Share, share, thats fair

This site has a pretty impressive, or horribly disgusting, selection of extremely unhealthy food ideas. Some of these I will have to make at some point in my life, and others I don't know if I could handle... But enjoy :)

Keep me at Earth

This is why I respect Kevin, and also want to kick the shit out of him at the same time.

Ray hates me

For some reason I have a hard time comprehending the fact that he has been cutting with his diet and can't eat like my fatass does. But anyways, these are my early temptation for Fridays 'Death to Jesus Day' sweets. Out of the box, nothing worth bragging about, I just love little bite size things so I wanted to snap a quick picture... And the garnish is sliced crystallized ginger.

My sweet tooth knows no boundaries!

Trailer Park of Terror

I had my definite doubts about this movie. I don’t like to spoil plot points for myself, so I did not read up on it and only provided the little knowledge that is given in the title… It involves a trailer park and there will be some terror involved. Oh yeah, big hint if you may not know me all that well. If you are the kind of person that gives away movies or tells to much of the plot I may become physical. Not sexy physical, like the back of my hand hitting your cheek physical. Anyways… Obviously, any horror movie having to do with ‘redneck’ or ‘trailer park’ is going to have some cheese to it, and personally that is a really thin line of approval for me. So I was not expecting much from this particular film… but I was pleasantly surprised. Actually, I am going to buy this movie, and that is saying something.

Norma is a pretty girl living out her early life in a run down trailer park. All she wants is stability and love, and she has finally found this with her new boyfriend Aaron. After preparing for the local school dance (can I point out she appears to be atleast in her mid 20’s?) there is a scuffle with her waiting boyfriend and the main men of the trailer park. After a few minutes this ends in tragedy, and Aaron is pushed and impaled on the broken iron fence. In tears, Norma runs from the park and walks down the highway to get away, but she is soon approached by a sinister looking gentleman in black who has given her a gun and made ‘a deal’(aka pact with the devil) to get back at those involved in her troubles for a price…

I looked over some reviews and once again an alarming number of people disagree with me and think this movie was a wasted rental. Well fuck. Granted the plot of ‘haunting’ has been done to death, but this actually took a creative and funny turn with it. I genuinely laughed at a few parts, especially Roach(though he had a GREAT jaw bone, so I may be bias because he was alright looking for white trash haha). Also the acting was impressive for the budget, and the cinematography was really good. The angles of some of the shots were amazing and guided you through the story perfectly. And the gore? It was not CGI pumped(done in a careful moderation) and was primarily hand crafted... People just don’t respect that anymore and really should. I would hands down recommend this, and I am sure once I snag a copy I will be handing it out to a few of you locals to watch, especially you Shanda. Also, it appears to be uploaded on Youtube by the user AlterIllusion… and yes, it does appear to be unrated and is available in HQ.

Notice a delay in my entries? Well I have been a bit pre-occupied in general, but specifically I have been out of state for the last couple of weeks. I took a needed vacation to visit family and also have a nice introduction to my new beautiful niece. All was well and very entertaining. Primarily spent time with my two older brothers, and then a little time out in the country side to see my grandparents and also mother. My oldest brother is a shopper, so we went by a few record shops and played Rock Band like crazy haha. I think my biggest score is the soundtrack for Trick or Treat on vinyl though, as well as Clockwork Orange. But on the polar side, while in the country my allergies hit me with full force and I was stuck indoors for the most part, but got to meet the Dahmer look alike neighbor Carl who likes to spend his evenings cutting through the night sky with his chainsaw in a psychotic frenzy, especially when he wants to piss off his neighbors. No joke, I even witnessed the action and fell asleep to the comforting buzz on my last night. Also found out my great grandfather there has a complete slaughter shed for butchering local game. Next time I am there I will definitely be doing a photo shoot in memory of Gein. Also, my mother took me out to the gut dump site, which stunk to hell but made some great pictures thanks to the rotting pigs and arrangements of bones… Wonder what the luggage department at the airline thought when they inspected my bags and found spinals cords haha.

