Swatch Crazy with About Face Cosmetics

Hi Y'all. I hope everybody had a good weekend got some sun and stayed away from the piggy swine flu....... @(
I heard about About Face Cosmetics from my Beauty Blogger luva Melissa aka Fabulously Thrifty. They have so many colors to pick from. I didn't know what to do with my self. It was overwhelming but in a good way. My greedy behind wanted them all... The nice thing about About Face Cosmetics is that you can order SAMPLES!!! So I ordered a bunch, like 24 I think! Each sample is only $.50 cents!!! So here's what I got!!! I think it's really nice that they allow you to get samples because they have like 100's of colors to choose from and some are matte, shimmery, velvet, twinkles & pearls, and powdered diamond dusts. Of course after I figure out what colors I really want, I'll be back for full sized orders......

According to there website each sample bag is enough for 5 applications.... But y'all know that Kendall doesn't like baggies, >_< href="http://www.tkbtrading.com/">TKB Trading. I mean don't get me wrong I love samples I just find baggies hard to work with and I'm OCD and anal.....

Ahhh... So much better......

All pics were taken with a flash and no base or primers were used. All swatches were applied dry with a Qtip b/c I didn't feel like cleaning my brushes 25 times aka lazy.

Ok, back to finals >_<.... I'm free as off this Friday and will be burning all my books!!! Joking, I'll sell them back and make a whole $5 from a textbook that cost $199.....

XoXo

P.S. In the name of shameless self promotion y'all should go over to WHITNEY'S BLOG and vote for me Number LUCKY 13 Tropical Spice (she said it's ok to advertise), and you should read her blog anyways because I like her! Um if I win I promise to get better cafeteria food and a longer lunch periods and no classes on Fridays!!

Kendall!!!! You went swatch crazy! lol!!! very cool how you got them all in separate jars!

Go check out HALF.com to sell your books! You'll make SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much more then reselling them back to the schools bookstore!

The only thing about half.com is that once you sell a book, you have to fork out your own shipping $ first and ship it off, then half.com will deposit the $ in your bank when their 2 week cycle comes around.

U dont even need to take pics. Just describe the boooks condition as accurate as possible.

(USPS Media Mail is for books and is very cheap to mail out although it usually is very slow service)
Good luck!
