Archetype Cosmetics Swatches

A few months ago when I was discovering pigmented eyeshadows, I came across this company called Archetype Cosmetics.  I was blown away to discover that samples were only 25 cents each.  And even more excited to see that she is based in Snohomish, WA!  I read a lot of reviews and I was very hesitant to order seeing as people would place their orders and not see them for at least 6 weeks.  Well, last week I decided to stop by their website to see if there was anything new.  It looked like she had done a lot of updating and shipping was only a one week turnaround.  So I placed an order for a bunch of samples.  I got my package in 1 week... YAY!  These colors are so beautiful and exciting.  I think I will be ordering more here in the next couple weeks.  Here is what I got!:

I hope you enjoyed these swatches!  I will try to post some FOTD's using them!

Playing With my Brown Eyes

I've been trying to find colors and looks that are good for my eye color.  My eyes are brown, but they are a weird shade.  Kind of a honey color but sometimes they turn green.  So day I decided to play more with orange and brown.  I really liked the look.  Loved my lips as well!!

Aphrodite Screams
Whimsical Destiny
Beyond Convention
All for Fabulous
Sunflowers and Sugar

Lips: Wet n Wild 521A

Thanks for looking, hope you liked it!

St. Patty's Day

Of course I had to wear some green for St. Patricks Day.  I wore a funny shirt I got from Target that had a 4 leaf clover and rainbow suspenders stamped on it.  Around 3pm my friend called and asked if I wanted to go see Zumanity (a cirque show).  So, when I got home, I changed into something not so dorky and touched up my makeup.  Same colors, but for night time I foiled them.  I really loved the look.  Since my eyes are brown, I gravitate towards yellows and greens anyway. 

I used (all from theshespace):
Monsters Mean Nothing (storypeople coll)
Leprachan Scandal (storypeople coll)
Modest Envy (Random Acts of Color coll)
Caught off Guard (Pisces coll)
I used black eyeliner, but then brushed some Modest Envy on top to tone it down a little bit.

Thanks for looking!

Oh, just some swatches

The weather is interesting here today, so I'm kind of in homebody mode.  I decided that since I'm just sitting here watching E!'s pre red carpet show, I should be somewhat productive.  So, I went through some of the random products I have ordered/bought this year, and this is what we have:

Hope you enjoy my swatches.  More to come later.  And I promise I will get some more EOTD's up.  I haven't put any makeup on my face since Friday morning... yikes!!
