a quick butterfly look

Just a short little post now. Wanted to show off my new stuff I got in a swap on the NTMS facebook.
Facebomb Cosmetics' Finglonger, and Aromaleighs' Gingko. The colors on top made me think of a butterfly for some reason. I
I'm weird.

Review: Honeycat Cosmetics, brought to you by Isthatodd.com

I signed up for isthatodd.com late last year. The idea behind it is pretty simple. Join the online messaging community and vote on member's questions, ask your own questions, etc. Each time you do this, you recieve what are called Odd Coins. Earn enough of those, and you can redeem them for delux samples of items, including makeup, bath goodies, hair accessories, and more.

I had heard talks of there being special Christmas themed deals in the Sample Shop, but never saw them :( Instead, I took some of my coins and traded them in for two things: Honeycat Cosmetics Chick of the Sea foaming bath crystals, and Honeycat Coquito Bubble Stuff (bubble bath)

I can't recall exactly what the shipping time was for these- maybe 2 weeks? Didn't really keep track of them. The goodies were waiting in my mailbox this afternoon.
Here's a look:

This is the bubble bath.  No fragrance listed, but on the back there is a mention of aloe and shea butter.
First impression: it smells awesome! Almost a gingerbread scent, which I love! The bottle is probably about 2oz, but I have 400 shower gels/ bubble bath thingys, so this is just another one to mix into the rotation. I figure it'll last me a good long while.

Here's the bath crystals. The packaging design is pretty cute, right? The only thing I'm not so sure about is that this is a non-resealable package. After reading all the info on the back, I discovered this is meant to be a one 'serving' package...maybe, maybe not...I don't tend to use a ton of stuff in my bubble baths, so I was originally thinking I'd be able to use this one pack several times. Now I'm worried it'll dry out...

The labeling on this one has a little more detail than the bubble bath, which is to be expected bc the bubble bath is soo much smaller. This container shows the net weight -4oz- as well as the retail price -$9.00- It also lists the scent- chocolate raspberry mint. YUM.

Ready to see what it looks like inside?

It...kinda reminds me of cat food XD. But the smell is insane.I don't smell the mint, but I definitely smell the chocolate raspberry. I cannot wait to try this stuff out..in fact, I might just do it today bc I'm sick as a dog, and I think a bubble bath might just do the job of relaxing me...I hope.
Also, here's a couple purty face pictures for you all. This was done the other night before heading out to our friends.

Pretty Addictions' Toxic and Blonde Bombshell mixed (btw, it was recently announced that both these shades will be discontinued soon, due to a main ingredient no longer being available. Super sad to hear that, bc I LOVE Toxic. Kas is going to try to reformulate the shade so it doesn't have to disappear forever, but you should head over to prettyaddictions.com and order the original while it's still around!

Speaking of PA, I am super anxious to get my newest goodies..I was finally able to get Tickled Mermaid, and it looks like an awesome color online, so I really cannot wait to see what it looks like on me!

Have any of you tried Honeycat or Pretty Addictions? What are your thouhgts?

just wanted to show off my newest goody

So pretty, right?

Just so everyone knows...

The lovely Wendi over at makeupzombie.net is holding a giveaway to celebrate reaching 1000 followers! She has some amazing reviews and looks from great indie companies. I strongly suggest checking her out and looking at all her pretties ^-^ One of my personal favorite posts is on the Milani Infinite eyeliners, I love the colors of them!

Pictures coming soon of Pretty Addictions and more Vixoden looks too.

This is kind of a lazy post..- pic heavy

but I figure it's better than nothing.
There are, unfortunately, times where I am able to capture a picture of the makeup I've done for the day, but then have to leave right away. By the time I get back to reviewing the pictures, I've all but forgotten everything I've used for the look. Not to mention I've switched computers twice in as many months, and my picture files look..sad. I'm in the process of redoing them, and bringing a little more organization to everything. But until that happens, I've decided to throw together a simple blog post of miscellaneous looks I've done recently. There may or may not be product information listed for all these looks, and I do apologize for that.

The blue is Ecstasy by Vixoden Cosmetics, and the purple is Mac Grape
Hot pink and blue from my Kleancolor Hawaiian palette.
 I think the green was Cryogenic by Vixoden.

uhhh..Hot Topic Hot Pink and Lime Crime Empress

Hmm...Ecstasy I think

Ecstasy and Cryogenic- I'm sure by now you can tell I love my Vixoden!

and this...this was taken just for the hell of it. I liked it, and it's my blog, so...yeah.
