HAPPY NEW YEAR!
FIRST check out Wendi of awesomeness and follow her wicked ass Makeup Zombie blog because she is dying to hold a massive giveaway and she just needs a few more followers to hit her 1000 target. Do eeeeeet.
Okie dokie smokies, I've been on holidays the last 2 weeks. This means 2 weeks worth of blogger dashboard to sift through.
Those weeks went WAY too damn fast. Good news for the blog though, NEW CAMERA.
No more elphail.
I'd take a pic of the new one but the other cameras are still in the suitcase.
I hopped on the computer before unpacking.
I'm THAT person.
The camera is a Canon EOS Rebel T2i and it's going to take me awhile to figure it out but it seems to take wicked awesome pics... (click to make bigger)

Annabelle quad I have to swatch still
The only thing makeup related that happened recently is I made an epic OCC Lip Tar haul. If you've been reading this blog for awhile you know I hate the word "epic" but it's really the only way to describe my moment of insanity of hauling 23 freakin lip tars. They had a sale so they dropped to $10.40/ea from $13 and the cart kept screwing up so I made like 8 carts all weekend (because of the error) and the very last cart I made a half hour before midnight on New Years Eve let me add a bunch before it screwed up to full price again and then I narrowed it down from there. At 23 I didn't do a good job at the narrowing down part but I am SO excited to see what I can create colourwise with these guys!
NEW YEARS RESOLUTION: Buy less makeup
Those lip tars were bought BEFORE midnight so I'm still on target :D
Uber, Butch, Pageant, Feathered, Tarred, RX, Petty Beige, Traffic, Trick, Interlace, Katricia, Hoochie, Narcissus, Anime, NSFW, Stalker, Harlot, Beta, Banjee, Cha Cha, Femme, Hush and Tone.
And that brings me to...
NEW YEARS RESOLUTION numero dos: Wear lip stuff.
Speaking of which, anyone who does loads of lip swatching, what do you use to wipe the old stuff off to stop your lips from chapping? I can usually only go 3 shades in a row and I might as well have rubbed my face down a brick wall because the end result is fugly. And hurty.
I'm gonna hit up my craft store for empty containers and mix some magic and hopefully 2012 is the year of lip swatches because I have a feeling these things are going to keep me busy. I plan on trying to dupe shades, like the MAC Quite Cute lippies, and since I have the actual lipsticks I can see how far off I really am. SCOREEEEE DUDES! I also wanna try to dupe a certain purple-toned grey lipstick...
