Legend of Zelda: Princess Zelda (Windwaker) Inspired Look

Nancy, the lovely lady who runs The Dark Side of Beauty, has chosen Legend of Zelda: Windwaker as the theme for August.  This week's challenge was to create a look inspired by Princess Zelda.

The look I decided to create played off the bright magenta pink of Zelda's jewelry and bodice of her dress, the light pinkish lavender of the skirt, her blue eyeshadow, her gold crown, and the white hair pieces. 

Read on to find out what products I used & to see more photos :)

Eco-Emi Large Bonus Box

Eco-Emi recently listed the Large Bonus Boxes as up for grabs on the Facebook fan page, so I took advantage of the offer.  Eco-Emi offers a box full of leftover products from previous boxes and sells them every now and then in bonus boxes.  They also offer full leftover boxes from time to time, and recently they sold some leftover May boxes.  However, this bonus box was much different than ones previously sold - instead of the usual contents and price tag (about 10-12 products for $15), this box would contain 30-40 products for $29.99.  I am a monthly subscriber but I figured I might snatch this up as an opportunity to get some good stuff for a great deal.

Also a quick note about bonus boxes: not all boxes are the same.  They are a compilation of leftover products from previous months, so there is discrepancy in what I receive versus another customer.  And hey, that's what makes bonus boxes so much fun!

Jump to the cut to see photos and a list of the oodles of goodies I received!

LOTD: Natural Bronze

Good afternoon everyone!
I'm here with a LOTD.  Like I said once before in a LOTD post, I tend to make this kind of post when I haven't written in a while haha.
But today I wanted to try out some of my new Shiro Cosmetics eyeshadows that I received a few weeks ago and haven't had the chance to play with.  I have work tonight so I needed a look that was natural but equally stunning.  Also, since my job requires heavy lifting, these shadows need to be able to hold up!

Etude House: Sweet Eye Cupcake REVIEW

#3 Peach & Honey
Review and swatches
에뛰드하우스 스위트아이컵케익 (Menu 3.달콜한꿀복숭아)

I recently ordered this eye shadow duo by Etude House from a seller on eBay.  I was really satisfied with the time of shipping (seriously, only a week and a few days all the way from South Korea? That's fast shipping!), the price of the product, quality of the product, and the friendliness of the seller.  I actually added this to my order of Shini Star lip balms to get a few extra samples shameless.
