postheadericon Selling (almost) All My Mineral Makeup!

I have waaaay too much makeup, and would really like to unload most of my collection. I have no more space in my corner of the bedroom!!

Just about all of the mineral makeup (MMU) that I am selling below has hardly been used (or not used at all) except for swatching using a cleaned brush. The downside is that nothing is in original jars. As you will/can see, I have transferred my MMU into matching square jars and wrote the color names on the lids so that I can view the color and the name at once. You will get the actual jar in the photo.

First come, first serve. Please email me at nguyenlekim at gmail dot com and I will make sure what you want is available and then I can email you a PayPal invoice. Shipping is a flat $3.00 in the US only (if you are international and would still like to purchase, please email me). Please click on the images to get a larger view of my collection.

MMU from the company formerly known as The She Space

All eyeshadows - $1 each
There is a catch... some colors are full sized in the 3 gram square jars, and some were ordered as samples that have been placed in the same square jars. Since I really don't want to sort them out by samples and full sized, they are all $1 each and at least they are in jars. Sorry for this! This just makes it easier... and even sample sizes were pretty plentiful.

The jars below on the right with labels facing up are The She Space colors in original jars:

postheadericon Halloween 2010

I didn't do anything spectacular and I only dressed up for the Halloween party at work. Here's what I did for Halloween this year:

Eye shadow colors were from the Urban Decay Naked Palette (I was in a hurry so didn't take note of the colors I used), lashes were from Sally Beauty (Halloween "Dark Angel" lashes), and the rhinestones were actually nail decals from Sally Beauty that I glued on my skin using eyelash glue.

And I went as a Heavenly Devil:

The lashes were fun but I couldn't see very well!

postheadericon Urban Decay Book of Shadows Volume III: NYC

I finally received my Book of Shadows III on Friday after ordering it from Sephora last week. What totally got me to buy it at all was the NYC theme of it. I LOVE NYC! It's a wonderful place to visit, shop, eat, and just do everything. I have tons of family there that I don't get to see often, and I've been there so many times when i was younger.

This is my first UD Book of Shadows, so I don't know how it compares to the previous ones. All I can say about this one is that it is a bit heavier than it looks. One of the colors, Uzi, has a lot of fallout and I had a wee bit of trouble swatching that particular color. As usual for UD, you get the eyeliner in Zero (black), and this time, a really awesome electric purple (Ransom). I've been using my Primer Potion from the Naked Palette since I got it, so another one comes along at just the right time.

Other then Uzi, I really like all the colors and look forward to using this more. Though my Naked Palette has been my go-to for a couple of months now, it will be nice to reach for something else as well.

This palette can be found at Sephora, Ulta, and Urban Decay websites.

postheadericon Life got in the way!

Well, I've pretty much used nothing but the UD Naked Palette since I bought it! I've happily adjusted to my new job, but haven't really felt the urge to play with much makeup. But the urge always comes back eventually!

I'll start swatching again soon.

postheadericon Urban Decay Naked Palette & Swatches

Not like this palette needs another review in the beauty blogging world, but oh well!

At my new job, makeup is much more conservative so I don't think I can get away with crazy pinks and greens and blues on my brown eyes. Also, I have to be at work an hour earlier than my old job... and unfortunately I LOVE TO SLEEP. Flying loose minerals isn't gonna cut it for me in the wee early mornings. These reasons are the perfect excuse for splurging on this palette ($44). Also, my new job has an on-site fitness center that I plan to utilize eventually, and I can just toss this palette in the gym bag to do my makeup before heading back out.

My pressed makeup for beauty in a rush is complete! I have my Lumiere pressed foundation and pressed blush, this neutral palette, and a lip gloss and I'm good to go!

This palette is available at Urban Decay, Sephora, and eventually at Ulta. This is supposed to be a permanent palette, which is a good thing because I can see myself using up the thing!

For $44, the palette contains 12 full sized UD eyeshadows... which normally at $17 a piece would equal $204, and that's before the included sample of UD Primer Potion AND double ended 24/7 eyeliners in Zero (black) and Whiskey (brown)! Value-wise, this is excellent! And fortunately for me, I don't own a single one of these colors except for the Zero eyeliner.

Colors in this palette are very pigmented, and doesn't take much to achieve desired color. I love that this palette has shimmer, satin, and matte shades. The combinations are endless!

Since I bought this today, I can't really comment on how well it wears, but it's Urban Decay, it should last! I do look forward to my 2nd week on the job wearing these new colors! Anyway, enough rambling... on to photos!
