Too Faced Cosmetics

Thursday, October 29, 2009 0
Even though I am not allowed to buy any type of product (self induced intervention)until Spring 2010 (this means NO to hair products, makeup, skin care, perfume..nothing!) I had placed 2 orders before I fell head first into product junkydom.
In an effort to make myself feel better, this Too Faced Cosmetics haul cost me next to nothing. I had a 20% off coupon in addition, the purchases I made were all fro the clearance section where things have already been reduced by i spent about $30 bucks total on all of these products.
Let me start by saying that you can purchase Too Faced Cosmetics at Sephora, as well as from their website this is the crap I bought :)

I bought two Candy Bars, which are eye shadow & shimmer bar combinations (I use them as eye shadows. The cost $25 but I picked mine up for just $10 bucks. The first color palette is Tropical Truffle and the second is called Thin Mints.

Then I picked up a few Status Glosses as Too Faced calls them. From top to bottom the colors are Private Jet, Champagne Wishes and Billionaire Boyfriend. These will set you back $19.50, but I paid $4 bucks....GO ME!!!

The last gloss you see laying across the top is a Diamond Gloss in the color White. For you MAC heads...MAC came out with a Dazzleglass in the color She-zam which is described as sheer sliver gloss with silver and red pear. This Diamond gloss is a great dupe and I only paid $4 for it....the regular cost is $14.

If you want to try Too FAced Cosmetics, use this coupon code TFVINTAGE between 11/9/09-11/22/09 and get 20% off. Happy Shopping!!

My Favorite NARS Blushes

Monday, October 26, 2009 0

Since I am not allowing myself to purchase any type, makeup, skin...NOTHING until Spring 2010, I figured I would get my product junkie fix by sharing with you my favorite blushes by NARS Cosmetics.

Crazed (raspberry red with shimmer)

Cactus Flower(shimmery poooy)

Taos (desert rose with shimmer)

Taj Mahal(burnt orange with shimmer)

I'm so sick! (cough, cough)

OMG, I am so daughter recently got over pneumonia and bronchitis and now I have the flu.

I think I jinxed myself by telling someone "Mother's aren't allowed to get sick, we don't have that luxury"...well, the joke is on me, because I am ill!

But what if I did get too sick, too sick to take my daughter to school, or pick her up, or take her to after school programs? What would I do? I guess Mothers are allowed to get sick, just not TOO sick.

To this day we have no idea when my mother is sick or in any real pain. She's spent so many years taking care of everyone else, that she's learned to mask her pain.

My mother was lying in the hospital after a hysterectomy (with NO PAIN KILLERS), and when asked if she was in any pain her response, "just a little discomfort". Ummm, MOM, they just removed your uterus, you don't have any pain relief, and all you feel is a 'little discomfort'? Either ma is a soldier FOR REAL, or she's just learned that her pain doesn't exist.

I swear to you, the day after she was released from the hospital, she was rearranging the living room furniture...nuts!

I've decided that my pain is real, my throat really hurts, my chest is really congested and my body truly aches...I am going to be a big baby about it, and someone's going take care of me...dammit!

Any volunteers? LOL
