Thank you to those who gave me support in my last (deleted) entry. I decided to delete it because I posted it in the heat of the moment, at a time when I felt vulnerable and hurt without thinking much about it. Thick skin is still growing... but whatevs, it's just a hairflip ;P
I didn't have time yesterday to post my FOTD, I worked all day... very tiring. Thank you everyone who gave me advice on the whole job situation. I think I will apply for MAC, hopefully as a part-time/freelance worker. I'm not sure when, but I'm not really sure I'll blog about it if I don't get the job... lol that would be embarassing like WHOA! I think I'll try sometime next year, after I gain more confidence with my bolder looks on my clients & friends. It's getting there though.

I've been using the Smolder Eye Kohl Pencil for a couple of weeks I believe, ever since my sweet Graphblack Technakohl Liner ran out. I hear that Smolder is almost the blackest black, second to Feline Kohl Power Pencil (that I LOATH).
My expectations of Smolder however have not been met. My Graphblack was great, it stayed fairly long, and didn't smudge as easily as Smolder. Smolder runs pretty easily and smudges like hell. It's not as bad as Feline, but it does have many of the bad qualities that Feline has. I'd say Smolder is second to Feline as far as blackness goes, and in smudging. Feline is #1 in runnning, Smolder #2 in my book. I'm going to head over to MAC sometime soon, hopefully to the MAC Pro store in Northpark this Saturday *fingers crossed* to pick up a few items, Graphblack being the first. My list which I anticipate will grow:
-Graphblack Technakohl Liner
-A Few Pigments:
~Clear Sky Blue
~Primary Yellow (or Chrome Yellow e/s)
-Whatever the scrub is called... forgot off the top of my head
-(Possibly) Cold Cream Wash... I've never tried a cold cream before so I might give it a whirl.
Sounds like a lot huh? I don't know if I'll make it though, so we'll have to see! :D If I do, I'll let y'all know how it goes.
Thanks for the love and support y'all! Night!
