Heat distroying my make up...
This unbearable California heat has done it! It has wreaked havoc on my lippies. So its 102+ for the past week here. Normally the heat doesn't do much damage because usually it gets nice a cool at night. Usually in the mid 60s. But this past week it hasn't been cooling down at all. And...we don't have central air. So today while cleaning out and taking stock some of my lovely lippies fell victim to the consistent heat. Now I understand if I had carelessly left a lippy in the car in the heat or accidentally let one roll into the oven but they were just sitting there, in the room, minding their own business. *Sigh*    Anyone else have their make up ruined by external forces beyond your control?

Naked 2 makes me look dead
I love the colors, but I don't know why none of them look good on me. Or i'm doing something wrong. I've got big green eyes and pale skin and I've tried a mixture of all of them and they don't do anything for me but make me look dead tired lol  Anyone else have this problem???

Need adivce/ideas about storage...
I'm debating what kind of storage  I want to go for. I currently use a writing desk (only has one drawer that is stuffed with random junk right now). On top, I have a couple acrylic drawers, and then some other bins filled with random things. It's... chaos right now. There's not enough room for it to be organized, and it's driving me nuts.   I am waffling between IKEA Alex drawers (the 5) to go underneath, and store things that way, or a ton more acrylics for on top. I'd prefer acrylics on top of the desk for a) access and b) appearance, but I just am thinking it's not going to fit everything I want it to fit.   Does anyone have any personal experiences that might help my decision?

I got a job at SiJCP!
I'm so excited! This past week I've been shadowing out on the black tile with my new co workers. It's so much fun since I love helping people find the right beauty products.   Although, I'm still a bit nervous when giving mini makeovers. I feel a bit scared that I'm doing something wrong or they don't like what I'm doing. But the best way to learn is just to do it, right?   Is there any advice you could give me so that I can be the best beauty consultant ever? I'm super friendly and I always jump in to help. I actively offer samples and give a reasonable amount (usually a 3 day supply). I always offer to sanitize and provide clean applicators and makeup removers. But I just feel like I could do more, especially when there's a freestanding Sephora on the upper level.

Has anyone ordered from HSN before?
They have an Hourglass brush that I would like to buy, and I have the code for $20 off your first purchase... however every single review (and there are many) for HSN say that they've had nothing but problems and truly awful customer service.   Has anyone bought from HSN before? Please share your experiences. Let me know if I'm safe spending $54 on their site.

Rainy Days
So I feel like doing my makeup, but it's raining so I don't think I'll be going out. That's not the point of this status though.   What kind of music do you prefer on a rainy day?   Mine goes from classical music, to the beatles, and of course - David Bowie!

Girl Scouts for beauty junkies?
I was talking to my mom this morning about my 6 yo wanting to join GS.  She asked if I was going to be a leader. I laughed and said that when all the girls returned home from a camping trip with full faces of makeup I probably wouldn't be asked back lol.  Anyways, it got me thinking about all the fun patches that could be associated with a beauty version of GS!  Um, winged eye liner patch, anyone?   It probably wouldn't ever get established, but it's a lot of fun to think about!

Opinions on the best way to cover a tattoo without using make up
I have a moderately large tattoo on my inner right forearm that I need to cover while working for a particular organization. I've never needed to cover it before and since it's over four inches long and on my forearm, it's too large for make up. Plus, I'll be washing my hands a lot, donning gloves, etc. I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions on something I can buy like an elastic type sleeve or something similar to a sweatband but not too thick. I can use bandage-type things if I'm in a bind but I'd like something that might cover in a few colors and can be washed and reused.   Any ideas?

