miss purple,
I don't know what it is about MAC shadows.. I think they are fab quality for the price. And I love the colours. I have some Urban Decay boxes and individual shadows, some Elizabeth Arden.. but it always comes back to my MAC ones.

lele, I love that setup.. everything looks so neat and accessible.. you are giving me ideas I am so ready to ditch this bag. It gets messed up a few days into the work week or one night into the weekend

my advice would be to lay the staples out and use your big bag which looked great for all the stuff you experiment with or use for evening.... you have a great collection!

The stuff is called Paints, and it is my favorite! It goes on creamy and dries to a powder, so it doesn't crease. As for looking too thick, it really depends on the appliation, as with most makeup... as well as the colour you choose.

I mostly use paints for a very smoky eye. Graphito (a dark grey color) and Existential (a dark green) all dry to look very thick. But another color I have, Shimma (an almost metallic pinky/purple) can be applied to look very natural and fresh if applied sparingly. And it stays on all day without budging.

When Paints first came out they were released in very bold colours but recently MAC has released more neutral and natural shades. I would definitely recommend them to you.

Really, they are just like eye shadows.. but hugely pigmented because of the form they are in. And much easier to apply if you want to get very precise application, because they start off creamy. With the right brush you can literally paint on a detailed makeup look.

Today during school I was thinking about this same topic! Came here and found it already posted!

I keep my make up in a large gallon size Ziplock bag. It is ripping though, and way too full, so I am trying to come up with somewhere else to keep itm in a more organized way.

In my purse, I have pressed powder and lipgloss for touch ups. In my school locker I have a little make up bag with mascara, neautral eyeshadow with a hint of shimmer, and some sheer lipgloss.

I bought an organizer at an office supply store (I assume it is for desk items). It is black with 4 drawers and a flip open lid on top. I use that for color items. I put essentials(eye cream, primer, foundation, powder, etc in a top bathroom drawer. Until recently I worked for Clinique and had to wear their products to work so I kept all of those in a big round bag that zipped open. I keep a small bag in my purse with touch up items in it.

I don't have a habit of carrying around my makeup in a bag since I dont touch up that much

anyway at home I just keep my makeup within a clear case I got with a Calvin Klein GWP early last year

here's a pic (lid off) with some of my makeup (the pic was taken a few months ago) and its usually alot more tidier than it is in the picture
hello. hello, i'm sooooo glad that i saw all your mak-up eastendsnob, because i don't feel so guilty about my gays and bags that at the i KNEW I COULD NOT LIVE WITHOUT!

Nobody should feel guilty about having too much makeup. There is simply no such thing!

My list of makeup that I never wear:
Three cheap eyeshadows, green eyeliner, brown eyeliner, black eyeliner (sometimes used), a pink lipstick from my mum, blush, white face powder (?), assorted lipchaps.
(All kept neatly shoved in my cupboard)
