hahahahaha I try my foundations out at work and when I go out for a "real" life test. I guess I need to stop.

I'm still stuck on coral. I will always be stuck on coral and peach. Do you guys want to stick with a Spring challenge?
I am cool with that because I still have yet to wear Toxic Tale or Vegas Volt lipsticks. Or the coral blush from Vibe Tribe. Yeah, I vote to stick with Spring lol

Hi everyone! I haven't been on here in ages, but I really wanted some challenges to keep me shopping my stash (instead of putting two dozen things in my cart on the Sephora website and trying to decide which ones I NEED).
Aradhana, I'm dying to know what you think about the PM set. I dawdled too long on the previous sets, because I couldn't choose between gold and silver, and they sold out while I was deciding...

im currently waiting for my next payday and hoping that I can still get the items I want from the Basquiat collection
maybe you NEED them all...at least, this is what generally happens to me. or i remove things because i don't NEED them, and then i go buy them the following week.

i will keep you posted on pm...i haven't opened the package yet -- the sequins are a beautiful packaging idea, but they actually deter me from opening the package because i need to be ready for the explosion of sequins! i all want to make sure that i have time to play with all the items in the pack. i read a review somewhere complaining about all these items being included, when only one or two things are actually being coveted. i get the complaint but i will defer judgement on whether i agree till after i play with the products. i know i liked the lip kit that i purchased.

me too! i just bought a coral bronzer from vasanti. i've never seen a coral bronzer before, and in fact i just thought it was a poorly labeled blush until the sales person pointed me towards another shade for the blush, and instructed me to apply it lower. i may go back for the blush actually, it was like a yellowy Luster.

Yay! I also need to add the orange Mariah Carey blush to the list of must tries. And the light coral KvD ELLL shade. So much coral/peach/orange and so little time!
I wore that blush today with the highlighter from the same collection.... they were so beautiful together despite the fact that you really have to blend that darn highlighter to get rid of the glitter. It'd be fine for a night out but I don't like to be too glittery at work lol. I hope you like the blush. It has a really beautiful glow.

i know it's pretty weird sounding. i'm essentially using it as i use my blushes, which possibly means that i've been placing my blush incorrectly all these years.

i missed the mariah blush...i wish i hadn't skipped/snoozed.

i am planning to skip the summer collection too, but worried i will be sad later if i don't have any products with fruity packaging.

I am trying to make myself want something from this collection for the packaging too! I am so sad that MAC let me down with the purple lipstick.

This is such an absolutely beautiful thread. I do think of makeup as a form of expression especially for women and folx of minority represented genders. and then when that is done for a cause- there are only some things more beautiful than that. Giddens in the chapter Culture and Society looks at freedom to express oneself as a space of belonging into groups and therefore societies. So kudos to your work OP
