Does thunder only happen when it’s raining? Do players only love you when they’re playing?
Excellent questions…but I don’t know. What I do know is this: if I spend any more time with the new Make Up For Ever La BohÃ¨me collection, I might turn into 1977 Stevie Nicks!
Which would be kinda cool.
But first…where’d I put my Rumours eight-track? Oh, there it is! Right next to that flowing maxi dress.
The four pieces in the new 1970s-inspired collection of makeup for lips and eyes showcase some of the soft colors, bold prints and flowing fabrics that recently made waves on runways for spring 2012.
Carefree romantic rebels, check this out: the limited edition launch, which just twirled into Sephora stores and Make Up For Ever Boutiques, spotlights eyes with MUFE’s first-ever baked eyeshadow palette, La BohÃ¨me ($39), and a new matte brown Aqua Eye Pencil ($18) called Gypsy.
Lips also loosen up with two new Rouge Artist Natural Lipsticks — one, an iridescent peachy beige called BohÃ¨me, and the other, a reddish coral called Folk ($19 each).
I have reviews and looks lined up, but here are a few pics to whet your appetite…
Okay, the shimmer and soft texture of the baked eyeshadows? WOW! Something tells me that palette’s gonna be a must-have.

What do you think? So far I’m lovin’ these colors.
Not that I need any more TV in my life but…
Are you watching Anthony Bourdain’s new show, The Layover, on the Travel Channel? He spends 72 hours in a city exploring some of the different things to do and places to eat while hanging out with local folks, and one of the things I like about it is that Bourdain usually goes off the beaten path.
For the last episode he went to Los Angeles and spent a chunk of time eating in Koreatown. Now I’m craving bibimbap! It’s a rice bowl dish typically made with veggies, chili pepper paste and a fried egg and/or sliced meat on top. The last time I had it was in Hawaii a couple years ago, but if I close my eyes I can still taste it now…
Damn these PMS cravings.
Hope you had a good day today. Friday is just around the corner.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
