End of the Month Lemmings, January

It's the end of the month!  Storms, power outages, generators taking out my finger (man, that hurt), and lots and lots of rain... yeah, I'm not too sorry to see this month go.

On to the lemmings!

1)  Maybelline Eye Studio Color Plush Silk Eyeshadow

I have heard a lot of people say that this is actually quite pigmented, not chalky, and lasts a decent amount of time.  I'm always up for a decent palette, since I have to travel a decent amount, and like to pack light, so this quad seems like it's right up my ally.  Also, since Maybelline is often on sale, I can get it for a decent price, and not worry myself to death when it's in my luggage, wondering if it smashed itself to bits.

2) Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner

I want this one in plum really badly right now, after hearing some great things about it.  Like I stated before, Maybelline often goes on sale, and with an asking price of $10 to start, if you find a BOGO (buy one, get one) sale, you can get this for only $5.  That's a really good price for a gel eyeliner, especially in a shade that you aren't sure about yet.

3) YSL Ombre Duolumières Eye Shadow Duo in Heavenly Beige

I know I don't need more expensive eyeshadows, since I'm afraid to travel with them, but this duo (not pictured) is called "beige/ khaki brown with gold undertones."  I don't think I have a color that comes close to either of those shadows descriptions.  Too bad I traded in my Guerlain blush for a concealer (and another blush, hehe), or I would have gotten this.  The lemming started after I saw this FOTD, and made me look closely at the makeup I have for work.

4) A larger container for my stash.

Right now I'm using old shoe boxes, since those fit under the bed, and my house is ludicrously short of storage space.  Need to do some spring cleaning, so I might be able to find a new spot for my makeup and body/face care stuff, which would be great.  Probably just going to get something cheap from Target, since I don't care much about fancy, I just want functional.

5) e.l.f Brightening Eye Color in Butternut

I have been wanting to try this one for a long time now, since it is the lord of cheap palettes that I can throw in my bag and go, but for some reason, every time I get to checkout, I throw it out of my cart (on  Now that Target carries this line, I might actually purchase something from them, and test it out.  Here's hoping my dollar is well spent!

So that's it for me this month.  Any lemmings out there?
