I don't often wear it, but after working at Sally, I like to wear it more than I did before.  However, I don't have much, and much of it is definitely older than the make-up companies recommend.  I know, I should throw it out, let go of the old, make room for the new... Someday!

So anyway, here it all is!

Click to embiggen...

On the bottom left are all my brushes, most probably from before I got married, but the pinky-purple ones I bought just a few months ago.  Right next to them, in front, is my new e.l.f. Eyelid Primer, that I love very much, and a tube of Palladio powder finish foundation, which I do not love at all, but it was one of those free perks of working at Sally. 

Above that in the middle kinda, are 2 pencil sharpeners, one that I think I "inherited" from my mom when I moved out (early 90s?), the other came with my new Hard Candy Shadowholic eye crayon (Mirror Mirror) which is VERY SPARKLY.  And speaking of sparkly the lipstick tube right next to the sharpeners is actually an old body glitter in Lime-Silver (but it looks like Gold and Silver on your skin.)

Above those and slightly to the left is Chanel's Poudre Lumière Perfecting (LOOSE!) Powder (Dawn), that I bought for my wedding (1999), and a sample of the Teint Naturel Liquid Makeup to put over it (she gave me a ton, I guess we're lucky there aren't more). 

Above those in the little jar is Clinique's blended face powder in Rose Glaze (also LOOSE!) which I probably got about the same time.  The blush next to it, I also "inherited" from my mom, but it's my favorite blush and as you can see it's not gone yet!  (It's Revlon Naturally Glamorous Blush-On (In The Pink).)

Then we get to the eye shadow!  The pink & beige are from Prescriptives (Hot Pink & Seafoam) and the quad beside them is from Avon (Washed Sun, Silk Rose, Silk Orchid & Washed Pink), both probably from shortly after getting married. Directly in front of those two is some brow powder I bought last fall for my Rose cosplay; I actually use it sometimes too - just not as much as for her!

Beside that you can see two little pans of purple & green, and another quad in black, white, grey, and some pinky-brown color, from working at Sally, and my new Hard Candy Shadowholic eye crayon (Mirror Mirror) which I might have mentioned is just a little SPARKLY!

Then in back there is a gift set that I definitely got before I got married.  It is by Covergirl and has the Soft Grey eye pencil, Roseberry Cheekers blush, and Luminous eye shadow in Rich Violet, Cabernet, and Primrose.  The lipstick & mascara disappeared long ago.

And leaning up against that is a tube of body glitter, also probably a decade old too.  Then to the way right are my lipsticks:

A pearly pink (Coco Chanel Cristalle Pink) that I also bought for my wedding, a dark purple (Burt's Bees Spontaneity) I bought when I first moved to Oswego (2003), a mysterious purple that I have no recollection of buying, a Clinique Lip-Shaping Pencil (mahogany) probably from shortly after getting married, a red sample from Avon (Berry Berry Moist), and their delicious Sweet Spells lip balm, also both probably from shortly after getting married.

And finally in front are my eyeliners!

I have a silvery smoky grey too, but it's in with the set for this photo.  As you can see, I am big on the purple & green.  I've always used black, and I couldn't possibly tell you how long I've had the top 3 in this picture (and the smoky grey).  The Wet'n'Wild ColorIcon ones I bought about a year ago when I was at Sally, which is also when I bought the glitter mascara which you can just see the corner of here.

And if you just read all that, you deserve a cookie!  XD  Next time I share girly stuff like this,  it'll be my nail polishes... ^o^
