Sugarpill Heart Breaker Palette look #2

This time I used Acidberry, 2am, Velocity and also Buttercupcake.

My foundation was the only base I used under it today.

Nail Love

I have a bad habit of doing my nails before I fall asleep...

CVS near me had some nail polishes on sale for 75% off while I was there not too long ago. They had Sally Hansen and even some Essie ones and was able to buy a bunch for about $2 a pop.

This color is Sally Hansen Smooth and Perfect in Dune.

I like the color, but I hated the brush...made it hard to get the sides of my nails without making a mess because its a little bigger and shaped differently than I'm used to.

Sugarpill Heart Breaker Look #1

Used the whole Heart Breaker palette with some help from Buttercupcake and Bulletproof

Edit: These shadows really don't read shimmery...Whenever I post directly from my phone, the pictures come out a little wonky and they just float lol =/

Latest Sugarpill Purchase

Sooooo....when I found out that Sugarpill Cosmetics would be releasing the new Heartbreaker Palette, I pretty much decided I was going to get it whether I knew for sure what colors were in it and then, after some poking around on the internet, I pretty much counted the days until I ordered it when I woke up on May 18th.

 I already own all of Sugarpill's other pressed shadows and they are without a doubt some of my favorite shadows in terms of quality (Bulletproof is my all time favorite matte black shadow that I've come across in case anyone is wondering. I almost died when I thought I lost it). My biggest concern was actually how/if I would use these colors xD but that obviously couldn't stop me. I'll just have to find a way lol.

Anyhow, here's what was in my box~

Small Makeup Show Haul

The Makeup Show, while having a lot of educational events going on, is a makeup junkie's paradise when it comes to the showroom and all the brands available at steep discounts.

Had this been a year ago, I'm sure I would have went CRAZY in there. But alas, I already have too much crap that I need to run through and don't have enough space for so I stuck to basics things I needed (though the Kissable Couture glosses were just for fun lol) and a few things (not pictured) for a Mother's Day gift for my lovely mom who encourages me to do all the things I want to do and helps me achieve that as much as possible <33.

I had a great first experience at The Makeup Show NYC. I went alone, saw some people I knew, managed to meet a few new people, surfed the crowd, sat front and center during seminars, and overall managed to make it through the weekend in one piece.

It was a really uplifting event and it made me want to do more work to get to where I want to be. I'm also proud of myself for opening up and managing to speak to some new people. Next year I hope to do even better on that end and will be working on it continuously.

Overall, it was a packed event, but I had a great time.

And now, 3 days later....I'm still sleepy. So....bed.

In-Between Post~

I'm up and getting ready to the city for Day 2 of the Makeup Show (travel from staten island is sometimes annoying), but I just wanted to check in and say that Day 1 was.......Nothing short of awesome!

I have soooooooooooooooooo much to talk about....not so many pictures (I'm not sure why I bother carrying a camera sometimes), but I do have some cool shots and things to share. So after today I'll do a post on The Experience NYC and then the Makeup Show.

Much more exciting than having to see a picture of my face and only that....But, just so I don't break with tradition, here's one anyway from last week. It's my inside face, because I only wear neutrals outdoors because of my job:
Sugarpill Tako on the lid (matte white), Poison Plum (purple) and Bulletproof (matte black) for everything else.

Before I go, does anybody else find it really awkward to just take pictures of people? I always wonder what people think of getting their picture taking when they're presenting or something. They're probably used to it, but in my head I'm like "I hope they don't think I'm weird or rude...." so I tend not to xD. Sucks a little.
