Hi Fi Cosmetics- A review

The Company and Ordering:
I first saw Hi-Fi Cosmetics on Etsy awhile ago and had my eye on a bunch of colors. When I went to order Veronica had put her shop in vacation mode. So time went on and eventually opened back up for buisness. After more time went by Hi-Fi had a sale. In honor of the NON apocalypse , there was a $10 off of $20 or more. So I thought it was a great time to try this highly recommended company. I placed my order on May 22nd via Artfire. Artfire is very easy to use and most of the colors lists the ingredients , whether it's vegan, whether it's lip safe,size and description.
Shipping and packaging:
I ended up ordering the 5 shadows for $20.00 with the discount it came to $10.00. Shipping was $1.00 which is the best shipping ever. Now the shipping time did take a bit long but Veronica was experiencing alot of power outings and storms. She did update her Facebook page as often as she could. On June 6th I messaged Veronica about my order, she quickly messaged me back apologizing and stating that it should ship the next day and that she has been busy running errands that her husband who is away on military duty does. I can appreciate that being my brother is in the Army. I received my package on June 13th In a bubble mailer. My shadows came in bags. 4 in 1 bag and 1 in another bag. There was an invoice included as well as a business card and 2 samples baggies which were in another bag.
The Products:
I was so excited for the colors that I started using them immediately. I really like how the color and ingredients are on the bottom of the jar.

Another Day, Another Drama- "is a vibrant purple with ultra-fine cosmetic grade holo glitter and tons of pink and fuschia sparkle!"
 This is a beautiful color and has made it to my favorite purples!
Punk Rocker- "is a dark pink metallic shade with LOTS of flamingo pink sparkle"
 A very vibrant pink! You need sunglasses when looking at it! hehe .. This has also made it to my favorites!
Psycho Mind-  "is a very dark and complex asylum of color-shifting magic!"
 Very nice color! Make a fantastic smokey eye
Magic Spell- "is a bright-blue on a duochrome base, loaded with deep purple glitter!!!"
 A pretty blue!!
Suicide Trees- "is a deep, metallic teal on an opaque black base! As beautiful as it is dark and ominous!" Wow.. just Wow.. This yet again has made it to my favorite collection!
Don't Forget The Violence (sample)-" is a shimmering bright blue with lots of turquoise sparkle!" Awesome blue! Looks awesome as a liner
Red Wine (sample)- "is a purpley wine color with lots of wine-toned shimmer!"
 Very pretty color!!
L-R over E.L.F Eye Primer: Don't forget the violence, Red Wine, Suicide Trees, Another Day another drama, Magic Spell, Psycho Mind, Punk Rocker

Final thought:


-Awesome colors
-Great customer service
-Easy ordering
-Secure shipping
-Found 3 favorites!
-Good price
-Supporter of the Military ( I know that's a bit personal but I am a HUGE supporter of the military)
-Descriptions on jar

Will I be ordering agian? Yes. Yes and yes!! I already have! This is a great little company and Veronica is an awesome owner!

Fryinnae- A Review

The Company and Ordering:
I have heard alot of good things about Fryinnae from other bloggers, especially about their pixie epoxy primer. I heard its amazing and their shadows are beautiful , so I decided to give them a look. Going through the pages of lovely colors I decided to place an order, But I wanted to try their pixie epoxy to see what all the hype is about. At that time they didnt have any so I created an account and put a couple mini shadows in my cart and waited. About a week later I heard that they had PE back in stock so I went ahead and placed my order. Now on the front page it says that there TAT is 26-28 days possibly sooner, which is kind of ridiculous but went ahead and placed an order.

Shipping and packaging:
 My order was placed on May 17 and I received a shipping notice on May 22nd , so I am guessing that the 26-28 days is to cover themselves. My order arrived on May 26th in a bubblemailer. my pretties were wrapped in tissue paper. There was an invoice and a free sample included!

The Products:All the shadows came in a 3 gram jar with 1/3 tsp of product.

Darling misfit- "This is a deep magenta-pink with a contrasting aqua highlight"
Love this color! its subtle but bright.. works great for a wild and crazy colorful look or an everyday look!
Gigawatts- "Brilliant shimmery electric blue with flashes of gold sparkle"
Wow.. This is such a vibrant blue.. I was a bit overwhelmed by it at first.. lol but I love it!
Senyo- "Vibrant, shimmery, sparkling pink-hued purple"
It's purple.. need I say more..
Sleepy Hollow-  "Lush ocean blue with a flash of sage green as the light hits, Sleepy Hollow has a touch of gold sparkle as well."
Makes a wicked awesome smoky eye
Sugar Skulls ( Free sample) "Vibrant deep pink, leaning warm but not overly so, with a glimmering orange (not gold!) highlight that adds dimension"
Very pretty pink!
Pixie Epoxy - To be used over primer. Gives the ability to rub shadows and not pat.
It took me awhile before I figured out to use this properly. Less is more.. This works great and really brings out the vibrancy in the colors!

                                        L-R over E.L.F eye primer and Pixie Epoxy
                         Darling Misfit, Gigawatts, Sugar Skulls, Sleepy Hollow and Senyo
                            All these colors are super pigmented and blend beautifully! 

Final thought:


-Great color selection
- Very vibrant colors
-Easy blending

TAT could be a bit long if your looking on getting your stuff quickly

Will I be ordering agian? Yes! I really like the colors and my TAT wasnt very long!

                        A Look I did using Senyo Gigawatts, Darling Misfit and Sugar skulls!
So what are your favorite Fryinnae colors?