But I managed to get sick thanks to all the kids and their friendly little germs, and at this time also a fucking cripple thanks to my ditzy ass tripping over my luggage.. So I am signing off!

Collection Complete

Pet lover Anita has setup a surprise party for her newly retired husband Jonas, but as soon as he steps through the door the reality of retirement hits him and he looses interest in celebrating. Jonas does not feel like he is ready to live out the rest of his brief life around the house with little to keep him occupied, especially since he is not used to being around his odd ball wife and her many adopted pets. After a few days roll by, things only get worse and he starts to loose his grip on sanity.. but he is not the only one having a hard time with the changes.

There is really no gore in this film, but that is acceptable considering the morbid story makes up for the loss. Though I will note there is a brief ending filled with amusing special effects. Entertaining and definitely worth some time.

Natalie Suleman

Wow... I just want to put in my few cents since this is becoming a rapid story. I watched a brief interview and she clearly stated that she was lonely and made the decision to have an arranged pregnancy since she was unable to hold stable relationships and have another child of her own. When she found out that she was pregnant with octuplets she was pleasantly surprised, as if she is a stray bitch in heat and about to have a litter of puppies, rather than logically discussing an alternative to this situation. It is not like this is a woman in a long term relationship with failing pregnancies wanting a large family, she is a deranged hag having a hard time financially caring for her ALREADY 6 fucking kids when she made this decision to pop out 8 more for her sitter to watch.... So, this clown car twat is soaking up assistance from tax payers because she was 'lonely'. She had 6 fucking kids to start with... SIX! This is already an abnormally big family in my opinion. Also, half of them are mentally disabled(BIG SURPRISE!), so the chances are ridiculously high for these premature babies to have health problems.

Wow, you will pick up all the guys now

Somebody needs to get these kids away from this nut and adopt them out unless they die premature, and give her a fucking tubal ligation. Or, I can fucking rip out her ovaries if they want to take a cheaper route, since she is sucking up everyone's money anyways.

Jack Brooks Monster Slayer

As a small child Jack watched in utter fear as his perfect parents and kid sister are unexpectedly attacked and killed by a monster while on their yearly camping trip. Now Jack is facing anguish and guilt from the traumatizing experience, and has to work with his explosive temper. With this burden in mind, Jack is also trying to balance work as a plumber, a bitch for a girlfriend, and night classes at a local college. Though his life is soon to change. After a class, his professor (Robert Englund) asks if he would be kind enough to take a look at his pipes as he is having some issues with a house he is renovating. Ofcourse, Jack takes a trip by the house that evening. While working on the issue, the pressure from clogged pipes expands to the back yard and an illuminating crack begins to show through the lawn. Soon a dark presence is released and Jack is again faced with his fear of monsters.

I really liked this movie and will probably even consider getting myself a copy. This was not as monster filled as I worried. For me, monsters usually mean cheese, and I can only handle so much.. so I try and steer clear... but I decided to give it a chance and I am very happy that I did. This was an entertaining plot and well put together in my opinion. A needed refresh from all the remakes currently circulating our theaters. This was a bit weak on realistic gore, as all the gore in the film was green and such to fit the 'monster' category... but it was obviously put together with love by the fx crew so it has just as much respect from me, even if I prefer realism. Also, they gave me perverted screen shots haha.

One thing I want to ask though, what in the fuck is wrong with people? I did a quick look over on IMDB and My Name is Bruce is almost hitting 10 and this movie is down in the 6 range with an assortment of bad reviews. Are you kidding me? This movie was the only thing that kept me from falling into a vegetable state after watching My Name is Bruce. This movie had some fun special effects, and had a very funny script and with well selected actors(except for the supposedly 'hot' chicks). The lead as Jack cracked me up, and Robert Englund was obviously a handful... Seriously..

