Splurges! Too Faced and a tattoo!


Zombies!

I don't know why I can't seem to get motivated to post regularly. Life, maybe? Whatever it is, I need to stop doing it. Tonight, I decided to pull out the big guns and do a blog post way past my bedtime. This might just become a *thing*...maybe. lol

A few weeks ago, I had some extra money (tax return!) and was able to do with it what I wanted. This only happens very rarely in my world, so I decided to do something I've always wanted to do....get a tattoo! But before that, I ran to Sephora and picked up the Too Faced "The Return of Sexy" palette. I've been eyeballing it for some time, because of the names of the eyeshadow within the palette and because it came with a full sized eyeliner. So, of course, I had to swatch it for you! I'm pretty excited about some of the colors. Others, I could take or leave..and the tattoo? Well, I'll happily take it forever.

So, let's have a look. Please click images for maximum awesome. 

This set contained:

- 15 x 0.035 Eye Shadows
- 0.04 oz Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner in Perfect Black
- 0.17 oz Deluxe Shadow Insurance Eye Shadow Primer

From L to R- top to bottom: Naive, Pink Diamond, 7 Year Itch, Ingenue, Innocent, New in Town, Icon, Divorcee, Hopeless Romantic, Bombshell, Hollywood, Maneater, Casting Couch, Primadonna, and Beautymark.



Nifty little eyeshadow chart that I will probably never reference, but it's neat for beginners! (The card IS two sided as well.)


Swatches:




I adore Hopeless Romatic, Primadonna, Maneater, and Beautymark. Pink Diamond is a fantastic highlight for under your brown bone. Perfect Black eyeliner is the PERFECT black and lasts forever. I feel this palette was well worth the price because it came with the eyeliner and I'm pretty impressed with MOST over the shades in the palette. Everything is really pigmented and sparkly, with the exception of Naive and Pink Diamond. Plus, the names are just hilarious!

And....drumroll please! Here is the new addiction to my forearm. He's bigger than I'd planned, but I love him so so much! The pain was an interesting pain..not horrible, not pleasant..interesting. And I'd do it again in a heartbeat!



I hope you've enjoyed my late night postling! It's been fun..almost therapeutic! Until next time!

*all products and tattoos were purchased by me, with my very own mad money!

  7. I want this so bad. I did the same thing with my taxes. I bought smash ox smoke box 2, glinda palette and the natural eye palette. They were out of the return of sexy. Boo.
