Weekend Update

My second TESL course is starting tomorrow so I'm not sure when I'll have time to post again.
It's such a beautiful day today but I'm stuck inside doing nothing but playing with my makeup.

I have another long lost eyeshadow I got from my Tokyo trip, the Coffret D'or single eyeshadow in WN-33 that came out last spring/summer.
It's a really deep purple shade that's meant for lining. It has a lot of fine shimmers but doesn't really show up upon application.
I picked it up as an impulse buy in Japan, I didn't want to leave empty handed from one of the drugstores. I've only used it once but didn't like it at the time due to the lack of staying power, but I had to give it a second chance.

I chose this color because the model at the time was using it. I skipped out on the white shadow because I already had my Jill Stuart one.

The shadow is a bit deeper than in the picture, there was too much light in my room.

The first time I used this as a liner, the shadow went everywhere and didn't stay. This time I used a black pencil liner as a base to help it stick and last longer.

I made a pretty thick line with the shadow but it didn't appear too overwhelming when my eyes are opened. It's a nice change from using black all the time.

It's Sunday, I get lazy and didn't do the base makeup nicely which explains the blurring.

With the Coffret D'or Shining Eyeliner in WT-04 for more shimmer.

So that's it for now! Still waiting for my Yes Style package. One of my items was discontinued so I had to call them to replace with something else and now I gotta wait all over again for the item to be in stock.
I also ordered 5 China Glaze polishes from 8ty8beauty and it's almost been a month's wait. They're located in New York so I don't understand why it's still not here. I didn't realize that there was no tracking number until after I placed the order. They didn't e-mail me back to let me know until after it was sent out. $15 shipping and no tracking number? I thought UPS has one. Grrr... Has anyone else ordered from them?

Glamourous March 2010, not a lot of makeup tutorials.

Sweet (March) This issue was a bit on the boring side, didn't find any makeup tutorials. They have a list of top 35 makeup items though.

Your EOTD is very pretty. I hope you get your 8ty8beauty package soon. UPS offers tracking number but, not sure about shipping to Canada. You should try to contact their customer service to find out.
