i don't know why buying new makeup

is so much fun, but it just is!

i think it's one of those things that just makes being a girl totally awesome! and i'm not an obsessive makeup person either.

but this weekend, i went to the MAC counter to get a new lipliner- all the while KNOWING in the back of my mind that i'll be browsing their new lipstick colors, eyeshadows, and whatever the hell else i apparently can't live without. it's like i can't get within 3 feet of a MAC counter, without wanting to check out every.single.product.there. the best part though? usually, i grab things i already own. i'll think something is "so pretty" and then i'll look at the name of it and realize "ha! i already have that!!" i'm sure my wallet let out a sigh of relief everytime i realized i had something that i wanted already. so, 1 lipliner, 1 new lipstick and 3 new eyeshadows later, i'm heading home to play.

and my giddiness carries over into the next morning, when i get out my tackle box (that's what i call the thing that holds all my makeup) and see all the new things in there! there's something about having new things. new colors. new fun stuff to put on your face that just makes me smile.

it's the little things people. the little, expensive, mac-tactular things.

what kind of makeup do you love?? i pretty much can't live without MAC and bare escentials.

Since we just bought a house, I have had to go from Bare Minerals to L'Oreal's minerals. Other than that I just use mascara. I sometimes give into the girly part of me and buy liners, shadows and such, but it only lasts about 2 days before I go back to my minimalist behavior. It boils down to sleep - I would rather sleep an extra 3 minutes than spend time on my eyes! I am lucky if I pull out the blow dryer, most days the hair goes into a clip. I am so bad at being a girl :(

I'm bare minerals. I love it. However I might have to try a new mineral makeup as procuring it seems to be difficult.

I'm not into make up. :( I wear basic mascara by Maybelline...you know, in the pink and green tube. And, my lipstick is usually the free samples my mother-in-law gets when she spends a fortune at the Lancome counter.

I don't tend to wear much more than mascara most days. However, when I do wear more than that I'm am all about the MAC love. That stuff is just thee bestest.

I get giddy when I walk by Sephora! It's my "candy shop". Love Stila, Cargo, Bare Escentials, Urban Decay, Benefit and oh so many others.

I was using bare minerals, but I hate the whole knock & shake thing. I wanted to have a compact to carry in my purse for touch ups.

so I'm a clinique gal. I know, so early 90's of me. LOL

i do like mac shadows, though.
