First Palette

Yay! My first MAC palette is complete! It took awhile, but it's okay. I'm soo glad to see it w/o any holes! So, being the geek that I am, I added the names of the eyeshadows. As you can tell, my palette is "warm". I haven't really experimented much with color, but I love how dramatic I can get my eyes with playing up these shadows. I love having all my e/s in a palette, it makes it easier to pick out colors to match certain clothes. HEHE! So far, I'm loving Twinks and Embark for my everyday work look. Anyways! If I decide to build a second palette, you guys gotta tell me what your holy grail eyeshadows are! Actually, just tell me now.. what are you favorite e/s?

So I'm pretty disappointed with the mini Shu Uemera. Geez, I thought it would make my eye lashes amazing, but uhhh NO! What a rip! I'm just going to stick with the regular Shu. Others rave about it, but maybe cause they know how to do it and I don't. PUAHA! So, I'm going to return that sucker at Sephora and purchase the NARS bronzer/blush DUO! Thanks to Ailene, I read her blog and gasped when I saw the duo! Everyone has been raving about the Orgasm blush, but the fact that this DUO comes with the Orgasm Blush and Bronzer is good in my books! WOO!


So, I really want a Bamboo tablet (It's your fault, TINA! Haha, j/j)to play with my photos and ish. I'm adding it to my Christmas list. Along with a KitchenAid mixer so I can make my own freakin cupcakes like Georgetown cupcake, Madison Coach bag, Dior Mascara, Armani Face Fabric (Since Tricia [sis in law] and Iyah!) rave about it!). EEEKS!! PUAHAH!

Thanks for reading loves! I really do appreciate it! I get giddy like a nerd when I have comments! PUAHHA! I can't believe I just said that!

Haha so I go to my Google Reader and your's is at the top of my list! :P Yay I'm so glad you're happy with your complete palette. You have some colors I want, but I think I need to stay away from MAC for a while.

Too bad the mini Shu didn't work. I have the Shu but I actually like the Shiseido one better. Oh well, different strokes for different folks. And gah that bamboo tablet looks cool!

Yay for filling up your palette! Great choice of colors by the way :)

&&&... WHAT?! You don't like the Shu Uemera eyelash curler? OMG I've never heard such a thing. Can I have it? Hahaha jk! ;D

I really hope you get a Bamboo tablet. You can already see how much fun I'm having with it. & I've had it for MONTHS but I never thought about using it for my blog until recently. I wonder who else is gonna get one. hehehe

Tina Marie Online said...

OMG hello, I'm a retard... I obviously did NOT read your blog very well and I didn't realize it was the mini. Haha... I don't want it anymore! lol I'm kidding ;)

Tina Marie Online said...

Haha hell yeah. I've been on this thing since I got home and that was like at 2!! Haha.

WTH girl, you said Bamboo palette. Hahaha that made me laugh out loud but I knew what you meant ;D

Shoooot you better get one so we can bust out our creativity. I might copy some of your skills just in case I run out. LOL. :DDDD

nice first palette! mine still has some empty spaces hahah but it's because i get lazy to depot =/ it is sooo much easier than having to grab each pot of e/s! i really like beautymarked, knight divine, plumage, and honeylust e/s.

i really want the bamboo thing too! especially with the fact that it comes with photoshop when photoshop alone is already really expensive.

GAH! You HAVE to get the GA Face Fabric. I'm getting excited just telling you about it. haha! I love love love love it! Even more than my MAC mineralized foundation. Only thing is have someone help you pick the color 'cause the tubes are very deceiving, like my tube looks way dark but the color is perfect. AAH! haaha, you're gonna love it. I'm a nerd, sorry. hahaha!

Anywho, you're pallet looks pretty! I don't even know how to organize my pallets, i just put all my colors in one pallet and all my neutrals in one. You should try Antiqued (that's goldish right?) on the lid and Coppering in the crease. Very pretty. =)

I'll be over soon so we can depot 'cause i'm scared poopless to do it myself. lol.

you're such a dork! haha. i'm jealous that you have so many eyeshadows. i still haven't bought my paint pot..i will one day soon.. maybe i'll buy it as an xmas gift to myself. hah.

Jen said...

@moette: puahaha! people that read my blog and comments probably think you're meanie! but they probably have no idea that you're my cousin and we call each other dorks all the time! puahahah! miss your face!

thanks for the shout out! i've been using the duo since i got it and so far so good! i agree that the blush is universally flattering and the laguna bronzer is definitely better than anything i've tried so far. for $37 (plus 20% off!) it was a steal! i'll try to do a review on it later, when the rest of my haul arrives. yes, i ordered twice...*guilty face*

ps. love the palette! i've been meaning to get some of those colors since i'm partial to warm, neutral shadows, too.

Awwwwww congratulations on your 1st palette completion, and such pretty colors!!! Love it!!! I love my MAC palette, they make life so much easier then luggin' around those lil pots everywhere.

Go YOU!

Iyah said...

Thanks! :) You're in my blog roll already :D

i haven't tried the moisture concealer, but i'm really loving this one! before that i was using benefit's erase paste (which is ridiculously expensive idk why i bought it lol) but the color fits me perfectly! and when the MUA tried it on me i couldn't even tell =] i'm loving your palette though! i sort mines by color [browns/blues/greens/pinks] and of course the brown one filled up first! i actually don't have twinks or embark but i really like using saddle and bamboo! they're such pretty matte colors. but my HG e/s is Brule! its the first one i ever got its perfect! lol i use it mostly as a highlighter [its great for everyday work looks too] but if i need a nice base color for my shadows [after primer of course] i can use brule! its such a plain color i would have never picked it up but i love it and you have to have to get beautiful iris and nocturnelle [they're amazing together] oh girl i could go on forever haha

Iyah said...

I love your palette! :D I also have a "warm" palette :D I love mine too!

ooolipsticks said...
