What up, buttercup? How was hump day? Mine was pretty peachy, thank you very much, and I owe it all to Dior Endless Shine.
“Karen,” it cooed, gently petting the peach shade in the upper right corner, “look at me.”
“Now look away!”
“Now look at me. LOOK AT ME!”
“Are you sure?”
“LOOK AT ME!”
“Okay, okay, I’m looking!”
“Yes! Like that. Look, LOOK!”
“I’m looking, dude. Are you okay?”
“Now look away!”
Dior 5-Colour Iridescent Eyeshadow Quint in Endless Shine #529, $58
Hmm, is it bad when you hear voices coming from eyeshadow palettes?
I hope not.
With the peach shade demanding so much of my attention today, it only seemed right to build a look around it, so I picked out some complementary bits o’ holiday makeup from Chanel, NARS, MAC and Dolce & Gabbana and put together this here face of the day.
Clockwise from lower right: Dior 5-Colour Iridescent in Endless Shine #529 ($58), Chanel Rouge Coco in Patchouli, Chanel Glossimer in Pleasing, NARS Blush in Sex Appeal, Dolce & Gabbana Crayon Intense in 12, Dolce & Gabbana Crayon Intense in 10, MAC Cream Colour Base in Hush
That’s Dolce & Gabbana Crayon Intense in 10 and 12 and Dior 5-Colour Iridescent in Endless Shine #529 on my eyes, NARS Blush in Sex Appeal on my cheeks, and Chanel Glossimer in Pleasing atop Chanel Rouge Coco in Patchouli on my lips.
Swatches from left: Dolce & Gabbana Crayon Intense in 12, Dolce & Gabbana Crayon Intense in 10, Dior 5-Colour Iridescent in Endless Shine #529
What do ya think? Are the eyes too frosty? They’re smokey but not loud. Now I just wish I had somewhere to go.
Hmm, Tuttimelon is open till 11…
NARS Blush in Sex Appeal, MAC Cream Colour Base in Hush, Chanel Rouge Coco in Patchouli, Chanel Glossimer in Pleasing
Oh, about NARS Sex Appeal Blush, the color looks light on my cheeks right after it’s applied, but it appears to darken over time. Kinda weird. Just something to keep in mind.

Another Guilty Pleasure
Ooh! I’ve been dying to tell you about my new book. It’s called Vanished, by Meg Cabot. She’s written a bunch of teen fiction (The Princess Diaries comes to mind).
I have NOT been able to put it down since Sunday. It’s about a girl who gets struck by lightning and develops a limited clairvoyance where she’s able to track down missing kids. When I read “struck by lightning” on the book jacket, I didn’t know what to expect. When people get struck by lightning on Days of Our Lives (sometimes repeatedly), it usually equals cheese, but here it’s actually good.
I like that Meg doesn’t spoon feed everything. It’s pretty well written for a teen book, and the main character doesn’t take crap from anybody. It’s not as heavy as The Hunger Games, which I loved, but I can only take so much teenage gladiator drama, you know?
Anywho, hope your Wednesday went well (w-w-w). It’s Tuttimelon time! I’ll be right back.
