KATE Deep Eyes Palette FOTD

I'm baaaaack! I am super-exhausted now because it took me over two hours to get home from work...damn train accident! They're really common here...so if someone ever tells you the train system is reliable...pssshhhhh...yeah right! The train was PACKED, but I was lucky enough to grab a seat from Tokyo station. At one point, there was a drunk old business man leaning so low, he was damn near sittin' on my lap!!! I had to *politely* push him off a couple times!

Anywho, I recently got all the KATE palettes from their 'Deep Eyes' collection. I saw it on Yahoo! Auctions and I nabbed the set for a fraction of the retail price...yeeaah baby!

Here's a look I did with the purple/pink palette. I will upload pics of all the palettes in a different post :) Enjoy!
The Palette
The Look
Face Products Used (L to R): NYX Concealer, Laura Mercier Stick Foundation, Laura Mercier Foundation Primer, M.A.C Beauty Powder in Smooth Harmony and Flower Mist Dew <--from the Emanuel Ungaro collection! Eye Makeup (L to R): Shu curler, Max Factor Mascara, UDPP, M.A.C Technakhol in Graphblack, KATE Super Sharp Liner in Black, Sweets Sweets Brow Pencil in Dark Brown and KATE Deep Eyes palette in Purple.
Contoured the cheekbones a bit with M.A.C Smooth Harmony Beauty Powder...
I never got around to showing you guys my 'work space'! I bought this dresser at Nitori, the Japanese version of IKEA...I'd say it was the equivalent of about $350 USD...I LOVE it! My boyfriend helped me pick out the light fixture.
What am I wearing? Turqoise Forever21 cami, gray velour zip-up hoodie from some discount store in Pacific Beach, SD and 7 For All Mankind distressed jeans. Nothing too fancy schmancy.

You are soooo darn cuteee!!! and I looooooooooove your workspace, omg -- why the heck dont we have something like that here in the US -- it's PERFECT!!!

as for my peely scrub, my skin is superrrrr duper sensitive, but this scrub by sana, gave me no bad affects or reactions, so you should be ok - I definetly felt no type of sting at all using it.

but, i guess it's different for everyone, so it's just best to try it!!! ^_^

Yay for reading me on the train! I'm flattered!!
