Please pardon the gaps...

The site is in mid-migration now (manual migration of over 7,000 entries, so there's a lot to be done.) The entry stubs are created for older content, but for the most part, the actual content isn't there quite yet. I am working on it. Unfortunately I have no ETA. But feel free to link to any page!

EoTD: Peacock Dreams

I got my Morgana Cryptoria order the other day - five lipstick samples from the 2011 vegan collection, one full tube - and the owner had sent along a sample of one of her new shadows to try. Jaded Peacock is going to be included in the Murder Mystery collection, to be released some time this month or next (at one point the target for release was mid-February, then March. If something else comes up, it'll have to slip again.)

This color reminds me of Bare Escentuals' Peacock...in a good way. BE's Peacock looks like a rich teal-y green with gold shimmer in the pot; but apply it (even foiled) and...it kind of vanishes. It's extremely sheer. Jaded Peacock, in contrast, keeps a good level of pigment even when applied dry, showing up as a softer blue-green with a faint gold sheen.


  • UDPP, lash to crease
  • Aromaleigh v1's But This Is My Dream, inner lid lash to crease
  • Sephora's Flashy Liner in Green, upper lash line
  • Morgana Cryptoria's Jaded Peacock, innermost lid, upper lash line atop Flashy Green liner, outer crease
  • Bare Escentuals' Flawless Definition mascara, upper (1 coat Volumizing, 1 coat Waterproof) and lower (Waterproof) lashes

I've only recently tried the Volumizing version of the Flawless Definition mascara...and I'm thoroughly impressed!! The price is a bit steep, and I really really wish it came in a waterproof formula (because I'm one of those lucky bunnies who, if she doesn't use waterproof mascara, will have racoon-eyes within three hours even in very unhumid, colder climates). However, I got the duo through QVC, two tubes for $26, and got it on autodelivery so I'll be getting several tubes for this buy-one-get-one-half-off price. I'll do a full review of this mascara later this week, because I'm very pleased with the results...even if I really do wish that it came in a waterproof formula.
