Mascara Comparison

Hey guys! I thought this might be a fun thing to do, and boy was I shocked after I did it! I really was expecting one of the higher end brands to completely knock out the drug store brands, but I was wrong!

Makeup Storage

Hey guys. This is just a quick one about my makeup storage. I found my newest storage cart at Target for $13.99..an awesome deal, I think! Before I was using two of the smaller 8 1/2 x 11 three drawer ones, which worked OK but it took up too much space on my desk. I really love my new cart since I can roll it out of the way when I’m not using it..an awesome plus for people who don’t have much space, like me. I found the black dividers at Walmart, though an awesome commenter let me know that she found some at the .99 cent store! The silver pen holder in the bottom drawer was actually from Walmart, though for some reason I said Office Max. I’m sure you could find it just about anywhere, though.

Lets break down the approximate cost for everything :
Storage cart : $14
Silver pen holder : $6
Four black dividers $4
= $24!

Much better than buying a huge train case if you don’t cart your makeup around with you!

I hope you guys enjoy this, I know I love seeing how other people store their makeup because it always inspires me to switch everything up once in a while! I’m sorry it’s such a mess, I don’t think I have it quite like I want it just yet..but you’ll get a general idea of how much room is in this little sucker!

Migi Nail Art – Paint Splatter

migipaintsplatter

Hey guys! Here is my first shot at the Migi Nail Art pens. I honestly cannot even begin to tell you how AWESOME these are. I wanted to do something that was quick and easy but used as many colors as possible, so here you go! I used every color in the black set except for the peach.

Each set of nail art pens comes with a small booklet that has a practice page in the back. I’ve come up with a few things that I will definitely be letting you guys know about soon, so keep an eye out for those!

Calypso Minerals Swatches

EDIT January 2010

As you may know, Calypso Minerals has sadly become an untrusted company. This post is from September of 2009, where I completely encouraged ordering these shadows, as they really are amazing. I could have never possibly known what would happen to some of you guys, several of you out large sums of money. I have received more than one comment telling me how wrong and unfair it is to still support this company by leaving this post up, but I will not be taking it down as you can no longer buy the products anyway. I may recommend something, but it is based on my personal taste and experiences with something. It is up to you to make the decision to purchase something, and you are always buying at your own risk. Any comments regarding this will be deleted promptly.

The last I have heard, Jen is working on refunding people or sending their products to right the situation.

Hey guys! This is my very first package from Calypso Minerals, and I can not even begin to tell you how excited I was to try these. After watching vintageortacky open her package and seeing her first reaction, I knew these shadows were not going to disappoint. I placed my order a couple of weeks ago, and since Jen was so backed up she was kind enough to include some extras! To say I was floored when I started swatching these isn’t good enough..I can’t believe the quality at such a great price.
