Harder than I thought.


I want to buy something. The Maybelline Studio Eye Shadow looks amazing. I want ten pan to be over. So far I have chosen my nude lipstick from Revlon, my blue eyeliner from Avon, one of my many clear shiny lip glosses, the Buzz one, and two half tubes of Maybelline mascara to use up. I have had difficulty being excited about makeup for the past week because I have had to wear my glasses due to being out of contact lenses. I know that makeup is just as pretty, but for me it doesn't feel like it. I will be experimenting with looks to help me get over my glasses funk. Today I have white shadow and bright pink liner on. Statement. More later.

still deciding

So I still haven't picked my products for 10 pan yet. I counted the number of products I have used in the past three days alone, and it was 32. I am having a hard time determining what I will use repeatedly until it is gone. I have to make a decision though, so I will probably narrow it down tonight when I prepare for my sleep study at the hospital. I will have a lot of time by myself to think.

Ten Pan

 10 - pan

So it was inevitable, eventually I was going to have to face the music. I am a makeup addict, I am destined to live my life as a cosmetics junkie. This being said I have decided to try Project 10 pan like many of the girls on You Tube. Over the next couple days I will be selecting 10 items that I will use everyday until they are gone. With us trying to get into our house and buy furniture it is a good time for me. So I will choose the lucky 10 and then I will post pictures of them and keep you updated on my progress. I will also continue to post about other items but they will strictly be from shopping my own collection. Hello my name is M and I am a makeaholic. Wish me luck!!

Peach Sunset

 Top three needed items!

I have been a slacker on posting, but I had a lot going on with both my jobs. I took a trip to Walmart the other day because I had to kill an hour waiting for my boyfriend to get off work so we could go house hunting. I work I had made a list of the top three things I would get if I was going to buy makeup. I came up with the top three being a blue eyeliner, a good under eye concealer, and an lipstick that leaned a little bit towards the orange side. This is what I purchased;

Hard Candy Take Me Out Eyeliner in Sake' ~ I love the fun chopstick like packaging of this eyeliner, and the color is nice and bright, I want to try out the other colors because I really like this one. The only thing I do not like is if you use it on the lower lash line it does have a bit of fallout, so you have to pay attention to it. On top it stays put well, I used a powder over it to make it stay put.

Rimmel London Recover Anti Fatigue Concealer in Ivory ~ I like this because it instantly brightens up my eye area. It isn't ideal for full coverage, but it does keep you from looking overly tired.

Wet and Wild Silk Finish Lipstick in Peach Sunset ~ I like the finish of this lipstick, it is smooth and the color is really pretty. It does not stay on for a long time, but as long as you do not mind reapplying then it is great. I reapply all day out of habit even if the lipstick stays on great!

Also I was shopping my collection for blue eyeliners before I went to buy this one, and found my Avon Ultra Luxury Eyeliner in Midnight Blue. It is a lot darker then Sake' so it works for a completely different look.

 Here is the Sake' and Concealer

Ava Gardner was gorgeous. There is no denying that. She was very comfortable in her sexuality too, she was not afraid who knew it. The picture to the left (courtesy of google images) is one of the best pictures of her. The part that I focus on are those lashes. Granted they might be fake lashes. The movie production companies she worked for loved to slather as much makeup as possible on their actresses, and I would not put it past them to use fakes. I love old Hollywood Glamour. I have read two books about the life of Ava Gardner, and I think she was just a natural beauty. She lived in a time before plastic surgery was the norm, and before airbrushing was really possible. Her overall look is fantastic, but since I was focused on her lashes, I will get to my point.
Lashes can complete a whole look. The right mascara can tie everything together just perfectly. That is why I am loving the mascara of my life right now Mary Kay's Signature Ultimate Mascara! It makes my lashes long and so pretty. It separates well, and you do not need to use a lot of coats to achieve your desired look. I took a picture of mine because I had never opened it, and I am not sure when I got it. I also put a stock picture from Mary Kay's website, because the packaging has changed. The mascara comes in black and black/brown. It is $15.00 on their website and on Amazon I found it for $13.00 in the silver packaging like I have. It is well worth it, it may be the only one I use for a while.

Just for fun here are some more gorgeous pictures of Ava!! All from Google image search.

Above is my favorite. It is from the movie the killers where she drives two men to their destruction with her beauty. She looks fantastic even in black and white!

What was I thinking?????

I completely left the house today without any lipstick on, or any in my purse. This is a HUGE deal to me because I do not usually go anywhere without lipstick on me. Enter my savior, the lip gloss duo you see to the right. It is the Femme Couture Ultra Shine Lip Duo in Pink Tulip. I got this a while back from Sally's because you got it for free when you purchased one or more of the Femme Couture eye shadows. It is so shiny I only used the one side, and even I can stand not having lipstick on!!

Here is what Sally's says about it;
  • Gives lips a shiny, pouty look
  • Two semi-sheer shades
  • Can be worn together or separately
 I really like the shine. I am glad I rediscovered it in my makeup bag, because now, of course, I am going to try it over my precious gaga!!!!
