EOTD ~ testing out some new products May Bird Collection (fall 2013)

So many of you may now by now, I am getting ready to release a huge, in my opinion, collection come fall. (assuming everything falls in to place) I have been working on a collection inspired by one of my favorite children's books, May Bird and the Ever After. I have planned a cream blusher, a highlighter, a fragrance, five pressed shadows and possibly a lipstick if time allows. I have been working hard trying to get everything all set and ready to go. One of the joys of creating your own cosmetics, is testing them. Here is one test of two new eye shadows.

highlight - Red Magma (White with red shift and full of gold shimmers)
crease - Text of Self-fulfilling Prophecy (chocolate brown with multicolor shimmer)
all over lid - Squash Head (a neutral sandy orange with a green sheen)

What do you think? Do you like what you have seen so far?
Have you read May Bird?

Birthday Special

Because my birthday is tomorrow, I thought I would try something new. My all time favorite scent as a convenient and lovely set.

Wigilia is the distinctive smell of that fizzy pink ginger ale.

This set includes: (1) full size perfume oil, (1) full size bath bomb that is good for two baths if cut in half and (1) breakaway wax melt.

Availible both at storenvy and etsy.

New Product Alert! - Giddy Blusher

Hello everybunny! Things have been quite busy here, but we shall not go into that. Let's just get to the good stuff! I have been working very hard on a new product to add to the MRC lineup of products, BLUSHERS! Here is the first of many blushers to be released.

Giddy - Rich maroon full of golden shimmer and bubblegum sheen when sheered out. Use a little for a healthy glow, or really pack it on for intense rosiness.

I have problems going a bit overboard with this if I am not careful. This blush is so pigmented that I am sure it would work out wonderfully on all skin tones.

What do you think?

*also there is a review over at a bit prissy from a while ago where she has a swatch of giddy as well*

Small Update And A Tutorial

Hello Everyone! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and new year. I know it was very quite here after posting the holiday update, but I was very busy being sick and trying it make it through the holidays and crazy issues at my 9-5 job. Now that everything has settled down, I have a bit of time to get all caught up with emails and everything before it is crunch time for my wedding!

One of the things I have been working on is illustrated tutorials. I personally love them. I am finally happy enough with how one turned out to be able to share it with you.

Holiday 2012 Product Release Information

Hello everybody! Yes I am super excited and yelling at you through my computer screen. Don't worry  though it is 100% happy excited LOUDNESS!!!

I have, as of last night, finished the holiday bath products! I have made a video for your viewing pleasure to see most -not all- of the holiday bath-a-palooza items. As soon as I photograph the last two products, a happy little holiday newsletter will be sent out to everyone with a coupon code for though hard to buy for people (and don't forget to pick yourself up a gift or two because you are wonderful).

First let's start with the gingerbread set:

You Can't Catch Me, I'm The Gingerbread Man!

"Once upon a time a little old woman and a little old man lived in a cottage. One Day the little old woman made a gingerbread man. She gave him currants for eyes and cherries for b

This bath melt, shaped like the gingerbread man himself, will help you feel relaxed after a long day of running around this holiday season.

Ginger, sugar, cinnamon, almonds, and black currant eyes.

Gingerbread Lane

 Here's the only bubble bar of the season. Don't be sad though, after using this one, you wouldn't want different one anyway!

Gingerbread houses stand in a row held together by sweet icing. Gum drops sit atop the roof and starlight mints line the sidewalks while cotton candy smoke billows out of a cinnamon stick chimney.

This white bubble bar full of sprinkles and popping candy embodies the scent

of a gingerbread house. The big pieces of gingerbread, gum drops, starlight mints, and the icing that holds it all together.

Citrus, ginger, nutmeg, honey, clove, vanilla bean, cocoa, peppermint, cotton candy, lemon drops, caramel, raspberry jam, and musk to hold it all together.

Gingerbregg Nog

Two of the most wonderful smells of the winter finally combined for the perfect relaxing bath time treat: Gingerbread and Eggnog. Thank goodness I can get my fix by simply taking a bath instead of being tempted by every cookie in sight!

The scent of fresh gingerbread, washed down with sweet vanilla, warm nutmeg and clove.

And here a two additional bath bombs

Peppermint Bark

The simple wonderful smell of white chocolate and peppermint, topped with real crushed starlight mints!

Dreams Of Sugar Plums

Did you know that a sugar plum is not a plum rolled around in some sugar? I thought this for most of my life, am I the only one? A sugar plum is actually a type of candy made of dried fruits mixed with almonds, honey and spices that are then rolled in sugar or coconut. So not what I imagined as a child as a sugar plum.But as an adult now, I am very interested in these candies. I have never had one, but they sure do sound tasty!

This bath bomb is based off what I imagine a sugar plum is really like. This bath bomb smells like plums, sugar, spices, raisins and figs mixed with honey. Topped with some shredded coconut, this bath bomb has a little surprise inside: Star anise, caraway and fennel sit inside this sweet little ball waiting to be released to add a grown up and herbal twist to this sweet bath.

Don't forget about the giveaway!

Review ~A Bit Prissy

Amber from A Bit Prissy just shared this wonderful review of Moon Rabbit Cosmetics. I am so glad to see that she is loving everything. Her order inspired me to wear Cupid on the brow bone, Story Book Love on the lid, and TV Dinner in the crease and outer v. That combination makes for a super awesome, daily, sexy, natural-ish look. Yes it is all of the above.
