Muse Minerals – A Review

Ordering I found Muse via Heartsy.  Although I don’t check it everyday, when I did log in not only did I have 10$ in credit, but Muse was being featured.  I quickly polled some people and decided to try them out.  The voucher gave me 31$ to work with, so I took my time and […]

by String Theory – A Review

Ordering A completely random search (for ‘blood’, I think) turned up this shop.  I was instantly sucked in by the geeky theme and the amazing sparkle.  I’m like a magpie that way.  The pictures were nice and clear and included the polish actually on nails, which is a major plus for me.  Each listing includes […]

Book of Shadows – A Review

Ordering I caught the link to the Book of Shadows shop on my Twitter feed, thanks to Tempestina. The pictures were very clear as were the descriptions I was pretty confident in ordering.  I also surfed through their feedback (a must these days) and didn’t see anything alarming. I ordered : Halloween Makeup Eyeshadow Palette […]

My Pretty Zombie – A Mini Review

Ordering After reading about this on Manda’s blog, I ran over to MPZ’s Etsy shop to order it.  I wasn’t planning on getting anything else, but I browsed.  I admit, I’ve skipped over the shop a few times because I wasn’t all that impressed.  Some of the swatch pictures were not all that clear.  I’ve […]

This song is perpetually stuck in my head when I think of this perfume.  Now it shall be stuck in yours. This is the review, of Wiggle’s perfume, Sparrow, a perfume so lovely to wear and to smell. Some notes of spice and something burning.  I love it so much, as if you could not […]

Tonic Cosmetics – A Review

Ordering I ran across Tonic after they offered a Hearty voucher.  I liked the idea of a pressed shadow palette so I gleefully took my voucher over and shopped. The listings weren’t bad.  They contained a picture of the product and in the case of the shadows, at least a swatch of the color, sometimes […]

Pink Dotted Owl – A Review

Ordering Pink Dotted Owl is a shop I found via Heartsy.  I think the voucher ended up being free, which makes reviews even harder to do.  Ugh.  Anyway… The shop looked amazing.  I clicked over and immediately found a dozen things I wanted to try and had no problems using up the voucher.  The listings […]

Mae Minerals – A Review

Ordering I found Mae Minerals through the power of Heartsy.  This was pre-rules Heartsy, though, when I saw something I liked and bought a voucher willy-nilly like.  I bought the voucher and headed over to the shop to find out nothing seemed to be in stock and the site seemed… half finished.  Like the listings […]

Ulta-mate Experience

This past weekend I braved Carmageddon to head north.  On the way back I literally said to myself, “I deserve an award for surviving that.”  I decided to track down the closest Ulta instead. Walking in I was surprised.  I really don’t browse the site at all, I’ve only ever ordered twice.  The first was […]

Exposed Organics – A Review

Ordering I discovered the Exposed Organics shop via Heartsy.  Honestly, I almost didn’t get the voucher.  Not only was the shop new (it opened on June 17th) , but there didn’t seem to be anything in it that appealed to me.  In the end, I placed an order, every shop deserves a chance. The listings […]
