Introducing The Plums and Roses-fotd

Ha ha instead of Guns and Roses it's Plums and Roses. Yeah. I'm lame so what. Actually today is my fiance's Birthday. In two days is my Mom's so I have only one more cake to bake after this one. I'm the cake baker since I enjoy cooking for the most part. Sadly the awesome dinner I made yesterday got my family sick so I'm barred from making my fiance's. >.<

What I used:

Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
Aromaleigh e/s in Malaga ( A soft warm mauve-berry pinks shade used on the lid.)
Aromaleigh e/s in Frutti Di Bosco ( A complex deep blue- purple used in the crease.)
Aromaleigh e/s in amarena ( A sheer pink highlighter used on the brow bone.)
N.Y.C. liquid eyeliner in black
Milani eyeliner in black

Standard Nyx Tea Rose

I'm really going to miss Aromaleigh, though I wasn't a heavy buyer you always have a special connection with your first mineral company. I think what I'll miss the most are the little sparkles in the eyeshadow, especially the type that were in the Lost in Faerie collection eyeshadows. Those were my all time favorite shadows. If I could buy the whole set I would.
I read that Morgana Minerals has similar quality eyeshadow. I've bought lipstick from there which I love but I haven't bought any eyeshadow yet. What do you ladies think of Morgana? What eyeshadows do you think I should try? :D


  1. Beautiful look, i love the slightly dusty rose colour :)
    I love Morgana Minerals, but honestly i love lipstick a lot more than eyeshadow. Their eyeshadows are very beautiful though. I really like Coraline and Uninvted Presence. Some of my favouries were from the christmas collection though and i don't think they're available anymore.

  2. I love Morgana's eye shadows and lipsticks. I like Coraline, Druscilla's sister, Mordred, Lapis Lazuli, Winifred, Lady Godiva, Intense Turquoise Glow, Fantasy Nouveaux, Broomstick, Witch's Wine, Transylvania Twist

  3. Actually I like the name XD this does look very 'plummish'.

    I haven't tried any Morgana eyeshadows yet (although I do have a small haul sitting there waiting to be opened...) but all of the swatches I've seen look really gorgeous. I'm going to miss Aromaleigh too :(

  4. Love that lid colour on you :) you suit purples and pinks so nicely.

    Fuck I love Morgana Minerals. You won't regret picking up Drusilla and Drusilla's Sister. I think I like Drusilla more than her sister because it has a blue sheen, whereas her sister is more yellow toned. Or maybe its the other way round :|

    I also love Bloody Mary, Ornamental Gold, Crow's Nest (most beautiful neutral evar), Alchemy, Chivalry, Joust and Stonekeep. I need to try more of her stuff, and use more of the stuff I already have.


Please leave a comment I'd love to hear from you.
