I feel pretty. Oh, so pretty. I feel pretty and witty and broke.

Because I just shelled out way too much money for make-up. Something I usually buy at Walgreen's at a fraction of the price. What made today different?

I never really invest in make-up, but part of me thinks that at 25 I should start. So I was perusing the cosmetics area at Nordstrom this afternoon, wondering if I could get a mini-makeover to make my day a bit brighter. I also knew that I would inevitably walk away with a few products in hand, but if they looked good on me, what's the harm?

Oh everything looked good on me. And all the brushes were necessary for applying the goodies. So I couldn't just buy one without the other, right? (Again, my former investments in make-up had not required me to own make-up brushes.) I saw the tools as the proper investment; if I bought them today, I wouldn't need to buy them again.

When my stash of beauty supplies was put into dollar form, my heart skipped a beat or two. There was NO WAY I could have possibly spent THAT MUCH MONEY on some make-up. Seriously?

So then I went and bought two pairs of shoes.

What kind of makeup did you get?

I drool whenever I even think of Sephora. Yummy yummy.

Tell me it was all MAC stuff, right? :)

I've heard MAC stuff isn't the best for your skin -as in the base/coverup makeup, that it's more of a "costume" makeup? I don't know though. But MAC brushes, and eye shadows and lip stuff and everything else is every girl's dream daily makeup routine. At least it's mine.

Smashbox.

I am really liking it.

I should be after how much I paid...

A friend of mine used to work for MAC--and of course, she raved about it--but that's interesting Meta on what you've heard about it. I haven't actually worn their face make up--so who am I to talk! I am ALL OVER their lipglass (?) in Beax/Beau..can't freaking spell it!

Yeah my friend is a makeup artist -she has a MAC kit, but she says the face makeup really isn't for everyday use.

Smashbox makeup looks awesome! Glad you're really liking it.

Love that you bought shoes after! And the brushes really do make a difference. You won't be sorry.
