New Make Up Obsession

So I’ve somehow developed an obsession with make-up in the last year.  I’ve been experimenting with colors and lines, and I can’t get enough; it’s so damn fun!!  Usually, I take the advantage of the weekends when I go out with friends to do crazy things with colors.  Sephora is like my playground, last time I was there, I think I managed to stay three hours until I realized- oh shit, I should get back to reality.  And then there’s M.A.C., of course.  Every time I walk into these stores I will walk out with multicolored lids, or shimmery cheeks, or glossy lips, if not all of the above (depending on the amount of time I have to spend).  I continue to purchase my share of colors and pallets, but now I’ve moved on to the more of what I call “short term” expenses.  Brushes.  They are really expensive.  (The long term expenses being the colors and pigments because the purchase of these items add up to a lot in the long run).  With the makeup brushes, especially good quality, award winning ones, you’re putting up a lot for one purchase, but you’ll only purchase one.  Anyway, being a broke college student, this price tag causes frustration and heartache on my part, especially now  that I have found a sincere joy in this creative outlet.  The other day I found this guy on youtube who is kind enough to share his wisdom.  EnKoreMakeup’s series of videos offer money-saving tips, make-up advice, and experimenting ideas.  I am loving this one about alternatives to expensive brushes…

 

K.  I’m on my way to Michael’s…

Anticipated Albums

Coldplay\'s Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends Album I have been waiting so long for Coldplay‘s next album and finally the time has come!  They will be dropping Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends on the 12 in the UK and the 17 in N. America (the album was available for pre-order since the end of May on itunes). 

 

 

 

 

 

 

AND I’m so excited to hear what N.E.R.D.’s creativity has spawned this time.  I’ve been hooked on the “Everyone Nose” Remix featuring Kanye West, Pusha T, and Lupe Fiasco, and recognized their sound on the new commercial for Zune which featured one of their new tracks titled “Spaz”.  I can’t wait to blast Seeing Sounds in my car come the 10th…
