Monday, June 7, 2010 Haulage

It's a baby haul, but worth posting nonetheless...From left to right: Asia Treasure Hunt face mask set (made in Taiwan), Bison body peel (Japanese), and it's hard to see, but the charm bracelet was a GWP, it has a little nail polish and hat charm, among others.

And close up and interior of face mask set:The masks inside are, obviously, all Asian-themed - Japanese Cherry Blossom, Sake Yeast, Natto, and Platinum Hydra (I actually have doubts as to how this one is Asian, maybe someone wiser than I could explain). I'm going to pull a random one out tonight and try it while reading my Kindle (It's impossible to do anything sitting up with these masks on, because they are drenched cloth that basically fall off unless you're lying down).

As for the Bison body peel, I look forward to trying that tomorrow for two reasons. #1, I am totally maladroit and effed up majorly with some self tanner I sprayed on my legs (I am normally against self tanning, but read on to see why I try it). Need to buff that crap off. #2, I have some scarring on my legs from constantly scratching them in my sleep. This has been a problem I've had for like 10 years, and it's caused some discoloration that in the past has only been erased by sunburning them, and then letting the skin peel off. Not that I'm recommending this! I actually found this out by accident when some friends and I went to Malaysia for a beach vacation. I stayed out in the sun too long, was punished with a nasty burn, but rewarded with lovely, clear-skinned legs.

Anyway, I'm awaiting some more exciting packages in the mail, so will hopefully have more to post soon!

MAC To the Beach Haul

So I'm late in the game in general always (to blogging, to work) and especially to posting my latest MAC hauls from the new collections. Ever since To The Beach came out late last week, the interwebs have been inundated with images of the spoils of many a MACaholic's recent purchases. Well, now its my time to join in the fray and show off my new goodies, all of which I managed to get a hold of thanks to my ability to be organized enough to pre-order them (I'm taking a moment to brag about that, since I'm not organized enough to do much else).

As for my thoughts on my purchases themselves, I'll have to save that for later. As with new clothes, I hate breaking the proverbial seal on new makeup and wearing it (it's like it loses its power after you wear it the first time). I can tell from eyeballing the Marine Life powder that that seahorse is going to die a quick death after a few swipes of the brush. As David Bowie as the Goblin King would say, "Such a pity..."
