Barry M Racing Green and OPI Call My Cell-ery

I like to wear green when the weather begins to turn crispy and cold.  I guess it is because the leaves are dead looking and I want some green in my life.  Nail polish is the best way to get that green for me and this time I chose two polishes:  Barrry M Racing Green (brought to me by the lovely Kelly as a gift) and OPI Call My Cell-ery which I had for ages but never used until now.

Tis the Season

Well, I hope all the Americans had a good Thanksgiving. I hope no one got hurt deep frying their turkey. Everytime, I hear the sirens I always think someone's frozen turkey exploded from deep frying. Let's just keep the turkey in the oven, okay? Anyway, as you know Black Friday starts which really kicks off shopping as a sporting event. I have never been a sporty person although I was a cute little cheerleader in my teenage years who flapped her arms like a turkey! Sales are everywhere and bargains and freebies will be tempting. You all probably know all the Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sales so I won't list them.  However, I have two places that may be of interest to some of you.

Cover FX-The Big Cover Up 3 Step Essentials

I figured it was time to try Cover FX after trying all the pro brands like RCMA, Joe Blasco, Ben Nye, Kryolan, and Cinema Secrets to name a few.  I opted for The Big Cover Up 3 Step Essentials ($75USD) kit in the M series available at Sephora.  This set includes the following:

Holy MACkerel-A Confession

Not a fish but actually a fowl, my MAC Powerpoint Pencil in Duck.  I bet you were wondering if I had any MAC items.  I do but often times I go for pro brands other than MAC since they are cheaper and usually have dupes.  But the one item I can't really find a dupe of is the MAC Powerpoint Pencil in Duck which is a medium brown with gray.

Korres Evening Primrose & Sunflower Oil Antioxidant Eye Quad in Natural

Lately, I have been spending my dollars at Sephora mostly because I had about a 2 year Sephora hiatus for no reason.  I suddenly found myself reaching VIB status and with a Sephora too close by inside a JCPenneys, I had to spend.  One of the items I bought was the Korres Evening Primrose & Sunflower Oil Antioxidant Eye Quad in natural.  This is valued at $64 but is sold for $35USD for four full sized eyeshadows.

Peter Thomas Roth Illuminating High Definition Moisturizer-Is It Like the Emperor's New Clothes?

For the past year I would say that I have been playing with various foundations from pro to regular brands, from sheer to complete coverage, from liquid to creams, and from stippling to airbrushing.  I do like playing with foundation just to see what kind of canvas it would provide for the skin.  But when it comes to something quick and natural for just my own skin, I generally apply colored cosmetics on a simple prepped face of concealer and face powder.  Lately, though, I had been wanting more of a luminous finish but nothing really too shimmery or even frosty.  I wanted just a healthy looking glow without the obvious color of a foundation.  Peter Thomas Roth's Illuminating High Definition Moisturizer ($48USD for 1.7oz) fit the bill.

Make Up For Ever Eyeshadows-163 and 164

I bought  Make Up For Ever (MUFE) eyeshadows long ago.  Sometime, between then and now, I parted with them because I wanted other stuff.  Well, now I revisit the line and chose two colors which I thought would be nice neutrals: 163 (matte beige brown)-looks more red brown or cocoa brown and 164 (cafe latte)-looks more of a tan with slight pink red undertones.

SpaRitual Health, Wealth, and Happiness Nail Polish

First, I like to thank Joy for she surprised me with this and another polish from Soap.com.  When I received the box, I thought I have really become a nail polish fanatic because I must have ordered this during my sleep.  Thank goodness I read the little message! :P

Those Damn Women on Mad Men

The fourth season of Mad Men has been over for a few weeks and I miss having my weekly immoral rants over manhoor Don Draper.  However, this isn't about Don but the women that are influenced by his charm, talent, and insecurities-Joan Holloway, Peggy Olson, Betty Draper (Francis), and Faye Miller.
