The Lipstick League – week of 4.8.13

Some new glitters and cracked ice powders from It’s So Easy. I can hardly wait to get Neon Orange (front and center) on my nails!

Question of the Week: Imagine there is some calamity and all makeup production ceases. You only have what is left in your stash. What kind of makeup will you run out of first and what kind of makeup will you run out of last?

Answer: Eyeliner will probably run out first, since I have the least of those. And since I have enough lipgloss to last through a second lifetime, that’s what will run out last. But I must say, this calamity is very sad, even in my imagination.

Here’s what’s going on around the League…

    Hahaha… my answer was originally going to be “I have enough makeup for multiple lifetimes.” And then I showed my fiance, who pointed out that I would run out of my MAC foundation first, or it would go bad. If makeup never expired, I’d run out of foundation, setting powder and mascara. I have enough of everything else to last me for life!

    I would run out of Urban Decay’s Primer Potion first since I use it every single time. Next would probably be MAC’s Shroom eyeshadow that I use as a highlighter and then Sin & Toasted from the UD Naked palette.

    If we included all face products I would run out of Argan oil first, and that would be a horrible, I’m addicted to it!

    I have plenty of eye shadow and blush. However, I recently did a major purge. (I was shocked to realize I had a bunch of gloss and other products — that were nearly gone. I had to be realistic that these items had been loyal soldiers but, it was time to say good-bye.) I do not know why but, I have a hard time throwing away something that is a great color or brand that I really like even though its best days are gone.

    Skin care is my favorite category by far! Unlike wine — it does not get better with age. So, I do not have much extra moisturizer, eye cream, serum, sun screen on hand — just what I need.

    The zombies could be gnawing on my bones and I’d still have plenty of cream blush. It’ll go bad before it ever runs out. I’d probably run out of concealer first. Which, if the zombie apocalypse happened (the only valid excuse for makeup not being produced), I’m probably not going to worry about dark circles or blemishes–those will help me blend in with the zombie horde. WOOT! I’m in disguise, y’all! *said in a creepy sing-song voice*
