I wandered over to visit my little friend Eru’s blog on myspace and she had thee most awesome youTube video up!
I don’t wanna steal her thunder and post her video here so if you’d like to see it visit her blog here.
Many brands I’ve done blogs on are featured in the video! You have to be sure to watch the complete video because at the end they feature awesome press on shadow! Now I’ve seen press on before and I can even get some here from Cargo! But these are amazing as they contain not 1 color but 3!
The Japanese are so innovative in all things and something as mundane as press shadow that has three shades just flips me out! Really a cool product!
If you aren’t familiar with press shadow here are ones that Cargo has released about two years ago or so:
Now the general idea of the color cards from Cargo are beauty simplicity at it’s best! However, this isn’t nearly as simple as the press shadows featured in the video! The Cargo cards are meant to be used with a brush or a fingertip! The ones in the video take this a step further by allowing you to press them onto your eye area, slip them off, blend with your finger tip a bit and PRESTO! gorgeous shadow!
This, my friends, is why Japanese brands get my money a majority of the time! Superb!
Do check it out and if you have a myspace account I’m sure Eru would appreciate your comments about whatcha think!
‘ello ‘ello friends!
Sleep is at the pub(I made that up! We don’t have pubs in New York! Pssstttt… Jonny doesn’t believe it but I’m trying to convince him! Help a girl out! Tell him yanks don’t do the pub scene!). Sleep is……..at the drug store picking up some beer for me, oh my I made that up too as I don’t drink! Wait wait a good excuse will come to me soon!
Pause for effect…………………………………….
Sleep is playing strip poker with Tammie and her juicy nipples! Wow…those of you who have no idea who Tammie is or her juicy nipples may have stumbled onto more than you bargained for! Eep
….I’m bracing myself for the family and friend phone calls tomorrow morning! Oh my how very unladylike of me to say juicy and nipples in the same sentence! And to think this originally started out in my feeble mind as being a blog about cosmetics! Oh brother!
I swear blogging is alot like talking to yourself. It’s all rather calming! I imagine as long as I don’t answer myself back I should be safe from the and the little men in white suits and all that stuff!
Oh..I am babbling aren’t I?
What was this about again……..
OH yes! I remember now!
Face of the Day Picture!
Without further delay I bring to you a new look:
What I Used:
Bare Minerals Glimmer in 2000 on Highbrow
Bare Minerals Glimmer in Bloom on Lid
Bare Minerals Glimmer in Azure in Crease
My Trusty MJ Mascara
Super simple one! It came out crap because I rushed it and just wasn’t into doing it! I normally put most of my heart into creating the looks but today I was just feeling tired! It came out alright for something rushed and done in a sloppy manner though!
Suggestions, Comments, Questions? My little ears are perked and at the ready!
I got around to using my #227 brush! Which is a freaking gem! I have to thank Leesha for that rec! She’s always saying how great the brush is in her you tube tutorials that I caved and purchased it! Holy cow! Great brush! I normally use the #224 or the #217but I think the #227 can possibly take over both of those brushes in my beauty arsenal! It’s really quite a little multitasker! Strongly suggest you grab one for yourself!
Most expensive brush in my collection. Why you ask? Because I freaking had to buy it twice!!!!!!!!
Funny story about the brush….I popped over to Macy’s to buy it after I left work the other day. So I’ve been sorta shit this week and I was just doing a quick run for the brush! I got there and my lovely boy Deanie (I guess gay men can get away with names like Deanie don’t ask me I dunno! I love him so lay off!) got me the brush! So I shell out my money…$32 bucks and change! Good price for a killer brush like this! I leave the store and I’m walking down 42nd Street and passing along Herald Square and I notice the bag feels freaking light. I dropped the bloody brush. Gone. Finished! Disappeared! I retraced my steps all the way back to the bloody MAC counter and didn’t find it! Some lucky girl is blending her heart out with my brush! I hope whoever found it is enjoying it! Anyway, to make a really long story short I ended up buying a new one! So this is probably the most expensive freaking brush in my collection! I’ve spent $55 on a brush, I’ve spent $30, I’ve spent $25, but never freaking $65 plus dollars! Oh lord! Someone shoot me in the forehead and put me out of my misery!
Anyway I’m babbling….I believe sleep hasn’t come home yet…damn Tammie and her nipples…..
I shall watch my telly until it decides to drag it’s sorry arse home! I’m putting my foot down this time! When it comes home I am not letting it out of my site for a good long while!
I’d like it to be known I’m a snobbish bitch. Yes I am and quite proud of my little self too!
Today’s rant is about E.L.F.
Pray tell, who the hell buys (or even thinks about) buying cosmetics that cost a $1? This is WRONG in so many ways! WRONG WRONG WRONG!
When you’re 12, 13, or 14 years old you have an excuse to purchase make-up that costs a dollar but when you’re in your older teenage years and into your twenties the excuses have RUN out!
If you’re buying $1 cosmetics it’s probably best just to strike a match and burn your money.
Get ye a job and stop buying cheap make-up for the love of god and all things holy!
That is all.
A friend of mine had mentioned this to me in an e-mail this weekend and it’s quite the most exciting news I’ve ever had the pleasure of spreading!
They have put it on their blog and I was just reading the details with feverish excitement!
The blog they posted has predicted that if it is released in the US the pricing might be slightly lower than it would be in Japan and truly I couldn’t be more excited to 1. Have local access to Jill Stuart Beauty Items and 2. Have them at a cheaper price!
I leave you with pretty Jill Stuart Porn from my Collection:
Happiness is the perfect shade of blush!
Gorgeous isn’t it? It’s on the top of my must have list! Just the name makes me wriggle in excitement!
