A lot of people weigh in about the possibility of Orglamix repackaging.

      Probably the MAC Club Dupe from the Wet n Wild Night Elf palette which I’m wearing with a matte brown on the lid and bright orange in the crease.

      2. Best book/game/movie you’ve read/played/watched recently?

      I re-read A Brave New World last week, it was interesting to go back to it after hating it at school. And my fiance is trying to get me in Magic cards which is fun.

      3. Tell me about your night time moisturizer.
      I’m just using the same one as I’m using in the day at the moment, for shame! It’s just a cheap Boots cucumber one currently, but its doing the job!

      4. Name your current guilty pleasure.

      Jessie J! I know she’s not really a guilty pleasure but she’s got an awesome voice and her makeup is really fun.

      5. Any plans for the weekend?
      I’m doing bohemian style makeup for a test shoot tomorrow and then I’m going to spend Sunday making cupcakes and rice krispie treats! :)

      4. Name your current guilty pleasure. Hmmm. I have been eating comfort food this week. Pot Pie, Potato Chips, Steak. Total PMS week that won’t end. :)
      5. Any plans for the weekend? Hopefully some rest. And some sunshine. I’d like to finally get my personal areas organized, but I never seem to be able to do so.

      • Phyrra

        Man, I love pot pie but I rarely eat it these days!

      1. What’s your favorite makup product that you’re wearing today?

      Not wearing any makeup as a bit unwell and have breakouts. However I did use Palmers Cocoa Butter which smells and feels fab

      2. Best book/game/movie you’ve read/played/watched recently?

        I loved both of those movies!

    • LAURIE

      How funny about your nails! I am wearing CG Solar Power alternated with For Audrey with CG Cracked Concrete on top!

      1. What’s your favorite makeup product that you’re wearing today?

      Well I’m not wearing any eye makeup (which is super uncharacteristic!–ophthalmologist appointment), so probably the PINK blush from Meow Cosmetics in Slip.

      2. Best book/game/movie you’ve read/played/watched recently?

      This is going to sound really lame, since I’m pretty sure you meant “video” game, but I apparently kick some major booty at Apples to Apples. Played for the first time in my life and annihilated the competition. I am a word MASTER.

      3. Tell me about your night time moisturizer.

      I’m using Yes to Blueberries Overnight Hydrating Cream, as well as just a little jojoba oil. I remove my makeup with the oil, but it tends to sink into my skin a bit. They work pretty well together, though, for my super-dry skin.

      4. Name your current guilty pleasure.

      *shifty eyes* Mindless Self Indulgence. A friend gave me a copy of “If” and it’s like I’m 16 all over again…

      5. Any plans for the weekend?

      Supposed to go to a concert tomorrow, but I might bail. Because I’m lame and hate fun. And because I’d rather sit in my house and play with makeup. XD

      1. What’s your favorite makup product that you’re wearing today?
      Hard Candy 1,000 Lashes primer. And it’s not makeup, but I am loving Jergens Naturals Skin Renewing daily moisturizer — actually, I applied it last night and my hands are STILL soft. It’s winter and below freezing so this is awesome.

      2. Best book/game/movie you’ve read/played/watched recently?
      100 Classic Books collection on Nintendo DS

      3. Tell me about your night time moisturizer.
      Olay Replenishing Night Creme. No complaints.

      4. Name your current guilty pleasure.
      Coffee? It helps me function, so it’s not too much of a guilty pleasure.

      5. Any plans for the weekend?
      Hopefully get to working on my blog!

      • Phyrra

        I hope you have a great weekend!

      1. What’s your favorite makup product that you’re wearing today? My eyeshadow looks really good today…or at least I think so :) Concrete Minerals’ Juvenile over NYX JEP in horseradish on the lid and Sugarpill’s Afterparty on the lower lashline…bright and fun.

      2. Best book/game/movie you’ve read/played/watched recently?
      Currently reading “Switched” by Amanda Hocking. It’s nothing earth shattering but it’s decently entertaining.

      3. Tell me about your night time moisturizer.
      At night, I slather on Eucerin to my face and hands (then I put my hands in gloves). I have really bad eczema on my face all winter and psoriasis on my hands.

      4. Name your current guilty pleasure.
      Watching Veronica Mars on Netflix with my daughter, Addy..

      5. Any plans for the weekend?
      Just spending time at home with the family until I go back to work on Sunday morning.

      • Phyrra

        Yay for Veronica Mars!

    • UneLuneBleue

      1. What’s your favorite makup product that you’re wearing today?
      I’m bare-faced, so I’m going to have to go with my nail polish which is Cult Nails ‘My Kind of Cool Aid’ on the tips, and I’m getting ready to put on Zoya’s ‘Ivanka’ for St. Patty’s Day!
      2. Best book/game/movie you’ve read/played/watched recently?
      None/none/none, I lead a very dull life, lol.
      3. Tell me about your night time moisturizer.
      Changes every other night, as I’m doing this new peel thing every other night, on that night I use some mild moisturizer meant for after a peel, the name escapes me. The other nights, I do my Clinique dark spot eraser then the Kinerase C8 Peptide treatments. I have oily skin, so I do more of a ‘spot treatment’ thing, I worry mainly about the eye area for moisturizer.
      4. Name your current guilty pleasure.
      M&Ms Peanut Butter, for some reason I’m craving them like mad lately. I’m pretty sure it’s not PMS time, so no clue what that’s about, lol. Otherwise it’s goofing on the internet or buying makeup and nail polish, as always.
      5. Any plans for the weekend?
      Shopping with my best friend on Sunday, that’s about it!
      Have a good weekend!

      • Phyrra

        Peanut Butter M&Ms sound tasty!

      1) What’s your favorite makup product that you’re wearing today?
      LOL! No makeup today – Boscia Daily Hand Revival Therapy SPF 15 – not the most moisturizing, might have been a gift or freebie. And NYX (hehe!) on the tips – looks greyish blue green in the bottle, but frosty green on my nails.

      2) Best book/game/movie you’ve read/played/watched recently?
      I finished The Apprentice by Jacques Pepin and DH is reading it. I recommend! Now reading The Language of Baklava by Diana Al-Jaber. Lady can write, and yes, it, too is about food. Another recommend.

      3) Tell me about your night time moisturizer.
      Still Amarte Aqua Veil Pure Hydration Serum. It’s light and I have to layer it on 2 other RX things.

      4) Name your current guilty pleasure.
      Hmmm, I think I’m going for coffee or lunch tomorrow after errands, all by myself! Or is that 5)?

      5) Any plans for the weekend?
      Have fun at the wedding! Rounding up the last tax document for my mother (sigh), then we might catch Javier Bardem in “Biutiful” and definitely out for dinner, as I have cooked dinner or we’ve eaten leftovers every night this week except Sunday. And at least 2 of those were meatless!

    • Phyrra

      Yay for you getting ‘me’ time :)
