Yummy411: FOTD and My Stash (most of it)

Hey all! Ready for the weekend? Be sure to keep up with me via Twitter as I'm visiting NY for Fashion Week with Total Beauty for the first time. Yes, I'm a newbie and you'll hear all about it!

Here's an FOTD I did, in an attempt to break away from my every day colors (most recently the Tempting Quad, lol) especially my beloved crease/transitional color, Soft Brown e/s. I was on my way to my son's Back to School Night with a sinus infection in full effect and a metro route that's not made for wimps. Sometimes I feel like I need a Red Bull to face some of the public transpo highway traffic of people! (DC folk am I exaggerating? Metro Center, Gallery Place, L'Enfant Plaza during rush hour?) Nice time to try something new. Blech! I wasn't feeling it, but a lot of moms liked it. What do you guys think? (Nevermind the last pic. My face gave in to how I felt.)

  • Almay Illuminating liquid
  • MAC medium dark blotting powder
  • CoverGirl Queen Collection mineral bronzer


  • NARS LoveJoy blush



  • Oh Baby lipglass (still reigns supreme baby! hush all you naysayers!)

My Stash finally. Tine did a post a while back showcasing her collection. I've been meaning to do a post for her ever since. My pics and organization can't touch her's, but still... here it is!

The chest
The first drawer- mostly lip stuffs
Second draw- mainly eyeshadows
Third drawer- maily face stuffs (blush, powders, bronzers)
Fourth drawer- mainly polishes and some etceteras lol

Last and deepest drawer- all the etceteras... lashes, and some extra kit supplies

Yes, my economy sized brush cleaner-- had to have this stuff and is supposed to be in the bottom drawer, but I guess it's inconvenient for some people *cough*Toni*cough*

The mini chest just for face powders and some extra brushes outside of the main set

First drawer- I collect MAC MSFs and special casing beauty powders and bronzers

Second drawer- more msfs and beauty powders

Third drawer.. ummm same thing LOL

Well, there it is folks.. most of it that counts. The rest is in between my first mini train case, some soft train cases and 3 baskets. Have you shared your stash yet? Leave a link so we can check it out!

@ connie: thanks!! i need more organization though.. everythings spilling over at the top.

@ tine: thanks!!

@ slvrlips: thanks! i give it a 5 out of 5.. i haven't had much to compare it to for spot cleaning. mac i would always use for a real good wash. other drugstore brands have been straight up disappointing so.. =/ i would love to try cinema secrets though.

@ doa: thanks! why can't you use msf's?

@ mrs optimus: you're welcome! yes they are very handy and they come with wheels.. target!

@ tammy: ooohhh i'll take a look soon! thanks for sharing!

@ b: thanks!! lol.. yes girl. the brush cleaner is a must on jobs.. refill the little spray bottle ;)

@ alyssia: yes it does remind me of antifreeze too! i wasn't feeling the fotd really cuz of the crease color.. the marbled sea foam and garbage green just looked like puke lol but thanks!! in pics it doesn't look that bad lol

@ jamila: well i freelance here and there, so it's SUPER handy to have! yes stash porn!

@ fuzkittie: i'm sure my stash has nothing on yours!

@ (g): yeh, lol... a lot of times i'll do my makeup at the end of the day before picking up my son. i know ppl at aftercare wonder about me hahahaa!

@ mrs.lynne: thank you! yes i bought a big bottle, cuz i know i'll run out and forget to replenish.. so no excuses now! so you are on twitter? i'm not sure if i'm following you...

@ erin: thanks! oh baby is a black girl's OG HG lipglass! did that make sense... let's just say MAC stayed in biz from us buying oh baby and c thru lipglasses. ahahahaa!

@ pumpsandgloss: yes both of the sterlite bins are from target. boxes i mainly keep for cushioning purposes

@ shansopink: lol thanks. there are always those special few on the train.. but even worse are the ppl with earphones that play music like boomboxes!!

Glossy said...
