Surely, the End is Near

This cannot end well. God will punish us. Today's debauchery, perversity and lack of morals just keep getting worse and worse, with no end in sight. Good is now evil and evil is now good.

Finding my focus.

I started this blog as a way to express my thoughts about things going on in the world and how they affect Catholics and Catholics in the public arena but also some mundane things, too. I've noticed I've posted a lot of make-up reviews and not much else in light of Catholicism or what's going on in the world. I'm reconsidering the aim of this: I love make-up but I'm not expert by any means. I've been avoiding the news the most of the past year, so I'm not sure where to go with this. Perhaps take a hiatus from this blog and focus on the Rosary Page and the blog dedicated to the Suffering Souls. I'm going through a very trying and difficult time in my personal life at the moment as well. I don't know, we shall see I suppose. I know I've been just terrible in updating the others. Maybe combine them into one? I will think and pray hard on this.

Pros: Covers Well, Multipurpose, Brightens, Easy To Apply, Blends Well
Best Uses: Age Spots, Discoloration, Under Eyes, Primer
Describe Yourself: Budget Buyer
Skin Tone: Fair
I really do like this product. I'm getting older and noticing more discoloration under my eyes and I wear glasses as well, which tend to make my eyes look smaller and tired. The way I use this product is: the concealer I dot under my eyes focusing on the area just under my eye and any darkness and puffiness, then blend with a finger. It has a light consistency but provides light to medium coverage. Next I dot the highlighter all around my eyes, a large circle and blend. This brightens the area and makes me look more "awake". Let it soak in and tighten and remove puffiness. I put it on before foundation but after primer.

I can't get over how incredibly soft this brush is! I have to keep it put up because my kids love to play with it. I use it for the e.l.f. mineral foundation and it applies it evenly and seamlessly. It's a high quality item and a terrific value! Love it, love it, love it!

Disppointing

Cons: Weird consistency, Drying, Not True To Color

Describe Yourself: Classic Style

I first bought this in Fashionista but it was a very unnatural pink color (perhaps better suited to someone with cool undertones). So I thought I'd try it in Heartbreaker and that shows up as a brownish color. Someone described the consistency as "watered down clay" and I'd have to agree. It emphasizes my cracked lips and just looked plain weird on my lips. I love ELF but this, not so much.

Dress Dare 2011 progress

Day 4 (May the fourth be with you... if I hear that one more time I'll puke). Every day I've worn a dress. I've been lucky with the weather, not too hot and not too cold. I like wearing a dress because it's just so easy to slip on; no worrying about coordinating tops and bottoms. I don't feel particularly feminine or modest. In fact it seems to be working against any sense of humility, as in "Hey! I look pretty dang good!" But, I'll keep plugging away.
