Onto some pictures and swatches and I forgot the lip gloss swatch.
I used the brush btw
about but for once, this is an amazing GWP! I usually buy my
Clinique Take the Day Off Balm during the GWP event to try new products.
Onto the pictures!
I didn't use the mascara (BE Flawless Definition in Espresso)
and I used Bobbi Brown Gel Liner in Espresso (
other alternatives are BE Bark or Root)
I used the top right color on my lid, bottom right in the crease/V/blended
halfway over lid, bottom left color used to deep the crease/V and the
top left color to highlight on brow and inner lid. These were really
nice and no fall out! The lipstick lasts quite a while and
applying it with a lip brush really helps you to choose how much
or how little color you want.
So what do you think?

So some updates. We still haven't gotten a house, you can read more about that on my DH's blog, The Slow Lane, and musings about why the first time home buyer tax credit is part of our problem. We've taken a break from it all in hopes to recover mentally from all this and there just aren't any more good homes available.
In make up news Sephora Friends and Family sale is well under way and is expiring at Midnight PST on November 2nd. The code if FF2009 and applies to anything in stock. A frequently asked question about the sale is if you can go in stores. Yes and No. Some stores have been nice enough to honor the discount but they are few and far between. The event is intended, as all F&F events, for the friends and family of the employees. There were rumors that VIBs would get a special email but it never came to fruition (booo!). I did make an order for staples like Living Proof spray, Klorane dry shampoo, Bare Escentuals Flawless Definition Mascara and a new $OPI Absinthe Makes the Heart nail polish. I also wanted to try 2 primers (Cargo HD & Laura Mercier Mineral Primer (liquid)) Cargo is going back and Laura Mercier may as well. They are average at best and for the price, it isnt' worth keeping. I also, FINALLY, got my hands on the Lowe's Holiday Storage Chest!! In previous years, Lowe's offered a wooden, felt lined tool box around the holidays. I couldn't get a hold of one in '07 and they weren't made in '08 so I thought I'd never own one.
This year they decided to make them again!! I have to make a seperate post about that with proper pictures but I think any person who is into make up would love it as it is great looking and holds a ton!
Lets see.. last Saturday was the first Nails Night Out in New York City. It started very late and was a bit disorganized but for a first attempt, it was BRILLIANT. I went with a fellow blogger (mayaari)and we met a lot of great girls, swapped polish, ate, drank and got an amazing goodie bag! Argh, another reason why I miss my camera! I've been keeping the goodie bag together and not putting it away so I can someday take pictures!
The holiday season is quickly coming and that means some of the best make up! Bare Escentuals has a TSV that is crosspromting with Honora - the details are sketchy but there is jewelry involved for sure! I hope Paul will forgive me on this one. I really wanted to order the TSV before the show but since details aren't for certain on what will be released when, I wanted to wait so maybe I could make one order to keep the cost of shipping down (QVC is such a ripoff and wasteful in their shipping practices - I only order their exclusives when absolutely necessary.) The TSV is November 7th at midnight.
