What’s up, ladies? It’s Friday, WOOT WOOT!
Okay…that little outburst actually spent the last of my energy. Now I’m plum tuckered out because, like a doofus, I stayed up too late last night watching the Jersey Shore. Lame, I know, but I just couldn’t pull myself away. Needless to say, coffee and I have been BFFs today (err, coffee and makeup).
Before I crashed and burned this afternoon, I tried the new Chanel Le Tentations de Chanel Holiday 2010 Collection on for size, and ooh, baby! — I’m lovin’ these chocolate browns and playful pinks.
Sure, the collection doesn’t exactly fit your standard holiday fare, but who cares? If you like it, you like it. And besides, it’s not like early October is the dead of winter, right?
In these shots here, that’s the Tentation Cuivrée quad atop the Fluid Iridescent Eyeshadow in Splash on my eyes, Tweed Fuchsia blush on my cheeks and Magnolia lipstick topped with Pink Pulsion Glossimer on my lips.
Even in my semi-conscious haze (NOTE TO SELF: Stop watching bad reality TV after midnight!), this wasn’t a difficult look to do because of how well the colors in the quad work together.
Oh, and I didn’t really appreciate this until I had it on my skin, but the light pink shade has the cutest little bits of glitter; I’m looking forward to wearing it as a single wash of color over the entire eye.
The dark brown shadow’s also full of surprises. It has this subtle duochrome quality to it where it appears to flash from dark brown to plum to bronze, depending on the light. SO HAWT!
Now wouldn’t you know it? Here I am all decked out but too tired to party.
Wait — did I just say party? LOL!
I don’t know… Maybe I’ll just hit the Whole Foods salad bar, you know, ’cause that’s how I roll.
Let me know what you’ve been up to today. Do you have any plans this weekend? I’ve got a personal project — to build the perfect (or at least good) ’90s hip-hop/RNB playlist, so shoot me your suggestions in the comments.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Speaking of ’90s RNB, remember Mint Condition’s Pretty Brown Eyes? ‘Twas my jam back in the day.
