I rarely do! I can tell you the last two times I have- my wedding and a fashion show for Earth Day last year. I love the way they look, but not practical for everyday usage.

...This makes me feel sooo old! I can't believe I finally look slutty in these clothes. I've always been petite until my stomach problems and now va-voom! It's so crazy. Where do I shop now? I still think I'm too young to wear "womens" clothes but apparently I'm too "big" for "juniors" clothes. I thought teenagers had boobs too, but apparently not. Even some of the larges were tight on my chest!
I ended up getting this purple plaid shirt (it was the only thing that fit!). I also ended up getting 4 pairs of eyelashes. If you have a Wet Seal near you, definitely go there! They have tons of cute (expensive looking!) fake lashes for $1 each! One wasn't available online but they are black with little black feathers at the edges.
Forever 21 did not have even ONE of the THREE things I wanted to get there. I was kind of salty...I really wanted that skirt! I'm going to be wearing the plaid halter with black skinny jeans and bright purple shoes.
Any girls around my age out there? Where the hell do you shop without looking like your boobs are jumping out?? I'm so distraught!
Now here's a look I can do! I'm in love with the light blue shadow in the inner corners (Sephora Brand!). I'm actually surprised that vibrant pastels are "in" for Fall, usually its very moody and dark.
Bold brows have been in for awhile now, it seems. Unfortunately, my eyebrows do not grow like that. They are mostly blonde and very light. When I darken them, I look angry!
Oh, big hair, I love you. Not necessarily on this model or in this style, but generally, I love big hair. You complete me.
I actually like pressed blushes better. I tend to overdo loose powder blushes! I think blush is the makeup that is most likely to be done wrong...the wrong color, too much, too litte. I don't personally use bronzer, but generally on other people, I also use pressed. My favorites right now are Too Faced Papa Don't Peach and Urban Decay Quickie! I use Physician's Formula pressed mineral blush in Rosy Glow for an everyday look (sometimes you don't want a sparkly face!).
I want something to wear with my *hot* bright yellow platforms. Just thinking about them puts a smile on my face! All the clothes are from Forever 21 and I'm hoping they will be there when I go to the mall tonight.
I'm actually getting my hair done, which is so much fun and I rarely do it. I'm going to be getting big, bouncy curls put half up. For makeup, I'll be doing super sultry smokey eyes...very bold, cat-like shadow. Nude lips (of course!). Big, sparkly eyelashes. I never really dress up or get to do extreme makeup, so this will really be fun! I'll try to get some pics with my phone!
Utterly Fabulous Fall is made up of all the rich, sexy tones that suddenly start to show up in trees, and clothing with a few little shots of color as an added fun twist on the norm. As we mentally start to put away the soft sorbet shades of Summer and suddenly begin to transform into delicious, and luxurious little butterflies we just can't help but start to crave a bold new palette of shades for our eyes.
There are 45 new colors in this collection, which means that there is basically something for everyone.
Heroes Prevail- sheerest pale mauve with golden twinkle
Disco Rhetoric- royal navy shimmer with crystal twinkle
One Thousand Faeries- (I *love* the name for this one!) amazing hot pink shimmer fused with copper, gold, and pink twinkle
Royalty in Training- deep pigmented blackberry shimmer with a bit of hot pink shimmer
Far From Famous- sheer cocoa mauve shimmer with hints of berry
Glee Club Dropout- intense salmon copper iridescent twinkle with layers of gold and copper
When it comes to large collections like this, I try to pick out the most unusual colors that I know I don't have. Plus, I'm a sucker for mauve...

A quirky take on the Hammer 'House of Horrors' movies, this
season we've been inspired by tales of wicked vampires and
damsels in distress.Grungy 80s inspired denim - slashed jeans
and bleach splattered shirts - create a new season scare when
teamed with blood dripping tees and chunky knits plastered with
tongue-in-cheek motifs.Lace up your platform boots and get ready to
kiss a vampire!
I guess I'm a little torn on this collection...I like the
concept (my husband is sort of a cult horror movie buff) and think this could be
OUT in some sizes. To me, this reminds me of something my big, silly fireman
dad would have worn back in the early 90s. It's just so incredibly
unflattering and I'm also not a huge fan of tees with words printed on them.
Muscles tees should have stayed away, far, far away. Also, to add the
hilarity the website says to "pair with cut off denim shorts", just in case you didn't look trashy enough in your muscle tee.
This is called the "Acid Wash Sleeveless Gillet"...just the name brings fear to my soul. Only *cough sarcasm cough* $70.
Well, I can live with this jacket. It's cute, I like the rolled up sleeves. I don't understand the point of having words on the inside of your jacket, but to each his own. Then, I see the $110 price tag...I could get something like this at Walmart for 1/18th the price. Seriously, they have some cute shit sometimes.Now, the shoes. I thought Horror Girl shoes would be big, chunky boots or black, thick heeled platforms. I was so wrong. Apparently, "dainty" is the new "scary"? Vampires wouldn't wear these...You can't kick ass in faux velvet.

I used to. I'm a bit more selective now. I'll probably do a review on ELF products in the future, but in a nutshell, they suck (for me). There's a lot of hype about ELF products, but I purchased a pretty hefty amount and just don't like anything I bought. So, 20 products for $25 seems like a good deal...until you realize that none of the eyeshadows are pigmented and the eyeliners feel like they are scraping off a layer of skin.
Generally, I don't feel comfortable putting $1 blush on my face...it just doesn't seem like anything manufactured that cheap could be good for my skin! Plus, I got the *worst* eye infection from NYC eyeliner, my doctor told me that a lot of people using them do from the wood! (Apparently, the wood on those eyeliners isn't always clean, even if you sharpen your heart out).
So, long story short, no. I don't waste my money anymore. I can get much better products from small companies that work better and won't irritate/tear off my skin.
