Persephone Minerals: Sailor Moon Collection Swatches

Hey all! So sorry I haven't posted in a while - Thanksgiving was muy busy and when it wasn't, I was doing some serious vegging. I had a great vacation. I left Wednesday night (one of the busiest traveling days, second to Sunday, which is the day people return from Thanksgiving) and just cruised all the way back to the NE coast. For the first time in many years, my parents took off from work to celebrate with my brother and I. I mean, we don't normally celebrate Thanksgiving so I guess this was really just a reason for the four of us to veg together. :D

Not only that, my dad put together a hot pot dinner. He doesn't like doing it because it's not very filling for him but I *love* it. :D So happy! He even prepared a bunch of items (ie: ingredients, the pot <-- COME TO MAMA) so that I could do hot pot back here.

I miss those guys. :(

I'm currently trying to make it through all the food my dad prepared for me. The mean is a beast in the kitchen. I wish I had his mad skills.

ANYWAY. Onto the much-awaited Persephone Minerals Sailor Moon swatches!

She even sent me a sample of their new Rock 'N Roll Reindeers collection:

In addition, I got me some non-beauty items. From Tempting Tart, here is a sampler set of their awesome soy wax tarts. I've never used wax tarts before so I figured samples were the best way to go. Plus, it's SOY:

I actually got 17 tarts - they sent me a freebie, Warm Orange Gingerbread. Before taking a picture, I wanted to use one. So while I was packing (yes, I pack rather quickly; 1 hr tops is all that's needed), I lit the raspberry pomegranate one:

I was originally searching around for the store Painted blogged about once but I couldn't find the post again, nor could I remember what the store was. Then, a few days after I ordered from Tempting Tarts, she tweeted about them. I was all "YAY!" and got me ANOTHER set:

I don't think these guys are soy-based but nevertheless, they smelled awesome in the box. I guess the melting temperature must be really low because the wax is super soft. I will post a review of these babies once I've got through all the scents.

On Persephone Minerals...what are your favorite colors?

Mine are Moon Cosmic Power, Silver Moon Crystal Power Kiss, and Moon Crystal Power. I experienced quite a bit of fall-out with the first three colors I swatched even though I used Pixie Epoxy. Eternal Sailor Moon has some serious glitter-age going on.

On Tempting Tarts and Country Home Scents, have you tried them before? What do you think about wax tarts? Are they better/worse than scented candles? Include anything else you can tell me.

Shipping was moderately quick for Tempting Tart. I ordered on 11/14 and received my package 11/24. Shipping for Country Home Scents was supah fast. I ordered 11/21 and received these on 11/26 - 11/27.

so many awesome things in this post! I want a few of those shadows, the moon crystal somethingorother that looked awesome, the sailor moon with the glitters in it.
My tarts were a bit soft too but I've only had one other before so I'm not sure what the hardness should feel like. I do loves them :)

Lady In A Top Hat said...

Haha I don't know what the hardness is either so for all we know, this is prob very normal. Ugh, I keep on getting a whiff of the fresh strawberries tart - it smells AWESOME.

LOVE the look of Usagi, Sailor Moon, Moon Crystal Power, Starlight Honeymoon Therapy Kiss and Rainbow Moon Heartache.

People are seriously tempting me to buy one of those tart burner melty things XD

Lady In A Top Hat said...

It smells SO good. The best part about the samplers is that it's cheap and you get to try all these scents. :D

Heather / Eyeconic said...

Rainbow Moon Heartache looks awesome!

I want taaaaarts *drool* I better get that tarm warmer I asked for for Christmas!

Lady In A Top Hat said...

Lol I got mine for $1 at the Dollar Store though I may need to invest in a more expensive one. I don't like the way it looks but it does it's job well enough for the time being. :D