Give me some sugar, baby

I originally heard about My Name is Bruce some time ago as a friend of mine told me it was having a limited local preview. After picking through more information, we found out to our excitement that it was being introduced my Bruce Campbell himself, but it was happening over the coming weekend... In case you haven't picked up yet, that means that if you didn't have a ticket already then you are out of luck because it was obviously sold out. I don't think I am exaggerating when I say that there is a ridiculous amount of Bruce fans here in Portland, let alone the Northwest area.

Flash forward to now. Netflix finally mailed me the movie. I was so excited I am surprised I didn't chew on the Blu-Ray disc. After about 10 minutes into the movie, I felt my stomach knot... After all this anticipation, Bruce threw out a cheesy tongue and cheek. Obviously within his style, but he could have done a LOT better than a few low laughs. Do I still respect my sugar? You bet your ass! But I won't be running out to get this movie, but I am sure there is a line of his fans that will so I am sure he will make a few off of it.

For those of you that are not aware..
Story is of a young man named Jeff that accidentally releases the Asian spirit Guan-Di when having a get together with his friends at the towns old mining cemetery. This vengeful spirit kills his friends within minutes, and begins to terrorize the town. Surviving the incident, Jeff turns to his idolized hero Bruce Campbell to save the town. Little does this kid understand, Bruce is not a gun wielding Ash like portrayed in the movies, so everyone is in for a rough battle against Guan-Di.

Lets go over my traditional now. I won't be buying this, and this movie seems to be either hot or cold with people... so it is a partial recommendation, atleast that is the best way I could recommend it. If this is a quick Netflix rental, or a friend of yours grabbed a copy from a local video shop, give it your time and see what you think. Some people really like it, as this was an added recommendation from a friend of Rays.. but then again my friend Shanda who usually has some questionable taste was on my side that it wasn't worth the wait. So don't buy into a side and just see for yourself. But as for my side, I also want to point out that the gore was also a let down. There was really no selection for morbid taste, mainly the same 'off with his head' shots and that was it for the movie... and that is it for my review

Ah yes...

I had this video posted a few months ago on another profile, but I love this song so much that I have to move it on over...

Tales From the Crypt Presents:

Dead Wait

Directed by Tobe Hooper this is the story of Red (I want to point out that only Kimberly makes a good ginger!), who is set to smuggle a rare black pearl being held on a small Jamaican Island. The owner of the pearl is an aging man that owns a plantation, so Red decides to get hired by the man to get closer to his precious piece. After reviewing things, it is decided by Red that he should get to the pearl through the owners unfaithful girlfriend, Catrine. After a night of affair with the mistress, Red wakes determined to get to the pearl, but little does he know that he is not the only one with plans.

Off with the gingers head!

This is not really the kind of movie that would usually interest me, at least plot wise, but surprisingly it kept me fairly involved and I did enjoy the short. The gore was great, and very entertaining.

Brass Hearses

Tales From the Crypt presents ‘People Who Live in Brass Hearses

Story of misfit brothers Billy and Virgil. Billy was recently in prison for the past year on accusations that he stole money from the Ice Cream warehouse that he worked at, and now that he is out he is convincing his brother Virgil that they need to get back at the company and rip off the department. After making relatively solid plans, they start on their mission the following day, but it starts bad and ends worse.

First off, let me point out that this features an actor that always put a smile on my face. In a good creepy way he is attractive, and he usually plays odd fucked up parts… Two words… Brad Dourif. This episode was impressive for being a short made for TV, and is actually now a favorite of mine from the series. The plot was pretty good, acting was OBVIOUSLY good, and the gore was exceptional! If you haven't seen this, do so immediately!

I love the Gibb brothers... and Travolta


I was surfing some blogs this morning and came across the best drink I think I have ever seen. Seriously! I now wish I had social gatherings because this would be AMAZING to serve to guest!

