Life is Better Family Sized

My posting schedule has been mostly non-existent and erratic and sparse.  Work has truly been kicking my sorry snow-butt and I am exhausted.  With daylight savings, I had high hopes for sunlight later in the day with maybe a scant chance to take pictures?


I'm deprived of sunlight, free time, time with family.  Life sucks.

So instead of cuddling up with my neglected family, I am cuddling up with my Family Sized bag of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.  I don't know.  It's a meager substitute for family, but peanut butter and chocolate is pretty nice.  Before the sugar crash, headache and crankiness. 
I can't turn this. >:( CRANKY

I actually have been very makeup occupied.  Let me show you what I've been obsessing over.  After weeks and weeks of trying to decide what I wanted to get from Suqqu's SS14 releases, I finally decided!  And so much thank you and drooling over Nicole from Swatcharama who helped me!  I waited for a long time for the all the product releases to show up on the Selfridges website, but it just kind of didn't.  And while I shop from Ichibankao from time to time, when ordering several pieces, the math just isn't in my favor.


I picked of two of the eye shadow quads, Mitsucha (15) - bottom left and Yomogiiro (17) - bottom right.  And picked up the new Bright Up lipstick in Akaanzu (07).  So far, I've only played with the lipstick and Yomogiiro, but OOOOH.

I plan on doing actual posts on all of these things, of course, but I did want to share some pictures of my experimentation with Yomogiiro.

Look 1 with a more precise placement than my norm.  Green on the lower lash line.  The base shade all over the top lid, lavender on top and a mix of brown & green smoked into the upper lash line.  Akaanzu Bright Up on the lips. blush side of Suqqu Face Palette EX-03 on cheeks.
Look2, which is more of the muddled smokey placement I tend to do with the shades layered.  Same products as the above look.
Look 3, which is a variation on the 1st look, but building out the green only on the inner and outer corners and brown on the center lash line otherwise.  Suqqu Creamy Glow in 08 Keshiaka (d/c).  Can't recall the blush because yesterday remains a mystery to my short-term memory.
I like em!  Sorry these are kind of mediocre phone pictures, but I hope you can see the muddy, smokey delight that is Yomogiiro.  Let me work on some better photos in the meanwhile of the product and swatches and all that good stuff.

I am just so darn relieved I can see the end of the work week.  Just so very relieved.  I've been reduced into a puddle of tired sticky goo.

How has your week been, everyone?  What's happening for you this weekend?  Any new products you've been playing with that is delightful?
