Monster Makeup Cosmetics

IMG_6122

   I was so very excited to try this new brand, Monster Makeup Cosmetics. This brand was created by Sam and I wanted to post her reasons for starting this company and why she chose her the name of her brand, packaging themes, and what she stands for which I loved reading about. Here is her intro and I love, respect, and everything Sam talks about:

     After this post, I will show the actual swatches of my lipsticks and how they look on me. The first thing I caught my attention about this brand is the name. Glamour, Monsters, and makeup, how could have I not checked this brand out? The second thing that caught my eye was of course the packaging. The packaging designs are gorgeous. I’m obsessed with the black rose and thorny vines design and when I received my package and I opened the box, the tissue paper had that gorgeous print, plus a little unicorn fox sticker which I thought was so cute. I’m also a huge supporter of indie makeup brands, whether it’s makeup, clothes, etc. So another reason I wanted to check Monster Makeup out.

I ordered the Kitty mini liquid bundle and two lip toppers in, “Elemental” and “Flora Moonlight,”

IMG_5973

   The first thing I opened was the mini lip bundle. Even though I’ve been trying to be good when buying lipsticks, I want to get the bundle because they are mini liquid lipsticks and the bundle has colors that I don’t normally have in my collection. The best thing about this bundle is that they are ALL MATTE liquid lipsticks. The Kitty lip bundle packaging was adorable. The frosted lipsticks with the signature black and thorn vines design looked VERY EXPENSIVE even though this isn’t a high expensive cosmetic line which I was gagging for. When it comes to the liquid lipstick bundles,  even though I love the frosted lip packaging, you definitely need to open the lipsticks to see the actual colors cause they do little lighter in the packaging. I love all the colors in this lip bundle and I like I said, I don’t have many of these shades. Another good reason to buy the mini lip bundle. The lip applicator is one of the my favorite applicators. the pointed doe-foot applicator. The end of the applicator is triangular pointed like Smashbox and SugerPill lipstick applicators, which I love because after you apply lipstick, you can use the point of the applicator to line your lips after.

As far as the lipstick formulas, they are little drying like many liquid lipstick brands are but they’re not too uncomfortable. Also if you get this bundle, a lot of the colors are light so you might have to apply another coat after your first one dries. I did really like this lip bundle and it retails for $35.00.

Now for my review on the lip toppers. On Sam’s website, they have many colors to choose from and I chose “Flora” and “Elemental.” These toppers have the same back rose design and they look gorgeous in there tubes. I actually wore ‘Elemental” over my signature red lipstick at drag con. You can see it that close up picture of me posted. I ordered those two toppers because like the lip bundle, I don’t have those toppers. They aren’t glossy and smell yummy like the “Jouer” lip toppers but the colors are beautiful and dry very quickly. Because they aren’t super glossy, they dry fast but aren’t uncomfortable at all and also look sexy over lipstick and just by itself. The lip toppers retail for $17.95.

I definitely recommend checking out Monster Makeup Cosmetics and to order anything them them, head up to Sam’s bio on how she created her business and she lists her info and where to find her products. I pre-ordered their new “DRAGON CHILD” eye shadow palette which is their first eye- shadow palette and I can’t wait to get it next month so I can see how good their eye shadows are. DEFINITELY GO CHECK OUT MONSTER MAKEUP COSMETICS WEBSITE AND IF YOU HAVE AND QUESTIONS, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO LEAVE THEM IN MY COMMENT SECTION! THANK YOU DARLINGS!

MISFIT MOMBIE BOOTIQUE

16831138_1863834850518032_921103369817763579_n
   I met Denise Sierra about two months ago through a group called, “Glamour Ghoul Gang,” which is a group that my friend Sandy Ramirez of Pretty Ghouls invited me to, and I’m glad she did. I normally don’t care about group pages on facebook but Glamour Ghoul is a fun group with very nice people and is all about horror-inspired things such as fashion, beauty, art, and more.
   Denise has an online shop called ‘Misfit Mombie Bootique,” which is such a cute name and makes incredible pieces including coffin shaped hand mirrors with liquid. When I saw these mirrors, I instantly wanted one. They looked so cool and  unique. When I first messaged Denise about placing an order, she was very sweet and asked me questions on what I wanted in the mirror such as the imagery and colors. I think it was very nice for her to customize it for me because that’s not always the case when shopping and buying online. Of course for my main color I chose red, my favorite. For the image I wanted in my mirror I chose Sherri Moon Zombie but chose a picture of her that you don’t see a lot compared to her other movie character pictures.
   This mirror is fabulous and I love how Denise made it. The quality is wonderful and she puts effort into every single detail. The movable liquid has different charms, sparkles, and glitter in it which gives it a really cool look. The prices for this Bootique are very reasonable as well which I always love. I really appreciate that even with a custom order, you get your order delivered to you pretty fast.               
   Here is my stunning Sherri Moon Zombie coffin hand mirror.

