FOTD: Mouthing Off Exotically (2/1/12)

I’m officially starting a makeup no-buy today, for the entire month. I did make some last-minute purchases in January, of stuff I *really* wanted to try, so I wouldn’t be as tempted to break the no-buy – but just the stuff I felt was honestly lacking from my stash. (So, there’s still a great long list of stuff I’d like to have that I didn’t get, and won’t be getting until at least March.) I’m not including skincare/cleansing type stuff, because 1-I need to keep my face clean, and 2-I don’t tend to go as crazy splurging on skincare. Plus, I’m pretty well covered right now: really liking the Clinique three-step system, and then I’ve got plenty extra lotions and potions for extra-moisturizing, spa nights, masks, exfoliation, etc. But no buying makeup – I’m shopping my stash this month! Which I’m actually pretty excited about, as it means I’ll be using stuff that doesn’t get nearly enough love. I’m also considering a P10P, but I haven’t decided which ten items to use. To be honest, I’m almost definitely going to do a P10P as well, but it won’t start today, as I’ve got to sit and look through my stash for stuff I can use ALOT. ANYWAY! Here’s the look I put together today.

FOTD: Sparkly, sparkly, catchee magpie (12/07/11)

A shitty day calls for sparkles, okay? (Even if the ones I’ve SLATHERED on my eyes in an attempt to get them to show up on camera, DON’T show up on camera. Oh well, sigh. That’s why you’ve got the cheek shot, so you can get a better idea of how they looked in real life. Also – aren’t the flakies in that lipgloss amazing?)

FOTD: pinky gold (11/22/11)

Someone’s dumbass (ahem) forgot to note what she used in this look. I *know* I used the awesome MUA palette (that Robyn sent me) in Dusk til Dawn, and I know I used a Hard Candy lipgloss. But, um, other than that….*crickets*. Sorry. But it was pretty! And that’s probably the L’Oreal Carbon Black Lineur Intense, since I don’t really use any other black liquid liner these days.

FOTD: No glasses for Kate (11/15/11)

I don’t even know where I get these “look titles.” Just pull them out of my ass, I guess. Sometimes I consider giving up and not doing them anymore, but…really, I just want to see how low I can go. Like, what’s the worst title of all time that I can come up. Which means I have to keep titling them, right, if at some point in the future (when, presumably, I’ve stopped blogging about FOTDs), I can look back and go, “OH YEAH, THAT ONE! It was the WORST! What an awful fucking name.” Anyway. This one, is from wearing a Kate Moss for Rimmel lipstick, and trying on the Warby Parker glasses. I didn’t even bother wearing any of them for a full day – I hated ALL of them, and so did Greg. Blecch. No bueno.
