Random Makeup Porn

I have the OPI Skyfall collection sitting here waiting to be swatched, but I have to take a break from swatching for a couple days because I sliced my finger open and it hurts like a mofo when I get nail polish remover in it.  Oh, and want to know how I did it?  I swear, I hurt myself in the dumbest ways (like that one time I cut my hand on ROMAINE LETTUCE)... 

I was reaching for a makeup brush (I keep my brushes upright in a cup) and somehow ended up with a metal lash comb embedded in the side of my finger.  Sorry if you're squeamish about this type of thing, but it totally blew my mind.  When I pulled my hand back, the lash comb was attached.  ARRRGHHHOMGWTF.  And it's my favorite lash comb, too, but from now on I think I'll store it laying down.


Anyway, instead of just not posting anything for a couple days, I thought I'd go through some of my unposted old pictures from half-finished reviews because they're just sitting there uselessly in my drafts folder.

  1. Not going to lie, totally have cut myself on my metal lash comb, too. We should both pretend that's a totally normal kind of accident to have. Then again this is coming from the girl who has scars on her chest now because she dumped a bowl of hot soup down her shirt. Apparently that's not where my mouth is... who knew!

  8. Still LMAO at your post title, but poor thing, you got a quite unusual cut... I got the tip of my index cut while peeling sweet potatoes... that's a lot less glamour than your own cut XD

  10. Get well soon! I bought a couple of those Pantone lipsticks, I think they're great! I am also looking forward to your Skyfall swatches. I already bought 7 of them plus the flakie topcoat but I love seeing your swatches anyway. Gorgeous collection in my humble opinion!

  23. That is also my favorite lash comb -- and I too sustained an injury from it! Those tines are no joke. Absently had it turned the wrong way and briskly "brushed" my brows with the sharp side before I realized it. Ouch!

  24. Owwwww, I sure hope you heal quickly. Your nails could probably use a break anyway.

  26. I hope you heal quickly. Finger cuts are nasty ... I once cut myself on a baguette. No kidding. I bought it fresh from the bakery, opened the paperbag, took the baguette out and there was a kind of spiky baked ridge on the surface of the baguette ^^ very hard baked baguette-dough, sticking out ... and totally slashed my finger.

    There's nothing like a bit of nail polish remover to find all those little cuts you didn't know you had ^^


    Btw, this "Sephora + Pantone Universe Alchemy of Color Lipstick" , is it any good? How does it work with the color being only in the middle and a lot of glittery gloss all around it?

    ReplyDelete
  27. I've cut myself on a baguette before too! And sliced part of my finger off peeling vegetables... owwwww

    Anyway, the Sephora lipstick was pretty aweful, in my opinion. It felt greasy and glittery, the color applied unevenly and slid everywhere and only lasted about 10 minutes before I had to reapply. Definitely not worth the price. :(

  28. Oww. Fingers are a pain because we use our hands so much, even if one isn't a famous hand model like you! Heal quickly. I love make up porn, the lipstick at the end looks cool.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I never got this problem. On the other hand, I slice my fingers a lot in the rare days I cook.

    Since your comb is ruined, let me give you a suggestion. Sephora also has this normal (?) comb which comes with a plastic case. It looks a lot like the one you have, though it has a purple handle. I'm unsure if it's available where you live.

    Either buy that one or steal the plastic case.

  30. I don't know if there's any difference in terms of quality, but there is a another Sephora brush of that type with a coloured handle which comes with a plastic case.

  31. Awww... sorry to hear about your finger! You are my favorite nail blogger, and I was hoping to see the Skyfall Collection on your site. Then I saw your comments about cutting your finger (ouch!) on the lash comb, and I totally feel your pain! I don't like to use nail polish remover when I have cuts on my fingers, either. I store my make-up brushes in a cup, too... but I keep my lash comb in a separate, smaller cup; along with my brow scissors and tweezers. I also invested in a folding lash comb (Sonia Kashuk) so I wouldn't stab myself anymore, either. :)

  32. Sorry about your finger! You are my favorite nail blogger on the planet, and I came here looking for the Skyfall Collection swatches. Sorry to see that you weren't able to do them yet because you got stabbed. :o(
    I keep my make-up brushes standing up in a cup, too. But I bought a folding eyelash comb that I keep in a separate cup along with other sharp tools (tweezers, brow scissors, etc.) It is a very good, metal, eyelash comb by Sonia Kashuk in case you are interested. :) Recover quickly!!! I'll be looking forward to your future swatches! XOXO- Diane

  33. I was hoping to see your swatches of the milani eyeshadows on... I'd just hate to buy it and have to take it back because I don't like it.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Who knew the hidden dangers of lash combs! Maybe it was just in a peevish mood, watch out for it! x x x
