It’s Been So Long!

Life just gets in the way sometimes.  Work has been insane, with people out for extended periods, and additional work on top of the absences.  Things are finally calming down, and I want to catch up here.  I have so many things to share, and so much I want to accomplish this year.  I cant believe 2015 is already 25% over!

My goal is to get back to regular blogging, but you can also follow me on Instagram at Shards_of_Illusions.

Detrivore Cosmetics

Detrivore is an indie brand that has been around for years.  You can purchase them exclusively through Shiro Cosmetics here.  Although these colors arent currently available, they are gorgeous, and a great representation of what you will find at Detrivore!

Innocent + Twisted Alchemy – January Subscription

Im so excited that the I+TA sub is back up!  There also some slots opening up, so if you’re interested, go check it out here.  You can follow on Facebook to find out when they open up!  Onto this month’s colors!

I love that this sub always has a theme, and this month’s theme is the mysteries of life.  Of course, it also came with a 35% off code for a new order.  Linda included 2 additional colors, Wintertide and Reverse Bear Trap, due to samples not arriving from other companies. All swatches are over Fergie Wet n Wild Take on the Day Eyeshadow Primer.

For the samples from other companies:

Bathhouse from Victorian Disco
People have a lot of feels about Victorian Disco, but that is neither here nor there.  This color is really pretty, and Shiro is now distributing Victorian Disco.

Copper (Cu) from Mad Lab Cosmetics
Love this color, and it applied very smoothly.

Thoughts are Stars from Beauty for the Win
This color was only OK.  It was difficult to apply, and isnt unique in my opinion.
