Funky Fafi makeup and more!

Hi Bellas,

Yay it’s Friday! I also get Monday off for President’s Day woo hoo! I’m so glad the week is nearly over. I’ve been having a stressful week at work…dealing with a lot of corporate red tape, having to go down to Human Resources, ughhh it’s a mess. Things are going to be different in 2008 though…always remember to fight for what you believe in ladies. One day I will carry out my dream…drop the chains of corporate slavery and amass my own cosmetic empire…and I’ll bring you all with me! He he.

Anywho, how was your Valentines Day? I got to work and like Nessa, was greeted with a surprise. Apparently when my boyfriend got up early “to get an early start at work”, he actually went to my office before me to deliver some goodies. As I walked down the hall towards my desk I saw this massive heart shaped balloon in the distance, and I mean it was big…I could’ve sworn I saw a bunch of older woman standing in my cube…I was like “why are they all up in my cube?” Then I saw the huge balloon and a bouquet of long stemmed red roses. I’ve always wanted flowers delivered to me like that  Too bad I hate my job so I was kinda depressed from all the drama that it diminished some of the fun. Funnily enough, the balloon has a multimedia capability…if you tap it, it plays music. Wow, that music was loud! It played “still the one…we’re still having fun and you’re still the one…”. At least 8 times yesterday ppl came by and randomly hit my balloon and it blasted the 15 second song….I was kind of embarrassed because I sit by a lot of the vice presidents and that junk is loud, lol. It’s funny how the day of love brings out the kid in all these corporate bigwigs.

The BF and I went out to dinner yesterday and then saw “27 dresses”…finally! That movie made me cryyyyyyyyyy. I’ll admit though, that’s not a difficult feat on its own. Even my boyfriend found the movie entertaining. It was our usual Thursday night date night. We’re officially celebrating Valentines Day on Saturday since we’ll have more time. I’m not sure what the BF has under his sleeves but he is full of surprises!

Back to makeup…
So I did a look using my new Fafi products the other day. I went back on Wednesday and picked up Fashion Frenzy Blush, the 2 other fafinette dolls I didn’t get, Perky paint pot, Nice Vice paint pot, Fun N Sexy lipstick, Bare slimshine, and cranapple lipliner.

First of all, I love Slimshines! What a great product for us dry lip girls out there. I like Bare Slimshine because it’s very natural…oh and it’s very boy friendly. I wore it on purpose during dinner on Valentines Day because I knew the lipstick wouldn’t show up on the BF during our intermittent dinner smooches. He’s usually paranoid about my glossy lips leaving traces on him, but it was not an issue with Bare Slimshine. I even made him look in a mirror after a kiss to prove that he was lipstick free  It’s not because it’s smudge proof, rather, because it’s a sheer balmy consistency.

Also, Cranapple Cremestick lip liner goes PERFECTLY with fun n sexy lipstick and totally it lipglass. I love it! It’s so much fun to wear such a hot pink lip…on top of it, it reflects blue and it’s super cool!

I couldn’t open Nice Vice paintpot because it was screwed on so dang tight, but I’ll have the BF get to that later. The Fafinette dolls will definitely stay in the packaging so I can sell them for big money down the road.

So I tried to recreate the look of one of the Fafi models…you know, the asian girl with the white and black eyeliner in the mail flyer?

I even filmed a video on this look but I decided not to post it because in the end, I looked crazy! It was just too extreme even for moi…however, I’ll share some pics with you guys because I love you so much. I photoshopped it by adding the radiant effect so the picture seems brighter…it adds to the drama of it. I will say, however, I would rock the hot pink lips from this look again.

Don’t be scared of me after you see the pics! I didn’t have a Fafi bob, so I just wore my colorful hoody.

Warning: this is definitely extreme makeup.
