One side of mine that I've not really shared with you, is that I'm an avid collector. I'm not kidding, I use to collect stamps and comic books as a kid (not referring to them as graphic novels, cos let's face it, it was just "Archie"), magazines later on, those Titanic movie stickers (I think I'm still missing one of those), you name it!
Of course, I've since grew up (well, I still hold on to my Titanic stickers...), so I've moved on to things like shoes and coffee table books. And of course, makeup! You know, like the proper "grown-up" stuff! :)
So, I thought I'd share with you one part of my beauty collection that I'm most proud of: it's none other than my limited edition, for the most part, engraved face powders. Yes, I have no problem admitting that a lovely carved design lures in me at the drop of a hat, because these are so much more than makeup items in my eyes: they're mini works of art! In fact, some of them are so lovely that I've yet to dip a brush or finger into them - hence the lack of swatch photos! I do intend to try all of them out though... juuuust not today!
