Random New pretties

I have added a few colors that I had to hold off on for reformulating because I'm picky.

2 New Spectrum pots
Fiery Eyes Spectrum pot is a fire red with pink shimmer, it is Limited edition for Fall/Halloween.
This one is not vegan, it does contain Carmine. (Which also makes it a wee bit more expensive)
Hfb Spectrum pot (Hooray for boobies....long story)
Hfb is a shimmering nude beige perfect for neutral looks and daily wear.

Danger sox Eyeshadow is a core color.
A gorgeous deep red merlot metallic with multicolor shimmer.
Danger Sox was inspired by the amazing Frances Danger and her awesome socks
Hardcore Lips- Deception is a pink toned nude with golden shimmer
(Thank you Nymphette for your pictures)
Hardcore Lips- Robot Love is a clear base with silver shimmer and holographic glitter
and is scented with cupcakes!
Left: Robot Love alone   Right: Robot Love over Bane
Robot Love was made for Christie because she is a yummy cupcake!

I hope you love these as much as I do!

Upadtes and TAT

Just a few updates on the goings on of Evil Shades

First the current TAT (turn around time) is temporarily 5-7 business days
due to a shipment of defective sample containers. I am currently waiting on a new shipment that should be here by next Monday and have ordered a small amount from a more expensive supplier that is quicker and those should be here tomorrow.

Hardcore lips tubes will be changing to a new tube in September.
I will be selling off the last of the original tubes and then the new tubes will start. The new tubes hold the same amount of product so there will be no price increase. The new tubes are skinnier and longer than the current and I am so happy that the doe-foot applicator reaches the very bottom of the tube.

I will also be removing the Ingredients page as soon as I get the ingredients lists set in each individual color/product listing. So it will be easier to find the information and less confusing, I hope.

And there will be lots of new colors coming for Fall!

3 New Deviant Lipsticks

I have just added 3 new shades to the Deviant lipsticks!

(there was going to be 4 but after looking at the pictures #4 was a little patchy so I will re-work the formula)

Stormy is an unusual silvery purple base with a green shift that looks anything from grayed purple with green shimmer, metallic lilac with shifts of green to a storm of purple, green and blue.
It will change depending on the lighting and skin tone.
Can you see why I chose the name?
Stormy is priced a little higher due to the amount of shifting colorant it takes to make this as gorgeous as it is. I wish pictures showed it's shift better. $1.50 for sample size and $5.00 for full size tube.

Caged Gypsy is a new formula I have been working on and the first of a new
series of "suede" finished Deviant lipsticks. It is a matte finish, it has no shiny or gloss, but since this does have shimmer I know some do not consider that matte so I'm calling it suede.
Caged Gypsy is a beautiful glowing rose shade that is very hard to describe as it looks so very different depending on your skin tone yet it so far compliments every tone I've seen it on.
You can see The Art Is Makeup's Swatches HERE
And Miss Jupiter of The Girl with the Shapely Wheels (I love her blog name) HERE
As well as mine above and on the site to see how it changes to suit it's wearer.
Why the name Caged Gypsy? It makes me think of a beautiful and free spirited woman that even in a cage cannot be contained or tamed.

Last is a by request shade that has alluded me for a while
Devious Virtue is a Nude lip color with a soft pink violet undertone that makes it work well with most skin tones and is rich enough in pigment to even block out my natural dark lip pigmentation.
You can see my natural lip color at the very edge of my top lip (I used a clear lip liner which I don't think is really needed) There is a very subtle gold shimmer that I can only see in direct sun.
It photographed more pink than it is in real life. Honestly it nearly matches my skin color.
The name "Devious Virtue" is very simple. the definition of devious is- Departing from the correct or accepted way. The definition of Virtue is- Behavior showing high moral standards. Sometimes going against what is by the normal standard considered right IS the moral thing to do. So a play on words that some might take as calling one immoral is truly an explanation of a different way of being of high moral standards.
I may not always spell them correctly but I have an abnormal love and understanding of words.

Samples of Caged Gypsy and Devious Virtue are $1.25 and full size tubes are $4.25

New Site

The move to the new host is finally finished!

I still have some minor tweaking to do and I'm getting Ingredient lists added as I can.

The fancy new background and header are being redone so they will work on the site, hopefully it will be up

soon....really you'll love it!

If you spot any errors or missing info, pics etc. Please let me know and I'll fix it.

And YAY....I can do coupon codes now, so no more refund sales!

The first coupon code is for 15% OFF Code: ALLMOVED

Discount expires 8-8-11

Some changes that you might have missed during the move:

Shipping is now a flat $4.00 no matter where on Earth you are!

On the new host there is no forum or members. I am looking at options to have something similar.

Also there is no attached blog so Blogger it is and since I blog anyway I prefer this format.

Feel free to offer any suggestions and Thank You all for being the best customers ever!