One proud mama
My 12 year daughter Mikayla went to the state fair with her band to play. The kids had about 2 hours to eat lunch, ride the rides, play games, etc. I sent her with $20 for lunch and rides. When I got home from work, she was wearing this ridiculous rainbow squid hat. I burst out laughing. I asked her why she chose and her answer made me laugh and also made me a little proud of her. She said, "it reminds me of PRIDE [LGBTQQIAAP] and unicorns. And PRIDE and unicorns are awesome!"    At 12, she has a pretty deep understanding of social issues, and she knows what's important to her. She's been a proud supporter of gay rights/gay marriage for at least 2 years. My bleeding heart liberal views have rubbed off on her pretty well, I must say. But she is free to make up her own mind about what she believes in.    I hope we can avoid a discussion about social or religious issues here and let me just be a proud mama of a little girl who has a huge heart and stands up for what she believes in. And we can laugh at the fact she spent $12 on a ridiculous rainbow squid hat.

RANT!!!! My SO and I have been fighting all day and I'm going to kill him...this is why
If I go to jail tnight...this is why. So, my SO and I have been snapping back and forth at each other all morning. I'm in the bathroom doing my makeup and not saying a d@mn word to him. I guess my silent treatment pi$$ed him off because he....wait for it....swiped his arm across my vanity and smashed all my makeup to the floor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!1 Everything was fine (that mattered) except my precious. He shattered my Chanel Les 4 Ombres in 232 TISSE VENITIEN. The one that JuST came out...the one in the posters!!! The one I saved my money for...the one that I WORE ONLY TWICE!!!!! I can't even FIND the other three shadows! Only the darkest one is left.  I'm going to kill him right now. I want smack his cocky smirk right off his face. I want to go in the garage and knock his toolbox to the floor and take the welder thing and melt all his tools! My silent treatment ended right then and all hell broke loose. The only reason I was even giving him the treatment was to avoid escalating the fight by responding to his aggressiveness. This might be a deal breaker.**bleep**. Makeup is supposed to make you feel beautiful and this palette actually made me feel beautiful and he just destroyed it. Any of my friends would think it's stupid that I'm crying and so upset over it, but I know that my fellow BTer's will understand. I'm going to go lie down now before I kill him and go to prison.   Uploading a pic in a sec

What type of mirror should I get
  So for the longest time, I've been doing my makeup on the floor since it was more convenient at my parents house, and my last apartment just didn't have enough room for a table. Now that I am in a new apartment, I finally could get a table! What type of mirror should I get? I was thinking of either a wall mirror, or a vanity LED desk mirror.

Just in time for the weekend.....it's time to Heart Party for Zpsid91!!
Well, I was happy to see that Zpsid has 1111 Hearts!! What are the chances of noticing she was at that exact number? Feeling lucky? Maybe it's a good number to play, who knows? (but if you win, you have to share it with Z and me, okay?)   I wish I could come up with a good song from my 'Mental Play List" which now includes "This is the song that doesn't end" but I'm coming up blank at the moment - hopefully something will come to mind. Maybe this will be the invite to a heart party that doesn't end.   Congrats on 1111 hearts, you earned every one of them and it's nice getting to know you. I sent J-Fall & JusTim invites (Fallon & Timberlake) but not sure if I gave them enough notice - I'm sure they'll be here in spirit (and maybe "Dean" and "Sam" will make an appearance too! )   ps - No, Mr Clooney did not get an invite - since I broke it off he's been in a terrible tailspin, didn't think it was fair to jerk his chain.   Edit - meant to write "It's time to Party Hearty for Zpsid91" in my thread title, sounds a little silly the way it is. Guess I'm off my game.......the whole breaking of Clooney's heart thing must be affecting me more then I realized. My bad. (   )  Or is this his most elaborate hoax/practical joke EVER? Spoiler (Highlight to read) Not Funny GEORGE!!!!! ( ) (hmmmmm, is that me making a silly face or am I sticking out my tongue and possibly giving a "Raspberry"??) Not Funny GEORGE!!!!!

Shouldn't all cleansing balms (and skincare products in general) be sealed?
So I ordered the Thermal Cleansing Balm by Omorovicza because I was so excited that they finally have a small size. I remember that I used a sample years ago but I can't remember if I liked it so I thought I'd just get a small one to try out. When I opened the box there is product smeared on the outside and no seal under the cap. It's just sad to even lose a bit because it is such an expensive product, Am I just being petty? I just think all skincare products should come sealed in some way.
