General Video Improvements

I’m going to attempt using my Sony Mini DV to start doing videos! I’m not entirely sure how well the compression will be in relation to uploading on youTube! Another words quality may very well be too much for little old youTube to handle! But since the vids have gotten so popular I may just serve them from my own server and you can have them in all their beauty and glory minus bad compression from youTube. It’s entirely debatable at this point as I’m quite busy lately and haven’t much time to fiddle! I’ve also got a few comments about the videos making you feel slightly like a milkshake as I wriggle it around from here to there and everywhere! Soooooooo..recording using the Mini DV will make life easier as I can set it down and babble about everything and anything where as with the digital camera I have to hold it on my hand while speaking!

Let’s see what happens 😉

Stila Fall Fantasy 2007

Stila’s Fall Collection, Fall Fantasy, is up on it’s website and available for purchase!

Laguna

Madagascar

Moss

It’s hard to get into the Fall frame of mine when it’s still 90 degrees outside my door but hey I can always be tempted by cosmetics right?

Sadly, this collection isn’t really calling my name and I’m not all that excited about it. It truly makes me realize how much I miss the Stila girls and the cute packaging of yesteryear.

The three palettes are kind of cute but too “grown up” for my tastes. Plus the moss palette looks similar, both in color and style, to the palette that was released last fall in the wallet style!

These are something you might want to pick up if you find them on sale at a Cosmetics Company Store, during the Stila Warehouse Sale, or just if they happen to pop up on E-bay for a really good price. Otherwise, you can probably just skip them all together in my humble opinion!

Oh well..bit of money saved here!

Looking Pretty Doesn’t Break Bad Habits

I’m a true girly girl in ever sense of the word! I love cosmetics, I love bath products, I love new shoes and gorgeous clothes, I love all girly bits and bobs! Anything that’s pink and shimmers is always appealing!

The extent of my girly nature ends when it comes to doing my nails! I’m a big time nail biter! I bite my nails constantly! It’s a terrible habit that’s difficult to break! Not only is it terrible but it’s down right disgusting!

This weekend I went away a few days with some friends and decided that I’d get all glam and do my nails. The good news is that it made my chubby little fingers look long and lean. The bad news is it drove me nuts all weekend trying to relearn how to use my hands with such long nails on the tips!

Last night, after getting home, I began the intricate surgery of removing these bloody things! It obviously wasn’t going to be an easy procedure so I went to bed very unhappy!

This morning I came to work with what remained of these nails on and promptly sat in the washroom for the better part of the last 30 minutes popping them off one by one because I am unable to work with these freaking things on!

I give huge kudos and props to those of you who are able to function day to day with long nails! As for me I’ll stick to my bad habits and keep chomping away at the bit…!

MAC Painterly and In3D

So…………..I went against my word in my prior blogs about Painterly and In3D and I went ahead and purchased some of the bits and bobs that were released!

First off I should say that I’m not completely sold on Painterly yet! Lots of tugging to be had during application which kinda freaks me out! But I’ve decided maybe applying with a brush is the way to go with these! You can see my very first review and FOTD with Delft in a prior blog! When I seen the display basically some of the colors sorta screamed at me and thus I walked away with 4 colors!

Greenstroke
Artifact
Moss Scape
Construtivist

These are great colors and I’m looking forward to trying to convince myself to love these!

I also ended up snatching up some of the new technakohls because really we can never have too many eyeliner pencils right?

I ended up getting:
Plank
Foxtail
Antiquity

I also happened to fall in love with In3D! These shocked me as I’m not normally MAC’s biggest cheerleader when it comes to their glosses! But these are a good solid product and I think they should keep this formula around! It doesn’t have the normal sponge applicator but a brush like applicator which I love! I always feel like a brush applicator catches more product and you don’t have to keep dipping and layering! Some of the colors were just really gorgeous and pretty pigmented to the point that you won’t need stain or lipstick under these!

The colors I ended up getting were:
Racy
In3D
Boundless
Apex
Wondershine

I did rant a bit in my last blogs about these new color stories but overall a nice haul of products this time so I take back some of the rants 😉

MuseTV decided it wanted it’s time in the spotlight as well so I present a video of MAC’s newest color stories (Sorry for my lack of enthusiasm I’m just dead tired tonight so these videos aren’t so great)!

Enjoy!
