--Did you try the highlighter on your lids? It would also look nice over lipstick in the Cupids Bow. I didn't try the mascara because I hate to give up my Buxom for the day. I will though.
Honestly I don't bother with makeup techniques like that because I can barely keep gloss alone on long enough. LOL
The mascara smudged a bit on my lower lashes but held up very well on the upper. I can live with that. So far the only one that has ever stayed on the lower is a tube mascara.
Ok, I figure the mineral veil is $20 and the mascara is $18, if I add the return shipping of about $6.95 we're getting close to the cost of the entire kit........Wore the blush today and at first I thought it looked nice but then realized I had not really applied enough. I do that a lot. I plan on wearing the kit tomorrow. I also like the brush to apply the mineral veil and could really use a brush.
-I'm going to say it leans more warm. I don't see the coolness in it at all, but I could be wrong. Yes, I am purchasing it
I also see warmth to it but don't think its too warm. I can do some warmth on the eyes just not on the lips and cheeks. Shades with some warmth tend to pop blue eyes. Its the contrast. I think its something about these shades themselves that cooler toned woman feel they can wear. I read alot of comments and reviews and those with fair/cool skin seem to want to give it a try.
-. We will discuss anything we want to buy with each other before buying, this will keep us in check! I really want to buy NOTHING until then. I have enough clothes, cosmetics and other stuff for a year or longer, I'm sure of it. You don't stockpile like I do, so we really don't have to weigh pros and cons with you like we do with me. lol I really think this is the best time of year to shop and if we can hold off, it will truly be an exciting experience.
Honestly I wonder if going on a no-buy for a year its just too long for you? Its like going cold turkey. LOL I can completely understand that you want to buy nothing until next fall and yes it would be a great feeling. If it seems to hard, rather than throwing in the towel you could allow yourself one or two purchases in the spring and or summer when new shades etc come out. Basically shorter term goals. Of course you could consider non purchase/cosmetic rewards at intervals for yourself to help stay focused.
I still want to lose some more weight but late last summer it was getting harder and because I kept going on I rewarded myself at Pandora. I wanted the new bangle and an owl charm. It meant alot to me when I bought them.
The thing is that alot of makeup really isn't that much different from others. We need to regularly review what we have and just stay out of the beauty stores and cosmetic counters. You could be going through things to where containers are empty, tossed and then onto what else you already have. That would be a great feeling. We can do it but don't tell me AFTER you've bought something.
