It looks like I got home just in time because a storm’s a brewin’! I had to make a quick trip into the city, which is why I’ve been MIA, but I’m back in Novato now, much to Tabs’ chagrin.

The air is thick and humid … like it’s about to downpour.

First thing I did when I got home — well, the second thing I did, after giving Tabs some treats (he was all, “Woman! Where were you?! I’ve been STARVING!”) — was check out two new collections coming to Estèe Lauder counters next month, the limited edition Pure Color Gloss Sequins Finish Collection and Two Tone Collection for eyes.

One can never have too many sequins, I always say (well…). :) Incidentally, that’s the release I’m looking forward to the most. It features six powerfully pigmented, shimmery glosses in berry, coral, red, plum and nude ($22.50 each).

Oh, fig! — which is how the glosses taste and smell. They also have the thin, smooth consistency of a lip cream yet the shine of a gloss. They remind me of MAC Kissable Lipcolours with a side order of shimmer.

As for the 10-piece Two Tone Collection for eyes, it includes the basics for creating a wide-eyed look — not necessarily flashy, but pretty and practical nevertheless.

It features three new Sumptuous Two Tone Eye-Opening Mascaras ($28 each) — each one has a black shade on one side for top lashes and a colorful shade on the other for bottoms — three Double Wear Stay-in-Place Dual-Ended Eye Pencil Duos ($25 each), and four Pure Colour Eyeshadow singles ($20 each).

Here’s a close look at four of the glosses, two of the pencils and one of the mascaras…

What do ya think? This is certainly not my granny’s Estèe Lauder, that’s for sure. Although I bet she’d rock Fuschia Vibes pretty hard, LOL!

In hair news…

So. The new hair. :)

I didn’t go too crazy because I’ve decided to grow it out, so I asked my buddy Alis to clean up my layers and do a nice side-swept bang (I’m totally over Lloyd Christmas).

I started the day yesterday thinking I was gonna drop the pink streaks, but then Alis showed me her new bubblegum pink dye.


She used a little bit at the tips for an effect that’s not quite as bold as last time.

I think I like it. :)

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

      Hi Paris,

      Fuchsia Vibes is super cool. I could see you rocking it hard along with a cat eye and false lashes, MEOW!

      Oh, that’s a shirt in the pics above. I like it because I don’t have to iron it and it hides my muffin top, LOL!

      Hope you had a lovely Thursday. Do you have any plans for the weekend yet?

      • Paris B says:

        Gonna keep an eye out for Fuchsia Vibes here :) No plans for the weekend. I think the parents are in town which means, all plans are on hold till they decide what they want to do LOL!

  4. Krisabelle says:

    Yayayay! I’m so glad you’re growing out your bangs! A face as pretty as yours shant be covered up with hair! The new cut looks great!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Krisabelle,

      Ah, bangs. Have you ever had them before? I think they’re fun!

      • Krisabelle says:

        LOL, yes, I rocked the bangs from the time I was 3 until I was 17 and grew them out. I’ve never gone back! I was tempted last year so I bought some clip-in bangs and I was SO happy I did! They looked cute for about 10 minutes before the hair on my face was driving me crazeballs. So glad I tired before I cut! I love the look of side-swept bangs on other folks but my hair is too fine and frisky in humidity to kick it pretty-style. Yours look great!

  5. Joyce says:

    I’m liking Cosmic Pink the best. It looks so wearable and perfect for everyday. =)

    By the way, parts of the Estee Lauder Two Tone Collection are already available online at Macy’s and Nordstrom.

    Oh man those glosses look wonderful! Love the subtle color you added to your hair, it looks great! I’m thinking it’s time to chop off all my hair and donate it…I did that about 2 years ago and it was so freeing!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Marisol!

      (Waves from down the street.) Yeah, he did, but he only noticed that it was just a teensy bit shorter. No mention of the pink AT ALL!

      Here’s to hoping there’s no crazy weather tonight!

  10. Sara says:

    Love the new hair! I love how subtle and pretty the pop of pink is at the tips!

  11. Chryztyne says:

    girl, you have that glow in this photos. I love your new hair, too! Stay pretty!

  12. Love your new hair! The lipglosses look really nice. They remind me of the Milani ones we’ve seen recently. Oh and your glam granny :) I can totally see where you get it from! xx

  13. mn says:

    Estee Lauder was the first makeup brand I used growing up! This is a REAL change to the way things were back in the day. (old lady voice… When I was a girl there was no such thing as lip glosses.) I really like these glosses.

    PS- the new hair look is very sophisticated.

  14. Fieran says:

    Your new hair is gorgeous. I’m itching to get some crazy blue highlights but I have really black hair that will probably not absorb anything without bleaching and I’m terrified of bleaching so .. oh well :)

    Cosmic Pink looks wonderful on you. I think Pink is so your colour.

    Love that photo of your granny touching up her gloss. So cute :)

  15. Nina says:

    The streak is gorgeous — subtle but so fun!

    The glosses are gorgeous and I think they suit you and your granny to a T! :-)

  16. Yelena says:

    looks like somebody got a hair cut :) i like it! and how adorable is your grandma touching up her lipstick!

  17. Tee says:

    How sweet is your granny???

  18. Katrina says:

    I would love to put pink in my hair again….but I’m blonde, I dunno if it would work out as well as yours! I dunno.

    Also your grandma is adorable! Ehehehe.

  19. Tina B says:

    I adore the photo of your Granny! As far as colors, Violet Rain is where it’s at for me. The pink addition to your hair is a nice touch!

  20. Melody says:

    Nice! I really love the purple passion gloss. Your granny is so with it 😉
