I received some fun packages in the mail recently… including a box of Sugarpill makeup from Shrinkle (Amy Doan)! Her newly-launched cosmetics line is all about vibrant colors and was the official brand for Hello Kitty’s anniversary party.

With a sponge, I swept FlamePoint orange over my lids and ButterCupcake yellow along the inner crease (both are pressed eyeshadows). I applied Asylum red under my eyelids and Tiara silver along the inner crease (these are loose powders that sparkle like gems). The shadows went on smooth and strong; I love how the colors ring out even from a distance. If you’re keen to try Sugarpill Makeup, all products can be ordered online here.

I traced the edges of my lips with an old grey eye pencil, and filled the center with Too Faced tropical pink lip gloss. Voila: sparkly shine, without losing your Goth!

I find painting my own nails very relaxing, while a salon manicure is a waste of time/money and not enjoyable… am I alone in this? I applied a coat of candy apple red, pink glitter on top, and three white dots using nail art polish from Daiso.

Komodokat sent me kawaii jewelry — wahhh! I adore the kitty-candy hair clips and pin, happy tooth ring, and dim sum charm bracelet (you know I’m a fan of anything with a cute face on it). Komodokat’s accessories and charms are 100% handmade and affordable; come browse the Etsy store and fall in love.

My red dress is by People’s Market, a young London brand I’m rather fond of. (My HBO party dress was by the same label.)

people market's london, people market cute indie dresses, british women hippie dresses, style bubble, floral dresses summer 2010, cutest brands ladies flowing light dresses, modern contemporary womens fashion, english rose beauty street style

The dresses are flirty and have high-fashion elements, such as shirred sleeves, asymmetrical collars and — yes — stars on the hem.

The shoes are from my friends at London Underground (remember my shoe factory tour?). The striking pendant necklace is by Gabriel J. Shuldiner. He generously sent me Black Chunk beauty from his new Fleurs Du Mal collection: “one-of-a-kind, hand-sculpted and hand-painted, using both modified and recycled materials.” Post-modern, post-punk, and simply stunning. Gabriel’s latest collection is available at select NYC boutiques and by custom order.

The next time you’re in a shopping mood, I encourage you to support indie designers like the delightful artists/entrepreneurs featured above. Why buy something blah from the mall when you can get a hand-crafted, original knockout?

Coming up: more LA adventures, and a makeup tutorial video featuring Sugarpill makeup. (Have you heard of or tried Shrinkle’s makeup line?)

I have a feeling you’ll LOL at my latest CNNGo article: Asia’s 10 most viral memes knock out their Western counterparts (Epic Beard Man, Chuck Norris Quotes and more).

    Ooh, haven’t heard of that makeup brand before~

    Also, yes, I also find doing my own nails to be really relaxing! I’m quickly developing a hardcore nail polish monkey…XD

      Every time is a chance to experiment with a new nailpolish technique! I look forward to it haha

    Woo! I’m going to have to stock up on Sugarpill makeup. :]

    • Posted March 18, 2010 at 8:43 pm | Permalink

      It comes in really cute boxes too!

  6. Posted March 18, 2010 at 8:17 pm | Permalink

    haha…I keep hearing rave reviews on Sugarpill makeup, so that’s on the future to-buy list. As for the charms, I’ve just gotten into polymer clay myself and those are so much fun to make!

    • Posted March 18, 2010 at 8:44 pm | Permalink

      Oh cuteeee… I’ve never worked with polymer, but the results are so charming.

      • Posted March 20, 2010 at 3:42 am | Permalink

        You’d love it if you try it–very addicting. lol.

  7. Posted March 18, 2010 at 8:17 pm | Permalink

    I’m glad I’m not the only one outside of YouTube that likes Sugarpill. I bought 2 pigments and 2 of their palettes~ They are so amazing O_O
    Does the People’s Market have an online store?

  8. Posted March 18, 2010 at 8:36 pm | Permalink

    OMG Yes! More high-pigmented, fun-colored cosmestics that are vegan-friendly! Well, most of them, anyways, but most is waaaay better than none!

    Looks like all of the loose powders are safe, and the blue, purple, yellow, and green pressed powders are too! Yes Yes Yes! I prefer my non-neutral colors to be bold and high-pigmented. I’m one of those so-pale-she’s-kinda-transparent-in-some-places girls, and I’m more drawn to cooler colors, which just make me look like I got beat-up or have an infection or something! No one wants that!

    So I have Lime Crime, Urban Decay, Aromaleigh, and now Sugerpill to drool over and dream about! Woo-Hoo! *Boogie Dances*

      I use all of those brands ahah — they’ve made me much more interested in the possibilities of makeup than I was a few years ago. It’s really fun to experiment!

    Wahhh! Thank you for sharing Komodokat! I have been drueling over Q-pot jewelry for months, and dying a little inside each time that the Kawaii designs are pretty much out of my price range..but Komodokat has totally solved that! I think their jewelry is just as cute, and whimsical as Q-pot and I can actually afford it!! Bonzai! =^-^=