   Here are also a few other pieces from Misfit Mombie below. Besides hand mirrors, Misfit Mombie Boutique also makes and sells, pins, boxes, jewelry, and a lot more. She also does other themes such as music and movies.

   After I asked Denise if I could do a review on my site here, I also asked for a little bio about herself and her shop which I enjoyed learning. I’m always fascinated how people begin something and what inspires them. Here is how Denise and Misfit Mombie Bootique got started. Enjoy.
  “Hi! My name is Denise. I own Misfit Mombie Bootique. I was born and raised in Texas. I am a mother to four boys and two grand boys that I call my gremlins. I am a huge horror fan. Since I was a young girl I’ve always loved watching horror movies. My favorite holiday is Halloween! I just love the fall and everything about it. Most of my items are Halloween and/or horror inspired. 
    I started experimenting with resin in 2013. It started when I was looking for arts and crafts to do with my youngest son. I somehow came across resin crafting. I instantly got hooked. (Even though my very first pour was a fail. Lol!) I would go out and folks would approach me and ask me where I got my jewelry from and it inspired me to start selling my items. 
    For me, the best part is having all these wonderful ghouls love my work and wear it or display it proudly. I love being able to customize my pieces for my customers so they have something that reflects their personality. My only hope is that I can continue to perfect my craft and continue to grow my business.”
   I definitely recommend checking out, ” Misfit Mombie.” I’m very glad I found her “Bootique,” and that I met her.  Check it out, place a custom order, and enjoy!

Cleavers, Coffins, and Cuteness

I originally wanted to do these pictures around Halloween time, but I do enjoy wearing “spooky” style clothing all year round so posting them now is not a problem for me. Especially when it comes from Kreepsville 666.

If you’ve followed me for awhile, you already know how much I love the brand Kreepsville 666 so it should come as no surprise that I wanted to take photos in some newer pieces from them that I hadn’t really shown online. The only exception is that I believe I wore it in one of my youtube videos, but that’s it. I’ve bought a few new items from them, but I wanted to show off this particular outfit because I love wearing it out. This included, a new top, skirt, and accessory. I also wanted to show off my cute coffin-shaped Vampira towel that I got awhile ago but hadn’t gotten the chance to post pictures of it.

Everything I’m wearing in these photos with the exception of my high heels, are all from Kreepsville 666. 

I really liked the mood and lighting in these photos. It showed the details of my clothes and my makeup beautifully.  By the way, for my makeup, I used Anastasia of Beverly Hills, “Modern Renaissance,” eyeshadow palette, and used Smashbox, liquid lipstick in “Bawse.” I love fashion so anytime I can show and share something new, I jump right on it. These photos were fun to do as well.

 

I don’t really need to talk too much about Kreepsville’s brand here because I’ve reviewed, done other shoots in their clothes, and have mentioned them a lot in the past. If you haven’t seen my past posts on Kreepsville 666, please check them out. I will say tho, that I have never gotten anything from them that I regretted buying, which is always a good thing.

These new pieces include, my “Cleave Me Alone” cardigan which has really cute cleaver buttons, my “Spiderweb  White” skater skirt, and my “Hypno ?” single hair bow. I’m glad I also included my coffin Vampira towel in these shots. I hope you like these pictures and I appreciate and thank everyone for reading, following, and supporting me and my blog here.

“Once upon a time, there were three sisters who never stopped believing in Fairy Tales… and they all lived happily every after!”

I’ve been practicing witchcraft and spirituality since I was about twelve and when I first heard about this new makeup brand, I knew I had to have it. It took awhile for me to get it because it sold out right away but were able to get the witchy brushes right away. Last night I received my palette finally and had to do a a part one and two makeup tutorial today.  

The eye shadow colors are named, BROOMSTICK, SORCERER, CLOAK, POTIONS, PROPHECY, SALEM, MERLIN, BEWITCHED, CAULDRON, SPELLBOOK, CHARMS, AND  JINX.

The Dark Side of Lily

  You all saw my very spooky and awesome post titled, “Pretty Ghouls,” where my girl Sandy made me a dark Princess Lily ring from the movie, “Legend,” and she put a fabulous idea in my head to do an interpretation of the makeup she wore when the character “Darkness,” aka Tim Curry changes her from the innocent princess Lily to the dark goth-like princess. Here are some photos of me channeling the darkness of Lily. This makeup was a lot of fun to do. I also included a makeup tutorial of how I created this look with all the products I used. Enjoy and thank you again Sandy!
