So my blogging break which was really due to limited net connection or no connection at all and that left me worried with some withdrawal symptoms.  Yet, at the same time, I was so busy that I didn't have time to think about it much.  Now, I am having a hard time getting into the swing of things but eventually I will be back to my old addicted internet self.

When I showed the Sugarpill Cosmetics Burning Heart Palette to my mum, I knew her eyes would fall out of her head.  Not because it was just too wild but because she would actually want the palette for herself.  Thank goodness I bought an extra palette so she wouldn't steal mine!  The palette consists of four colors:  Love+-a cool tone pearly red, Flamepoint-matte tangerine orange, Buttercupcake-bright matte yellow, and Poison Plum-a slightly shimmery purple with small specks of sparkle.  The palette retails for $34USD or shadows can be bought separately at $12.  Yes, the colors are outrageously loud and bright but Spring weather calls for some fun which shouldn't stop with age.

Ah, getting close to the end of my collection of Faces Cosmetics eyeshadows .  This bunch has some nice neutrals that will give that polished eye look without it turning into a color fest.  Of course, these neutrals can be used as a basic eye look and topped off with any of the colors for that easy pop of color to take you from day to night.

Wow, doing this eyeshadow collection in parts really shows me how obsessed and possessive I am of my tablets of color.  I don't use all of them because some just make me look like a total hoor!  Yes, I am being honest, but the ones I do use work wonderfully for me and my skin tone and the others are just great eye-candy.

I am not one to really try drugstore stuff just because I have been disappointed by many things and have wasted enough money on mediocre performing drugstore makeup which would have gotten me good promising performing high end or pro stuff.  However, I cannot complain about Physicians Formula new gel liners.  The stuff has opened my eyes to drugstore accessible gel liners!

This is my second installment of my Faces Cosmetics eyeshadows.  Again they are numbered and show no particular order in value of color, just a mix of colors that are either useful and wearable for everyday or artistically useful.

Have I ever done one of these?  Or maybe in a parallel universe I did many of these and forgot to post them here.  Anyway, here is my EOTD (eye of the day) post.  Yes, it is subtle and for two reasons.  1-I was going to Whole Foods and I swear I feel like a drag queen at mine because I am the only one who wears a full face of makeup there.  2-As I get closer to middle age, I realize that my wild punk and rocker days of my youth are evolving into an inner beauty that refuses to be masked by my millions of collection of colors.  Yes, I have fought with myself when it comes to applying red eyeshadow and other colors, I can't apply them like a parrot and do the latest swirly colors on my eyes.  But, I still like color and have compromised my application to suit my personality.  Inner self is pleased with my outer self. :-)

This might not be a big deal but for me it is because I have a hard time using the same product for a long period of time.  What is the product?  It is Tricia Sawyer Beauty called Alive!  This is the little blurb of it:

As I go through my stash of colors, I came across a box that I had for awhile and completely forgot due to winter cleaning, then spring cleaning.  I must have been so occupied with arranging and rearranging that I forgot about makeup!  Not an easy feat but somehow forgetfulness did occur.  It was, however, surprising to find a box full of eyeshadows.  Some that look (the colors) like they would transport me back to the 1960's.
