Taking a Breather

Tonight was the last night of Summer School.  I gave an exam, so I was done early and have already posted all the grades!  So now I get to take a breather until 7 a.m. on August 23rd.  That's when Fall starts back.  I wish, oh how I wish, that they would start Summer School a week earlier so that we got a 2 week break between Summer II and Fall, but nobody asks me.

So in my week of leisure, I have several fun activities planned, so stay tuned for a little fun next week!

Now on to one of my favorite subjects...make-up!  I had totally convinced myself that I was not going to go  to Neimans for a Fall revamp of all my make-up for a few reasons:  (1) I own like every color of eye shadow that is made, (2) I still have tons of my green palette made by the Hasidic Jew from last Fall, and (3) my Fall splurge was on clothes...and a trip to New Orleans next month. 

But I had been hearing this little palette from Urban Decay calling my name...


I kept thinking that it wasn't really that expensive in the scheme of things...only $44 after all.  But then while in Target last week, I ran across these...



Only $5 stinking dollars each! 

I don't know why restraint came over me for the first time in my life, but it did, and I only bought the Smoky Eye Edition.  I'm thinking I need to go back and see if the others are still there.  They had a lip palette too, but I don't like lip stuff you HAVE to use a lip brush with, so it didn't really interest me, but if that is your thing, you may want to check that out too.  If you are interested, they weren't located with the ELF stuff at Target, but were on an end cap in the make-up section.  I also got a minty lip gloss (for $3) that makes me feel like I've just brushed my teeth every time I use it (even if I haven't).

Here is an up close look at the Smoky Eye set...

I love the silvers!  I can't wait to try it all out.  I have the perfect occasion  for a smoky eye next week...

I hate to admit this to you, but I do my makeup the exact same way every single day- summer, winter, spring, fall- and for all events. I do change up my lipstick color depending on what I'm wearing, but that is all (and I only have three different colors of lipsticks). I may have to come to see you for an intervention.

You have to do a post letting us know how it is. I am very intrigued right now!
