Looking Wistful

In my living room I have a desk that I bought from Craigslist. It’s in my living room with a blanket covering it because there is no room in my garage, and I need to paint it for my office.

Question of the Week

Hello and happy end of the week!

Strangely, I am not really looking forward to this weekend. I mean, I am looking forward to NOT being at work, but tomorrow I have two long appointments. First is a hair appointment, which normally I look forward to, but this time not as much. I am in that in-between stage with growing it out, and it’s driving me insane. I hate it. I hate it short, I hate it long, I hate it in-between. Also, I am bored with the color (already) but have no idea what to do. Then after that 2 1/2 hour appointment, I have to get my taxes done. SNOOZE.

I hope your weekend looks brighter than mine!

MAC Mineralize Perfectly Finished for Spring 2012 Swatches, Photos & Review

MAC Mineralize Perfectly Finished

Here is a sentence I never thought I would say. MAC Mineralize Foundation/Loose covers really nicely and doesn’t look powdery at all.

But wait, let’s back up a minute.

MAC Mineralize Perfectly Finished collection is out this spring and it contains nine shades of Mineralize Foundation/Loose (Extra Light, Light, Light Plus, Medium, Medium Plus, Medium Dark, Medium Deep, Dark, Dark Deep), and fifteen shades of Mineralize Concealer (NW 15, NC15, NC20, NC30, NW20, NW25, NC42, NW30, NC35, NW35, NC45, NW40, NC50, NC50. NW45) .

The Loose Foundation has been around awhile, but the concealers are new.

I’ve never tried this foundation, and I’m not really one to believe that a loose foundation could possibly do anything. I fully, completely expected this to A. look way powdery and settle into fine lines and B. cover nothing and C. add nothing positive to my complexion. But I was wrong! I think I actually said out loud “holy crap” when I started applying it over bare skin.
