Not one Sparrow earrings

I bought these lovely earrings back in March from Ina at NotOneSparrow on Etsy. A little while after the order was placed she sent me an email apologizing that my order had taken so long since she was waiting on a new shipment of the jewels used to make my earrings, as an apology she included an extra pair of earrings.

The customer service was great, the packaging was very pretty and even with the delay I did not find that the shipping took very long. The earrings were $16 and the shipping to Canada was $3.25.

Here are the pictures, I ordered the red hearts and she included the lilac ones for free.

I do plan on purchasing some more earrings from this shop in the future, they are really lovely.

I bought these a good while back during the Sugarpill Birthday sale, I know I'm super late! I've been so busy with University exams then job hunting that I haven't been able to dedicate time to the blog.

I know there are thousands of pictures of Sugarpill already out there but I still wanted to share my own haul. I am SO in love with these eyeshadows! I can't wait until Amy releases her new pressed shadows!

I decided not to do any swatch pictures since there are already soo many online already, I may add some later.

I also already had Goldilux but I decided to add it into my pictures anyways :)

That matte black is SO perfect! The only one I have difficulty with is Poison Plum (the purple one) it applies really dark on me, I can't get it to show up bright like some other bloggers can.

On the left is the Burning Heart palette (Flamepoint, Buttercupcake, Love+, Poison Plum).
On the right is the Sweetheart palette (Dollipop, Afterparty, Midori, Tako).
Loose shadows are Royal Sugar and Goldilux and the pressed shadow in the middle is Bulletproof.

I definitely prefer the pressed shadows over the loose.
