Mini Haul & FOTD

Hey yall...

WELL...today I was stressed the HELL out. First of all, I thought I had found an apartment...actually I did find one. I got approved, paid my app. fee and gave them the check for the sec. deposit. THEN, the lady I dealt with calls me 4 hours later and says that her boss wants me to pay $600 more...by like...FRIDAY. I don't have that kind of money. I'm a student working part time...and my mom is in the middle of relocating (so clearly I wouldn't ask her). I can't pull that type of money outta my ass. So I ultimately ended up sayin' F* it....cuz they had been giving me the run around since the first day I went to see the apartment....they tried to take advantage of me b/c they knew how young I was, but I'm far from stupid. So to hell with them, and now I'm looking for another apartment...and I have to move in within the next month. I just want to pull my hair out! So....I went to Meijer to relieve some stress (for those who don't know, Meijer is just like Target or Wal-Mart, but I think they're only in the Midwest). Anyways.....so this is what I bought :

No biggie...but just some more stuff I don't need [lol]
*Rimmel lipstick in Balistic
*Palmer's Dark Chocolate & Peppermint Lip Butter
*Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil
*Milani e/s in Shock
*Rimmel e/s in Forest
*Wet N' Wild Mega Plump (color ?...doesn't say)
*Wet N' Wild Wild Shine Nail Polish in Denim Chrome

Most of this stuff I didn't REALLY need. BUT I"m sure I'll find a use for it! I got the Rimmel lipstick to experiment w/ the holiday look seen below. My girl Nessa over at Nessasary Makeup [ http://www.nessasarymakeup.com/ ] recommended the Milani e/s as a MAC dupe so I'll have to play around with that. If you're wondering why I got Rimmel, it was cuz it was all on sale for half off. And I LOVE LOVE the Palmer's Lip Butter...it smells soooo good! I got it to use at night and after I exfoliate my lips...I'll tell you guys how it works out! Oh, and I love the color of the nail polish....initially I was looking for Acoustic Azure by Maybelline (shown by Kia over at Yummy 411) but I couldn't find it anywhere...SO the search was on for a dupe and this is what I came up with! I'll polish them tomorrow so you guys can see the color....

Here's the Holiday look......

i TRIED to imitate Nessa's Holiday look from Nessasary Makeup...I don't really like how it came out....it just doesn't scream HAPPY HOLIDAYS, to me! I think it may be because the lipstick was more of a coral color than I thought it would be.....Do ya'll have any suggestions?????

i feel you girl! moving situations are always stressful. hang in there. you'll find a much better place to stay anyways :)

i bought the Superstay Lipgloss by Maybelline in Radiant Ruby. it's a nice blunt shade of red. perhaps it could work for you. but i have to admit that i keep getting drawn to MAC's Classic Dame in the Mattene collection. i swatch it every time i visit the store but put it back because i can't wear anything that'll come right off my lips (got the kids, hah).

Ohmigoodness, I so remember going through the run around with apartments. It's the absolute WORSE! Many blessings with that! I have Milani Shock but I have a hard time using it because it's a bit frosty on meee....ugh! But you've inspired me to play around with it some more. I love Rimmel products. Simply fab. I love your FOTDs. The lip color is beautiful on you! Keep up the fab work, babes!

hey i think i saw this fotd before, but i thought i commented. it's gorgeous. wow, i have rimmels ballistic and it's one of my fav shades of red for me, but it's def more coral on you. if you want a red red, but it may not be as blue base of a red as you may need for fall.. but rimmel scream is seriously red. i found ballistic by looking for scream. try to use a concealor or your foundation all over your lips, use the color and a deeper red gloss or liner. i wonder how that will work for you....
