What's in my Touch Up Make Up Bag

I usually skip posts about what is in my make up bag because mine is totally boring, especially what I keep in my purse for touch ups.  For a makeup junkie like me, I hate carrying around a lot of make up in my purse because I rarely do anything to touch up during the day except reapply lipstick.  I am a total minimalist.  However, I have seen people who carry everything but the kitchen sink in their bag and the only reason they don't have the sink is because they use the one in the bathroom.  I knew this girl in college who carried her curling iron, hairspray, makeup brushes, entire makeup, and not to mention her toothbrush.  (I actually think she was getting dolled up for the teacher's assistant and you know, spending the night! Anyhow that is another gossipy story.)

Sula Cosmetics-Creme Shadows and Lip/Cheek Stick

I was intrigued by the new display of Sula Cosmetics at my Ulta recently and decided to try some products.  The stuff I bought were all $8USD each which is a stiff price for a drugstore line, but I had a discount of 20% handy.  I am guessing that the line is known for its Paint & Peel nail polish which I did not buy because I never liked that type of polish.  I opted for the lip and cheek tint and creme eyeshadows.

Make Up For Ever Aqua Creams

Make Up For Ever Aqua Creams
I am definitely late to the game with these Make Up For Ever Aqua Creams ($22USD), actually I could be late on many things because I try to ignore the hype.  When these first came out, I looked at them and just passed on them because I really had no use for them.  Do I have a use for them now? Probably not but having a JCPenny's close by that carries this stuff really doesn't help!

Yeah, I am still Alive

First, I would like to thank everyone for their concern.  I appreciate every comment. :-)

I am still alive and getting better.  I know I ignored my blog which is bad but in my way it was good.  I got things into perspective and discovered things about myself learned to listen to myself rather than ignore what was to be inevitable.

My Lack of Posts

Sorry for the lack of posts but I got hit with a sinus infection that is taking a toll on me to the point where I can't concentrate on blogging or for that matter don't even want to be on the net.  Now, you know something is wrong with that!!  As soon as I get better, I hope things will be back to normal or I hope I will.

Indie-pendent post-Meow Cosmetics Egyptian Treasures Eye of Horus Eyeshadows

I bought these four eyeshadows ($8USD full-size; $1USD sample size) during the Meow Cosmetics Easter Egg hunt which was a fun thing to do on their part, finding all the eggs that carried various amounts of discounts.  If you found the golden egg, that one had the biggest discount.  I hope it is done again next year, just pure fun!

LA Splash-Enlightened Creamy Shadow Base

LA Splash has expanded their line with pressed shadows, liquid shadows and now these cream shadow bases.  I have a weakness for cream eyeshadows even when I know they will crease and disappear.  This one is no exception especially during the summer months, the sweat and oils will just crease these creams into oblivion.  Why did I buy them? They looked pretty at the store and maybe I can hold onto them until the winter where the coolness could prevent creasing.  There are five colors each retail for $6.99USD.  I only bought three out of the five since I don't need the smoky black one nor the glittery clear one.  Actually, I don't need these but when I see creamy nude colors, I think they will be useful for anything.

I Have WHAT on My Ipod??

While rock music had a major influence on my life, British 80's Pop probably changed it.  It was this music that made me move myself across the Atlantic to London.  I had to go there and be there to live and breath a world of fashion and music.  Oh the music, oh the fashion, oh the nightclubs and dancing; there will never be a time like the 80's. A time when style wasn't dictated by anything other than originality.  A time when coiffed hair, a three piece suit and makeup on men looked so good!

Peter Thomas Roth Owns a Dragon!

Peter Thomas Roth has a product called Laser-Free Resurfacer with Dragon's Blood Complex ($75USD).  I actually don't own this product but the key ingredient of dragon's blood alerted me.  There is a dragon somewhere who is donating its blood or having it sucked out against its will.  We must find it and save it before other cosmetic brands start using the blood.  If we don't start here, imagine what will be next; Unicorn pee, Medusa's stare, Pegasus' wing cartilage, Bigfoot's balls.  The list will go on and on.  I am so against the unethical treatment of mythological creatures.  If you feel the same, please join in my quest to banish the use of these ingredients!

Diego Dalla Palma-How You Make My Lips Sexy!!

Imagine the simplistic cleanliness of a white tube with black fonts housing a stick of complex pigments.  At first twist, the color draws your breath deeply into your heart making it pound with force.  Upon first touch, it teases your lips like that first peck of passion.  Upon first swipe, the boldness of color with the alluring emotion permeates your soul.  That is when you surrender and realize you and the lipstick are one.
