A tale of free Mascara... and a review of Rimmel Lash Eccelerator Endless Mascara.

It's been a tick or a lot of ticks. But here I am- I wanted to post something to try and motivate me to blog more and since Rimmel London provided me with a product to test and review via the Influenster program, I figured this was as good a time as any! :D My full review is in the video I made for it so I'm leaving that here. I am posting a before and after pic so you can see what it does and decide if you want to watch the video.

I did a demo along with my completely honest review... which is not exactly glowing. Still, it might be worth a watch, and if you've never checked out my channel before here you go.

I hope you check out the video and I thank you for even looking at this if you happen to still glance at this. If you would like to see me post more here- Please leave a comment because I'm almost positive nobody remembers this blog exists. hahahaha

Thanks everybody!

Tits! -MT

Neon Brain Nails! Featuring Kleancolor and Cheeky Jumbo Plate D

Hi there! Soon the new episodes of The Walking Dead will be upon us! And so - clearly- I needed some nails Zombie me would be proud of. Truthfully, I tracked down and purchased this plate JUST for the brain stamp. It was hard to find. I paid too much. I have problems. This is my first attempt at a manicure with it! This is also my first time using the kleancolor polishes I picked up from amazon...Which I will Probably review at some point- after I've worked through a few more colors. And now.... ON WITH THE NAILS!

For this mani I started with everything here! And the Cheeky Jumbo stamping plate D.(obvie)

(20 neon pink, 24 Bikini Green,4 white,Konad special stamping polish in Black,Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear, 2 hardner)

Then I painted one coat of Neon Pink on my ring finger and thumb (because I felt like having two accent nails today) followed by one coat of Bikini Green on the rest of teh digits. It doesn't have to be perfect because the stamping is so large but if you have any super uneven spots- even them out. As you can see I followed up painting the nails with a nice smash into the table, smudging one- which I didn't fix and they still turned out just fine.

Got my stamping things ready....

On to the Stamping! So I decided to try a new polish (Kleancolor's white) with a new stamping plate.... a brave choice... or a dumb one. To start I picked my thumb...again, an iffy choice because it's a big nail. Still I stamped and ... like I would have guessed had it been anyone else doing it- only half the stamp worked. So I double stamped it...and got this. It's okay, we can fix it later.

It also looks completely gross and didn't stick to the entire nail. Not awesome. But completely fine after throwing on a layer of Hardener (which I only used because the nail was already wonky so if it made it worse I'd just re-do it.)

I did this on all ten nails with the same stamp and the same polish. I added a spider stamped using the Konad black polish and a spider I found on a random nameless ebay stamping plate I have, to the Neon Pink Accent nails. There are a lot of plates that have spiders, use whatever you can find/have already. This covered up... well, distracted from all the messed up bits. I tried a few clear coats to seal them on and settled on Sally Hensen Xtreme nails as the best top coat. No smearing and it's nice and shiny.

POOF! Zombie me is happy with these fantastic brain nails! Neon Neon Neon.

So there you have it! Hope you like it and forgive me for being so completely MIA. If you have any questions- leave them!
Thanks for looking!

Horror in the lipstick drawer!

There I was, going through all my makeups . Cleaning everything up. Sorting everything out. It was a grand ol' time. Until I met up with something that I honestly never ever in all of ever expected to see. A Geek Chic lipstick. Not just any lipstick, oh no, this one was special. This one... was alive.

Okay! It may be stretching it to say "alive" but when you look at it... squint a you see that... the little face and eyes and TEETH?!? No? Well then, maybe it's just an over reaction due to the fur I found on it. Yes, fur. Like that on a peach. A uniformly flocked tube of lipstick. *shudder*

Alrighty, we need a little information don't we, we do. I picked this up From Geek Chic In the first or second time I ever shopped with them. I can't find the info (I'm still looking) on exactly when I picked it up- but it was during the sale a few months ago when they were changing the tubes or some such thing, and had discounted a few colors to get rid of them and make room for the new stuffs. This color is Toxic Unicorn. No pun intended.

I took this out. Love it. It's green. LOVE. I tried it on and didn't really care for the formula. It was fine. The formula had some little pigment bits in it but I thought it was fine. It just didn't work for what I wanted it for. After I tried it, I put it away in a drawer and forgot all about ever having owned it... like you do.

