See, I told you I’d still be blogging and posting, didn’t I? ;) I would have been replying to comments earlier this morning, but the laptop was in the safe, and I didn’t want to wake my parents (who were STILL sleeping). Okay, I guess I rise early. Anyway, here’s a look I did this morning while waiting for them to realize it was day time!

Went to MAC PRO at The Forum Shops last night, and I was disappointed to learn that they’ve discontinued empty PRO pigment jars?! Must call other PRO shops to confirm/deny (please, please deny!). Plus, the new launches for this coming Thursday weren’t out (sometimes PRO stores have them out early), so that was disappointing. I picked up Rosy Coral PRO gloss on a whim, so I didn’t haul ass for nothin’.

Apparently, there’s a Barney’s at The Palazzo, so I’ll probably check that out today or tomorrow.
Also, I think I’m going to see Sigfried & Roy’s Secret Garden (I think that’s the name…) today/tomorrow, too. I know we’re hittin’ up the Rio buffet today, though. (My whole reason to go to Vegas was for the buffets… I’m such a sucker for a good buffet!) My mom forgot her hairspray — do I see a trip to Sephora (right next door, at Planet Hollywood) in the future?! Hmm…

I used Museum Bronze pigment (LE) on lid, Ricepaper eyeshadow on inner lid, Goldmine eyeshadow on middle of lid, Carbon (LIGHTLY!) on outer lid, Espresso eyeshadow on outer crease, Copperbeam pigment (LE) on outer crease, Ricepaper eyeshadow on brow to highlight, Graphblack technakohl on upper lash line (then smudged), UD Stash 24/7 liner on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Margin blush with Other Worldly blush (LE) on cheeks. I wore Tiger Tiger lipstick (LE) and Rosy Coral (PRO) pro gloss on my lips.

** These are recommendations for dupes based on permanent colors available — may not necessarily be identical; they are the closest I can think of!

Museum Bronze = Patina; Copperbeam = Antiqued + Cranberry; Other Worldly = Raizin; Tiger Tiger = Cherish
