FOTD & Back 2 MAC

I have finally accumulated and used 7 MAC packages. The program only requires 6 empty containers, but I wasn't so sure about the eye makeup remover as a qualifying container. I decided to break my new habit of solely using the PUR minerals palette. Today, I used my Urban Decay Book of Shadow's VOL I. I used Gridlock as my lid color, on top of Benefit's Stay Don't Stray (which isn't all that great, imo). My crease color and highlight, I returned back to the PUR minerals palette - same colors as my previous post. I used MAC's Ablaze blush & MAC's Pucker Tendertone.

I trimmed my bangs last night, I need some thinning shears.

Process of moving back home, hence all the boxes.

Today's only errand consisted of going to the MAC counter at Macy's. I arrived with my empty containers and walked away with Capricious lipcolor. I feel I already have a color similar to it, Lightly Ripe or Buoy o Buoy - which are both limited edition, so I'm not complaining since I love both colors. I was almost tempted to get Cyber or Diva, since fall is around the corner but I have so many deep berry colors already.

I think that's all I have for today, might play around with more makeup tonight.

Current Cosmetic Faves

It has been quite some time since I have posted. Quick catch up, I've graduated college and have a little bit of free time on my hands and lots of make up that needs to be used. I've since thrown away my coastal scents 88 palette, as I became too dependent on it to achieve looks. Now, I have quickly replaced the 88 palette with the PUR minerals palette that I rediscovered. Oy, I need to get a rotation started.

Since it's summer, hot and humid here in Virginia, I try to wear minimal make up when I do go out. These are my current faves:

  • Pur Minerals Inspire, Reflect, Celebrate palette
  • Everyday Minerals Peach color corrector
  • MAC Spaced Out Sheertone Shimmer blush
  • Loreal Hydra Perfecte Loose Powder
  • MAC Blacktrack Fluidline
  • Maybelline concealer
  • PUR Minerals 4-in-1 Pressed MIneral Makeup
  • Make Up Forever Sens'eyes (eye makeup remover)

I've been using Vanilla Foldspar (lid color), Olivenight (crease color), White Opal (highlight) the most out of this palette. Here is the look I created today on my day off to do errands.

Excuse the in your face grillin' you look. Oh, I'm in my "house clothes" too.

Til next time!

What Are Putting On Your FACE/BODY?

I was in my Human Biology class and my professor brought up this website during lecture.

Basically, this is a database of makeup and beauty products. It lists the hazard levels of an item you search. I was pretty much blown away. Upon searching, you can select a product which then details ingredients in the product that are linked to: CANCER, DEVELOPMENTAL/REPRODUCTIVE TOXICITY, etc.

Man, I know "Beauty is pain" but its costing us our health too, damn! :P

Hmm, I just felt like sharing that.
