Game of Thrones Makeup Collaboration

Hello Loves!

I am so excited to post about this! I asked my MUA friend Josephine (most known as /u/juntaoren on Reddit or @juntaoren on Instagram) to do a few Game of Thrones looks with me. I really wanted to do the main houses as everyone is familiar with them and they have the most characters on the show. I can definitely say that I am obsessed with the show. I don't know how I should feel about finishing 3 seasons in a week (not consecutive days). It's SOOOOOOO utterly addicting. Guys, if you haven't watched it, you should. When you do, you will be hooked. Hooked I say.

Anyways, onto the collage!

Tutorial: Mermaid Inspired Teal Eye

Hello Loves!

I am so glad to posting a bit more often now. And by often, I mean once or hopefully twice a week. I am glad to be done with finals and moving onto my summer. Hopefully having a job will not prevent me from posting but I guess we shall see.

Today, I wanted to do a teal eye look with glitter. Upon swatching several products, I actually came up with something that turned out well!

Here is the final look.

Swatch and Haul: Little Sparrow Cosmetics

Hello Loves!

I am so excited to show you my latest indie makeup purchase! This time, I ordered from Little Sparrow Cosmetics, which is a cosmetic shop on Etsy that is owned and operated by Jessica Randolph. She makes a variety of products such as blushes, a "lip jelly," eyeshadows, and much more.

A little on the shipping, customer service, and all that jazz before the goodies.

I got my items during a sale, so everything was 15% off, but what surprised me was the shipping fee. The first item I got had a $2 shipping fee and an additional dollar with every item after that. So, if any of you, like me, do not enjoy paying larger shipping fees, just a heads up. Since I did order during a sale, it is to be expected to wait a little more time before getting the products. Her TAT mentioned on her Facebook page was 1-2 weeks. I got my items shipped out within a week and a half after the order date and received it shortly from USPS. Everything was packaged in a bubble mailer and was then enclosed in cute little bags. The products have shrink wrap with perforations as a safety seal. Only one product had damage, which was small crack on the lid.

The bags products were wrapped in

I also want to commend Jessica on her customer service. She was very prompt whenever I did email her. I would definitely say I was excited to receive her items and emailed her towards the end of week on the status of the package. She let me know when it was expected to ship and a day or two afterwards, she sent it out and emailed me when it did. Another thing, which you will soon see, is she is VERY generous with samples. I was astonished with the size. She sent me a mini blush and FULL-SIZED lip jelly. I don't know if this is standard but I am very happy with the generous samples. I don't know what samples you will receive when ordering but this is what I got.

Time for the goodies :)

Before removing safety seals
The samples are Carnation and Oh My Papaya.