SO! Yesterday morning I came across it. I love to look at my makeup, it's a weird little thing I think most of us do. Sit and look at sparkly pigments and smell all the smells... try on all the lipsticks. It was like Christmas! I had forgotten all about it. I was so excited! I opened it and ... saw the fur. There are no words for how completely freaked out I was... how freaked out I am. What in the actual fuck could have done this?

I do not know what the brown part is. But when I scratched out that little cross section, I started from the bottom and scraped up so it wouldn't get any of the brown bits in it.... but it already had the brown bits in there- so there's that.

I'm leaving these pictures here for you to see. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this. Has anyone had anything like this ever happen in all of ever? I have quite a few things from Geek Chic that are great.... but this really scares me. If I had been putting this on my lips, more than the one time, whatever the fuck is making this fuzz would be ON MY LIPS. So I'm feeling a little over whelmed.

Okay, so I've contacted Geek Chick about this and will update this post when they get back to me. If you have any questions for me about my tube - or for them - please leave them in the comments. Maybe this is something that happens? Have you ever seen this? I'd love to know. Thanks.

Also, it might not be a bad idea to check your lipsticks just to see if they are growing.



Here is the email from Geek Chic cosmetics about the dreaded fuzz:

Hey Robin,
We've never seen anything like that before. Your order was 9 months ago so there has been some time for things to go awry. We use vitamin e and grapeseed oil for their preservative properties. In JoySticks, the wax that they are mostly made of is not generally conducive to bacteria or mold. The discoloration looks to be on the surface that made lip contact, so our guess is bacteria transfer and subsequent incubation in a sympathetic environment over the course of many months. We sanitize our mold between pours and wear gloves/masks throughout the process so it's highly unlikely the product was received already contaminated.
You also have the old style tube that we upgraded from about 6 months ago, which allowed much more air in and around the stick (and were just generally a nuisance!) I'd imagine the new tubes do a much better job of insulating the product from the elements. When the lipstick is exposed to oxygen (which happens everytime you pull the cap off), bacteria can feed and grow. That's what caused the discoloration. Once bacteria has begun to grow you can become sick from it. It is recomened that you keep JoySticks no longer than 6-8 months (and this is true of other brands' as well: (
So, your JoyStick has naturally run its life cycle. We will consider adding a "best used by" indicator to our lip products if this continues to be an issue. Given this is the first time we've heard of this and never want anyone to walk away unhappy we'd be happy to refund or replace your tube. Please let us know which you'd prefer. If you have any future questions or concerns, please email us.

In the interest of time I will sum up.
I put my dirty mouth all over their clean product and ruined all the makeups. I am responsible for knowing the shelf life of this product without their having to tell me. I should just go ahead and take full responsibility for my part in the fuzz, being that I purchased this lipstick and - the horror - put it on, of all places, my (apparently dirty whore) mouth. This fuzz is clearly what having ALL THE COOTIES does to lipstick. The fact is, Vitamin E and Grapeseed oil get old. We can't be bothered to educate you about how to use our products, and for how long. I'm annoyed having to even let you know that this lipstick fuzz is your fault, here's a yahoo link to let you know that you must be the only one in all of ever to keep a lipstick for over six months. You stupid dirty idiot. Seeing as you are so dumb we would like to give you your money back, better yet why don't you let us send you another one in our new and improved packaging... maybe you wont be so disgusting with the new one now that I have taken you to lipstick school. If I, and random people on yahoo, have not explained why this is your fault and not ours feel free to send me the questions you think of with your small brain. Don't hurt yourself.

xoxo Team Blameshift

Now let me go ahead and tell you what I think. I am a makeup artist. I bought this originally for my kit. I was going to USE THIS SHIT ON MY CLIENTS. If/When one of my clients became ill after using your fucking product whose fault would that have been? That a company would attempt to shift the blame onto a customer for not knowing what they CLEARLY DON'T FEEL OBLIGATED to put on the site and LABEL is INSANE."We will consider adding a "best used by" indicator to our lip products if this continues to be an issue." What do you mean "if"? If you run into any other morons like me? Anyone whose precognitive skills are as primitive and undisciplined as mine? Zero mention of the fact that the ENTIRE LIPSTICK had mold on it in ADDITION TO THE BROWN MOLD at the apparent lip contact point. For those of you who are counting, that's TWO new and exciting things to add to your nightmare bank! ALSO, in the scraped picture you can CLEARLY see that the brown mold is also evident INSIDE the shaft of the lipstick- not the tube mind you- the LIPSTICK.