• 1 ounce Finlandia Vodka
• 1 ounce Chambord
• 3 ounces Pomegranate Juice
• squeeze of lime
Directions: Shake and serve on the rocks.

• canned lychee in syrup, drained
• raspberry (or other red-colored) preserves
• blueberry
Directions: Dry lychee & fill cavity with red preserves. Insert Blueberry, blossom end facing out. Spear with a toothpick or cocktail skewer. Gross!

"You Have No Heart..."

I spent last night writing out updates for my blog since I have been horribly behind. This fortunately meant smoking my Luxury Light Capri's and having a glass of Pinot Noir while sorting and watching a selection of horror. Haha, I felt like a catty snob from Dynasty. Perfect night if you ask me..

I have been reviewing a few of the Tales From the Crypt VHS's I recently scored at a local thrift store. This episode Seance is of a con artist couple, Alison and Benny, as they chase a widows fortune by playing her spiritual adviser, hoping to mimic her late husband and convince her to give them her money. While trying to act out the seance, things go horribly wrong...

Decent and had a nice turn for the worse, but rather cheesy and overplayed with the one liner ending. Gore was a bit amateur, but still good, especially since this was aired as late night tv. I honestly wouldn't pay for this episode alone, but thankfully the trio it is included on is well worth a few bucks to have in a collection.

The Dardos Award

The Dardos Award is given for recognition of cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing. These stamps were created with the intention of promoting fraternization between bloggers, a way of showing affection and gratitude for work that adds value to the Web.


A long while ago I stumbled on this blog when searching for some decent horror review sites. Needless to say, I fell in love with it at first read and kept daily tabs. Attempted to get to know the writing man himself, Big Wop, and after a bit of time we finally started talking and hit it off, and now he has me on here as well. This guy has valid opinions, detailed reviews, and a great sense of humor... Also, if you read back you will see a glorious little shot of him with mah Tom Savini. I think Ray and I need to pack up and head East to be near my people.

The Wop-iverse

What? Oh yes... B.W is so important that I have to mention the man twice! This is his slightly more personal blog, and still just as entertaining to read. Without doubt my favorite little shaven head guy.

Happiness is ideal, it is the work of the imagination

This blog is hosted by a woman I have talked with for years, and I love her to pieces. You will see a selection of makeup reviews and suggestions, as well as Gothic clothing and miscellaneous items such as out of print magazines.

The Candy Blog

This is my porn.

The Nail Queen

This blog simply blows me away... The nails done are a complete work of art, and I have spent a great amount of time just admiring. Also the shape used for the nails is to die for!

3D in 2009

Before spending the unfortunate time and money to see Valkyrie, a movie was previewed that caught my attention for both bad and good reasons. Any horror fan will probably have th same thoughts when I say the title My Bloody Valentine 3D... "Bastards remaking ANOTHER classic"... "Ooh, but 3D sounds nice"...

Well after days of whining I finally convinced Ray that we had to go and I will even pay... and as far as I am concerned BW owes me $20 haha! We got there atleast 15mins early to hopefully ensure good seats, and it should have been a red flag when the theater was empty and by the introduction statement "Please put on your 3D glasses now" there were only eleven people, including myself and Raymond.

First impression is the movie had a horrible flow and immediately jumped into action. No suspense, no needed buildup, but a mining pick threw the back of a kids head with a CGI animated 'eyeball' impaled on the tip. Fun to watch thanks to our overpriced snazzy single use glasses, but bad for a movie.

After this meaningless introduction of gore thanks to disposable teenagers, the scene closes with a group of fleeing survivors running to their truck outside the mine, making the decision to leave behind a fallen friend at the entrance. This kid Tom lives to see another day though because a group of parents are on the killers tracks and have a shooting showdown.

Years later Tom returns back to his feared hometown to sell the mines owned by his late father. While meeting with old friends and dealing with the mines, murder starts up again in the town leaving them to think that the killer has returned from the grave or a copy cat is in action.

