Kisses From Everyone

Coastal Scents haul! I was very impressed with the quality of the last couple of brushes I bought (the badger blush and the badger angled contour brush for less than $7 each.. and they pick up colour like no tomorrow!) so I decided to finish my collection of necessary brushes.

9 things for under $40USD!
6 brushes (less than $4 each)
Angled eyeliner, 3 eyeshadow brushes, eyelash separator, and a foundation brush.
+ 3 potted gel liners in true black and 24K (they were having a sale - buy 2 get 1 free, $7 each and apparently even better than MAC Fluidline that retails for $18, though I must say MAC has more gorgeous-er shades and colours).
13 rich in color Gel Liners have arrived, these apply with ease using an angle liner brush. We were sure to pass out samples to several of our testers who have used these for 2 months. Application is easy, has the ability to design and be creative, lasts all day without smudging or creasing and are highly pigmented.
Pursebuzz's swatches look nicely pigmented. The black looks very black and the gold has a nice metallic-ness to it. I wanted a purple but their deep plum looks too watery for me and Grape Vine is too light metallic.. not very me. It's too bad Turquoise is a matte.
Don't expect to be disappointed in this order considering all the great reviews from their site.

Booked my flight today via AirCanada non-stop! I'm leaving Feb 21 and coming back July 11th. How sweet, my Grandpa wants to take me to the airport to see me off =)

Gah though... homesickness might kill me. I wonder what's worse - homesickness or the feeling from a breakup? The latter is definitely longer-lasting, I hear.... just gotta get over the first few days. Doesn't seem like many people have felt homesickness before. I'm strange in that about once every 2 years, I'll feel so homesick even though I'm in my own bathroom in my own house and I'm not going anywhere that I'll even start crying. Good thing is that orientation is the day after I arrive so I'll be pretty busy I hope... and not jet-lagged!

3 things I'm most anxious/scared about:
1. Homesickness
2. Getting transferable credit for my courses
3. Language barrier -- gotta practice/learn some everyday!

I have a headache.. the one that just pounds once in a while on the top right side of my head, gotta sleep...
