Since there are a bunch of Final Fantasy games to choose from I was thinking of either picking out my favorite, or picking out one of two things to base a shadow off of. My two favorites are 7 & 8. I enjoy 10 and 10-2 as well. .. hmm I guess maybe I could always pick my favorite games and choose from them. Monster Rancher will be up at the end of Feb. so keep a look out for that.
On a side note my blushes are coming out well. I should have them up mid March along with my Urban Decay Naked Pallet inspired colors.

I've been a big fan of Everquest and Diablo for quite some time. I was thinking that as soon as I finish the Monster Rancher collection I will start working on these.
They will be based off of monsters, characters, and zones of course. I may put in a couple of casts or two as I have always loved casters as opposed to the melee kind.
I promise as soon as I have some ideas I will share them with you!!
I have a gift card for Sephora, and was looking for things to buy the other day. I tend to stay away from eyeshadows since I could probably make just about anything I find (or close enough). Here's a list of items that peaked my interest!
Sephora.com states that "Infused with natural clay harvested from the banks of the Amazon River and naturally baked by the sun, this nutrient-rich blush benefits all skin types for a fade-free flawless finish for an amazing 12 hours. Inspired by Tarte's best-selling shades of cheek stains and lip tints, the colors range from soft to vivid to suit a wide variety of skintones. For oily skin types, Amazonian clay minimizes o il in and around pores to balance skin and keep product in place. Those with dry skin will benefit from the clay's nourishing and hydrating properties, which naturally restore skin's moisture. Combination skin types can rely on its ability to zero in on skin concerns and deliver benefits to restore complexion harmony. The result? Blush that wears better, longer, and truer!"
This blush is made without paradens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, petrochemicals, phthalates, gmo's, and triclosans.
For 0.2 oz of product this item costs $25. So despite this price for a blush I'm still leaning towards getting it.
I though this collection was super cute, and seem wearble for my complexion. I love purples so this was seems like a nice fit. The paler colors will either be hit or miss so we'll see. This set containes four 0.5 oz bottles of polish. The colors are Leotard-Optional, The Way Tutu His Heart, Who's Spinning Tonight?, and Break a Leg-Warmer!
This set IS $18 which isn't that bad in my opinion. They have a GLEE collection too, but I only like one of the colors.. it's a collection set exclusive .. go figure .. So unfortunately I will not be spending $24 on five 0.5 oz bottles just for one of the colors.
I'm hoping to grab this since a.) it's vegan b.) it's only $16. The reviews on Sephora's site are good. Ssoo I must buy this.. I don't have any vegan brushes yet sothis will be nice to add to my collection!
Along with this I was hoping to pick up a few of their 24/7 glide-on shadows. I saw them used on Phyrra.net, and they totally grabbed my attention!
Are there any things you're lusting after??

I love hearing from my readers so I'd love to know which products are your staples or HG items.
For me I really love Covergirl's LastBlast mascara, Hard Candy 1,000 lashes primer, Too Faced Shadow Insurance, Jack Black's lip balm, Korres Vitamin primer, Meow Sizzle bronzer, Pink Quartz's mineral foundation, and I have found myself using Physicians Formula Mood Boosting blush in rose everyday. My lip color normally changes from day to day, but this week I have been wearing show orchid everyday. I'm dying to try MAC's Revenge is Sweet lipglass over it!! My liner normally changes as well, but I find myself reaching for Urban Decay's 24/7 liner in whisky and zero.
Now it's your turn!

Psyche Minerals will be closed from today til Tuesday. I am currently working a different shift. I normally work 4pm-12am, but for 5 days I will be working 8am-4pm. I don't know how my body is going to react to this short change in my schedule, but I don't want to not be able to take care of orders on time in case I get home from work, and pass out for a few hours.
This does not mean if I have free time I won't be working on the colors I need to make for a couple of my collections. I'll update anything I finish on the blog of course!
When I reopen on Tuesday there will be a sale til Wednesday at midnight 25% off using coupon code snowy25

I am a part of a team on etsy called Trade-A-Holic, and we recently had a massic trade even in which I aquired some sweets from Sakura Candy &Bake Shop. For those of you who don't know, I have HUGE sweet tooth . .::drool:: .... Anyways I ordered some fudge and peppermint bark from her. She graciously added a sample of her Ghiradelli Cheese Southern Style Fudge. Holy cow . . this stuff is fantastic! It doesn't have a overly powerful cheese taste, but there is a small hint. I think the reason I may notice this is because I'm just a crazy cheese lover . .It's sweet and a little bit salty, just perfect! I want to eat the whole sample right now, but I want the boy to try some when I see him next. I want to share this with everyone, as long as they get their own piece! Seriously though it's something you should give a try. I did and I totally love it! It's very unique, and totally worth it. I don't know if I would buy an entire 5 lbs at one time for the fear of eatting it all ine 1 day, lol.
