Missoni, Makeup, Robots ...the usual!

Last night, I finally made a Target run to try and score some Missoni goods!
I went on the first day of the launch at 6pm and should've known better than to think I'd find something. 

To my surprise, the Mount Pleasant Target didn't disappoint me last night!

I got these cosmetic bags:

and this jumper...

(which obviously needs to be paired with a long-sleeved undershirt, tights, & boots!)

I also visited the MAC counter & purchased...

...a paint pot in "Indianwood"
(loved by Gwyneth Paltrow)

A paint pot is a primer, a base, and a cream eyeshadow, all rolled into one.
I wear "Painterly" almost every day, as it's a nude color with no shimmer.  In my opinion, it works better than Urban Decay's Primer Potion in terms of keeping your eyeshadow "put" all day!

Indianwood is a metallic, golden bronze.
I'm wearing it today -- applied it all over the lid (up to the crease), then I blended it in with a clean, fluffy brush, then added in a white highlight to further blend & accentuate the brow bone & inner corner.

...I also bought a new satin blush, "Well Dressed"

To me, this blush looks lighter in real life than it does in this picture.
It's a very light pink with cool undertones, which is sometimes hard to find in a pink blush.

This blush gives you a natural glow!

This morning, I got to simulate a real surgery on the Da Vinci Robot.  It really is the future in laporascopic surgery because the robot (controlled by the surgeon) has a wrist-like, full range of motion once inside the patient.  (Regular laporascopy can only go up, down, side to side.)

I may or may not have beaten a surgeon in the efficiency test on the Da Vinci Robot.
Not trying to brag but, ...okay, yes I am.

We were also fed a breakfast from one of the chefs on Iron Chef America

...just a couple perks of my job!

Hope Tuesday has been a happy one for all of you so far!
I'm anxiously awaiting the release date for the iPhone 5...  my cracked Droid is just not cutting it.
