I know it’s not even technically fall, but before you know it, that aisle at Target dedicated to floaty inner tubes and swimming pool toys will disappear, only to be replaced by the aisle overloaded with candy corn and snack-size Snickers bars (DAMN THOSE THINGS).

I’ll be thinking less and less about frozen yogurt and shave ice and more and more about turkey, side dishes and pie (I’m all about the pecan). And then, invariably, I’ll have to encase myself in a pair of sausage-y Spanx just to be able to fit into those form-fitting party dresses I can’t breathe in, but like to wear anyway, because they make me feel like I’ve still got it (she said, snapping in a Z formation).


My point, and I do have one, is that party season is almost upon us. ๐Ÿ™‚

For some events, you’ll want to go all out with your makeup and really enjoy the whole process of getting ready. Those times are nice…

Other times, you’ll need to get ready NOW.

And it’s those times that Urban Decay’s Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliners really help.

The Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliners

UD recently relaunched this line of sparkly eyeliners, perhaps with parties in mind, because they’re absolutely fabulous for getting gussied up in a flash.

They come in seven fun colors, too, that once set, don’t budge for nothin’, so you can dance to Katy Perry all night long without worrying about your liner melting.

You’re gonna here me ROAR!

You’re gonna hear Tabs roar, too!

With these, when I have zero time to get ready, I like to touch-up whatever makeup I happen to be wearing that day by first blotting down the shine, then reapplying my liner, shadow and lipstick/gloss. Next, I’ll re-curl my lashes, and whack on another coat of mascara.

Then, I grab one of the Heavy Metal Glitters in a shade that matches whatever I’m wearing, and run the skinny brush tip applicator along my lower lash lines to add a sparkly kick to my look.

That’s it!

A meow-worthy Wednesday tune

You know I’m kind of a Katy Perry super fan, right? Well, I’ve been looping her song, Roar, for about two days, with no plans to stop. ๐Ÿ™‚


By the by, if you happen to know where I can get a leopard-print crop-top like the one Katy is wearing in the video, HOLLA!

I’m thinkin’ totally cute Halloween costume.

    Midnight Cowboy looks nice but…TABS! TOO CUTE!

    Please check out Charlotte Tilbury The Rebel palette review on my blog…

  2. Junkshow and Spandex are definitely on my list! All the colors look fun to wear.

    Tabs’ roar is too cute.

  3. Ivy says:

    You are looking ESPECIALLY pretty in these photos Karen! I’m always envious of your eye color too because you can rock any shade you want!

  4. Brianna says:

    Dang it Karen!! You are the expert at getting songs stuck in my head. First, R. Kelly’s Remix to Ignition and now Roar?? All I have to do is keep reading your blog to get a daily playlist going!! lol. Anyway, you look awesome with that eyeliner. I would probably end up looking like a 2 year old who found a jar of glitter if I tried to pull off that look though!! Hahaha.

  5. Sunny says:

    So sparkling! Love your roaring picture and Taaaaabs! Don’t think I’ve worn a glittery eyeliner ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. Rachel P says:

    Love the glitter liners and the look! In the past when I’ve tried to do some texture/color on my lower lid, my long(er) bottom eyelashes always get in the way and I make a mess.. I guess practice will make perfect eventually!

  7. Trisha says:

    If I was judging purely by your swatches, I don’t know if I would be into these. But then when I saw you actually wearing that awesome purple shimmery line under your eyes, I was SOLD. I may have to pick one of these up.

    (Also, I’m SUPER excited for Halloween. Yay! Holiday season is starting!)

    OBSESSED with your makeup in this post. Will definitely be attempting to copy it for my next party!! What else are you wearing on your eyes? I love this look

  11. Kitty says:

    I personally didn’t like them when I tried it before, but after seeing how you used it…..I’ll have to revisit the ones I have. My problem was I used it right on my water line that the glitter gets into my eyes. Bad experience right there. I prefer liners that can be applied on the water line or really close to it, but using this the way you did will work for me.

    That’s a great splash of glitter! I was sure your Tabs caption was going to be “and hear Tabs yawn”. HAHA! Btw, now I’m trying to yawn with my tongue curled up. It’s not really working. ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Cristi says:

    I totally lost it when I saw that picture of Tabs! Too cute! XD

    Love ACDC on you! In fact, I love it so much I just might grab one for myself.
