Eyes on the Prize

I have had one of the worse weeks of my life makeup-wise. I woke up Monday unable to put my contacts in because of some infection/virus thing. All week I have been bumbling around, half blind in my glasses (they are the wrong Rx and they don't fit quite right... not a good combo!) unable to wear any eye makeup! I am slowing dieing inside. To top it off, my face is breaking out a bit. Ugh. I feel like such a mess. So right now I am dreaming of the makeup can't use.

The Urban Decay Urban Ammo Eye Palette has their top 10 shadows. I want! I want! So pretty! Their eyeshadows are full of pigment and fun and sparkely. And really, I can always justify a new eyeshadow palette.

I really want to try out a new Mascara, like Dior's Diorshow Blackout Mascara and probably after the infection, I should! (Ew, right?!) Anyone have suggestions for new mascara's to try? I want volume, volume, volume, and a bit of length. Oh, and SUPER black.

With my new obsession for pot eyeliners, I should just go ahead and get Smashbox's Cream Eye Liner Palette and go nuts with new colors, that is, when my eyes heal.

I think I want to try a eyeshadow primer. Anyone know of a good one? I don't want anything with color, just something to create a smooth, silky base for eyeshadows adhere to. Bare Escentuals bareVitamins Prime Time Eyelid Primer looks like it might work well. But I'm open to suggestions.

So until my doctor clears me, I'll just dream of all the products I can't use. Have a good weekend everyone, and think of poor old me when you apply that eyeliner. Boo Hoo. ;(

Color Lovely!

The best eye primer, UDPP: Urban Decay Primer Potion!!!

Smashbox's Cream Eyeliner Palette is the best!! Ive now switched to M.A.C Liquidlast Liners, but i always turn to my M.A.C, Bobbi Brown, and Smashbox's Cream Liners... <3<3<3

a friend told me the base "agnes B chez les Créateurs de beauté" is just great.... don't know if you can find it?

I<3MAC~ Thanks for the well wishes. I'll be back in eye makeup in no time, I have hope!

Going to try UDPP for sure, thanks for the tip!

Poppy~ I've heard of agnes B clothes but never makeup... maybe I'll do some research.

As far as primers - I LOVE Lancome's Ombre Perfecteur. I have it in nude and think it's great for (1) when I am getting super dolled up and want my makeup to last, or (2) if I am going for a lite eye makeup look, it evens out the varying pigments of my eyelid and holds a lite dusting of shadow beautifully :)

Mascara recommendations: hands down Brenda Christian's dual mascara
It's great for contact wearers, hypo-allergenic, all natural, doesn't flake or smudge, comes off easily with makeup remover, and actually adjusts to individual skin and lash tones! My warning: be careful ordering from discount web pages. I have had some problems with them and I think it is better to go directly to the source.

Beth~ My lovely friend, taking time out from finals to give me fabulous suggestions. I've been meaning to ask you for the name of that mascara, Thanks!

Can't wait till you're all done!
