Deku Scrub


 Deku scrubs! OMGZ! I have been playing Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D on my husband's 3DS and it is uber fun times. I haven't gotten out of Jabu Jabu's belly yet, but I have enjoyed what I have played so far. I decided to base my look for the day off of these little annoying mobs that shoot seeds at you in the game.


The Breakdown
Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin
Deku by Shiro Cosmetics on the lid
Acid by Shiro Cosmetics in the crease and along lower lash line
Link by Shiro Cosmetics in the outer corner and a bit up into the crease
Meowth on brow bone and inner corners
Smashbox eye liner
Buxom lash from Bare Escentuals for lashes

Zelda by Shiro on the cheeks

Ochu Monster

 
Oh hi!!! I did a look today with some peachies and greens. The color inspiration is derived from a Final Fantasy series monster, the Ochu. They can be a pain in the ass to fight, if I remember correctly, but I like their coloring! ^.^



 

The Breakdown
Zelda from Shiro cosmetics on the lid just up to the crease.
Green 'Stache by Geek Chic Cosmetics in the crease and outer corner.
Bulbasaur from Shiro Cosmetics in the outer corner.
Meowth (of course) by Shiro Cosmetics on the brow bone and inner corners.
L'oreal Carbon Black liquid liner along the upper lashline.
Smashbox Limitless eye liner along the lower lashline.
Buxom Lash for the lashes.

For cheeks I used Mew from Shiro Cosmetics. It's so lovely as a blush!

Hello my nerdies! I've been gone for a bit because I've been moving! Hurrah, I'm sure you all know how 'fun' that is. V.V Anyway, despite still having some things to unpack, I will start posting again. How have you all been? I hope everyone is well.
I should have a post later tonight, but in the meantime for your amusement here is a picture of me in my nerdy hello kitty glasses.

Linnaeus Cosmetics Swatches and New Linnaeus Cosmetics Website Coming Soon!!!

Hello darlings!!
    Today I have for you some swatches from a not yet released eye shadow collection by Linnaeus Cosmetics!!! I received 3 complimentary samples from Marin to swatch for my site and I am so stoked about these! (Of course, all opinions are my own and are honest. I'm not going to lie to you guys to get free stuff!)  Linnaeus Cosmetics is a great indie makeup company and you need to check it out!!!
You can check out my full review and swatches for this company here.
First, there are some exciting things happening with Linnaeus Cosmetics. Check out this info!


-Linnauescosmetics.com will launch July 9th
-The week leading up to July 9th is going to be loaded with giveaways and small contests each day:
- random drawings of people who “like” LC on Facebook and/or following LC on Twitter to receive samples and collections
-A contest to suggest an animal you’d like to see inspire a collection. The winner will receive the collection for free.
-A contest to submit a photo of your pet (past or present) to have a limited edition collection made based on them
-Once the site launches on July 9th, for every $10 a customer spends at LC in month of July, they will be entered into a drawing to receive one of three gift bags full of indie bath and beauty items. I’ve purchased items from One Hand Washes the Other, Dreaming Tree Soapworks, and The Morbid The Merrier for the giveaway. It’s going to be an awesome set of prizes!
-Eyeshadows will be available at my Etsy store for 20% off until the store empties.
For more details on these events, look for updates to be posted on the LC blog: http://linnaeuscosmetics.blogspot.com/

  Now onto the swatches. 


From left to right, we have Tweet, Swank, and Jounce.
Tweet is a nice bright yellow. I don't normally like yellow eye shadows but this one is awesome.
Swank is a light orange-y color... kind of like a creamsicle. Love it.
Jounce is a deep green, almost brown color. So great for a smoky look.
All of these eye shadows have a beautiful shimmer to them and nice pigmentation. I can't wait for the collection to release!!!


I hope you enjoyed this and that you check out Linnaues Cosmetics soon. It's a great indie makeup company and the owner, Marin is a sweet chic.
