Work, school, miss Bones; the usual. [: 

Anyway.. The other day when I walked in the door from work, there was a lovely surprise makeup package from Kaitlyn at Sweet Treat Cosmetics on the counter. Usually she tells me when she is sending me things, but this time she was sneaky about it!! The package contained two new eyeshadows and a sample of Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy, which I have been dying to try. I'm lacking pictures of the products, unfortunately. BUT, I DO have a picture of a look I did using one of the eyeshadows(Sour Apple). [:

I love this color. It reminds me of Sugarpill's Absinthe from what I have seen. Speaking of Sugarpill, Poison Plum made a cameo appearance on my waterline. [: I cannot wait to try the other color which I will not mention to name of. :D

Next, I would like to talk about Little Miss Bones! She is going to be one year old in FOUR days!! I've been posting about it on FB like crazy! ANYWAY.. I was sitting on the couch yesterday, being lazy, and my sister brings me a box from the mail. Confused, I look at it and see that it's from Kaitlyn! She was sneaky, again!!! Two packages in one week! Curious to see what makeup was inside, I opened the box to find the cutest little Bonesy sized dress I have ever seen!!! Sewn by Kaitlyn! AND one of the most precious cards I have ever received. My eyes were all watery. It was so sweet. I love her. <3

I couldn't wait to put it on her, so I threw it on over her jammies and she danced on the coffee table in it! It fits perfectly and we both adore it!

Thank you Kaitlyn!!!! <3 Bones and I love you!
