New Nocturne Alchemy LE’s At The Rhinestone Housewife

It’s me again, hotties!  Now that I’ve quit my day job, you’ll never be able to get rid of me.  lol  Today I had the pleasure of unpacking the new delicious goodies from Nocturne Alchemy.   We’ve got LE Velvet Butters and a new *very* LE perfume oil.   As always these butters and the oil and meant to be layered and worn together or separately as you choose.    The butters are purposely lightly scented to not to clash with your chosen scent of the day.

Devil Cake Kobalt Perfume Oil

The perfume for Devil Cake Kobalt: Chocolate Cake, Chocolate Frosting, Sugar, Evil, Cocoa Dust, Kobalt Vanilla Orchid, Egyptian Musk and Vanilla Musk.

Did you read the scent list?  Yes hotties…..for you this is scented with pure evil.  What does evil smell like, you ask?   Interestingly enough it smells a lot like an expensive chocolate cake.


Devil Cake Velvet Butter

Chocolate Cake, Chocolate Frosting, Sugar, Evil and Cocoa dust.

Horchata ia a drink made from ground up rice along with sweet cinnamon sugar infused with almond milk and blended into Nokturne:Crystal as our ode to sweet Vanilla Musk celebrations!
Velvet Butter Information:
Velvet Butter, created exclusively for and requested by TheRhinestoneHousewife (because I love you guys and care about your skin.   :D)
Ancient Egyptians believed in taking care of their skin, so we created a butter to honour the Ancients and for the supple care for our skin.  Each Velvet Butter is perfumed with Nocturne Alchemy Perfume Oil.  We wanted to create alchemy with these butters, so you can take home one or all three of the butters and layer and combine with each other or with the perfume that is also exclusive.  Here are a few ways to combine the butters:
Each perfumed Velvet Butter is lightly scented, use of the perfume on top or alone will invoke an Ancient time and a purposeful time for the self to reflect or simply wrap yourself up in a beautiful, complimenting scent.
A drop of perfume on top of the butter (once butter is softly absorbed into the skin), and inhale.  Perfect for dry skin and wonderful through the summer months.
Velvet Butter ingredients:
Cacao Seed Butter, 2x Shea Butter, Camellia Sinensis (Japanese Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), De-ionized Aqua, Veg. Stearic Acid, Veg. Caprylic Tryglyceride, Veg. Glycerol Stearate, Allantoin of Comfrey, Disodium EDTA
Please do not ingest, and use within six months.   Best if stored in a dry cool place.

Darling Girl “Oh The Horror!” Swatches

Finally!  I finally have my grubby little hands on my Darling Girl, “Oh The Horror” LE collection.   I had to break into them, gaze stupidly at them all and swatch right away!  These are all inspired by classic horror and Susan took customer suggestions for names and colors.  I suggested Ripley’s Cat and Death By Unicorn.   These were all swatched over primer and photographed in direct sunlight.

First up with have Attack Of The 50 Foot Woman, Bad Ash, Bathed In Blood, Camp Blood and Creature From the Black Lagoon.   The standout for me was Bad Ash!



Next is Death By Unicorn, Frankenstein, Go Go Godzilla, Heads Will Roll and Here’s Johnny!   I can’t wait to wear Death By Unicorn and Frankenstein together!



Up next is I Am Pain, King Kong, Lonely Assassins, Monster Within and Pumpkinhead.   I love, love, love Most of these.   I’m a sucker for orange so Pumpkinhead will get a lot of wear.  I liked the out of focus photos because it showed all the sparkle.




And now there’s Ripley’s Cat, Seven Days Later, Sleep Kills, The Count, The Invisible Man and The Mummy.  Ripley’s Cat was one of the names that I suggested so of course I love it!



I found a lonely jar that I forgot and also wanted to swatch the GWP.   So here we have The Boogeyman and Inamorata.

Milani Runway Eye Primary Shadow Swatches

Swatched out for you is Milani Runway Eyes palette in the primary colors (#17).   I picked this up on a whim because of course I cannot resist bright, fun colored shadows.  These are pressed shadows in a long strip palette.  I swatched these over a primer and photographed under a bright light with no flash.

I found most of the colors pretty easy to work with except for the purple.   The purple color didn’t seem to have a lot of pigment to it and I had to really layer it and add more primer to get it to show as much as the rest of the colors.  Enjoy!
