i am a shopping freakomaniac

i can't sleep because the cafe/bar next door downstairs is being really loud :( hate hate hate it!

ok enough negativity...

So because i can't sleep, and i saw alienman's post on Silk Naturals' sample/shipping offer, I started shopping...

Right now I have in my cart the following:
  • Ultimate Eye Shadow Brush aka Double Ended Synthetic Eye Brush
  • Blush sample of Sassy (matte peach)
  • Blush sample of Flirt (matte neutral plum)
  • 5 empty sample jars with sifters (to transfer my NYX pigments to)

I'm thinking of getting this too but I'm not sure yet if I really need more mineral eyeshadows:

Pink Clone of MA's Her Ladyship
"It has a pink base with sparks of gold, and gold highlights- and an effect that's really other-wordly. "

Also debating whether to get their Wet/Dry Mineral eyeshadow foiling brush since I don't have too many synthetic eyeshadow brushes right now. Hmm....

The offer is until Sunday so I probably will wait til Saturday to checkout my order.


At the same time, for some reason I decided to check out The She Space website since I've been hearing about it from Christiana's blog but never looked at their stuff.

Big mistake.

I ended up with 17 items in my cart. Good thing they're ALL SAMPLES, only $0.50 cents each and just $1.50 shipping to Canada.

They do have a 1 week processing time right now though, so I won't be getting them anytime soon.

I must say the colours look gorgeous on the website! Plus Christiana has been doing really pretty looks with them so I hope these are as pigmented as I think they are.


Before I forget, I did get my T'estimo Frame Impact Eyes 01 Green palette in the mail today!

I took pictures and will do a review soon :)

And why am i shopping freakomaniac? if the above hasn't yet convinced you that is.
Because a few hours after receiving it I went and bought more stuff off -.-

He does things really quickly, I got a confirmation within 45 minutes that my order had been processed and will be shipped out.


I just went back to to get the picture of the palettes off his site, and the T'estimo palette in Purple now has the sold out sticker. That means I snagged the last one! Wow I can't believe I could've missed it if I had waited. Now I feel a bit better about ordering so soon again :)

So this is what the stuff should look like:

T'estimo Frame Impact Eyes palette 03 Purple
Kate Square Cut Liner in BR-2 Natural Brown


Lavshuca Eye Colour Select in PK-1 Pink

aww, I've been ordering online like mad as well - ordered kits for my mom & sis-in-law, along with more foundation & powder for myself from SN =P I have Whisper - can't compare it to Your Ladyship since I don't own it, but it's a nice little highlight color. The She Space e/s looks really pretty, and can you really beat 50 cent samples?? that little pink palette looks so cute!

watercoloursky said...

lol thanks that makes me feel a bit better :D
Oh I might ask you to swatch Whisper if you can :) I'm just worried it'll be too shimmery/glittery.

alien man?! said...

o dear, what have i done to you... hehe...

welp, at least this means we have more FOTDs to look forward to :D

Hey arashi!

I have SN's Whisper too, but I find it too shimmery for my taste. :P Hehe. That's just me though. That's if you apply it wet though. Dry it's still slightly shimmery, but not as much as if you were to foil it. :D The thing to remember with The She Space's pigments, is they suck when they're applied dry, but are gorgeous when foiled. :]

yah whisper is quite sparkly, not at all like yoru ladyship I think...whisper is not a must have e/s, if you have other highlight colours then that will do too. Like on me there is no diff when I wear whisper or MAC shroom, naked lunch.

I did buy the nylon clone called sprite, that one is good and so is the VEx dupe, called nymph.

IchigoBunnie said...

oo the first palette looks really nice. I checked out the adambeauty a while ago and things seem so expensive once converted to USD! :( lucky that you can buy those stuff still. they all look nice and cute :O

fei: i would try to go on a ban myself but i know i would just break it. So all i've been doing is just making sure i don't buy something if i already have a similar colour

nicnic & bliss: i'd be interested to see what you get!

christal & christiana: thanks so much for the info! i'm definitely not getting whisper then :)

christiana: i'll keep that in mind :)

incandescent: np, i hope it'll work out for you!

alienman: haha i guess so!

watercoloursky said...

ichigobunnie: i know depends on which brands you are going for. some brands are marketed at a higher price range. But I find its still quite close to the japanese retail price. Just that if i were to buy it in japan they might have discounts on the stuff.
Also I just found that if i were to actually buy the stuff here in Toronto from the asian mall it would cost $8 more per item... :(