Again, this had a horrible flow. The plus side with this movie is it actually had a good idea to refresh the original, but it seems like it got in the wrong hands. The acting was bad, but I will say that they had a weak script to work from. This is an obvious example of a pushed out movie that was only geared to make theatrical benefit without caring for a lasting impression. This is unfortunate because it had potential to be something really good but will make a horrible rental and I question the judgment of any individual that would consider purchasing it from their personal collection. Also, to rub some salt on the wound the gore was repetitive or fully computer animated... both are big no-no's in my book.

Im waiting for your review BW... waiting...

The Attic

This is a total chick thriller, and I loved every minute of it. Beautiful and well dressed actress Carrie Snodgress took the lead role as Louise, the aging and troubled local town woman. Nineteen years prior to the point in the movie, her soon to be husband went missing on their wedding day. Some speculate he got cold feet, but Louise did not doubt their love and was sure there may be a more tragic explanation.

Because this haunts Lou, she has become an alcoholic and is now facing early 'retirement' from her job as a librarian due to a previous mental breakdown at work. Aside from these hard to cope with issues, she also is at the will of her abusive handicap father who undermines her daily and is over controlling. This has left Louise without much for a social outlet and held her to the home to suffer in her own flowing insanity.

Over the next hour you watch the story play out and unfortunately an ending that is expected. Because the film is rather straight to the point, I can't rave, but I will admire. Louise's acting was so dramatic, so classic. The soundtrack was simple but worked with the movie, and is still lingering in my head.

I would recommend this for a lady feeling emotion. Great flick for those surviving the 6 day bleed and want something to cry about.

Even more behind than usual. I did manage to get pictures of swatches, but I didn't get around to making an official blog. I should be receiving my needed computer parts tomorrow afternoon so soon I will be back on track and on my own familiar system.

Though there was an accomplishment tonight. I made raviolis with partial wheat dough and a basic cheese filling since Ray is so picky anymore. This was my first time making them on my own, not to mention I was racing against the clock to have dinner done, so I didn't really get any pictures but did snap a quick one after rolling out(this method is a lot better then freehand!). If anybody is interested in the recipe let me know, I would list it now but I am getting a headache :(

Put't in mah mawth!

Yay, I went on a sugar craze this morning and finally did a recipe I had been wanting to for years considering it is almost useless to get in the states unless you want to pay extra for it being internationally stocked or get it from a fine candy store. I made honeycombs and did half of my amount dipped in milk chocolate -=angels singing in the background as they string their harps=-... but most importantly, I want to share the love and make sure everyone else makes them as well! Downside though is this candy should be consumed within about a 24hr period because it gathers moisture, which makes it very chewy and that uncomfortable stick to your teeth 'no no'. Usually this isn't a downside, but my love Raymond won't eat sweets anymore so any dessert I make is dependent on me to consume haha.

This recipe is fairly small, and you will notice that I have odd measurements so you can double the recipe for practical use or work with it as I did.

Dipped in chocolate (you can tell in the middle piece that the chocolate overheated, its okay.. I enjoyed it regardless haha)

Texture closeup

1/8 cup Honey
1/4 cup Light Corn Syrup
1 Cup White Sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/8 cup water

First off is preparation, carefully line an 8x8 pan with aluminum foil and be sure to gently press all edges so that the appearance is fairly smooth(otherwise the candy will get between the cracks and become difficult to peel away). Next gently sift the baking soda into a small bowl and set it aside near the area you will be working in for convenience. If you have a candy thermometer, it can be very helpful though I was able to successfully make this treat without(though I will admit my first batch was a dud). Also keep in mind that this will generally triple in size once the baking soda is added, so use a pot a little larger then you would think, and it is very helpful if it has a long handle for the pouring stage as it will require you to work quickly with a boiling mixture that can cause severe burns if mishandled.

