I bought some goodies from sephora today =D . Being that I'm a broke college student, my super awesome boyfriend was kind enough to let me spoil myself just a little bit. He hates buying me makeup more than anything because he says I've got too many. But what can i say, makeup makes me happy. Sorry babe ;)

My Prince Charming est. 030308

So technically I had a budget to stick by. I had to buy something I needed and didn't already have, and something I absolutely couldn't resist getting. This is what I ended up with...

I used to use the Laura Mercier Primer but always felt like it didn't do anything for my skin. From that experience, I got the impression that a facial primer just wasn't necessary. But lately I've been noticing that my foundation has been rubbing off very easily on things. My makeup left this huge brown stain on my son's white polo shirt this morning =/ . So I'm going to give this facial primer thing another try. Hopefully this Bare Escentuals Primer is a lot better.

I've had my eyes on this Too Faced Palette forever! The best part about it is that it comes with the shadow insurance (I'm almost out of my UDPP). What a coincidence right?! The shadows are just so vibrant. I just HAD to HAVE it!! *sigh* my boyfriend's going to be mad. I went over my budget =/

I've got class in a little bit so I probably won't get the swatches up until later. But believe me when I say that these colors are so gorgeous. Eeeek! I'm so excited!!


Here's the color swatches from my Too Faced Palette.

Top: Full Frontal, Socialite, Skinny Dip
Bottom: Glamazon, Boy Toy, Lucky Charms

I'll probably do a tutorial with them later on this week. The colors are so pretty!

oOh that palette looks gorgeous! Can't wait to see your swatches on them.

I've used the Bare Escentuals Primer for awhile and I did like it until I used Makeup Forever's primer and I felt it worked better for my skin. Hope this one works out for you!

The eye shadow palette looks really good! I love palettes because they're so portable. I feel the same way about face primers too...I'm not sure if they really work or not! Right now I'm using MAC's Prep + Prime skin which is okay (better than Smashbox's photo finish thing in my opinion). =)

I found you off of Suzit86 page. Just looking for girls who share similar interest. Let me know you like the Too Faced Palette. It sure looks pretty. Can't wait to see pictures.


I have the prime time and I don't know if its just me, but it doesn't do much for my skin either and it seems to make it even more oily and greasy.. hope it works for you :(