At this point I am considering sending this out to a lab to see what exactly this fuzz is. It's the only way I can see of getting any real information about why this has happened... because clearly, this is disturbing.

This goes on your mouth. Think about that. Now read that email again. Let them know what you think. Email them here:



I see your "info" link and raise you this one.

"Some experts say 1-2 years. Others say up to 4 years. What everyone agrees on is that if it smells rancid, throw it out, it's spoiled. Extra tip: If you store lipstick in the refrigerator, it will last longer. Bonus tip: Want your lipstick to last longer..."

Mystie eye'd: Tom Servo!

It that time again! I have decided that this one has way to many looks to just be a one week run... and also... I worked a lot and had zero time to get around to posting.I'm working on it. In the mean time heeeeeeeeere's SERVO!

Servo is fantastic. Hard to describe without using the same old words and phrases. Honestly, how many times can you say "quick witted smart ass/asses" while describing any aspect or bot/person involved with this show? This series could easily have been called "Mst3k, a collective bot wit on ma'face"... the potential for typo's would have made for an interesting read. Where was I going with this? AH! Servo is fantastic and I was under a lot of self imposed pressure to make this look a good one.

Aaaaaaaaaand ma'duck face. (Ring hand painted my your truely by request from HellCatCosmo)

So that's Servo. Thoughts? Looks of your own that are Mst3k inspired? I'd love to see them! And I'll add links to them as them trickle in - so keep an eye out for that. I hope everyone has a great day and I hope you liked it! Thanks for Looking!

Here's what was used:

Revlon "custom creations" foundation in light/medium
Mac Mineralize blush in "Band of Roses"
Physicians formula" Happy booster" Bronzer

Two faced Shadow Insurance
Sugarpill - love+
Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
Random matte black shadow
Random matte white shadow
nyx dark brown shadow (for brows)
Maybelline Line Stiletto

Some random red that I don't remember ... ha!

Thanks Again!
tits! -Robin MT

Disclaimer: I bought everything myself. I'm not cool enough to have anyone send me free stuff. Ha!

Mystie Eye'd: Dr. Clayton Forrester

The man. The myth. The green framed evil scientist of our collective nerd girl DREAMS... Dr. Clayton Forrester! ((rim shot))
HiiiiiiOhhhhh! I found THIS and thought...yeessss. I was going to do a collective "Sirs" look- but I instead opted for a groovy bit of tribute to man who made it all possible. Where would our fettered nerd hearts be without him? Not on the satellite of love, that's for damn sure! ON TO THE LOOK!

I went obvie with the colors choices. I don't think it would be right to scour the depths of his dark evil soul to come up with an eyeshadow look ya know. Basic evil scientist colors - browns, greens, white. Had I taken time to try and retry different looks I may have been able to come up with something a little more sinister- I decided when I started that it would be totally random, not much forethought...just instinct!... this is kinda like... what the makeup his evil babysitter would look like if she was a long time fan of the project. Still, it's what I did and I stand by it hahaha I think it still does the job.

What I used!
Revlon "custom creations" foundation in light/medium
Mac Mineralize blush in "Band of Roses"
Physicians formula" Happy booster" Bronzer

Two faced Shadow Insurance
Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
Nyx pigment in Jade Pearl
Nyx Jumbo in Milk
Fyrinnae loose shadow in We're all mad here
Random Browns from a random neutral pallet
nyx dark brown shadow (for brows/ with nyx jumbo milk set with matte white for the streak)
Physicians formula shimmer strips liner (black for brown eyes)
Maybelline Line Stiletto

Nyx cream thing lip stuff I have to fill in later because I can't for the life of me remember the name. :)

And so ends another post. How am I doin? Am I missing anything? I wanted so much to find a Forrester green < -- Somebody make that. I think if I had ... maybe the sleek acid dealio I would have been able to match the green a little better. I even tried to mix a sort of bright green myself... fail. Anybody know of a good green for a look like this? Also! If anyone has done- or is planning to do- something like this with mst3k let me know- I like the idea of tossing a bunch of links to similar looks on other blogs. Fan girls foreva! /ramble

Thanks for checkin it out! See you later on today hahaha I'm running a little behind tonight.
Cheers Evil Doers!
