    Product Information - Hi Fi Shadows Containing BISMUTH OXYCHLORIDE

    I'm posting a series of product information posts, as I receive tons of questions about which eyeshadows contain what.  Up until now, I hadn't compiled any lists...so I was having to retype it over and over again in response to each email I received.  Well, no more massive list-typing for me!!!  :)  I'm posting it here for all to see.  I'll also be putting links to these on the side bar for easy access.

    Anyway...here is the very short list of the shadows containing BISMUTH.  None of my other products contain this ingredient.



    • Sweet Dreams
    • Universe of Fear

    Yep...That's it.  :)

    Posts showing which ingredients contain carmine and dyes are soon to follow.  Also, I will be posting a list of which colors are not approved for use on the lips.  :)  Please let me know if you have any questions!!!  Feel free to email me at hificosmetics@gmail.com!

    I'll be updating these lists as I create new shades so they'll remain current.


    SPRING SALE!!!

    That's right...more FREE STUFF!!!

    Why do I always do these types of sales instead of "25% OFF" or whatever?  The answer is easy.  TIME.  When I do sales for a certain percentage off or something, Etsy requires me to do one of two things...  I must go in and revise the prices of EVERY SINGLE ITEM in my shop...which takes FOREVER...  OR, I have to ask each and every customer to wait for a revised invoice on every order that comes in.  This takes away from the time I have to fill orders and get them out the door in a timely manner.  So, as a favor to you (and myself), I just let you guys get free stuff instead.  :)

    Anyway...as for the sale...  Buy any TWO Hi Fi Shadows (my most popular item by FAR) and GET ONE FREE!!!  Also, you can buy any TWO Spotlight Lip Glazes (newness!) and GET ONE FREE!!!  What a deal, right?  Just mention coupon code SPRINGSALE along with your free items in the message section at checkout.

    I'm running this sale until...*drumroll please*...the END OF APRIL!  That's right...a whopping SIX WEEKS!!!

    Just remember, my order volume gets a little crazy when I do these sales, so keep in mind that it may take longer to get your order out the door.  As always, if you have any question on the status of your order, do not hesitate to contact me.  :)

    Speaking of contacting me...  If you email me at hificosmetics@gmail.com, you are more likely to get a prompt response, because I can easily reply to emails using my phone when I am away from my office.  Etsy convos usually have to wait until I'm home and focused strictly on that.

    ***NOTE:  PLEASE do not put your free items in your cart, as I will have to send you a separate revised invoice, which takes away from time I could be filling orders.  Just type in the names of the free items in the message section along with the coupon code.  Thanks!***

    Anyway...let me know what you think!!!  Anything in particular you plan on purchasing during this sale?  :)

    Hands Off My Shamrocks!

    Okay...I saw this shirt in Hot Topic, and I wanted it SO badly...  It would have been quite hilarious, as I usually do everything I can to try and conceal and/or minimize my 38F breasts.  Something inside me was BEGGING me to buy it, however, I couldn't really justify spending $22 on a t-shirt that I only get to wear once a year, that I hopefully won't fit into next year.  (I'm trying to lose some poundage, and hopefully, some boobage along with it.)  SO...my will power triumphed for once!!!  I just figured I would enjoy the IDEA of owning it.  :)



    My husband keeps hoping that my losing weight won't shrink "the twins", but I'm desperately hoping they'll go down at least two to three cup sizes.  I'm currently 5'9" and a size 12/14, so it's not like I'm an enormous person...  I just have giant boobs.  Go figure.

    Anyway...enough Shamrock-Boob talk...  :)  Here's my FOTD for St. Patty's Day, which is probably the whole reason you're here in the first place, right?  *xoxo*



    My lipstick and gloss had pretty much worn off at this point...  But just in case you were wondering, I wore a random nude lipliner and Maybelline Color Sensational lipstick in Caramel Kiss with Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush lipgloss in Creme Femme in the center of my bottom lip.  (By the way, if any of you know where I can get more of the VS Creme Femme gloss, PLEASE let me know.  It's my absolute favorite.  I'm working on creating a dupe for it, but I haven't succeeded yet.)



    I was SO impressed with how well these shadows wore together.  As you can see, there are a couple that aren't in the shop yet (because I've been so swamped, I haven't been able to take swatch photos of them yet), but I promise they are coming soon!  :)  I believe "Prophecies & Curses" is the only one that doesn't have photos taken yet.  "Revanche" and "Raw Shock" are ready, I just haven't gotten around to listing them (along with a ton of other awesome new colors).  :)

    I applied my eye makeup as follows:

    1.  Applied LA Splash Splash Proof Sealer to entire lid area up to crease.  (I've never used Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy, but I'm thinking that this does the exact same thing, as I always use it to amp up my shimmery/glittery shadows...and trust me, they DO NOT budge.  I've even pulled a few all-nighters using this stuff and still had perfect eye makeup when the sun came up!  By the way, I do have some Pixie Epoxy on the way!)
    2.  Using a medium, semi-stiff brush, I pressed "Raw Shock" on the center of my lid, leaving the inner and outer 1/4 bare.
    3.  Using a small, stiff brush, I lightly applied "Adeste Fideles" to the inner corner and around the tear duct.
    4.  I then applied "Prophecies & Curses" to the outer corner, using a firm rounded brush.
    5.  "Revanche" was then applied lightly to the outer "V", and into the crease about 3/4 of the way in using a small crease brush.
    6.  I then used a flat, fluffy brush to apply "Champagne Toast" as a highlight.
    7.  After applying my highlight, I took a liner brush and applied "Prophecies & Curses" to my lower lashlines.
    8.  I applied L'Oreal Extra Intense liquid pencil in black to my waterline, and Blinc Kiss Me liquid liner to the top lashline, creating a "wing" or "cat-eye" effect.
    9.  I then applied Ardell Demi Wispies and Smashbox Bionic mascara, and...  Ta-done!



    As most of you know by now, my face makeup is typically very minimal.  I don't wear foundation, except on special occasions, so usually I just go bare with a little concealer and of course, blush.  :)

    Anyway...hope you guys enjoyed this look!!!  I'll be getting all the eyeshadows that I used listed VERY soon!

    Smoochie boochies!


    Hi Fi Shadow Swatchfest!!! Purples & Pinks!

    I FINALLY found my lost SD card so I can post some more of these.  I was seriously freaking out.  TONS of hours of photos are on it.  But anyway...glad to have it back, and here are the purple/pink swatchies!  :)  Enjoy!!!