Over medium heat combine the honey, syrup, sugar, and water until the sugar has mostly dissolved. Do not stir vigorously as you want to avoid a lot of side splatter so that the sugar does not crystallize along the edges. At this point, stop stirring the mixture and allow in to gradually boil until softly past a light amber stage. If you have a Thermometer I believe this should be just before 300d. Remove from heat and pour in the baking soda and rock the pot to help incorporate the soda, or you can use a wooden spoon if preferred. Only stroke this several times and then immediately pour into your lined pan and allow to cool.

Once this has cooled you can lift the foil with candy from the dish and slowly peel the foil off to discard. For controlling reasons because this will crumble when divided, take a long piece of plastic wrap and loosely fold it over the honeycomb so that you can gently break pieces with the force of your palm, or with a quick palm strike with a knife to get about 1-2" amounts.

At this point you can enjoy the honeycomb, or dip it into your choice of chocolate for decadence. Remember that if you do enjoy chocolate(which I HIGHLY suggest!) that you can dump any left over crumbs into your remaining chocolate and they are also spectacular with no waste!

Mineral Cosmetic Overview

After my last review I have been dying to update with a new post on the rest of my favorite makeup. I covered most of my mineral cosmetics, though as you have read I have 3 more orders on the way from Archetype since I am SO impressed! Also, you will notice that I reposted the same Archetype colors because I was able to adjust my camera settings and now the color is close to true without the use of fine tuning on my photo shop program... which means a bit more dimension.

Let me note that my color reviews is for the appearance on my skin tone. There is review and comparison to the listed colors on the site, but these are my take on the colors as shown with pictured swatches. I purposefully include in each photo the color in and out of focus in attempt to show dimension. These are taken on the inside of my arm, but you will notice some differences with texture due to different areas on my arm. Some glitter also drifts in store when made or when sampled, so if you see a few misbehaved specks please work with me :) Also, prices are from site and are only for Eye Shadow, these sites also feature foundation, blush, lip products, and other great cosmetics!

I am also including a coverage with the eyeshadow as I know many women have particular preferences. I personally prefer sheer colors, where as my close friend prefers deep intensity. I have a letter to represent a general idea with each category of coverage.

A: This is a blendable and easy to build. Works perfect as a sheer highlight, but can easily be applied with a heavy hand.

B: This color is best sheer. This does not build well and become uneven if heavily applied.

C: This color is intended for intensity and may be best applied wet. Sheer coverage is near impossible as the color tends to begin uneven.

Fyrinnae Cosmetics
Great customer service and dimensional colors!
Sample Size: $1.50 (Generous 1/4t comes in 3 gram)
Full Size: $5.25 (Heavily packed in 5 gram)

Polar Bear: Great for an intense hightlight for the brow, especially for a bronzed summer look. This color is a sheer gold with a very subtle shimmer pickup of soft peach. You will notice my skin shade as a background to the color, only the top gold is the shadow lightly applied. A

Selkie Skin: This is a nice color that would work an almost anybody as it has a very versatile appearance. In container this is a soft taupe, but when applied it becomes a a very deep gray based taupe with silver shimmer with tint of light green and peach glitter for dimension. A and C If lightly applied you will have a nice silver shimmer, but if you get heavy in any area it will have an deep gray taupe background. So if carefully done this is actually beneficial.

But I Like Frogs: Color is intense and not for the faint at heart! This is a rich blue with a heavy cover of green glitter. A

Wicked: Lovely color and not as intense as it seems in jar! Color is a sheer deep but vibrant purple with turquoise glitter. B

Ultrasuede: Intense matte chocolate brown, almost black. Blends fairly well, and works as a wonderful eyebrow shadow for Brunette to Black. C

Okapi: This is another fairly dark color, so it would be recommended for those looking for intensity with dimension. Color is a darkened velvet plum with gold and peach glitter. C

Sluagh: This color makes a gorgeous depth in the crease! A beatiful muted raisin color with gold glitter and peach shimmer. A

