Do I have a MAC addiction?
Well, I finally had to sort out my make-up, because the pigments and shadows wouldn't fit in the same drawer anymore. And I had bought the organizers before (for one shadow per box), but realized that even when I had bought them, they were not enough. I would have needed twice as much, and that wouldn't been do-able in the space. So I put them away. And now I needed them.



Here is my eyeshadow drawer, along with the overflow from it.



Here are my pigments, and my BareMineral's stuff.

you should totally depot your shadows into palletes. You can back2Mac for more lipsticks

Would you have a source for the 15 pan palettes? Or is it best to go through eBay, because I'm not a professional (although I often buy like one)!

You can buy them at any free standing MAC store. Also if you back2Mac at the MAC store you can get eyeshadows and not just lipsticks.

Oooh! Good to know! There's one in Olympia (I think) attached to the Macy's, but with it's own entrance. Darn, just checked... it's part of Macy's. The nearest? Seattle. But that's only like... 40 miles. I can do that!

I tend to wear a crazy palette of eye color, but am more limited on the lips... perfect!

Me too! Are you into lashes cause I just went nuts. I bought10 pair. I wear anybody's lashes and Halloween is the best time to stock up. Some are for dress up and fun, like the feater lashes and a few are for everyday.

Have you seen the Alexander McQueen collection? soooo pretty! Also if you have a Nordstrom's near you they have the Fall trend show coming up.

I haven't tried any false eyelashes - I have trouble with getting lip pencil or liquid eyeliner to go on right, and have been too nervous to try false eyelashes. But I do need them, because mine are pretty short. And when I went to that Master class? They put some on the girl model, and they were so pretty, yet also natural looking!

How long does one pair last? The artist said that if you put mascara on them, they only last one wear. If you put your mascara on first, then put the lashes on, she said you could use them 5-6 times. Has that been your experience?

I've never reused mine more than 3x's. The best thing I did was buy the eye lash kit from Sephora, a few pairs of drug store $1.99 lashes and just keep practicing.

Do I have a MAC addiction?

... all signs point to yes. (but i think a MAC addiction is better than a chocolate addiction, which is what i have. :-D)

Wow~ That is impressive. I'm not into make-up much, but the quality and vibrance of MAC's products always catch my eye when I'm in the store. How long have you been accumulating all those MAC products?

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Your bathroom looks like that Mac counter. :)

Are you still using your BareMinerals stuff daily? Are you enjoying it?

I adore MAC cosmetics. They are all I use!!!

Oh my word. That's such an impressive collection.

I've only just been introduced to MAC cosmetics, but I already feel an obsession coming on. They are simply the best.

Don't let my daughter see these pics....you will have a new kid. And she'll never let you near your own makeup again....

Jilla- who is a mean momma and won't buy her 14 year old MAC eyeshadow, since she uses too much eyeliner, anyway...
rainmakerslurve From: rainmakerslurve Date: October 11th, 2007 06:31 pm (UTC) (Link)
Coming from a 19 year old, I don't think that's mean AT ALL. Too many young kids wearing too much makeup and not enough clothing. Stay firm! As a peer (kind of) to your daughter, I approve!

I used to do theatre, and some local modeling-I know how to put makeup on to maximize your features. She seems to thinks that tons of eyeshadow and black eyeliner makes you look sexy-I just told her it makes her gorgeous, huge blue eyes look smaller. Not to mention, too much makeup is bad for your skin!

As for the clothes? Don't even go there. I just want to snatch some of these parents bald for letting their BABIES dress like ho's. Sexy is cute-slutty is not.
