Me Stuff

I'm Samantha Jamie, prefer Jamie. I really don't have many friends who wear makeup, and none of them wear anything but drugstore stuff. Not that I'm knocking drugstore stuff! I use inexpensive makeup with as much glee as the more expensive stuff. Anyway, I'm looking online for a good community to chat about all the makeup. Hopefully this board turns out to be a good fit!

I'm a stay-at-home-mom who also works from home (there needs to be a word for that) I'm a freelance editor and I sell a few things on eBay now and then. I like to read, swim, sleep, make my son giggle, mess with clothes, and do odd things with eyeshadow. I'm just starting to get more into skincare products, since I'm a whopping twenty-six years old. I live in Gretna, a suburb of Omaha, Nebraska. It's not as bad as it sounds.

Cosmetic stuff
Things I really love and use a lot:
Urban Decay (eyeshadows, pencils, lipsticks)
TheBalm (eyeshadows, blushes, lip gloss and lipsticks, Time Balm stuff)
Smashbox (color-correcting primer)
Tarte (blushes, brushes, lipsurgences, mascara, some eye shadows)
Revlon (balm stains, any lip product really)
Maybelline (Color Tattoo shadows, Bouncy Blushes)
Meow Cosmetics (eyeshadows)
Fyrianne (eyeshadows)
Aromaleigh (eyshadows)
A whole bunch of other indie-type shadow places
Wet N Wild (eyeshadows, lipsticks)
MAC (eyeshadows, liners, and lipsticks)
Yes To (towlettes, lip balm products)
NARS (lipsticks, eyeshadows)
Bare Minerals (concealer/foundation/veil, eyeshadows, lipsticks)
Korres (lip butter, lipstick, body butter, anti-aging stuff)
Olay (anti-aging stuff)
Neutrogena (the OLD moisturshine lipsticks, cleansing products, anti-aging)
Rock and Republic (eyeshadows)
Too Faced (shadow insurance)
BeneFit (Blushes, lipsticks)
Polishes: Zoya, Cult Nails, Julep, Essie, OPI, Orly

Things I love, have used a bit, and want more of
Hourglass (mineral veil primer, in general)
Illamasqua (powder blushers and powder eyeshadows)
Lancome foundation

Things I want to try or own:
TheBalm (Palettes I don't have, anything really)
Urban Decay (various new and vintage stuff)
Lime Crime Shadows
Sugarpill Shadows and palettes
Illamasqua polishes
MAC foundation
Hourglass Foundation
Dior anything

My favorite eyeshadow colors are warm neutrals, (especially pink) and all shades of purple or green. I like matte, frost, glitter all of it. My favorite lipstick shades are "My lips, but better" type shades. Blush colors, nude or light pink/coral. Polish colors, ALL OF THEM
I hate orange and teal. 

That's probably a big enough first post. Any questions or anything, I'd be glad to answer.
