Organizing Reorganizing

M·A·C Blush Ombre Vintage GrapeI didn't think of my already planned rendezvous with Mr. DHL when I said that I didn't expect much more mail in a while, and I'm sorry about that. I didn't mean to lie to you. He came knocking on Monday, and the shipment he brought me contained items from my latest M·A·C splurge, which I mentioned briefly here. It was mainly a Give Me Liberty of London-haul, but the package also held one Blush Ombre Vintage Grape and the Eye Colour 3 quad (Mink Pink (veluxe), Bruised Plum (veluxe pearl), Black Tulip (frost), Jungle Moon (matte)) from Spring Colour Forecast, Naked lip pencil from Too Fabulous, powder blush pro palette refill pans in Pinch Me (sheertone) and Dollymix (sheertone shimmer), four empty M·A·C palettes, and least but not last my Stila haul.

It also held a few items that I'd agreed to CP for someone else, and I really enjoy making others happy whenever I have the chance. It's also a nice way of saying "thank you" for helping me getting my hands on products I couldn't have gotten elsewhere when someone has done a CP for me a couple of times. I'm happy to help!

Now I'm doing some organizing again, trying to sort out what I have and what I might need. Who am I kidding? I don't need anything. I've decided to reorganize my M·A·C palettes once again, and update my pictures - I have added a few eyeshadows to my collection since the last pictures were shot. When that is done I'm planning to use one palette for the 15 colors I use most frequently, and that way I don't have to bring out three or four different palettes every time I'm doing my makeup. See, I'm smart (I wonder how long it actually took me to realize that that would be a good idea). I'll just leave open spaces in the different color palettes, and this makes it easy to pop them back into the correct palette when I decide to switch them around a little, without having to reorganize everything once again. The problem returns whenever I buy another eyeshadow pot which requires depotting, and therefore also a space in a palette, and I have to rearrange them all to make room. Why do we bring these problems down on ourselves?

My latest lemming is the NARS Sheer Glow in Stromboli, although I'm not completely sure that Stromboli would be the correct color for my skin tone. I'm thinking that I'll check it out when I go to Paris in July, at least I can have it matched instead of ending up buying the wrong color online - and flushing the $42 down the drain. If anyone has something to add, maybe a tip or two on choosing the correct color, please slip me a comment.
