Halloween is Better Than Christmas

(promotional samples, donations, and general awesomeness ahead)


It is that time of year, kids. Spooky things, ghoulish delights...and glitter. SO. MUCH. GLITTER. This year is a little different, because I am all on my own this year for Halloween...so I rounded up a few pals and decided to throw a party...and you're all invited!

Bedlam Beauty Halloween Giveaway

beware! there is a horrifying number of pictures in this post.

The Giveaway is closed. Congrats to Marie G.

I started planning this back in...July? Yeah, that sounds right. And then, of course...I forgot about it completely once school started. I'm good for that. So this isn't as omfgamazing as I intended...but I think I have one special thing that will make up for that.

OPI My Vampire is Buff from Chez Francince
holycow thanks to Chez Francine for hooking me up with this swatch!
Baroness X Euryale


About that unique shade...There are exactly two bottles in existence guys. I have a mini that I used to swatch, and the full size pictured here below. It has never been opened. You will be the only mortal to ever wear this shifting blue shade.

Euryale is a blue-to-green duochrome with a bright purple flash. It has a dusting of cool flakies and holo glitters. It is a light formula, and I used three coats + Seche Vite for all the pictures here. I think this would be an excellent layering shade over a black/navy/violet, but it is easily and comfortably built up to wear on its own. It is such a subtle shifter, I swear I took fifty pictures, and no two show the exact same color. 

Frustratingly stunning. You'll be the envy of the graveyard!

  4. Ha! I can enter since I didn't provide anything for this one! BAM.

    If I had unlimited time and funds, I would be something super extravagant like Edward Scissorhands, with bush sculpture, or maybe the red queen, or Dany WITH DRAGONS. Real ones, obvs.

  15. I think it would be fun to be either a mermaid, unicorn, or fairy, and just go crazy with the sparkles. Then, of course, I'd dress up my little Peanut as my mini... but she's gonna be a little lion this year, so my options are a little limited!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I was thinking about going as Wendy from The Shining because I'm a little twisted like that.

  17. My favorite costume was the Tin Man back in the '80s. Silver tights, jacket, shoes, makeup, and a spray-painted funnel as a hat, yo!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I would dress up as Elvira. I just love her look. Is that weird? It's okay if it is.

    P.S. That Baroness X exclusive is F'ING awesome!

  24. Several years ago I was Dawn Campbell (Naomi Watts' character from I <3 Huckabees). It was my favorite costume and I'd totally do that again. Even though no one ever knew who I was. It made me happy. Thank you for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I would go as a war boy from Mad Max if I wanted to bother with a bald cap!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Those colors are gorgeous! And I love the ideal of being the "only mortal" to wear a polish named after an immortal!

    ReplyDelete
  31. What great prizes in this giveaway. I have no idea what Id dress up as. Id love to do something sexyish since Im normally a sweats and tshirt kind of gal but I know I couldnt pull it off and feel awkward all night.

    ReplyDelete
  32. You've been holding out on me lady! Amazing giveaway! I'm not much of a dresser-upper, something to do with being a socially awkward introvert....blah blah. However, if I did feel the urge to dress up I'd go as one of two things: The OG Bride of Frankenstein (I dressed up as her once when I was about 10, it was badass) or some type of old Hollywood starlet like Mae West.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Thank you, this is a fantastic Halloween treat!

    ReplyDelete
  34. If I had the time and funds I would definitely be Lady Loki for Halloween! Thanks for the sweet giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I need to change my ethnicity so I can be Jasmine for Halloween. Ahhhh that'd be the BEST!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I think I would dress up as a a steampunk faerie if money was no object. Or one of the Doctors.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Ok, so I'm doing something rather odd for Halloween. My partner and I are flying to Salt Lake City Utah for the day-well, more like a 6 hour layover-just for the hell of it (and because we scored some practically free plane tickets and that was the only city that had a long enough layover time to actually leave the airport). I'm and atheist, he's Catholic, and we are visiting Temple square. Surely there's an inappropriate costume idea somewhere in there. Any ideas?

  38. If I was dressing up I would be Dorthy from the Wizard of Oz! Any chance to wear red sparkly heels!!
