I've always liked makeup. Sure, there was that awkward learning-to-use-black-eyeliner phase, in which I looked like a raccoon, and the unfortunate really bright colors phase, but I have since refined my style and continued to spend tons of money on makeup.
Today's purchases included some necessities: I needed foundation for winter, and new chapstick (they were out of Lipsmackers in bubblegum, can you believe that?! I got strawberry instead...) but then I ran into this. This gorgeous palette full of pretty pinks and nudes paired with grays, plums and the perfect green. I needed it. So... I splurged.
For $35, I got this lovely palette. I needed something to get me out of my awful eyeshadowless rut! The nice surprise is that I got a free Too Faced Lash Injection Mascara! I'd head to Ulta pronto if I were you...
I also picked up a CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in Delight. It's the most perfect coral-y pink. The texture of this new lipstick is fantastic too, which is great for a drugstore brand.
Anyhow, I thought I'd model the makeup a little. I promise to drag out my good camera soon and stop using photobooth. This is just the beginning, though.
