Kinda' bad news.... :(

I know many of you have been waiting for the Ingenue Petite Dual Fiber to go back in stock this week but I just got off the phone with my supplier and they apparently don't have them ready to ship to me yet until next week, which means it may not be on my site until two weeks or so from today. (Sigh!) Yes, I am pretty disappointed as well as I was REALLY hoping to have these ready to go for you all this week along with another "Blog Special" brush that has been highly requested but that will have to be put off until I can get these brushes in hand. So no, there won't be a Blog Special this week... But to take your mind off the BAD NEWS, let me at least share some good news with you all: I will be moving from Ecrater to my very own website (hopefully--please no more delays, LOL!) in mid to late May! Once I move over there, I will actually be adding a whole slew of new Ingenue & Premium eyeshadow brushes which I can't wait to share with you all! FYI, this site

Earth Day Blog Special

I knew the UPS man wouldn't let me down--so here is the special giveaway as promised! In celebration of Earth Day which is April 22 (and I believe this whole week is Earth Week) I got this freebie giveaway for those of you that spend $15 or more; you will automatically get one of these with your order! It is the cutest eco-friendly brush with interchangeable tips; the handles are made from bamboo and all the bristles are make of taklon, a synthetic bristle. It probably won't replace your best eyeshadow brushes but it makes a fun travel tool and can be thrown in your purse when you need to touch up colors in a pinch! I got enough of these that I believe I should have enough for every order that comes in until Friday, April 24--you won't even need to put in the "Notes" section that you want this! This is my little gift to all my customers for this week. If I were to sell it on my website, I would sell it for at least $4.49-$4.99. However, if you spend at least $22 ,

Update before the weekend...

Hey, all! (Or should I say "y'all" since I've technically a Southern gal, lol?) Yes, this week has been silent with no Blog Special this week but I have been busy with a "little" project that has kept me occupied so I didn't get a chance to think up a good Blog special and I was rather limited on time anyway--there is usually a pretty good spike in orders when I have those! I mainly wanted to just give you all a few updates: *Celestial Powder: I will still be carrying this but I have decided to switch to the 30 gram jar vs. the 25 gram tall profile jar. Part of it is that it is much easier to find the 30 gram jars but also, it's kind of an awkward shape and doesn't package as neatly and organized with the other products like the 30 gram jar does. But having this change will allow me to start putting in those cute little powder puffs with them, so that will be an added plus! You'll STILL get 4 grams and it will still be the same price at $4.99

Arm swatches on Spring '09 LE Eyecolors

I know there are a lot of you that usually like to see arm swatches before buying, so this is for you! (You may need to click on the photo to see a larger image, FYI.) I had trouble fitting them on my arm so sorry for the not so perfect picture taking, but I hope this kind of gives you an idea of what they look like. Thoughtful is probably the sheerest and may not show up on medium/medium tan skin or darker as a *color* but does give eyes that extra sparkle. I actually like to wear Optimistic--which is a rather strange looking pastel yellow swatched, but sure perks up tired eyes!--with Thoughtful applied to the crease and up to the browbone. Then I'll pair it with Resolute worn like a super thick eyeliner on my upper eyelid with one of the brighter colors like Dignified or Dedicated foiled as an thinner eyeliner along rims of my eyes. So that it doesn't looks so "crayola" I do wear a soft black or dark brown eyeliner around just to pull the look together. Here are so

New Spring '09 Colors & Sets & new Blushes are here!

Before I start, many apologies as I think Ecrater, the site that handles my store, was down for maintenance last night but it is back up and running as of this morning! There are still a couple glitches as I'm having trouble adding my new blush collage photos for the Blush sets as well as the Spring '09 LE collages but those will be updated soon hopefully--so feel free to add the new items where they are appropriate. If you are unsure, email me at Just a quick glimpse of them! I've been checking out fashion magazines, clothing stores, some customer requests, and even nature itself for the inspiration for these. Even though I love and usually prefer neutrals, I've found these colors to be quite wearable and pretty. Maybe later this week or next, I can put together some combinations that some of you might find inspiring... As with the last LE set, I will be keeping the prices the same (meaning no sales) on these the whole time they are availa
