I'm challenging myself to do an FOTD for all the new makeup I've bought for myself to be encouraged to use it and not let it collect dust. Slvrlips (bka Nikkia) is joining me, so check her out for more FOTD's. Any more takers? Are you gonna hold us to it?
Please excuse my horrid dark circles in the pic above. Is this how I look (the pic below)? Well, this is how I feel.
Since Fafi, I've become a paint pot fanatic!! I tried a paint pot out as a base before when they originally debuted around the Novel Twist collection and it creased on me, so I was anti paint pot. I tried it with UDPP this time around and bingo! I'm a paint pot whore. Wednesday was a dreary day (cold weather, PMS-ing) and all I wanted was a paint pot from my fave MAC store. I attempted to go, but that mission was busted. Not having the opportunity to get the paint pot just killed everything. LOL! So what paint pots should I get from the permanent line? I have Perky and I loooove it!I gave Mindy a visit. Can you tell? The brows aren't as symmetrical, but they are clean and that makes me super happy.
On new MAC collections: MSF Natural Loose Powders and Strobe
MSF Natural lovers listen up!
I was talking to a MAC MA last night. He pumped up the new loose MSF powders that are coming out. After all, the pressed MSF powders applied with a kabuki brush were supposed to be all that. So what could make the loose powders any better? He said that the loose powder with the sponge applicatior gives more coverage and a more even application. He told me that the pressed powders are more sheer and that the kabuki doesn't apply as evenly as the sponge would. Say it isn't so? His opinion or fact? I guess we'll have to wait and find out! For those of you that love your MSF Natural powder as much as I do, are you intrigued?
The Strobe collection (3/2008) is supposed to give us the Strobe Cream (that's already part of the permanent line), strobe lotion (that's not as pearly or thick as the strobe cream) and 5 Strobe lipglasses.
I didn't quite like strobe cream because I felt it was a tad to creamy/oily for my taste and I love the iridescent look (of course that list of shimmers and bronzers has grown immensely!). Strobe cream didn't offer up enough. To give you an idea of how much I love iridescent sheen, I love MAC's hyperreal foundation, adding the loose beauty powder and pigments as highlights or mixing them in foundation. Yum! [ETA] I'm most excited about the strobe lipglasses. How will they compare to the 3d lipglasses? I couldn't find one to really appreciate in that line, since I'm a huge fan of Palatial lipglass that to my dismay was an LE item and no longer available. I love the green iridescence in that (Hence, my love for the High Top l/s from Fafi.)
Grrrrr... all of those times I've gone to the drugstore and have taken pics of products, I have yet to go back and actually purchase something! I don't want to miss out on the sale!
My Big Idea
I want to make a monthly event of meeting up for makeup shopping or something makeup related and drinks/dinner (ha! If I can afford it afterwards.) I figure once a month, I can make it fun, splurge, and stay focused with a budget. I'm headed over to meetup.com. If you are in the area and are interested, sign up!
I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend! Got plans?
