So, for my 26th birthday, I treated myself with a trip to Vegas, but at the last second I decided to extend my vacation and fly to San Francisco from Vegas to visit Anisha! I was so sick with a cold once I got there, but thankfully she keeps a small pharmacy in her apartment. Once I was feeling better I met up with Anisha at work and we went makeup shopping!

So tempted, I just went ahead and added it to my cart. I really have no self control, haha.

I ended up keeping the eyes pretty subtle favoring shimmery, neutral shades and went all out on the lips. I ditched the traditional lip […]

Most people get electronics on Black Friday/Cyber Monday... Me? I get makeup. Sugarpill had a pretty decent 30% sale going on, so I took the opportunity to get a few Loose Eyeshadows. Fortunately, three of the shades I got were actually included in the Zillionaire Loose Eyeshadow Trio - Junebug, Goldilux, and Hysteric. The other Sugarpill Loose Eyeshadow I purchased was Asylum.
