...aka Make-Up Haul v. Groceries...and...
Groceries LOSE BY A LONG-SHOT!!!
TO EAT OR NOT TO EAT: THAT WAS THE QUESTION.
...now I am hella hungry, but look what I got...
NINETEEN (yes, 19!) different OCC Lip Tars
ALL VEGAN...ALL CRUELTY-FREE...ALL THE TIME
Can't believe I waited 2 days to post this! Since this was my first major OCC haul, of course I filled my virtual-cart with 1 of each color; however, with 36 colors available online that would require sacrificing more than groceries (utilities/insurance/etc). So, I decided to "think like a make-up artist" (and a somewhat-"responsible" person, for once) and stock-up on the line's "basics" for mixing my own colors (*ahem*, need to break-out the color-theory textbook/color wheel) and a handful of the "wear-alone" colors. This meant I had to skip the current season's Pretty Boy Collection
I know, I know, I KNOW! It was tough, especially with that awesome periwinkle blue Butch, but this prudent decision cut the number of items in my virtual-cart in half and in retrospect I have no regrets. Sorry folks, since there's nothing new to see here, color-wise it was a "boring" haul...regardless, I'm posting because it was a sizable haul, which included almost all of the colors from the line's premier in 2009 (Safety Orange had since been DC'd, so I purchased Beta as a substitute, which is a much brighter - almost fluorescent - orange than Safety Orange, but it'll have to do for now) AND almost all of the Fall 2010 more "wearable" colors (minus Strutter, which was also DC'd). I literally submitted my order like a minute before the Halloween Sale ended 18 October 2011 @ 11:59 PM EST (8:59 PM PST) and barely made it! But fret not, another sale/special will come and I shall haul-again...
...enough talk - here are the pics - sorry, they SUCK. I have a pretty #&$%-in' good digital camera, so I have come to the conclusion that I am a neo-luddite that totally sucks-a** at taking stills...
