In my On my mind entries, I'll share tidbits of life and the beauty obsessions that keep me up at night!
What really kept me up this week was last minute list editing for the Sephora Friends and Family sale. Even with all the planning, I ended up slashing and adding things at the last minute. I focused on the basics instead of color. My haul included two foundations: Make Up For Ever HD in Flesh (118) and NARS Sheer Glow in Deauville. Lately I've become obsessed with foundations. I'm largely pleased with my NARS Sheer Glow in Ceylan which has a yellow undertone, however I want to explore different undertones to see if I can find a better match. MUFE HD supposedly has beige undertones, while NARS Deauville has pink and yellow. Sometime this season, I plan on purchasing Chanel Perfection Lumiere when opportunity strikes. I'm still not completely sure whether I want it in B10 or B20.
Lately, I've been quite enamored with MAC Scene eyeshadow. My love for blue-grey is probably akin to most bloggers' love for taupes. Scene is the perfect shade of matte blue-grey with a smooth texture. It makes for a gentle smoky eye or a nice shadow at the lashline. I've used MAC scene so much I'm getting tired of it, but I still find myself reaching for it almost every day. It was MAC Scene that made me a MAC eyeshadow convert.
Speaking of MAC, today I couldn't stop thinking about the Miss Piggy for MAC mini collection that will come out soon. The promo photo of Miss Piggy with the dark auburn short shaggy haircut is just perfect! The MAC Miss Piggy Pink is a bright blue-pink eyeshadow. Despite my penchant for conservative colors, I've successfully convinced myself that a Miss Piggy Pink eyeshadow is something that I will use and ...er... need in my collection.

Finally, I'd like to give a shout out to my brother. Though he probably could care less about cosmetics and the content of this blog, he gifted me with a lightbox to use for my pictures! I was quite surprised and touched by his thoughtfulness. This is a serious upgrade to my current equipment which consists of a point-and-shoot camera and a sheet of computer paper. I haven't had the chance to tinker with it too much, but I'm excited to do so soon. Thanks bro =).
That wraps up what's on my mind this week. I'm staying up way too late to write this, but I had a Starbucks instant coffee packet earlier today. No cream, no sugar. That stuff is strong! I'd love to hear what's on your mind, no matter how random it may be. Do you have a must-have MAC shadow? Anyone else excited about Miss Piggy Pink, or have a favorite pair of shoes?
