What’s your criteria for buying a new eyeshadow? Certain colors? Price?

I didn’t have time to post these earlier (I was already ten minutes late leaving for class so I could get Naked Honey up, LOL), but I had a few minutes between classes to get these up for you :) These are pictures for Colour Ready. As some of you figured out, Colour Ready has several repromotes in it, but I believe the focus is on the expansion of the Prep + Prime line, and less so as a color collection. Kind of like… getting your skin ready to take color? LOL.

Bees do it… now M•A•C does it! Honey that is! As ancient and exotic as Kohl, great beauties have long revered the natural restorative powers of the Golden Elixir.

Following the example of their fabled Queen, Cleopatra, Egyptians bathed in honey and milk. Queen Anne of England used it to silken her hair; from the Ancient Greeks to the Roman Empire, honey has never lost its regal, ever-amber lustre. We love the luxury of its sensual essence…but we also know that it’s a highly efficient and wholesome humectant and healer. Introducing our limited edition Naked Honey collection – three aspects of golden warmth and sun-made sweetness for the body, layered with two decidedly different honeycomb-derived fragrances – celebrating the secret lives of Queen Bees.

A friend of mine passed along this lil’ survey, and I thought it was fun to fill out to pass along the time of my Tuesday morning. I modified a few questions to make it a little more beauty related :)

What was the last new beauty product you purchased? Guerlain Exotic Paradise quad, glosses, and lipsticks.

When you’re feeling down, ________ lipstick/lipgloss makes you feel happier. RED LIPSTICK! Usually, even though I’m not a big wearer of it, red lipstick cheers me up and makes me feel a little sexier. My never-fail-lip color is Mari-sheeno, though!

What look were you wearing this past Saturday? The naked face. GASP!

What beauty product do you wish you could afford right now? Probably a series of microdermabrasion treatments or something to help reduce scarring on my face.

If you had to give up foundation or concealer, which would you give up? Concealer. It was an easy trade-off for me, since I rarely wear concealer ;)

Besides you, the biggest beauty addict you know is ___________. You all! I don’t think there’s anyone in my real life that is into makeup whatsoever. You can imagine how much I need this beauty spot as an outlet, right?

Could you go without any makeup for 30 days? I imagine I could, but I wouldn’t want to. It would be hard, and it might take a bit of a toll on my self-esteem given the terrible state of my skin (dermatologist appointment tomorrow AM for the win!).

Fill It Out!
