I played with blues and teals today, favorites from Sugarpill, Fyrinnae and Evil Shades. I also tried a different technique with my eyebrows, thanks to Ana suggesting that I try something that Petrilude did in a video. I used Urban Decay’s 24/7 liner in Zero lightly to define my brows and then used an angled eye shadow brush to sort of soften the edges. I actually think the black looks pretty natural.

I really love how my lips turned out.

I took a couple pix of the back of my hair. Now that it’s dyed, it looks blue-black, the way it should look.

I also got some fun things recently.

First, Kim from OverallBeauty sent me some lash primer, mascara and eye shadows to try out, in addition to some nail wheels. I LOVE nail wheels :)

Next, I received a small order that I’d placed with Suds n’ Sass.

It was for wax breakaway tarts in Cuddley Blue Poodle & Into the Woods, Pumpkin Sass shower stuff, Night Elf Eye Shadow and Get UR Freak on Eye Shadow. She also sent me a Creamy Pumpkin tart and a tiny Honey (I think) soap sample. And of course, an adorable halloween card.

I received a bracelet from Krista to try out that she and her husband made. It’s made of leather with handset rivets.

I also received my monster Cold Heart Palette that I purchased from Sugarpill.

The palette is in pretty good shape, aside from Bulletproof being cracked in a few places and a small chip in Tako.

Also, after asking you all for help, researching online, and discussing with Ray and Dave, I decided to get the Remington flat iron with the automatic shut off. I also spoke the the sales lady at Ulta, after I’d looked at all the flat irons there (she was pushing Chi). I also picked up a matte ink blue pencil by Smashbox and some spray wax (though they were out of the spray wax my stylist recommended.

Anyway, for a monday, this has been a fairly good day. It’s been nice to start the week without a crisis.

How about you? How are you?
