My Vanity Setup...

Decided to re-organize my vanity (still a work in progress trying to get everything the way I want it) I figured I'd throw this post up because I know I love looking at peoples setup to get ideas.

I will post more pictures on some sample jar storage I have as well as where I keep my pigments and palettes later on.

Here's my first setup I had back in the first month of collecting....really fun to see what you started with and how out of control it can get in only a year or so lol.



Now for after a year or so of addiction....


New Haircut.....

My sister inlaw came over today...well yesterday considering it's now Sunday lol....but I haven't slept yet so it's still Saturday in my head. Anyway her, my brother, my fiance, and I all went out for sushi then we came back and her and I played around with makeup. Then the guys were playing a card game so we decided it would be a good idea to go get our hair cut...so here's a new hairstyle....not styled completely how I want since it's a little more flat on the top and not molded enough but I'll play with it more tomorrow!

Surprise Birthday Gifts Courtesy of my Fiance'

My Fiance had to drive an hour away to a mall near us to take back his iMAC to the Apple store due to it had issues so he told me to come along because its the only MAC closest to us. I had some birthday money (on a no buy otherwise trying to save funds) so I expected to maybe buy one thing myself.

Anyway we got to the MAC counter and I swatched Gimmie That, and Sassy Green because those were what I was planning on buying myself...so he asked the lady to get them for me and while they were doing that I swatched a Digi-Dazzle lipstick in Troublemaker because I was curious about them. That collection didn't seem that awesome to me because I'm not much of a lip person...when I swatched Troublemaker though the fiance came back and I told him to look at how pretty it was (It had alot of tiny glitter in it making it sparkly). So he tells the lady to grab that too...I was shocked because he had said early he could get anything for me (he had already given me money before to spend online ordering makeup for my birthday) so I was shocked that he was buying me 3 MAC things lol.

Anyway I ended up swatching Naughty You and decided on that one instead. So here's more birthday stuff...I really want a back up of Gimmie That! it's one that I got super excited about when I wore it...although I bought the last one from my store. :(





Swatched on my very pigmented lips below.


Gimmie That!


Naughty You

Note: Pictures don't do the sparkles justice...they are much more sparkly irl.

Birthday at Sephora....

So being that I get something for my birthday from Sephora every year (this year happened to be a card for a free birthday eye kit) and I happened to have a $15 gift card from my banking points I figured I would order something. I decided to order Nars Blush in Orgasm because I hear about it all the time.

Fyrinnae Haul of Goodness

Fyrinnae

I actually got this haul on July 14th but I've been behind and unorganized lately (I still have others like Sugarpill from months ago that I haven't posted yet) so here it is a little late but hopefully not unwanted lol.

Everything was packaged nice as always and the shadows and lip lustres were gorgeous as always. The only difference this time was the pretty sparkling bag they put them in.










I'm again very impressed with the color pay off of all their stuff and how gorgeous the shadows and Lip Lustres are...on a side note I haven't used my MAC pigments in over 4 months or more...

I have the rest of the shadow swatches to add but I had an issue when I originally swatched and forgot some...so I will add another picture soon.
