When I was at my folks place a couple weeks ago, my sister gave me a huge bag of makeup.

I looked at her with a bewildered expression and just shrugged.  

When I got home, and really took a look at it, I was shocked.

I am sure the makeup she gave me is worth well over one million dollars*.

*I have no idea the actual value of makeup.  But I like saying one million dollars in my best Dr. Evil voice.



People make eyeshadow in a liquid form??

Well just color me informed.  And dusty gray while you're at it.


And this stuff actually makes your lips BIGGER! I put some on and it felt like someone had punched me in the mouth.

But in a good way.

Ya know.  Cause it was pretty. 

So yeah, I pretty much have no excuse now.  I better go and figure out what is what.  I have a sneaking suspicion that the lip liner I tried on is actually eye liner.

Details, details.

  1. Hey this is Eric. Just stumbled upon your blog and found quite funny stuffs out here. Find you have such a good collection of makeup ! Will visit your blog later again.

  2. always being a misunderstood hippy chic growing up in a small town that emphasized appearance and make-up, i rebelled as a teenager by NOT wearing any…and still don’t…but there are those days when i come across a wonderful bright tomato red orange color lipstick (usually a colored lip gloss that once applied doesn’t hold the color i’m hoping for) that i reconsider…looking forward to your experimentation…i’m sure you are much more talented than me in this area!

  3. Hello Friend,
