Viva Las Vegas

Hey Bl0g Fam!

Well I survived our annual Vegas trip in celebration of my girlfriend's birthday. Barely! I got hold of a major stomach bug or some killer food poisoning. I was able to make it through the 3 days but not without some Pepto moments. Terrible! We had some fun in spite of so I am happy.

I may need to admit myself into cosmetics anonymous or something because I spent $150 on cosmetics while there. They had the great deals though. We went into the Cosmetic Company while at the outlet mall and let me tell you they had the MAC clear lip glass 3 pack for $24 WHAT!! That is unheard of so I had to scoop that up. They also had my all time favorite Trance Plant for $10 and Sweet as Cocoa Shimmer tone blush for $12.25 WHAT!! I had to get it. Then we went to Sephora. WHY!?!?! I subject myself to such terrible temptation. I purchased some Clarins gentle exfoliator and while I was walking my girl was talking to an associate concerning foundations. E and I have such hard times finding the right foundation for both of our skin tones. She has red undertones and I have red, gold, and some yellow undertones. You can imagine how hard that is. MAC has me looking green, Clinique has me looking ashy, and everyone else has me looking orange. I have been using the Queen Collection powder which has been cool. The associate brings out some Smashbox for my girl to try. What? Smashbox? She applies to E's cheeks and I am looking like you didn't put anything on there. Put some more on the apples of her cheek so we can see. The lady does that it and voila it is like she is wearing absolutely nothing compared to what she already had on her face. A naturally soft hue that enhanced her face not overpowering it. Awesome! She asks me over and over again Trina is this okay. I am like it is more than okay it is beautiful and I would have never thought Smashbox would create something like that for our skin tones. I guess you should never stereotype from a name. So of course you know I am pumped up like ME ME ME next. She brings out the D1 and I am prepared for the worst. My girl was Trina you need to purchase this ASAP. I look in the mirror and I am like OH MY GOODNESS. Guess you know what happens next....I am in the checkout line with my Smashbox D1. LOL! I am going to admit myself into CA (Cosmetics Anonymous). Hi my name is Trina and I am a Cosmetics and Hair product junkie.

Everyone should experience Vegas at the very least once. You should go and take in some shows and shopping. You will enjoy it!