Anaconda: Very deep matte green, almost a muted black. Blends fairly well. C

Aroma Leigh Cosmetics

Great site to check as they are usually having discount sales!
Sample Size: $1.30 (About 1/16t in bag)
Full Size: $5.75-$8.00 (These come in 5 gram)

Marigold: This is my favorite color as a highlight. Color is a sheer peach wash with a subtle gold and peach shimmer. Works beautifully with almost any other color. My skin color can lightly be seen as a background with this sheer color. A

Blue Hue: Very interesting color and definitely for an outgoing lady as a highlight as it kind of reminds me of a cyber look. In jar it is white, but when applied it because a sheer white wash with a vibrant blue shimmer. You will notice my skin as the background to the sheer color. A

Underworld: Very dimensional color and is another favorite of mine. This is a rich raisin color with a soft pink sheen of shimmer and blue glitter. A

Rockbottom: This color is closer to a red touched brown so it is very versatile, and it has a touch of copper shimmer. A

Sabine: As I would incorrectly say, this is from the 'Betty Nor' collection ;P This is a rich velvety chocolate brown with soft gold shimmer and complimentary purple glitter. C

Earthen Sage: Amazing duo color eye shadow. Base color is a softened terra cotta with an even layer or green shimmer. A

Holy Grail: This is a very nice neatural for us tame ladies! Background color tends to reach an intensity of deep olive while there is an even layer of subtle gold shimmer. This is actually a mix of A and C. If lightly applied you will have a nice golden olive shimmer, but if you get heavy in any area it will have an olive background. So if carefully done, as seen in my previous post, this is actually beneficial.

Graphite: A deep matte gray with blue undertones. Unfortunately I want to point out this does not blend well and is not the most flattering, but on a positive note this would make a great pigment to use for death with fx. C

Archetype Cosmetics
Little slow on shipping, but worth it!
Sample Size: $0.25 (Low price for 1/8t in bag)
Small Size: $3.75 (General amount in 5 gram)

Death's Head: Another great neautral but this time with an extra touch of glitter. Very nice chocolate brown with green and gold glitter. A

Samhain Eve: This is a very flattering taupe with a muted lavender touch with silver sparkle. A

Beetlewing: This base is also a taupe but leaning to the blue touched grey side with an intense sparkle in green and silver.A

SheSpace Cosmetics
Varied selection of colors with lots of glitter
Sample Size: $0.50 (About 1/8t in bag)

Aroma Leigh Day!

I have a few job applications to drop off, so I wanted to look a pinch above normal, but not overdone, so I decided to whip out an eye shadow duo that looks divine. As usual, it was impossible to capture the dimension of the shadow so the pictures are a bit dull in comparison to how it actually looks.

With my eyes I put Marigold over the entire lid to my brow, and then Holy Grail heavily applied to my crease and then softly blended up towards my brow as well as down to my lashline. If applied with a heavy hand, the Holy Grail has a deep olive background with a golden glitter as you can see with the crease... It took me a while to get a good application down with this shadow, but I love how it looks like I am wearing more then I actually am! My eyebrows I used the left over liner from each side, and then blend it with a clear mascara so it appears more natural and blends with the hair. My eyebrows are a nightmare though because I have a calic on my inner left brow(also have a nice calic at my widows peak so my hair is impossible to style when up). My lips I did a basic outline in Mauve and then did a sheer coat in Zest. About my picture.. Yeah I know... I am not making any faces, heavily made up, or covered in blood and gore.. this is probably the plainest I have ever photographed and I am not sure if I like it haha

Bare Minerals Foundation in Light
NYX Lip Liner in Mauve
Aroma Leigh Lip Gloss in Zest
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Aroma Leigh Frost in Marigold
Aroma Leigh Hue in Holy Grail
MAC Fluidline in Black Track (also used on eyebrows)
Cover Girl Super Thick Lash in Black
Cover Girl Clear Mascara
