Contest Update and Random Thoughts


Shall I repost the contest, or scrap it? The deadline to win a brand new MAC ‘Briar Rose’ Beauty Powder is November 15th…

And I don’t have a single entry to choose from.


Anyone willing to participate should email their entries to by Monday night. The winner will ne notified by email, and asked for a mailing address. The winner’s picture will also be posted on the blog.

Here’s what I asked for:

Some reasonable imitation of this look. Don’t need the  jewelry. Just the colors and (preferably) the lashes. But you know what, If you absolutely can’t swing the lashes, the colors and technique will do.
Here’s the prize:

Deadline is Monday night. After that, this lovely item gets rotated back into the kits as a backup (or sold on ebay). 
You have to be a subscriber/follower of the blog to qualify.
C’mon guys, lets play in some makeup!
Other stuff:
I look less like a reptile today (yayy!) and I’m about ready to really dive back into my regular makeup routine. I also have a bunch of new additions that I’d like to share. YSL’s Holiday stuff is noteworthy, and I took a step back in time to revisit Chanel’s Murano quad (Autumn 2009). Swatches and looks to come. Has anyone gotten their hands on any Chanel Soho stuff? I still need a backup of Stunt. Since they’re available at counters nationwide now… I think that if you can get your hands on it, you should. Of the laques, it’s the most ‘everyday wearable’ for women of color imo. Dragon is still my favorite red ever, but not likely suitable for everyday wear.
Taking a second pass at Buxom. I’m not a fan of the parent brand (Bare Essentials), but Buxom seems to be redeeming the line a bit for me. I just got my hands on a mascara (and I’m QUITE the mascara snob). I’ll try it out and share my results.
Also, I got permission to leak a few details the webseries (ultra secret!lol). Specifics (and a picture or two) to come.
That’s it for now! Ciao!

    I've been a bit overwhelmed with school lately, but I'm totally going to submit a pic for this contest. I would love to get my hands on that blush!
