give & get

It's a delicate balance, but when achieved: happiness.


orange you glad?

Ok... bad pun. But this sure makes me happy! I've been lusting after LimeCrime's orange shade from their opaque lipstick collection (My Beautiful Rocket), but I'm too cheap to actually order any of their shades - and now I'm kind of over it because after many nights trying to concoct my own shades of ridiculously coloured lipstick, I finally found a solution that doesn't charge shipping costs! Maybelline's new line of eye make-up, Color Tattoo is a long wear (24hr stay, they say) cream eye shadow that is available in several vibrant colours. The texture is perfect as a lipstick (though it is eventually drying - so keep some lipgloss around if you're bothered by that) and it stays like a dream; but most importantly, it is bright and opaque! I'm sorry LimeCrime, I still love you, but for now I'm going to stick with my makeshift lipstick and save my pretty penny to spend on other things I'm sure I don't need.

OH! And aren't my new shades from ASOS to die? I just got them in the mail today and love them more than this chocolate chip cookie(s) I'm eating... well.. almost...

PS: sorry about the horrible quality - you can clearly see I was using photobooth...
