So this was last Tuesday, when I got dressed and made up for work, then started driving and turned around to go back home mid-commute. Jellybean was sick and couldn't go to school so I went back home to take care of her.
Here, I'm experimenting with a Lancôme travel palette that I bought on the Duty Free shop on an international flight a few years ago. I realized that in my rush I did not line my eyes or apply mascara.
Side note about eyelashes and mascara:
My eyelashes are actually shorter than ever before! They are falling out and baby eyelashes are growing in as my pregnancy progresses. So even if I apply mascara, and with my monolids, they're so short that they're really difficult to see.
But going back to the original topic, I am going to make more of an effort to "complete" the look and line the eyes and apply mascara.
One thing I'm enjoying about Lancôme is that their makeup doesn't budge on me. I have not been using primer on my eyes and have found that their shadows don't travel southwards as the day progresses.
What I don't like about this particular palette is that the concealer (above blush) and the lip sticks/glosses are are located so close to the powder products. I have to be careful about the fallout from powder falling into the creamy products or accidentally dipping brush hairs into the creamy products when I'm trying to go for the powder or blush. However, that said, this is a fantastic little palette to take when you're traveling. You can pull off a complete look with just this palette and not have to bring anything else.
Lancôme is a brand that does sell in China and therefore does submit their products for animal testing. Not too thrilled about that but I already bought the palette so will use it.
She's doing fine now and returned to school most joyfully! I hope she continues to have that attitude towards school.
