How to decide when choosing etsy/indie companies

I always go to or before purchasing anything to see if they or bloggers they know have dealt with them before.

I know a lot of you who have purchased from me before also choose other mineral/etsy shops, and I thought this would help you all out.

New @ Psyche Minerals: COTW

I decided to do something new over at Psyche Minerals. Each week I will choose a different color for the "Color of the Week" at which it will be priced at $1.75 instead of $3. The shipping will be the same though.

If you guys have any requests just let me know. Right now the COTW is Orion Slave which is one of my favorites.

Since I started on a Saturday a new color will come out every Friday.

Psyche Minerals - Japanese Earthquake Relief - Buy two full sizes get one free!

Buy two get one free! Just put the colors that you want in the notes to seller before checking out!

100% of the proceeds ($6 not including shipping) will go to the Red Cross Japanese Earthquake Relief fund.

Full sizes are sold in 3 gram clear jars. They are filled right where the threads on the jar starts which varies between .8 and 1.0 gram some shades are heavier and some are more fluffy so they tend to fill the jar quicker and weight less.

While every effort has been made to accurately photograph colors, their appearance will vary on different monitors, and some of the more multidimensional aspects of the shadows simply cannot be captured on camera. Please refer to shade descriptions, or order samples beforehand to avoid disappointment.

I do ship internationally! Just message me for a custom listing so I can apply the correct country, and amount for shipping.

Ingredients: see individual listing

All shadows are created by me, and are NEVER REPACKAGED because that wouldn't be any fun now, would it? This shadow contains no dyes. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please convo me PRIOR to buying. See shop policies for some FAQs.

All are items are safely packaged in organza bag wrapped in tissue paper. Included with your purchase will be a list of ingredients in each item you've purchased. You will be refunded any overage of shipping costs via PayPal.

Sephora by OPI: Personal Shopper

I just noticed that they don't sell this color anymore.... but I still wanted to blog about it. It's the perfect red for me. It goes on semi opaque with a first coat. It is a cream type of polish which is my new favorite finish! It has a nice gloss to it once it dries.

The Sephora by OPI colors, at least the ones I have tried, all seem to dry quickly, and last for a while with slght tip wear as long as you have a base and top coat.

Personal Shopper is a creamy slightly darkened true red color. Even with the first coat it doesn't appear pinkish at all which is a plus for me!! I'm not a big fan of more than 2 coats of polish aside from the base and top coat.

I wish I had a picture to show you, but my mani looks kind of beat.

Sephora does some of their Sephora by OPI colors on sale for $5, as opposed to $9.50, which are the ones they are getting rid of. I picked up Lost Without My GPS which is said to be a opaque bright vintage orange-red, but IMO leans more coral on me for some reason.

I want Special Request which is a opaque modern tangerine coral and Access 24/7 which is a opaque juicy magenta pink.

Used the last of my POPS!....(Please Read)

Since my pops are now all gone some of my colors have too for the time being. I'm going to try my hardest to reformulate my colors the best I can, but they might be slightly off.

I know that there are some wholesalers out there that DO sell the pops micas, but they do not have them at a resonable price for the amount of mineral shadows I sell. I know what may seem as an insiginificant amount to you in the grand scheme of things may be but add up each color that needs to be purchased, and that's half of what my regular order costs for my supplies.

I am sorry for any inconvience this may cause, but I am going to try mt hardest to get an exact match to the colors that have been pulled. If worse comes to worse I will just replace the colors all togehter with new ones.


Thanks for reading,

Changes at Psyche Minerals

I am revamping the full size (3gram) jars that I sell. They will now come with a sifter, and shrink wraped so that no "mistakes" (spillage) occure during transit. These changes will take effect as soon as I received my package from my wholesaler. I currently have around 8 (or maybe less) regular ones so I will sell those first, and as soon as I sell out of those the sifter ones will now be what I only sell.  If you are someone who DOES NOT like sifters please let me know as I will make sure to not add it, and just add the shrink wrap.

I was thinking of maybe going to 5 gram with sifters?.... either selling just those or in addition to the 3 gram, but for $2 more.

What do you guys think?

Psyche Minerals is on Artfire

I decided to open up shop on I know some of the people I purchase from on Etsy also have shops there. I have not yet decided on if I am closing my Etsy shop down or not. It's hard because all of my feedback is there, and I hate to start fresh on Artfire. I mean I just hit over 100 sales recently...

You can visit my artfire shop over at

I'm just starting to add some of my shadows so there isn't much there yet,

Nothing But Concern..

After hearing about releasing buyers history and real names it has me questioning if I should continue to use their site to host my shop, Psyche Minerals. I was contemplating just moving everything over to artfire or maybe making my  own site somehow but I'm not 100% sure yet what I'm going to do. Not only am I concerned for my privacy, but the privacy of my buyers, people in my circle, . .etc . .

Up until now I have had nothing but love for etsy, and everything on there. I have found such wonderful shops, and people who make the most wonderful jewelry, mineral make up, and such. I guess I just kind of feel betrayed by Etsy, and what they were supposed to stand for. Everyone there is either someone who makes their own product, sells vintage items, supplies or someone who buys handmade, vintage, or supply items.

Here's a link to OHWTO in regards to what has been going on;

What do you all think of this?

TKB . . I need my Hot Mama and Pink Red/Blue

So everytime I go to make another purchase at TKB something I need ot out of stock. First it was Hot Mama, then it was the POPS!, and now it is the Pink Red/Blue shade. Does any one know of any dupes for Hot Mama or Pink Red/Blue shade?

I was looking at other wholesalers, but I cannot find anything that closely resembles what I'm looking for. Let me tell you I LOVE love love these two micas . . . I've been waiting on Hot Mama for a while now. I don't know how you end up with a shortage of a color. If I had any left I'd try to dupe ot myself. Pink Red/Blue will be harder to dupe.

Any suggestions?

Recent Creations

Here are recent creations that I haven't named yet. After a while naming gets a little dificult when I try my hardest to come up with some what original ones, and not ones used by other cosmetic companies.

What do you think of the colors? They are all straight shimmer and sparkle. No added glitter at least not as of yet :)

What's Next?

Since my Monster Rancher collection is fully launched it on to my next task. While I will be in the process of formulating inspired colors from Urban Decay's Naked Pallet they won't be finished/available til mid spring possibly as late as the beginning of summer.

I'm deciding if I want to go the route of maybe doing a Mario Brothers  or Final Fantasy collection next. . . I know for sure with the Final Fantasy one there will be A LOT of colors for that particular collection since there is a huge amount of characters and stuff for inspiration.

What do you think? Any suggestions for certain characters or items from the games?
