The Cosmetic Table of the Elements.

Posted by on Thursday, February 23, 2012

This is me floating a new idea for the blog; Ever since I experienced the joys of a Saturday job (and consequently, disposable income for what feels like the first time in my life) many of the posts on here have been leaning towards hauls rather than the (questionable) nail art and looks this blog used to feature more heavily. The long and short of it is that I feel I should give products that I currently own some more love, as well as rushing to invest in the latest and greatest.

Combining this love (beauty/cosmetic blogging) with just one of my other great loves (science) led me to this, The Cosmetic Table of the Elements. At least wait for me to explain before you click that big red X button!
'Elements' refers to the individual items of makeup that I would wear to give a certain 'look', and the whole name is a play on the Periodic Table, obviously. Call it a Lenten challenge, but if it takes off and I collect enough of these 'sets' I would organise them into some sort of table so that if I were ever stuck for inspiration, I could go and have a look.

It'd run like so: I'd pick a theme, say, 'peachy keen sixth former', and come up with this:

This would include a short description of how they were applied, what inspired me to group that particular collection of products together etc.

At the end of the day, if I wanted a blog with no readers I'd be keeping a diary, which is why I'm asking you guys what you think? Good idea? Leave it? If you would prefer to comment anonymously, feel free! As ever, I don't mind :)


  1. I think it's a great idea! I'm always looking for inspiration for new looks myself.

  2. I think it's a good idea!
    Especially because I feel like it's true to how people select their makeup products on a regular basis. Like, they choose a personality that they want their makeup to convey for that occasion and then pick their stuff and how they are gonna apply it accordingly.
    Or at least that's how I do it.
    So I say yes yes yes.

    Also....what is the name of that lipstick? ^_^;

  3. I think it's a great idea, I love these kind of 'style diary' posts with makeup :)

  4. interesting post. Now you can use this india business directory to promote lighting products import & export business.

  5. Thanks Anonymous! Reassuring first reply :D

    Aha, we're similar in our application, ChaosButterfly! I often feel like I need to act out a 'theme' and sometimes it even sets my mood/behaviour for the day. So yes, thank you for your feedback :)

    Thanks SilhouetteScreams! I think I'll go ahead with the idea now, hope I don't disappoint :P

  6. as a chem major, i love this! =]
