Hi Tao,
I'm a huge fan! I was wondering if it would be possible for you to purchase these eyeshadows at your walmart and then have them sent to me? I"m in Tampa and I've been to literally every walmart looking for them. I really liked the last two colors (browns/oranges/golds) that you have listed. I'll pay for shipping. Please let me know. THanks! Ani

Ani said...

Just to clarify the grand canyon and the desert bloom. Thank you

Those look great! Love your look as always! Btw, have you heard of the Jesse's girl line at Rite-Aids?

I want those BonBon shadows!! They're gorgeous!!!

Seriously, I love how you do your liner. It's thick, but as a monolid, I understand. I mean, if I don't do it thick, it doesn't even make a difference on me.

I notice in your vids you do it in like one or 2 swoops...HOW DO YOU DO THAT?!?! It's like perfect everytime, lol.
