Once again my nails have been nekked for days. Mom was here this past weekend and wore me out like she always does! We shopped literally all day Saturday, then did online shopping Sunday morning and then planted fifty tulips.
I'm still recovering.
At least I know what I'm getting for Christmas! Three different Philosophy perfumes-yeah that's my brand for all things perfume and body lotion. We went to Sephora as I wanted to be color matched for the Color FX foundation. I got that for myself. The Kat Von D contour palette was an early present that I get to use now. Yeah it's awesome.
I'm not too sure about the new foundation yet. I prefer a matte finish and this is more dewy. Plus it was $40 for one ounce where the L'Oreal Infallible I like is $12. You do the math. I think I have decided I am going to mix the two and most likely won't buy another Color FX one again. But I've only worn it twice so far.
The first time I tried using a brush, the second with my beauty blender. I so prefer the beauty blender but man so many people use a brush for foundation. Maybe I'm not using enough product with the brush?
Oh and get this. I ordered two new brushes from Morphe Brushes. I love their palettes as I have two of them. The palettes are sent carefully wrapped in double bubble wrap and tons of peanuts. The brushes came in a cheap bubble envelope with no cushioning. One brush is fine the other came in two pieces. The brush part had separated from the handle.
I literally was on hold for thirty minutes trying to get a customer service rep on the phone. I started as caller number 30! Now that makes me think that way too many people have problems with this company. But maybe that's just me.
Anywho, after all that waiting I finally get a person and get this-I'm told I have to take pictures and email this special address and someone will get back to me via email. Now the brush is broken I have no problem with the pictures whatever. But normally a reputable company will just apologize and send out a new brush no questions asked.
Why not Morphe?
Are you really believing that I am trying to steal a goddamn $12 brush from you? Wow.
It has literally been two days since I sent the email with no reply. I resent it this morning. The email was quite pissy and I meant every word I said in it. I will never ever buy a brush from them again.
I really want to post the broken brush picture on my Instagram and try to shame them but I'm such a small account they wouldn't even notice. I still may though.
I'll let you know.
Here are two looks I wore this past week.
This first one I simply used a light brown shimmer shadow and added a pop of purple in my waterline. I love doing that. I plan of doing some of the far out colorful looks I see on Instagram that can't be worn to work!
This one isn't quite color accurate. Picture brick red and orange shimmer. This one I didn't quite get the lashes where they are supposed to be. I am getting to be a lot better at popping them on with no problem lately. I put the glue on and then I do my brows while the glue gets tacky about 2 minutes. It's a fat lie that you only need to wait for 30 seconds!
I hope you have enjoyed these eye looks!
Until next time people. Any thoughts out there?
