Got to GO: RuPaul's DragCon 2015


Ok so I went to IMATS and GenBeauty. But now the mecha of makeup that can only be appreciated by the ones that we always secretly attain to be,  DRAG QUEENS.

Yes Please.

OMG I love the makeup, the wigs, the costumes, the ATTITUDE!!  I want to let my blogreaties know that I intend to attend and you know I Betta WORK!  I will keep you posted.

Makeup Haul from across the pond (UK)

Makeup enthusiast, lovers and artists already know the up and coming products from the United states, be it high end or drugstore.  But what about venturing out  and buying makeup products from another country?

I bought makeup from two websites that cater towards makeup lovers from the United Kingdom. Life & Looks and Makeup Revolution.

I tried to get a variety of items but if I am spending my own money I might as well get stuff that I want to get.  Which can be pretty much summed up to, eyeshadow palettes and foundations.

This post is just a haul.  I will try to post reviews on the products and my experiences with these websites at a later time

Products From Life & Looks

Light and smooth to apply. Gives a natural coverage and feels very even and flexible without drying out or leaving the skin feeling ”encapsulated”.

and Apocalips (Celestrial & Stellar)
I know you are probably asking,  "But AngelPacific, you can get that in the US?"  Yes but you also know when these products came out all the popular colors were already picked through.  This was my chance to get the colors i wanted.  the prices were a lot more but at least I got the colors i wanted.  I should have just waited a little longer.

So if you are like me and marches to the beat of a different drum, I encourage to get out of you comfort zone and take a chance with products from another country.  These products are not readily available so I think I have a secret weapon  or it make me feel a bit more special that I have something that no one else has.

Lime Crime WTF Please Boycott.

Lime Crime WTF
Ok Makeup Blogreaties heres the scoop.  This will be brief but very important.
Lime Crime is known for their ultra bright and highly pigmented products in particular their lip products.  the CEO Doe Deere,  has been deemed public enemy #1.
Just a few of the "Lime Crimes"
  • Stating will give all proceeds to an animal shelter but won't give the name
  • Bullied fans in lawsuits after receiving bad reviews
  • Shuts down contests without explanation
  • sabotaging fellow makeup brands
I know right -  this is the kind of stuff you watch on a scripted drama.  But here is the latest. SC Magazine wrote this headline Malware on Lime Crime website, payment cards compromised -  No word from Doe Deere.
Is this makeup that amazing that we would risk losing our own hard earned money?  Personally no.  I have one velvetine lip product and that took two months to get ( Now I know why)  There are now comparable dupes out there with more reputable backgrounds.  But don't worry - I got it from Urban Outfitters,  which they stopped carrying the brand.
So makeup lovers are uniting to BOYCOTT Lime Crime products.  WE need to show Doe Deere that our love for makeup is more then "surface level" and that we are sick and tired of being treated like crap.
A petition is circulating to NOT allow Lime Crime to be apart of IMATS New York.  When I went to IMATS 2014 in LA the lime crime line was around the building.  I am not so sure if IMATS will look so good if they do allow Lime Crime to participate.
Click Here for petition.
Also my fellow blogger Makeup Lover Maria_Monster wrote a very good peice about the subject
Remember the time when all makeup lovers had to worry about was if the products were tested on animals?  Stay Informed my blogreaties.
