Makeup Review- Slytherin Greens, Lush Purples and Velvety Blacks (Plus a few Eyeliners)

So its been a while since I have done anything productive on here, so I thought I would add a new makeup review for you guys!

Any of you who know me personally would know that I HATE that there are literally only a handful of good, vibrant green eyeshadows that dont look terrible. This has been a big issue for me and my want to do Slytherin inspired makeup. Today, I managed to find a palette that had TWO amazing greens in it.


The palette is called "Forest Fury" by Maybelline EyeStudio. All of them have shimmer, but the darkest green the shimmer is barely present. Seeing as I hate shimmery eyeshadows 90% of the time, this makes me really happy. They all are gold-based so they are less of a primary green and more of a yellow-green, but its wonderful. They are highly pigmented save for the two highlights, and those are REALLY pale. The glitter is really densely glittery but needs a good primer beneath it or to be used wet.

Next up is a palette from the same brand but the name is "Amethyst Ablazed" And holy shit these purples are LUSH.


Some of my favourite purples now, hands down. The glitter at the top of the palette is amazing, previously Uzi by Urban Decay was my favourite glitter, but this beats it out easily. The darkest purple is (unsurprisingly) my favourite but that glitter. That glitter.

Overall, these palettes get a 8 out of 10 from me. They are blendable, vibrant and rich, but they definitely need a primer underneath or to be used wet if you want an intense look.

Next up? My new favourite black eyeshadow.


Its by L'Oreal, the colour is Lush Raven (So fantastically goth, right?) And not only is it one of the deepest matte blacks I have found, but its super blendable and does not fade! It works amazingly wet and does even better over a primer. 9 out of 10 from me on this one.


These are some of my staples, at least, the ScandalEyes are. They are creamy and smooth, go on like BUTTER and dry to a powder-soft colour. When wet, they blend like a dream and make really good bases for shadows. I want to try the black for lips, but I havent had a chance to yet.  The two colours shown are "Blackmail" and "Tempting Turquoise"  7.5 out of 10 for these two.

The Nyx white eyeliner is just that, a white eyeliner. Its blendable and smooth, but could do with being a bit more solid. 6 out of 10 for this.

The last is a liquid felt tip eyeliner by Hard Candy called Stroke of Gorgeous. The colour is "Storm". I expected it to be a brighter shade of purple, but it ended up being a very dark, sultry plum colour. This shit does NOT rub off. It's waterproof, solid and really easy to use. 8 out of 10 for this.

All in all, new makeup was a good thing. Definitely found some new things I plan to use often! I hope you guys enjoyed this awfully rambly post!

Comfy Bun

March is doing much better today and has taken to sitting in his food bowl. He's a strange one.  He has been eating a good amount today, which is a decided change from yesterday.
We had a bad storm last night and he sat out of his crate with us for at least three hours just chilling and grooming my hand. Our power went out briefly but there wasn't really any damage during the storm. 
Anyways, I may update later with some Animal Crossing stuff.

涙の向う側に 幸せはあるの

This morning, my rabbit, Embryo died.

I guess I sort of saw it coming, but it doesn't make it hurt any less. I really needed something to take care of after Mom died, it's therapeutic for me to have something relying on me, but with Embryo dying as well, it hit a little too hard. I had a hard time, and am still having a hard time, with understanding at a baser level that I was not abandoned, that I did everything in my power that I could do for my rabbit. I know how illogical it is, but that is just one of the many joys of living with BPD.

I know that Cernunnos is watching over him now as he hops around in tall grass, eating clover flowers and basking in the sun. He is much better where he is now, than where he was. I also know that he died in loving hands and knowing that both of his Dads loved him very very much.

I worry about how March is going to handle being alone now, they were inseparable. We have had him outside a lot, letting him munch on dandelion leaves and just sit wherever he wanted. I hope he will  be alright. He has been having some similar issues to the ones Embryo presented that spurred us to take him to the vet. I cant afford another vet visit at the moment, not even close, but we are babying him and keeping a  close eye on him.

Sorry that this was my first blog post in well over a year, but I am not too sure how many people read this sort of drabble anyway.
