Part 1 of my (early) birthday present to myself. I fully intend to lay waste to my bank account and happily bleed it dry when Illamasqua sends me my birthday voucher (apparently they send the birthday coupons the day before your birthday, which means I’ll get mine next week).
It’s so beautiful, I still can’t get over it. I’ve wanted one of these for quite a while and now my wallet is sad but at least I’ve got my hands on one! I still haven’t tried it on yet, but I intend to soon
If you every want to try to understand me, listen to these nine albums, listed by release date because it will depend on the day which is more defining:
Moulin Rouge! 2001:
Don’t ask me to sing every song on this album, all the parts, in the sung range because I will. And I will cry in front of you. If you’ve never heard this album, listen to “El Tango de Roxanne”.
The Fame Monster 2008:
Lady Gaga is the first woman I ever fell in love with, and the first woman I wanted to be, and this album solidified my eternal devotion. She is a goddess, and if every gay man has one to worship she is mine. Listen to “Speechless”.
Every artist on here has a visceral post-break-up revenge album, and I cycled through all of them this past October/November. Also Christina Aguilera collaborating with Nicki Minaj and Peaches give me life. Listen to “Vanity”.
If you were to ask me if I was over the cancellation of “Smash” after season 2, I would scream and weep and mutter out a no after a fifteen minute scene of why I’m not. And when I publish my writings someday, the reason I fell in love with Marilyn Monroe is because of this show. Listen to “Don’t Forget Me”.
Not Thinking Straight 2013:
Okay so I’m a little upset that I just found out about a cute gay pop artist that loves comic books and also GAY POP MUSIC OMG. The first single also calls out the shit Matt Fishel probably had to deal with in making this album. Listen to “When Boy Meets Boy”.
1000 Forms of Fear 2014:
Instead of Christina’s get drunk and have sex post-break-up, Sia feeds my emotions with bombastic dancing and swinging from chandeliers. Listen to “Burn the Pages”.
The Pinkprint 2014:
If I were to pick a goddess below Gaga, it would very closely be Nicki. “Anaconda” has been in my dance repertoire for three years solid. Listen to “Grand Piano”.
Fifty Shades of Grey 2015:
Yes the movie is shit and promotes unhealthy relationships, based on an even shittier books, but my damn is Jamie Dornan hot and one of the greatest underused actors, and my damn does Danny Elfman score a movie. Listen to “I Put a Spell on You”.
Dangerous Woman 2016:
If you have not listened to this album, I dare say you have not lived. Ariana Grande has defined a LOT of who Stella Vanilla is, if you ever meet her. Also JASON ROBERT BROWN. Listen to “Moonlight”.
Don't leave the manakete alone in a room full of buttons
Context: so we’re playing a rift session and our group which consists of a Orc cyber knight named Travis , a Khajiit Mage named gizargo, a nightbane rouge named Matt, an alien fox named ashen (my brother), a ww2 defected nazi commander pirate named klaus, a robo pilot named Gwen , and a crippled Manakete Mage named Morgan (me). We were heading toward a city under siege to destroy secret info, my character floated to the top of a gate tower in an attempt to open the main gate, and while invisible tried to sneak around a demon and failed, in my panicked state I found the control panel and this is what happened:
DM: alright roll a d20
Me OOC : *rolls a 2* oh no..
DM: ok so Morgan is so panicked by the fact the demon knows she’s there that you randomly start pushing buttons, one of these buttons activates a rift that is slowly growing and consuming the city
The entire party to me(OOC): *bursts into laughter* what the hell did you do!?/ you screwed up!/no! the loot!
Ashen: *yells up to me after seeing the rift open* Dragon lady run!
Morgan proceeds to “run” as fast as she can with a speed of 5 out of the tower where the rest of the group meets up and heads for a cliff nearby, after the session we found out that the rift was going to suck up the boss the DM planned for us and I changed the outcome of the war that was going on, needless to say Morgan now has a fear of demons and I have a newfound respect for myself.

what are some of your favorite/must-have high-end, worth the price, eyeshadow pallets and lipsticks? i'm a college student so high-end isn't always doable for me, but i'm looking to invest in some really great pallets and lipsticks. thanks!
High end lipsticks I think are worth the price tag….
Chanel Lipsticks $36. My favorite lines are the Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte, Rouge Allure Luminous Intense and the Rouge Coco Shines. The Rouge Allure shades always feel light weight on the lips while still packing on a lot of color and always go on evenly and smooth. The Coco Shines are great for adding a thin wash of color!
NARS Audacious Lipsticks $32. These are so creamy, pigmented and long wearing. They also come in many, many shades so you’re likely to find a shade or two (or 10) that you like. The Velvet Matte lip pencils are great too!
Bite Beauty Lipsticks $24. Bite Beauty is a lippie only brand so they specialize in lip products so all of their lip products are great quality and very well done. They have lip creams, lip pencils, lipsticks that are all very pigmented and comfortable to wear on the lips.
Dior Addict Extreme Lipsticks $33. If you suffer from more dry lips or prefer a more glossy, luminous finish try out Dior Addict Extreme lipsticks! They go on a like a super pigmented balm/chapstick and feel really light weight on the lips.
Eyeshadow palettes I think are great quality and worth the price tag….
Lorac Pro 1 & 2 $42. These palettes come with a row of matte and a row of shimmer shades makes it absolutely perfect to create a wide variety of looks. Many eyeshadow palettes are really lacking when it comes to including matte shades but they are vital for creating complete looks. They come with many blending and crease colors! The shadows are also super pigmented and easy to blend.
Viseart Eyeshadow Palettes $80. They make 4 eyeshadow palettes (one all matte) and are made for makeup artists so these are very high quality palettes. Very pricey but if you have the money to spend and love eyeshadow these palettes are a dream!
Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palettes $49. There are two Chocolate Bar palettes and each come with a wide variety of neutral shades. The shadows are buttery and pigmented and include a few matte shades!
