Before you roll your eyes (as it will be inevitable by the time you've read this mini-rant), lemmie tell ya something. I've hated birthdays since I hit 20. I've got a bit of a "Peter Pan" syndrome and can't stand getting older. I've been in a midlife crisis since I grew out of being a teen, haha. I've always thought that by the time I hit 30 I should have all my shit in order or something. This past year, I've been mildly
Anyway, I may hate birthdays but even someone with a skewered outlook at life like myself loves to get presents, like this one:
Welcome home, Urban Decay Book of Shadows numero dos! It is in every respect as gorgeous as I expected it to be, but alas, we have not had much time to get very acquainted. I blame finals. :<
I've also neglected to mention that I like circle lenses but have never really blogged about 'em. I only own one pair right now, and that's the Geo Nudy lenses in Gray.
This is my impression of a bug! :D
I'm kiddiiiiing. They're very flattering lenses! The first time I wore them I experienced some discomfort, but after that I had little problems adjusting to them. I don't wear them daily... maybe once a week, if that. They help distract from the dark circles I have under my eyes, which are somewhat distinct here because I'm not wearing any foundation.
I love the way they reflect light--very doll like. Also, I've been trying out a new foundation from Earthen Glow Minerals and I think Emily's a good match. I like the Youthful Glow formulation because I prefer a lighter coverage that's enough to just even out my skintone. It doesn't make the dry parts of my skin flaky either, but I seem to get kind of oily around my T-zone more than I do wearing other foundations, baw. I'll see what I can find that'll help remedy that, because this is really close to being a HG cold season foundation for me. ^-^
Last but not least, is this not the most awesome looking purple nail polish ever?
Milani's Totally Cool. Forgive it for its stupid name. It has an interesting blue-toned jelly base despite being predominantly dark purple and you need 3 coats before it's opaque and not streaky-looking in direct sunlight (realized this the hard way, hence why I lack nail pics). I love this color to death. Love love the color-shifting shimmers. Love. When you find it, get it. Cherish it. Never let it go. Your life is incomplete until you have this damn polish. Am I getting redundant yet? Why are you still reading this.. T__T
