Remember this? I bought it. I LOVE it. It has fifty different eyeshadows in it, and DAMN. Do you know what I can do with FIFTY eyeshadows? A LOT. I can do A LOT. Unfortunately, I haven’t really had a chance to play with it as much as I would like (before, I like those ten extra minutes of sleep more than I like makeup), but the other night, I had the time and an excuse to get dolled up. It took me a couple minutes to decide where I wanted to go with my eyeshadow for the night because there are SO MANY OPTIONS. I’ll admit, I get a little overwhelmed thinking about all the looks I can create.
Eventually, I settled on the Shopping in Milan colorway, starting out with R2 all over my lids, R1 in my crease and R3 as the highlighter, and let me tell you, pink isn’t usually my choice for eyeshadow, but I LOVE those pinks. Then I put L1 in the corners of my eye and swept a wide line by my upper lashes, and I used L5, which seems like such a random color with the pinks and purples, but it’s great for making a really nice contrast, to line my upper lid. On my lower lid, I lined it with one of the dark dark greens from another colorway, but I didn’t really like how it turned out, so I went back over the line with Urban Decay’s 24/7 liner in Graffiti (I think that’s the color I have; it could be Covet, I suppose). And memo to me: contacts OUT when doing makeup. I am sick of getting shit in my eyes which then fucks up my contacts for the rest of the night.
Also, I have recently purchased Too Faced’s Mood Swing lip gloss in Berry Pink. At first I bought the Petal Pink, but that shit was PINK. Like 80’s pink. Like BAD ON MY FACE. The Berry Pink, however, is quite nice. I don’t know how well it corresponds to my “moods”, but I have definitely noticed it get darker as I wear it, also it kind of stains my lips so there’s still a tint to them even when the gloss has worn off or when I put a different gloss on over top (because at $18.50 a pop, you can bet I’m hoarding that shit like GOLD).
Anyways, Sephora rocks my fucking socks right off!
(Do I need to mention that I received no monies for good words? Because I totally didn’t.)
Brought to you by Irrational Irritation to remind myself that not EVERYTHING is fucking annoying:
I picked up my bridesmaid dress. The color is lovely and looks great against my skin and with my newly dark hair. I need to get it taken in because I’m a tiny bit smaller than when I bought it mid-February
The ridiculously hot shoes I’m going to buy for the wedding: black close toed platform stilettos. I just need to find the perfect pair.

Quiet day in the office (that could be due to my phone not working)
Going home in two weeks
My car passed emissions
Getting a bunch of overdue errands finished yesterday
Spinach & Goat Cheese frozen pizza from Target
My new camera should be waiting for me when I get home! (Unfortunately, I was a dumbass & didn’t order a memory card. GRR)
Knowing there’s a new tattoo in my soonish future; once I get a solid one, I don’t sit on tattoo ideas very long
30% off Urban Decay.com (Imma get me this (in Binge/Bourbon), this (in Stereophonic), and this (in Flipside). I also kind of want eyeshadow; my momma says the colors are awesome & intense.
In lieu of anything of substance to say, I bring you cool stuffs I have found on the internet:
From Sephora’s blog: How bad do I want cute Japanese makeup? SO BAD. One of everything, please!
You know what else I want? Some new stripper shoes. Some of these shoes are just WEIRD, but mostly? I LOVE THEM, OMG. And I do need a pair of shoes for the Wedding. *waggly eyebrows of suggestion* (via @fuggirls)
Describe your dream library and win stuff! Mine involves floor to ceiling shelves on every wall, except for the giant window, big comfy chairs, plenty of good lighting and coffee. And maybe yarn. Library/knitting room. (via @neilhimself)
Look! Carrie Ryan is giving away books! Whoo free stuff!
Bugs covered in water! (via @amandapalmer; ignore her kind of douchey quip about Lady Gaga)
This is mostly how I’m feeling about life right now: BLEH. Remember how I want more than waiting for this to pass? I’m there; waiting for it all to pass. I worry about failing out of school, except I’m not doing the work to make sure I don’t. I have dreams for my life that I want NOW but I spend so much time fucking around, I don’t know if they’ll happen THEN. I’m kind of just frustrated.
ETA: This is how I felt when my grandmother friended me on FB. (Love you, G’ma!!) (via cleolinda)
