    LOL, I know right.

    Then I won't recommend you trying a Kat Von D palette. I think her products are highly underrated. The ladybird(8 matte shadows), saint and the new monarch palette are incredible. My Kat Von D palettes I use more than any other eyeshadows in my collection.

    I had the same opinion regarding MJ mascara, but if you want to use up the tube, try using a volumizing mascara first and then apply the gel over it. For me, I liked using the MJ over another mascara for the rich black lacquer look.

    But frankly, almost always when I get a sample mascara, I use it. Now I'm curious about the Benefit because their WOW Oxygen Foundation is the best foundation I've ever used in my life, and I love their Sensuous Nudes eyeshadow palette too.
    Awe.. Lancome's Defnicils. An old time favorite of mine. I still like the mascara and formula, I just haven't bought in a long time. When I tried YSL Faux Effects, I was hooked. The only downsize of the YSL for me is that it drys up quicker in the tube. I'm a person who uses lash primer with all my mascaras. I've found that I am truly able to see how the mascara works on my lashes when I use lash primer. I usually want volume, length and something that will hold my natural lash curl. For example, Dior's iconic overcurl with and without primer does nothing for my lashes. I literally don't see any difference. However, when I use Dior's Diorshow and Iconic(regular) with primer, my lashes look full, long and fluttery.

    Also my favorite lash primer without a doubt is Estee Lauder Lash Primer Plus. Most lash primers are more volumizing. I have not tried Make Up Forever's lash primer nor have I tried Blinc or Clinique. Lancome's cils booster I've had good results when I use it for a lengthening mascara.

    Forgive me for I have sinned - 6 new nail polishes were bought today.
    Here is my defense:

    I was visiting my dear friend in Osijek, a town I havent seen since before the start of the war in 1991, I was 4 but I remember clearly several thinks about that visit as it was with very dear people who still are in my life and love me. My friend took me to this lovely store where they had 8 racks of China Glaze and with the price the same as in US. AMAZING.

    got one for mother, 3 for me and they had ORLY on sale 80% off because Orly is leaving Croatia so I had to get 2 more unique shades.

    I also purchaser perfume on 40% sale - Lanvin Rumeur 2 Rose. I consider this birthday present for myself. Nail polishes are problematic...

    You've come to the right place, kosjenka! China Glaze! Is that Lanvin a rose scent? (duh!)

    You are not forgiven, however, for not reporting the nature of the colors.

    Too late. I already own KVD Saint.

    You people are bad influences and the reason the Sephora on Lex in manhattan acquired $65 from me today.

    whenever i get a "free" sample of foundation, i think i have never been more luminous.

    this sample of vitalumiere aqua by chanel is no different. i feel so pretty and witty and gay.

    but something often changes when i buy the whole bottle, which is why i have this slow growing cluster of half used foundations
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    Benefit eyebrow pencil and Clinique chubby eye shadow.

    Not a big fan of the mascara and it's hard as hell to get off.

    Two of my favourite products!

    I don't like that mascara either. I'm a firm Dior or L'Oreal Voluminous user.

    I think you can return the mascara. Yes...hard as hell to remove is about right.

    I was blown away with Laura Geller products my neighbor bought herself while she was in Atlanta. And to see those sets cost less than 50$ is just so unfair. You guys in US have it so well. I dont want to hear any complaints!

    My gel manicure lasted from May 30 to June 25. I was just going to get a regular manicure, but the gel was only $5 more and it dries quickly and you don't have to worry about smudging and it LASTS, you know? I know it's awful for my nails, but it looks so pretty.

    I can't have my nails natural. They break and chip and grow weirdly and I like to wear large obnoxious rings. So. Gel it is.

    I need to get my pedicure before summer starts AGAIN. I hate pedicures because i get very uncomftrable when somebody is messing with my feet. I just have to suck it up for 45 minutes.
