Orglamix 30 Days, 30 Ways… I WON!!!!!!!

Updated 03/05/2011 & 03/06/2011

This is strictly my own personal opinion about the matter. All material uncovered was done through a public google internet search with a few different keyword entries.

Orglamix: Due to information uncovered and revealed about this company, I cannot in good conscience or good faith recommend or support this reportedly handmade, organic small business. If information had been disclosed prior to discovery by the shop owner herself, I would have no problem with continuing to purchase. Regretfully, the scope of the lie and how many different people it could have potentially affected and hurt leaves me no other choice than to say this is not an honest company to do business with.

I can’t believe it!
I’m in SHOCK!
The last time I won something tangible that I could touch and feel, and was an actual prize… Was a bottle of wine when I was 17! I figured my luck since then has been all downhill from there, since every contest I had entered… I didn’t win. Not even close. Never in the Top 5, never-mind the Top 3. Heck, I don’t even think I got a Top 10. LOL

I signed on this morning, resigned to taking tallies for the contest I’ve been running for the past 12 days, and I nearly dropped my sister’s MacBookPro when I saw my news feed…

 

Not to fear, the computer is quite safe and didn’t end up on the floor…
After realizing this, I of course nearly flipped my lid. I was so overwhelmed with excitement and giggles, I thought I was going to burst! Ok, maybe not that excited… But it was definitely a great giddy feeling. I announced the winner of the Happy New Year contest I ran alongside Holly from Moi Minerals Cosmetics, and decided I needed to count what I already have. 

Yes, I’ve been hearing “She’s got all that makeup up in her room… All of it!” for months. It’s kind of the running joke around here- I’m the cosmetics freak, and my “makeup station” is now the it place to be. Ha ha ha! It’s the table top of my long dresser, with a large mirror, with two lights set up on either side. I just discovered I have a white balance setting on my movie editor, in addition to my camera one… LOL, no more videos to come out with me looking like either an Oompa-Loompa or a funny yellow creature. Or worse yet…. A smurf! Yes, my Mom feels bad when she needs to come in and do her makeup… But my sister, well she just comes right on in. That’s the point- even though I have all this makeup encroaching everywhere on my dresser- I share! They can use most of it! I don’t mind! The lights going on before sunrise kinda makes me wake up cranky though lol

I sat down tonight, though, and decided to figure out just how many colors I have from Orglamix. Soooo… I took a seat on my bed, surrounded by furries (aka the three kittens and their Mama. “Pinkie” is now “Libby”, and lives with her new owner! I’m sad, but happy too! She’s getting along quite well!) With the furries curled up and keeping me quite warm, I started to count… And count… And sort… Rearrange and put in chromatic order… The whites, to champagnes, to pinks, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, purple, brown, silver and black. I need order. I like everything organized nicely!

I stepped back and did a double take. I’ve been purchasing colors for nearly 2 years (I’m pretty sure it’s been that long…) and I didn’t think I had this many in my collection. They were on my dresser, in a box, some here and there… Everywhere in my room… And I was shocked. 70 colors. Brimstone is a double- but I have a 5g jar that the colors were first sold in, and the newer 8g jar.

Holy crap, I have 70 colors!
I pretty much think that with the exception of the new colors I got for Christmas, that I’ve worn each color on my eyes! That’s a lot of makeup wearin, especially for a color fiend like me… Ha ha ha!!!

So, my collection consists of:

8g jars-

**Snow
Marshmallow
Vanilla Birthday Cake
Spark
Aurora
Moonstone (closest to dupe of Phantasmagoria!)

PHEW!

I’d say I have an Orglamix addiction problem… But the colors do not yet surpass my collection of shoes… Ha ha ha!!!! Now if I were to tell you ALL the different colors I have in my mineral collection, then of course… I’d hands down be a Mineral Makeup Maven with an Addiction To Color.

What cosmetics do you use?
What’s your favorite color?
What’s your favorite color scheme?

    Thanks for posting that about Moonstone, I missed out on Fantasmagoria!

    Like I said, I'm glad you're the one who ended up winning – some of the girls had armies of people voting for them, but didn't have nearly as good entries as you did. If that makes sense.

    So, what are you going to tell Cheri – "here are the colors I already have"? Or will she just pick out 75 randomly?

  • Snarky P

    Thank you so much Erin!
    I had a lot of votes, but then after thinking about it… I stopped asking people to vote for me because it was like- they're not involved in this contest, and they didn't give a rats-butt about it… Why should it be based upon popularity!?

    I think Cheri just picks them randomly… Which I don't mind :)

    I did this count because I wasn't sure exactly what I had… I surprised myself!
