SixtyFiveRoses, the color!

****Update. I do still have this item for sale. I made the initial deposit to our Great Strides team for $127.89. If you're interested in purchasing some, send me a message!****




This is my favorite fundraising event yet! I put my head together with Lela Warren, the proprietor of Glittersniffer Cosmetics to come up with the perfect color to raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis. Glittersniffer is a fabulous, funkadelic, high impact line of mineral pigments that are completely vegan, handmade, small business goodness. Win/win!

The color we came up with is a vibrant royal purple that sometimes toes the line between itself and blue, packed to the gills with shimmer and holographic microglitter (teeny-tiny iridescent glitter that catches the light like diamonds).

I have been playing with the stuff for a couple of days and it is versatile as all get out. Being that it's a pure pigment, you can add it to just about anything. I mixed some in with my favorite clear polish and had a rad manicure. Mixed 'er up with some brow gel and dabbed on a wicked intense eyeliner. If my hair were lighter you can bet it'd be testing it out in hair gel. I will add more pictures of my experiments as they come, but I am anxious to get this up, so I'll just start with these two looks.

Subtle...




Dramatic!






My makeup skills are much like the rest of my life, experimental and haphazard. If anyone wants to send in their looks after ordering I will be thrilled to share them too.


Every single penny I make from this is going to the CFF through our Great Strides team, Hope for Jackson- including my initial investment. If it is successful I'll be ordering more and coming up with new colors. Lela is an amazing, huge hearted person who was more than happy to give me an incredible deal to help raise money and I really hope to work with her again.
