Fafi Invite & New Makeup Arsenal

.

I got my Fafi invite to the pre-launch party this Sunday! The booklet looks so pretty, and they are stickers!

**EDIT*** I had some lovely ladies ask me about the Fafi iridescent powders, or just iridescent powders in general, they can be used in various ways, to highlight the cheeks or face, give a bronzey look, pretty much anything!









Sadly I had to get another traincase to store my massive collection of crap, *ahem* I mean makeup. I was out-growing the clear plastic drawers, my vanity drawers, my old traincase....things were just spewing out so I needed a new arsenal to organize some of my things, what's sad is that I also bought the midnight traincase (both from Sephora). I bought it online so I have not received that one yet. I got it for traveling (yes even the overnight bag was TOO SMALL for my things, even just for traveling!). And each case was close to $100 EACH, aye aye aye, gotta control my spending habits but seriously, it's a BAD addiction! LOL. It's like for that price I could have bought the MAC traincase!

Did you know that the MAC traincase has thermal protection? Meaning if you leave your makeup in your car on a hot summer California day in that case, it's protected? Yup. :)

I haven't even stored everything yet!





All the traincases.....


Now it's time to organize! See how much stuff I have just laying around!?













Of course gotta organize some of the NYX eyeshadows...



New Bracelets and Rings from Forever 21 (I love bracelets and rings!):

darn you Nessa, this makes me want to get a traincase to organize my makeup :) Nice purchase though, that should definitely help make things easier to find....love all the colorful accessories you have! The Forever 21 near me has a slim accessory area - it's always picked over and sad :(

(g)ezebel said...

milf... LOL! i've been called that before, but only found out what it meant a few weeks ago. my 15 yr old's neighborhood buddies once were hiding in the bushes in our front yard, and my husband spotted them. "what the hell are you guys doing in the bushes in my yard?" he yelled from our bedroom window. they yelled back laughing, "we thought "someone" was changing in front of the window!" (they thought my H's shadow was ME!!) GAH! boys..!!!

You know...

you ever thought of not buying things for awhile until after you use some of all of that makeup you have?

Or, ever thought of not buying something you're not going to use more than once or twice?

...just a thought.

Vanessa said...

Ellie- You are suppose to schedule an appointment with them for the party and they should have let you known what time it is, it's this sunday February 10th.

Julie- Of course I have, but as a beauty blogger, it's pretty much "standard" to try different products, not just for myself, but for readers like you. I could very well just stick to what I have, but this blog would be quite boring. Also, when it comes to pigments, I sell samples of ALL of them, so it's not going to "waste". When it comes to products I haven't used, I either sell them or give them to my teenage sister. For some products, they are given to me for free by companies to test and review. I pretty much use everything I have more than once, not every FOTD is going to have the same products used. :)

Elizabeth said...

my god look at all that makeup!! You have enough to open up your own cosmetic store!!! *jealous*

Sheila said...

I'm loving your bangles! That is so cute, like Rainbow Brite! haha... Great new train case. Its a good size huh! I have the same exact one it in PINK (of course)!!! =)

Ginny said...

hey love! love the sephora traincase. I have one just like my, me BF bought it for me 2 xmas's ago. HOpe you enjoy it!!!

Julie said...

Wow, I'm so envious of your make-up collection!!

The Fafi invite looks so cool! And they're stickers too!!

The bracelets are very colourful. Looks fun :D

said...

welcome back! how was vegas hun? OMG, i am so behind on all these blogs :(

so anywhoo, you got a MAC case? hooray for you. the best thing about it is that it really does keep your makeup protected. i accidentally left my traincase in my car for hours & hours, came back freaking out thinking that all my lipsticks would be melted & when i checked, HOLY COW; they were completely in tack :) i love mac :)

& reading your reply to that question, i don't think that you were rude at all. i think it depends on how the person reads your answer that you may come off rude but IMO, you weren't :) you are such a sweetheart.
