GET Into the Groove!!!

Okay, so MAC's new In The Groove collection is full of beautiful, happy shiny things! These are the things in particular that I want:

Go For It cremesheen lipstick: It's a mid-tone blue purple shade of amazing. I'm hoping that if I concealer the heck out of my lips, it will really be this color!
You've Got It - A silvery-grey cremesheen gloss. I picture myself with too much lipliner, a thick black kohl eye liner, and this lipgloss.
Togetherness mineralize eyeshadow trio: It has a light purple, a medium purple, and a grey and it's ten kinds of beautiful!
Hang Loose mineralize blush duo: So what I love about this blush (I think it's my favorite thing in the collection) is that it's a bright pink AND a lavender.

The minute this collection comes out in store, I am going to be all over it. LOVE!

So last night I decided to cook a nice meal for me and the boyfriend. I'm not hugely familiar with cooking pork chops, but I went ahead and cooked them in a pan with a few seasonings and some barbecue sauce. Lots of onion flakes! I also made some awesome mac & cheese (yes, from a box...Kraft's new ones rule) and also some peppered white gravy and biscuits that had only *technically* expired. We're not normally gross, but I'm sorry--biscuits have to have a longer life-span than that says. LOL!

So yes. Biscuits and gravy, pork chops and gravy, and X-TREME macaroni and cheese! Ha ha...

I think Nick loved it. He practically inhaled everything, and then went back for more biscuits and gravy. I was still a little full from lunch, so I had to throw a few things away...I hate to waste :(

So this brings me to this morning. What am I cooking for lunch today? En-Cor dinner of chicken parmigiana. No noodles, though. Unfortunately. I just remembered that I PROBABLY should have cooked some. *slaps forehead* Oh, well. I'll put it on toast if I have to. I'm sure Nick will be okay. Speaking of Nick, he should really be home by least one way or another he'll have food!

Our motherboard should be shipping back any day now. This means that I get access to my awesome webcam and I can post my thoughts on the newest things I've bought. Those would be MAC's Lazy Day & Sweet & Punchy from the To the Beach collection. I'll go ahead and say that I love both and I already wore them out. I even whited Sweet & Punchy out some so that I could convince everyone at work that it was Keylime Pie from Clinique. Ha ha! Sometimes I just have to do that...

Anyway, once the big computer is up and running, I plan on going through my makeup bag. Maybe a new look every day? Maybe! I'm being a complete ditz because I know I won't be that awesome with this blog. And hey, no one reads it anyway...

The Stalling is having a giveaway on her blog here. Feel free to check it out! She's giving away some pretty things and I really enjoy reading her reviews, so you might as well. :)

MissKC027's(Kim) contest entry

Oh, gosh. It's hard to say what the least important makeup product is. I use so many different products day in and day out. I can say that the least important makeup product for ME is bronzer. Because I'm so pale, bronzer is practically a no-no for me.

I haven't been blogging like I should lately, and that's just a shame! It's a good outlet for me to rave about shit I like, and bitch about shit I don't like! Ha ha! Anyway, this little beauty quiz got me thinking that I really should start trying new things with Clinique. Yesterday I got called "conservative" and it nearly broke my heart! Once our motherboard comes back for our desktop, I will think about doing tutorials and/or posting FOTDs to see if I can bring my makeup lust back from the dead...

My Recent Beauty Adventures:

Last mascara you bought:
L'oreal's Voluminous Waterproof mascara. I'm a big lover of this mascara, so when I was going to be in Louisiana for a week, I decided that I'd have to try the waterproof version as well. It gives me that same, lovely look that the regular Voluminous does, and I can attest that after swimming and hot-tubbing, it really is waterproof! However, do not forget to take it off at night (I'm super famous for doing that) because it will be crumbly and terrible in the morning!!!

Last lipstick you wore:
MAC's new "Lazy Day" from the To the Beach collection. It is the perfect pale pink that I've been searching for. However, if you're a sick little monster like me and you put foundation/concealer on your lips to show the true'll look a little ill. I liked it, but I'm pretty sure it creeped the boyfriend out, haha!

Last look you wore that you LOVED:
When I was home, I wore MAC's "Danger Zone" mineralized eye shadow (the red with the black as liner) and Lancome's "Electric Pink" gloss. I looked like a gothic hooker, but in a good way (if that's at all possible).

Last eyeshadow you fell in love with:
MAC's "Sweet & Punchy". Metallic Chartreuse eye shadow? Yes, please!

Last blush you wore:
Clinique's "Peony" Fresh Bloom All-Over Colour with a touch of Clinique's "In-a-Rush Blush" Quick Blush on top. I enjoy mixing blushes and the Fresh Blooms look great when you want to turn any blush into a 3-Dimensional masterpiece.

Last time you washed your brushes:
The brush cleaner will be out until like, July, so I try to do a warm water rinse and get out any chunkies when the brushes start to look icky.

Last nailpolish you removed:
I love that Sin nail polish, and I believe the color is called Timbleberry. Thimbleberry? I'm not really sure. It's a bright, hibiscus-esque coral-y color. Super cute on short nails, and REALLY cute on toenails!
