okay, so I may have gone overboard with the title!! LOL... ya, it's late & I'm tired.. just wanna get this delayed post goin already... so I apologize if that was a little too cheesy for you...

a few weeks ago, while I was cleaning up / organizing some of my makeup, I found something that I purchased back in September - my MAC Angel lipstick...

shoot!! I forgot all about it! for almost three months??!? you can probably imagine my excitement to use it right away... so I did this look, mmm it's actually not a look, but just a quick makeup that I wore to my friend's 30th birthday celebration, where I used items that I can find within reach... LOL

since this was taken a couple of weeks ago (December 5th to be exact), I will list the products as much as I can remember...


Make Up For Ever HD foundation - #123
Bobbi Brown corrector - Light Bisque (under eye)
MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Natural - Medium
Benefit Hoola (bronzer)
blush - ?? MAC Peachykeen maybe?!?

Wet n Wild color icon e/s palette - Pride (used only the matte blue & green)
no highlight!! again... I was in a hurry...
