AS RED AS THE POISON APPLE. It's been a while since I did a FOTD or beauty-related post on its own. So basically, when I was in Florida, Cassandra and I went crazy at ULTA. I did some severe damage (mostly on the Urban Decay Naked Palette) and played make-over for about 90 minutes. When I picked up this NYX lipstick in Snow White, I thought, whooaaaa Bessy way too dark. When I put it on, Cassandra was surprised in a good way. So it's coming home with me ($3.99). This led to a hunt for Snow White-like clothes for Disney World the next day, but in the end it wasn't worth it and I proudly sported these deep red princessy lips to the happiest place on Earth.
Also discovered: Dolce & Gabbana light blue perfume and DKNY's Golden Delicious. I like more citrusy and not-flowery, not-candy perfumes (so basically I can't stand perfume). But these scents are nice! If only a tiny bottle of liquid weren't so expensive ... The Coach Poppy is Cassandra's - isn't it so tiny and cute? Benefit's They're Real! Mascara is so mind-boggling. I have non-existent lashes - Asian, stubby, point straight, fine and light. This mascara separates, elongates, does it all without clumping. Never ever, had I had this happen before.
I can't quite figure out how to take pictures for makeup looks with my DSLR yet. In normal lighting outside the colours are washed out, but with flash I look too white. Any help from fellow Canon Rebel T2i users?

P.S. This post reminds me of how JJ says white as "wuh-hai-t", pronouncing the "h." I give him crap for it all the time but honestly I love it because it's one of the many unique little things about him. End mushy guys segment!
