I personally Love Makeup. I would horde is if I could (and sometimes I have). But I hate it when it takes up space! You can spend $1000's of dollars on makeup, and end up needing a whole room dedicated to it. Not that I'm knocking it of course, who wouldn't want a room dedicated to makeup?
But as a mama that shares a bedroom with a husband and a toddler, I value all the space I can get.
So the first thing that always comes to find are palettes. Yes! Palettes... MAC, Unni, MUFE, Z, DIY, etc whatever! There are lots of ways to store your eyeshadows and blushes. Usually it's the glosses and lip sticks that screw you over.
Do you realize how many "closet room" and "makeup collection" videos where you see these *throws up the air quotes* "GURUS" show what all their YouTube money managed to get themselves? It's sickening how much they've invest to keep shit in the original packaging. But there's one Guru (well actually two) that did something that made sense to me. They had lipstick palettes.
Don't believe me? *shouts to hubs in the background* Roll footage!
Go to 0:53 for the beginning of the "proof"
Are you still with me? Good.
Now hopefully you've gotten a peek at the handfuls of lip palette containers shown in the above video. Wasn't that fucking brilliant? I'm telling you, all my prayers would be answered. I only need one decent one. Seriously how many lipsticks does a gyaru need? There's nudes, pinks, and any color you need to color correct.
Now then, where can we purchase empty lip palettes? Let's start with the expensive shit:
Behold this Japonesque 14-WELL PRO PALETTE. This baby holds 14 lip colors in mini wells (or spaces for you common termed folks) that can travel with you, or look cute on your vanity.
You can enjoy this little slice of Gal Status heaven for the super high price of... *drum roll* $31.00USD!!
This isn't a big price for me of course. But some may find this ridiculously steep and elitist. After all if we rather use our money for gal meets instead of Circle Lenses (esp. when we don't own any), how can we foot the bill for such a sleek palette.
Let's see if we can find something more... GAL approved, shall we?
Now here's something not only cute, but affordable. It's the Generic Anna Sui Style Lip Palette only for $6.00USD.
But of course everyone is not a Hime Gyaru or a Anna Sui freak. So maybe we should find something a little more universal hmm?
I know! Let's find the acutal lip palette shown in the Pixiwoo video?
Honestly, what I did manage to find on Amazon is interesting... but you should check it out for yourself. I personally think it doesn't warrant enough to be mentioned. And please don't ask about Ebay. Just... no.
Anyways, if you would to figure out how to press lipsticks into a palette, check out Goss's video below.
Now, if you're wondering 'I don't know why this bitch is talking about color correcting with lipstick," then stay tuned to this blog, (the GFC is to your right →) because I will explain the elements of color theor. I will show you how to use it, not only fix shit, but make others think you're extremely talented, or have money to blow (trust me on this).
