I wish you could come over so we could swoon over swatches of the NARS Holiday 2011 collection and eat some Trader Joe’s Mango Bars (warm out here in Nor Cal today).
I guess a virtual visit will have to do. Come on in, but please take off your shoes first, and um, excuse the knife near the front door.
I watched five minutes of American Horror Story last night (bad idea!), and now I’m afraid of strangers with bloody foreheads showing up on my doorstep.

Wearing Mandchourie Duo Eyeshadow, Campo De Fiori Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner and St. Markâ€™s Place Larger Than life Long-Wear Eyeliner on my eyes; G-Spot Multiple and Miss Liberty Highlighting Blush on my cheeks; and Joyous Red Lipstick and Albatross Lip Gloss on my lips
At first I wasn’t sure how the pieces would fit, but once I swatched it and put it on, the entire collection as a whole made more sense to me.
I’m especially loving the lighter shade in the Mandchourie Duo Eyeshadow, which applies as a shimmery golden dove gray with hints of blue. Gorgeous!
More detailed reviews in the next couple of days, but for now, let me know what strikes your fancy.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
