Avenue B - A Jewelry Review

Awhile ago I was browsing around for makeup/B&B and jewelry and decided to go on Heartsy to see if there was anything that was any good . I haven't bought anything via Heartsy in a long while.. there was too much drama at one point plus nothing that tickled my fancy.. So I browsed Hearsty and found a cute little Jersey based jewelry shop called Avenue B.. well I found some cute things so I bought a voucher and placed my order. My goodies arrived a couple weeks later in a bubble mailer. 1 necklace came in an organza bag and the other necklace and earrings came in a little box.

Octopus Cameo necklace: I ordered this in pink and black . It also is silver plated and came with a ball chain. I really like this necklace!

Pretty Little Darling : A Dead Cameo Necklace: This is gunmetal plated. I love this necklace! It looks fabulous and I have gotten so many compliments on it!!

Black Glittery Ear Stud Flowers: These are cute but a bit big for my ears.. so won't be worn all the time but are cute for a special occasion!

I like this shop! They have tons of pieces and the price isn't to bad, and they are from Jersey which is awesome (WOOT WOOT)

Will I order again? Heck yeah.. When I get the funds! Now my makeup collection is crazy awesome I think I'm going to work on my jewelry collection!

Lucky 107 - A Review

The Company:
Awhile ago I saw a review on a company called Lucky 107. ( I forget who did the review) But I was immediately drawn in. For 1 the logo is a clover and horseshoe.. and we know I'm nuts about clovers! I went on the site and browsed around. I was impressed by the variety of products ranging from shadows to primer and lip gloss and solid lotion. Lucky 107 offers 2 types of bloggers packs.. 1 for the up and coming reviewer and 1 for the experienced blogger.. Each pack has a set of stipulations for it. I met the criteria for the experienced blogger.. So I went ahead and chose my products and placed the order.. I did message the owner Rebecca about an extension on posting time .. I wasnt positive if I would be able to get the post out in the 2 weeks... this was right after my father passed away.. so didn't know where my life would be.. She replied back very sweetly and told me no problem.. to take my time.! So I went ahead and placed my order on Feb 15th

Shipping and packaging:

My order arrived on the 24th in a bubble mailer 9 days after I ordered... inside was alot of pretty stuff! 6 clamshells came in a plastic bag, 4 full sizes came wrapped in tissue paper tied with ribbon.. 2 lipglosses , 1 lip balm and a primer were wrapped the same way.. Inside the 2nd plastic bag was a free sample , invoice and buisness cards. All in all very cute wrapping and presentation.

The Products:


Liz-beth : "a shimmery green with bright yellow undertone & flecked with 'fairy dust'

Super pretty color!! It loves my lids!

Suckerpunch: "a shimmery, steel blue"

Very light and lovely color.. reminds me of the movie.. not sure if that's what Rebecca was going for.. 

Beauregard : "a magenta-undertoned pink"

Makes a pretty smokey eye

Donna: "a firey red with orange undertones"

This color is different then I thought it was going to be.. not in a bad way but different..its super pretty but not a color I would use alot.

Iris: "a periwinkle blue with violet duochrome' (got in LOL letter)

"OMG.. I can't express how beautiful this color is.. It looks great on the lid , as a liner.. in the corner.. This has made it into my favorite shadows box"
                                     (L-R Suckerpunch,Donna,Beaureguard,Iris,& Liz-beth)

October:  Pink with pink sparkles

Very nice color... looks amazing on the lid

Frostbite: "bright, rich blue with flecks of white glitter"

Looks crazy awesome foiled

Cocoa: "a deep, naturally shimmery brown"

This color has a goldish tone to it.. I love it!

Zombie Bitch: "an earthy green with violet iridescence & punches of purple glitter"

This color is amazing.. one of my favorite greens
                                           (L-R : Zombie Bitch,Cocoa,Frostbite & October)

Pluto is a Planet: "a medium purple with blue duochrome, bursting with blue "sparks" & white glitter"

I love the name but the color is darker than I thought is was going to be

Nibs: "an olive drab, matte, brown"

I have mixed feeling with this color.. I like it but I don't .. I'll have to use it a bit more to have more of an opinion.

Scrum-diddli-umptious:  "a shimmery silver with undertones of brown"

Unique and makes a great crease color

                                       (L-R : Scrumdiddliumptious, Nibs, & Pluto is a planet)
Everything Else:

AnnaBanana" Lip Gloss: "a soft, buttery nude, banana flavored gloss.'

1 coat is nice but 2 coats is too yellow for everyday for me

Beach Bunny" Lip Gloss: "a soft, dusty rose, raspberry flavored gloss"

Absolutely lovey color..
(I cant find the swatch for this.. and have no idea where it ran off to)
"Vamp-Kiss" Lip Blush: "a lovely lavender with blue sheen, caramel apple flavored tinted lip balm"

I really like this.. not too purple for everyday! 

Concrete Primer: "our own special blend used to create our eyeshadow primer that is available in an 11ml* squeeze tube."

Now for the primer.. This is an easy to work with primer.. and you only need a tiny bit. This works well for short time use and swatches but as far as for all day use it creases alot.. 
                                                        This is after about 5 hours in a bar

Final thought:


-Good customer service
-Variety of colors and products.
-Decent Shipping time
-Cute packaging 
-Great Colors

-Primer didn't work for me for long time/all day use

Will I be ordering agian?  Yes! Already picking items out. Lucky 107 is a cute company and I am sure will become an Indie fav in no time! I can't wait to see more gloss and other products Rebecca comes out with!!

Have you tried Lucky 107 yet?

And special thanks to Rebecca for hanging in there with me while I get this post up!!

Evil Shades Cosmetics- A Review

 The Company:
I have seen reviews and looks done with EvilShades Cosmetics for awhile now and for some reason I just never ordered from them.. I have browsed the site.. but never placed an order.. honestly I have no idea why.. after a couple blogger friends told me I HAVE to order from ES I told myself I will place no other order till I order from ES.. I decided to go with a blogger pack which offered my choice of 5 shadows, 3 blushes and 4 lippies for $10.00.

Shipping and packaging:
It only took a couple weeks for my order to arrive ( I completely forgot to type everything down) but everything came within TAT time. My order arrived in a bubble mailer and everything came in a super cute soft teal organza bag. The shadows came in clamshells, the blushes came in a pot shell? I don't know what they are called and the lippies came in a mix of clamshell and a cute little holder..

The Products

 As far as the shadows.. all shadows go on super smooth and look great! I know I went a little nutty with the purples but.. you know me .... :)  The blushes are lovely and unique! The lippies are amazing and much better then I thought! The only thing is that Deception is a bit clumpy and a little oily.. it could have been the container or maybe that is the way it is.. but it's a great color!


Renodite (shadow)
Chusi (shadow)
Illusive (shadow)
Daydream (blush)
Lost Kiss (lip)
Felines kiss (lip)

Final thought:


-Fair pricing
-Shipped withing TAT
-Cute packaging 
-Pretty good Selection
-Great color payoff
-Unique color palette

-The only complaint I have is that Deception was a little clumpy and oily.. it may have been cause of the small container.

Will I be ordering agian? Most definitely!! I have got to get my hands on some of those lippies..I like this company.. not only the persona.. but the final product!! Can't wait for my next order!!!
