Does it make me a sicko if I order $300 worth of face paint when I don't have ANY gigs lined up??

Sweet Illusions and Lizzie: they might be back, they've had them for over a year standard in stock in our shop , but they were out last time I went. A pack of 8 brushes was about 3€ or so. All rounds, but really good sizes and very durable brushes with a perfect tip, no hairs coming off and a nice spring to them.
they now also have big flat 2,1.5 and 1 inch flat brushes from vanEyck, but I find the hairs too long. They are hard to load and you pick up lots of excess paint with them.

I'd love to order a tonne of paint too, but I'd have to sell one of my kids to do it, and I think my husband might frown upon that sort of thing Wink

Where did you get the containers for your one-stroke splits? I love them. I want them. I must have them...

I really like Glimmer's glitter palette (okay, I would sleep with it if I could), and I really like Glimmer glitters over Mama Clown for opaqueness on glitter tattoos. 

Metina's iridescent glitter in pearl is my go-to for ALL faces that don't need a specific color and I use her largest (2oz?) poof bottle that I bought nearly 3 years ago. It's the BEST.

They are slightly thinner side to side than TAG one strokes which I love, because my brush that I love to use 3/4", picks up every color so easily!!  I'm actually thinking about transferring my TAG ones into these containers, I always have to decide to get half of one edge color or lose it alltogether.

And in case anyone is curious, if you look in the pic with the large 50gram rainbows...there are 4 at the top that are smaller than the others.  The one with the hinged lid was a free sample of a container I got in the mail from somewhere...but the other three, are containers I bought here


http://www.usplastic.com/catalog/item.aspx?itemid=66330

I really like them too....same thing as with the one strokes, but with a sponge...I don't miss any colors, I kinda scrunch the sponge a bit and put it in and I pick up EVERY color every time.  When I get the time, I may transfer my 50g TAG ones into more of these containers.  I bought 16 of them, so it seems a shame not to use them, since I prefer the way they load better.

I just used them all yesterday with my Fat Max for the first time too...it was so amazing having all those paint choices!!!  Although, someone ran off with my little 4 color one stroke rainbow Sad  I used it so much too...made perfect little rainbows and rainbow hearts and rainbow wuppies...why do people find the need to steal? Ugh!

All those split and rainbow cakes are awesome. I'm a beginner facepainter and don't have mucha t all. Just practice for now. I do however have a huge glitter/mica/temp ink kit. I have a gliiter backup kit too, heehee. I can't stop buying glitter especially, next I want airbrush tattoo setup, maybe airbrush facepaint as well.

This is just my one stroke palette, I have two more normal ones (oh and a small party one.) as you can see I do not have a problem, as there is a pile up the back I have managed to live without -and I am absolutely not in denial about it!!! if anything there are a couple more I need!!!
