Ohhh, Artfire

Over the weekend Artfire had a security breach which resulted in the leak of customers private information to other customers.  While this doesn’t seem ALL that bad, any security breach at all is an issue and Artfire doesn’t seem like they are going to own up for it and make a public announcement.  They claimed […]

NYX 12 Hour Non-Sale

Riding the coat tails of Sleek, NYX decided to throw a 12 hour sale yesterday.  Almost everything on their site was $1.20. It seems almost impossible for me to understand how any company could not expect a HUGE influx of order when they are literally slashing prices as much as 80%, more in many cases.  […]

*Insert Something Witty*

I still haven’t figure out what to call my weekly wrap up post.  In fact, I’m taking suggestions.  Anyway… This weeks was relatively quiet.  A couple of things stood out, though. Estee Lauder Double Wear I’m incredibly impressed with these foundations.  Both formulas are amazing.  I put them on in the morning and that’s it.  […]

What Message?

Yesterday I was a little disturbed to discover a YouTube channel from a ‘guru’ I’ve never seen before.  With over 80 videos posted on her channel I sat for over an hour and watched them. She’s certainly not very informed.  She used the same ‘buzz words’ to describe nearly everything, whether the term applied to […]

Being Catty

I’ve ordered a lot from Meow. As much as I hate to admit it, that is. It seems that I always have problems. About 75% of the time the cart doesn’t accept my coupon, and I have to end up emailing them after to tell them. Sometimes the cart just sort of… zonks out, so […]

Archetype Cosmetics – A Follow Up

I’ve been keeping my eye on Archetype, and from what I hear is that orders are arriving within a week of being placed.  Indeed, Jess’s order was placed and shipped within days as well, although it arrived with the DC# never having been scanned, which of course caused her to freak out that the hype […]

Funky Hair Clips – A Review

It’s not often that I buy something on Etsy and find myself disappointed.  Sometimes I’m surprised when colors are off (I have a really good eye) but it’s usually a case of photography and creative photoshopping.  I really thought I’d trained myself how to spot that sort of thing when looking at listings. I can’t […]

The Day the Earth Stood Still

In the words of Briteny Spears, “This is crazy, ya’ll.” The other day after I posted my OMGMYARCHETYPEORDERFINALLYCAME update I got a lot of comments that they had a new shipping system, more help, something something was going on, and that turn around time was just days instead of months now.  I was skeptical.  But […]

Are You Sitting Down?

You might want to. I placed another order from Archetype.  I KNOW!!  After the terrible experience and NO customer service from them, I was curious.  I was talking to Ana about things and I ended up placing a 20$ on December 20th for JUST samples.  Samples are so cheep, I got all of the colors […]

Sugarpill Follow Up

It’s been a few more days since I’ve had my order, and I’ve been using my shadows more and more. Wear I’m still just as impressed, if not more so, then when I first got them.  Yesterday I wore my reds and they stayed bright and vivid, no creasing, no fading, nothing all day.  I […]
