That’s something I might never do at a high-end makeup counter, however sometimes it’s fun to take perhaps $25 of fun money to buy drugstore colors I’d never even believe to purchase from a department store line — you know, just to play. It’s like what I utilized to do when I very first started using makeup (at house only, I promise mom!) as a young teenager.
That’s type of like what I did with these Almay products a couple weekends back — have pointless fun as well as experiment — as well as I discovered some things that definitely deserve more interest than they get in the blogosphere!

Myy seven-year-old believes the stylish I-Color celebration Brights shadows have her name written around them (not!), however she can’t have them. These won’t be leaving my makeup collection anytime soon.
