Great things come wrapped in panda paper!

Are you tired of seeing Fyrinnae hauls yet? ;)

Few things excite me more than getting new makeup ;)

I ordered all of this on May 16th(a Sunday), and it shipped on May 24th(a monday). It said on the website to expect 12-18 business days for the order to process, so Fyrinnae worked faster than I expected once again :)

For this order, I decided that I needed all of Fyrinnae's "brightest" colors!
...And a couple of other ones as well.


I'm a little sad, that I couldn't get any OPI polishes with my order.
Why? Because the online retailers can't sell OPI anymore!
Guess I won't be getting more OPI polishes ;)

I ordered all of these from 8ty8 on May 27th and they arrived today! May 31st :)

More NEON! :D

It seems like this is my first post in... Forever?
And it probably is.
I need to get back into blogging daily! :)

I'm not going to be home all weekend though, so it's not looking too good, haha! ;)

Basic Makeup: Finding the right foundation

I've gotten a lot of requests to do makeup tutorials on all the "basics" like foundation, liquid liner and things like that, and today I finally started! ;)

I can't decide if I should do a blog post about this too?
Blog posts can be longer and so I can explain everything better.
Let me know if you have any questions and I'll put all the answers in a separate blog post :)

Collective Haul: MAC, OPI, GOSH

My super sweet colleague Marie Louise went to Hamburg this past weekend and she was sweet enough to bring me a couple of things form the To The Beach collection (which isn't being released here until June 15th for whatever reason), and I'm really excited!
She also brought me an OPI polish that I'd been wanting and a nailpolish remover with a pretty interesting smell... ;)

This post is both the things Marie Louise brought me from Hamburg but also a couple of things I've picked up at MAC at home as well as a few GOSH things I just found on sale today :)

MAC To The Beach look + tutorial!

Who's excited about the MAC To The Beach collection?! :D

FOTD: Orange NEON!

I haven't touched my neon colors in forever!
I'm not super happy with the way the colors look together, but it was definitely fun to play around with them! :D
And that's the great thing about makeup! It's easy to take off if you don't like it! :)

FOTD: Prêt-à-Papier

Since the Prêt-à-Papier collection just released here last week, we still have to wear the products at work.
I always get bored pretty quickly when we have to wear certain products - especially when all the products are neutrals!

Don't get me wong. I still think the Prêt-à-Papier collection offers some great products, but I prefer to be able to wear fun bright looks to work :P

My favorite thing though: I really liked the lip combination I did! :)
I bet you can't guess what I'm wearing :P

FOTD: Velvet Vampire

I'm still really excited about Fyrinnae so here's another look with some of their products! :)

I filmed a tutorial but I'm not sure if this look is actually exciting enough to upload a tutorial for, so let me know what you think :)
Edit: I uploaded the tutorial! ;)

The tutorial for yesterday's look is up on YouTube as well :)

FOTD: Sugarpill Royal Sugar

I actually filmed a tutorial for this look, but I won't have time to edit+upload until tomorrow.

More Fyrinnae Love: Swatches!

I'm obsessing a little over all the gorgeous Fyrinnae eyeshadows - in case you hadn't noticed ;)

I'm still amazed at how big a color selection they have and how complex and unique their shadows are. They're really just gorgeous! :)

This time, I also have a swatch of one of their Lip Lustres to share. I'm really looking forward to trying it out on my lips :)

Let's get on to the swatches ;)

Pretty colors make me happy! :D

I just received another Fyrinnae order in the mail!
23 eyeshadow samples, 1 free eyeshadow sample and a mini lip lustre.
Am I excited?

When I placed my order, it said on the website to allow 20-24 business days to process the order, but I got an e-mail after just 6 days saying that my order had shipped :)

I'm going post swatches later, but for now, here's a list of what I got! :)

FOTD: Strip Poker and Bamboo Revolution

I'm still playing around with the Fyrinnae eyeshadows a lot :)

And I actually just got an e-mail the day before yesterday saying that my next Fyrinnae order is on its way! It said on the website that orders could take up to 24 business days to ship, but I placed my order on May 1st and I got the e-mail saying it had shipped on May 7th!
Hope it'll be here SOON! :)

Zoffe's favorites: April '10

As with everything else I have going on at the moment, this post is super late ;)
And, as always, I'm sorry.
But! Even though it's now May 9th, I still wanted to share my April favorites with you!

Huge MAC "haul"!

An(other) long overdue post!

This post is about all the amazing new products I got at Update last week!
I wanted to post about everything earlier but just haven't had the time.
Blogging would be so much easier if I didn't have a job (or two) I had to take care of too, haha ;)

I'm going to post pictures of everything I got from the new collections as well as sharing my thoughts on everything.
The only collection that isn't out in the US yet is the To The Beach collection, but I did get things from Prep for Colour, Liberty of London and Pret-a-Papier as well :)

Firecracker vs. Hot, Hot, Hot!

That title probably doesn't make any sense unless you know it's the names of two MAC eyeshadows ;)

Hot, Hot, Hot came out with the Spring Colour Forecast collection earlier this year and Firecracker is being released with the To The Beach collection on May 27th (US launch date).

They do look a bit alike, so I thought I'd do a comparison swatch to show you that they are, in fact, different enough to have both ;) At least if you're like me, and love colors like these, haha!

Firecracker on the left. Hot, Hot, Hot on the right.

Swatches: Fyrinnae!

For the past couple of hours, I've been cropping swatch pictures and writing this blog post.
Why did it take so long?
Because I was multi tasking! Trying to decide which colors to get in my next Fyrinnae order! ;)

For now, I bring you the swatches of the colors I got in this haul :)

FOTD: Testing Fyrinnae :D

This was just a quick FOTD to try out a couple of the Fyrinnae shadows I got :)
I also used the Pixie Epoxie (which it amazing so far), so I'm hoping I'll have time to do a review on that soon :)

Weekly Polish Post vol. 2

I really haven't had time to take pictures of my nails this week, so to make up for that, I painted all my nails different colors today, haha! :)
