Bobbi Brown Greige Intense Pigment Liner Swatches

Bobbi Brown Midnight, Black Plum, Forest Intense Pigment Liner

It’s not often that I see liner palettes, so when the new Intense Pigment Liners arrived from the limited edition Greige Collection I was all up in it! Eyeliner isn’t as fun as lipsticks and highlighters but they’re essential for defining the eyes which are the windows to the soul, you know.

Thanks to Bobbi, lining and defining your eyes is now easy and convenient with these nifty little Intense Pigment Liners. You can create a clean a crisp line — like a regular ol’ tightline or a glammed up cat eye. Or you can kick things up a notch and rock an intense smudged, smokey eye. The choice is yours! There’s 3 palettes featuring neutral shades from brown to green to blue that can be used wet or dry including:

On Wednesdays We Wear Pink!

NARS Panic Dual Intensity Blush Duo

Happy hump day! I don’t know about you guys but it’s been so gloomy here all week and I’m dying to pick up my spirits with a little pink. Michigan weather is crazy weird. We went straight from beautiful 90º summer weather to a chilly fall breeze with almost no sun in sight in a matter of days. So I’m looking to brighten my day up with a little pink blush and lipstick a la NARS today.

Manicure Monday!

Happy Monday! Are you ready for some nail talk? Of course you are. ‘Cause it’s been so long since we had a proper Mani Monday! Somehow, I kept getting way too busy and forgetting but I’m on it this week with my new manicure inspired by the new Bobbi Brown Greige Collection for fall. I came across the most beautiful matte Essie polish called Comfy in Cashmere that I just had to try. It’s a cool mauve-y grey with an interesting subtle light blue duochrome effect that really makes it pop. You know I love me some glitter so I searched for the perfect glitter top coat to compliment the unique Comfy in Cashmere. Turns out, L.A. Girl Color Pop Polish in Burst was a match made in heaven. I could hear the angels sing as I applied to my accent nail. So freakin’ cute! I usually go for brighter, bolder nail colors but I’m really digging this muted combo. It’s a great mani to ease into fall with and it still has a bit of edge.

What’s on your nails?

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Blur Primer Review

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Blur Primer Review

Most people seem to struggle and complain about their oily skin problems. But things could be worse. You could have, gasp, dry skin problems. My makeup probably won’t end up sliding off my face by the end of the day but that doesn’t mean that having dry skin is a walk in the park either.

For starters, people with dry skin have to mega-moisturize with lotions, creams, oils and everything in between to keep our skin from looking all flaky and gross. Then we have to layer on more creams and such to combat those pesky signs of aging which develop and show twice as quickly on dry skin. See? Dry skin ain’t easy!
