I've been wearing my McQueen shadows a lot. I like them by themselves, instead of trying to put all three color together. In my last video, I was wearing Haunting e/s over Other Worldly paint pot. I tried out my Nile e/s over Elektro Sky paint pot. I find that Nile is a lot more chalky than Haunting. Nile, in consistency, seems similar to Bang on Blue. If you can tell in the pictures I took, the shadow doesn't look as opaque as when I wore the Haunting e/s. Mind you, this was after a five hour shift at the restaurant. However, my eye shadow looked the same as it did when I applied it in a rush this morning. Oh well.
Another thing too is that for some reason, I broke out all over my nose. Not the extremely noticeable ones, but the ouchie, under the skin ones. I have no idea why that happened. I'm hoping it's from stress because the only new product I've been using on my face is MAC Prep + Prime Skin... it works great and helps the application of foundation. I'm seriously hoping it isn't from that, but for now I've put the primer away until my skin clears up.

Yesterday I went to the MAC store to hook some of my friends up with some makeup. I told them, it's not my fault if you get a makeup addiction!.... Well it kind of is... heheheh ;P My honie will be mad if his lil sister gets into makeup the way I am.... at least there will be more in the family like that :D Anyways, they bought eyeshadows, while I got the following....
I got a brush palette and three new blushes. Dollymix is one I've been lemming. Sunbasque is what my future-sister-in-law got (Phuong, the one in my party pictures) and it was used on me on my last makeover so I decided to get one as well. Then my friend Vega wanted Prism Blush because the MUA recommended it. It looks boring in the pan, but on her.... OMGOSH! Her cheekbones POPPED! It was delish.... so I got it :) The full-size 168 is uber soft, about 100% softer than the SE one I have... and the 227 is one I've wanted, it looks great for highlighting.
I bought the three pigments from the Antiquitease Color Collection. I don't have many pigments, but have tons of shadows so I think I'll be getting more piggies soon. I didn't buy one of the palettes because I don't find any of the colors truly unique.... I'm not sure if I want to drop $36 on colors that I can find a dupe of later. I just like the packaging :) I may end up waiting for the palettes to go on sale at a CCO, which is where I bought my Holiday '06 Intense Eyes Palette. I'd rather save my money for the pigments, sparkle eye liners, and cream shadows (I want them all!). My Graphblack Technakohl Liner ran out yesterday... may it rest in peace :) So I bought Smolder Eye Kohl (opthamologist approved for the waterline) to try it out and if I don't like it, I'll go back to my Graphblack. I also got Fascinating because I don't have a white liner.... so I can finally record my Mod Doll video now :D What else, oh Uppity Fluidline. This was just a whim purchase. Do I really need a gold fluidline? Will I ever wear it? We'll just have to see, but I do see it being a beautiful base :)
I received these amazing pigment samples from my sister :) If y'all want to get some great pigment samples, check out her blog here. I got pigment samples of Teal, Blue, Sweet Sienna, and Your Ladyship. I love them, thank you Nessa-babe! <3333 you!
On another note, I've become addicted to reading Dawn Yang's blog. I think she's gorgeous! And her lifestyle seems like it's a ton of fun! I have never known about her or Arissa until a reader commented about Arissa in my last post on Dawn Yang.
I looked at Arissa Friendster and I think she's also gorgeous! OMG and I love her style, she seems like she is pretty rich with all the high-end items she has... I'm not saying that's a bad thing, it seems like a nice life to live! Of course that will probably always be a fantasy of mine, to be rich without a worry in the world. I can dream right? But reality isn't bad either....
Anywhoodle, the reason I bring her up is because the commenter who gave me her link said that Dawn was trying to look like Arissa. After seeing Arissa's pictures, (only having seen Dawn's pictures first before finding about Arissa), I must say they do seem similar, but I don't think Dawn is trying to copy Arissa. I don't know, I prolly don't have enough info... but it doesn't really matter to me. I like both of their blogs & think they both are gorgeous. What I especially LOVE about them both is how the chunk up the deuces :) LOL of course I would love that! They seem to have amazing and fun lives, and I think it's fun how they share it with others.... but that's me.
Alrighty, enough babbling. I gotta sleep now, so good night!
