Perfume Review: Sugar & Spite Bathery

Okay, so my first indie perfume company was The Morbid The Merrier. I fell in love with many of the scents that I ordered, and I became a rabid fangirl. Much to my dismay, the shop closed down due to financial problems. However, more recently, Lysa the owner reopened as Sugar & Spite Bathery. She's slowly bringing back some popular scents from her TMTM line, and I just had to buy some samples of the ones I've never tried! (And you bet I'll be buying full bottles of the ones I DID try and loved, once they come back.)

HUGE Arcana Lot Haul!

I was lurking on Evil Enablers when I saw that someone was selling a lot of 11 Arcana full bottles for a ridiculous price of $50. I saw that someone else bought one of the bottles (there were two bottles of one scent), and then the OP offered the rest of the lot for $40.

HOLY SHIT. OF COURSE I HAD TO JUMP IN.

Swatches of most of Fyrinnae's Blushes!

After getting Enchanted and Nordic Angel (swatches and stuff can be seen here), I kinda got too excited and decided I'd get all of the blushes except for Enrapture (I owned Enrapture a few years ago and sold it off because it was too pigmented and hard to deal with).

Fyrinnae's blushes are pigmented, soft, and blendable. I really dig them. :D

Swatches after the cut!

Little Sparrow Cosmetics: First Impressions & Swatches



Little Sparrow Cosmetics is a relatively new shop that sells blushes, lip products, and eyeshadows. Her blushes are getting a lot of buzz over in the subreddit /r/Indiemakeupandmore, so of course I got intrigued. She carries unique colors like blue, maroon, lavender, and more. Definitely a good niche to fill because I'm allllll about color and putting it all over my face. :D (Her lip jellies, something like a really pigmented tinted lip balm, also are getting raves but I'm not much of a lip person.)

I finally placed an order during a small 15% off sale that occurred right as three new blush shades were released. I ordered the three new shades and one of the older shades: a full-sized jar of Foxglove and 3 mini sizes of Nightshade, Wolfsbane, and Lavender.

Current Indie Perfume Stash!

My entire makeup and perfume collection has inflated and deflated over the years, but at this point it has reached a plateau (there can only be so many things that I want before I purchase them all...). Anyway, today's post will be to show-off/display my indie perfume stash.

Even with my current number of indie perfumes, note that I've sold off around 20 bottles, 10 solids, and hundreds of sample vials over the years as well. And all of this just basically proves that I'm insane. Done.

Without further ado, here are some pictures!

A few Fyrinnae Shadows and their Possible Dupes - Swatches!

I've been meaning to do a side by side swatch comparison of some of Fyrinnae's shadows and some of their possible dupes from other indie companies. I know a lot of people rag on Fyrinnae for their "shitty" customer service, so a lot of people are always asking for dupes.

Most recently, there was another twitter fiasco and a bunch of people are saying they'll never shop again (see bottom of this post if you want to read my opinion; it's in white text), so hopefully these photos will be useful!
