A Little Luxury (Haul)

I bought some fancy makeup recently.

First, my little haul from Beautylish.  If you are ever considering buying something from Beautylish (, you should totally do it.  They have free 2-day shipping on orders over $35 USD.  Everything was packed really carefully, and they even included a personalized note.  Oh, and if you create an account, you receive a $10 off a $50 purchase promo coupon thingy.

The little bag was slightly ripped, but there was so much padding around it that there was no damage to anything.

Sparkly Purple!

One of my favorite shadows of all time is Darling Girl Cosmetics "Here's Johnny".  It's a gorgeous, very sparkly purple.  Whenever I wear it, I spend entirely too much time looking in the mirror with my eyes half closed admiring the beauty that it is.  I never like taking it off at night!  My husband also loves it, and always comments on how awesome it is when I wear it.  I wore this makeup for date night last week.

Grungy Gold Eye of the Day

I haven't done a simple floating eyeball post in a while.  This ended up being kind of "dirty gold" because I used a dark brown base (Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Bark) on the lid which obviously darkened the gold quite a bit.  I think it looked kind of cool.

Another Vice 3 Look of the Day and a Matt Groening Reference

Hey peeps!  Wuzzon?  It's been a while, huh?  Anyhow, I thought I'd share a face of the day with you that I did a few weeks ago (that's how far behind I am).

Lab Work Time

We're getting ready to put some more Venus flytrap seeds in tissue culture, so last weekend we mixed and prepared the growing medium.  It's quite a process, but rather fun.

We take safety seriously when performing our lab work.  But not our hair.

Wakeup Carnivorous Plants!

It's time for the carnivorous plants to wakeup from dormancy, come out of the basement, and get out into the real sun.  Most of them are already showing new growth, and the little Pingicula grandiflora is blooming!

The ping!  (The little black dots on the leaves in the background are tiny bugs the ping "caught" over the winter in the root cellar.)

Tarina Tarantino Face of the Day

Everything I used on my face makeup-wise for this look is Tarina Tarantino.  Well, not everything.  Not the base products or mascara.  So, all the fun stuff.  Not that foundation, powder, or mascara isn't fun.  I mean I'm not trying to trash talk about foundation, powder, and mascara, but they're not as interesting as colorful stuff, right?  Know what I'm sayin'?
