You may not find all of these in my blog but they're all beauty related :)

CCB - Cream Colour Base (an all-over product that MAC makes)

CP - Custom purchase. When you get someone else to buy something for you and send it to you.

EOTD - eye(s) of the day
e/s - eyeshadow
f/l - fluidline (MACs gel eyeliner)

You're amazing! I've read these abbreviations so many times in blogs and have always wondered what a few of them actually meant!
Thanks for posting this!
I don't know if you want to include it, but I've seen a lot of people using UDPP for Urban Decay's Primer Potion.

I joined one of those makeup forums awhile ago and got confused by that. Everything was abbreviated!

I was wondering what MES and MSF were. Thanks for posting :D
