In the next several posts, I'm going to be showing you guys my Morgana Cryptoria lipsticks. This one is called Troll Repellent, and it is fairly new. It is absolutely gorgeous and unlike anything I own. It is described on the Morgana website as "Bold violet with sparkles changing blue to purple." It was an absolute bitch to try and get a true-to-color swatch of this one, but I did my very best :) I would say that this lipstick is just a tad darker in real life and a pinch more purple than pink.
It's a really neat purpley-fuschia with tons of blue sparkles (my description). I haven't experienced any fallout with the sparkles at all, and I've been wearing it now for about 8 hours. The sparkles are not grainy or big. They are just there and amazing. It looks like a freaking galaxy when the sun hits it. One thing I love about Morgana lipsticks is their staying power. I can eat stuff and drink stuff, and yet they stay pretty damn well. The formula is on the dry side (at least for this color, I'll speak individually for each color I post) but it doesn't dry out my lips. It's just...there. As if it's simply changing the color of my lips instead of sitting on top of them. It's just perfect. I hate having a wet, messy lipstick that just slides off when I take a sip of water. I am by no means a girly-girl, and I need that shit to stick with me through some nonsense. Anyways, I love it. The end.

I'm completely smitten with a new jewelry shop called Phloxy Lee! I thought I would do a quick post and just show you the necklace I snagged :)
|Custom chaos pendant!|
|My makeup has done melted off by this point in the day. Also, I'm still working on this whole "smile without looking creepy/like you just farted" phenomenon. My deepest and most sincere apologies for my face.|
Basically I just love this jewelry company. The owner/creator is extremely talented, and although fairly new to online sales, I understand she has been creating jewelry for quite a while. It shows.
My necklace was custom, and within a matter of a few days it was shipped out to me! Customer service is fantastic. I asked for a custom piece, spent a few e-mails back-and-forth working out what I wanted with the owner, she crafted it for me and sent it out posthaste. She also stayed in touch to make sure it got to me okay (it had delivery confirmation, but USPS being the fickle bitch it is never updated the status, however that wizardy works). The price was great. I paid $10 for this one and a few bucks in shipping. It's a great feeling to be completely satisfied with everything from a shop from price, service, and quality. Everything is there, seriously.
Will I buy more? Hell yes. If you want to check out some of Phloxy Lee's awesome pieces, you can find them on Facebook (link below). For the time being, pieces are viewed on Facebook, and through e-mailing the owner, you can get an Paypal invoice. So, go lurk on the page and bask in the awesomeness of all the pretties.
