Snowbound in the Big Apple

This is a BE kit that I absolutely LOVE! I never realized how wearable they were together until I attempted this, and now I am in love with it. Celestine was just kinda ho-hum to me ... but with this ... LOVE it!

For future reference, anything not listed with a brand is a Bare Escentuals product.

And come on, we all know about my devotion to MAC lipsticks. Enjoy!

Questions? Comments? PLEASE post!


  1. I LOVE this's given me some ideas, too, on how to maybe incorporate other colors into this look!
    Love the new page!

  2. Glad you like it. Celestine really surprised me with this one ... I totally didn't think it would show up as a crease colour. Proved me wrong!

  3. Love it!! And holy cow your collection!! Are you use magnetic paint to hold them up?

  4. I am so glad you like it! No, not magnetic paint. I have several magnetic dry erase boards mounted on the wall (gotta love Hercules Hooks!) and then I just hot glue magnets to the back of all the colours and stick them on.

    I have them organized by kit if they came in a kit, and then by colour family if I bought the colour individually. I don't separate the liners like other people do because more often then not I use them as crease or lid colours instead of liners.

    I love my wall ... it is the only way I could keep all of those out where I can see them. Glad it intrigued you!

  5. I love the use of colors here, I have all of them - hehe - and I love your wall and lip collection - AMAZING me here!! You rock!!


Please be nice (that doesn't mean you have to like the look ... just be nice about not liking it!) ... no one likes a troll ;)
