Nessasary Makeup Dupe FOTD

I was wandering around Vanessa from Nessasary Makeup blog’s last week and I came across an FOTD she did using Urban Decay’s Underground and Shag.

For the longest time I had these I never could come up with a good combo for them and her FOTD just inspired me to use both together and it came out kinda ok!

My combanation is heaps different from hers but the cocktail of the two colors is a marriage most lovely!

Thanks to Vanessa at Nessasary Makeup for the inspiration! You can visit with Vanessa by clicking here and you can see her version of this FOTD by clicking here but be warned her blog is utterly addicting and you’ll find yourself jotting down colors to use in looks later on as her combos are brill!

What I Used:

Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow in Underground
Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow in Shag
MAC Pigment in Cocomotion
MAC Pigment in Gold Stroke
MAC Pigment in Quick Frost

special vws headerSome readers had a problem purchasing from Stila’s Virtual Warehouse Sale last time I posted the link. I got a comment about it and a few e-mails asking me what was going on.

I’m here to say I have no idea.

Seriously, no clue why you couldn’t order but I’m thinking it could be because you didn’t get the actual invite and were accessing the site from my secondary link.

So…..

Solution to your problem.

Click here to sign up for the Virtual Warehouse Newsletter and you’ll recieve the invite in your e-mail when Stila puts up new sale items!

Your Muse spoils you doesn’t she?

Guest Haul: Taryn’s JPMon Order

One of the Muse’s readers, Taryn, got her first haul from JPMon a few days ago and she was very generous to share pictures of all her goodies to make us green with jealously!

Oh my pretty! Sony CP Lipgloss, Rice Powder, Tons of Mascara, Tiffa, I’m hyperventilating!

Close up shot of Apple Lip Cream (These things are like crack for the Muse! I have the peach, apple, orange, etc…totally yummie! I dunno which I love more the hand cream version or the lip cream version)!

Fairy Drops Mascara HOLY COW! I want this! NOW! How has the Muse not heard about this? I’m the Queen of Japanese Mascara but never seen anything like this! Taryn tells the Muse that this stuff is “the awesome”! Obviously it’s on my wish list right now!

Thanks so much for sharing your haul with us Taryn!

Taryn ordered all her goodies by following my little tutorial from JPmon! You can click here to view it! I feel all special now because she said I was of great help with that tutorial *sniff* *blush*

Sweet Haul Taryn!

Thanks again for sharing!

Now if you’d give us a link for the Fairy Drops Mascara we’d all be forever grateful!
